Yeah, I think Bolt would be a more major consideration for the MB than the mini-sweepers. I just hate having 100% dead cards if I can avoid it.
Maybe even Forked Bolt?

Drat, you're right; I was mixing it up with K Return.
Maybe Firespout is a reasonable consideration?

I think Sweltering Suns would be better, then, since you can cycle it in dead matchups.

I would condense down off of the 1-ofs; do 2+ of the best ones. Also, regarding the lands; Castle Vantress is a strong consideration as a 2-of.
Also, if you're playing Fae, you'll want at least 3; otherwise, cut it entirely, I say.

K Return would be the premium sweeper of that variety, though, but O Stone is just impossible to beat.

Also - with no Fabled Passage , I think less basics makes sense.

Love the idea! Only rec I have is to sub Verdict for Settle the Wreckage in the board, so you don't wipe yourself.

Too many 1/2-ofs.
Drown in the Loch , Utter End , Render Silent and Murderous Cut seems like cards that are often pretty bad; I think you should either go all in on Absorb , or consider Sinister Sabotage or Void Shatter for easier color requirements.
Also - badly wants Narset, Parter of Veils , and some number of wraths.

Love it, but think it needs mana dorks - 6, maybe even as many as 8, honestly. Hitting Heretic Cathar on two, CoCo on 3 is devastating.

Thank goodness. Now that modern actually has to compete with pioneer for players, they'll have to clean up or lose market share.

I think between the hand hate and 2-cost removal, you can justify dodging Pushes. But Push is almost always a good card, as well.

Well this thread went to crap quickly.

While super spicy, I don't think it's viable. Doesn't affect the board when it comes down, doesn't give you rainbow mana for the exiled spells, and even restricts how many you can cast. You'd be in BG, probably; needs the green for ramp and more black for hand hate, as getting it countered would be incredibly painful. Probably needs U for mill, too. Overwhelmed Apprentice , Minister of Inquiries , maybe Merfolk Secretkeeper (eh).

Agree. It's just a waiting game, at this point.

8vomit I'm not so much making a personal judgment call as a general observation of how things have gone in the past for MtG at large, where a majority of people would prefer not to lose to infinite combos - especially if they're reliable. I'm just not sure how reliable Heliod would really be, in Pioneer.

Ashiok and Dispute mainboard seems really bad in a lot of matchups. Have you considered other options for the main?
