Hi KamiMakz, thanks for the feedback.
Good suggestions, the only one I have tried is Arboreal Grazer. Unfortunately I did not find it very good. BoP is the only real consideration for replacement, and the advantages of BoP is that it lets you potentially keep 1-2 land hands, that it fixes mana in a 4-color deck, and that it can block fliers or be an evasive attacker with Assault formation. The problem with my tests with the grazer was that I had to mulligan more and the benefits didn't really pan out. I think Grazer is excellent in a 1 or 2 color assault formation deck, but IMO this deck needs the birds to smooth things out.
I could see Forbidding watchtower replacing Dryad Arbor, as Arbor hasn't really impressed that much in this deck as you usually can get several creatures out. I don't think we can replace any dual color land or basic, again this is such a greedy mana base.
Jeskai Barricade looks super interesting actually, especially to protect Doran or Zur, I can see it replacing Selfless Spirit (maybe put the spirit in the sideboard if facing boardwipes). I like having a spellskite in the main, since it's so good against infect and bogles etc.
My intuition is that Tangle Angler is too slow for Modern at 4 mana, and that the "alternative wincon" undermines your main wincon when you wish you had a lethal attck but you don't because one of your creatures doesn't deal normal damage. it would have to replace a Zur and I just don't see it.
Brave the sands looks nice but I'm not sure it's worth lowering creature density for or replacing an enchantment. Probably it should replace a Detention Sphere if used.
Again thanks for the feedback and please tell me about the results if you test the deck with your suggestions.
