i'm not gonna peddle to you; not for that price. i'm very upset that this reprint has happened, and i'm really not in the mood. the most i will take off is $10 for trade. i will ONLY take off more for cash ONLY.

Edit: Forgot the sideboard -- Runed Halo > Meddling Mage, as Halo is harder to kill and still hoses the same cards + others like Valakut triggers, Eidolon of the Great Revel, etc. Batterksull is still a liability in the deck, since Kommand is still around Death's Shadow, Grixis, and Jund Midgrange. Also, Surgical Extraction has been working better for me and a bunch of the others on Esper since you can Ghost Quarter + Surg a tron land. Besides, you can still Snap back Surg while RiP actively hoses Think Twice, Snap, and Logic Knot. Also, Fatal Push really is the truth, and there should be at least 2 in the 75. This'd be a great place to put the extra Blessed Alliances from the mb too if you wanna keepthem around for Burn/Drazi/Boggles/Infect.

@TheDevicer A lot of your suggestions are pretty sound, but there's one that most of the experienced pilots over at MTGSalvation (myself included) agree that Lingering Souls isn't actually very good in the deck unless you're specifically targeting BGx (and even then, there are better options like Gideon Jura, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, and even Grave Titan).

Also, I would say that only the first 2 Snappys are necessary. The 3rd becomes more attractive if you're playing 3+ Pushes maindeck, and even moreso if you're on Secure as the wincon, but 2 has really the been the sweet spot for the deck for a long time.

Anyways, as for the OP's decklist -- 3 Blessed Alliance is quite too many in the main, and the Evacuation is too slow. Playing less than 4 Cryptic is not where you want to be, as Cryptic is part of this deck's late game engine. In addition, 25 lands is a no-go, especially with no Serum Visions main (which isn't a problem, Serum Visions is still a controversial topic for Esper). You really need the 4th Colonnade anyways. You also should also be playing the 3rd Knot too. Finally, I would just cut the Teachings for the 2nd Secure since only 2 possible copies of Secure in the game isn't enough, since the first Secure is usually just to chump block. That and that only having 1 Secure is weak against decks with sweepers. (You could also cut the Secure for a White Sun's Zenith and possibly leave the Teachings -- though Teachings has always been super slow in my experience. Effectively, adding 4 mana to a card's cost isn't ideal even if you tutor for the card.)

DruneGrey Thank you! Unfortunately, we didn't pull any Goyfs or Lilis haha. I wish we did! They'd probably have been listed above too. Unfortunately, our box wasn't actually that great -- we just barely made break-even at $200 for the box, which is below average.

The link.
My bro and I are selling some Modern Masters 2017 cards on ebay that we opened from our box, all at a little below TCG Mid price (we're paying shipping). We're beating most of the current ebay price listings. Most are in small lots, and we're really looking to sell them in lots (a few of the cards in the lots are basically throw-in freebies). That said, check it out if you're interested. The cards:

Lot 1: 1x Snapcaster Mage and 1x Serum Visions (Price: $37.50 free shipping)

Lot 2: 1x Death's Shadow, 1x Ranger of Eos, 2x Soul Warden (1 foil) (Price: $11.00 free shipping)

Lot 3: 10x Signets (1 Dimir, 1 Golgari, 2 Gruul, 1 Izzet, 1 Orzhov, 1 Rakdos, 2 Selesnya, 1 Simic) (Price: $12.20 free shipping)

Lot 4: 2x Inquisition of Kozilek, 2x Path to Exile, 1x Terminate, 1x Olivia Voldaren (Price: $22.31 free shipping)

Lot 5: 1x Foil Deadeye Navigator, 1x Foil Simic Signet, 1x Foil Simic Sky Swallower, 1x regular Thragtusk (Price: $11.31 free shipping)

We can use the median I suppose. I'd actually prefer to keep the Decay if possible, though. Would you do my end for your Creeping Tar Pit (TCG Median $18.07)?

Sorry about that. I was trusting tappedout's pricing, but obviously it isn't correct. xD

That said, I'd be willing to swap my Pridemage, Redcap, and Batterskull (New Phyrexia), totaling $18.84 tcgmid, for your Celestial Colonnade ($19.00 tcgmid).

Hey bro, could I swap my Qasali Pridemage and Murderous Redcap for your foil Detention Sphere?
