So the neat thing about this deck is it has a core that you build around. I was considering building this to play when 8-rack got boring for me but decided against it because it's a mean deck, almost meaner than 8-rack lol. All that being said, if you haven't checked out the deck techs I'd start there and just build up with what you think would work best in your meta. Playtest a lot! That will help you weed out cards you think are "cool" and cards that are actually synergistic and good for your build. I'm sure you already know all this though. The deck looks like it has the core already. Have you thought about manlands for protection and getting a little more damage through to move the game along? Creeping Tar Pit Mutavault maybe? Also, what's the back up wincon which goes along with the manland question when the mill plan doesn't work? Have you thought up a sideboard yet? I'm genuinely interested lol. Looking forward to seeing more updates, take care!

Played in 2 modern tournaments in the last 2 weeks. Getting better but realizing there are a lot of decks I still don't know. So, threat assessment is still lacking. Trying to study up on the meta in between work and school lol. Take care all!

ok, a couple of updates!
10-08-18 Played a super set against big affinity.
Game 1 - Held off my opponent with Fatal Push until i could drop an Ensnaring Bridge and Liliana of the Veil. Bontu's Last Reckoning cleared all leftover creatures and The Rack coupled with Shrieking Affliction killed him.
Game 1 - My opponent emptied his hand fast making The Rack seem like a good turn 3 play. Ensnaring Bridge kept his creatures from swinging in until he dropped a huge Walking Ballista and shot me dead.
Game 2 - Emptied my opponent's hand and Surgical Extraction all his ballistas. all was going according to plan until he swung in under my bridge with Inkmoth Nexus and added counters to me with an animation module or something like that. I was holding a card i couldn't get rid of. Moved on to next set.
Game 3. Everything was going right. All cards were locked down by Ensnaring Bridge and Liliana of the Veil until Walking Ballista came out and pinged me for my last 3 life. that was the set. Went 1-2 but was extremely fun and learned alot. This was good practice for the tournament happening the next day. Will post details of that tomorrow.

So it's easier to post updates in comments rather than post in updates.
Played against Abzan midrange 2 nights ago and went 2-1. Was stoked!
Game 2 - My opponent got so many creatures out that I could not keep up. Once I found a bridge he dropped Flickerwisp and swung in for lethal which was 24 I think?
Game 3 - God hand for me. Turn 1 IoK into Turn 2 Thoughtseize into Turns 3 & 4 Raven's Crime dropping a Liliana of the Veil turn 5 followed up in this order Ensnaring Bridge, Shrieking Affliction x2 and then The Rack. Was awesome.
May go to the local tournament this Tuesday, itching to take the deck out. Will see. Take care all.
