A little jank, but seems very fun! If I could make a few recommendations, at would be to remove Strategic Planning for the much better Impulse and 1 Mountain for an Ash Barrens. I know that Strategic Planning dumps the cards in your graveyard, however i feel removing Exhume and those other yard-matters cards can open yourself up to great draw spells like Preordain, Brainstorm, and Ponder. I guarentee this will make your deck way more consistent. But again, this is just my two cents.

Remember Force of Will and Brainstorm are banned on premodern format

wallisface on Mill, suggestions are welcome :)

Some thoughts:

  • Brainstorm isn’t modern-legal.

  • It feels like you’re trying to win by milling as well as by creature-damage. That’s generally going to lead to your deck being weak at achieving either plan. I’d suggest focusing on either milling or doing damage, not both.

  • Fraying Sanity is a pretty bad card, so whatever deck you end up running, i’d suggest ditching that. It might sound good, but it plays terribly.

xtechnetia on Could Fetchlands be banned?

We've known how broken fetches are for a long time. DRS is a great example of a card that's, technically speaking, been banned for the sins of fetches. And yes, they will likely only get stronger with time, as triomes prove.

Fetches are part of Modern's identity, though. It doesn't really matter how broken they are in theory - banning them is equivalent to destroying Modern and creating a new format. Modern will sooner ban a thousand "DRS" type cards than it would ban fetches, because the question isn't "are fetches the real problem?" (they are), but rather "given that fetches will be legal, what then is problematic as a result?"

It's the exact same story as, for example, Brainstorm in Legacy. Every metric under the sun says it should be banned, and it will also never, ever be banned, because doing so would be to destroy Legacy and create a new format.

Thanks for the suggestions! Brainstorm isn't meant to cast the miracle, its main use is to take Thunderous Wraths that are sitting in my hand in the early game and put them back on top of my deck to draw for the next turn, as well as allow for easy Delver of Secrets  Flip flips. Otherworldly Gaze sounds cool though I'll try it out!

Sweet deck. However two notes.

You can only mirale a card if it's the first card you draw in a turn, so if you randomly find one off a Brainstorm or whatever, it is not miracle-able. Also, i would recommend throwing out Opt or Brainstorm for Otherworldly Gaze because it is pretty universally good in your deck and also has synergy with Serpentine Curve.

NV_1980 on Vela The Darkness Comes For You

Hi,

I would have to second the suggestions of ajphisher, nagonjin and elgosu1337 when it comes to the availability of mana. In all honesty I would cut maybe 6 of your beaters for this. Also, you don't need the swords all that much; most of the creatures in your deck are inherently hard to block already and Vela makes it even harder. I would also get rid of Doubling Cube; in my view it doesn't work very well in color combinations that have low inherent mana availability anyway. So that's a potential 14 cards you could allocate to more mana and maybe some more draw too.

I would recommend adding Arcane Signet, Gilded Lotus, Mana Vault and Thran Dynamo. In order to filter through your deck quicker, I would also add Sensei's Divining Top. For additional draw, I would really consider Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study. I think Mana Drain also fits your strategy. The remainder of the space you've got left I would fill with more draw, counterspell and cheap removal opportunities. Some ideas would be Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Counterspell, Feed the Swarm, Pongify and Rapid Hybridization.

Good luck.
