Charming Prince Discussion

So I found this on the worlds best source, reddit. "The only ones I found that allow you to flicker your own lands are Teferi's Time Twist and Oath of Teferi . So for the low price of 2 mana and a card, you can now turn Akoum Teeth into Akoum Warrior Flip, a red 4/5 creature with trample and a +1/+1 counter from Teferi's Time Twist." So yes, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling could flicker Valki, God of Lies Flip into the other side. You would also be able to choose an option with Charming Prince .

I forgot to mention this, but does a card like Charming Prince also work.

Blasting Station -> Altar of Dementia
We can do the same instant win combo, interactions, etc, but this also allows for self-mill, so you can get more things in grave that Sun Titan and Emeria, The Sky Ruin can play for free instead of casting them (and usually faster too!). Plus the mill used aggressively outside of our combo can really throw some decks off of their feet.
Pilgrim's Eye -> The Birth of Meletis
Does a Pilgrim's Eye and makes a Wall of Omens like we used to have (minus the draw, but our Mentor of the Meek can help with that). The little bit of extra life-gain from this, plus what we can get from Charming Prince makes Lone Missionary kinda redundant, so I can replace him. Considering using one of his slots for a 3rd Altar of Dementia , 2 of them to move Aura of Silence to mainboard (since we don't have the ability to deal w/ Artifacts and Enchants w/ Oblivion Ring anymore), currently unsure what to do with the last slot, so it'll be a 3rd Blade Splicer as a placeholder.
of course, now I need to plan a new sideboard

I've typically seen Orvar decks in U/R. This build is interesting, but there are some flaws both on the macro and micro level.
In the bigger picture, you don't really have a way to win the game. Ideally in an Orvar deck, you have a few creatures that work well when copied (in U/R this would be your Goldspan Dragon s and Sprite Dragon s), but there's not really anything like that here. At least, nothing that ends the game. I think the best possibility for that would be Elder Gargaroth , because if that gets copied it's basically game over.
On the smaller level, let's look at individual card choices. Selfless Savior can easily be replaced with protection spells like Shell Shield or Sejiri Shelter Flip, which also fit the theme of targeting spells. Sea Gate Stormcaller doesn't actually work particularly well with the deck. Orvar won't trigger from the copy it makes, and you're copying pretty low-value spells in general. You have Professor of Symbology here, but no sideboard to learn from. Even if you do get some lessons, she's still not the greatest value and has little/no synergy with the deck. Charming Prince is generally a decent value card, but again, there's not really much synergy here. You don't want to be copying things with Orvar just for minor ETB value.
I think some better cards to copy with Orvar are big creatures like the aforementioned Elder Gargaroth or something that also benefits from being targeted/buffed. Maybe the new magecraft mechanic can help. Clever Lumimancer , Leonin Lightscribe , or especially Quandrix Pledgemage are all good creatures for that reason. All of these are also good independent of Orvar, though he does make them much better.

Don't know how well it'll hold up in the metagame - modern hasn't been my jam for a while, but Pyre of Heroes ?

Hey, first of all thank you for sharing this nice deck. What are your thoughts about Admonition Angel ? I really want to find a slot for it in this deck.

You are absolutely right with the competitive level in 2021. With more and more powercreep over the last years, white decks in particular got worse and worse. Here is an nice explanation of whats happening atm. White is not the color of removal. It was way more competitive in 2016-2018 but today it holds up pretty well and i think its the most fun deck i own to play.

Just checking in to say that your suggestions from our last discussion have proven to be very interesting!
Skyclave Apparition + Charming Prince is huge! The Prince replaces the Wall and is a human, the life gain/flicker options which are nice to have to complement the scry 2/draw of the Wall, plus its attack of 2 can sometimes dissuade some attackers. And the Apparition is a good replacement of the Oblivion Ring , with added devotion and the fact that they never get the card back (and the flicking with the Prince is just yummy!)
Emeria's Call Flip is great, always a positive as a one-of/two-of, and the small synergy with Lyra Dawnbringer and the fact that she is legendary has made me prefer her to Baneslayer Angel (or Linvala , as I don't have too many creature-based combos in my meta).
Mistveil Plains + Secluded Steppe are doing a lot more than I expected! Like you said, with the Wayfarer you can pay to draw a card, or to do it every turn, which in practice has been more interesting than the Arch for me. And finally, the Mistveil Plains are not only great with the Steppe, but also with any legendary angel an opponent would have destroyed/made you discard as you can bounce the Lancers with the Prince to get your angel back! It can really make the difference, and my angels have come back to play this way infinitely more in a few games than Emeria, The Sky Ruin has ever done.
Deck is very smooth now, a joy to play again! I won't pretend it's competitive in 2021's Modern state but I'm having a great time and you still get a fair amount of wins against non-control decks! Cheers :)
