Klaive Evasive Action sees all the land types of duals as well. Which means turn 2 with only 1 dual in play it's usually a bad Mana Leak (but I won't typically have up the Mana to cast it anyway), then turn 3 on I usually have another dual and it becomes better Mana leak. Spell Snare is hugely impactful in the current meta, hitting everyone's favorite wincons of Flash and Thassa's Oracle. It also hits a huge amount of Counterspells and a large number of common draw engines, as well as several tutors as well. I have continued to be impressed by it. We are on a fast enough combo that I feel I benefit from having caverns in my opener where it functions as a better Mox Diamond. It doesn't feel great to draw midgame though (though sometimes mox diamond is even more dead midgame) and that is something to consider.

I think your running a land or two short and Evasive Action is a bad card in this list, if you are only running 1 basic; Spell Snare why, why, why. Gemstone Caverns is also a dead draw in this deck, I'd only run it if you are on a Flash + Protean Hulk combo plan.

YES! I almost never see tymna/kraum decks. +1 from me

Mine is more aggro based, where yours is clearly control heavy. I'd suggest Evasive Action since it can be a better Mana Leak when combined with shocks/four basic land types

I hope you'll take a minute to check out my deck and tell me what you think! Cheers

Font of Mythos is too slow to my opinion, would suggest Howling Mine instead.

also, Evasive Action isn't modern legal. you could take Delay/Mana Leak/Remand instead.

generally... I think the deck is nice but you could put more creatures. your opinion (and your meta)...

BTW - welcome to T/O!

Or you could sideboard 1 or 2 depending if your opponents play certain mana colors.Evasive Action-Best counterspell for this deck.Gaea's Might-Pretty ok.Herald of Leshrac-Good for getting tons of lands at once (It's 1 land per age counter on it.Joyous Respite-Better bountiful harvestManaforce Mace-to get even more Pow. and Tou.Might of Alara-Similar to Gaea's MightPlanar Despair-BoardwipeSpore Burst-MehTromp the Domains-Pretty good for the deck you want to make.Voices from the Void-I like itUlvenwald Hydra-This is a very good card for the deck you want to make
