the problem i can foresee with this list is your not flipping eryo until turn 4 at earliest and that's to slow for modern. the deck needs some mana neutral cantrips of some powerfully and cheap recastable spells

cards the come to mind are Manamorphose,

Mishra's Bauble, Tormod's Crypt with Repeal,

Finale of Promise. with cantrips

Memnite Ornithopter + Hurkyl's Recall Retract with Emry, Lurker of the Loch

even Faerie Impostor, Greenbelt Rampager, Glint Hawk would all help

Damn, now I'm trying to decide between Faerie Impostor and Faerie Seer ... I need more one-drops, but if I replace Imposter then I have to bring back Familiar's Ruse which upsets the apple cart all over again.

What to do, what to do...

Alright, I've reconfigured things a bit. I got rid of the Familiar's Ruse (which has been so good for me for so long) as well as Vapor Snag . This let me beef up on Faeries, increasing the total to 30. The potentially reusable Brazen Borrower x3 gives me the ability to bounce their stuff, while Quickling x4 and Faerie Impostor x3 to bounce mine. Vapor Snag is more versatile than Faerie Impostor , but being able to add in more 2-power flyers for only one mana each really helps with the clock, and this deck benefits from having as many faeries as possible on the board.

Mana Leak , Counterspell and Spellstutter Sprite gives me 12 counterspells, potentially more since the sprite can be reused. I also threw in an additional Island to bring me to 22 lands total.

Since the deck is aggro-tempo, I think you can probably drop the Cryptic Commands, as they are too slow and worse than Remand here. I assume you're using Unsummon instead of Vapor Snag because you can bounce your own creatures?

I think you could fit in a singleton of Spell Snare in there, just because it's really satisfying when it works. Also, have you tried testing with 4x Aether Vial? Maybe 1x Faerie Conclave? Other potential faeries are Sower of Temptation, Faerie Impostor, Glen Elendra Archmage (a bit slow but a singleton can do some work). Maybe Chart a Course for more draw or Favorable Winds to pump your creatures. Just throwing out ideas. Looks good! Although Vendilion Clique is dope im serious

I am looking at giving them a try in modern with some mill theme shenanigans while poking and prodding with small, evasive creatures. Most of what I am considering right now are faeries (Oona's Blackguard and Faerie Impostor, for example) and getting multiple Thieves' Guild Enforcers online, especially with Phantasmal Image seems to me to be able to play a solid game, at least against decks without many creatures.

Balaam__ if you're on a tighter budget, you could consider using Faerie Impostor or Faerie Miscreant, imposter relies a lot on Aether Vial though, so it really comes down to testing out different variation ideas that work for you... this is a semi-competitive deck build, so it has a fairly hefty price tag on it, but I put a lot of time and care into building this particular deck, and I've had it for a while and got many of the cards at a lower cost so it wasn't as big of an investment as it would be now. I also am not too familiar with some of the latest cards out now, but maybe there is something new you could find to substitute cards you don't have.

First of all Shroud has been phased out in favor of Hexproof - even though that is not what you want for this thing. Second, I agree with WizardOfTheNorthernCoast that shroud + indestructible + cannot be sacrificed makes it near impossible to interact with, which is not good. You can just try to outpace / out RNG the sacrifice count.

You need a bounce cost Faerie Impostor or a Merciless Eviction to get rid of it (well rid is so and so with the Faerie).

Not a fan of this card.

Probably no: Dream Eater at 6 mana is too expensive. Faerie Impostor forces a different creature, defeating the self-bounce. Aven Riftwatcher is good for quick lifegain but doesn't do enough.

On the fence: Abundance. Yes, it's helpful, but at 4 mana, does it do enough? It would help in a pinch, but how often would I truly use it?

Easy Yes: Aluren, Sylvan Library, Cloudstone Curio.
