NinjaReaper90: all three spells would belong to the same player in my scenario. Worldfire exiles hands, you can't just cast and resolve Worldfire and then cast and resolve another spell. My scenario is nothing that can not already be done with Oblivion Ring or Fiend Hunter exiling your own creature. I was just mentioning what I thought was the simplest interaction outside of the counter spell interaction.

Hey, hey. Here's some recommendations for some board wipes and spot removal!

Obviously being a creature focused deck, you don't normally want too often to clear the board, but sometimes we have no choice. Which is why I'd look at cards that are either one-sided board wipes, situational/modal wipes or Evacuation type effects.

- Cleansing Nova classic modal that works for 2 situations.

- Time Wipe Saves your commander before wiping the board.

- Austere Command bit pricey but very good.

- Evacuation as I mentioned before, super good at instant speed. Highly recommend this one.

- Devastation Tide The miracle doesn't work as well for you, but it's still a good option.

- Curse of the Swine an exiling board wipe just for whatever you want to target.

As far as spot removal, white does that incredibly well with Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile but there's a few others that double up for utility with your creature strategy.

- Incubation / Incongruity

- Oblivion Ring or Fiend Hunter because creature based removal works great for you

- Beast Within deals with everything

Hope this helps!

I figured Fiend Hunter could replace Plague Engineer in the main because it's got more relevance in a broader range of matchups. Like, the second Engineer against Jund is gonna be a near-dead card while the Fiend Hunter that would be in its place wouldn't be.

hungry000: Fiend Hunter is a cool idea in here, though maybe better for the sideboard? Not sure why I don't have a Thragtusk , it's just about the best 5-drop SB card I could evolution into! Acidic Slime makes some sense, and could replace a Damping Sphere since it's good against Tron as well. It probably is time to jam an Ouphe in there along side the 2 Stony Silence with all the Urza's out there. I do love me some Thrun, the Last Troll , though it does feel harder to make room for in this list..

How about a Fiend Hunter in the main (probably in place of a Plague Engineer ) for some tutorable removal? You can do the permanent exile trick with Ephemerate , too. I would also recommend playing a few one-of creatures in the sb, like Thrun, the Last Troll , Collector Ouphe , Thragtusk , Acidic Slime , etc etc.

My first modern deck how Humanity works. by using raging aggro by putting stuff like Thraben Inspector , Boros Elite and buff them with stuff like Coat of Arms or Honor of the Pure could be good late-game buffs.

Removals- In this case, there will be no stuff like Path to Exile because it's kinda budget so I've have decided to put stuff like Fiend Hunter , Banisher Priest or fast spell-like Celestial Purge , Seal Away , Sunlance etc.

Mana ramp- Since this an aggro deck so it should include too much mana ramp for the help, But this case for sparing I've have decided to include Talisman of Hierarchy , Pillar of Origins for an emergency.

Wow very interesting deck!! Crib Swap could be cool here since it is an Ally (Munda sees it), is decent removal, and triggers Mana Echoes. Other cards you might consider are Universal Automaton , Gemstone Array , Bag of Holding , Changeling Berserker , Changeling Hero , and Fiend Hunter (while not an ally, Fiend hunter enables a loop with Changeling Berserker and Changeling hero that would give you an arbitrarily high number of ally entry triggers. You can end the loop any time by exiling a different creature.)

@ ritz_crackaz : well, depends on what you are missing, but if it is something like - Mox Diamond , - Mox Pearl , - Mana Crypt , - City of Traitors , I think you would want to add replacement points in Sol Ring and Strip Mine if you have access to them. Even Mana Vault could be okay but not necessary IMO. Lotus Petal is another option for fast-mana alternatives.

If you wanted some other options for replacements for spells in the deck, I love Reality Smasher for some cheese and cards like Fiend Hunter and Banisher Priest can be solid. There's a pretty big list of great hate-bears that aren't in this list as well, like Vryn Wingmare and Sanctum Prelate . In the right meta, those cards are bonkers. Really stoked on the new card Charming Prince from Throne of Eldraine as well...
