Force of Negation
If it's not your turn, you may exile a blue card from your hand rather than pay this spell's mana cost.
Counter target noncreature spell. If that spell is countered this way, exile it instead of putting it into its owner's graveyard.

wallisface: I agree with you on the point that modern is currently quite healthy.
Regarding your argument of reprinting: It is just not enough to reprint these cards, but they need to be reprinted in a lower rarity.
It's nice that expensive cards like: Wrenn and Six, Force of Negation, Seasoned Pyromancer, Cavern of Souls, Emrakul, Kozilek, Ulamog etc. get reprinted in Double Masters 2022 if they get reprinted as Mythic Rares, but all in all that just feels like a drop in the bucket.

Delightful. If you had a Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, what would you cut for it?
Also: The lone Counterspell kind of sticks out. Yeah, there is Commit / Memory but you will probably not counter something for 4CMC. So that solitary counter doesn't do much exept two meager damage off the top. Force of Will would be perfect in that spot but it is probably way out of budget (Force of Negation too, even though it gets reprinted in Double Masters 2022). So I would propose cutting that counterspell entirely and replace it with something fun. A card you could replace it with that gets surprisingly little attention and is heavily underplayed in Yuriko is Mana Severance. This card is amazing in any Yuriko late game. Right now you average CMC with lands is around 2.2 or so. Without lands it's 3.38, that's a 50 % damage increase for your Yuriko triggers (without top deck manipulation) and you will dig through your library much faster. You should be careful with it, obviously. If you suspect an Armageddon this will probably be one of the cards you'd discard.

@DinGo90 I could definitely see Shadow of Mortality replacing Draco. Although it's "only" 15 cmc, it's a card that we can can pretty reasonably cast for BB, unlike Draco. The reason I'd still like to play Blinkmoth Infusion is that it's blue, so we can exile it to Force of Negation, Force of Will, etc.
Let me know what you think!

You could also use Apostle's Blessing for similar results.

thanks ! My testing has definitely shown that there's not enough graveyard support to warrant playing 4x Murktide Regent. In an ideal world, Murktide Regent is meant to be a finisher that comes down backed up by Counterspell or Force of Negation. Grim Flayer and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip are meant to be tempo plays that help fill the graveyard in the early to mid game. I think Grim Flayer is very vulnerable to Lightning Bolt and Unholy Heat. I am enjoying this deck, but I feel like I need to pick a direction, either focusing on early game with Delver of Secrets Flip or mid game tempo with planeswalkers like Liliana of the Veil and Jace, the Mind Sculptor.

Just wanna say I for one would really like to see some Modern Horizons 1 & 2 reprints...like a "Modern Horizons Masters" or something because Solitude, Fury, Force of Negation, Seasoned Pyromancer and others are just so so expensive.
I would really like to see cards that are in high demand just printed and reprinted over and over again so people can afford to play with them... Print higher rarities/alternate artwork for the collectors/investors.
Idk I bought into fetchlands when they where North of $50 bucks for any of the enemy fetches... Id be lieing if i said I wasnt a little bit bitter to see Scalding Tarn cost half today as it did when I bought my playset... but on the whole im honestly just happy to see that game pieces are more accessible to players... I want to get my hands on more modern horizons staples but dont wanna pay through the nose in the same way I did for fetch lands..... just gotta be patient I hope.
please give use meaningful Modern Horizons 1&2 reprints WOTC

Nice build! I’ve posted some thoughts below - not sure whether commenters above have already mentioned these (so i might be covering old ground), but anyway:
I would have expected to see a large quantity (3-4?) Collective Brutality spread across your mainboard/sideboard. I imagine burn decks will give you major grief without this card to keep them in check.
Another good option for your sideboard would be a few copies of Ensnaring Bridge. Your 1/1 fairies can still easily fly under this, but it will give you a lot of free wins versus various creature-based decks.
The two cards i’m most sceptical of in your deck are Force of Negation and Scion of Oona. Force feels dubious because you’re a sudo-control deck without any real ways to gain hand-advantage. This will mean that Force becomes quite likely to put you behind in handsize, and so let your opponent stabilise later in the game It's also worth noting Force does nothing to stop one of your biggest threats, Fury. I’m skeptical of Scion because you’ve already got a lot of 3-drops, and i’m not sure the +1 buff to your creatures is worth it (fells a bit “win more”)

Earle swears by Toski, Bearer of Secrets.
Dakota, if this is an Animar test I am going to ace it. Remember that the best Animar lists are like creature based spellslinger decks. The closer your list gets to 50 creatures the better. I was at 48-49.
I know you are tired of Craterhoof Behemoth but you did include Finale of Devastation. The best decks focus their strategy and wincons. That may not be what you want. The deck certainly looks fun to play.
You need Animar on board for three turns I would think. The turn you cast him. The second turn where you cast lower mana creatures to pump up his counters. And then turn three where you play your big threats. How are you going to protect him from spot removal? Better yet, what is your strategy for combating board wipes?
Dito for Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern, Ketria Crystal, Sol Ring, Talisman of Creativity and Talisman of Curiosity. Cut all this for Sylvan Safekeeper, Spellskite, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves and some more ways to stop board wipes like Swan Song. I ran Force of Negation and Force of Will in my Animar list but you don't have the blue to support those cards.
Even with the big mana creatures you are playing would Purphoros, God of the Forge not be considered?
Hardened Scales was printed by some Animar lover at Wizard's of the Coast. It should be in here.
A creature based deck without one of the allstar blue creatures, Consecrated Sphinx?
I play Mystic Remora in every deck that has blue. But, that is me and it isn't an auto include in casual.
