Glad I could help!

Of course, that's just a 5-minute rundown. There are theoretically infinite situations in which you'd rather have fetchshock, and same for not having fetchshock.

For instance, if you're actively milling yourself and/or removing cards from your deck, then fetches aren't as good because there's a chance that they'll fizzle because the best shock isn't there. But if you have Life from the Loam you like fetches to make sure you hit your land drops. Which means the Dredge archetype, while it wants some fetches, should also be using a manabase that functions fairly well without fetch-shocking, so they have to create a weird manabase that accommodates both aspects.

I'd also say that sometimes, painlands are actually better than unfetchable versions of the og duals(Shivan Reef v Volcanic Island). There are situations where they are just better -- and situations in which they're terrible.

Also note that filter lands(Mystic Gate and friends) immediately lose to Damping Sphere.

One more note: budget really influences your manabase. Most of the time, it is correct to go fetch-shock. I'd say fetchshockcheck is the best for your average 2 color deck(example for UW: 4x Flooded Strand, 2x Hallowed Fountain, 4x Glacial Fortress). This is because most decks in modern really benefit from fetches. In fact, a lot of the cards on the modern banlist would be fine if fetches didn't exist. Additionally, a lot of the best cards in Modern are only all that good because Fetches exist. Think Fatal Push. Even Tireless Tracker is far less powerful without fetches.

Rorolith on Opponents will do nothing

Hmmm. Maybe try a big artifact creature in there like Blightsteel Colossus. You have LOTS of ramp to cast artifacts with and not a lot of artifacts to cast. You only have 3xBurnished Hart and 1xKnowledge Pool with 3xVedalken Engineer and 3xGrand Architect.

Clash of Wills can be replaced by Condescend as it helps to dig for what you need and does the same thing as Clash of Wills.

Unless you're working on a budget, very good lands in modern for your colours of deck is Flooded Strand and Hallowed Fountain. Have fun with your deck :)

I would say that Green is a lot too slow for this sort of thing. This is Modern -- your 3 drop should be winning the game. Maybe a slight exaggeration, but you should remember that.

Here's a quick decklist:

That list needs some trimming, but it should function. Please note that you CAN NOT use a fetch-shock manabase, at least not a traditional one. You could exile your one copy of Hallowed Fountain with Serum Visions, and then if you need white and all you have is a Scalding Tarn.... you're screwed. You'll probably want a Fastland heavy manabase -- Spirebluff Canal, Seachrome Coast, Inspiring Vantage. Additionally, you might even consider Arcum's Astrolabe, but that's preference.

Nice deck. About the only suggestion I'd make would be your manabase. If you can afford the upgrade, Hallowed Fountain and Flooded Strand are worthy inclusions.

What are your thoughts on Watcher of the Spheres?
