Neat. Your oldest deck, unplayed and full of creatures!

This deck needs a couple of Dredge cards. Urborg and Yavimaya as well.

I don't like Jester's Cap here because you have no way of reusing it and does it more effectively.

Planar Portal seems awkward in . Diabolic Intent seems appropriate with this strategy.

Nether Spirit is a unique card. It's perfect in your creatureless strategy but it's going to fail here. Back in the day MBC utilized it with Contamination. I would cut one for the other.

Pernicious Deed Golgari staple for a reason.

If it's cards within the deck you could eliminate the problem befor it becomes one with cards like Sadistic Sacrament, Jester's Cap and many more similar cards

So I probably should of mentioned some of the problems with the deck lol.

  1. Ok, yes Knowledge Pool is a cast trigger, so it wouldn't trigger if the spell is already cast. This is a problem with specifically Knowledge Pool and Prototype Portal. In order do both in 1 turn would cost 10 mana and would only happen as fast as turn 4 if you have Tron active with 2 towers. So more than likely you would be getting this combo if portal was under a pool to begin with or beyond turn 4.

  2. This would still be a lock then, either cast Bronze Bombshell and take 7 or let your spell be ate by the pool.

  3. This is true, but my other modern deck right now is Izzit Coin Flip, so I'll take that chance. :P

  4. Now I forgot about Boseiju, Who Endures. And Shattering Spree may still go under the pool, but it's replicated copies would be a problem. As you said will need to find solutions for this. Spellskite would work I guess. Oh yeah and to fit the theme, Jester's Cap could hit 3 Boseiju lol (I don't this this is good). And Pithing Needle can stop Boseiju also since it's an activated ability. This is just off the top of my head.

  5. I just wanna lol

I'm trying to go through and see other things that are problems and if I would have to choose one it would be that Mystifying Maze only hits attacking creatures that the OP has, so I can't use it to temporarily get rid of Soulless Jailer so I can cast noncreature spells. The only thing that comes to head atm is Endless Sands, but I don't like that. Will be looking for something for that as well.

Honestly, I feel that magic has taken a weird direction. It seems entirely creature focused these days. When I play some of my decks against newer players, it's rage inducing for them. I play a lot of enchantments and artifacts that affect the entire board at once. These players say it's unfair or that they only lost because I have older and expensive cards. However, years ago magic explored more with enchantments and artifacts than they do now. Take for instance Tainted AEther. When I play with this card against newer players, they are forced to remove it or lose. Maybe I just enjoy control decks in general, but magic used to print a LOT of these powerful cards. It seems that the R&D team for wizards have mostly moved away from these powerful kinds of cards and focused much more heavily on creatures and creature abilities. Also, I love counterspells and tutor cards. This is something you don't see nearly as many of anymore unless they have some ridiculous cost associated with them. Long gone are the days of newer cards similar in cost to Counterspell and Mana Drain. I have consistently won more games against people by mass control than some cheesy combo deck. I guess that's why I still play cards like Jester's Cap. By exiling 2-3 cards from their main deck's combo, they concede because the rest of the cards in their decks are useless. In a way I find that playing against more modern decks and cards is a bit boring. Just my random thoughts on magic over the years and my experience with games against all kinds and types of decks.

The comments in this tread are accurate. When a lightning bolt can remove the threat, you need to be running one. Honestly, this is a big argument I make to un-ban Hullbreacher in edh. Though, I know it isn't really constructive to say "removal takes care of it" for what you are asking. It's just a design space that has been filling out in recent years that was previously occupied by enchantments and artifacts. And honestly, I prefer them as creatures even with the mindset wizard's has of "creatures do everything". Meta wise you need to shift to strategies that make hatebearers bad (i.e. boardwipes, Jester's Cap effects to pluck bearers, or do player removal by focusing the player). They have their place like any other strategy, and can be countered.

Profet93 I agree. The very reason I have this is you guessed it, the storm meta in my playgroup. If anything, this hurts me most so I'll have to be extra careful and assess my manabase very well before dropping this. This would only makes sense to even play if I already have enough mana rocks and discounts to not bother. The Stone Brain and Jester's Cap are also worth mentioning if I just wanted to stop their wincon.

But yeah, thank you for all of your suggestions, man. I'm beginning to understand how to better optimize what this deck is trying to do.

I would cut Mirri's Guile personally. I think the card is just ok. Not great and not necessary. I started playing during Ice Age. Jester's Cap was my first ever favorite card. It also allows you to remove huge combo pieces or mass removal from anyone's library.

I would be super evil and add Jester's Cap to this.
