I wonder if Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God doesn't belong in the sideboard. With Chandra in there already, you may not need another powerful plainswalker, but I appreciate his skill set.

Oh darn, sorry I missed him when I looked the first time. I can't delete this comment, only edit.

I love the deck, and I am building it in paper now! It's worked really well when I playtested it, managed to loop playing Expropriate and stealing all opponent's legendary permanents then ultimating Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and winning in a 30 min long turn so good job finding a fun new way to end games. I might just say though, there is one card Signpost Scarecrow which doesn't seem like it belongs there. Also another thing, by running half your basics as snow and half not, it counts as a different name to Field of the Dead

I've been playing some Modern lately ever since the unbanning of Stoneforge Mystic as this is one of my all time favorite cards as well as all time favorite archetypes. I love control decks in constructed play, I love the style, the thought required to play the decks correctly, the feeling of solving a puzzle when you manage to win with them. Naturally with SFM's return I brewed up a handful of decks, got as up to speed on the Modern Format as I could, and started playtesting Stoneblade brews and the various top decks in the format.

Having tried a number of different variations of the Stoneblade concept against the format staples I began to notice a bit of a pattern. Namely, that the wins with the archetype were most often not coming from lines related to SFM at all, but rather establishing complete control over the game state and abusing Jace, the Mind Sculptor to Fate Seal the way to victory. All of this got me thinking about what I enjoyed most about the deck and I realized it wasn't actually SFM at all.

It was Jace.

The dude is a bad, bad mama jamma. I got to thinking about things some more and wondered if just building around Jace as the primary focus was a concept that could work. I decided on Grixis colors and got to brewing. I tried a number of ideas but eventually realized Jace alone wouldn't be getting the job done as often as I'd like and started looking for a partner in crime for him. The usual suspects got tried like Liliana of the Veil and seemed underwhelming. Then I figured if I was working this angle why not give something that seems almost unplayable in Modern a shot: Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God . The play pattern of the deck tended toward lots of longer games, a lot of draw-go hand shredding that disrupted play patterns of format staples to allow for these longer game play patterns to be relevant, and a lot of fun testing the idea.

Having put the concept through some paces I've arrived at what I think is actually a viable core of the deck. which can be found here: Bolas Control. What I'd like from any of you who might happen to read this is your thoughts on Modern in general, potential tweaks and alterations to the deck that could improve it, matchup considerations, and general questions, comments, and concerns.

I think this concept could be quite a bit of fun to toss around as an idea and fine tune, so let me know what ya think folks

For some reason whenever I try to add Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God to a list or my collection it always marks it as a foil. I've gone back and edited it repeatedly, but whenever I see it, it's back to being a foil again. Even here I did not use the foil tag, yet it is displaying as foil.
