Also you have too many 2 drops. Removing the Nightveil Sprite will fix that.I think Gutterbones is a good idea to fix your curve if you don't play the cat combo. It will pressure control decks a lot more.

The deck looks good but it is too slow for the meta. Aggro decks are probably going to destroy you (especially mono red) and you are very vulnerable to board wipes making the white/blue control a hard matchup as well.

I would personnaly cut all 4 copies of Nightveil Sprite because it is way too slow for little upside.

An interesting idea would be to add 3 copies of Cauldron Familiar, 4 Witch's Oven and 4 Emry, Lurker of the Loch. You only need 1 cat in the graveyard to keep sacrificing it to the oven, emry is a very good card that does what the deck wants and can get the oven back from the graveyard and the oven/cat combo is very good against aggro. The cauldron also as other upsides like preventing your creatures from being exiled from banishing light (for the shepherd). It is just an idea though, it might be bad because emry is also quite a slow card and the cauldron and cat doesn't synergise very well with the rest of the deck apart from energizing with themselves. I think it is worth a try though.

Also I think Ashiok, Dream Render is worth considering as well. Oh and Doom Whisperer can be an insane finisher, if you surveil for a long time with Creeping Chill and probably kill them if you have Devourer of Memory in play (instant speed removal would be a disaster though).

That being said I really like the idea of the deck and been thinking about building something similar for a while.

Thanks BlueDracolich1313!

The things I've been strongly considering lately are: Sage of Mysteries replacing Nightveil Sprite Gutterbones replacing Discovery / Dispersal

so the way I see it you're actually quite close (33 basic lands means 25 basic lands brings you up to 82)

Sooooo creatures

  • Zephyr Sprite (basic 1 drop flyer, but a 1 drop flyer is good on its own)
  • Wydwen, the Biting Gale (3/3 flyer with an ability that gives you bounce to save itself or add faerie casts)
  • Wasp Lancer (3 mana faerie flyer, that's it)
  • Vendilion Clique (ok, pricey but a good way to say no to an incoming problem)
  • Thieving Sprite (another way to say no to an incoming threat)
  • Silkbind Faerie (untap effects are very exploitable, although often rare)
  • Silkbind Faerie (easy to be a 3/3 flying vigilance for 3)
  • Ringskipper (this one is kinda mostly filler but could be obnoxious to get rid of)
  • Quickling (ok I think this is a diamond in the rough, 2 mana, get a body AND save a faerie from impending doom)
  • Oona's Gatewarden (i know defender BUT WITHER IS SUCH A GOOD MECHANIC)
  • Nightveil Sprite (2 mana 1/2 flyer that lets you look at the top card of your library, with the option to toss)
  • Mistbind Clique (forcing your opponent into an all out play can create quite the opening, timing it before the end of a phase limits their options on what they can do with all that mana)
  • Metropolis Sprite (With anthems that ability could be nasty, especially since early game flyers are often going unblocked)
  • Knacksaw Clique (I hate myself for suggesting this monster of a card but even if you aren't stealing their cards, your permanently removing them and that's just nasty)
  • Faerie Vandal (drawing 2 cards in a turn isnt hard in blue, so in many cases it will get +1/+1 every turn)
  • Faerie Mechanist (counts as an artifact AND sifts for more)
  • Fae of Wishes (that adventure lets you pull solutions out of thin air)
  • Eye Collector (1/1 with a decent ability)
  • Brazen Borrower (again not budget but another great adventure)
  • Faerie Guidemother (1 drop white with an ok adventure option)
  • Phyrexian Metamorph (clone that can hit artifacts always good, especially in EDH)
ANTHEMS

Other Stuff

My sanity is lasping soooooo…. Also might want to think of artifact / enchantment recovery cards and good ol’ Elixir of Immortality

wallisface on 'The Popsicle' Mono Blue Tempo

I feel like Magus of the Bazaar , Nightveil Sprite and Nimble Obstructionist are all bad choices for a modern-matchup here. Siren Stormtamer isn’t great either.

You really want to be running the full playset of Thing in the Ice  Flip, though i understand you may not yet be able to from a budget standpoint.

I think this deck can do ok against modern decks, but your current budget restrictions (i see you’re also missing Serum Visions ) will hurt, and will make winning reliably a lot harder.

I'm not the best when it comes to deck building but I can see there's lots to improve.

What to cut: - Darkblade Agent - Completely pointless and does not help develop your deck's strategy neither is it a win con.

Love Yuriko so much! I have a deck for her myself and she's quite good. Even if my approach is a bit different from yours, I suggest you to up your creature count a little bit.

I think the sweet spot is around 30 creatures, with more evasive and ETB creatures you can. You can even consider some on attack triggering creatures, like Nightveil Sprite .

All and all good work! Keep it on!
