zapyourtumor on Tainted remedy

I'd cut the bad stuff and lean 100% into the enemy lifegain theme. This means up to 4 Tainted Remedy plus 4x Kavu Predator , and cut Idyllic Tutor , Serrated Scorpion , Twilight Prophet , Gonti's Machinations , Roiling Vortex , etc.

I know Blessed Alliance and Rest for the Weary are used with Tainted Remedy, but the best cards with Remedy are ones that have a "drawback" that involves your opponent gaining life and Remedy/Kavu turn that drawback into an advantage. I see you already have Wall of Shards and Grove of the Burnwillows , which are classics. Some other ones are Oust , Fiery Justice , Solitude / Condemn , Devour Flesh with Nature's Claim for the sideboard. Alms Beast is also funny.

Grubbernaut on Semi-Budget U/W Control

One easy and functional change I'd suggest is Oust or something similar over Path. BTL might be coming up, but at least per mtggoldfish, Blitz is still the most-played deck. Giving them lands just hurts so, so much.

The difference in price might also let you afford some other sweepers, which would be nice in a list like this.

I also REALLY like Behold the Multiverse in UWx.

I think it can, but 2cmc spells are a little bit harder to fit in. However, being able to gain life is significant, as well. It's possible that it's best as a sideboard card; I'm honestly not sure.

I also think conditional sweepers like Settle the Wreckage are maybe okay if you're hitting two creatures - but again, there's a huge downside to giving them lands.

Overall, I like Oust best, in the current meta. After that, you could consider 2cmc stuff, perhaps.

As long as prowess remains prominent, it might be worth considering Oust , Condemn , or similar removal over Path; giving them lands just hurts a ton.

Regardless, I dig it. Cheers!

Grubbernaut on WUR blitz

Path to Exile is pretty bad in the mirror; you might consider Lightning Helix , Burst Lightning , Oust , etc

It's okay in the SB, but giving a blitz opponent more lands is a really big cost.

Grubbernaut on Bring in from outside the …

I'm not sure about cards that specifically disallow "wishing" in cards from outside of the game, but typically wish decks are a bit slower. For that reason, cheap counterspells ( Spell Pierce , Force of Negation , Mystical Dispute , Negate , Dovin's Veto , Spell Snare , etc) are often effective.

Alternatively, just go faster!

What are his actual win conditions? Depending on your colors, there's tons of good removal in modern to hit creatures. Fatal Push , Bloodchief's Thirst , Heartless Act , even cheap things like Doom Blade or Go for the Throat if you want budget options. Path to Exile , Oust , Condemn , and of course sweepers like Wrath of God , Damnation , Supreme Verdict , Extinction Event , etc

It really depends on what his deck is specifically trying to do, and also what kind of deck you'd like to play.

Grubbernaut on The Many Colors of Blade ~ Omnath Blade

I can get behind this list. I would rec Bolt STRONGLY over Path in the current meta, though - or even Oust .
