Not to rain on your parade, but Swords to Plowshares , Brainstorm and Counterspell are not modern legal. Your best options in those slots are Path to Exile and Opt / Serum Visions unfortunately. Anticipate is also a decent option. As for Counterspell , it may get printed in Modern Horizons but we won't know that one for a while yet... Remand , Mana Leak and Logic Knot are your options for now in that slot.

On another note for cards to think of adding, Spell Snare is an amazing card as a one or two of, along with Cryptic Command . only really needs 2 Snapcaster Mage s to be honest, and they are well worth it in terms of unlocking play lines and can be really fun to play with. I'd really try to get those. Vendilion Clique is also a slugger... however is often relegated to the sideboard.

I think you meant, "dilute," BirdClaw, lol.

What I see in this deck is a very high mana curve that doesn't break until T4, and then, only by 1. I suggest cutting creatures down to 18 and filling those slots with disruption instants. Counterspells, fogs, bounces, destroys - Negate , Holy Day , Vapor Snag , Hurkyl's Recall , Pongify , Path to Exile , Nevermore , Journey to Nowhere , Oblivion Ring , Detention Sphere , Cast Out , Seal Away , Pongify , Imprisoned in the Moon , etc.

Since you don't have any one drops to play T1, Temple of Enlightenment seems great here.

Let’s say I had Lightning Greaves attached to one of my two creatures and someone attempts to let’s say Path to Exile the creature who does not have the greaves. Could I move the greaves over to negate the target of my creature?

Th3El3x That assessment seems very in-line with what I've seen in testing. But I think the uwx and bgx matchups are still better than 50/50. They might not be the insane 85/15 that they are with your list, but I don't think they need to be.

Xica with access to all of mardu removal, any aggressive creature deck is already pretty favored. Path to Exile puts in lots of work. And unfortunately Declaration in Stone doesn't help Grixis. For this deck specifically perhaps Detention Sphere would be more appropriate as a wide-hitting exile effect? I like that it can be used against things other than creatures.

Hey, wallisface, first of all, thanks for the input.

1) Yeah, i've been thinking about that, I've had interations where i splash some white for a Path to Exile , but manawise it gets too complicated. Maybe some more black cheap killspells, i'll think about that.

2) Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver works towards the maintance of the exiled cards, so the processors can "process", 3 mana, exile 3. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is more of a way to control topdecking, with a focus on the 0 ability.

3) Delay is there, again, to power the processing mechanic, since when it occours, i should have creatures to exile it.

4) The Dimensional Infiltrator works with Ashiok, Delay, and the other mechanics for processing, i'll get 3 free creatures when i cast it, it IS a truck in late game. Not only that, i can sac the creatures to get mana. What do you suggest i trade them for?

5) The urza lands are a joke, i forgot to remove them.

Thanks for the big ups and the recs yall. What I really need is help figuring out what to cut for upcoming technology in war of the spark. I am open to the idea of running more card advantage gimmicks like Recoup but I don't think the rest of the recs so far make the cut for these reasons...

Price of Progress blows me out when I play reactive instant to stop opposing combos. Dire Fleet Daredevil gets me a spell but didn't make it red so it can't be conspired in most situations meaning dire fleets ceiling is much lower than Recoup or Regrowth . Flashfires won't really hit my meta and even when playing in the wild my combo isn't as weak to Path to Exile as counter spells. For Howl of the Horde I just don't ever want to attack so raid feels bad.

just a really quick suggestion that i saw- to solve boros's ramping issues, you can actually set up this cool interaction with Path to Exile and Young Pyromancer where you exile the elementals and ramp yourself. With feather on the field you can do this every turn and its a really creative way to get land on the field. .

My pet card for this deck is Veilstone Amulet . It puts in work.

You are a little creature light especially if you want a lot of targets for mirrorwing and zada. I see what you are going for with Swiftblade Vindicator but I think there are better creatures for this deck.

Psychotic Fury can't target zada or mirrorwing, so it didn't make my list.

Seize the Day underperformed for me. Without a lot of vigilance creatures it ended up doing the same as giving one creature double strike

Other considerations for the deck, Akroan Crusader , Path to Exile (can be used on your own tokens to ramp you), Goblinslide , Intimidation Bolt , Guttersnipe , Electrostatic Field , Thermo-Alchemist , Sentinel Tower , Reliquary Tower
