I need to cut for Negate and/or Quench . Maybe move into Bant colors for protection from colors. Losing Red kills the deck though.

I also need more 3 CMC creatures to make Neoform effective.

Thanks for the feedback, I can't believe I forgot Once Upon a Time ! That card is just asking to replace Anticipate in a Simic build! I also cut a land for it since I figured a fourth copy could well replace land #24.

I could see Quench being useful since it's awkward to be holding a Negate against a creature-based deck, but I figured that Bonecrusher Giant and Cavalcade of Calamity along with Murderous Rider ensure that Negate always have a target, and it hadn't really felt dead, whereas I have had a couple of matchups against even aggro decks where Quench felt dead.

How did you fit Opt ? I would personally cut my last two Unsummon since Brazen Borrower does the job better, though for now I'm going to keep Unsummon since I feel the deck generates enough value and selection that I won't need Opt , but I might change this weekend if Unsummon continues underperforming.

The rakdos deck sounds difficult; I don't recall going against a Rakdos build (the one I did was a Knights deck during my mono white grind). Would Unsummon be helpful in that case? I feel like that would create a large tempo swing, especially if you catch a Knight of the Ebon Legion or Dreadhorde Butcher that's in the middle of going off, which might actually justify keeping a couple.

The main problem matchup I anticipate right now is Field of the Dead but I think some of my loss was due to me Unsummon ing their Risen Reef thinking I'd reduce their triggers, forgetting that they could just recast and get an extra "free" trigger.

I'm personally going to hope that the meta is flooded with RDW again next weekend and fine-tune the deck as I go since I don't have it completely crafted (don't want to use up wild cards with the potential of winning, and only have so much time to play).

I play roughly the same deck in MTGA right now, but I'm using 4x Once Upon a Time instead of Anticipate .
I'm also running a few Quench instead of Negative and squeezed in a few Opt as well.
Currently testing if I can manage with 22-23 lands.

I'm having a bit of trouble against Mono Black and Rakdos though, especially if they start pumping their Knight of the Ebon Legion or Dreadhorde Butcher early.

I noticed your 9/30/19 update stating that you included Thrill of Possibility to the main deck, however it is still appearing in the maybeboard. Regardless, here are some of my thoughts on the build:

I hope these helped, and let me know your thoughts!

Why Cancel ? There are better counterspells out there. If you want a catch-all counterspell, the real counterspell is a mana cheaper, or you could go with Sinister Sabotage , or use a combination of Quench (although that's not great late-game which is what this deck likes), Essence Scatter / Capture , and Negate . Cancel is just one of the worst ones out there.

That sounds really critical, but this deck isn't horrible. I do think it's very slow for modern though, even with delaying your opponent with counterspells, you're going to get overrun before your deck gets up to operating speed. Try and find some more ramp or some cheap blockers like Fog Bank (although not actually Fog Bank . Too limited).

Oh. I thought the guild kit version would still be legal, but yeah it won't be. I've replaced it with Quench . Thanks!

Why play Once Upon a Time ? Why not use 3x Negate and add an additional Quench . 2x Brazen Borrower would also be another consideration with 2x Negate instead.

Kazierts on What kills me makes me stronger

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.
