I've seen versions of this with a full Seismic Assault/Swans of Bryn Argoll backup plan sideboard rather than just vortex, one even featuring Life from the Loam.

Its a surprisingly good backup plan. 'treasure to find value' works.

Blue doesn't feel worth it here, and running 3 cards with Ayula's Influence is a nightmare. I'd cut it.

At least 2 copies of Seismic Assault would fit well here to machinegun creatures and deal damage to your opponent's face.

I'd also up the land count a bit. 30 seems like a good number for a deck like this, and you'll have space if you cut all the blue cards. Explore can replace some Growth Spiral.

It's too bad that stripping the deck to basics makes the turn 4 swans combo impossible, since you can't cast seismic assault t3 and swans t4.

I'm still partial to the 1x Treasure Hunt + 1x Seismic Assault + 58x Basics version though

@Starsky2814 im about the Mana Web over the War's Toll . I tend to build archenemy decks so forcing people into combat isn't my thing. im more along the Land's Edge , Seismic Assault , and Molten Vortex Route

Defense Grid does the job and works with Throes of Chaos . I've tried it and its solid. Maybe some number? Its a hard match-up no matter what. Even a few more Throes of Chaos could be helpful, since its potentially a spell every turn they have to counter. Grafdigger's Cage makes a difference against control and their Snapcaster Mage . Noxious Revival could be a good way to mess with a number of those interactions too. Its the "snappy, sanctuary, counter-spell" combo we're really worried about since its so broken. I mean we are blue.. so maybe just better counter spells ourselves. Narset's Reversal is extremely fun. I've definitely beat blue more than once playing: Narset's Reversal your Narset's Reversal over and over again until you run out of mana. Its probably the most fun way to win that counter war! :)

Some number of Leyline of Sanctity is probably correct for hand disruption metas.. which is where we were at before the most recent degeneracy. Now I think Dismember looks pretty good.

Looking at some of my old write up, Trinisphere would actually be pretty good against the current Cascade decks. Damping Sphere too. Side out our Throes of Chaos for that hate, since it affects us too.

We're incredibly consistent and only lose by one maybe two turns most of the time in a turn 3.5/4 modern meta.. If wizards prints a land that flips into a 7CMC planeswalker we're golden but they'd never do tha-

As a rule I wouldn't go below 39 lands when sideboarding unless you just drop the fast Seismic plan. We're almost like Rack and prefer to be on the draw since we can turn 2 Seismic Assault with Gemstone Caverns .
