Ugin, the Ineffable Discussion

ShodoPhan on Big daddy himself playable?

That is a good point. I don't like Liliana, Dreadhorde General because her removal is contraproductive in strategy that's midrange main wincondition and that is beating down in fair way. In general play big Tarmogoyf and protect him for any cost and clock down your opponent. Card draw from killing your own creatures are cool, but you want to take out recources from oponnent on your value creatures. Ugin, the Ineffable is kinda same as big Lili but in way that you will miss card that is under token. Also his passive is meaningless, but color free is nice and removal is quite good (but 4 loyality for 6 is meh).

Garruk, Cursed Huntsman in worst case is 3 for 1 -> You play him, use minus to kill creature (1), draw a card (2) and if he dies do removal or attack that is (3).

And I'm currently testing The Great Henge + Rotting Regisaur as card draw, ramp and big stats mini combo because I'm not really keen to spend big money for Tarmogoyf and Bob.

Liliana, Dreadhorde General or Ugin, the Ineffable might be a better walker to compare Garruk, Cursed Huntsman to, and even then, I’m not sure he compares favorably to either. They both protect themselves as well as garruk does, and both take time to really get going, but liliana gives more value and ugin isn’t color locked. Don’t get me wrong, “big daddy” is a house, but he’s one that takes a ton of time to build... but you don’t always have time to build a house like that in modern.

If you’re going full blown morphs, which it looks like you are, perhaps consider Mystic Forge . In the same way Ugin, the Ineffable sees your morphs as colourless so too does the forge. It allows you to say cast Willbender face down off the top of your library as in the rules it’s considered colourless for the purpose of morphing

Solar Blaze is another board wipe, but it's more situational.

I would personally replace Justice Strike with Response / Resurgence (or possibly Lava Coil ).

I would also replace Ugin, the Ineffable for Chandra, Fire Artisan or maybe Chandra, Acolyte of Flame . Chandra, Fire Artisan is cheaper and still gets you card advantage and damage. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame gives you damage, can put a counter on The Royal Scions or lets you reuse a spell (ex: Dance of the Manse or Deafening Clarion ). For the same mana cost you could get one of the other Mythic Chandras, but neither of them give you the card advantage.

For the sideboard it really just depends on which decks you think this one will have the most trouble with, and then you sideboard in to deal with those colors. For example, if your deck does fine against aggressive red decks, then there's no need to sideboard in against red but you should sideboard in against, for example, if your deck does bad against control or black decks.

Devout Decree is the one card I want to really point out the value, it's 2 cost to exile a creature or a planeswalker and it gets you a scry, so it's basically a better Prison Realm for Black and Red. Aether Gust has the nice effect of being able to counter, with the downside of them being able to choose to put it on top of their library (at least I believe this is how the card works).

Cavalier of Thorns already has some good removal if you need to get rid of an enchantment or two. So, Disenchant may not be necessary.

Reckless Air Strike is a card to consider if you want artifact removal, but I don't personally think your deck needs it.

Sure thing mate, brewing and testing is the best part of Magic!

Looking at it again though, I think we'd be better off going all in on the tempo or not at all, as right now we still don't have enough pressure.

I believe though, that it would be more fun (and competitive) with a controlling deck that only plays maybe some amount of Gadwick, the Wizened and God-Eternal Kefnet as actual creatures, but then having Commence the Endgame and Enter the God-Eternals on top of that. This way you could still profitably play Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and The Magic Mirror AND you gain access to awesome cards like Thought Erasure , Drown in the Loch , black removal and maybe Liliana, Dreadhorde General and/or Ugin, the Ineffable . Now you can control them out, out-grind, mill them (or yourself for Jace lulz - Mirror is good for that too) and apply decent late game threats.

I realize that is quite far from where you started though... Either way, good luck!
