Looks fun! Surprised to see Dismember in place of Fatal Push though - with all your little 1 toughness creatures, Revolt will basically always be active. You could run Faerie Miscreant to start the beats early, help keep your hand full later in the game, and make a T2 Spellstutter counter a 2 drop rather than just a 1 drop. I don't think you need the shadowspears at all in mainboard, but if you're intent on keeping them I'd drop to 1 of at most. Cyc rift is pretty weak for modern - by turn 7+ you should already have killed your opponent with flying beaters. Consider runnning countermagic or removal in this slot - something like Drown in the Loch, Mana Leak, or Murderous Cut. Quickling is also pretty weak for modern - I'd consider replacing it with something like Vendilion Clique or Snapcaster Mage. Insidious Will is fun, but is outclassed in just about every aspect by Cryptic Command. Hand disruption would also fit nicely in this deck, something like 5-7 total copies of Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, and/or Collective Brutality.

These are all just suggestions though - you should play the deck however you find it most fun! If you want more specific suggestions on what I'd cut and what I'd include, feel free to let me know! Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

My sideboard continues to change frequently. I have a 4th Archmage's Charm, Cyclonic Rift, and Day's Undoing at the ready. Surgical Extraction seems likely to stay in. But the rest are merely placeholders. I’m not exactly sure what I should replace them with. Pongify is still a valid option. Having early removal may prove highly beneficial. Mystical Dispute and Stubborn Denial are also useful counters against other blue/counter decks.

Now Relic of Progenitus is a very useful card, although is does have its drawbacks.

It can consistently remove cards from your opponents graveyard. But it’s second ability works against you because it will exile your graveyard as well. It does not work well with Day's Undoing. It is also not blue, nor is it an instant or sorcery, therefore you cannot combo it with Thing in the Ice  Flip or exile it with Force of Negation.

Surgical Extraction Is nice, it can be cast for free, it can be cast at any time, it can also be recycled with Mystic Sanctuary. The downside is that you must always pay 2 life to cast it (this deck has no lifegain whatsoever). Both cards have their downsides and neither one fits exactly, although Surgical Extraction works slightly better for this kind of deck.

Vendilion Clique is a useful card on its own, yet it doesn’t fit exactly into the deck. I don’t have enough bounce in the deck to consistently utilize Clique’s ability several times over. Now the 3/1 flying is nice, but I already have that with Brazen Borrower. The upside to the Clique is that you get to look at your opponents Hand and get rid of a problematic card. However, Borrower can act as an Instant spell (Which can trigger Thing in the Ice  Flip. Borrower can also remain in exile, this way it won’t be Bounced by Thing in the Ice nor will it be shuffled back into the deck by a Day's Undoing.

Venser, Shaper Savant is certainly a placeholder, it does pretty much what Cryptic Command will be doing (but with less options).

Kefnet the Mindful used to be in the deck. It was paired with Day’s Undoing to immediately become a 5/5 flyer. The problem is that he takes to long to setup. His 4 mana draw/land bounce ability won’t be useful until the late game. In the end, he ends up taking space in the hand or field, but doesn’t actually do anything (with a hand of 7 cards Kefnet is formidable, as soon as you start to play spells, Kefnet is useless again, essentially, Kefnet discourages spellcasting).

Aether Spellbomb was a card I enjoyed playing in the main deck. However, I found that it couldn’t combat every situation. Eventually it made its way into the sideboard as I needed to make space for Brazen Borrower (a mich more useful and potent card). Even though it has saved me in the past, I am thinking that it just can’t keep up with the rest of the deck. For one, it cannot be exiled with Force of Negation, for another, it is not an instant or sorcery, therefore it cannot trigger Thing in the Ice  Flip. I think it has served it’s purpose in the past, but I don’t see it coming back into the deck.

This is what I would end up with when considering what I want to keep in my sideboard:

1x Archmage’s Charm 1x Cyclonic Rift 1x Day’s Undoing 3x Surgical Extraction 4x Mystical Dispute

I still have 5 slots left to fill.

I’m thinking about perhaps adding some sort of protection against burn decks, maybe some more countermeasures against other counter/control decks, and I also feel like my defenses against Aggro may need to be tightened up.

Always love to see a Scab God list that isn't tribal zombies. My build isn't up here yet, so I can't link you to it, but if you're going for a reanimator strategy then two cards that are invaluable are Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur as a powerful win condition that can fuel further reanimation plays, and Champion of Wits is a phenomenal early body that digs you deeper, fuels reanimation, and has great reach if Scab God himself keeps getting answered with his own Eternalize. Other than that, I can reccomend Venser, Shaper Savant as a strong tempo play that, of course, is a damn fine target to reanimate to get that instant speed disruption twice. I'd also reccomend finding a way to slot in Baleful Strix , as I feel your curve is a bit top-heavy and the Strix is a solid value card (that you can get twice). A personal staple of mine in 90% of the blue decks I play and build is Thada Adel, Acquisitor as she has powerful utility at every point in the game to pur you ahead at virtually no cost in resources to yourself and can stop powerful artifact-based combos before they happen if you happen to find those troubling you over in your playgroup. At the very least, she's a repeatable ramp spell, though I do understand she makes people VERY salty so if you're worried about that feel free to disregard her. One last suggestion I have that isn't exactly budget friendly is Vendilion Clique for a combination reason between Venser and Strix. It's repeatable and powerful interruption in your deck and is lower to the ground, but I understand that they're a bit out of some people's price range. She also works great as a one-two punch with Venser himself to have your opponent "put that thing back where it came from or so help me".

Anyways, +1 from me for the Scab God representation! He's a hell of a fun deck.

Honestly. It’s a great card to protect the THINGS without worrying about your opponent playing counterspells and the like to disrupt protection spells. Also nice at bouncing Vendilion Clique or Venser, Shaper Savant .

Not sure what your budget is, but Vendilion Clique also combos with Tunnel Vision , and could be a handy way to remove a threat an opponent has drawn. Also, why not Telepathy ? I love this card in monoblue control for the power it gives you in deciding when to save your counterspell, and how much it can mislead opponents. Everyone will have big hands, so it'll be good to keep an eye on things, and things will constantly be shifting in and out, which gives people more opportunities to confuse themselves rereading someone else's hand.

I've found that Flickerform is simply worth it on its own, protection for your commander when you're trying to one-shot somebody is pretty amazing. Vendilion Clique is a cool card and all but I think Flickerform would fill a better role in the deck.

My absolute favorite “combo” (it’s really just great synergy) is Vendilion Clique at end of turn, into a Tunnel Vision during my main phase. Works with Spin into Myth as well.

So the way I'd go with this is basically a standard Tron commander with a top-end to take advantage of your draws. Chasm Skulker , Consecrated Sphinx , Faerie Vandal , all the Swords (e.g. Sword of Fire and Ice ), Skeleton Key , Colossus Hammer , Fireshrieker , Eel Umbra , Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots , Shielding Plax , Grafted Exoskeleton , etc. Probably a few counterspells (e.g. Counterspell ), some control like Vendilion Clique , maybe a Thought Sponge . Your higher-end stuff can be Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Sheoldred, the Whispering One, Dragonlord Silumgar , Vilis, Broker of Blood . You want consistent life loss, so Pestilence and similar effects are solid.
