Love this deck, it's a very unique way of winning. I'm gonna suggest a 1 of Westvale Abbey  Flip I feel like you can use it as an alternate wincon for your deck if you can't get the meld out. You can also search for it with crop rotation.

Some cool lands to maybe think about for future upgrades:

Malakir Rebirth  Flip, Agadeem's Awakening  Flip, Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, Shatterskull Smashing  Flip, Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, Valakut Awakening  Flip, Castle Locthwain, Castle Embereth

Cragcrown Pathway  Flip, Blightstep Pathway  Flip, Auntie's Hovel

I think your Reliquary Tower might be a bit ambitious; maybe replace it with Goblin Burrows or Den of the Bugbear for flavor? or Westvale Abbey  Flip!! No shortage of tokens to sacrifice!

I return with a few more card recommendations!


Westvale Abbey  Flip

It's ridiculously easy to sacrifice 5 creatures, temporarily of course, to turn the land into Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip, who is VERY good at letting you go Unga Bunga for a few turns before your opponents manage to deal with it.

Plaza of Heroes

It's functionally a Command Tower, but you want it for the emergency Shirei protection.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Absurdly good in literally any monocolor deck.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Makes sure you always have all the black mana you'll ever need, regardless of the number of utility lands you have. Gets more valuable the more utility lands you shove in, of course. Combos VERY nicely with Cabal Stronghold

Cabal Stronghold

I see it's in your maybeboard. 110% worth swapping out a basic swamp for this. The mana it can dish out for you on its own is nuts.

Last thing, I'd take out Midnight Assassin.

It's an alright blocker, but I think the slot could be used by something more synergistic. Cuz as that card stands, you spend mana to play it, and it doesn't do anything.

I always gravitate towards aristocrats when discussing token strategies in competitive magic. You already have Westvale Abbey  Flip which is one of my favorite wincons and lends itself towards an aristocrat-style gameplan. Falkenrath Aristocrat / Butcher of the Horde are great token payoffs, however the format might be just too fast for them at the moment.

But some advice I would say for your current decklist is that it's just too slow. The Modern format is very fast and most decks snowball too much for you to be playing cards like Battle Screech and Lingering Souls. I do like the Ephemeriate + Solitude + Season Pyromancer package. However your other creatures aren't too relevant for what you're trying to accomplish. I would rather see a couple Intangible Virtue instead of the Serra's (which, by the way, you really shouldn't play all 4 copies of that card. It can make your draws awkward and isn't so detrimental to your deck working that it makes up for the drawback). I love the idea though. Honestly, I think the Ephemorate package I was talking about before could be your linchpin for the deck. Maybe find some other strong ETB effects that revolve around tokens ( Weaponcraft Enthusiast )? Or maybe a Plaguecrafter effect? Those might be too cute, but it's something to consider. Either way, good luck with your Deck it looks fun!

1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would be a fantastic addition to this. Turns Westvale Abbey  Flip and Witch's Cottage into Swamps. Mutavault would also be very good in this deck, probably 2x is fine.

With your mana curve being so low, 38 lands seems like WAAAAYYYYY too much. I think you can get away with 33. Killing Wave is really good for suicide/aristocrats lists. Serra Ascendant could be really strong. It would also be good to consider removal, since you have some of the best colors for it:


Anguished Unmaking

Damn (just noticed you had it but still good to note it should stay)

Winds of Abandon

Damnation (might as well run board wipes)

Vanishing Verse


Fateful Absence

Generous Gift

Westvale Abbey  Flip is another good sac outlet, maybe consider some more token generators like the various X token spells like Secure the Wastes and the like to help give more fodder for the large sac outs.
