EsperControl4Life Thanks for the input! I had not thought about Lodestone Golem at all but it definitely fits the vibe of the deck! I will see if I can work it in. as for Wurmcoil Engine I personally won't include it in this version of the deck because I built it to be be an example of a good budget modern deck but if anyone wants to add it they can feel free. Personally on the high end of the curve I like Verdurous Gearhulk and it is more budget but easily removable. what was your deck based around? eldrazi? Thanks for the input!

First off Love the Deck I played a Heartless summoning deck in modern for about a year although it had a very different game plan and I like the style of yours more I think. With that being said have you looked into playing Lodestone Golem in the Sideboard or (if it's in the budget) Wurmcoil Engine ?

I would have been fine leaving Flusterstorm in Eternal. Modern doesn't need it. It's good in Legacy because there are counter wars and combo decks which play counterspells to protect their combo. In modern there aren't enough instants or sorceries for it to matter.

My problem is that the counterspells in modern all suck. Creatures define the format, so a counterspell needs to be able to counter creatures. And the 2 most playable counterspells, Mana Leak and Logic Knot , are way too fragile. Tron and Titan can easily pay for their costs. Wurmcoil Engine , Thragtusk , and Primeval Titan are the threats which midrange decks struggle the most to deal with. And, from a color balance perspective, these cards are supposed to be soft to countermagic. Greedy expensive bombs should be balanced by their vulnerability to tempo plays. Counterspell would fix that problem instantly. Heck, counterspell still gets blown out of the water by Aether Vial and Cavern of Souls . It wouldn't be broken. It'd help balance.

Counterspell sees play in legacy, but not much. I'd say they are pushing the uniqueness of legacy with Force of Negation way more than they would with Counterspell . Force of Will and Brainstorm are the flavor of legacy.

Can't counter creatures. I'm pretty annoyed by that. Please let me counter Primeval Titan and Wurmcoil Engine . With Flusterstorm and this, I'm losing hope on getting Counterspell , which is what modern actually needs.

Yooo so I'm loving this. Tibalt is my naughty husband you see, so I really enjoy seeing him used this way. Have you considered Wurmcoil Engine or maybe Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to help you get some extra value?

Hi Jayd0nlink thx for the suggestions. I think I am going to try to get lands under 1 dollar. I think I am going to add Seat of the Synod . Cascading Cataracts is a nice choice I am going to add. Since this deck is trying to get other peoples cards, I need the opponent to have cards I want. I want to take out Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , also Colossus of Akros . I know Blightsteel Colossus is an amazing add, but its not really a necessary card. Wurmcoil Engine is also usually a automatic add in most EDH decks but, ehhh, I think its going in my Daretti deck. Coastal Breach technically is not necessary. I would rather use target removal, or bounce.

Cards going in------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Unsummon - Alley Evasion - Into the Roil - Disperse - Dictate of Kruphix - Vision Skeins - Seer's Vision - Cascading Cataracts

Cards going out----------------------------------------------------------------------- - Blightsteel Colossus - Oloro, Ageless Ascetic - Colossus of Akros - Wurmcoil Engine - Coastal Breach - Inkwell Leviathan - Scoured Barrens - Persuasion

Maybe going in------------------------------------------------------------------------ - Unwinding Clock - Chromatic Lantern - Smothering Tithe - Helm of the Host

THX for all the suggestions. IF you could tell me how its looking, that would be great. Again, just in case, this deck utilizes other peoples cards, and hands,bouncing stuff they already casted. Letting them draw cards for our use. Helm of the Host can do wonky stuff with our commander, letting us control other peoples hands, more than one.

If you're going to run the locus lands you should play Vesuva , Thespian's Stage , and a spicy Dark Depths for that sweet sweet Stage Depths combo.

Also OG Ugin/Karn are definitely add-ins here, they are far more powerful than the newer ones.

Mox Opal , Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , and Rings of Brighthearth are all solid cards here for ramp but might not fit the budget.

If you keep your spells or CMC low to the ground you could do a colorless storm build using Aetherflux Reservoir .

Also I'm a huge fan of Chaos Wand + Engine + Rocks to cast all of everyone's stuff! (serves two purposes, fun and to get rid of those cards so they can't be used against you!).

Codex Shredder is great, it also has a one time recursion ability, unless you play Myr Retriever or Trading Post (strongly suggest the latter).

Not sure why Sculpting Steel isn't already here.

Spine of Ish Sah is great permanent removal that can be reused, with oh say a Trading Post or Ashnod's Altar . Speaking of Ashnod's + Nim Deathmantle + Battlesphere is fun, infinite dudes.

Staff of Domination is a little pricey but... definitely a utility here!

Wurmcoil Engine for SURE belongs in the deck.

Mind's Eye for sure belongs here for some draw power!

Lastly Voltaic Key combos with a lot of stuff in artifacts.

Also I'm much more inclined to encourage the artifact route with some Eldrazi titan's at the top end, than a weird mix like you have now. My artifact deck, Daretti, runs one Ulamog, Ceaseless Hunger as just a top end as it generates a lot of mana naturally... Also gotta love that two Scour From Existences for 4 mana less...

Thanks for the insight, I will definetely consider adding Flayer of the Hatebound . However, he is single card, and I fear that will not be consistent enough. Sac outlet-wise I have Viscera Seer , Grimgrin, Corpse-Born , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , God-Eternal Bontu , Phyrexian Tower and even Bolas's Citadel , I feel like that is plenty. Also, I dont want to make aristocrat-style deck, that is why I did not put Judith, the Scourge Diva and fling sac outlets.

Budget-wise, I find it acceptable to go up to $10 for single card upgrade, and from all cards in deck I miss only Wurmcoil Engine and Sneak Attack , which I plan to acquire in near future.

If you believe some cards do not belong, feel free to tell me.
