    not really card draw, but some Thrill of possibility can help throw away excess manadorks and utopia sprawls.

    Garruk, Primal Hunter can also be used instead of Wildspeaker. Primal Hunter gives card draw to let you keep going strong mid-late game.

    the forum activity itself is down, since some active members migrated into mtg nexus forums.

    As for your list I like the mainboard trinispheres. My list has one in the main too. Slows down Burn and other aggressive decks by a lot.

    Also I suggest upping Pillage to 4 and reduce one molten rain. The chance to destroy an artifact is much more important than 2 damage.

    the W heavy list looks interesting.

    I also intend to test a tiny splash of blue for master of etherium and 2 copies of The Antiquities War, as the top of the curve. Feels like it could do some damage.

    For a bit of redundancey, Triskelion also works with Heliod combo. Although the cmc 6 of triskelion might be a little too much.

    I'm glad to have sold my opal set in 2017. Well, the guy who bought them had a full three years to enjoy his investment. Assuming he did not sell them at some point after he bought them from me.

    On another thing. What surprised me the most was Veil of Summer was not banned at all.

    After so many years... Opal has finally kicked the bucket in modern. Artifact decks will be a little bit weaker now.

    With Oko being banned in Standard. I wonder how long it would take before he becomes banned here in modern?

    T3feri is the planeswalker I dislike the most. Biased opinion because I play an esper deck with plenty of instants. Well, but still think there are not enough reasons to ban him. Rather I would wish that WoTC print more broad answers like for example Murderous Rider and Hero's Downfall which would kill a creature or a walker.

    Not safe to invest on Oko at the moment due to the threat of a ban.
    But for people who already have Oko,, well, they could try. He's a rather strong planeswalker.

    to the op

    nice deck with plenty of synergy. I like the use of many split cards.

    really can't say much about the lands. We don't have decent fetch lands in this format.

    ok, I see the purpose of those enablers in your deck.

    there's no basic build in ninjas and each list can fight differently. Mine is UB, and relies more on discard + some other things. All my counterspells are in the sideboard, brought in when facing a combo deck like scapeshift. The single moonblade shinobi was there because I originally planned to use 4 fallen shinobi, but chose to use only three.. so the last empty slot went to moonblade.

    heavy aggro (humans, goblins, elves) that was the problem of my list during our playtests. I ordered some sideboard cards from scg to remedy that. Smile

    Hi, if I cast the "granted" part of Fae of wishes. Would I take 2 damage if the opponent has an eidolon of the great revel in play?

    interesting synergy between faerie impostor and ornithopters.
    Not including the impostors, I see 16 enablers in your list. Is the deck working fine with that?

    My own list only has 10 enablers, and might cut them down to 8 when the cards I've ordered from SCG arrive.
    Drawing an enabler mid-late game sort of feels underwhelming in pressure situations.

    Long time no post here. Smile

    Had some exciting practice matches today.

    Learned some things.

    1. Faerie Seer is best enabler. Scry helped so much when i was under pressure from aggro.

    2. Ghost quarter almost lost me a game. Had 5 mana, but only one black, so can't ninjutsu a Fallen Shinobi and cast a typhoid rats on the same turn. One Ghost quarter shall be replaced with a swamp.

    3. Moonblade Shinobi surprisingly performed well. Creating blockers and dealing 6 damage to one of my opponents before being killed by removal. I only have one in the main, but will up her to two now.

    4. We definitely need a wipe against aggro decks. I'm adding one damnation and one languish to the sideboard.

    5. It's because my sideboard is obsolete, still had 5 grave hate for Hogaak. So aggro decks were so hard. :p

    6. Goblin Piledriver is a problem, there's one game I lost solely because of that card. Good thing there are not many pro blue creatures in modern.

    7. Fallen Shinobi is dope whenever he connects. I won a game simply because he connected twice - with the help of removal clearing the way.

    8. Smoke Shroud proved itself very useful. Helps giving evasion to ninjas already on the field, as well as extra toughness making some ninjas bolt proof and tarfire proof.
