Forbidden Alchemy seems suboptimal in Modern. Maybe Thirst for Knowledge would be better? Probably with the explosives and maybe a shackles or two maindeck, and definitely an Academy Ruins main with possibly a second in the board. Trinket Mage too if there are relevant targets other than Explosives... does this deck need <BANNED> for speed?

And yeah, I'm with Xheng: A pair of <BANNED> seems like they wouldn't be amiss. I guess the question is whether it's better than Cryptic.

@Fuzzy: In Modern, Midnight Haunting is black and called <BANNED>.

spell pierce 3x in main: not familiar with current environs. is combo that big of a deal?

fuzzy is right about the hawks btw. perhaps -spellstutter, + hawk, since the fairy is suboptimal a lot of the time but that fucking hawk is never dead.

also considering trinket mage with thirst, but not having chrome mox or seat of synod really hurts that plan. little jace is def next on the list.

spell pierce is nuts when your plan is hit them with sword.

I'd really like for you to try it. I wanted to play a couple in merfolk...seems like it takes a large number of games to properly test.
