The evolution of prowess in modern

Let us take a trip back to standard from a couple years ago. I had built a prowess deck around a few cards

I loved how that deck was like a mix of aggro and tempo. I was sad when they were going to rotate out of standard, so I did the only natural thing I could think of; upgrade it to a modern deck.

I really enjoyed this deck for a time but it seemed to be really hit or miss at times and anybody that knows me can tell you I’m a brewer. So I moved on and the deck kind of fell to the side for a time, a long time. Enter Dominaria, I was scrolling through YouTube one day and I saw a video from MTG Goldfish called Thunderous Wizards in Modern and I was intrigued. He still had a lot of what I had in my deck but he included

It looked like a blast to play and he got to have his fun with the thunderous wrath.

I enjoyed watching him play the deck but I wanted to keep my deck Jeskai. I feel that keeping white in the deck helps with the versatility, especially in the sideboard. I feel these cards have a lot to offer
