Weird deck inspired by a meme. dw I don't actually listen to suicide silence
SoSac and silence are a powerful combo that can be confusing to play around. Silence followed by Shard of Sacrifice can protect you from purify, SoPa, holy flash or sundial, significantly reducing the risk of playing SoSac. Silence can also be used just as the sacrifice is wearing off, to prevent the enemy from bursting damage.
Psions and Phase Recluses are mostly interchangeable depending on playstyle or predicted opponent.

This deck is weak to stalls, particularly firestall thanks to the sanctuaries and rain of fire, but jst about anything with good CC will cause issues for it.
It's a good deck to send if you think sosac will work well, but fear Pdials is too predictable.

Anti-air version:

This variant lets you bring out the full power of the spiders, bringing air creatures out of the sky to protect you from Sky Blitz and SoFre.
A couple of psions is still recommended, because wings is a possibility if the opponent is running air.

You need good timing judgement to play it effectively, and it still needs some tweaking.
If anyone has ideas to improve these I'm open to suggestions.

I see no PC or CC. Recluses' ability is also rendered useless as you do not have Wings and your opponent is unlikely to be using a Shard of Freedom...

The Shards of Sacrifice make this deck... usable at least, but it's pretty hard to get 4 of the same shard.

A Lobotomiser/Electrocutor might work better in place of the spiders, which could be swapped out for stronger hitters.

Thanks for the feedback, but I don't think you quite understand the purpose of this deck. Packing CC would be pointless because you can benefit from enemy creatures by playing SoSac, and packing PC would be impractical because there are no such cards within the elements used here.
The recluses only have fuel for their ability in the specific "anti-air" version, which should really only be used if you expect SoFre/sky blitz. After spark, which I neglected to include for its lack of hp, Recluse is Aether's best hitter in terms of damage/cost, so I'm not sure what you're suggesting I replace it with.
Also, most people have more than 4 shards, they're easy to get if you play arena.
