Riding the Wave

While devotion is primarily a Standard mechanic, the vast card pool of Modern has many more cards that would enable devotion cards.

If you wanted to build a Master of Waves deck for Modern, naturally you would look for cards that have mostly blue mana symbols in their cost. Looking through the Modern card pool shows a theme—Merfolk! Lord of Atlantis and Master of the Pearl Trident are both efficient "lords" that boost all other Merfolk. Master of Waves is even a Merfolk!

Once you have this core, you want to fill your deck with the right balance of additional Merfolk and efficient interaction. Dismember, Relic of Progenitus, and Spreading Seas are capable of keeping an opponent off balance enough for your Merfolk to swim through the red zone. Spreading Seas serves double duty, disabling opposing mana bases and providing an Island to make your Islandwalking Merfolk unblockable.

You have many options to build a Merfolk deck, even in Mono-Blue.
