I agree that Insidious Will is expensive. Aetherflux Reservoir is a worthy include in a deck such as your thougt i'm not sure there is enough instant mana in izzet color to make it a cEDH tactic. Arcane Lighthouse , love the card but I'd prefer a colored land for consistency. I've looked at your list and you should definitely include Flusterstorm if you have it.

Still working on streamlining my own, but here's my list Maybe not cEDH but it is pretty consistent so far.

You really want to keep that cmc low, so cards like Insidious Will are a bit costly for what they do.

Personally I'm not a fan of cards like Pongify , but I know they definitely have their place.

Aetherflux Reservoir is a solid include, especially if you start storming off.

Be sure to include enough cheap mana rock options for that Dramatic Scepter combo, since you want to make it worth your resources. Also consider some utility lands like Arcane Lighthouse to remove enemy hexproof etc.

TheSlowestBro Thanks a lot for the tips! I've just checked out your Breya deck and I really like it!

I wish I could put more artefacts but I have to go really heavy on instants since my meta is really full of removal so I need to always have a counterspell ready (to counter that Merciless Eviction ). I also need some permanent removal for the friends that like to use superfriends + Doubling Season and infect, otherwise it's game-over really fast haha

I will definitely consider Arcum Dagsson , I will try to see where I can make space for him. I will also keep an eye on Arcane Lighthouse should my friends start to play more hex proof stuff.

You're definitely right, Goblin Engineer is just sweet! Crazy good if paired with Daretti, Scrap Savant -2 to tutor and cheat out your best artifact, but he still has exceptional value when paired with Ichor Wellspring . He basically becomes a {R}{T}: Draw two cards ;)

What do you think of the new Mirrodin Besieged enchantment?

I have a Breya deck with a very similar philosophy as yours around the same budget. Although I've gone a more artifact-heavy version. Perhaps you might find some cards you like there: Battle Angel Breya.

Off the top of my head I would definitely suggest Arcum Dagsson which is awesome to cast the turn before Breya, I see you are running the Darksteel Forge so thats a pretty crazy combo right there. Another really nice card here is Expedition Map , good mana fixer and in my deck I often use it to fetch Arcane Lighthouse to counter hexproof/shroud as I rely pretty heavily on Breya for creature removal. My deck runs a Salvaging Station enginge so it's extra good there, but it's also a nice card on it's own.

I see you've included the new Goblin Engineer , man what a sweet card for the deck right, I definitely have to find some space for it!

Nice deck overall though! I like it's feel. +1

SideBae on Azami's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Right off the bat, I think you should run Preordain . The card is very powerful, and I see it in your 'Maybeboard.' Second, I saw you replaced Anticipate with Sensei's Divining Top . This is a good idea, but if you're looking for more cantrip effects, Impulse is a strictly better Anticipate . Furthermore, looking at your deck's curve, you might want to consider running Counterbalance in conjunction with top -- I have had good results with that combo, particularly if running Zendikar and Onslaught fetches to clear the top. Azami's draw ability would do just as well though.

I don't think Halimar Depths is a very good card. Sage of Epityr is a one-drop wizard who does the same thing (slightly better, actually) and doubles as card-advantage later in the game. Siren Stormtamer is another good utility one-drop wizard, as is Sidisi's Faithful . (Note that Sidisi's Faithful can be tapped to draw a card while the exploit trigger is on the stack, and you can still have it exploit itself.) Generally any low-cost wizard that has a relevant ability is a good idea. Furthermore, cards like Intruder Alarm and Paradox Engine are your friend, as they make spells into spells plus draw 4 or 5.

Pairing Azami with Mind Over Matter then becomes an auto-win in conjunction with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries . For the record, Laboratory Maniac is a wizard, but I like your choice of Jace better. I think the Lab Man/Jace combos are likely a better way to win than wizard aggro.

Riptide Laboratory is a good way to protect your general.

Sapphire Medallion , which I see is also in the 'Maybeboard,' is also a good card. Mono-blue has little ramp, so any two-drop ramp is good. Same goes for Sky Diamond , Baral, Chief of Compliance and Coldsteel Heart . With more rocks, things like Aphetto Alchemist also get better (I strongly recommend playing him).

I do not recommend Portent . Half the time I use cantrips, I am using them to find a land or some other card I want to use immediately. The Ice Age slowtrips just don't fulfill that need.

Finally, I am not sure I think Arcane Lighthouse or Detection Tower are very good. It may be a meta-call, but I feel that Azami costing triple-blue means you want to run as few colorless lands as possible.

All the best and good luck! Azami was one of my pet decks when I used to play her.

I built an entire deck around stealing stuff with Merieke Ri Berit as the commander. It did draw a lot of attention, and I have kinda retired it. Because she is white, that isn't an option to offer, but there are a few cards in there that were my favorites.

Beguiler of Wills - lets you flat out take stuff, if you can get an untap ability, like Magewright's Stone or Pemmin's Aura you can pretty much take every creature in one fell swoop.

Detection Tower - not as good as Arcane Lighthouse but its good to have 2 options in a 100 card deck.

Treachery - definitely on the more expensive side, but is an option.

If you are going to lean into the stealing, I would recommend a couple lands with Strip Mine effects, or Ghost Quarter .. because a Homeward Path can really mess up those plans.

Crib Swap was a consideration of mine, and if I were to put in 1 kill spell, that would be it. I need colors, so Arcane Lighthouse is a no-go. Unmake is a little color restrictive as well, but still good. I may run it but again, Crib Swap is on a whole new level.

Then may I suggest Crib Swap over Go for the Throat ? Also, I run Arcane Lighthouse in a few of my decks and it tends to just completely wreck some decks.
