Azorius Signet Discussion

crewchief88 Alela wants the Hall of Heliod's Generosity in there. not in Elsha. Alela is the artifact/enchantment chick in esper. So she really could use it more than Elsha can. I play tested your deck 6 times to turn 7 and only 1 time was i able to go off and win before then. That was turn 4 on a really good hand.
I would do some testing and working with the deck a little more, tweaking and ironing out the issues that you may have. (I noticed a HUGE problem with mana. You arent running signets, or all the talismans, so your fixing isnt there. That may be why you have some problems in the deck)
After further evaluation Library of Leng should not be in this deck. It's a cute card that does nothing for you right away in game. And discard decks are only if you are going against decks like Nath or Nekusar. (My baby Nath sadly can't keep up to my Elsha list.)
I think you rely too much on the effects of wheeling your way to a victory when you need to be letting Elsha do all the work man. She's a house. Throw in Rogue's Passage to sneak a few beats in there. Swiftfoot Boots is another card that she should be running to protect her. You don't want to give your opponents any opportunities to kill your commander when you are tapped out. Elsha, much like other storm decks, relies on the commander. For example: If Kess was not in play, the Grixis Kess Storm deck wouldn't function 100% of the time. I've done some testing on that.
Jeleva is the only one that wants to not be on the field 99% of the time unless shes attacking. Yidris storm REQUIRES Yidris to be on the field 100% of the time to win the game. Elsha is the same way. We need to be able to protect her at all costs.
Also, while I'm on the topic. SAY NO TO CODEX SHREDDER. It HAS TO GO. Its a cute card that if you want to win, you play around what people tutor. You know what they are tutoring well ahead of time so you can stop them with what counter magic you have.
You also don't care if they use Tabernacle because you only use 1 creature. Everythign else does value on ETB.

Hey, nice start and budget version of Alela.
Bident of Thassa is a very good budget card with lots of flying tokens. Bident with attacking Faeries can get you far ahead in a game with card draw and gives you resiliency to come back from board wipes. Diabolic Tutor is a budget tutor that can tutor for Bident. Oona's Blackguard is a two drop Faerie who has a good combat damage ability since there's many other Rogue Faeries in your deck. Rootborn Defenses protects all your creatures from a board wipe that destroys and you get free Faerie token.
For voltron Cranial Plating is a reason to go more artifacts than enchantments with Alela. Plating can be a busted card for voltron because you can keep equipping it to your Faeries. Seat of the Synod, Vault of Whispers and Darksteel Citadel are budget artifact lands that count for Plating. Two drop mana rocks are good with Alela such as Orzhov Signet, Azorius Signet, Dimir Signet, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, etc. Two drop mana rocks help to cast Alela turn three and the faster you can get Alela onto the battlefield the better your Faerie army will be. Paradoxical Outcome and Rebuild are budget mass bounce effects for artifacts and Outcome includes enchantments as well as draws you a card for each permanent you bounce. Bounce artifacts and cast them again to create more tokens.
Good luck with your deck.

Main thing I'm seeing is your ramp needs some TLC. As the previous poster stated... avoid mana rocks that cost + but only add 1 mana and drop Gilded Lotus. Lotus Petal, Azorius Signet, Boros Signet, Izzet Signet, Pentad Prism, Talisman of Conviction, Coalition Relic, Basalt Monolith, and Worn Powerstone are all better options. Also consider Generator Servant and Crystal Vein.
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not budget friendly as a whole but still plenty of budget options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

The main thing you'll want to do if you decide to increase this decks competitiveness is increase the amount of ramp you have by a LOT. A turn 3-4 Narset should be the goal.
Don't go with the Thran Dynamo/Gilded Lotus you have in your maybeboard though... stick to ramp that costs or less ( is ok if it adds more than 1 mana). Lotus Petal , Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Creativity , Boros Signet , Azorius Signet , Izzet Signet , Fellwar Stone , Pentad Prism , Coalition Relic , Basalt Monolith , and Worn Powerstone are all great mana rocks here that won't break the bank. Crystal Vein and Generator Servant are excellent here also.
Smoke is really good in Narset, especially with your Superfriends subtheme.
Aqueous Form allows you to Scry before Narset's trigger so you can dig 5 cards deep while making her unblockable.
Long-Term Plans is an excellent budget tutor here to set up a Narset attack.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's dedicated extra turns/combats and is very optimized. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

It seems there are many cards in here that just don't do much, as well as there being naught in terms of basic essentials for a commander deck.
As for creatures:
Dewdrop Spy , Dream Thief , Faerie Duelist , Faerie Seer , Final-Sting Faerie , Hypnotic Sprite , Latchkey Faerie , Nightshade Schemers , Pestermite , Shinechaser , Surveilling Sprite , Thornwind Faeries , Wasp Lancer , and Wizened Snitches . None of these seem to stand out. They have lacking effects that don't bolster power level, but rather drag it down. Cards in other supertypes seem to fall under the same category.
Faerie Tauntings , Stolen by the Fae , Dimir Locket , Violet Pall and Dimir Locket all seem incongruous and lacking. Brainstorm is best when shuffling effects can launder away cards if need be. This deck has only two tutors. Stolen by the Fae is restrictive and minute in impact, as well as a sorcery. Violet Pall seems far too expensive for what it does.
For what I believe should be added, card draw, ramp, and threats.
Windreader Sphinx , Coastal Piracy , and Bident of Thassa are able to draw a considerable amount over the course of a match. Phyrexian Arena , Underworld Connections , and Consecrated Sphinx oft daggle me through the game rather easily.
Good fortune to you, my liege. May all lout in your wake.
