Conversion , Volcanic Eruption , and Glaciers to mess with his mountains.

Flash Flood and Flashfreeze for red removal.

Surge of Righteousness to get rid of red creatures.

Chill to tax red cards.

Baleful Stare to draw a lot of cards.

Teferi's Moat name red for ultimate protection. Harsh Judgment for more red protection.

don't forgot some neutral cards like Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , and Grasp of Fate just in case you aren't playing against red guys. If you want to keep the theme of color hose, Mana Maze and Drought are fun.

Finally, if you want to drop 400 dollars against your friend. Invoke Prejudice .

I hope that helps.

hello there!

you've done a great job assembling a budget prison deck! IMO you could cut guardian of tazeem for Icefall Regent, as tapping a creature every turn is great, but you only have 6 islands to make use of doesn't untap on their next untap step . icefall regent also has its own protection, which I believe stacks with all the other additional cost effects.

Cutting an alhammaret might work out better, because it's 7 mana and can get stuck in your hand easily. You could add Nevermore, or Render Silent, however they are both 3 mana and don't help with fixing your curve.

The best way to fix your curve is to add Runed Halo, but adding a playset will increase your deck price. Also adding Meddling Mage may work out well. Venarian Glimmer can cut cards from your opponent's hand, as well as letting you see what they have.

for a potential budget sideboard, Withering Gaze and Baleful Stare benefit you for your opponent's colors.

I have a few friends that play cedh and I wanted to know how I could turn my Isperia deck into comp, but they shot me down on how Isperia isn't a reliable tutor or she is too slow or there are many better Azorius commanders. Cards like these have really helped and I have beaten their $3000 decks with my $100 pile of Isperia fun stuff. Like I chose to go Angels semi-tribal, but I have a lot of angel cards I won't throw in for value reasons. Stuff like Serra Avenger and Serra Angel seem to have no place, but tutoring for them and/or playing them helps me by giving me blockers and more options and time to think.

Also, consider Prahv, Spires of Order instead of Azorius Guildgate, which wastes a turn doing nothing while this can give you a colorless since you already have a ton of U/W giving lands and artifacts.

Archon of Redemption is really good and i hope that you try to find space for it. Insane life gain here.


Wandering Eye-you have to reveal what you tutor anyway.
