Baral, Chief of Compliance Discussion

Great deck hcp78! Although you are trying to keep it cheap, I recommend that you add at least 1 Baral, Chief of Compliance and The Locust God. The former helps make all your spells cheaper and the latter can generate a large supply of tokens if needed. However, these are expensive. Cryptic Serpent is a cheap, bulk card that can be low mana cost. Torrential Gearhulk is medium priced, but can generate tons of card value.

I like the inclusion of Saheeli Rai, seems really solid in this deck. I play a more controlling version of the deck. Would you mind explaining the inclusion of the Skyship Stalker? Seems totally random, and doesn't seem to synergize at all. I would switch it and one of the Baral, Chief of Compliance for another 2 Cryptic Serpents. Another question: without much burn, how do you deal with larger resolved creatures?

Here's my deck if you're interested: U/R Drake Control

If you liked the temur miracle grow deck, I have one in standard right now that is working really well. unfortunately if I type the link, it will send you to the wrong list so you can go to my page, click "all decks" and click the one called Its A Miracle! Now onto your deck. I would run a couple counter spells in the main and maybe 1-2 copies of Baral, Chief of Compliance. A los, I don't know about your meta but if the are any Approach decks then run 1 copy of Ipnu Rivulet in the main, and one in the side. Other than that, looks really good and may you have the best of luck with it!

If you want to get your mileage out of Jace's Erasure and Sphinx's Tutelage, I think these cards might go a ways and have good synergy with each other:

And lastly, this would require splashing in some black mana, but Zur the Enchanter can easily fetch your key enchantments

honestly I wouldnt bother with highland lake if you have your Spirebluff Canals, id cut them for two of each basicfor creatures I recommend Siren Stormtamer shes a cheap 1 drop that can double as protection, also I feel Bloodwater is a bit too slow for what you would want, I would replace it with Storm Fleet Sprinter, I also recommend Baral, Chief of Compliance yeah hes legendary but he makes most of your important stuff cheaper, for counterspells, I suggest Censor, Admiral's Order and optionally Negate for other bits of removal either Shock or Magma Sprayalso Pull from Tomorrow would also be pretty good draw power and to top it all off because you are already running some cards with a discard effects, you could probably make good use of Drake Haven to further fill your board

Hab vorhin mal das folgende Video hier mehr oder weniger durchgeschaut und mir da noch ein paar Inspirationen geholt:

Propaganda, Thought Vessel und Baral, Chief of Compliance habe ich auf deine Empfehlung mal dem Maindeck hinzugefgt, ebenso wie Stasis, Overburden und Kill Switch.

Commandeer vs. Aethersnatch: Ich mag die alternativen Kosten bei Commandeer, deshalb bleibt die Karte drin.

Power Sink und Countervailing Winds gefallen mir beide ganz gut. Dafr mssen dann am Ende zwei andere Counterspells rausfliegen - vielleicht Miscalculation? Sonst noch eine Idee?:)

Mit Spell Swindle knnte ich ja ganz gut die Manabase fixen. Wieder ein Counterspell mehr, der am Ende rausfliegen muss... Hmm...

Time Warp und Konsorten wren natrlich ultimativ auch echt gut in dem Deck, allerdings blhen die das Budget natrlich auch gleich ziemlich auf. Das ist dann aber auch gleichzeitig der einzige deiner Wackelkandidaten, der mir zusagt.

xyr0s That makes sense for the Hour of Devastation vs Anger of the Gods. Primal Amulet  Flip was better before some cuts. The 1 colorless decrease from instants and sorceries combined with Baral, Chief of Compliance can really make using the counters super cheap. I am iffy on them, however.
