If you want to reduce your costs even further, Jace's Sanctum is harder to remove. You might consider Reality Shift for exile effects. // It looks like you don't like lands that enter tapped, so Blighted Cataract or Arch of Orazca should replace Memorial to Genius . Spire Garden , Exotic Orchard and Kessig Wolf Run might be good here.

Since you have a Blighted Cataract , why not play that in the mainboard over a Wastes - The both add , but one has a relevant activated ability to boot.

99LandOTK Thanks for the suggestions! I had considered Sol Ring as it was on the list of EDH staples for ramp but I didn't think of checking for cheaper moderate/heavy play cards. I also didn't notice that Arcane Melee applied to other players. I put Blighted Cataract in just to be a more interesting land without actually looking at the mana cost, so I'll be sure to get rid of it. I might keep Stormtide Leviathan though, if anything else just play after a wipe (I'll look at adding cards that grant islandwalk).

You have a lot of really expensive stuff (mana wise), so be careful about aggro in your playgroup since it sadly seems you'd be blown clean out of the water. I'm not sure about what your budget is, but Sol Ring is always a nice addition to all EDH decks. Additionally, a basic Counterspell can be less than a dollar depending on the version, and is another blue staple.

I'm not too sure about Arcane Melee . It helps your opponents too, and you do not have that many instants and sorceries to benefit from it, especially since to cast it you would have most of the mana you'd need to cast the rest.

As for creatures, they're just really expensive to cast. Quicksilver Amulet can help with that, but isn't really budget. Maybe a used copy? Light to moderate play cards are typically fine (by my standards) especially on a budget. Belbe's Portal naming whatever you have the most of in your hand could also be good, kinda-budget with a used copy, though it is an older card as well. Hmm.. Clone is also a versatile card to help with CMC issues.

Overall, your deck seems good but slow. Which was your intention, but just be wary of aggro.

Cards to cut (suggestions): Blighted Cataract - really expensive draw, colorless not too useful

Stormtide Leviathan - most of your stuff would no longer be able to attack

Good Luck and take my advice with a grain of salt, I really enjoy combo decks and my playstyle is based on this.

Sky Diamond instead of Arcane Melee? Arcane Melee mostly plays against you, since your opponents can Wrath of God, Damnation or Toxic Deluge your drakes for , and respectively. I also have a copy of Arcane Melee, but it never worked on my favor. // You may also consider Blighted Cataract or Lonely Sandbar or Reliquary Tower instead of Mikokoro, Center of the Sea (that is card disadvantage for you, since you draw 1 card and your opponents draw 3, one for each).

I'm with Catbeard, the land count seems pretty low. Maybe run some utility lands to offset the number of rocks, so even if you're flooding you don't necessarily hate drawing them, examples: Academy Ruins, Arch of Orazca, Arcane Lighthouse,Blighted Cataract, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls if you already own one, those are pricey, Command Beacon, Desolate Lighthouse, you get the idea. If I were you I'd take out Flusterstorm and maybe Spell Swindle for more versatile and easier to cast counterspell package like Arcane Denial and maybe Negate. It allows you to use your turn better without needing to hold up 5 mana, and also lets you counter more things than Flusterstorm. And stuff like Search for azcanta seems good, scrying in general. And if you're looking to do lots of cantripping with cheap artifacts, Mind's Desire, or Haze of Rage might be pretty sweet payoffs. and if you fill up your hand, maybe Stormbreath Dragon?
