Afflicti on Miller's Brew

ok.... So I took kinda different approach to bruvac deck. You can definitely check my deck Error 404 Library not found :)

Its funny that you struggle with draw in mono blue. You should definitely include some cheap draw/scry effects. Ponder, Brainstorm, Opt etc... There is a lot of them , just choose which one you like most :) Then... PLANESWALKERS Almost every Jace got draw ability. My personal favourite is Jace, Wielder of Mysteries :)

Protecting your creatures is little bit more tricky and it definitely depends on meta in your playgroup. Protecting Bruvac is crucial and Lightning Greaves works fine.

Peoni on So I die to crab commander damage?

Yes, you die to crab commander damage. :(

You might enjoy more evasion like Aqueous Form, Distortion Strike, or Slip Through Space. Also maybe some cantrips like Brainstorm and Ponder.

Like the crab, and the deck. :^)

Peoni on Dalakos War of Machines

I'd recommend swapping out Chromatic Lantern, Prophetic Prism, and Worn Powerstone for different rocks. Lantern I don't feel is super necessary in a 2 color deck and I'd even be reluctant to run it in a 3 color deck. Usually it's run to make up for a weak land base or to help super color intensive decks, but your land base is really nice and your deck is a 2 color deck with a colorless focus. The draw from Prophetic Prism is probably going to benefit you less than ramp you'd get from another rock. Finally Powerstone comes in tapped and it's 3 cmc so it's much slower than what we'd probably like our ramp to be.

For Lantern I'd recommend Arcane Signet take its place, for Prophetic perhaps one like Prismatic Lens so you get to keep your mana fixing ability or Mind Stone so you retain the draw. Finally Powerstone could be swapped out for a Talisman of Curiosity. I personally would also swap out Commander's Sphere for an Izzet Signet but I know a lot of people like that you can tap it and then draw off of it so that's up to you.

You might also want some more card draw in this deck, maybe through cantrips like Brainstorm, Gitaxian Probe, and Ponder. There's also Skullclamp since you're running a few 1/1 token producers, and enchantments like Reconnaissance Mission and Coastal Piracy to synergize with your Thopter Spy Network.

I like this deck a lot. Hope this helps! :^)

Things like Fellwar Stone, Sol Ring, Prismatic Lens, Fractured Powerstone, Worn Powerstone, Wayfarer's Bauble, Talisman of Dominance, Dimir Signet, Arcane Signet, Thought Vessel, and Mind Stone would make a great ramp package here. I know you already have some here but I would take out Mirrorpool, Ravenous Chupacabra, Rise of the Dark Realms, Thassa's Oracle (if you dont have a way to instantly mill yourself), Conjurer's Closet, Sire of Stagnation and Crush of Tentacles. These are your lower impact higher cmc cards, and this will lower your average cmc so your deck will run smoother.

Additionally, I feel like there are some draw staples that are missing, such as Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, Visions of Beyond (if you lean into the mill strat), Sign in Blood/Night's Whisper, and things like Brainstorm, Preordain, Ponder, and Read the Bones. Think about the higher cmc in your advantage section to replace for a few of these, I usually shoot for 10. hope this helps!

Trust me it'll work better, the less mana that comes in the better. Also consider cards like Brainstorm and Ponder and even Dream Cache that will help you manipulate the top of your library and give you draw as well.

I suggest Cavalier of Gales as a legal Brainstorm to get your combo in place. Love the idea, sad it'll rotate very very soon

StopShot on Elsha's Infinite Voltron

Cards I’d cut:

Basilisk Collar - You don’t need deathtouch and your other lifelink equipment are more desirable.

Helm of the Host - Creating extra 3/3 prowess creatures isn’t worth it.

Sigiled Sword of Valeron, Sword of Body and Mind - the slight power boost and token production aren’t worth it.

Sword of Sinew and Steel, Sword of War and Peace - not enough payoff to justify these. Light and Shadow is a bit weak because you don’t have much creatures to reanimate, but the pro-white/pro-black is good at stopping removal and evading blockers. Truth and Justice feels also weak, but you’re getting a bigger beater every turn which is improving your damage output. Fire and Ice and Feast and Famine are the best swords to keep and not cut.

Sword of Vengeance - First Strike won’t matter when you get enough equipment and 3 to equip is a lot when you want haste. Run Haunted Cloak instead.

Armory Automaton - Cute but doesn’t contribute anything to you smacking your opponent with your commander.

Godo, Bandit Warlord - Clunky. I know he can be used as part of an infinite combo, but infinite combos should be added in when you have your 100 cards set aside and can start replacing them.

Leonin Shikari - It can make a bunch of cute interactions, but I think you can go without it. Run Sram, Senior Edificer instead.

Brainstorm - it might be good for removing lands but you should run Druidic Satchel over it as its a repeatable Rampant Growth in this deck, though since you’re trying to cut cards I think you can go without either.

Remember the Fallen, Serum Visions, Sevinne's Reclamation - Remove these as you can go without them. If you’re worried about losing your stuff you should run Academy Ruins as it only takes up a land slot.

Mystic Forge - Your commander is already doing its job for you.

Masterwork of Ingenuity, Mirrormade - These are situational cards that vary on what you have out. They also provide amazing incentives for your opponents to destroy the original equipment effectively 2-for-1’ing you.
