I get that auras sound like a good idea, but they let a removal spell trade 2 cards for 1, which cripples midrange potential. You can do a great deal to overcome this- protection spells, combo tools and other methods of bypassing that weakness, but you need to plan and play around it.

Boggles uses hexproof, and it works by making it uninteractive. If you want a similar list to be viable with heroic, it needs to be heavy on interaction, with any enchantments resisting removal, because people are already used to fighting through boggles despite all their removal being blank.

If you're looking at making a semi-competitive heroic deck, I'd look at cards like Banishing Knack, Apostle's Blessing, Cerulean Wisps, Artful Dodge, Dive Down. I'd also look at adding a top end to the deck-Dismiss into Dream's cmc is far too high, and Cowardice doesn't play nice with heroic, but something to make all those targeted spells more efective as a disruption package would work wonders.

The only major card that has been printed since I last looked at it that might make it viable is Shapers' Sanctuary for a G/W or G/U/W list, as refilling your hand when you get 2-for 1'd seems ok, and the enchantment type can be relevant. Being in Rancor colours is nice too.

Best of luck, and I hope you come up with a list that works well.

Cerulean Wisps? It cantrips, and it can power out a little bigger spell. Refocus doesn't seem as good- its a poor Manamorphose at best. Ornamental Courage might work as bolt protection. Second Wind is interesting in that it can power out quite a large spell the turn after its played, but it isn't a 'go infinte' option. Thassa's Ire is interesting in that it isn't an aura, but the mana requirement makes it hard to work with. I've never made Thousand-Year Elixir work.

How about stuff like Zada, Hedron Grinder, Mirrorwing Dragon, and Precursor Golem alongside things like Cerulean Wisps and Expedite? Archaeomancer + Twinflame are also a nice synergy with your general :O

MagicMarc no problem! Yeah, I honestly didn't realize that Manamorphose was that much money. I think Crimson Wisps and to a lesser extent Cerulean Wisps might be some better budget friendly options that would be quite good in the deck. Also I think a couple copies of Apostle's Blessing at least deserves some consideration as a good protection spell.

If you need draw, Cerulean Wisps is very efficient. You may also which to invest in Morphing. Exiling Morphed cards returns permanents flipped and untapped. Also triggers ETB effects. Very easy amass mana with an exiled Drowner of Hope. Or counter spells by turning an Essence Flux into an ETB Counterspell. This also works with Cackling Counterpart. The cloning of counter creatures happens before the original is hit with the removal spell. Fun.

Since Naban, Dean of Iteration is illegal, Kaho is definitely top pick for my own deck ideas. I only have store bought EDH decks so far.

Cerulean Wisps is great for turning your mana into cards 1 for 1 as Elite Arcanist or Kaho, Minamo Historian.

Quicken will let you play at the end of opponent's turn.

Back from the Brink will give creatures Flashback. Pretty useful for EDH I think.

Torrential Gearhulk will Flashback any instant. If you equip a low mana exile bounce card you can Flashback your graveyard instants as if they were in your hand. Double up on counterspells. Any creatures that return spells on ETB to hand also become very potent. Imagine tapping Elite Arcanist for 1 colourless each turn and getting back an instant or sorcery due to Archaeomancer. Crazy.

Quicksilver Amulet for gives creatures Flash. Saves on counterspells.

Fold into AEther if given to your commander will let you cast 1 mana spells just to counter. This will let you drop a creature down instantly as if they had Flash for 5 mana. If you can get Elite Arcanist to equip one then you can Flash creatures in regularly.

Other ETB creatures to take advantage of exile bounce triggers. Turns creatures into a reuseable spellbook.

Loreshadow on Can Elite Arcanist cast copy ...

So then I should use 'cost 1 less' outside factors? How does that affect the 1 mana spells? Can I play them for free?

Would an Elite Arcanist aided by Jace's Sanctum be able to spend 0 colourless to cast Cerulean Wisps, creating an infinite draw generator? Or is there a minimum cost?
