Hey zapyourtumor, thanks for your suggestions! Village Rites could be a very good addition, I don't know how I didn't think about it. I'm going to test it to see if I can manage to get enough creatures to sacrifice on the board (probably yes), putting it in Opt's place. I know Mythos of Nethroi is meant for BGW decks but I liked the fact that it could easily get to cost only , but, as said in the description, I'm thinking about using something else which also targets planeswalkers, probably one of what you listed above, even if that cost could be a little bit heavy. As for Chart a Course I don't really think I need any discard (I would only need it if I draw Archfiend's Vessel), definitely won't if I add Village Rites. Thanks again!

Have you considered Village Rites to sacrifice Stitcher's Supplier? You can also do it in response to an exile removal spell on one of your creatures, to reanimate later.

Mythos of Nethroi is trash here, its basically just Murder. There are a bunch of better options in pioneer like Fatal Push, Heartless Act, Hero's Downfall, Cast Down, etc. Maybe even Murderous Cut since you're loading up the graveyard so much.

For more discard outlets, maybe Chart a Course?

Since the deck is aggro-tempo, I think you can probably drop the Cryptic Commands, as they are too slow and worse than Remand here. I assume you're using Unsummon instead of Vapor Snag because you can bounce your own creatures?

I think you could fit in a singleton of Spell Snare in there, just because it's really satisfying when it works. Also, have you tried testing with 4x Aether Vial? Maybe 1x Faerie Conclave? Other potential faeries are Sower of Temptation, Faerie Impostor, Glen Elendra Archmage (a bit slow but a singleton can do some work). Maybe Chart a Course for more draw or Favorable Winds to pump your creatures. Just throwing out ideas. Looks good! Although Vendilion Clique is dope im serious

It's also able to do a variety of tricks, first off in a Baral, Chief of Compliance deck it a 1 blue Chart a Course that bounces a spell or resets storm/replicate/on-cast triggers, and it triggers things like Lullmage Mentor while losing 0 cards in hand.

Dredge4life on Cheapskate Talrand (Competitive, Budget $75)

If the plan is to Polymorph, I would cut the Deadeye/Drake package, and just run Oracle/Leveler. I think the better plan is to always know that Talrand is lethal if Mass Polymorph resolves. Other than that, I would probably try and lower the curve a little. Cut some of the more expensive countermagic and run things like Winds of Change and Chain of Vapor. Dispel and Miscast should also be in here, and maybe even Foil for another free hard counter. It’s bad, but we don’t have access to Force, and losing three cards is better than losing the game.

Let’s cut some of the other expensive win cons like Sphinx-Bone Wand to run a few more mana rocks, like Coldsteel Heart and Sky Diamond. We only have one primary win condition now, but it’s much more effective and resilient, and we can keep our combat damage backup plan. If we really wanted to, we could play Proteus Staff to try and stack our deck in the event we draw both combo pieces/have had them killed, but I think that’s just super greedy and going to be a liability most of the time.

Amass the Components could be See Beyond. That way, we could keep the escape option if we accidentally draw our wincons, but we lower the cost by two. We could also shave Distant Melody and replace it with Chart a Course. It might be less cards total, but it’s half the price, and is always letting us see two cards. Careful Study could be in here too.

That’s all I can think of for now, but I really like this concept. Mostly, we just really need to bring down this curve. Best of luck!

Magnanimous on Burn. Sleep. Counter. Repeat.

Why Sprite Dragon out of all the options you have to pressure an opponent in this kind of deck. Have you considered Lightning Stormkin and/or Stormchaser Mage with Wizard's Retort and Wizard's Lightning, Brineborn Cutthroat, Grim Lavamancer, Spectral Sailor, Sea-Dasher Octopus, or Pteramander? Does the deck need Anger of the Gods or does the burn take care of creatures well enough?

I'm curious how well Light Up the Stage fits. It's an instant speed deck for the most part with some burn and creatures to activate it, but hitting Remand and Ral, Storm Conduit for example would be useless. Thunderous Wrath seems amazing when it hits but is that good enough to balance out the times it just sits in your hand? I'd prefer something like Searing Blaze, which seems to be perfect for the deck. Chart a Course also seems nice, but it's sorcery speed which sucks. Have you thought of using Curious Obsession?
