Masterful on Necronomicon | Teysa Karlov | Speculation Primer

FutureWitness Secure the Wastes is viable, but Martial Coup 's versatility and ability to wipe the board is definitely useful, especially in a deck that cares about its own creatures dying. I'm also playing it over other board wipes such as Merciless Eviction , Cleansing Nova , Fumigate , and Wrath of God just for its ability to make tokens.

Here are 20 cards you can consider cutting:

Hope that helps cutting!

You forgot Savannah (^:

it's hard to tell if you're going to focus equip or auras, but if you end up min-maxing one, you should probably run Austere Command instead of (or in conjunction with) Cleansing Nova, since Austere gives you more flexibility (i.e. not blowing up all your equips).

Blasphemous Act, Austere Command, Cleansing Nova and Boros Charm for boardwipe and protection? Arcane Denial and Disdainful Stroke are really versatile. Sunforger is great in a deck with a lot of instants. Also, your land count is really low if you want to face 6 opponents. You should up your land count at least to 33. Temple of the False God is a trap in this deck, since you have a low land count. Battlefield Forge, Shivan Reef, Prairie Stream, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse are some lands you might include.

Lots of good feedback here! I will try to hit everything.

Carnage Tyrant is absolutely a problem, and as I mentioned more Settle the Wreckage and Cleansing Nova would be some of my first moves in G2 or G3. I struggle against it in G1, but in G2 and beyond, Unmoored Ego hurts bad. Detection Tower seems possible, but I don't want more than 1, and if you don't get it then it won't matter anyway.

As far as removing my own creatures to open up spots for other cards, I think I would take out Azor, the Lawbringer before Chromium, the Mutable. The pseudo hexproof is better than no hexproof, and it can flash in on CT. I'm also considering Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, as flipping him can be damn near a win-con, or Niv-Mizzet, Parun, as there are a fair number of instants and sorceries.

I considered Ral, Izzet Viceroy but decided against it because I think Karn, Scion of Urza does things better. I like that Karn provides a way to get the 2nd card back. If you draw two good cards, it hurts to put one in the yard since I don't do much in the way of recursion, especially with spells.

For card draw, I think Chemister's Insight might go to the board and switch with Risk Factor against those life-gainy type decks, but so far Risk Factor has worked pretty smoothly (if you're low life and let me draw, that's the preferred outcome). With Karn and Search for Azcanta  Flip, I have a pretty decent setup to see cards or filter them, so even if its not more draw the draws are more efficient.

The one-ofs are mostly in there for fun, and I have a soft spot for Thaumatic Compass  Flip. Its been really helpful against Izzet Drakes/Izzet Phoenix decks, and even helps stall out something like Adanto Vanguard, which can be difficult to remove.

Justice Strike has saved me so many times against Lyra Dawnbringer when I didn't have a counter in hand and against Niv-Mizzet, Parun or a big Enigma Drake or Crackling Drake. On the draw, its hard to have a counter for a T3 drake who can sit on the board and just get big. Might go down to 2 in the main, but I would be hesitant to take it out altogether.

Thank you for all the feedback, I will keep adjusting the deck and trying things out, and with Orzhov, Azorious, and Rakdos all in the next set I'm sure there will be a few new cards fighting for spots.
