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.

I highly recommend four things:

1) using tutors or draw/scry to improve chances of getting a Lord of the Unreal . I'm thinking Muddle the Mixture is probably near the top of the list in this department, but Serum Visions or the like would probably be helpful, too. Running both would not be overkill.

2) including something to make a clone of the Lord - ususally Phantasmal Image , though there are lots of other cards that "clone" ( Clone , for example)

3) Cut Jace's Phantasm . It's a cool card, but without mill and there being another 32 creatures without it, I think those 4 slots can be better filled with non-creature spells.

4) fixing the description to say "Lord of the Unreal" instead of "Master of the Unreal"

Other things:

1x Halimar Depths might be useful.

I've wanted to build a deck with Pongify in it for a long time. I don't think it's a super fit here, but I like my aggro decks to have removal and there's not a lot of options in blue.

Imprisoned in the Moon comes to mind as another removal option.

I think you could afford to drop as many as 4 lands. You have a very low AVG CMC, so it will be better to draw creature spells more frequently. I suggest dropping 1-2x, playtesting a bunch and going from there.

Sideboard spells to consider: Elixir of Immortality , Hurkyl's Recall , Vapor Snag , Ratchet Bomb , Pithing Needle

triproberts12 on Look out Knight Tribal, a new jank tribal is here

This is a challenging tribe to build around. I would recommend checking out Saffron Olive's video on finding the competitive advantage of your tribe. Also, Tomer built a phoenix tribal deck for Commander Clash not too long ago. Watch the end to see how he wins, because it's pretty great.

In terms of specific cards, I think Mana Echoes would go well, since you need a lot of mana to enable phoenixes. Thundermaw Hellkite could be good. Lose Temple of the False God and Dormant Volcano , though, because those are awful cards. The former because it's useless as a 3rd, 4th, or 5th land, and the latter because it's just asking to be strip-mined and is both slow and makes colorless mana.

Finally, you might want to consider adding a second color. For example, in blue, you gain access to Favorable Winds , Gravitational Shift (It's freaking Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite in your deck), Sprite Noble , Stormtide Leviathan , Windstorm Drake , Warden of Evos Isle , Windreader Sphinx , Kindred Discovery , Call to the Kindred , Distant Melody , Mistform Warchief , Faces of the Past , Riptide Shapeshifter , Saheeli's Artistry , Sakashima's Student , Sakashima the Impostor , Metamorphic Alteration , Phantasmal Image , Clone , Quicksilver Gargantuan , Protean Raider , Mirror Image , Gigantoplasm , Stunt Double , Clever Impersonator , Dack's Duplicate , Phyrexian Metamorph , Coastal Piracy , and Bident of Thassa .

In white, you get Archon of Redemption , Energy Storm , Magus of the Moat (and Moat if you have unlimited money), Radiant, Archangel , Serra Aviary , Soulcatcher , Spirit of the Spires , Harsh Mercy , Shared Triumph , Kindred Boon , Mirror Entity , Radiant Destiny , . Going into Jeskai also gives you Teferi's Moat and Thunderclap Wyvern .

Tibor and Lumia would be my choice for an Izzet commander, Aurelia, the Warleader would be my choice for Boros, and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus + Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker would be my choice for Jeskai.

Hi there, I'm from the advertise your commander thread.

I used to have a Nin, the Pain Artist deck based on stealing and copying your opponents stuff. I always liked to win using your opponents cards, so its nice to see a deck with a similar theme.

I think your current build has a lot of room for optimization as there are many cards that have strictly or subjectively better counterparts. These are some suggestions for cards I would replace and what with:

I would probably drop the flicker subtheme you currently have because you dont run a lot of creatures and go down a few lands (37 should be fine) in favor of more draw (Rhystic Study & Mystic Remora are nice). Also, one of the good things about black is the access to tutors. By adding tutors you increase the consistency of your deck, as they effectively serve as an extra copy of all the other cards in your deck. Lim-Dul's Vault, Beseech the Queen and Dark Petition are some good relatively cheap ones. (If you want to invest a bit of money in it, Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are great.)

I hope this helps and good luck with deckbuilding!

PS. Dont forget to comment on the previously posted deck in the 'advertise your commander deck' thread. ;)

Clone Toothy. Toothy dies, draw x cards and put x counters on the Clone. Even better if Toothy was going to die and you Stunt Double. Get a Clone card into a Soul Foundry or Mimic Vat and do it at will.

TheRoflCoptr on Nature's Revenge

If you're looking for Clone variants, look no further than Clever Impersonator, it can copy creatures and any other nonland permanent.

I would run a Scroll Rack or some other card to help Sylvan Library work with Oracle of Mul Daya and Courser of Kruphix to get you extra lands (and remove any unwanted fatties/smooth out draws).

The tap and blink effects don't work well together, so that may be an issue. The idea of blinking a Mystic Snake is hilarious.

Most of the cards you want to blink are fatties, so instant speed bounce/blink can protect them. Conjurer's Closet seems too costly and unresponsive, although it is consistent.Venser, Shaper Savant and Ghostly Flicker come to mind.

Academy Ruins is kind of meh in this deck. Maybe an Ancient Tomb for quickness?

Minor stuff: I would exchange Voidslime for Disallow as it's slightly less color intensive.

Hope this helps!

Adds:

Hellkite Charger if you are going to have the Savage Ventmaw.

Wild Pair

Temur Ascendancy

I would take out Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund because someone could cast Clone and steal all of your dragons.

I run the Ur too, you should check out my strategy.

I think you can cut out some of the weaker sphinxes for clones (Clone, Clever Impersonator, Stunt Double, Phyrexian Metamorph etc) so that you can have multiples of your better sphinxes. The clones can also give you another angle of attack by copying your opponent's game-changer creatures.

I'd also recommend Thassa, God of the Sea as a source of card advantage that also help your creatures punch through blockers for the win.
