+1 for DRAKES!
Arcane Denial? I have found it is better than Counterspell, because you don't lose a card, and even though an opponent gets two cards, putting them one over you on the exchange, if you use counterspell, two opponents (whichever two you don't stop's spell) are one up on you in the exchange.

Oh that is nice, one minor downside is the spell you countered might make you have bad blood with the guy with new cards, generally I have found players react like, "Oh, since you countered my spell, at least you gave me some cards, I don't mind that much," still, a few times players have been like,
"How DARE you counter my turn 2 Gilded Lotus, I was going to win next turn! Not I have to play at a normal rate and not off of my turn one Sol Ring Dimir Signet! I will spend the rest of the game using the cards you gave me to end you!"
Normally since everyone knows they are being a jerk, the next guy casts a By Force for three mana, blowing up the Sol Ring and Dimir Signet, and the next guy swings his creatures at him, so it won't matter too much, but if you play in a group where "bad blood" or holding grudges is a regular thing, Arcane Denial might not be as good as Counterspell, still, I like Arcane Denial more since it is easier to cast and there really isn't holding grudges in my playgroup.

Wow, great power on this budget +1!
Isn't Arcane Denial cheaper and better than Counterspell? It replaces itself (and yes, it does give card advantage to an opponent), but that mean that only one opponent gets a better deal out of it, whereas with Counterspell, both you and one opponent are down a card and two opponents are better than you on that trade. With Arcane Denial only one is, so I think that because it is cheap in real life, and easier to splash in game, you might want to try it out!

Genesis Wave is super cheap and can do work in builds like this any day, commonly you hit so many lands you can still cast a ton of stuff it you dropped itw tith like 15 mana up, Rapid Hybridization and Nature's Claim are very powerful cheap removal in your color, if you want that.
You can also run Arcane Denial as a better version of Counterspell (the reason it is considered better than counterspell is because it replaces itself. With Counterspell, you are down a card and so if the opponent who's spell you countered, leaving two players above you in terms of cards, with Arcane Denial, only one opponent is above you in cards, the person who you countered.)

SemperKels0, no problem! I absolutely love Commander as a format, and Some of my friends have called me Sarkhan because I REALLY love Dragons.
I advocate for Thunderbreak Regent because he’ll almost always draw out a removal spell if they have one, or if you abuse cards like Rite of Replication, then the damage becomes much more significant.
Sarkhan's Unsealing is great because almost all of your stuff is going to have power 4 or greater, so it’s free removal.
Really glad you enjoyed my suggestions and I hope I can continue to be helpful!! T/O won’t let me suggest cards from M19 because it says they’re not legal to use yet, but they are and they’re definitely good.
