Spectral Searchlight is fun when you have a teammate since you can use it to give your teammate mana. At any rate I think it's better than Mana Prism. Pariah could be fun since you can enchant opponents' creatures with it.

You might like these too: Magus of the Candelabra , Fertile Ground , Market Festival , Captured by the Consulate , Silence , Pir's Whim , Virtus's Maneuver , Zndrsplt's Judgment , Imperial Mask , Capital Punishment , Torment of Hailfire , Exsanguinate , Overwhelming Splendor , Curse of Shallow Graves

Some curses are better than others. I'd cut Curse of Vitality for sure, it won't really influence other people that much. Curse of Shallow Graves is pretty situational as well, and Curse of the Bloody Tome can actually help the opponent.

Navigator's Ruin i'd only run if you really want to mill, and Kaya's Ghostform won't often help as much as you like. I really don't see what Shield of the Realm wants to do here, nor Strider Harness .

I'd cut the guild lockets and replace them with the signets.

For some cards to add, i'd recommend at least looking at Bident of Thassa for card draw, Sigil of the Empty Throne , Etchings of the Chosen , Smothering Tithe , Intangible Virtue , Divine Visitation , Etherium Sculptor , Magus of the Moat , and Sphere of Safety

I can come up with some more suggestions if you like, these are just off the top of my head

Bedevil is a pretty versatile control spell if you need more of that.

Palace Siege and Retreat to Hagra are decent lifedrain enchantments to whittle down opponents.

Curse of Shallow Graves if you like the politics of curses.

Also Wargles, Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods does not affect lifedrain like Exsanguinate because it's not considered damage. Still good cards though.

DrkNinja, while I do reeaaalllyy agree with your card suggestions, I should have stated first that this is a budget deck. Hahahahaha. Sorry.

I just started magic a few weeks ago, and I have inherited from my brother his Trostani EDH deck, and as long as I keep to myself for the first few turns and stay alive, I automatically win, with huge creatures all over the field hitting 2-3 people in one turn and dealing lethal to them. But I wanna change that for a bit and try to create a deck of my own playstyle.

I agree that most of my cards don't really have much worth come mid or late game, but I find it fun trying to keep others from winning. I also checked your deck and I found really good stuff to consider bringing over here to mine.

Cards I'm considering:

Pillow Forts:

Counterspells:

Exile cards:

Enchantments:

Others:

*Cards I have in extra

Though some of your suggestions such as Curse of Opulence and Curse of Bloodletting are really good, I don't think it's legal for me to put it in an esper themed deck. Also, Curse of Shallow Graves doesn't really do much for me, I'd rather put in Curse of Disturbance , as I also get a zombie whenever that player is attacked. I know that it's weird, but I would try to minimize each opponent's gains from my enchantments too much. Incentivizing them to attack another player is good, but them getting 2/2 zombies who can hit me too, would be real bad.

Vedalken Orrery is reaallyyy good for this deck but it's priced up way too high for me. This is the first time I've heard of Forcefield , and no. I wouldn't be able to afford it, and if I could, I definitely wouldn't be downgrading everything else in this deck. Ahahahahahaha

Any suggestions as to which cards I could do without?

First let me start by saying that if your goal is to win, I think you are missing value... You have 8 cards that require voting and 3 cards that affect your ability to change votes... I think that of those only 4 or 5 cards are worth their weight. I like the concept of the deck, I even built a version of politics matters deck called Politically Motivated. which is themed after House of Cards but it's in Mardu colors. I think you'd be better off cutting the cards that affect the voting outcome and play some pillow fort. Ghostly Prison , Propaganda , Collective Restraint , Glacial Chasm , and Sphere of Safety are all great cards for that purpose. I also think you should play a bit more counter magic, stuff like Arcane Denial so that you tell them no and give them a slap on the ass at the same time! Honestly some spells will resolve and destroy your boardstate so it's worth playing a few. I also think that Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , and Anguished Unmaking are pretty relevant to deal with cards that are indestructible.

Also here are some fun political cards I used that you may like.

Also Humility + Forcefield is a great combo for pillow fort I forgot about... and Humility is far better than Overwhelming Splendor.

Lastly Greater Auramancy isn't political but... most of your political tools are enchantments so... you could also add Enchanted Evening for shits and giggles.

The cards that I would personally recommend cutting are:

Helldozer: it would attract a lot of hate, and is really pretty slow to do much.

Phylactery Lich: a card that is almost exclusively stats, and just a 5/5 (even with indestructible) isn't usually that relevant.

Fated Return: 7 mana to resurrect a creature and maybe scry 2 just isn't that great in my opinion. If you're looking for something similar, I would recommend Rise of the Dark Realms. 2 more mana for all creatures instead of just one.

Curse of Shallow Graves: if I'm reading this correctly, this is only one 2/2 even if you attack with multiple creatures. And only attacking one player. And your opponents get it too.

Marchesa's Decree: conditional card draw with maybe some life loss? Ehhhh....

Trespasser's Curse: great against token decks, but largely irrelevant otherwise.

Mind Shatter: I think this could be good if you have a discard subtheme, which is definitely possible...maybe add a Sangromancer?

Cellar Door: way too inefficient...3 mana for maybe a 2/2?

Lich's Tomb: I think this is too risky and could easily blow you out

Another thing I'm noticing is the severe lack of ramp and card draw. There's plenty of Zombie synergy, but you're never going to get there if you have very little mana and an empty hand. I would recommended adding some Gilded Lotuses, Thran Dynamos, Worn Powerstones, Jet Medallion, as well as Phyrexian Arena or even Sign in Blood.

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.

Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!
