Curse of the Swine Discussion

Starsky2814, i think those are excellent choices! I didn't even know about Winds of Abandon, I got to pick one up just due to its general playability. Heliod's Intervention and Curse of the Swine came to mind after reading your post.

I like this deck, I've always wanted a red/blue wizard deck and this one has a lot of potential. So I do want to disclaimer and say that my suggestions are not criticisms, and also I did not consider your budget or your collection lol. Lastly this is suggestions with just a cursory glance. Azami, Lady of Scrolls is pretty amazing in any wizard deck. Sol Ring, Izzet Signet, Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Wayfarer's Bauble, and Talisman of Creativity are all low cost mana rocks that will help your deck ramp quickly. Mystic Sanctuary, Steam Vents, and Reliquary Tower are decent utility lands. Counterspell, Cyclonic Rift, Vandalblast, Expansion / Explosion, Blue Sun's Zenith, Chaos Warp, Curse of the Swine, and Fact or Fiction are all really good answer cards (I know rift is 20$ but it's still a staple). Baral, Chief of Compliance, Adeliz, the Cinder Wind, and Vedalken AEthermage are amazing utility creatures. Thousand-Year Storm turns all your spells into storm spells. Primal Amulet Flip helps mana costs and then copies spells. There's a few more things I can't really think of any, but my sources indicate that x spells do real well in a deck like this. Hope some of these help.

Oops I forgot to include Coastal Breach, but still if I only have to worry about Evacuation, Curse of the Swine, and Wash Out (there are more, but these three I see the most) then I am a-O.K with that.

You should be running Elemental Bond and Garruk's Uprising you're almost always paying 3 or more into x so they're great. Vastwood Hydra might be a better creature than some of your choices. Curse of the Swine would be neat as creature removal. Capricopian is an amazing hydra that will bounce around your opponents getting bigger till they run out of mana. If you're not on a budget is suggest Doubling Season and Kalonian Hydra for obvious reasons. Then there's x card draw like Blue Sun's Zenith, Thassa's Intervention, Mind Spring, Pull from Tomorrow, or Stroke of Genius. Honestly I'd suggest any of the intervention cards, they're excellent. Think about replacing one of your non basics with Zagoth Triome and Opulent Palace and maybe Sunken Hollow
So as for cuts. Trophy Mage, Umbral Mantle, Basalt Monolith, Altar of Dementia, I'd suggest ditching some artifact rocks for some green land ramp like Farseek or Rampant Growth, and take out a few of your artifact rocks in general because you're in green and your ramp already is solid. Reclamation Sage, Elixir of Immortality, Vorel of the Hull Clade, Nimbus Swimmer. Now I would like to say that I'm not trying to hate on your deck, I quite like the concept, but I do think you need to hone in on your strategy, play an x card, make a hydra, draw into the next x card, cast that card, make another hydra. It's a great deck and I enjoy the way you built it, just trying to do as you said and help you cut some cards, and at the same time I wanted to point out a couple things you might've missed

Without targeting your commander, 3 is the highest value you could have.
You need to have X separate, legal targets for Curse of the Swine. If there are only 3 creatures that you want to target, X can be at most 3.
Hope this helps!!

I had Zaxara, the Exemplary on the field and my opponent had 3 creatures, I cast Curse of the Swine where X is 3 but I wanted to get X as big I could but didn't know whether I could because there weren't enough target creatures and I didn't want to target my commander.
am I correct or could I have gotten x as big as I could so I could have gotten a big hydra out of it.

You’ll probably want to up the land count to 35-36 since that is a much better number of lands to ensure you hit your land drops.
Aetherflow also can’t be in the deck since for Commander you can only have cards that have the same color as your commander and it has a Blue/White mana symbol.
Some good budget cards you can pick up are Reality Shift , Frantic Search , Rewind , Etherium Sculptor , Curse of the Swine , Trophy Mage , Tribute Mage , Sharding Sphinx , Mirrodin Besieged , Thopter Spy Network , Foundry Inspector , Myr Battlesphere , Chief of the Foundry , Stoic Rebuttal , and Manifold Key
