Deceiver Exarch Discussion

I might run Crypt, that's not a bad idea. Saheeli Rai unfortunately doesn't combo with Restoration Angel, and I like Jeskai Kiki Jiki more than Saheeli because it can win more easily without the combo. Deceiver Exarch is more of a Grixis Kiki Jiki card, but I might try out the Bell-Ringer. Where would you put the Supreme Verdict? In place of an Anger of the Gods?
And last but not least, thank you. You've been extremely helpful in the creation and the developing of Jeskai Control.

Hey man! Why no Saheeli Rai? Also, how about some Deceiver Exarch or Village Bell-Ringer? I believe these cards cater to your combo, heavily. Last, but not least--I think Supreme Verdict would suit this 75, well, as a 1x.
Wish you luck in your continued journey! I would upvote again, but...

I had quite a long breakdown typed up but the site ate it. In hindsight, this should be more comprehenisble.
Long story short, Monocolour will be cheapest and most stable. I'll steer you away from control, as in control you tend to see a lot of the deck, which means that any 'weak link' cards show up and lose you games, combined with control's bad place in the meta its not super efficient.
Budget Plow Under/Acidic Slime/Brutalizer Exarch is great if you have access to ramp and don't mind your opponnents hating you, Teir 1 Landloss' reliance on Blood Moon does mean you'll need a heavy variant. U fearie tempo is playable- Quickling and Spellstutter Sprite with Familiar's Ruse and cheaper etb, as well as some shenanigans with Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch. The key cards that make full faeries good and controlly, Cryptic Command and Vendilion Clique are pricy as all hell though, meaning your deck will have to fit into a different neiche, likely tempo. I'll reccomend mono red 'just spam hasty creatures' for aggro, or Hunted Horror(for leyline) with a mono black list for midrange. Duress covers for a lot of gaps. Boggles is tricky as the value is spread across a lot of cards. A similar setup running heroic triggers and fragile but strong/growing creatures with Vines of Vastwood/Blossoming Defense/Heroic Intervention will likely be your best bet. Ajani's Pridemate/Voracious Wurm/It That Rides as One Flip type cards. It will be slower as you'll need the mana for protection, so bear that in mind.
Silhana Ledgewalker/Gladecover Scout/Slippery Bogle/Invisible Stalker is pretty cheap, the trick is making them pump out the damage without the dumb enchantments or the protection of totem armour. You might manage that with a dumb interaction like Dictate of the Twin Gods, or just counterspells and Banshee's Blade type threat growing.
I enjoy building decks more than I enjoy playing, honestly, so If you let me know what sort of deck you want to emulate, I'll see what I can dredge up to support it. If you can figure out 3-4 cards you want to play every game, thats most of the deck already there.

I mean, not necessarily lol
it's not relevant anymore, but when Splinter Twin was still a thing, playing Coldsteel heart meant that you can kill their Deceiver Exarch after they flash it in at your EOT and attempt to combo off during turn 4, without coldsteel heart you have no way to kill it if they are on the play.

Hey dude, huge fan of the deck! Saw it on reddit, i really love the high tide package as well.
I would have to agree with Silber here, why not sub out Lotus Petal for Mox Diamond? I also think Wood Elves looks a bit weak here, maybe swap it out for Gamble. I understand it gives you a spot on the curve for Birthing Pod, but I'd rather have a Deceiver Exarch or Eternal Witness or recruiter 9.9/10 times. If you need ramp with GSZ, you have other options as well, even if they dont net you mana that turn.
I'm also not huge on Treasure Cruise. I mean its amazing, but does this really want to have to exile your gy and tap out for 3 cards? I like Dig Through Time a lot more (i see its included already), just because its an instant and gives you mana to interact on your opps' turns. Cruise is good, but in my experience, it can be challenging to fill up that graveyard enough. What do you think of Crop Rotation in here? boseiju seems really good with your big spells, and even cavern of souls could be decent. It might be nice to tutor up that protection.
Anyways, huge fan of the deck! I play rafiq in cedh, so its nice to see someone else with a tier 2 general trying to rep it out there. I really think we have the stuff it takes to compete, theres just not a lot of people who are still working on midrange decks like this in the format.

Looks good! Here are a couple catagories of cards I think you need more of though.
Board wipes: Sometimes the game gets out of hand and you just need a reset button to take care of the scary things your opponents are doing. I usually like 2-3 in my decks. Martial Coup also fits your token theme.
Creature removal: In almost every edh game you play, your opponents are going to cast creatures you need to get off the board, and fast.
the combo piece you are missing is Intruder Alarm. (it's also good by itself with your commander since you can untap everything at will if you need to)
I don't think Midnight Guard is a good card by itself like alarm is, but that goes infinite too.
Presence of Gond+ Sliver Queen+Intruder Alarm+ creatures that tap for a total of 2 mana also do it. ( if you add more creatures that tap for mana and can generate excess mana this way you create infinite mana in addition to infinite tokens)

Deadeye Navigator on flickers creatures, so it won't work with Gilded Lotus. The article said you'd flicker Deceiver Exarch or Pestermite to untap the lotus, and neither of those cards are in your deck.
Peregrine Drake is also not modern legal. It was printed in Urza's Saga, which is too old to be modern legal, as everything legal in modern must have at least one printing in a set in Eighth Edition or later, which drake does not.
