I would cut Deem Worthy for something like Cut / Ribbons, also 4 Lightning Axe is a bit much, I would drop it to 2. Also I would cut the Heart-Piercer Manticore for something else, maybe for Tormenting Voice or Cathartic Reunion.

I like the general idea! Sin Prodder would either do massive damage to your opponent or you would get to play Approach of the Second Sun! I think this concept would go fairly well with Combustible Gearhulk, and he's pretty budget.

I think even in a budget deck, Desert Cerodon and River Serpent are good enough. I get that they cycle, but they're so expensive for what they offer. Deem Worthy is a pretty decent removal spell that can be cycled and still kill a creature. And Cast Out can help get rid of pesky Planeswalkers.

Just some thoughts. Cool deck!

Are Flame Lash or Deem Worthy really worth it over Cut? I love some of the synergies in this deck though. I forgot Curious Homunculus  Flip was a thing. Have you tried playing more than 1 Fevered Visions? Its really good, but its a card I'd either play 4 of or none. It combos with itself too well. I'd also consider Bedlam Reveler over Sin Prodder and possible remove the singleton Thing in the Ice  Flip. Or move to 2, if that's a wincon your going for. Fatal Push is everywhere though, so Thing in the Ice  Flip strats are risky. Finally, I'd swap out Unsubstantiate for Censor, but that's just me.

Hi, I have a few suggestions, but overall the deck looks sweet, very impressive for your first attempt at brewing.

One, your deck looks like it might tend to run out of steam lategame. Glimmer of Genius should help out with that a lot, allowing you dig for whatever cards you need and refilling your hand. I'd also replace Deem Worthy with Harnessed Lightning, as it works well with the previously mentioned Glimmer, and Deem Worthy has a bit of nonbo with the Mage.

Slip Through Space seems a little underwhelming in this deck, even though the Mage has prowess, I don't think you're going to be all out going off like in a Modern prowess deck, so I think i'd cut that as well.

I'd also make room for just a few more creatures. This deck does want to run a lot of instants and sorceries, but with the current meta the way it is, you should probably have a better back up plan for when you don't draw your Mages and you don't have enough mana for a Glorybringer. I think both Enigma Drake could be great here, as a high powered flier, and Baral, Chief of Compliance to allow you to sling spells at reduced cost.

Finally, Dynavolt Tower seems like it could possibly fit well here. Maybe a few copies on the sideboard at least? I'm not really seeing the use of the Crackdown Constructs there.

Soul-Scar Mage gives non-combat damage wither* (not infect)

and Flame Lash is probably a better fit then Deem Worthy and can hit players/walkers

Shwang,
Ok, Exemplar of Strength is my vote for best Common/Uncommon, and Glorybringer for best overall.

Here are some more thoughts though on my favorite Commons/Uncommons:

Draw well!

ERoss8 interesting points. I think you're right in that both Deem Worthy and Cast Out will be very effective in limited. I think Cast Out will see plenty of play in Standard also.

Black does seem to fit with the other colors the best, but I think for limited, green will also have a big impact because of the sheer power. There are some big creatures in this set for cheap. Like Pinewoodboy0324 mentioned, cards like Crocodile of the Crossing and Exemplar of Strength will be tough for opponents to deal with.
