Pieguy396 on SBT Budget (Blue Green Black)

Hey there! Sorry it's taken me so long to get to this; I've been very busy the past few days. Your deck looks like a very well-built combo deck; I don't know how much of a help I'm going to be able to be. My biggest suggestion would probably just be more tutors and ways to find your combo pieces: Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Deep Analysis, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Imperial Seal, Cruel Tutor, etc. I know adding those cards would make you go above your budget, but quite frankly, that's really the only thing I think your deck needs; you appear to be in a great place already. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but that's all I've got.

If you'd like more suggestions/feedback on this deck or another deck in the future, feel free to leave a comment on my profile!

Maybe I should actually give some constructive budget suggestions rather than just ragging on the deck, huh?

I love Quiet Speculation and think it is vastly underrated. It gets better when more colors are added, but even in mono blue you can go get Deep Analysis for card draw, Cackling Counterpart to copy a Scourge of Fleets or whatever your Phyrexian Metamorph has become, or Artful Dodge to make sure your beater is truly unblockable.

Confound would be a good way to protect the commander.

Trophy Mage can search up your Loxodon Warhammer, Crawlspace or Chromatic Lantern (I would replace that one with Unstable Obelisk or Worn Powerstone).

Treasure Mage can get Spine of Ish Sah, Argentum Armor or Staff of Nin

Trinket Mage gets Basilisk Collar if you really want to keep that, and of course Sol Ring too. You can swap in Wayfarer's Bauble for Wanderer's Twig or the other one for actual ramp, not just a tutor. Brittle Effigy is another great target for the trinket tutorer.

JackBattle Yes, you can only do loops once you have infinite mana and Thrasios. You deck your opponents by forcing them to draw two cards per cast of Deep Analysis.

Hmmn... I agree. We'll drop Preordain back in for Deep Analysis.

Awww I love Preordain, Deep Analysis I'm not a fan of. That card is good in decks that can put it in the graveyard and cast it from there.

With six mana you could Opportunity or Dragonlord's Prerogative and hold onto 3 life. Or just some way cheaper draw spell like Impulse or Concentrate. Two casts off one card is cool, but that's about all that card really offers.

Seven cuts? We got this.

Dovin Baan, Silence, Deep Analysis, Blue Sun's Zenith, Worn Powerstone, Future Sight, Twincast.

Those would be my recommendations. Other considerations could be Stroke of Genius, Evacuation, or Curse of the Swine. Of those 10 cut 7, and then play test from there to see how the deck plays.

I might be swinging you away from spell-slinging a little, but Ojutai gives repeated card advantage. You can be more selective with draw spells.

Hi Dake, thanks for the tip. I'm glad to hear you like Breya, and that it works for you in your meta. You must really be kicking ass for people to resort to playing Nevermore on your general. :) I haven't gotten around to trying Sunscorched Desert but I appreciate the report - I'll definitely try running it. Actually I didn't realize the desert ETB'd untapped. That's better than I thought. I think if I drop Bazaar I'd also drop Deep Analysis. And maybe Urborg.

But, demonicgrizzly, that scenario works with Bazaar of Baghdad, too. It's described above. (But, it mills your whole deck, then you can move the animate dead onto lab man, then you win off the last bazaar activation.)
