multimedia on Commander mono blue control

Hey, looks good for a first Commander deck.

Talrand can be a nice budget control Commander, but he needs a lot more instants than I see here. Spells that can help you dig for other cards as well as draw. Take more advantage of Talrand's ability to make creatures and play more cheap mana instants and sorceries instead of so many creatures. Creatures like Mnemonic Wall who you've included and my suggestions of Archaeomancer, Docent of Perfection and Curious Homunculus are the kind of abilities you want with creatures because they also go with the control/ Drake making strategy of Talrand. Creatures such as Slither Blade and Storm Fleet Aerialist look out of place because if controlling you don't want aggressive creatures or creatures that benefit from being aggressive.

You're on the right track with including several good cards: Brainstorm, Mystical Confluence, Mana Leak, Negate, Blue Sun's Zenith, Sol Ring, Thought Vessel, Reliquary Tower, Echoing Truth, etc. There's however a lot of cards that can be replaced for better budget options.


Good luck with your deck.

Nice deck!

I don't especially like the Woodland Stream, as opposed to a higher-impact utility land like Kessig Wolf Run, or Reliquary Tower. Also, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter isn't great if she's only being triggered on your turn in the turn cycle. Somberwald Sage is a great mana dork for a creature heavy deck. Finally, Teleportal is also higher impact than Counterflux. If you really want a counterspell in that spot, try Desertion.

Hope this helps!
