Hey, nice budget deck :)

  • 4x Island
  • Highland Lake
  • Izzet Guildgate
  • Thunderstaff
  • Star Compass
  • Sphere of the Suns
  • Gravitational Shift
  • Reins of Power
  • Blustersquall
  • Aether Gale

Updraft , Force Void , Blessed Wine , and Rime Dryad are all pretty mediocre, but I like the theme.

I also like Icy Manipulator both for flavor and for utility. Dark Depths might be out of your price range, but it is such a cool flavor card. also on that list is Glacial Chasm . Some more enter the battlefield creatures might be really helpful things like Eternal Witness and Hornet Queen are busted good with roon. Eon Hub does things in this deck. I have no idea if it is a good card or not for the deck, but it certainly does things.

Some cool things to think about (specifically cool for you, and very uncool for your opponents). If you can make your opponents lands snow covered all of a sudden Balduvian Conjurer and Balduvian Frostwaker make them removable with creature removal like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile can now remove lands. Which I guess for those specific removal cards seems pretty bad, but uh Sunscour after making all of your opponent's lands into 2/2's with the frostwaker seems pretty hilarious to me.

I think you're going to want all the mana you can get, so I'd look at signets cluestones and the like in your color pie. so like Simic Signet and Selesnya Cluestone .

Altogether your list is super fun and flavorful, could it have more focus on making a specific win condition go? like Worldly Tutor to get out the Rimefeather Owl consistently? Sure, but this schema is going to be tough to break, which is why it is fun. I think you could do more board clears and more making your opponent's lands into creatures, but I think that will make your play group dislike you pretty quickly. Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper might be fun if you want to go all in on making your lands into creatures and winning that way. And with that dude, you could go with Devastation Tide and Rude Awakening . There are a bunch of things your list could be sharpened into. Hope this helps.

One more thing i have noticed. Depending on your meta you might want some mass bounce. Evacuation AEtherize Wash Out Engulf the Shore Devastation Tide

Telepathy is underrated btw

Thx for the suggestions. I especially like Devastation Tide especially for its great budget. Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep gave me a few ideas for commander.

Few cards can properly mimic it, but Devastation Tide returns all non-land permanents to the hand, and is cheap for its miracle cost, and Evacuation can return all creatures including yours. There are the creatures with a similar ability like Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep for non-sea creature creatures when kicked, Aethersquall Ancient for all creatures except it, and or a conditional enemy only creature bounce through Scourge of Fleets , which relies on having a lot of islands out.

Edit- Noticed Devastation tide was recommended.

Devastation Tide is always a powerhouse. Can be cast for 2 mana and can bounce everything. Not the same, but really budget!

Looks a great ramp package, happy to see the talismans along with the signets. I wouldn't touch the ramp as it is, I think it's great.

I think you could use another board wipe or two. The best on theme that come to mind are: Terminus and Devastation Tide .

I do think this is a great deck for the new God-Eternal Kefnet thanks to having a Brainstorm effect in the command zone. Bolas's Citadel also looks like a good thing to try and I'd be running it in my Rashmi, Eternities Crafter 's deck if she supported black.

If you can find one, I really think Sensei's Divining Top would be awesome in this deck. Sensei's Divining Top ability to draw a card at instant speed for no mana is great with the new God-Eternal Kefnet . Sensei's Divining Top also works wonders with Bolas's Citadel , allowing you to effectively pay 1 life to draw a card.

I'm not entirely sure why Mindblade Render is in the deck, just for draw?

Overall, looks great. Great ramp, removal, and draw. The only concern I have is how you close out the game. I see your win-con section, but it doesn't look like much. Maybe I'm overlooking some, but just make sure you can seal the deal once you're set up. I'm looking forward to facing it.
