Docent of Perfection Discussion

I like Docent of Perfection  Flip in wizard decks. Willbreaker can also be pretty fun. My favorite Nekusar cards are Vicious Shadows, Forced Fruition, and Curiosity.
I also really like Dack Fayden to mini wheel your opponents. Dragon Mage is probably good in here too. I don't know about your play group, but Wheel effects are generally well received in mine, they are disruptive, but don't leave players with nothing to play, which is un-fun IMHO.
Good Luck!

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.

Here are some things I don't see that you might like: Docent of Perfection, Galecaster Colossus, Information Dealer, Supreme Inquisitor.

First off, you've got 2 of Verdant Confluence in your deck.

I'm not sure if the Doubling Cube combo really fits well in the deck. You don't really have enough mana to justify doubling, and Filigree Sages doesn't even work well with anything besides the cube.

In addition, some of your token generation (admittedly all ones you classified as weak) doesn't feel very impactful for its cost. Hornet Nest is an ok rattlesnake card, but you don't have any way to ensure that it generates tokens. Sekki, Seasons' Guide doesn't really feel like it does enough to justify its huge mana cost. Followed Footsteps is a really cool card, but it feels like it would too often just be 5 mana to do nothing, since you need to wait a whole turn cycle before it does anything, and gets 2-for-1ed incredibly easily. I'm also not sure if you have enough instants/sorceries to justify Docent of Perfection  Flip.

There are a bunch of great token generators that synergize very nicely with your deck. Cultivator of Blades gives a repeatable Overrun-style effect (albeit without trample) and brings with it some tokens to pump. Whirler Rogue lets you tap the tokens it creates to make your stuff unblockable. They may not exactly fit well with your deck, but I've found Awakening Zone and From Beyond to be incredibly effective token producers.

You suggested to replace Mosswort Bridge from the precon, but I feel that that's a big mistake. With Ezuri, you can easily meet its condition, and not only does it let you play the card for free, but also at instant speed. Imagine flashing in a Consecrated Sphinx in response to a wheel, or maybe Edric, Spymaster of Trest after your opponent decides not to block your team. Another great land for this deck is Rogue's Passage, giving you another unblockable effect on a land.

For more inspiration, check out my Ezuri deck (We're Gonna Need a LOT of Dice).

Mandalorian on Teferi's Magical Mystery Tour

Hello Shane.Allen, I'm sorry it's taken some time to get back to you, I've been away for a couple of weeks. I agree with Polybius that some more "tax" like cards could be good. Maybe Laboratory Maniac as another wincon with Enter the Infinite? The problem with making card suggestions with a deck like this with low synergy and more Mono U good stuff is that there is ton of ways to build it and for it to still be good. I think it will mainly come down to preference for you. Here are some cards to consider if you havnt already, and mind you I don't have suggestions of what to take out for them since it's just good stuff for good stuff.

Teferi, Temporal Archmage

Copycats- Phyrexian Metamorph, Clever Impersonator, and/or Phantasmal Image

Vedalken Shackles

Stormtide Leviathan

Docent of Perfection

Voidmage Husher

Gilded Drake

Sphinx of the Final Word (I'm making the assumption that you are playing Teferi is because there is a decent amount of control in your group and Teferi is very very good against them, as is this card)

Pact of Negation

Pongify, Reality Shift, and Rapid Hybridization can help with removal since Blue struggles in that category

Mind Over Matter is another combo you could add with Azami in your deck to draw your deck

Hope this give you more to brew with!

Thoughts on Recent Additions

Docent of Perfection-this card is so much worse than metallurgic summonings why cant you see this

Goblin Electromancer- dual color requirements and unimpressive body makes this worse than curious homunculus, speaking of which,

Curious Homunculus- Better than I thought it was going to be, Voracious Reader  Flip is a good beater/blocker and 4 toughness + prowess makes it hard to remove with burn

Niblis of Frost/Talrand, Sky Summoner- I never found myself wanting to cast these cards. 4 mana is a lot of investment into something that will just eat a removal spell

Thing in the Ice  Flip- Not quite as good as I had imagined it being, but I think it still merits a slot due to its ability to take over a board if left unchecked

As Foretold- this card is bonkers, its so good

Sphinx's Tutelage- Also I'm not as high on this card anymore, there are a lot of matchups where it will just help the opponent

Abrade- very good, all star card

Insidious Will/Rewind- Agreed that 4 mana is too much for these counterspells.

Misdirection- This is much less good than Force of Will.

Pongify/Rapid Hybridization- I cut one of these for an option that had some card advantage/manipulation

Gamble- Went down the gamble. The addition of Rise from the Tides means that Personal Tutor is more likely what we want in the deck
