Omeros on Sygg has too many cards...

If I was nominated king of your list, here's what I'd do to cut cards and swap others.


Veteran of the Depths, Swiftfoot Boots, Deepchannel Mentor, Dream Fracture, Thassa, God of the Sea

Capsize - I'm not seeing infinite mana, so cut or use Chain of Vapor instead

And set aside all your cards designed to give islandwalk, unblockable, or turn lands into islands. Reduce this to a more compact package with redundancy rather than "this only works if I also have..." type cards.


Devouring Light --> Reality Shift

Fallowsage --> Merfolk Looter

Return to Dust --> Grasp of Fate or just cut, and bank more on counterspells and bounce

The main issues I'm seeing are a high curve with not enough ramp. I would cut some of your higher-costed wizards to make room for more mana rocks. Sakashima the Impostor and Fallowsage should be first on the chopping block, IMO. Also, cut Elixir of Immortality. It's not good. Run Time Spiral instead.

For mana rocks... well, what's your budget? Can you afford a Mana Crypt, or is that too much? At least put in Coldsteel Heart and Sapphire Medallion! Mana Vault is an excellent choice. Maybe run Aphetto Alchemist to go with it.

Also, you can make infinite mana... but what will you do with it?

(-) Sun Titan, since you don't seem to abuse his ETB and he won't bring that many creatures back.
(-) Enclave Cryptologist is a terrible card in my opinion. It just takes too much effort...
(-) Azorius Guildmage is kinda out of place, even though her activated abilities could be useful now and then.
(-) Phyrexian Metamorph is always useful in a blue deck, but I'd remove it.
(-) Leyline of Anticipation (same argument as the one before. It's useful, but unnecessary)
(-) Fact or Fiction (IMO is easily replaced by Foresee)
(-) drop Hinder in exchange for Memory Lapse
(-) Path to Exile. Yes, it is good, but it's also too damn expensive.
(-) Monastery Siege (I don't like this card :x)
(-) Winding Canyons (I also don't like this one HAHAHA)
(-) Tectonic Edge (in our playgroup I don't see it being all that useful... Same with Ghost Quarter)
(-) Sphinx's Revelation in exchange for Mind Spring

(+) Protective Bubble (and shroud)
(+) Merfolk Sovereign (so pretty)
(+) Fallowsage (if you find ways to tap it ;D)
(?) Merrow Commerce
(?) Silvergill Douser
(+) Summon the School

(?) Retreat to Coralhelm
(?) Ocular Halo

(+) Deluge
(+) AEtherize
(?) Evacuation (a more dramatic Aetherize hahaha)

(+) Exclude
(+) Remand
(+) Sage's Dousing
(+) Scatter Arc

(?) Flow of Ideas (worth it with 6+ islands...)
(?) Ghastly Discovery (conspire helps)
(?) Keep Watch (worth it with 3+ attacking creatures - not necessarily yours)
(?) Lat-Nam's Legacy and See Beyond are kinda similar, might be useful considering the low cmc)(?) Oona's Grace (drew a land and you don't need it? Cast with Retrace)

(+) Thought Reflection
(+) Honden of Seeing Winds

(+) Plea for Power (I love this card <3. 3 card draw or an extra turn... people might even give you he extra turn)
(+) Shelter

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is not out of place at all, to start off. When comboing with Mind Over Matter, having an Ulamog to discard, (and then shuffle those cards right back into your library) is great graveyard shuffling technique, especially since it can be done at instant speed.

Your counterspells are rather situational. Hard Counters are much more effective, here are some examples:

I don't know how competitive you want the deck to be, but my further suggestions will make this deck rather difficult to play against.

Azami is my baby girl, and my greatest passion comes into Azami decks. If you put at least half of these in your deck, you will be extremely hard to deal with, and if you add them all, it'll be close to impossible. Anyway, good luck! If you have thoughts on any of my suggestions, let us discuss! :)

First off, I wanna say, wizard tribal has and always will be a personal favorite of mine. So, +1 for showing common interests! And now on to suggestions and whatnot.

Beguiler of Wills is a strong card to have, with it being a wizard, and with the ability to steal other creatures that are potential threats. The "Must have more creatures than the power of stolen creature" is never a problem. Where be the Fallowsage? Extra card draw from it being tapped for whatever reason, is really good, especially in a deck that revolves around drawing cards. Fatespinner is another great card that locks down opponents from doing everything they want. From experience, they will skip combat, which is very helpful to furthering your own board position without fear of being attacked.

Information Dealer would be a good addition. The more wizards you have, the stronger he is. What better way to play then draw exactly the cards you want at instant speed. Also, for additional protection, Kira, Great Glass-Spinner provides a great barrier each turn against targeted bad-stuff.

Let's talk a little about prevention tactics and cards that go well with it. First off, throw in a Lullmage Mentor, because if you have that and Kira and/or Patron Wizard in play, you will be getting many tokens. While your counterspell stash is good, there are some better options out there that are either cheaper, or aren't situational. Cancel, Faerie Trickery, Dissipate, Ixidor's Will, Dream Fracture, Vex, or Thassa's Rebuff.

You have some instant speed bounce spells, but there are some better ones that you might consider running. While they may be more expensive mana-wise, they provide more effects. Capsize, Wipe Away, Temporal Adept, and Surgespanner.

Let's get back to talking about protection from things. Except now we'll talk about certain situations that are rather hard to escape from unharmed. First and foremost, find a spot for Willbender and Voidmage Apprentice. These two are non-negotiable. If you are playing mono-blue, you must have these cards. Voidmage Apprentice is one of the very few ways to successfully stop a spell with split second because morphing doesn't use the stack. In addition, you would be screwed if someone played a Supreme Verdict or something that can't be countered, because you only have one card to handle it and that is Time Stop. Throw in a Mindbreak Trap. It can easily exile un-counterable spells off the stack. Misdirection is another great card that not many people are expecting. Voidmage Husher is also great to stop cards like Oblivion Stone or Perilous Vault.

Something to note: If you're playing Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, you must play Knowledge Pool as well as those two together make one of the hardest lock downs known to Magic.

As for enchantments, Mind Over Matter is great. Intruder Alarm is also great. It combos off with many of your creatures that tap for things, and for your commander's ability as well. Future Sight would be good. It adds additional "card draw". Leyline of Anticipation of course, because who plays things on their own turn?

I don't know if you're on a budget or not, but Palinchron is a much better choice than Great Whale. Exact same card, but with the added protection of being able to bounce itself. So, you technically don't even need a Deadeye Navigator if you have Palinchron and the right lands.

Speaking of lands, I notice you don't have a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. In any mono-colored deck, this card is a must. Get one. It combos really well with Great Whale/Palinchron.

Anyways! I know it's a lot but that's all I have for right now. Hopefully it will lead you in the direction you're looking to go. :) Any questions, comments, complaints, concerns, or thoughts, feel free to let me know and just tag me in your comment so I don't miss it.
