Graceful Adept Discussion
3 weeks ago
Spellbook does only one thing that has no extra effect with multiples in play. The Journal, Reliq Tower and Library should be enough on that front. Graceful Adept as a creature is too fragile for just this effect.
Alabaster Leech is just a free blocker to a non-white deck. Seems narrow enough that it could be cut. Sapphire Leech is sort of in the same boat but blue typically gets played more than white so if you keep one, keep the blue one. I'd personally cut both.
Drogskol Reaver seems a bit out of place here. Your commander should be drawing you more than enough cards plus gaining enough life and you won't often be winning through combat damage.
Spawnbroker seems the worst of this kind of effect so trim and just keep the better versions. Daring Thief could use some support to use reliably; Holdout Settlement , Cultivator's Caravan / Smuggler's Copter [or any other vehicle that it could crew].
My understanding is that a lot of people hate playing against Thieves' Auction as it really drags out a game and can be frustrating if it keeps getting played game after game so maybe cut to preserve your playgroup. Scrambleverse could fall into this category as well. I'd leave Possibility Storm though if you really want this kind of 'chaos' effect in the deck.
Its not 19 cuts but some suggestions that could help you make some decisions on what you really want to have stay.

I think the deck could use 1 or 2 removal spells for some threats, and it would help a lot to have Reliquary Tower, Graceful Adept, or Library of Leng, they're not too pricey and I think they could help a fair bit with not having too many cards in hand, kind of like what Spellbook is doing.

I really like the concept of the deck, however I think that you have a lot of cards which don't add much value to the strategy.
For cards you could easily cut:
Iona, Shield of Emeria, Cloudshift, Essence Flux, Graceful Adept, Sen Triplets, Greed, Leyline of Anticipation, Near-Death Experience, Paradox Haze, Bond of Agony, Enduring Ideal, Sanguimancy, Temporal Extortion, Conjurer's Closet, Phyrexian Processor, Spellbook, Vedalken Orrery and Carrion Howler. You also have too many lands, you could easily go down to 36 and be fine.
As for cards I would add to the deck:
Unspeakable Symbol is an amazing card, it provides the deck with instant speed life loss, but also provides you a win condition in the form of commander damage from Zur. On top of this it can be tutored by him.
Spirit Mantle lets Zur connect, allowing you those sweet tutors.
Soul Channeling is another effect that lets you pay life that is tutorable by Zur. It's not great but it's still ebtter than some of the life loss effect you're running.
Counterspells! the best way to protect your stuff (since you have to go a round once you've tutored your combo), you need much more in the way of counterspells to protect your pieces. Counterspell, Swan Song, Mana Drain (if it's in your price range), Delay, Negate, Arcane Denial, Pact of Negation, these are all good examples of counterspells you should be running. On top of this you should run removal, especially stuff like Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, Disenchant, etc. as well as Grasp of Fate and Detention Sphere. There's also Seal of Cleansing and Aura of Silence.
Ramp! You don't have very much in the way of ramp/fixing. I would recommend finding space for Dimir Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Azorius Signet, Talisman of Progress, Orzhov Signet, and depending on your budget, Mana Crypt and Mox Diamond. Dark Ritual is another good burst of mana as well.
Savor the Moment is a card you could use to get to your next turn (to jumpstart your combo) if you wanted to.
And if you're concerned about discarding to handsize, Reliquary Tower and Library of Leng between the two should be enough. But for the most part you don't really card, just sculpt your best 7 and go from there.
Hopefully this'll help streamline the deck.

Enter the Infinite could be a good win con. And to make sure you dont discard every card you draw add some infinite hand size cards like Library of Leng, Thought Vessel, Reliquary Tower are all a must have in your deck but even Nezahal, Primal Tide, Graceful Adept, Spellbook, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, and Venser's Journal could help out

cool concept but was wondering why you didnt go for U/B mill has it is clearly superior? I dont really understand the green splash
add list: Manic Scribe extra mill, Archive Trap extra mill 2, Mesmeric Orb GOOD MILL, Visions of Beyond 1 mana drawn 3 is unfair. maybe go for more control to mill? because in your current list agro destroy you card like Profane Memento are pretty cute but Echoing Truth Spell Pierce and Unsummon are more consistent. To replace Brainstorm go for Serum Visions or Opt or Sleight of Hand for sideboard Natural State is a staple in most green deck Fog could be usefull too
remove list: man.. you love having no maximum hand size lol but seriously Spellbook, Graceful Adept are awfull card, Meloku the Clouded Mirror is 5 mana that's a lot for a 2/4 flyer that bounce your own land
if your interested in a U/B mill deck ub mill
