Depends on what you want from me really.

Blightsteel, Thoughtseize would be some big stuff that I would love to trade for

Also Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, From Beyond, Silence, Alchemist's Refuge, Increasing Ambition, Ugin's Nexus

I think reshape is good. Honestly, there's nothing wrong with the higher mana tutors. I still get the same mileage from my Diabolic Tutor. Increasing Ambition seems to be a decent one as well. If this deck is "your baby," you can always get the more expensive ones later.

Another fun trick to consider: Sac an animated Spine of Ish Sah to Arcum, get an artifact, recast Spine. Works in a pinch for tutoring and removal.

I can totally see where you're coming from with the disk. I usually use it as a threat rather than activate it, but I also wait until all my permanents are indestructible. It would paint a hell of a target, so politics might come first before including it.

Sharuum...she's awesome. I can't really loop her, but she can save the day.

I can see the Closet working, it might be worth a test. Only thing I'm not sold on is that it's a dead card some of the time. I think you have just enough to make it worthwhile though.

Lastly, if you're on the artifact beatdown plan, Karn, Silver Golem is a must as a backup Sydri. Also a great blocker.

I think what this deck might need now is draw/search power...


Phyrexian Arena

Blue Sun's Zenith

Thirst for Knowledge

Artificer's Epiphany

Perplex/Muddle the Mixture (currently cmc 3 is your highest qty of spells)

Jace Beleren / Jace, the Mind Sculptor / Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip / (ie pick a Jace, any Jace)

Ob Nixilis Reignited

Narset Transcendent

Tezzeret the Seeker / Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas

Demonic Tutor/Increasing Ambition

Just take your pick XD You probably don't need to add ALL of them, though

I appreciate the input. Mind Funeral and Mind Grave would both be good additions. I had Diluvian Primordial in this deck for a while but I just never seemed to get anything cool out of my opponents' yards. I'll consider slipping it back in after a few more games. Sepulchral Primordial would be perfect though and I don't know why I don't have one in here already. I also agree that I need more tutors. The ones you suggested are on the higher end of my budget, but what do you think about Dark Petition or Increasing Ambition?

I'd recommend getting some tutors. Diabolic Tutor, Dark Petition, Increasing Ambition, etc. It'll help you get whatever you need.

Adding Black gives you access to one of my favourite commanders, in Kaalia of the Vast, though she's also solid in the 99.

It also gives you tutors to work with, and Tutors are the best thing ever in EDH, because they're essentially extra copies of your best cards: Diabolic Tutor, Dark Petition, Diabolic Revelation, and Increasing Ambition. At the top end for tutors you have Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and Diabolic Intent. Grim Tutor and Imperial Seal are worth mentioning, but not worth their costs ATM.

Adding Black give access to another colours worth of wraths: Decree of Pain, Toxic Deluge, Necromantic Selection and Plague Wind. You also get access to Damnation and Overwhelming Forces.

Adding another colour requires you to add a number of lands to fix your mana: Isolated Chapel, Dragonskull Summit, Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt, Smoldering Marsh, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Sulfurous Springs, Caves of Koilos, and Battlefield Forge. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers are some of the best cards for Black mana fixing.

Scrubland, Badlands, Bloodstained Mire, and Marsh Flats are the remaining Duals and on colour fetchlands.

I have a Kaalia deck that I admittedly threw together, but it's a pretty good idea for what the top end of this colour pattern would look like. Kaalia, Bammed up a Notch

Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are great ramp spells that I would consider. Deathreap Ritual is awesome card draw since it can trigger every turn.

Krosan Grip is awesome artifact and enchantment removal. Reclamation Sage is another nice option here as it leaves behind the body for sac fodder and if you have a sac engine + Meren with 3 counters you can blow something up each turn. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep the board nice and thin. Blood Artist loooooves things dying, but is pricey; Falkenrath Noble is a nice budget alternative.

Grave Pact is more redundancy with Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir. It's pricier than the others, but having multiples of this effect is amazing I've found. Being able to tutor these up is also really important. Sticking to budget: Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambition, Dark Petition. Rune-Scarred Demon is pricey, but is really nice if you recur him.

Take a look at my list, Meren of Clan Stax Stuff, if you'd to see how I've built out a budget list with Meren. Good luck!
