Lonely Sandbar Discussion

There is a simple (and cheap money-wise) infinite combo: Niv-Mizzet, Parun/Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity/Ophidian Eye/Tandem Lookout + any draw. Draw, then deal 1 damage with Niv-Mizzet, then draw, then deal 1 damage, then draw, then... to kill all your opponents. // Maybe you should run more ways to guarantee you can cast your commander: Swiftwater Cliffs, Izzet Boilerworks, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Command Tower, Shivan Reef, Wandering Fumarole, Temple of Epiphany, Myriad Landscape, Lonely Sandbar, Forgotten Cave (they can uncounterably start the infinite combo with the cycling abitily), Izzet Signet, Gilded Lotus, Darksteel Ingot, Izzet Cluestone, Commander's Sphere (they can also start the infinite combo right away).

There are some changes / additions i would make though;
- Add some Counterspells, Swan Song and Counterspell are a must if you play blue.
- Replace Niv's disc with Oblivion Stone, just put the counter on Muldrotha and lock the board down!
- I found the 1 mana cycle lands very useful since you can play them back with muldrotha! Lonely Sandbar, Tranquil Thicket and Barren Moor

I'm playing a really similar X deck (Canonically, X put Pheobe into the head of S.N.E.A.K. with no apparent motives, but that's besides the point), except it seems like my deck relies more on stealing rather than disguises. Your manabase could use a bit of work for one, Lonely Sandbar / Barren Moor is always resourceful late-game, and Sand Silos / Peat Bog are insanely useful early on and ramp you up really well. I don't have too many suggestions because I like Control/Abduction rather than Copy/Shapeshifter, but I would like to add that playing as many fun artifacts as you can is immensely fun. I've got a Magistrate's Scepter, Transmogrifying Wand and Everflowing Chalice, and they really add a layer of spice. My recommendation has to be Tamiyo's Journal in terms of artifacts, because of it's powerful Draw advantage and Tutoring abilities. It may be slow, but it can turn the tides of a game.

Heyo. First of all, this looks like what I call a "mulligan deck," meaning your opening hand is gonna be very important, so get used to mulligan'ing until you get a good starting 7. Beyond that, Putrid Imp may be better as four-of because if you can get it out, it is free discard whenever you want. Also, Lotus Petal is probably better in that slot than Wild Cantor, but Lotus Petal is "expensive." Finally, the cycling lands, like Lonely Sandbar, Barren Moor and Forgotten Cave, might be really good in this deck, because you can play them in an emergency, otherwise you cantrip/fill your graveyard with them.
In addition, here is a page a I found with a small Primer for Pauper Exhume decks: link.

You could play some of the cycle lands (Barren Moor, Tranquil Thicket, Lonely Sandbar) for some "free" cycle cards. Also, I think you should go up on the Cunning Survivor/Grisly Survivors so you have the max number of payoffs. Oona's Grace is the slowest and costliest card you're playing, plus it's not very good in multiples, so I'd cut a couple of that.

So, first of all - sensible colour choice for an early EDH deck. Sticking to two makes for a pretty easy and cheap land base, though I'd suggest ditching the Vivid two and maybe Exotic Orchard for those that either straight up make Black/Blue or have more utility. Cycling is always good in Commander for avoiding late-game mana flooding so perhaps check out Lonely Sandbar/Remote Isle/Desert of the Mindful and their black equivalents plus Fetid Pools.
While at the moment you're obviously working with the cards you've got from the wizard precon the next thing is to decide what direction you want to go in. Your options are pretty broad at the moment and the deck could easily go into mill, control, curses, zombies, or unblockable creatures plus cipher cards like Stolen Identity for a more versatile Clone Legion. If Tiagam is going to be central to your gameplan it might also be worthwhile thinking about how to give him stuff like hexproof, shroud or indestructible. See my notes in There's Something Strange.... Plus you can always look for similar decks on here and/or tick the "Needs Help" box and the excellent people on here can give you some advice.
PS: to make someone your commander you need to put CMDR after their name on the deck list.

Personally, I'd cut the Price of Knowledge. The mana cost is too high, and you have too many benefits from them discarding down to their hand size (i.e. Raider's Wake, Liliana's Caress, Waste Not, and Geth's Grimoire). Your opponents having a larger hand means their more likely to have answers to what you play, which is the last thing you'd want.
The Lonely Sandbar and Desert of the Mindful don't look too great for your deck either. You're already a little shy on land, so you'll almost never cycle these, and coming in tapped makes them worse than just a normal island. There's also a few different multi-colored lands you could run in the deck (Dragonskull Summit, Sulfur Falls, etc.).
Other than that, this looks like an incredibly fun Nekusar deck. Just be careful, since you will be targeted for playing him. People tend to like drawing their cards without pain ;)

You have about the right amount of lands for a deck with an average mana curve. You have lots of high cost stuff, so your landbase is pretty good. However, the submerged boneyard and unknown shores dont seem to be doing anything, as your deck has only blue cards in it. I would reccomend switching those out for some more islands, or blue lands with abilities, like Faerie Conclave or maybe something like Lonely Sandbar. In the actual deck, you have a lot of decent cards, but no general theme to the deck and no win strategy other than to overwhelm them with creature. You did note that these are the only blue cards you have at your disposal, so im not sure how to change that, but you might want to get some cards that do the same thing for a lower mana cost. for example, instead of advanced hovergard or aven fisher, you might want something like Fog Bank for defense or Cloud of Faeries to replace them. Being able to play these cards two turns sooner than hoverguard and fisher will be better in the long run. Your spells seem pretty good, but a few of them are out of place, and i think you should add in another Rise from the Tides as that is your win condition. Roiling waters seems to be a bit too much mana, i would reccomend switching it for something like AEtherize as a mass boardwipe of their creatures when they attack you for much less mana. Again, as these are the only blue cards at your disposal, you probably wont be able to make these changes.
