Memory Lapse

Instant

Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, put it on top of its owner's library instead of into that player's graveyard.

Tips for your red-blue control Look at Rift Bolt for more burn instead of lightning strike, it is not bad but rift can be cheaper.

Also, Watch the professor's video on control, and don't be predictable.

For Sideboard

  • Negate 2, good for the control matchup

  • Essence Scatter 2, for creature or aggro decks

  • Unsummon 2, to bounce things that they pump

  • Abrade 3, for burn and to deal with artifacts, really good against Nathan

  • Anger of the Gods 2 to 4, board wipe good against me, Thomas, Lifegain, Andres's vampires, anything that goes wide

  • Memory Lapse 2 to 4, it is an annoying card to deal with card since you take away their draw step

  • Cryptic Command 2, its just that good

It's always nice to see another talrand user. The way Talrand is typically built is by maximizing your instants and sorcerries and minimizing your creature count. With Talrand in play, each instant or sorcery turns into a drake to do your bidding. As such, I would recommend AT MOST 10 creatures that's pushing it.

Your land count is a little low, I would go to at least 36 (if not 38).

I don't know what your budget is, but feel free to take a look at my deck Tisk Tisk Talrand for ideas of instants and sorcerries you could utilize.

Here are some budget options for now

Future Sight can help you dig through your deck (works well with Mystic Speculation)

Engulf the Shore is a great reset card. I would trade out your cycling lands for islands regardless as to whether or not you add this.

Twincast is useful utility

Telling Time, replaces itself and sets up your draws

Rewind "free" counterspell (works well with caged sun)

Muddle the Mixture is useful on it's own and can tutor for 12 cards in your card. Add it.

Misdirection make them think twice even if you're tapped out

Isochron Scepter IS A MUST

Speaking of the scepter, add a Memory Lapse to it to ruin's someone's life.

Dismiss - counterspell that replaces itself

Disdainful Stroke

Let me know if you have any questions or want more feedback.

I would cut Dig through Time, Faerie Trickery, Dissipate, Fact or Fiction, Fuel for the cause, Spell Swindle, Red Sun Zenith, As foretold, overburden, Propaganda. I would add these cards from your maybeboard- Counterflux, Foil, Spelljack, Mystic Speculation, Past in flames, and mystic remora. That leaves 4 spots open, I dont know if you got them but Rapid Hybridization and Pongify are pretty efficient in costs and utitility, the 3/3 Wont matter when your turning a problem into a monkey or lizard. The other 2 slots should probably be some cheaper counterspells, I like Delay Remand Memory Lapse Arcane Denial oh and Evacuation is one of my favorite ways to deal with boards.

Draw: Ponder Preordain Wheel of Fortune Rhystic Study Mystic Remora Serum Visions Impulse Mystical Tutor Rush of Knowledge Recurring Insight

Removal: Spell Pierce Memory Lapse Arcane Denial Dispel Delay Misdirection Mana Leak Ugin, the Spirit Dragon Cyclonic Rift

Mana Rocks: Lotus Petal Mana Vault Chrome Mox Coalition Relic Grim Monolith Basalt Monolith Mox Diamond Prismatic Lens Mana Crypt

The only creatures I see that I like are Ulamog the ceaseless hunger, artisan of kozilek, conduit of ruin, void winnower, stormtide leviathan, rift elemental, kederekt leviathan, it that betrays and the time counter dudes. You probably want more impactful giant things with ETB's preferably.

I love seeing another Talrand user. The deck looks pretty good. +1 from me. A few suggestions...

  1. Capsize Win condition that is very useful, especially late game.

  2. Force of Will and Mana Drain. You seem like you have a big budget

  3. Memory Lapse goes well with isochron scepter and is a hard counter for 2

  4. Misdirection and Pact of Negation because the blue player is still a threat even when he's tapped out ;)

  5. Muddle the Mixture as a nice counter. Can also be a tutor which is very useful in mono blue. Speaking of tutors, Mystical Tutor might be another option to consider

  6. Remand, Rewind, Swan Song. Telling Time, and Twincast are all nice options as well.

Your avg CMC seems a little bit high, so adding cheaper counter spells will allow you to counter something when it matters most.

  1. Blatant Thievery is a great card for multiplayer

  2. Temporal Manipulation and Time Warp are useful because you have talrand out, cast it, get a drake, do whatever, end the turn. Then have another turn to play a land (blue's way of ramping) and the drake you casted last turn with the extra turn can now attack.

  3. Back to Basics and Overburden help slow your opponents down (Note: overburden won't trigger on your tokens so thats good). Moreover, you have too many creatures for a talrand deck. I can recommend some options of what to take out (creatures and others) if you like.

  4. Speaking of creatures, while we don't want to have to many in the deck, some are worth their weight in gold such as Consecrated Sphinx, Snapcaster Mage (can be reused with Riptide Laboratory, which can also be used for talrand) and Torrential Gearhulk

  5. Ramp. There are a lot of options, some of which you already have. One I like in particular is Sky Diamond because it allows Talrand to come out on turn 3.

I don't know your budget/meta/competitive level but if you want more ideas, feel free to look at my deck Tisk Tisk Talrand.

I love seeing another Talrand user. +1 from me! How has your inclusion of Mox Diamond and Chrome Mox working for you? If you get them in your starting hand they seem great, otherwise, useless.

A couple suggestions...

Disallow - Very useful and versatile

Memory Lapse - With Isochron scepter ;)

Misdirection - Much better than it looks!

Rewind - Im assuming this build is multiplayer? If so, this is a must.

Blatant Thievery - I don't run any real "finishers" or "combos" in my deck. So this card usually helps seal the deal.

Overburden - SO USEFUL. Note: Does not affect tokens.

If you have some time, feel free to check out my competitive deck Tisk Tisk Talrand for some other ideas.

Cool deck! I would suggest The Chain Veil and cards like Jace, the Mind Sculptor or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon to go infinite with your commander as long as you can produce 6 mana off of 3 permanents. Also, a good counter spell suite is never a bad deal. You may look into Counterspell or Memory Lapse. Both are fairly inexpensive. Another one of my personal favorite blue cards is Chain of Vapor.

Good luck!
