Definitely need more non-creatures spells. Removal and counterspells are a great idea. Also, maybe 1-2 Fuel for the Cause. The cmc is a little high, but you can get an extra counter on all your creatures with Proliferate cards. Some protection can also help to keep your creatures alive. Spellskite, Monastery Siege(Dragons), etc.

Thank you for your suggestions! Boardwipes are indeed a big problem for this deck, but I do have a few indestructible creatures, and I feel that it won't be that big of an issue. My friend group I play with doesn't really use too many boardwipes. I did put in Monastery Siege, though.

This looks pretty cool! the only thing that i see that would be the bane of thise deck would be Supreme Verdict...i might suggest cutting out some walls to make room for more counterspells for save you against Mutilate/Damnation or Cyclonic Rift effects....Muddle the Mixture is a good counter or tutor ..... perhaps some draw engines could be helpful too like Monastery Siege/Rhystic Study/Staff of Nin could help speed things up/find needed peieces? +1 from me

Icbrgr on Azorious/Dimir Deck Help

@FrostySentinel nothing wrong with playing on a budget... they dont call this game cardboard crack for nothing...ive spent so much money on shoeboxes of card over the past few years :p ... Divination is ok but not the best choice for a 3cmc sorcery speed spell... i find more value in something like Monastery Siege for that effect personally... if you want i can post a few azorious control & turbofog decks i have built on your wall for a brewing ideas/inspiration or just add me as a friend and i will gladly help ya build in private message... honestly my decks usually have a 100-200 price tag on them for MODERN azorious control types but i can help poke around for viable budget alternatives

Icbrgr on It's just an illusion, so why are you seeing this?

3 weeks ago

Spellskite seems like a pretty good idea.. i also run illusions in real life and i never thought of that (you can check out my primer on my page if ya want).... some things i run differently from you is Monastery Siege the option of having the draw or stave off targeting spells comes in handy and Muddle the Mixture is good for tutoring you Lord of the Unreal and others. personally im not a fan of Illusionary Servant have you considered Illusory Angel or Halcyon Glaze?

as far as splashing thats new territory for me though and good luck fellow Illusionist!

Triton on Been working on a budget ...

Darreti, Scrap Savant, Trash for Treasure, and Scrap Mastery all have welding effects.

Getting artifacts in grave from hand is relatively easy, looting effects such as Faithless Looting, Izzet Charm, Careful Study, Monastery Siege, and Thirst for Knowledge.

I think the only tutor for noncreature artifacts from deck to grave is Entomb, which I don't think is within your budget. There's also Buried Alive, but it works with only artifact creatures. Also potentially Gamble.

Hope this helps!

Fauna Shaman, Survival of the Fittest, Buried Alive and Intuition are pretty much MUST HAVES for this type of deck.

Rune-Scarred Demon, Acidic Slime, Terastodon, Woodfall Primus, Duplicant and Eternal Witness are good ETB triggers.

Hermit Druid and Mirror-Mad Phantasm can easily get a lot of cards in your graveyard.

I like running Monastery Siege, Ancient Excavation, Compulsive Research, Forbidden Alchemy, Frantic Search, and Thirst for Knowledge for draw/discarding

would also recommend running a Homeward Path in case people steal your stuff from your graveyard.

Sheoldred, Whispering One, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger are powerful cards on their own.

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Spinebiter and Putrefax can be extremely deadly.

I would also recommend adding in a few more board wipes, specifically Life's Finale.

If you need more suggestions, this is the deck that i made for the mimeoplasm
