HARDsofty on Suggestions of Cards for Budget ($50) Haktos Deck?

A cheap rare I use in Modern is Path of Bravery. If you want to be creative focused, then use that card. Some other enchantments to consider are Oblivion Ring and Journey to Nowhere for creature removal.

I would also recommend getting instants for buff support as well.

ZendikariWol Well, again putting Ugin, the Ineffable 's +1 on another card would be a good start. It allows white to go wide and not get blown out from removal. I would def keep this effect to one-off cards, probably instants and sorceries. Maybe an enchantment or planeswalker or something if it came at an appropriately high cost.

More effects like Mentor of the Meek and Inspiring Commander, but I doubt WOTC will actually do that. They're definitely never going to print IC because they didn't even design it.

Bag of Holding has some good ideas as well. I think this could be turned into a white specific artifact/enchantment.

Alms Collector is also a fun idea. It's taxing and can draw you cards. Maybe a few more cards like that, preferably at lower costs.

This might be a bit controversial, but I think white could play around with discard a little bit too. Perhaps a card like Oblivion Ring that makes opponents exile a card from their hand under the ring instead of a permanent.

Enchantment cards in your hand have "Cycling W".

I want a commander whose deck you want to fill to the brim with Oblivion Ring and the like.

I wanted to put in a clause that also gave it the ability to flicker itself, but there was too much text already and I didn't want to change what it had. You can already put in a countless number of flicker/blink effects and he gives you a reason to flicker him. He also synergizes with Adventures, with temporary and long-lasting exile effects (i.e. Furious Rise , Act on Impulse , escape mechanics, your creatures getting removed by things like Oblivion Ring and Chained to the Rocks , suspend, etc.)

Wildcard is still on the table, just wanted to share my thoughts

When Ostracism enters the battlefield, exile another target nonland permanent. Its owner gains life equal to its converted mana cost.

When Ostracism leaves the battlefield, return the exiled card to the battlefield under its owner's control.

It's Oblivion Ring mixed with Swords to Plowshares 's drawback. Also, the is good for devotion.

I'd like a Devotion based burn spell

Words of Wind while kind of rude might be useful too if you end up drawing an abundance of cards. Allows you to slow your opponents down while you bounce and replay enchantments for more bodies or bounce a token to keep your board. I'd recommend replacing Replenish with it. While Replenish is great its a nonbo with Rest in Peace and many of your enchantments provide value on cast/static not on etb which is where replenish shines. That said if you added more etb enchantments instead such as Oblivion Ring or Grasp of Fate then i'd take out Rest in Peace instead.

This is a good start! Here are a few suggestions.

  1. Make sure you run 38 lands. You mana curve is pretty high and your commander is expensive so you want to be playing lands every turn.

  2. Cards to remove: Altar of Dementia , Arcum's Astrolabe , Prying Blade , Ephemerate , Huatli's Spurring , Shake the Foundations , Fight with Fire , Strength of the Pack , Form of the Dinosaur , any of the weaker dinosaurs or non-dinosaur creatures.

  3. Consider adding removal/boardwipes like Fumigate , Swords to Plowshares , Oblivion Ring .

  4. More card draw Shamanic Revelation , Guardian Project are a couple off the top of my head.
