Steam Augury and Jace's Ingeniuty are both not that good.
Try out Omenspeaker or something similar. The biggest weakness you have is that you'll be crushed by decks which go very fast. You'll be dead by turn 4 before you even get to do anything.
I made a Orzhov deck and a Golgari deck designed to fight each other, but only in terms of gameplay.
However, recenty for a friend )to teach her how to play hopefully), I built a Red/Blue dragon deck with the subtheme of prophecy (like, prophesizing a fiery disaster at the hands of dragons). So it has Omenspeaker , Traumatic Visions and Sigiled Skink for the premonition theme, it has some smaller winged reptiles like Dragon Whelp and Azure Drake before hitting the big dragons.
A great idea for a deck is to dream up an environment (like a murky, swampy wood) and then make a singleton deck of creatures ad spells that you might find in said environment. IRather than focus on playability, focus on worldbuilding: your deck may put across its image with a single Bog Wraith , Kessig Recluse , Drown in Filth , Mire Blight , et cetera. See how the cards together form a picture of a place?
Jace, Memory Adept is not post rotation. You might want to look into another Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver or another Liliana Vess for a planeswalker spot. Your creatures don't seem to hold consistency with all of the "2 of's". You might want to add in another Wall of Frost or another Sigiled Starfish . Also, Omenspeaker wouldn't be a bad option for this deck. If you also replaced Countermand with Dissolve , your CMC would go down a bit, and you could set yourself up better from the scry. Countermand just seems too high costing for it's ability. Use your creatures and planeswalkers to do the heavy lifting. Just some thoughts.
Hello. It's me again.
I think you should go for Liliana Vess because she gives you more control by creating card advantage and her -2 ability allows you to tutor a card you want at the moment - or, like Empty the Pits , spells you don't want to draw until you want to cast them(that's why i suggest running single copy of this spell).
You shouldn't run Murderous Cut . It's 2 mana more expensive than Hero's Downfall and can't target Planeswalkers. Delve works well with Sultai's self-mill mechanics but without it Murderous Cut will be just overpriced creature removal.
Negate is second greatest anti control spell you have access to. I would run 4 copies without a question. You really should consider adding them at least to your sideboard.
Clever Impersonator is just sickly awesome. You can copy with him your opponents Planeswalkers. He's gonna see tournament play for sure. Think about it.
About number of AEtherspouts ... 2 copies may be not enough. Depends of meta. I would add 3rd copy to sideboard.
From new cards Despise looks playable.
I guess you will not change your mind about Swan Song no matter what we'll say?
Unless you're going to mill, you need Prognostic Sphinx . At least 3. Way too much delve to have consistent effectiveness considering you'll have exiled so many cards. Generally a play set of Hero's Downfall are included for versatility. I don't think you need the Dissipate . I think 2 AEtherspouts would be plenty. Swan song is like two for one(ing) yourself. Sideboard Omenspeaker and mainboard some Drown in Sorrow and Bile Blight . Remember that high cost cards are cool, but as a control deck you have to make it past turn 5. Entropyan Had some good suggestions also.
I like Omenspeaker because he can do damage, but I love Sigiled Starfish because if your opponent attacks with something big, you can block, then tap for scry and take no damage. If Flamespeaker has summoning sickness, then he also makes him a useful blocker. I agree on Sigiled Skink . He hasn't been too useful. I can't afford another Thassa, God of the Sea or the scry lands in general right now, so if I draw some maybe, but for now, the UR lifegain lands from Khans and one Thassa will have to do. Anger of the Gods would be great if it weren't a $2 card for no apparent reason. Everything else sounds great, and I'll tinker around a bit to get it right. Thanks, man. Also, how do you feel about Stormchaser Chimera ?
Vexing Devil isn't really necessary.
Howl of the Horde + Howl of the Horde + Lightning Bolt with single Goblin Electromancer on your board costs 5 mana (1R + 1R + R) and i don't think this combo is playable. You need 4 cards, 5 mana and leaves you open to counterspells - too slow, too hard to drop. Dispel would help. Going for Howl of the Horde + Lightning Bolt with mana open for Dispel would be safer and possible but keep in mind you have only 7 creatures to activate Raid. I would not rely on this combo.
Divination is superior than other two because it can save from missing a 4th land drop. And i think you should increase land base to 23 or 24.
Eidolon of the Great Revel will also hit you. Do not kill yourself.
Why would you say that? I have found that the Omenspeaker s sift through my deck to hep me get rid of any cards i can't use later in the game. Or it lets me keep a hand I might not have kept had I not had it in my hand. And while yes beatdown is good, sometimes all I need is a little more help in the midgame.
