KongMing on Naban, Dean of Budgets, Sub35$

Galecaster Colossus can end games if you have a few Wizards out, especially since his ability works around summoning sickness. Getting infinite flickers with your Naru Meha combo means you can bounce all of your opponents' nonland permanents by tapping her when she comes out.

I find Pondering Mage to be a great add to Naban not just for his ability, but also for his 3/4 body, which is pretty big for a Wizard.

Maybe replace Sage's Dousing with Wizard's Retort ? It matches Naban's flavor, and is a guaranteed counterspell. The card advantage of Sage's Dousing is nice, but it doesn't make up for being able to counter a spell, no matter how much mana an opponent has.

Sphinx of Magosi is $ cheap and gives you great mid-to-lategame card advantage and buffable Flying body all on an activated ability that doesn't require tap. Yes please.

Swan Song is a good commander staple.

Arcane Denial is a good cantrip counterspell.

Deadeye Navigator could combo well with Archaeomancer and Spellseeker and Pondering Mage

InutilisVisEst: I've pre-ordered most of the cards I needed to make the update. There will be more trimming and streamlining since both sets provide a ton of new toys. I'm trying not to dabble much into planeswalkers as I already have a superfriends deck and wanna keep this as more of a etb-creature valuetown deck. Cards I'm looking at are:

I will be updating the list as soon as I'm done brainstorming and playtesting with the new cards.
