Too many bodies. The ninja core is Yuriko, Strix, Changeling Outcast and Ingenious Infiltrator. That is what every deck plays at least 3-4 copies of each. Then it depends on what else you run.

If you want to run Retrofitter Foundry you run Ornithopter and 4 copies of Outcast to turn into 4/4s. If you want to run more generic good stuff you splash green and snowlands and consider playing Oko and Icefang and Assassins Trophy/Abrupt Decay. You might consider Brazen Borrower. Either way a lower creature count benefits you.

For lands you want 16-18. 16 if you are going lower to ground tempo. 18 if you want snow and Oko. Duals help but you don't need them. What you really need tho is Fetchlands.

Fetch Lands give you access to Brainstorm, Preordain and Fatal Push. They also let you run more basics so you can make sure Daze is live more often which you max out on. Maxing Force is good too.

Standstill sadly isnt good enough anymore. Its time has passed. Given how the decks that may of once played it now have access to 1 mana and 2 mana draw 2s with less downside it just has been meta and power creeped out. Of One Mind might do you better as human and non human is easy to pull off.

ImaginitiveRascal- Thanks for the suggestions!
Unfortunately, the scry-first spells Preordain and Ponder, are not modern legal. My playgroup keeps everything modern casual/competitive, to keep away from the cookie cutter competitive modern meta.

However, you've given me an idea for another suggestion and game finisher, Visions of Beyond.

Thanks again and play hard!!

so, I'm not really sure what this format is but a few cards that can be considered are Fatal Push, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Delay, Counterspell, Serum Visions, Preordain, and Brainstorm. These are all generically good cards and should help you do your game plan with ease.

Mystic Remora, Trail of Evidence and Legacy's Allure would be excellent includes.

Ancient Tomb, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Scalding Tarn, Misty Rainforest, Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs, Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand and Snow-Covered Islands would all bolster consistency and give you a tad more ramp/attrition - though all of this comes in at a few morgage payments unless your group lets you proxy.

Mana Drain, Force of Will, Force of Negation and Delay are all ridiculous counter spells. On the more budget end of things Miscast and Spell Pierce can make do in a pinch

Preordain, Brainstorm, and Opt may not look like much but they all drastically increase consistency without breaking the bank.

Now, personally I love Narset, Parter of Veils with Windfall but that's too oppressive for some play groups - play at your own risk

Gilded Drake - for the cost of a used Nintendo switch you can make commander dependent decks salty and sad every time :)

Winter Orb, Static Orb and Storage Matrix are very dumb with urza and I advise you only play this if your friends are cool with this type of degenerate stuff.

Anyways, hope that helped some :)

Klapp on Budget Mizzix Storm [~$100 Competitive EDH]

Hi Nawg, im not as qualified to talk about this deck as p0megranates, but here's my two cents from playing this deck since April:

Preordain <- See Beyond, one less mana for basically the same effect.

Serum Visions is very similar, I could see it being slotted in the place of Careful Study, or if you really value the discard, which I haven't found to be super useful, you can remove Opt.

Cyclonic Rift can be slotted in place of any of the bounce spells and I don't find myself kicking Blink of an Eye all that much so that would be my suggestion.

Gamble and Intuition are a bit harder to recommend a 1x1 exchange of cards, as both of them would really like you to also run Underworld Breach (note that Intuition is already super busted on its own), so I'd suggest putting Breach in as well. I Suggest removing Thought Scour, Reality Spasm, and Pirate's Pillage. My reasoning for these choices is that I believe they are cards that don't really perform very well on the deck and can be taken out for this package. Pirate's Pillage nets you 1 mana when you have Mizzix out and that's very nice, but if you got Mizzix out with 3 counters already you're very much on your way to winning the game, while on other situations this card doensn't feel very nice, especially if it is countered. Reality Spasm also nets you mana, but you need Mizzix out with 3+ counters for that and if that's the case you can probably search your Turnabout. Thought Scour just wasn't doing enough for me, messing up a tutor now and then is nice, but most of the time I just wish I could have used this 1 mana for something else.

Flusterstorm and Force of Will can be used in place of what you identify as the two worst counterspells on the current list. Possibly Miscast and Mystical Dispute.

Rhystic Study can take the place of any card draw that is lackluster. You can take out Pieces of the Puzzle, which is not instant speed.

Lastly a couple of notes on Underworld Breach and Intuition:

Underworld Breach wins you the game with Bonus Round and Frantic Search. Cast Bonus Round and then Frantic Search, with your floating mana cast Breach and the Frantic Search from the grave. Each cast will net you 1 mana and 1 extra card in the grave, envetually you'll find Reiterate and Seething Song, generate infinite mana returning Reiterate to your hand with buyback and mill everyone with Stroke of Genius or whatever. As p0megranates eloquently explains on the guide, once you get to this point winning the game is easy.

For Intuition you'll probably want to check the deck to see if there is a 3 card pile that wins you the game, as of right now I don't think so. But adding Mizzix's Mastery enables the following pile:Mizzix's Mastery, Past in Flames, Enter the Infinite.

If they give you Mizzix's Mastery cast it without overload for Enter the Infinite and win from there.

If they give you Past in Flames cast it, flashback Mizzix's Mastery for Enter the Infinite.

If they give you Enter the Infinite, flashback Past in Flames, flashback Intuition searching Faithless Looting or Frantic Search or any discard outlet. Discard Enter the Infinite and flashback Mizzix's Mastery for Enter the Infinite.

I think running Hieroglyphic Illumination or Serum Visions instead of Of One Mind and Preordain instead of Brainstorm would just be better.
