Saw the link and request for budget suggestions. I haven't played Melek but I am currently playing Mizzix of the Izmagnus and used to play Keranos, God of Storms. I'm a fan or UR all-around. The suggestions below are fairly generic since I'm unsure of how you want to win. Suggestions are based around cards I've used before in 60-card formats or in EDH with the previously mentioned legendaries, and should be under $5 each.

These are some to think about but pricy: Monastery Mentor Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

These are two early game plays that would be STRONG: Primal Amulet  Flip Baral, Chief of Compliance

This is a really good second extra turn spell Nexus of Fate

I get what you're saying, and yes that's how I generally figure this stuff out as well. The Primal Amulet  Flip is in there for its flipside, which I feel like I can get to pretty easily. It comes up regularly in my Constructed cascade deck a lot, and at most it takes until the turn after I cast it to flip. That deck has a lower percentage of instants/sorceries than this one. However, that deck plays different than this one, obviously, and, more importantly, I've actually played it. This one is still in the concept stage, and I still need to acquire a few of the cards in it. So we'll see.

TolarianScientist, your concern is real. At the moment, I'm running 16 spells which deal with that concern:

For a hot second, I also had Atzocan Seer on the list, but dropped it in favor of including more offense as a tradeoff for losing mana production (I removed it for Knight of New Alara).

The problem with mana dorks is that none of the best ones are color pairs. With any other 5-color commander, this decklist would look totally different.

I like your suggestion of borderposts. Right now, the Spells I'd most consider removing are Merfolk Skydiver, Rise of the Hobgoblins, Deathbringer Liege, Terminate and Dovin, Grand Arbiter. Of those spells, how many and which would you replace with borderposts of the same colors?

Sorry for the long response.

I have a few suggestions, if you're interested:

  1. Your rocks could use improvement. I've never been a fan of Primal Amulet  Flip, if only because it's 4 mana and needs time to flip. You'd probably be better off running something like Talisman of Progress or even just Fellwar Stone. My inclination would be to run a bunch of two-drop rocks, since they'll let you cast your general turn three.

  2. Urza-block 'free spells' might be worth considering... casting Snap or Frantic Search off rebound still untaps lands, so it's sort of like a build-your-own ritual effect.

  3. Treasure Cruise is similar to Dig Through Time as it's a card-advantage engine that probably feel good to cast off rebound. Is also super-triggers Dovescape.

  4. Ponder and Preordain are definitely worth running in addition to your Brainstorm.

You can probably lower the amount of lands to 36 or 37, probably 36 since most of your deck is pretty low mana cost wise. Then you can add in some cards like Mind Stone , Hedron Archive , and maybe Primal Amulet  Flip to give your spells some added bonus.

NV_1980 Thank you for the input.

I recently pulled Path to Exile to make room for Thassa's Oracle. Felt the rest of the removal and counters were sufficient and wanted Oracle in for another win con.

As for Vampiric Tutor, I haven't put it in because I currently do not own a copy. I'd like to replace Eladamri's Call with it at some point.

Also thinking of replacing Windfall with Primal Amulet  Flip. With this being a combo driven deck, more often than not Windfall winds up just being a dead card in my hand when I don't want to lose my pieces. I think Amulet would work very well with the number of instants/sorceries in the deck.

Thank you for the compliment. I'd be glad to look over some of your decks and leave feedback.
