Creature — Salamander
: Adapt 4. This ability costs less to activate for each instant and sorcery card in your graveyard. (If this creature has no +1/+1 counters on it, put four +1/+1 counters on it.)

Urza, Lord High Artificer has soooo many possibilities in eggs or the thopter sword deck (infinite life and creatrues is awesome).
mono Black aggro/ midrange has legs now, Force of Despair is nuts
blazing chant will probably make it's own archetype but it definitely slots right into storm
Goblin engineer looks like Stoneforge Mystic to except there's probably some loop we can establish like a new KCI ish deck
I love tortex in pauper so Spore Frog gets my mind going
and we just got Squirrel Nest so hopefully squirrels could be a thing X)
I haven't seen anything that will give us a new combo deck other than maybe urza but man this set is solid and where only three days in!

Although not as powerful as it once was Pteramander still works great in these type of decks.

Hey, really well made Commander deck, but it's only 94 cards :)
Thalakos Seer is quite good with Ninjutsu, getting value with Yuriko. Ninja of the Deep Hours , Higure, the Still Wind and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are good Ninjas, worth playing with Yuriko. Higure is great with Arcane Adaptation because then it can tutor for any creature in your library since all creatures are considered Ninjas.
All the low mana cost unblockable creatures and flying creatures are good to get a fast Yuriko onto the battlefield. Unblockable: Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker , Mist-Cloaked Herald , Gudul Lurker , Dimir Infiltrator , Tormented Soul . Flying: Mausoleum Wanderer , Pteramander , Jace's Phantasm . Thada Adel, Acquisitor has a good ability for multiplayer Commander since most opponents decks have artifacts. Fabricate or Trinket Mage are worth playing just to tutor for Top. Good luck with your deck.

I've made tons of other mono blue lists but always come back to this one. Pteramander is also decent in mono blue.

Froghog90, thanks for the comment and the upvote! My thought process was that since we run only 17 lands and Light Up the Stage , snapcaster loses value. You generally want to be operating on around 3 lands for the whole game, so having multiple snapcasters can clog up our hand. During play testing, cards like Pteramander and Monastery Swiftspear have been true all-stars because they benefit off of chaining cantrips and burn spells which we can't do as effectively if we were playing more snapcasters. Depending on what gets released in modern horizons, I'd like to remake this deck with a more reactive/tempo style game plan with 4 snaps, mana leaks, etc.

Main goal of the deck is to get an easy combo off of Ral, something like:
Ral, Storm Conduit is in play. Cast an Opt and hold priority, cast an Expansion / Explosion and copy the Opt , then hold priority again and cast another Expansion / Explosion . Use the 2 Expansion / Explosion s to keep copying each other, then you win the game. Including Arclight Phoenix s and Pteramander s as additional threats. Let me know your suggestions!

Aight, I'm going to give you my imput on budget deckbuilding- you need to pick one thing and do it well. Since the most generalist options are off the table you need to identify a set of cards that work well together and don't break the bank.
For tempo, this means 1 drops that can put out the damage, and 2/3 drops that keep you alive so that damage gets there. Geist is intended to make the control matchup playable, by providing a hard to remove clock- a slot dragonlord is also competing for.
For value, this means resilient threats and spells that trade well. Resto/wall/reflector/flickerwisp does a lot- U/W blink decks which have fallen out of favour will have a lot of tools to tinker with. It doesn't match what you have described wanting to do.
Your spell selection seems good for Delver, so I'll focus in on that.
Switching your less aggressive creatures to these will offer a lot.
Next up, the other important part of budget deckbuilding- Sideboard. You have another fifteen cards- a sideboard that works well is the difference between a bad deck and one that crushes your local meta. Notable options include Judge's Familiar / Cursecatcher & Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip in addition to the usual modern staples.
U/W is very versatile, but it likes to keep mana up for counterspells. This means end of turn effects, instant speed spells and creatures, and 1 drops are really, really good compared to everything else in the colours.
