You are missing important card draw. You should consider Impulse, Frantic Search and Recurring Insight. Also Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time work well.

I agree with leven110 here, your deck needs a lot of mana. All of your big card draw uses X in their mana cost, so they'll be stuck in your hand for many many turns. Maybe add something a bit cheaper such as Recurring Insight? For consistency, Brainstorm, Ponder, and Preordain are all pretty amazing imho.

For a deck with that many spells with big costs, 35 lands is also pretty low, and you could probably comfortably go up to 38 to get your land drops more consistently. I would also personally definitely put in Rhystic Study if I could. Maybe also cut some countermagic? 14 is a lot, and considering you're very low on boardwipes (the only one I'm seeing is Cyclonic Rift), maybe switch a few counterspells for a red boardwipe?

As for the mana problem, Braid of Fire is pretty amazing with the X spells, and if you get it out early it'll help you out tons casting those big spells early.

Hope this helps :)

CrimsonKing: Fair enough. Recurring Insight has always proven itself in my meta, but I’ve been considering cutting Murder of Crows for a while. Might go in that slot, or perhaps Hurkyl's Recall?

Probably cut Recurring Insight. Trust me whir has won me so many games for just 4 or 5 mana. Getting your Isochron Scepter or Skullclamp out before your untap is extremely powerful.

Hey Bro I already upvoted your deck few months before, and I still love the fact, how much passion you put into that. I am not an EDH player but the flavor is awsome! In my point of view I would replace Recurring Insight with Mission Briefing. And what about Prosperity? In my point of view, Sorrow's Path would be great here in combination with Political Trickery. I mean Sorrow would definitely support your theme and is a very very punch in your face-card that creates a wtf-moment for your opponent. And it goes well with Opposition that you already use. Just wanted to inform you about this possibility. :D

  1. Sol Ring -> Azorius Keyrune: Taking out Sol Ring bc it's oppressive. Kind of a soft ban.
  2. Azorius Cluestone -> Ojutai Monument: Having a 4/4 dragon available is better than a single card draw when we have mana to burn.
  3. Mana Vault -> Basalt Monolith: moving towards 3 drop ramp to synergize with Trophy Mage.
  4. Auramancer -> Ironclad Slayer: Auramancer may technically have more targets, but the slayer hits our 3 hexproof/shroud equipment, which is more valuable than most of the non-aura enchantments. Plus Sun Titan gets many if not all of them back as well.
  5. Wingmate Roc -> Keeper of Keys: Roc conceptually has good value, but it relies on Raid. Keeper provides card draw as well as mass evasion for finishing.
  6. Ugin's Insight -> Recurring Insight: originally replaced with Trial of Knowledge and while that card is good, I wanted non-etb card draw effects in case of Torpor Orb or similar etb hate.

tembel on 1st ever EDH plz help

Improve your mana-fixing! Id suggest getting all the signets for your color combination. -Azorius, Simic, Dimir, Golgari, Orzhov. Fellwar Stone is also a good mana-rock for 4 coloured decks there is a land that does the same called Exotic Orchard. In general my rule of law in commander is that i want approximately 45 mana sources in a deck, of course depend on how mana hungry you deck is, lands count as a mana source and so does every ramp spell in your deck!. At the moment you are running 39 (that is including the prophetic prism which is more of mana fixing that mana source). You need to invest more in lands and in fixing; that is the drawback when constructing multi coloured decks. Try also to include more card draw spells as running out of gas is the worst thing that can happend in a EDH game :( If you are going the creature route with the deck some suggestions could be: Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Bident of Thassa but pure card draw could be Recurring Insight (it is a beast in edh). What type of carddraw depend on what type of deck you want to run.

On the plus side, all of my suggestions are on the inexpensive side there are alot more cards, try looking up suggestions on (can even find your commander there) and see how other people have constructed their decks.

Go big and go wild ^^
