Remove Soul Discussion
4 months ago
I put in Remove Soul only recently, but since it's here you make a fair point. I guess I could put in Essence Scatter taking out a non-creature counterspell like Spell Pierce or Negate if the meta I play in gets too crowded with creatures. Thanks for the suggestion!

You would just take out your least relevant stax piece. If those decks aren't reanimator decks then graveyard hate like Tormod's Crypt can probably be replaced with a pongify, or (if there really are a lot of creature decks) Remove Soul.
Static Orb hurts our deck a fair bit so I wouldn't run it, however Tangle Wire is really good if the decks you play against don't go wide.

well maybe you included Battlefield Thaumaturge for a mistake. he doesnt reduce the cost of your counters.the key word "creture" is different from "creature spell". "creature" refers to a permanent, "creature spell" refers to a creature card which is in the stack, but not a permanent already (see Remove Soul). By the way. you should include some kind of removal (Pongify and others), since heavily played cards like Cavern of Souls, Dragonlord Dromoka, Prowling Serpopard, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Surrak Dragonclaw, Vexing Shusher etc..make your deck powerless. and 29 lands are too few =)

You've got a lot of 3 CMC cards, especially your counterspells. I'd split the Dissolves to have two each of Negate and Essence Scatter / Remove Soul. Maybe even Mana Leak You can then sideboard whichever ones depending on the deck you're up against.
If you're looking to splash just a little bit of black, you can get some really powerful cards like Mind Funeral and Consuming Aberration. Perhaps even Glimpse the Unthinkable if you've got the budget. And if you're keeping with the defender theme, Phenax, God of Deception works wonders.

Mercurial Geists will work better for you than Curator of Mysteries drop Cryptic Serpent for 2 Sphinx of the Final Word toss in some counterspells for the sideboard like Negate and Remove Soul. Glimmer of Genius is much stronger for your deck than Hieroglyphic Illumination but since you are running Fevered Visions you may want to cut down on the draw and put in 2 more copies and run more bounce effects like Baral's Expertise and Select for Inspection. Your deck is far from bad, but it looks like you are trying to go 2 different directions. If you want to win with creatures, run more prowess and pump spells. If you want to control the board run the 4 Fevered Visions with some burn and bounce effects. In either case a few Turn Aside will protect your stuff from removal and be worthy of main deck inclusion. Dont forget Rise from the Tides either. It is a game ender and if you wait long enough to cast you can keep up mana for a counter to protect your army. Summary Dismissal and Unsubstantiate are both very useful as well since they don't counter. Good luck

A few things, firstly Torrent Elemental is not allowed in this deck. Because it has black and green mana symbols in its effect text, it is considered to be a black/blue/green creature by commander color identity rules.
Next, this deck could due to be a bit more focused. I understand that its themes are spread out to showcase blues abilities, but I feel like your friend would be served if it showed what a concrete theme was. Also some of these card choices are just a bit too weak even for a budget build, namely Mana Leak, Card:Ceremonious Rejection, Dispel, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, and Looter il-Kor. While some of these may be fine card, I don't think they are well suited to this format or just this deck.
Baral really wants to counter spells so you guys could try Guile and a budget friendly counter package that includes Remove Soul, Arcane Denial, Disdainful Stroke, Broken Concentration, and Counterspell.
