Rise from the Tides Discussion

I know this isn’t mill, but it is reliant on having a fat graveyard of instants and sorceries and gives you an alternate win condition. I did scan the comments and learned a lot about focusing on mill and how to multiply the effects nicely, but I always like a back up plan. Rise from the Tides. Just one of course, and maybe just in the sideboard. I’m working on a mono blue control deck of my own right now that has the lightest mill using Drowned Secrets to make all blue spells mill spells. I’m only running two because I want to focus on control more than mill. Also from Guilds of Ravnica, it’s a little heavy yeah but works as a counter and helps you not deck out as well: Devious Cover-Up. My deck is also hardcore budget. It’s only 35 bucks cause I’m super poor. Mission Briefing is another card I think will be neat for blue for a long time. I’m not that good at magic or anything though, just some thoughts. And a new favorite of mine, Curious Homunculus Flip. I don’t have him but Baral, Chief of Compliance does the same thing with card draw potential. He’s probably the better card considering he’s a five dollar card and the Homonculus is 24 cents.

So I have a deck with this exact same commander and combo's except a bit wider price range and its casual-competitive (it can go against comp decks but my goal with every game is to have fun not to win Ex: some games I could get a Doomsday off when im storming and floating mana and could win that way for sure but would rather Mind's Desire or something fun other times I turn 3 Doomsday) If your making it comp I would suggest forgetting about storm entirely except as an engine for combing. Don't put in cards that are good when your storming off put in cards that will enable you to dig asap into your combo's. Cards to drop in favor of ether more draw/ramp would be Capsize Fire Covenant Geistblast Rakdos Charm Supreme Will Rise from the Tides Spelltwine and Wizard's Retort

Focus on cutting down your cards to 100 first. From there test and revise, see which card is your weakest link. What card are you not happy to see and what card are you happy to see. Work backwards in terms of efficiency. What is your main storm combo? Your alternative?
Start with 36 lands, add in your main lines of winning, add in your back up line, than start adding pieces. The community here can help you as well but you have to know what you want to do. As for recommendation on cuts, here is a list that I see that is the weakest links.
Pyromancer's Goggles, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Archaeomancer, Rise from the Tides, Mystic Speculation, Mystic Retrieval, Mizzium Mortars, Invoke the Firemind, Infernal Plunge, Ignite Memories, Howl of the Horde, Empty the Warrens, Devastation Tide, Bribery, Blatant Thievery, Will Kenrith, Jaya Ballard, Jace's Sanctum, Metallurgic Summonings, Wild Ricochet, Opt, Insidious Will, Firemind's Foresight, Cryptic Command, Counterflux, Comet Storm
The above list is one of either things, it's too redundant, doesn't help your plan to storm, doesn't add any value, or it's too high cost on storm turns. Cut the cards first before thinking of swaps, if you keep on adding cards you won't be able to refine and get too clustered in deciding. Hope that helps.

There are a lot of ways you can improve the deck, but what is the way you want to win? On an additional note, I'm assuming your under a budget as well as I see a lot of these cards are from the most recent sets. I can provide a list for cheap staples that would improve the deck leaps and bounds.

Really, unless you can win instantly after casting Enter the Infinite (Lotus Petal into Rite of Flame into Desperate Ritual into Seething Song into Mana Crypt into Mana Vault into Sol Ring into Zealous Conscripts+Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, etc.) don't run it.
Leyline of Anticipation, Metallurgic Summonings, Omniscience, Stolen Strategy, Sunbird's Invocation, Swarm Intelligence, Mirari, Sentinel Tower, Swiftfoot Boots, Vedalken Orrery, Arcane Melee, Enhanced Surveillance, Jace's Sanctum, The Mirari Conjecture, Traumatize, Rise from the Tides, Crystal Shard, Expedition Map, Erratic Portal, Mana Cylix, Beacon Bolt, Stolen Identity, Laboratory Maniac, Melek, Izzet Paragon, Nivix Guildmage, Galvanoth, Echo Mage, Archaeomancer, Battle Hymn, and Fury Storm need to go, they don't do nearly enough.
Up next on the chopping board are every extra turn spell and every 'copy' effect, whether copying a creature/permanent or spell. It needs to go. Past in Flames is about all like that that is necessary. I feel Inner Fire is particularly bad... there are more cards to consider dropping think Jace's Sanctum, the Electromancer and Baral, but for now, their okay.
