Thank you for all the suggestions. I've ordered a few of the cheaper cards Ponder , Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , and Roil Elemental plus I found Brainstorm , Counterspell , Blue Sun's Zenith , Bident of Thassa and Archaeomancer in my collection. I also have a Darksteel Plate instead of the other two artifacts mentioned by bushido_man96. K1ngMars I'll look for an Aqueous Form . Now to see what to take out. I know I'll take Lay Claim out for sure.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. If one of your first Commander decks well done.

Consider more cards that can help blue devotion, give you value when your creatures are unblockable or be upgrades for cards here? Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more help to make cuts. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, Roil Elemental and Willbreaker can be repeatable ways to steal your opponents creatures. Protect them with Swiftfoot Boots . Use Mirage Mirror with Willbreaker to repeatedly steal your opponents creatures for mana while also becoming a copy of a creature you steal until EoT.

Demon of Dark Schemes is an underrated budget casual card in Commander and it can steal your opponents creatures from their graveyards. With Curse of the Swine you can exile the creatures you steal and get pigs in return :)

Darkwater Catacombs , Tainted Isle , Fetid Pools , Underground River , Ash Barrens , Grixis Panorama , Esper Panorama are budget lands to consider adding.

With artifacts being big in your combos you might want to consider running Fabricate . And it is apt to mess up your curve but I think Roil Elemental would be in the spirit of the deck.

8 cards? Well My choices are as follows, it's certainly a hard choice to narrow all of my favorites down. I have been playing since Journey into Nyx.

Prophet of Kruphix - Was one of the leading cards in my first ever Magic deck that I built to play casually and for a time I played it in my first commander deck led by Vorel of the Hull Clade until it's later banning.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon - One of my favorite planeswalker cards of all time that I play both in my modern tron deck as well as Atraxa, Praetors' Voice commander deck. Can turn a game around so easily, his power cannot be denied.

Omniscience - One of the reason I always liked this card was simply for it's art, and I enjoy doing splashy, big plays in commander especially in decks like my Kruphix, God of Horizons .

Westvale Abbey  Flip - Was a card that I built an earlier casual standard deck around involving Blisterpod , Cryptolith Rite , and other eldrazi scion generators to flip this card into Ormendahl, Profane Prince . If that wasn't possible, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger was another card that you could ramp into from tapping and then sacrificing the scions.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - I had one of these first in my above mentioned casual deck that was mostly simic goodstuff, and even after that I made a place for it in a Vorel of the Hull Clade , Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck alongside the other praetors for flavour and now he resides in my Kruphix, God of Horizons deck where one of my favorite things to do with him is cheat him into play with Natural Order to make tons of mana for cost cards or Helix Pinnacle .

Winding Constrictor - Led a former standard deck of mine between Aether Revolt up until the later rotation all around +1/+1 counters. decks were all that I played in standard between Kaladesh to Guilds of Ravnica, only now with Ravnica Allegiance have I finally played a deck in different colours. I still have one in my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck for now until I convert it to superfriends fully with War of the Spark.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - I played this card a ton when it was in standard and I have held onto my two copies of the card which see a bit of commander play in my Edgar Markov and Oloro, Ageless Ascetic decks. Definitely one of my favorite black mythics of all time. I might in the future consider using them in a modern deck mainboard / sideboard if I ever build some deck in modern.

Cabal Coffers - There were so many cards besides this one I could still pick but this one really appeals to me as it embodies the power and greed that is black. Alongside Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth this is such good value, and I now use the card in two commander decks, Lord Windgrace and Gonti, Lord of Luxury .

Honourable Mentions of mine,

Dragonlord Ojutai , Hydra Broodmaster , Horizon Chimera , Bearer of Silence , Roil Elemental , Managorger Hydra , and Slivers!

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Good start, but I think you can expand on the stealing your opponents creatures strategy and get more value from creatures you steal. There's also several budget staple Commander cards to consider adding. All my cards suggestions are budget ($5 or less each).

Command Tower , Exotic Orchard , Reliquary Tower , Yavimaya Coast , Shivan Reef , Cinder Glade , Game Trail , Ash Barrens , Naya Panorama , Bant Panorama are all good budget lands that can ETB untapped. Captivating Crew , Willbreaker , Dominus of Fealty , Zealous Conscripts and Roil Elemental are repeatable sources of stealing. Evolutionary Leap , Ashnod's Altar , Greater Good are repeatable sources of value by sacing your opponent's creatures after you steal them. Use these sac outlets with Skullclamp for even more value. Sol Ring , Chromatic Lantern , Simic Signet , Gruul Signet , Izzet Signet , Talisman of Impulse , Fellwar Stone are staple mana rocks for Commander.

Rattleclaw Mystic , Elvish Mystic , Llanowar Elves , Arbor Elf are budget one drop mana dorks. Sakura-Tribe Elder , Nature's Lore , Farseek , Fertile Ground , Farhaven Elf is more good ramp. Fauna Shaman , Signal the Clans and Gamble are budget tutors. Mystic Remora , Eternal Witness , Chaos Warp , Beast Within , Reclamation Sage , Reality Shift , Stubborn Denial , Arcane Denial are staple Commander cards. Temur Ascendancy , Coiling Oracle , Trygon Predator , Dack's Duplicate and Shaman of the Great Hunt are good Temur cards.

Hero's Blade and Swiftfoot Boots is good equipment with Yasova. Temur Sabertooth is repeatable bounce of creatures who have good ETB abilities such as Conscripts.

If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts. Good luck with your deck.

Buried Alive and Final Parting should go in. Ramos, Dragon Engine could be fun. Also more ramp would help a lot. Cultivate Kodama's Reach and Farseek can't be underestimated in 5 color. Even Coldsteel Heart could be helpful. The vivid lands, like Vivid Grove would be pretty helpful. Tarnished Citadel is another affordable option if you get it from the right seller.

I'd cut Animar, Soul of Elements Doomgape Diabolic Tutor (for final parting) Iroas, God of Victory Fusion Elemental Nylea, God of the Hunt Roil Elemental Cleansing Nova (you have enough board wipes)

I came across Roil Elemental while building this deck. My main concern has always been the CMC. I'd have to try it before saying with certainty there's no room for it, though.

As for World Shaper , if I were running a more 'standard' dredge or creature sacrifice deck, then absolutely I'd play this card. But as it stands, I currently only have self-sacrificing creatures. So there would never be any way for me to use his second ability reliably. His mill three is good, but Hedron Crab is both cheaper, and able to multiple trigger if need be (not to mention I also have Life from the Loam with the same ability).

Still going to consider at the Elemental. It might be a lot better than I give it credit :)
