This is not meant for any offense to you, but anyone with a semi decent commander deck would crush this, you could probably stand with a switching of commanders, look up a few and see which ones you like, then you could use Stormtide Leviathan for heavy hitting, Mulldrifter is just good fore card draw, Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, and Arcanis the Omnipotent is a must have as well. Counterspell is just one of the best cards ever printed for blue, Cyclonic Rift, Sol Ring should be in every single deck no matter what, no exceptions, Disallow is also just strictly good, Brainstorm and Ponder are also amazing cards that belong in every blue deck, Sapphire Medallion, Blue Sun's Zenith, Rhystic Study is amazing card draw, Thought Vessel is pretty good, Dissolve, Clever Impersonator, Jace's Sanctum, Dismiss, Metallurgic Summonings, Void Shatter, Treasure Cruise it may not seem it but its a very good card, even got restricted in Standard because of it, Reality Shift, Thing in the Ice  Flip, Venser, Shaper Savant, High Tide, Mana Leak

Could use more mana rocks since Melek is pretty expensive and it's gonna get pretty hard to cast him if he gets removed a couple of times. I suggest Thran Dynamo, Fire Diamond, Sky Diamond, Izzet Keyrune and Sapphire Medallion for starters. Arcane Melee is a little risky, but should be a lot of fun too.

Also adding more cards that reward you for slinging spells is key (i.e. Talrand, Sky Summoner, Guttersnipe, Mercurial Geists, Thing in the Ice  Flip, Niblis of Frost, Young Pyromancer, Wee Dragonauts, Thermo-Alchemist). Also Storm cards.

Work on finding a clear wincon too, it wasn't really apparent to me, but clear things up if there is one at the moment plox.

I think a Sapphire Medallion would get you further than Fellwar Stone. Engulf the Shore is a cruel way to get 2nd chances to counter things. I always like Myriad Landscape in mono color decks, and Reliquary Tower is another spot that could provide more benefit than a basic island. A few more finishers would be nice, you could keep the table in check until you can play a Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur or Sphinx of the Final Word or some krakens, something ridiculous.

I like the combo, it's solid, just think something like Cavern of Souls could ruin your day and having some longevity can help the deck recover from combo pieces getting removed or turned off.

Nearly nice build, gave some great ideas for a version of this I'm working on. +1!

Ps. The goal should be to see how quick you get the whole table to scoop lol!!! Actually if you could get this combo online and protect it often enough it'd be a solid competitive deck in an environment where you aren't looking to make any friends!

Got some ideas... Well of Ideas, Future Sight, Sapphire Medallion, High Tide, Master of Waves... Whir of Invention is great just to get sol ring early or something big like caged sun late game. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx should ramp you. Proteus Staff can be used defensively against super scary monsters or to transform your own tokens into creature cards. Illusionist's Bracers will get double uses out of Memnarch. Happy gathering!!

how about Thermo-Alchemist? after suffering a turn of summoning sickness he can tap to shoot each opponent for 1, cast a sorcery/instant, he untaps, do it again. also add in Ruby Medallion and Sapphire Medallion so your spells are cheaper to cast (on top of mizzix)

Eiti3 on how to works this cards ...

Any costs that can be paid during casting can be reduced, including buyback, kicker, and the like.

To cast Clockspinning with-

  • Sapphire Medallion on the field will cost normally, or with buyback.
  • Battlefield Thaumaturge on the field will only be reduced to IF a creature has a counter on it and you target THAT creature and its counter.
  • both Sapphire Medallion and Battlefield Thaumaturge on the field, targeting a creature with a counter, will cost .

  • Other than that, you can't lower it anymore with Battlefield Thaumaturge because Clockspinning only targets one permanent.
