The first cuts I would recommend for this deck would be Laboratory Maniac and Arcane Denial . Yes, it is always good to have a back up plan in your deck (lab man), but I really don't think t is needed here since the cards in your command zone pretty much say: "2UUUU, you win the game" (if played correctly). Next Arcane Denial , as an EDH player I love the card, but in a 60 card format (actually 58) I think it gives your opponent too much card advantage. (One cute little trick to remember about Arcane Denial is that you can treat it as: "discard a cantrip and pay 1UU, draw three cards" if the cantrip costs U.) Another thing I would think about adding is Gitaxian Probe since it cycles through your deck and gives knowledge of an opponent's hand for just 2 life.

BTW, you make a fair point about the issue the fetchlands may cause, but on the flip side you could build you deck in the sense that you are in a 53 card format ( Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Paradigm Shift , Gitaxian Probe , Misty Rainforest , Scalding Tarn , Flooded Strand , and Polluted Delta ) and then that would make it easier to balance the quantities of the rest of the cars in the deck.

First, in commander you can't have planeswalkers as commanders. Second, (I'll stop trolling now, lol) It doesn't seem you have a budget here so why not add Misty Rainforest , Scalding Tarn , Flooded Strand , and Polluted Delta for the extra shuffle effects and minimal deck thinning. Some other possible additions: Windfall , Tolarian Winds , and Scroll Rack . Oh yeah and don't forget in commander we can use planeswalker as commanders (shout out to Teferi, Temporal Archmage ).

I like this build. Couple of general questions...

I don't have Timetwister , I see why it's an auto include but not about to fork out +$3k, any thoughts on alts, clearly not an understudy but cards that maybe you maybe'd? I was thinking Sterling Grove .

Walking Ballista , good card but without the synergy, it seems to be inconsistent. I have seen Hydroid Krasis , it's solid and can play into the combo but not an oops I win? Would be good for a color pair killer in this slot. Not sure what though, I'll start exploring but any suggestions would be cool.

Gemstone Caverns , I see this in plenty of lists but it just looks so corner case that most of the time it's a dead card. Am I missing something? I would have thought Tarnished Citadel would prove more consistent.

Twilight Mire , again, am I missing something? Wouldn't another fetch like Scalding Tarn be better?

Hey! Going by tcgmarket prices this is what I have:

My 1x Scalding Tarn ZEN $102.60

total= $102.60

and your

2x Thoughtseize THS $12.67

1x Verdant Catacombs ZEN $67.78

1x Inquisition of Kozilek MM3 $4.74

Total: $97.86.

Is there anyway you could make up the rest of that $5 or so? Perhaps another IOK?

Jayph on Improvement for challenger deck

I have never played with a blue deck, I always gravitate towards green, black, and red. I have decided to head out and grab a Arcane Tempo challenger deck as I like the idea behind the build. I just play casual, kitchen table style magic so looking for suggestions on a few swap outs to make it better since I don't have to follow standard rules.

I am thinking I am going to swap the 4 Shock for 4 Lightning Bolt and the 4 Opt for 4 Brainstorm add 1 Sulfur Falls and 4 Steam Vents that will replace the 4 Izzet Guildgate I'll add 2 Scalding Tarn and remove 3 of the basic lands. Now these are all changes I can make with cards on hand so what are some other possible changes you recommend?
