Sea Gate Oracle Discussion

A few miscellaneous thoughts.

Curse of Chains is the best version of that effect you can play in pauper, and doesn't require a desert sub-theme.

Sea Gate Oracle is one of the best 3-drops in the format, but it's easy to underestimate. 3 toughness is extremely relevant.

Fierce Empath fits this deck literally perfectly. Searches out emerge guys and then is a 3-drop to sac to them.

Blue gives you access to the best digging in the format. Things like Vessel of Nascency aren't as good when you can play things like Ponder, Preordain, and Brainstorm. I understand that vessel has synergy with Bloodbriar, but I think that sub-theme might be a bit too cute to be perfectly honest. I feel like he'll just be a 2/3 or maybe a 3/4 90% of the time.

If you're set on keeping the bloodbriars, Nest Invader is another good one you can play.

You are off to a great start!

Don't forget about Sea Gate Oracle along with Azami, Lady of Scrolls (the latter isn't a triggered ability but it's too good not to play here). Scrivener also seem like a worthy addition.

Please let me know if you have any additional ideas for this deck. It seems really interesting.

Sea Gate Oracle would have value in this deck

as would Riverwise Augur

and Deadeye Navigator would give you a copy of a creature you control for four mana.

This commander seems similar to Inalla, Archmage Ritualist in concept so you might want to look to some of her deck lists for inspiration.

You are probably right, Teferi's Veil might be too unreliable. You really put together a deck that is consistent and every card is well chosen.My deck is a bit less focussed, but that's to a certain degree on purpose. It wins with the same combos that are often availabe through tutors or insane card draw, but has a more diverse and agressive style, but less control (and artifacts). Marchesa, the Black Rose is in there, which seems fun with Teferi's Veil. You hit harder every time your tokens survive. But we mostly play multiplayer, so you can attack an opponent with less/smaller blockers. That's one reason why I don't play fully competitive, but also with some fun elements.Both altars at the same time are not the worst thing to have. Only Ashnod's would give you infinite colourless mana, while only Phyrexian might not give you infinite mana (+1 mana, -1 mana for copy). With both, you have infinite coloured mana and can play anything in your hand/draw/deck/graveyard/tutor (depens what else is there). But of course that is in many cases overkill, when the first combo with infinite anything is already enough.I really like your card choices, well chosen, and will certainly come again to look for improving my deck, if it will be necessary. well, except Merchant of Secrets. It's just worse than Sea Gate Oracle in every way, that's one thing I can't stand. A fun but weaker card, a situational card, all not the best draws, but give me a card that is just plain worse than that other possible card, I hate that.

I think if your game plan is to overwhelm, as soon as you're playing Fog you losing. Your goal is to overwhelm with creatures so Lead the Stampede Should help you draw into them, and then Elvish Visionary and Sea Gate Oracle both draw you into more creatures. I don't think flash does anything for you so I might drop Shambleshark to just make stuff 4 ofs. I'm sure there's more counter shenanigans you can pull but I don't know what they are.

You might want to add straight cantrips like Brainstorm with Shuffle effects like Evolving Wilds or Ash Barrens. But It might just distract from overwhelming with creatures.
