Spell Swindle Discussion

Also, do you think my number of lands is OK? Ive never made an EDH deck so I estimated, but hopefully it wont matter too much due to Urza's ability.
And should I go less heavy on the counterspells and go full artifact? I wanted to take advantage of the blue given so I added some counterspells. Spell Swindle looks AMAZING because all of the treasures can be tapped every turn.

Things to add:
Things to remove:
Counterspells like: Condescend that ask a player to X are okay to stay, they are the kind you want along with the unconditional ones.
Hope it helps fam.

I think with the obvious and imminent danger of an infect deck, you might find that your creatures or your attacks become susceptible to instant-speed removal. You could consider fine-tuning your own package of instant spells to run counter spells to combat this (having access to blue is good for something).
Disallow or Spell Swindle are good commander-power counter spells, but actually my first thought for you was Scatter to the Winds , as you can actually Awaken a Land, bolster it, and use it to poisondeath your opponent. Could be a play they dont see coming.

I guess mine would probably consist of the following.
Smothering Tithe Since this card came out it has been included in every deck I have that runs white without access to green since it can potentially give so many treasure tokens for big plays.
Geist of Saint Traft Really love this guy as one of my most recent edh decks since I made into and aura Voltron style deck that I think does some really good work.

I would consider a few of the stronger mill payloads, such as Mind Grind , Fraying Sanity , and Sphinx's Tutelage . A fun combo is Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank for infinite mill and damage. You are also fairly low on removal, and a slow mill deck wants a lot of that. There are the more expensive options like Damnation or Cyclonic Rift , but you seem like you want to stick to a low budget so I would recommend AEtherize or Languish . Phenax, God of Deception is very popular as a mill commander, but is still good in the 99 if you want to stick with Mirko. Counterspells are also very powerful in a deck like this, since you don't care about you're opponents board state much, and Counterspell , Commit / Memory , Foil , Spell Swindle , and Memory Lapse are very good for that role and are pretty cheap to pick up. Grindstone is pretty expensive, but can kill a mono-color deck very quickly if your play group has a lot of that.

Marionette Master is not a pirate, but yes it's not a bad choice as win condition, i don't produce that much treasure to be worth it.
Spell Swindle was in the deck but only one counter isn't worth it to run, i've shyed away from counters because i want this deck to be mainly tribal and i don't think i'll run a worst negate that's already not that good in commander format.
