With all the wheels you’re playing, consider:

Consecrated Sphinx

Alms Collector

Additionally there is

Emergency Powers

Diminishing Returns

As additional wheel effects. And with all the cards you’re putting in the bin Treasure Cruise may be an effective draw spell.

As a finisher, rather than Banefire consider Expansion / Explosion as a way to draw additional cards, and, if you find that you are able to get through the entire deck, perhaps Labratory Maniac.

Had another look. I like:

There's a bunch other good cards there too. Most of the lands I see are good.

Spell recusion creatures are always good: Archaeomancer , Izzet Chronarch , Anarchist , Mnemonic Wall , Salvager of Secrets . Maybe just 2 or 3.

I 100% think that we will get Counterspell , it would only replace 2-3 of the current 2 mana counters in UW control? I think that people over value it, it's essentially Mana Leak for UU up until about turn 4/5. I would also liked to see some playable version of FOW but I doubt that we will actually get FOW.

I would really love to see a nerfed Gush / Treasure Cruise . I want to play a traditional tempo deck so bad and I think that something like this (along with some free counter) would make it viable BUT I understand how risky and format warping that can be so I doubt we will actually get it. I honestly have no idea what it would even look like if we did get it.

I really want to see a weaker fetch land printed, maybe something like

tap: create a colorless mana tap: Pay 1 life: search for a mountain (or plains, ect....)

if they aren't going to reprint fetches to make them accessible then there should really be some kind of budget alternative that can be replaced later.

kaluzzay on Budget Formatless Decks

Hello everyone.

Me and my friends are trying to build ultra-budget formatless decks to play "competitively" against each other. The restriction is it cant be more expensive (based on a particular website min. price) than 15 dollars.

I started sketching some decks online based on strong cards that are also cheap or banned in other formats. For example i could use Ponder and Brainstorm and even Treasure Cruise and Hymn to Tourach .

i came up with this:

1 - UR Spells shell deck, using Thermo-Alchemist and Electrostatic Field together with Curiosity and cheap shocks/bolts, cantrips. Link -> UR Spells

2- Monoblack shell with discards, Smallpox , Pox , Shrieking Affliction and The Rack Link -> Budget Smallpox

3- UR Shell with Kiln Fiend and Nivix Cyclops Strategy. Link -> UR Kiln Fiend

4- Infect based, since we have acess to Invigorate , but the list seems too fragile and slow without room for Mutagenic Growth , even running BS and Ponder.

Ill be linking the decks ASAP here.

do you guys have any cool ideas for decks that i can come up with that are strong and fast, or maybe some weird control or combo deck would be nice too. Id like some kind of Balance deck xD

Hey, nice start for a budget upgrade of the precon.

With Jeleva you don't have to go completely over the top with all splashy high mana cost spells, some is good. You can benefit from Jeleva by simply getting card advantage when she attacks from a low mana cost spell you exiled with her especially a draw spell such as Brainstorm or a tutor such as Gamble .

Budget cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

Lots of creatures goes against Jeleva's ability. If you have a lot of creatures then it makes it more difficult for you to hit an instant/sorcery to exile. You want to benefit from Jeleva's ETB ability too, not just exile your opponents spells.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Dimir Guildgate
  • Izzet Guildgate
  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Temple of the False God
  • Vivid Creek
  • Vivid Marsh
  • Baleful Strix
  • Dimir Doppelganger
  • Djinn Illuminatus
  • Fog Bank
  • Nekusar, the Mindrazer
  • Thraximundar
  • Tsabo Tavoc
  • Uyo, Silent Prophet
  • Vampire Nighthawk
  • Hypersonic Dragon
  • Fissure Vent
  • Liturgy of Blood
  • Molten Disaster
  • Tempt with Reflections
  • Annihilate
  • Price of Fame
  • Starstorm
  • Spiteful Visions
  • Illusionist's Gambit
  • Phthisis

If you like these suggestions then I offer more help. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice budget version of Yuriko. Delve spells are quite powerful with Yuriko's reveal ability because they have high CMCs, but their mana cost can be reduced by you by exiling cards from your graveyard including lands.

Budget cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Kindred Dominance
  • Ghostform
  • Raise Dead
  • Resourceful Return
  • Counterlash
  • AEtherspouts
  • Cloak of Mists
  • Armillary Sphere
  • Darksteel Forge
  • Minamo Sightbender
  • Possessed Skaab

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Do you own the cards that are in the maybeboard? There's several there that are much better than cards in the main deck.

Consider building this Dimir deck with Sultai in mind? If your goal is to play Sultai with Tasigur or Muldrotha later on then my advice is get playable cards that you can use in those decks, but for the time being get blue, black and Dimir cards and play them here with budget good stuff self-mill/reanimation strategies. Good stuff being playable spells especially creatures who have good ETB (enter the battlefield) abilities. Tasigur and Muldrotha use self-mill strategies not opponent mill strategies. Tasigur and Muldrotha abilities only work with cards in your own graveyard. Self-mill is much more powerful than opponent mill in multiplayer Commander.

Budget cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding that you can use in Sultai with Tasigur or Muldrotha later on:

If you like this idea then I can further help you to change this deck to make it easier to convert it into Sultai later on, but for now still being a good Dimir deck with Scarab God as Commander. Let me know your thoughts, good luck.


TaegukTheWise on Grixis [League of Super Evil] Control

Wandering Fumarole is a main board pick for me, mainly due to the low density of creatures that control decks usually carries, so a land that can turn into a win condition against other control decks, or a blocker against more aggressive decks is very much needed. I would trade it out for Lavaclaw Reaches due to the fact that its colors are a lot easier to get to and add to your deck based on how wizards seems to not like the enemy color pairings but its also more expensive than a pick I would rather use over lavaclaw: Mishra's Factory , since it can be a very cheap attacker that allows you to keep up counter magic more effectively and turn it into a 3/3 after summoning sickness passes when you need to block. on the topic of lands City of Brass does more harm to you than good, especially against aggressive matchups, or storm.

I don't know about Volrath's Stronghold in a deck that doesn't: A: have very many creatures, and B: is not focused on a creature combo like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Pestermite . And even then you have Kolaghan's Command to get back a threat anyway. If you want better recursion against a good portion of decks that's repeatable and punishes aggro decks look for The Scarab God , or if you want a cheap walker that can do that, look for Liliana, Death's Majesty , she makes 2/2 zombies while putting stuff in the bin for Tasigur, the Golden Fang , and reanimates something like Platinum Emperion after an Abrade .

Red Elemental Blast seems like a very specific pick, I'm wondering what kind of meta garners that kind of pick, but i'm not judging.

Liliana of the Veil is a good card, however I don't see how she fits with the decks overall strategy, yes she discards fueling delve, and makes an opponent sacrifice a creature, but resolving her doesn't win the game in the way Jace, the Mind Sculptor does, nor does she have the broad utility that you need for her to be that good in this type of deck. She's not good for card advantage and in fact it enables reanimator strategies where she's played in and helps decks that are more efficient than you are get ahead, and her creature removing capabilities are hindered by opposing tokens (which in that case I recommend Pyroclasm ). she's a good card, but she doesn't do that much for you.

Stifle is more of a tempo pick, but if it works it works, however if your looking for a better version that has more of a control outlook try Disallow .

So if you're stuck on what points to put in, I would do the following assuming you either have the card or don't care about price: Ancestral Recall 7, Dig Through Time 1, and either Treasure Cruise , True-Name Nemesis , or Mana Drain 1 = 10. Otherwise, you can stick with Demonic Tutor and try using the tutors fairly instead of using it for a combo: Demonic Tutor 3, Vampiric Tutor 3, Dig Through Time 1, Treasure Cruise 1, True-Name Nemesis 1, Mana Drain 1 = 10. However if you want to try adding combo to your list cheaply, like I have with my Grixis control deck with Kiki combo your two points for treasure cruise and true-name would instead go to Mystical Tutor at 2. However there's still at least one more point spread, which does involve combo and changing some of your deck's dynamics and cards to support it which can hedge into dedicated combo or a control shell to protect it, and again if you don't care about price: Time Vault 6, Demonic Tutor 3, Dig Through Time 1 = 10. To find the time vault deck, go through my page and go to "recently viewed" and look for "Grixis Vault control" from the Canadianhighlanderdatabase.

That's all for now, but I might comment again based on whatever feedback you need.
