Unlessm you're looking to specifically protect your lands and enchantments, I don't think there is any reason to run Turn Aside or Dive Down

For cheap counterspells that aren't listed in your maybe board you can use Dispel , Rebuff the Wicked , Turn Aside , Unsubstantiate , Spell Pierce . Negate , Arcane Denial , Countersquall , and Imp's Mischief .

For Esper colors, there isn't much you can do for fast ramp aside from relying on faster lower costed mana rocks to makes it go faster. The other alternative route to this is going for a cost reducer route like using cards like Helm of Awakening , Jhoira's Familiar , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Cloud Key , Etherium Sculptor , Foundry Inspector , Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , and The Immortal Sun .

Hope that helps!

stensiagamekeeper thanks, I thought trophy read three or less. It’s what I get for building this at 10:00 at night.

Turn Aside was mostly fo the local meta as every one runs American control, counter company or humans and packs Abrade or Assassin's Trophy.

fyi Trophy Mage can't tutor for Strionic Resonator or anything else in your deck for that matter. Turn Aside doesn't seem great as a lot of modern decks don't interact with artifacts or enchantments that way and you'd be better off running something like Spell Pierce, Dispel or Swan Song if you really want protective spells at that mana cost especially as they can also mess with the opponents game plan. If you want ways to tutor up strionic Muddle the Mixture does that, also tutors for The Flame of Keld and is even a counterspell in a pinch. I'd also try and make room for more Lava Spikes or Rift Bolt seeing as this is primarily a burn deck and it could be tricky drawing enough burn to add up to 20.

BelugaWhale217 Love Niv-Mizzet, you can also go for a more hand cycling route to get some more fun. Some cards you can consider that are quite budget would be:

There are also some efficient cheap counterspells as well to protect and interact.

Hope that helps!

Horzo If your worried about your Sen getting removed I would recommend some of these spells! I used to play Sen back in the day and she was one of my favorite decks before I disassembled her.

Additionally a fun card to play with her is Capsize! Bounce back a permanent (or land...) and play them when you take control of their hand!

You're off to a good start! Here are some nonbasic lands you can use that are budget friendly:

I would recommend you run somewhere between 36 and 40 lands (this is including basic lands).

As a green deck, I strongly recommend you make room for some ramp spells. The higher your mana curve the more you should run. They make it easier to cast your bigger spells, recast your commander and ensure you don't get mana stalled. Here are several budget options:

As a blue deck, you may want to make room for a few counterspells, not too many though. You are already running Fuel for the Cause which is good for your deck and Turn Aside you are also running is good to protect your commander and other things. Here are a few budget options:

I hope this helps!

just a thought. I have a deck like this, however i use Turn Aside instead of spell pierce or similar cards.

Also, Tajuru Preserver was unique sideboard tech for my lgs orzhov control bullcrap.

Autumn's Veil was also really good for heavy control decks in sideboard

to get even weirder, Simic Charm was in place of the blessing (I know sue me lol)

Not the most powerful cards but you might wanna give them a whirl. could be surprised by their utility
