You might be in need of some pillowfort options like Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, Sphere of Safety, and Propaganda. Don't want to be attacked while giving stuff to people.

If you like Paradox Haze, Strionic Resonator will both double down on his triggered ability.

Vedalken Plotter, Harmless Offering, Djinn of Infinite Deceits and Bazaar Trader to give stuff away or trade, which is nice.

If you like Reliquary Tower you'll also like Thought Vessel.

Good luck! Hope some of these are useful!

thatguycrow, Im glad you like the deck! I appreciate the feedback.

I have always thought of running a Doomsday package as another alternate win condition; Laboratory Maniac used to be in the deck but I couldnt get much use out of him because I had no way to easily abuse the effect.

If I were to put a Doomsday package in here, I could probably cut a few of the slower Wizards in the deck such that this list would become almost purely combo oriented. My main question is: what am I looking to put in? Just a few more cantrips and Doomsday?

Vedalken Plotter is really just a test right now. My friends play a lot of the Ixalan block transform lands, so its always good to steal those. Additionally, getting Urborg and Cabal Coffers for free with one cast nets me a pretty decent gain. It isnt always amazing and its pretty meta dependent, though.

Ive considered Mana Echoes but never tried it. If you have any particularly positive things to say about it, I could probably try to pick one up and see how it performs!

(Apologies in advance if my post screws up btw. I am on mobile and the preview is not showing any apostrophes, so I may seem illiterate.)

Some pretty good control cards that bounce are, Stonehorn Dignitary to stop aggro decks, Vedalken Plotter to maybe steal key lands or steal a color they need for commander, and Elgaud Shieldmate is a nice way to protect your commander or any other creature since you can bounce it.

Daedalus19876- Thanks! I've retired my Aurelia the Warleader Voltron deck, and this is now my "Main" deck.

I've considered Puca's Mischief for a bit now, but I'm hesitant to add it since I'm very picky about when and what I trade with my opponents. Vedalken Plotter was part of the original list, but has since been removed.

Starfield of Nyx has proved very useful for the recursion effect, since I don't currently own a Replenish. Plus it's Opalescence that also retrieves stuff Caustic Caterpillar will inevitably destroy. I will note I had trouble earlier with it after playing Humility as It rendered all of my enchantments useless once they become creatures. ._.

Wild Ricochet has saved games more than once.

The REAL reason I have Glaring Spotlight in here is because a buddy of mine thought it would be fun if he made a Narset deck, and I realized even with all my O'Ring shenanigans, If I can't get around hexproof there's not much I can do but buy time.

Counterflux will makes it way out in time.

I just recently took out Illusions of Grandeur and Land Tax. Why would I do such crazy things? I'll tell you!

  1. Illusions can only hit for 20, and most of the time, my opponents blow it up before I can give it to them. (Return to Dust, Seal of Cleansing, etc)

  2. I removed Land Tax to increase the effectiveness of Equipoise. I do miss my scroll tax, so I'll consider putting it back in.

Thanks for taking the time to look over and suggest things! :) I am CONSTANTLY updating/tuning this deck IRL, so it will always be changing.

Ooh, this is gorgeous! Also, great musical choice to go along with the deck! Hahaha.

A few minor suggestions, though:

Puca's Mischief, Vedalken Plotter, and Daring Thief are great cards to add to easily swap permanents.

I'd cut Absorb for simple Counterspell.

Without question, I would remove Starfield of Nyx. It makes your enchantments vulnerable to creature board wipes.

Personally, I don't like Glaring Spotlight, Counterflux, or Wild Ricochet. Neither seems to live up to their potential.

You're missing Illusions of Grandeur :)

Why not play Land Tax? Gives you access to Scroll Tax, the best card draw combo in the game (beyond the normal land fixing it entails).

Hope this helps! :)

Austin_Smith_of_Cards Thank you for your feedback. A lot of those cards were in my original build of Zedruu the Greathearted. This was before I went the more competitive rout.

I have been getting into cEDH more and was tuning my deck towards a more comprehensive meta rather than just making a fun toying with people deck.

Illusions of Grandeur was good but when I am gaining a bunch of life already it kind of pointless. It only effects one person and most of the time they dont pay and just lose 20 life.

Akroan Horse is another okay option here. I liked it because it instantly goes to another player and saves me mana that way but I found my self wanting other hate cards rather then getting a free give away.

Humble Defector I never put in as I dont want to help out my opponents who then will use it and just give it back. or help themselves more with teh extra draw poer, as I play in a mostly competitive meta it helps infinite combos go faster.

Paradox Haze was in the deck originally. Two zedruu triggers is nice but is not needed in teh build I went for. I have more control over my draw then most zedruu decks with Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top plus a few others.

Bazaar Trader, Vedalken Plotter, Harmless Offering Are all pretty much the same, giving people things and trading things. They are mediocre in the grand scheme of things and when I can replace them with more taxing effects that affect everyone.

Puca's Mischief is a good card but havent had a chance to actually test it yet

Perplexing Chimera is a mana intensive card for a deck that doesnt have a lot of ramp. It can work good when you have Homeward Path out but it isnt needed

Azorius Signet took this out beacuse I wanted room for other things. I found that my mana base is pretty good as is. The only upgrades I would is the OG dual lands and fetches.

Assemble the Legion, Sphere of Safety, Are all good cards, just not in this deck. I dont attack much in the deck and having weenie creatures for 5 mana is not that good. Also with Sphere of safety I am not as worried about people attacking with the life gain. so for 5 mana for a propaganda effect isnt worth it.

Alhammarret's Archive this card would be pretty crazy in a casual arena, but with a meta of combo decks its too slow to get it to work.

Aetherflux Reservoir thic card may get tried sometime but as far as right not it did not make the cut.

Swords to Plowshares I do not run any targetted removal or board wipes except Cyclonic Rift. I usually dont care what creatures others have as I have options for that. IT is a more controlling build. Especially with cards like Humility and Lightmine Field and Silent Arbiter I am fine taking attacks.

Most of teh cards you mentioned were in a my original build of zedruu when I built it as a group hug fun deck that would occasionally win. This deck is by far more consistent and wins demanding by the control I have over the game.

Thank you for your input
