Melek the Weird

Commander / EDH

Description

Weird counter/burn/double cast deck I made on a budget when I didn't have a whole lot of money. I don't have many win-cons right now, basically only a late game Rise from the Tides followed by a copy spell, as well eye of the storm with bunch of burn spells. The deck is fairly good 1v1, but when I get into multiplayer, its hard to deal so much damage to everyone at once. Any suggestions on what I can add that will allow me to control the board more while doing moderate-to-high amounts of damage would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there! I think there are some ramp cards you should consider that are below the one-dollar mark. Try replacing Pilgrim's Eye and Traveler's Amulet with cards like Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, etc. This and cared draw are most essential, which blue has a bounty of the latter like Treasure Cruise, Opportunity, and Foresee. Also, there are some cards that are not quite doing enough for what you want in an EDH deck. Consider cutting cards like Magma Jet, Hungry Flames, Izzet Chronarch, Anarchist, etc. and replacing them with other cards that you would want to double with all your copiers such as one great example you have in there, Fireball. For example, Comet Storm would be awesome with this deck style. For removal, consider cards like Reality Shift, Rapid Hybridization, Curse of the Swine, or even Red Sun's Zenith. For retrieval, instead of Feldon's Cane or Elixir of Immortality, consider maybe Spelltwine, Call to Mind, and Pull from the Deep. Rise from the Tides seems like an auto-include as well. Hope this improves your consistency! :)

If you're looking to make room, some cuts to consider beyond the ones I already listed based on power level or they just don't push you towards your deck theme/win condition: Psychic Spiral, Chandra's Ignition, Tablet of the Guilds,Trail of Evidence. Otherwise, the other cards are fine, but they may have better options. For example, bounce can be strong if you are playing in a meta that makes big huge tokens, but otherwise not so much. Baral's Expertise is an exception to this considering that it has the versatility of targeting artifacts and lets you cheat mana-cost for a card in hand. You're in red, so instead you could put in something more useful like artifact destruction. You also could replace things with better targets for your doublers, which is a pretty consistent theme an represents a pretty hefty weight on your deck. If you have no targets for them, they are dead in your hand. I already mentioned stuff like Fireball, but there are other options like Stolen Goods, Saheeli's Artistry, Fall of the Titans, etc. You could probably take the one-two worst cards from your Utility, Bounce, Copy, burn sections along with your entire possible cuts section and have tons of room.
