Posted on Aug. 12, 2019, 4:32 a.m. by Stardragon I made a Jeskai Wizard Tribal deck but im 51 cards over lol. I'm not sure what cards to cut. I think there 9 non wizards in the deck The Locust God , Keranos, God of Storms , Wonder , Young Pyromancer , Hypersonic Dragon , Docent of Perfection Flip, Torrential Gearhulk , Soulfire Grand Master and God-Eternal Kefnet in the list as of right now but they all help for what I'm going for. Any help would be EXTREMELY grateful, as well as any ideas to make it even better.
The deck focuses on drawing cards and instant and sorcery tribal as well, and trying to squeeze as much out of the instants and sorceries as I can. (I.E Flashback, Prowess, Boons (when i play them/ are in grave), copying them, or returning them to my hand from the grave. ect.)

You have enough ramp that you don't need 41 lands, 38 should suffice. However, 55 cards over is not just cutting a few to reach 100, it's basically two decks sharing one mana base.
You should try to streamline the strategy more prior to getting help on individual cuts, as you need to figure out how you want the deck to work. Otherwise it's very hard for people to make suggestions.

Stardragon: it's not that you didn't provide what you're after, but more that what you're wanting to do strategy wise has put you at so many cards over.
This kind of leaves you in a situation where you're going to have to choose between each of the strategies or dilute both of them. Becuase a deck that heavily leverages instants and sorceries is not a deck full of creatures unfortunately.
I appreciate that you're wanting the deck to do a bunch of stuff, but again that can make it difficult to suggest cuts as card XZY falls under one of the strategies and so you may not want to cut it.
I would recommend picking one line for the deck (either wizard tribal or spell slinger) and then going from there.
