Polybius Deckling

Necro

I've been fortunate enough to play Magic all across the world and have seen first hand how this card game brings people together.

Commander is my format of choice and I've been playing since 2014. There are few things I enjoy more than sitting down with a few good friends, a cold drink, and battling it out around my kitchen table.

I play with everything ranging from an uber-competitive Prossh, Skyraider of Kher deck, to a homebrewed Marchesa, the Black Rose, Ally tribal deck.

Please check out my decklists and be sure to drop a +1 or Comment!

Id advise against Mass Hysteria. The reason I think Fervor is cuttable is because you already have plenty of other haste enablers.

Several creatures like Anger, artifacts like Lightning Greaves, etc. should be plenty but ultimately thats just my opinion.

Interaction depends entirely on your meta. Swan Song and Chain of Vapor are auto-includes, definitely snag those.

These are other spells I like:

Typically, I like to carry 6-10 targeted removal options(these include counter spells) and at least 2 mass removal spells.

Very cool deck! Since your goal is to keep it casual I'll suggest cards that are upgrades to stuff you already have, that way you can do what you've been doing just a bit faster/more consistently.

Mana Ramp:At the moment I see 7 sources of artifact ramp in your deck. I'd highly recommend increasing that to the 10-12 range, it will drastically speed up your deck.

Consider Adding:- Prismatic Lens- Fellwar Stone- Mind Stone- Rakdos Signet- Izzet Signet- Dimir Signet- Coldsteel Heart- Sphere of the Suns

Consider Removing:- Commander's Sphere- Darksteel Ingot- Worn Powerstone

Card Draw:The 6 card draw spells you have here are fine but I'd recommend adding at least 5 more, specifically card spells that help you discard into your graveyard or fill up your hand on the cheap.

Consider Adding:- Thirst for Knowledge- Careful Study- Phyrexian Arena- Read the Bones- Night's Whisper- Dig Through Time- Chart a Course - Tormenting Voice- Preordain- Brainstorm- Ponder

Consider Removing:- Winds of Rebuke- Tragic Lesson - Essence Flux- Fervor- Rolling Thunder- Unstable Obelisk- Treasure Cruise- Conjurer's Closet

Land:If you up your mana rock count to the 10-12 range, you can drop your land count down to 32-34 and have no issues.

The best way to go about improving your landbase is focusing on adding lands that enter untapped and can give you multiple colors.

Are just a few examples of lands you should consider adding in place of slower, enter tapped lands.

That's just the basic rundown of how to improve the core of your deck and make it a bit more consistent. Hopefully those ideas help!

Very cool deck! +1 from me!

I'd recommend adding more mana rocks:

More mana rocks will help caat your angels and high cmc spells more reliably.

I also think more removal would be a good idea:

I'm assuming your goal is to combo off with Marisil ASAP, so here's my suggestions:

  1. Focus on whatever combo is quickest to help streamline your strategy. Combo decks work best when they have one specific, achievable goal.

  2. Drop high CMC cards like Prismatic Geoscope or Flayer of the Hatebound and add in more reliable, low CMC cards.

  3. I'd add Lightning Greaves to help protect Marisil.

  4. Bounce spells like Capsize and Chain of Vapor to help deal with annoying permanents.

  5. Card draw like Mystic Remora, Frantic Search, Thirst for Knowledge, Preordain, Ponder, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, etc.

  6. More mana rocks will help you get off to a faster start as well Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, Dimir Signet and Izzet Signet should all be here. If you run more mana rocks you can cut your land count down to 32-33 with no problems.

These are the most obvious ways I can see to improve your deck. Hopefully some of those ideas help!
