marcsman, great list-I was going to make a more moderate power level version of this deck until I saw your build.

I had a few questions. What artifact does Goblin Engineer usually put in the graveyard? I am guessing Lion's Eye Diamond. And is Lion's Eye Diamond usually cracked in response to you casting a wheel?

What do you usually get when you transmute Muddle the Mixture?

The deck seems very light on removal. I know some of the CEDH favorites are not in your colors-Abrupt Decay, or Assassin's Trophy. But Chain of Vapor is an option as well as a something like Force of Vigor which is not seen in CEDH circles but is good.

Am I correct that the deck has three wincons-Purphoros, God of the Forge, Finale of Devastation and Craterhoof Behemoth?

Hot take here, but I actually really hope that Imperial Seal doesn't get reprinted now or ever. Seal is much more of a collector's item, and I'd hate to see it pop up in every single black deck I sit down against. Vampiric Tutor is the card that should receive reprints and be in the medium budget range ($25-$50) for decks to acquire. I'd also dislike to see Personal Tutor, Sylvan Tutor, and other valuable Portal cards like Capture of Jingzhou receive reprints as well. All of these cards have equivalents that are much more affordable, and those cards should be receiving the reprints. I also think it will help the player base more to have common staples like Vampiric Tutor and the mirage tutors at budget prices ($10-$25 if I'm dreaming) rather than drop an expensive card like Imperial Seal from $500 down to $200 or $150. Even if Imperial Seal were to drop down to $75 which I consider extremely unlikely, it would still be out of the price range of many of the players who wanted the reprint.

That being said, I believe Imperial Seal will get a reprint in the next 2-5 years with almost 100% certainty. It will be a mythic rare to chase in some premium product.

I'd love to see any and all land reprints outside of ABU Duals. By far the least fun and least sexy part of assembling a deck, but absolutely necessary for 3+ color commanders. Shocklands, Checklands, Filterlands, and Painlands should all be affordable so players can build various decks. I'm even on board for fetchland reprints. I'd also like to see more fast mana reprints, specifically Mana Vault and Mox Amber. I'd also like to see efficient answers reprinted, always down for a Force of Will reprint and even Force of Negation, and I also think Abrupt Decay Assassin's Trophy Toxic Deluge Vandalblast Wrath of God Damnation and more.

I'd also love to see another cycle of Magus creatures. I've always thought they were very tastefully done, and excellent for EDH.

Deck looks cool and fun, but there should probably be some more interaction, like Assassin's Trophy, Path to Exile, Thoughtseize etc. Also, Fae of Wishes is better as a maincard, so you can have access to hate cards g1 before you can sideboard.

I would like to add x 4 Assassin's Trophy, however I cannot, at this time, justify spending the money. For know I will use Putrefy. I guess this is the poor man's Assassin's Trophy

Vinman Hi again :) I don't think green spalsh is awful, i tested it when Assassin's Trophy was announced, and it was nice, I just prefer the UB version XD. Anyways Hunted Horror is a really nice card, but is strong only vs Leyline of Sanctity so is a card that you put in your SB just for one card. So in my opinion it's not enough versatile and it can be easily removed with any removal so it's week in my opinion. If u want to play big creatures at low cost i suggest instead Jace's Phantasm or Thieves' Guild Enforcer that is a really strong removal too. In combo with Lurrus of the Dream-Den they are really fun to play and Thieves' Guild Enforcer is strong too (in my opinion) and I want to test her. Anyways, thanks for your comment :)

SentinelElf2711 thank you for the suggestions. I did more research of UB decks and saw Stern Dismissal as a solid T1 answer (as we want to start milling asap). I liked the idea of Assassin's Trophy, again as a way to force a search for our opponent. The splash for green is not awful. I would just replace a Watery Grave with Breeding Pool to help. If it's only 1 Green pip, I don't see the huge issue. It's not a hard green push. Thassa's Oracle is a very interesting option. Didn't think about self mill then win off of it. I'm still tweaking on paper, so I don't have an updated list to show you on tappedout. Thoughts on Hunted Horror as an unconventional answer to Leyline?

Hi Vinman, for the UBG version, Assassin's Trophy is very strong. Unfortunatly i don't really like the splash of green in mill, like the UBW version,it makes the manabase unstable (in my opinion). I know that Leyline of Sanctity is a very big problem for us, but we can be very creative with answers: did you think about siding Thassa's Oracle and milling yourself? It's a very good strategy,not only vs Leyline of Sanctity, but is very good vs dredge, decks who has Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Gaea's Blessing ecc (is really good in mirror matches too). We have Set Adrift, Stern Dismissal, we can counter it with Drown in the Loch. We have losts of answers, without needing green.But this is just my personal opinion :) Anyways, u can play Assassin's Trophy in mainboard, is a good good removal, and 1 or 2 Nature's Claim in SB. But in my opinion the best version of mill still UB. (I am working on a new list, this one is just a test). BTW ty for your comment. I hope I have told you something useful.
