From looking at this list, I'd say what it needs is less card selection and more actual advantage. Lorien Revealed, Plea for Power, and Distant Melody (naming drakes) could all find a spot in here. Also really surprised to see Snap is not in the deck. It's a free drake.

Cards that reduce the cost of Instants and Sorceries would also suit this deck. Unfortunately the non-creature ones aren't very good. If you wanted to drop the Polymorph strategy, (which personally I would because it's going to make games very samey, not that I have anything against other people who decide to do it this way) Curious Homunculus  Flip and Baral, Chief of Compliance would both be great in here. There's also Thunderclap Drake from the new commander set, and you probably already know about Archmage Emeritus.

I'm not good with mono blue but what comes to mind is:

Baral, Chief of Compliance

Faerie Mastermind

Snapcaster Mage




Echoing Truth can remove creature tokens

Misleading Signpost

Imprisoned in the Moon

Eaten by Piranhas

Cards like Ever-Watching Threshold and Propaganda could help.

Reins of Power

Hope this helps a little.

Some thoughts:

  • 18 lands is waaay too low for a control deck. For reference, Burn decks run 20 lands, and only cast 1-2 mana spells. Control decks typically want to be between 24-27 lands -I would suggest going up to 25.

  • I would ditch both Baral, Chief of Compliance and Curious Homunculus  Flip. Neither help you control the board, and neither particularly act as threats.

  • Disallow is a really weak control card and should be removed or replaced for something better.

  • You have no real way to deal with your opponents boardstate. I think a playset (4x) of Dismember would go a long way towards keeping you safe in the early game before you can counter all the things being played.

  • You currently have 8 “finishers” between Haughty Djinn, Tolarian Terror and Rise from the Tides - this is a LOT for a control deck, which typically wants to invest almost-all of its resources in controlling the board, and just using a single card to secure the victory. I’d suggest going down to 5 threats maximum - ditching the Haughty Djinn entirely.

Soft spot in my heart for Noyan Dar! He was the star of the first standard deck I ever homebrewed. (No, it wasn't very good.) Deck looks fun! Maybe Baral, Chief of Compliance deserves a spot somewhere as good ramp?

Some thoughts:

  • 80 cards is a LOT more than the recommended 60, and will lead to a lot of inconsistency. I’d recommend trying to get back to 60 cards - there’s obvious loose baggage here to ditch.

  • 24 lands in 80 cards is the same as 18 in 60. 18 lands is a very low amount, even for burn decks (which typically run 20).

  • Baral, Chief of Compliance and Goblin Electromancer do nothing for you here - by the time you can cast them, you can cast pretty-much everything else in your deck anyway. Importantly, they neither help with the countermagic or burn plans (they neither help you control the game nor speed up the clock).

  • Convolute and Disallow are both super weak here, just based off mana cost, and are easy cards to ditch to try get you back to a more-reliable 60.

I'd recommend cutting: - Hard Evidence - Hordeling Outburst - Stolen by the Fae - Octavia, Living Thesis - Niv-Mizzet, Parun - Izzet Chronarch - Izzet Chemister - Spellburst - Occult Epiphany - Prismatic Lens - Rogue's Passage

I'd recommend: - Mind Stone (This would probably be more flexible than Prismatic Lens) - Lorien Revealed - Mystic Sanctuary - Sokenzan, Crucible of Defiance - Skittering Invasion - Underworld Breach - Transcendent Message - Archmage Emeritus - Loyal Apprentice - Baral, Chief of Compliance (Potentially just doing a straight swap of this with Goblin Electromancer} - Storm-Kiln Artist - March of Swirling Mist - Crackle with Power (AWESOME win-con) - Apex of Power - Surge to Victory (This is hilarious) - Rise from the Tides - Mnemonic Deluge - Wayfarer's Bauble

Azoth2099 on Lord of the Tokens

Hey man! Just wanted to point out that the classic Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo produces infinite 9/9 Wraith Tokens via your Commander in addition to the infinite Mana it generates when you have 3+ Mana Rocks up! Also, consider adding more Mana Rocks. I typically roll with at least 10 per non-green deck. Very important for consistency, I cannot stress it enough.

I'd also recommend way more Counterspells. The fact that they allow you to break parity as easily as they do with the Wraith Tokens is absolutely bonkers. That, along with things that will help you further capitalize on that theme like Archmage Emeritus & Baral, Chief of Compliance will work wonders for this build imo, and allow you to quickly crush your opponents.
