Baral, Chief of Compliance Discussion

Ah, then def start there. Iron out your wincon and it'll help shape your deck. You've got some instant/sorcery manipulation going on with Metallurgic Summonings and Baral, Chief of Compliance so you might benefit from leaning into that! Alternatively you could lean into an EtB situation and use Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and other blink effects. I might have to play around with Rashmi now... (ugh that sounds wrong)

Ral, Storm Conduit, Thousand-Year Storm, Aetherflux Reservoir, and Sentinel Tower maximize the usage of his ability to copy spells and push the flashback/copy theme over the top.

You also want to run creatures that reduce cost or give you combat advantage, like Baral, Chief of Compliance, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Kykar, Wind's Fury, and Taigam, Ojutai Master are just a few examples.

If you want to check out my decklist and look at the combo pieces here it is Sevinne, blast from the past

It's also able to do a variety of tricks, first off in a Baral, Chief of Compliance deck it a 1 blue Chart a Course that bounces a spell or resets storm/replicate/on-cast triggers, and it triggers things like Lullmage Mentor while losing 0 cards in hand.

First off, I’ld cut Baral, Chief of Compliance, mostly because you aren’t running a counterspell deck. You may have a few in here but not enough to justify a slot in the 99. These other ones are a start to the ones I’ld remove:

One card I would most definitely add to the deck though is Venser, Shaper Savant. With the etb doubler your commander has built in you could use Venser to return an opponents spell to their hand then with his doubled etb return himself to your hand to cast again when that opponent tries to cast the same spell again. And with all the cost reducers you have in here you’ll be able to cast him numerous times before your next turn.

I second multimedia, this deck would benefit from fewer creatures and more instants (since that's what your commander's ability is based around).

That said, some creatures I would suggest for a spellslinger theme (other than those already suggested) Goblin Electromancer, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Electrostatic Field, Spellseeker, Curious Homunculus  Flip, Guttersnipe, Sprite Dragon, or even Wavebreak Hippocamp.

There are so many good/cheap instants you can consider to fuel this thing too.

Cmcoheed, I think this is one of the best Baral, Chief of Compliance lists on TappedOut! Compared to other Baral, Chief of Compliance lists, I like how focused and "no-frills" this one is. Great work, my dude.
