Bident of Thassa

Legendary Enchantment Artifact

Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, you may draw a card.

, : Creatures your opponents control attack this turn if able.

I'd swap Graceful Adept for Library of Leng. Cheaper, harder to remove, and added bonus against discard.

Cancel for any other counterspell. There are plenty of 1UU with upside such as personal favorite of mine, Admiral's Order. Rewind, Dissipate, Unwind and Negate are also solid budget options. Personally not a fan of Mana Leak-esk counters since if an opponent has a ton of Mana, they become useless. Also, Defense Grid is an odd choice for a blue deck since it hurts your own counters on your opponents turn.

I'd consider trying to find room for a card or cards like Coastal Piracy, Bident of Thassa, and The Indomitable.

Single protection to consider, Mithril Coat is amazing, Commander's Plate always pulls a ton of weight in mon color (may hurt commander's unblockable agaimst another monoblue but otherwise really helps), Dive Down not amazing, just a pet card when it was in standard.

Ohran Frostfang, Toski, Bearer of Secrets, Reconnaissance Mission, Bident of Thassa, Coastal Piracy, The Indomitable, Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor, and Marcus, Mutant Mayor are all excellent draw engines here. I personally recommend running 3-5 of these but especially Ohran.

Last_Laugh I get that more draw is always something everyone wants, and I wouldnt mind adding a couple more spells, but I'm having a hard time switching out stuff for them. What would you swap for Bident of Thassa and Tocasia's Welcome, perhaps Court of Vantress as well? I was thinking that the two 5 CMC Knights, Cavalier of Dawn and Cavalier of Night could be good potential swaps, even though they're well worth the 5 mana cost. Gonna need some help on this

I have to agree with Crow_Umbra that the deck feels very light on draw power.

Bident of Thassa can draw a lot of cards. Consider Court of Vantress here too. Tocasia's Welcome is only once per turn but it's well worth a slot. Tenuous Truce is political but you can almost always find someone to draw with... for awhile at least.

Upvoted for the name alone. I have several card draw suggestions for you that are very budget friendly but very impactful here.

Reconnaissance Mission/Bident of Thassa will draw a LOT of cards here. Plumb the Forbidden in response to boardwipes keeps your hand full (instant speed on this is honestly amazing). Breena, the Demagogue isn't a faerie, but it goes well with goad and those counters add up FAST. Robe of the Archmagi because Alela is a warlock.

One last card I'd suggest is dirt cheap and highly underrated here. Nykthos Paragon. It's conveniently an enchantment that triggers Alela and Alela conveniently has lifelink. The low bar for this is 2 counters on everyone, then 4 the next turn, then 8... and that's assuming Alela's power was starting at 2.

Ok, I have several suggestions for you. I'll try to break it down by category and keep it budget friendly.

Card Draw (load up on this effect, it's one of the decks biggest strengths): Aerial Extortionist doubles as annoying removal while drawing cards. Breena, the Demagogue draws cards and beefs up your dudes quick. Starscream, Power Hungry  Flip because the monarchy is pretty easy to take back and hold here and he's an artifact so he comes with a buddy. Tegwyll, Duke of Splendor is an anthem effect for faeries that draws cards. Bident of Thassa/Reconnaissance Mission will draw a LOT of cards here. Plumb the Forbidden I typically use in response to boardwipes so I have a grip full of cards to redeploy. Tocasia's Welcome is self explanatory. Robe of the Archmagi since Alela is a warlock.

Buffs/Counters: Anduril, Narsil Reforged's 2x +1+1 counters on everyone is nuts here. Skyhunter Strike Force will give everyone +3+3 just for attacking all 3 opponents. Nykthos Paragon is conveniently an enchantment and Alelas has lifelink built in (this thing is deceptively disgusting here). Flowering of the White Tree is another good anthem effect here.

Vault of the Archangel is expensive to activate but you typically don't need to. This affects combat in your favor just with the unspoken threat of potential activation. Hold up mana, be committed to using it if needed, and cast stuff on your 2nd main if you didn't activate it.
