heckproof, I like the idea, I simply don't think that Bloodwater Entity is strong enough in the current meta, if it was for two mana or was a 2/3 maybe, however the deck feels tight on slots and I am not sure what would be removed. To fill that same sort of roll Noxious Revival and Reclaim fulfill the same purpose, I'll be it without a body to leave behind, at least it provides the role for a cheaper cost and can retrieve any card at that.

Bloodwater Entity is extremely useful here. Its on legs so you can flicker it or copy it. Other topdeck manipulation creatures Omenspeaker Sage Owl Spire Owl Sage of Epityr Augury Owl

Cards that can abuse topdeck being known Psychic Battle Chaos Warp Spark of Creativity Erratic Explosion Prophetic Flamespeaker Abbot of Keral Keep Augur of Bolas Dark-Dweller Oracle Experimental Frenzy

Cards that let you see topdeck Lantern of Insight Goblin Spy Future Sight Magus of the Future

Cathartic Adept and similar mill effects can help you move past undesirable topdeck cards. Gives control when you can see enemy topdecks Pyxis of Pandemonium Ghoulcaller's Bell Drowner Initiate Hedron Crab Jace's Erasure Drowned Secrets Codex Shredder

If you're looking for combo potential, Memory Lapse is pretty filthy with putting your spell from hand to top of library, and it raises your storm QUITE A BIT. Hinder can do similar tricks.

Thank you for your kind comment. I'm glad you like the deck!

I've only ever been disappointed by Bloodwater Entity whenever I've cast it. It's just too slow. It also doesn't work with Tome the way you think: you draw first as it's cast, then you stack the top of your deck as it ETBs. You'd have to draw again to get the recurred card, and of course you won't usually have Tome since it's a unique effect and we're not running any artifact tutors. It's entirely possible that Stormchaser Mage isn't good enough for Commander but it's a Wizard, so the floor for how good it has to be on its own isn't too high.

I would strongly recommend you don't take Gorgon Flail out. When attached to our Commander, it gives our Red spells each a free Wrath of God that upgrades to Plague Wind if we have Levitation out. This is actually the kind of effect that the deck wants even more of; Basilisk Collar would be amazing if it weren't so pricey.

As for counterspells, I don't want to go too heavy on them. The deck wants to be active rather than reactive. Creature-only counterspells are particularly iffy since we have so many ways of killing creatures once they've resolved. Ionize would certainly be a consideration, but I don't think it's worth the $1. If this deck wants it at all, it's only very marginally better than Cancel .

I like this deck a lot, especially for how budget-friendly it is--that makes me really happy :D

I have always wanted to like Stormchaser Mage but have found kind of limited uses for him in Commander. I might consider Bloodwater Entity and trade Stormchaser Mage 's haste for the recursion of Bloodwater Entity , although there is the drawback of taking sorceries/instants out of your graveyard and not even putting them directly into your hand (unless you have Tome of the Guildpact out). I might also take out Gorgon Flail to put in another gold card to give Tome of the Guildpact more mileage and to trigger the commander more. Maybe I'd put in something like Essence Backlash or Ionize for better control, though I don't like how expensive Essence Backlash is in terms of mana. (the addition of an instant rather than an artifact also makes Beacon Bolt and Enigma Drake go farther, and if your counterspell gets counterspelled, you can Expansion it to counter the counter and make more triggers happen...)

These are my thoughts, but well done nonetheless, I love this deck.

I have definetely considered it. I don't find that it has that big of an upside compared with Enigma Drake (wich isn't even in the deck), but through some playtest I found that you usually run out of threats (mainly Spellheart Chimera), and that Bloodwater Entity is really underperforming, I would like to try and substiute it with with Crackling Drake to test it.

Thank you for your suggestion.
