@NV_1980 thanks for the comment guys! I appreciate it.

You might actually be right about Brainstorm and the likes. I usually look for static card draw effects, which is why I opted for the three enchantments (Coastal Piracy, Bident of Thassa and Reconnaissance Mission). While it is no problem at all to trigger those since you're constantly attacking with flyers anyway, I think I didn't consider the tempo advantage Brainstorm provides, which is why I'll include it instead of Coastal Piracy. As for the other two, I'll keep them in mind. They're a tiny bit less useful as they're sorceries, but if I feel like swapping out some card draw, they're excellent candidates.

Regarding Sol Ring, my group has started not including it in many decks and so I felt comfortable exchanging it for some other cool, flavorful card. As for other mana rocks, I'm not directly opposed to including some, I just wouldn't know what to cut. I also never really ran into the problem of not having enough mana, since about five lands already enable you to play two cards per turn, thanks to the low mana curve of the deck. That always felt like a good rate to me so I see no need for artifact ramp, though as I said, if you can find the place for it I'm sure it works.

Thanks for the nice suggestions and have fun playing!

Lets say i have a Jace's Erasure on the battlefield and then cast Brainstorm. Milling ourselves this way, what order would the "putting cards on top" ability and the mill 3 ability go in? AKA would the cards put on top get milled, or the cards on top get milled before we put cards on top?

Hi m8,

Nicely done; this has been put together very well and looks fun to play. I do not know how fast your meta usually is, but there are ways to improve this deck's speed a bit more. You mentioned including lots of draw opportunities. This is indeed true, but a lot of them are conditional/require a trigger. I would consider adding stuff like Ponder, Preordain or Brainstorm which are all incredibly useful cards in the early-game and can be cast whenever you need them.

Your mana-curve looks wonderful, but I cannot help but notice that this deck hardly contains any rocks/ramp; not even a Sol Ring. This could also increase the deck's speed. I'm curious about your thoughts on that, as I suspect you left out ramp/rocks on purpose.

Keep up the nice builds. Cheers.

Hey nice deck! The way i see it you can focus more one one direction of this deck and use the other for support: either auras or equipment. Aura Focus: Add: Archon of Sun's Grace Ashiok's Erasure Boon Satyr Copy Enchantment Curiosity Darksteel Mutation Dissipation Field Hydra's Growth Gift of Paradise Hypnotic Siren Ichthyomorphosis Idyllic Tutor Kenrith's Transformation Plea for Guidance Psychic Impetus Unflinching Courage

Remove: Masterwork of Ingenuity Puresteel Paladin Explorer's Scope Indomitable Archangel Catti-brie of Mithral Hall Resolute Archangel Valiant Endeavor Serum Visions Brainstorm Angelic Gift Unsettled Mariner Cold-Eyed Selkie Military Intelligence

Equipment Focus: Add: Balan, Wandering Knight Behemoth Sledge Belt of Giant Strength Golem-Skin Gauntlets Kemba, Kha Regent Mask of Memory Mirrormade Paradise Mantle Prying Blade Quest for the Holy Relic Whispersilk Cloak

Remove: Resolute Archangel Ajani's Chosen Valiant Endeavor Gryff's Boon Angelic Gift Unsettled Mariner Military Intelligence Cold-Eyed Selkie Serum Visions Brainstorm Explorer's Scope Indomitable Archangel

And if you dont want to focus on one this would be a more Varied apporach incorporating a little from both Both Focus: Add: Fleecemane Lion Geist of Saint Traft Kiora's Follower Mirrormade Spirit Mantle Staggering Insight Utopia Sprawl Curiosity Beast Within Archon of Sun's Grace Curiosity Darksteel Mutation Dissipation Field Idyllic Tutor Unflinching Courage Behemoth Sledge Kemba, Kha Regent Mirrormade Quest for the Holy Relic Whispersilk Cloak Kenrith's Transformation

Hey, well done budget version of Silvers, nice Sliver Legion. You forgot Sol Ring.

Manaweft Sliver is another two drop mana Sliver. Shifting Sliver makes all your Slivers unblockable. Venom Sliver gives all deathtouch. These three Slivers could replace three of the higher CMC Slivers that have redundant effects. Blasphemous Act wrecks your opponents with Hivelord as Commander.


Consider more draw?

Wild Pair and Pyre of Heroes are powerful budget repeatable effects to tutor for and cheat Silvers on the battlefield.

Consider cutting a few of the lesser Slivers for more draw?


Nice Shock lands. On a budget you can do better than the Gain lands such as Blossoming Sands and Cycle lands such as Sheltered Thicket. Consider the Tango lands? Since there's 14 basic lands here.

Good luck with your deck.

Nicely built but I do have a few suggestions.

Ramp: Pentad Prism is the only 2 drop rock that'll net +2 different colored mana (albeit once). Copy Artifact doubles as any mana rock (or Strionic Resonator #2).

Haste Enablers: Need for Speed, and/or Ashling's Prerogative (especially since all your creatures are even cmc) deserve a spot over Fervor.

Topdeck Manipulation: Brainstorm (had to do a double take... how is this not already in the deck?) and Ancestral Knowledge (before Narset it finds mana rocks and after Narset it sets up absurd turns).

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Liszt on Do cards know of events …

First of: The title is a bit misleading, since I assume a card like Oath of Liliana also triggers if it entered the battlefield after the planeswalker.

But does it also work in the following scenario: In my upkeep I use Alchemist's Refuge to flash in a Sylvan Library and in response to that I cast a Brainstorm. What happens now in my Draw Step if I choose to draw 2 cards off Library? Does the Library know of the cards I drew off Brainstorm (which resolved before the Library)? In other words, would I be able to choose 2 cards I drew off the Brainstorm to put back for the Sylvan Library? Which rule is applied here?
