DreadKhan on Isshin, Two Heavens as One

If you want a cheaper $ option than Grand Abolisher (or would like another card that can do similar work), Wandering Archaic  Flip is a substantial tax on all opponent's instants/sorceries, but that tax matters most with countermagic, making everyone else's counters either very good (if you want the same thing countered for example), or very expensive (people usually consider Cancel unplayable for costing 3 mana). Archaic isn't as good at protecting your own stuff, but it's a way bigger effect generally.

You might also like Generous Gift over Disenchant, and I prefer Vanishing Verse over Fracture, but Verse is more of a competitive card maybe. Slayers' Stronghold might be nice, vigilance and haste are useful for WR.

For (potentially) untapped duals, there are a few cycles worth a look. Pathways are good (but no longer cheap unfortunately, they might go down after they rotate out of Standard though), Blightstep Pathway  Flip, Brightclimb Pathway  Flip, and Needleverge Pathway  Flip are all solid cards to keep an eye out for. Luxury Suite, Spectator Seating, and Vault of Champions are duals that usually come in untapped when it matters, and are considered among the best non-fetchable dual lands. You could try the new cycle from Innistrad, Haunted Ridge, Shattered Sanctum, and Sundown Pass are good as long as you're not running a low land count, 35 should probably work. While Sulfurous Springs is pricey, Caves of Koilos is cheap, Battlefield Forge isn't bad either, they're always untapped and by mid game you usually just use them for colourless and they have no downside. Concealed Courtyard, Inspiring Vantage, and Blackcleave Cliffs are very good, some are really expensive once again. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is a great way to make all your lands Swamps, handy for stuff like Cabal Coffers as well as just to fix your mana. Shadowblood Ridge is an untapped source of RB, which isn't a bad, but there is only the 1 in your wedge of colours, this land might be handy if you run a cycle where the RB land is really pricey.

Hope some of this is helpful, the deck seems pretty decent.

I see more counter-spells going in! When trying to pick out which ones are good, the 3cmc ones that do one random other thing are usually not worth it. You want to focus on 2cmc or less and when going over 2cmc you want modal spells that give us flexibility to do other things. This will especially be good in Braids if you are leaving a lot of mana open. So rather than cards like Didn't Say Please and Broken Concentration which are just glorified Cancel spells, instead go for Mystic Confluence, Sublime Epiphany, and Insidious Will, which give us other fun options when we don't need to counter. Muddle the Mixture is also an excellent counterspell which can also be used to tutor any 2cmc instant or sorcery you want. If we are in the 3cmc non-modal space, you should prioritize Spell Crumple and Hinder, which tuck the spell safely away on the bottom of your opponent's library rather than their graveyard where they can sometimes recur it. Also, Wizard's Retort is basically a second Counterspell with your commander, so I'd go for that!

Etrata, the Silencer, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur do nothing for mill and have no synergy with the rest of the deck. Nyxathid is based on opponent hand size & only Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur had any bearing on that. Lazav, the Multifarious only effects cards in your own graveyard and is legendary. Lastly, Xanathar, Guild Kingpin is cute, but has no synergy with other cards.

Jettison those and replace the ten creatures. Four Ruin Crab. Four Hedron Crab. Maybe a couple Maddening Cacophony.

Not sure how useful having single Cancel and Thought Collapse are. Memory Plunder would make better use of those non-creature spells that get milled.

Seems like this could do well once it gets online.
I would cut Cancel for Counterspell and Burn Down the House for Anger of the Gods. Winged Words seems bad with only 4 creatures. Vapor Snag or something similar might work better here. Augur of Bolas is another favorite of mine.

Hey, nice start on a budget with upgrading the Wilhelt precon. In the deck editor you can add CMDR tag to Wilhelt text making him the official Commander of your deck.

1x Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver *CMDR*

You currently have 2x Rooftop which can't have in Commander. Some cards here that are in my opinion not worth playing because there's better options on a budget.

Dreadhorde Invasion and Midnight Reaper are in the Wilhelt precon, consider adding them back in? They're some of the better cards in the precon because of they're repeatable effects especially Invasion with Wilhelt.

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

TriusMalarky on Baseline effect cards

sergiodelrio Neutralize versus Cancel -- there's a strictly better Cancel literally every set, and a strictly better Mind Rot almost every set, and a strictly better black 3 mana draw 2 lose 2 almost every set . . . To be fair, these 'baseline' cards tend to be unplayable, and their slightly better versions that have set mechanics are also unplayable in constructed, but they are great for limited

There are cards that seem to get printed with some frequency, but also regularly get strictly better versions. Cancel and Mind Rot are two examples, and Blaze would count if it ever got reprinted. There's nothing quite strictly better than Giant Growth. Shock is also in there. What other cards can you think of that have these common baseline effects?
