Lazav machine broke.

I'd recommend cutting Blood Operative, Dimir Spybug, Nightveil Sprite, and Whispering Snitch. Surviel is a fun mechanic, but it doesn't do much in commander. If you do want to keep the Surviel theme, you should put in Disinformation Campaign

I'd recommend cutting Dissolve for Muddle the Mixture. Most of the time the cards you want to really counter in commander are usually instant and sorcieries, and Muddle the Mixture helps you tutor out your Mindcrank

I recommend Taigam, Sidisi's Hand. He helps with the mill theme, is in your colours, and can act as removal if you need it. He's basically like Underrealm Lich

100% try to put Notion Thief, especially with all your windfall effects.

Mind Grind is a fun mill card. Cards like Psychic Corrosion mill a TON with the hand replacement effect you've got

With all your milling Drown in the Loch becomes really good. I'd cut Devious Cover-Up for it.

Also, you should put in Darkwater Catacombs, Sunken Hollow, Temple of the False God, Talisman of Dominance, and Tainted Isle

I'd cut Commander Sphere for Mindstone

Hey, thanks so much for the upvote and the comment!

I'll certainly test it!

That said, at a first glance it seems to me to be a change I'm not so sure about. Mainly cause, although it counters the spell, I get nothing in addition. That's diferent from Dispel where I'm guaranteed to have a two mana counter and maybe activate that synergy with Mystic Sanctuary. Part of what makes Ionize a decent replacement is that I gain virtual card advantage*, something that this version lacks profundly, once it doesn't have acess to draw spells... Wizard's Retort seems like in its best will be a Counterspell (and that's great), in its worst will be an underperformative Dissolve (an that's not great).

Of course empirical experience could reveal otherwise and for that I'll do the tests

*By having a Shock attached to the Counterspell

Even if this is a budget deck, Sinister Sabotage, Dissolve, and Dissipate are all cheap alternatives to Cancel. Even Manalith is strictly better than Obelisk of Grixis, and Chromatic Lantern and Coalition Relic come with upside. If those cost too much, Mana Geode is still better. Please make these upgrades. They will make the deck better. Love the description! Why does TappedOut think this is a standard deck?

There is a lot of things in this deck that I see can be upgraded or removed.

First, I'll suggest some cards you could put in.

I'll start out with suggesting some boardwipes. Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Planar Cleansing , and Flood of Tears are some things you should look into.

More ways to stop the opponent's creatures would help. Lawmage's Binding , Frogify , and Kasmina's Transmutation stop creatures from using their abilities. Immolating Glare , Conclave Tribunal and Path to Exile are also things you should consider.

More counterspells would help too. Counterspell , Disallow , Devious Cover-Up , Void Shatter , and Absorb will stop your opponents from playing the spells they want to play.

I have a couple creature suggestions as well. God-Eternal Kefnet can cast your instants and sorceries twice, and Angel of Grace can save you from the brink.

A few miscellaneous cards that you should consider are Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Control Magic , Lightning Greaves , and Sphinx's Insight .

Some cards to cut would be:

Flux Channeler , Cancel , No Escape , Dissolve , Blind Obedience (since it has in the card and therefore cannot be used since your commander is ), and Psychic Corrosion .

Hope this helps!

I see your case on Transmute, and it’s a strong argument. I won’t say no :)

I mentioned some expensive cards in case you’re looking to upgrade in the future, but they are by no means important right now when Plague Wind works well too.

As far as your Q1 goes, counter spells for less than 3cmc will always be stronger because you can hold less mana in reserve. However, I like Psychic Strike because it doesn’t require double of the same mana type, making it easier to cast even if it is more cmc. I do prefer a hard counter all type over, say, Swan Song that only targets specific types, but Negate will do a lot of work even if it can’t hit creatures. It has the added benefit of not needing double mana again. I think it’s more of a preference. Having the OG Counterspell though is probably still a good idea. If you’re looking at 3cmc counters, though, always get one with an added effect - Dissolve > Cancel

DemonDragonJ on Theros: Beyond Death Spoilers

I cannot believe that there has not yet been a thread made for spoilers for Theros: Beyond Death, so here is such a thread.

Here is the official image gallery, and here is an article about the mechanics.

I shall now comment on specific cards.

I am not particularly happy that “demigod” is now a creature type; was not “god” sufficient? Also, why is only Daxos’s toughness equal to his controller’s devotion to white? Would he be too powerful if his power increased, as well? I also dislike how his life-gaining ability cares about only creatures that are controlled by his controller; would he have been too powerful if his ability triggered from all creatures, regardless of their controllers?

Why is it that there are creatures that have abilities that trigger when they are targeted by spells, but the heroic mechanic has not actually returned? What was the point of not bringing back the mechanic?

The ability of eidolon of philosophy is very nice, but also very expensive; I understand that it can be used as an instant, but seven mana is still a very high cost for drawing three cards.

Memory drain is too expensive for its effect; I personally feel that it could have cost 1 mana less, since Dissolve is very underpowered, in my mind.

I am displeased that Setessan champion is not an enchantment, herself, since she shall not trigger her own constellation ability. Also, mono-green is not supposed to have card draw that is not related to creatures, so I believe that she should have been green/white.

Why are the escape costs of some of these cards so expensive? Is it because retuning from the dead is supposed to be difficult and rare?

I like The Akroan War, but I noticed that there is no artwork in the text box, which all the sagas from Domianria had; why did WotC change that? Did the artwork make the text difficult to read?

Who is Klothys? Is she the new red/green deity? If so, I will be pleased to see a red/green creature who cares about more than simply brute force and destruction.

The first group of previews were overall very nice, so I shall be awaiting further previews.
