Setakat on Adeliz leads some angry Wizards

JANKYARD_DOG Docent of Perfection  Flip is on my wishlist for this deck, only problem is finding a copy (probably going to have to order & get it shipped from the US). Thanks for the suggestion of Kasmina, I'll include it when I'm updating here & see how it fits.

RNR_Gaming Thanks for the suggestions. I'm not sure on rules regarding proxies with my current group, but based on what I've seen, I suspect most people would be fine with me running with a few proxies to trial, or to fill space while I'm waiting for the actual card to arrive. Unfortunately about half your suggested budget options I'd have to buy from overseas, and I don't think a dozen+ proxies will be allowed, so I'll have to look at even more budget picks in the short term (like Lightning Strike instead of Lightning Bolt) while I try sort out exctly what to buy from overseas.

multimedia Thanks for all the advice - its definitely given me a bit to think on. I had been considering pivoting a bit more towards a more solo strategy with Adeliz, but wanted to get a few more games in to get a bit more of a feel towards the level of creature/commander hate going on with my new group. I'll probably drop down to about 12-15 wizards, keeping the current ones that self pump with the rest being utility/draw of some sort. I definitely do want to try and push my current mana curve left a bit more. Mystic Sanctuary is a land I'm trying to get, but by the time I see the instock notification email, its sold out.

gavriel1136 I'm still taking suggestions, although price isn't really the deciding factory, availability is. Nearly all of the suggestions over $1 (TCG price) none of the online merchants in my country have stock of (unless I feel like forking over $50+ for a special foil promo version) so I'll have to buy in from overseas, which in the current day & age has its own challenges. In hindsight, I picked a rather bad time to try getting back into MTG after a decade long break.

I'll probably start tearing this deck down here in a few days & updating it here, so I know what I can get locally in the short term & what I'll have to buy overseas in the long. Thanks for all the feedback so far, still learning my way around Commander, so getting some more experienced insight has very helpful.

Perhaps consider Docent of Perfection  Flip & Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor for wizard tokens and support.

Hey, have you thought about Docent of Perfection  Flip? I think it could be strong. Clearly this is a very well thought out deck. +1!

I just built these two together the other night, and I love seeing how other people get on similar ideas and brew like this. I ended up taking apart a sub-par Baral deck to build this, so there are a few differences and possible card ideas I thought you might consider. Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal are always good for mono-blue decks that need to bring a lot of mana and have enough supporting artifacts. Thassa, God of the Sea has a passive scry ability and can give unblockability when needed. Talrand, Sky Summoner, Murmuring Mystic, and Docent of Perfection  Flip are great ways to build a flyer army from playing instants and sorceries. Eyes Everywhere, Sphinx of Foresight, and Retreat to Coralhelm have great passive scry abilities. I like the idea of tossing Psychic Impetus on an opponents creature for free draws on other turns, or just throw it on one of your own creatures. Finally, I think the only other cards I had that are notable are Spark Double and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries. I cut a lot of my more costly (mana-wise) one-time scry cards, and a few of my lower cost scry spells that don't do much on their own or arent gonna get great value sans the commanders.

Accelerate, Crimson Wisps, and Magmatic Insight, and Needle Drop are all options for more red cantrips.

As was just recommended Docent of Perfection  Flip and Metallurgic Summonings are both good Young Pyro type cards.

I think after taking out Assemble and all those cards, then replacing Improbable and Mad Ratter, your deck as far as its main strategy and win cons goes is pretty solid. At this point I believe it would be a good move to work towards rounding out the deck with general purpose removal/hate/counters, because you should have no problem netting wins with the tools you have, but you also need to make sure you get to use your tools and your opponents don't get to use theirs. 2 more counters of your choice, and the aforementioned Swords to Plowshares and Chaos Warp would be my personal recommendations.

Adding in Banishing Knack also sounds like a good idea just for the sake of consistency.

I believe as this deck stands it's just about finished. :^) There's always room for tweaks and whatnot but I think you've got all the pieces for success put together and now you just gotta playtest it. I would be wary about adding too much more, or incorporating other strats that spread your deck thin and end up weakening your main focus. Even if you took out a few more cards I don't think you're working with a lot of potential slots for new additions, so you gotta make sure those slots count and really enhance what you're trying to do as a whole. This is the part of deck building I hate lol. Never enough card slots. :^(

With Young Pyro, Mentor, Talrand, and Saheeli all making tokens for each cast, I don't think you need to worry about it too much. That's quite a lot right there.

But Murmuring Mystic, Metallurgic Summonings, Docent of Perfection  Flip and to an extent Rise from the Tides are cards you could consider.
