xander11 i have been considering dropping saheeli and focusing on speed, but I gotta keep the Browbeat . The deck needs card draw opportunity, and worst case if i dont get that, i get 5 burn damage. And in a Doublecast situation its brutal. Its a cheap 3 card draw and a cheap 5 damage either way the opponent chooses. Id say out of my other instants and sorceries its one that I particularly would want to draw. Maybe i can cut something else and run more copies of fewer cards, but id cut 1 or 2 Doublecast or even an Electrolyze before i go below 3 Browbeat . Maybe more plays will demonstrate that its too slow but it seems really promising in this deck.

Greetings, human! Below are my suggestions; feel free to heed/ignore them as you choose.

In EDH, playtesting with your meta is really the only way to know how much counter, burn and card-draw you need. That being said, you typically want a cantrip and a counter in your opening hand, which means running approximately 5 - 10 of each is a good idea. I think Preordain should definitely be in your deck alongside your Ponder , and Brainstorm becomes astronomically better with shuffle effects. Although the Zendikar and Onslaught fetches can be very expensive, cheaper alternatives definitely exist: Terramorphic Expanse is functionally identical with the Evolving Wilds I see you're running; the slow fetches (like Flood Plain and Rocky Tar Pit ) are on the table; and Ash Barrens is around $3 these days. Aside from Preordain , some card-draw/filtering spells I advise at least considering are: Impulse , Chart a Course , Faithless Looting , Chemister's Insight , Archmage's Charm , Think Twice , Oona's Grace , Frantic Search , Sleight of Hand , Pull from Tomorrow , Fact or Fiction , Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise . Slate of Ancestry is an artifact source of repeatable card advantage.

I suggest Faithless Looting , Chemister's Insight , Think Twice and Oona's Grace because you can cast them from your graveyard. This will give you extra triggers off of Kykar, Wind's Fury and Jeskai Ascendancy . Similarly, if you choose to run cards like Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor (which I highly suggest you do), these cards will get additional triggers as well. Murmuring Mystic is another creature to consider, as is Taigam, Ojutai Master .

Burn spells are tough in EDH, if only because you have three times as many opponents as usual, and they all have double the usual life total. So burn is typically going to be spot removal or mass removal rather than to-the-face, like in Modern. Generally, I do not recommend running many one-for-ones in a format where you're facing three opponents rather than one; the only one-for-one I highly suggest is Swords to Plowshares . Electrolyze is an instant that does not cost card advantage, so I advise this too. Mass-removal, like Wrath of God , Pyroclasm or Supreme Verdict is generally much more successful. However, because of your general and the nature of your deck, you'll likely want to only run one or two board-wipes. Things like Shattering Spree , By Force , Dust to Dust , Return to Dust , Grasp of Fate and Vandalblast are also worth considering.

Counter magic is good. I advise adding a few spells to your current package. Consider the following: Swan Song , Dispel , Exclude , Unified Will , Remand (maybe -- it's a meta call), Negate , Flusterstorm , and, provided you have access, Cryptic Command , Force of Will , Mana Drain and Pact of Negation .

An area that I see as being capable of a lot of improvement is your mana-base. Though the best fixing is, of course, wildly expensive, affordable options exist. Steam Vents , Hallowed Fountain and Sacred Foundry are all about $10 or so these days, as are City of Brass and Mana Confluence . I personally like Reflecting Pool , Exotic Orchard and Forbidden Orchard as well.

As Foretold is at least worth considering. Aetherflux Reservoir is, I think, probably better than Sentinel Tower , though if your meta is filled with creatures you can nail with the Sentinel Tower then you may wish to keep it. If you want to go on the aggro plan, Supreme Phantom is also worth considering, as is Intangible Virtue . Kindred Discovery is good if you name "Spirits." If you are like me and don't have ethical qualms about infinite combos, Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal is a good way to make infinite tokens if you have enough rocks out.

Speaking of rocks, I like your current suite. I'd also consider Mind Stone , Coldsteel Heart (maybe), Fellwar Stone and Everflowing Chalice . Arcane Signet is coming out soon, and that's definitely worth an include.

Right. That's all from me. Good luck with deck-building!

Interesting deck idea, I like it!

The only concern I have is with the 3x Kolaghan's Commands. I think 8 creatures do not justify 3 copies mainboard imho. When there is no creature in your grave and you're not playing against artifacts the card really loses its flexibility. Maybe reduce to 1-2 copies main. You might want to look at Electrolyze

  • Sol ring is not modern legal.
  • 75 cards means your deck will be less consistent than a 60 card deck. However you can have a sideboard of 15 cards maybe consider pulling some of those cards out.
  • You have a lot of creature cards that get you vaule off your spells. However 23 is a lot of creatures when you want to cast spells. You may want to trim cards there. Espically the higher cmc ones like Sun-Crowned Hunters and Riddlemaster Sphinx
  • consider spell cards like Rift Bolt Searing Blaze and Electrolyze
  • although i said to trim creature cards Monastery Swiftspear is an amazing one drop due to haste, and can get really big from your spells.
  • Firemind's Foresight is great because it lets you tutor for cards you want however its 7 mana which is a lot espically when you want to cast a lot of spells. For ideas for cheap spells (cantrips) i would recommend looking at modern storm. The entire deck is build around what your doing. Its something to consider.
  • You have a fair number of gold cards, and cards that are double blue or red, so running only basics can be hard. It keep things in the lower budget you could run izzet guildgate. Cascade Bluffs isn't to expensive i think either.

I'm trying to keep the budget low, so no Snapcaster Mage or Path to Exile I am considering Mission Briefing , and Electrolyze . Logic Knot is essentialy a bad dissolve, and Remand is $6.

GofyTomcat1 on Esper Tempo

You're at 57 cards main deck so far. I recommend adding 3-4 Mission Briefing or Snapcaster Mage (Depending on budget).

I'd replace Dissolve with either 2 more Leaks, or something like Remand or Logic Knot .

The Gut Shot and Winterflame are better off as 2 Electrolyze

Anticipate should be Path to Exile as there are some creatures in Modern that your burn won't kill.

achilles777 on Eye of the Storm

I would say maybe cutting Electrolyze , Fire / Ice , Fortune's Favor , Geistblast & Reverberate . Liliana of the Dark Realms seems out of place to be honest. I am not sure what you're budget is but you may also want to consider running Cyclonic Rift , Sensei's Divining Top and a not so expensive but better filter card Frantic Search . The has been a lot of discussion with the Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top combo.
