YES! I built an Edric, Spymaster of Trest deck with only commons and uncommon creatures that were small and hard to block. Cards like Faerie Seer , Slither Blade , and Invisible Stalker make some great card draw, and your wincons can be things like Overrun and Triumph of the Hordes . Throw in some non-rare counterspells like Counterspell and Arcane Denial and you're off to the races.

Pyre seems just okay in a spellstutter deck, to me. Faerie Seer seems good, too.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Good build on such a low a budget. Realistically to make much improvements you're going to have to be able to spend more than $30 for your deck.
My advice is to lower the mana curve by adding more low CMC Wizards and more low CMC instants and sorceries that draw cards. End the curve with two five drops Wizards: Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Shipwreck Dowser and one six drop Archetype of Imagination. I suggest playing double the amount or more of instants and sorceries than Wizards because technically you don't need other Wizards because Adeliz can pump herself. Still have a strong base of low CMC Wizards, just a smaller one.
Since Adeliz can pump herself and has flying she is really your best win condition doing 21 Commander damage to each opponent. The problem with Adeliz is she doesn't provide card advantage only pump therefore you need a lot of other cards that draw cards to fuel the pump.
Some Wizards can help for card advantage:
- Windrider Wizard: lets you draw each time you cast an instant or sorcery or even a Wizard and he has flying which makes him a threat to attack. If just about every card you cast draws you a card then that's a nice advantage to keep drawing instants/sorceries/Wizards.
- Burning Prophet: repeatable scry is powerful when you want to draw certain cards and not lands or other cards. She can filter away lands so that you draw instants/sorceries/Wizards.
Consider more low CMC Wizards? That way you can establish a Wizard army quicker and get faster benefits from Adeliz with other Wizards. More low CMC flying Wizards can benefit much more from the pump from Adeliz because they can more easily do combat damage to an opponent:
- Siren Stormtamer
- Wingcrafter: way to give a Wizard who doesn't have evasion flying such as Burning Prophet and soulbond can change creatures.
- Faerie Seer
- Kaza, Roil Chaser
- Lightning Stormkin
- Dreadhorde Arcanist
With more low CMC flying Wizards then cards such as Bident of Thassa and Reconnaissance Mission can draw a lot of cards since you draw a card for each creature who does combat damage to a player. This is a way to keep refilling your hand with instants/sorceries by attacking with Wizards even if you don't have instants/sorceries to cast. Flying Wizards are still going to do combat damage to a player and draw cards. Shared Animosity is repeatable pump for each attacking Wizard you control. This repeatable effect is in addition too any pump that Adeliz does.
Izzet has a wealth of good low CMC budget instants/sorceries that draw cards that are staples of Commander:
- Preordain, Serum Visions, Ponder
- Brainstorm, Faithless Looting
- Windfall, Frantic Search
- Impulse, Chart a Course, Thrill of Possibility
Some budget lands upgrades to consider:
- Command Tower: staple of Commander for two or more color decks.
- Unclaimed Territory
- Path of Ancestry: repeatable scry when you cast a Wizard.
- Shivan Reef
- Mystic Sanctuary: recur a instant or sorcery from your graveyard.
Good luck with your deck.

Nice deck, happy to give this a +1! It's a really solid budget build, but I do have a couple of recommendations.
You also have a LOT of blinkers, especially for how fast you're going to be filtering through your deck. I'd cut a couple of Flickerwisp and Cloudshift for some 1 mana counters, like Miscast or Stubborn Denial, to protect your board against removal.
I'm always a fan of seeing Splicers in Modern, and I really liked this build for them. Keep up the great work!

Crystal Ball is excellent as a draw 2 with Eligeth, Crossroads Augur in play. Also, Faerie Seer is another good scry source that also ups your attacking flyers count. Mystic Speculation is repeatable scry because of buyback and is a draw 3 with Eligeth out.

I had initially considered Faerie Seer for that coveted 1 drop slot, but ideally I think a Thoughtseize is the best Turn 1 play. The ability to scry from the Seer would be nice, but I don’t feel justified in removing anything to make room for them. And after the first couple turns their inherent value plummets. They can’t be flashed in, and once Bitterblossom enters play they’re superseded by the tokens.
Hypnotic Sprite came to my attention just as I put the finishing touches to the deck. I briefly considered retooling it, but decided against it. It’s a high utility card, to be sure, but the lack of flash is what did it in for me. I designed this build to be highly reactive; most of the cards can be played on the opponent’s turn if necessary. Hypnotic Sprite absolutely could (and should) find its way into another faerie deck, maybe a mono blue one if I ever get around to building one.
