Frozen AEther has very little synergy with the rest of the deck

Greater Auramancy the card is good and great enchantment protection but it is not needed here

Sphere of Safety not enough synergy for the deck, I would say good in a 20+ enchantment deck, otherwise just use Ghostly Prison or Norn's Annex

Hedron Archive the card draw is nice but you have card draw built into your commander, I would use the 3 cost mana rock that taps for 2. Worn Powerstone

Burnished Hart maybe, good ramp for your colors, but is just a maybe

Solemn Simulacrum very good, but I think you can have a better card in the spot, no real way to abuse/recure him

Vampiric Tutor great card but more of a legacy card. I would use Demonic Tutor which also has no card disadvantage

Mystical Tutor same as above, Merchant Scroll

Enlightened Tutor same as above Idyllic Tutor

Cut 3 lands (dont need fetches, they are nice but not a necessity Polluted Delta , Marsh Flats , Flooded Strand , Prismatic Vista , Silent Clearing )

Some notable cards I would include are Sphinx's Revelation , Suture Priest , Auriok Champion

Deck Changes:

  • Taurean Mauler : He big mean and super easy to block. Even though he is technically an angel, he lacks the power most other angles have. Very little way to give trample.
  • Godo, Bandit Warlord : Six CMC fetch an equipment and cheat it out to battlefield, seems good and has combo potential. However, is a dead card early game when needing equipment to protect and generate value. Maby? Still very torn over cutting this card.
  • Spinerock Knoll : Hard to activate and never have the mana open to activate it when needed. Most of the time it hit a low CMC card and it not very useful.
  • Rugged Prairie : More room for Basic/Fetch.
  • Clifftop Retreat : More room for Basic/Fetch.
  • Inkmoth Nexus : Only man-land in the deck to equip and swing almost never comes up and only killed with this little guy once. Low performance.

Argy well I'm really wanting to be apart of something other than commander. Modern seemed way to expensive to get into definitely with everyone telling me I needed to get cards like Flooded Strand and Misty Rainforest which is a little rich for my blood, and clearly Oko, Thief of Crowns is chokong out standard.

I'll be honest I don't completely understand pioneer, but what I can gather is that its like modern just with more recent sets. If there are format rules I don't know them. Is there away I can convert my Angelic Gift of Grace standard deck to pioneer??

i agree with keevel Darkness works well 1 mana to buy you another turn.

also you do not necessarily need to be limited by your on colour fetch lands, running a couple of Flooded Strand could up your landfall triggers and thin your deck, using them to tutor for just the basic island or the watery grave.

Shelldock Isle may be a slower land but it can really help when their deck is low and you are running out of steam.

Mind Funeral i would fill out your playset as they are extremely potent against most modern decks with all their fetch lands. For example my modern deck plays 19 lands of which 7 are fetch lands. by turn 3 it is possible that excluding any mill you have done my land count could be as low as 13!

Hey, good start for a budget deck. Nice Rhystic Study and Flooded Strand :)

Roon is the engine of the deck, but he's a five drop which makes the engine pretty slow without more ramp. Consider adding more low mana cost 1-3 CMC ramp?

Roon can benefit from cards that can untap a creature giving you more activations of his blink ability.

There's several budget lands to consider adding to upgrade the manabase.

Command Tower is a budget staple of multicolored decks. Dual lands that have interaction with basic lands are good when playing a lot of basic lands.

Budget tutors can help to search for an put a certain creature into your hand or onto the battlefield. These tutors let you play less high mana cost creatures instead use a tutor to search for one when you have to the mana to cast it.

If you like any of these suggestions then I offer more advice about what to cut. Good luck with your deck.

Wow, lots of good card here. It's not every day I see a Candelabra of Tawnos :)

I don't think you're taking enough advantage of having a sac outlet in the Command Zone. Grimgrin's no mana cost sac is his strongest ability.

These Zombies give you value when another Zombie dies, when one is saced by Grimgrin.

Some other upgrades to consider:

Black is too important of the color to have in the early game because the majority of Zombies are black not blue. 10x Island is a lot I suggest cutting lots of Islands and replacing them with other playable Dimir dual lands.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Divination
  • Scour All Possibilities
  • Gruesome Fate
  • Return from Extinction
  • Exclude
  • Defile
  • Walking Corpse
  • Tattered Mummy
  • Graveshifter
  • Gravedigger
  • Ingenious Infiltrator
  • Stronghold Assassin
  • Necromaster Dragon
  • Argentum Armor
  • Door of Destinies
  • Grave Betrayal
  • Finale of Eternity
  • Kindred Dominance
  • Ashnod's Altar

Good luck with your deck.

Duals Volcanic Island , Plateau , Tundra > fetches Scalding Tarn , Arid Mesa , Flooded Strand > shocks Steam Vents , Sacred Foundry , Hallowed Fountain > rainbows Mana Confluence , City of Brass , Tarnished Citadel

Good mana bases are expensive; basically, if something is out of budget look at the next thing. :) hope this helps some.
