If you don't know about Knowledge Exploitation I would highly recommend picking up that one

Here are my thoughts - many of these have already been echoed by Balaam__ above.

  • Modern is a very fast format. Most miderange decks typically want to be running cards with cmc between 1-3, with a very few cards at cmc4 (look at Jund, for example, that only runs Bloodbraid Elf and then lots of low-costing cards). In that vein, I think you need to look at lowering your curve. I get that some of your cards can be cast for cheaper with Prowl, but I think you'd only want to keep the very best of these.

  • On the above note, personally I would drop Zareth San, the Trickster and Notorious Throng entirely. Their cost is waaay too high, especially in a deck with 22 lands, and they don't do enough to justify their spots. I would also drop a few Earwig Squad - it feels like you want to be playing either 2 or 3.... maybe mainboard 2 and have a 3rd in the sideboard against decks that you really need to disable?

  • I notice you also have Agent of Treachery and Knowledge Exploitation in the sideboard, and I would suggest ditching both of these, neither are particularly strong and both demand too much mana.

  • I would echo what has already been said above that some good cmc1 cards would be very useful to the the deck. Consider Fatal Push , Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek . You probably want at least 8ish cards that are 1cmc so your first turn isn't wasted.

  • On the subject of lands, I would recommend swapping both Sunken Hollow and Rogue's Passage for both of Darkslick Shores and Drowned Catacomb . The Hollow just has too many scenarios where it's going to slow you down, and the Passage is both going to hurt your mana base, and be unlikely to get any benefits (you need 5 lands in play and nothing else to do, to make use of it). If the beforementioned cards are too expensive, i'd suggest just running basics over what's happening now.

  • If you have the money, I'd strongly suggest ditching Thieves' Fortune in place of Aether Vial . It'll make your deck multiple-times stronger than where it is now, and and also Vial will be able to slot seamlessly into any other future tribal-based decks you make, if that is your preferred way of playing. Another option for this deck in particular could be Bitterblossom . I do think Thieves' Fortune is probably a card you'd want to ditch, though perhaps this is a slot that could also be happily consumed by the beforementioned 1cmc cards too.

  • For sideboard tech, these cards may be worth considering: Mystical Dispute , Aether Gust , Collective Brutality , Nihil Spellbomb , Drown in the Loch , Spell Snare

Monomanamaniac on Anowon - Rogue Tribal - $500 Budget

Great build overall. It's hard to think of what you should add or cut but i think your choices need to be cmc based. Your deck is currently sitting at 2.89, but if you can get it below 2.5 you'll be far more consistent. Stuff like Vanquisher's Banner and Coat of Arms are great, but they cost a lot and can bog down your turns. Keeper of Keys is another example of this, and a card I'm honestly a bit disappointed in. I wish it said beginning of combat because an upkeep trigger for monarch isn't very reliable. Knowledge Exploitation isn't really what i would be going for, even if it just costs its prowl cost it's not very exciting. If you really want to tutor for an instant or sorcery you should think of putting in Mystical Tutor , Merchant Scroll , Fabricate , Vampiric Tutor , or Demonic Tutor . You also seem to have a rather high concentration of equipment spells, might suggest removing a couple, maybe Bloodforged Battle-Axe for starters.

As for additions i might suggest some great rocks like Mana Crypt , Thought Vessel , or even Fellwar Stone . You could think of adding Changeling Outcast as a very cheap unblockable rogue. You could think about Drown in the Loch for that flexible removal. Then there's the ability to draw more cards with Bident of Thassa , or Reconnaissance Mission though you'd be flirting with that cmc issue again.

Besides that i can't think of much, and none of my suggestions takes budget into consideration. Seems like it's a very well put together list i don't think i could've put together a better one

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is amazing. I have had every players Sol Ring multiple times just for fun. Just exiling combo pieces is useful.

Cloak and Dagger is good. Knowledge Exploitation can change the game.

Ahh, I remember when Sen Triplets was popular in groups where I live. Still a heavy hitter! Might I suggest Faerie Artisans to clone your opponents' creatures and get artifact triggers, and maybe Knowledge Exploitation for some instant or sorcery fun?

Notorious Throng is janky, but if you want to step you jank up to the next level, give Knowledge Exploitation a try!

Jhoira's never been a commander I enjoy due to the low interaction, but I really like your choice of spells like Knowledge Exploitation to grab your opponents stuff.

Personally, I prefer Kozilek, the Great Distortion for Eldrazi tribal and favor Jodah, Archmage Eternal , Golos, Tireless Pilgrim or Ramos, Dragon Engine for "big mana" decks, due to the more interactive playstyles and access to more colors. Of course, go with what you feel and make your own decisions, there's lots of commander options!

Maybe a good idea would be to make sure your playgroup knows you're not playing cards like Jokulhaups or Obliterate , since the threat of those from a Jhoira deck can make them target you.

Anyway, have fun with it!

You can see them. They are somewhere there. Waiting in their sleep. And when they wake up - they will bring interplanar Chaos and destruction.

Prepare yourselves, though shall they spare no one.

After finding Jhoira of the Ghitu , I was thinking what needs Suspend the most. Obvious answer - high mana cost cards. And what's more expensive, than Eldrazi? Hmm, I have no idea. And that's how the deck has been made. Few cards with "put on the battlefield", like Belbe's Portal or Quicksilver Amulet , few "without paying mana cost", like Omniscience , Sunbird's Invocation or Temporal Aperture and with enough mana rocks Planar Bridge or, of course Eye of Ugin .

Additionally, I like to play someone else's spells, so there is few stealing cards, like: Knowledge Exploitation or Reversal of Fortune .

I have spicied it up with some returning sorceries/instant cards, like Mystic Retrieval or Narset's Reversal .

Of course not to forget draw cards, but it's obvious in blue decks :)

And last and most important part - cards, that are taking off the time counters from suspended cards - imagine card:Omnisciense with Suspend 4 on turn 3 :) And then you have, for example Timecrafting and bang, t4 card:Omnisciense. And if not that, then maybe Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger ? And there is more removing time counters, like Clockspinning or Fury Charm or Timebender .

That do you think? Does the deck have a chance?

I am looking forward to see your feedback :)
