From what you've described, there are a few options for decks you could build- the great thing is that you don't have to commit too much to any one of them, by carefully picking non-budget cards that support the playstyle you want, while remembering that you can just change everything else.

Yes, miracle cards should always be cheated in and are build-around. Its absolutely not for everyone.

Bitterblossom is a spectacular card, but most of the matchups blue/red has cheaper/more effective options for- spending on sorting out mana with Shivan Reef / Spirebluff Canal will win you more games.

If you want to run bitterblossom, look at running primarily Black so that you can focus your most expensive cards into one colour, letting you run several decks based on that 'core'. I love black for Inquisition of Kozilek and Fatal Push - a solid removal/hand disruption suite can make almost any deck work, giving you immense freedom in the other slots. That said, it makes for slower games- not commander slow, but still grindy. Red/black has aggro options, but its basically either burn or non-budget.

Remember that if you have a solid manabase, you can run most budget decks in those colours so you arent always bringing the same thing to the table. Delver/Prowess aggro, wizards, Storm, Pili-Pala combo/control, izzet control, Metallurgic Summonings control etc. Blue red also has a lot of interaction without getting grindy, which mostly makes for great gameplay.

If you are looking at flying tribal, blue white Sephara, Sky's Blade Stompy is also well within your budget. The thing about winds lists is that they want a lot of creatures, while delver lists like lots of spells- you tend to end up picking one or the other (unless you are in a weird tokens variant, but that mostly becomes an Intangible Virtue list)

There is also a jeskai variant on the ephara list that runs Lightning Angel and Mantis Rider instead of ephara. Either way, Mausoleum Wanderer and Judge's Familiar deserve a look if you want to go this way- which will pull your lands towards U/W.

If you want to play black, I reccomend at looking at creature/spell synergy based around Unearth with delver, possibly looking for value with cards like Lightning Skelemental . Stick to a fast gameplan, so that you can use pain lands for cheaper mana, or tribal strategies so that you can use Unclaimed Territory

I love playing budget modern- there is something about going 2/1 up against a 2 grand deck with something you put together for fifty which is very satisfying. Whatever people say, you can get wins with tier two cards in competitive metas- you won't crush a tournament, but you can consistantly go 3/2 at fnm, and hold pace with anything a serious modern player brings, even if you never get that edge you need to crush tournaments.

Some more noncreature spells that get you creatures you can use with the Staff: Abstruse Interference , Efficient Construction , Geist Snatch , Grip of Phyresis , Metallurgic Summonings , Orochi Hatchery , Rise from the Tides , Skywise Teachings , and Thopter Spy Network .

Depending on the decks in your pod, certain suggestions may be better than others.

Strike_Rouge on Elsha, Jeskai Descendant - [Primer]

From one spellslinger to another, although I may specialize more with Kess, hello! I'm glad someone finally made a primer for this dude. I kept trying to build a deck, and all roads kept pointing to "Play Narset, you fool!" I'll be curious to see how this goes down the road.

It might be in your favor to toss Leyline of Anticipation . I can see where one might go with that, but hear me out here. If I'm not mistaken, based on a lot of what I see going, it seems like this deck wants to be cEDH despite not explicitly stating as much (correct me if I'm wrong at all). If that's the case, tossing out Leyline of Anticipation might be best. For four mana, it doesn't necessarily win you the game or explicitly get you a hell of a lot closer to that point. Generally, cards with CMC 4+ outside of the Commander aren't super worth it unless they can do that for you.

All that said, if it were me, I'd also toss Metallurgic Summonings . I used to run this thing back in my early days with Kess. The extra bodies are kinda nice, but the 5 CMC for easily circumvented bodies isn't great, at least in my experience.

Lastly, I'd consider tossing Spellseeker . An extra body might be nice, but given everything it's capable of searching for and its CMC, I'd argue it's barely worth it.

So what do I recommend?

In the Spellseeker slot, I'd add Mystical Tutor . To be honest, unless I'm blind, I was shocked not to see it here. Because it puts an instant/sorcerey on top, it might as well be going into your hand. From there, you can fish out a wincon/piece of a wincon.

In your Metallurgic slot, an extra turn spell like Nexus of Fate . Getting an extra turn can sometimes close the game.

Lastly, in the Leyline slot, I think this deck might want a form of boardwipe, perhaps in the form of Blasphemous Act . I've played with minimal creatures before. It's not great when 2/4ths or 3/4ths of the table, all of whom are creature whores, decide you're the threat. Imagine what a power move it'd be to play a 1-drop Blasphemous Act from the top of your deck with flash.

Side note, Lightning Greaves could be worth considering. Elsha appears to be integral to the deck's functionality.

All in all, solid build!

Maybe look at Talrand, Sky Summoner or Metallurgic Summonings as another potential win-con? And Mizzix's Mastery could be an amazing flashy finish

Caerwyn on Kess, Dissident Mage cEDH WIP

You are going to run into a lot of problems if you try and run this list in a true cEDH environment. While you have a ton of cEDH staples, your deck also contains a number of less-optimized cards that you will likely never be able to cast in an ultra-competitive game.

Crumbling Necropolis should get cut. Lands that enter the battlefield tapped without an additional effect are a death sentence in cEDH, where every single turn could be the last one.

Temple of the False God should also get cut. It's a fine card in casual, slower metas, but it doesn't do all that much for you in the faster-paced cEDH (particularly if you're not in green and don't have land-ramp).

I know some cEDH decks run as few as 28 lands, so you might not need replacements. IF you do, some good budget-friendly options are Tarnished Citadel (can always provide free mana, and provides some emergency colour-fixing at a fairly reasonable cost) and Cephalid Coliseum (mana at first, later in the game it draws cards and dumps cards into the graveyard for Kess).

Dramatic Reversal is a fantastic card to run alongside Scepter, as the two can be used alongside your mana rocks for infinite mana.

Cards like Windfall and Wheel of Fortune are disproportionately powerful in Kess, since they draw you a bunch of cards and you still have access to a bunch of the cards you discarded.

I don't think Thousand-Year Storm , Metallurgic Summonings , or The Eldest Reborn have a high enough payout to justify their high mana costs. By the time you've generated that much mana, you should have some more exciting, game-winning things to be doing.

Hope some of that helps!
