Love the Deck, here are some fun and cheap suggestions that may help you out!

Wall of Denial / Vapor Snag / Celestial Flare / Elite Arcanist / Righteousness / Spell Snare / Godhead of Awe / Silence / Detention Sphere / Journey to Nowhere / Preordain / Jace, the Living Guildpact / Deputy of Detention / Invocation of Saint Traft / Unsettled Mariner / Oblivion Ring /

These are all great budget options that can replace a lot of your cards that already do the same, but for a higher cost. these kind of decks its vital to stall till you can drop bombs for a win. Good looking deck, hope it helps!

Hey, hey. Here's some recommendations for some board wipes and spot removal!

Obviously being a creature focused deck, you don't normally want too often to clear the board, but sometimes we have no choice. Which is why I'd look at cards that are either one-sided board wipes, situational/modal wipes or Evacuation type effects.

- Cleansing Nova classic modal that works for 2 situations.

- Time Wipe Saves your commander before wiping the board.

- Austere Command bit pricey but very good.

- Evacuation as I mentioned before, super good at instant speed. Highly recommend this one.

- Devastation Tide The miracle doesn't work as well for you, but it's still a good option.

- Curse of the Swine an exiling board wipe just for whatever you want to target.

As far as spot removal, white does that incredibly well with Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile but there's a few others that double up for utility with your creature strategy.

- Incubation / Incongruity

- Oblivion Ring or Fiend Hunter because creature based removal works great for you

- Beast Within deals with everything

Hope this helps!

It's not super budget, but Vindicate is even better than Bedevil, and you could certainly run both. In legacy, I'd hate to not run any Swords to Plowshares type cards, or even a couple Oblivion Ring , which is crazy versatile, and can give you a win vs a wider range of decks. Otherwise, I'd reduce your mana base a bit in white to add a bit more non-white, IE remove 2 plains for 2 more Dragonskull Summit. You could also try Diabolic Edict , but I don't know if that's better than your white options.

Very quick to start swinging actually, and can swing hard if you can get Belle equipped. Lots of fun to play against. If you like the deck as is, I'd probably go with a label other than Legacy, which is very competitive compared to other formats.

I prefer not using enchantment based removal over other removal. This deck can cast any other type of removal at instant speed off the top, and effects like Pongify and Swords to Plowshares are more permanent than Oblivion Ring like effects.

I do, however, like the idea of the Monastery Mentor in the deck, and will definitely be making a space for it in the deck at some point!

May I suggest the following?: Counterspell Negate Swan Song Delay as for the counters. They're just a must have in a blue controllish scenario when you want to avoid any trouble until you have your commander out. But they're also useful in the later stages of the game when you want to "nope" the key/finisher cards of your opponent(s). Blue is also known for it's draw power: Mystic Remora (the more affordable) and Rhystic Study both really shine in MP sessions.

White has also some nice control enchantments like: Oblivion Ring

, Banishing Light , Hieromancer's Cage , Stasis Snare or Suspension Field . I suggest to add one or two, to exile the biggest threat IF necessary (I'm looking at you generic Eldrazi with anihilator 4) You have 38 creatures in the deck. With Patriarch's Bidding you already have an excellent ressurection option IF ever needed (with this creature stock) so maybe taking out Lifeline and adding some ramp like Arcane Signet , Fellwar Stone , Coalition Relic or even Herald's Horn to reduce the mana cost of your slivers. Aggro decks (naturally) tend to attract more attention on the table. You also want to protect yourself from massive board-wipes with maybe Teferi's Protection , Boros Charm or Heroic Intervention . But use them yourself Planar Cleansing , Phyrexian Rebirth or Merciless Eviction should be some nice sideboard add's when facing maybe goblin's or vampires (also very aggro tribes) I'd rather run (target) permanent removals: Assassin's Trophy , Generous Gift , Beast Within than tutors (but this is a very personal choice) because your commander already is tutoring up all the other needs. Maybe add one more land tutor. Skyshroud Claim for example. first sliver could cascade you a massive amount of creatures in just one big scoop. A must have. Also maybe reduce the amount of the +/+ Slivers to get some room for the more necessary ramp and control you need to stabilize your game. I hope this helps to stabilize your gameplan. HF

I love the Jeskai shell right now. Have you tested with exile effects like Banishing Light or Oblivion Ring ? Or with Monastery Mentor ?

Working on Elsha (Elsha's Payday EDH) and Kykar lists (Kykar Token Storm - EDH), as well - feedback warmly welcome.

DreadKhan on Healing deck

I feel like even the (very, very) humble Healing Salve is almost always way better than alabaster potion, but I'm not certain either is worthy of inclusion. If you are interested in damage prevention, I used to use Orim, Samite Healer as a budget EDH Commander, and she did some funny stuff for sure, be it blocking big creatures or helping negate slow damage sources entirely. Hard to win with her, but she was fun.

I feel like you could also consider Chalice of Life  Flip, in case you can't get the Sovereign out, it can be a back up win condition that is direct damage.

I think Shield Wall could be booted too, I wonder if you couldn't make Mobilization useful, as a mana sink that can delay the opponent with chumps, or push for the win in some situations I guess.

In terms of general problem solving good old Oblivion Ring is a nasty customer, being able to remove all kinds of annoyances preventing you from winning the game. Exile might be good fun, and theoretically, you might toss in up to 4 Swords to Plowshares as you don't care at all most of the time what your opponent's life is, just yours, and in a pinch, you can use swords on your own biggie to get your life total high enough to win.

Looks like a fun deck!
