you can cut anything cmc 4+, and i'd recommend Hedron Crab, fetchlands so you can trigger the crabs twice in a single turn, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mesmeric Orb, and Fraying Sanity.

i almost recommended Mind Sculpt, then saw you mentioned Maddening Cacophony which would be a strict upgrade. stay away from lands that enter tapped. you'll want Polluted Delta, some other fetch that can get an island (to prioritize turn 1 crab), Watery Grave, and Drowned Catacomb. you can skip the planeswalkers and enchantments in favor of more efficient removal and counterspells like Fatal Push and Mana Leak

Mystic Remora, Trail of Evidence and Legacy's Allure would be excellent includes.

Ancient Tomb, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Scalding Tarn, Misty Rainforest, Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs, Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand and Snow-Covered Islands would all bolster consistency and give you a tad more ramp/attrition - though all of this comes in at a few morgage payments unless your group lets you proxy.

Mana Drain, Force of Will, Force of Negation and Delay are all ridiculous counter spells. On the more budget end of things Miscast and Spell Pierce can make do in a pinch

Preordain, Brainstorm, and Opt may not look like much but they all drastically increase consistency without breaking the bank.

Now, personally I love Narset, Parter of Veils with Windfall but that's too oppressive for some play groups - play at your own risk

Gilded Drake - for the cost of a used Nintendo switch you can make commander dependent decks salty and sad every time :)

Winter Orb, Static Orb and Storage Matrix are very dumb with urza and I advise you only play this if your friends are cool with this type of degenerate stuff.

Anyways, hope that helped some :)

Watery Grave is a may ability you don't need to pay the life. Plus you can search it with the Polluted Delta. With Drowned Catacomb unless you play it turn one or your only land is the flip one. Maybe two coast and two catacombs

Hey there! Maybe consider these lands.

Fast lands are relatively cheap, and still good in the early game. Darkslick Shores, Blackcleave Cliffs, and Spirebluff Canal. I would also recommend adding the rest of the filter lands, (Cascade Bluffs and Sunken Ruins) as well as the other fetch lands (if you have the budget) and pain lands. (Polluted Delta/Scalding Tarn and Sulfurous Springs/Underground River). You also might like some of the following, though some are a bit expensive.

Massacar suggested Mana Severance to clear the lands out of your deck once you have enough in play, another thing you could do to thin your deck out of lands is to start running all of the fetch lands you can. While I wouldn't normally suggest this in a two color deck, your decklist is already $1000+ and you're talking about hitting cEDH levels, so i'd suggest running the 7 fetch lands that have either blue or red, as well as Prismatic Vista and maybe even a Fabled Passage. Remember that sense they don't have the mana symbols, fetches can legally be run in any commander deck, and can be safely run as long as you have at least one color to fetch.

For reference:


Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Misty Rainforest


Bloodstained Mire, Wooded Foothills, Arid Mesa


Scalding Tarn

I would cut down Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage to 2 copies and Funeral Charm down to 2 copies and add 3 copies of Thoughtseize for more controlled disruption.

Pack Rat is also a nice cheap finishing creature, since you dont need many lands. Maybe 2-3 Liliana, Waker of the Dead seems to be enough.

For the Fatal Push you should consider to play some Fetchlands. Polluted Delta and Bloodstained Mire are the cheapest for the black targets.

Murderous Rider is a nice Sideboard card against early Planeswalkers that may draw more cards.
