1332 The only cards I would change are to add Scalding Tarn over the Polluted Delta in terms of straight upgrades. Maybe add a few extra Fiery Islet over Spirebluff Canal but there is a lot of burn in my area. Extra Monastery Mentor over the Pyromancer Ascension in the sideboard.

I'm sorry to be the bad guy, but this deck is far too slow to be competitive. It may be in your local meta, but it will be eaten alive in a tournament.

  1. An average cmc >3 is bad. The closer to 2 the better.

  2. Many of your lands enter tapped, which is a waste of space and significantly hurts your speed.
    You need:
    Command Tower
    City of Brass
    Reflecting Pool
    Exotic Orchard
    Cavern of Souls
    Polluted Delta
    Flooded Strand
    Bloodstained Mire
    Underground River
    Sunken Ruins
    Prismatic Vista

  3. Artifacts over a 2 cost aren't worth running other than chromatic lantern. They are, again, too slow. Check out:
    Talisman of Dominance
    Lotus Petal
    Mana Crypt
    Chrome Mox
    Fellwar Stone
    Thought Vessel

  4. I would run 6 or 7 counters. 3 of your 4 are unfavorable. Drop everything but counterspell. Check out:
    Flusterstorm instead of dispel.
    Mana Drain
    Delay over spell crumble (if you're playing a true competitive deck, they'll just tutor the card back up))
    Disallow is the only 3 drop work running.
    Swan Song is also better than dispel.
    Pact of negation is okay at best. 5 cost isn't worth it it stifles your next turn.

I can tell you like desertion given your artifact selection. There is only one word to describe that card. BAD. Take it out.

  1. Card advantage is king. Look into:
    Mystic Remora
    Rhystic Study
    Dire Undercurrents

That's all I have for you. It's a decent deck. I like the build outside of the artifacts, counters, and lands. Change them up and you'll be amazed how much better this deck will become. It'll be significant.

As far as lands go,

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
Reflecting Pool
Watery Grave
Polluted Delta
City of Brass
Command Tower
Mana Confluence
Drowned Catacomb
Sunken Ruins
Underground River

Are all some pretty good staples. They will help you bring up that blue mana % without losing out on the black mana you need. It will keep your deck consistent in obtaining color profile.

DemMeowsephs on It was Zur idea

Nice deck name, it's pretty funny. I would suggest some other lands, preferably some of the following: Hallowed Fountain , Irrigated Farmland , Seachrome Coast , Flooded Strand , Mystic Gate , Fetid Pools , Darkslick Shores , Choked Estuary , Sunken Hollow , Polluted Delta , Sunken Ruins , Godless Shrine , Isolated Chapel , Silent Clearing , Fetid Heath , and Marsh Flats . If you find any of these suggestions helpful, I would appreciate it if you upvote my deck: A Deal with the Devil! But nonetheless, nice deck, hope this helps, and have a nice day.

Nice Deck, but there is some room for card improvement in it. Start off by adding Hinterland Harbor , and Breeding Pool , since you already have the other check and shock lands. And don't forget Watery Grave either. I would also consider adding fetch lands: Polluted Delta , Verdant Catacombs , and Misty Rainforest . Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is also pretty much a better version of a swamp as well. Filter lands would also be useful like Twilight Mire , Flooded Grove , and Sunken Ruins . You don't really need Bounce Lands like Simic Growth Chamber , but they are ok if you want to keep them. I would prefer to have fast lands though: Blooming Marsh , Botanical Sanctum , and Darkslick Shores . The other Horizon land would also be helpful, I believe it is called Waterlogged Grove . These lands should hopefully make your deck a lot better! If you find any of these suggestions useful I would appreciate it if you upvote my deck: A Deal With the Devil EDH! Have a great day, hope these suggestions help, and good luck on your deck.

Nice Deck, Mishra is a cool commander! The only suggestion I have regards the lands. Lands are my favorite part of magic as weird as that seems, so I am very specific about them. If I were you I would consider the following types of lands: Fast Lands, Reveal Lands, Filter lands, Shock Lands, Battle Lands, Check Lands, and Fetch lands: These types include but are not limited to the following cards: Darkslick Shores , Choked Estuary , Sunken Hollow , Polluted Delta , Sunken Ruins , Blood Crypt , Dragonskull Summit , Bloodstained Mire , Blackcleave Cliffs , Foreboding Ruins , Smoldering Marsh , Graven Cairns , Steam Vents , Sulfur Falls , Spirebluff Canal , Fiery Islet , Cascade Bluffs , and Scalding Tarn . If you end up finding any of these lands helpful, I would appreciate if you upvote and support my commander deck: A Deal with the Devil! Thanks, good luck on your deck, and hope these cards help!
