Hey there! Spellslinging is a super popular theme in commander (assuming that's what you're going for), and I have a few options you might want to look into! On a side note, if you like getting suggestions I recommend marking your deck as "help" under its edit settings so people are more inclined to comment on it. Additionally, you can specify which printing when inputting a card, but for Rowan it would be "1x Rowan, Scholar of Sparks (STX:278)".


Will and Rowan are GREAT, but if you'd like, here are a few instant/sorcery matters commanders in ! Most of these are also great cards just in the deck whether you use them as commanders or not: - Veyran, Voice of Duality - Mizzix of the Izmagnus - Niv-Mizzet, Parun (goes infinite with multiple cards such as Ophidian Eye , Tandem Lookout , Curiosity , and more. Especially with something like Laboratory Maniac out) - Melek, Izzet Paragon - Zaffai, Thunder Conductor

Lands/Ramp: Since this would be a spellslinger deck, I'll stay away from too many artifacts, but here are a few ramp cards and good lands to consider!

Some good Instants/Sorceries There's obviously tons upon tons upon tons of these, but here are a few that I enjoy using.

Instants/Sorceries Matter: There are also tons of these, but just to name a few:

I hope this helps! Some suggestions may be out of budget and others may not be, and on the other hand you might have already known about most of these cards, but either way I hope this is of use to you! Be sure to check out some of my decks like Double Trouble EDH ⫸PRIMER⫷, but most of all, good luck on your deck! Have a fantastic day, and happy tapping.

The reason chose Dispel is since it so cheap and I only wanted a counter for removal spells, which are mostly instants, i.e, Assassin's Trophy , Go for the Throat , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Beast Within , any counter-spell you can name, Lightning Bolt , and of course most importantly Path to Exile . With this deck I don't care about countering anything other than removal.

Between countering removal and reanimation, my creatures will be pretty bulletproof. It sets me up for a flavor win, though it may not be the most efficient strategy, not sure if I will ever buy this deck... so feel free to drop your suggests for more expensive cards and fetch lands.

The list looks great, though I think you should add in Pongify and Rapid Hybridization

Blue is the transformative color. Given the Clone family of cards and things like Unstable Mutation . Polymorph is one of the most powerful transformation cards you can play. Blue is also, mostly, the only color that can easily change creature types of unwilling targets.

I agree about these cards being closer to Simic than mono Blue nowadays but Pongify and Rapid Hybridization are perfect examples of how a Blue mage could negate or remove a threat that has legs.

Maybe they should have been 2 color spells in line with things like Abrupt Decay and Anguished Unmaking ?

Pongify and Rapid Hybridization seem more simic than white. If you're thinking about Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile take a closer look. First two destroy and replace with a creature. Second two exile and replace with life and a basic land. I feel like this is comparing apples to frog lizards.

The color pie is one of the central elements of this game, or, at least, that is what WotC has stated on multiple occasions, but I cannot help but wonder if they truly care about that, given some of the cards that they have been printing, in recent years.

Cards such as Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Curse of the Swine , and, most recently, Ravenform , Resculpt , and Oversimplify all are blue cards that destroy or exile creatures, which is supposed to be blue’s major weakness; that it can delay threats, but not stop them entirely. If those cards returned the creatures to their owners’ hands, shuffled them into their owners’ libraries, or temporarily transformed them, as does Ovinize , they would be acceptable, but, in their current form, they go against the philosophy of blue being the least aggressive and combative color; blue is the best color for countering spells, so its deliberate weakness is that it has trouble dealing with permanents that have successfully entered the battlefield.

I feel that I should also mention Beast Within , in this thread, because one of green’s major weaknesses is that it is not supposed to be able to unconditionally destroy creatures, being the most creature-centric color of the game. WotC eventually did print Generous Gift , a white version of that card, which is not a break, since white is allowed to destroy any type of permanent due it having the least emphasis on card advantage of all the colors, but that card has been reprinted only once, whereas WotC has reprinted Beast Within numerous times, including in the most recent Commander set.

Even worse, all of these breaks are examples of green and blue intruding into white’s territory, yet, WotC has not printed any white counterspells in years and has been very slow in providing white with methods of card advantage that work within that color’s philosophy.

I am sorry if I am ranting, but this is severely frustrating, to me, especially since white is my favorite color in the game, and I also worry that newer players to the game will think that it is acceptable for blue to have such efficient creature removal, since those cards have existed since they began playing the game. Hopefully, if a sufficient number of players complain, WotC shall realize that they are undermining a central aspect of the game, and stop doing it.

What does everyone else here have to say about this? Does WotC care about the color pie, at all, anymore?

The thing is I have hated Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , and Reality Shift for quite some time since they basically make blue the second best color at single-target creature removal in EDH, it's perverse. Giving it Abrade on steroids isn't exactly moving things in a desirable direction for me
