Did you think about cards like Reverberate and such?
1 week ago
Hi! I love the build you got here, there's a lot of differences between yours and my Voltron version you commented on!
Like you mentioned in your comments, wheels pair nice with Smothering Tithe , but playing a card you don't like doesn't feel great either.
If you go the route of more tokens; Skullclamp is a great add for token decks, 1 Mana to draw 2 is hard to beat. Dawn of Hope may be a good card as the Mana sink is nice, but is very dependent on life gain.
If you go spellslinger; Aetherflux Reservoir is a great wincon, which you already have in your side board. Increasing Vengeance , Reverberate and the spell copiers like it are all great adds, double your own spells, copy someone else's spell (my favorite target is a Kodama's Reach ) or copying another players counterspell.
I think the only 2 questionable inclusions out of the list that I see are Magnetic Theft and Basilisk Collar . Magnetic theft works great to steal others equipment, but having reliable targets of your own (like sunforger, which you're against) to equip for cheap make it more valuable. Also, basilisk collar doesn't seem to fit the deck too, besides just being a nice equipment for Feather. If life gain is a theme, then it's a great fit!
Be sure to be careful with Lightning Greaves too, shroud on my creature that I want to target has ruined my day before.
Other than that, you have a great list here! Once you have more of a focus, just a few small tweaks and you should have a solid deck!

beardumbra Oh man, I don't know how I missed Expansion / Explosion . That's basically a lower upside Reverberate or Twincast but with an upside of also having a half that can blow stuff up and draw me cards (two things I don't have enough of in this deck). I think I'll be replacing Reverberate with that, since I actually took Reverberate out of my Jaya Ballard, Task Mage EDH deck to make this one. I like the idea of adding in Growth Spiral as well, I just don't know what I would remove for it. An earlier Tana sounds like a great idea, though. Can't get those tokens generating soon enough!

Hey, to really speed your deck up you're going to unfortunately have to spend more money on better mana rocks and lands. That being said here's some budget options to help to improve your deck.
Cards to consider adding:
- Shivan Reef : ETB untapped to make colorless, red or blue mana.
- Ash Barrens : ETB untapped to make colorless mana or best of all can be discarded from hand to search for a basic land.
- Grixis Panorama : ETB untapped to make colorless mana and can be saced later on to find a basic Island or Mountain.
- Mystic Remora : one of the best repeatable sources of card draw in multiplayer Commander.
- Fellwar Stone : two drop mana rock that ETB untapped.
- Mystical Tutor : tutor for any instant or sorcery.
- Gamble : tutor for any card.
- Merchant Scroll : tutor for an blue instant.
- Twincast : copy any instant or sorcery. When you have multiple opponents this is very versatile or copy your own spell and get an additional effect for an additional two mana.
- Reverberate : same as Twincast.
- Chaos Warp : permanent removal, removal for Smothering Tithe .
- Chain of Vapor : nonland permanent bounce, bounce Smothering before you wheel or mass draw.
- Abrade : kill a creature or a mana rock.
- Reality Shift : instant exile is good in Commander.
- Bident of Thassa : lots of card draw with Insects, double your Insect army just by doing combat damage to an opponent, win condition with several cards here.
- Whirlpool Warrior : two wheels.
- Psychosis Crawler : more mana efficient win condition when drawing.
- Izzet Charm : versatile.
- Expedition Map : tutor for Reliquary Tower or Command Tower. Just being able to get Reliquary is worth it.
- Pull from Tomorrow : another good instant mass draw spell.
If you like some of these suggestions then I offer help to make cuts. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, looks good, nice Wheel of Fortune :)
Consider reducing the avg. CMC of your deck? Izzet and control thrive on being able to cast a lot of spells especially when you're wheeling. I presume you're playing Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to stop yourself from drawing/wheeling your entire library as well as opponent mill against you? With your high deck budget there's several card upgrades to consider, even some budget cards.
Consider Jace's Archivist ? It's a repeatable Windfall for one mana. Consider Mystic Remora ? Like Study it's repeatable no mana cost draw and is excellent in multiplayer Commander. Consider Brainstorm , Preordain and Frantic Search ? All three of these are in the maybeboard, not sure why.
Consider Twincast and Reverberate ? These are underrated spells in multiplayer Commander. When you have multiple opponents that makes these very versatile. Blue and Red lack a lot of tutors. There's still a few good ones such as Gamble (consider adding), Mystical Tutor , Merchant Scroll , etc., but none of these compare to black powerful tutors or green creature tutors. These cards can act as a two drop tutor at instant speed or even copy your own wheel or Mystical.
Consider Fabricate ? It can tutor for one of Puzzle Box, Crawler, Archive, or even Sol or Vessel, etc. Consider Expedition Map ? For one reason to tutor for Requilary Tower and/or Command Tower. For the manabase consider City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Forbidden Orchard and Ash Barrens ? City, Confluence and Orchard are more Rainbow lands and Barrens has basic landcycling or it can ETB untapped to make colorless.
Smothering Tithe is a very popular white card and you don't want to wheel the table if this card is on the battlefield because your opponent depending on how many other players are still in the game can create up to 21 treasures from one wheel. Letting your opponent then have all the mana to cast all the cards they just drew from the wheel. Consider Chain of Vapor and Chaos Warp to help to against Smothering and other problem permanents?
Cards to consider adding:
- City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Forbidden Orchard and Ash Barrens
- Jace's Archivist
- Mystic Remora
- Brainstorm , Preordain , Frantic Search
- Chain of Vapor
- Chaos Warp
- Expedition Map
Cards to consider cutting:
- Bad River
- Evolving Wilds
- Terramorphic Expanse
- Transguild Promenade
- Rupture Spire
- Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind
- Dominus of Fealty
- Murmuring Mystic
- Laquatus's Creativity
- Game Plan
- Scour from Existence
- Swarm Intelligence
- Sentinel Tower
- Darksteel Ingot
Good luck with your deck.

Also for future reference, you can put card names inside square brackets [ [ CardName ] ] without the spaces to link to the card so people can know immediately which cards you're talking about.

First off, Divinity of Pride cannot be run with your current commander. The black may be an optional cost, but it's still part of the cards colors, and can't be run in a boros deck.
It looks like you're trying to stay pretty budget, so I'd suggest Fanning the Flames as a very grindy, burn win condition. If you can find ways to copy with things like Reverberate it can be a pretty powerful game closer. Along with that, having some mana rocks like Sol Ring and Thran Dynamo will be useful to get your commander out faster and build up a competitive late game mana reserve.
Something that you should remember when playing burn in commander is that while single target removal is important, if all your cards go 1-for-1, you're going to lose, because there are 3 cards for each one you have. Removal like Arrows of Justice just aren't going to deliver you enough value to win games. Consider more flexible options like Swords to Plowshares .
You also run a lot of fog effects for not having a ton of creatures. Maybe drop a few in exchange for more consistent removal and some good card draw engines. I heavily suggest Invoke the Divine and Return to Dust . I think you should also consider Sunbird's Invocation to supply you deck with the follow up it needs.
Overall you have a good start, and with a little bit of work this could be a really neat deck. Keep up the good work!

Hello! I have a question about the following section here:
"When posting a thread, check the recent threads to see if the topic is already covered. If it is, post in the existing thread instead."
As of right now there is already a Modern Horizons thread, however; I'd like to make a specific speculation thread on this upcoming product asking players to post what cards they do not think will be reprinted in this product as well as what new cards might be included that mimic cards on the restricted list, for example; Fork & Reverberate . (I wish to ask the second part as players would never speculate whether a reserved list card would make it in the set unless this caveat is specifically mentioned in the post.)
I could post my question on the thread, but I feel people will largely overlook it, likely posting their speculation on what cards they'd want to include in their decks rather than creating a discussion on why particular cards shouldn't be in the set for their potential to warp the format or change the current meta in an unhealthy manner. That's to say I feel posting this topic as it's own thread would result in a different conversation than the one currently on the established post without detracting anything from it.
Does the specificality of my thread idea warrant the approval of a new thread to address this topic not currently being discussed, or would it not be allowed due to sharing a similar commonality to a previous thread regardless of how the matter is being addressed? Thanks!
