Rhystic Study Discussion
17 hours ago
Saw this deck list requesting help so ill provide some feedback here. First of all love the idea of winning with Eldrazi spawn tokens! I do feel though that you have too many creatures in the deck and could use some more utility spells to smooth out your games and push you towards your goal. I am not sure of your budget so ill try to keep that in mind with my feedback. Some ideas of this would be:
- Remove Benthic Infiltrator for Awakening Zone
- Remove Culling Drone for Arcane Signet
- Remove Dominator Drone for Sol Ring
- Remove Fathom Feeder for Baleful Strix
- Remove Mist Intruder for All Is Dust
- Remove Nettle Drone for Rhystic Study
- Remove Ruthless Deathfang for Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact although the second is harder to cast
- Remove Salvage Drone for Ponder or Preordain or a similar spell
- Remove Sludge Crawler and Vestige of Emrakul for Dimir Signet or Golgari Signet or Gruul Signet or Izzet Signet or Rakdos Signet or Simic Signet
Some general things to think about. You look like you need some more card draw and mana ramp (hence some of my suggestions above) but also need some additional removal spells to slow down everyone else while you get your army built.
Hope some of this helps!

legendofa, some reprints that I very much would like to see in such a set are Imperial Seal , Book of Rass , Rhystic Study , Smothering Tithe , The Immortal Sun , and Dockside Extortionist , because all of those cards are very expensive (except for the book, which I wish to see reprinted simply so that it shall be in the new border style with new artwork.

Hello. I have been studying Blink Brago Control for few weeks and I have to tell that I probably have found my place in MTG - I need to build this deck. The job that you had done is so good.. I'm gonna create my deck based on yours. Why ? Because your deck is IMO lacking some essential cards and OFC an UPDATE. Yep... you really need an update. Im casual player, any feedback is very appreciated. So I encourage everybody who is reading this to a discussion.
card draw / card selection
Rhystic Study - Every blue commander should play this, why don't we try - gives consistent draw to get more cards..
Mystic Remora - more draw..
Esper Sentinel - kinda new card in magic - gets consistent draw
Dig Through Time - Powerful because of delve.
Luminous Broodmoth - Mass removal - even more profit! more blinking!
Soulherder - Every blink deck, please. This enables to get more blinking triggers and payoffs at the same time.
Disallow - extended counterspell...
Trickbind - counter triggers sometimes are gold worth.
Dovin's Veto - One of the most powerful counterspells in magic. Guesss what. It's Azorius colors ;)
Path to Exile - classic
Lightning Greaves - protect commander
Linvala, Shield of Sea Gate - lets sacrifice it anytime we need...
Thran Dynamo - IMO really underappreciated mana base card.
Teferi, Master of Time - Isn't this a must-play in an BW deck now?
Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - Isn't it too much mana?

I do think Esper Sentinel is moving in the right direction, we just need more of this type of effect, and it already needs to be reprinted because like anything that draws cards in white, it is pricey in real-world money. When I spend money on my decks, it never feels good to do it on ramp and draw, those should be the cheap cards so that we can spend money on fun ones! I do think taxing card draw is a great way to go for white though. Taxes has always been true to color, and Rhystic Study is really off-color by today's standards.

multimedia while not a true budget pre say it's more a miserly deck if it above a certain price threshold ($15 or more) i need a very good reason to put it and whether or not a cheaper card can fill the role just as or almost as good as that card (almost all my decks follow this rule).
But anyway I see what you mean i just don't have enough reliable ways of pulling Omniscience ... however while a great win con it not the only win con that this deck is going to rely on hopefully when finalized so i don't need to stuff it with enchantment tutors (hopefully).

Component Pouch: A worse Coalition Relic meant to annoy me, especially since I never liked D&D usage of low-cost components.
Midnight Pathlighter: "one or more", my old nemesis. Still, nonlegendary evasion is pretty good even in a format largely defined by the presence of legendary creatures, so you can probably get in a hit on more than one person.
wand of Orcus: "that many"? Ooof. Death Baron on a stick isn't bad either.
Rod of Absorption: Pretty neat, as it picks up both your stuff and other people's. Too reliable to be red I guess.
Phantom Steed: ... this feels very red? Guessing it's mostly so Minn can get more support.
Minn: Oh my, power? And it's any permanent? Also, lol, Rhystic Study synergy, no effort needed. (But you should probably still get a Brainstorm or something, those tokens seem pretty wild.) Easily my favorite card.
Thorough Investigation: here we go, the vaunted white advantage attempt, and it's not that bad, but Hand of Vecna is better imo, immediately giving draw, and white doesn't have that much Clue support on its to fuel the second ability.
Revivify: This feels like an annoying hoop to jump trough when you could just cast Eerie Interlude ? Not the board wipe resilience the format needs IMO
Radiant Solar: I like that pseudo-cycling ability, not sure about the cost tho.
Immovable Rod: Loses all abilities, and any permanent? And it triggers when you do untap? Not a bad source of repeatable pseudo-removal.
Nihiloor: Stealing commander gooo. Copying him is one way to get extra ETB triggers, but it's kinda annoying since you have to keep track of which Nihiloor has stolen which creature.
Wulfgar: Nooooooooo!!!!!! you can't just put Suns_Champion's Attackharmonicon Aurelia on a non-boros commander nooooooooooo. Anyway, jokes aside this is nice, I can't immediately grasp all the value TBH.
Klauth's Will: Feels kinda weird in a set with nonflying Dragons?
Dragonborn Champion: a source, not just combat damage from creatures. Might be kinda winmore when you're hitting people for that ammount tho.
Bag of Tricks: Ugh, this is way too swingy for my tastes.
Vengeful Ancestor: Yessss, hello Marisi, Breaker of the Coil ! The flying is appreciated too. Just note that it's symmetrical.
Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient: finally caught on Aggravated Assault eh?
