Hey, good work in progress so far for a first deck with an interesting concept.

Command Tower and Arcane Signet are two staples to consider adding. Consider adding some flying creatures who can disrupt your opponent to help you do keep the monarch and some repeatable sources of flying creatures?

Blind Obedience can be opponent mana rock ramp disruption and shuts off haste of opponent's creatures who might want to attack you. With Cunning Rhetoric opponent may not want to attack you because then you'll exile card from top of their library.

The mana curve is very high here since you have so many 5 CMC, 6 CMC or higher cards. Cutting some of them for lower CMC cards and more ramp would help gameplay. More two drop mana rocks can make it easier/faster to cast Marchesa. Since she's a 4 CMC creature then a turn two mana rock can potentially let you cast her turn three if you make your land drops.

Some lands to consider adding in place of some basic lands that are within your budget to improve the manabase:

If you're playing Dark Depths then consider Thespian's Stage? Stage is the land that combos with Depths to get Marit Lage. When you control Depths and Stage pay 2 mana to copy Depths with Stage. Stage becomes Depths with no ice counters on it and the legendary rule will take place since you can't control two legendary Depths at the same time. Choose to keep Stage and remove Depths. Since Stage has no ice counters it's saced to create Marit Lage.

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Spoilers today look pretty solid. The head of the zombie commander deck looks fun and werewolves finally got the legendary lord that they needed in Tovolar. I really like that his upkeep effect actually punishes your opponents for flipping your werewolves back into humans. I still would've loved to see him with Naya colors so you could run Rule of Law effects, but overall, werewolves got a very solid legendary to serve as a commander. Seeing a new Arlinn planeswalker is great as well...though her extend art version is really dis-jarring. I get that it's depicting her when she served the church in her past, but idk, it's just odd.

Hey, nice budget version of Zur. There's 2x Dispel here. It could be one of the four cards you can cut to get to 100 cards. The others could be Starfield of Nyx , Dark Ritual and Gift of Orzhova .

Rule of Law can be powerful to cheat onto the battlefield with Zur. It will slow down your opponents more than you because you have a repeatable source of tutoring for enchantments. Vanishing can repeatedly protect Zur from anything and all auras/equipment that's with him. When he phase out all cards that are with him also phase out and all don't return until your next untap step.

Profane Tutor can tutor for any card, just have to wait two turns with suspend. Moon-Blessed Cleric can tutor for any enchantment and Heliod's Pilgrim can tutor for an any aura. Archon of Sun's Grace is an upgrade for Ajani's Chosen . Sovereigns of Lost Alara is another way to tutor for and cheat Eldrazi Conscription onto the battlefield.

Some budget land upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Looks like a fun and solid list, especially with the announced Hullbreacher ban!

How do you normally win in this deck?

TBH a Selesnya cEDH deck in the current meta without Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth , Drannith Magistrate and without Deafening Silence / Rule of Law / Archon of Emeria feels kinda wrong to me.

Hey, welcome back :) I like MoxField's site design and deck builder much more than TappedOut, but TappedOut has the community and that's why I stay here. I build casual/competitive budget decks, that's my niche, but that doesn't mean that I don't know about more expensive cards to use and upgrades to make for a higher budget. It's great you've increased your budget to $800 that will really help with lands, tutors and combo cards like Phyrexian Altar .

I like Varina more as a Zombie Commander because I like to assemble Zombie reanimation combos. Varina helps much more and is much faster then Scarab with reanimation since her loot ability fuels reanimation and lets me also potentially draw a reanimator. Wonder is busted if you're attacking with Zombies and Varina can setup Wonder much easier than Scarab. White with Varina is helpful as a third support color for artifact/enchantment removal to combat opponent popular hate cards ( Rest in Peace , Ghostly Prison , Rule of Law ).

zAzen7977 on Win cons: locks

Adding to what plakjekaas mentioned, the following cards also create a lock preventing players from casting spells from their hands:

Possibility Storm + Rule of Law or Archon of Emeria or Drannith Magistrate . The Magistrate is the best option because it only locks down opponents and costs 1 less mana than the other two options.

Don't forget Notion Thief / Hullbreacher / Narset, Parter of Veils in combination with Reforge the Soul / Windfall / Winds of Change and the like. It's a one-time effect, but usually stops all opponents right in their tracks, as much as any lock would.

Not sure if that counts for your criteria, but it's worth a mention.

Also Possibility Storm + Rule of Law to forbid all spells cast from hand.

Cards in the side that I think could work in the main are Dungrove Elder , Ambuscade , Rancor , Shield of the Oversoul , and maybe Ironscale Hydra . Cards that fit the general idea of the sideboard include Kogla, the Titan Ape , Mold Shambler , Reclamation Sage , and Yasharn, Implacable Earth . Other common SB options in these colors could be Stony Silence , Rest in Peace , Leyline of Sanctity , Selfless Spirit , Kor Firewalker , Rule of Law , Force of Vigor , Qasali Pridemage , and Scavenging Ooze .

At this point, this deck is far enough removed from the deathtouch lure plan that I think it could be worth swapping out those cards to go all-in on bogles or aura/hexproof instead. Cards like Slippery Bogle and Silhana Ledgewalker tend to pair well with aura buffs like Spirit Mantle and Ethereal Armor .
