The converted mana cost of a card, or "mana value", as it is called on more modern cards, is an inherent characteristic of the card, and doesn't change with how much mana you're actually spending to cast it.

A Negate is a card with a converted mana cost of 2. No amount of Glowriders or Sapphire Medallions can change that. It changes how much mana you pay to cast the card, but not the converted mana cost, which will always be 2.

First things first. Add 22 Island to get up to the card minimum, and round out your lands. You want to cut at least 300$ based on what you've said, so getting rid of Kindred Discovery, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, Cavern of Souls, Sapphire Medallion, Rhystic Study, Cyclonic Rift, and Aether Vial would cut about 335$ off your deck cost. I'd replace 4 or 5 of those cards with islands again to keep your land count where it should be. Don't get me wrong, they're all fantastic, and with a few exceptions would greatly power up the deck from their inclusion. The only ones that I don't think justify their costs in this deck are sapphire medallion, oboro, and aether vial.

Your deck is also a little light on finishers. I personally really like Rite of Replication to suddenly build a huge board, some other great alternatives (at varying price points) are Blatant Thievery or my personal favorite Expropriate.

This is a bit more up to personal choice, but I'm really not a fan of cantrips in a deck like this. If it were me, I'd cut Ponder, Preordain, and Brainstorm for things that are a bit more impactful. You're drawing a lot of cards anyway, so card selection isn't as important as raw draw power. I'd consider something like Overflowing Insight or even something simpler like Weave Fate.

I have no doubt more refinements will become apparent as you playtest, but I hope that helps!

great list, I also own a Bruvac deck very similar to yours, I'm using petitioners but at this point, I do not own a Thrumming Stone.

In your list you do not run some cards like:

More ramp - Sapphire Medallion,Arcane Signet, Mind Stone, your land count is few 33, and only 3 ramp rock, no artifact tutors, I think will be hard sometimes to have 6 mana to cast Maddening Cacophony and kill all the table or recast Bruvac more times.

Protection - You ran 10 counterspells but not Lightning Greaves effects

What is your opinion about Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo? it needs rocks to be infinite, but cheaper than Intruder Alarm + Thrumming Stone. I do not run it now, but I was thinking on make some room in the deck for it.

I do run the Grindstone + Painter's combo and I included some artifact tutors FabricateWhir of Invention, also Sphinx's Tutelage, to have other combos to win.

Back to Basics will be a great inclusion in your deck. Since I'm not running Thrumming Stone I have only 23 Petitioners, but I'm planning to remove some cards to reach at least 25, and take advantage of cards like Herald's Horn that I also ran on the deck.

Romer Sapphire Medallion is in the deck under the "Cost Reduction" tag :)

I am on the fence with Memory Crystal though as enough copies of the other cost reducers will deal with the buyback spells

Bei so vielen 'target Land' sachen, sieht das ja fast aus wie ein grünes Deck x)

Für Orvar finde ich Chamber of Manipulation und Cloudpost sehr witzig.

Wieso Aquitect's Will ? Um das unendlich zu verdoppeln und deine Lib zu ziehen?

Combos: 1. Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal 1. Whim of Volrath + Gilded Lotus / Gilded Lotus Funktioniert Sapphire Medallion mit Buyback? Da man das Medallion verdoppeln kann, würde das Dinge vereinfachen :)

Du hast Mystic Remora oO?

Quickspell on What to Do with Treachery?

shadow63 I see!

1empyrean Hmm... So I have, say, Sythis, Harvest's Hand . I play Treachery , untap 5 lands and draw a card. Because I control both effects, I can order them in such way that I first untap and then draw. I use 1 mana to activate Words of Wind and take back Treachery while everyone has to bounce something. But then I am 1 mana short to recast Treachery unless I have something like Sapphire Medallion , isn't that so? (Obviously Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign can cast Treachery for free, but it's only once per turn.) So it's really like a complicated but repeatable Cyclonic Rift with the upside of also eventually forcing my opponents to bounce their lands which really should end the game.
It seems then that Tuvasa the Sunlit would be a reasonable commander. I see now what can be done, thank you!

Hi darksideownedu !

Your deck seems really cool. I'm not a big fan of Bad Gift Zedruu but I have to admit it's an archetype that works.

I don't know if you've already played the deck, but does cards like Glacial Fortress trigger all the time ? Personally I don't run this kind of land, but I have less basic land than you. Also, fetchland are incredible cards in a manabase. If you have money for, add Arid Mesa , Flooded Strand and Scalding Tarn to your deck.

For the deck itself, it seems very consistent. I honestly think Thought Lash is a bad card : it take in average 13 turn to mill 90 cards (counting the natural draw of the opponent) and 10 turns to get rid of 60 cards.

Also, I wonder why you run Witch Hunt . It seems not really synergistic with Zedruu's life gain and cards like Angel of Destiny or Aetherflux Reservoir .

Finally, medallion cards (like Sapphire Medallion ) seems really good, I will try them in my deck some game to see how strong they can be. I advise you to run Thought Vessel rather than Spellbook (no maximal hand size while ramping ? Amazing !). Pentad Prism and Sphere of the Suns are pretty good rock to give away.

I love your idea to run Angel of Destiny : that's a so good political card, I've never seen it used like this.

In a nutshell, I think it's a really cool deck to play, Zedruu's ability is what make me fall in love with her, so I love seeing how people exploit it. Have fun, and don't forget to spray joy with our MotherGoat !
