Hatred - Super double edged sword. Life loss is additional cost to cast, somewhat telegraphed, but with lifelink and commander damage can be powerful. You can also target an opponent's creature attacking another opponent, bonus points if it's their commander.

Peer into the Abyss - Combo with sheoldred, can be potentially great on it's own.

Sensei's Divining Top - Great on it's own, even better with shuffling effects/fetches. Combos with bolas and aetherflux

Any reason u don't run the Aetherflux Reservoir + Leshrac's Sigil + K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth combo?

Kind of hard to provide meaningful suggestions when the commander switches like that. I will say, that's a pretty cool idea!

At the risk of sounding too unimpactful, perhaps a Sensei's Divining Top to go with Rings? Rings + temple + coffers = are you stated. Adding top allows to draw and cast your entire deck. It's obviously useful on it's own, even better with shuffling effects like fetchlands (which rings turns into ramp) and urborg allows you to keep the fetches "as swamps" while saving them for rings. I made a deck off of that philosophy so that's my bias.

Should you ever want to remove some of the less impactful cards, Mind Twist can put in some work. It's counterspell bait at worst, it can be ramped into in early game crippling one player, and late game just put someone in top decking mode assuming they have no meaningful board presence.

I think it's a great first start jake1511. Nice avg cmc of 3.52. You might want to increase the speed a tad but given it's a colorless deck that's easier said than done.

Howling Mine - Without a way to untap, it provides opponents more advantage. I understand you need draw, but IMO, this isn't the way to do it

Lithoform Engine - Winmore

Mirror Shield - IMO hexproof redundancy is not needed, other ability is not typically useful. Really depends on how much redundancy you need

Pariah's Shield - I don't see a synergy. Put it on your commander and hope it tanks the damage? 8 mana total is steep

Portal to Phyrexia - Way too costly for what it does.

Ratchet Bomb - Depends on how often you actually can find it useful. Usually charging it for a few turns hoping to get the right amount of counters is difficult.

Shield of Kaldra - Without other Kalrdra, this isn't helpful enough

Sword of Hours - This is not a 1/1 counter deck

The Immortal Sun - Anti-synergy with 3 of your walkers, potentially swap for Staff of Nin for similar effect without anti-synergy

Trading Post - I like the saccing artifacts to draw, making tokens in a pinch. Just doesn't feel like it does enough

Vexing Puzzlebox - Mana rock for 3cmc with a unlikely ability to reliably use

Vorrac Battlehorns - Unimpactful

Aladdin's Lamp - WAY too costly

Anduril, Flame of the West - No benefit to use tokens, aside from skullclamp maybe

Azor's Gateway - Hoping this goes 5 turns uninterrupted is a big ask

Brass Knuckles - Kind of cool but not good on it's own. I do sort of like it, plus the art

Golem-Skin Gauntlets - Kind of cool, but not good on it's own.

Basalt Monolith - Ramp + Combo with Forsaken Monument for

Cloud Key/Semblance Anvil - Ramp

Sensei's Divining Top - Dig

Cloud Key/Anvil/Artifact cost Reducer + Mystic Forge + Top = Draw your entire deck

Expedition Map - Find the land you need, ensure you get your land drop.

Might want to add 1-2 more lands depends on your ending avg cmc and amount of rocks + personal playstyle.

Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant - Recover from a boardwipe

Darksteel Citadel - Artifact land for Karn

Mycosynth Lattice - Lots of shenanigans, super double edged sword.

Lattice + Karn, the Great Creator = Hard lock. Karn has a lot of useful abilities on his own, ignoring lattice.

Cut Voltaic Key - There are only like 4 rocks that go positive with it, you don't get much value of out it.

Cut Gravestorm - Nice repetitive draw but often times player's gy's are filled and this won't help mid-late game.

Cut Soul Stair Expedition and Epicure of Blood - There are much better cards to add

Cut Lotus Field + Lotus Vale - Anti synergy to coffers, one of the lotuses can be strip mined against. No synergy benefit for the deck. Swap them with either a Deserted Temple, Thespian's Stage, or more swamps. Should you wish, including a fetchland or 2 is a nice instant speed way to bring out bojuka bog. Moreover, Urborg allows you to keep your lands as swamps and then shuffle the deck with top should you not like your upcoming draws

Introduction to Annihilation - I know you need artifact/enchantment removal. Add in a Feed the Swarm and/or a Karn Liberated if it's really given you issues.

Bolas's Citadel + Aetherflux Reservoir + Sensei's Divining Top = Good times!

Some lower costed ramp to get your commander out more quickly such as Dark Ritual and Mind Stone are helpful

Imp's Mischief - "Counter" counterspells while redirecting targeted removal, draw and extra turns! Given your deck is commander reliant + Your lich enchantment, this can serve you very well.

Hi Profet93! Thanks for your reply. I think I want advice on overall deck balancing (mana curve, deck composition, removal/wrath/card advantage) and some combos. I know Mystic Forge and Sensei's Divining Top can be quite good

Sanctum of Ugin - Tutor

Eye of Ugin - Tutor + Ramp

Buried Ruin - Recursion

Mystic forge + Sensei's Divining Top + artifact cost reducer = draw your whole deck

Basalt Monolith + forsaken monument =

Rings of Brighthearth + basalt + 2 mana = + top = draw + cast your entire deck

Rings + voltaic key + Everflowing Chalice (4 counters) =

Metal worker + voltaic key + rings =

Scorched Ruins + Rings + Deserted Temple = . Temple has the added benefit of politics or ramp with urza land.

Emrakul, the Promised End + Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant = Strong synergy, each piece is good on it's like (like many of the combos I've listed)

Karn, the Great Creator + lattice = Hard lock

To synergize with darksteel monolith, you could add some flash (which also has the added benefit of limiting your overextension into a boardwipe) such as Vedalken Orrery/Liberator, Urza's Battlethopter/Skittering Cicada

Blinkmoth Well + Blinkmoth Urn = One sided ramp. Well can deal with opposing artifacts and urn always makes you ahead. Should you feel inclined, Winter Orb might be worth it (if you don't like friends) as you can break parity with it. Even if you can't, you use primarily artifact ramp anyways. It can help slow down the faster pace decks.

Sure thing! Bloodchief Ascension & Mindcrank create an infinite mill and damage cycle.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed & Triskelion create an infinite damage cycle where you remove counters from him to do 1 damage to a player & the rest to kill himself. Then he is returned to the battlefield and you repeat. This also works with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed & Walking Ballista, but he needs a third card like Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist to create the infinite cycle of damage/life gain. If you can’t get one of those two cards, Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos will create infinite sacrifice cycles. Then you could also create infinite Eldrazi tokens/treasures with either Pitiless Plunderer or Pawn of Ulamog.

Next is the Ashnods alter & Pitiless Plunderer combos with either Bloodsoaked Champion or Reassembling Skeleton that can infinitely sacrifice to create infinite colorless mana for cards like Exsanguinate.

Finally if you have Sensei's Divining Top, Bolas's Citadel, & Sheoldred, the Apocalypse you can draw a card with Sensei’s, gain 2 life, then pay 1 life to cast Sensei’s, and repeat until you can find a combo while gaining life with each draw.

Hope this helps!

Profet93:I already have Bolas's Citadel in the deck, so it would just come down to what to replace with the Sensei's Divining Top...I'll figure somethin out...
