Simian Spirit Guide

I love your support creatures but I feel like you should bring in a Snapcaster Mage. That and Mission Briefing will help to recur counterspells and removal on opponents turn since Kess, Dissident Mage can't do it.

This deck as shown now seems more "turbo" than "control" to me with that Ad Nauseam, Simian Spirit Guide, Grim Monolith etc. If you want to lean in to the turbo storm line consider Baral, Chief of Compliance, Archmage Emeritus and Yawgmoth's Will

Baral, Chief of Compliance + Lotus Petal + Brain Freeze + Underworld Breach = storm off till your own deck is gone and then usually have enough Brain Freeze copys to mill all opponents.

There are ways to make a storm or magecraft win with Archmage Emeritus, Storm-Kiln Artist and Underworld Breach but that would mean raising the curve and running cards that are bad topdeck by themselves.

+1 this is a proper cedh deck! Check out my "cruel control" version of Kess cedh Pox Diamond to see what I mean about the difference between "turbo/storm" and "control". Also I have a pretty extensive maybe board there that might have some spice edhrec won't show you.

Elvish Spirit Guide and Simian Spirit Guide are pretty budget mana acceleration cards. Lotus Petal also isn't a Mox, so it's decent. Murmuring Mystic as well is pretty good, and Ral, Storm Conduit is really strong with Repeated Reverberation.

Fervor -> Mass Hysteria?

Also, Rite of Flame, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Mana Echoes, and Simian Spirit Guide can help you ramp. Mana Echoes is really only great with X-burn spells and such, though, so it's not for every Krenko deck. It would be fire with Staff of Domination, though ^^

kookoo - so I tried adding Lotus Petal in place of four lands, and it works great! can totally give the deck the gas it needs in the early game to take off, while also proccing Birgi's extra mana since it's a cast spell--which is what makes it a touch better than Simian Spirit Guide, here. thanks again for the recommendations!

kookoo - hi!

I can definitely see Simian Spirit Guide here. the fact that it's effectively free means it can smooth out the deck's hiccups and occasionally help it go off a turn earlier. ditto for Lotus Petal. I'll consider adding them!

as for the others, I think they're just a touch too slow and/or inconsistent. I love Wheel of Misfortune, for example. it's a personal favorite of mine. but if you get outbid, it can easily ruin your game, and that's a big built-in risk to add to a deck like this one.

as for Ricochet Trap - it's a mana cheaper, but Reverberate is so good here because it can effectively act as another mana spell, which is huge. in fact, if you copy Seething Song, it's actually the best mana spell in this deck. that's a little too good to pass up, even if it is a bit more expensive!

I wonder if you added some Simian Spirit Guides, Lotus Petals and some Mox Opals or Chrome Moxs, maybe a Wheel of Misfortune, would this be good in legacy?

I also recommend Ricochet Trap, because while it can't copy a spell like Reverberate can, it can counter a spell for less mana.

God-Eternal-Magic-Player aw good to hear! Yeah not hyper competitive sadly but who knows? If we still had Simian Spirit Guide this would work crazy good
