Hello friends,

(Disclaimer: My first post, so let me know if I need to make edits.)

Could anyone provide some feedback on my two decks? I’m getting back into this after 15 years. Yay. For now this is just for casual play. I don’t mind spending a few dollars, just not many dollars. Thanks for stopping by and for any and all help!

Your manabase is super clunky. Losing turns to it in a tempo shell hurts-it feels like there needs to be a shift in focus- either dedicating to midrange value spells, or tempo, or grindy hand disruption.

Second, plan a sideboard- sure with burn all over the meta, mainboard lifegain is cool, but its important to know what you are replacing it with in other matchups. I also don't feel you have enough ETB value for Dramatic Rescue . If it was a Soulherder etb value list, perhaps.

If you want to play a budget tempo list, focus in on one colour for your interaction package- all blue, all white, or all black. This will let you run a bunch of monocolour snow lands and fixing. Without aether vial, you will want to run a higher proportion of 1 drops- blue for Spectral Sailor and Mausoleum Wanderer .

If you want to play budget midrange value, focus on going to two colours. Either U/W permission or U/B(w) unearth value. Playing unearth at instant speed is pretty good when its targeting a Spell Queller . That said, you will need mana fixing, and the cheap reliable way to do that is mostly mana rocks. This can be less than perfect.

If you want to play grindy, go mono-black in spells, play a lot of symetrical discard, and build your spirits into 'amazing topdecks', either through res value or Spectral Sailor card-draw.

I think you should define the route you plan to take the deck. Two ways I can see building would be to play Control, OR play aggressive fliers. Melding the two might make it harder to achieve what you're going for. With that being said, I have a few suggestions:

I hope this helps guide your deck building into a more focused direction. Let me know if you need any more help!

Hey MrBoombastic thanks for the feedback!

Taking on board what you've said here's what I'm thinking:

Trying to lean more into that card advantage leading to some big amass off of Commence the Endgame and hopefully have a big-ish Jace's Projection out there too.

Love to hear some thoughts!

Hello! Just wondering what are the reasonings of the 3x and 2x instead of 4x in some of your creatures (like Brazen Borrower and Spectral Sailor )? Faerie Vandal may not be as good as those if you want to play at flash speed because you'd use the card draw spells in your opponent's turn, which would rarely add up to 2 draws. I like the list and the main idea :) hopefully there will be space for mono-blue tempo in standard because the deck is a lot of fun! Have you tried it out?

Hey, nice start. If fliers are the direction you're going my advice is to look at Edric decks for more inspiration. Many Edric strategies use little fliers and unblockable creatures to draw cards and cast extra turn spells. You could do similar; little fliers to draw cards and untap your lands for ramp or mana for repeatable mana sinks that you can use at instant speed.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Battle Screech
  • Migratory Route
  • Bower Passage
  • Beguiler of Wills
  • Galecaster Colossus
  • Azami, Lady of Scrolls
  • Secure the Wastes
  • Sage Owl

If your budget is $250, you have quite a bit of room for upgrades, though I won't fault you for saving some money. If you were to upgrade that far I'd make these changes:

-4 Figure of Destiny , -2 Vapor Snag ; +2 Topplegeist , +2 Spectral Sailor , +2 Supreme Phantom

-1-2 Selfless Spirit , +1-2 Unsettled Mariner

-4 Unsubstantiate , +4 Remand

-1 Dovin's Veto , +1 Spell Pierce

-4 Mana Leak , +4 Path to Exile
