with a 6 cmc commander I would def recommend more ramp and mana rocks. at least 5 mana rocks would probably be good. I recommend Talisman of Progress and Talisman of Dominance and Fellwar Stone and Arcane Signet.

I'm at work, so I can't do a thoroughly search for you, but I believe you might get inspiration from Nekusar, the Mindrazer decks. His most effective builds are Windfall-like cards plus Megrim/Underworld Dreams effects with Waste Not out.

Also, run all 2-cmc untapped ramp you can get your hands on: it'll make your deck run smoothly as butter. Azorius Signet, Orzhov Signet, Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Hierarchy, Fellwar Stone.

If you're interested, I can give you more comprehensive advice once I get home. Your build might benefit from some tweaks.

I would recommend running a lot more draw engines... fortunately there's a LOT of budget(ish) friendly options in these colors.

Reconnaissance Mission, Bident of Thassa, and Coastal Piracy are some of your best options here. Skullclamp, Court of Grace, Plumb the Forbidden, Tocasia's Welcome, and Mystic Remora are all options that fit your theme. A few creatures that draw cards but are outside your tribe worth considering include Starscream, Power Hungry  Flip, Aerial Extortionist, and Welcoming Vampire.

I would also recommend making room for Azorius Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Progress, Arcane Signet, and Fellwar Stone.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Alela's Aerodynamics: A Crash Course

Major update!

The deck has been running well when I draw the right cards, but stalls out or is clunky when I don't draw good cards. I think the best starting point to smooth the deck out is by reducing the amount of counterspells to open up room for smoother mana (in the form of mana rocks), spells that asymmetrically counteract something but benefit me, and some stronger walls that - although will cost more - will have better payoffs. That all being said, here's the ins/outs.

Out: An Offer You Can't Refuse... Wall of Vines... Stoneskin... Wall of Resistance... Treefolk Umbra... Mana Leak... Bane's Contingency... Wall of Stolen Identity... Vedalken Orrery... Wall of Ice... Render Silent

In: Heroic Intervention... Fog Bank... Snake Umbra... Wingmantle Chaplain... Brave the Sands... Talisman of Curiosity... Talisman of Unity... Talisman of Progress... Wall of Nets... Eerie Interlude... Champion's Helm

A lot of card swaps which we'll test out. Some may get reversed back in. That's the fun of developing a deck over time!

This looks like fun but it also looks a bit (too) slow as most cards in your deck have an average CMC of 5+ and it will take on average five turns to summon your commander in order to cheat your creatures into play. I think there are ways to keep your deck budget, while still increasing its speed. First off, I think adding the talismans (Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Progress) would help.

Second, a few cheap scrying/draw resources like Portent, Esper Charm, Index, Telling Time, Otherworldly Gaze, Opt, Dream Cache, Serum Visions and Sphinx's Revelation can really help you find the cards you need a bit quicker.

Hope this helps.

No Sol Ring, Orzhov Signet, Azorius Signet, Dimir Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Fellwar Stone, or Arcane Signet? 32 lands with a 3.63 avg. cmc isn't going to consistently work. 32 lands needs a cmc at least 3.0 and under and it still needs about 10+ pieces of ramp still.

I'd suggest running ALL of these to help smooth out your curve and lower your cmc a bit. You'll notice a significant uptick in consistency.

I have an Esper deck built (different commanders) but it may give you some ideas still. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Alela's Aerodynamics: A Crash Course

Hey, you're welcome.

If you wanted to a couple of lesser lands here could be upgraded within the budget?

Other options are to replace them for some less expensive utility lands?

These land options are lower priced ones, there's many others that are higher price that are better such as Inventors' Fair and City of Brass.

The Talismans in the sideboard could replace some of the Signets?


You're light here with low mana cost ramp and have a pretty high mana curve. More ramp could help gameplay. These are better ramp options specifically with Urza as Commander than the other Signets/mana rocks. The 2 drop artifact creature mana dorks can be helpful to cast Urza quicker since they count towards his artifact creature affinity and can make colored mana.

This is a ramp package to consider? It's 16 sources, most important 14 sources of low mana cost ramp with Urza, Monument and Tezz at high end. Thought Vessel is a good card, but it turns off discarding hand down to 7 cards which can fuel artifact reanimation. Solemn Simulacrum is another good card, but I think it's too much mana here since there's better 4 drops for power and/or help more Urza and Constructs. Sculpting Steel is excellent in multiplayer Commander and it can count towards ramp because it can become an artifact ramp source.
