Hello fellow Gifts Player!

Should you not already own the Search for Azcanta  Flip i would strongly advise againts them, as they are too slow for the current meta and instead invest the saved money for an Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite as this card is crucial for creature decks like Merfolk, Humans, etc. and in my opinion by far the best reanimation target.

As JKRIce already said, you want to diversify important cards like your boardwipes to always hit one in a gifts package. My budget recommendations for this are Languish Ritual of Soot Day of Judgment (worse but regeneration is rarely relevant)

I can recommend Murderous Cut As a 1-of removal with 4 of Thought Scour as your primary Cantrip in the place of Serum Visions to fuel the Delve. This also gives you the potential to accidentally mill your Reanimation Targets and your unburial, which will greatly accelerate your gameplan. Then you can also add one or two Tasigur, the Golden Fang for early pressure or a strong late game plan.

But all in all you already put together a great deck. I hope I was able to help :)

Just going by Scryfall (even going as deep as <0.90c in terms of value rather than the full dollar) there are quite a few that spring up that I'd be interested in seeing made on such an extreme budget:

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter -- Simic Control/Tempo is something I'd be super interested to see on a budget, not gonna lie.

Tasigur, the Golden Fang -- Recursive politics on a budget?

Kefnet the Mindful -- You could easily do Mystic Sanctuary loops here, there are a couple of spells that require you to bounce a land to cast, like Deprive and Tragic Lesson.

Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter -- Only because I have a budget plan for her myself, I'd be interested in seeing another take on it!

Darigaaz Reincarnated -- This is more of a pet idea for me, I love Darigaaz.

Rosheen Meanderer/Hallar, the Firefletcher -- Both are kind of unique in Gruul colours so it'd be interesting to see either made on a budget.

Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro -- If you're looking for a tribal commander, Shamans are a very unique tribe.

Those are just some that spring to mind for me looking over the list, whether you run with any of them or not I hope you enjoy the process of budgeteering! I know I do whenever I get the itch!

Hi Daron6! Thanks for very much for your suggestions, they're really valuable!

I've followed almost all of your tips, however I have a question regarding a BIG finisher. Is Pearl Lake Ancient really that big and strong of a creature, or can it be substituted with something else like Thraximundar? Or does it's inclusion by you come from the fact that it can stack and can't be countered? Also aren't Nicol Bolas planeswalkers enough of a finisher, or do you feel like I need creatures specifically? Tasigur, the Golden Fang is a nice addition, I'll definitely add it!

Removing Mind Funeral also enticed me to exchange Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker for Kess, Dissident Mage to have additional counters always available from the grave.

Overall I feel like here's a lot of card draw - 15 in total from various cards (counting Flashback from Think Twice. Don't you feel like that's a little too much?

I've also replaced a few basic lands with Dual Check lands, they're pretty cheap and having two or more basic lands at any point in the game shouldn't be that hard to achieve.

Hi! I'm not a control player (I only play tempo-delver decks), so I'll try to help you.

1) Removal, 4 electrolyze is a LOT, seriously play 1-2. Terminates and other stuff is OK.

2) 24 lands, I would recommend playing more two colour lands, like those ones who enters tapped unless you control an island/mountain or swamps, is not a good idea fill the deck with basics in a 3 colour deck.

3) Go to 4 inquisition and 4 pushes.

4) Where are the cantrips lol? : 4 Serum Visions yes or yes and 4 opts. Think Twice for card advantage.

5) counters: I have a recipe for counters and works 90% of the times, 3-4 Mana Leak, 1-2 Spell Snare, playing control decks I would recommend Cryptic Command but is not budget friendly xddd, so go to a 3 Mana counter (or Logic Knot) and 2 negates.

6) This is not a mill deck so Mind Funeral doesn't fit at this deck.

7) you need a BIG finisher like 2 Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Pearl Lake Ancient.

Well, hope I helped you a bit :).

Destroyerbirb Thanks for the upvote friend! I saw a few 5-0 lists running one copy of Tasigur, the Golden Fang as a hard to deal with value threat and was curious to try it for myself. Wasn't as good as I hoped so I cut it for one more Snapcaster Mage. I found Spell Queller and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar to be quite strong. I may fit the 4th Spell Queller back in.

Grixxas Love it. Just one question. Why the Tasigur, the Golden Fang? It hurts you with Dark Confidant, and you aren't filling your graveyard fast. I'd take it our for another Snapcaster Mage.

+1 from me.

any_response on Sultai Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

Hello swarm intelligence,

I am working on a deck idea i had some weeks ago, a sultai deck using ETBs to control the board using cards like Sidisi's Faithful, Silumgar Sorcerer, Frilled Mystic, Acolyte of Affliction or Reclamation Sage together with Escape Protocol in a cycling shell.

The commander of the deck will be Tasigur, the Golden Fang.

As i have many different ETBs and i want to get as many of them as possible onto the battlefield, i want to include Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, also to be able to use them all at instant speed.

I know this deck will not be played at a competitive level, but i would like to include 1-2 combo lines with Yisan. As i have Tasigur, the Golden Fang, any infitite coloured mana combo would suffice (at least for a win at sorcery speed), one thought of mine was Peregrine Drake and Deadeye Navigator, but i hope you have some other and unique ideas i could include. Preferably, if possible, without any effect targeting a card in a graveyard, because i would like to run Ground Seal as a control piece.

I hope you can breathe some life into this idea of mine, be as creative and convoluted as you please, i am looking forward to it!

Thanks a lot MagicalHacker I think I'm going to make Tasigur, the Golden Fang. I don't have any decks on my account yet because I've been to lazy to upload them.
