, : Copy target instant or sorcery spell you control. You may choose new targets for the copy.

cards that help produce extra copies, like Twinning Staff or Illusionist's Bracers work really well with drafna

EVENcast on Volo's Sack of Monsters

Nice list! Just so you know, token doublers like Adrix and Nev, Twincasters and Doubling Season do not work with volo! The specific wording on volo says “a copy of a creature spell BECOMES a token” and this does not count as “creating a token” which is what adrix/nev and doubling season trigger off of, so sadly no extra tokens will be created. I’d definitely recommend running Twinning Staff, which doubles volo triggers! Also Strionic Resonator has the same effect, but at a cost. Check out my Volo primer A Monster’s Guide to Volo [Primer] for more ideas! Volo is one of my all time favorite commanders and there’s lots of great tech out there!

Twinning Staff would go good in this setup.

Isochron Scepter will trigger Guttersnipe and Talrand, Sky Summoner. Isochron Scepter casts the copied card from exile. Guttersnipe and Talrand, Sky Summoner will only trigger when an instant or sorcery is cast.

I think Spelltwine doesn't work with your commander, because you are copying the cards and casting them instead of copying the spell. If that's right than Mizzix's Mastery and Arcane Bombardment also wouldn't work, sadly. Maybe they are good enough to keep anyway? Not sure. Cards with the Cipher mechanic are also so close to working but I don't think they do. This is actually kind of hard to brew around! Ugh, God-Eternal Kefnet wouldn't work either, ew.

Immolating Gyre and Volcanic Vision are really good boardwipes in a spells-y deck... as is Cyclonic Rift, which you definitely should still run. In fact, all the overload spells are pretty sweet here, since they only target things you don't control, so if you copy them opponent's can't even pay the 4 life to hit one of your things. Makes Vandalblast and friends possibly worth it.

Radiate is such a fun card that could do some real crazy things here! Shoutout to Radiant Performer as well.

Sublime Epiphany and Volcanic Offering Might not be good enough here.

I really like Narset's Reversal, Split Decision, and the demonstrate cards in this deck! Obviously Twinning Staff is fun here too.

It will be interesting to see if Lithoform Engine or Pyromancer's Goggles will be good enough here (I like Primal Amulet  Flip). Maybe more spells that copy spells are better than these chunkier repeatable ones? Things like Galvanic Iteration or Reiterate if you like the buyback better. Or Increasing Vengeance for the beefier flashback. Hell, if its politics Bonus Round could be really fun. Chef's Kiss is a newer one that I forgot about

Maybe this is the kind of deck where Thrilling Encore shines?

Is Stunning Reversal here to try and copy and save other people with?? Seems like it may not be good enough when you have access to blue for card draw/protection anyway.

I've found the expertise cycle (Baral's Expertise, Yahenni's Expertise, maybe not Kari Zev's Expertise) to be really fun with spell copying, since they in turn let you cast more spells themselves.

I wish, as I always do, that Cloven Casting wasn't soooo bad. Or like, any of the cards with Replicate. Those would be so perfect. Maybe Shattering Spree is good enough but I think it isn't. Ugh, that makes me think about how you're definitely supposed to play storm cards in this deck. Are there any storm cards that aren't miserable? Mind's Desire maybe...

Is Charmbreaker Devils good enough?

Wild Ricochet is an oldie but maybe enough of a goodie here with the copying theme?

Harmonic Prodigy since your commander is a wizard isn't a terrible idea...

Humble Defector might be too cute.

Gotta have Rakdos Charm! Honestly there might be other charms that are worth it to like Crosis's Charm, but definitely Rakdos Charm.

Cruel Ultimatum is the ultimate chunky spell and you're even in the right colors for it!

Also Chaos Warp is still good enough as universal instant speed removal and kind of fun/politics-y as well

plakjekaas on Infinite combo possibly?

You're not generating additional copies of Wild Ricochet the way you describe it. You get the original, the Wort conspire copy, and nothing else. The conspire copy can resolve targeting the original, but then you'll have the same stack as before, only the conspire copy has turned into a Ricochet copy. You can generate infinite Magecraft triggers, because you're copying infinite spells, but those infinite copies are all used to copy the copy-spell again. You'll end up with a Jaya's Immolating Inferno, the original Wild Ricochet and a copy of Ricochet that will probably target the same Inferno when you decide to break the loop.

What you need is a Twinning Staff, to generate two copies instead of one whenever you copy spells, to generate more than one Ricochet copy, so one can target the original Ricochet, while others can actually copy the Inferno more times.
