what kind of interaction are you running besides the hermit? I get that you have some killer plays with flicker spell being able to sneak in a brilliant counter spell by flipping him back.

Maybe some amount of Remand to help you tempo them out as well as a few Familiar's Ruse to combo with the Watcher for Tomorrow.

Good luck!

Some thoughts:

  • Glorious Protector and Deafening Silence are sudeboard cards at best. I’d suggest ditching them from mainboard.

  • i’m not sure you’re running enough lands here. If you don’t start with a card draw-engine with Wall of Omens and Ephemerate, I can see you being stuck on 2 lands too often. I’d suggest going up to 22-23 lands

  • I’m not convinced you need Flickerwisp or Venser, the Sojourner. They just don’t seem great here & you akready have plenty-enough good ways to flicker for value. I’d suggest replacing them with more good flicker-targets, some suggestions below.

  • I can highly recommend Watcher for Tomorrow. It helps dig for the exact card you need in any given matchup, which can get you out of some sticky situations.

  • Stonehorn Dignitary and Venser, Shaper Savant are both cheap, and can both be powerhouses in these kinds of decks. Including 1-2 of each mainboard would improve your deck considerably.

  • It may be a little beyond your budget, but adding 1-3 Skyclave Apparition would work well here also.

Just to show you, this deck also. It’s obviously going to be out of the price-range for the moment, but if you’re able to include green in your landbase, you get access to a ton of powerful (& cheap) cards that love being flickered. It’s possibly a direction to work towards as more of a long-term goal.

may be worth playing Professor of Symbology and a few lesson card in sb. its a pretty budget package and effective.

if your running flicker wisp then a couple Glasspool Mimic  Flip may also be worth running

Restoration Angel is currently around $1.

Watcher for Tomorrow and another solid wall of omens effect.

Yorion, Sky Nomad as a companion is probably also a good call.

some other good budget options.

regular Elite Guardmage, Epochrasite, Faerie Seer, Reflector Mage, Sagu Mauler, Akroma, Angel of Fury

curve toppers Angel of Sanctions, Cloudblazer, Dream Eater,

Lavinia of the Tenth makes a lock with soulherder

Fain, the Broker Is ok, but a bit slow. I would consider it in a budget list possibly, but I think there are generally better sacrifice outlets you could pick from.

Kalain, Reclusive Painter I don't like. you need to devote a lot of space to treasure production and there's really not a lot of cards that fit the bill on that end, and it's too limited to rely only on his own ability to make treasures. in a pirate focused list where you're making a lot of treasures it might be a better fit, but in general I wouldn't bother with it.

Plumb the Forbidden is definitely a playable card, I generally steer more towards creature based card draw like Baleful Strix, Watcher for Tomorrow and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician since they tend to provide better value over a game, but you could certainly play this as well. I have it in my budget list, although the price has gotten a bit higher lately.

Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer Doesn't really do a lot here. I think it's a much better card in formats like legacy and modern than in commander and it doesn't really create the right kind of value for a marchesa deck the way I run it (aristocrats) he doesn't have evasion and is a fairly small body, so you'll probably find it hard to connect and so I think a lot of the time he's going to just sit around and do nothing.

TraceT

Resculpt is definitely something you could play. It's pretty much directly comparable to Reality Shift and you could certainly play either or both.

Path to Exile isn't great in the current metagame, since you're running three colors I suggest Prismatic Ending

I'm not sure 4 Opt and 3 Remand is good when you could be running more creatures instead. Watcher for Tomorrow is a decent one to help you dig. Wall of Omens is another good draw engine that can stop aggro and walls Ragavan.

Also I think you should heavily consider Yorion, Sky Nomad as companion. Free cards are just really good, and there are definitely enough good flicker creatures in bant colors to go up to 80 cards. You could also include the Stoneforge Mystic package with the extra space to give the deck a more clear "must answer" wincon besides just generating value with etbs.

Some other creatures I think you should consider are Solitude, Endurance for sideboard grave hate, Skyclave Apparition, Noble Hierarch, Aether Vial (lets you "flash in" those non-flash creatures).

Looking forward to Modern Horizons, there are some promising options.

Step Through is at the very least a strictly better upgrade of Vedalken AEthermage , as the spell half is actually useful and the wizardcycling cost is lower. Of course, more tutors, more better, so we might end up with both.

Harmonic Prodigy is one of the best cards for this deck that I've seen in awhile. Its basically another copy of Naban, Dean of Iteration , though since it is non-legendary one can see for some broken plays if we play it in the same turn as, say, Watcher for Tomorrow . I'm sure we'll find room for this somewhere. Looking forward to the new set!

Hey, good upgrades so far of the precon on a budget. Nice upgrades of Guardian, Peregrine, Lavinia, Jailer, Dignitary, Reflector, Swords, Counterspell.

Brago + Strionic Resonator + Sol Ring is infinite blink by copying the combat damage to player trigger of Brago. Another budget combo is Brago + Archaeomancer + Walk the Aeons for infinite turns by repeatedly recurring Aeons with Archaeomancer. Aeons is reprinted in the newest set Time Spiral Remastered thus I expect it will fall in price a week after when the set is released, it's already down to $5 at TCGPlayer.


You can take real advantage of Brago's ability to blink some budget enchantments.

Some other budget cards to consider adding:

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Duplicant is a great removal tool - exiling creatures in mono-blue is strong

Meteor Golem offers another removal tool as needed

Glen Elendra Archmage is a good counter tool, that is good with flicker effects but isn't dependent on them

Merfolk Trickster and Jeering Homunculus are good creature cleanup tools

Man-o'-War and Nevermaker are good all around for bounce

Orvar, the All-Form lets you clone flicker targets from instants

Nephalia Smuggler acts a backup flicker effect

Voracious Greatshark is a decent countermagic effect

Tempest Caller can lock out a dangerous opponent without needing to target specific creatures

Shipwreck Dowser is another return instant effect

Slithermuse is great for card draw, and Watcher for Tomorrow digs 4 cards deep

and finally, Overtaker becomes downright abusive if you stack the EoT triggers - you take creature's permanently
