Quote from rogerandover »Quote from ChaosNomad »Sorry about taking so long to respond. I've unfortunately have not had too many times to test the deck out as I'm currently working night shift, and lack a Commander playgroup currently.
Mindshrieker and Hands of Binding are cards I've considered in the deck, but I really want to have more testing before I'm cutting more cards.
Surrakar is weird. It's an effect that is something I want, but I'm also rather spell-lite of a deck. If I was playing more Instant/Sorcery spells I might consider it. In fact, Battlebond is releasing a card that would go well in a more Instant/Sorcery spell based version of the deck in Spellseeker.
Morphling and Aetherling could easily see play in this deck, especially if you're playing with a more slow meta. As is, the people I play against most frequently, for what little that means currently, tend to play much more speedy control oriented decks, and I would prefer not having too many high costing cards.
No problem at all!
Since me asking, I have actually played a bunch of games on cockatrice, and overall I have been fairly empressed by the deck. It's been fun to play, and I've been able to win some rather surprising wins.
More then one have been called the deck mono-blue Edric, which isn't entirely false A coulpe of times, I was able to chain Time Warp's ftw. When you are able to draw 4-5 cards pr turn, it's not unlikely to dig into Snapcaster Mage or another Time Walk.
Morphling has been... ok. Think I've drawn him twice, but he has been dealing some damage, which most of the creatures can't. Then dying to a wrath So it's with mixed feeling, that I see the new Brightling is kinda a better Morphling. In the same vein, Mindshrieker have actually been pretty ok. It has been dealing damage, staying behind as a blocker acting as rattlesnake.
I've only drawn Teferi's Veil once, where my opponent asked what it was good for. I tell him it's protects against wraths, he then proceeds to tutor for Anguished Unmaking to exile it, the Supreme Verdict, lol.
I'm definitely going to try out Spellseeker. I do run a fair amount of instant/socerry (and also Runechanter's Pike), so a weenie to work as a toolbox looks great.
Hope you get to play more soon, so we can evolve this cool deck-type!
Just as a heads up, for more toolboxy cards take a gander at Vedalken Aethermage. Being able to fetch some of our key cards, like Snapcaster and Master of Waves as well as being weenie in itself might be worth consideration for your build.
