I can tell that you don't really care about consistency. And i'm perfectly cool with that. not everyone needs 4 copies of everything in their deck, right? singletons give you some variety in games. but you should think about cutting it down to 60 cards. I would suggest taking out: Death Pit Offering Buy, Binding Grasp Buy, Quash Buy, Memnarch Buy, both Augur of Skulls Buy, and both Keeper of the Dead Buy. Death Pit Offering Buy is good, but it's really hard to reecover from. Memnarch Buy is really pricey, and you could probably find better things to do with your mana. You have better counterspells than Quash Buy, and i just dont feel Augur of Skulls Buy and Keeper of the Dead Buy are the best things you could have in here. And if you want my {2} cents on what cards to get more of if you ever decide to do a little consolidating, I would say get more Linessa, Zephyr Mage Buy, oversold cemetary, Venser, Shaper Savant Buy, Last Word Buy, Diabolic Tutor Buy, and Eradicate Buy. But thats just my suggestion, so you can run with it however you wish, but hopefully they will help you. And can you always get Cabal Patriarch Buy, Azami, Lady of Scrolls Buy, and Grave Pact Buy out early and easily? what i mean is, how fast can you get 3 colored mana? I'm sure that if you're just playing casual, it's no big deal, but it seems to me that you might have some trouble with no mana-fixing in the deck. so maybe think about something like Dimir Signet Buy or Coalition Relic Buy if you ever want some color-fixing.

and could u please rate a deck of mine. i would appreciate it. thanks

Nice deck, well layed out.

My suggestion, if your going to use Cancel, then put in a Boseiju, Who Shelters All Buy.

Also take out 2Vedalken AEthermage Buy and add 2Azorius Guildmage Buy, to slow down your opponent.(Recommendation)

-Please Comment My Deck. Thanks.-

thanks for the rate
nice deck. i dont think any of the vedalken aethermages are really necessary unless you play against a whole lot of sliver decks. if you can get your hands on them, replace them with more teferi's and circu's. also, i think you could benefit from some creature destruction like terror, as well as the ever-useful dark ritual to get out wizards faster

I have the Vedalken Athermages so I can search for wizards I need, not because of its come into play affect, although its a nice addition cause a couple of my friends run sliver decks.

Thanks for the rating.
One thing i noticed is you have a few cards in this deck that allow you to draw cards, my friend has a deck with Archivist Buy and Freed from the Real Buy. It's a nice little combo that lets you draw a card for an island. Just a suggestion.

Before we begin thank you for your rate, if the deck I posted wasn't a standard one, believe me I would have pyromancer's AND grenades to go in the deck. Now on to to your deck. The first thing that comes to mind when I look at this deck is - Where is Arcanis the Omnipotent Buy/Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir Buy? Two of the best wizards I've seen...missing. Other than that I would recommend you look into Take Possession Buy or Enslave Buy since they both have amazing side abilities that make them awesome. Also I have to ask...why is szadek in a wizard tribal deck? He is amazing. but he seems out of place in this deck, I would take him out for one of the others. I hope this helped you out

Not bad, but I would change cancel for counterspell! Secondly, change diabolic tutor for Liliana Vess. The mana cost is thesame, you can also search your library for a card and you get to do it more than once! In your deck, where few cards are put in more than once, library search will even be more important.

Thanks for rating my deck! I'm not good with blue but i leave a suggestion of why not trying Liliana Vess? It's good for control.

Thanks for the rate. This looks pretty solid, and I agree with Death Incarnate about the inconsistance. It's more surprising that way. Should keep your opponent under control whily your wizards beat the hell outta them, Gandalf-style.

I'd recommend more 4 of's to make the deck more consistent. It looks like an interesting idea in concept, but seems a little disjointed. Most of your 1 ofs you won't see consistently (except for any Wizards because of your Aethermages), such as your Last Word and Reminisce. You might want to take those out for cards that you find more helpful to your overall game.

I'd also recommend some more effective cards, such as the good ole Counterspell Buy, Terror Buy, or Dark Banishing Buy, etc. Also, some ideas for you would be either Patron Wizard Buy if you're running a more control game, or Voidmage Prodigy Buy if you want to be more aggressive. In either case, Martyr of Frost Buy would probably be helpful in a lot of instances.

I like to see blue decks that have purpose, looks pretty good...Why Night's Whisper Buy? It seems silly to run a penalized, sorcery, draw spell in a blue deck, check out Telling Time Buy instead, I use it in my blue black, and it speeds the deck up quite a bit.http://essentialmagic.com/Decks/View.asp?ID=554232

good deck. it seems like it locks them down almost completely while you mill their deck. There one card that you should add i dont remember the name but it removes the top half of target players library from the game.
