I'm working on this deck for a monthly 1v1 tourney at a local store. My card choices are heavily influenced by what I play for multiplayer. The idea of the deck is your normal draw-go style permission deck. Most of the cards either counter a spell, have flash, draw cards, or some sort of removal. Here is the list:

General:
Vendilion Clique

Lands: 38
Scrying Sheets
Wasteland
Tectonic Edge
Riptide Laboratory
Dust Bowl
Cephalid Coliseum
Cavern of Souls
Ghost Quarter
Tolaria West
29x Snow-Covered Island

Planeswalker: 1
Jace, the Mind Sculptor

Artifact: 3
Isochron Scepter
Sword of Feast and Famine
Sword of Fire and Ice

Enchantment: 1
Counterbalance

Creatures: 10
Voidmage Husher
Venser, Shaper Savant
Glen Elendra Archmage
Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir
Phantasmal Image
Vedalken Aethermage
Snapcaster Mage
Deadeye Navigator
Archaeomancer
Phyrexian Metamorph

Draw: 10
Brainstorm
Preordain
Ponder
Peek
Gitaxian Probe
Ancestral Vision
Impulse
Fact or Fiction
Flash of Insight
Jace's Ingenuity

Counters: 28
Dissipate
Dismiss
Complicate
Logic Knot
Spell Pierce
Pact of Negation
Rewind
Mental Misstep
Forbid
Mana Leak
Force Spike
Memory Lapse
Cryptic Command
Deprive
Spell Crumple
Muddle the Mixture
Disrupt
Hinder
Counterspell
Negate
Spell Contortion
Force of Will
Remand
Trickbind
Exclude
Remove Soul
Delay
Daze

Other: 10
Merchant Scroll
Mystical Tutor
Capsize
Cyclonic Rift
Into the Roil
Boomerang
Bribery
Tunnel Vision
Treachery
Misdirection

I'm currently 2 cards over, not bad. Suggestions and Comments will be appreciated.

Trinket Mage, Top, and Sol Ring... seems good to have Top with counterbalance, plus Sol Ring is Sol Ring.


Top is banned for tournament use and so is Sol Ring.
Most of the good mana ramp is banned, the thinking is, if someone plays a Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt on turn 1, they have gotten such a huge advantage in speed there going to win, same with Mana Drain. Counterbalance with the low CC of the deck matches most competitive decks in the 1v1 format, so, not a good soft lock, but more of a lucksac lock.

Well glad you told us the good ramp was banned before you said anything.


Anyone playing 1v1 Commander competitively and not using the duelcommander banlist (aka french banlist) is a chump.

I agree though, could use a few more dudes. Vedalken Aethermage does not impress me, unless you anticipate slivers in the meta. I'm a big fan of mulldrifter, and riftwing cloudskate, man-o-war etc are very good against decks that have a strong, aggressive start.

Vedalken Shackles is needed, is 2 swords really good in a 100 card deck with 10 creatures, repeal seems better than boomerang to me, is a big threat really going to stick vs this deck?

Soothsaying can be used to abuse counterbalance and is a blue enchantment at the cost of 1...it is a decent card in commander. I would suggest Blue sun's zenith a because of its draw power and possibility to deck your opponent as well...stroke of genius works too but Blue sun seems better since it shuffles back into your library or you could play both Very Happy

I'd cut Counterbalance and Deadeye Navigator.

Deadeye is one of my pet cards I would like to keep. Best case scenario I start flickering venser for win, worst case, my general and either filter through my deck or get rid of threats in opponents hand.

If you are using the banlist with Sol Ring banned, isn't Clique as commander banned as well? Either way, this deck is awfully tame -- cards like Deadeye Navigator and Muddle the Mixture just aren't powerful enough or flexible enough for eternal formats.
