Post subject:  [EDH] Talrand Turbo Tokens

A budget-ish deck designed to take maximum advantage of Talrand's ability to make tokens off of spells. Priced around 70 dollars.
The deck runs a massive amount of counterspells, and is able to protect Talrand, Sky Summoner while he amasses drakes and prevent enemy threats, supported by Baral, Chief of Complianceand Guile. The deck also runs an ungodly amount of cheap card draw spells to ensure that Talrand never runs out of drakes to deploy, and to support the land-light manabase. The most powerful card in the deck is Eldrazi Monument, protecting our commander and drakes from removal and boardwipes, ensuring that the bodies of our commader and utility creatures and ground tokens aren't useless, bolstering our flimsy defense with indestructible blockers, and making our attack hit much harder. The drawback isn't too significant. Fabricate's primary uses is searching for Eldrazi Monument or Sol Ring.
The sideboard contains an an upgrade package towards a 50-dollar version. Cards to cut for downgrade: Eldrazi Monument, Fabricate, Chasm Skulker, Primal Amulet.

Thwart and Misdirection offer more "free" protection

Jace's Sanctum and Arcane Melee for more turbo spell action

Flash of Insight, Mass Diminish, and Quiet Speculation might be worth thinking about
