just becausen you have the other two im going to recomend Aberrant Researcher  Flip

BlazingAbsol on Instant Death Combo!

Yeah, Shielded Aether Thief is kinda bad. I just threw it out there as a way to get more energy at instant speed. I also didn't think of the synergy of putting instants and sorceries in the grave with Aberrant Researcher  Flip to power up Rise from the Tides.

Also, if you do decide to run Dyanvolt Tower and/or Confiscation Coup, I think you probably want a full 4 copies of Glimmer of Genius. It's a good card on its own, and it gives you more energy.

Good luck with this deck!

BlazingAbsol Thank you for the suggestions! I am always a little awkward when it comes to over or under doing it when it comes to strategy. I should leave the Dispels, the Turn Asides, and the Negates in the side. I like running Summary Dismissal in the case of just downright annoying abilities, and it comes out as 3 mana with Baral, Chief of Compliance out.

Dynavolt Tower and Confiscation Coup are definitely going in. I forgot about them completely. I feel like Shielded Aether Thief is actually a little weak outside of limited, and doesn't really add enough to warrant putting it in. I could run it in the side, in case of heavy aggro.

Aberrant Researcher  Flip has been doing decently. There are the times when I top deck creatures with it and then draw into useless instants/sorceries.

No Anticipate? Also, Turn Aside and Dispel (and to a certain extent Negate and Summary Dismissal) seem quite narrow for a mainboard.

If you want to go more in on the instants & sorceries matter theme, Dynavolt Tower could also be useful. It would also give you more use for the energy you get from Glimmer of Genius. If you want to go that route, you could also throw in Shielded Aether Thief and, for the extra spice, Confiscation Coup.

How has Aberrant Researcher  Flip worked out for you? It seems a bit underpowered.

The first one to come to mind is

Delver of Secrets  Flip --> Aberrant Researcher  Flip --> Docent of Perfection  Flip

At least, I'm pretty sure that's the same dude.

A few cards that came to mind: Rune Snag, Runechanter's Pike, Collective Defiance, Contingency Plan, Rise from the Tides, Aberrant Researcher  Flip

I love the deck; +1 and good luck.

Oh yes! Way cheaper than the probe as well! This deck is super cheap considering I already have most of the cards including the Jace which is the most expensive.

You sadden me. :( I love Aberrant Researcher  Flip! I see what you are saying though, I really don't like having to put cards in the grave to flip him. Plus I have plenty of power in the other creatures. Thanks again!

And oh you are so Punny!

Here's the Vamps, just don't Peek under Drana's skirt, she can be very violent!

Dude I have to say, you just made my day. I had completely forgotten that Peek was reprinted!! Woohoo! Absolutly run it.

Aberrant Researcher  Flip is kind of a clunky card, so I would replace it with the Delver for early game pressure.

I haven't gone over your vampires, I'll be sure to give it a Peek! (Pun SO intended)
