Accumulated Knowledge Discussion
2 weeks ago
Rancid Earth is not a good main deck card. It is useful versus tron and the rare three-plus colors decks. Kick out void barrier, which does next to nothing in the deck from the sideboard and just put the 4 copies of rancid earth in the sb.
Additionally, Accumulated Knowledge is the best card draw for this type deck. - 1 whispers of the muse, -2 void snare - 1 trespasser's curse for 4 knowledge.
Since I already suggested one curse to go away, I would suggest to remove the other for a copy of counterspell or a removal. A second copy of Devious Cover-Up would be nice just in case.
Finally, having both echoing decay and justice is not very good, since they do the same job and I cannot imagine having to use that effect on turn 2 to justify decay. Sub the decay for another copy of the deck's namesake card. Additionally, you may think to include some copies of Gurmag Angler to finish the game faster.

I'd bump up the Phantasms to a full playset, same with Counterspell.
Something to consider with Mystic Sanctuary is Deprive -- It's an effective combo for pauper, being able to have a counterspell in your hand each turn. With that in mind, you can then cut the Didn't Say Please and get the Chronic Flooding in -- Mills for the exact same amount and occurs more often. I love the curse tech, but running a full set of Flooding might work better, though you could always run both.
Tome Scour seems a good pick as a mill 5 for 1 blue mana, though you could also use Thought Scour for mill plus draw -- I'd be inclined to then cut the Mind Sculpts and get some card draw in -- Set of Opt or Accumulated Knowledge. You can have all the mill in the world, but it means nothing if you're topdecking to do it.
If you wanted to go all-in on Sanctuary, you could side a couple of Tragic Lesson just in case.
Are the automatons just a quick and easy one drop? You might get more from a set of Faerie Seer / Faerie Miscreant / Sage of Epityr or even something like a set of Screeching Sliver or Drowner Initiate
That Rotcrown Ghoul seems nice, but if you need a bit of muscle to back up your draw, check out Makeshift Mauler or Stitched Drake -- They don't mill your opponent, but you have enough of that already for a side-option. Sometimes you need a bit of bulk!

Why not run Accumulated Knowledge over Take Inventory? That instant speed is vital for a deck running countermagic.

-4 Negate +4 Accumulated Knowledge You ideally have 8 real card advantage spells in 4 ninja and 4 accumulated knowledge. You can replace the ninjas with more cantrips to find draw spells but you need some draw.
-4 Opt -4 Thrill of Possibility -1 Chain Lightning -2 Shock +4 Preordain +4 Ponder +3 Brainstorm Uut with bad cantrips in with better ones and shock is just not good enough for pauper not even in burn. Chain lightning isn't BAD but it also isn't as good as Brainstorm
Add snow lands for Skred and play only 2 Snow-Covered Mountain s and the rest in Snow-Covered Island s. My suggestions put you way more into blue. Snow covered lands are 50 cents each but worth it. 4 Ninja of the Deep Hours will run you around $7-$8 but if you have pauper events at your store I would sudgest "investing" in them because they will help you win. IF your store is just casual pauper then you may not want to bother with that.

Please link all cards in your question using double brackets.
201.4. Text that refers to the object it’s on by name means just that particular object and not any other objects with that name, regardless of any name changes caused by game effects.

Strawman fallacies are a form of argument based on a misrepresentation of the opposing argument. Nobody said that Well of Discovery was better than Ancestral Recall . What Akros said was that consistent draw was typically better than burst. You are the one who chose to use a strictly worse version of Staff of Nin , also a bad card, as the poster-child of consistent draw. I have been playing EDH for five years and had never even heard of Well of Discovery until now. It's literal jank.
Now, I don't know why I bothered arguing that anyway, since Recall is banned, and your argument was therefore ridiculous anyway. But I did and it's over now. Onto your next point.
Yes, Phyrexian Arena has nothing on Rhystic Study . But it's in black. Sometimes you're running and you just gotta use draw spells that aren't the best draw spells in the game. Given the available options outside of blue, I'd say Arena fits well enough in those decks.

Remove Treasure Cruise because it's banned and also adding Gitaxian Probe to help trigger Thermo-Alchemist

My playgroup and I are going to do a $10 deckbuilding challenge and I wanted to get some opinions.
I'm not going to make this a stand-alone list, as 1) the pricing scale is not provided by tappedout and 2) I would like to get a more finalized product if I put it on this site at all
The list is as follows:
4x Doom Blade
4x Mana Leak
