Aphetto Alchemist Discussion
2 days ago
the only problem with Vizier of Tumbling Sands is that he cant untap himself like Aphetto Alchemist can. still very useful though. my favorite way to win with my deck is to have Reckless Fireweaver & Panharmonicon out, then Rite of Replication(kicked) the Reckless Fireweaver then every artifact i play each opponent is losing 12 life. Its super fun if you can pull it off.

shadowmage very nice build. have you ever thought of using Illusionist's Bracers & Aphetto Alchemist for infinite artifact untaps? It's kinda like having another Paradox Engine except you dont have to play a spell. It can actually be used many ways. even with creatures or artifacts that ping or mill.

Maybe try dropping diplomatic immunity for instant speed protection, as immunity prevents your win con. Turn Aside is my favorite competitor.
You can play infect creatures for the same kind of effect as the serpent and Freed from the Real for another Ink.

Consider adding some of these: Dissipate, Capsize, Into the Roil/Expel from Orazca, Wizard's Retort, Swan Song, Rite of Replication, Unwind, Myriad Landscape, Reliquary Tower, Thought Vessel, Disallow, Spell Swindle, Merchant Scroll, Muddle the Mixture, Aphetto Alchemist, Siren Stormtamer, and Gilded Lotus.
Here are the changes I would start with however, swap Syncopate for Disallow. Then Spell Pierce for Swan Song, Disappearing Act for Wizard's Retort, Divination for Dig Through Time or Preordain, swap Silent Departure for Into the Roil, Capsize, or Expel from Orazca, swap Dispel for Muddle the Mixture, Aether Spellbomb for Fellwar Stone or Sky Diamond (More mana rocks will help for what i'm suggesting below if you want to consider that route), and Tamiyo's Journal for Gilded Lotus (As you just don't have enough ways to make clue tokens, and it's kind of slow anyways. Instead focus on making lots of mana, tapping and untapping your creatures to draw lots of cards).
There is also of course Mind Over Matter and I have one myself, it is a very powerful card that pairs well with things like Temple Bell, Psychosis Crawler, even Azami, Lady of Scrolls. But admittedly it is quite expensive of course, I just thought I would make you aware of this card nonetheless. You listed the deck as budget, but I wasn't sure to what degree this means, whether that's no card over $10-$15 or what.
Dramatic Reversal is another one I highly recommend, it could be sweet if you pair this with an Isochron Scepter, and that's why cards like Long-Term Plans, Merchant Scroll, Mystical Tutor, Fabricate you could more often have these. Then you can either make a ton of mana, or perhaps even infinite if you have a bunch of mana rocks out and or Paradox Engine. You could win then by casting stuff like Blue Sun's Zenith, Stroke of Genius, among other things.
Depending on how much your willing to spend other ideas include: Rhystic Study, Mind Over Matter as previously mentioned, Patron Wizard, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip, Laboratory Maniac maybe could be good here, Maze of Ith, Riptide Laboratory, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Tolaria West, Path of Ancestry, and Sensei's Divining Top (Just ordered one of these myself in fact last night, it is such a useful card that can be used in a lot of decks imo).
I know I suggested more to include than what I suggested to in turn remove, I can help more with this if you haven't solved it all yourself already once i'm done with exams in 3 days. In the meanwhile I recommend you visit the website edhrec.com wihich might be a lot of help to you if your not already familiar with it!

Maybe you'd also like Trophy Mage.
I don't think you should run Aphetto Alchemist. He really just wants to combo with Illusionist's Bracers, Mind Over Matter, and things that tap, like Prodigal Sorcerer, Codex Shredder, and Temple Bell

Infinite Reflection doesn't go infinite with any of the indicated cards as far as I can tell (doesn't affect tokens).

Kiora's Follower actually is a decent idea since it untaps your commander for double the doubled counters. Along those lines, Thousand-Year Elixir, Aphetto Alchemist, and Fatestitcher could be pretty good for your commander and for ramp
