So i have Artisan of Forms and Quiet Contemplation on the battlefield and my enemy has a [[card:birds of paradise] and another creature. I cast Aqueous Form on Artisan and both artisan of forms' and Quiet contemplation's triggers go on the stack. If i resolve first artisan of forms' one making it a copy of birds of paradise, can i tap it for the 1 generic mana i need for the Quiet Contemplation trigger?

That's why I'm here. The deck seems pretty fun, I'm curious to see where you take it.

O, & Artisan of Forms is a card, BTW

I recommend more lands 36 is normally a good number with about 8-10 accelerator cards like the afore mentioned elves, cards like Kiora's Follower also count towards this.

since you are playing 2 colors I recommend exciting lands like Alchemist's Refuge and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx also beware of Botanical Sanctum as on t4 its a guildgate which isn't terrible but there are far better lands, especially when you aren't pressured to play heaps of dual lands.

since you are playing Infinite Reflection I recommend Biovisionary

I would recomend removing the following:

Jace's Phantasm: whis deck dosen't seem particular graveyard heavy thus i think this will just be dissapointing.

Nissa, Nature's Artisan: too expensive and dosent do enough.

Wall of Frost: I hate walls

Artisan of Forms: I counted 6 targeting spells this wont be consistent enough

Pulse of Murasa: use Skullwinder and Eternal Witness

sorry if this appears twice i forgot the double brackets

@unos: yeah i tried Artisan of Forms in the very first run of this deck, but as you pointed out, shes really not that good; not unless we put far more target cards in the deck, and she's not the card we're trying to tailor the deck to, so she's not worth it. now playing off the wizard typing is not a strategy i ever considered, so im quite interested in play testing Sigil Tracer, i think she offers a flexibility to the deck that's been pretty lacking in earlier concepts. not only does she allow us to copy the token spells for cheep, but she could also work off of the populate effect you bought up; and sense the deck comes up short as far as answers go, i think having a fog ability like Druid's Deliverance is a really great idea. now having said that, the less we take away from the decks main focus the better, Mr.B's win condition is rather linear, the longer we let our opponent set up, the worse off we're gong to be; so even though the Protean Hulk is obviously a late drop, he does offer to be the game changing bomb of the deck, because honestly if we don't have 1 or 2 B's out by turn 7 we're in some serious trouble. i feel like the wizard strat has more to offer over all, but could really muddle up the deck if done poorly, but both are really good suggestions, and are defiantly pointing in the right direction. that being said i don't want to over look the card grabs you brought to the table, some of these are ones i've never heard of before, and i'm especially interested in Retraced Image. i think these are all really sold effects, and they play nicely with the rest of the deck. i'm so glad you took an interest in this deck, it's a lot of fun, and i believe it has a lot to offer to combo players, it just needs some people to take the time and work all the bugs out.

Getting to win with mr. Biovisionary is hard. Fated Infatuation and Dance of Many put down tokens to copy your mr. B. A strategy could be to follow-up with some green spells that populate. One such card in GU is Druid's Deliverance.

Twincast -- it has potential as it could double Fated Infatuation and Green Sun's Zenith (the X part of a cost is copied so this works), but spending UU more isn't a thrilling perspective: a double Zenith targeting a biovisionary will cost 3GUU, and a doubled fated infatuation would cost a horrible UUUUU.

Clones that cost less than 4 that i didn't see here - Artisan of Forms and Shapesharer. Let's be straight they aren't really good. But they could do the trick maybe you could test a version of the deck with them inside and see how they roll.

Spy Kit is new to me but it's a neat little card for the purposes of the deck.
