Battlefield Thaumaturge is great with toshi, as most of your spells target creatures. This way you can chain your removal more easily.

When ~ enters the battlefield, end the game (all players shuffle all cards they own from all zones into their library and shuffle. Then start doing something else.

I think Perilous Research and Ordeal of Thassa belong in a different deck. Maybe one with Auratog and Hatching Plans, I don't know.

Now, something that could be amusing, would be to add black for Profane Command, because with Battlefield Thaumaturge, you just give every creature fear, and X will at least be equal to the number of creatures on the battlefield for free. An evasive army, in addition to the heroic triggers, and whatever you chose for the second mode. It could be amusingly powerful.

Battlefield Thaumaturge can also Icy Blast the entire field for 1 mana.

well maybe you included Battlefield Thaumaturge for a mistake. he doesnt reduce the cost of your counters.the key word "creture" is different from "creature spell". "creature" refers to a permanent, "creature spell" refers to a creature card which is in the stack, but not a permanent already (see Remove Soul). By the way. you should include some kind of removal (Pongify and others), since heavily played cards like Cavern of Souls, Dragonlord Dromoka, Prowling Serpopard, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Surrak Dragonclaw, Vexing Shusher etc..make your deck powerless. and 29 lands are too few =)

Counterspell is not modern legal.

Mana Leak is great but Remand gives me a counter plus it lets me draw a card. Card draw is extremely important in this deck because it gives me more opportunities to land the win-condition combo.

Battlefield Thaumaturge makes my Descent of the Dragons cost 2R if I target 4 creatures.

Dragon Tempest gives those new 4/4 dragons haste but also creates a condition that allows me to burn my opponent for X times X. In other words, if I sacrifice 4 creatures I not only create 4 4/4 Dragons but I also do 4 X 4 = 16 damage to target creature or player (The dragons all hit the board simultaneously). 2R for the ability to burn for 16 and to flood my board with 4/4 dragons with haste is insane.

I really like the interaction between Battlefield Thaumaturge and Icy Blast. Got me, here's an idea: go up to 4 of them, and run more cards that interact well with them.

Things like Rolling Thunder would be insane: for the low low price of , just targeting every creature on the battlefield (even your own, because why not?), you could deal damage divided as you choose, "...and I'll start by choosing 0 damage for all of my stuff". Or, Comet Storm, where dealing X damage to every critter they control becomes free. They would go bonkers with two or more Thaumaturge on the battlefield.

If you go into other colors, you can get some more fun stuff; The most interesting is Profane Command, since you can target every creature on the battlefield, just to make X large, and you can choose something else for the second mode. Then, attack with a likely unblockable army.

Maybe Akroan Crusader to help the pyromancer clutter up the board with tokens?
