I know you're looking for non-wheel card draw. I don't love cantrips in EDH unless there is a number-of-spells-matters effect in play but they can smooth out a deck a bit. Ponder , Preordain , Portent , Sleight of Hand , Serum Visions , etc. The sweet spot in around 3-5 CMC for me, ideally drawing CMC -1 but there aren't a ton of spells that efficient. I don't love Divination in EDH (2 for 3) but it's the gold-standard in 60-card decks for a quickie hand refill. There are tons of efficient cards like Divination too.

There are a ton of "draw 3, discard 1" for 4 or 5 mana, which are okay. Sift , Trial of Knowledge , and Amass the Components , for example. Many are costed for being commons, which isn't where you wanna be in EDH. There should be plenty of good, efficient cards to draw from though. At the same time, you have a lot of great high-CMC draw, like Consecrated Sphinx and Thought Reflection, so having a few Divination effects might smooth out your draws.

Some suggestions: Concentrate , Windfall , Cathartic Reunion , Plea for Power , Tidings , Nin, the Pain Artist , Finale of Revelation , Mind Spring , Braingeyser , Stroke of Genius , Blue Sun's Zenith , Fact or Fiction , Chart a Course , Ugin's Insight , Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time , Kumena's Awakening , Fevered Visions , Honden of Seeing Winds , Reverse Engineer , Read the Runes , Precognitive Perception , Distant Memories , Arcane Encyclopedia , Endless Atlas , Trail of Evidence , Theft of Dreams , Borrowing 100,000 Arrows , Nezahal, Primal Tide , Kefnet the Mindful , Cavalier of Gales , Combustible Gearhulk , Thassa, God of the Sea , Shared Discovery , Secrets of the Golden City , Vivisection , Weight of Memory , Recurring Insight , Breakthrough , Niv-Mizzet, Parun , Deep Analysis , Gush , Invoke the Firemind , Expansion / Explosion , Chandra, Flamecaller , Dragon Mage , Wild Guess , Tormenting Voice , Arch of Orazca , Runehorn Hellkite , Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , Commune with Lava .

hindugangsta Wow! That's awesome! I'm glad that it worked well for you, I haven't been able to hear from people about results recently so I really appreciate that! I agree, Borrowing 100,000 Arrows is a pretty dang funny card and I bet it works pretty well, especially if you give somebody an army of hippos... I'll definitely consider that, I like it!

warp67 That's a great idea! I'll definitely take a look into running that card. I've been thinking of coming back to this deck and revamping it to adapt to my playgroup's meta, and that seems like a really strong card synergy!

Hey man - I recently copied, added duals, and played this deck at an event at my lgs, and got 1st place! Couldn't believe how fun it was, and like an opponent mentioned "you just sit back and chill and watch the chaos infront of you." Worldpurge saved my bacon more than once. I also replaced Fecundity with Borrowing 100,000 Arrows because the name is funnier and I often play against decks where people swing a lot, and it's a good way to recoup after a battle.

Recently I've been building a deck around the blue/red partner planeswalkers, Will Kenrith and Rowan Kenrith . However, pretty much every single decklist I've seen has placed a stronger focus on Will's cost reduction and spell copying, whereas I want to focus on Rowan's forced attacks and getting value off of tapped creatures.

I've taken some inspiration from Fumiko the Lowblood decklists, but is there anything blue adds to the strategy? I've already included cards like Borrowing 100,000 Arrows , but I was wondering if there were any other interesting cards to include.

I think what this deck wants is some ways to make infinite mana. The one that would be best, in my mind is Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter . You'll want more mana rocks, although I think you want more anyway, but with that combo, you can power out Blightsteel or proliferate out the table with Contagion Engine , Contagion Clasp , or Viral Drake . You'll want the typical Muddle the Mixture to grab the combo, and artifact tutors such as Whir of Invention , Fabricate , and Tezzeret the Seeker can get your Engine and Clasp, as well.

Another classic mono-blue combo is Pili-Pala + Grand Architect . I like that one here, since you want to power up your blue and artifact infect creatures, anyway.

Next is Palinchron . You're already running High Tide and Caged Sun , so that's one option to go infinite. Deadeye Navigator can also combo with Palinchron.

A cheaper alternative is the old Pauper Peregrine Drake combo. You use Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , or Displace to blink Drake, Great Whale , or Palinchron with Mnemonic Wall , Archaeomancer , or Salvager of Secrets , returning the instant each time.

To tie all of these combos together, Merchant Scroll and Mystical Tutor can get the Instants or Whir of Invention .

I think you could use a lot more mana rocks, as well. I would start with Sky Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , and Thought Vessel .

I'm also surprised not to see Corrupted Conscience in here. Love that card.

As for cuts, I'm not really sure what Helm of the Host is doing here. It's not your commander you want more of, it's infect creatures. For that kind of mana, you could just kick Rite of Replication . Not really sure what Telepathy is for. If anything, you don't want the table to know when the infect player is a danger. Borrowing 100,000 Arrows has always been a pet card of mine, but making the kind of mana you are, you want X spells. Blue Sun's Zenith , Open Into Wonder , and Pull from Tomorrow are you friends.

Since you're limited on infect creatures, you might want normal clone effects. Phantasmal Image is cheap. Gigantoplasm can copy an infect creature and one-shot people, Quicksilver Gargantuan to a lesser extent. Phyrexian Metamorph is flexible. Vizier of Many Faces has recursion. Stunt Double can surprise the table by speeding up the clock just before your turn. Fated Infatuation comes with card selection. Mirror of the Forebears survives board wipes. Cackling Counterpart , Stolen Identity , Quasiduplicate , and Saheeli's Artistry can all copy creatures multiple times.

I would say, "generally, no way." You have far more control over Distant Melodys conditional effect than you do the other.

That being said, maybe your Salt Mine Prison Escape deck, or one like it, could mainboard Borrowing 100,000 Arrows?
