Not much else but Brain in a Jar - bad here. Sunset Pyramid might not be too bad but slow. Witches' Eye - slow and buts a creature out of attacking... Naya isn't much for mass top deck manipulation.

Awesome! I'm glad to hear it played well. I'll send you a link to this deck. I'm kind of at a standstill with it though and am having issues tweaking it to my liking. I added Brain in a Jar to get a few free plays.Brain Damage [HOU]

I realize it's not central to the deck as a 1-of, but As Foretold would be a significant upgrade over Brain in a Jar

Why Brain in a Jar but no As Foretold? Just b/c it's brown?

Turn Aside is still in standard for a 1 drop to cast off Brain in a Jar a single main deck Rise from the Tides seems like it would be good.

Try running Brain in a Jar

You can use Brain in a Jar to cast Dispel in response to the possible Abrade.It can be extremely useful in decks of cheap instants/sorceries

Bounty of the Luxa is a great Idea! I was trying to think of good ways to add a little bit of ramp and that would be great, thanks! I'll have to try some Unsubstantiate but I'm a big fan of failure's second half as well. Brain in a Jar is a cool card, but As Foretold will let me cast on my turn as well as theirs. Thanks for those suggestions!

I dig the janky idea of the deck. xD Brain in a Jar could be another way to cast a free Approach but it takes a bit more work than the As Foretold. There's also Bounty of the Luxa as an engine card for building up to the finish. And don't forget about Unsubstantiate as a way to stay alive longer and combo in place of Failure
