Mullac on UW Historic kinda..?

I would always recommend some dual lands, Irrigated Farmland or Glacial Fortress just to make sure you don't get stuck on mana. Some more early-game cards would be good, such as Opt or Censor or Seal Away can really help. Honestly i'm not too sure on how the new Jace fairs, but I'm assuming you play it similar to UW control, with some creatures. Hoped this helped a tad :)

Definitely go up to 2 or 3 Approach at least, and because of the fact that New Perspectives works so well with Cycling I'm assuming at least 15-20 of your cards can be Cycled(using Cast Out, Hieroglyphic Illumination, and the lands such as Irrigated Farmland, etc.)

The thing is, if you are running 4 each of Cast Out, Censor, and Hieroglyphic Illumination, and running 22 lands(taking 2 out for 2 more Approach) you have an almost guaranteed chance to get the lands to get a t6 New Perspectives. Running Curator of Mysteries and Compelling Argument also add more 1-mana Cycle effects, maybe using 1-2 Opt if you have space, Countervailing Winds because it's a decent counterspell, and depending on your colors using Archfiend of Ifnir, Shefet Monitor, and Haze of Pollen(as well as the Amonkhet Cycling duals) can give you an easier path to victory. On the side, Archfiend and Curator are alternate win cons as they are decent sized flyers for the mana.

On the side, I'd run 1-2 copies of Abandoned Sarcophagus as it can let you utilize cards like Cast Out and Haze of Pollen that you cycled earlier in the game to get another handle on the game. Also use that one card that cycles and gives you 2 life, that can help seal the deal against your opponent.

I personally might consider using the M19(if you're playing Standard with this deck, which I assume you are) card that mimics Sphinx's Tutelage. 1, maybe 2 copies add yet another win con that can easily crush your opponent with a New Perspectives on the field.

Wouldn't another interactive spell like Censor be better than Curious Obsession? Or is the damage and little extra card draw a little better?

Arch of Orazca is kind of bad for this deck, you're right. However, I did play test this deck with some of the sideboard cards. I took out 2 Censors and put in 2 Mirror Images. I also had In Bolas's Clutches in and, while I did have it in my hand early on, I was able to draw the game out long enough to use it as well as Lay Claim. To make the deck faster, leaving out In Bolas's Clutches out is probably a better choice.

toastySmorc, by all means, try out whatever variations you can imagine and let me know how it works out.

I think I’ve failed to properly explain this deck, I’ll add a few points here for now. Using bounce effects like this is generally a losing strategy, it only works when you have a critical mass of decent bounce/draw effects. There really aren’t enough here, but I make up for it with all the can-trips. When this deck wins it rarely looks easy, your life total will go dangerously low and the opponent will usually be in a position to win the next turn. That does make for exciting games though :)

It should go without saying that you want to wait till a creature is attacking before you bounce it, presumably opponents will do the same when trying to remove Tempest Djinn so Galestrike can save it. Censor is almost worth more in your graveyard then in your hand, opponents will practically give you a Time Walk over the course of a game playing around it by making less then ideal plays.

This deck can’t hold off opponents indefinitely. There will always come a point where they can play more threats then you can deal with, so You need to find the right time to get a Tempest Djinn into play and attacking before that happens. Then it often becomes a race, but you expect to be able to remove their biggest threats every turn while swinging with your own.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Did some playtesting andCensor's been mvp against threats like history, so I put some in the mainboard.

How about trying out Censor?

Ok first of all, I love Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage decks. There are some changes you could consider to make the deck better.

Take out Resplendent Angel. In a deck like this , the only way you can trigger it is with your copies of Lyra and you don’t run a full playset which you shouldn’t anyway because it is legendary. Second of all, you can’t flash it in with Raff, so it can’t perform tricks that you can do with other creatures.

Censor in the meta today is strictly outclassed by Syncopate unless you’re cycling it but Syncopate isn’t worth putting in either. Consider some Settle the Wreckages to really screw over Aggro decks.

My last suggestion is to splash Green in the deck for a couple of reasons. Since you are running Shalai, you should be able to activate it’s ability. Also, I think Adventurous Impulse or Kamahl's Druidic Vow would work in this deck in green.

Have fun flashing!
