Asder Yep agreed, I miss read Cerebral Vortex. Thought it worked like a reverse Fateful Showdown. Thanks for point that out! Replaced it with Tandem Lookout. Kinda iffy on Omniscience though. Might rethink it later.

SandwichMan007 Nah, not for this deck. Great card though.

Poly_raptor Both are great but I was looking for the same thing at instant speed. So thats why Pull from Tomorrow, Blue Sun's Zenith, and Stroke of Genius are in here.

Katscratch Yes, thats a great addition. Any suggestion on cuts?

the__odysseus Also a great addition, but I would like a suggestion for a cut as well.

Jimmy_Chinchila It does need a bit more ramp, ill work on that. What should I cut for Hypersonic Dragon? Not really interested in the planeswalkers though.

SenseiRamen Super great idea, just not sure how often it will go off. One card a turn for 5 is a bit iffy.

Thanks everyone!

why is Cerebral Vortex in there? surely Divination Glimmer of Genius Hieroglyphic Illumination and Think Twice are all better options. maybe its a meta thing and there's a Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain in the playgroup or something but outside of that I'm not sure why it is there.

Rapid Hybridization is a cheaper Pongify and I have onenill give to you. Cerebral Vortex is good, not sure how Elixir of Immortality synergizes unless I’m missing some sort of graveyard shenanigans. Rooftop Storm let’s you play nekusar for free besides commander tax, but I’m not sure how well it fits in the deck. Check out Magus of the Wheel, Dragon Mage andWhirlpool Warrior. Btw I noticed the guy from mox was running Dragon Mage. Library of Leng. That’s all I got for now but I’ll let you know if I find anything else when I take a better look later

Cerebral Vortex could be deadly if you play with Twincast Reverberate Increasing Vengeance and/or Fork

Thanks, luther! I love the suggestions for Cerebral Vortex and Faces of the Past especially and will try to test with them.

I use Altar of the Brood (with Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge as my Psychosis Crawler now, though it was in earlier drafts of the deck.

I'll take a good look at all of these - thanks again!

Cerebral Vortex could be a lot of damage to an opponent or a draw spell for you on opponent's turns

Noetic Scales keeps big nastys off the board, and you need not worry about it's downside with all your draw

Psychosis Crawler could deal a ton of damage for you

Vicious Shadows is a pretty high cmc, but can end games on the spot for you

Walking Atlas is great ramp with a lot of draw in your deck

Faces of the Past gives you pseudo vigilance so you can attack with impunity. It also hoses opposing tribal decks and makes them afraid to attack or else everything of theirs could get tapped.

Cerebral Vortex might be a good addition.
