If I should go ahead and actually build it, I will share my experience with the deck. I thought I might have overlooked some synergy with Faerie Trickery.

Concerning Counterflux: It is indeed pretty color intensive in a deck that uses red as a splash color only. Playing mono blue counters might be the better choice in terms of consistency as you have pointed out. Since my meta is quite control heavy, I might give it a shot nonetheless.

Please do build it and play it and share your tweaks and changes!

Regarding Counterflux, it's hard to say. I've tweaked this to be a largely wUBrG, Or Sultai with splashes of White and Red. So adding a red counterspell seems bad. Does you meta call for what Counterflux adds?

Gift of Immortality is currently around 5-10 cents on Cardmarket. I really love this build and am considering building it myself.

What is your opinion on replacing Faerie Trickery with something like Counterflux?

All cut. Not sure if you prefer Liliana Vess over Vraska, Golgari Queen, but since you hated the latter, I'm pretty sure Tamiyo, the Moon Sage's -8 can compliment this, unless only stuff like Meekstone/Ensnaring Bridge can help for stuff Power <3. Ideas? Or should I just put back in either Demonic Tutor, or Counterflux? (Thran Temporal Gateway is a better replacement than Sunbird's Invocation anyway it seems...)

Any thoughts, DrkNinja?

Oh you've got the Counterflux, missed that. Vandalblast then.

Recommendations:

-1 Wizard's Retort Not enough creatures for it to have a prayer of being a Counterspell.

-1 The Mirari Conjecture Feels just too slow, and I never seem to mind discarding it.

-1 Swiftfoot Boots Locust God is already inherently resilient, and you're not dependent on other creatures.

-1 Apex of Power I find it amusing, but the cost plus it not being a draw puts it on the chopping block.

+1 Counterflux At worst, a slightly more restrictive Cancel that can't be countered.

+1 Mindmoil Free wheel stapled onto every spell for a deck that always wants to draw more cards.

+1 Ashnod's Altar Turns the tokens into super-Lotus Petals. Goes infinite with Skullclamp+The Locust God.

+1 Swarm Intelligence What's better than casting a draw-2? Getting a second draw-2.

Darkshadow327 sorry about your comment being cut, but why cut Dack Fayden, I mean, he us a little off-flavor, but he is low-mana card selection, a Faithless Looting every turn, and can steal Gilded Lotuses and Caged Suns till there is no tommorrow, with a decent ultimate to boot. I mean, he sees legacy and cEDH play because if you steal a turn one Sol Ring or late gate bomb artifact, he will take it, and otherwise is just ticking up, digging though your deck, and getting closer to a late game ultimate, all for 3 mana, considered better than Jace, the Mind Sculptor in many decks, though obviously generally worse than JTMS overall, and is just a good walker.

I'd agree cutting Chromatic Lantern should be cut, it is okay at fixing, but this deck shouldn't need more fixing than it has, except for Cruel Ultimatum, the hardest god-dang thing to cast.

I'd also argue for Flusterstorm, Counterflux or Countersquall, I mean it is 1 mana, and still stops most storm decks. Mindbreak Trap is also fun!

I'm flattered that you want to include me, I will admit that I was super confused when I saw that my name was mentioned here. Deck looks good so far, I totally understand the cut problem though.

I feel like Chromatic Lantern could be cut, unless you want it for a mana rock 3-color decks don't usually have trouble with color fixing (unless you have super bad luck, AKA: me). The mana base looks good, and I don't think the temples should be cut, it's always nice to have that Scry.

I feel like Dack Fayden could maybe go.

Switching Countersquall for Counterflux seems like a good idea (you're going to combo out/storm with all these spells? OVERLOAD!!! I think not!).

Honestly I'm not sure how much help I can give, I suck at making cuts to my own decks (too many good cards, not enough space
