Flicker or blink effects can work very well to defend Bruna too. eg:

Aquamoeba can help you discard all your auras so you can equip them for free. So can Cephalid Inkshrouder.

If you want to discard and gain something in return (you greedy git) you have things like these:

These are but mere suggestions for stuff you may want to consider!

desmondwrite interesting question, I've struggled hard to find a way to draw efficiently. It needs a lot of works and that might be its big weakness. But the low CMC of the curve helps me get through the draw issuesé

Here's my draw options so far: Curator's Ward, Dire Undercurrents, Kindred Discovery, Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, Baleful Strix, Sai, Master Thopterist, Skullclamp, Smuggler's Copter, Sword of Fire and Ice, Nihil Spellbomb, The Immortal Sun and Treasure Map  Flip. Most of them are gamechangers (sword, dire undercurrent, kindred, etc.)

It is not premium draw options as we know blue can provide but it sinergize pretty well with my faerie/enchantement/artifact tribal as it brings lot of value. The deck overall is a very good performer on multiplayer table and is playable 1vs1.

Thanks Karolina! Go for it, it's really fun. Nobody expects voltron zedruu. And yeah it could probably use a few counterspells. I actually need to update my list, i've since added some protective stuff like Curator's Ward and Champion's Helm

Without Possibility Storm the deck does okay, although not great and it's obviously better with it. The nice thing is Possibility Storm helps protect itself against things like enchantment removal, since they have to hit it from their library to actually cast it. If they are able to destroy or counter Possibility Storm, the deck has Crystal Chimes and Trading Post to get it back although that certainly is not ideal.

As for cards like Nevermore and Meddling Mage, I actually have never come up against them. Meddling Mage could be dealt with using one of the wraths or removal spells, but the only answer for something like Nevermore is pretty much Spine of Ish Sah. I have considered adding Unstable Obelisk for another, similar option, but both are pretty expensive which can be frustrating.

Something like Curator's Ward might be worthwhile. Like I said, I mostly rely on Possibility Storm's natural ability to dodge removal but I have not played against a deck with lots of dedicated enchantment removal that I can think of. Keeping Possibility Storm alive is definitely something the deck wants to do.

As for Mirage Mirror, I remember looking it over when it was first spoiled but I haven't thought about it in the deck too much. It definitely could fit as a utility artifact, though, and I'm sure it could combo with something in the deck.

Seems pretty narrow. I mean, what if someone blows out your Possibility Storm or ends up casting Nevermore, Meddling Mage or something else that locks you out of Possibility Storm?

You could throw in something like Curator's Ward to protect your Possibility Storm or even an artifact or legendary since you can draw cards off enchantee's LTB.

Have you considered Mirage Mirror?
