Maybe i'll put Curious Obsession in the sb against control. I don't think Shapers' Sanctuary is helpful as sb in this deck. HD

I do play Curious Obsession in the arena and in the paper. Yes the pros are good, but the cons.... Man.... You don't want to your horse unable to block a Goblin Chainwhirler. I tried Cartouche of Knowledge as well but i want the 1 drop better. I'll give it a try. Maybe try combining different auras for 7 slots.

I think you have a good start here, though I would probably jam the 2nd Geist over the Kira. Remand could also be good, though something like Curious Obsession has also piqued my interest of late. Spirits don't have much in the way of card draw, and protecting the creature you enchant should be pretty easy.

The thing with Curious Obsession is to play it only when you can start to attack safely. Even if later in the game is destroyed, if it got you draw at least 2 cards, or even 1, it's been worthy for 1 mana. Before the rotation, Sixth Sense is an alternative without the downside, although it doesn´t pump the creature. Regarding Mirror Image, yes you're right, the problem is that it's a 3 mana creature that it's not worth to play on turn 3 or 2 with Llanowar Elves. That's why I don't play 4 copies of it, just 3 and I´m thinking to reduce to 2. I play it also because I don't have a full set of Steel Leaf Champion

I honestly like Curious Obsession. But its a double edged sword. Its good when you are in the offense but ia very bad when you are defending. I will give Mirror Image a try. I'm just wondering tho,.. Isn't it too board state reliant? I mean, of you got nothing and you are in the pinch of dying and you top decked it, you automatically lose the game. Given the fact that it is a creature.

I´m trying a version of this deck in MTGA. A card that can be useful if you need more board presence is Mirror Image, is basically extra copies of your hexproof creatures (if they are already on play, of course). I run a copy of Hadana's Climb  Flip as well and I´m trying Curious Obsession for card draw.

I think you don't have enough way to refill your hand. Without Curious Obsession, game will be hard. Maybe bring in Pull from Tomorrow ? At turn 4-5 when your hand is low on cards, it could help a lot.

Also, I find Admiral's Order weird as a counterspell in your sideboard. What are you trying to protect yourself from with thise ? Same goes for ceremonious rejection

Else, deck seems cool but I'm afraid it will lack some points of damage to finish the game.

What is the benefit of having Curious Obsession in this deck? As soon as it gets equipped, you lose the benefit of Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive. Card draw is good and all, but your creatures will be blockable with this on either one.

I would also suggest Winds of Rebuke for tempo, as it is great with Fraying Sanity out. Also, Voltaic Servant might be a good card post rotation, as it can untap itself after combat or untap Millstone on your turn, allowing you to use it again on their turn.
