Delver of Secrets  Flip is only in there to allow a turn 2 Wizard's Retort. I like Cursecatcher though as it's ability is also a turn 1/2 counter spell. For the time being I'm going full Wizards Tribal so Thing in the Ice  Flip doesn't fit the bill. But I see how it could be beneficial.

I think you should pick to either go with Delve or with Delver of Secrets  Flip, all in. As it stands I'm not sure you have enough spells to consistently flip a delver or to load the graveyard for delve creatures. Both ways would feed well off Opt; and Delve would also like Street Wraith and more Thought Scours. Delver might work better in a control shell, maybe with help from Nimble Obstructionist, Snapcaster Mage and the new Wizard's Retort.

+3 You draw two cards and gain 2 life.

-1 Until your next turn, creatures you control get +0/+3, lifelink and vigilance.

-3 Exile up to two target nonland permanents.

-9 Search your library for any number of cards with different names and reveal them. You may put any number of permanents from among them into play. Put the rest into your hand.



Delver of Secrets  Flip is a pretty cool card, so is Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, but I think that are the only two two-sided cards that you can cast before turn three that made a real impact on constructed. So the Mardu colours are probably pretty sad right now. Design a low-cost flip-creature that isn't blue or green!

Learn2Tech, I really like those ideas. I've thought of pursing a wizard sub-theme for a bit now, but I fear it would detract too much from the delver strategy. Delver of Secrets  Flip already wants a low density of non instant/sorceries, and the only other wizard in the deck is ol' snaps. Both Wizard's Lightning and Wizard's Retort would be much much better if delver remained a wizard when transformed. I like your list! I'd recommend Final Iteration  Flip if you're looking for a more wizard-spell-slinging theme

With thing you really want to play a more control then tempo so i would switch to 2 Remand 3 Mana Leak

Also you really need Delver of Secrets  Flip so i would pull the Faithless Looting and 1 land for 3. (you dont want card disadvantage and with 11 cantrips 19 land is plenty)

Good luck with the build! I love my budget UR delver

Thank you for the suggestions, Saljen.

Young Pyromancer is obviously a good card, but I don't like how it misses out on goblin synergies. I also feel like the Delver of Secrets  Flip/Guttersnipe/Young Pyromancer combo has been done many times before, and I want to do something a little different. He is sufficiently angsty though... Firebrand Archer is interesting, but it seems like a weak, non-goblin Guttersnipe for a mana more than I would really want.

Skirk Prospector is useful because it turns our goblins into fuel, which makes it possible to burn out opponents a turn or two earlier than otherwise. It allows the casting of unexpected Lightning Bolts and Goblin Grenades, for example.

Also, this isn't delver. This uses the delve mechanic, but not Delver of Secrets  Flip

Chiberia: I took Delver of Secrets  Flip out in an eary build because I was still tweaking the creatures/spells ratio, and you're right, it definitely needs to be re-added.

As for Unwind, if I had any Negates, I would replace them in a heartbeat. I don't want to replace Exclude because I'd like to keep all the good/relevant spells against creature-heavy decks be mainboard. I would love to add some Unwinds to the sideboard, I'm just not sure what to take out to make room.
