Depths of Desire Discussion

lagotripha Thanks for your comment, I have considered Mass Polymorph and Proteus Staff, proteus staff being the better of the 2. Mass polymorph is unnessecary and expensive so I would want to play this as I usually only have 1 hit in my deck and proteus staff is very good but costs extra mana (3 to cast, 3 to polymorph), with the staff also being an artifact, it would stop me playing Indomitable Creativity as this will reveal an artifact or creature and could hit the staff and not emrakul instead.
As for Hordeling Outburst, I wasnt the biggest fan of a sorcery speed 3 mana spell, however you can steal games by beating down with these 1/1's and for the value you cant find anything better as this deck prefers lots of targets for our polymorph's, and I use 2x Spawning Breath for the instant speed token creator if required.
The other options you mentioned all have a downside, Warping Wail could be uncastable if i dont hit 1 of the 2 colourless sources. Thunderheads exiles at beginning of the next end step, which would make the combo all-in and wouldnt allow consectutive Polymorph attempts. SwanSong would require me to target my own spells which isnt very productive. Final Depths of Desire is a consideration of mine, but feels slightly weaker and I have gone for the Enchantment of Trail of Evidence for token generators instead.
If you have any other idea's I'll be happy to listen.

If thats your complaint about polymorph, how about Mass Polymorph or Proteus Staff? I don't like Hordeling Outburst compared to instant speed options- cards like Warping Wail, Thunderheads Swan Song or even Depths of Desire feel more reliable for that 'in your turn'/'in my turn' combo.

If I may make a suggestion, ease off the treasure production spells in exchange for spells that produce the same board state effect for less mana. Though they make you a treasure or 2, they slow the deck down considerably. Contract Killing for instance is terribly in effective at eliminating a threat compared to 2 more Fatal Push or Doomfall. Pirate's Prize & Spell Swindle work well, but Depths of Desire doesn't fit at all in a control deck, if tempo was a goal I would suggest Unsummon instead but here its taking up space for better cards. Inspiring Statuary is interesting, but wasn't consistent enough to rely on.

Nathanaiel, I have had a look at some investigate and other artifact token generating cards (not many, mainly treasure from ixalan). And my best option seems to be Trail of Evidence, which generates card advantage and clue tokens, which both seem like good options for my deck. I will have a think to if I want to add this or not later, and what would come out for it.

Why you playing Urza's combo lands? There no chance to tutor them in game.
Why you dont play other spells that gives treasures? Depths of Desire for example
Isn't you have poor card advantage? Once you played your entire hand (what is easy because of a lot of cheap spells) you have only 2 non-cantrip cards.

Also, Depths of Desire helps control the board a little more with the bonus of more treasure
