I'm with Catbeard, the land count seems pretty low. Maybe run some utility lands to offset the number of rocks, so even if you're flooding you don't necessarily hate drawing them, examples: Academy Ruins, Arch of Orazca, Arcane Lighthouse,Blighted Cataract, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls if you already own one, those are pricey, Command Beacon, Desolate Lighthouse, you get the idea. If I were you I'd take out Flusterstorm and maybe Spell Swindle for more versatile and easier to cast counterspell package like Arcane Denial and maybe Negate. It allows you to use your turn better without needing to hold up 5 mana, and also lets you counter more things than Flusterstorm. And stuff like Search for azcanta seems good, scrying in general. And if you're looking to do lots of cantripping with cheap artifacts, Mind's Desire, or Haze of Rage might be pretty sweet payoffs. and if you fill up your hand, maybe Stormbreath Dragon?

In my first few games of testing this deck out I am finding the following cards don't perform (at least in my play group/local meta):

  • Psychosis Crawler - I usually tend to have very few cards in hand until the turn I go off, at which point I've already won.
  • Goblin Welder - The few times I've had this on board, there's been no artifacts in any graveyards so it's been a 1/1 chump blocker. Perhaps it's worth keeping so that if my Isochron Scepter is removed I can get it back?

Other cards that are top of the list for being cut if a suitable replacement card is found:

If anybody has any ideas for cards that I'm missing that would either a) speed up my assembly of winning combinations of cards, or b) improve my preservation to last long enough to assemble the winning combinations of cards, I would be really grateful to hear from you!!

I didn't realize you were saying that you owned an Ensnaring Bridge and not a Desolate Lighthouse. Just in case you missed it, 10 Island and 7 Mountain is the new number because of the number of blue instants.

Desolate Lighthouse is for that occasion when you have no hand and are relying on top-decking good cards, the Desolate Lighthouse gives you a second chance. It can also be a mana sink (when you have nothing to do with your mana). I have made an update and there was a part of the day when the deck was 59 cards so the list should have 2 Torrential Gearhulk, 2 Thunderbreak Regent, and 4 Serum Visions.

YEAH, I have too, the 4 life cost isn't significant when you consider the rest of the game! Btw, what is the point o Desolate Lighthouse?

I feel this deck wants both Opt and Serum Visions. Also, Desolate Lighthouse and Vendilion Clique might be decent as well.

Sinkies Thank you for your comment!

Actually because of the powerlevel of my playgroup I won't be able to take out the infinite combos if I want to stand a chance to win.

About your deck: You probably want most of the filter lands and pay lands, since you will want to cast some Eldrazis and they give colorless and fixing, maybe also things like Desolate Lighthouse!

Panharmonicon will help you to reuse the ETB effects of your big creatures (with Panharmonicon and Riku of Two Reflections in the battlefield something like Thought-Knot Seer can trigger 6 times, leaving 2 tokens). You might want to check out (if you don't already know them) Triumph of the Hordes and Guided Passage which can be a lot of fun if someone is willing to give you what you need!!!

About counters to protect your creatures i'd recommend things like Pyroblast for the enemmy counters and Cyclonic Rift's, Turn Aside and Intervene for the one target removals and Warping Wail for most areas and some flexibility. Also look for some ramp you can duplicate with Riku of Two Reflections, maybe Yavimaya Elder or Sakura-Tribe Elder.

Hope I was of any help, and good luck with your deck!! Will love to see it finished
