What if you put in 1-2 copies of Docent of Perfection  Flip?! I mean... you could do worse.

Also i would add cards that gives you tokens when you cast instants and sorceries such as Young Pyromancer, Docent of Perfection  Flip, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Metallurgic Summonings, and Murmuring Mystic this way you can focus more on casting them and still have creatures Also Primal Amulet  Flip, Mizzix of the Izmagnus, Charmbreaker Devils, Electrostatic Field, Sphinx-Bone Wand are a must have. Curious Homunculus  Flip, Guttersnipe, Dynavolt Tower, and Pyre Hound would be a good add as well.

Themysteriousone: I might include it, but it's pretty heavily out-classed by Docent of Perfection  Flip...

thejeffreyman, control as a main strategy with Inalla as Commander is much very different than what this deck is doing. That being said you have the right idea with Docent of Perfection  Flip. But to play this card and use it with control you want to play lots of low mana cost instants and sorceries especially dig/draw. Dig/Draw for two main reasons you have to first actually find/draw Docent. Then when you have Docent in play to use your mana more efficiently to make Wizard tokens while digging/drawing at the same time to find more instants/sorceries.

You'll want much more instants/sorceries than creatures. In a sense this conflicts with using Inalla as a Commander because her eminence is the most powerful ability and it requires creatures. Using Inalla mainly as a combo piece is fine because she's a combo piece in the Command Zone, you don't have to tutor/find her or worry about drawing her. I now see why you want to play Sundial of the Infinite because the more Wizard tokens you have the better Final Iteration is.

Cards that could be good with a control version of Inalla with a focus on Wizard tokens, which aren't played here. I don't know what your budget is so I'll suggest nonbudget cards as well as budget ones (in no order):

Clones seem good with Docent. Being able to clone it and then make even more tokens when you cast an instant or sorcery. Clones of Iteration also add more pump to Wizards giving Wizards +4 power with flying with two Interation is a lot. Cloning Docent however will not let you flip the clone of Docent into Iteration because Clones are not double sided cards. The only way to get a clone of Iteration is to actually clone Iteration after Docent flips into it. Clones are also very good with eminence because you don't have to choose to clone your own creature with the eminence copy token you can choose to clone an opponent's creature if you want.

Clones to consider that aren't played here:

I would recommend removing Thing in the Ice  Flip. I ran it in my Naru Meha, Master Wizard deck, and it just got in the way. I was like, "Oh no. If I cast this Turn Aside, I'll lose my transformed Docent of Perfection  Flip and my tokens."

Maybe you'd like running Mirari for redundancy.

And if you'd like to view a noncompetitive deck (it won two out of ten matches), feel free to pop on over to:

Hey there first of all I am quite new to deckbuilding (so please be patient with me ^^).

But I think even though Delver of Secrets  Flip and Docent of Perfection  Flip don't synergize that well with the deck in terms of their creature type.I would still say that both of them provide a TON of value to the deck especially Docent of Perfection  Flip because of its ability to produce more wizards + when its flipped it makes all your wizards stronger,so in my opinion thats too much value to miss out on.

Other then that I think splashing in red might me be a great idea with Lightning Bolt and Wizard's Lightning (allthough I am not that big of a fan of splahing in colors in general because it tends to be quite inconsistent judging from my own experience).

And yes I feel really dumb for not including Wizard's Retort (I just totally forgot about it lol).
