Dreamstone Hedron Discussion

Cut these boisss
Dreamstone Hedron too high of cmc
Fellwar Stone only a two color deck with green - don't really need this
Add more early game green ramp spells; colorless mana you accrue with Kruphix should be put towards late game colorless spells like Eldrazi because that's when you'll be collecting colorless mana
Admiral's Order the discount works only on your turn (either cut or replace with a different one)
Scour from Existence if you don't have Kruphix, I can see this card just being sad to have in your hand

Initial thoughts: Your curve is very 3 mana heavy, this is good and bad, means you can flood early, but leads to some dead draws late, assuming good draws, this will be fine.
For the amount of life you gain, Rhox Faithmender may be good in this deck. Big emphasis on may though.
For the amount of recursion you have, you need more sacrifice outlets. Diamond Valley Miren, the Moaning Well Phyrexian Tower Innocent Blood Vampiric Rites maybe even Carnage Altar Diabolic IntentDisciple of Griselbrand Hidden Stockpile Skirsdag Flayer Ashnod's Altar Attrition Bontu the Glorified
Oh, you sorta require Grave Pact I know it has a HUGE black requirement, but it's very much required in this sort of deck.
Some cards I'd consider cutting:
Arashin Cleric not good enough.
Greed you already have Erebos, God of the Dead you may as well replace with something better like Yawgmoth's Bargain Arguel's Blood Fast Flip that being said, you need more card draw. So maybe grab Necropotence or some of the other draw cards I've recommended here.
Some misc cards/tings (boom) you may want to consider:
Enchantment tribal? Constellation is a fun mechanic.

I highly suggest running more cards that punish the opponent for doing normal moves like drawing, whilst protecting yourself at the same time. Also, Suggestions: run Nevinyrral's Disk, Curse of Exhaustion, Black Vise, and Collective Restraint, and BTW thanks for running Norn's Annex it makes me happy. I would drop Dreamstone Hedron because it costs six and you 3 mana isn't great for that card draw, especially when you might use a card like preordain. Also, part of control requires that you have the right answers at the right time, so even if you have a lot of answers in your deck, I would suggest adding in some more tutoring (Im not seeing any?) or at least a sensei's divining top.

Hey there, saw the video Muddstah did featuring your deck. I am long time Boros player myself so I had a few questions about some cards in your deck. How have Dreamstone Hedron, Raging River, and Thran Temporal Gateway performed for you? Raging seems interesting, had never thought about it. Also wondering if Dreamstone is worth the 6 cmc slot. Also Impact Resonance seems interesting, something I might consider for my sunforger decks.
In the video a Homeward Path would have been really helpful. I can confirm that with these large creature decks you really want to have that in there.
Anyway, Id love to hear your thoughts on the deck, whats working, whats not.
You can check out some of my Aurelia decks right here if youd like.

Cut Dreamstone Hedron. Same CMC, but you don't need the ramp that badly, I think.
When I'm looking for a cut, I just play the deck with that in mind. When you get a dead draw, that should be sideboarded and you can experiment with your new card
That's just my 2 cents.

I see most of the key Eldrazi you're trying to get out are good because of the, "when you cast". Perhaps Dreamstone Hedron instead of Planar Bridge, which would nullify that effect from your big bois.? Might as well just cast them sooner and get the effects.

Hope you don't mind some suggestions from ya boi Owen. I've looked thoroughly through your list and have some ideas to propose to you. Totally up to you whether or not to use these cards (I won't be offended either way- at the end of the day this still looks like a solid, fun list!). But here are some suggestions:
Replace some of the counterspells: I've noticed you've put a lot of counters in here. This is good- make sure people can't achieve their wincons. But 19 might be a little too much- mono blue can work very effectively with just 10 counterspells (especially with the draw and topdeck manipulation you will be able to achieve with this deck). Here are in my opinion the top ten best budget counterspells: Arcane Denial, Swan Song, Counterspell, Mana Leak, Foil, Pact of Negation, Summary Dismissal, Disallow, Muddle the Mixture, Condescend. And of course you have access to Mana Drain which could easily replace any counter out of the ones I just listed. Even if you want to stay at 19 counters, I would highly recommend taking out Annul, Ceremonious Rejection, Essence Scatter, and Spell Shrivel to put in cards like Swan Song, Arcane Denial, and Foil.
Draw Spells: You've got good stuff in here like Pull from Tomorrow and Stroke of Genius, but sometimes paying X every time you want to draw cards can be a bit too much (especially when you are trying to cast high cost Sphinxes). I'd recommend removing Stroke of Genius, Fact or Fiction, and Fortune's Favor to put in Frantic Search, Dig Through Time, and Paradoxical Outcome. Frantic Search lets you untap lands, Dig Through Time is just too good, and Paradoxical Outcome can let you net mana off of bouncing Sol Ring while also letting you get more ETB effects off of your replayed creatures. For strong early game draw, I'd recommend removing Braingeyser to fit in Mystic Remora.
Ramp: Since your average CMC of the deck is 3.48 and blue gives very little access to land ramp like green, you'll need to back that up with a buttload of artifact ramp. You need to put in Thran Dynamo, Mind Stone, and Sapphire Medallion. They will help you a LOT. Having Dreamstone Hedron, Everflowing Chalice, and Caged Sun in here addition to the other artifact ramp will definitely give you an edge over other players in mana. Also I'd recommend putting in at least 3 more islands.
Acid Rain: This card makes me lol against mono green players. It seems entertaining but may be a useless draw when playing against decks that don't run green. Or even if they do run green it could be something like my Surrak Dragonclaw deck that only runs a few forests with most everything else being nonbasics that don't have forest type like Karplusan Forest. Due to this, if you want to put in some land hate, run Frozen AEther. People will hate you but it's not too mean and it certainly puts you ahead and gains you even more counterspell advantage.
Sphinxes: Here are some Sphinxes I've found that I think would really do you a lot of work and versatility in this deck: Guardian of Tazeem, Chancellor of the Spires, Sphinx Ambassador, and Deadeye Navigator. Yeah, I know the Navigator isn't a Sphinx but he can blink your Sphinxes to get their ETB effects as well as Unesh's trigger. Endless value for only 2 mana.
Target Removal: I would recommend taking out a couple counterspells in order to fit in Reality Shift, Rapid Hybridization, Pongify, AEtherspouts, or AEtherize. These cards have insane value. Everyone expects a counterspell, but nobody expects their Pathbreaker Ibex to suddenly become a 3/3 Pepe the frog at the end of main phase.
The Immortal Sun. This card would do wonders for this deck- you saw first hand how well it worked on Saturday night. Imagine James trying to play that goddamn Teferi, Temporal Archmage with Immortal Sun out. Glorious.
Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds. Think about these two for a second. They come into play, you sac them and go fetch and island and put the island into play tapped. Your deck is mono blue- so the only thing you can fetch with these is a basic island. If you just replace these with basic islands they'll come in untapped.
Anywho- those are my recommendations! Hope they help and I'm really looking forward to seeing you play this deck! Sorry I went into so much gross detail about my suggestions but I really do love looking through lists and then writing about them.
