Tomar, Zealous Lawmage
Legendary Planeswalker - Tomar
+1: Create two 1/1 red and white Soldier creature tokens with Haste.
+1: Detain target nonland permanent.
-3: You get an emblem with ", exile this Emblem: Copy target instant or sorcery with converted mana cost X you control. You may choose a new target for the copy."
-7: Detain all nonland permanents your opponents control. Tomar, Zealous Lawmage deals 3 damage to each opponent and each creature your opponents control.
To Be Sure
Copy target instant or sorcery spell with one or more targets.
"Better do it one more time."
Tomar is an Azorius lawmage with a particular affinity for a more...bombastic approach to enforcing the law. He uses whatever he deems necessary, which often includes pyroclastic displays, semi-tested Izzet technology, and favors called in from Boros.
Then I had the idea for To Be Sure. It can't redirect targets, so you're stuck with whatever you were killing/targeting initially. But if you need two bolts on the same thing, or even better, double damage/draw for Electrolyze....
Make a 'walker that every ability concerns emblems somehow. DO NOT make it OP, skew UP if you can't tell. Try not to make it...too complicated. :D

Did a bunch of playtesting last night with someone who is helping me brainstorm ideas for the deck. Started off clunky, but after some mainboard counterspell changes, and a crash course in control (this is my first real blue deck ever), it really started to improve.
Ended the night knowing that I need more pressure on the ground, or a way to mitigate the damage I was taking before I could stabilize. Also, even though the mana curve was okay, smoothing it out was definitely something that needed to be done. I brought the curve down a bit, and also added some pressure through Delver of Secrets Flip. The fact that TiTi bounces it isn't that big of a deal, because you can just immediately recast it very easily.
I would really like to get some Opts into the deck, I'm just really not sure where they would go. I'm not sure if putting the Electrolyzes in the SB is the right idea, but that would be the easiest spot to try.

I think its useable and will be seen often in budet delver/wizard builds. I don't think this will be a card that is ran often as a 4x playset but more like how Electrolyze sees play. Not having double blue in the Mana cost and being a hard counter that pings for damage is definitely appealing.

I really like what you going for but I think that it needs to be refocused, Goblin Guide is really out of place, I think for your creatures I would run 4 titi, 4 peezy and then 2 Nimble Obstructionist or maybe a Crackling Drake as a 1 -1 split with obstructionist! I'm really excited to see it in modern as a izzet finisher!
Pyromancer Ascension is pretty out of place without a solid way to fill your yard, i would just drop it for 2 land
for your spells you should have at least 8-10 cantrips, 4 Serum Visions is a must, and then some combination of Opt, Thought Scour (if you switch to Logic Knot) and then maybe Chart a Course. to make room for this i would drop Deprive to a 2-3 of, Electrolyze to a 1-2, all of Ionize for 2 Logic Knot and then Risk Factor to a 2-3 of.
Good luck! I hope that I was some help!

thank you ToolmasterOfBrainerd for the advice!
Yeah, I know Remand can be good as well as Electrolyze, but I am not sure if I want to keep the Forked Bolt. I am toying with the idea of a 3rd Terminate or a MB Dispel, possibly even 1 Logic Knot. I could maybe go 2 Logic Knots and go down a Mana Leak.
Pretty much what I am getting so far is that game 1 is a L to zoo when it comes to Grixis Delver.

After looking up a few decklists, it doesn't seem like Big Zoo is running Tarmogoyf. This is good for Grixis. Because then they only have Loxodon Smiter and Knight of the Reliquary to be bigger than Anger of the Gods, and maybe some fringe like 1 Baneslayer Angel. I think I'd approach the matchup like 5 color humans, except that counterspells are still useful. Spell Snare especially.
It also looks like Bloodbraid is taking the spot of Collected Company. This is even better because I used to board in Dispel against Zoo because of Path to Exile and Collected Company. Now I will no longer look silly for drawing Dispel against their hand of all creatures.
With your deck, I'd venture to say it's less a problem of sideboarding and more a problem with mainboard tuning. Electrolyze and Forked Bolt line up very poorly against Zoo. Remand doesn't really do anything against them. They're all great cards vs Mardu Pyromancer, but I don't think I like them against most of modern right now.
I really like the Spellskites in your sideboard vs Zoo. Definitely board those in. They can sit in front of Wild Nacatl all game long until they redirect a Path to Exile from Gurmag Angler to themselves. I admit I don't like Spellskite vs the meta, but vs Zoo it's amazing.

Awww a good old delver list +1 for that!
