+1...This looks fun, not typical of UB pauper decks. Not sure if you know, Cloud of Faeries is banned in pauper...possible replacements to consider: Drake Familiar(good for resetting Unstable Mutation), Elusive Spellfist or Tidehollow Strix.

I'd remove Bump in the Night to help your deck focus on protecting your creatures and getting more creatures into your deck altogether.

Damage from Psychic Venom can be ignored by low CMC decks like Burn and U/R Delver which can play off their other lands or MBC which mitigates life-loss with Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

I'd cut those 6 and bring in: 4th copy of Vapor Snag, 3 copies of Mutagenic Growth to protect your creatures from burn and get in for more damage, 2 copies of Elusive Spellfist which has a mini-prowess effect and becomes unblockable when you play any non-creature spell that turn.

Since you're playing U you have access to cards like: Preordain, Ponder, Brainstorm, Gush, and Daze to perform a variety of functions like helping you draw/filter cards.

UB gives you access to: Soul Manipulation (can be played as a 1-of or 2-of) and potentially Probe as a 1-of.

as for Jeskai Student isn't Elusive Spellfist just better in a different color?

Possible Enlightened Ascetic for flavor in side if you see a lot of enchentments.

I really like Stratus Dancer in something like this too. its not really expected. Maybe in side vs slower decks. It's a good monk control card

Jeskai Infiltrator Just looks fun

Delver of Secrets  Flip seems out of place. What about Immolating Souleater or Elusive Spellfist?

But if I were you, I'd run either 4x of Kiln Fiend or Guttersnipe. Both are classics and both deal tremendous damage. Between Delver and Swiftspear, I think you've got combat covered. So I'd go with non-combat (Guttersnipe). Which is kind of weird; He's your Featured Card, after all...

Another good card is Elusive Spellfist. I run a UW Prowess that uses a playset of him. Works really well.

1.I would cut the Artful Dodge for Sleight of Hand. More cantrips will help you build spell count while filtering through the deck

  1. I agree drop the Gut Shot for Rift Bolt. This will give you needed removal so your creatures can attack while adding to spell count.

  2. Soul-Scar Mage for Monastery Swiftspear4.maybe run x3 Elusive Spellfist instead of Kiln Fiend because it gives its self unblockable and pick up one more copy of Stormchaser Mage for the haste.

  3. As much as it pains me to say delver of secrets instead of Blistercoil Weird. Neither one of these creatures are going to swing turn 1. Delver does have evasion and while it doesnt pump with spell count its still a very real clock and complements the Titan's Strength and the Assault Strobe.

I hope these suggestions are helpful, but you should make the changes you want for your deck.

Elusive Spellfist would be nice to get some more damage through, also there are a lot of replacements for shock that do the same thing but better, Magma Spray for example

Elusive Spellfist

Cast X spells, deal X damage with Thermo-Alchemist then swing with unblockable Elusive Spellfist for X+1 damage.
