Encircling Fissure Discussion

Thanks for the tips and suggestions! I really do like the versatility of Vanish into Memory and will be making that switch for sure. Energy Arc and Herald of Secret Streams seem to be interesting, but I've had several instances in my playgroup where the flying from Abzan Falconer has come in handy on the defense, and the lifegain from Riot Control has kept me alive from minor poking that didn't warrant a removal spell. I may even need to go down my awaken pet cards of Coastal Discovery and Encircling Fissure! Mirrorweave might replace my Cataclysmic Gearhulk or Urza's Ruinous Blast.
As for your deck... it seems sweet! I think I'll even replace my Burnished Hart with a Thaumatic Compass Flip. Would definitely recommend a Nimbus Maze as an untapped triple land for Kozilek. I also recommend Drownyard Temple just as a recurrable land. Cards like Anticipate and Winds of Rebuke seem to be underpowered as you have other cards in the deck that do their job better. Would recommend Metallurgic Summonings as a less frail Docent of Perfection Flip or Talrand, Sky Summoner. You do have an amount of tapped duals/utility lands but how has Amulet of Vigor been? Then again everyone's meta is different so I don't know how low and fast your deck needs to be. My deck tries to be as creature light as I can since I'm usually trying to wipe the board, but Nezahal, Primal Tide, Kefnet the Mindful look good with their ways to protect themselves and to draw cards.

Find that HP altered Jitte FTW/trade ;)
In addition to Comeuppance, Settle the Wreckage is helpful, as are some cards to smooth out combat, like Reconnaissance, High Ground, and Serra's Blessing. Flicker cards like Ghostway can give you an out during combat, as well, but will drop your equipment. Mark of Asylum might be good.
Holy Day, Dawn Charm, Riot Control, Encircling Fissure, Harmless Assault, and Pollen Lullaby can nerf combat damage for a turn. Something like Fumigate or Descend upon the Sinful can save you and add some value other wraths don't (like Wrath of God and Day of Judgment).

Nice deck idea. I built something like this a few weeks ago, it has since then been changed and ultimately retired. Not sure how I felt about the deck as it would get torn up by most control based decks. (Go figure, midrange always loses against control). Did better against agro shells and creature based decks. Link to the deck list is posted below.
Originally, the deck was a bant fog shell with great creature curve. Haze of Pollen and Encircling Fissure held the opponents at bay while you waited to build up your board state. Planar Outburst was used as a board wipe just in case opponent were running zombies or creature heavy decks and the plus side was that your land creatures were left alone.
Using Wall of Resurgence to put counters on Cascading Cataracts for a 3/3 indestructible creature who could eventually have flying thanks to Halimar Tidecaller seemed pretty good. The extra graveyard recursion thanks to the tidecaller, made Coastal Discovery and other awaken cards that much better. Sylvan Advocate is a great lord if Fatal Push or other cheap removal isn't running around and Eldrazi Displacer was great with resurgence. Slam down a Verdurous Gearhulk and throw the counters on your creature lands made for a great board state /finisher.
For planswalkers, I threw in Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Kiora, Master of the Depths for the extra control. Not sure if these were even a right fit for the deck, but they worked sometimes. Not sure if this helps, but I did like this deck archetype a lot.
The issue I had with the deck was that if Cascading Cataracts was removed or bounced, you were that much further behind. Not sure what else can be done to improve this deck. But +1 for sure!

Thx for the ideas, you definitely touched on some of the concerns I have. This deck is theory, debut at the Salinas, Calif. "GP" Sunday if I can make it
Card Draw is lacking and yes Providence is first on the chopping block.
But, maybe Pacification Array is good to go for more early game stall?
Thanks for the thoughts, the cycling disenchant would be ideal sideboard material as I havent begun to build one yet.

I've been keeping my ear to the ground for this deck and one thing I've seen be really effective is a Gideon of the Trials. The brew they had was much more fog based with Repel the Abominable, Encircling Fissure, and Haze of Pollen. They instead relied on Fevered Visions and Pull from Tomorrow for their draw and I didn't see any New Perspectives. Now I am by no means saying to overhaul your whole deck, just letting you know what I see people doing with Approach of the Second Sun so maybe you can use some of their work to makes yours better.
Of the cards I saw the guy use, Gideon of the Trials seems the most useful, but I'm not sure if you have the space for it.

This one is probably the best for your deck Terra Eternal making lands indestructible is super powerful!
