Etherium Sculptor Discussion

With Islandwalk potentially being the difference between a win and loss, perhaps Quicksilver Fountain would be of use here.
Chart a Course seems to fit thematically, but you'd need some more creatures to make it viable. Jace's Ingenuity is just bad. It makes Harmonize look like a dream. As rule of thumb, draw card isn't good if it works out to much more than 1CMC/card drawn. And it doesn't create card advantage unless you're drawing at least 2 cards - that is - can-tripping is deck-thinning. I don't think you want to deck thin here, because those slots are better used for lands you need to cast your big creatures. Divination is probably the more acceptable option, though I'm not particularly found of it.
Another option: use Master Transmuter to drop an Inkwell Leviathan . This would require more artifacts, but that could be the way to go - things like Springleaf Drum and Paradise Mantle with Ornithopters can be a very fast mana ramp. You'd also get Stoic Rebuttal , Darksteel Citadel , and creatures like Etherium Sculptor . If you do go with artifacts, Buried Ruin would be smart.

8cmc is daunting, I know, and your deck has about a dozen mana ramp options which is decent. Only a handful will combo with it, but gets better with Etherium Sculptor . Hopefully you can get your Grim Monolith and Mana Crypt eventually.
It can also be a control piece, removing troublesome permanents or blockers every time you cast another spell
Here's my Izzet list if you want to check it out for ideas. Have fun!

You could definitely turn this into a combo-ish deck with some Myr Retriever s and Krark-Clan Ironworks . Arcbound Ravager could be a good wincon, especially if you put Inkmoth Nexus in the deck, and it would let you sacrifice the artifacts that draw when they die. I think just Atog would be better than megatog just because it comes down earlier. Grinding Station could be interesting; you could mill yourself, then use mishra and your artifacts in your hand to bring back all the artifacts from the graveyard, then mill the opponent. Sai, Master Thopterist could be good in long games for card draw and as a sac outlet. I don't think kasmina is super good ( Padeem, Consul of Innovation would be better here) and I think you should play more Etherium Sculptor s.

I just actually found the deck list. my bad for saying what you're already using on the other post. If Ensnaring Bridge isn't working for all the draw you have, Ghostly Prison or Pollen Lullaby ? I still like Etherium Sculptor here.

Etherium Sculptor and Ichor Wellspring seem good here. I would say Second Sunrise but it's banned. Maybe Open the Vaults ? In standard Time Sieve combo was called turbo fog so I would look into that kind of stuff as well as some can-trip arts like Chromatic Star / Chromatic Sphere , and maybe Mind Stone
