I'm not sure I understand all of the artifact recursion: Reconstruction , Junk Diver , Myr Retriever , and Junk Diver .

With that extra space you might consider:
Dramatic Reversal would combo well with your Isochron Scepter and large mana rocks for infinite mana.
Dream Cache and Sensei's Divining Top for more topdeck manipulation.
Stroke of Genius if you want any more redundant draw X.
Fade Away , Inundate or Wash Out for some board control.
Long-Term Plans to tutor for a spell to topdeck with Kefnet.

...Although you could run Price of Glory with Drain Power or Fade Away although I'm not sure if you'd want to do that in multiplayer.

I think this is a really original concept for a Pauper resource denial deck. The inclusion of Fade Away I especially like with this kind of setup. That being said, I think there are a few basic things you can do, a few bigger things you can do, and some sideboard shenanigans you can get into to make this deck truly primo.

First, there are a few basic card subs I would make. First off, you can straight up cut Street Wraith for Gitaxian Probe , it just fits better in this deck and does the same thing but strictly better. The other main cards I would sub would be to add in Daze for Force Spike . I was skeptical of Daze 's power over Force Spike at first, but I was converted very soon.

That's it for basic changes, but here are some important structural changes. Firstly, the main problem I see here is keeping your hand full and repeatedly denying resources. I have no idea how competitive your local meta is, but all I can say is that higher-level Pauper is 100% Legacy-Lite, meaning it plays a lot like Legacy. This means lands don't matter that much to the average deck. Many decks are perfectly fine with you keeping them at 3 lands, so the trick is going to be denying multiple lands per turn rather than just playing 1 or 2 bounce spells at best.

So how do we get repeatable effects? Well Capsize is pretty good but also pretty expensive. One way we can do this is to play Snow-Covered Island s and Rimewind Taskmage . You can also add in the artifact lands (and maybe Tumble Magnet ?) to use Vedalken Certarch .

These are really the only halfway decent repeatable land denial cards in this format. Thus card draw is going to be key to drawing some of the one-time denial spells. Without the Pauper fetches (because this is a mono color deck) Preordain is probably your best bet. On top of this, you may want to run Gush to keep your hand full. Trading cards for lands that can just be replayed is not a very sustainable model in the long term, so these powerful draw spells can help you get there.

Finally, as far as finishers go you can run AEthersnipe as just a big boy that gets a blocker out of the way or Stormbound Geist as a flyer that's hard to put down. Canal Courier is also a big body that will net you a bunch of card draw, which will be useful to grind out your opponents.

Finally, in the sideboard, I would run Hydroblast to destroy red decks, Aura Flux to destroy Bogles, and maybe some Foil s to protect your cards from tricky tempo and control decks.

Anyway, I really like this deck, keep working at it!

Awesome commander! I don't think I have ever run across another deck centered around Floodgate before. Your potential for board control is really great!

Some cards that come to mind that you may want to consider are Symbol of Unsummoning and straight up Unsummon - Just some more cards to help activate your commander.

As far as your issue with flying and blue creatures goes, the only cards I can think of that might help are Riptide and maybe Fade Away. Not a whole lot of other sweeper effects for blue pauper...

Fade Away seems nearly always worse than Shrivel or Evincar's Justice. In particular, awful against elves, speaking from experience

Evincar's Justice might be better than Fade Away, since elves can deal so well with Fade by producing a gorillion mana. Also reusable, late game

Grubbernaut, Fade Away is best handled by the Quirion Ranger + Priest of Titania as they can only play it starting on turn 3. if you are playing against blue you have to be conservative anyway, so that matchup doesn't really improve post board.

cohandel09, glad to help out!
