gyakuza and Chaosdragon13 : Thanks for the support guys. I'm always forgetting that Elite Arcanist can only exile sorceries. I think both of you are right when you say I need some ways to protect the Sage of Hours so I added in some Simic Charm s and Mizzium Skin s. I like the inclusion of Fog and Elite Arcanist because exiling a fog on the arcanist can win games with Azor's Elocutors in play. Elite Arcanist now also allows me to repeatedly cast hexproof giving spells and will often eat kill spells in place of the sage. Thanks for the advice and feedback!
I see you're point about shuffling in your graveyard and starting fresh. It's an additional security blanket certainly. The only thing with another Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is that in a 1v1 or 2 headed giant game, if Spawnsire of Ulamog is dropped it's already game. The extra turn allows everything to attack for a total of annihilator 21 + 1 for Spawnsire. And they've already sacked their colored permanents for All Is Dust , and put them under my control thanks to It That Betrays . So even if they have a Fog or something, the annihilator still means they almost certainly have no options if they do live to get another turn.
And plus that's another $30+ dollars I really don't wanna spend right now
You don't need to worry about Fog , no one plays it aside from Maze's End decks, it's near non-existant in Standard! :D
Archangel of Thune + Fathom Mage + Horizon Chimera is currently the only infinite draw mechanic in standard, I believe. Probably worth throwing a Strionic Resonator in here so you can copy the imprint trigger on Elite Arcanist and cast two spells with every activation. This opens up the possibility of a pseudo-prison type effect with the addition of Fog and Silence to prevent your opponent from casting spells and dealing damage with creatures on their upkeep.
Excellent idea!!! With that being said, some constructive criticism:
Rites of Flourishing would be killer here, alongside Oracle of Mul Daya especially. Howling Mine and Font of Mythos add to the Mill/Draw aspect. If you go that route, I would also suggest Reliquary Tower and even Venser's Journal .
