Here are some things I don't see that you might like: Docent of Perfection, Galecaster Colossus, Information Dealer, Supreme Inquisitor.

Archetype of Imagination - Costs too much, your drakes will fly. Other creatures should be for USEFUL utility or defense.

Dragon's Eye Savants - Very weak effect. If you really like to know their hand, Telepathy does that much better (don't recommend either)

Galecaster Colossus - Has some synergy with some wizards. It costs too much, even with potential synergy. You could replace this with an expensive counterspell or just more ramp/card draw.

Graceful Adept - See Reliquary Tower, Venser's Journal and Thought Vessel for a better replacement.

Mistfire Adept - Costs too much for what it does.

Paragon of Gathering Mists - Anthem affects are ok. They are usually considered "win more", meaning, if you are winning (have an advantageous board state filled with drakes/creatures), then they will help you "win more." If someone wrathed while you were tapped out and you draw this, then it will be effectively useless. You want to limit the number of "dead" cards in EDH.

Shorecrasher Elemental - No real way to abuse it (unless I'm missing something?). Replace with a 3 CMC counterspell, draw or bounce effect.

Simic Fluxmage - You are not playing simic, don;t use this card. Very weak effect with little to no synergy

Simic Manipulator - See above

Who's the commander? Is there a specific reason we need to be Esper? Because Impact Tremors, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Earthcraft, Glare of Subdual, Kyren Negotiations, and Llanowar Behemoth could all be good. It would also allow you to add Voyaging Satyr/Kiora's Follower + Intruder Alarm + Forbidden Orchard for another infinite, and allow you to add Birds of Paradise type cards so Puppet Conjurer type cards could be infinite.

For the Impact Tremors, you have Altar of the Brood kind of.

Tap for Token: Marrow-Gnawer (requires another rat to start), Skirsdag High Priest (requires Morbid and 2 other creatures to start)

Tap outlets: Galecaster Colossus, Hair-Strung Koto, Mothdust Changeling, Patron Wizard, Opposition,

Other cards that could be good: Wake Thrasher,

Hi, nice list here. I am in the process of optimizing my own wizardball deck with another commander featuring Paradox Engine, but this looks more tuned so it's a good source of inspiration.

Why no Helm of Obedience? You're already running Rest in Peace and RIP Helm is actually a wincon that benefits greatly from having untap triggers available.

I saw you dropped Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir from the list (it's still in the description. What prompted that change?

I see that you use Galecaster Colossus. I love the effect but I couldn't bring myself to include it on the basis of its high CMC. How has it performed for you in testing?

Last but not least: the Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite inclusion. Is wizard beats a natural plan B and Living Plane a plan C for the deck? How confident are you that these two belong in the deck? It feels somewhat debtable without a way to cheat Elesh into play.

"So even if I missed countering something I don't like, I return it to hand, so I can counter it later. Capsize is your best friend in this deck, even if it is a bit boring. Just as Cyclonic Rift. I still have to find something cool and synergistic here."

I found Dispersing Orb, Blizzard Specter, Banishing Knack & Retraction Helix (so Ertai can do it himself), Galecaster Colossus, and Tidespout Tyrant so far.

Heyo!!! I'm currently working on a concept revolving around Throne of the God-Pharaoh and tapping creatures in Grixis colours. At the helm, I've got Inalla, Archmage Ritualist, with support from Opposition, Azami, Lady of Scrolls and Galecaster Colossus. I need to fill in the gaps with decent wizards and other ways to find/recur my important pieces from the grave, as well as making this janky build as viable as it can be for a casual, yet response heavy meta. Any ideas?

Love this deck- building it but making a few changes, adding in Galecaster Colossus and Aphetto Grifter to give more options for the wizard tap abilities.
