I have some suggestions, you can run Quicksilver Amulet to cheat creatures from hand or Thran Temporal Gateway , if you up the number of historic permanents. Or even Arcane Artisan for a similar effect.

You can run Gate to the AEther for a similar Braids effect. And some cards that grant flash to creatures, like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , to play Braids at the end of opponent turn.

As a finishing touch, you can run Blue reanimator cards like Hour of Eternity , God-Pharaoh's Gift , Argivian Restoration and Body Double , as a subtheme.

imho if you intend to go to this route and you have no intention of going Mayael, then I would add in Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Rites of Flourishing , Collective Voyage , Veteran Explorer , Hypergenesis , Magus of the Vineyard , Ghirapur Orrery , Reality Scramble , Sunbird's Invocation , Selvala's Stampede , Gate to the AEther , etc. to be able to play a lot of these cards without getting mana screwed since you won't always draw Mayael and have an obscenely high avg cmc.

I would look into more cards like Goblin Sharpshooter , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Krenko, Mob Boss , Sylvan Library , Combat Celebrant , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , Angel of Condemnation , Ahn-Crop Champion (and various other exert cards)), Elvish Piper , etc.

You could also definitely go for infinite attack phases with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Combat Celebrant , Hellkite Charger + Savage Ventmaw , Godo, Bandit Warlord , Aurelia, the Warleader , etc.

Honorable Mentions: Vernal Equinox , Possibility Storm (trade cheaper creatures in for your larger ones), Oath of Druids , Yisan, the Wanderer Bard , Champion of Rhonas , Sword of the Animist , Sword of Feast and Famine , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Feldon of the Third Path , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , etc.

Let me know how the list comes along.

@Wurmspiralmaschine14: Your username makes me think of Wurmcoil Engine. (: That aside, Gate to the AEther gives my opponents the first crack at getting cool stuff, and can easily be destroyed/exiled before the order gets back around to me. Timesifter, on the other hand... How did I miss this card during construction?! Holy fuck, that's a strong ability for this deck.

@BlackyMTG: All of those suggestions are great! I can see Teferi's Protection being hilarious cast in response to Aminatou's ult. I hadn't added Yennett or Aminatou's Augury yet because they were spoiled just before the weekend, and I knew I would be too busy to remove cards to make room. xD But I made room now. Thanks for the recommendations!

@Asder: You're absolutely right, and I actually own a copy of him, too! He's in my Ertai deck, but I've been meaning to deconstruct that anyways. I made room for him in here, removing the other Jace for him.

By the above I meant things like: Gate to the AEther, Pyxis of Pandemonium, Omen Machine, Indomitable Creativity, Warp World, Lurking Predators, Hypergenesis - All those are great for a high permanent, goodstuff type of deck. I love putting down a handful of permanents, and forcing my opponent to fizzle their best instants. In this kind of deck those parallel effects quickly become not-so-parallel... Although if your opponents also have a preference for permanents/creatures then it can spell trouble (my meta mostly does not).

Haha, YES give those blue nerds the wedgie they deserve! I'm also an expert at giving swirlies to neeerdds with their durdling-responsive, instant-heavy ways. With this type of deck random permanent forces or force cast enchantments can be hilarious. I'm a fan of Omen Machine, Wild Evocation, Gate to the AEther, I love watching some stupid counterspell get force-cast on upkeep.
