Call the bloodline is terrible. That card looks incredible on paper but in practice it's too slow and accomplishes too little. Are there any more duals you can add? In my test hands of this I found myself starved for red. Is Geier Reach Sanitarium still standard?

This is a nice build but you simply HAVE to put in more non-basic lands! Lol. But seriously, things like Lonely Sandbar, Halimar Depths, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Tectonic Edge, Ash Barrens, Sea Gate Wreckage (just in case), Geier Reach Sanitarium, Arcane Lighthouse, Buried Ruin, Academy Ruins, Faerie Conclave, Tolaria West, Myriad Landscape, Wasteland, Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Remote Isle, to name a few...

@Argeaux: I can actually beat the more traditional Gearhulk lists about 3-4/5 times... Now that I know what to watch out for. They can't deal with a resolved Drake Haven, its the more budgety/janky ones that run Fevered Visions that I'm having trouble with. I've been trying to improve my non-creature based matchups but this list is tuned to destroy creature based strategies.

I've been considering go up to a playset of Censor, but I'm still not 100% sold yet... I'm going to test with 4 Censors and 2 Hieroglyphic Illuminations

@Eredes: You recommended Geier Reach Sanitarium a while back, I've been testing with it and it is amazing. Thanks so much for a great suggestion, 4 mana to be able to cycle any card in my hand and make a drake is so good. Its a little bit durdley, but its added so much staying power.

Lost Legacy has been helping a lot against Fevered Visions and the like. I haven't been seeing many Zombies, so I'm going to keep By Force as the dominant hate card over Scarab Feast. And the extra mana saved really does matter a lot to this deck at all stages of the game.

Evolving Wilds and Aether Hubs are treated as 3 color lands for my fixing counts so I find them pretty helpful.

Geier Reach Sanitarium is definitely interesting... I may have to do some testing with one or two copies of it... I think the first replacement would be a Canyon Slough but if I go with 2 I'm not sure what the second one would be...

Despite all the discard effects I still wouldn't feel comfortable running a 3rd Fiery Temper without something more like the Sanitarium to be able to reliably get it off at instant speed. I've had to hard cast it too many times for me to run 3 atm.

I think I'm leaning towards Lay Bare the Heart currently but its definitely a tough call since Faith of the Devoted is also really good against durdley control decks.

Would you consider adding one Geier Reach Sanitarium and if so, what would you cut? Other than a basic, Aether Hub seems the next best card to switch out.

Do you find the one Evolving Wilds to be helpful or would another slow land be better?

With all the discard would you run a third Fiery Temper?

Lay Bare the Heart or Faith of the Devoted in sideboard? I see the need for extra effects against Lost Legacy, however Lay Bare turn two can discard a Legacy on the play or draw.

Very nice deck, +1 from me.

Evolving Wilds should only be used in 3+ color decks or landfall-esque decks. You also have no reason the include Geier Reach Sanitarium why would you spend 3 mana to help your opponent? it also doesn't provide any manafixing so it could often be a dead land. Instead of anticipate why not use Glimmer of Genius with Harnessed Lightning. Check out what I did with my deck: How to win Game Day 101
