Really like the sage and not forgotten in the deck. Have you thought about switching gisela with something that's harder to kill like AEtherling or Glyph Keeper

Glyph Keeper is a really good flier. So are the energy whales, their names escape me at the moment. Come down on some creatures and get yourself some removal, most of your commons aren't that great. Replace them with things like Cast Out Impeccable Timing Essence Scatter Ixalan's Binding and even Unsummon good luck!

I like your take on it. It looks fun and a lot of people will be surprised to see the master come down. I think you could tweak it some to have an entirely different win con game 2. If you drop most of the pieces for your gameplan (13 cards) you could easily transition into an embalm deck, using things like Glyph Keeper that the opponent wont expect. In decks like this that are centered around a single idea, I have found that switching the way the deck wins to be really effective.

Yeah, Glyph Keeper might be a solid choice to top out the mana curve. I'll give that a shot and see how well it works.

I'm less keen on Pull from Tomorrow, though. Instant speed is nice, but it needs 5 total mana dumped into it to be better than Chart a Course. I think I'd prefer Hieroglyphic Illumination, since it's just two cards at instant speed that you can cycle if you get it early.

Looks fun. Glyph Keeper would be nice in here.

Obviously The Scarab God would be good in here, or anything dimir. However, if you dont want to include it, Glyph Keeper brings a lot of value to the table. As far as sideboard, Negate Duress against control, Yahenni's Expertise against tokens, Sentinel Totem against graveyard strategies, and finally Essence Scatter or Essence Extraction against other aggro.

So this is both a decent start and has a long way to go. While I don't have many specific card cuts to recommend to you, I can point you in a general direction for you to go, as well as a bunch of cards that might help you...

Hopefully some amount of this will help! You're allready at the deck being only $90 so you're pretty close! Good luck!

Hyperalgialysis on Budget Approach of the Cats

Hour of Revelation is cheap and really good board wipe if you drop your own enchantments. You can replace them with cheap counter magic like Negate and Cancel or depending on what it is Malfunction functions similarly. Cloudblazer gets hit by the second half of Dusk / Dawn and is solid card draw with a little lifelink. A good sideboard card is Glyph Keeper since it has recursion, a relevant ability, and evasion. In the same line of thought against aggro on a budget Impeccable Timing and Unsummon can save you a ton of headaches.
