Halimar Depths Discussion

Here's how I would start on a midrange blue deck with focus on your favourite sphinx. I tried not to bring any cards that only allow for looking at the topcard, and apart from that just quality blue dudes. Plan for the deck is to stay alive (and it might need more and better stay-alive cards) until some kind of card machine starts rolling - either Magus of the Future og sphinx + top-deck-spying.
Creatures - 18
Spells - 20
Lands - 22

What could be removed? There is a lot of decks and players who can win faster, make tokens or have faster temp than you.
For example, i win all players with combo in my deck Disciple of Deceit - Combos PDH at turn 5. Peregrine Drake + Ghostly Flicker + Archeomancer is a thing many blue decks win with. You should able to stop this combo, by killing creatures for example.
Ascended Lawmage would have many auras like Cho-Manno's Blessing that provide indestructible blocker to your knight. Add some artifact or enchantment removals.
And of cource, one Pestilence will be headache for the rest of the game for you once it entered battlefield.
About Karoo lands - you are wrong.
They are not "same as taplands". They provide card-advantage, and you have additional land in hand. Its like if tapland has ability "enters tapped, then search land and put in hand".

Loreshadow: You have some very good points, I hadn't thought of using Quicken, or the interaction with Engulf the Shore. Although, it seems a little redundant to use Engulf the Shore to flip Thing in the Ice Flip, because you're then returning your opponents creatures twice. I'll have to test it out.
In regards to the cheap counterspells and such, that is an interesting approach. I've built this deck to be more mid-range control but I could definitely try flipping Thing in the Ice Flip quicker and seeing if that can close games faster. I would just need to make sure that I can protect the thing, as it is vulnerable to most removal.
I have a playset of Halimar Depths, but I have never even considered using it with Deprive to generate extra value. Being able to essentially scry 3 multiple times with one land is amazing value! Again, I'm going to have to do some playtesting.
Thanks for your suggestions!

Lands to add when using Deprive:

Lantern of Insight empowers the other player's draw cards and discard to graveyard strategies.
A few key lands could help. If you use Ensoul Artifact, then Darksteel Citadel can obviously be the land of choice. Zhalfirin Void can help you Scry more safely than Halimar Depths. Index and Sage of Epityr are two cheap Scry cards for setting up your next 5 draws. The Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx land is your devotion land.

Spreading Seas is easy enough to mainboad... possibly just replace Augury Owl...Despite the crazy amount of scry i am hesitant to put in any ETB tapped lands.... when i first started building decks i thought things like Halimar Depths and scry lands like Temple of Epiphany were the best things ever until i realized i was actually losing games from casting that much slower... but i think your right that a single copy of Halimar Depths wouldnt be back breaking and offset replacing Augury Owl with Spreading Seas.

As such, Crown of Convergence doesn't need you to add in more colors. You have a bunch of scry effects, so determining what is on top of your library shouldn't be much of a problem. A couple more creatures to just give you more of a value-game (and less synergy with relatively weak scryers): Master of Waves and Grand Architect.
Oh, and you should move Spreading Seas to mainboard. It replaces itself anyway, and is good against all kinds of tron and 3-color decks, as well as random man-lands. Speaking of man-lands: How about playing Faerie Conclave? Just a single copy (since etb-tapped is a problem if there's too much of it)... And Halimar Depths could be a pretty decent utility card with Conundrum Sphinx.

Mono Blue Affinity with Ninja's?
I'll build up a budget decklist for the deck and post it here.
