Haze of Pollen Discussion

first of all, O O F.
As for feedback, I can see two or three routes you would go to improve this deck:
No. 1 - Azorious: From what I can see, your gameplan is to stall and play a land per turn until you can hardcast eldrazi. Maybe an alternative wincon in case of bridge or other shenanigans? I'm thinking walkers: Teferi, Hero of Dominaria sounds like a solid option. If you're worried about budget then might I suggest Jace Beleren? You're running Howling Mine effects anyway and his ultimate is fairly relevant. It also plays towards your Fog plan: if they're attacking jace they're not attacking you ¯_(ツ)_/¯. Maybe use him instead of the seige. I do realise that he has got double blue devotion, but there are a swathe of blue cards that function identically to fog, such as Cryptic Command and Downpour. Of course, balancing all these colours would lead to a much more expensive mana base, so mebbe u don't want to go heavy azorious if your staying budget...
No. 2 - Selnysia: Is there a reason you're not running green? White has only a limited selection of fogs that you've evidently exhausted if your running Safe Passage, so why not chuck in a Fog or Haze of Pollen or two. They also have passable howling mine effects, such as Rites of Flourishing... the secondary clause would make the games go much faster you've got to admit.
no. 3 - Bant: ¿Por qué no los dos?

Yes, it works very well against aggro and G Stompy. Hard control is the only real problem, let's see what happens after rotation, once Torrential Gearhulk is history the hard control builds suffer, Turbo fog won't work too once Haze of Pollen is gone,... onl problem is the man abase, Concealed Courtyard is 1 lvl above Forsaken Sanctuary, and i will miss my Renewed Faith, won 2x against Zombies creating a Blocker AND gaining life,...

Definitely go up to 2 or 3 Approach at least, and because of the fact that New Perspectives works so well with Cycling I'm assuming at least 15-20 of your cards can be Cycled(using Cast Out, Hieroglyphic Illumination, and the lands such as Irrigated Farmland, etc.)
The thing is, if you are running 4 each of Cast Out, Censor, and Hieroglyphic Illumination, and running 22 lands(taking 2 out for 2 more Approach) you have an almost guaranteed chance to get the lands to get a t6 New Perspectives. Running Curator of Mysteries and Compelling Argument also add more 1-mana Cycle effects, maybe using 1-2 Opt if you have space, Countervailing Winds because it's a decent counterspell, and depending on your colors using Archfiend of Ifnir, Shefet Monitor, and Haze of Pollen(as well as the Amonkhet Cycling duals) can give you an easier path to victory. On the side, Archfiend and Curator are alternate win cons as they are decent sized flyers for the mana.
On the side, I'd run 1-2 copies of Abandoned Sarcophagus as it can let you utilize cards like Cast Out and Haze of Pollen that you cycled earlier in the game to get another handle on the game. Also use that one card that cycles and gives you 2 life, that can help seal the deal against your opponent.
I personally might consider using the M19(if you're playing Standard with this deck, which I assume you are) card that mimics Sphinx's Tutelage. 1, maybe 2 copies add yet another win con that can easily crush your opponent with a New Perspectives on the field.

Haze of Pollen is better than Commencement of Festivities. I think you need some more main deck cards to improve your noncreature matchups like control and combo, it seems like a really bad matchup game 1. Silence is amazing on Isochron Scepter, and you could try out Mana Tithe too (likely not that great, but I like it and no one ever plays around it).
I don't really like Baird and Platinum Angel in your deck. Baird is redundant and costly, and without a way to cheat it out or tutor it Angel isn't worth it, especially since removal is gonna build up in your opponent's hand throughout the game. I also question the Birds of Paradises; you don't really need to ramp into things quickly since you have fogs. In their place something like Howling Mine to find more fogs and hit land drops would be better.
I suggest testing out the Silence/Scepter lock plan, it's pretty fun.

I would definitely up the amount of lands you have, 18 seems too low if you want to be able to drop Patient Rebuilding on 5. I would also cut the Wall of Mist and Homarid Explorer, as both are just very slow cards. I honestly think you could have more success by splashing green for fog effects like Root Snare and Haze of Pollen.

I made a Deck without Patient Rebuilding, but maybe you can play it in the deck =o
What i've done is that i'm using the Psychic Corrosion with card draws, but on your deck it's just a combo piece for the Patient Rebuilding and mills 2 cards per turn, what's not exactly what you want for .
For defense there are many useful cards. I've tried the Haze of Pollen, if you're playing against combat damage relied on decks it's very effective and if not you could cycle it and maybe get some value out of the Psychic Corrosion
If you have some card ideas let me know i'm building a mill deck too right now =D

I would suggest Haze of Pollen over Root Snare. Same effect, same cost but has cycling if you don't need a Fog.

This deck is plenty of fun, but I've noticed that stuff like Ixalan's binding or just fast aggro can screw this deck by quite a lot. Have you considered splashing green in the mana base for Naturalize and Haze of Pollen effects?
