View from Above fits in perfectly, definitely going to find a place. the only reason I dismissed Battlefield Thaumaturge is because it would only work with Hidden Strings. with it being a card I want to drop early and using its ability to untap the mana spent on it i decided against it.

maybe there is 2 or 3 drop instants and sorcery's that would fit in this deck and make Battlefield Thaumaturge more viable

Have you considered Cipher's like Hands of Binding, Hidden Strings and Stolen Identity?

Hidden Strings seems like it would make a pretty great engine for the deck.

If you have ways of reliably getting access white mana, Gavony Township can quickly snowball your tokens out of control in a few turns, even faster if you got ways to untap permanents like Hidden Strings, throw Hardened Scales on top of that and you got yourself an avalanche. Though not as powerful - but in your colors - is the weaker version: Novijen, Heart of Progress

Also if you got any enchants that affect all of your creatures, Infiltrator's Magemark would effectively make all of them unblockable to non-defenders.

Remember to link cards using double brackets.

Starstorm (for reference)

Yes you can. Before the game moves on to any step or phase (excluding the untap step, which has no player gaining priority) it has to have a full round of priority passed with no action. Immediately after combat damage is dealt, there's a round of priority before moving to the end of combat step (or second combat damage step if first/double strike is involved).

Keep in mind, however, that you still will have to obey timing restrictions. If your plan was to use a big Sorcery, then you'd be out of luck because you can only cast those during your main phase with an empty stack.
