Ideas Unbound is effectively a "draw 3" when you use it on the turn you're comboing off.

I know some people have been playing around with Ideas Unbound but that double blue might prove to be a bit tough to get on T2.

For Modern discard options, red has access to Faithless Looting , Cathartic Reunion , and Burning Inquiry , all of which come down quick and can get cards into both your hand and graveyard; Blue has Discovery / Dispersal and Ideas Unbound , as well as Chart a Course , which you already have in the list and is nice because you can pick if you want to discard with it or not.

Looking at the Ingenious Infiltrator vs. Ninja of the Deep Hours , she's a hard call -- Infiltrator is finally giving the tribe a much needed payoff, but the double mana symbols make it less reliable to cast on turn 2 than Deep Hours, so it's up to how you feel about the situation. If you do decide to run the Infiltrator, you'll want to swap the Slither Blades out for Changeling Outcast s, as they are also unblockable and count as ninjas.

Mist-Syndicate plays nasty with Tetsuko, but that's probably its only draw right now. Maybe a Wingcrafter ? I'm not sure, I'm still theorycrafting on that one right now. :x

Counterspell is not modern legal. Use Muddle the Mixture instead, since it can help find all your combo pieces if you don't need it to counter spells.

Frantic Search is not legal either. Ideas Unbound might be an adequate substitute.

Okay, I've run a few sample games with your list and I'm unfortunately finding that it fizzles a ton. I think the main reason, awkwardly enough, is Serum Powder . While I know it's really good with the London Mulligan rule right now, it also really, really sucks to draw when you're trying to go off turn two. I think it literally lost me four or five of the seven games I played with it, because it interrupts the combo super hard. I also don't know how I feel about Temur Battle Rage . I feel like Grapeshot might just be better. Another solid card draw spell that I've found in my own testing is Ideas Unbound -it basically just reads "draw three cards", because it often wins you the game that turn. It's not too hard to cast, either, because Cerulean Wisps nets you mana each time.

Contingency Plan and Taigam's Scheming don't actually cantrip, but they can stack the deck very effectively. But, I think the closest you'll get to Faithless Looting is probably Ideas Unbound .

Against noncreature decks, maybe Alhammarret, High Arbiter would work.

yo TheMillKid thanks for your suggestions!

Rogue's Passage is a nice idea, and not so prone to be removed. Included! Key to the City is ok, i guess- it does a bit of everything. I shall consider it for later use but right now, i cant find a slot for it.The draw ability is a bit expensive and conditional... hmmm

As for Ideas Unbound , Concentrate , Harmonize im not convinced. I dont like the idea of sorcery speed card draw. So, it try to avoid that if possible- better to play it EOT. Tezzeret's Gambit is sorc speed too, but low cost and provides additional value through proliferate.

Breakthrough is nice because of the fact that it provides Draw trigger for really low mana cost. So i consider it after the next few games... very possible inclusion!

Careful Consideration is exactly what i need! Similar to Breakthrough and instant speed! Included!

Cephalid Coliseum well i need a copy of it! Nice! Will Include!

Compulsive Research is a bit tricky. I need early lands and run a bit few... ill keep it in mind!

Ordeal of Thassa multipurpose. Included!

Song of the Dryads reincluded. U convinced me. In Fact, i consider Imprisoned in the Moon too...

I think KayneMarco has a good point about cards like Rogue's Passage . Key to the City is another good option, since it's cheap, and actually can provide a bit of additional card advantage.

Some extra low-cost draw spells to pump Toothy could be Ideas Unbound , Concentrate , Harmonize , Ancestral Vision , Breakthrough (although this one has a big downside), Careful Consideration , Cephalid Coliseum , Compulsive Research , and Ordeal of Thassa . On a related note, Thassa, God of the Sea would be another good addition, smoothing your draws with scry while also providing another way to make Toothy unblockable.

I honestly believe Song of the Dryads is one of the most powerful removal spells around, because turning a commander into a Forest just invalidates them until the enchantment is destroyed (because their forest general isn't destroyed by cards like Wrath of God ).

Happy Brewing!
