Ideas Unbound Discussion

I think you can get away with less lands, as you only really need one to start the combo.

I used to play the following cards in my weirdstorm deck:Visions of Beyond fills your hand, Peek to look out for counters/removal, Ideas Unbound reads draw three for UU during combo turn, Thought Scour mainly to enable visions, Kiln Fiend as a backup

Just some thoughts, good luck

the way you fill up your yard why not use Visions of Beyond instead of Ideas Unbound?

If you had room for basic lands you could easily run the Scroll Rack + Land Tax card engine. Land Tax gives you three basics, scroll rack swaps those cards along with any other trash cards you don't like in your hand for new cards, and then Land Tax shuffles your library on your next turn so not only will you not draw into what you tucked away, but the process always repeats giving you the equivalent of an Ancestral Recall on all your turns.

There's also Bloodghast + Skullclamp. The fact you're running all 10 fetchlands means to some certainty you'll get two landfall triggers per turn or drawing 4 cards for 2 mana if you have skullclamp.

Honestly at this point you got your deck feels like its held down so tightly it almost looks impossible to suggest any ways in which to make improvements.

I noticed you're running Wheel of Fortune. I don't know if you've considered Reforge the Soul some time long ago, but considering you're running Vampiric Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Lim-Dul's Vault, and Imperial Seal with can-trips galore it would practically be Wheel of Fortune for 1 less or at the same cost but at instant speed given it miracle cost. Sure it slightly impacts Dark Confidant and ad nauseum but only by 2 damage more on the off-chance it gets top-decked in a 99-card deck.

Other spells I could probably throw at the wall to see what sticks would be, Fragmentize, Argivian Find, Abolish, Ideas Unbound, Lightning Axe, Day's Undoing, Long-Term Plans, Defense Grid, Swerve, Darkblast, (Specifically for dredging dead cards with Sensei's Top.) Painful Truths, Abrade, Shattering Spree, Ensnaring Bridge, Standstill, Surgical Extraction, Snuff Out, Vendetta, Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Innocent Blood, Esper Charm, Kolaghan's Command, Reanimate, Maze of Ith, Arcane Denial, Apostle's Blessing, Shadow of Doubt, Impulse.

Sorry if none of that ended up being helpful to you. I tried covering a wide range of spells that would vary in their ability depending on how your meta is.

I'm sure you're already aware of Wheel of Fortune, but that's the one big one I'm seeing that could go in.

These ones are good not just for draw triggers, but for filtering to what's needed at the time.

Breakthrough, Attunement, Ideas Unbound, Frantic Search (free!), Drastic Revelation

I can see you're focused on making -everyone- draw. You have a lot of high-powered cards here, but some lower costed filters like these can push out damage and improve your position. You'll likely be drawing a lot anyway, so the discard portion of my suggestions isn't much of a drawback.

I've worked with Nekusar builds before, and while they are awesome on paper, giving your opponents so much draw power can be detrimental.

Your Hedron Crabs would really like some fetchlands (returning Oboro, Palace in the Clouds to hand isn't really the samme - only one trigger per turn, and you set your own mana back). They would also like to be a full set, I think .

Best blue library manipulation in modern: Serum Visions. It's not quite at the same level as Ponder and Preordain. Maybe Ideas Unbound could go well enough with your Sphinx's Tutelage...

Trtl on well thats a weird deck

Slip Through Space instead of Aphotic Wisps in your sideboard and remove one of Ideas Unbound for a fourth Faithless Looting. Otherwise you should be pretty good.

So far, the main piles i have are Top- Thought Scour, Laboratory Maniac, Darkblast, Unearth, Pick a card -Bottom with 2 Draw cards in hand or 1 with Top on the field all you would need is UBB or UUBB(or Pact) to be safer.

If I were to swap in Deep Analysis, the pile would look more like Top- Thought Scour, Laboratory Maniac, Deep Analysis, Unearth, Pick a card -Bottom, With Gitaxian Probe would cost 1UUB 5hp, not the best pile but an option.

And for Ideas Unbound, I personally feel that going Lotus Petal over Top is the best choice to use, Petal in the pile itself(Though Lion's Eye Diamond is best), along side LED is really the only good way to just hard cast Lab Man, Top- Ideas Unbound, Lotus Petal, Gitaxian Probe, Laboratory Maniac, Gitaxian Probe -Bottom, UUU and 4HP gets you there, less HP if depending on lands or what you have on field and hand. What you could also do is add in a single Chromatic Sphere to replace one of the 5 to have a safer win through priority.

Sorry this is the best I could manage, apart from the various possibilities of what is in hand and on the field, and Doom piles are still a work in progress for me, its getting "late" for me and piles are hard on a major budget XD (Formatting posts are hard)

Thank you, I am very new to legacy only playing my friends Death & Taxes deck and very much enjoy Doomsday as a card. In regards to Sunken Hollow over Underground River, I do see where you are going with that, especially if the game goes longer than I would like it to go. I have been looking around at other decks and piles and have seen uses of Lotus Petal or Chromatic Sphere to keep hold of priority, as well as using Ideas Unbound but unsure if that is only good in using with Lion's Eye Diamond piles. Deep Analysis is another one I thought about using throwing it into my grave shouldn't be that hard using Mental Note though Thought Scour should be a "better choice" being slightly more flexible.
