Illusionist's Stratagem Discussion

Another thing to note about flicker cards. You can use them to reuse helpful ETB. Your list has a few good ones Armorcraft, deepglow, witness, ridgescale, or even flickering something that hit the battlefield before your Master Biomancer landed. Illusionist's Stratagem, Ghostly Flicker, Displace.

So, I'm a huge flicker/ETB fan. I like what you have started here. I personally really like Ghostly Flicker or Illusionist's Stratagem because of how well they combo with cards like Archaeomancer, Mnemonic Wall, or Possessed Skaab; generating a nice mana limited loop of flickers. Also, Sudden Disappearance would be hilarious after pulling an ultimate from your commander.

Intuition is incredibly versatile, and it may be worth it off of that alone. I'll do some thinking on potential piles and whether or not it's worth it. I had it in an earlier version of the deck and took it out for lack of good piles, but the deck was a lot less streamlined back then so it's probably worth another look.
The best winning pile I'm thinking of right now is something like Snapcaster Mage, Illusionist's Stratagem, and Ghostly Flicker, which, assuming you can make 10 mana, means they'll always give you Ghostly Flicker unless they have grave hate for Snapcaster Mage.

If you're concerned about how it works, I'd be happy to playtest against it on untap.in!

The section on mana ramp is spot on. I would add a not about the new Mox Amber but it isn't as good as other options. Both Vessel of Endless Rest and Commander's Sphere are searchable with Trophy Mage which can be an extra point in their favor.
Under card draw you have Induced Amnesia twice.
Cloudform and Lightform I can never sing the prais to highly on these in Brago. Manifesting the top of the library then returning it face up later if it's a permanent is amazing value. Of the two Cloudform is better but they are both good.
Champion of Wits is a great way to cycle through your deck and can come back as a 4/4 token if it is in the grave.
Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign can make sphinx tribal work.
Fall of the Thran is the best Armageddon we have ever had in my mind. Every turn we can destroy all lands and during ours we get two back. I might change my mind after more testing but it has helped me win every fnm I took it too since it's release.
