Search your library for any three cards and reveal them. Target opponent chooses one. Put that card into your hand and the rest into your graveyard. Then shuffle your library.

drshakalu Sorry for the late response!
The Intuition piles look like either: Hermit Druid + Reanimate + Shallow Grave, or Force of Will + Pact of Negation + Mental Misstep. The deck runs a fair bit of redundancy so you can get whatever effect you want most of the time, be it removal, draw, recursion, etc.
I have indeed considered Recruiter of the Guard. IMO we run enough tutors already to get Hermit Druid with. I would much rather run Mystical Tutor and Enlightened Tutor as they're cheap and can be cast at instant speed. You can get any piece of removal, draw, recursion, or disruption you need with Mystical Tutor, and any rock or Lion's Eye Diamond with Enlightened Tutor if you're going for a hard cast Auriok Salvagers. Recruiter of the Guard costs three mana which doesn't sit well with the rest of the deck.
After some games a few weeks back I realised packing in some creature based reanimation could be good. At two mana, Apprentice Necromancer is very good but the need for haste bothers me.
Necropotence recently came out of the list for Ad Nauseam, which is much more powerful than Mystic Remora. Mystic Remora was cut in the early stages for Rhystic Study, which also consistently performed poorly.
In regards to Pithing Needle, if your meta requires you to run it, I would definitely take a dork out to run it. We're tight on slots currently, but you could also cut Pull from Eternity if you need the dorks in.
In regards to Praetor's Grasp, I haven't had to worry about that too much. It's recently shown itself a few times in my online meta, so I've been toying with finding a slot for the new Walking Ballista, which would give us an alternative wincon with whichever line we take.

would also recommend running a Homeward Path in case people steal your stuff from your graveyard.
I would also recommend adding in a few more board wipes, specifically Life's Finale.
If you need more suggestions, this is the deck that i made for the mimeoplasm

Awesome, thanks! Manbeast75
Whispers of the Muse is a great suggestion for Visions of Beyond, I've never really had a consistent connected Visions of Beyond. I may keep Plea for Power in temporarily, and remove Visions of Beyond for the Firemind's Foresight, see how my draw works. Plea for Power with Mizzix of the Izmagus is usually for a turn or 3 cards, pretty respectable conversions. Keeping Whispers of the Muse on the backburner, also allows me to draw my entire library in an Infinite scenario, very interesting. I think I need Whispers of the Muse because of the Isochron Scepter to have enough targets.
Mind's Desire has been reasonably good to me thus far, not sure it's necessary, I may have won without it, but it allowed me to play a Guttersnipe or a Sphinx-Bone Wand. It's definitely low on my priority scale, I just put it in over Ignite Memories to test it out.
I see how Sakashima the Impostor would be good, especially for a Blue Sun's Zenith or Stroke of Genius, not sure I can get the room, plus I find that Mizzix of the Izmagus is usually free casting Kicked Rite of Replication anyway, but I'll keep it in mind.
Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir is amazing, I have to get one of him when I'm at the store next.
Intuition is an interesting one, I have it in my maybeboard, Mystical Tutor, Merchant Scroll, Past in Flames or Mystic Retrieval means I get to play them all, regardless of which card an opponent puts in my hand. Mystical Tutor or Merchant Scroll can pull my Firemind's Foresight or Turnabout, or I can pull Personal Tutor for a Mizzix's Mastery.
I've been looking through your deck and clicking the guys, still going through it all.

Great trick with Oloro is Words of Worship - during your upkeep you can gain 5 life for each 2 mana you pay. His ability and the words trigger each other repeatedly. And then there's Aetherflux Reservoir...You better get some more tutors! Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Intuition, Transmute Artifact, Whir of Invention...

You are right. I was sequencing it in my head wrong. You can get one extra use out of the Reality Shift (or any spell for that matter) but then you are stuck looping the other two. Timetwister is necessary to actually win with the Reality Shift combo.
And one more question now that I thought of it. What do you normally tutor for with Intuition? I have never ran the card before and it seems like the type of card you need to set up so that there is no right answer for your opponent so I am guessing that Yawgmoth's Will should be one of the choices. Perhaps Regrowth and whatever other combo piece you needed.

Huh. I'll be damned. I fucked up, huh? Anyway, maybe Intuition instead of Beseech, and use it to grab three tutors, including Increasing Ambition, so if it doesn't go to hand, you're still good. That ought to do it. Also, Merciless Eviction might make a good panic button for this deck. Sorry if I'm saturating you with my input, I'm just so interested in this deck.

I would consider dropping Plea for Power for the foresight. Foresight grabs you the specific cards you need, while Power either gives you an extra turn if you're not in a position to be able to use it well, or a random 3 cards.
As for counters, I've found it more beneficial to be a little less control oriented, but combo oriented. Just enough disruption to be able to protect your combo, and unless a specific spell is actively going to kill you before you are able to win, I don't bother countering troublesome things.
I also would consider changing Visions of beyond to Whispers of the Muse. Drawing it later in the game typically nets you more cards than Visions, being able to repeatedly draw with extra mana.
I've never really found using Mind's Desire to be all that appealing, In my year+ playing with it, I haven't once gone for true chain storm, but combo for infinite spell casts on a combo.
Sakashima the Impostor is a piece of tech I've enjoyed having in Mizzix. Paying 4 to have 2 Mizzix in play, reducing your costs by 2x your experience.
I would change Future Sight with Melek. Melek has less color weight, and an additional ability that can be relevant. I've had to, multiple times, brainstorm and put turnabout on top in order to cast it copied, to have the mana necessary to start the reiterate loop.
Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir is a tank, basically saying that you can't be interrupted.
Intuition can be a pseudo Firemind's foresight for a combo. Past in Flames, Any Ritual, and mystical tutor. Tutor for Reiterate. Only grabbing tutor instead of reiterate to guarantee casting it from your hand to be able to buy it back. Most savvy players will catch you in that and grave reiterate to break your combo.

Yes. Assume you have no other cards in hand and battlefield has nothing then the Intuition targets will be those you mentioned, and yes it will take 9 mana to execute the combo that's why this deck needs a lot of mana rocks to pull combos out fast.
