Invasive Surgery

Instant

Counter target sorcery spell.

Delirium — If there are four or more card types among cards in your graveyard, search the graveyard, hand and library of that spell's controller for any number of cards with the same name as that spell, exile those cards, then that player shuffles his or her library.

Invasive Surgery Discussion

In regards to some other of your recommended cards, Invasive Surgery would only really work if I can activate delirium, which is difficult for me. The deck runs primarily on instants and sorceries, and it is not likely that I will often get 2 other card types in the graveyard, let alone have them stay there due to shuffling effects. I will probably replace the field of ruins with more ghost quarters, as you recommend. Blessed Reincarnation gives the opponent another card, which could be better than their original one. Overall, though, my deck takes a different approach then your suggestions. They could create some sort of green blue shuffling deck, but, as I said above, I find my UB version more efficient.

It's conditional and would need some setup but Invasive Surgery would make sense in your sideboard, particularly against Faithless Looting decks. Cranial Archive or Quest for Ancient Secrets might also work. Field of Ruin is unconditional, booth players must shuffle, Ghost Quarter lets your opponent decide. Stream of Consciousness does what you want, but if you were willing to splash green Memory's Journey is better and you have access to Riftsweeper and Unravel the Aether, the last is worth considering since you don't have enchantment/artifact removal.

Isochron Scepter, might be useful, also Boomerang and Eye of Nowhere can bounce lands, or anything else which is a good stalling tactic. Last thought Blessed Reincarnation is probably better than Commit / Memory, and hits twice. Hope this helps, have fun brewing your deck.

Out Telling Time, Invasive Surgery, Memory Lapse

Inserting the most effective PlanesWalker in EDH imo. He never be a dead draw. At worst, he is 3cmc looting effect/steal target sol ring. If he survive one turn, then enjoy !

It's definitely competitive-viable but like any Control deck, it can be draw dependent. The only changes I would consider are A) Running Snapcaster Mage, personal preference but would fit quite well. B) 1-2 Search for Azcanta  Flip would be nice. and C) Invasive Surgery on the SB is mainly for Scapeshift and Thoughtseize. It could easily be something else.

Hyperalgialysis on Is this a decent commander?

Cyclonic Rift Sphinx's Revelation are very strong. The enchantments, and then you can load up on budget board wipes. Hour of Revelation Planar Cleansing River's Rebuke are all cheap. Get some good utility spells. Ojutai's Command Azorius Charm Render Silent Lavinia of the Tenth Collective Effort Blessed Alliance. Dont skimp on counterspells, run like 10-12, a lot of 1 mana ones are good in commander like Outwit Annul Invasive Surgery Dispel Turn Aside and they are all pretty cheap.
