Mulldrifter could be fun in this deck.

The win condition looks like Pyrite Spellbomb with Academy Ruins recursion. I also see Ipnu Rivulet , which could be a mill win. The rest of the deck is defense ( Bottled Cloister with Ensnaring Bridge ), prevention ( Sorcerous Spyglass and Witchbane Orb , among others), and assorted other control and search effects. It's functionally similar to Lantern Control in that it's an artifact-heavy control deck, but the two decks have significant differences in how they pursue the lock. I'm not going to try to evaluate which one's better, but hopefully this helps with understanding the structure.
(Incidentally, and this is me nitpicking, I wouldn't call it a four-color deck in the title. Two of the colors are sideboard-only, and there are just six different colored cards. It's an artifact deck that uses some color.)

Hey Randomsome1 Thanks for the advice. I definitely think I will cut at least one land 39 does seem to be a bit much. I like Scavenger Grounds 1. the sacrifice effect, sure it hits my yard too but odds are mine will be hit every once in a while and this lets me hit back to the whole table. 2. it is a desert which has synergies with Ipnu Rivulet .
I'd love to put the Theros lands in but unforutunatly I didn't play that much in that block so I don't have as many of those lying around, unlike the Kaladesh ones. I know they aren't ideal and they will definitely get replaced at some point.
Plaguecrafter my thoughts exactly, but I am currently using my playset of them in my standard deck, it will definitely take that place though.
Thank you again!

I added an additional 3 lands that allow me to add colorless or blue mana, with an added ability to sacrifice the card and have the opponent discard 4 cards.Ipnu Rivulet In addition to this, I also added a few cards that will allow me to have better card draw including Dream Fracture , Visions of Beyond. Still a work in progress. Let me know how this could be made better. Can you explain to me more as to how Day's Undoing works? If the point of a mill deck is to remove all of their cards from their library, how does it help me to allow them to shuffle the cards that they've discarded back into their hand? Wouldn't I be starting from scratch? I know that there are ways to exile cards in your opponents graveyards, but I don't currently have any in this deck. What am I missing?

Muldrotha only lets you play a single creature from the gy each turn (and vivien but eh). This deck does not support the City's Blessing very well. What was your plan there, sticking 6 lands and 3 other creatures? Not really reliable. If you want to abuse Muldrotha you can play a revolt package and run stuff like Renegade Map, Evolving Wilds, Ipnu Rivulet and Unbridled Growth to get insane card advantage lategame. But at that point, why not just slam Carnage Tyrant and win? Seems sketchy imo

Hey been doing a lot of reading on these cards and am understanding the deck and its synergies a lot better. Now that I'm looking to the land base however I'm a bit confused again.
I understand that Desert of the Mindful is fuel for Ipnu Rivulet, but why choose Desert of the Mindful over any desert that doesn't enter the battlefield tapped? There are already 4 other lands that come in tapped with Memorial to Genius, and it seems like having your mana drops interrupted anywhere from turn 2-5 really hurts. Do you notice the coming in tapped hurting your game much?
Still playing a modified version in MTG Arena, most likely going to buy this as a physical deck for FNM. :)

This might be going a little deep, but maybe you could try playing 2-3 Ipnu Rivulet in the mana base? I've seen standard UW Approach lists use it to mill themselves after they cast their first Approach of the Second Sun to get closer to the one they tucked in their library.
