Awesome list!

I wanted to add Jester's Cap to the colourless list. It's ability to tutor three cards from your deck to exile is handy with Karn, the Great Creator's second ability.

Good point Vash13 I've played against combo decks and have lost to the same combo over and over again so I put several cards in the deck to deal with it. Not being in blue I had to get creative. I started using cards like Sadistic Sacrament, Praetor's Grasp, Slaughter Games and Jester's Cap type cards to deal with the combo before it happens. It worked great. It worked so good that they stopped playing combo against me lol. Playstyles and deck building can change the meta.

Academy Ruins and Jester's Cap allow you to wreck combo decks and remove any annoying Eldrazi Titans that might ruin your mill plans

Definitely remove Jester's Cap . If you want a card like that, then go with Sadistic Sacrament . It's much cheaper in the Mana cost so much better in the early game, and it has the potential to completely end someone in the late game.

Oh and one last one, I guess-

Remove Jester's Cap , and definitely replace Relic of Progenitus with Dimir-doppleganger and Bojuka Bog .

Honestly, any of the enters tapped mana rocks are better off replaced with 3cmc ones like Darksteel Ingot or Manalith . Sol Ring and Arcane Signet are ones to try to add too.

Good walls to consider are Guardians of Meletis - low cmc, colorless, and 6 toughness - Fog Bank , and Mnemonic Wall to get your Traumatize or Mindgrind back. It’s expensive at 5cmc for only 4 toughness, but I feel it’s worth it to get a sorcery back

Thanks for great advice, alechodgin23! I'll look into these ASAP. My thought for Jester's Cap is to look for cards that manipulate the graveyard. Things that allow a player to shuffle their graveyard back into their library, etc. I'm also running Scavenger Grounds and Relic of Progenitus for "emergencies.."
