NicoliBolas have you thought about playing red as well giving access to Madcap Experiment?

OmegaZefram on Greatness at Any Cost

I would run 2 Platinum Emperion. If you only run 1, and you end up drawing it, you just made 3 of your cards into dead cards. And if you end up with 2 Platinums, it miiiight make sense to run 4 Madcap Experiment, that way you have a reasonable chance of hitting the combo a second time when Platinum gets Path to Exiled

BUT if you do that, you end up with fewer low CMC cards which could be spent on removal etc. Something to consider.

For that type of deck, I think you need to separate the deck into themes. For example:

Well i am a cheapskate. At least when it comes to paper magic. And since i managed to create a properly viable mono red homebrew, i have very hard time to convince myself to put much effort into my builds that require those pricy multicolored fetch & shock manabases - stuff like ~70$ Scalding Tarns.

My pickle is that i have this very great brew centered around Cheating into play platinum angel and protecting it - but its UR, to have access to Madcap Experiment & Glorious End

Well i don't wanna spend a fortune on the mana base.

Shape Anew & Polymorph both seem to be viable alternatives for one of the key red cards.

Which one do you think is the more viable choice for the deck?

Both Seedborn Muse and Chromatic Lantern are slow in a Thrasios, Triton Hero and Tymna the Weaver deck that is trying to go Flash + Protean Hulk turn 1-3 and win on the spot.

Also, budget players often cannot afford them, some decks like Oath of Druids combo can't run any creatures, some decks like Madcap Experiment can't run any non Platinum Emperion artifacts in the deck, some decks are multicolor, but are creature-based stax decks that hate on artifacts with Stony Silence/Null Rod effects.

I like this deck overall. I think it needs some maindeck Blood Moon in this build. Also since you have Faithless Looting and Serum Visions the Madcap Experiment + Platinum Emperion combo would be good in here. You can use the looting and scrying to dig away the Emperion or extra copies of Madcap or get to it faster. I've seen other UR lists trying it here and there. You're already free of artifacts except for the Dragon's Claw on the side, which could easily be something else since the Emperion combo stops burn anyways.

Figuring out my win condition has been the hard part. For aggro I think I'm better off with Fecundity in most builds, and control is often hampered by only using the top card of the deck. Next build out will probably be using the Madcap Experiment into Platinum Emperion win condition. I think I'll also be dropping the Exploration theme to just run Knight of the Reliquary for land filtering and on-demand shuffles.

Madcap Experiment isn't gonna work too well with your copy of Wurmcoil Engine

Just sayin'
