I chose not to include Blossoming Defense because I think I have more than enough pump spells, so I chose to add Spell Pierce instead, which I think is better at dealing with removal, especially earlier on. On another note, should I replace the Ornithopters with Memnites? I grabbed the thopters simply because they have flying so when they get Ensouled, they become 5/5s with flying, but considering I’m running Aethersphere Harvester (as a secondary win condition,) Memnites could be better as 0 mana 1/1s, but what do you think?

A)Play a artifact creature.
B)Sac it to find Paradox Engine.
C)Play second artifact creature to untap Arcum.
D)Sacrifice it to find Citanul Flute.
F)Use Flute to find zero drop creatures like Memnite for lots of free Arcum taps.
H) finally go get Walking Ballista play it for a stupid amount and kill the table by removing the 1/1 counters
I run 0 to 2 cmc creatures.

Gattison Wow, I blew it on Memnite, thought it seemed too good to be true. I do have most of the cards you suggested. Viridian Longbow in particular seems perfect. I can almost certainly replace Welding Jar with those. Fixing up the mana base seems like a wise idea, also. Thanks for checking this deck out!

I will concede that lightning bolt will kill humans if no Thalia's Lieutenant is afoot.
However after various humans the following are the most played creatures in modern, in this order: Scavenging Ooze, Tarmogoyf, Birds of Paradise, Tireless Tracker, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Gurmag Angler, Thought-Knot Seer, Bloodghast, Hollow One, Reality Smasher, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Arcbound Ravager, Etched Champion, Flamewake Phoenix, Ornithopter, Signal Pest, Vault Skirge, Memnite, Steel Overseer, Courser of Kruphix, Goblin Guide, Matter Reshaper, Wurmcoil Engine, Master of Etherium...etc.
So out of those 24 creatures it can kill, like what? 9 of them? and a not insignificant amount of these cards are just enablers like Birds of Paradise, Goblin Guide, or various cheapo artifacts - yeah its great if you can remove them before the opponent is established.
But there is one thing that is even better, if the same spell you could use to kill these enablers would also hit the power cards they let the opponent play. Since in that case, the card actually does something if you topdeck it later.
Oh yeah it can go to face, tell that to Wurmcoil Engine...
Wouldn't Path to Exile do the job better? ...i mean do the job at all. If it can't remove relevant creatures its not a removal spell - if its very conditional its a bad removal spell.

SynergyBuild, thanks for the thoughtful recommendations! There's no denying that the Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combo is useful, and would fit nicely into this deck, but I already have it in another one of my more competitive decks. I wanted this one to be pretty casual for the most part, which is also why I avoided putting too many tutoring cards in there.
As for the 0-drops such as Memnite, Shield Sphere, Ornithopter, etc.: I'd rather focus on creatures that can generate tokens like Abhorrent Overlord, Sifter of Skulls, and Sengir Autocrat for the sac bait. Since CMC isn't an issue for Whisper, Blood Liturgist's ability, there'd be no point to include the 0-drops that would only be worth a single sacrifice, and not necessarily be worth bringing back with Whisper, Blood Liturgist to sacrifice again.
I do think that most of the cards you suggested be cut still have pretty valid reasons to be present in the deck. Most of those cards are either for spot removal Malicious Affliction, control Grave Pact, ETB/upon death triggers Kokusho, the Evening Star, discard effects Call the Bloodline, or token generation Noosegraf Mob. I mean, sure, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger doesn't really fit in the deck, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to potentially cheat out an Eldrazi titan on like, turn 4.
I could probably drop Ancient Craving for one of the more efficient cards like Night's Whisper though. I really like Corpse Connoisseur too. Diabolic Intent fits the theme of the deck, so I might swap that in for one of the other tutoring cards. Withering Boon seems pretty great too. Counterspells in black are hilarious, and often unexpected. Toxic Deluge could very well end up replacing Damnation, because you're right, it is pretty good. Just not sure if paying that much life is always worth the effect.
Thanks again for all the great suggestions! I've definitely still got some work to do on this deck.

I would look into some card draw, since you are running low CMC cards such as Signal Pest, Springleaf Drum, Ornithopter, Memnite, and Mox Opal. That's twenty cards at CMC 1 or lower, plus twenty free lands...Maybe Expose Evil (clues are artifacts, so any investigate cards would work), Pirate's Pillage, Frantic Salvage, or Origin Spellbomb.Serum Tank would run well, as would Tamiyo's Journal or Trading Post.You could also run Nahiri, the Harbinger for a control/search element.

You can get this combo to blow up T4. You can actually do it T3 with Simian Spirit Guide but you need a clever way to get damage out. It's easiest on T4. One way to do T3 is discard a second Guide for a Lightning Bolt. You can also cast Memnite and swing for 1 if they can't block it. There's a few other ways but now you're getting into tricks that require a lot of effort. It's simply easiest on T4.
And yeah, there's people that'll tell you this combo "doesn't work" because of removal on Guildmage. Don't listen to them. Literally all decks can be stopped by removal.
