Mission Briefing

Instant

Surveil 2, then choose an instant or sorcery card in your graveyard. You may cast this card this turn. If that card would be put into your graveyard this turn, exile it instead. (To surveil 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest on top of your library in any order.)

You don't really include a win condition other than 3 copies of a hard to cast Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger . I would suggest looking into cards like Underworld Dreams , Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted , or Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage as a way to deal damage to your opponent in this discard theme.

Running around 10-12 instances of Surveil is probably going to be consistent enough to trigger Disinformation Campaign . If going this route, I'd cut your copies of Agonizing Remorse and even Mission Briefing to include more removal/threats. You're pretty clogged up in the 2/3 CMC slots, and extending your curve into 4/5 range would be beneficial to make your later stages of the game more impactful. Cards like Enter the God-Eternals , Nightveil Predator , and Lochmere Serpent are good budget options. Not sure if the splash for Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is even needed, seeing as it is kinda the black sheep in this deck as is.

After your opponent has no cards in hand, your discard effects end up being useless spells. Whether it is non-creatures like Underworld Dreams , Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted , and Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage , or creatures like Nightveil Predator , and Lochmere Serpent , making sure you have more threats to actually win the game is going to be crucial.

Hope this helps!

Looks like a fun deck to play. I like a lot of the spells you run. If I might offer some suggestions, I think something like Eternal Witness would help you if something gets destroyed or you need an important spell to recast from your graveyard. Using that same line of thinking, Mission Briefing is like a budget Snapcaster Mage. It can let you replay an important spell from the graveyard. Shielding Plax is a good protection enchantment and I think it works well here because it replaces itself by drawing a card. Good luck with your deck!!

Mission Briefing to reuse your spells, Narcomoeba to get more value out of Surveil.

Mission Briefing , Twincast could be a good budget option to replace Snapcaster Mage

In Pioneer the strongest single spell for milling is probably Breaking / Entering I'd also suggest Mission Briefing so you can recast your spells.

Magnanimous on Four Color Turbo Fog - Pioneer

Cuts:

First, I don't like your win conditions. Fevered Visions is just awful against any sort of aggressive deck that can dump its hand quickly or decks with discard like Collective Brutality . Fateful Showdown is a very slow removal/burn spell that I don't think your opponent will care about often enough. Both suffer from being too slow and not dealing nearly enough damage (I imagine Fevered Visions does <2 a turn and Fateful Showdown does around 4). Approach of the Second Sun is interesting, but you need a backup win-con. I'd suggest Sphinx's Tutelage as it has inevitability and fog decks typically draw a ton of cards.

You should consider whether or not you want these sweepers: Anger of the Gods , Sweltering Suns , and Supreme Verdict instead of a few fogs and whether you want targeted removal. If you don't want either I'd recommend getting rid of red, white, or both as they don't provide much value to you outside of those two categories (you'd need to also decide whether 3 Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is worth the splash).

Commit / Memory is also slow and I recommend cutting it.

Additions/Cards to consider:

Dictate of Kruphix , Mission Briefing , Treasure Cruise , Arboreal Grazer (works well with card draw and lots of lands, also has pretty high toughness), Mystic Sanctuary , Spell Pierce , Opt , AEtherize or Settle the Wreckage (instant-speed wrath effects and cards that punish attacking into open mana), Sphinx's Tutelage .

Manic Scribe and Mission Briefing look like good cards for this deck. Mission Briefing over Flood of Recollection , I think. Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver also looks like a solid addition to the deck, but that would also require adding some black mana. However, 4x Drowned Catacomb and 4x Watery Grave should be enough. Mystic Sanctuary also looks like a nice addition, maybe 2x or 3x.

Just some thoughts-- hope these help!
