Mystic Speculation Discussion

Adding the various blue spells with buyback to your arsenal can provide for almost unlimited potential win-cons as well, and you don't require infinite mana to do it, just the ability to produce at most 6 total mana via mana rocks, including at least , and you can cast Capsize, Whispers of the Muse or Mystic Speculation an infinite number of times with Paradox Engine in play. Add in Sentinel Tower and Aetherflux Reservoir, and you have multiple additional win-cons that are often just as easy, if not easier, to get to and/or easily solve the problem of your initially planned win-con getting blown up or denied. Capsize is also very helpful in eliminating hate bears and other board denial that may otherwise prevent you from comboing off. Hopefully my Arcum deck Dang Son! It's a Shiny Rube Goldberg Machine! can provide some additional inspiration, as there are some variations to it, with a focus on getting overall average CMC as low as possible to help maximize speed. Happy brewing.

Maybe a Sequestered Stash or two, to help find and recover your Helix?

Hey man, nice to see another Nin deck out there. My Nin deck is my favourite deck to date and I liked your additional win combo of the Elite Arcanist + Paradox Engine + Price of Progress.
I wanted to give you another option for infinite mana I threw in my deck that's super cheap: Paradox Engine + Mystic Speculation + 4+ mana from mana rocks/dorks. By casting Mystic with buyback repeatedly you can tap/untap all your rocks & dorks for infinite mana. Only requires you to add Mystic Speculation too, which is cheap & useful even if not comboing.
My deck for your info in case you wanted more ideas :)

I love this plan (tried the good old leveler + shared fate business when around Mirrodin) and like your deck. However how are you reactions of opponents when playing this deck? Do they respond well to Shared Fate?
Also @ Mystic Speculation when it's buyback is paid it will return to it's owners hand (even though the reminder text says "that player") that means that it might be a pretty good inclusion as you can play it as endless machine but your opp can only play it as a one off.

Alright so I'm going to list a bunch of cards to cut but before I do... Mizzix is a deck that you either want to combo out in, or burn people's faces into oblivion; you don't want to make a bunch of tokens and swing with them because if you get boardwiped you probably can't get those token producers back. Also 90% of this deck you should be able to reduce cost for, and if you can't that card better make one hell of an impact. That said here is my list of cuts for you.
- Blustersquall: Turnabout is just a better card than this, it also can be your win con with Reiterate and is just more flexible
- Commit//Memory: I tried running this but it just never seemed good. I don't want my hand anywhere but in my hand, and if I counter something I'd rather it be gone.
- Counterflux: You can't reduce cost. More importantly you have to have both your colors and that can be a struggle sometimes.
- Dragonshift: You should only have 2-3 creatures at most for the majority of the game.
- Fall of the titans: I ran this for awhile but it ended up being a dead card in my hand 70% of the time.
- Fateful Showdown: Again, in this deck you should want every card in your hand, because a good portion of this deck is holding up mana.
- Izzet Charm: Not enough value.
- Prophetic Bolt: I recently cut Prophetic Bolt and to be honest I haven't missed it at all, just doesn't have enough value.
- Spellbook: Run Thought Vessel and/or Reliquary Tower in its place, its just not enough value to take a card slot. Pro tip, Reliquary Tower should be in EVERY EDH deck, same thing with Sol Ring
- Ral Zarek: You can't reduce cost. I get wanting a walker in the deck because value every turn for free is great BUT in this deck it's not really value because cost reduction.
- Pore Over The Pages: Ugin's Insight is just better, but I'd consider Mystic Speculation instead; still card advantage but you can play it over and over for more experience.
- Mizzium Mortars: If you are going to play a card like this, Blasphemous Act is just better.
- Devastation Tide: Cyclonic Rift is just worlds better.
- Call the Skybreaker: #NotYourWinCon
- Blatant Thievery: Great card honestly, but I think Bribery is just better and less expensive.
- Blast of Genius: Not enough value.
- Curious Homunculus: I tried running this card and honestly on turn two would you rather hold up man to counter a spell or play a guy who only produces colorless mana, not red, your other color?
- Docent of Perfection: You don't care about tokens, and you don't have enough Wizards to make it worth your while.
- Enigma Drake: I think this card slot is just better occupied elsewhere.
- Goblin Electromancer: Baral, Chief of Compliance is a better card in everyway.
- Guttersnipe: I get how useful it could be, but in my experience it's targeted right away.
- Melek, Izzet Paragon: You can't reduce cost, and the value just isn't there.
- Niv-Mizzet, the firemind: You can't reduce cost.
- Talrand, sky summoner: You don't care about tokens.
Now that I'm done with cuts, and hopefully not making an ass out of myself here are some suggestions of really good cards that have lots of value!
- Pact of Negation & Force of Will I know they are expensive but... then when your opponent thinks they are safe you can still break them.
- Disallow You can reduce cost and it counters EVERYTHING!
- Mindswipe Counter and burn in one fell swoop, use it late game with a bunch of EXP and that's a good chunk of damage.
- Syncopate Permanently get rid of that dumb card you hate.
- Blue Sun's Zenith The card that just keeps on giving right? Also this card says 'Target Player' so you can mill a player out with this.
- Aetherflux Reservoir Jesus this card has saved my ass SOOOO many times, can't speak enough good about this card.
- Meekstone This is great if there's a lot of creature aggro in your meta, it crushes my play group
- Pyromancer's Goggles All aboard the value train...
- Inexorable Tide All of the EXPs!
- Leyline of Anticipation & Rhystic Study These are a MUST HAVE in ANY blue deck or deck playing blue. Your playgroup will hate you for it because 'Do you pay the one?' gets old but it's all value.
- Torrential Gearhulk Shit who cares about Snapcaster when you got this winner!
- Bonus Round & Spellseeker They just came out of battlebond but... I have high hopes for them in this deck.

At first glance I think so, but I would like to confirm if with infinite Mystic Speculation I can decide the entire order of the deck.
Thanks in advance!
