I just noticed that I only have 32 lands total. I immediately want to run 35, so I’ll need to add Crosis's Catacombs, Temple of Epiphany, and City of Brass. They’re budget choices, but respectable. I’d remove Whispersilk Cloak, Cruel Ultimatum, and Mystical Teachings. I’d love to hear if I’m downright idiotic.

How is Mystical Teachings worse with the exclusion of a card it can't tutor? I feel Chainer's Edict really shines in UB Gurmag Angler decks that fill their graveyard with Forbidden Alchemy and Probe. I also feel decks that are overly dependent on their graveyard lose even harder to graveyard hate, which we can play around at instant speed.

Lots of great suggestions and I'll try to address each one.

Bojuka Bog perhaps gives me the most anxiety when piloting this deck, so granting myself hexproof would be incredibly useful. I really like Witchbane Orb for that reason too, but I feel like it's too costly to get out in terms of mana because I'd have to spend one of my earliest turns getting it out on the field for it to be worth anything which distracts a bit from the gameplan and it may not even stay on the field which makes it quite an investment into resources just to prevent a Bojuka Bog threat. Thing is, I can normally recover from Bojuka Bog rather effectively, because I usually just start putting specific combo pieces in the graveyard at a time, and if someone exiles those pieces from my graveyard, I move onto the next combo and try to assemble it. By the time I find a way to dump my whole library into the graveyard, I'm already going to combo off and Bojuka Bog won't be able to interrupt the combo on my turn unless they can Scapeshift with a Leyline of Anticipation out on the battlefield but that would be some roundabout tech. I'll still try to find a slot for Witchbane Orb for testing, thank you for the suggestion.

Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are cards that I specifically left out of the build because I didn't want to use equipment anywhere in this deck. Instead I have a solid graveyard package for Lazav and Ooze to hit for protection. Specifically fulfilling the same role as the equipment mentioned, I have Invisible Stalker and Cephalid Inkshrouder who protect Lazav from being targeted.

Lastly, I will start off by saying right away that Intuition is definitely going to be worked into the build. I forgot it was even a card and it just seems like the perfect tutor for this deck. Now I have considered Yawgmoth's Will before, but I opted against it since I would be risking exiling my creature(s) that I reanimate with it, and if they are important combo pieces but I don't end up comboing off then that's bad news for me. Snapcaster Mage is great, and I had him in mind for the original draft of this deck, but I haven't quite decided if or how I will fit him into the build. Mystical Teachings seems a little mana intensive for what it is and for that reason I don't think I would need it.

I was thinking the following could also be useful and in line with the decks goals: Intuition, Yawgmoth's Will, Snapcaster Mage and Mystical Teachings

More testing done tonight.

New favourite unfair interaction: Aminatou, the Fateshifter on 1 loyalty using -1 ability to flicker a (basic or not) Plains with Emeria Shepherd on the field only to let Aminatou go to the yard and bring her back on 3. I loved every single spiteful gaze my opponents gave me, lol!

Swapped a few things around: Mana Vault in, Mana Crypt out. Really happy with the result of this swap. Helps me progress the board much faster, especially after flickering it for extra 3 mana. The 1 life loss is much more manageable than 3, in my opinion. No Thran Dynamo as of yet, but I'm considering it or Basalt Monolith though.

Can't express how good both Draining Whelk and Mystical Teachings are. The first one is simply unexpected and helped me get around an Akroma's Vengeance and was quickly followed by a tutor for Eldrazi Displacer to deflect further disruption. The spell has proven its worth vs. Cat Tribal Voltron getting Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce a well-equipped Nazahn to hand. Having it as the only card in my hand, at the end of my opponent's turn and chaining it into Entreat the Dead via Mystical Tutor to rebuild my board in my upkeep was sweet, too.

Unlike you, I have less colourless land sources and it wasn't enough to succesfully chain Peregrine Drake and another creature for flicker shenanigans with Eldrazi Displacer, so I removed the Halimar Depths I was playing, and added Adarkar Wastes.

Currently tinkering with Personal Tutor and Rune-Scarred Demon as even with Sorin, Grim Nemesis who keeps proving himself fantastic, I don't think I have enough draw/tutor power.

First of all, thank you for your Primer, it’s been a great help! Very inspirational piece of deck tech!

I’ve recreated most of the deck with some minor changes.

I’ve cut out Utter End in favour of Sorin, Grim Nemesis as a redundant effect in Aminatou + Kaya + Guardian + Panharmonicon/Oath of Teferi combo. He also provides extra draws, something the deck struggles with, in my opinion.

I reduced Islands to three, adding Halimar Depths. Having hardly any Turn 1 plays, I think it’s worth keeping a slightly riskier hand and re-arranging the top to hit the missing land. If you have a fetchland in hand, you can t2 reshuffle easily. I also found it helpful when I was running out of gas.

I decided to include Eldrazi Displacer instead of Ixidron, so also had to tweak manabase a bit. Swapping Concealed Courtyard and Darkslick Shores for Caves of Koilos and Underground River respectively brought the deck to a satisfying number of colourless sources. Displacer does not disappoint! I was able to pull of Felidar Guardian + Gonti, Lord of Luxury tonight, without Aminatou, the Fateshifter and Panharmonicon or Oath of Teferi. Instead, I had a Peregrine Drake and five lands, including Winding Canyons and Reliquary Tower. Took a while to explain to the table it’s a win lol!

I do not own an Imperial Seal so decided to go more flickery way and added Brago, King Eternal. The deck isn’t that much value oriented though, so I will probably add Rune-Scarred Demon instead as I found myself struggling to find answers at times.

Also swapped Angel of Despair for a cheaper disruption creature – Reflector Mage. More likely to get cast with Winding Canyons. I know it only hits creatures, but I didn’t find myself in the need to heavily disrupt non-creature strategies just yet.

Perplexing Chimera is still on my list. I like how you can get it back with Aminatou’s -1, but opponents will slow roll their spells in order to get rid of it or will simply wipe the board. Considering putting Draining Whelk as it’s a more reactive disruption that I can later flicker with Eldrazi Displacer or bounce back with Venser.

Insidious Dreams is proving to be disappointing as oftentimes I don’t have enough acceptable cards to pitch to it. Might go with Personal Tutor or Mystical Teachings instead. The first one if I can afford to slow roll Entreat the Dead or can use Aminatou’s +1 to put Time Warp in my hand, provided Archaeomancer or Salvager of Secrets is on the field already. The second can be good to fetch Venser, Shaper Savant, a counterspell or any other instant tutor effect. Flashback can prove useful too.

Thanks for sharing your deck with us, hopefully you’ll find my playtesting experience useful, too!

Hey, this is Hijtblast from reddit. A few options that I think could be worth considering. Mystical Teachings finds two instants with the same tutor, finding things such as Angel's Grace Ad Nauseam, Notion Thief, and Dramatic Reversal, to name a few. With the iso rev win on as well as the chain veil wincons, Whir of Invention tutors for a significant amount of your wincons. Altar of the Brood seems bad outside of felidar combo, but you already run Trinket Mage so I could see it being useful. As well, I would suggest, above all else, Pull from Eternity. It gives you access to some twister opener piles, recurs exiled combo pieces, and it has the ever important cedh stat of really cool art.
