You have a nice instant toolbox. How about some Mystical Teachings?

Definitely take out Failed Inspection Traumatic Visions Marang River Prowler Aether Meltdown Rod of Ruin Millstone Slayer's Cleaver Soul Separator Lens of Clarity Pacification Array Tome Scour Winged Sliver Windrider Patrol Sliver Construct Skyline Predator Shifting Sliver Hinterland Drake Monastery Flock Kheru Spellsnatcher Deep-Sea Terror Diffusion Sliver Mystical Teachings
I know thats a lot but most of those cards are just straight bad for commander, and the slivers only benefit each other and theres just not enough of them, replace those and I have a few more suggestions
Serum Visions Cephalid Constable Chasm Skulker (def get Skulker) Deadeye Navigator Delver of Secrets Flip Disciple of the Ring Djinn of Wishes Contingency Plan and Niblis of Frost are just a few more that are pretty good

That's everything I have that's unlisted from your wants. Everything that's listed as a match I checked to make sure I still have, so request anything. There are a few cards that I've offered to other people for trades, so if you want them I'll wait a day or two on their reply (specifically, the Eldrazi Displacers you mentioned).
Since you mentioned edition, I tried to be accurate on what printing each card is with these. I can't guarantee that everything in my binder is 100% accurate on edition, but I try to do my best to make sure each card is at least showing the correct art and card frame.
Cards of yours I'm specifically interested in are: Diabolic Intent, 2 Stoneforge Mystics, Gate to Phyrexia, Monastery Mentor, 2 Toxic Deluge, Forbidden Orchard, and Quirion Ranger, though of course I'll trade for any other matches as well.
Hope to hear from you.

I like the idea here, I'm tinkering and think it might work best as a Nahiri's Wrath control setup. Lotus Bloom is a fantastic card, but it does leave you with one less card in hand for 2 turns, so that should be taken into account. Telling Time could be Peer Through Depths as you're gonna be trying to cope with dead cards anyway, so topdeck control is likely less valuable than digging for an answer T2-3.
I feel like a Trophy Mage toolbox setup to search out spellweaver helix and mimic vat will be optimal, as it also gives access to Ensnaring Bridge. Damping Matrix/Imi Statue and Trinisphere, or a Fist of Suns/Inspiring Statuary combo. The only issue is the amount of affinity hate around, which would screw with reliability.
Sin Prodder and Nahiri's Wrath feel functional, but I don't know how well they'll actually fit into things- sorcery speed isn't really what you want for non-discard control. A little bit of me wants to cascade into Wheel of Fate then for ultimate BM, discard and card draw, but it feels cheap and gimicky.
The problem I've always had with the huge-huge spells style is that they spend most of the game as a blank card, so it tends to 'gum up' a deck's draws and hands unless you have a way of running less of them. Running just searing wind and instant search like Mystical Teachings might work, but then its just a different wincon on a mystical teachings deck.
All told, interesting idea- not sure quite how to pull it off, short of the weird mill variant I made. Good luck and happy brewing.

No we played. I felt like I dominated every game that didn't involve me getting mana screwed. It was awesome to tutor up Terminate with Mystical Teachings eot, then untap and go terminate, snap, terminate. My opponent's couldn't handle it most games. :)

So for a while I've been playing the Esper version of Brain in a Jar in Modern and having some really good success with it. However, I credit most of its success to the fact that Esper control is actually quite good. So I've been toying with a couple lists and made a Mystical Teachings list that I think looks really solid and wanted to get some thoughts as to is if it looks competitive enough or not.

DragonHaiku Mortician Beetle is really cool. I like how MM17 reinvigorated the pauper decks, especially the BG sacrifice decks. BG Sacrifice (Aristocrats) could be built up as a low to the ground like I did with a only 1-2 CMC threats and answers or can be built to become mid range control variation. I personally prefer the quick beat down / combo and the potential to win as quickly as turn 3. I like the instagrow nature of the deck. 1 CMC 1/1 beats turn 2/2 beats. 2 CMC 1/1 beats turn into 3/3 beats and everything does a 1 for 1 for maximum edict protection.
I also love the synergy between 4 Unearth and the 2-for-1 creatures. The mana ramp creatures do their job, but are more a temporary mana bump to move the clock up. The deck if it never sees a Carrion Feeder can also play an aggro beat down against Mystical Teachings decks.
Tragic Slip is a mandatory 4 of and is basically a 1 CMC kill anything. It is the bees knees of removal when in the right shell.
