drop Celestial Colonnade or Creeping Tar Pit no need to have both in the deck. rather have a shock land in place of it so if you need the mana you have the option. I don't know why the Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek I would think Hero's Downfall would be better replaced for it. like the deck idea though and the Nephalia Drownyard idea.
The flavor of this deck greatly amuses me. How is Surgical Extraction working out for you? I've never been impressed with it main because it's not always proactive enough. I wonder if moving it to the side and running something like Thoughtseize , Murderous Cut , Dismember , Spell Snare , or something else that lets you answer dangerous things right now might be better. You might also go up a few lands with Nephalia Drownyard ; while your curve basically tops out at 3 mana (only Damnation at 4 since Archive Trap should almost always be 0), it seems like it would always appreciate extra mana to flashback things and chain together spells.
Because Hedron Crab works off of Landfall you can easily tweak your lands to give yourself more triggers. Try Dimir Aqueduct or Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse or even the new Polluted Delta . Nephalia Drownyard doesn't seem like it's even needed. tapping 4 lands to mill 3 cards is BAD. You certainly don't need to run 4 of them.
Final thought for you - Devastation Tide might be worth running, at least in the sideboard. Most of your permanents are low CMC. If you play this before you play the big CMC cards you won't hardly slow yourself down. But it could cripple an opponent working with a boardstate - especially a token based boardstate.
Nephalia Drownyard , might be a good card. I'll put it into my maybe spot, just don't want to go too much into the mill side of things.
For land, I am old school 40/20 format, but been seeing that is not the standard anymore and people are going 24ish now. What do you think a good spread would be. I was never good at this and probably why i usually sick to low casting mono/dual color decks.
I am liking Liliana's Reaver . It is not flying that Hypnotic Specter has, but has deathtouch. Might switch out 1-3 Hypnotic Specter for this guy. I do have Fog Bank after all for air blocking. What do you think?
You'll probably need a little more than 20 land. Consider Nephalia Drownyard
Haha I lovve Entreat the Angels and you could add it if you want but the deck has enough moving parts and dead draws in spots that I have got with the treefolk, Nephalia Drownyard , and Thragtusk as wincons, as well Thragtusk can gain you life back you have paid for lands and you can recycle it over and over with Terminus while getting value. (Also double white is somewhat hard)
Nephalia Drownyard works just fine in my creatureless esper mill, but its not really a win con by itself, youd need to find some other small tools and plan to really push for the mill every time before it starts to work. im curious about the elspeth knight errant though. i know shes great and super powerful, but she doesnt seem particularly synergistic here, celestial colonade already has flying, and you dont have many permanents to worry about getting destroyed. theres lots of great esper control walker options, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver has been an all-star in my esper mill recently, but i think even more appropriate here might be a liliana, the three cmc one in particular seems like a great idea, but the 5drop liliana could work as well for a lot less $. another interesting idea would be moving only slightly laterally with the walker by using Sorin, Lord of Innistrad . the new one Sorin, Solemn Visitor could potentially do a similar job, though my gut says the token for +1 on lord of innistrad seems like a better long term plan than the buff for +1 for this kind of control setup. plus lord of innistrad is the most like knight errant in functionality. maybe im not quite getting the elspeth here though, is there some synergy in the plan that im missing?
