Hi, at first glance the deck looks good but you are missing a few key pieces.

Here's a few weird cards : Omniscience and Sunbird's Invocation - really fun cards but you are not a jodah big mana deck, no reduction of costs and no green to ramp... I should build that :) Mind Rot and Vicious Rumors - not efficient enough and even completely useless in some cases. I would replace those with

if you want to 1v1 : counterspells and big threats like Demanding Dragon Etali, Primal Storm and Niv-Mizzet, Parun

If you want to multi : boardwipes and recurrent threats like Cry of the Carnarium Jaya's Immolating Inferno Nezahal, Primal Tide .

But three colours decks have such a great number of deck building choices that you can get lost in it... It's amazing. I would suggest (most powerful deck I think) grixis spells with a lot of removal to kill later with flipped bolas or combos Primal Amulet  Flip and explosion//expansion

or more fun, reanimator with Isareth the Awakener and Dead Revels , Dire Fleet Daredevil

Hey Pikobyte, sweet deck! I was wondering what your thoughts are about some newer cards like Prime Speaker Vannifar , Underrealm Lich , Doom Whisperer or Nezahal, Primal Tide ?

Icbrgr: I could run Dispel here, but I've generally found it to be a somewhat limited counterspell. It's not a bad card! On the other hand, I've played both Psychic Possession and Teferi's Puzzle Box here and not found either particularly useful for my strategy (since this is honestly an infinite combo deck, with the wheels theme secondary).

Ballzanya: Rhystic Study has definitely been in and out of the deck (it's very meta-dependent), but I'm not really a fan of Sphinx's Tutelage here. If I have enough card draw to make it relevant, I've already won... and it actively enabled GY decks. I've actually run Purphoros, God of the Forge , Goblin Bombardment , Impact Tremors , and Chandra, Flamecaller , and honestly they got the axe after not pulling their weight. I'm not really convinced by Chasm Skulker here (it's an inefficient wincon that can't be a sink when I have infinite mana, and doesn't work with my other combos), and Outpost Siege doesn't seem worth 4 mana here. I considered Nezahal, Primal Tide , actually! But I can't easily get him out ahead of the curve, and I want to win before turn 7 in most games :/ and Toothy, Imaginary Friend seems cute, but I'm not willing to pay 4 for his abilities.

Thank you both for your comments!

Maybe Nezahal, Primal Tide ? I have a similar control list that you can look at if you like, I’ve tested it and it does very well. You can find it here

It’s 3 Colors and SUPER Friendly!!

Hey man, I like the look of the list! I've always wanted to make a Nin deck but didn't know exactly what direction to go with it.

However, I think there's a couple cards that would synergize super well:

The Locust God: I feel like this is the perfect creature for this deck. He lets you produce tokens that will overwhelm the board quick with Nin's draw power not to mention you could always target the locust tokens in a pinch to draw some cards. Also, you can hit the Locust God himself, draw, then recast him later. Not to mention that looting ability is pretty great.

Willbreaker: A super sneaky trick to take over your opponent's creatures with Nin's ability. Simply target their creature for 1 and yoink, it's yours!

Cyclonic Rift: Probably the best sweeper available in blue, its a bit expensive both in regards to CMC and actual money but always worth it.

Solemn Simulacrum: Great ramp and a great target to kill off with your own Nin.

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Niv-Mizzet, Parun: Really capitalizes on Nin's draw ability. Also punishes opponents for casting instants/sorceries.

Nezahal, Primal Tide: Great high end finisher. Protects itself and lets your handsize get crazy.

Consecrated Sphinx: and of course this big blue daddy. Suffers from the same thing Cyclonic Rift does being a little spendy money-wise but I think this deck is a perfect home for it.

Also, consider Thought Vessel! Great little bit of ramp, although colorless I feel it serves a similar purpose to Spellbook but will benefit you more.

All in all, great deck and I look forward to playing against it! +1 from me. EDIT: I know most of these aren't artifacts and it looks like you've got an artifact theme, so if you feel these don't work well with your deck let me know and I'll gladly look for cards a little more synergistic!

Thanks Hexadlexagon! I considered green, but I value cards like Chromium, the Mutable, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Azor, the Lawbringer, and Nezahal, Primal Tide in Control mirrors and decks like Big red and Monored. My original deck was bant with Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar and Trostani Discordant, but I found it a bad matchup against those builds.
