Courser of Kruphix helps filter your topdeck, and has synergy with Shidiqi with a high toughness value.

Kaervek the Merciless falls into the category of multiplayer punishment with a similar effect to Vial Smasher. With opponents at low lifetotals, sometimes he completely locks their ability to cast their better, expensive spells.

Oblivion Sower is a high-cmc creature with a high toughness, which makes it powerful with each of your commanders. Its ramping ETB ability is pretty nice, too.

Rampant Growth is another great ramping spell, although you might not need it since you already have ten sources of mana ramp.

Mina and Denn, Wildborn could replace Rites of Flourishing in order to apply the ability only to yourself, but your list might need the card draw. In which case, Phyrexian Arena is another strong option.

the synergy is that you get to discard your hand and with that you can retrieve the cards with tasigur's ability not only that but if he happens to be in your command zone that is a bunch of cards that can be delved away to cast him if need be.

i personally love the artifact so i am biased however i do feel that your commander would be able to use the jar

also while i know that you have Anvil of Bogardan i'd suggest Monastery Siege due to keeping your draw step while getting the looting effect and if you do not need it there is another mode to the enchantment for one blue devotion more

if you want to take the exile/mill strat further try Psychic Spiral with cards like Wood Sage and Crypt Incursion / Tormod's Crypt for your Oblivion Sower

also because why not add Cheatyface because un cards are always fun

You should throw in Eldrazi Temple and Oblivion Sower for the ramp you want.

Too slow you say? I wonder how we can make it faster.

There are three copy effects available to you in Standard:

They all cost a bit of mana, especially considering that the spell you want to copy, Startled Awake  Flip is 2UU.

Standard is pretty fast right now with the best decks winning on turn 4. There are other combos for lower-tiered decks that win on turns 5-6.

In order for you to win with a mill strategy, you can combo to mill their entire deck in one shot, or you can grind them out over a few turns, all the while armed with removal/counterspell disruption in order to not let them get a foothold.

In theory, blue would allow you to do that. You could play a blue control game for some turns until you get the mana you need to copy a couple Startled Awake  Flips. By that point, however, you may want to find a faster win condition.

I'm sure the deck is fun to play. I would like to make it fun and even more efficient at what it does!

So, if we multiply the copy effects, and look for other mill effects. The other mill cards in standard:

Cards that exile from the top of the library:

They're all pretty slow... So I'm still wondering how it can be made faster.

Always wanted to see Oblivion Sower in an Oona deck. That must make some amazing plays.

Do you think including Oona in the 99 would be worth it?

I need cards that allow me to take things I exiled from my opponent, this is going into a Oona, Queen of the Fae deck, and i already have Oblivion Sower

I would highly recommend Wasteland Strangler and Oblivion Sower as cheap rares that work nicely with ingest. Glimmer of Genius could replace Dispell in the main board. It would help you hit land drops and Dispell can be a dead card in some matchups.
