pryoplasm, the main problem with Sigiled Starfish is that it's too slow and strictly worse than few other creatures included here, at least in first 4 turns, which are crucial to me. Starfish comes out turn 2, without any impact on your draw queue. That means, that - instead of casting Sage of Epityr, Sage Owl, Augury Owl or Omenspeaker i'll be running blind for each card next to the first one. Turn 3 - I can tap and scry with Starfish (IF it's not removed only to prevent me from doing so, what can't happen after other creatures I mentioned, with immidiate impact on my draw queue, come to play). Srcy 1 - land, ok. What comes next? Can't say, pure lottery and few dozens of games taught me, that in lotter I don't stand much of a chance ;)
All in all, Starfish, after several tests, was replaced other creatures you can see above. Singly casted Sage of Epityr, Sage Owl or Augury Owl (speaking 'bout 2nd turn cards) can make the whole game for me. If they won't and somehow I'll be still alive during mid- or lategame, Starfish is also much more short-range effecitve than them.

in the same manner, it can help prepare boost for Mindshrieker
if I'd be in crucial need (I can see that opponent will draw his Splinter Twin ), I can get rid of unwanted card
Why 2x Mystic instead of 2x Omen Speaker? It's cheaper, and Speaker is only extention of Augury Owl. I draw him a little too much, so I can increase the odds of drawing Augury or Sage owl instead of him.
Your opinions? :)

Just go with Phenax, God of Deception and use creatures with fat butts to mill them out (Silumgar, the Drifting Death, Omenspeaker, Qarsi Sadist, Sidisi's Faithful, etc...). And mainboard Grindclock and 1 Tormod's Crypt for side so Amy Dragon and/or Raptor decks can't recur threats. Boom!

Like the deck but start by cutting 2x + and add 4xShivan Reefs. Its a combo deck so you shouldnt need the Disdainful Stroke and Dissolve its over too quickly for you to get enough mana to cast them. Negates stay to protect the combo. I would add +2 Anticipate +2 Taigam's Scheming cut the Tormenting Voice. I would keep the Battlefield Thaumaturge add cut the rest of the creatues Instead I would use 4xOmenspeaker and 4xStratus Dancer. Finally I would add +2Treasure Cruise and +2Magma Jet and that should round out the deck.

Thanks SirFowler - another bunch of options to cut to make me question each card. I like it!
Stubborn Denial - not sure how you get that 1 creature/card triggers Ferocious? These 12 cards trigger it: Armada Wurm, Obstinate Baloth, Sun Titan, Thragtusk, Wilt-Leaf Liege (this may also create a number of extra 4+ power creatures), Sword of Fire and Ice / Armadillo Cloak / Simic Charm / Wax/Wane (on any creature power 2+), Elspeth, Knight-Errant (+3/+3), Celestial Colonnade, Vines of Vastwood. Then, the 13th card that triggers it is Roon of the Hidden Realm, and I am guaranteed to see him in most games once or twice and protecting him is really important.

You're so close to finishing the deck. What I would suggest cutting.
Wax/Wane is not a creature with an etb trigger and only one side is worth casting. I don't think it's worth it IMO.
Knight of the Reliquary seems out of place in this deck. Since it doesn't have any etb effect, you can't abuse it as well as you could.
Omenspeaker just seems lackluster because you already have plenty of help with card draw.
IMO, Dramatic Rescue seems too mana heavy for what it does. Idk. I've played with it, but I feel like it wasn't doing it's job because I had to have both AND open just to cast it, but it just falls flat most of the time.
With Stubborn Denial, you only have 1 creature that can abuse it's Ferocious ability, so to need both pump spells and creatures on the field just for a chance to counter a spell completely is just not the best for commander.
And lastly, you might want to take out 1 more land. Idk, I just feel like you can do well even without be mana flooded.
