When Omenspeaker enters the battlefield, scry 2. (Look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

My only suggestion is that I dont think Omenspeaker is really that useful here when you can have Magma Jet for the same cost but with the ability to deal 2 damage as well. Always seems kinda redundant to me. Great deck tho +1 xD
Deck plays really well having Omenspeaker as a 1/3 for early chump blocks is great and having Steady Progress almost guarantees a Stormtide Leviathan by turn 5 I even had one out on turn 4. But all the two drops have definitely helped keeping me alive until I can put a Stormtide Leviathan out which is usually end game scenario within a couple turns because of my early fliers.
I actually used to run both of them in older versions of this deck. I found that the flashback ability of Momentary Blink to be more useful and versatile than just running more spells. Omenspeaker might have a sideboard home. Hmm...
Oops thanks for pointing out that error with Lightning Strike/Bolt i have corrected it now! I was trying to stay away from rotating cards but i can certainly see how they would help me for the next few weeks.
I played this deck at FNM last night, and still only managed my typical win rate of 2/5. What DID change however was all the games i got beat i lost in 3 rather than in 2. Which i guess is a slight improvement.
I mostly got beat the same way as before, beat down by creatures - but on more than one occasion is was monsters with protection from blue coming in from the sideboard to crush me in later stages of a game.
I also probably made a few misplays, against one green opponent i should have been burning down his mana ramping cards in the early game but instead i was trying to burn down his HP. These green decks have so many big monsters.
I was previously running 4 dissolves and 3 negates mainboard, now only running 2 Dissolve i am noticing the difference big time, not being able to shut down very much enemy casting at all. Triton Tactics on my Omenspeaker and Satyr Firedancer helped me out in a few spots vs token decks, as did Circle of Flame against those rabblemaster goblin tokens.
cool build, i love decks like these, they are hard to play in the current meta. this will get +1. please check some of my builds on my profile you might like some. i think some utility creatures might help, such as Prognostic Sphinx or Omenspeaker . i also think Rakdos's Return is needed in this build. I also think Liliana Vess , Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver and/or either Jace, the Living Guildpact or Jace, Architect of Thought will be huge in this deck, i know your trying to keep it instant and sorcery heavy, but some of these cards can be game changers for you. Except omenspeaker i just recommend him cause he's a good blocker and fixes the top part of the deck.
acstjoh You're right, the main strategy was to ping my enemy with early flyers and the possibility of a 5/5 indestructible creature or a 5/5 flying early game (Possibly by turn 2). All this whilst stalling my opponent with spells and for later in the game, use Hypnotic Siren to steal possible enemy threats and help go for the winning swing. I moved around some things in my deck, I agree with you on Dakra Mystic and Omenspeaker . I was skeptical about Illusory Angel at first but you have made some good points. Plus the idea of an early 4/4 flier is hard to pass up. I can definitely see some great combos with Illusory Angel and any of the other spells I have. Please keep providing suggestions and anyone else viewing this deck, you are also welcomed for your suggestions.
Less lands and more card draw, I imagine with this deck you burn through a lot of spells leaving yourself top decking. That is bad. Also scry works amazing with card draw. Also, all of your "four ofs" are good, but you don't need more than 1 Stormcaller of Keranos on the field ever, do you? I would say 1 less of each creature for 2 Stealer of Secrets 1 Nivix Guildmage 2 Last Thoughts . Then remove an additional Stormcaller of Keranos , Stormchaser Chimera , and Omenspeaker for 3 Aqueous Form
