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.)

yknow i forgot to give you credit for the GENIUS of using Serum Powder and the low land count... i have not seen that strategy before... or at least i didnt put the pieces together until recently with how that worked :p i do have some newfound creature suggestions for you though this time though! how about running 4x Faerie Miscreant and 4x Spellstutter Sprite to replace 4x fogbank and 2x Omenspeaker & 2x Sidisi's Faithful?

I have a U/B deck based on the same gimmick that I've messed around with. Some suggestions that have worked for me
Halimar Depths some extra scry in your land base, although it slows the deck down moderately, which isn't the biggest problem considering the strategy here anyways.
Also consider Peer Through Depths to assist in grabbing Quest that much quicker.
If you want to look at my deck you can here Depths of Deceit, although I've recently butchered it as I'm trying out a couple of different things so some cards may seem odd.

To add a card to your deck: go to "edit" then search or quick add. I recommend the latter in your case, type in the name and the rest will fill itself out. As for your deck itself: you might like Omenspeaker and Sage of Epityr. Just some low drops to organize your deck while ya await Azami. Lastly a few bombs like Stormtide Leviathan and Inkwell Leviathan can go a long way towards winning games. Best of luck with the scroll scouring and if ya need anything else feel free to reply and ask!

Your CMC is way too high. 21 cards at 6+ mana, 31 at 5+! That's 1/5 and just shy of 1/3 your total deck respectively. I know you can play many for free but hear me out: you are going to draw a ton of these and they will be dead weight. So what to do? First work on your creature base! Thing in the Ice Flip(if you can afford it!), Laboratory Maniac, Disciple of the Ring, Voidmage Prodigy, Stonybrook Banneret, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Augury Owl, Omenspeaker, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Sidisi's Faithful, etc. That gives ya a much more stable creature base! Now to drop some of your well bad big drops. They might feel epic but they kinda suck sadly. You want plenty to use but many of your big, bad drops are kinda underwhelming, no? I could go on but think that's enough for one comment. If ya want more help then feel free to reply! Best of luck!

Personally, I am not a fan of Shivan Sand-Mage or Timebender. They are one time unless you are recurring them back to your hand somehow. I much rather have more fatties coming in than one fatty come in to be killed off.
Same goes for Omenspeaker, Mercurial Chemister, Augur of Bolas, and Archivist. There are better options, especially ones to suspend like Arcanis the Omnipotent, Mindwrack Liege or any of your massive creatures. The way I think of it, 2 mana for a chump? or 2 mana for a fatty? I think you have enough spells to slow their game you don't need your chumps. But, I also have a fairly budget meta, I don't know your opponents.
Ideally my game goes as:T2-3 Jhoira with protection. T4, pass turn. Before your turn, suspend Obliterate and something fierce. T5, play all your defenses to hold until obliterate happens and/or suspend more fatties. The key is survival. At this point suddenly everyone wants you dead.
Yes, the Timebender and Shivan Sand-Mage would be useful here to pop Obliterate out now, but you have other ways. Usually though, you need to protect your warp ins with your counters or just slowing them down. Frozen AEther, Winter Orb, etc the usual dick moves. Your walls are nice, but they may need to be cut, again just for their single usage.

Thanks for the feedback Killkow, but I can't use most of the cards you suggested, because it's for a format created here where I live (Brazil) that only allow decks that cost U$10 or under. By the way, these are realy good suggestions, but only one Keranos, God of Storms or two Thassa, God of the Sea already exceeds the budget, so they are a no go. I think the only suggestion I can follow is sideboard some Scouring Sands, as there are some goblin and elves deck where I play and that can deal with them. Oh, and the Mizzium Skins are already on the sideboard ;). I also think the Sigiled Skinks are terrible, maybe I will swap them for some Omenspeakers or Augury Owls (at least the owls can fly :P). I realy wish a could follow all of your suggestions, thanks again anyway.

Brandon, i have added you! :)
Guys,I have found some cards which might be useful. I do play some games against my friends, and i found Scry very helpful to control my deck.
