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.)
You are kinda all over the place. Phenax, God of Deception isn't as good when you consider that the rest of your cards are dealing damage. I would replace him and Wall of Frost with either Magma Jet or Omenspeaker to help set up Keranos as well as lower your curve. Id also recommend a full 12 scry lands for the same reason. another good addition would be Stormbreath Dragon . He is amazing against control, provides devotion to mogis and keranos, and has potential to deal massive amounts of damage. I also think Dissolve should replace Psychic Strike due to the scry. I played my Grixis deck last night and did very well with it. The scry was so ridiculously helpful, and I had everything I needed except for 1 game. I ended up top 8ing after beating Simic aggro, G/R monsters, and Jund monsters
I'm skeptical regarding Aqueous Form - it is pretty godlike with the Flamespeaker Adept , but otherwise all your stuff is flying and/or deals damage besides attacking. I think there could be better utility here. Drawing seems redundant with the insane amount of scry, but maybe something in that direction.
I doubt it. Most decks that would play Omenspeaker wouldn't be attacking very often. And if you're not attacking then "inspired" isn't very good. Sure you can get tricky and tap/untap him by other means, but that's trying to do too much. You'd have to devote too much of your deck to be tricky and overall just make it worse. My opinion at least.
Will this be a trade for Omenspeaker in many decks? After all, why Scry, when you can tutor?
I'll just list out three of the common decks you'll face and how to prepare for them. If you want a more in-depth guide I can produce that as well.
Reasoning: We need more draw power with a third Opportunity , and much more control in our deck to duel a creature-light, control-heavy Esper deck. Annul is an excellent answer to things like Detention Sphere or a god like Erebos, God of the Dead or even Underworld Connections . Use it as a trump card when you only have one mana left open on your opponent's turn. Cyclonic Rift and Pithing Needle stop the main enemy, planeswalkers. Take out many of our creatures because Supreme Verdict just renders them dead and we need mana open in midrange to combat Sphinx's Revelation .
Reasoning: You're dealing with early creatures like Gladecover Scout and Witchstalker that have hexproof and get enchanted with nasty auras. Domestication is just too slow here. Syncopate is too risky and we don't need 2 AEtherling in this matchup. Instead, we get AEtherize , which destroys all non bestowed auras in addition to stalling, Cyclonic Rift , which does the same, Glaring Spotlight which removes hexproof, and Annul to help stop the auras.
consider dropping an Omenspeaker and increasing your Mizzium Skin to 4x since it is vital to protect the Flamespeaker Adept . consider replacing Artisan of Forms with Fated Infatuation which will help meet devotion for Thassa, God of the Sea , which can be your indestructible backup, and you scry2 for copying the Adept. You need to put this deck back together and try these changes
