good luck on this one guys I like prowes but I don't think it's very good right now

- Drop Buried Alive, it really has no place here
- Kefnet's Monument won't work with ninjutsu
- Essence Scatter is good but very narrow and you have so many other great counters
- Suffer the Past can be strong but you're playing a lot of other graveyard hate, and graveyard theft
- Harvester of Souls is good, but maybe try something faster? Baleful Strix, Shadowmage Infiltrator, or Thalakos Seer would be ideal for all the on the board, off the board, play and can replace some unblockable creatures as they already have evasion
- Exotic Orchard seems like an odd choice in this deck, you only need 2 colours.
- Open Into Wonder seems pretty steep for unblockable when you already have cheaper options.

landofMordor I'm so glad you like the deck! I've been tinkering around with the deck and I've considered splashing red before, but it always ended up getting in the way of the cards that get effects from cycling. Throne of the God-Pharaoh good in the deck for the sheer number of tokens and has great synergy with Open Into Wonder . Thank you for all the suggestions and I will keep everything in mind.

Oh...I can't resist! Sorry for the extra comment, but I just love this deck. If I hadn't just built a RB discard deck, I'd be ordering this asap. I'm sure you've noticed this during playtesting, but never ever get rid of Alms of the Vein or Heir of Falkenrath Flip or Call the Bloodline. Those cards have won me soooooo many games, Alms especially, in my RB deck.
Last random thoughts: Pull from Tomorrow or Catalog over Open Into Wonder? Your deck could use the card draw that actually nets you cards, and I envision being able to refuel at instant speed and get some discard triggers would be pretty sick (like when an opponent attacks you). I'd suggest maybe 4-of a Bicycle land like Fetid Pools if you've got the money to spend.
Finally, if you're okay with splashing R, Tormenting Voice is the best draw spell in Madness/discard right now (in my humble opinion), and you'll also have Lightning Axe and Fiery Temper. But the deck is still great as it is.

Check out my aquireboard. Playsets of those plus 1 of each basic will bring you to 23 lands, although a playset of Concealed Courtyard may be too much. Either of the AKH Cycling lands can be used to bring the SOI lands in untapped, and late game can be cycled if you already have a large and diverse manabase.
Let me know how it plays! My current concern is lack of removal, which in an Esper deck seems unforgivable. Also card draw, hence Open Into Wonder in the Maybeboard, which would be really effective with a few zombies and an Aven Wind Guide on the board. I could probably go without Anointer Priests if anything, and again, Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun is still giving me uncertainty.
I won't get a chance to playtest until next Thursday, but will update here.

Tahnks for your quick respond. :)
As Foretold: I think you are right. My thought was, that after a couple of rounds you will always have more mana in your turn or even in turns of your opponents, because you can always cast one free spell with that card. And in the late game you can cast once in each of your turns one spell and it doesnt really matter how much that spell costs. Or even the commander if he is really expensive.
Open Into Wonder: Yeah now that you said it like that i see that too. You are completely right. It is really a bad card for your deck.
What about Sword of Kaldra? I saw that someone mentioned it here and you said it costs too much and that you prefer deathtouch. Maybe thats true but think of it like that. With Deathtouch you cant kill things with indestructible, but with the sword you could do that. Because it says that you remove that card from the game. So maybe one death touch equipment and then that one?
Oh und jetzt merke ich gerade das du aus Deutschland bist. :D Ja ich schicke dir eine PM, wo du Basilisk Collar ohne Probleme bekommen kannst.

thanks for ya comment :) you will have much fun with this list. i have 5 EDH-decks currently (each one in a different style to Play) and this one is really nice. i love playying it.
let me come down to the Cards you mentioned:
when i see new Cards i always ask myself "what does this Card for this type of deck?" and "are there any better Cards already filling the Slot?".
As Foretold: i dont really know if this Card is good or bad. it can be good but i would consider it bad. why? well, casting spells for Zero mana is good of course, but it will Need time to load up. i see it as a Kind of rampspell that i cant use directly and that cant be used for activated abilities. most spells in this deck are already low on cmc and i think this Card isnt worth a Slot in here. we have enough ramp to get a good boardstate.
Open Into Wonder: this Card is pretty bad in this deck. we dont care about beiing blocked or unblocked as we Play a control beatdown. we create a boardstate around our battlephases where People wont be able to block anyways. we nuke the table before we start attacking.
Glorybringer: 4/4 flying haste for 5cmc is not bad at all. but the effect is bad. we have enough possibilities to do damage or kill creatures. we wont choose to not untap one of our beaters. beside that, we have better creatures filling the upper spots with Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and our Dragons and sphinxes. they all have better effects for us.
Enigma Drake: i like him and will Play him in Standard but not in this list. all creatures in this list give us some Kind of Card Advantage or bring some element of destruction and control. this Little guy is just a flying Body with Evasion, but nothing more.
