Great Decklist! :) Maybe it's just my Meta, but with Thassa's Oracle (should totally play this, you have instant effects for Toothy) but Tale's End does great work. Keeps commanders away, counters Thassa etc.

Laboratory Maniac personally I often have Jace in the last maybe 10 cards in the Library and Toothy with too many counters. having another way was a good choice for mne

I play Fated Infatuation//Cackling Counterpart for the Phantasmal image due to being instant.

Cyclonic Rift was already suggested, but in my Meta you need quite much interaction to stay in the game. You can't bound Toothy but this still destroys turns and wins

Azor's Gateway  Flip don't mind the exile, works great most times you have tons of cards and only one landdrop. With IsoRev filters through your deck without decking from a too big Toothy

Extract Having Omnipresent Oracles and more consitent Decks, this stops wins for 1 Mana

Perilous ResearchInstant 2 mana 2 cards for sacing your worst permanent. or Sacing Toothy to get more crads (The 2 from Perilous research won't count if you sac toothy, tho)

Overburden Even with Labman and Oracle in my deck, nearly doesn't harm you at all but, again, destroys Elfballs, TnT , Chulane etc

I still do play Mox opal, but often stuck without Metalcraft early.

Mystical dispute is great against blue spells. But really far from a good counter in any other case. Tale's End made it in for me

Personally I also really dislike Pact of Negation, having a Pact but Knowing you can't pay it makes it a feelsbad card for me. Free counter is great, but Losing isn't.

Careful Study went out for Perilous research, due to being Sorcery.

Copy Artifact Often relies on opponents. Maybe I'm missing something here, but a second Isochron is often Winmore for me.

i really love your deck, and I like the faces of new players in the LGS underestimating Toothy :D

Keep going!

Ingraved, thank you for the incredible suggestion to add Overburden , (and the info with the errata) I love it! I found one at my LGS and added it to the deck.

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:

Lands: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Serra's Sanctum , Rishadan Port , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Yavimaya Hollow , Fabled Passage

Sorceries/Instants: Drain Power , Bant Charm , Tamiyo's Epiphany , Sunder , Armageddon , Flood of Tears , Terminus

Planeswalkers: Teferi, Time Raveler , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Estrid, the Masked , Narset, Parter of Veils , Dovin Baan , Dovin, Hand of Control

Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.

Artifacts: Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Torpor Orb , Candelabra of Tawnos , Forcefield , Meekstone , Ward of Bones , Gilded Lotus , Thran Dynamo , Everflowing Chalice

Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

Have you considered running Storm Cauldron ? Another great way to control the board that your commander can help circumvent. I've got a Patron of the Moon deck in the works, too, but I'm not running a competitive version. I'm considering running Mana Breach as well, but am not sure yet. I am running Overburden and Storm Cauldron , and use them in Simic lands deck I run, which work awesome. The downfall in blue, is the lack of ramp, like you point out.

I run a lot of land of bounce in the deck, and am considering Khalni Gem as well. How does it work for you? Also, with the untap effects in the deck, I'm giving Scaretiller a go, too. Have you thought about it?

+1 from a fellow Patron builder!

Exit777, yes i agree with the both basic fetcher and i thought about it too. I don't know if they're worth it yet, i'll see after some games. so far i want to ramp hard with the big rocks as it's seen so i have the mana for other synergies or the carddraws, so i hope to get to a hand full of lands anyway. we'll see...

Overburden is in many Patron decklists and i even thought i had one, but obviously thats wrong and i think i will include soon :D

Mana Breach is a nice option in this deck and i saw it before too - i agree it's a very strong card for the deck strategies and i will think about including it!! Deprive is also nice, i have to think about that too.

Thanks!

Love it!

Patron provides such a unique angle for a mono U deck. Some stuff I had in mind when I thought about building him was Skittering Surveyor and Pilgrim's Eye as ramp options, since Patron turns drawing lands into a strength rather than a weakness. There are some bits and bobs that include lands in their costs like Deprive or Tragic Lesson but I'm not sure yet if they're worth it.

I'm a huge fan of bouncing lands with the patron though, so I'm pleased to see Sunder included. Some similar effects to slow down play that I wanted to try out in this are Mana Breach and Overburden ,maybe consider them if you havent already :)
