Trying to make the deck by 1/25 for when a friend comes to visit so I am opening it up to a bunch more trades and versions than i initially would habe. I have unlisted stuff as well if I can get multiple cards from the list.

Need:
3x Baral, Chief of Compliance
1x Desperate Ritual
2x Grapeshot
3x Remand
4x Manamorphose either art
3x Pyretic Ritual
1x Noxious Revival
3x Serum Visions (any set of old art)
4x Shivan Reef
4x Spirebluff Canal

2x Empty the Warrens
1x Gigadrowse
4x Pieces of the Puzzle
1x Wipe Away

I have my Binder, as well as some unlisted if trading for multiple cards is an option, otherwise I can look at other binders.

I will greatly appreciate and consider most reasonable offers.

Unstable Obelisk- Its mana intensive to do, but this effect is very valuable to have in your colors. I recommend having it just in case.

Bedlam Reveler- A very good topdeck late in the game, as well as an efficent beater for that refills your hand. Not so good if you're early on and dont have self mill

Bloodwater Entity- for a Reclaim and an evasive body with prowess is not a bad rate. Downside of course is having to use your jori trigger or a cantrip to get the card into your hand (but thats not so hard).

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip- Card selection is King. This fuels your delve spells and smooths out your draws in the early game, while relieving pressure and ensuring you get your jori triggers late

Torrential Gearhulk- This is the only gearhulk that is seeing modern play for a reason. It lets us keep using our graveyard as a resource, while being a big body. Very often you can flash it in to block and cast a random spell in your graveyard FOR FREE to get a jori trigger. Thats a 3 for 1. And now you have a 5/6.

Chaos Warp- see Unstable Obelisk

Magma Jet- Part of my efforts to find interaction that gives card advantage. 2 damage isn't a lot, but its an instant speed play that can pick off utility creatures while giving us powerful card selection

Oona's Grace-Particularly powerful with your cost reducers, gives us a way to use our excess lands to hit jori triggers. Also an excellent card to discard.

Remand- Tempo play that digs you deeper. I'd probably fire this one off at the first chance i'd get.

Think Twice- Similar to Oona's Grace.

Voyage's End- Instant speed bounce with scry. Similar options discussed later.

Riptide Laboratory- mana is actually a big issue with this deck, but I think this effect is powerful enough

Anchor to the Aether- Sorcery speed, but going to the top of the library messes up your opponent's next draw, while the scry digs you further through the deck. I haven't played with this one yet, but it might be good to test.

Pieces of the Puzzle- is a lot and sorcery speed sucks, but this is a powerful draw spell that has the advantage of also filling your graveyard

Spite of Mogis- This is the addition that I am most proud of. I can't believe we didn't know this card existed.

Desperate Ravings- Good rate on this card and instant speed with flashback is nice. random is bad though

Lat-Nam's Legacy- similar rate to Desperate Ravings, but doesn't get you the card immediately

Perilous Voyage- Excellent if it hits something with cmc or less, underwhelming if not. Meta call. Also note that it has cyclonic rift's restriction.

Repulse-Bounce with draw. I think this is the best rate for this effect.

Select for Inspection-A bit troublesome to use, but the scry bounce for only is nice

Stymied Hopes- I'd consider this one a tempo play. Hit the first thing you can, so you can get that sweet sweet scry.

Unsubstantiate- Versatile spell, but the lack of card advantage on it is a minus

Baral's Expertise- Big bounce spell, will trigger Jori. But costs .

Mystic Speculation- Could be ok. Scry 3 is a lot, but thats all it does. I dont see you buying this back all that often.

Shreds of Sanity- 2 cards back for 3 mana + a card. Sounds interesting

Strategic Planning- sorcery speed impulse, but fills your yard.

Void Snare- 1 mana bounce

If you think you are going to run into decks that will shut you down 2nd or 3rd turn, may I recommend the following...

Mainboard:

With the amount of Eldrazi/Tron, 5c/4c and even 3c decks running around our old friend Blood Moon may have to make a reappearance.

Sideboard:

Spicy Tech:

If your feeling it perhaps look at getting rid of the two Dispel and shifting to two Swan Song. The song does give them a 2/2 Flyer, but if your going to go off and just needed to counter something a little more broad then just an instant, this is a GREAT choice.

Pieces of the Puzzle > Uncovered Clues, since it digs 1 deeper, its a bonus that it fills the grave for Logic Knot & Snapcaster Mage - and in my humble opinion revealing the cards that are put in the grave doesn't give any additional information, even if done before they enter the graveyard.

Anyway, thanks for the effort!

Bit different from normal build. Postmortem Lunge is bit odd, i don't really see reason for it. If game goes that long you could cast it and storm on same turn you likely can just Storm without creature.

Inferno Titan In sideboard seems very strange for the deck that wants to win on T3.

You don't really need 8 creatures, some pros actually plays only 6.

So what i would do is: go down to 7 creatures, shave one Grapeshot and Postmortem Lunge.

And put in 1 or 2 Remands and Noxious Revival. Maybe some amount of Opts or Peeks

If you go fetchless you can also shave 1 land.

And for sideboard you want Pieces of the Puzzle to fight through gravehate. Also Wipe Away and Echoing Truth for leylines and Relics. Shatterstorm should change to Shattering Spree.

I don't really like Blood Moons either. Though if your local meta is full of Tron it is amazing.

Emperion combo is questionable, i would not go with it in competitive play.

Dragonstorm is fun but no.

There is my opinions

I need to pull out 11 more cards to make room for some new cards to help tutor and get my combos going. Cards, I'm going to drop are Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs, Zuran Spellcaster, Rootwater Hunter, Tidewater Minion, Implement of Examination, Pieces of the Puzzle. That's all I think I'll pull right now. After I get these swapped out, I'll take another look at em
