Im also toying around with putting an Expedition Map in the deck, to grab the Riptide Laboratory, giving another layer of protection for Mizzix.

Hey! Thanks for the great list. I've recently taken out my old wizard tribal deck and started making it competitive.
Your list is quite optimized and I am having difficulty deciding which of the non-budget cards I have from my deck are worth including.
The options include:
Patron Wizard
Snapcaster Mage
Pact of Negation
Cryptic Command
Academy Ruins
Reliquary Tower
Minamo, School at Water's Edge
Riptide Laboratory

I have played the deck rather mid-range and am new to combo, so I'm not sure (despite being good) which of these cards are too slow. In addition, which cards of the list do you feel are most replaceable?

Firebones675 Awesome! Thank you. Mind Over Matter and Intruder Alarm are currently in the mail, and i will definitely be looking out for the utility wizards you mentioned.Riptide Laboratory+++

Looks pretty good but i think you might want to add in a few ways to sweep the board for when things get out of hand. Nevinyrral's Disk, Cyclonic Rift Ixidron and Boompile are probably your best bets out of monoblue.

Here are also a few other random suggestions.

Mind Over Matter +azami allows you to dig through your deck pretty quickly. (with somethink like Psychosis Crawler out it usually wins you the game even if you don't want to run Laboratory Maniac)

Arcanis the Omnipotent, Sower of Temptation, Magus of the Future, Vedalken AEthermage, Venser, Shaper Savant and Glen Elendra Archmage are good utility wizards

Riptide Laboratory is a good way to save your creatures from removal spells in a pinch, or to get continuous enter the battlefield effects like Archaeomancer.

Hope this helps!

Wow, this is super fun! It is very similar to a list I recently cooked up. I would have saved a lot of time if I had found yours first. Some of the similarities I like are:

I am surprised that you don't run Teferi's Protection . It has so many uses, not the least of which is playing Sen Triplets, playing Teferi's Protection , and then just waiting to open with Sen Triplets to combo off. I have used that trick a few times, but it is also amazing for getting through a board wipe, Fogging a huge attack, or even just rescuing a combo piece that is under attack.

As an additional suggestion, I am having a blast with Mechanized Production. I drop it on a manarock most commonly, and if nothing else, I get to ramp each turn before someone blasts it. If they don't deal with it, I get to win after a few turns. Just a suggestion if you are feeling like removing an infinite combo, you could replace it with an alternate wincon that advances your goals along the way.

Anyway, great deck! It is fun seeing someone develop similar ideas. I had the same thing happen with my Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control deck, and the cross pollination was extremely beneficial for development of that deck. If you are interested in checking out my Sen deck, here it is, Sente: The Politics and Metaphor of Stones. Check it out, give feedback as you see fit, and +1 for your deck from me.
