Seat of the Synod Discussion

The land denial is a very valid option, just one I have personal dislike for. If your playgroup is more cutthroat or that's a strategy you enjoy then definitely throw that in.
I did consider Mox Diamond , it didn't make it in mostly due to initial budgetary reasons and may eventually make it in if I can find an FTV one for a non-insane price, although that extra mana rock hasn't been necessary.
Mox Opal I had not considered. I don't think my density of artifacts is high enough to consistently turn it on turn 1 or 2 where you really need it. I still don't think I do but I originally hadn't run the artifact lands nor the artifact tutors.
As I work on this would probably prioritize: Obtain WAR stuff > get the MagicFest plains & islands > finish foiling/promo(ing) the current list ( Minamo, School at Water's Edge , Cryptic Command , Chrome Mox , Mana Vault , Council's Judgment , Nimbus Maze , Seat of the Synod , Return to Dust ) > then pick up items like Mox Opal and Mox Diamond

Tried to add some more artifacts and some more firepower. I'm also thinking that these will pair well with Unwinding Clock (especially the Artifact Lands). Competitive Meter went from 76% to 78%.

Thanks for asking! You're all welcome to critique or ask any questions regarding this deck and I'll try to give some meaningful input.
Mnemonic Betrayal I feel like is more of a sideboard card that is incredibly powerful in the right meta. If it doesn't do much against decks you regularly play against feel free to drop it for the next most powerful card of your preference. It could be replaced by a cantrip, mana rock or a card draw engine like Sylvan Library if you continuously play against random opponents. You're right in that it's probably not worthy of being maindeck in this "stocklist". Otherwise you could use it as a flex splot for whatever card that works well in your meta like Verity Circle , Rhystic Study or Compost for instance.
Seat of the Synod is in the list to keep the singleton aspect of the manabase for Tainted Pact and enabling mox opal or niche Transmute Artifact synergies. If you play against cards like Null Rod a lot feel free to replace it with something that is more useful for you which could be for example Twilight Mire or Tarnished Citadel . Personally I don't like Tarnished Citadel due to heavy life loss which hurts your Bolas's Citadel and Ad Nauseam potential.

Me again, I am wondering about a couple of your card choices, mainly Mnemonic Betrayal and Seat of the Synod . I don’t understand what these cards do for the deck and would like to know the reasoning behind them.

Dude, I've gotta ask that you please stop running Crumbling Necropolis , Arcane Sanctum , and Undiscovered Paradise if possible. Any combination of Glimmervoid , Tolaria West , Academy Ruins , or the artifact lands ( Ancient Den , Seat of the Synod , Vault of Whispers , and Great Furnace ) would be so much better than a tapped land, especially when you're only running 28.

Looks pretty tight already. +1! I love "pinging" decks. =D
And maybe Copperhorn Scout ?

Hey there, have you considered running Trinket Mage cause it acts as a tutor for all your <=1 CMC artifacts and could also find artifact lands like Vault of Whispers , Seat of the Synod and Tree of Tales .
