Slip Through Space Discussion

There are a couple things I would change about this deck:
I think you run too many spells that just draw you cards. Rather than Reach Through Mists, consider Opt, Preordain, Slip Through Space, or any number of strictly better cards. Jace's Ingenuity is pretty inefficient, and is probably worth replacing as well.
You have a brutal curve, with far too many cards at the 5-12 mana mark. You should add more early game interaction, cutting some of the larger, more flashy cards.
You don't really have enough mill effects for Archive Trap to be efficient. You could consider adding Sphinx's Tutelage for more mill, but I do not recommend this. Based on my experience with the similar Nekusar, the Mindrazer, the added mill effects don't add much and generally do not lead to a victory.

You may consider Slip Through Space for the unblockable and a card draw for 1. Also a cheap card.

Thank you beakedbard, I took some of your suggestions and added them in. Namely added Slip Through Space in place of Run Amok and Wild Slash for Shock. I also agree with using Spell Pierce over Mana Leak

Personally i'd run Distortion Strike or Slip Through Space over Run Amok for better evasion at a cheaper cost. Wild Slash is a strictly better Shock. Also you are better having some form of 1cmc counter over Mana Leak something like Dispel or Spell Pierce because most of the time your counterspells are there to protect your creatures. Assault Strobe is also worth considering over Temur Battle Rage. Delver of Secrets Flip could maybe find room in here as well although he's not massively needed. I'm sure there's some other things I've missed I've been trying to get this deck running since Prowess first came out only problem is it loses hard to targeted discard unless you draw a god hand. I hope all of this helps.

Have you thought about infect creatures? there's a pauper deck that plays Glistener Elf, Blighted Agent and some other cheap infect dudes, then pumps them and makes them unblockable with cards like Slip Through Space.

If Elite Arcanist + Naban, Dean of Iteration , gets to exile and cast two mana stacked cards at once, then can one of these cards, as a copy spell, copy the other card? And does having two cards cast trigger Surge? Would surge have to be cast last every time?
For example. After getting my two creatures out I hand off Wizard's Lightning + Wizard's Retort . Everything seems good so far, a counter spell, followed by 3 damage, a true counter-strike spell for 3 colourless mana.
But when we try Overwhelming Denial + Unstable Footing , Do I get to cast my red spell, and target it if kicked, and then Surge into my counter spell target? Or will I be unable to use them in seperate order? Will my tap cast be too slow to cast two spells and still choose my targets? Can I spend 3 colourless to make sure my counter can't be countered and damage can't be prevented and further inflict 5 burn damage to target player for 3 additional colourless, for a total of 6?
I'm assuming Rebound doesn't work with him unless cast separately by hand due to exile portion of rebound? Copy goes poof?
So on to the third portion. Copying spells cast using the same tap/ability. When we combine Reverberate + Slip Through Space in a single tap, will I get two Slip Through Space? Giving me 2 unblockable targets and draw 2 cards for 3 colourless?
And what happens when Howl of the Horde + Twincast are paired up after an attack? How do they copy each other, should they, and what is the highest number of spell copies they can provide a follow up spell? Is it simply, that Howl of the Horde multiplies Twincast by 2? For 3 copies of target spell? And can that target then be Howl of the Horde for 6 future copies of a target follow up spell for a foundation of 5 colourless mana as a setup?
Can I combine Dispel + Wizard's Lightning without canceling my damage out? Can my counter spell be fizzled out to let my burn deal damage or will I not having a dispel target, prevent me from completing the tap?
Can I use a Lightning Bolt + Scatter to the Winds without any counter targets by just targeting my Lightning Bolt so that I can cast my Awaken at the end of a turn for 7 colourless even if my opponent cast no spells? And does Awaken work like Kicker as all colourless, or do I need a very specific mana type as specified on the Awaken cards?
Almost done. :) Does Kaho, Minamo Historian stack her exiled spells together in one mana shot or do they split in three? And if she got doubled by Naban, Dean of Iteration, would she have to cast all 6 at a time, 3 and 3 seperately, or can she cast them all individually?
Now... Mindswipe. So, if I were to copy this with the same target, the first spell would remove the target of the second the cancel out correct? Can I copy it for two mana using my second spell and then choose new targets for double if they try and counter my counter with their own? Or will the copy be too early and be unable to choose anything not by the first? What if there were already two instants out? In what situation would a double Mindswipe be possible?
Lastly, for spells like Cryptic Command, does copying it let you choose new versions of it or is the same choice made?
