Slip Through Space Discussion

Something could be said for Telling Time being better than Taigam's Scheming, and that Thought Scour fuels delver and delve. Distortion Strike, Artful Dodge, and Slip Through Space offer a lot of tempo, count as 2 cards each most of the time and work better with delve and delver than Aqueous Form, and Turn Aside seems like it could just be a sideboard card only, or just replace it with Spell Pierce, as for upgrades later, Spellskite immediately comes to mind. And Yavimaya Coast is still pretty budget. I know like... the basic fetches are pretty poor, but Terramorphic Expanse in addition to Evolving Wilds will increase some mana consistency and again help with delve, then you could probably go up to 4 Hooting Mandrills and 3 Become Immense.

nice deck. I have a very similar one, built around the same creatures, basically.
Nice idea using Elusive Spellfist, I think I may steal that idea. =)
EDIT: here's the deck i use, btw. Flying Purple Pauper Eater

How about Slip Through Space instead of distortion strike? Sacrificing rebound for a draw isn't bad, since you probably plan on a t2/3 win.

Hey there! Sweet budget UR delver build! I have a few suggestions for you:
- Thing in the Ice Flip is better than Stormchaser Mage in my opinion, as it can block for a little bit before flipping and becoming both a board wipe and a finisher. Enigma Drake is also an option for this slot.
- I prefer Magma Spray over Forked Bolt as my 2-damage burn, as Dredge is such a large part of the Modern meta, and Spray can help shut off their main game plan.
- Apostle's Blessing is generally worth running as a 1- or 2-of, to both protect your threats and ensure that they can connect in the late game. Slip Through Space is also a great choice for the latter.
- With Opt becoming Modern-legal, Sleight of Hand gets a lot worse. I might even go as far as to say that Opt is strictly better.
In any case, I hope I helped! Enjoy your deck!

I would definitely cut some creatures. Vortex Elemental, Aeon Chronicler, Guardian of Tazeem, and Stormsurge Kraken don't have the synergy or efficiency you will want. Keep efficient token producers and utility creatures or combo pieces.
Kefnet works best when he can come out early and start racking up commander damage. I would put more focus onto the "return a land to your hand" part for added consistency. Walking Atlas and Patron of the Moon are both great cards on their own that can play off Kefnet well.
