Hey, I was looking over this list, would Laboratory Maniac/Demonic Consultation/Tainted Pact combo fit? it is 3 two card combos in 3 cards, and it is great with the amount of card advantage this deck can acquire!

If you are concerned because of the landbase not supporting Tainted Pact, drop down to one basic of each type and then add:

1x Tarnished Citadel

1x Snow-Covered Island

1x Snow-Covered Swamp

1x Gemstone Mine

1x Gemstone Caverns

1x Exotic Orchard

1x River of Tears

1x Reflecting Pool

1x Darkslick Shores

1x Darkwater Catacombs

1x Cephalid Coliseum

These will replace the 11 you dropped, and for what else I would consider dropping, Vapor Snag could be easily dropped for Chain of Vapor, or Unsubstantiate, either way I think it would be an upgrade.

Consign probably could be dropped for a Delay, or any Unsubstantiate, Spell Pierce, Chain of Vapor, or like anything else, I understand it has discard too, but I don't think that is worth it.

What do you think?

You're welcome TKDbeast! I also forgot to mention Supreme Will when I was talking about digging cards and ways to recur them. To answer your other questions,

  1. Gifts Ungiven helps me get whatever I need at the moment. Am I short on blue mana? Ill get an Island, Snow-Covered Island,Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, etc. Do I have enough mana for Mindslaver lock and I have Academy Ruins on board, then I'll grab Mindslaver! It's one of those cards that is very useful for card advantage and can help me either close the gap or widen it even more.
  2. That choice is up to personal preference. Most Mono-Blue Tron Decks run about 7-9 creatures to make room for more spells and such, some people up to 11 creatures. I've talked to people that have cut out the mages for Fabricate since they both can be played only during your turn and it can be used again by Snapcaster Mage. But me personally I don't like to go below 7 or 8 creatures. It is true that they die to kill spells and can't be used again with Snapcaster Mage but, with the cheap cost it does help to get some early creature board presence. Same thing with Walking Ballista. Sure you can save him and make him huge later but other times it's just better to make a 1/1. You can grow him later or snipe something early and get him back with Academy Ruins.

Also Extraplanar Lens with Snow-Covered Island is just disguising in mono colored decks, especially if you protect it from being blown up with counters. I went and looked up the land for you btw, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds

Quick tip I learned: when playing Extraplanar Lens, use basic snow lands like Snow-Covered Islands. Then, if an opponent taps an Island, then they’re not also getting the extra mana.

One other idea; you could do all Snow-Covered Mountain and Snow-Covered Island and throw in an Extraplanar Lens so you're the only one benefiting from the mana. It would definitely increase the price of the deck, but it's a thought.

Why Familiar's Ruse with a super low creature count, and no token gen or swarm? is there a reason for Snow-Covered Island or just like the snow covered?(they do look sweet)

My favorite bird is Rimefeather Owl. Switch your basics for Snow-Covered Plains and Snow-Covered Islands, and you've got yourself one large bird. Although it actually pairs better with Rimescale Dragon and Training Grounds, so...

...and my tribal-bird deck is a pauper deck, so there's no good common to suggest from there; especially since you've already included Augury Owl.

Cavern of Souls! Cavern of Souls is a card that would boost this deck!

Oh yeah... budget.

with Extraplanar Lens you could run Snow-Covered Island so only you can benefit from it.

Also I wouldn't run Dread Statuary, Blighted Cataract, and/ or Zoetic Cavern; lands shouldn't be sac-ed by your commander because you are not ramping also if you do sac a land to get a "big boy" and it gets destroyed right off the bat then you're a creature and a land down...

Blue must have counter spells Arcane Denial, Disallow and Counterspell! Dream Fracture is one of those fyi.

Other things I would recommend Chasm Skulker, Consecrated Sphinx, Blightsteel Colossus, Kederekt Leviathan, and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur.
