AKBZ on Infinite Eternities That Also Last A Long Time

What are your thoughts on these cards? Search for Azcanta  Flip, Cephalid Coliseum, Soldevi Excavations. I imagine the first does not impact enough, the second might be ok, and the third is a bit awkward for what you want. I guess I'm looking for confirmation on these. Also, in our meta we are allowed sideboards. What would you recommend for taking out when sideboarding? The top five under performers would be fine.

Considering dropping Mystifying Maze, Mirrorpool, Inventors' Fair, and Soldevi Excavations in favor of basic islands so High Tide is more appealing. Don't recall ever having used Academy Ruins as well so may take that out as well and Maze of Ith is tough to spot in as I need every ounce of mana I can get and would never play that over a mana producing land unless I had none in my hand (in which case I would it rather be an Island in almost every instance).

Have you considered Soldevi Excavations or Sylvan Library? They're pretty great ways to consistently manipulate the top of your deck. Survivor of the Unseen can also get pretty out of hand, but she gets expensive pretty quick. Halimar Depths is a great way to get a quick fix, and it only takes up a land slot.

Soldevi Excavations, Halimar Depths and Blighted Cataract are good lands to have.

A couple of my personal favorite voltron equipments are Loxodon Warhammer and Sword of Vengeance. I think they'd be good additions as both help keep you alive while pushing your game plan.

Interesting deck. Spellbook is a waste of a card slot. Maybe Amulet of Vigor with Thawing Glaciers for ramp.

Minamo, School at Water's Edge + Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for more ramp.

Soldevi Excavations not quite ramp but very cool old scry land.

I'm a little curious on what your overall win conditions with this deck are. Baral himself isn't going to be swinging in for lethal commander dmg anytime soon and while you have lots of counters, there isn't much that you are doing besides preventing people from playing the game. Maybe throw in some cards like Control Magic, Acquire, Blatant Thievery, Bribery and Treachery. Throw in Talrand, Sky Summoner so you can get some lethal dmg in with a ton of drakes. Other helpful cards may be Propaganda and Copy Enchantment to help prevent people from attacking you and the latter for utility if theres a good enchantment on the battlefield. I also feel that you don't have enough artifacts to justify metalurgic summonings for its second ability but the first one is decent enough to get small creatures. Also since you have a ton of ways to prevent people form doing things you could throw in a Jace, the Mind Sculptor as a possible win con, this would work well in 1v1 but in multiplayer it'd be a bit harder to pull off. Other good cards that you may want to consider since you are playing blue and especially counterspells are Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Diluvian Primordial, Soldevi Excavations, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Journeyer's Kite, Solemn Simulacrum, Mimic Vat, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Gilded Lotus, Consecrated Sphinx, Thassa, God of the Sea, Telepathy. Many of these options give some much needed mana ramp to blue and with the inclusion of the gauntlet and caged sun one blue land can be double or triple the mana so you only need one for each enchantment

Thanks Penthoplayer for the suggestions. Time Stop is getting more and more appealing in my meta. I love Soldevi Excavations I'm going to have to look in to picking one up in the future.
