Spell Pierce Discussion

Here's how I would start on a midrange blue deck with focus on your favourite sphinx. I tried not to bring any cards that only allow for looking at the topcard, and apart from that just quality blue dudes. Plan for the deck is to stay alive (and it might need more and better stay-alive cards) until some kind of card machine starts rolling - either Magus of the Future og sphinx + top-deck-spying.
Creatures - 18
Spells - 20
Lands - 22

Hey man ! Really like the deck, I made one really similar to your. I also had a hard time versus control, the extra creatures with Cryptic Serpent help a lot.
I don't think Drake Haven is good here, turn 3 you have other thing to do other than tap out to play something that doesn't do anything and later, meh. Chart a Course is nice I think, you can drop a useless instant/sorcery to boost your creatures. Pull from Tomorrow is similar at instant speed. Also, I'm not a big fan of Spell Pierce, there is no big threat early game, I would drop them and go up two Negate instead maybe.

Here's my recommendations:
I forgot about Prowess.

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.

I don't think you have enough wizards for Wizard's Lightning. Some other cards to consider instead are Lava Spike, Needle Drop, and maybe Rift Bolt. The latter is nice because you cast it on the turn after you pay for it, so you can get a bigger Storm chain going. Take my advice with a grain of salt, though, I've never played with Storm myself, haha.
I don't think buddy lands are good for this, but I personally really like check lands, and fast lands work great with fast decks like this, too. You also have significantly less blue spells than you do red, so once you add nonbasics, consider running less islands than mountains, or, depending on how many nonbasics you have, skipping islands altogether (or perhaps just one or two in case you get hit with a Ghost Quarter).
