@ Dete So, talked to a buddy of mine regarding the Manabase and recommended me to cut 3 of My Island and 1 Faerie Conclave taking the median between your Suggestions I'd test the deck with 21 total Lands cutting 2 Islands and 1 Man-Land.

Regarding you Card recommendations, I actually have a Playset of Supreme Will which I could try, I just didn't include it in my first draft because it seemed to slow. Am I underestimating Supreme Will?

And Echoing Truth Seems a little odd, as I can't even think of a common Matchup where I'd want to Sideboard it in yet alone maindeck it, could you give me insight toward what archetype you like using it against?

And last but not Least, @ xyr0s recommended Nimble Obstructionist which sounds great and seems like it might be better than Supreme Will (Having a Similar amount of Flexibility) as well as possibly being better than Spire Golem now that I reduced the amount of Islands. What do you think about Nimble Obstructionist @ Dete?

as far as i know the only phyrexian mana spell banned was Gitaxian Probe and for the mana base, i think since your most expensive spell is the Cryptic Serpent and Spire Golem and cost less with everything you play 21-22 lands seems like the amount you would need, Supreme Will might be a nice flexible card for your needs, Echoing Truth is a card i like for some match ups.

@ xyr0s I could see Nimble Obstructionist being better than the two Spire Golem as they serve similar purposes but the Nimble Obstructionist has that neat cycling trick up its sleeve which sounds fun to use so I'll see if I can get my hands on a pair of those.

Now, regarding the Land situation, I have serious Issues evaluating the Cantrip-Land ratio Thing. I once heard that for every two Cantrips you can cut one Land but find that a little odd to implement. Could you recommend me an amount of Lands to run and how you changed your calculations based on the Cantrips?

@ Dete thanks for pointing out the probe thing I wasn't aware of that. and Cryptic serpent does sound awesome and considering its an uncommon from a recent set it should be easy to get so I'm totally replacing the Gitaxian Probe with Peek and maybe the Tempest Djinn and one of the Spire Golem for two Cryptic Serpent.

On a side note, did any of the Other Cards for Phyrexian Mana get Banned? I always found them quite powerful because you could use them in decks that didn't have their colour, especially Gut Shot and Dismember as well as that one Imp artifact Creature or the Spellskite.

Vodalian Arcanist and Sparring Construct seem to be weaker than the rest of the deck. Perhaps try Siren Stormtamer and Spire Golem

Preordain can get rid of cards that you don't want, where as with Brainstorm you have to draw the cards that you put back on top. the deck has a very high chance of flipping delver even without Brainstorm: about 41.5% for a blind-flip, plus 9 cards that manipulate the top of your library. This means that Preordain is superior because it can smooth your draws better. If you really want to play extra copies there are 4 flex-spots - the Vapor Snags and the Spire Golems. In a vacuum Brainstorm might would be better but I think these are favored in the current meta.

MrLinuxFish I'm not sure what some of the creatures in the list are doing for you.. It seems like a spell of a similar mana cost or something to protect Talrand would almost always be preferable. Specifically I think Cloud of Faeries, Myr Sire, Slither Blade, Spire Golem, and Stormbound Geist are prime targets for cuts as they don't really do anything and their bodies just aren't that relevant. Especially when you consider that you could just be getting an incidental 2/2 flyer for free by casting a draw spell or something.
