Swarm Intelligence Discussion

With HOU do you think Swarm Intelligence would be a good addition?

Thanks DrukenReaps for upvote and comment!
I've been speaking about Jhoira in earlier comments (see archive). Mage and Maginess?? won't fit into deck since I want to keep it low with creatures and letting in only my pet cards. Ral Zarek would be nice include with Krark's Thumb, but as mentioned before, deck is low on creatures which means Planeswalkers will get stomped.
In terms of spells, Indomitable Creativity might actually find place in this deck. Mind's Dilation is in testing phase, it works really nice with Vial Smasher, however it has high CMC, gonna see after more testing.
Hive Mind was in first version of this deck, but got replaced with Curse of Echoes that also was later replaced. It is crazy, but it too often ends bad for me. Swarm Intelligence was considered, but can't find anything worth excluding to put it in.

Wow. There is a lot of insanity here, love it. I'm afraid I probably won't have much to add to this... But here it goes.
Jhoira of the Ghitu- great chaos card and allows for some extremely crazy turns if you set up right. You could have your biggest and craziest spells all come out in the same turn lol.
Ral Zarek- The only planeswalker that seems very chaosy.
Swarm Intelligence- cause why not?
Clone Legion- you don't have many creatures but maybe your opponents do?

Swarm Intelligence and Mirari for copying spells. Archaeomancer can allow you to reuse your instants and sorceries, especially with a kicked Rite of Replication, allowing you to get the Rite back and up to 4 other spells from your graveyard. Similar value can be had with Clone Legion, especially if an opponent has a creature that can recur the spell, like the Archaeomancer or Eternal Witness. Fork, Reverberate, and Reiterate are great for copying your bigger spells, sometime twice with Kess if you have the mana. Turnabout and Mana Geyser can get you the mana you need to help cast some of your bigger spells with fork effects, especially if you have Swarm Intelligence and/or the Mirari. Drain Power can be used similarly but it also taps your opponents down, which you can use with the Mana Geyser to make more mana. If just tapping down your opponents is what you care about, Mana Short is a non-ramping version of Drain Power.

Suggestions to put in:
Glimpse the Unthinkable, Breaking, Mind Sculpt, Shriekhorn, Tome Scour, Remand, possibly some way to make your opponent search their library like Ghost Quarter, and place Twincast on your hedron crab.
Your current list will never get anywhere near a win while waiting for all the mana to cast those useless creatures.
Check out my profile page for many mill variants and ideas.

I know Cloven Casting is flavorful for multicolored reasons but Swarm Intelligence does the same thing without needing it to be multi colored (you have quite a bit of mono-colored sorceries) AND without mana to copy. If only one of the two are to be included, the latter seems like the slam dunk choice imo.

Swarm Intelligence seems like a fun way to go as a 1 of inclusion. Maybe two of?

No, it would not.
Metallurgic Summonings's ability triggers when a spell is cast. On the other hand, Swarm Intelligence copies spells, which means that the copy is put directly onto stack and is not cast. Therefore, the copy created by Intelligence would not creature an additional Construct from Summonings.
