maybe Taigam's Scheming ? cool deck, i had wondered if anyone was going to try to make it happen.

Pteramander would probably be a good addition to this deck and maybe sideboard 1 or 2 (maybe even 3) Crackling Drake . Also what are your thoughts of Taigam's Scheming and Contingency Plan .

Contingency Plan and Taigam's Scheming don't actually cantrip, but they can stack the deck very effectively. But, I think the closest you'll get to Faithless Looting is probably Ideas Unbound .

Against noncreature decks, maybe Alhammarret, High Arbiter would work.

Ziusdra on Storm Crow is a Win-Con - Lazav

I love this deck, but I don't think Vector Asp works the way you want it to. Since its name is in its infect ability, Lazav won't gain infect, if I am interpreting the cards correctly.

Also, at a glace, it doesn't seem like there is enough hand-cycling to get the creatures you want in your graveyard out of your hand, but I haven't played this deck so I can't be sure. How does it work out? I would think you'd need a couple more cards that allow you to rummage so that you can get the big boys out of your starting hand and into your graveyard. (I only see three cards that let you do this ( Merfolk Looter , Ancient Excavation , and Sift )... but maybe that is enough? I'm just gonna mention Jace's Archivist , Zephyr Scribe , and Dark Deal to help you do this--two of those cards also disrupt other players' hands, great to play/activate after a player has just tutored. Taigam's Scheming is also a mention, as it is effectively a Surveil 5 at sorcery speed without the keyword, but honestly I think the deck probably does this well enough. I wouldn't know without playing around it myself. But I love this deck, so I think I will :)

Armored Skaab seems kinda weak for what you’re trying to do here. Maybe you could replace it with Taigam's Scheming ? That card would help you fill your graveyard faster or help you fix your future draws

I think that it should, if in your testing you find that its not you can include some number of Contingency Plan and/or Taigam's Scheming .

you'll be casting hand disruption and other cantrips pretty often so your graveyard will naturally will fill itself, but this deck is pretty taxing on your yard so it's just going to take testing to figure it out.

1) Not a fan of infinite combos!

1a and 3) I originally put in Mnemonic wall/ Dream stalker but because they arent Wizard or Human, I took them out. This is because I put in Path of Ancestry for scrying.

2) Yup, originally had it in and I took it out because I'd thought 1 was enough. On this idea, should I be going for the Wincon 1 combo all the time?

3)Darting merfolk only bounces herself so she has less versatility than the Shrieking Drake or Dream Stalker. The idea I had originally was for my commander to be the main target of bounce/flicker effects.

4)Although bouncing is good, I suppose you mean this combo must be paired with the Peregrine Drake? I guess I could see it as a way to stall the game. At the end of the day, my main wincon is to mill the opponents out.

5)I thought it would be interesting to put in a cantrip that is mill-themed haha. I'd opt for Opt instead because its instant speed and I dont have copies of serum visions/preordain.

I have Secrets of the Golden City already inside. However, instead of the traditional Counsel of the Soratami/ Divination, I used Vision Skeins , Words of Wisdom because they are at instant speed, and helps in the game plan a little. I also used Taigam's Scheming , Contingency Plan , Sift , Strategic Planning , Compulsive Research because they help to run through my deck faster, and also has a discard clause for Delirium trigger.
