The Mirari Conjecture Discussion

Here are my personal recommendations (with help from n8dm) for cards to add and cut from the deck. Let me know if you have any questions about cuts or recommendations.
Let's start with permanents:
Now for instants and sorceries:
Now to recommend some cards to cut:

To BlazingAbsol, thanks for all the great suggestions.
I've done some testing and The Mirari Conjecture is rockstar in my revamped build.
I'm sure how I feel about Abrade over Lightning Strike. Against decks that have life gain Lightning Strike it is invaluable. And against dedicated artifact decks Abrade doesn't feel like enough. I'll have to study the meta more thoroughly to decide which is better overall.
Now that I've put in The Mirari Conjecture Strategic Planning has gotten a lot stronger, not only because the cards go to the graceyard but also it's a sorcery. I won't be switching it for Anticipate.
Keep the suggestions coming and good luck with your brews!

Thanks BlazingAbsol for the vote. I haven't had a chance to test out The Mirari Conjecture. I'll definitely try it out. Baral, Chief of Compliance might be ok. I'm not sure how well He'll do in this shell but I'm willing to explore.
I've been contemplating swapping out 1 Abrade for 1 Lightning Strike. I don't want to take out all my lightning strikes because they are game winning. There are a lot of games where my opponent gains life and I have to knock them down to 20 with lightning strike to finish them off with Fight with Fire. As for the Abrade By Force swap you may be right on the money.
Strategic Planning has been great to me. It makes my deck run so much smoother. I personally like it more than Opt for the card selection. I do have light graveyard interaction with Flood of Recollection. I still might switch it with Anticipate when the next set drops.
Nezahal, Primal Tide looks pretty sweet I'm going to find a spot for him.

This seems like the kind of deck that would love The Mirari Conjecture. Have you done testing with it? Also, Baral, Chief of Compliance might be sweet in the sideboard. Wait until they've taken out all their removal, then side him in.
I think Abrade is better than Lightning Strike, especially since your main/only win condition is copying a kicked Fight with Fire--3 damage to your opponent's face doesn't really do much. That would also let you cut By Force from the sideboard for something more versatile.
How has Strategic Planning been for you? Since you don't have any graveyard synergies, I'd think a different cantrip would be better.
Finally, if you're looking for another resilient win condition for the sideboard, you could try Nezahal, Primal Tide. Super hard for your opponent to kill with all of your carddraw.

I love the idea of this deck! I'm testing frenetically right now. Thank you for posting this!
My two cents:
I don't like Cancel in this deck. For a counter it's too slow. On the draw you need something to counter threats like Steel Leaf Champion, Thrashing Brontodon. I think Censor or Essence Scatter would be better, not sure which yet though. 4+ res creatures it's really hard to deal with this deck, that's why I suggested Abrade, Censor and Essence Scatter because I don't think Hour of Devastation alone is enough to deal with them.
I never reached Ascend, so I think replace Secrets of the Golden City for more Champion of Wits would be better because Champion of Wits can chump block in times of need and the Eternalize is really a powerful effect that can help find the combo to finish the match. And if you discard a Instant/Sorcery you can take it back with The Mirari Conjecture anyways.
I don't know if I losing something here, but I found As Foretold useless in this deck. On the play it's too slow and on the draw you lose much tempo and almost never recover.
About the sideboard, I don't know... maybe a Baral, Chief of Compliance against control decks? I didn't test against control decks yet.

I mean sure, have Primal Amulet Flip flipped and put down The Mirari Conjecture, but relying on that leaves yourself open to be gutted by removal. If they can destroy artifact/enchantment, it seems like it’d be hard to bounce back.

Out of your maybeboard, my thoughts are:
The Mirari Conjecture seems too slow and difficult to control. you want to make sure that you combo off the turn you double all your spells, but then it really obiviously advertises to everybody that that is what you're doing. And if you want good repeatable graveyard recursion, Charmbreaker Devils is the way to go.
Bonus Round seems interesting when used in the right circumstances. Against permanent heavy decks it seems bonkers. Against other spell slinger decks you prbably want to have a Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir in play.
Elixir of Immortality is ok I guess. It's good in colours that don't have much recursion, but don't you want stuff in your graveyard to help fuel stuff like Past in Flames or Treasure Cruise/Dig Through Time (run Treasure Cruise/Dig Through Time).
Will Kenrith seems cool as a commander or decent in a Teferi Chain Veil stax deck (albeit how expensive he is) but again, I don't think he's right here. Play him, -2 him twice and that's it. Would prefer to just play Jace's Ingenuity for cards.
As a general rule, you should also NEVER assess a planeswalker for a deck based on their ult. It's bad form and you end up running a bunch of clunky cards on the off chance you could do something with them.
- Spellseeker just seems good. Run her.

Thank you for you comment Skjoldschoennemann!
The Mirari Conjecture... That is actually a very good fit and synergizes with the deck.
I will think on this tanks!
