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:

  • First off, I'd recomment Cast Through Time, very fun especially with Swarm Intelligence.
  • Talrand, Sky Summoner provides aerial blockers and an alternate win condition in case you can't burn out your opponent.
  • Mizzix of the Izmagnus and Baral, Chief of Compliance are great for cost reduction of spells.
  • Nivix Guildmage is a great copy engine.
  • Guttersnipe helps with burning out your opponent.
  • Mnemonic Wall and Archaeomancer help get back your good spells.
  • The Mirari Conjecture does the same thing as the two above, but it's a saga.
  • Metallurgic Summonings helps with getting out chump blockers.
  • Jaya Ballard is a really great addition to the deck.
  • Finally, Precognition Field is good card filtering.
  • Now for instants and sorceries:

  • I would recommend Crush of Tentacles, as it's the perfect boardwipe for the deck.
  • I'm gonna recommend the burn spell Jaya's Immolating Inferno, it's a personal favorite.
  • Snap is great for double casting to trigger Jori En, Ruin Diver.
  • Scour from Existence, Rapid Hybridization, and Chaos Warp are great instant speed removal.
  • Pull from Tomorrow is an amazing card draw spell that fits the X cost theme.
  • Lastly, Beacon of Tomorrows allows for some easy infinite turns if you draw your whole deck (doable:Pull from Tomorrow copied a few times).
  • Now to recommend some cards to cut:

  • Brutal Expulsion is too expensive for a pretty weak effect, it's essentially an expensive version of a weaker Remand + Shock combo.
  • I would like to question your addition of Clockspinning, as it can really only be applied to 3-4 targets.
  • Fall of the Titans is not the greatest of burn spells. It might seem good, but you'll never be able to cast it at full potential, as playing it for its surge cost does require you to spend mana on another spell.
  • I'd recommend you cut Magma Spray, there's much better removal out there.
  • Refuse isn't that great because you have to get it into your graveyard to take advantage of its aftermath effects, that paired with the fact that its initial effect is pretty weak.
  • Turn is also rather weak in this format.
  • Aphetto Alchemist and Fatestitcher have very limited application here, it seems as if you run them just to support Echo Mage and Pyromancer's Goggles.
  • Pyromancer's Assault is too weak , too much of an investment without enough of a payout.
  • Honden of Infinite Rage and Honden of Seeing Winds could be cut as the floor is too low and the ceiling isn't high enough, you're only running two of them.
  • Touch of the Void is pretty much a sorcery speed 3 drop bolt.
  • Teleportal can be cut seeing as you don't have many creatures that you'll be attacking with. The two you do have, Hypersonic Dragon and Sphinx of the Final Word already have flying.
  • Serpentine Spike is way too expensive. It is indeed a 3 for one, but that's at best for 7 mana. I'd recommend you just use a red boardwipe along the lines of Blasphemous Act.
  • Recoup doesn't do a whole lot, and it's debatably bad.
  • Processor Assault should be cut and replaced with Flame Slash. Flame Slash is half the mana for one less damage, and there's no additional cost.
  • Master the Way - I'm sorry, but that's just not a good card.
  • It'd be a good idea to replace Hanweir Battlements with Reliquary Tower, as Hanweir Battlements is really just a haste enabler here.
  • Crumble to Dust is not a really great card in a singleton format, and it can be replaced with Pillage.
  • Total suggestions: 24 Total suggested cuts: 18 ; As an extra side question, what's the purpose of all the exile?

    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 think Abrade would be better than Lightning Strike, since the win condition it's a OTK, so Abrade deal with threats like Heart of Kiran and Aethersphere Harvester, which Lightning Strike don't.

    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.

    • Merchant Scroll is another tutor. tutors are always good. Don't forget that you can also run Long-Term Plans as a decent tutor as well.

    • 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).

    • Jaya Ballard seems cool but not right for htis deck. If your commander was Maelstrom Wanderer and you were playing that kind of storm deck, I would be more inclined. But I don't think she fits here.

    • 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.

    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!
