what if you replaced Dimir Signet with Dimir Charm? this way you have something to transmute for instead of having to hard draw Thought Scour or Vapor Snag

I haven't played a deck like this, but if you have problems getting enough cards in your graveyard i would put in another Thought Scour and take out a Logic Knot. Really like the deck though +1

Saw you mention on Reddit you were after more instants/sorceries. Some suggestions:

Some good control in the form of more counterspells wouldn't hurt:

Also Hedron Crab

Seems like your deck is trying to be mill and fish at the same time though. If you wanna go mill, might be worth dropping most of the creatures that aren't milling or stopping you from dying. If you wanna go fish, forget about mill :)

Tobyha< To answer your question...

I feel like the cantrips Thought Scour, Serum Visions and Gitaxian Probe synergise better with Young Pyromancer and Taylor swiftspear. Also when I get around to activating Tasigur, the Golden Fang ability (T5+), at worse they can give me a cantrip. (which just draws me 1 card) Where as if I was running discard i run the chance of drawing it later in the game or getting it off a Tasigur activation. (discard is worse later in the game) (simply drawing a card is really powerful)

I think if i wanted to play Thoughtseize & Inquisition of Kozilek I would want to steer away from Monastery Swiftspear. This does not mean i wouldn't consider it.

I might look to include Thoughtseize over Monastery Swiftspear. But Im a bit worried the deck wont function as fluidly. (You want to be casting spells every turn to fuel Delve and trigger Young Pyromancer and Monastery Swiftspear)

Thanks for your Imput Ozomoto! I have been playtested this deck and wow... Thought Scour + Remand and the 8 Cantrips and 10 Fetch lands allow for you to cast Murderous Cut very~easliy ... Maybe there should be a split like 1 Dismember or Terminate & 1 Murderous Cut

Also remember Tasigur's ability potentially feeds the graveyard after turns 5+ onwards. So somtimes you want to delve away those useless Thought Scour and Gitaxian Probe AFTER you have a Tasigur online.

Think Twice just seems so much better than Thought Scour in control. 2 cards > 1 card. Although you could potentially screw your opponent, it seems unlikely.

for a second, i thought you were responding to my post, but then it was for shackles...but ya Thought Scour > Think Twice IMO...why just draw a card, why not potentially screw them up as well...

i personally like Thought Scour over Think Twice. nets you the same advantage for 1 less mana, no buyback, but with enough Snapcaster Mage in the deck, that buyback is semi meh. also targeting your opponent with Thought Scour could potentially act as a removal, I have personally experienced that myself on a handful of occasions.

definitely run Murderous Cut over the Dismember

also, cutting 1-2 counters and replacing with board wipes seems like a good idea.

as for the Lilys, they hold a special place in my heart, so i will be biased towards their inclusion
