You need some card draw :O

Read the Bones, Tidings, Concentrate, Sign in Blood

And some graveyard stuff!

Cemetery Reaper, Zombie Apocalypse, Gisa and Geralf, Cemetery Recruitment, Victimize, and Living Death might be a good field wipe for ya.

I feel like Storm the Vault would be a good addition. Your deck could get this card flipped very quickly and the mana boost it adds is huge.

I'm not a fan of Tidings as there is better card draw out there for blue. For example Reverse Engineer may be 1 less card but a much better fit cmc wise.

However, if your willing to explore other card draw options I'm a huge fan of Jace Beleren. Consistent Blue card draw is always nice.

lagotripha - More card draw was one thing I was considering, but idk if I should just add some more Divination or add new cards. I was maybe thinking Blue Sun's Zenith. Tidings is also obviously really good value for its cost, but 5 mana sorcery doesn't look appealing to me. I like Opportunity better. As for Think Twice, I really don't know how I feel about this card. It seems odd to me, and when I look at it, I don't think it's amazing. But I do know that people run it, and I can see why. The split mana cost can be very good, but then I look at it again, and see a 5 mana draw 2. But then I see synergy with Mana Leak and Dissolve, as they share mana costs. I've never tried the card before, but I'll definitely try it out now.

I think you should shoot for more card draw and cut some of the mana rocks. Low cost draw spells like Read the Bones Night's Whisper and Telling Time can help you hit land drops and gain card advantage for chromiums ability and higher cost stuff like Opportunity Deep Analysis and even Tidings (if you don't mind the sorcery speed) can ensure you can constantly fuel chromium. Some graveyard interaction could also be nice, to ensure you aren't wasting the things you discard. Crystal Shard could also be a nice way to protect chromium when you can't discard. Its nice to be able to save him, then recast him with flash without inflating his mana cost. I also recommend Batwing Brume for the memes

Dumgoldfish124 - Haha don't worry, when I first saw Tidings I thought it was broken, but then I noticed the sorcery speed.

As for Spell Snare, I haven't had much experience with it, as I've never played against it, or with it. But knowing the big 2 drops in modern, cough Tarmogoyf cough Dark Confidant cough Snapcaster Mage... It would probably be impactful. I personally wouldn't play it however, because just the feeling of having a counterspell in your hand, that CAN'T hit the thing you want to counter, just feels awful. But 2 drops are very powerful in modern, so I'd definitely say it wouldn't be insanity to try it out. If you do, tell me how it goes!

LumpyMilk I didn't notice that Tidings was sorcery speed, now I feel stupid. Thanks for pointing that out! Also, I know it is situational, but what do you think about Spell Snare? Personally, I like due to the great disruption to tempo it causes to the opponent.

Dumgoldfish124 - Tidings is also sorcery speed, and I'd rather not use up an entire turn drawing cards. I'd rather keep mana open so I can take the Opportunity on their endstep to draw. Worth the 1 extra mana IMO.

As for the situational counterspells like Disdainful Stroke and Ceremonious Rejection, they're just too narrow for my liking, and I like having as versatile of a deck as possible. Plus if need be, I could always just Dissolve any big bad boys they try and cast. Of course this is just my personal preference, and if your meta is full of Eldrazi/Tron, stuff like Ceremonious Rejection would be great.

As for Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, I would definitely have him in the sideboard, but I am trying to keep all cards under $1, just for bragging rights. He would definitely be worth the investment otherwise, especially if you're in a control heavy meta. Same for Nezahal, Primal Tide instead of Inkwell Leviathan. This of course is my version of the deck, and not everyone is as picky as me, so feel free to try whatever you think would work better :)
