QHero The deck is centered around Trail of Evidence and Mechanized Production. That might change your comments :)

I think that you're placing too much on that single copy of Torrential Gearhulk. You should probably run it as a playset, and if you're looking for cards to cut I would recommend Pull from Tomorrow and Magma Spray. Magma Spray can be put in the sideboard while Pull from Tomorrow can't be flashed back to any effect with Torrential Gearhulk. I also feel that Trail of Evidence is largely unnecessary with the amount of draw spells that you're running. Running playsets of the best counterspells is probably a better idea than running a hodgepodge of different counterspells also. It does seem to me that you're running UR Control deck with a gimmicky twist, so I do like that.

I think Trail of Evidence would be a great addition here.

I would take out all Daring Sleuth  Flip and add 1 trial and more control elements, as you dont realy need the sleuth for your gameplan

If you're going to do an investigate deck, then I would focus in on that and drop a lot of the stuff that doesn't help achieve that. Lone Rider  Flip, Ulvenwald Captive  Flip, Ulvenwald Hydra, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Heron's Grace Champion, and even Duskwatch Recruiter are cards that could be dropped. If you do you can go up to the full amount of Tireless Tracker (when you get them), Graf Moles, Bygone Bishop, Confront the Unknown, Ulvenwald Mysteries, and another Journal and Patrol. To make the deck more consistent and sleek you should drop a lot of the 1 ofs as well like Traverse, Trail of Evidence, and Fleeting Memories.

Modern also has some pretty cheap mana fixing to help your deck like Glacial Fortress, Sunpetal Grove, Lumbering Falls, Stirring Wildwood, and Seaside Citadel.

Since a lot of your cards are 3 drops like Tracker, Mole, Bishop, you should add a playset of mana dorks to help accelerate. Birds of Paradise is going to get you the most bang for your buck but if that's still too expensive then you could do something as simple as Elvish Mystic.

Lastly you're gonna want some number of removal spells. Path to Exile is the best removal spell in these colors but if that is too expensive then you might have to settle for something like Journey to Nowhere.

Hope this helps!

After some thought, I have added Trail of Evidence. There are very many instant and sorcery cards being cast and the more cards drawn the better.

Maybe add some removal and counterspells? Magma Spray, Supreme Will and the like? I'd take out Fleeting Memories and Trail of Evidence for those. Also, I don't think you need so many finishers, maybe take out Breaker of Armies for Sweltering Suns or Radiant Flames.

I might remove the Thraben Inspectors and replace them with two Oketra the Trues for those reasons, redknight44. If I have Oketra, the Aven Wind Guide, and Odric out, all my creatures will have flying + vigilance + double strike + indestructible. The Inspectors are there mostly to give something early for Ulvenwald Mysteries to work with, but I think the Trail of Evidence will hold up in pulling out some clues.
