Creature — Human Wizard
When Treasure Mage enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an artifact card with converted mana cost 6 or greater, reveal that card, and put it into your hand. If you do, shuffle your library.

rothgar13 it has been better than you might think. You can tutor it up with Treasure Mage and it triggers Sanctum of Ugin which let's you go grab Colossus (which are almost guaranteed to be free at this point) and immediately swing with flying vigilant 10/10s. With all of the ramp in this deck it isn't terribly difficult to cast. It is certainly clunky and not cheap, but if I have the mana to cast it on turn 4-5 that is often fast enough to win a game of Modern. If nothing else it prompts a fast scoop from my opponent just after them telling me how janky or dumb the deck is ;)
What I described is the total nut draw combo win, so I acknowledge that doesn't happen very often. With that said I'll need to try some games with different alternatives though to see how it plays. Thanks!

I'm not the biggest fan of Akroma's Memorial either, to be honest with you. It's a clunky artifact that you can't really cheat into play. And I'd be surprised if you can only get one Colossus in play - between Treasure Mage and Sanctum of Ugin, you have plenty of tutors.

I forgot to mention, between low block potential and very high cmc, all 3 bolas cards are too slow and only really get one activation for soo much mana
But what ive noticed as i put money into the deck is it does best when played like storm, casting rocks and rituals and a pain spell and then chaining wheels for spike damage, the cumulative upkeep stuff is rather slow and really draws hate from opponents before you can kill them, and you are forcefeeding draw but you dont necessarily want them to use the cards you let them draw,
Price of Knowledge is ok, but in order to achieve the speed for storm, its really hard on the mama base, the only card above 6 cmc i run in mine is Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, and i never cast them they're only as a more useful Library of Leng
On top of being able to chain wheels after sticking a 1-4 cmc pain enchantment like Liliana's Caress Underworld Dreams or a discard/draw/combo engine 4-6 cmc like Dream Halls, Waste Not Rhystic Study, playing dimir colors means you have access to the best tutors for wheels and graveyard recursion, ive found that filling my graveyard by discarding wheels as a massive secondary hand and then either resetting the mill with the eldrazi titan while milling opponents out often removes the need for Library of Leng, but its a good card to learn the deck in the sense it teaches you what you want to keep or discard during wheels, plus if you have 50 cards in graveyard casting a Yawgmoth's Will or Mizzix's Mastery usually wins me the game with either 300-500 burst damage or decking opponents
Theres plenty of budget ways to recast wheels and other important spells from the graveyard you usually can fill up relatively fast
Non budget versions would be
Tutors really help you with getting the enchantments, protection or wheels you need to gain the lead, ill start with budget
Better but more expensive options

hetwiel Hey! I love seeing another Talrand user. You should cut the following...
Gifts Ungiven - banned
Its more than 15 cards so you can decide which one or 2 you want to save. A lot of them are just bad or don't support you as much as other cards can.
If you want some more ideas, feel free to check out my deck Tisk Tisk Talrand for a competitive version of Talrand

I think you should cut Mox Opal because it doesn't have any converted mana cost count towards colossus. I like you idea of Jund colors. If you are sticking with green then play Ancient Stirrings but blue provides Glint-Nest Crane, Treasure Mage, and good card draw. Those are just a few ideas.

Treasure Mage doesn't search out a single thing in th deck...
Unfortunately, Sower of Temptation doesn't give the stolen creature haste, so unless I have a sac outlet the second stolen one won't do much.
Simic Manipulator is super interesting though, because with Inalla I can stack the trigger so I copy it before evolve resolves and get 2 counters from that 1 card. That seems good.
Thanks for the though and consideration Talonisnthavingit!
