Vapor Snag Discussion

Your curve is too high also you shouldn't be using 28 lands. I'd put kn some Lightning Bolts or Shocks maybe Vapor Snag I'd also remove Clout of the Dominus with only a few creatures in the deck they'll offten be dead cards

I'll give Kiln Fiend a shot, altough I have a hard time making space. I don't want to lose one drops (even though the 1/2 wizards are objectively bad) because I feel the deck needs them to gain tempo.
I'll try 2 fiends, 3 chasers and 3 splitters and I'll update from there!

Happy to help. Although I agree you may need more instant/sorceries. Thing in the Ice Flip relies on instants and sorceries to transform. you have a lot of enchantments, no doubt to increase Devotion. I would consider taking out Ichthyomorphosis. If creatures are bounced to the hand due to Whelming Wave or Thing in the Ice, then you will lose your enchantment. I really like Omen of the Sea. I think it is a great card that also helps with Devotion. Personally, I like Into the Roil. Good for early control, and mid game you can also draw a card. Vapor Snag is always good too.

I would drop:
- Fleeting Distraction
- Grip of the Roil
- Obsessive Search
- Radical Idea
- Reach Through Depths
- Spell Syphon
- Twisted Image
- Slip Through Space
- Apprentice Wizard
- Deranged Assistant
- Hedron Crawler
- Sea Scryer
- Prismatic Lens
One reason is that you have a lot of cards that do nothing but draw one card. Which is usually fine in 60 card 1v1 as they function as almost running fewer cards. This lets you draw into your business spells with more consistency. However, in EDH multiplayer, I feel like you want cards with more impact. I kept in cards that let you scry or let you decide card quality because those have more impact.
The other reason is that you really aren't accelerating into anything big, so why do you need a bunch of mana ramp cards? You definitely want to hit all your land drops, but your 2-for-1 and 3-for-1 draw spells should keep filling your hand with lands. You want more business spells that keep you in the game long enough to get Talrand into play and start beating down.
I know Talrand tempts you to play a bunch of cantrip spells to have a sort of combo finish. However, in my experience it is better to have a more solid lock down of the game and win with inevitability than just trying for an alpha strike. A few 2/2 flyers can go a long way.
I would go up to 36-38 lands to make sure you keep getting those land drops.
Then I would add a few more counters:
Then some more bounce (although you have most of the good ones in there already):
Then maybe a couple more recursion spells:
Just to give you some card advantage in other ways or to get back powerful spells that you were forced to use early.
Blue shenanigans can be hard to play. Sometimes you want to be aggressive with your countermagic and bounce to stall your opponents. Other times you want to hold back and wait until the more opportune time.
Hope this helps.

Didn't Say Please a milling Counter.
also i think adding Mystic Sanctuary can be good to reuse one of the milling sorcery

I got 2 suggestions for dealing with aggro creature decks: Vapor Snag while snag isnt a permanent answer is does buy crucial time. Dismember this card does take pain but is a permanent answer to creatures

Depending on what you're wanting it for, Hunted Troll can be replaced. Clackbridge Troll is the only other one that gives opponents creatures, but I think you're just looking for a big creature to beat your opponents with. Verdurous Gearhulk is probably your best replacement, even if you just play it as a 8/8 trample for 5.
Echoing Truth doesn't have a perfect replacement in your colors: Selective Snare is the closest answer to Hunted Troll faeries. Bile Blight and Legion's End in black. Declaration in Stone Detention Sphere and Deputy of Detention in white. As long as you don't need to answer tokens you gave the opponent, there are plenty of options: Disperse Expel from Orazca Perilous Voyage Cyclonic Rift Brazen Borrower Simic Charm .
