Legendary Creature — Faerie Wizard
When Vendilion Clique enters the battlefield, look at target player's hand. You may choose a nonland card from it. If you do, that player reveals the chosen card, puts it on the bottom of his or her library, then draws a card.

I added Vendilion Clique and a bunch of other value etb creatures. The true power in this deck is the ability to abuse really good etb steal effects Puppeteer Clique, Cloud of Faeries. Next combine with extra turns and high cmc spells you can cast for less. Dig Through Time, Commandeer, Misdirection.

I really like the idea of Ral, Izzet Viceroy as well, and he's been hanging out in my maybeboard for a while because I couldn't shake the feeling that it would work well. Initially I was put off of playing it by having a ton of people telling me an 18 land deck can't support a 5 drop. They said the same thing about Crackling Drake as well. I think a really important detail is that all of my control is at 2 CMC (outside of Blood Moon), and since it is a quasi-control deck and does a good job of stalling, casting a 4 or 5 drop on curve isn't important. Even at 18 lands I frequently have games where I get 10 or more of them out by the end of the game.
I think something like Ral, Izzet Viceroy as a one-of is definitely castable most games, whereas a Cryptic Command hasn't worked because it's a CMC constraint tied to a heavy manatype constraint as well. I've been able to cast a Keranos, God of Storms regularly enough that I think just swapping that out for Ral would be a better finisher.
Thank you for the insight into Search for Azcanta Flip, that definitely helps explain why some people can run so few but still feel it merits the include. I was definitely trying to flip it as fast as possible, when in reality I would have probably gotten more benefit out of almost never flipping it (when I ran one).
I think between Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Ral, Ral offers better abilities that the deck is lacking in, and the slightly high starting loyalty means he doesn't get cheesed away as easily. I think he ties in much better with Mission Briefing and Crackling Drake.
I'm going to playtest with him in the Vendilion Clique MB spot, as I've been wanting to get Clique into the SB instead, but I couldn't justify losing a threat to do so.

I would definitely replace your Thought Erasures with another Dimir Infiltrator, And one more of each of your combo cards. Need 4x of each of your combo pieces. There's nothing more frustrating than waiting to draw or the right moment to tutor your winning piece.
It also beefs the Transmute mechanic. Allowing you to use Muddle the Mixture as a badly needed counter, instead of a tutor.
Delver of Secrets Flip feels weak in this deck. It doesn't add to your archetype, and relies on revealing your instants and sorceries, for a 3/2 flyer that dies to Shock. Consider Thing in the Ice Flip, to make the spells you cast controlling the tempo of the game work toward a boardwipe and alternate wincon. Remember, the less your opponent knows about your weapon, the better.
Runechanter's Pike and Vendilion Clique also feel a bit out of place. Clique is just an expensive Thoughtseize, and Pike doesn't win you games. I would suggest more hand hate: Thoughtseize, Duress, Despise
Hope this helps!

Hey! This deck have lot of wincons, like Blade Splicer, Vendilion Clique or Geist of Saint Traft, Restoration Angel or even Jace, the Mind Sculptor. For each match up one of these cards will be rly strong. Life geist vs burn, combo or noncreatures decks, like blade splicer and kitchen finks agaisnt creatures/aggro decks/affinity(golem w/ 1st strike is great to stop ecched champion), like jace against control decks and thats it. The " mid-game " of this deck is rly, rly great. And have lot of responsives and tools to beat any matchup. Kinda like Jund. I'm workin on it and i think maybe can be a rly competitive deck

Ok, so after my latest modern tournament I decided some modification of my creature base and sideboard was needed. I unfortunately am going to bid farewell to Guttersnipe for now. I think I may have overestimated his play-ability in modern. I think for casual and counter top he is an absolute no-brainer but his cost is rather prohibitive for a competitive build such as mine. It honestly bums me out a bit removing him from the deck. Hinging anything on a low health creature staying in the field is always a risk when you have such interactive gameplay in the meta.
Now present in his place is one more copy of Delver of Secrets Flip(again, that cost/benefit just being so far off the charts) as well as one copy of my newest test subject: the Vendilion Clique. Flashing in a powerful ETB(enter the battlefield effect) 3 power flyer just seems like the right move for where my deck has headed.
As some of you may have also noticed I traded in another copy of Cryptic Command and pulled a copy of Ionize. I believe this to be the right choice as to better help me gain effect from the Clique as well as continue to give me more versatile of control over the field.
In the sideboard, I ended up changing my direction a little bit. Relic of Progenitus had to be removed to make way for some other options. After some solid plays I decided on another copy of Abrade. I will also be doing some testing of Ratchet Bomb. I've been looking forward to this since I acquired some in a brutal set of trades a while back.
Here's to you, the Pilots, the Mavericks, and the Scientists! Keep flipping tables!

If Vendilion Clique put the card in their graveyard, I would definitely consider running it, but since it doesn't put it in graveyard, it doesn't fuel Extirpate or Surgical Extraction. That being said, I don't know if it is worth the slot right now.

What do you think about Vendilion Clique to help keep an eye on their hand and give a bit of a threat?
