Just thought of a couple more. For control, Roil Elemental. For copy, Vesuvan Doppelganger or Clone. Having a few Roil Elemental's can be devastating to opponents army. Cloning a Doppelganger can give you a constantly flexible and diverse army as the board changes.

From all the way back to my Magic origins, Vesuvan Doppelganger was my original favorite artwork. My favorite artwork ever though is Dark Ritual, as it just perfectly depicts black as a color.

This looks great; +1! I wonder what you think of Vesuvan Doppelganger; I've always enjoyed her versatility in decks like these.

My friend and I are both on a budget, so we set our deck prices at around a modest $300000. Today, he tried playing this, but also had a budget Alpha Vesuvan Doppelganger in the mainboard to copy his Storm Crow. I conceded. It wasn't fun.

Looking in more detail I have some suggestions for cards I'd take out. You seem to have a lont of instant speed spot removal, I'd probably take some out. Personally I'd say Path to Exile, but Beast Within might also be one, depending on whether most of your concerns are creatures or other things.

Your deck also seems like it wants to run under the radar then explode, so answers that demand removal might not be the best, specifically Psychosis Crawler, unless you have enough wheel effects to win when you play it generally. Jin-Gitaxias is also an offender on this fru=ont, but only gives each opponent 1 chance to answer it, so is more likely to win by itself. Though, with the number of decks that run Reliquary Tower they might not need to answer it.

Cryptoplasm looks like a cool clone, but it tends to be too slow, and you already have a bunch of better clones. Vesuvan Doppelganger or Vesuvan Shapeshifter can give you the changing ability with the immediate cloning that triggers ETBs. And Sakashima already lets you change, though slower and for more mana.

Oracle of Mul Daya is great, but the value depends on how often you get to play an extra land, which Aggressive Mining will entirely lock you out of. Magus of the Future or Future Sight lets you explode by playing anything from the top.

I'm also not seeing a lot of great nonbasics to justify Tempt with Discovery, and would recommend Skyshroud Claim as it can grab fetchlands without depending on your opponents.

I'd also a proponent of Rhystic Study over Mystic Remora. Even though the draw is less reliable as opponents are more likely to pay, it sticks around longer and some opponents might just not pay because they don't consider you a threat.

As for cards to add, if you're not a fan of the specific 1-to-1 replacements or for where I didn't offer, I'd pick your favorite wheels, maybe add in some grave recursion, though you already have Eternal Witness and are running Ground Seal. The aforementioned Splendid Reclamation gets around this, as does Open the Vaults and Replenish.

I already recommended Krosan Verge, and you might like Myriad Landscape for similar acceleration, though the basic of the same type limitation is real. Drownyard Temple can also combo with Aggressive Mining.
