Vizier of Many Faces

Vizier of Many Faces Discussion

I think it lacks impact for this combo and the deck has strong mana and draw. Cast Out is the best finish to the combo so far.
Crocodile just because of the haste after clearing the board. Vizier as you could keep something on the board you want to copy, or you could copy your own. Kefnet as it should be online and stabilizes the board quite well.
What do you think?

I would say you are off to a good start, but I see some things to think about.
I would lower your mana curve a lot. Like actually cut almost every card that costs over 4 for cheaper options. Also I would try and decide whether or not you really want to focus on milling out people or not. Its not a strategy you can go half in on, its just not gonna work. Personally I would cut the strategy from the deck. You don't need too many cards devoted to "winning", if you have some good theft and copy cards in addition to the commander.
Your commander is very mana hungry to take advantage of, and needs protection. If you focus on supporting the commander more I think you will be in better shape. Things like cheap countermagic that can be cast the same turn as the commander, and especially mana rocks that can tap for any color so you can cast the cards from your opponent's hands easier. Just more mana rocks in general, can't have too many.
Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Coalition Relic, Fellwar Stone, ...just about any 5-color tapping mana rock. Then once you have enough of them in play Paradox Engine gets crazy good, it would allow you to untap during other people's turns. Turn Aside, Memory Lapse, Remand, Delay, Hindering Light, Echoing Truth, Displacement Wave, Cyclonic Rift, Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking are good counterspells, removal, and bounce that come to mind quickly. Vizier of Many Faces has been impressive lately as a great clone.
Lots of changes, good luck! I'm interested to see what comes out!

Nice update. I would still offer some strict upgrade for some cards though.
Also how hwas testing out Silent Arbiter gone? Does it often get removed or does it stick to the field?

Alright, I would keep Baleful Strix, Godhead of Awe, Grand Abolisher, Phantasmal Image, Sharuum the Hegemon, Sun Titan, Vizier of Many Faces and cut the rest. Padeem, Consul of Innovation would be good, better than the archangel. More clones would be an idea, so you can not only steal the spells but then also make more copies of the creatures...or you can at least copy something that you didn't manage or want to counter.
Looking at the mana base...please do not play the ravnica bounce lands, they are really really bad. Worst case would be that you play a tapped land, next turn a bonce land and then someone destroys that land and you lost 3 full turns for nothing. Actually, don't play any lands that come into play tapped, unless they have some really important ability. you do your colour fixing with the artifacts so rather play basic lands before you use the ones that come into play tapped! I would say if you have a problem with getting at least several fetchlands and shockduals you should make the deck mostly blue and use only little of the other colours so you can put in enough islands. having blue for the counterspells in the early game is the most important aspect

Vesuva: Because why play basic islands when you can pay $13 for a card that copies one?
