RileyJP300 Thanks! I see what you mean with Temple of the False God as it would only help during turn 5 at the earliest which is when you should have Kozilek, the Great Distortion out, and thus hinder you if you have it as one of your openings hands. My land base has remained relatively unchanged to how it was when it was first made and so there are definitely lands that I didn't know about, that I'm egar to put in but I've just been lazy about as they're lands. At the moment I'm thinking of trying out Warping Wail and Winter Orb and a bunch of different utility lands. As unless I have Soul of New Phyrexia or Darksteel Forge out I can be set back by quite a bit, and Winter Orb will slow my opponents to a crawl. Whilst my rocks keep me going, especially with how it'll interact with things such as Clock of Omens and create interesting politic's situations. However, I don't think Not of This World will make a cut as I can easily cast Kozilek, the Great Distortion several times with amazing hand refills. Whilst I won't go for as many basics as you have, I'll probably add a couple more to ensure my library is never empty of them.

Wow I wish I had some of these cards! Metalworker is completely insane. That said if you're looking for a way to squeeze in any of your maybeboard lands you could remove Temple of the False God . most of your mana comes from artifacts, not lands, and that card does nothing until you have four other lands out, so usually its completely dead in the opening hand and bad as a top deck until you have the lands to make it work. I'd rather have a basic than that in most cases. Something that I did with my Kozi deck is maximize the amount of Wastes in the land base. Its a neat way to explore what nonbasics are the best and it lets you play some pretty sweet cards like Endless Atlas , Walker of the Wastes , Terrain Generator , and best of all, Extraplanar Lens . Thespian's Stage is almost always a copy of a land that taps for two, and sometimes an opponent forgets you can target their lands with its ability and drops a Dark Depths which can be hilarious. Other than lands, I would HIGHLY recommend finding space for Warping Wail and Not of This World . The amount of times Warping Wail has saved me from a board wipe or Not of This World has saved an expensive eldrazi from cheap removal cant be understated. bonus points since Not of This World counters abilities, too. Good stuff though, I bet this deck ramps like Tony Hawk on meth.

Incorporating more interaction on the lower end of your curve would be a nifty idea. You have ramp and pay off but to get to the pay off you're gunna need to be able to stop some of the little critter decks. Warping Wail and Spatial Contortion are decent options. Also, don't underestimate Thought-Knot Seer he's been a real power house in my meta full of najeela and doomsday players.

had to stop to think about non-blue counters once you mentioned it. I remembered Avoid Fate , Dawn Charm , Rebuff the Wicked , Dash Hopes , and Mana Tithe . but after that I was stumped on any others.

then I checked the gatherer...

Artifact Blast , Burnout , Red Elemental Blast , Pyroblast , Guttural Response , Lapse of Certainty , Illumination , Mages' Contest , Molten Influence , Not of This World , Warping Wail , and Withering Boon .

and thats not counting Bind and Rust , which while counters, don't counter spells.

Big fan of Warping Wail . A counterspell, removal, or one time ramp for any deck. Yes please!

Merkesb, what do you typically use Warping Wail for? I almost considered using it as signature because of it's utility & ability to counter some signature spells. Have you considered Skittering Invasion in this deck for ramp?

Thank you for your suggestions, hkhssweiss!

I've added some of the cards you mentioned, and moved around some cards, to see what works best. I have yet to try Warping Wail since I'm not sure if I have the reliable colorless mana. Besides that I haven't added Illuminate , Land Tax or Tithe because I don't own them yet. Some others cards I've added are Archangel of Thune and Door of Destinies, some other cards I've been considering getting are Thran Dynamo and Path to Exile and of course Serra, when she releases.

Chhris I would like to add more effects like Molten Nursery but I am not sure if there any colorless cards that can do that.

wideline1414 I do not have Amulet of Vigor in this deck, but it would be a great inclusion. Hopefully I can find a cheap one or trade for it. Thanks for the suggestion!

PacoBob Traxos does get removed a lot and Not of This World and Warping Wail would be great answers for that. Thanks for the suggestions!
