Hey Josh, what do you think about a few new cards for the deck?

Pull from Tomorrow -- it's like an instant speed Brain Geyser with minor downside you have to discard one card.

Committ // Memory -- like an Unsubstantiate plus Time Spiral without the untapping.

Whir of Invention -- extra copy of Venser's Journal or other things... but the UUU cost is a little rough.

Also, if Panharmonicon is the MVP, is it worth including any of:

Tezzeret the Seeker


Whir of Invention

Enlightened Tutor

to tutor for it?

Needle can stop Liliana so... You also have a bunch of niche applications having citadel such as keeping Mox Opal online and being mana to tutor with Whir of Invention and Tezz. Not that those come up often but it keeps the deck smooth.

The issue is when you cast without paying it's mana cost X is set to 0. When you cast Whir of Invention from hand, you choose a value of X, then pay mana, then tap for improvise, then check to make sure you paid all the costs. When you cast without paying it's mana cost X is chosen to be 0, then you pay mana, then tap for improvise, then make sure any additional costs were properly paid. You could, for instance, use improvise to pay for a cost imposed by Thorn of Amethyst, but X will always be 0 when casting without paying it's mana cost.

For Whir of Invention you can of course use improvise to pay for when you cast it normally, otherwise Improvise would be useless, but as stated, when casting it without paying it's mana cost X is 0, and improvise won't change that.

You might be interested in Kuldotha Forgemaster to help tutor for what you need. Whir of Invention is also a good tutor

Muzzio, Visionary Architect is also fun, albeit a bit less predictable

Mirrorworks (even triggers off of your artifact lands), Sculpting Steel and Phyrexian Metamorph are nice for creating extra copies of things

Sharding Sphinx makes a lot of thopters

Chief Engineer and Grand Architect can help cast your bigger artifacts

Leonin Abunas can protect them

Personally I like Stuffy Doll more than creepy doll (it's also fun to slap a Pariah's Shield onto it)

Memnarch likes "borrowing" things

I'm not entirely convinced it's good enough here but figured i'd atleast mention Open the Vaults. If the game goes on long enough it's probably worth it

I think the the thing the deck is missing the most is more ways of interacting with your opponent. You have the 1-of dispatch but thats about it. Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Go for the Throat etc, but i think you need more.
