I'd add more ways to protect your commander. Boros Charm , Counterflux , Render Silent , and more ways to kill artifacts/creatures/etc Bedevil , Orim's Chant , Bant Charm .

Though they are just suggestions, these spells conveniently happen to be eligible targets for Sunforger . You're in the business of searching your deck for dragons to serve your every need, why not do the same for spells?

Wild Research can do the same for enchantments as well.

Mistveil Plains and Bow of Nylea will put used cards back into your library for you, so the Ferris Wheel never ends!

@ griffstick , thank you for your suggestions! I think you might be right about the Library of Leng ... The only reason it is in the deck was because of Wild Research , to counteract its discard-effect. In combination with Temple Bell you had a 100% guarantee to get the card you tutored for. This was exspecially nescessary as I had Nexus of Fate as a wincondition in the deck and needed to tutor it up on every turn using the research/temple bell/library combination... As the Nexus isn't in the deck anymore, I think I can cut it from the list. It's sad though, as I kinda like this card :'(

Looking at the Sphere of Safety I kinda disagree with you. This might depend on my meta though, as nearly everyone is playing tokenbased strategies... Being the only person in blue I'm often being targeted by the more aggressive players. Even if the Sphere taxes my opponents only about 3-4 mana for every attacking creature, they are usually looking another way, where they can use their token-army at full advantage. The Sphere also seems to be the only way to protect my Venser, the Sojourner , who becomes very important in the lategame. Last but not least the Sphere goes very well with Enchanted Evening , making it nearly impossible to attack me at all if my opponent doesn't have infinite mana at hand. In short: I really do like the Sphere in the deck! :)

Still you helped me out a lot! Thank you for your time and your angagement :) I am one step further, now there's only one more to take!

Yeah Wild Research would be really good, but I have no idea what to take out for it.

Haha, yeah that'd be sweet! Infinite Reflection is a fun enabler for sure. It would shut down zedruu from giving it away, which is why it didn't survive some of my first cuts. The only cards to give it away are Donate, Trickbind, and Puca's Mischief. My tutor's for those pieces would be Wild Research and Gamble. I hadn't really even thought of giving away Infinite Reflection at instant speed to catch someone on an ETB effect in response to playing a creature. I was able to get off the Rogue Skycaptain + Infinite Reflection + Harmless Offering last night, but a big part of that was that I was drawing 14 cards a turn by the end with Zedruu

hey Regoober, say my opponent has their commander out. If I Mirrorweave the Crimson Honor Guard would they still be dealt damage by it since they have one of those instead of their commander or is it the cards physical presence on the table that counts?

Hey skinken, thanks for taking the time to give some good feedback. Tutors are for sure the way to class up the deck, and I used to have a few more than I do now. I've done a bit of tuning since then to keep them to a minimum and really just add room for fun stuff. The tutors I've got are Wild Research , Ring of Three Wishes , and Expedition Map turns into Inventors' Fair . I'll be sure to add Gamble though probably in place of the Ring of Three Wishes because I think that's hilarious and even kinda sums up the deck.

I do agree that it's not always the best idea to have things in your deck that totally cancel other things. The Akroan Horse is pretty mediocre in general and might even be due for a cut, but the Desolation Giant is more of a circumstantial piece. Like if i throw him under a Summoner's Egg , or enchant him with a False Demise and give that away. Torpor Orb is an awesome card and certainly makes a lot of the deck function but I prefer my Hushwing Gryff to him instead since I can control when I want to block with it to get it off the board and do big stuff. Bruna, the Fading Light is actually a cast trigger instead of an ETB but if it wasn't I would totally agree that it's stupid, so thanks for having my back. I avtually Added her and gisela in because I recently broke down a deck that had them in it and I have a fair enough amount of card draw to hopefully make Brisela, Voice of Nightmares happen on occasion

The farie artisians thing is sick though, I'll add a list of dumb funny things that I've been able to pull off like that. I think you'll get a kick out of it.

Thank you so much for the suggestions, Delaying Shield sounds like a great edition in terms of politics for the table. However for everything else, I kind want to put a focus on the theme. Speaking of which I'm trying to decide which quests to cut, and what to add to others. Maybe a way to search for them that is easier than Wild Research. Currently I have some Darksteel Reactor synergies in my maybeboard, but I dont know which quest(s) or wincon(s) to cut.
