I'm glad you mentioned Chasm, because I've taken it in and out and I can't decide how much I like the card. With Crucible I think it's really strong. The reason it was removed was the lack of experiences seeing Burn, Infect, or other decks that Chasm is strongest against. What would you recommend moving around in the main to make room for Chasm?

As far as my answer to combo, yeah Sphere is my best answer, my hardest matchup so far in testing has been Sneak and Show (go figure), I'm still learning the matchup and honestly I'm trying to figure out what the best way to handle that deck is without white, so if have any suggestions I'd love them!

You could take out a Maze of Ith for Chasm. You could also copy Chasm with Thespian's Stage, forgoing the 2 life Cumulative Upkeep. This is also bonkers with Crucible, btw. I run a similar setup in 12 Post.
For Sneak & Show, Karakas to bounce the critters (mainboarding one wouldn't hurt, because you can also bounce opposing Marit Lage tokens), Pithing Needle for Sneak Attack (also a versatile answer to Equipment, Planeswalkers, and other activated abilities of lands and creatures), and counter magic. Maybe Force of Will? It's also a great answer for other strong combo decks, but does require more of a commitment in your deck.

Have you considered Vendilion Clique in the SB? It's versatile against a lot of decks, especially any combo, including Sneak and Show. Usually, it's better when you are on the play first.

I hadn't considered Clique, I like that idea actually. Pithing Needle is an excellent Sideboard option, and since I've got an Academy Ruins in main, it has some versatility. I also opted to remove the Daze set I had in for Brainstorm. While I've had some success with Daze, I think storm will have a much higher value to dig out my value cards. I think I'm guna trade out my Pyroblasts in the side for the Needles, since Sphere already coveres opposing counerspells and Needle will cover opposing Walkers

Ooh, I forgot about Clique! Great proactive card, there!

Hey dude, what about Terra Eternal, if you playing with manlands? I considered it for my Landstill deck, but not sure about that.

I don't think TE is a bad idea, but I also don't know if it'd be worth adding white for. However, in my current build it turns off my Wasteland, which is a bad thing obviously. In terms of protecting my man-lands, I do have Life from the Loam to give them some survivability.

Of course I forget that you do not run White haha sorry for that. I will try Terra Eternal in my deck which maybe makes sense since I don't use wasteland. I can inform you after the usage.
