Because BroHug.

With this deck I'm going for a full Group Hug with some Teferi-related love, mostly manifesting in every card with Phasing I could muster that could have some effect on the state of play - Breezekeeper would serve only as a headscratcher for my opponents but not much else. For Teferi-related flavor, I hesitate to put Barrin, Master Wizard in here simply because it doesn't seem to be in line with what the rest of the deck does - the same reasoning explains the lack of Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir.

Silly combo idea: Mechanized Production + "Investigate" keyword abuse, though it looks like I can get rid of Trail of Evidence ...or I need to increase the instant/sorcery count in the deck.

After a bit of thinking, I decided to remove cards like Sudden Impact, Fateful Showdown, and Blood Oath because the single target nature of them felt inherently non-grouphuggish. As such, Bulwark can probably also come out, which would make space for Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind. Yes, he's also a single-target card, but in conjunction with Forced Fruition and Consecrated Sphinx, I could spread the pain pretty well.

I would prefer, however, going for silly win conditions like Azor's Elocutors (though I currently don't have much of a plan for protecting them), massive group card draw + Iron Maiden ...the deck this is based on had Hive Mind with Pact of Negation and Pact of the Titan . If I put that back in here, I could also add Intervention Pact and Summoner's Pact to the mix. But...if I do that, then what else do I take out?

Thoughts? Suggestions? Accusations of insanity?
