Awesome. Maybe find room for Serum Visions to dig for your enablers. Also: Ghost Quarter if you can find accommodation in your manabase, Maralen of the Mornsong if you feel like living dangerously, and new "wrath to exile" Settle the Wreckage.

Thanks a lot mostlyghost! The idea for the deck was actually based around Ghost Quarter, Path to Exile, Surgical Extraction, and Cosi's Trickster, but somehow I forgot to add Ghost Quarter. I was running a playset of Opt instead of Serum Visions because I like the instant speed value more, but I have now worked it around to be a 3/3 split. Settle the Wreckage would definitely be the center piece of the deck if the opponent shuffled his library for each creature, but I'm worried it just isn't quite effective enough. I'll have to test it out. Finally, I love Maralen of the Mornsong, but unfortunately, I really don't think modern is the right format for her especially in a not super combo oriented deck.
Thanks a lot Wel5, I appreciate it!

This looks like my Truffle Shuffle to Hell deck if I actually knew how to build a modern deck. I love it

Thanks a lot BeaudaciousGiebs! I took a look at your deck and it looks super fun to play as a budget/casual version of this deck. I might even have to squeeze in a copy of Ob-Nix just for the kicks of Path to Exile followed by a flying table.

Cosi's Trickster is such a cool card! What a unique deck, love it.

Have you tried something like Oust to synergize with all that shuffling? Or will the sorcery-speed restriction make it obsolete?

Love the deck. I don't think that Day's Undoing should be in the deck. The card dose trigger the cards that care about an opponent shuffling, but because as Day's Undoing is resolving the game is moved into the end step and those triggers cannot be placed on the stack Day's Undoing and triggers. If you are using it as a way to draw 7 cards and move your grave yard to your library, sorry for being a pain on that. My suggestion is to cut Counterbore, Day's Undoing, and Mimeofacture and putting in 3 Remands. That would reduce the number of times that the opponent is shuffling by two, but being able to slow the opponent down and being a cantrip could help you buy time to get to your win cons. And a large portion of decks run fetch lands, so opponents will be shuffling on their own as well making that reduction by 2 not feel as bad. If you are making a side board I would defiantly suggest Fulminator Mage. It would be good especially in the Tron match up. Destroy a Tron piece and then Surgical Extraction it away. I also suggest Wasteland Strangler in the side board. You have many ways to get cards into exile making it very easy to make the strangler into a extra removal spell against creature decks while being a creature itself. Sorry for the long post. I'm giving it a +1!

Hmm...ok, so here's an idea: Quest for Pure Flame. Somehow I got this idea that it'd be fun to sacrifice a quest, and use Mana Seism to Bitter Ordeal their entire life total in one shot. I just don't think it'll work like that in practice.
Proclamation of Rebirth for Boggart Forager along with your Psychic Surgery would make it the world's worst Lantern of Insight control. You can even Memory's Journey for 0 cards, just to make them shuffle twice, if you don't like their top card.
Use Muddle the Mixture to find and protect your probes.
Anyway...I'm just brainstorming.

Thanks a lot for all the suggestions guys! I've got a lot to think about here, but I removed Day's Undoing, Counterbore, and Mimeofacture for 2xRemand and Muddle the Mixture. I think this will help with consistency, slowing down the opponent, and generally controlling the board more effectively. I have also added a sideboard for bad matchups.
Also I'd like to thank everyone who has showed their support by upvoting and commenting here, it is as always very appreciated!

+1 for such a unique deck!
Only suggestion I would make is I feel it might be better off with 2x Snapcaster Mage's rather than 2xThada Adel, Acquisitor. I imagine this plays very grindy, so being able to flashback your low cost spells would be better value especially with no Spreading Seas to turn on Islandwalk reliably.

Thanks for the input PIZZ_PAZZ. Opt will be legal as soon as Ixalan is released so it's staying in. If anything Serum Visions is coming out. Also I think splashing red for Boggart Forager would be unwise in an already three color deck.

How good is Psychic Surgery? It seems like it can take some improtant cards throughout the game but it doesn't put pressure and it doesn't shuffle. It only provides a little bit of control that doesn't affect the opponent as much as other cards can. I would cut the 3 probes and add 3 snapcasters for the grindy games because i can see this deck grinding. snapcaster seems like it would fit the missing piece that the deck has.
