Turbofog shell with Azor's Elocutors + Proliferate as a wincon. Includes infect as Plan B.
Tezzeret's Gambit and Augury Owl help you find Azor's Elocutors. Once it's in play, you have Tezzeret's Gambit, Thrummingbird, and Vorel to help it build counters quickly. Isochron Scepter + Fog/Mana Leak is a great stall combo in the meantime. Cultivate is a good card to see if you're mana screwed or just getting a bad draw and need the deck shuffled. Originally there were four copies, but that felt like too much, so I cut it back to two.
Glistening Elf and Inkmoth Nexus are good for sticking an early poison counter or two as insurance in case you don't get the Elocutors setup right away. They can get pretty huge after a Tezzeret's Gambit or two and especially once the Thrummingbirds hit the field.
Sideboarding suggestions are welcome. I'd like a setup that lets me adjust the speed of the deck to that of my opponent; that is, I'd like to make it more aggressive against a control deck, and yet increase the deck's ability to stall against an aggressive deck. I already have a few ideas for this, and I may edit them in at some point.
