fun looking deck, I like the ideas you put in there, however if I were you, I would cut down on spells in your deck that cost more than 4 mana to play, I myself recently made a deck based around isochron and the real trick was to cut it down to 3 spells at most that you wanted to play with it and while you have a lot of really setups for playing isochron, even with prototype portal it will play out very slowly. Interesting combo I found while messing with it was Prototype Portal, Soul Foundry, Isochron Sceptor and Semblance Anvil which can create an infinite amount of token copy creatures and low cost instants. You probably need to cut down on the whole quest counters thing and stick with just isochron otherwise you can run into some serious disruption due to the slow build up. Like the deck design though! +1

Mairon_Bauglir I do agree I need to cut down the higher cost cards as they're morely in the way, something I'm slowly working on. however Semblance Anvil wont really help me beyond what artifacts I cast from my hand. Isochron Sceptor and Prototype Portal wont receive any benefits from the anvil while on the battlefield due to the mana cost and tap are required before anything they would produce/cast takes effect.
Still the rest of your advice is sound and I might reduce the amount of spells I have, also thanks for the +1.

Isochron Scepter is one of my favorite cards and I wish it was more competitive. I like this list and the ideas here. In the interest of thinning the deck down a bit, it seems to me that you are very heavy on potential win-cons and that would be the easiest thing to take out without affecting the usefulness of the Isochron Scepter. I would do something like:
-1 Dack Fayden-1 Tamiyo, the Moon Sage-2 Pyromancer Ascension-2 March of the Machines-2 Archmage Ascension-2 Metallurgic Summonings-1 Battlefield Thaumaturge-2 Laboratory Maniac-2 Prototype Portal+2 Ral Zarek
I like Ral Zarek because he seems the most psynergetic and his ultimate can easily win you the game with a Silence on an Isochron Scepter. If you have any questions about the reasoning behind any of this let me know. Good luck with this!
I have a list built around Isochron Scepter also. Check it out and let me know what you think. +1 for great minds!
