Detective Tamiyo and her underlings are on the case.

Sideboard is just my note in case i feel like playing it standard i can make some swaps.

Sweet deck. The flavor is on point. I might suggest that Briarbridge Patrol and Ulvenwald Mysteries are your weakest links, as they don't really work with CoCo or Always Watching, and you've got no creatures worth cheating out with the Patrol.

I'd suggest Graf Mole or Confront the Unknown to replace them, I think.

I understand the briarbridge and am often on the fence about it. It is 4 mana, above threshold for CoCo and bygone. Graf mole is a good choice, and i do run it occasionally. Its synergy with the journal feels great.

I rather like Ulvenwald Mysteries im going to sacrifice 3 clues to tutor a card, and i get 3 1/1 bodies. I just like the interaction. And if i removed it I'd just put in Fleeting Memories for the fun of it

I would suggest considering some artifact synergy such as Inspiring Statuary, Dispatch, Ensoul Artifact and Mechanized Production.

I thought about an Inspiring Statuary + Paradox Engine Combo. Casting the cards I grab for 1-2 mana, then untapping Tamiyo's Journal and grabbing another card. Mechanized Production Isn't what I want the deck to be. It feels too cheesy/easy in the casual setting I normally play in.

If this is modern, how come 59 out of the 60 cards are standard playable.

Because most of the cards i own are standard playable, and i had a CoCo and wanted to use it in something. Also reflector mage is banned in standard

So I have a deck very similar to this that I recently resurrected for standard. I had a lot of fun with it, and now it has an interesting alt wincon with Mechanized Production, which I would absolutely recommend for your deck as well (I see it's in your maybeboard). Here's what I'm running in standard:

Yes, i posted in an earlier comment about Mechanized Production it seemed like an easy/cheesy way to win. Plus i dont actually own the card so it saves me some money there. I think i like the deck in its bit of a grindy form.
