Why not add some of the new artifacts from m13? Staff of Nin is amazing for a deck like this that dwells on winning mid to late game. Also Trading Post is an amazing tempo card that gives you exactly what you need when you need it. Need extra life to stay alive? you got it. Need a blocker? you got it. Need a wurmcoil from your graveyard? you got it. Need some more cards? you got it. Also consider running the wellsprings. Both Ichor Wellspring and Mycosynth Wellspring are amazing at cycling through your deck and making it overall more consistant. Plus it gives you something to do on turns 2 and 3 besides maybe attacking with a nexus. Pristine Talisman is an amazing card for this deck and I can't tell you how many times that 1 life every turn has turned out to become a victory for me. With so many decks focusing on dealing that first 20 damage as fast as possible, you'd be suprised at how far making them deal 2 or 3 extra damage will set them back. Treasure Mage wouldn't hurt in this deck either. Going and fetching your wurmcoil engine or other six drop (Steel Hellkite , Spine of Ish Sah , Staff of Nin ) would never be a bad thing. Finally, Mana Leak is bad. So many people want the card to perform like it used to but with Cavern of Souls running around in just about everyone's 75, what your opponent doesn't want you countering, you wont. It may be decent against other control decks, but the big things you would want to counter come later game where they would have the mana to pay or just cast their own counter. Dissipate seems better because it forces them to have a counter of their own. Take a look at my variant and keep in mind that it has placed 1st at my last fnm as well as a 500$ cash tourney my lgs held last saturday. deck:tricks-of-the-trade-1
