My Sen Triplets deck needs a little help

I'm having a little trouble finishing my Sen Triplets deck, I do have the full 100 on the list, but I need to replace some things. My main concern is a few conflicts between Guile + Dovescape and a few of my x costed spells, I thought it would be a good idea, but then I realized that Guile wouldn't allow me to play them. I've considered adding Sphinx of the Final Word to protect them from Dovescape, but I don't know where to put it without screwing up my mana base. I've also considered removing those conflicting spells altogether and replacing them with something like Army of the Damned, but I'm not sure. My biggest worry is the fact that Guile exiles the spells, so I can't use them over again to fuel Metallurgic Summonings. Any suggestions?

Russ1981 try to run Boseiju, Who Shelters All instead of Sphinx of the Final Word that's too much easy to kill and if you want Crucible of Worlds for more land stability

Good idea, Boseiju should work just fine. Crucible of Worlds is a bit too expensive for me unfortunately, but I had considered it. Land destruction is frowned upon in EDH from what I hear though so I don't see it as a huge concern anyway. Besides that though I wouldn't know where to fit it either way.

I was an esper player and reuse a fetch was never a bad idea, that was only another suggestion of mine. Expedition Map may help you to find the land you want at the moment, like boseiju.

Guile exiles a spell from the stack, but then you get to play it. In my understanding this means the spell ends up in a graveyard.

I also run a Dovescape + Guile inspired deck: Ertai likes Birds. You can take a look and maybe you will get some more inspiration. One card I'd include is Netherborn Phalanx! pretty sweet for tutoring (any of the pieces, or, massacre wurm) and damaging just because people have loads of birds :p

Oh, I forgot all about Netherborn Phalanx. that's perfect! I have a few ways to transmute it over and over again if necessary too. I'll probably put Expedition Map in there as well, I don't really think I need both Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots anyway.
