No I agree, but I thought I provide some kind of an answer if you wanted to do it. Losing tutors hurts.
None of the cards which make DD "work" need points minus Doomsday and Crypt, but you lose a lot of cards which help make it a worthwhile win condition. You can add in the tutors but then you lose the broken cards which make you want to play Doomsday in the first place.
It's at least interesting to think about, which cards you want to be playing.

Oh dear, I don't know much about CanLander. If you want to play Doomsday in the format, I'd prioritize the cards which let you make the efficiency piles:
From the points list, the two cards you have to play are Doomsday (1) and Mana Crypt (2) since they are regularly used (the first one obviously haha). Other than that you get the rest of the good piling cards from normal EDH for free.
Here are cards which I would consider from CanLander which are completely stupid with Doomsday, you'll have to pick based on the 8 points we have left:
- Fastbond (1)
- Ancestral Recall (6)
- Black Lotus (7)
- Tolarian Academy (1)
- Time Walk (5)
These are cards which more or less break Doomsday and make piling much easier. Considering we have only 8 points left, the best choices to me seem to be Fastbond + Recall + Tolarian Academy since you get 3 busted cards. GushBond Doomsday is pretty dumb, and also really easy haha cause you just replay any number of lands you want. Mana becomes a non-issue. Tolarian Academy is just busted, and plays nicely with the rocks we'll be playing. Ancestral Recall is P9 and probably the card which is most powerful in Doomsday overall. Brainstorm is incredibly good with Doomsday, and Recall is essentially that card on steroids.
I'll qualify that I don't play the format, so I'm not sure exactly what is best. But I can list cards which break Doomsday in half.
Ideally we want Black Lotus and Recall for maximum borked, but the points don't let us do that. :(

today i went to the store to buy eggs and i didn't know which eggs to buy since there was no primer. again someone falls victim to travesty since there is no primer. i want to go buy a chainsaw for cutting my deck effectively since i heard people cut decks and i would like a primer. where is the primer.

Yeah, Future Sight definitely has its applications, just a bit slow when you want it to come down.
The Consult line is a brand new choice, and I'm seeing how it goes. Shaper and I decided to give it a spin in Zur, so we'll see what happens. I'm pretty hype that it'll be strong though. Plus, having a low curve overall makes things like Naus very very clean, and you often won't have fat cards in hand which are dead.

I seem to have made a mistake in the previous comment.
It's post infinite mana to win.
Sorry about that! Though I'm sure many readers and you picked up on that mistake. Still wanted it fixed though.

Hey dude. Here's the rationale for me running it. Generally the 6 CMC payoff cards are kept to a minimum, especially in Zur, so I picked Mind's Desire as the only one for the following:
It's an excellent payoff card by itself. It becomes the primary line when you have a single tutor and can cast a number of spells to make mana -> tutor out Yawgmoth's Will -> do the stuff again -> confirm a win since it's just so good. Really it's a top end which is extremely difficult to stop.
Re: Doomsday. Short answer is both. Long answer is on lines where I am casting Doomsday to win with excess resources, Mind's Desire is in my opinion the optimal line, since it will prevent your opponents from having any way of stopping you post-DD opener. It's also great to just outright exile Doomsday with it. It may seem win-more, and in this scenario it could be. So next reason.
It's one of the few cards which I believe can actually pull you from the depths into a win. Sometimes things aren't going well and you can't stick a Zur. You can go for some short storm line and top it off with Mind's Desire. It won't always work, but it's a strong enough card to keep around to provide that kind of out in those situations.
I'm not often using Mind's Desire, though. The common lines are Naus -> Grace -> Naus, or a resource light DD cast. But I'm never unhappy to have it available. And it's a stronger payoff card than Time Spiral. Plus the Doomsday lines with it are pretty much unbeatable.
On to Future Sight, it could be playable thanks to the DD piles it turns on, but I think it's impact is overall not swingy enough to include. It's also trying to fill a role Grace/Naus fills in the deck, which I think we're not in need of a back up for.
Phyrexian Unlife - Great card. Love it. Not in this list, so if you really want, Mind's Desire -> Phyrexian Unlife is a fine swap. I play it in paper since I don't have a Candle/Twister. I'll include a note on it in the description.
