Spell Queller could definitely work if you're going more midrange, it's a great tempo piece. Chandra is also great in any deck that's running a decent amount of red, mana ramp along with Turning your bricks into 2 damage is pretty sweet.

Catgroove the rules text on Hope of Ghirapur says that they can't cast non-creature spells if dealt combat damage by it this turn, which means we'd have to go to combat with Ghirapur first. Since the combo relies on attacking with tokens that then get exiled at our end step, it wouldn't really work.

It depends on what the meta is like, but it's looking as if there'll be a lot of these decks running around, so adding Shock to the main or the sideboard is probably a good call. My thought was to just counter Saheeli with negate or another counter spell, but at 1 mana, shock might be a more efficient way to deal with her.

BloodOfTheWolf I was actually considering the same thing, mainly because I don't wanna buy another Saheeli at $25 lol. And as long as there's ways to dig for the combo (Anticipate, Glimmer), I see no reason why you couldn't just run the combo pieces as a 3 of instead of 4.
In this version of the deck, Gearhulks can be an alternate win condition, so even if the combo gets disrupted, or we don't find it, that's not a huge deal.

I agree with BlaineTog here. Disallow is strictly better, even at UU, because it's unconditional counter that spell with the upside of countering abilities if we need it, which could be very useful in the mirror match up.

Shwang I think playtesting is the best way to figure all of that out. There'll definitely be people that run disruption/hate, but it really depends on what kind. If Authority of the Consul ends up being a thing, then Fragmetize is probably my best bet. If it's instant speed hate, then Dispel is much better. I'll definitely be updating and fine tuning the deck as I play it.

BlaineTog Adding Reckless Fireweaver into the mix only complicates the combo in my opinion, and takes away from the counter-magic/card advantage that we get with the deck by taking up slots. Could it work as a sideboard card? Yeah potentially, but there's better cards that we can utilize to deal with Authority/Thalia. This deck is honestly more of a Jeskai control deck that's very good at hunting for the pieces it needs to combo off.

I thought about adding it, but when I was building this I wanted it to play more as a control deck that just so happens to have the combo in it, rather than a through-and-through combo deck.

Supahpikmin Guardian isn't legal because Aether Revolt hasn't released yet, once it does the deck will actually be standard legal.
The combo itself is much like the Splinter Twin combo in modern. Saheeli Rai copies Felidar, creating a token with haste (and it does get the ETB effect, Wizards changed the wording for how tokens are done from "put a token onto the battlefield" to "create a token," but it accomplishes the same thing). That token bounces Saheeli and then you get to rinse and repeat to your hearts content.
As for adding Decoction Module, there's no slots for it, and I have no use for the energy that it produces. This deck is a control build that coincidentally plays the combo rather than being a deck based around the combo itself.
