I can dig it xyr0s.... i appreciate the time you took to help out with this brew!.... I'll chew on your list for a bit....and double tripple check legalities before buying any more cards lol... ty again.

i agree completly xyr0s.... again just currently butt-hurt about my purchase that I should have known better about.... this will go back to being Modern Legal soon after I wipe away my tears.
I'll probably swap out the Brainstorm/Ponder/Preordain with some other cantrip like Opt or Thought Scour....then replace Sensei's Divining Top with... some theoretical blue midrange card/utility devotion enabler... or maybe just Mana Leak or even going back to adding in Augury Owl like AdamChafee suggested...... this deck is almost a thing.... i know Conundrum Sphinx isnt the greatest but im determined to make it work in my playgroup.

@xyr0s your not wrong. This originally was meant to be Modern, but then after putting Counterbalance in here I thought to myself "y'know what Sensei's Divining Top might actually make this deck a winner!" And like a moron went out and bought some not knowing that it was banned in both modern and legacy... So this became "Vintage" out of spite.

I originally had Augury Owl in here but have chosen Omenspeaker for the higher toughness to slow down aggro longer... Like be able to wall out a Goblin Guide rather than just block once. I'm a fan of the owl but I have top deck manipulation for days and feel like I need the meat shields so I can swing with Conundrum Sphinx freely.

@lagotripha those are some great suggestions! I was convinced that Counterbalance was not modern legal when I built this... I was wrong and am definitely going to put it in here and play test it.... I see what you mean about getting 2 for 1ed with Aqueous Form but the idea is to set it and forget it to leave Mana open for counter spells and has the evastion boost... But with Counterbalance in here I think I can go without it.... I feel the same way about Sage of Epityr but the higher toughness is really important to me hence why I chose Omenspeaker over Augury Owl.... Love your tech recommendations too I will look into those ty very much for the input!

Shielding Plax is great protection and draw.

@MWorl91 Truthfully I am not very knowledgeable about the recent Dominaria cards/havent bought any packs in awhile but have seen a few cards on this sight in brews here and there... but you sir have sparked my interest in looking at it a bit closer!
@landofMordor The unique Egyptian world that Amonkhet brought really was neat! I thought the -1/-1 counters was kinda reminiscent of the days of wither and persist.... as far as Ixalan/RIX lorewise.... more specifically jace.... I just hate the guy... Im a Blue mage... but i just hate jace as a character and despise that he is the poster child for control players... SAD!

@hardhitta71194 Kaledesh was pretty neat and VERY colorful artwise... That was my biggest takeaway from it... Other than the vehicles. I really hope to see more of that in the future.
@Loreshadow... You just blew my mind! I never thought of using rebound with surge. That sounds awesome. Blue is my favorite color in MTG so I am all about strong blue spells/will never be satisfied... I personally find building in mono blue Theros and forward can be a little underwhelming... Even our beloved merfolk tribe is becoming simic!!!

@kanokarob great point about the overall grand MTG story arc. Eldrazi is such an awesome villian tribe. I personally enjoy the landfall mechanics that come with zendikar.

I can totally dig your choice of Dragons of Tarkir for the favorite set. I really liked it lorewise. The Ascension of the dragonlords was just straight up cool.
As far as Theros was concerned I really enjoyed that whole block too! I loved the Greek Mythology theme as well as the introduction of the constellation mechanic.... although constellation never really became a competitive thing i still really liked it.

Whether its for mechanics, specific cards or general Lore what has your Vote for your favorite Magic Set/Block over the last 5 years?

some really interesting synergy going on with these suggestions.... I kinda like the idea of having the power boost/devotion effect from Grand Architect and his secondary ability can play off of artifacts like Lantern of Insight which gives motivation to run Ensoul Artifact....Temporal Mastery and Cloudform seem pretty logical too.... Now its a matter of playtesting and making substitutions to make it all fit... While still trying to hold onto the roots of this deck.

Spreading Seas is easy enough to mainboad... possibly just replace Augury Owl...Despite the crazy amount of scry i am hesitant to put in any ETB tapped lands.... when i first started building decks i thought things like Halimar Depths and scry lands like Temple of Epiphany were the best things ever until i realized i was actually losing games from casting that much slower... but i think your right that a single copy of Halimar Depths wouldnt be back breaking and offset replacing Augury Owl with Spreading Seas.
