Well generally by turn 4 I'll have a Heartless Summoning on the field, well hopefully at least, so tutoring for it with Gifts seems unlikely. But yeah it's still an option.
With Gifts and taking a win-con, they'll most likely put the creature into the graveyard, and unfortunately the only way I'd be able to bring it back is with a Havengul Lich . I was thinking alternate targets could be Myr Retriever , Transmute spell/Golem's Heart , Falkenrath Noble , and Havengul Lich . With that scenario the opponent will most likely put the Noble and Lich into the graveyard, removing my access to either of them without another Lich. That's the only problem with that scenario. That option nets me basically only two cards. With the option in the Update it nets me basically 3 cards since I don't mind the Retriever going to the graveyard, and I can get the other two artifacts back with the Retriever.
The pros of Jarad's Orders however basically allows me to ALWAYS get one of those win-con creatures. And as you said get me two Retrievers (which I would only do if I have another win-con in my hand/on the field).
It's iffy, I'm not sure which one is better. And as far as running the 3 colors, with the Shocklands and Fetchlands it really shouldn't be a problem, especially by turn 4.
But as far as running them at all, I'm really not sure. The speed of the deck is fairly fast as it is, but I've had games that go on till turn 10ish if I can't draw any tutors/win-cons. It's unlikely, but it does happen. I'd only run two of either of them. It's pretty much to end the game by hopefully that turn or the next.
I said essentially.
Honestly you're not saying anything constructive at all.
The deck works. Exactly how I want it.
It doesn't win turn 3 every game, no deck does, that's why Magic is a competitive game. It has the potential to win turn 3 though. The problems you are saying with the deck are just flat out false.
I was thinking a one sided board wipe might be able to help, especially with Windbrisk Heights. Obviously I was thinking Cyclonic Rift, but you can't cast the Overload cost with Windbrisk.
However you can use Hour of Reckoning with or without Windbrisk pretty well.
