I play this deck as well and like a lot of things about your build. I love 2x Ugin! One area where I have strong opinions: I love Snapcaster and hate T-hulk in mono-U tron. Snapcaster gives a lot of versatility in the late game, and is just such a powerful card in the abstract. It's particularly good in builds with Fabricate. Meanwhile T-hulk has embarrassingly few targets. Remand is usually mediocre in the mid-game when you'll be casting hulk and Spatial Contortion is meh... leaving you four good targets (Thirst) in the entire deck. Also, double U isn't always a given. I've been playing this deck for a while and am a little mystified why T-hulk ends up in so many mainboards.

Another thought: I've really been enjoying Field of Ruin over Ghost Quarter lately, although I'm less sure that's correct.

I have a Wurmcoil/Batterskull split right now. One is soft to Path, the other to Push, so I'm hedging. Also, in a Fabricate build I value the versatility. With only Treasure Mages to tutor, 2x Wurmcoil might just be better.

Love this build. With the printing of Push and BGx decks no longer needing to splash for Path or Bolt, Snapcaster seems like a logical direction to take the archetype. In particular, I love the Nissa tech. When you're digging for specific answers, scrying away two useless cards is basically Divination, please and thank you.

After running it through some playtests, I don't think I can get behind Serum Visions over Thought Scour. At the very least I think you want a 2-2 split. Visions is fine and is great at making 1 land hands keepable, but Scour gives you so much velocity with Goyf and Flayer. It's also great with Snappy, as you can draw a card at instant speed when you were leaving up Push or Decay. To some degree it's a meta choice. Visions is better if you're the control deck, Scour is better if you're trying to get underneath Tron, UW control, or some other deck that you need to kill dead by T4 or T5.

Sweet build though. If I had a couple grand lying around I'd probably build something very similar!
