1x Throne of the God-Pharaoh , perhaps? It's pretty fun tapping land creatures for mana and dealing damage.

Thanks a bunch for the +1 and thoughtful suggestion, Austin_Smith_of_Cards!! I'm giving Zenith some serious thought. I do like the option of targeting opponents and that strikes me as very much in the spirit of this deck. That said, I'm not sure it's worth the extra CMC - if I can draw my entire deck with a Spring, that's a win - so it doesn't really matter I can't target my opponent. Additionally, I imagine opponents would be more likely to counter a lethal Zenith aimed them than a Spring aimed at myself. (psychological effect?) Finally, very rarely, I'll use a Spring before I have infinite mana, in which case, the extra 1 for Zenith counts as one less card I could draw.

1x Anointed Procession ? I know it's pricey, but just one would be fun here.

I know Approach of the Second Sun is a turbo-fog win-con, so I'm going to suggest Holy Day , Riot Control , Ethereal Haze , and Pay No Heed as possibly useful spells here. Cyclonic Rift also comes to mind as a particularly good fit here.

First of all, we often play 4 player, so I recognize only some of this is specifically relevant. Ok, so a lot of this depends on how his deck draws - if he's got a great hand, he'll put a Hornet Queen or Myr Battlesphere down right quick. If he draws a Perilous Vault, he'll wait until after people have removed his threats or until opponents put down a bigger threat before he plays a Perilous Vault. But if he has a less than great hand, the Vault gets slapped down first. If anyone tries to remove it or if a threat gets too big, he activates in response. What he banks on is that he'll be able to tutor up a Myr Battlesphere with Inventer's Fair after he's activated his Perilous Vault, and that he will have more mana with tron than anyone else, so his threat will be bigger than everyone else's after the Vault is activated. He's generating GGG with forests and the typical budget-ish tron utility artifacts. I can't tell you off hand how many of each spell he's running. He tends to run multiple win-cons that each deal with other decks in our meta. He also runs Myr Retriever to get his Battlesphere back. He loves recycling stuff from his graveyard, so it's very hard to stop him from going off once he has tron assembled.

I highly recommend four things:
1) using tutors or draw/scry to improve chances of getting a Lord of the Unreal . I'm thinking Muddle the Mixture is probably near the top of the list in this department, but Serum Visions or the like would probably be helpful, too. Running both would not be overkill.
3) Cut Jace's Phantasm . It's a cool card, but without mill and there being another 32 creatures without it, I think those 4 slots can be better filled with non-creature spells.
4) fixing the description to say "Lord of the Unreal" instead of "Master of the Unreal"
1x Halimar Depths might be useful.
I've wanted to build a deck with Pongify in it for a long time. I don't think it's a super fit here, but I like my aggro decks to have removal and there's not a lot of options in blue.
Imprisoned in the Moon comes to mind as another removal option.
I think you could afford to drop as many as 4 lands. You have a very low AVG CMC, so it will be better to draw creature spells more frequently. I suggest dropping 1-2x, playtesting a bunch and going from there.

I really like Time of Need in my Arcades deck, 'fender-benders. It means I can run 2x Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive (instead of 4), and also tutor up a 1x Shalai, Voice of Plenty when sideboarded in. It also allowed me to completely drop Assault Formation , which, while it might sound crazy, is good. Paying AF's 1 to swing and not drawing a card when casting a Defender just makes it so much less fun to play.

Thanks so much for the +1, and lovely comment, Suns_Champion! Made my day! Happy Tapping to you, too!!

I think Harmonize might be more useful than Explore - after all, there's only 20 lands here, so the odds of getting the ramp effect are thin. For les mana, Serum Visions or even Opt would probably be more useful, too.

Thanks a bunch for the +1, deividmirom!

I've been working on a sort of aggro turbo fog with Smothering Tithe . With all the extra draws, it just seems like an interesting benefit element. (I've been exploring Smothering Tithe like crazy as soon as it was spoiled) Just thought it was worth mentioning.
