You just gotta read through a few forum threads. Or go the hardcore route and just scour Gatherer to find the gems

Arcane Encyclopedia is sorta the bar that I evaluate draw engines against. It's not a bad card, but that's basically the bar. Anything that's worse should not be played but anything that's as good or better is probably ok. I played a lot of mono white, so the context is largely the same. When draw engines get cheaper than Arcane Encyclopedia they also get more restrictive, so just pick a few of the ones that fit your deck.

Jar of Eyeballs, Mazemind Tome, Phyrexian Portal, Endless Atlas, Treasure Map  Flip, Azor's Gateway  Flip, Journeyer's Kite, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Temple Bell, Liar's Pendulum, Bonder's Ornament, Eye of Yawgmoth, Icon of Ancestry, Phyrexian Grimoire and prolly a bunch more I missed.

Remember that when you play red you have access to cards like Faithless Looting, so just getting lands is fine.

There are also a few good 4 mana draw engines. Coercive Portal, Outpost Siege, Karn, Scion of Urza, Endless Horizons come to mind.

Alternatively, theres always the option of just doubling down on Skullclamp and play equipment tutors to always have it, but if it were me I would try to utilize your cool commander ;)

Lastly, I noticed you run a lot of tapped lands. Since you are playing a heavy artifact deck, mana fixing actually becomes a lot less of an issue, so I would actually advise you to just run more basics. This deck should run totally fine with three plains or three mountains in your starting hand. But you lose a lot of tempo from playing Stone Quarry and friends.

Hope this helps, and good luck with the deck!

Azor's Gateway  Flip?

If you go green Pir, Imaginative Rascal works with level counters. So does Vorel of the Hull Clade and Gilder Bairn

Experience counters also work with proliferate etc.

Hmmm, I like where this is headed!

Have you considered running more planeswalkers, particularly Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury and Karn, the Great Creator. Maybe one or both of the Ugins, if you want powerful removal?

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip also seems pretty decent for what you're trying to do here :) Maybe Mox Amber, as a no-downside Mox that also cantrips? Oath of Nissa is another super low-cost spell that gives you card advantage here. Or Azor's Gateway  Flip, for a similar purpose. Thran Temporal Gateway should allow ridiculous advantage here. Finally, you should have no problem casting The Great Henge for massive card advantage.

Epicurus Truthfully I was just looking for a way to transform Azor's Gateway  Flip Though that is an interesting card concept but this lets you transform cards that don't have a flip side how would that work?

Looks like a good start! +1

I think you would benefit from more mana rocks. Mind Stone and Arcane Signet and Sol Ring would be good inclusions (though I am not too fond of Sol Ring).

Dawn of Hope and Angelheart Vial could help you draw some cards as well.

Kabira Crossroads and Radiant Fountain and New Benalia are sone fun lands you could use. Rogue's Passage can help you take out an opponent with a big creature that is maggoty with +1/+1 counters.

Azor's Gateway  Flip and Storm Herd and Serra Avatar are fun cards that interact with your life total, which will most likely be higher than everyone else's.

Approach of the Second Sun and Test of Endurance and Celestial Convergence can offer you some more win conditions.

Hope this helps!

Great Decklist! :) Maybe it's just my Meta, but with Thassa's Oracle (should totally play this, you have instant effects for Toothy) but Tale's End does great work. Keeps commanders away, counters Thassa etc.

Laboratory Maniac personally I often have Jace in the last maybe 10 cards in the Library and Toothy with too many counters. having another way was a good choice for mne

I play Fated Infatuation//Cackling Counterpart for the Phantasmal image due to being instant.

Cyclonic Rift was already suggested, but in my Meta you need quite much interaction to stay in the game. You can't bound Toothy but this still destroys turns and wins

Azor's Gateway  Flip don't mind the exile, works great most times you have tons of cards and only one landdrop. With IsoRev filters through your deck without decking from a too big Toothy

Extract Having Omnipresent Oracles and more consitent Decks, this stops wins for 1 Mana

Perilous ResearchInstant 2 mana 2 cards for sacing your worst permanent. or Sacing Toothy to get more crads (The 2 from Perilous research won't count if you sac toothy, tho)

Overburden Even with Labman and Oracle in my deck, nearly doesn't harm you at all but, again, destroys Elfballs, TnT , Chulane etc

I still do play Mox opal, but often stuck without Metalcraft early.

Mystical dispute is great against blue spells. But really far from a good counter in any other case. Tale's End made it in for me

Personally I also really dislike Pact of Negation, having a Pact but Knowing you can't pay it makes it a feelsbad card for me. Free counter is great, but Losing isn't.

Careful Study went out for Perilous research, due to being Sorcery.

Copy Artifact Often relies on opponents. Maybe I'm missing something here, but a second Isochron is often Winmore for me.

i really love your deck, and I like the faces of new players in the LGS underestimating Toothy :D

Keep going!

Chandra, Flamecaller out Atla Palani, Nest Tender in as another cheaty card.

Neheb, the Eternal out Azor's Gateway  Flip in since it can make a lot more mana of any once color. Neheb's ability is definitely useful I just think Azor's might be better in this case though it is more difficult to get to...

Ghost Council of Orzhova out Darien, King of Kjeldor in now as long as I have with Sisay any less than lethal attack against me can be turned around to my favor. I'll likely be adding more shannenegins like this down the road.
