Azor's Gateway Discussion

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.
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!

Experience counters also work with proliferate etc.

Hmmm, I like where this is headed!
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?

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
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
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

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.
