Beamsplitter Mage acts as a mini Zada/Mirrorwing Dragon. Makes all of your targeted cantrips pretty good!

Also there's a few extra cantrips to consider. - Leap - Cloak of Feathers - Cerulean Wisps - Renegade Tactics - Thermal Flux

Bad cantrips that are just good for triggering Zada/Magecraft/Mirrorwing - Twisted Image - Chilling Trap - Fleeting Distraction - Stream of Unconsciousness

Lutri as a companion doesn't change anything except for the fact he won't take up a slot and you need to pay to put him in your hand.

Lutri makes a single copy so assuming you have something to trigger the innate copy, you will get a total of three.

Beamsplitter Mage will make a single extra copy of any spell that targets him. He will not go infinite with any other you have listed in this thread.

I'm talking about Lutri as a companion. Wouldn't Mentor's Guidance copy to make 4 of them? That would be a great drawing engine. And would Show of Confidence and Beamsplitter Mage work infinitely?

One thing to note about Ink-Treader's ability is that it requires you to play the card for its ability to trigger, so bouncing a copy of a spell off of Beamsplitter Mage and targeting Ink-Treader Nephilim will not activate its ability again. There are work-arounds, such as God-Eternal Kefnet , which allows you to cast a copy of an instant or sorcery, and both the original spell and the copy can target and activate Ink-Treader's ability. Isochron Scepter is a great way to reuse an instant, but really infinite mana with Dramatic Reversal is the way to go.

The cantrips are an excellent choice, rip through your deck and have every answer and wincon in a few turns.

Hi nathanielhebert,thanks for your comment! The problem of this deck is the lack of control,if you use Slip Through Space and Fists of Flame on Beamsplitter Mage draw a lot of cards and the opponent can’t keep up. But it cannot do control and draw :(

king-saproling Dude, thank you for catching the Tribute Mage thing! I was trying to avoid having a confusing board-state with copy engines like Zada, Hedron Grinder or Beamsplitter Mage so I will trying leaving them out this iteration. Dockside Extortionist and Peregrine Drake look like too much value for me to pass on. I'll probably pull in Cackling Counterpart over Quasiduplicate and either Murmuring Mystic or Docent would probably help my survival rate. I was torn on Knowledge Pool, it doesn't trigger if I return the spell to my hand... is there something I'm missing?

Zada, Hedron Grinder is a major upgrade from Beamsplitter Mage for 2 more mana

Temur Sabertooth is a repeatable Deputy of Acquittals for 2 more mana

I would switch out Neutralize for something more cost-effective (you'll probably never want to discard it). Consider Counterspell or Arcane Denial

Volcanic Geyser is good, Fall of the Titans is better.

Check out Sea Gate Restoration  Flip and Praetor's Counsel

Another good thing to keep in mind is that Golos' activated ability does not bode well for spells with (X) in their mana costs, because X will always be 0 because you have to cast it "without paying it's mana cost"
