With how many instant and sorcery’s you have,Delver of Secrets  Flip will transform quite often. Saw It Coming will most likely be better then dissipate unless the meta really wants the exile and Behold the Multiverse will go nicely with saw it coming too

Perplex is one of those cards that's always worse than you want it to be; they'll only ever discard their hand if it's preferable for them to do so. I know it has the transmute option, but it might be worth ditching it or playing other dig spells - things like Opt , Sleight of Hand , Behold the Multiverse , etc. Drift of Phantasms and Dimir Infiltrator suffer from a similar downside, in that the front side really doesn't do much. Archmage's Charm is a really solid, flexible option I would recommend, and even the usual suspects of Snapcaster Mage , Cryptic Command , etc

I also think Blue Sun's Zenith is a better wincon than Mind Grind , since there may be situations where you need to use it to dig for value, and Grind doesn't offer that flexibility. If you stick with transmute spells, BSZ is also a 3 drop.

Finally, I think 4x basic swamp in a deck with so much in the way of UU is a high risk; fetches, checklands, or even Clearwater Pathway  Flip offer some more insurance against manascrew.

Cheers!

I like the idea; I'd consider subbing out Quench for Censor and/or some Jwari Disruption  Flip. I also like Frantic Inventory , and more importantly with Mystic Sanctuary , Tragic Lesson is an absolute house. I also think that without looting effects, 4x Mission Briefing is a little much; honestly, card advantage is probably more important than recursion, as you're not looking to max out big spells so much as play a lot of them. If you mainboard some mass-bounce, it could be worth it to run a couple Briefing, but I think things like Behold the Multiverse , Chart a Course , etc could be more helpful overall.

I also think 3x Spell Pierce seems high - Negate or maybe Neutralize could be better. Curious Homunculus  Flip also benefits more with extra spells with colorless in their cost.

Also: since Anticipate doesn't trigger Chasm Skulker , it may be worth swapping for Deliberate or one of the other mentioned draw spells.

I also think with the full playset of Sanctuary, 4x Castle Vantress is too much as they don't add to island count; I think going down to just one or maybe two would be better, especially since by the time you'd be using them for value, you're generally either already winning or already losing.

I think Unsubstantiate is decent, but especially if you swap the other soft counters for hard ones, it may be worth changing out for Into the Roil to have a spell on four that clears the way for Skulker and adds to your draw count.

Finally, another card to consider (probably over Homunculus) is Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip. Especially with lots of draw spells, you're likely to flip it early, and it both adds to draw count for Skulker and once flipped won't be bounced - though it would be better in a build with Frantic Inventory or other graveyard synergies to get it going ASAP. I think this swap is more of a tossup compared to the stuff suggested above, though.

I want mono U to work in pioneer, so I love this. Cheers!

One easy and functional change I'd suggest is Oust or something similar over Path. BTL might be coming up, but at least per mtggoldfish, Blitz is still the most-played deck. Giving them lands just hurts so, so much.

The difference in price might also let you afford some other sweepers, which would be nice in a list like this.

I also REALLY like Behold the Multiverse in UWx.

Cheers!

Hello, I saw your post about the deck and wanted to make a couple of suggestions.

You have some cards I think are of dubious value in your deck and would like to suggest removing them. You should delete the following cards; Thought Scour This card adds nothing to this deck's game plan. Spore Frog . Cut these and replace them with Empty the Warrens . Empty the Warrens can make blockers, increases your storm count, and can storm for even more goblins.

I also feel I have to make the obligatory mention about some of the better turbo fog and storm creatures you could replace them with; Augur of Bolas , Guttersnipe , Sprite Dragon , Snapcaster Mage and Electrostatic Field . If you really need to have a creature, make it a 4 of any of the creatures I just mentioned. But dump the frogs. If you really think fog effects are your answer then cut them for Haze of Pollen . Haze at least can raise storm counts or be cycled when the battlefield does not have serious threats in play. And the frogs would be gone.

Cut Nature's Spiral . It is too narrow and does not advance your win condition. I am also not happy with your enchantments either. I think I see your game plan using them but they hurt your odds of Storming off on your opponent and really only hurt yourself by slowing down your deck. I would cut Gaseous Form for sure. And suggest cutting Abundant Growth . I would replace these with copies of Echoing Truth and Growth Spiral . Both of these cards do the same thing those cards do in the short run, then they raise your storm counts and help win the game in the long run.

Your deck is missing two things that help turbo decks and burn/storm decks. Card advantage and mana rituals. Consider these cards when thinking about what to replace your cuts with or consider making room for some of them; Desperate Ritual , Pyretic Ritual , or Manamorphose . If you plan to keep Abundant Growth in your deck then these rituals have lesser value but I would consider dumping the growth for a playset of one of these or more depending on your card count. They up your storm count and provide the mana to cast more cards in the same turn adding even more to your storm counts.

For card advantage, consider making room for the cards like these; Opt , Sleight of Hand , Serum Visions , Pieces of the Puzzle , Behold the Multiverse , Brainstorm or Frantic Search . Some of these are cheap to cast with a small return but will really accelerate the deck and raise your counts. The bigger cost ones have bigger payoffs for card advantage but will make slower turns. Some other cards to consider are Browbeat , Risk Factor and the blue jump-start card Chemister's Insight . You don't see Risk Factor or Chemister's Insight in competitive decks as much but they are both good alternatives that can keep providing advantage or damage. I would consider adding 4-8 of some of these cards to give you card advantage and help refill your hand for bigger storms.

Two more suggestions that may have a place in the deck; Silundi Vision  Flip can replace a generic island while letting you dig pretty deep to find one of your win conditions. You may even consider adjusting the mana base to make room for maybe even 2 of these.

Consider adding Past in Flames to the deck. This card really increases the chances of a win especially during long games by letting you replay all of your burn spells from the yard. It needs a big mana investment but it can finish a game depending on the state of your graveyard. I would seriously consider replacing two copies of Call to Mind and/or Nature's Spiral with a total of 2 copies of Past in Flames . I would keep it at two copies, it does need a big mana state to really work out for you and going to 3 or 4 copies will hurt the deck instead of help it.

Lastly, consider going to 4 copies of the good cards you already have in the deck. You should raise the counts of Lightning Bolt and Shock to 4 each for sure. I would also consider dropping copies of Fog to raise your counts of Moment's Peace . Generally, if you do need to fog the field it will happen later in the game so the mana cost is not as big a burden and the flashback makes them awesome.

Hello,

Personally I always feel like 4 Heartless Act is a bit much because if you keep drawing them when there's something with counters on it it just feels so bad. You could swap 2 of them for 2 Eliminate so you have more options available to you.

At first I was a big fan of Behold the Multiverse but after playing it in different decks it always ended up being the card that gets cut. I feel like even Frantic Inventory ends up giving more value with less mana commitment. You could also consider Mazemind Tome since the life gain can be relevant, and it works in a similar way if you like the idea of paying 2 now and drawing later for 2.

I have to admit, I find it difficult to see how Test of Talents and Covetous Urge work well together since Test of Talents usually tries to hit big value cards, which then removes all possibilities to hit those same big value cards later with Covetous Urge , unless they have one in the graveyard already. If you like how Test of Talents gets rid of a playset of cards by itself, you might want to pair that with Ashiok's Erasure instead to push that even further.

I find Agonizing Remorse to be a strange addition too considering that the deck is meant to be a "home" for Covetous Urge since it exiles the card, meaning you are removing what's probably a good card from the game instead of putting it in the graveyard to hit it later with Covetous Urge . Exiling also doesn't work with Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip when removing cards from their hand.

Actually, I must say a discard deck seems like an odd choice for Covetous Urge anyway since ideally it should be used on cards in hand to hit your opponent even harder. Do you expect to hit big with it after removing all their juicy stuff with other discard effects?

Anyway, this is just my 2 cents, hopefully it's a little useful.

Cheers!
