Diviner's Portent

Instant

Roll a twenty sided die and add the number of cards in your hand to that roll. (Remember that MTG spindowns are not well weight balanced, so please roll a die that isn't an MTG spindown.)

If you roll 1-14 | Draw X cards.
If you roll 15+ | Scry X, then draw X cards.

+1 because the name is catchy. Also, you may want to add more hubs to this so more eyes can get on it.

Also, Preordain, Hakka, Whispering Raven, Cavalier of Gales, Diviner's Portent, Faerie Seer, Hedron Alignment, Mazemind Tome, Marit Lage's Slumber (swapping to Snow-Covered Island of course), Retreat to Coralhelm, Silver Raven, Thassa, God of the Sea, and Treasure Map  Flip would be good additions.

I never realized how much support a scry commander could have - If they ever add cards that create material; creatures, treasures, clues, ect. I can see this being a powerhouse in those mid-optimized games.

timelord I'd consider Diviner's Portent to work more like a better version of Blue Sun's Zenith in this deck. Since Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar allows you to have such a massive hand size, I found it really doesn't matter what you roll on the d20 (the cards you have in hand + the number you roll is usually higher than 15. In my Grazilaxx deck (Grazilaxx, Card-Draw Fiend) Diviner's Portent works as Scry X, Draw X

Always great to see a fellow scholar! Allow me to recommend some cards that have really performed well for me, Toothy, Imaginary Friend is a great card that pairs really well with Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar that you can bounce or grow with your card draw. I'd also recommend Teferi's Ageless Insight and Diviner's Portent as well.
