Dualcaster Mage is a personal pet card of mine. It's the best spell in each deck at the table. ;) It is a wincon with Twinflame and Heat Shimmer. With any of the flicker effects, it is infinite magecraft but I wouldn't say it's a wincon.

Had a Repercussion and a Glorybringer in play in my mono-red Neheb, the Eternal deck. One of my opponent's elf deck pops off, and he swings all out at me - I take it, and go from 40 to 2.

Next turn, untap, cast Insult / Injury, Dualcaster Mage it, swing at one of the non-elf opponents with Glorybringer, which deals 4x2x2 = 16 damage to a Llanowar Elves. Then Repercussion deals 16x2x2 = 64 damage straight to his face and kills him, even before blocks can be declared.

Wow, I get actual get to make an original comment!

First, If your looking for an additional wincon, Dualcaster Mage is a great option. Combos pretty easily with cloudshift.

Second. Empty the Warrens. With several haste enablers, you can really close out a game fast off one draw if the game stalls.

I love Zada, Hedron Grinder one of my first few decks I built because it was budget friendly but still packed a punch. The removal that is available to you because of zada is actually pretty fun you can gang up on a single target with all your creatures: Go for Blood, Soul's Fire, Arcbond,Commando Raid, Deadshot, Swift Kick.

Also like Ramble said you can use steal effects and sac your opponents creatures to cards like Goblin Bombardment or Barrage of Expendables or your classic Phyrexian Altar. The good thing about the steal cards are you can use them on your own creatures to untap your board or give haste while they also serve to steal.

A few I'd recommend although I personally don't use them:

  1. Kari Zev's Expertise: Free Cantrips for the price of one!
  2. Hijack: Artifacts why not
  3. Harness by Force: Average but with Battle Hymn it has potential to be a budget Insurrection
  4. Bond of Passion: Pricey but with six goblins on the battlefield its like you're casting six Shocks
  5. Besmirch: Goad is good
  6. Traitorous Greed: Can be used for ramp
  7. Malevolent Whispers: Pump your team or steal

Looking at your decklist we more or less have the same cards which isn't surprising Zada is a pretty linear build if you do goblin tribal, but if you break away there are a couple fun things you can do such as Chaos Warp your entire board. I would cut Dualcaster Mage and Reiterate as they don't do much for Zada because Zada already does what they do but for free. Also Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip is great.

Nullstone Gargoyle is fun with Ruric Thar. You need to cast at least 2 noncreature spells to get one spell off.

If you're going to try and put out Lifelink stuff Heartless Hidetsugu is hilarious.

Dense Foliage protects you from spells and prevents opponents from targeting their own creatures with spells.

Dualcaster Mage, Captivating Crew and Detritivore can act like Sorceries / instants

I'm reworking my Mizzix of the Izmagnus deck to be more competitive so it can compete alongside cEDH decks. While working on it I came across Naru Meha, Master Wizard. I'm running multiple Dualcaster Mage lines so I'm tempted to give her a shot but I'm going back and forth on it. Help me out by sharing your opinions to try and convince me one way or the other.

Thanks for the suggestion Kalkris. I honestly hadn't considered that combo for this deck. I think after the Chain of Smog + Professor Onyx combo blew up, it fell off my radar. The endless spoiler seasons have also made it harder to keep track of everything lol.

The only combo I was considering adding so far was Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame; I figured Dualcaster could be a decent value piece for copying spells, regardless of the combo. After the couple of games I played this weekend, I have been kicking the idea around the back of my mind of a more spell-slinger dedicated Prosper list. At the very least, I'd like to add maybe one or two more pieces of instant speed interaction, perhaps Withering Boon
