Quick question regarding the section explaining Engineered Explosives. You said you can select a value between 2-4, but Mishra is only three colors so the max Engineered Explosives can be set to is 3.

I added Coretapper that can be brought back with Emry, can be sac'ed for free, and helps with Everflowing Chalice, Engineered Explosives, Chalice of the Void shenanigans opponents aren't prepared for.

Engineered Explosives can get rid of all tokens for 2 mana as well, but comes down any time, if it's within your budget.

Just for thought, what about a blue/red (izzet) list that can use Emry, Lurker of the Loch to fill the yard with. It encourages the artifact base for casting emry and helps with the cost of playing Trash for Treasure. You could run Mishra's Bauble for value/deck manipulation with fetch lands and Engineered Explosives like the early urza decks for board control. Arcum's Astrolabe could help the mana run smoothly as well. Anyhow, just some thoughts on a framework for ya.

idk what your thoughts on listing prevention are but Crawlspace, Ensnaring Bridge, Solitary Confinement all see pretty heavy play in their niche.

I'll probably update as I come up with more of my favorites.

Thanks a lot for your comment Destroyerbirb! I definitely love the snow archetype. If you have your deck posted please share it, I would love to see more snow decks (at least for casual play).

As for your suggestions, these are my thoughts:

  • Add Diamond Faerie: the issue I have with it is that, is not only hard to cast, but the +1/+1 ability does not do a lot for me in this deck.

  • Add Phyrexian Soulgorger: is definitely a card I would consider as a one of or 2 max, because once I play it I need to win on that turn.The fact that is colorless helps a lot. Is probably worth trying.

  • Add Icehide Golem: I like this card a lot and I used to have them in the deck, but my experience with it is mostly negative. It dies to everything, it is hard to keep in in play for more than one turn.

  • Add Engineered Explosives: is definitely a card to include, I just do not own one at this moment, but is the natural replacement for Ratchet Bomb.

  • Add Pithing Needle: I do have a couple of them, the only reason I went with Sorcerous Spyglass is because this is kind of a ramp deck and 2 mana is not hard to get.

  • Remove Dryad of the Ilysian Grove: I find it hard to cut him from the deck since it not only fixes the mana, but also adds an extra snow permanent into play as early as turn 2 if you get a perfect opening hand by playing extra lands. The only way to replace it would be to lower the mana curve a lot so as to be able to put something into play every turn, like the options you suggested, Phyrexian Soulgorger and Icehide Golem are probably the best options to replace him since they are colorless and cost little mana.

Have you thought of adding Diamond Faerie for more casual play, plus Phyrexian Soulgorger as a threat and Icehide Golem. (It's such an underrated card) I play a snow deck like this, and it's fun. I would add the Engineered Explosives in the sideboard instead of the Sorcerous Spyglass, and a Pithing Needle instead of the other Sorcerous Spyglass. Also, the Dryad of the Ilysian Grove has little synergy in the deck, so I would cut it. But that's just my opinion.
