Glimpse of Freedom

Instant

Draw a card.

Escape—, Exile five other cards from your graveyard. (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its escape cost.)

For cheap instants that give you value as Neera does her thing:

Otherworldly Gaze, Glimpse of Freedom Radical Idea. These can be cast, then cast again from the graveyard.

As for finishers: Curse of Unbinding, Inferno Project, Soulfire Eruption, Dragonstorm, Aminatou's Augury,Clone Legion

This is an excellent idea for a deck! Burn with beaters!

My only suggestions would be that Light Up the Stage is kind of a non-bo with Isochron Scepter since you can't imprint the exiled cards. Since you are running blue and red both there are tons of cards that can recur spells from the graveyard that might be better and blue just has access to straight up draw spells. Light Up the Stage is really intended as one of the workarounds to mono-Red not having access to true draw effects that aren't attached to wheels or looting. Expressive Iteration is just a straight up better card imo when running blue splash since you get a card in hand and a card you can cast from exile. If you're really intent on running Light Up the Stage you might think about replacing the Sceptres with something that just straight copies spells (too many to list here).

For your sideboard: Izzet Charm gives you lots of options and a wheel draw. Azorius Charm gives you draw or the lifelink can be amazing on your pile of golems you just put out. The other ability is also nice for dealing with tricky indestructible creatures or the like. Peek gives you vital information and cantrip draw, but I get it can be hard to run in a deck that is just splashing blue. Dragon's Claw will help you with a burn mirror and work with most of your cards.

Other fun stuff: Improbable Alliance synergizes with your whole deck plan if you add in more of the card draw as does Saheeli, Sublime Artificer and The Royal Scions

Other fast card draw: Fire Prophecy and Glimpse of Freedom

Thank you both very much for you input! I went to my local card shop and made a few more changes to my deck. I had Neoform already, and took it out cause I didn't think it would gel, I appreciate you pointing that out to me.

These are all the changes I made:

Glimpse of Freedom ---> Brainstorm

Armory of Iroas ---> Solemn Simulacrum

Gruul Guildgate ---> Cragcrown Pathway  Flip

Khalni Garden ---> Riverglide Pathway  Flip

Rugged Highlands ---> Barkchannel Pathway  Flip

Hamletback Goliath ---> Mana Reflection

Temple of the False God ---> Glasspool Mimic  Flip

Seer's Lantern ---> Kodama's Reach

Wall of Runes ---> Llanowar Elves

Neoform ---> Burnished Hart

Replacing Burnished Hart is more so because it's a very curvy holo that sticks out in my deck too much, and drives me crazy lol.

Glimpse of Freedom might be better for the deck than Think Twice as you don't have any other need the graveyard for anything else and they cost the same overall but it would allow for you to use it in your graveyard more often.

I like the build, however I have a few comments regarding the overall play pattern of the deck.

So to summarize, I would make sure to include the following:

I would consider adding the following:

I really like this iteration of drawing out your own deck. I think Wavebreak Hippocamp is definitely mainboard material. The ability stacks, so if you can manage to have 2 or 3 out at the same time, you will really capitalize on playing Opt or Glimpse of Freedom . I think you should run 2 or 3 Wavebreak Hippocamp s, a playset of Opt , and a playset of Glimpse of Freedom . In a deck where drawing is your main way to win, it can't hurt to have at least 8 instant draw spells, especially in synergy with The Magic Mirror and the Hippocamp.

I don't see the need for a playset of Brazen Borrower . 2 would be plenty. WIth the amount of draw/scry power already present in your deck, I don't think you would need Castle Vantress . Personally it feels too steep a mana ability to play well.

I would take out Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor and the 2nd Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer and add an additional Omen of the Sea . Narset, Parter of Veils is much more solid from a control standpoint than Kasmina, and offers quicker deck cycling. Although, that last one may be a matter of preference.

Hope this helps! Ultimately how you like to play matters most. I definitely like the structure of this deck, though. Seems like it's really easy to hit Thassa's Oracle and/or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries .

P.S. - if you wanted to go the Jace, Wielder of Mysteries route, adding in Contentious Plan would do really well with getting his -8 off.
