Cards to consider cutting:

  • 4x Island
  • Highland Lake
  • Izzet Guildgate
  • Thunderstaff
  • Star Compass
  • Sphere of the Suns
  • Gravitational Shift
  • Reins of Power
  • Blustersquall
  • Aether Gale
  • Laquatus's Creativity
  • Careful Consideration

Pretty solid list, I'm always a fan of Curiosity combos too (as I'm sure you know). I'd probably play like Sudden Spoiling over Polymorphist's Jest and like Mystic Retrieval over Bond of Insight though.

You could also play something like Jace's Archivist to combo with your Narset, Parter of Veils , but I don't know how much of a monster you're trying to be.

Waste Not with the Sire is awesome. Better keep people drawing cards tho. Dark Deal , Burning Inquiry and Collective Defiance are in your colors. Blue offers Jace's Archivist , Windfall and Magus of the Jar .

Pretty much every wheel deck needs Notion Thief . From War of the spark you can also consider Narset, Parter of Veils ! I think Alhammarret's Archive and Teferi's Puzzle Box both are pretty nice too, depending on the powerlevel you're going for. Another nice creature is Chasm Skulker , and seeing as you're going to fill your graveyard up pretty fast, maybe consider Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time or Visions of Beyond ? And also Magus of the Wheel is a card similar to Jace's Archivist

Oh, and I almost forgot! Mizzix's Mastery to cast all those nice and juicy instants/sorceries you discarded for free

Thanks for the suggestions cdkime! I agree, mill is definitely not the most ideal strategy. It was quite a challenge to find enough ways to affect the table instead of just the typical "target player" method. Which is why I quite liked cards such as Jace's Archivist , Windfall , Whispering Madness . But I do like a good challenge and it will be interesting to bring something different to the table :)

You're so right about Necrotic Ooze , that would be monstrous! Definitely going to find some room for that one. And that's an interesting idea using the opponents graveyard to get some extra value out of it. My thoughts were to maybe exile the graveyard but I was kind of conflicted with that tactic because my creatures take value out of it. I'm going to work in those suggestions. thanks.

I would also typically include more mana rocks such as the Signet and I think a revised version will certainly include more.

So the idea for fast mill is Golgari Grave-Troll Satyr Wayfinder and Jace's Archivist ( which i havent tried and will replace some narcomoebas ) and retrieve some creatures with some mill is Grapple with the Past , i will post the deck now and you can see if it is good
