Laboratory Maniac

Creature — Human Wizard

If you would draw a card while your library has no cards in it, you win the game instead.

I may have misspoken when I said 'self-mill'. Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is like Laboratory Maniac. Sorry for the confusion.

add a Laboratory Maniac for draw protection, or maybe a Thassa's Oracle

Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate the thought you put into it!

I agree that I could still cut a few creatures, but have a hard time deciding which ones, as I really like the ones I have included so far (I have some ideas though, Arjun, the Shifting Flame is definitely going out).

I'm definitely looking for upgrades on my counterspells, so I'm really happy with your suggestions there, and I have been thinking about an alternate win con so I think I am going to give Laboratory Maniac a go!

It looks good. I would cut a few creatures, start by looking at the 6 CMC+ ones first. You probably want to get down to 15-18 creatures.

Add in 2-3 more mana rocks and cut a land. Should be able to run with 34-35 lands with a low mana curve and more rocks.

Get rid of Cancel. There are a million 3 cmc counterspells that are cancel+. I like Admiral's Order but any other counter will work. Spell Pierce can also be a bit of a dead card once you get to the mid-game or late game.

You have enough islands that High Tide would be good. Ophidian Eye is another curiosity combo win. Could consider Laboratory Maniac or labman effect to have another wincon. Then anything that cantrips or creates positive card advantage like Preordain or Frantic Search helps with any left over slots.

There's also the Laboratory Maniac rout, where I just cantrip till I deck myself

Also, since you run the Niv-Mizzet / Curiosity combo in here, could I suggest either a Laboratory Maniac or a Jace, Wielder of Mysteries as an alternate win con? I know you can also win in this deck with Ghyrson out while doing that combo, but it may be a solid option just in case he gets removed.
