You don't need an additional piece to make sure instant's don't kill you with Lore Broker :) Just activate it before their draw step.

I'm assuming you:

Route 1) Stength Draw with Worse Creature Tempo

Cut cards that are good tempo plays but otherwise don't help you win by drawing cards. The idea is that you draw into Approach of the Second Sun , cast it, and then trigger your draw abilities to be able to cast it again very quickly. I assume this deck isn't trying to be super competitive. I added a little recursion for toolbox, while still being group hug.



Side Note: I really don't like Sunscorch Regent but I get why he's in the deck as part of a wincon. I just feel Toothy, Imaginary Friend and Pir, Imaginative Rascal are very similar and provide much more to the deck in an obvious way, but they cost $8 as a pair so I didn't want to formally recommend them.

Have Simic Ascendancy , cast Toothy, Imaginary Friend and Pir, Imaginative Rascal , draw 5 cards with in game triggers which puts 10 on toothy which puts 20 on Simic Ascendancy .

Inspiring :)

Cunning Lethemancer seems very interesting. I was questioning if it would be a good addition. My only worries are that it might receive allot of attention from opponents and puts the game in a stalemate. Lore Broker would be more opponent-friendly while achieving the same discard goal, but this might benefit opponents more than us.

Is Trepanation Blade worth it?

Also Vraska's Contempt looks like a good addition!

If you wanted a win condition you could always go with Laboratory Maniac or Necrotic Ooze. Since most mass discard effects will be global, you will easily be able to pitch your win conditon and bring it back with Dread Return.

Also, don't forget to run Geth's Grimoire. I have also been a fan of Lore Broker combined with stuff like Liliana's Caress.

Lore Broker, perhaps?

I hate to break it to you guys, but any leyline's triggered ability, in the starting hand, does not utilize the stack, cannot be responded to, and is prior to the game starting. Thoughtseize will NOT do anything to a turn 0 leyline. This is part of the reason why I run cards like Wipe Away in my sideboard. If you have access to lands that are actual duals, i.e. Sunken Hollow or Watery Grave, so they don't mess with your spells looking at number of swamps, then you can run these cards without any problems.

I tend to run my discard deck so that I have access to cards like Wistful Thinking and Lore Broker, which I think are much better than some other options. The broker isn't a targeted ability and will get around a leyline and it is especially useful when they are empty handed while your Caress is sitting there doing nothing. The broker could also utilize any madness cards out there. I'm also a fan of creatures like the good old Hypnotic Specter, but call me old fashion. You may want to look into Quest for the Nihil Stone if you're worried about Leylines. Quest doesn't target like Rack does.

Quietus Spike and Inkfathom Infiltrator are on their way in as we speak. (Replacing Coat of Arms and Lore Broker). The deck plays well 1v1, a little weaker in multiplater but given the right tools, it can defintely find its way. Probably the most fun deck I've played. Bitterblossom and Bribery proxies on their way ;)
