Mission Briefing

Instant

Surveil 2, then choose an instant or sorcery card in your graveyard. You may cast this card this turn. If that card would be put into your graveyard this turn, exile it instead. (To surveil 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest on top of your library in any order.)

I love railgunning, and it's something I still play in my own monoblue EDH deck. A few recommendations:

Spell Crumple and Hinder both let you remove a problem card, and help enable the combo. Plus, they back up clique if the cost gets too high.

You're always going to want open mana, so I'd recommend a few more rocks. Being able to flash in your commander means you can spend a few turns just casting ramp, and still have mana up for counters or commander.

Snapcaster Mage and Mission Briefing are another pair of cards that can let you reuse things already in your graveyard. Mnemonic Wall acts as both blocker, and lets you return a combo piece to your hand.

I am looking to brew something looking a lot like this... My thoughts are to have synergy with Consider, Mission Briefing and See the Truth.

Any reason for not running some number of Drown in the Loch?

Overall I think this looks pretty cool! Part of me wants to say Mission Briefing would be good in here too.

I mean in this kind of deck, hitting 1 sorcery + 1 instant + 1 creature + 1 land in your graveyard should be extremely easy, especially with DRC digging. But more importantly, DRC lets you filter your draws and bin more creatures for you to unearth later. I really think the card does basically everything the deck wants to do, but it is what it is.

Unless your meta is SUPER enchantment heavy, Feed the Swarm mainboard doesn't really make sense.

I'm not sure I understand your reasoning behind not running any basics? It's less about "stopping" Blood Moon and more if you have a single basic island and a single basic swamp in your deck, you can every single card in your deck besides Mission Briefing (97.6% of your nonland cards). Whereas if you don't you can play any basics, you can only cast 31.7% of your nonland cards. That is a huge difference. Also, effects like Field of Ruin and Path to Exile are fairly common.

Anyways I do like the concept of the deck, even if I don't agree with all of your card choices. Any time I can play Dreadhorde Arcanist is a good time.

Personally I think Mission Briefing is probably too slow for this type of deck.

Lack of Fatal Push is a little weird.

Persist is so, so much worse than both Claim and Unearth since all your creatures are 2 or less cmc. I really don't think you need 9 reanimation spells either, so I'd definitely cut this one at the very least.

I highly recommend 4 Dragon's Rage Channeler for another playset of aggressive 3 power one-drop flyers.

Since Delver is more of a tempo deck, Stitcher's Supplier kind of stands out as a card that doesn't do too much. I'd probably cut it.

I see you already have Ledger Shredder in the maybeboard, I'd definitely slot at least 2 in the mainboard that card is crazy strong in this type of deck.

I prefer Consider over Thought Scour since it lets you filter a bit and you don't need to turbo fill your graveyard with Scour since Jace will be flipped easily anyways.

Expressive Iteration is a really powerful card advantage spell, also pretty cheap.

1-2 Spell Pierce is pretty strong in the current meta as well.

Drown in the Loch is a good counterspell/removal spell.

Portent, Crawlspace, Web of Inertia, Dream Tides, War Tax, Glacial Chasm, Monastery Siege, Cryptic Command, Extract, Portcullis, Dissipation Field, Overburden, Archmage Ascension, Frozen Aether, Reins of Power, Rapid Hybridization, Siren's Call, Cyclonic Rift, Mission Briefing, Reality Shift, and Resculpt are just a few you could potentially use. You can very easily go creatureless if you want to. You just have to lean on different win conditions and use cards like Ward of Bones /etc.

I love your support creatures but I feel like you should bring in a Snapcaster Mage. That and Mission Briefing will help to recur counterspells and removal on opponents turn since Kess, Dissident Mage can't do it.

This deck as shown now seems more "turbo" than "control" to me with that Ad Nauseam, Simian Spirit Guide, Grim Monolith etc. If you want to lean in to the turbo storm line consider Baral, Chief of Compliance, Archmage Emeritus and Yawgmoth's Will

Baral, Chief of Compliance + Lotus Petal + Brain Freeze + Underworld Breach = storm off till your own deck is gone and then usually have enough Brain Freeze copys to mill all opponents.

There are ways to make a storm or magecraft win with Archmage Emeritus, Storm-Kiln Artist and Underworld Breach but that would mean raising the curve and running cards that are bad topdeck by themselves.

+1 this is a proper cedh deck! Check out my "cruel control" version of Kess cedh Pox Diamond to see what I mean about the difference between "turbo/storm" and "control". Also I have a pretty extensive maybe board there that might have some spice edhrec won't show you.

Absolutely LOVE it... I have a Jeskai variant and some tools I use that I really like are Mission Briefing to be used as as a Snapcaster Mage value effect and Consider along side it... because im in I use Dragonlord Ojutai for my finisher but I think Iymrith, Desert Doom could be really good to maybe split with your Dragonlord Silumgar.

some juicy Sideboard tech you can consider is Sweltering Suns for a sweeper that cycles if its dead and Narset, Parter of Veils...Alpine Moon/Cleansing Wildfire I guess?

Overall i really love the bones of this build... i wish you success and happy brewing!
