I'd recommend swapping out Chromatic Lantern, Prophetic Prism, and Worn Powerstone for different rocks. Lantern I don't feel is super necessary in a 2 color deck and I'd even be reluctant to run it in a 3 color deck. Usually it's run to make up for a weak land base or to help super color intensive decks, but your land base is really nice and your deck is a 2 color deck with a colorless focus. The draw from Prophetic Prism is probably going to benefit you less than ramp you'd get from another rock. Finally Powerstone comes in tapped and it's 3 cmc so it's much slower than what we'd probably like our ramp to be.

For Lantern I'd recommend Arcane Signet take its place, for Prophetic perhaps one like Prismatic Lens so you get to keep your mana fixing ability or Mind Stone so you retain the draw. Finally Powerstone could be swapped out for a Talisman of Curiosity. I personally would also swap out Commander's Sphere for an Izzet Signet but I know a lot of people like that you can tap it and then draw off of it so that's up to you.

You might also want some more card draw in this deck, maybe through cantrips like Brainstorm, Gitaxian Probe, and Ponder. There's also Skullclamp since you're running a few 1/1 token producers, and enchantments like Reconnaissance Mission and Coastal Piracy to synergize with your Thopter Spy Network.

I like this deck a lot. Hope this helps! :^)

To be clear: Mana Reflection does interact with Prophetic Prism. Activating the Prism's ability counts as "tapping a permanent for mana" because it's a mana ability with "" in the cost. It will make 2 mana of the color of your choice.

Mana Reflection has no special interaction with Prophetic Prism. When you use the ability of the Prism while Reflection is out, the Prism will product two mana of the color you choose.

There are special rules surrounding "when/if you tap [something] for mana" abilities, though. To "tap [something] for mana" requires two things. First, you have to be activating a mana ability (see below). Second, the cost for that ability must include the tap symbol (). Prophetic Prism fits these restrictions, but something like Heritage Druid does not.

For clarity, an activated mana ability requires a few things. First, it has to be able to potentially create mana. Second, it can't target, and lastly, it can't be a Loyalty ability (there are lots of example if that would help).

Hope this helps!!

I know that Mana Reflection doubles the amount of mana produced by tapping a permanent, so does it work with Prophetic Prism, since you have to pay man before tapping it?

Glaze Fiend, Glaze Fiend, Glaze Fiend.

That little guy has won me way more matches than I expected. In my Mishra's Champions I also use Esperzoa to bounce my own artifacts to play more copies of them, making glaze fiend huge in the process.

I also really like Etched Champion for some nearly guaranteed damage or for a tough blocker.

Thanks to some other suggestions, I use Prophetic Prism to help with mana but even better to bounce and replay copies to accelerate later game card draw.

I've also been experimenting with Jester's Scepter for disruption and, if I keep bouncing/replaying it, an alternate win con as I exile their entire library...

Lel copycat astrolabe. Nice. At least you still have Prophetic Prism so it's not entirely gutted.....

Love it, I've introduced Crashing Drawbridge and Overgrown Battlement to my list to ramp up mana and make the combo Green Elf Warrior tokens swing for lethal one turn faster.

I'm also using Abundant Growth and Prophetic Prism with Kor Skyfisher as a draw engine and sky defense until I find the combo.

I also like Sumala Woodshaper to find combo pieces or a timely Journey to Nowhere and it's a body to throw in front of swarming attackers.

And Pulse of Murasa plays nice in the deck bringing back destroyed Midnight Guard or Ash Barrens or Evolving Wilds, and again buying time with the life gain.

I just playtested a turn 4 win against Tron.

1) Forest, go

2) Plains, play Crashing Drawbridge

3) Forest, play Overgrown Battlement, tap Crashing Drawbridge, tap Overgrown Battlement for 2 mana and play Midnight Guard

4) Play Presence of Gond on Midnight Guard, create infinite Elf Tokens, tap Crashing Drawbridge, swing for lethal.
