Ponder might not be a bad idea and I have a few of them, Gitaxian Probe is also decent for knowing when to save a counter spell and I think I have one of those as well. Three Wishes is a really interesting card that I think would be a lot more fun in commander; I have a couple. Frantic Search might also be decent if you don't like what's in your hand. Cyclonic Rift is also really good and despite it being expensive I'm pretty sure we own one. Talrand, Sky Summoner is also a classic for this kind of deck, and there's also Murmuring Mystic . One of my favs that I think would work really well is The Locust God . Jace's Archivist is really interesting as well and can help you if you're top decking and hurt everyone else, another great option for the same thing is Whispering Madness . Torrential Gearhulk might be slightly pricey but he matches well with what you're doing. Lim-Dul's Vault is also super handy and can be pretty zaney especially for it being cheap. Disallow is pretty crazy too for blocking activated abilities. Bolas's Citadel is also worth looking at. Cursed Totem is really expensive but would also be CRAZY in this deck. Also check out Propaganda .
As far as removal goes, Go for the Throat is always a good option.There's also Slaughter Pact and Force of Despair . Preemptive removal like Sadistic Sacrament would be a great idea as well. Decree of Pain is good but it's mana cost is kind of high; Life's Finale is an equally viable card. Unsommon is super cheap, Boomerang , Undo , Snap , do more or less the same thing.

The changes I'm testing right now, to fit a Cloudstone package and a discount Cephalid Breakfast.
Wheel of Misfortune was just too hard to control effectively, and I can't force my opponents to draw with Narset or Hullbreacher out (also, making it work right often cost too much life if I was the archenemy). Whirlpool Warrior does that trick better.
Cephalid Constable was cute and won me some games, but it always left everyone unhappy at the end of the game. Cephalid Illusionist costs one less mana, mills cards to give Vadrok fuel, and sometimes can help on defense.
Speaking of Illusionist, I'm testing Lightning Greaves to mill my whole deck along with him (by alternating between Illusionist and another creature). I'd rather run Nomads en-Kor , but I'm not running any white... Lightning Greaves can help protect something like Toothy or Con Sphinx anyway, so hopefully it's not TOO bad on its own.
Goblin Engineer can fetch Curio, and Cloudstone Curio can reset Vadrok's mutation, or simply go infinite with Cloud of Faeries and/or Dockside Extortionist (potentially with help from Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip).
Intuition has been in and out before, but I'm testing it to try packages like Lore Drakkis / Snap + Underworld Breach + Dockside Extortionist / Sea-Dasher Octopus (assuming I already have Vadrok on field). At the very least, it's essentially an Entomb for Underworld Breach , since no opponent in their right mind would ever allow me to have that card in hand.

Thanks for the kudos, Strangelove!
Wayfinder is sort of a pet card for me, I've been looking for a place to best take advantage of it and clones just felt right! TFH and Augur are just little value engines in a budget deck.
Parallel Thoughts seems... Really kind of good! I'll absolutely need to consider it.
Snap is just there for removal, don't worry! If I need to clone lands, I'm all over those spells that can target permanents.
Gearhulk wasn't on my radar due to price, but I was initially running Spark Double so I can't really talk about price since they're in the same range. Scholar just seems a bit CMC costly to me, but that recursion is nice!

Here's my WIP build, Orvar Clones!
Aside from the body and tempo, cards like Merfolk Wayfinder, Augur of Bolas, Triton Fortune Hunter don't seem that useful to me as clone targets. I went for Wavebreak Hippocamp and fat-draw sphinxes like Sandstone Oracle.
Just a reminder, Snap, etc. don't clone lands (you the player chooses them, so they're not spells that "target") ...They're still good tho.

Да не за что ;)
Раньше я тоже сильно сомневался в Simian Spirit Guide , во-многом из-за того что лично мне она ооочень редко приходит. Но в недавних партиях как специально несколько раз складывалось всё так, что нужна была именно одна цветная мана, анпример, когда пришло три фильтра подряд... (я их даже с горяча заменил после партии на чек-лэнды, но после ещё двух партий всё же вернул фильтры), или несколько раз было что оппоненты затапывались, а у меня всего 6 цветной маны с консультацией на руке и Кесс в зоне... в предпоследней партии была ситуация когда из прикрышек на руке был только Pyroblast и пришлось лишний ход ждать, что бы появилась дополнительная мана - в общем, одной цветной мне ощутимо нехватало для победы.
А на счёт ритуалов ты прав - ситуации редки (хотя в твоём случае артефактов много, и можно бытрее поставить изохрон с маной на активацию). Я сегодня решил попробовать Jeska's Will - она чуть более универсальна чем красные ритуалы.
Feed the Swarm - увидел в твоём листе и на днях выменял её в клубе, к сожалению она так и не пришла за прошлые партии, а сегодня, пересобирая деку (освобождал место под новое колесо и дуалку), я заменил её на Winds of Rebuke (раньше из баунса у меня был только Chain of Vapor , с недавних пор доложил ещё Snap ), т.к. баус всё же универсальнее точечного ремувала - можно своего же Dockside Extortionist фликать или другие перманенты спасать/убирать. Да, и как писал выше, - стараюсь минимизировать собственный урон.

I think you should most of all just try to grab every artifact or enchantment removal espically considering how vunerable you are to artifact hate.

So, a more fun/interactive way to play is adding in lantern control elements. Lantern of Insight, Codex Shredder and Ghoulcaller's Bell are excellent for sculpting hands you're gunna want to steal. Additionally, Snap and Hurkyl's Recall are such salt inducing cards when coupled with this commander:)

Hi Milesfuzz! Currently I'm playing in a local league, and the meta is more or less predictable. There's a bunch of Control/Miracles, some Temur Delver and a bunch of niche things. I think I like Pieces of the Puzzle quite a lot, at least more than the Snap in the main board. I considered Retraced Image but I don't see the meta as very aggressive.
On the other hand, Meditate is interesting! The problem I see with it is that, as you say, you can only cast it as you're comboing off. However I think I like Predict more milling unwanted cards from Brainstorm or Ponder for example, either early game, or while comboing off. It also has the upside of "goozling" opposing Mystic Sanctuary targets and things alike! Which admitedly, it won't come up often enough to justify it's inclusion by itself, but it's a nice upside of the card!
What I was considering these days is which pieces of graveyard hate I want in the sideboard. I think I like Grafdigger's Cage more because of Reanimator and Dreadhorde Arcanist, but stuff like Relic of Progenitus or Soul-Guide Lantern are able to draw cards in a pinch. What to you think?
Thanks a lot for your comment, it was super useful! :D
