Staggering Insight

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

Enchanted creature gets +1/+1 and has lifelink and "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, draw a card."

Magus of the Moat absolutely has to be in here.

Also, I would consider Mindshrieker, because it can deal an enormous amount of damage on its own. And in my humble opinion, Mana Leak is better than Miscast, even though it costs one more. Your low curve can handle the difference.

Finally, I'd say that you really need some kind of draw power. Either Staggering Insight or Reconnaissance Mission would do the trick.

Cheers!

Some good enchantment-based card draw to note:

Kumena's Awakening - this would be an excellent choice on a budget. You should always have The City's Blessing. My favorite "not-Rhystic-Study" replacements.

Dire Undercurrents - amazing card but expensive. If I were you I would make this one of your first upgrades. Seems perfect.

Curious Obsession

Vampiric Rites

Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Greed and Erebos, God of the Dead - Alela's lifelink would help pay

Erebos, Bleak-Hearted is playable in this deck.

Dark Prophecy - the power is there, but might be difficult early.

Military Intelligence should be reliable. Great for two mana

Staggering Insight

Curse of Verbosity - I think it's kind of underrated. Should be good with your flyers and might take some heat off you. It's no Rhystic Study.

Rhystic Study duuuuhhhhh

Fall from Favor

Ophidian Eye

Insight - huuuge upside, potentially useless. I love it though!

Monastery Siege - it's basically drawing half a card per turn for three mana, but can protect your creatures if it's that part of the game. It's all right

Verity Circle - Huge upside, potentially useless

Phyrexian Arena - one of the best, but the price tag may not be worth it in this deck since you're running blue and can easily take advantage of flying creatures

Court of Ambition - it should be easy to get The Monarch whenever you want with your flyers

Marchesa's Decree is all right. Probably better in other decks

Sanctum of Calm Waters and Honden of Seeing Winds

Soul Ransom - might be fun to recur.

Teferi's Ageless Insight - might be good, better in decks where the commander draws cards. The power is there though.

Coastal Piracy

Kindred Discovery - ridiculous power with a ridiculous price tag to match. It's not a "may" ability so you can easily deck yourself. Isn't that winning though?

Patient Rebuilding - statistically draws one card a turn. Potentially high ceiling, can also whiff. Better for decks with graveyard synergies. Animate Dead and Necromancy are excellent, and Dance of the Dead is playable.

Mind Unbound

Well of Ideas

Hey nice deck! The way i see it you can focus more one one direction of this deck and use the other for support: either auras or equipment. Aura Focus: Add: Archon of Sun's Grace Ashiok's Erasure Boon Satyr Copy Enchantment Curiosity Darksteel Mutation Dissipation Field Hydra's Growth Gift of Paradise Hypnotic Siren Ichthyomorphosis Idyllic Tutor Kenrith's Transformation Plea for Guidance Psychic Impetus Unflinching Courage

Remove: Masterwork of Ingenuity Puresteel Paladin Explorer's Scope Indomitable Archangel Catti-brie of Mithral Hall Resolute Archangel Valiant Endeavor Serum Visions Brainstorm Angelic Gift Unsettled Mariner Cold-Eyed Selkie Military Intelligence

Equipment Focus: Add: Balan, Wandering Knight Behemoth Sledge Belt of Giant Strength Golem-Skin Gauntlets Kemba, Kha Regent Mask of Memory Mirrormade Paradise Mantle Prying Blade Quest for the Holy Relic Whispersilk Cloak

Remove: Resolute Archangel Ajani's Chosen Valiant Endeavor Gryff's Boon Angelic Gift Unsettled Mariner Military Intelligence Cold-Eyed Selkie Serum Visions Brainstorm Explorer's Scope Indomitable Archangel

And if you dont want to focus on one this would be a more Varied apporach incorporating a little from both Both Focus: Add: Fleecemane Lion Geist of Saint Traft Kiora's Follower Mirrormade Spirit Mantle Staggering Insight Utopia Sprawl Curiosity Beast Within Archon of Sun's Grace Curiosity Darksteel Mutation Dissipation Field Idyllic Tutor Unflinching Courage Behemoth Sledge Kemba, Kha Regent Mirrormade Quest for the Holy Relic Whispersilk Cloak Kenrith's Transformation

Mick-Tis those are great suggestions, thank you. Staggering Insight is already in the deck, but I am going to find ways to slot the others in. Any cut suggestions?

HyrdaDOOM666: Skycat Sovereign and Pride of the Clouds (preferably the latter) are definitely on my radar, and will probably be my next addition. Perhaps Staggering Insight could be another target for Zur the Enchanter to fetch. Lord_Olga: It's not uncommon to not see my enchants in games. I guess the sensible thing to do would be to bump up Favorable Winds , but personally I just like Zur the Enchanter . I completely agree about Jubilant Skybonder , it's kind of just there at the moment because I have it. As for Mausoleum Wanderer , at first I also thought it was a bit iffy on paper, but in testing it's been surprisingly good. I put it in as a 1 drop flyer, but actually the counter ability has been much more useful than I would have anticipated. Don't forget, Empyrean Eagle and Favorable Winds buff it and its ability as well. Pilfering Imp is a good suggestion, but I'm not so sure about paying 3 times the cost for the Duress ability. It would mean I'd have less chance to snipe a problem card before dropping something important, which is why I'm playing it. I'm a bit confused about Watcher of the Spheres being maxed. Personally, I was thinking of cutting it altogether. Assuming I take out Jubilant Skybonder and Zur the Enchanter , that only leaves 3 Empyrean Eagle which benefit from the cost reduction effect. At that point, mightn't I as well just replace him with Pride of the Clouds ?

Anyway thanks for your suggestions
