Last_Laugh, yeah I imagine I probably will add Chaos Warp back in soon, I just thought that with Venser, Shaper Savant it wouldn't be too bad since i can tutor for him quite easily to bounce it when needed. Although if it comes back down I can't recur him to bounce it again which would be an issue.
yeah Plumb the Forbidden looks really great. I missed that it was an instant when I first saw it lol. I probably will put it in soon.
I used to have Seize the Spotlight in the deck and it was pretty good value wise, however I often drew it when it wouldn't have performed that well like after a boardwipe or when there wasn't really any good creatures to take so my opponents would just choose to let me steal a creature. Perhaps I was just unlucky XD although to be fair I do tend to try and keep opponents boards clear of creatures.
Thanks for the suggestions!

Wait A Second: As long as this spell is on the stack, all players stop what they are doing. They cannot cast spells or activate abilities until the spell resolves.
You may cast ~ without paying its mana cost if an opponent has casts 6 or more spells in a turn, or if a opponent has spent more than 10 mana during their turn.
End the turn, and exile any number of permanents, spells, or abilities on the stack.
"Ok, Deadeye Navigator resolves. It will Soul-Bond to Peregrine Drake, and then I'll activate the Soul-Bonded ablity. I have (Insert number here) mana. I'll then cast Venser, Shaper Savant, and I can lock out the game. Any responses?"

seems fun! You can add Ugin, the Ineffable (removal and combo, also pretty good janky draw with a sac outlet)/ Foundry Inspector/ Etherium Sculptor and The Reality Chip to draw your deck with Sensei's Divining Top.

One, maybe it would be funny to call the list Hinata-Kun XD
Hullbreaker Horror: I have been really loving this card lately, it is expensive (CMC) but helps to keep control of the board
Drannith Magistrate: stop you oppnenets from casting their commanders
You could run Orbs with Urza and Opposition
Thassa, Deep-Dwelling: slow, but consistent
Spellseeker: search your X spells
Cyberdrive Awakener: if you want to win off your rocks and treasure tokens
Disorder in the Court: this can help for draw, protection, and "Blinking"
Smoke Spirits' Aid: I don't know if it fits, but could be spicy
win cons (Outside of combos)
Metallurgic Summonings: you make big tokens and gives recursion.
Monastery Mentor: tokens
Shark Typhoon: tokens
Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant is made for this list
Urza, Lord High Artificer: can make use of a lot of artifact tokens that can be created in this list and can be an outlet for infinite mana to cast your deck
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite: probably good if you run a lot of token producing cards like Saheeli, Sublime Artificer, Monastery Mentor, Shark Typhoon, Metallurgic Summonings, Manaform Hellkite, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Kykar, Wind's Fury

amicdeep thanks for you're comment, good insights
Flickerwisp and Reflector Mage are strong cards but Venser, Shaper Savant putting the permanent/spell back into their hand with instant speed is just harder for my opponent to deal with even though it does cost more mana. Will test them anyway though, you never know.
The flip lands could be a very nice combat trick but am trying to avoid enter tapped lands as the 3 and 4 drops are just so important to have on time.
Professor of Symbology would be a great card against slower decks to find everything when you need it but to have mainboard might just be a bit too slow but I will definitely test it mainboard.
Hallowed Respite I really like a flashback blink spell to accelerate ETB value but at sorcery and 2 mana and only non-legendary I'm not sure.
From testing I think just a Rogue's Passage giving unblockable works just as good in the situation you would want a manland and doesn't enter tapped or need snowlands.

Restoration Angel does seem pretty good but I think the other 4 cmc cards might just be better.
Kitchen Finks is a great suggestion for stalling out aggro match up didn't realize you can reset it's persist counters. Good find

i’m not sure you’re running enough lands here. If you don’t start with a card draw-engine with Wall of Omens and Ephemerate, I can see you being stuck on 2 lands too often. I’d suggest going up to 22-23 lands
I’m not convinced you need Flickerwisp or Venser, the Sojourner. They just don’t seem great here & you akready have plenty-enough good ways to flicker for value. I’d suggest replacing them with more good flicker-targets, some suggestions below.
I can highly recommend Watcher for Tomorrow. It helps dig for the exact card you need in any given matchup, which can get you out of some sticky situations.
It may be a little beyond your budget, but adding 1-3 Skyclave Apparition would work well here also.
Just to show you, this deck also. It’s obviously going to be out of the price-range for the moment, but if you’re able to include green in your landbase, you get access to a ton of powerful (& cheap) cards that love being flickered. It’s possibly a direction to work towards as more of a long-term goal.
