I know you're looking for non-wheel card draw. I don't love cantrips in EDH unless there is a number-of-spells-matters effect in play but they can smooth out a deck a bit. Ponder , Preordain , Portent , Sleight of Hand , Serum Visions , etc. The sweet spot in around 3-5 CMC for me, ideally drawing CMC -1 but there aren't a ton of spells that efficient. I don't love Divination in EDH (2 for 3) but it's the gold-standard in 60-card decks for a quickie hand refill. There are tons of efficient cards like Divination too.

There are a ton of "draw 3, discard 1" for 4 or 5 mana, which are okay. Sift , Trial of Knowledge , and Amass the Components , for example. Many are costed for being commons, which isn't where you wanna be in EDH. There should be plenty of good, efficient cards to draw from though. At the same time, you have a lot of great high-CMC draw, like Consecrated Sphinx and Thought Reflection, so having a few Divination effects might smooth out your draws.

Some suggestions: Concentrate , Windfall , Cathartic Reunion , Plea for Power , Tidings , Nin, the Pain Artist , Finale of Revelation , Mind Spring , Braingeyser , Stroke of Genius , Blue Sun's Zenith , Fact or Fiction , Chart a Course , Ugin's Insight , Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time , Kumena's Awakening , Fevered Visions , Honden of Seeing Winds , Reverse Engineer , Read the Runes , Precognitive Perception , Distant Memories , Arcane Encyclopedia , Endless Atlas , Trail of Evidence , Theft of Dreams , Borrowing 100,000 Arrows , Nezahal, Primal Tide , Kefnet the Mindful , Cavalier of Gales , Combustible Gearhulk , Thassa, God of the Sea , Shared Discovery , Secrets of the Golden City , Vivisection , Weight of Memory , Recurring Insight , Breakthrough , Niv-Mizzet, Parun , Deep Analysis , Gush , Invoke the Firemind , Expansion / Explosion , Chandra, Flamecaller , Dragon Mage , Wild Guess , Tormenting Voice , Arch of Orazca , Runehorn Hellkite , Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , Commune with Lava .

Might I suggest Tormenting Voice instead of Wild Guess ? It's less taxing on the mana base and does the same thing.

(Nah, not really, although he did a song about Hurricanes better than them Scorpions; & some of their works are better than Rock you like a Hurricane anyway...)

After starting 2 new decks w/ more on the way, I have seen no progress for help on any of the ones seen here. I mean, all that is needed for my Xantcha, Sleeper Agent deck is 13 cuts. Nothing more. I also want to know how to make a Tana, the Bloodsower + Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder Partner Equipment Matters Voltron/GoLion Deck w/o a HUGE dependence of Tokens over Equipment; I'd like to focus more on Voltron/GoLion than even the Creation of a Saproling Army; Cathars' Crusade is GENOCIDE enough! I just want Voltron, not "Saproling Tokens" Matter to a fault that they make this GoLion have Mice Using trash that is supplied by someone who's GoLion Unit isn't Pink like her suit (Her Lion is Blue; so, why no Blue Paladin suit for her?), & is no Katie Holmes/Hiroshi Suzuishi (Yep, using both EN/JP names in case those still care.) anyway (Sorry, but she kicks more ass than the Prin-Prin replacing a dead man anyway.). So, I previously said find what is needed for this; but I never intended this to be a Sapro-Token Subtheme at all. I actually wanted to refrain from that! But since Ol' Tana simply does that, I've a change of plans. Since Tana make sapros when damaging the opponent, I ask: Is this truly necessary for a Voltron/GoLion Deck that "Doesn't" need it?

Finally, the hardest of the 3: Neheb, the Eternal Burn. As Wild Guess , Tormenting Voice & Cathartic Reunion are all cut, I still need cuts, yes, but I also want ways to do Card Advantage in Mono-. That said, Artifice seems to be the only way to do this. Once we're done w/ that, I'd actually like an effort to actually make cuts. So, any ideas for Artifact Draw, & separate cuts? Ol' Kaite Holmes would be ashamed of you for just being a bigger idiot than her an underdog of a Genius. The Nickname "Pidge" only makes her a bigger badass; I, mean, she won team Voltron a DEATH BATTLE between her & the other Paladins against the Season 1 Era Mighty Morphin Power Rangers & their Dino Megazord (JP Equivalent? The 5 Zyurangers & DaiZyuJin.) Don't ask me again about all that, I'm sick of that. Anyways, Artifact Draw is great here, as well as Doublers, Copyspells, even Burn w/ lasting impact & either stays on the field; or does a lot. lastly on the subject; Vedalken Orrery & Dark Sphere Stay; NO EXCEPTIONS, OR REFUGE. Vedalken Orrery gives everything but your lands Flash, & Dark Sphere can save you in a pinch.


So, that's what I'd like help for such a situation. I'll leave that matter of these kinds to you now. & I apologize for all those Voltron/GoLion references just from the Deck Type alone. The chain has been severed.

@SufferFromEDHDOh, that's nice, kind of like "everyone using it gets a sword, but i also get a dagger" each time it triggers. Also highliy unlikely someone removes it, makes it more likely i get to use it too. Very positive that it's not too hard on the milling or discardside of effects and i get to filter my hand a bit too. I'll try this instead of Wild Guess .

Your list looks fun too, people should check it out, more love for Tariel <3

Great suggestion, embrace the randomness and thanks a lot!

I recommend Hazoret's Monument since it helps reduce the cost of the more expensive creatures. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is good for extra life loss, and helps get around cards like Glacial Chasm . Impact Tremors as always has great synergy with Goblins. Finally, Last-Ditch Effort is a good end it all card. If you find yourself lacking in draw power, I also suggest Tormenting Voice and Wild Guess .

@AlwaysSleepy: Thanks. Based on such a combo, I guess the only replacing card I'd use to replace Night's Whisper is either Tormenting Voice or even Wild Guess ? All three have a CMC of 2, or am I missing out on something? I'll have to check to comment to be sure...

Hmmm... it seems as if both replacements just require a single discard from the hand, & the rest is in the clear; much like how Night's Whisper works for this combo. Might as well have an extra card to discard for either Rummaging Replacement. So, yeah. Thanks very much, sir; after a lot of such I've been through; I think it's about time I start my Mardu deck project. But what the heck to use as a CMDR of such design? Queen Marchesa is good, but not what I'm looking for. Zurgo Helmsmasher is ridiculous on its own, but still not what to use as Voltron (Not what I want.), Oros, the Avenger ? nope. Tariel, Reckoner of Souls ? Chaos (This really deserves a symbol here for commenting, & other things of the like. Same for the Planeswalker Symbol on the Same Planar Die.) so far is too hard to control, & is potentially better off as something else entirely that's NOT Angel Tribal. Kaalia of the Vast is more akin to Mayael the Anima as they tutor for very powerful creatures w/ crazy effects. Not much closer. Not going to allow anymore Partner duos. Ol' Edgar Markov means a no can do for me; Eminence was never going to last long enough anyway. Licia, Sanguine Tribune just wants to feast on blood at an extremely huge mana cost, but this deck has little to nothing about life gain. One option remains: Mathas, Fiend Seeker . I wonder how he can truly work... Thanks again! ^_^
