To prevent opponents from ever paying for your Sphere of Safety, you can try to also get a Fall of the Thran and a Agent of Erebos or something like that.

You might also want to try the classic lock that uses Form of the Dragon and Zur's Weirding: you just use Weirding to prevent them from drawing any enchantment destruction or flying creatures, and the Form makes sure you'll never run out of life and kill the opponent.

The most competitive use of Form of the Dragon is in Enduring Ideal-style decks, where it's used to finish the opponent after locking them out.

EternalFreeze - Thank you for commenting! Yes, Cephalid Coliseum has some very nice synergy with Narset, Parter of Veils and Notion Thief. I've also been seriously considering cards like Jace's Archivist or Windfall because of those two cards (plus these wheel effects discard your hand, which you can then replay with Muldrotha).

As for Lunar Force, I have a couple issues with it. The biggest problem is that it will never counter something you want it to. Because of this, I think it's better to analyze the card not as removal/interaction but as a stax piece. Ideally your opponents will either not play a spell or one person will waste a card out of their hand to remove Lunar Force. Now, as a stax piece, are their better alternatives? There certainly are in my opinion. Lunar Force just seems to make too little an impact at too great a mana cost.

If you're looking for a good stax piece though, I would recommend Zur's Weirding. I haven't included it in my decklist since my opponents can stop me from drawing important X-spells (which can't be replayed with Muldrotha), making the card a little awkward. But with a different deck focus, that card is very good.

I love Atrasta and think she should be in here. Especially if you have a blue heavy meta. I cant say anything bad about Heroic Intervention and I run it in my juices up Slimefoot deck but I dont think you want it. I don't think there are a ton of destroy all enchantments in the meta but they may eventually add them to combat you. I would wait to add it till then.

A few cards I found are Sapseep Forest to gain life to beat your opponents in a hurricane battle. You need 1 more life than everyone so why not a fetchable land that you can use at end step if you have the extra mana.

Fruition was another end game 1 mana play this and then hurricane effect.

Revelation is a weird one and impacts you too but I've seen Zur's Weirding wreck a game.

Myth Unbound didn't seem amazing but it caught my eye. I don't think it's good enough but I thought I'd mention it since you don't care much about Nissa.

Last one was Gravity Well but it's super meta dependent and I could see it doing work or being completely dead based on what your playing against.

So I was watching The Commander's Quarters and saw Zur's Weirding there. It adds an interesting control element to the game and has almost no effect on how this deck plays. I might have to experiment with it. Using it might put too much pressure on my life total though since I already don't do much to defend myself...

RNR_Gaming I thought about Necropotence and Future Sight.

Necropotence could easily be added to the deck. (esp because Second Chance is a fun possibility too!)

Future Sight will most likely not make it in, I worry about the CMC of the card and outside of breaking parity with Zur's Weirding its mostly a dead card. Even with the incredible advantage of playing the top card, we break parity by having Muldrotha, the Gravetide in play.

Thank you for the advice!

Going to highly suggest Necropotence and Future Sight to break the symmetry of Zur's Weirding; playing this card fairly is a grueling experience and I highly advise against playing it fairly.

Looks good. You might like these: Bident of Thassa , Coastal Piracy , Sunken Hope , Dire Undercurrents , Sleeper's Robe , Zur's Weirding (make everyone else lose their draws, meanwhile you get cards via your general's ability).

Also Ancient Stone Idol (or any big cmc creature, Idol just seems the best) + Haunted Crossroads + Skirge Familiar would be fun. Respond to Yuriko triggers by discarding the Idol with Skirge, then put Idol on top with Crossroads. You can hold priority between resolutions of the seperate triggers to repeat this, so if 4 or more ninjas connect you win. Hard to pull off, but at least the combo pieces are decent even outside the combo.
