What about Mindslaver and Strionic Resonator?

Nephalia Smuggler gives you evasion, and what's more, if you use it on creatures you control but someone else owns, they stay on your side when they flicker back in.

Something like Lantern of Insight, Wizened Snitches, Dakra Mystic, Psychic Surgery, and Glasses of Urza are all great ways to get some intelligence on what is in the opponents' hands. The topdeck surveillance combos especially well with Sen, as you already know from Hinder. See something nice on their topdeck? Take control of them, force them to draw, and then play the card before they ever get access to it.

Also, Isperia the Inscrutable seems like it would fit in well...

Playtested a couple times. Needs more Islands. Disappointed that I couldn't untap the mana rock for any color, needed that when I only had three Mountains and Exotic Orchard and wanted to cast Sift Through Sands.

Second game, drew Goblin Electromancer and that annoying manarock again, one of my untappy spells and two Glacial Ray, but nothing repeatible and no draw power to back it up. Then I drew into Vadrik on Turn 5 - I didn't need any more reduction, I needed DAMAGE!

This looks like a fun deck if you have a long time to set up. Otherwise you're going to run out of gas before you can deal 20 damage.

But it doesn't do any damage lagotripha (not counting on swinging it in), and requires interacting with three cards before I get any payoff from the cost. By contrast, Thermo-Alchemist doesn't need to interact with any cards to do its thing (deal damage), interaction just makes it better. It is also a more effective blocker at 3 Toughness.

Let me ask you this: What should I remove for the Electromancer? I don't want to bring myself below 40% Instants/Sorceries, and I can't remove more of my damage-dealing creatures without seriously hurting my ability to actually win the game. That leaves 0 open spots, unless you can convince me he's a worthwhile swap for a specific card, for a specific reason.

I explained myself fairly well as to why he doesn't fit this deck's strategy - you keep trying to convince me he's good for some other deck or some other strategy that you keep trying to push. Let's see your changes, instead of your recommendations.

Answered the Electromancer question before lagotripha, here's what I considered:

Goblin Electromancer is a possibility. It turns 12 of my spells into one-drops, and eases mana costs so I can splice more. While it reduces two-thirds of my noncreature spells, that only ends up being about 25% of my cards in total. It also gives me a 2/2 body to swing with, but attacking with him isn't reliable damage.

Obviously you hope Bess never dies or a boardwipe comes about, but what about Murder Investigation in case they happen?

Thanks for the feedback lagotripha. I've actually been meaning to cut the Blessed Breaths for Veils of Secrecy and bring this deck back to 2 colors (moved it to the maybeboard a couple months ago). I will likely add some Coral Atoll too. Desperate Ritual will bring up the $ cost of the deck too much to include.

Creatures like Izzet Guildmage are more mana-intensive and targetable than extra Splice cards in my hand. Sea Gate Stormcaller would be way to slow - in my experience most 60-card games are over by Turn 6. Even though my untap shenanigans let me generate 7 mana by that time, I need to cast and resolve the untap spell to have mana for a second Spliced cast. None of these suggested copies are cast either, so none of them will trigger my creatures' triggered abilities.

I know copying is really 'in' right now. A lot of these suggestions would be great in a deck with a slightly different theme, curve, or style.
