OK, I have the initial Decklist. This is what I’m going with:

Delicate Instruments

Adamaro, First to Desire
Aeon Chronicler
Darksteel Myr
Darksteel Sentinel
Manor Gargoyle
Psychosis Crawler

Keeping the Hand Full

Ancestral Vision
Blue Sun’s Zenith
Careful Consideration
Compulsive Research
Deep Analysis
Font of Mythos
Howling Mine
Jace Beleren
Kami of the Crescent Moon
Minds Aglow
Mystic Remora
Temple Bell

Keeping the Hand… cycling

Frantic Search
Forced Fruition
Jace’s Archivist
Magus of the Jar
Memory Jar
Molten Psyche (see also “One is Good…”)
Teferi’s Puzzle Box
Tolarian Winds

Hand Size? What Hand Size?

Library of Leng
Venser’s Journal

Graveyard Control

Relic of Progenitus
Scrabbling Claws
Tormod’s Crypt

Spell Control

Cryptic Command
Dream Fracture
Faerie Trickery
Overwhelming Intellect (also keeps the hand full)

One is Good…

Cerebral Vortex
Parallectric Feedback
Soul’s Fire
Spiraling Embers
Sudden Impact

Two is Better

Echo Mage
Mischievous Quanar

Other Stuff

Darksteel Ingot
Inner Fire
Izzet Signet
Lightning Greaves
Mana Geyser
Meishin, the Mind Cage
Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind
Rite of Replication
Sensei’s Divining Top
Sokenzan Spellblade
Sol Ring
Spin Into Myth
Trinket Mage
Word of Seizing


Reliquary Tower (Hand Size)
Riptide Laboratory
Steam Vents
Evolving Wilds
Terramorphic Expanse
Buried Ruin
Temple of the False Godย (does anyone else think it’s weird that you can’t really cast Karona, False God off this without having mana left over? ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
Izzet Boilerworks
Tectonic Edge
9 Mountains
16 Islands

The amazingly astute among you will note that this is 67 non-land cards, which is probably two too many. Currently I’m probably going to cut Concentrate and Deep Analysis. Having said that I want to add Thousand-Year Elixir and Soramaro, First to Dream when I trade for them, so will have to take another two cards out. However, I’ll burn that particular bridge when I get to it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Yeah the land count is a bit worrying but you do have a lot of draw to smooth it out. i would first play it a bit before adding more lands

    Yeah I’ll do that. I tend to be a bit inflexible when it comes to numbers of lands – this is my 13th EDH deck and out of all of those 11 have 35 lands, and one has 34. There’s nothing I hate worse than being land-screwed :-\
