Notes/Comments: Much like Aminatou, this is basically the pre-con with (quite a) few changes made to it; I kind of changed my mind mid-build though and so there are still elements of the "spells matter" deck I was building in here - there are some cards in there which should probably end up in my Yidris Storm deck (the deck that will be spells matters) and a couple - notably Master Polymorphist - that should go into Aminatou. I'm not sure yet how this deck wins; the general idea is to get a critical mass of Wizards and win using Adeliz and/or Divining Wand, with help from the tapping/bouncing Wizards to get through. No idea if that will work or not (haven't taken this deck out in anger yet).

The Good: Straying away from Wanderwine Prophets combo can make this Inalla brew unique, in that it's looking to build for a more fair gameplan

The Bad: Much like Ephara- Inalla doesn't actually want an overload of creatures- but to reward you for playing high impact creatures, for this reason I'd suggest reducing your creature count to 20 or so, and giving the deck more tools to condense itself (Painful Truths, Dig Through Time, Desperate Ravings, Shattered Perception, Forbidden Alchemy etc.)

The Ugly: The Legendary Wizards don't behave favorably with Inalla's delayed trigger. From my PoV, the best way to approach this deck would simply to be moving away from the goodstuff and towards a plan of your choosing. Bounce/Burn is not only viable- but well supported by a large cast of Wizards who like to be copied- and would be my first choice. A more recursive strategy could be applied- and it wouldn't have to be a Tar n' Feather degree of it either- just enough to push the game forward on the back of some tight piloting.
