Splashing blue for Frost Titan, Deciever Exarch, and Sea Gate Oracle doesn't seem that good to me.

Grave Titan is probably better than Frost Titan 9 times out of 10 anyways.

Deciever Exarch without Splinter Twin zzz...

Sea Gate Oracle is a mediocre card not worth splashing for 1 of.

Metamorph can be good so maybe keep that in, but even if you do you still don't really need to use islands for it. Birthing pod or just pay the 2 life should suffice.

i don't get what you could gain from having preordain in the deck
i mean, who cares about the 2 top cards of his library when the whole deck is built so that you can get any card out of it when you need it

the only thing it might help is if you're manascrewed at the beginning, but with 4 birds to start, and creatures that give you the ability to find more lands, i don't think you need that

also you need to have that island so it's not worth it

maybe 1 island for deceiver (2 to 4 in 1 turn seems nice in some occasions) and sometimes for metamorph

the preordains are there to help the problem of not drawing your birthing pod in the main hand, a lot of the times without birthing pod on line you will havea much harder time of winning, hence preordain. also the exarch is in there to go to 4 from 2 alot faster, Emissary>Exarch, untap pod>4 drop, my personal favorite is getting entomber exarch and bringing back deciever to do it again next turn.
