- More Isochron Scepter would get great in a deck like this.
- I would say that Peek is better than Telepathy, purely because it draws a card
- 1 or 2 Sensei's Divining Top would probably be better than Sage Aven.
- Making the deck more consistent in the lower drops (A full set of your mana leaks, and other such lower cards) could replace the full sets of higher casting cost cards (such as Spell Burst). This is because you only need 1 of cards like Spell Burst in the late game to completely shutdown your opponent.
