The purpose of this deck, as is abundantly clear by its name, is to run your library out of cards with at least one Lab Maniac on the field. With a combination of defensive creatures, mana ramp with six of those creatures (Axebane Guardian and Overgrown Battlement), and a potential infinite turn combo consisting of Time Warp and an Isochron Scepter with Noxious Revival imprinted, not to mention the several extra-draw cards and the Omniscience for making sure everything runs smoothly, the deck is more effective than it may first seem. Game 2 has a few options for you. If you expect sideboard hatred for your self-milling strategy, you can switch out all four Maniacs for the four Eldrazi, or some combination of Eldrazi and Test Subjects/Abominations. The mana ramp and the Omniscience copies should be more than enough to land them on the field so they can wreck everything. Asceticism protects your creatures from removal if that's a big problem, Tormod's Crypt hurts Dredge/Delve decks, and Torpor Orb stops some heavier creature-based decks in their tracks. Cyclonic Rift's main purpose is wiping out any token armies, but is useful for anything and can be used under the Scepter.

Please post constructive criticism and suggestions for how to make the deck and sideboard work better. This deck hasn't seen much competitive play yet but has played strong in my meta (which the sideboard is built to fight).

Just play Leveler, bro. Don't make it more difficult than it has to be.
