    Win strategy of this is to land a Tamiyo's Journal with a Briarbridge Patrol in play and cast Emrakul, the Promised End to end. Wanting to lean heavily on Investigate as a mechanic. Bloodbriar acts as a back up to this, pumping up +1 with clue sacrifice (as well as Evolving Wilds & Blighted Woodland sacrifice) with Graf Mole giving a bit of lifegain in the mid-game.

    Accruing Clues both by weenies like Thraben Inspector, a full set of Erdwal Illuminator to boost Investigations both on and off turn and instants like Expose Evil, etc etc.

    Cards I've been juggling and decided to leave out are Bygone Bishop (liked the investigate for 3drop creatures, hence most creatures are level to this). Also wandering if I should duplicate the enchantments - Ongoing Investigation, Ulvenwald Mysteries...

    Aside from not being able to find a set of Tireless Tracker ( only have one :/ ) I'd love some suggestions, balancing card numbers to make really consistent, to fit this archetype.

    My meta-game is against a friend's more aggro-type play (we're both brewing in standard at the mo, yet to make our first FNM) either a mono-red deck or Eldrazi's with lots of ingest and exile. Having played an earlier version of this, I couldn't answer any of his remove spells, so threw in Dispel, Jace's Scrutiny & Turn Aside.

    Another thought of mine is to make something really mill heavy - I have play sets of Fleeting Memories and Second Harvest to boost clues, and am thinking would work well with Startled Awake.

    I've got most other SOI Investigate cards in 3/4 sets.....please give me some tips!!
