Interesting abilities on their own, but some concerns about the deck it's going on vs. the environment:

  • Hexproof. What sorts of ways will Phyrexian blue have to get around this? Is Phyrexian blue more aggressive than Neurok blue making this under-the-curve creature a mostly poor play, or does it has a couple of removal pieces that either do some sort of edict-bounce or remove hexproof?

  • Both of your blue legends read "Draw cards for doing thematic stuff." if I were you - and I'm not, so feel free to ignore this opinion - I'd probably look towards more ways you can separate and define Phyrexian vs. Mirrodin blue. Maybe Kara Vrist's artifact-untap ability makes you Dakra Mystic? Or maybe it gives something unblockable or shroud?

  • From what I understand, the "Look at target player's hand" is going to be mostly irrelevant past the first use, and you're really only going to use this to get your artifacts tapped. Since it's something that encourages repeatable use, maybe have something that encourages tapping multiple artifacts? Some effects that instantly comes to mind as Neurok-relevant are:

  • Scry 1. (Generic, but hey. It's a duel deck.)
  • Tap X untapped artifacts you control: Look at the top X cards of your/your opponent's library. (Do not rearrange them)
  • {minor cost maybe}, tap an untapped artifact you control: ~ gains shroud/hexproof until end of turn.

These are just my humble suggestions. I like the theme of the duel decks so far!
