It’s a grindy Dimir Control Deck with Sygg almost never getting to use his ability, but rather serve as an early blocker more than anything else. You can infinite combo your opponent with Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank for the win. Another combo is Pili-Pala and Grand Architect for infinite mana into a gigantic Blue Sun’s Zenith targetting your opponent (there’s ‘only’ 50 cards in these decks after all, eh?).

You can of course just slowly mill them out the hard way with cards like Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver and Nephalia Drownyard. A lot of the Brainstorm effects are to help you dig for one of your combos and you can even Transmute for one of the pieces with Dimir Infiltrator.
