Have you though about using an alternative at 10 mins. Might add some depth of hop flavour. Just a thought.

Given the original recipe hop schedule - I added the IBUs from brewersfriend.com:
.75 saaz 5.8% @ 60min 14.91 IBUS
1.5 saaz 5.8% @ 30min 19.10 IBUS
1.0 saaz 5.8% @ 10min 7.21 IBUS
1.0 saaz 5.8% @ 0min 5.8 IBUS
Total IBUS - 41.22

My CZECH SAAZ are 3.1 AA - What do you think about this for adjustments:

1.5 saaz 3.1% @ 60min 15.94 IBUS
2.25 saaz 3.1% @ 30min 18.38 IBUS
1.75 saaz 3.1% @ 10min 6.74 IBUS
1.0 saaz 3.1% @ 0min 3.1 IBUS
Total IBUS - 41.06

6.5 oz seems like alot of hops for a pilsner! And actually - I only have 6 ozs so I'll have to lose 1/2 oz somewhere

I really want to make up this Pilsner but I don't want to deal with doing a double decoction mash. I have done it before and it took too long and everything I read says melanoiden malt is a suitable replacement.

Is it possible for me to simplify this recipe and do a single decoction type of deal where I put in my infusion water to get the grain up to 148F for 30 minutes and then take out grist and boil it to get me up to 158F for 30 minutes more? After this I would just drain the MLT and then sparge with regular water at 168F.

It seems like thre has to be a good compromise between the double decoction and using melanoiden malts but I am no expert on this subject so I figured I would ask.

EDIT: Changed 142F to 148F
