Arcanis the Omnipotent Discussion

Firebones675 No problem, still gave me some pretty good ideas because Paradox Engine can still allow me to cast a spell with Kaho and still have her untapped for a Counterspell. Arcanis the Omnipotent can also infinite draw in this situation too.

Tried posting too many cards so it wouldnt let me suggest all of them. here were the others
Also one more combo i forgot to mention:
Also for what it's worth i'm not a fan of Umbilicus or Blood Clock. Feel like all they do is slowly drain everyone whereas what a blue control deck wants to do is to have the game go long, then either combo out or play a large threat that people can't answer. You don't have as much aggression so your life total s going to be lower than your opponents meaning you'll die first. And i've foind when you play cards like Umbilicus or Blood Clock people get annoyed at you and it makes them want to attack you more often.

I think you have way too many ways to shuffle your graveyard into your library. I'd run 1-2 at most. Memory Erosion also seems suspect as you will likely be winning via combo or damage rather than mill. I'd keep Sphinx's Tutelage in only if you plan on drawing your deck to mill everyone (i explain how to to this in a sec)
Also you should probably get your hands on a Paradox Engine. Its a good card in general but can also go infinite.
Paradox Engine+Kaho, Minamo Historian+mana rock= infinite draws. Eventually you can draw into and play a second mana rock and then every time you do the loop you gain 1 mana. Keep doing this until you draw your entire deck. At that you can switch over to a different spell with cmc less than the amount of mana you are producing(might mean targeting a token from Pongify with another copy of pongify) each untap to generate infinite mana. With the ability to draw infinite cards and infinite mana, you can cast a Blue Sun's Zenith on each opponent where x=1000 to kill everyone else at the table.
Casting infinite copies of Reality Shift exiles their libraries too.
Also copying a Dramatic Reversal with enough mana rocks out can also generate infinite mana.
Once you have infinite mana if you have something you can tap to draw cards like Arcanis the Omnipotent you can do this to draw your deck, use brainstorm to put a Reality Shift in the deck, play Deadeye Navigator to reset kaho getting your copy of shift you can win that way.
As you can see there are several ways to to draw your deck so even somethink like Laboratory Maniac is viable.
Sorry if that was a bit long bit here are the cards i think you need: counterspells, Paradox Engine, a few more mana rocks

Arcanis the Omnipotent and Mind Over Matter are crazy powerful together allowing you to quickly pull out what you want and play it. You should include Laboratory Maniac or some way to recycle your graveyard if you do include them. Guile is another fun thing to have in blue, nearly unblockable beats and free cards from stuff that gets countered.

Hey! I made a deck very similar to this, draw cards and mill with Sphinx's Tutelage. I really like Startled Awake Flip and Arcanis the Omnipotent. I may try to add them to mine. Check out my deck and let me know what you think. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/jace-draw-mill-deck-1/

you need 30 more cards to make it edh, have to be 100 count.
not a terrible start, but you need more instants to counter with and some mono blue staples like High Tide, futuresight, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Roil Elemental, Temporal Adept, Empress Galina, Isochron Scepter and such like that.
plus if you want to use so many big creatures, you might want like Caged Sun to get more mana, having so many big beater creatures is a little redundant though.... either Lorthos, the Tidemaker, or Artisan of Kozilek should win you the game by themselves.
you also probably want a Baral, Chief of Compliance to round out your creatures. maybe even as your Commander.
somewhere between 34-37 lands will get you done in a 100 card deck. have fun and keep slinging.
