Can you run the following more streamlined combo from Sisay Primer (Stax-Combo) (100% Competitive!)?

Cast Captain Sisay, pass the turn, or give it haste with Lightning Greaves or something.

Fetch Paradox Engine, cast it that same turn hopefully. Then pass the turn, or untap Captain Sisay by casting a spell.

Untapped Captain Sisay + Paradox Engine = Win:

Tap Sisay, Fetch Mox Amber, cast it, untapping Sisay.

Tap both, Floating , and finding Mox Opal, cast it, untapping the other mox and Sisay.

Tap both Mox, floating , and fetch Seton, Krosan Protector, then cast it.

Tap out for , fetch Dosan the Falling Leaf, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bow of Nylea, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bontu's Monument, cast it, floating nothing and untap.

Tap out for , fetch Mikaeus, the Lunarch, and cast it.

You now can drop Mikaeus, the Lunarch with no counters so it dies, Bow of Nylea it back into the deck, and fetch it out again, infinite times. Bontu's Monument will drain for win.

You need to increase the reliability of your deck, instead of jamming it with more big creatures. I imagine you'd lose a few games to not drawing enough ramp, or having dead utility cards.

My suggestions are to

1) CUT THE FOLLOWING

Mouth, Lightning Greaves, Bow of Nylea, Soul of the Harvest, Druid of the Cowl

2) RUN THE FOLLOWING

Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, Wall of Roots, Rhonas the Indomitable

May I ask why you don't use the more streamlined combo?

Now to explain the actual combo, it is a quite simple combo, that takes one turn/tutor/cast after you fetch Paradox Engine from Captain Sisay and takes at the slowest 3 turns on a normal curve to win after turn 4. (you win by turn 6 then).

Cool, now here is the combo.

Cast Captain Sisay, pass the turn, or give it haste with Lightning Greaves or something.

Fetch Paradox Engine, cast it that same turn hopefully. Then pass the turn, or untap Captain Sisay by casting a spell.

Untapped Captain Sisay + Paradox Engine = Win:

Tap Sisay, Fetch Mox Amber, cast it, untapping Sisay.

Tap both, Floating , and finding Mox Opal, cast it, untapping the other mox and Sisay.

Tap both Mox, floating , and fetch Seton, Krosan Protector, then cast it.

Tap out for , fetch Dosan the Falling Leaf, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bow of Nylea, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bontu's Monument, cast it, floating nothing and untap.

Tap out for , fetch Mikaeus, the Lunarch, and cast it.

You now can drop Mikaeus, the Lunarch with no counters so it dies, Bow of Nylea it back into the deck, and fetch it out again, infinite times. Bontu's Monument will drain for win.

This takes up a lot less space than fetching Blasting Station from Inventors' Fair, and using Azusa, Lost but Seeking to get the land drops, and you don't need the mana to cast Dragonlord Dromoka with Dosan the Falling Leaf. It also doesn't rely on Reki, History of Kamigawa, so no need for infinite casts of Green Sun's Zenith. You don't need to rely on targetting with Bontu's Monument (as opposed to Blasting Station).

In total, the combo I suggest you use is a 9 card combo, but I will call it an 8 card combo as one is the commander. 8 cards is still a lot of dead draws, but normally Mox Amber, Mox Opal (if you have metalcraft), Dosan the Falling Leaf, and a few other cards in the combo aren't entirely dead.

Your current combo runs 14 dead cards, not including Captain Sisay for obvious reasons. (I didn't include Green Sun's Zenith either as it would be run regardless of the combo.) And the same thing is true about how you don't mind drawing a Mox Amber or whatever, but being able to drop 6 semi-dead cards makes the deck much more refined.

I hadn't. I'll playtest it though. But I think Bow of Nylea will ultimately win a slot due to the lower mana cost and chance at killing blockers. Thanks for the suggestion!

For the cost of Bow of Nylea, you could afford 2 more rancors, which i’d recommemd as they work so well with magemark

Borderland Marauder feels stronger and better themed than berserker, who doesn’t seem that great.

Coordinated Assault is just straight up better than rally the forces, sp just run 4 of those assaults instead of slipping a rally in there

You probs only need 22 lands. I’d drop the cultivate and 2 lands and try to fit in 4 Cartouche of Zeal - they combo great with this deck!

I originally ran Bellowing Tanglewurm when I made the deck, I took it out a couple years ago as the power level grew. I currently have no problem trampling over the other decks in my meta, but I'm actually working towards putting Bow of Nylea to help in any tight situations. Predatory Focus us a very interesting card and I may have to playtest it as a finisher. Flying is only occasionally a problem, I'll try to take out those types of decks first, but with the addition of Vivien Reid I think I'll be ok. Thanks for the suggestions!!
