Captivating Glance

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

At the end of your turn, clash with an opponent. If you win, gain control of enchanted creature. Otherwise, that player gains control of enchanted creature. (Each clashing player reveals the top card of his or her library, then puts that card on the top or bottom. A player wins if his or her card had a higher converted mana cost.)

Counterbalance is the core card in this deck style. Its worth taking even more budget options throughout the rest of the deck just to play a set. Aqueous Form is too easy to get 2-for-1'd compared to a playset of something like Anticipate or Telling Time.

I much prefer Sage of Epityr to Omenspeaker- dropping things lower in the library to later be shuffled away is fine when it just costs 1.

There are also some interesting tech options, depending on what direction you take the build.Captivating Glance Cloudform Hinder Mitotic Manipulation etc.

Take a look at Lantern of Insight control for a good set of tools. Psychic Surgery/Cosi's Trickster/Vortex Elemental can be a spicy and powerful budget combination. There are also some fun Skill Borrower brews to check out too.

Of course, it says "each end step".

It's always specified when it means something different (eg. Captivating Glance or Cruel Reality)

I'm also the kind of guy that wants to prove a point with bad cards. My favorite way to do this is Captivating Glance and Tel-Jilad Stylus, though I am attempting to find a more consistent and efficient way to do the same effect.

I'm not really experienced in EDH, but if you're milling, I'd suggest Laboratory Maniac as a back-up, Lord of Extinction, and possibly Phenax, God of Deception. More interaction with the graveyard would be interesting, considering there would be lots of cards in it. Don't know if you're avoiding mill spells or not, but Breaking and Glimpse the Unthinkable are always fun.

Tunnel Vision is also something to consider. You could back it up with clash spells, such as Broken Ambitions or Captivating Glance. A dual card combo, but if you clash, they send it to the bottom, and you have a tunnel vision, that would be pretty epic. Additionally, if you had a laboratory maniac, you could pull that off on yourself and win. Grazing Kelpie could help in that case.

Also, I'd suggest Abundance with your commander. Drawing that many cards, and being able to decide which ones will be land or not, would be really strong.
