no ban list?! (tosses that Chaos Orb out on the table) Though having every possible mox and mana rock instead of 38 lands would be the strong option as you could also run Tinker for that combo, in fact pretty much just look at the banlists and put cards that look good for this deck in there, then play until the playgroup starts using the banlist even cedh players want at least a good portion of a nights games to last longer than it took to shuffle up the decks and pick hands.
Though even with the vault, this maybe a tamer version of derevi I've looked at, this linked list seems to be the tier list's chosen representative b i r d w i z a r d [2.0] (cEDH Derevi Primer).

I'm not exactly sure what you mean.
There are 33 cards banned in Modern. That's a measly .29% of available cards in Modern. There are some absurdly powerful cards on this list, but its far from all the "halfway decent" cards. Jace, the Mind Sculptor was recently unbanned. Path to Exile and Thoughtseize are wonderful cards. Snapcaster Mage, Delver of Secrets Flip, Aether Vial. Countless infinite combos or other turn four victories.
Standard only has seven banned cards, and these were banned because they were way too powerful, and thus run in every deck (Smuggler's Copter, or they enable a single archetype which became overly common in the meta, stifling competition and creative deckbuilding.
Legacy's banlist consists of cards that would essentially allow whoever went first to always win the game. It also limits cards that might constitute a violation of real world laws (i.e. cards with ante), and dexterity challenges (Chaos Orb). Shahrazad is banned because it would interfere with the timing of tournaments by needlessly stretching out games.
Vintage allows mostly anything, bar Shahrazad, ante, and dexterity cards. The restricted cards are chosen to limit players' ability to win a game before their opponent can make a move.
Ultimately, the ban and restricted lists are not very intrusive, and there's still plenty of room for unique, interesting deckbuilding. It's simply an incorrect statement that "all of the halfway decent cards are banned".

Chaos Orb and other dexterity cards are illegal in Commander.
