Copy Artifact Discussion

Sgtpopnfreash First of all, thanks a lot for your comments!
I don't actually have Timetwister, Candelabra of Tawnos, Flusterstorm, Copy Artifact, Volcanic Island, Underground Sea and The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, but if I had them, I would certainly use them in this deck.
I'll tell you why I like having Faithless Looting in my deck. 1) it enables me to trade three(including itself) cards from my hand for two new other cards, while discarding lands or cards that i'll be able to cast later with Kess, dissident mage , such as Mind's Desire, 2) It interacts well in some Doomsday piles that I like to settle sometimes, 3) It helps me to trigger Threshold for Cabal Ritual. Cephalid Coliseum have a similar effect enabling me to trade three cards from my hand for three new cards, while it enters untapped and taps for blue mana.
Mizzix's Mastery and Paradox Engine are too powerful for not to use them. With Paradox Engine on the field I can easely storm out and with a tutor or enough draws I can quickly close the game. It also helps me to avoid some stax effects, which my playgroup is consistently improving. I'm also considering adding Vandalblast or By Force to deal with tax and stax artifacts.
Please let me know your thoughts on my comment.

Hey this is quite similar to my DD storm Kess list some suggestions I have. Misdirection is pretty high CMC for Ad Nauseam you could probably cut that. Some ad naus decks dont even run Force of Will but I think that is stupid. Faithless Looting isnt as good as some other draw spells, Night's Whisper or Chart A Course would both probably be better choices for your Doomsday piles. Phyrexian Metamorph is also very high mana costed for an Ad Nauseam deck, maybe think about Copy Artifact. Now Paradox Engine is interesting but I really haven't found it to be necessary for Kess decks specifically, between Yawgmoth's Will, the black rituals, High Tide and Kess herself you dont need Paradox Engine for more mana. Its just excessive. Other than that the deck looks pretty good I would add a few more Islands and probably cut Cavern of Souls and Cephalid Coliseum at least maybe some of the orchards too. Mizzix's Mastery, Thought Vessel and Fabricate all seem like iffy choices but they are fine if you don't have other cards.
Here is my kess deck if you would like to check it out. Kess Doomsday Storm

Copy Artifact and Winds of Rebuke offer a win condition alongside an Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal. I get that will generally already be making infinite mana which gets you where you need to be, but the additions seem pretty free to me. Winds of Rebuke gives you interaction (albeit mediocre interaction) while Copy Artifact can copy one of your mana rocks if you don't have Scepter. Merchant Scroll tutors up either Winds of Rebuke or Dramatic Reversal to pair with your Scepter or even Pact of Negation as a free protection spell on your combo turn. Dark Petition is another great tutor that could see play here. You're playing enough spells that turning on Spell Mastery should be inconsequential.
I haven't played your deck, obviously, but does Paradox Engine feel clunky to you? The CMC seems rather high for what you're trying to achieve.

i would start by cutting both jace, forced fruition, spiteful visions, howling mine, dictate of kruphix all other draw step/upkeep stacking or self-damaging cards
curiosity is a good card on nekusar, but without him its a dead card, so its not really worth it imo cuz nekusar doesnt play like niv mizzet or locust god, in that he is much more discard than those two, plus, if you want to be mean, Glistening Oil does the job of both curiosity and Gratuitous Violence for 2 mana
temple bell goes infinite with Mind over matter but without MoM bell is just another howling mine feed, and with mom you can easily combo off similar to dream halls by untapping lands or mana rocks then casting a wheel and untapping more with unwanted cards
Kami, niv mizzet, and jace's archivist are too slow, since they dont have haste theyre often killed before you can tap them
nekusar is best in that he can kill a whole table with a Windfall so single target or cards like Blue Sun's Zenith or Terminate arent that great in edh when you could be casting a Memory or Evacuation
also, memory jar is amazing here because you can copy it with stuff like Mizzium Transreliquat, Mirage Mirror Copy Artifact and Sculpting Steel plus metamorph and impersonator to draw 7, discard them all to dream halls or mind over matter, then activate the second "jar" to exile the 7 cards in the original hand, which you also discard to avoid exile, this combined with stuff like Bojuka Bog rakdos charm or Leyline of the Void makes your opponent benefit far less from Memory/Time Spiral type cards while you keep getting your cards back while slowly decking them
hope that helps!

Been playing and brewing a lot, this is the latest version of what I now believe to be a very strong version of the deck:
All in on the Dramatic Reversal plan, but with a lot of back up pieces to ensure to combo fires. Absolutely excellent at throwing spanners into the works of other decks then going off behind a wall of counter magic.
Austere Command is my spicy inclusion against the rise of BloodPod and similar strategies as a modal wrath. Copy Artifact with Swan Song functions as a tertiary outlet for the combo (infinite birds) whilst both pieces being useful outside the combo. Same goes for Blind Obedience being a hate piece that doubles as an outlet through extort.
Helm and rip are out. Drawing helm feels terrible. This deck is tuned to cut down on bad draws as much as possible. Win cons should double up as value pieces. Tangle Wire back in, honestly don't know why I ever took it out. The card is a house and you need to be playing it. No one seems to like it at the moment but it's hella strong and folks need to be getting on that wagon.
The list I built above (not the one I've linked now) is hot garbage. The real deal is the one I'm linking to now. Helm Rip is bad, honestly guys try this one I'm pumped.

Hey, very nice, +1. I agree with all the Notable Excludes, good info.
The maybeboard of eight cards is more money than the entire deck, haha. Prices on original duals are so ridiculous.
I would replace Copy Artifact with Intruder Alarm. Copying a Sol or Lotus can be good, but Alarm can win the game or extremely disrupt you're opponents. It has more synergy with Wizards and is very good with Inalla, Azami and Colossus.
With the way you're built the deck I think the direction you should consider expanding on is flash with Wizards. Teferi already gives this ability, but you could add more cards such as Leyline of Anticipation and Winding Canyons.
Good luck with your deck.

Also you're missing loads of ramp, now i can see this deck is more budget restricted than mine, so ill exclude the moxen/Lion's Eye Diamond and mana crypt
Here are some budget friendly ways to ramp or filter mana that i still run in budgetless and i would strongly recommend

Lilbrudder Thank you for the response and explanations. I have not encountered much in terms of the creature based cEDH decks so those changes make far more sense to me now. I'll try out the new changes and see if I end up agreeing with them after some testing. Also, I forgot to mention, I tried out Copy Artifact because I had one lying around. In the 15 or so times I have seen it, it has been absurdly good. It usually just copies a mana rock, but it does absurd things if you use it to copy an Aetherflux Reservoir if you are trying to storm off the "fair" way by just casting a bunch of spells. And a few days ago, I used it to copy an opponents Chromatic Lantern while there was a Blood Moon in play which actually allowed me to play that game. If you haven't already tried it, I would give it a shot.
