Eater of Days
Artifact Creature — Leviathan
When Eater of Days enters the battlefield, you skip your next two turns.
Eater of Days Discussion

Old Fogey is fun if your play group allows it, love the flavor. I'm testing Summer Bloom , Krosan Wayfarer and Eater of Days (i know these cards are sorta bad buti like them hehe, but I am playing in a meta that doesn't allow inf combos, so no sabertooth, staff or umbral.
Was wondering if you had any recommendations for deck changes if you can't play those three cards (sabertooth, umbral, staff) so you have to rely on fully storming out without inf mana? In my testing I am still able to pull off turn 3-5 wins consistently, but there could be improvements i am missing.

I want to add Salt Road Ambushers as well but am not sure what to cut right now.

As far as budget alternatives, here are my suggestions:
Damnation and Toxic Deluge : these are hard to replace because we don't have too many options that do what they do for the same mana cost. You could consider something like AEtherize or Whelming Wave .
Force of Will , on the other hand, is very hard to replace. Whatever you choose to include instead of it won't be the same. You want Will because you can tap out and still have a response, therefore something like Arcane Denial would be suboptimal. At the same time, another "free" counterspell like Foil won't be ideal because it rips two cards from your hand instead of one. The only decent option, I think, would be Pact of Negation , even though it's more useful as a protection for game-winning combos instead of player-OTKs.
Intuition is another card that is incredibly hard to replace, as it's one of the 2/3 best cards in the deck. You could go with a Corpse Connoisseur , but I recommend you to get a copy as soon as possible if you enjoy the deck as it is one of the best upgrades you can make.
Phyrexian Dreadnought , unfortunately, cannot be replaced. It's the key card of the deck. No other creature is that powerful for such a low CMC. Nyxathid and Eater of Days are a few options, but they pale in comparison with the Dreadnought.
As for your suggestions, I kind of like Archmage's Charm for the utility of its second mode. The only problem I have with it is its mana cost which can sometimes be awkward, making the spell not always consistent. I don't really like Dimir Charm . It's first mode is rarely useful as oftentimes we want to counter removal spells directed to Lazav during our turn, and those are almost always instants. The second and third modes are okayish, but other spells do the same things better. I do get that this is a versatile spell, giving you the option to do three different things, but I believe that dedicated spells will serve you better. If the first mode gave you the option to counter an instant spell I would consider it, but as is it's not ideal. Also, I'm not a huge fan of Force of Negation in this deck. The moment you want to be able to counter spells is often during your turn, when you are trying to kill a player and that player is trying to disrupt you. In that case, Force will be useless as it won't be free. On the other hand, it's also true that if you manage to kill an opponent, chances are you are forced to tap out. This leaves you vulnerable to disruption during the other players turns, and in this case Force will come in handy. I don't know. I'm not fully convinced, but I could change my mind.
I will be checking your own deck and give you some feedback!

@austintayshus: Thanks for the ideas! Just to note, this is a deck using cards that Exile Themselves; only to be recurred from that Zone. Though my big problem now is; how to use ETB Triggers w/ Torpor Orb & even Hushwing Gryff in play, despite not wanting to do so w/ Inverter of Truth , Eater of Days , or even Leveler triggering their own? Quite a Calamity in this case... I'll ponder about this, since I just started just last night w/ an Upgraded Account...

Yep, an "Exile Matters" Deck; though I think I went too far in this case. Stuff like Food Chain are in for stuff like Squee, the Immortal , Misthollow Griffin , & Eternal Scourge to fuel the mana, but I can't find enough stuff that exiles themselves to be reused. Basically, if the card says "Exile (Card Name with this Ability)" on the text, tell me why it needs to be there. Recently, Someone actually decided to use Manifest/Morph/Megamorph effects here for the sake of Inverter of Truth . I also have stuff like Eater of Days , & Leveler ; basically, stuff requiring ETB activations as drawbacks. Even worse, Riftsweeper is an ETB creature requiring this kind of ability; so stuff w/ "Creatures entering the battlefield don’t cause abilities to trigger." like Torpor Orb , Hushwing Gryff , & even Tocatli Honor Guard can't be used. Which is ironic as one theme of my Kykar, Wind's Fury Vorthos Deck is just doing anti-meta; so she can even say "NO" to ETB Triggers. I hope you can understand this BTW.
I need help finging more Cards that Self-Exiles itself to be used again.
Awesome amounts of power, but it also negates everything else when using Anti ETB stuff like Torpor Orb & Hushwing Gryff . Any possible way I can still do ETB effects besides the ones that ends games for me VERY FAST, & prevent any opponent do the same?
Thanks for the help if you wish; I'm quite in a bind right now...

BUMPILIUMCIOUS BARS FOR ALL!!!
Chose Omnath as my CMDR in an Anti-Meta Mono Color Deck. Even the description states 4 individuals (Me, & 3 of my Fan-Made Post-Mending Era Walkers.). Also, since you stated that nothing is known about what happened at a time of Chaos before Pre-Guildpact Beta Era Ravnica. Really makes me wish all 10 Guilds can coexist with another; but because of color difference, this is never possible even Post-WAR. So, yeah, I have a name for my cEDH Boros Community Deck after all this: "Razia's Parhelion II △ Legion of the Damned." Oh, & as I said earlier, Suns_Champion is also allowed to join despite not knowing cEDH that well; but is a very great Guru on this subject matter. So close enough.
I still haven't found one resourceful enough about the feedback part of the Competitive Gauge. Any ideas? Also, how does Inverter of Truth work w/ Manifesting, Morphing, & Megamorphing, when the first former exiles a whole library face down? That is out of reach for Manifests! Is it truly worth adding after all this?
Finally, one last plan: Outside my Kykar, Wind's Fury Vorthos Deck, I've one other thing to do: A literal Mono- Burn/Red Deck Wins deck where scorching is the name of the game; & when stuff like The Wanderer (SPOILER: Sarkhan Vol knows her back at one time.) w/ her ability to prevent noncreature damage to them, Stuff giving you (As an opponent), & even enemy permanents Hexproof; potentially retiring Shroud as a Keyword forever. I just need ideas to bypass Target Protection, & even ways to bypass ol' Wanderer-dono's noncreature damage immunity. I'll start development as I finish both my Exiles Matter Deck, & Mono- Deck. Though I'd like it if I can find a use for Inverter of Truth ; Maybe MTGGoldfish had something like that; it was an Against the Odds Deck. Ah well, better than Tibalt #1 as everyone would say...
Thanks for the update reading; I hope I didn't tick you off or something...
UPDATE: Now the situation escalades: I found some stuff for Inverter of Truth ; but does even one card exist to negate only ETB Triggers I have that can be negated? I got Inverter of Truth , Eater of Days , Leveler , Hunted Horror , & Dust Elemental ? Even if one of this even exists, AT ALL, I'd be more than happy to try & get a copy; you know, selective ETB Trigger Negation? Ah whatever, I can't even find something close to that... DX

I don't really have much experience with Lazav, but I think a neat trick to have on hand would be the capability to turn him into creatures who are very cheap for their size but have drawbacks when they come into play. Myr Superion , Skaab Ruinator , Hunted Horror , Eater of Days and Phyrexian Dreadnought all lose their drawbacks if you stick them in the 'yard and have Lazav turn into one. Likewise, it might also be worthwhile to find room for Buried Alive so you can line up three options for Lazav.

Blue_Flame Thanks! In a previous build where I had the Torpor Orb and creature shenanigans main deck (pre surprise sideboard attack) I ran 2x Eater of Days in the sideboard and love the card, I only took it out because people usually just boarded in artifact hate against the orb but it would probably be awesome again. I'll test having it in again and see how it goes. Cheers :)
