Does Wings of Velis Vel and Ensoul Artifact make it a 9/9? or do they cancel eachother out

I really like the flow you have going. Wings of Velis Vel and Ensoul Artifact seem to be pretty beastly with this build.

It may not be an illusion, but a good thematic card to add to this deck would be Ensoul Artifact. You could put it on your Metallic Mimic, your Aether Vial or you could add Darksteel Citadel to put a cheap high end beater in your deck. It would be a good way to recover after a boardwipe.

Also a strong sideboard card you might want to consider is Threads of Disloyalty which is pretty powerful against any deck that runs Death's Shadow or Tarmogoyf.

Lantern of Insight empowers the other player's draw cards and discard to graveyard strategies.

A few key lands could help. If you use Ensoul Artifact, then Darksteel Citadel can obviously be the land of choice. Zhalfirin Void can help you Scry more safely than Halimar Depths. Index and Sage of Epityr are two cheap Scry cards for setting up your next 5 draws. The Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx land is your devotion land.

some really interesting synergy going on with these suggestions.... I kinda like the idea of having the power boost/devotion effect from Grand Architect and his secondary ability can play off of artifacts like Lantern of Insight which gives motivation to run Ensoul Artifact....Temporal Mastery and Cloudform seem pretty logical too.... Now its a matter of playtesting and making substitutions to make it all fit... While still trying to hold onto the roots of this deck.

Lens of Clarity would be pretty good (at least the first copy played in a game - no need for more than one), more so with cards that interact with the top library card... actually, why not just play Lantern of Insight if you want a 1-cost artifact that gives you access to the top of the library? Oh, right, you don't need to reveal with lens, but otoh lantern gives you some use of extra copies. But Ensoul Artifact is only good if there's more artifacts to enchant (but then it's also very good).

Lens of Clarity can be a pretty efficient with an Ensoul Artifact and Reality Shift or Blessed Reincarnation. Temporal Mastery would also be a good addition. You also wouldn't have to reveal your cards. Displacement Wave can destroy morphed and token creatures without touching your permanents. It also makes casting Cloudform pretty easy to give your creatures flying and hexproof before you get to their indestructible unblockable part. It also adds some nice devotion. Mostvof these cards are cheap too.

Hi NuclearSquid, I think you need to make a choice either to build this deck for Standard or to try and make it work for Modern. For standard you would need to accept the rotation but for modern you will still need to upgrade your card selection, using cards from older modern legal sets, notably the Mirrodin and Scars of Mirrodin blocks. The third option is you make this a singleton deck with Tezzeret the Schemer as the commander in Brawl, though again rotation is a factor.

Modern tends to be faster (things get serious turn 4) than Standard, simply because the larger card pool means the efficiency of the cards is optimised more. So for example cards like Memnite, Inquisition of Kozilek, Mana Leak or Ensoul Artifact are options you can use, that play faster than cards in your deck. Additionally, conventional wisdom is that lands which come into play tapped like those fetched with Evolving Wilds are not what you want in modern because of the loss of tempo.

Whatever you decide to do be it build for Modern, Standard or Brawl, I wish you luck and have fun brewing.
