Now I know this isn't going to go down well initially. But I used to have Zedruu stax deck in my casual meta. Seeing cards such as In the Eye of Chaos , Stony Silence , Null Rod , Blood Moon , it makes me wonder if there's a Flash -rector deck out there, or a jeskai Stasis build for cEDH.
Not that it would be much better than Keranos blue-moon, but the draw power in the cz seems like something worth considering.
Anybody know of any spicy lists?

Circu is also better than just exiling all opponents libraries, if you exile a Flash in one deck, a Flash in another player's hand is unable to be cast, meaning the combo often locks out instant-speed interaction that may be able to save an opponent from drawing from an empty library, as long as any other opponent has the card in their deck. Not always super useful, but a rather nice upside in some circumstances.

I would drop Hope of Ghirapur (because its very slow, despite being powerful) in order to include the Leonin Relic Warder that you said you couldn't fit.
It's very desirable to include him because he a piece of removal when not being a combo piece.
It's also probably not what you want to hear, but a Thrassios Tymna version of your deck would be much much better, Tymna itself is strong as fk, but if that's not enough you would gain access to Flash .

- Hello fellow imaginary friend player. Thanks for commenting. Yeah, I think our builds are in different directions. I was trying to make it different from the standard edhrec +1/+1 normal counters good stuff build.
The problem scenario you described with Laboratory Maniac can be solved with Flash . Not really sure what you mean when you say labman is not the gameplan? That is literally the only gameplan for this build.

pesmerga87 You are totally right that Dramatic Reversal is a dead card. That is why I am taking it out. So every game I played with the deck over the weekend the deck either draws out and I lose or I get Laboratory Maniac . So I feel like the Deadeye Navigator combo and Dramatic Reversal are to slow. Which sounds crazy.
Flash is going to come in because there was several games where an opponent would kill toothy and force me to draw the rest of the library. I am thinking Spellbook and Noxious Revival to replace the deadeye and venser. I am really excited for Simic Ascendancy in the new set.

I actually also have a less-commander-dedicated list for Vannifar at Vannifar is for Value.
It is a hybrid combo-control list with around 26 total pieces of interaction, and a flash-hulk combo that, while not instantaneous from the commander, does fully work from the command zone and 2 creatures, with an untap or a couple turns. The deck gets Spellseeker for Flash or it gets Summoner's Pact for Protean Hulk . Fierce Empath for Hulk also works.
Another line I have considered but do not run is Body Double & Breaching Hippocamp . If you drop the empath and another card, after you fetch Spellseeker , sacrificing it for a Hippocamp and then untapping Vannifar, fetching the Double to copy Spellseeker to get the other piece is quite a fun combo. It is less card efficient, but more creature-efficient.
Soren841 I have always said Vannifar is tier 2 as is, and could be tier 1. I am doubtful I have made Vannifar sounds worse than that. If I did, I apologize. You make it seem way better than it is though, and I am here to be a realist.

Stax without White, Black, or Red a difficulty when going a creature route that Vannifar implies. Maybe some cards like Sphere of Resistance, Damping Matrix, Trinisphere, Thorn of Amethyst and Null Rod can be run, but that just makes some opponents struggle, an opposing hulk or druid deck will outrace Vannifar with ease at that point, do to the inconsistency of finding these stax pieces without fetchable tutors like Trophy Mageing for Trinisphere... All worse than just fetching a Spellseeker for Summoner's Pact for Protean Hulk or seeking a Flash in many cases.
The commander isn't as good as it seems, it is a slower tutor than Sidisi, Undead Vizier in many cases, as there aren't any amazing lines.
