GabeCubed on Infinite Mana Ramp Question

Just infinite mana combos?

If so, the big other one is Grand Architect and Pili-Pala. Most of the others cost too much mana to start, or aren't worth it, at least to my knowledge.

Master Transmuter is also a nice way to cheat out a Blightsteel Colossus.

You could possibly run Sphinx's Herald if the 8 cmc is too much, but Herald also involves sacking stuff.

You also can try out Scourglass or Nevinyrral's Disk for more board wipes.

Platinum Emperion and Platinum Angel, while they may be immediate removal targets, can stall out the game a bit.

I saw Thopter-Sword in there, and sort of assumed that you wanted combos, so here goes nothing:

Time Sieve + Thopter Assembly = Infinite Turns

Rest in Peace + Energy Field = No longer can take damage

Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void + Helm of Obedience + 1 mana= Infinite Mill

Grand Architect + Pili-Pala = Infinite Mana

Consider the Pili-Pala + Grand Architect combo which gives infinite mana and damage.

Oh those are some great ideas I have actually been looking for Grand Architect for ages then suddenly I found one. I went home put it in my deck and looked for my Pili-Pala only to realize I could not find it anywhere D: I use to have Isochron Scepter in the deck but I was unsure if it was worth it I only have a few cards I really want to attach to it. Also every time I played the blasted thing it got instantly blown up. Some of the others I had not considered.

Grand Architect works great with Pili-Pala for infinite mana of any color. Citanul Flute is a great way to search for both cards. Paradox Engine is awesome for untapping everything. Isochron Scepter works great with all those counter spells, not to mention the aforementioned Paradox Engine. Beguiler of Wills is also thematically appropriate with your concept. I mean, come on "Come let me free you from the tyranny of thought." Too perfect.

you combo off turn 3 by tapping Pili-Pala somehow(likely by attacking), then you tap Grand Architect for 2 colorless(you can do this because his ability works like Heritage Druid), untap Pili for a blue, turn Pili blue with it, then tap Pili for 2 colorless, then untap Pili for a colored mana, rinse repeat.

Because you didn't cover it in your description, I'll mention it here: You can use Staff of Domination and Grand Architect alone to draw you're whole deck, or enough to find your win-con. No Pili-Pala needed for that part. If you're okay with the increased budget, you should totally throw in extra staffs. Also, if you're only going with one win-con(besides the beatdown route) you may want to add more counterspells as well. I would almost say take out the beatdown, and focus on getting your combos.

DEFINITELY get a Pili-Pala. With Grand Architect, it makes an infinite mana combo that can allow Memnarch to steal all of your opponent's permanents.
