Oona, Queen of the Fae is probably your best bet. There are a bunch of infinite mana combos you can run with her which let you exile all of your opponents' libraries. there are both compact combos like Pili-Pala + Grand Architect as well as ones like Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter + a bunch of mana rocks.

Most of these combos are not only cheap in terms of total mana required to deploy but are also light in terms of dedicated card slots.

The other benefit with Oona is that she can provide you a board state (assuming she sticks) which can be very relevant for control decks.

I also haven't seen anyone using Harmless Offering yet, so I'd be excited to see a working deck.

Not sure what your goal for the deck is but you may want to look into Panharmonicon, Unclaimed Territory, Mirror Entity, Path of Ancestry, Herald’s Horn, and Grand Architect. They are pretty useful for any tribal scarecrow strategy.

so I had to look this up since it wasn't clear on gatherer, Grand Architect does not cause any illusions you tap to be sacrificed. I didn't think so, but since I've run a similar deck in the past, I has to be sure.

Grand Architect

He has forsaken me..Or I've overestimated him.Regardless, the love of power is gone.. sigh

I'm not sure if this was covered in the comments, or if I'm the last one JUST realizing this, but Grand Architect + Nim Deathmantle doesn't combo with Breya, Etherium Shaper :(

Architect says "only to cast artifact spells or activate abilities of artifacts" whilst Deathmantle is a triggered ability when the creature dies.....lame.

Thought this would still work with Eldrazi Displacer + Mycosynth Lattice, but alas the Lattice makes everything colorless preventing us from tapping Breya and her tokens to add with Architects ability...

Now to decide if he has a spot in my list anymore.

this is a really cool deck. the synergy between Grand Architect, Master of Waves, and Slate of Ancestry is insane.

my only criticism is that the addition of Sky Hussar necessitates land cards that are expensive and less efficient. is there an acceptably powerful replacement for Sky Hussar that's mono blue? (maybe Torrent Elemental?)

I really think you want more Blinkmoth Nexus it represents a lot of power and can be free value if you make it blue with Grand Architect. For that same reason I would also play Inkmoth Nexus.

Since you have access to blue, my favourite infinite Mana combo is Grand Architect + Pili-Pala. Also maybe Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind to burn your opponent from your drawing
