Helix Pinnacle Discussion

Haha, thanks! I'm a couple of sets behind, since it's been a few months since I've been to my local Commander game, but I'm currently working on updating it with stuff from Hour and Ixalan (that new Gaea's Cradle-lite sounds AMAZING for this deck).
Mimic Vat is one of those cards that seems so innocuous but really does incredible work, especially when you realize you can exile other folks' creatures and copy them too...graveyard hate + creating cloned copies, in addition to all of the crazy stuff you can do with your own creatures!
And yeah, the big weaknesses of this deck are the non-regular damage/life loss-based wincons - infect, Commander damage that you can't block for whatever reason, and any of the weird wincon cards like Helix Pinnacle and such. OTOH, there's nothing quite like pulling out a win using Storm Herd or Aetherflux Reservoir. (I've even managed to way out-lifegain Oloro decks that are 100% lifegain/life-theft-based with this deck!)

What're your thoughts on cards like Killer Bees and Unyaro Bees as a late game mana sink (especially if you can achieve infinite mana)? Nothing seems more hilarious than killing someone with those. I'm just trying to think of win cons that don't involve Craterhoof Behemoth.
Also Squall Line and Hurricane seem to have some potential or at least make everyone more "manageable." Throne of the God-Pharaoh can nuke down your opponents too and can be more brutal with a soft mana lock with Ritual of Subdual/Winter Orb/Hall of Gemstone/Storage Matrix.
Vanquisher's Banner seems like it would be good here for draw and pump. Only downside is it costs 5 CMC but that is pretty easy to pull off with Seton. Quest for Renewal is Seedborn Muse's lil cousin and undoubtedly would be activated the turn it drops but might only be worth it for the Helix Pinnacle win.
Just trying to get the creative juices flowing here lol.

If you're gonna have things like omnath and doubling cube to get tons of mana take a look at Helix Pinnacle. great way to use all that mana and a hilarious win condition. Planar Bridge is another great way to tutor with a lot of mana as well.

Thanks for the suggestion. The life gain is just kind of a bonus. The Staff of Domination combo usually wins by drawing your deck, casting all your green creatures with the infinite green mana you can now generate, casting Craterhoof Behemoth as the last creature and then Concordant Crossroads to give all your creatures haste. The last step is to swing with your giant army and win. I had a similar idea to yours of adding Helix Pinnacle but we will see.
