Until end of turn, whenever a player taps an Island for mana, that player adds to his or her mana pool (in addition to the mana the land produces).

High Tide Discussion
11 hours ago
Sigi, I am surprised to see Candelabra of Tawnos in a list that does not run High Tide. Has it proven more useful then Merchant Scroll or Intuition? It seems in theory to be much more situational than the above listed tutors which can get Dramatic Reversal or protection before attempting to combo.

High Tide, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Past in Flames, Pyromancer Ascension, Stroke of Genius and any form of counterspell probably all get an insta include in this deck. There are also a plethora more synergistic creatures for Izzet Spells which you may want to look at, such as Delver of Secrets Flip, Spellheart Chimera, maybe even Treasonous Ogre and many many more.

I gave it some more thought. I'm thinking of adding Peregrine Drake and/or Great Whale in addition to Paradox Engine. They can generate infinite mana with various combinations of Time Elemental, Capsize, High Tide and Caged Sun, which can bounce all enemy permanents.
Two other possible additional payoff cards might be Whispers of the Muse and Blue Sun's Zenith. Whisper is pretty low opportunity cost and can draw my entire deck when going infinite. Blue Sun's Zenith can mill out at least one opponent.
This would require a bunch of cuts. Some possible cuts: Ulamog's Crusher, Mulldrifter, Windfall, Sphinx of Uthuun, Deep-Sea Kraken, Recall and something else (maybe Artisan of Kozilek or Aether Gale... or maybe both and add Temporal Adept or Temporal Fissure.
I wonder if Empress Galina is worth it...

looks rad! +1 from me! sick mana base!
right now i'm prepping to add in infinite turns to my rashmi list. Time Warp, Temporal Manipulation and Time Stretch can go to grave; Eternal Witness, Archaeomancer, and Mnemonic Wall retrieve; then Deadeye Navigator, Progenitor Mimic, and Ghostly Flicker act as catalysts
after that it looks like low cmc control. Rewind is neat since you can leave open mana to Counterspell on another turn. most counterspells read "draw a card... counter target spell" assuming you don't hit something lower cmc.
that's what i love about rashmi. her raw power to chug along as you're just doing your thing: casting spells! if you do go the infinite mana route Thrasios, Triton Hero is a better candidate, but rashmi is less cliche. have fun with it! cheers!

As for other wincons:

I don't think Palinchron combo is fast enough in this deck. The fact that you need 7 lands in a deck that doesn't have green is really bad. I think you should completely focus your deck around your Isochron Scepter combos like some Breya decks are doing. You can at least tutor for those combos versus the Palinchron combo and at least the Isochron combos are good by themselves versus most of the Palinchron combos (outside of High Tide and Phantasmal Image in niche cases)

Smokethulhu Yeah, that's sort of what happens when comparing mono-colored decks with the same general.
xSKINCOLLECTORx I tried to make the list not only as competitive as my budget would allow, but also with the least amount of dead cards throughout the deck. Personal Tutor doesn't really have anything that's worth tutoring. Capsize is not a practical card to run outside of an infinite mana combo. Tolaria West seems like a cool land; however, searching for 0 drops at sorcery speed, not to mention trying to keep the Island count relevant for High Tide. Reality Shift seems like a cool card; however, I am aiming for the most efficient answers for mana efficiency. The only deterrant for Glen Elendra Archmage is the cmc, as I am trying to keep the overall cmc of the list low (as is with most competitive EDH lists). Despite this, I do thank you for your suggestions!

Scab-Clan Berserker is probably worse then Eidolon of the Great Revel and Harsh Mentor and his Renown ability is the drawback it is true, but still he can stop (or hurt prety much) an any fast combo deck (especialy storm decks). In early game, this creature can become renown very easy, especialy considering that it has haste. In late game... well, as this decks builder said: "Burn them fast or die bright!" :P. I think this card is just corresponds to the general philosophy of the deck. But I have to admit that some time ago I cut this guy out of my Grenzo deck after some testing. But if AlmightyTentacle will decide to cut this card, then I would suggest to swap it for Viashino Heretic, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider or Mindsparker.
Eidolon of the Great Revel is a very good card (especialy in burn strategy and especialy in multiplayer), the goal of using such (sometime suicidal) damage dealers is to create the conditions under which You are losing life, but Your opponents losing MUCH MORE! Its like playing with Pestilence. Actualy for this reason I would like to suggest cards like Rolling Earthquake or Earthquake.
Can't say confidently about Burning Earth, cuz I never played with this card, but from what I see I can tell that this card can punish decks that realy greedy for mana, for example it can shut down or slow down some infinite mana combos (Peregrine Drake, Palinchron and infinite High Tide combos say hellow!). But for me it seems like it is to slow spell, but I may be wrong.
Never seen befor this card - Devastating Summons, pretty interesting. For sure I would create two 0/0 tokens and punch for 4 in each opponents face. Actualy this card could create triggers not just fo ETB but for LTB too: (6/15/2010: You may sacrifice zero lands as you cast Devastating Summons. If you do, youll put two 0/0 creature tokens onto the battlefield as the spell resolves. Unless some effect (such as the one from Glorious Anthem) is boosting their toughness, theyll be put into the graveyard as a state-based action. Abilities that trigger when a creature enters the battlefield will trigger, as will those that trigger when a creature leaves the battlefield.). And all this for 1 red mana, pretty juicy.
I have to agree with AlmightyTentacle about copy spells. Unfortunately You can't be aggresive with copy spells in Your hand when there is nothing to copy. In the deck like this one copy spells will be dead draw very often. And You will have to rely on the opponents spells, which is pretty situational I think.
Also, Sudden Demise is a graet spell, don't understand why I didn't see it befor! Need to test it in my Grenzo deck. :)
