Inverter of Truth Discussion

Ok, so I'm seeing a deck that wants arcane adaptation and descendants path to drop big spells. Fair enough.
I highly reccomend more 1 and 2 drop creatures. Making sure that your t3 Descendants' Path hits something turn 4 is valuable. But how to assess those creatures is important. You want to be sure you have big creatures on top of your deck, and you want to avoid needing arcane adaptation where possible.
To do this, is best to assess a small set of cards you'd be using together rather than a lot of individual cards. Getting a set of cards that work well together is better than a bunch of disparate parts- getting a set which acts as a backup plan to arcane adaptation is even better.
One method to find these sets of cards is to look at what creature type you want to name with Arcane Adaptation and go all in on it.
Pretty much every tribe has big game-changing spells and 1 drops that work well. I'd focus on tribes that like stalling/controlling the game (Spellstutter Sprite lists), Protecting their own creatures (spirits/illusions), or already cheat their big stuff in (Preeminent Captain and Incandescent Soulstoke). There are plenty of tribal lists on this site to raid for ideas.
Changeling tribal is a neiche option which I'll mention here- Mothdust Changeling, Shields of Velis Vel etc- there are Haakon, Stromgald Scourge/Basal Sliver/Skeletal Changeling combo lists you can raid for ideas.
The second way is to look for things that can get value out of your big spells.
Looking at CMC matters is another- Nourishing Shoal, Blast of Genius, Kindle the Carnage, Nahiri's Wrath and so on all offer ways for your big spells to impact the game when you aren't casting them for free.
The final option is other Arcane Adaptation combos, to improve card quality by building in redundancy. Turntimber Ranger and any creature goes infinite if you name ally, Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and Ashes of the Fallen, Myr Turbine and tons of creatures, Quest for Ula's Temple and Inkwell Leviathan is a thing.
The big thing is to pick one plan, and stick to it. Its a lot more difficult to disrupt three spells doing the same thing than three different things. Fix your mana curve with a smooth 'I want this or this t1, this or this t2, and this or this t3' plan, and it'll run smooth.
Good luck, and happy brewing!

I know this is old, but Torpor Orb only negates creatures entering the battlefield, not leaving or at the beginning of your steps or anything. Replace Desecration Demon with Inverter of Truth and you are pretty much good to go.

I think my only concern with Paradigm Shift and Inverter of Truth is that the remaining cards shuffle into the library so I can't stack them. Paradigm Shift looks really fun at 2cmc though. Definitely something I'd like to brew with.
I really like the Bitter Ordeal combo since it's exile and not straight mill. I also like Gaea's Blessing a lot but the variance of drawing it is what has stopped me from using it. I'd feel more comfortable running ways to discard it if I draw it. Or more cards like Brainstorm/Memory's Journey or even Reclaim to get it back into the library. This combo definitely works in the deck's shell though!

Tbh I've been studying this a bit. And wanted to make a combo similar to what you have, but I was also thinking that Paradigm Shift and Inverter of Truth for redundancy may good includes paired with the whole Doomsday LabMan idea. What are your thoughts on those cards?

Saffron Olive's deck is from early 2016, so it doesn't take advantage of Tocatli Honor Guard, which I think is a key card in making this deck work consistently.
Inverter of Truth is an interesting choice, though I think the 4-drops need to be minimized else the deck is too slow. Avatar of Discord only has 1 less power for 1 less CMC, which I think I would prefer.
