Mairsil, the Pretender
Legendary Creature — Human Wizard
When Mairsil, the Pretender enters the battlefield, you may exile an artifact or creature card from your hand or graveyard and put a cage counter on it.
Mairsil, the Pretender has all activated abilities of all cards you own in exile with cage counters on them. You may activate each of those abilities only once each turn.

Mairsil, the Pretender Discussion

I want to find more cards like Chaos Wand . That is either artifacts or creatures with weird activated abilities. The stranger the better.
Thanks for your thoughts.

I love Mairsil, the Pretender . He can be troublesome to get going because you really need to cage a flicker effect like AEtherling . Once that is out of the way though he turns into one of the hardest to kill commanders I've ever played or seen played. I usually don't kill people with commander damage like a normal voltron deck does but the option is there. Usually I combo off with him in some gross fashion like Tree of Perdition + Spikeshot Elder . Still I tend to think of the deck in a manner similar to voltron because of how commander reliant it is.

Secondly, I like the bit of lore that you added and it will be nice to incorportorate. The entropomancer class sounds really broken in terms of abilities.
How about this:
Legendary creature - Human? Wizard
Flying, First strike
When ~ enters the battlefield, create a Legendary artifact token named Sphere of Annihilation with ":Exile target creature." and ", sacrifice ~: Put a creature exiled with ~ under your control."
This should keep the flavor, while toning down the power level.

Thanks for the suggestions!
On a side note, who else thinks we need a vampire for a commander so we can include all colors of vampires?

Darkshadow327: Could do Mairsil, the Pretender (put Bloodline Keeper Flip in the cage if it dies, plus get additional silliness with tap abilities). Or Kess, Dissident Mage to reuse tutors, but that seems less synergistic.

What is all this noise even about? Prime Speaker Vannifar is easily 'high power' if not competitive... Birthing Pod is a powerhouse of a card and having it in the command zone should be great. Probably going to suffer from similar issues to Mairsil, the Pretender though...
Needs/wants haste and requires some amount of setup to go off in one turn.

One of my favorites is Mairsil, the Pretender.
Legendary Artifact - Equipment
Equipped creature has, ", : You may exile an artifact or creature card from your hand or from your graveyard and put a cage counter on it." and "Once per turn you may cast an exiled card you own with a cage counter on it."
Name your favorite commander (creature/planeswalker) and create a card for your EDH/Commander deck.

Thinking of swapping out these cards:
Reliquary Tower: While playing I found that having no max hand size was not that necessary as card draw was used more to keep hand stocked at 7. Also notably with Omniscience drawing a lot of cards, I can play them before the end of turn. Finally, sometimes I find that I am drawing cards because I want to discard certain cards in my hand so I can mana cheat them out with graveyard retrieval.
Arcane Lighthouse: This deck does not use enough single target removal to warrant a colorless land drop.
Nevinyrral's Disk: Without a built-in synergy like Avacyn, Angel of Hope or having Mairsil, the Pretender being my commander, this card is too slow of a board wipe. There is enough non-specific permanent removal in the deck to play something faster like Damnation.
