Cool deck! You might like these: Winter Orb (tap it with your general before your turn starts, and you get to untap all your lands while everyone else only untaps 1), Static Orb, Storage Matrix, Drift of Phantasms (finds Verity Circle), Muddle the Mixture (finds either piece of the Illusionist + Greaves combo), Merchant Scroll / Spellseeker (finds Muddle the Mixture), Urza's Incubator, Birthing Boughs, Riptide Replicator, Amoeboid Changeling, Mothdust Changeling, Shapesharer, Quicksilver Fountain

siops02,

With the inclusion of this new package, oracle and leveler, these cards are no longer terrible. The problem used to be that they would remove your commander, which obviously, was a part of the previous combo. This is no longer the case. Now, a real discussion opens up for these cards. I will say this though, I think Synthetic Destiny is better than Mass Polymorph for several reasons. First, it is instant speed at the same mana. I would argue that double blue is slightly worse, but trivial. Second, because it is instant speed you can tutor it with cards like Merchant Scroll. However, I'm not really sure if an argument needs to be made to run one over the other, since if one is viable, they probably both are. Also of note, Mass Polymorph can be tutored by Personal Tutor, which tbh, is a pretty crappy tutor lol.

The only real reason, in my opinion, to not run the cards is because they cost so much mana. But, 6 mana to win the game from a single card isnt terrible. It will just be a lot harder to protect the win.

I believe for Kykar + Ruby Medallion + Sluggishness to produce infinite mana you would also need something like Spark Double, Illusionist's Bracers, or Anointed Procession, right?

These might interest you: Wild Research, Lunar Force, Hall of Heliod's Generosity, Distant Melody, Bident of Thassa, Coastal Piracy, Idyllic Tutor, Merchant Scroll, Requiem Angel

For cEDH level, I'd recommend putting in:

Mox Diamond , Fellwar Stone , Talisman of Progress (better than Signet) for additional mana source

Mystic Remora for additional card draw

Ponder and Preordain for draw/top deck manipulation cantrips

Drown in the Loch for good removal/protection, as well as Reality Shift for extra removal.

Dispel , Delay , Flusterstorm , Spell Pierce , and Mental Misstep are all good protection/mitigation spells at cEDH tables, as well as Force of Will

Vampiric Tutor for your instant generic tutor and Imperial Seal if you can afford it. Lim-Dul's Vault is also a good tutor/pile maker and Merchant Scroll can search Dramatic Reversal and any counterspell/blue removal spell.

Maybe cards are Chain of Vapor , Blink of an Eye , and Into the Roil if you want more removal, or Pongify and Rapid Hybridization if you want more creature removal.

I'd recommend removing Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots as these are only relevant when you have a creature on board and are only sorcery speed protection for said creature.

With the banning of Paradox Engine , Despark does not have many relevant targets. In fact, I'd say it's only niche to reanimator targets or any other big creatures that get cheated out, which is VERY dependent on your meta.

Arcane Denial is something I'd only find not bad if it's literally used to protect your win con on the turn that you're going to win; otherwise, you just netted your opponent over you. This one's up to you but I'd rather not play it.
