So for Gifts Ungiven they just grab Crucible of Worlds Academy Ruins Mindslaver and Buried Ruin. Regardless of what you give them they can pull the combo off.

As for the p9, everyone would have to run them in order to be competitively viable. However that would put a huge strain on people, as they would have to spend huge amounts of money to make a deck have the cards everyone's has.

Also banned for diversitys sake. If they were legal EVERYONE would be running them

Gattison, I do not know how to do that, as this is the first time that I have made a decklist on this website.

Entrei, I have never heard of a card being banned in a format because of its price. As far as I know, all those cards that you mentioned being banned for their price were actually banned because they are simply too powerful, and to what interaction are you referring between Mindslaver and Gifts Ungiven?

Brain Freeze is a good idea.

The major issue I have with Future Sight is I cant reliably protect it with Padeem, which is important to me if I am spending that much mana on it I need to be sure Im going to win the turn it comes down.

I like Mindslaver because its a puzzle. How do I make the worst possible move for my opponent?

@Megalomania: Thanks for the advice!

The combo to win is up for debate. I have Blue Sun's Zenith/Temple Bell with Paradox Engine or Mindslaver + Academy Ruins/Trading Post/Planar Bridge/Elixir of Immortality.

I really like Portcullis & Duplicant in this deck so I don't think I would want Torpor Orb in here. Stasis might be really good! I would need more bounce to make it work and it wouldn't have hexproof without Liquimetal Coating, but it is another Winter Orb to make it more consistent.

Helm of Awakening is really good and I would definitely think about including it, Sensei's Divining Top also, but I'm really not sure about Future Sight. This deck really can't be giving away too much info about itself to the enemy before it locks up the board or it becomes a target when a prison piece shows up.

I would consider The Scarab God and Mesmeric Orb. The Scarab provides you a nice little adjustable clock and triggers Ludviec pretty reliably and The Orb amps up your mill game and can be recurred easily with one of your commanders.

Less impactfully:

Blightsteel Colossus is strictly better than his pre-phyrexia alter ego; I would definitely run Sewer Nemesis or Consuming Aberration over Bonehoard.

Tezzeret the Seeker can go get you any artifact up to 4 mana, even if you can't defend him.

Mindslaver adds a neat shift to the political climate in EDH. Make your enemies friend into his enemy.

In a Red capable self mill deck Feldon of the Third Path and Goblin Welder might be strong additions.

Faithless Looting is good. Also there are a lot of really good tutors out there I would look into acquiring,

And you shouldn't really consider Mindcrank to combo solely with Bloodchief Ascension. If you ran Duskmantle Guildmage too it might be worth consideration but it would still be a dead card 9 times out of 10 unlike The Orb.

You may want to try out some "risky" red soft locks using Krark's Thumb with Planar Chaos/Tide of War/Impulsive Maneuvers.

Think about Uphill Battle and Smoke too.

How about all double-damgers? Dictate of the Twin Gods and Furnace of Rath, those goes crazy with Heartless Hidetsugu.

Mindslaver + Goblin Welder + Spine of Ish Sah may be also fun.
