Creature — Rhino Soldier
At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control a blue permanent, you may put a token that's a copy of Mirror-Sigil Sergeant onto the battlefield.
Mirror-Sigil Sergeant Discussion

I really do like your approach on the lovely goat-lady Expecially the combination of Transcendence and Aetherflux Reservoir is brutal and something i never thought of... Also you're running Mirror-Sigil Sergeant , an absolute alltime favorite of mine. Unfortuneately he always gets removed as soon as he hits the battlefield in my playgroup :'( Can't blame them though, as this card can win games pretty easily on it's own, exspecially with Paradox Haze on the board. Some suggestions for you might be: Perplexing Chimera , a really funny card that causes chaos and prolongs the game as no one wants to cast his gamewinning spells. Exspecially in combination with Homeward Path , which you are allready running the Chimera can be pretty usefull. If you want to go even further, add Thespian's Stage to the list, copy Homeward Path and watch your opponents despair...
I hope this arouses your interest, maybe you are also interested in having a look at my Zedruudeck ( Zedruu, Enlightened Master ) :)

Thanks for the advice elgosu1337!
I really like the idea of Hokori, Dust Drinker. I've considered Stasis for the deck before, but Hokori feels so much better since I'm still strangling mana generation, but don't have to play around an upkeep cost
I actually did have Opalescence in the deck with Starfield of Nyx for awhile. The redundancy was useful in theory, but consistently proved to be unnecessary and I really wanted to drop one of them for another card. I ended up deciding to keep Starfield since it can recur enchantments, and doesn't give my opponents an army if Enchanted Evening is out, even if it does blows up their lands at the same time
Emeria Shepherd was in an earlier version of the deck. Though back then I wasn't playing all the enchantress effects, Burgeoning, and Courser of Kruphix, so I might be able to utilize her much better now since I often have ample lands to trigger her landfall
I've looked at Silent Sentinel before, its super tempting, but I always get turned off by that high mana cost. Still, you're right that Mirror-Sigil Sergeant doesn't add much and the Sentinel could be a worthy replacement. The Sergeant's really only stuck around so long since he's such a good "set it and forget it" threat, but I can probably get more mileage out of him in another deck

Really like the Linvala, Keeper of Silence + Nature's Revolt combo. Have you considered Opalescence as redundancy for Starfield of Nyx? Silent Sentinel and Emeria Shepherd could be good for recursion. Mirror-Sigil Sergeant doesn't seem to add much to your deck. Hokori, Dust Drinker should work well with the tapping and untapping theme too.

Here is the ruling with Mirror-Sigil Sergeant. I got them from gatherer
The intervening if clause means that (1) the ability wont trigger at all unless you control a permanent of the specified color, and (2) the ability will do nothing unless you control a permanent of the specified color at the time it resolves.
Normally, when a token is created by this ability, it will simply be a Mirror-Sigil Sergeant, so itll also have the token-creating ability. (See the other ruling for weird exceptions.) At the beginning of your next upkeep, if you still control the original Sergeant, the token copy, and a blue permanent, youll get two more token copies; the turn after that youll get four; then eight; and so on.
Heres the detailed version of what happens. As the token is created, it checks the printed values of the Mirror-Sigil Sergeant its copying or, if the Mirror-Sigil Sergeant whose ability triggered was itself a token, the original characteristics of that token as stated by the effect that put it onto the battlefield as well as any copy effects that have been applied to it. It wont copy counters on the Mirror-Sigil Sergeant, nor will it copy other effects that have changed Mirror-Sigil Sergeants power, toughness, types, color, or so on.
If Mirror-Sigil Sergeant has left the battlefield by the time its triggered ability resolves, youll still put a token onto the battlefield. That token has the copiable values of the characteristics of Mirror-Sigil Sergeant as it last existed on the battlefield.
Here are the weird exceptions. If any copy effects have affected the Mirror-Sigil Sergeant whose ability triggered, they're taken into account when the token is created. For example: -- If Mirror-Sigil Sergeant's ability triggers, then Mirror-Sigil Sergeant temporarily becomes a copy of another creature before its ability resolves (due to Mirrorweave, perhaps), the token will be a copy of whatever creature the Mirror-Sigil Sergeant is currently a copy of. After the turn ends, the Mirrorweaved Mirror-Sigil Sergeant reverts back to what it was, but the token will stay as it is. -- If the copy ability of a creature (such as Cemetery Puca, perhaps) makes it become a copy of Mirror-Sigil Sergeant and gain another ability, the token created by this creature at the beginning of your upkeep will be a Mirror-Sigil Sergeant with that additional ability.

The token copy won't have all creature types. A copy effect just copies:
- What's actually written on the original card/spell
- Any other copy effects being applied to the original (example: If Clone copies Runeclaw Bear, then a copy of that Clone will also be a Runeclaw Bear)
- If the original is a spell on the stack, the copy effect will also copy decisions made while casting the spell (modes, targets, alternative costs, etc.)
In your example the token will just be a regular Mirror-Sigil Sergeant, which is still pretty good!

If I tap Amoeboid Changeling before my upkeep to give Mirror-Sigil Sergeant all creature types until end of turn, does that mean that the token created by Mirror-Sigil Sergeant will also have all creature types? If so, will this creature type change last until the end of the turn, or indefinitely?

Lazaro46 I'd say that overall, the deck has been performing pretty well at a casual level, maybe 50% tuned decks. If I were to mark the things that are in most dire need of change, it would definitely be the curve and the early game. If you were looking at upgrading the build that is posted here, I would take out some of the weaker win cons such as Herald of Leshrac and some of the less useful cards such as Drana's Emissary and Aven Mimeomancer. The early game is where this deck can struggle; if it gets a good start then it will faceroll against decks of a similar power level, but it can really struggle if it doesn't get a t3 or t4 Paradox Haze + abuser. Additionally, I would run a LOT more interaction. This version of the deck is super greedy, running almost no removal and no counterspells which tends to lead to losing a lot of games.
In summary, I'd take out all but your 5 or so win cons of choice and run some more interaction and more control elements. I'd take out most of the cards like Aven Mimeomancer and Martial Law since they don't do much to slow down an entire table, and I'd add more ways of consistently finding and protecting your good win conditions such as Mirror-Sigil Sergeant. I'll be the first to admit that there aren't a ton of ways that this card wins for you, which is why this is a VERY casual deck. Best of luck in your paradoxical ventures :)
