Planeswalker — Narset
+1: Look at the top card of your library. If it's a noncreature, nonland card, you may reveal it and put it into your hand.
-2: When you cast your next instant or sorcery spell from your hand this turn, it gains rebound.
-9: You get an emblem with "Your opponents can't cast noncreature spells."

I also find it a bit odd that you're running with Grand Arbiter in such an artifact focused deck. I feel like Hanna, Ship's Navigator or Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage would make a bit more sense. You could even make a case for Lavinia of the Tenth since you seem to want to lock down your opponent with this deck and she could do that. Though her ability won't trigger while you have an orb effect out.

Nietzsky sry for the late reply. Statuary has helped me a lot indeed, enables paying for the global taxes as well as generally more expensive stuff. I wouldn't play more cards to have payoff for big mana but I'm rather looking at how to prevent bricking on mediocre threats after having established a first lock. Some of the cmc 1 and 2 spells might also need a 2nd look but to be honest I haven't played with the deck as much recently as I had when writing the primer. Karn, Scion of Urza (also castable with Statuary) might be a great planeswalker for this deck and Narset Transcendent might go in again too. Basically everything that draws constantly in the mid game is rather good. The early game can focus completely on ramp and preventing ramp then.

@DrkNinja: Maybe you can help with this? I'm looking for a card to compliment Jace, Unraveler of Secrets's Emblem. I want to lockdown my opponents; & not be a Rule of Law-type card if possible. Also, I'm keeping Narset Transcendent as it locks down so many things; maybe her Ult. can be used w/ Jace's? Also, I want to know if Animation Module is worth keeping instead of Contagion Engine. It's a One Drop, & is similar to even Contagion Clasp; & can potentially create Tokens. Also, do I need aforementioned Jace at all? or should I keep Narset w/ Mirari's Wake & Night of Souls' Betrayal? Should I cut both of those? Elspeth does have an Emblem for my Creature (Tokens) to back it up, so should I cut at least Mirari's Wake because of this? What 5 cards would you cut? Should I keep Narset Transcendent for Creature Lock? or Jace, Unraveler of Secrets in case you suggest something that can help him? What other cards would you cut & why? & no, Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast is a lot better than you'd think; he compliments well w/ Rings of Brighthearth, & Contagion Engine/Animation Module, creates Tokens that can attack w. Humility in play, sac it to blow up a Creature or Artifact, but what about Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice? Is he worth cutting, or Daretti? I'd like some thoughts if you wish, sir. Thanks again in advance! :)

Goronagar I thought of many of the same things you put on that deck, but some cards just can't agree with my budget... Especially buying all the dual lands needed for 3 color decks.

Scroll Rack is insane. With the wealth of tutors and fetches you have, it's quite easy to shuffle dead cards away from your hand and into live ones. By design, the deck has a diverse range of different types of cards. Because we have very few multi-purpose tools, it's sometimes annoying to be stuck with the wrong kind of cards in hand. Sometimes you need to advance your position, sometimes you need to answer threats. That the real purpose it serves for us.
It may seem like scroll rack only really gets good when you have a full grip, but it's one of those cards that gets a lot of value even in medium situations. Rack also makes it really difficult to fizzle when you have to manually power through your deck with Paradox Engine (a rare occurrence, but it happens. I had to win like that twice yesterday).
If you had to press me to cut a card from this list, it would be Narset Transcendent. I ran her for 2 years and she was either amazing or complete booty. I really like her too. I remember getting to ult her two games in a row the night I first bought my copy in a shop league. Still, it's her high variance that gets to me. Maybe if you're playing in a creature-light meta.

If you're going to throw Oaths in the deck, why not add a few more Planeswalkers? Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Jace, the Living Guildpact, Liliana, the Last Hope, Narset Transcendent, and Venser, the Sojourner have particularly decent synergies with this deck.
