Paradox Engine Discussion

MtgLooter I was so heartbroken to see Paradox Engine get banned! My meta is okay with me playing it in casual games, where we have a ban list of certain "non-fun cards" we can't play. However, for when I play in places that I can't use it, I'm considering a few things. One of them being Helm of the Host to throw on Yarok, The Desecrated to be able to pump out more ETB. The other option is to draw the deck out with Blue Sun's Zenith after generating infinite mana with one of those combos. I've also been considering Nexus of Fate in the deck to take infinite turns if you've had some combos stopped.

Blue_Flame thanks for the suggestion! Blackblade is a great equipment for this deck, I'll try to find a spot for it.
camera06000 fortunately, Paradox Engine was never in the deck, only in the maybe board. Although I'm not sure what a good replacement would be. I would like to try out Manifold Key tho, that might be fun in this deck.

Paradox Engine is now banned. In this budget deck it tended to be important. Will need to consider this more.

I am thinking about building this, my meta is getting competitive but not there yet, how bad does it suffer from the Paradox Engine ban?

You asked for help, so here I am:
Paradox Engine is banned.
Cut Manalith and Chromatic Lantern . They are fine cards but there are more efficient ramp options at only 2 mana:
Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Creativity , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Thought Vessel and Wayfarer's Bauble .
Some of your sorceries seem a bit clunky, like Cruel Ultimatum or Life's Finale .
Evacuation and Devastation Tide are great boardwipes, Crux of Fate is a solid budget option and Toxic Deluge is amazing but a bit pricy.
Wurmcoil Engine , Noxious Gearhulk , Neheb, the Eternal and Massacre Wurm are all quite highly costed and don't synergize well with the rest of the deck.
If you want to be mean, you could replace them with extra turn spells: Time Warp , Part the Waterveil and Karn's Temporal Sundering are reasonably priced, both in money and mana.
I personally would throw out all Guild Gates and raplace them with literally anything that does not enter tapped. A good budget replacement would be the pain lands: Underground River , Shivan Reef , Sulfurous Springs .
Lastly, cheap and efficient removal pieces I would consider are: Doomblade, Go for the Throat , Reality Shift , Rapid Hybridization and Pongify .
