Paradox Engine would be so mean in this.

Sorry it's taken so long for me to get back to you all; these last few weeks have been super busy.

hookedonkronix: I've definitely been considering it! I just need to find a slot...

DrkNinja: I'll definitely consider him, thank you! Have you considered adding Paradox Engine to your list to make Scepter/Arcanist go infinite?

filkinsmark: Thank you for your comment! I'll take a look at your deck as soon as I have some time. Are there any major mana rocks I'm missing, other than Grim Monolith?

So the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of Naga Vitalist. One of the issues I had was not being able to produce blue mana on repeat like I could with green, and he would fix that.

Also, it appears that Oracle's Vault will absolutely combo with Paradox Engine. It counts as play for lands and cast for any non-land cards. I think the fact that I can do that means I can absolutely go all-in with the mana/ballista strat. I will make some changes and test it out!

I did have Hope Tender in here at one point, and I ended up removing it FOR Majestic Myriarch lol. I like having out a large creature to scare people away from attacking me, and with the River Hoopoe out, I can hit once or twice with a flying Majestic Myriarch before dropping a Walking Ballista for the win. That said, I will definitely try the deck out with a more "all-in" strategy with the mana ramp and searching for the ballista. With that in mind, I do like what you're proposing!

The only thing I'm not sure of is the Oracle's Vault's ability to trigger Paradox Engine. It specifies that you play it without paying costs, so I believe that won't count for casting to trigger the engine. The rulings on Gatherer talk about casting, so I may absolutely be wrong.

I would consider replacing Majestic Myriarch and Nissa, Genesis Mage with 4 Hope Tender, which will also untap your Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun (leaving you with 1 spare slot).

Oketra's Monument would then become Oracle's Vault, which can create a loop with Paradox Engine to look at the top card of your library and cast it without paying it's mana cost. Each card cast will untap all your non-lands and reboot your tap/untap cycle.

Nissa, Steward of Elements is a side-board must, but I would drop a Negate to play 2 Nissa, Vital Force (using the spare card slot). If you can get the emblem of Nissa, Vital Force, you could get a number of added card draws.

I might move River Hoopoe to the side-board to play a mana-dork like Naga Vitalist for more consistent mana, earlier in the game.

So with a little more thought and searching, I think I'm going to change the Conqueror's Galleon  Flip out for Quicksmith Spy... have it hit my Paradox Engine and now I can just tap and draw a card and then cast to untap and draw again. No need to spend mana to draw! I'll playtest to see if it's worth it, but I imagine it is.

Entrei on Converting to a more competitive ...

So I have an EDH deck, Politics Schmolitics, which for a while I have not been improving with certain cards which I blacklisted, as I felt they would break my deck in terms of my playgroup. However, my LGS has made an anything goes EDH league (not including banned cards) so I decided to try to put these cards in. The cards are, in no particular order: Paradox Engine, Library of Leng and Dream Halls. Given I want to swap the deck between my pod and my LGS tournament, what cards should I change to accomodate my blacklisted cards?

Ok - Ok - Ok .... I was just playing around with the concept. In the limited number of test hands that I drew, I drew lands. This is not likely to be consistent. I have added lands and cards that allow me to dump lands in the grave. I still would like to try to develop the concept further and maybe even take the deck to a FNM.

The idea is still good - If you can combine Oracle's Vault with Paradox Engine, you should be able to draw and cast at will.
