How many tap effects are requires to make Paradox Engine playable, if I'm not playing the combo with Isochron Scepter?

For context this is a question based in my Animar deck.

I'd suggest a Paradox Engine, so every time you play an elf you untap all your mana elves and wellwisher so you can keep reusing em.

@Lilbrudder, thank you for your input! @Ohthenoises, thank you for the reference!

I am looking to face off with some very serious opponents. Most of my budget is already in the deck; but I do have cards in my collection and some store credit to spend.

I definitely want to make sure I'm understanding you correctly. You go and tap Sensei's Divining Top, in response cast Dramatic reversal with Isochron Scepter, Paradox Engine triggers. In response tap Sensei's Divining Top, in response cast Dramatic reversal with Isochron Scepter, Paradox Engine triggers. Correct? Eventually you decide to stop and boom draw all the cards? Does Sensei's end up on top or in hand? lol

Tainted Pact I don't have, and Impulse I'm not sure. They're in the mail already. Tainted Pact will definitely go in. Unsubstantiate and Reality Shift I keep flip-flopping on.

Kiora's Follower and Voltaic Key are interesting. Mana Vault is going asap which sorta synergizes too

It hurts to think about taking out any amount of Three VisitsNature's LoreCrop RotationExplorationBurgeoningThe Gitrog Monsteretc. I definitely want to make sure I can hit my colors. Although Thrasios, Triton Hero only really needs to go off. Anything else I should take out?

Any other dorks you think could be worth it? Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Utopia Tree, etc? I don't even run those in my Animar deck. I guess Kiora's Follower is the choice here

Hopefully I can face off against friends with the deck soon. Thanks again!

Agreed... Have they ever banned combos before? More than anything it seems to be the Legendary artifact/Sisay-search combo making this ridiculous. (Still ridiculous inf. combo potential in those other decks but without a guaranteed search it is at least a little more niche)

I say that because Seedborn Muse is almost the same way in game disruption potential but without a guaranteed search it becomes more of a random chance killer.

Anywho I just played a game of Emperor where my opponent on the right was swinging a turn 4 (hasted) Kaalia: slapping down a bunch of destroy all opponents crap demons... & even though my tower was dead in a couple of turns this deck still basically went infinite & won... This is AFTER a couple of wipes against our side!

Very strong, I hope Paradox Engine would not get put into the ban discussion, but in EDH at least it seems to be powerful enough to be put there

I will add your recommendations once I acquire those cards. I recently purchased a Gaea's Cradle as well that will be coming in soon. I spent a lot of $ for a Mono Black Deck recently so I'm just trying to trade for cards at the moment.

Going back to the discussion, I think Priest of Titania seems like a nice fit. With regards to mana dorks/rocks vs. tradditional ramp, I agree that mana dorks will be a much better fit with Paradox Engine than Farseek and Nature's Lore for example. But wouldn't the dorks be more susceptible to board wipes (and creature removal) as well? I understand we have Teeg and Avacyn but I wanted to hear your thoughts on this.

Moreover, what do you think of hatebears in the maybeboard? Would it be best to try and slow my opponent's down with them or focus more on speeding up with ramp? I'm more inclined towards the latter

Thanks for your comment!

Yes, I plan on adding Selvala, Heart of the Wilds as yet another way to build up to infinite mana. I feel the price is a bit unreasonably high for a foil at the moment though. I will probably wait for it to come down a bit more before acquiring.

Paradox Engine is truly silly in this deck. I honestly wonder if it will get banned, because Sisay just seems too strong with this now. Pure artifact decks could really pull off a lot of incredible things with this as well. Personally, I think it's much more disruptive than Primeval Titan ever was, which was only playable in Green decks and that card is banned in the format. Engine can go into literally ANY deck and with a sufficient number of manarocks/manadorks, you can do a lot of combos.

Haha, I'm happy someone else has discovered this. She is ridiculous with paradox engine. Especially if you have worthwhile creatures out (make them choose what they want to remove "pick their poison")

I've had people say "prove it" when I tell them I can slap almost my entire deck on to the table & that those cards will nullify any chance they have.... Sometimes they figure they will Toxic Deluge or Cyclonic Rift me... But I have so much nullification in there they quickly find out that those options are not going to happen, You know green/white legendaries are ridiculous like that: Iona - No blue, Gaddock Teeg - bye bye most board wipes, Avacyn, Hokori - no mana to deal with my board state next turn, then the icing on the cake is to Planar Bridge out Worldslayer

The only card I think you are really missing out on is: Selvala, Heart of the WildsWith Paradox Engine she quickly becomes the keystone for my untap/tap manasource, get her out with your other Selvala & she is mostly all you need for infinite mana production, she is funny with Green Omnath too. Also, pretty strong on her own if they remove the engine.
