I think you should run a playset of Paradoxical Outcome. It really helps you combo off, and you have so many good etb triggers that it's really easy to abuse. Also, I would take out Incendiary Sabotage from the sideboard and add in Radiant Flames, since you don't have to sac an artifact. I would also play Shock in the sideboard instead of Transgress since shock can also deal with the Saheeli-Cat combo by killing one of the blinked Saheelis.

I did a few test runs in the playtest area, yeah, deck is busted. I was going to try to build a weird version that included Paradoxical Outcome as the redundant piece (don't ask me how I planned to cast it) but this version is far better. It forces interaction from the opponent on turn 2 or 3 and if they do not have it then you just get to win for free. Really good against other combo decks because the fishbowl is so much quicker than them as well as good against every deck that does not have consistent removal in the early game.

With all of that information at the ready, it seems that Jund is a really terrible match up... How would you suggest beating Jund? The side board looks like it is ready to interact with specific hate like Leyline of Sanctity and Eidolon of the Great Revel, but I do not see a clear plan against Jund.

Maybe Paradoxical Outcome is the needed redundancy against grindy decks like Jund? In the early game you play like normal trying to combo off and inevitably failing against their removal suite, then at the end of their turn on turn 4 you just get to cast Paradoxical Outcome, return all the equipment, probably draw one of the creatures in the process, then just go ham on the following turn. I think it could work well, what do you think? Is there a clear plan that I do not see?

I have tested Scrap Trawler and it is pretty darn amazing and doing great work..I completely removed trading post and have not looked back ever since. Other cards I'm currently testing and highly recommend is:

Paradoxical Outcome might be what you're looking for, there was a combo deck for a little bit with that and Aetherflux Reservoir

NoFeet Foundry Inspectors, a bunch of low cost artifacts and Paradoxical Outcome

Take all artifacts back, recast them for free and gain 50 life, burn baby burn. :)

I'm pretty sure Cheerios can see competitive play now. With the mentor plan as backup, they have a lot of good ways to storm off. I just want a way to generate plenty of mana for Paradoxical Outcome, although that card might be overkill.

iamyoona: I think both those cards could be great. I never thought of LED but it has certainly got potential in this list.

z2aaa: Thanks buddy :-) This deck is for multiplayer. Hurkyl's Recall is very powerful. My only issue with it is that I really dont want to bounce Isochron Scepter and Paradox Engine. Painful Truths is really interesting. Ill have to give it a longer look. Thank you.

Ohthenoises: Paradoxical Outcome is great. Thank you :-)

With all of the artifact mana have you given thought to Paradoxical Outcome? You can use it to save stuff from a wipe or you can use it as a draw engine by floating mana, bouncing mana rocks, then drawing that many cards, then use that mana to recast the rocks.
