Platinum Emperion Discussion

Haha no worries, from what it seems you are going for a synergy build. To answer your question yes it is the same reason why Wurmcoil Engine is considered over Ancient Stone Idol. You want to have additional effects once the creature cost goes over the 5cmc mark. For like big colorless creatures, Platinum Emperion might be a considered card, or if you ramp a lot you can consider running the Eldrazi as they are a huge threat and can trigger Jhoira's ability. They are on the pricier side though Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, and Kozilek, the Great Distortion.
If you want huge advantage Metalworker is a card I would advise to get your hands on before the price spikes. Staff of Domination is another one of those cards that can go hand and hand with Paradox Engine.
To protect Jhoira I would recommend adding back in Lightning Greaves, it still goes with your synergy, and it is tutorable. The other option would be adding in counterspells but that would dilute your synergy if you want to add in counterspells. Unless you want to add in ones that go along with theme such as Stoic Rebuttal

hkhssweiss first of all - thanks that you stick around here to help! Heils! Ok so I've added all the pump/evasion spells (from the first concept of this deck) to "sideboard section" (but without some infect creatures like Putrefax so You can check what was my idea.
Merciless Eviction and maybe Hurkyl's Recall will be added simply because we have super-broken Daretti, Scrap Savant deck in playgroup. It's driving me crazy when I build up my zombie or demons army and he's doing broken things with Darksteel Forge, Mindslaver, Nevinyrral's Disk, Platinum Angel. Platinum Emperion and so on... Hurkyl's Recall can be SUPER CRUEL since he's using Mycosynth Lattice too :D

Well it does end up dealing 8 over time with the jump-start. I do agree that giving your opponent a choice generally makes for a bad card. Remember Browbeat? In this case though the synergy with Lingering Souls is pretty efficient, even if it feels like playing small ball.
I am thinking of going up to 4 Lightning Helix though, to get more spell damage in the air and help with all the pay-life when Platinum Emperion isn't around. I didn't really want to make a pure burn deck here, it's moreso a midrange with a burn component. The Lightning Bolt is probably going to be hitting a Noble Hierarch more often than their face. I just thought the Risk Factor could help speed up the clock when the dust settles and it's only a couple Lingering Souls tokens chipping away at their life total each turn.

I like this deck overall. I think it needs some maindeck Blood Moon in this build. Also since you have Faithless Looting and Serum Visions the Madcap Experiment + Platinum Emperion combo would be good in here. You can use the looting and scrying to dig away the Emperion or extra copies of Madcap or get to it faster. I've seen other UR lists trying it here and there. You're already free of artifacts except for the Dragon's Claw on the side, which could easily be something else since the Emperion combo stops burn anyways.

Figuring out my win condition has been the hard part. For aggro I think I'm better off with Fecundity in most builds, and control is often hampered by only using the top card of the deck. Next build out will probably be using the Madcap Experiment into Platinum Emperion win condition. I think I'll also be dropping the Exploration theme to just run Knight of the Reliquary for land filtering and on-demand shuffles.
