Banding only affects combat, it doesn't make two creatures one creature. The interaction you mentioned between Prodigal Sorcerer, Royal Assassin, and Sengir Vampire will not work. Same with the Cockatrice/Sengir Vampire interaction (Lure works the way you want it to, but the Vampire can only deal damage equal to its power, Cockatrice's damage doesn't count for its ability). Banded creatures remain completely separate except during combat, and even then, they are only joined in the sense that they can be blocked together.

I like what you're doing here. But I have a picky detail to point out. Yes, Tidewater Minion goes infinite with Illusionists Bracers. BUT it is an ineffectual without a third piece (permanent that taps for mana for infinite mana, Prodigal Sorcerer for the win, etc.) Small detail, I realize, and the 'combo' is technically infinite without it.

On that note, Minion is not the only combo like that with Bracers

Aphetto Alchemist works similarly, but he only targets creatures and artifacts, so you'll need a Tim or Rock to make anything cool happen.

SB recs: 4x Hydroblast, 3x Relic of Progenitus, 3x Echoing Truth, 3x Annul or Steel Sabotage, 2x Dispel. Maybe find a spot for Sylvok Lifestaff

Mainboard recs: Rush of Ice, Containment Membrane, sub Ponder for Preordain (or, use fetches/shuffle effects to maximize Ponder)

Either board possibility: Prodigal Sorcerer for use w/ Sigil of Sleep

Well in that case you want to build around two things. Tap abilities and walkers. Maybe just choose one of those? Tap abilities will be less hated but still strong.

Some good ones to get you started Basalt Monolith, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Galecaster Colossus, Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Serendib Sorcerer, Fatestitcher, Prodigal Sorcerer.

Perhaps wizard tribal as a subtheme since they love their tap effects?

Make a pingers deck! Prodigal Sorcerer, Prodigal Pyromancer etc! I suggest Temur or whiteless.

I swear, you and I are twins in terms of our experiences with magic. Back in high school I started playing magic around the onslaught block (or shortly before it). I had friends who bought boxes and sold the packs at school, and my mom was awesome enough to give me a couple extra bucks to help pay for my new addic-er...habit lol. My second deck was a crappy monoblue wizards deck...Prodigal Sorcerer + Curiosity + Mind Over Matter was my wincon. BUT when I faced slivers for the first time during mind was completely blown. I knew I had to play them. During college I collected them through various trades. I'm -still- kicking myself for not trading for a foil Sliver Legion. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20 huh? I too made an incredibly overpriced sliver deck...but what's weird is just how similar...and different our choices are.

+1 on principle. Long live the hive and all that. I'm still analyzing your deck, because you put far more ramp in your lands than I did. I rely more heavily on control, ramp and rocks. My only suggestions for a replacement would be swapping out Farseek for Nature's Lore. I'd prefer to have that one mana free to perhaps cast something else on that turn. But that's just my opinion. Also, why don't you have Gaea's Cradle not in here? It'd be perfect lol. By the way, i'm so jelly of your DCI promo Crucible of Worlds. Are you a judge? Or did you actually shell out the cash to buy that bad boy?

Totally understand! Im glad you got a chuckle from the jank lol.

I made a few brews trying to break panharmonicon. A long time ago i made a Tim (Prodigal Sorcerer) deck. So when i saw pan and Quicksmith Rebel i attempted some silliness based around that! Tim 2.0. Panharmonicon+Quicksmith Rebel+Narnam Cobra...supported with Blossoming Defense and Heroic Intervention. It was a ton of fun to play and beat mardu relentlessly. Also had a hidden theme with Metalwork Colossus.
This standard is excellent for homebrew stuff. Did you ever play against infinite whales? Lol. Best Quote for MTG i have ever heard came from that deck... the fuy said I attack you for an unneccessarily high amount of infinite damage, GG

LVL_666 on Hm I have a bad feeling about this

I have some questions about some of the synergies though. Doesn't it seem redundant to target a creature using Cyclonic Rift + Cowardice? I're going to return target permanent anyway. Also, your wincon doesn't have much redundancy. If you're going to constantly be dealing damage via cards in hand, why don't you include The Rack as well? Additionally, you may not have enough counter spells to remove every single creature on the board. Have you considered cards like Propaganda? Now, take this worth a grain of salt, but maybe you could consider incorporating cards like Prodigal Sorcerer + Curiosity + Mind Over Matter? While it is a reliable wincon it also feeds into your deck's strategy. Especially Sorcerer.

Overall, your strategy of constant board disruption seems like a good way to keep the pressure up on the opponent. I can't wait to see how this deck evolves further.
