Seat of the Synod Discussion

There is no rules reference to give you because the relevant text here isn't in the comprehensive rules, but rather on the card itself. Paradox Engine very clearly states "nonland" permanents, and Seat of the Synod very clearly says the word "land".
The best I can give you is rule 205.1:
We can see that Seat of the Synod is a land because the type line tells us it is a land.
205.1. The type line is printed directly below the illustration. It contains the card’s card type(s). It also contains the card’s subtype(s) and supertype(s), if applicable.

I played cards tonight with a guy who adamantly insisted that Paradox Engine would untap his artifact lands like Seat of the Synod because they are artifacts in addition to being lands. Obviously I disagree, but he claims a judge told him this. Can someone give me a rules reference for him?

This is pretty close to what you already have, I would just cut a few of the basics for nonbasic pain lands and check lands in your primary colors.

Here is another infinite combo:
Not sure if its the right fit here, but I saw you are already running the bracers. Even though you run only a few mana rocks, you can easily add the artifact lands Darksteel Citadel, Seat of the Synod, Tree of Tales, and Great Furnace so there are more chances for him to act like a mana dork early on. If you have Sensei's Divining Top with the above combo, you can draw your whole deck. If you have Kiki or Twin out, you can make infinite copies of the Alchemist, or any other creature for that matter. Now you can kill people with Laboratory Maniac by attacking with 8,000,000,000 copies of it if you want. If you put Squirrel Nest on an artifact land, you would get a squirrel factory. There is probably even more I haven't noticed yet. Seems like it could be cool. Happy gathering!

I built Brago way back when he first came out and have seen him go from fun bounce house to cutthroat stax. It's super interesting when a commander has a ton of range like that.
I think if you're looking for fun you need to set it up so you still have powerful effects, just not ones that are super oppressive. Make your ETBs be in the mid to high CMC range, and have them be powerful effects that don't make the game suck for the other players. All of the following are super good without being oppressive; Angel of Serenity, Trophy Mage, Lavinia of the Tenth, Stonehorn Dignitary, Nevermaker, Spine of Ish Sah, Act of Authority, Sun Titan, Luminate Primordial, Resolute Archangel, Recruiter of the Guard, Knight-Captain of Eos, Grasp of Fate, Exclusion Ritual, Reality Acid, and Parallax Wave (personal favorite).
Be sure to include Brago tech like Panharmonicon, Ancestral Knowledge, and Strionic Resonator (if you want it); good mana rocks to make sure you can get your big ETBs and get the most out of each main phase, Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo, Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Basalt Monolith, Talisman of Progress, and Trinket Mage (into Sol Ring/Seat of the Synod/Ancient Den/Darksteel Citadel); along with some solid draw to make sure you don't run out of steam, Wall of Omens, Sea Gate Oracle, Ichor Wellspring, Tsabo's Web, Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, and Jace Beleren (only use the -1).
