SurpriZe I have been told that Show and Tell and Jace, the Mind Sculptor could also be cut from the deck for not doing enough for the game plan.Show and Tell runs the risk of being out valued and Jace hates on one player rather the whole board. If you are willing to cut those in favor for more power by all means do so.

Easybr0wnies343 I love the idea of throwing curse of echoes onto one of my friends who love using a lot of spell or the hard-hitting spells. but beyond that, I love the idea of putting it on myself because the thought of everyone casting Show and Tell or Pox is just a hilarious thought.

Show and Tell, Sneak Attack, Goryo's Vengeance, Reanimate, other reanimate cards are good. But those arent modern though.

Oh my god, I see another possible card, though I might have already suggested it, knowing me. Venser's Journal would be hilarious, but dangerous to put in the deck. That could easily lose you the game. You could try the Laboratory Maniac gimmick, but that would require that you run Enter the Infinite and Show and Tell in addition to the Omniscience you already have. However, the Show and Tell COULD also serve as an interesting alternate method of getting Lich out. You already have the Academy Rector, so Seal of Doom would be perfect. The Zur deck I use in real life has that combo as an alternative to Omni-Tell, and it works because Zur can fetch the Seal. I call it Omni-Rector, Seal of the Infinite.

Maybe an Omniscience and an Enter the Infinite so you could take your turns, find all your pieces, and then rock something like Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake or Palinchron into an infinitely recursive Blue Sun's Zenith + a draw spell under a Isochron Scepter? Use Show and Tell as an enabler for Omniscience?

Kaho is not a bad commander for such a deck, but you might also test with Baral, Chief of Compliance, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, or Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar.

Happy brewing!

ticked-off-squirrel The rules for Blood Moon also state exactly where you're wrong - "Blood Moons effect doesnt affect names or supertypes. It wont turn any land into a basic land or remove the legendary supertype from a legendary land, and the lands wont be named 'Mountain.'"

As for life total I'd just like to say that most edh decks are not red decks. Most red edh decks do not run Lightning Bolt. Red decks that do happen to run Lightning Bolt will only have a ~15% chance to draw it during a typical semi-competitive edh game. Playing around such minuscule percentages is not how we win. I'd even argue that your pile up goblins and pass line is far more vulnerable; most edh decks DO run board wipes. A lot of them.

In the same vein, percentages are the reason we run multiple Altars. Chances are that we won't draw either Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar during a typical semi-competitive edh game. We want one so badly that doubling our chance of getting it is worth the tiny chance of getting both. We'd rather draw two than zero.

This is exactly why decks in every single constructed format run multiple copies of cards they only need one of. For example Omni-tell runs four copies of Show and Tell, four Omniscience, and four Enter the Infinite. By your own logic the deck should instead run one of each, because drawing two sucks. But again in this situation we'd rather draw two than zero. We can win with two, but we're SOL with zero.

Looks nice! Personally I'm not a favorite of so much single-target removal, especially if you have a taxing focus. A couple of other potential stax cards include Grafdigger's Cage (especially nice since it barely affects you), Spelltithe Enforcer, Back to Basics, Stasis, and Pendrell Mists. Also, I think Show and Tell is a little weirdly placed since it lets your opponents play everything you've been keeping them from.
