Hey Megalomania, Yeah I think the Helm Combo might be good for winning, and maybe using Rest in Peace (I'm not sure which would be better). However, I am torn. The stax aspect might be good, and if I go that route, I could probably take out Silence.

Yeah... however Sisay isn't a fast combo deck, it is a hybrid combo-stax list, and Arcum can't switch between those, making it suck going late-game, while Sisay have a very consistent game for, you know, the whole game. In fact, I would rarely ever use Arcum over Sisay for anything, it wastes more space in the deck to combo out, needing a ton of artifact creatures, etc. It has work protection, despite countermagic being nice, Dosan the Falling Leaf negates countermagic, and tutorable answers for any problem is what Sisay gives, white having incredible options like Grand Abolisher, Silence, etc. and green not falling far behind with Autumn's Veil.
Arcum Dagsson isn't even a bad deck, it just isn't comparable when looking at how much better Sisay is in the current meta. Trust me, Arcum could eventually be better given they print a bunch of good artifacts to tutor up that protect the line, and if their ends up being a better line, that could implement a well-timed Defense Grid before Paradox Engine, yet still keep going off with speed and resiliency to effects like Null Rod, and not wasting too much space in the deck, like maybe only 5-7 cards like Sisay.

Love the list!
Additionally how has Traverse the Ulvenwald been?
Especially during early game when you don't have Delirium triggered, I find it a dead card most of the time.

The deck's weakness is it's a fair non proactive deck lacking blue, helm control is probably the ideal form the turbo fog playstyle wants to be in legacy (unless somehow Knight of Autumn makes maverick the best D&T). The problem is Silence only delay's the combo decks from winning.
Now maybe if taking some of the ideas from how blue handles fog effects maybe consider permanent based "fog" in cards like Solitary Confinement (leyline + fog permanently as long as you have a non drawstep based draw effect) or Elephant Grass (most decks will have a hard time paying the 2 mana for more than one creature). another card to consider might be Winter Orb, for you having just one land might be plenty, for the opponent it might be too taxing.

This is dope!! I love alt win con decks.
Reminds me of my Approach of the Salt deck.

You could swap the commander with Rhys the Redeemed to gain access to white. This would give you cards like Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Mother of Runes, March of the Multitudes, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Silence, Haazda Marshal and Wirewood Symbiote. And you could still run Oviya in the deck.

@senholo Oh! I missed that it was budget. And gah, holy crap, I can't believe how expensive Leyline of Sanctity has become! I didn't realize it was that spendy. Sheesh! I wonder where it's being used?
Also, I totally missed that you were at 69 cards! Definitely you want to cut down to 60. I'd cut out some of the spendier things and standardize your amounts of stuff, for instance. Archangel of Tithes is going to be better most of the time than Sunscorch Regent. The latter can get pretty big, but the former is cheaper, more generally useful, and fits your deck's overall concept.
Another thing that might be fun, though it can be spendy, is Norn's Annex. You can cut down the price some by taking a hit to your life, but with things like Suture Priest, it'll tax your opponents pretty heavily.
Grand Abolisher there in your maybeboard is great for your deck's concept. Heck, if you have him, and also use Silence, you can keep them off your turn, then throw Silence out during their upkeep. Anything they want to cast, from precious countermagic to other instant-speed spells, they need to do then or not at all. No creatures that turn, no waiting and holding up mana.
Just a few ideas. I like the deck concept and it does look like fun to play. You're going to want to include answers to combo stuff in your sideboard, though, because this deck might fare very well against aggro, but against combo it'll struggle, and control, I'm not sure how that one goes. You have a fair few threats, but a lot of your stuff is scattered between creature 1-ofs and enchantments and such. Where do you find that you tend to struggle the most?

StopShot: I have thought about Aven Mindcensor for this deck multiple times. I crrently have it maybeboarded and it owuld be one of the cards which would be an easy swap. I have also thought about Silence (and in the past have actually stopped a hulk deck with it) however the new hulk line which has been discovered recently is Silence-proof. For reference it's Nomads en-Kor, Cephalid Illusionist, Viscera Seer and Zulaport Cutthroat with Gaea's Blessing and Narcomoeba in the library. From there you just mill until you hit jellyfish, sac it to seer and then keep milling unitl you hit blessing to resuffle.
That being said, as you mentioned Silence is still very good (I swapped abolisher out for it in my Thrasios deck and have not looked back). I will maybeboard it for now.
I have found that Aura Shards in this build is not actually as good as it might first seem. The problem with it is that you have to play it and then have a creature you can ETB with. The other thing is that it draws a lot of hate, so generally it gets removed pretty quickly. This means you can't just set it and forget it for later. Don't get me wrong, it's great in a stax deck but when your focus is combo then Qasali Pridemage is better. Even against stax, I have found that targetted removal is the more solid option.
If you've got some time though I would be keen to get your thoughts on "cEDH" version of this list: Just Stay Dead: cEDH Edition. It's basically the same list but has been tweaked to drop some of the more rounded cards for speed.
