The problem is that creatures are very easy to chump with. You want stuff that can't be gotten rid of, hopefully with deleterious effects, although it's fine if they're neutral. Even something like a used-up Sphere of the Suns can be great with Zedruu, since it doesn't do anything but sits there, drawing you cards.

Mana fixing: Alloy Myr , Abundant Growth mana fixing for 1 green, Pyramid of the Pantheon , Fellwar Stone , Fertile Ground , Joiner Adept , Manamorphose , Pillar of Origins only helps with Ur, Sphere of the Suns , Sylvan Caryatid , Trace of Abundance could be hard to cast, Chromatic Lantern , Coalition Relic , Commander's Sphere , Darksteel Ingot , Draconic Disciple , Manalith , Opaline Unicorn , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , Vessel of Endless Rest , Crystalline Crawler

The point is you need a bunch of artifacts or low drops that add mana or fix your mana. This way you could focus on lands that don;t come in tapped or lands that are limited to playing different spells. If they draw a card in some way that is ideal as well.

Darksteel Reactor just seems reaaaal slow to me. Even with Contagion Engine . Maybe if I added a Doubling Season ? It would make Sphere of the Suns more useful, too...

Hellkite Tyrant is a beast! Totally forgot about that guy! It'd be kind of hilarious with Mycosynth Lattice , too :P I'm gonna try and find a spot for him.

ZypherW:
I don't have a LOT of graveyard recursion, the main ones being Trading Post , Buried Ruin and Glissa, the Traitor . The real reason I'm using Sphere of the Suns is to fix my mana early on with no conditional clause. Later in the game it's just going to be sacrifice fodder or destroyed by an Oblivion Stone or something so it's okay if it's out of charges :P

I could be wrong, though. I haven't played this deck enough to know how it'll work out, so I'll keep those in consideration! Appreciate the help!

And you've got me thinking about my graveyard now... maybe I'll add an Elixir of Immortality ?

Not sure how much graveyard recursion you intend with your artifacts, but you might like the Corrupted Grafstone , Fellwar Stone , or Star Compass instead of the Sphere of the Suns .

@frezzreaper: I'm currently trying to understand where this could be going for the better. Ramp is good, but I never really knew how splash colors work in Magic as a whole. Is it there for more underrated colors? If is such a choice here, maybe it's because of how so few of such things could be of use here as so many ran Atraxa as the CMDR here, & how I really believe what the true Superfriends CMDR would have to be something not released yet at worst. I simply chose Sliver Queen for this. Also, huh. Paradox Engine does nothing here it seems. I'll... just remove the infinite Clockspinning combo from there. Next, you... might have a great point about that. The Walker Base is too out there, & some are better w/ Creatures than anything else. Didn't think of Sphere of the Suns actually... >~< I'll see what I can rework the Rocks, & non-Dork accelerators... I'll also see what's underpowered the worst of my Walkers as well. If you want to help me still; note that I'll NEVER afford Timetwister ever. Though this means I'll have to cut Samut, the Tested as a result. Sadly, the same goes for Vivien Reid. Also, I actually prefer more than 5 board wipes anyway. What is the number of Tutors you didn't mention some time back? I get >=5 Wipes, 10 Accel, & 5 Draw. Aside from all those, I'll take it from here... I'll see what to cut...
