Static Orb Discussion

I'm actually working on a The Haunt of Hightower discard build right now, wanting to pack it full of 'symmetrical' discard and sacrifice effects that obviously benefit me more.
SynergyBuild, the thing about my Prossh deck is that Food Chain isn't my only way to win. I run a Pod line, several Tooth and Nail combos, a Necrotic Ooze line, as well as the Eternal Scourge /non- Eternal Scourge FC combos, so banning out pieces seems really impractical for the owner.
Everything officially Banned by WotC
Mana Crypt : For obvious reasons
Laboratory Maniac : Too 'easy' of a wincon
Prossh, Skyraider of Kher : "Powerhouse of a deck that needs to be stopped".
Winter Orb : Too oppressive
Static Orb : Too oppressive
Atraxa, Praetors' Voice : Can generate too much advantage for opponents to keep up.
Teferi, Temporal Archmage : Powerful combo/stax enabler.
Any hard stax that generates hard/soft locks to keep players from playing the game (basically any good stax decks)
Any streamlined aggro/combo that wins the game consistently by turn 5 or before.
We reserve the right to ban cards/archetypes as needed to keep the meta fresh and healthy for new players. We also ask that players approximate power levels before sitting down to play a game of Magic.

Elspeth, Knight-Errant mythic edition (can replace yours with a modern event deck one)
I'm also looking to trade ktk fetches into onslaught ones. I have all except for Flooded Strand. Lastly, I'm looking for

I don't think you understand Stasis is a lock piece, not a combo, Winter Orb, Static Orb, Tangle Wire, and many other cards replacing it when you need to shut down an opponent, and that the deck can be built on a different combo, oftentimes Rest in Peace/Leyline of the Void and Helm of Obedience or any walker that can ultimate, the combo isn't a major part of Staxshifter, while being useful. The deck is a Stax deck, and Aminatou can run other cheaper stax when it wants to. Fall of the Thran is a favorite budget stax include, and Bottomless Pit is too.

The fact that the creatures she (thank you I wasn’t able to tell gender) tutors for do not stay on the battlefield. Yisan’s tutored creatures do stay on the battlefield. This means that when versing, Yisan can grab a Quirion Ranger, for example, and use it multiple times throughout the game. The Quirion Ranger that was originally use to untap Yisan again for verse 2 can be used to weaken the effects of an opposing Static Orb after developing a board state. The Quirion Ranger that Vannifar grabs is used once to untap Vannifar, then sacrificed in order to climb up the chain.
The fact that Yisan develops a board state also affects mana production. Big mana producers will not produce as much because there are less creatures on the board. Yisan can also just win through straight combat damage because of he board state he develops.

Aphoticate Jeleva is probably the best pure storm deck, but I am not a fan in tier 1, it is relatively consistent, yes, but I doubt that alone is what is cared about. I just think after playtesting the deck a lot, it falls to a lot of stax really hard, moreso than other combo decks, almost any stax hits it, from Null Rod, Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Stony Silence, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Arcane Laboratory, Vryn Wingmare, Lodestone Golem, Armageddon, Static Orb, Stasis, Winter Orb, Rule of Law, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Notion Thief, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Ethersworn Canonist, Glowrider, Chains of Mephistopheles, Rest in Peace, Grafdigger's Cage, Leyline of the Void, Chalice of the Void, Trinisphere, Oppression, Bottomless Pit, Liliana of the Veil, etc.
Tons of hate hurts storm waay more than other decks, as they try to abuse the game the most, the game's anti-abusers hurt it the most in response.

Damping Sphere is another combo hoser staple, and Torpor Orb stops any creature deck in its tracks, sure it hurts your 8 creatures but its not like you usually get more than 1 etb from each creature per game anyways
point is, you're gonna need a lot more taxing and combo hose cards than just lavinia to truly stop combo, especially since most combo decks come with counterspells and protection. and you currently have almost nothing to stop popular combo decks like Animar, Soul of Elements, Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Brago, King Eternal, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, i would consider more stax artifacts and tax cards like Sphere of Resistance, Trinisphere and Static Orb if you truly want to stop combo, because combo decks are stacked with answers, removal, protection and tutors for all 3
