Yo! Thran Quarry , Reflecting Pool , Opal Palace , Holdout Settlement , and/or Unknown Shores instead of the 3c enter tapped lands? Ramos, Dragon Engine could be a nice color fix too, especially if you wanted to go for a way to boost counters.

Siren's Call and Alpha Brawl could be funny. I seem to remember a cheaper version of Insurrection, but I can't think of it right now.

The "gift" destruction cards could be neat, flavor wise: Generous Gift , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Curse of the Swine , Beast Within , Terastodon , and even Swan Song .

Not sure Debt to the Deathless is doing much, but I'm probably missing something.

Other group-hug cards to consider Spurnmage Advocate , Skyscribing , Vision Skeins , Trade Secrets , Crescendo of War , and the good ol' Vow enchantment cards.

Mr_eff88 our playgroup doesnt run necessarily as much control, as the big decks in our group tend to focus on pressure heavy locks. We have one player attempting the artifact big boy Karn the Great Creator to lock things in, and another plays the new teferi and show and tell to put into play knowledge pool or omen machine lol. Spell pierce and daze would go in place of cantrips in most cases if more people were playing control, it's just more of a meta decision.

As for banning, I dont think paradigm shift will get banned, as other pieces can interact and do similar things. Jace is the problematic card but again there are ways to answer him. I personally just feel it's the strongest deck, but in multiplayer it also is the deck that gets heat first and puts pressure on you to move quickly or die. The format is fairly healthy and honestly most people cannot access the list which is another problem entirely. Similar to when Trade Secrets saw a reprint in a commander deck and people discovered its widespread brokenness, until wizards reprints functional copies of some of the more expensive pieces a large amount of the player base won't be able to fully access the list. On top of this, being a "simple blue combo deck" is also incredibly difficult to pilot. It is more akin to chess than anything (and being a legacy player you understand the intricacies of when to use control magic and when to let a threat in). I think we are safe for at least a little bit lol.

Trade Secrets is not legal in EDH / Commander.

Didn't even consider that Trade Secrets could actually be banned in commander, but I know it is now.

Hoofta is back in while I screen other potential replacements or get my hands on a promo bribery

Trade Secrets is proving extremely useful, need to test in multiplayer but it feels right
