Here is another infinite combo:
Not sure if its the right fit here, but I saw you are already running the bracers. Even though you run only a few mana rocks, you can easily add the artifact lands Darksteel Citadel, Seat of the Synod, Tree of Tales, and Great Furnace so there are more chances for him to act like a mana dork early on. If you have Sensei's Divining Top with the above combo, you can draw your whole deck. If you have Kiki or Twin out, you can make infinite copies of the Alchemist, or any other creature for that matter. Now you can kill people with Laboratory Maniac by attacking with 8,000,000,000 copies of it if you want. If you put Squirrel Nest on an artifact land, you would get a squirrel factory. There is probably even more I haven't noticed yet. Seems like it could be cool. Happy gathering!

Always love a fun tribal deck. First thing I recommend is add in some lands that you can get into your graveyard to help enable delirium. Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, etc. Also Tree of Tales and Vault of Whispers are awesome since they have 2 card types. Check mine out when you have a minute, you might get a few ideas. I based my main strategy off of Ishkanah.

@ Worx : Always glad to see you pop up again :)
The current landcounts feels pretty much optimal. So I am not hapy to tweak this total. But I do see your point about Plains vs. the bow. But I think I do not ever use Sisay for him, knowing I have so many other frightening options to choose from. While the mistveil plains I could fetch using other means if really nessesary. But again, you are the second to point me to this bow. As Austin_Smith_of_Cards recently also did. Let me overthink this futhermore...
The artifact lands are indeed a great addition, now that we know that Mox Opal will be here soon xD I know it's a no-brainer. But I just totally forgot about this mox since this build was relatively low on artifacts until the recent changes.
I have been testing with Reki as it's an ok card, so i was looking into upgrading his slot to a more powerful route. And it looks like great minds think alike, as I bought a foil Selvala a few days ago and was waiting to get it delivered. Today I got it and I am also going to enjoy the godly interactions you already had the pleasure to play with.
Thanks for yet another great review!

You are most welcome Party.... mutual help to ensure we have best decks in our respective metas is ALWAYS the goal :)
I would suggest that you swap out Mistveil Plains for Bow of Nylea ... yes, drop to 37 lands... Think about it.... Bow is another legendary to get, can put back Inventors' Fair or other graveyarded card.... then again who cares when we will win.
I also highly suggest you swap Dust Bowl for Ancient Den and Sunpetal Grove for Tree of Tales (Sunpetal can not be fetched and is one of those you rely on just getting and maybe... maybe with KoR - which itself can't be tutored. Then I also HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you get Mox Opal as a ZERO drop legendary rock is ESSENTIAL to an easier win for Paradox Engine - seriously mate - a no brainer. In fact I would even drop a land to get in the Opal .. maybe Razorverge Thicket
Now you know my Sissay deck.... mine is more aggressive towards a reliable turn 3/4 Paradox Engine win, so I swapped out the Loyal Retainers, Sun Titan, Safekeeper and Titania for one drop legends, and Selvala, Explorer Returned is just GODLY with the mana and draw ability on EVERY Paradox Engine trigger..... but also maybe if you do go down that route, you may want to consider Concordant Crossroads for the one drop haste for all creatures - who cares if opponents creatures have haste when you are about to win..... another control option that is FAR cheaper than Dromoka is Dosan the Falling Leaf....
But anyway.... you know I respect and appreciate your deck.... I'll not say anymore at moment.... our decks should be mutually helping one another :)

Agreed ... Russian Foil Engine I picked up for about $AUD 22 from eBay :)
I agree with you on Rings. What I can categorically say with lots of testing now is that Engine is such an overwhelming card that I have slimmed down what I needed in deck that requires too many turns and other players turns.
What I have done is to compensate for the Engine by ensuring players cant do anything during my turn - addition of Dosan the Falling Leaf and Grand Abolisher. I also added Reki, the History of Kamigawa as the main draw cards. And added Mox Opal and Ancient Den and Tree of Tales as well as Chromatic Lantern for the metal craft. It also makes Inventors' Fair highly usable.
I'm finding Linvala is more apt as Engine used against us is a killer.... and I am having issues with Gaddock Teeg as I played him wrong time and I ended up killing myself ...lol
But you should definitely look into Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Oath of Ajani as they are unbelievable.... suddenly your Reiki, Dosan, Melira, Saffi, Grand Abolisher et are now mana dorks..... Plus Concordant Crossroads is an absolute winner!
Happy to be chatting with you :)

I've been looking at building an Ishkana deck, too. I was looking at mine from more of an online place, budget-wise, but I checked out the differences between our decks, and I think there are quite a few budget cards that would help: Tree of Tales and Vault of Whispers both net two types when milled. Vessel of Nascency was a standard in Standard Delirium, since it immediately puts and enchantment in your graveyard. Syphon Mind and Harmonize are both great value cards. Millikin is a great fit in Ishkanah decks, since it can ramp, chump to put two types in the graveyard, and mill, all on its own. Commander's Sphere is the same. It can ramp you from 4 to 5 mana and cycle to fuel delirium as early as turn 4. Foul Renewal should be pretty powerful in this deck, and I had Sight of the Scalelords and Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper for the same toughness reasons. Finally, the piece of tech I'm proudest of is Champion of Stray Souls. If you're already milling creatures into your graveyard, then sacking 3 1/2 spider tokens for 3 real creatures is fantastic, especially since you can let Ishkanah go to the graveyard be be re-risen with fresh tokens. If you move away from budget options, I also think Buried Alive is a good choice. Choosing Arachnoid, nyxweaver, and a fattie, you get Delirium and a reanimation target. I also included a land tutor package. Here's my full list: Spiders.

Triangle of War does what Rabid Bite does, and is recurrable with Glissa.
Deglamer or Unravel the Aether are loads better than Springsage Ritual. How often does four life change anything, but being able to deal with a Theros god, a Blighsteel Colossus, a Darksteel whatever, not split Wurmcoil Engine into tokens or trigger someone else's Dictate of Erebos, or deal with someone else's graveyard recursion are things that matter in nearly every single game. Plus they cost two less to cast.
