Venser, Shaper Savant Discussion

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I cut 4x Sower of Temptation for 2x Vedalken Shackles and 2x Venser, Shaper Savant. I agree that I need some way to deal with lands, and I like Field of Ruin, but I wonder if Ghost Quarter would work better herr because its faster and my average cmc is pretty low anyways.

The deck had its maiden voyage at my LGS's EDH event and managed to perform well, winning one game with Labman. The second game could have gone better but for a misplay on my part, but still, the deck proved highly resilient!
I may need some way to loot my yard, at one point I had no way of rescuing Laboratory Maniac.
Flicker effects with my various ETB's proved hugely beneficial and really helped me play around resilient threats. Flickering Venser, Shaper Savant was an all-star.
Azor's draw ability is awesome, but I'd like to make him a little more threatening... I will try to obtain a Runechanter's Pike and test it out!

I've been tuning my Animar, Soul of Elements deck for a while, and while I'm usually quite good at protecting him with cards like Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, Voidmage Prodigy, and Venser, Shaper Savant, I think that I still need more low cmc creatures that can cheat out my fatties, just in case Animar, Soul of Elements gets nuked.
A little information about my deck: I don't run anything but creatures, which gives me a lot of synergy and allows me to make uninhibited use of cards Nullstone Gargoyle and Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, so I'm not interested in non-creature cards like Quicksilver Amulet.
I don't know of many cards like Elvish Piper, other than Djinn of Wishes and Mindwrack Liege, but while they are decent, they aren't quite as efficient as Elvish Piper is, and I could still use more options.

If you like the etb effects, some great ones are Reflector Mage, Cloudblazer, Mulldrifter, Omenspeaker, Eternal Witness, Venser, Shaper Savant, Mistmeadow Witch, Venser, the Sojourner, Mystic Snake, Captain of the Watch, Thraben Inspector, Angel of Condemnation, and Restoration Angel

Venser, Shaper Savant is an amazing card in Inalla and even better since you're doing the Paradox Engine thing. Assuming you have enough mana to cast him and pay for Inalla'ss ability you can return all of your opponent's cards to their hand..
Cast Venser. Venser enters triggering Inalla and himself. Resolve Venser returning himself then resolve Inalla creating a venser token to return whatever.
Yeah you would have to sacrifice the token if you do it again. I Have only been able to do it once but it was great.
Ashnod's Altar and bloodline necromancer gives you infinite Bloodline Necromancers and colorless mana.
With Ashnod's Altar in play Cast Bloodline Necromancer.Bloodline Necromancer enters triggering Inalla and itself.Resolve Bloodline Necromancer (not relevant) then sacrifice it to Ashnod's Altar. Use one of the mana to pay for Inalla creating a token.Token enters targeting the Bloodline Necromancer in the graveyard.(Resolving the token Bloodline Necromancer is relevant to keep the combo going)Then repeat.
Copy an instant or sorcery with Dualcaster Mage. Sacrifice it to the Ashnod's Altar. Then cast it through Havengul Lich before the original spell resolves.
This little combo gave me my favorite win with my Inalla.. A X=1 Torment of Hailfire copied a million times

You mentioned combos, here's a few I've used over the course of my Derevei deck;
I'm sure there's more, but those were just off the top of my head!
