KingofCorns on Leovold: Let's Make A Deal!

FINALLY a Leovold, Emissary of Trest deck in my kind of budget! +1 good sir. I didn't consider infinite mana, good thinking. I'm a big fan, I could really benefit from taking a page out of your book!

My build was aiming for some flashy stuff like Villainous Wealth, Torment of Hailfire, Increasing Confusion and heaps of ramped lands to hold some sway over events. (with the usual limiting of opponents' resources.)

You may be able to activate mana abilities during the resolution of Villainous Wealth if a card you are casting asks for a mana payment, such as a card with kicker or if you have to pay mana for the cards you're casting due to a Sphere of Resistance. As Rhadamanthus mentioned though, Paradox Engine's trigger will not yet have been put on the stack nor resolved, so your mana might be limited (you should have still untapped them once from casting Villainous Wealth though).

The answer to what you want to do is "yes", but let's clear up the details: All of the spells get cast during Villainous Wealth's resolution and you won't be able to activate any mana abilities at that time. You're only allowed to activate mana abilities either when you have priority or when you're specifically in a cost-paying step of announcing or resolving a spell/ability. However, Paradox Engine triggers for each of those spells, and the triggers are put onto the stack on top of the spells. You're allowed to activate the mana abilities in-between each trigger resolving.

Villainous Wealth lets me cast the cards i steal, rather than just put them onto the battlefield. Paradox Engine untaps all my nonlands whenever I cast a spell. Since mana abilities happen without the stack structure, can i untap my rocks and dorks in between when I cast all my stolen goodies, thereby creating even more mana?

Holy cow, when did Intuition go up so much? I remember selling a few copies for around $20 each.

I have gotten more mileage out of Villainous Wealth than Scroll Rack in EDH, but it really just depends on your deck and how well you can manipulate your own library. Hitting someone else's library for a large Villainous Wealth can REALLY cause some havoc.

The reason im using Narcomoeba is because it combos with Mortuary and Altar of Dementia to get me infinite zombies. I sac Narcomoeba to Altar of Dementia and then with Mortuary in play rather than going into the yard, it goes on top of the deck, and then i mill myself two from the altar's ability, which will throw Narcomoeba into the yard, both getting me a zombie and putting it back into play to rinse and repeat. And i think for now i will cut Intuition for Extract from Darkness because of both the price tag and that none of my local game stores have one in stock. As for Villainous Wealth though... maybe dropping Scroll Rack??

Narcomoeba is easy to activate in this deck, but once it's on the board, does it really have the kind of impact you want? A 1/1 flier is not going to worry many people. It's really hard though, because there are a lot of cards that have synergy with the deck... I would slot in Villainous Wealth for Narcomoeba. Extract from Darkness is the hard one because the question is whether you want to replace another GY interaction card with it or do you want to cut something else to make your deck focus even more on the GY? I would say probably cut Sudden Reclamation to make room. Extract from Darkness puts a creature on the battlefield. It doesn't even have to be YOUR creature. It can target any GY. A really awesome play is to play Extract from Darkness and bring back an Eternal Witness. Even better if that Eternal Witness was your opponent's. Then use the E-Witness trigger to bring back Extract from Darkness.
