Description

This is a list I've been working on inspired by another I've found here. Credit where it's due: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/invention-black/

The base Idea is simple, use the infinite mana combo of Pili-Pala and Grand Architect to win through use of Staff of Domination or Profane Command. Alternatively we can take a midrange route with Myr and Tezzerret. And Our sideboard is stacked with hate cards that buy us enough time to combo off.

The list is still in early testing, but it's been primarily tested against the most recent Death's Shadow list. Currently it's performing at 40%-45% in the matchup.

Because you didn't cover it in your description, I'll mention it here: You can use Staff of Domination and Grand Architect alone to draw you're whole deck, or enough to find your win-con. No Pili-Pala needed for that part. If you're okay with the increased budget, you should totally throw in extra staffs. Also, if you're only going with one win-con(besides the beatdown route) you may want to add more counterspells as well. I would almost say take out the beatdown, and focus on getting your combos.

I don't see how you do the above mentioned combo with architect and staff. Architect only produces 2 mana, untapping a creature costs three, untapping staff costs one, and drawing a card costs 5..

You would run out of mana way before you draw anything, unless I am missing something.

My mistake, sorry, I thought Grandmaster's ability targeted blue permanents, and if you turned the staff blue, it would be grand! But alas the ability is creature specific, and the staff surely is not a creature. Feel free to ignore my delusional ramblings!
