I see you're certainly doing your best to get Leovold, Emissary of Trest banned, lol. Paradox Engine speaks for itself (god almighty, that card is crazy).

If Leovold ever goes the way of Braids/Griselbrand, you'll be the cause :D

I'll direct the rampaging hordes to your userpage so they can thank you in person tips hat

On another note, I've been thinking of pulling together a task force of deckbuilders with unusual abilities...

Can I PM you? I have an idea I want to bounce off of you.

I saw several people on a Facebook MtG group discussing your "Did I break your concentration?" list as "That one REALLY scary Tier 1 Leovold list" - it's so notorious that people don't even have to refer to it by name anymore, LMFAO.

Ah good old Walt :-) Actually I was a little off. You produce infinite COLORED mana with an eldrazi, which is much better. Just add a ton of cantripping creatures and drink salty tears until full. Its so much better than aluren because it doesnt benefit your opponents and you can tutor for the combo now

Your understanding of the combo is essentially correct but its hard to explain. For simplicity sake you tap Sensei's Divining Top and in response you untap it with an instant or kiora's follower/voltaic key and tap it again. Once it resolves you will draw two cards, one of which will be top. With engine in play you cast it again and trigger engine again. Then you can repeat the process indefinitely to draw your deck.

I think your concern about color fixing is missplaced. With mana dorks and mana rocks you will have plenty of color fixing and since rocks are colorless you will have far fewer games without the colors you need by going all in on engine. I have been testing budget versions of my deck ($700 & $850) and even with a cheap mana base the deck runs very smoothly and wins by turn 4 most games (in a vacuum).

The dorks you want are ones that are capable of tapping for blue/black. I don't include any of the 2cc mana dorks except bloom tender/kiora's follower. Elves of deep shadow are really good.

If you want your deck to take the leap from competicasual to cEDH. From winning a fair share of games in your playgroup to completely destroying your friends confidence (I dont reccommend this unless your playgroup can psychologically handle getting ruined game after game regardless of what they do because thier answers are always a turn or two too slow) you should cut 9 lands (yes 9 lands) and replace them with cheap tutors and card advantage spells. Add every good 1-2 mana cantrips and every good wheel. You also want every good 0-1 cc rock. Then add ad nauseam and necropotence and get your avg cc below 1.7 You could do this gradually and slowly improve the deck design to make your playgroup adjust by being just a little ahead of them. It would be better than doing it all at once, but its your call.

I have come to learn that Cloud of Faeries is ridiculous with Cloudstone Curio. You can go infinite with this any other creature that has only one colored mana in its color identity. With an eldrazi you go infinite colorless mana. Its also just a great early game card to get things rolling with animar

Copy Artifact is a great card. I would also strongly suggest Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Progress. Without adequate ramp, esper will get overrun by decks with green. Board wipes only do so much to mitigate that.

For Timetwister you could do Time Spiral or Day's Undoing.

For Imperial Seal we have Lim-Dul's Vault or Worldly Tutor.

Another good option that checks both boxes is Bring to Light

February 25, 2017 10:30 p.m.

What I meant say grapeshot is better than ballista as a removal spell. Reality shift is the best removal spell

February 25, 2017 4:03 p.m.

Probably Candelabra of Tawnos since it is just color fixing or Urza's Bauble/Everflowing Chalice since they are fairly low impact.

Of the three grapeshot is a better removal spell outside the finisher role but ballista can be a free untap and is better off ad naus. Reality shift is too dependent on opponents having a creature unless you keep candelabra and untap the forbidden orchard you put into play with Thrasios' ability

February 25, 2017 3:53 p.m.

I mean maybe Gush is better than I am giving it credit. On an engine turn it is potentially a free untap that draws two cards, which is pretty amazing. It sucks hittingnit with ad naus, but it also potentially lets us draw into a top deck tutor for free which cannot be ignored. Late engine turn getting to 5 shouldnt be that hard. Ill test it myself and let you know what I think.

February 25, 2017 3:39 p.m.

I am a bit skeptical about gush to be honest as it felt pretty bad to me outside a pile when I had a ton of basics, but I agree lands are fairly useless once engine is in play. I am happy its working out for you, but I got to find some gushless piles to work with for my own list. Your deck looks real good btw

February 25, 2017 3:13 p.m.

How often is gush a dead card for you? Can you reliably get to four islands with this list?

February 25, 2017 1:59 p.m.

Frank_Glascock: Its the cEDH reddit tourney and its ongoing. I am not the pilot actually. I was watching BarbeChenue playing an adjusted version of my list and he (?) won last night in epic fashion. Basically his card choices and his theft of Linvala, Keeper of Silence with grasp bought him the time needed to fight through multiple stax pieces to win the game. That was merely one of many huge plays and aside from one gaffe early :-), his performance was a thing of beauty. After seeing his card choices in action I am planning on adjusting the list accordingly.

Carpet is great. I didnt use it because it doesnt tap for value, but linvala and null rod are things so a more varied ramp package is nice.

I hear you Daedalus19876, but as Dunadain pointed out the main phase ad nauseam is a fragile thing. It often doesn't work if your cc is in the 1.7s. Also counterspells are somewhat meh for this build it wasnt a super hard cut.

February 25, 2017 2:58 a.m.

Its slighty more focused so yes. FOW is great but being a 5 mana spell makes it not worth it.

So after seeing the deck in the tourney I am dropping llanowar elves for bloom tender and simic signet for carpet of flowers, urborg tomb of yawgmoth, for tarnished citadel and urza's bauble for everflowing chalice

EnderPlaysCompetitiveMTG that's awesome man I'm glad to hear it. Intervention has been suggested and its very good. My only issue with it is that it doesn't replace itself and engine is extraordinarily card hungry.

February 24, 2017 8:39 a.m.

Fair enough lol. It took me a while to get over that as well. Then I played demonic consultation. Granted I always had wheels to get back the lost card advantage so perhaps its not a perfect fit for your deck.

February 23, 2017 4:53 p.m.

I've only ever used it in circumstances where I have tried to maximize its value. If you are asking the question of how few then I think there are better cards to include. I have never used less than 25 tap effects with engine. Megalomania has used it as a value card in his build so he may be able to provide a better answer than me

February 23, 2017 3:59 p.m.

Omg that card would be so good if it were 3 or less. Either way its a great addition to many of my decks.

February 23, 2017 12:18 p.m.

I would strongly suggest Dark Deal Geth's Grimoire, Waste Not and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip. Why not benefit freatly from your opponents misery :-)

February 23, 2017 7:33 a.m.

I wouldn't say strictly better, in fact I would say here its strictly worse since it ONLY grabs 3cc artifacts :-) I love ballista but with Breya being a win condition on her own its of limited use tbh

February 23, 2017 4:32 a.m.

Ah yes! Sandstone oracle and old kozilek are what you want.
