thom-le thanks mate! I'd still need to test and tune more because I haven't had much time for this deck recently. This deck isn't passive though, as you say in your deck description...all it does is trying to proactively control the game, there's very little reactive stuff here. It's an option to play more passively but as the commander acts only on your own turn it feels better to use that and try to put out enough game warping stuff that you don't have to worry about much until your next turn.

A possible way to make Sen Triplets stronger with cheap cards is to add stuff that lets people only play fewer spells per turn: Rule of Law , Arcane Laboratory , Eidolon of Rhetoric , Ethersworn Canonist . By doing so, you won't have people dumping their hand as fast and you will have 4 rather full hands to play with. Save instants for opponents turns and cast their cards on your turn.

Why do you prefer the grand architect package over Sage of Hours and Ezuri? All of the needed parts have summoning sickness, so you can't win in the same turn after Flash resolves. And you know, the individual parts aren't reall better than Ezuri and Sage imo.

On a side note, Burgeoning isn't that good overall.

And what do you need a Laboratory Maniac for? It's a dead card and if you can get a "draw your library" combo to fire, there are enough other options to win from there.

Otherwise it's probably nice on a low budget. I'd replace some land ramp with dorks though. Can't see Birds of Paradise yet for example

portalguyman Hulk is an ENABLER of the combo, just like pod and Buried Alive . You never want to use an enabler to get another enabler - the goal is to use an enabler to assemble what actually wins.

If you have a look a the description, what actually reduces people's life to 0 is either a loop with Kiki/Felidar (attack or direct lifeloss with Blood Artist ), a loop with Kiki/Karmic Guide/Seer (infinite Karmic Guide tokens with haste to attack or for lifeloss with blood artist), a loop with Karmic Guide/Felidar/Seer and Blood Artist as an outlet for lifeloss (that combination is only really a thing during hulk lines when Kiki got lost somewhere) or a loop with Leonin Relic-Warder , Animate Dead and Blood Artist . That's what you need to find and you can use different enablers to get there.

Besides, if you fetch up to 5 you already have the Kiki loop in play...why would you want to go up to 6 and 7 (and wait a turn to kill hulk again)? The dying Hulk would just fetch what is already there from the pod line up to 5. And if these pieces aren't in the library anymore, Hulk also won't be able to find them. And the pod line would be stuck before you even get to 4 or 5. Makes no sense, right? ;)

NoOneOfConsequence if that's what it does mostly in your experience, then it did a great job in slwoing people down A FUCKING LOT. People have two options when facing an early remora: slow down and not progress their gameplan while the remora player does OR ignore it and aggressively push for a win, hoping that the remora player can't capitalize enough on the cards they got (also because they might have too few mana). And the thing is, if just one player starts to race into the remora, everyone else has to follow or fall behind far too much.

And that for just one blue mana. It's either slowdown for opponents or carddraw, often both at the same time. Perfect.

Taigam prevents them from being countered ;)

In the Eye of Chaos is perfect for Taigam

Scapegoat you tap top, in response untap with voltaic key, tap top again, then let the two top activations resolve - you draw an unknown card and top as well. Then cast top, untap all mana rocks with engine, repeat. that way you draw as much of your deck as you want.

DeathByDiddle Circu has the most efficient scepter combo in the format and that means he has the potential of throwing out a very early kill. The commander doesn't provide card advantage but you can use his abilities and draw-limiting effects along with cheap mill rocks to create soft locks and to constantly filter the draws of yourself and others.

Here's an example build:
