Hmm well if its not for you that quite alright. On second thought my Leo engine deck probably is more appropriate to use as an example since it has the same problems as Damia. Either way once your list is updated let me know and ill give you some feedback

Etherium sculptor is safer but far less explosive than helm. I would probably choose one or the other as engine produces tons of colorless and outside of combo turns both are just ok. Getting something that taps for value is usually better. Getting the required number of spells is easily achieved in non infinite situations. Its so much easier than traditional storm lists. Also it is not too difficult to assemble the voltaic key+top+engine combo which will give you like 100+ casts. Not all the cantrips are necessary if you are going more control. The cards that sustain engine are wheels, ad nauseam, and tutor chains. Demonic tutor for regrowth returning demonic tutor grabbing intuition grabbing 3 wheels etc. Cantrips are very good but you could get by with less if you want more interaction.

Dramatic scepter is the redundancy. The decks primary win condition is Aetherflux Reservoir of a high number of spells that is EASILY achieved with Paradox Engine. Dramatic scepter using codex shredder to deck everyone then bringing back a wheel to kill the table is the backup. One very good card that will likely be needed with damia as the general is Kiora's Follower in place of helm of awakening. It will draw your entire deck with Engine, Top, and 1 mana worth of rocks/dorks. Voltaic key will do it with just 2 mana.

I dont see any reason why it would not. Load it full of rituals rocks and dorks. Literally use the shell of one of my decks and cater like 10 cards to your strategy. It could be really good. Power out Damia if you run out of fuel. Get a fresh 7. This prototype is the turn 2 kill deck I am working on. I think it would adapt well

Now that Paradox Engine is here to stay. What is your opinion about returning Reki, the History of Kamigawa to my build? With Paradox down on the board, you could be drawing a ton of cards which you most likely couldn't tutor for?

Eidolon of Blossoms is the bomb diggity. It works with Reveillark inside of combo but outside of combo it's good card advantage. You have enough enchantments to get some good value from it and with Gift of Immortality on Saffi or even just Sakura-Tribe Elder, you start drawing a lot of cards very quickly.

joriiiii12345: Yeah, it's a bit of a bummer it doesn't work with either of the two win conditions. I think though even if I did run a few etb trigger cards (like Altar of the Brood) my concern would be that Retainers is a bit too narrow scope.
I did used to run a few persist combos in the deck, however I did ultimately cut them in favour of recursion only combo. While the added effects were ok, none of the big three (Woodfall Primus, Kitchen Finks and Twilight Shepherd) either did either did enough (Primus/finks) or were cheap enough (Shepherd) to warrant staying in the deck. especially when the combo ran no redundancy and didn't integrate with the primary combo package of the deck.
I'm not really a big fan of "addon" combos in the deck. Part of the reason I don't run Altar of the Brood. While it's nice, you already need a sac combo up and running and at that point, You should be a position where you're winning the game and don't need it. I would much rather a tutor or raw card advantage to help me dig for my combo. And as you said, there are barely any of those effects in GW and they're not worth running.

Wee_Dragonaut: I see so many Kruphix decks where people think his ability ramps (he doesn't, It's just mana storage at a rate of 1-1). Honestly he just seems so boring to me. Why not go with Prime Speaker Zegana and draw all the cards for all that gas?

Resilience comes through deckbuilding. And you'll have lots in G/X. Do you have a preferred win condition or play style? Do you like playing beat down? Voltron? Combo? Answers to these kind of questions will help you determine what commander might be good for you. I could recommend Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, but if you don't like playing stax then he's not the commander for you. The more info you can give us, the more we can help.

I have to say I actually kind of like them. I think that bar was set really high with the Kaladesh Inventions, but I'm actually happy to see WotC trying something a bit more bold and different. While I think there's something left to be desired on some of the elements, overall I'd say good on them. you don't gain anything unless your risk something. And even if the resik doesn't pan out, you learn.
March 29, 2017 2:06 a.m.
Do you have a preferred playstyle (or one you're aiming for with the deck)? this will seriously help in determining a commander.

Dark Ritual is awesome, let's you get a turn 1 Yahenni. Also Forbidden Orchard could be fun in that you can forcefeed your opponents creatures to sacrifice if they don't have any. And you seem to have enough ways to plow through tokens.

Since you already have Ashnod's Altar in the deck, I would recommend adding Nim Deathmantle as well. Not only does it combo with Murderous Redcap and Altar, but it also gives a good buff to Tana, making her both easier to connect with as well as deal more damage (for more tokens).
March 27, 2017 5:34 p.m.
Yeah, that was a joke. Sorry if it went down the wrong way.
While I can leave some comments on the deck page specifically, I would also make the observation that with that many cards, you're probably better off just purging the list and then starting from scratch. I think on the whole its going to be a much less painful process and you'll get the list down to ~120ish cards a,lot more quickly. At that point making cuts will be much easier.
March 27, 2017 5:06 p.m.
Also, y u no Palinchron? You get lots of palinchron tokens with Riku.

It depends on the deck as well. Users have the ability to ignore suggestions (via a checkbox in the deck edit section) that turns off the ability for people to suggest cards.
You may have just come across a few decks where this was the case.

If you have a playgroup where there are multiple players looking to get into a new format, I would highly recommend Canadian Highlander. It's 100 card singleton which means that it's relatively easy to get into from a resourcing perspective.
March 27, 2017 1:28 a.m.
I think you could easily cut Memnarch, Take Possession, March of the Machines, Angel's Grace, Liquimetal Coating, Caltrops, Blinkmoth Urn and Mindslaver and the deck wouldn't miss them. That's a start at least.
Also, running 1 counter spell seems silly. I'd say either cut it or add more.
March 26, 2017 5:39 p.m.
I was tossing up between running Windfall and Necropotence actually. Ultimately I would love a Timetwister but I can't afford one in real life. I thought necro was overall the better fit though as the blue wheels depend on your opponents' hand size, plus discarding combo pieces seems bad. But I'm open to evidence to the contrary.

I'm surprised you're not running High Market so you can flip Avacyn on command. Also, Slayers' Stronghold is really good if Yu just want to get Avacyn down and turn her or another creature sideways immediately.I've always been a big fan of Fireshrieker personally.
The list looks good though.
March 25, 2017 2:18 a.m.
Sorry about that, I've now re-enabled it.
I don't think I have enough sac lands for Loam. PlusCrucible of Worlds fills that slot.
March 25, 2017 2:04 a.m.
budlaorf: Check the omissions section of the primer. There's a write up about why it's not run.
