Traverse the Outlands is a nice suggestion; searching out every single basic from my library in one fell swoop, even if I don't get 100% value out of Arixmethes' 12 power, seems like big game. I will consider it.

I'm going as creatureless as I can with this build, so Baral and the Sphinx will probably stay on the sidelines. (Consecrated Sphinx paints such an enormous target on my forehead that it's probably not worth it, at least not in my meta.) Mirrorpool seems like a good alternative to Vesuva, though, so I might see if I can dig it up...

It's already in the decklist above, but I appreciate the comment and the upvote!

In case you're interested, here's my Arixmethes build. I went in a different direction than you, obviously, but maybe it'll give you a couple of ideas: Can You Tell Me How to Get to Arixmethes Street?

The way it's worded, it's not a trigger. If the wording were different ("When Arixmethes enters the battlefield, put five slumber counters on it"), then you would be correct that Torpor Orb would stop it. The word "when" in my example makes all the difference! Speaking as a fellow Arixmethes brewer, I agree it's too bad that the Torpor Orb interaction doesn't work, but them's the breaks!

Torpor Orb is a fine card to have in a deck, but you shouldn't play it just to keep Arixmethes from entering play with slumber counters. His text box is worded in a way that the adding of slumber counters isn't a trigger. Just FYI!
