Hardly feasible imho... this is either gonna be a major pain to make, if you want it to be good, or it's gonna be a lot of fun to make and unplayable.
If you really, really wanna do it, find 2-3 other committed people and plan distribution of assignements with them, which then are given to the community where everyone can submit something for a specific subset of cards.
Find a theme and then make some decisions with the core people. Plane, theme, design skeleton, maybe even the keywords and also find out what you don't want.
After that, there could be a weekly post asking for let's say "a cycle of coloured artifacts with keyword xyz". Next week you'll ask for common creature 1-drops with another keyword... etc

I assume this is more of a design/R&D question, rather than a rules question. There are some articles out there that try to answer this question. But there is no exact answer, due to power lvl pendulum swings and Standard environment context. There is no in-game conversion rate. I believe the general rule of thumb is one colored mana ~=~ 1,5 generic mana. Then they round up or down depending on context

Running a similar deck and really like your version! +1
May I suggest running Forbidden Friendship over Dragon Fodder? You don't have a tribal Goblin theme and in that case FF is strictly better imho.

I thought at least 'Music: the loungening' might be subtle enough, but then again that's probably more of a name for an album.
Because I like the 'lounge' pun here's 2 more:
'Postmortem Lounge' Postmortem Lunge
'Lounge into Darkness' Plunge into Darkness
Sadly not as iconic as I'd like them to be
It's ok if you don't like those either, but they're really fun to come up with xD

Balaam__ this was mainly a thought experiment. The deck is a little weird as in it requires a certain amount/number of things to function the way I want it to, therefore, Arcane Adaptation simply doesn't fit as there's no real room to put it without taking out something substantial. As soon as I get back to brewing this more, Scheming Symmetry is my favorite candidate for inclusion atm. Will update at some point, but have no cognitive ressources to invest right now

Magic: The Loungening
Music: The Loungening
Preferably instead of loungening there would be a similar word starting with 'G' , but I couldn't come up with one

I'd really suggest to make a deck with as many 4-of's as possible, and mostly basic lands to reduce overall complexity. The opponent's deck should be built with the same principle in mind

The only thing I want to stress again is that you'll have to actually pick between BBE ant the Viashnos, because they're cmc3 and will mess up your cascades... can't do a 2-2 split

Yupp, you can cascade into another cascade spell and trigger its cascade... hence the name 'cascade' ;)

Bloodbraid Elf might be worth adding over the Viashno Sandsprinters, but other than that, nice budget build!

Blue has some 'counter target triggered ability' cards, but other than that, it's getting quite thin on those effects

Hi Femme, thanks for the update!
Do you happen to know if MSE has been discontinued? I tried to find recent stuff like energy or some frames, but their site looks dated/abandoned. Am I looking in the wrong place? Just asking because you specifically mention it here.

I think MaRo actually just dodged the question instead of confirming the 5yr window. "It's on the short list", one of his most used generic go-to answers just means it's one of many planes to possibly visit, but that info was already out there. He said numerous times that this short list is quite long.
Doesn't mean it's not gonna happen within 5 years but I wouldn't get my hopes up based on that answer alone

You can think of the effects being applied in a certain order. Malignus' stats are a variable and set to half a life total all the time, but always end up being a distinct number.
Then you cast Punch, which checks for that exact number, even if that number on malignus changes with punch on the stack.
While punch resolves, the otherwise dormant effect on Obosh kicks in. It is a replacement effect (that does not trigger or go on the stack, notice the 'if' being the marker for those kind of effects) that overrides the # of damage, while punch is resolving.
