You need some source of fast-mana that can net you into , because having LoTV down turn 0 is key to winning on turn 1.

The next key piece is to have Helm of Obedience come down, resolve the ability with as the cost, and tap.

The fun part is that when Helm's ability goes to resolve, no cards will ever technically hit the graveyard.. so..

..you mill out your opponent and they go for OTD (on the draw) and lose to having no draw.

This works assuming you're not up against a free cast counterspell.

Squee_Spirit_Guide when you said Mirror Magus, I guess you took me for a fool. ;) I knew what you were gonna be up to! Best way to prevent it? Have more than six copies of something available that say it doesn't

I still really appreciate your build and can think of a way to make it a turn 1 win... can you? (Hint: it does not involve the Magus but you have a shell in place that needs Demonic Consultation and another Ancient Artifact!)

I'll just start with the idea that the reason Elves and Vampires can win in cEDH is because they tend to grow exponentially, quickly spiraling out of control; Elves through mana dork sizing-up, and Vampires through sacrifice and mana doubling strategies.

Rogues don't really have the potential to grow at this same rate, and from the looks of it this deck will struggle to deal with three other well-refined decks at the table. This isn't a criticism of your deck, obviously, but more a general warning of how it will function at a cEDH table.

That being said, Rogues may not have exponential growth tied to them, but they do have a unique strategy that you could utilize to a greater extent. This would likely require a reworking of your current strategy, and a new commander at the helm.

Since Dimir and Rogues in general do not have ready access to good ramp, I would highly suggest either enhancing your control shell or making Sygg, River Cutthroat your commander. Sygg gives you access to card draw and synergy with your unblockable rogues (though I would suggest taking Blighted Agent out in general, since it doesn't deal traditional damage and doesn't cause your opponents to lose life), plus it is more mana-efficient and allows for a better tempo. By turn 4 or 5 you really should be developing if not completing your win-state in cEDH. Bident of Thassa would make a good t3-4 drop in preparation for a finishing blow on turn 5 (likely would be accomplished through "death by a thousand cuts").

You could also lean into the infinite combo route. I noticed for instance that you're running Tainted Pact and Thassa's Oracle. I might suggest adding Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and Demonic Consultation as well to streamline this combo.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Reinforced Ronin is good for helping with metalcraft too, good rec! I might keep Zurgo Bellstriker in too for a density of 1 drops.

Containment Construct also good for metalcraft and it's a 2/2 with card advantage so yeah another perfect rec for this deck.

Valakut Awakening  Flip I took out a while ago because too often it just is 3 mana draw a card. so its a low impact spell or a tapped land. It's better for combo or control decks.

Efreet Flamepainter Maybe one day if there gets to be more instants and sorceries but now I don't think theres enough spell density at 9.

Deflecting Swat is good when I activate Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner's ability discarding my hand then somebody casts removal before my 2 power guys can deal damage.

Smuggler's Copter has been in there because if all opponents have blockers it's a way to fly over for damage and card advantage. I Think you are right tho and it's low impact compared to some other recs.

Possibility Storm the angle is that it will prevent just about any combo from being cast. Additionaly I can be pretty sure that when I cast a 2 power creature I will get a 2 power creature while my opponents playing combo and control sit with most of their hand dead. My assault combo can actually be assembled piece by piece during a Possibility Storm whereas most combos involving instants and sorceries such as the dreaded Tainted Pact, Demonic Consultation, Natural Order or Brain Freeze cannot play around the chaos.

Dolmen Gate is useful when opponents have too many blockers. In my current meta however the "creature power 2 or less can't be blocked" ability on Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner is enough to make sure key creatures can attack while not dying to blockers.

Harmonic Prodigy and Savage Beating... good points. plus Harmonic Prodigy adds triggers to Immolation Shaman, Prophetic Flamespeaker and Seasoned Pyromancer...

Hey man, got a few suggestions for you. If you want to bring this to cEDH level you'll probably want to add Thassa's Oracle and Demonic Consultation/Tainted Pact and every low cost tutor so you can close the game out within the first 4 turns. You'll also want more fast mana like Chrome Mox, Mox Diamond, and of course Mana Crypt. I would add more low cost counter magic like Swan Song. Might also try Necropotence to draw into your win early if you don't have a tutor.

So I know you dislike this but I would definitely add Thassa's Oracle + Demonic Consultation or Tainted Pact. They are wincons that can just steal games after your opponents have used their resources trying to stop someone else doing the same thing. Demonic/Tainted can also help you find a piece to your combo if youre just missing one thing.

Another thing would be Cultivator Colossus + a bounce land such as Dimir Aqueduct. If lotus cobra is on the field its not techincally infinite mana but it will let you draw your entire deck + the cobra mana will let you play your combo pieces or simply draw your deck into thassas.

Intellect Devourer is also a huge disruption card that will generate tons of advantage for yourself especially if you can flicker/bounce it.

Thassa's Oracle and Demonic Consultation / Tainted Pact are rough Powerhouses that are specifically made to slip through Stax due to their efficient cost and are relatively easy to assemble... Sadly the speed of these can be vastly greater than ours at times.

Good options vs this sort of gameplan if it's prevalent :
