Leyline of the Void
If Leyline of the Void is in your opening hand, you may begin the game with it on the battlefield.
If a card would be put into an opponent's graveyard from anywhere, exile it instead.

Leyline of the Void Discussion
1 week ago
Why is Mind Twist banned in Legacy? Oh right. Because making your opponent discard multiple cards on the first turn is almost a win on its own. And then you throw in a body. Strikes me as being on par with Eye of Ugin for a couple Mimics into three Thought-Knot Seers coming in on turn 2. I would say it’s a bit inconsistent but I would have said the same about crazy Eye of Ugin Eldrazi starts. This is just explosive disruption in place of explosive aggression. But it’s gonna get whacked. Then again, WotC may protect their new cardboard by banning around it like Hogaak. Or they may go do the throat like they did with Tibalt's Trickery . But if we start seeing maindeck Leyline of Sanctity (outside of new Enchantress builds) to deal with Grief the same way we saw maindeck Leyline of the Void to combat Hogaak, then we’re definitely looking at a ban. I worry that if a ban is necessary, WotC will hit Rebirth (not a particularly old cardboard) as banning Ephemerate would not only keep the interaction alive but in its more consistent colors. Regardless, the vultures are circling and Grief is ripe.

If they exile your wincon, you're SOL. Have you considered adding a Leyline of the Void given you already run Helm of Obedience?
While I like scheming symmetry, it seems a bit asymmetrical in this build because they will almost always get their card prior to you unless you have Opposition Agent in hand. How has it played for you?
Also, how has insidious dreams been for you, as discard is additional cost to cast, one good counterspell and you're out of luck. I see you have defense grid and imp's mischief to combat blue (as well as cavern). Have you considered Boseiju, Who Shelters All , or is the colorless + tapped + lifeloss not warrant making 1/4th of your deck uncounterable?
A potential idea is Crucible of Worlds to go with your fetches and self discard (dark deal) and sacrifice (smokestack). I know it doesn't do much on it's own, and this is cEDH, but something to consider. It's constant artifact recursion with buried ruin as well.
Perhaps its just my experience but Temporal Extortion reads target player loses 20 life. Which is fine, but doesn't further your strategy all that mucch.
Since you mention contamination in your description a fair amount, have you considered adding it's cousin Infernal Darkness ? Do note that contamination shuts off your own coffers, lake, and nykthos, as well as opposing cradles and serra sanctums. Infernal darkness does not shut off large mana producers, is 1 more expensive, but it doesn't require a sacrificial upkeep cost. I understand you have Endrek and bitterblossom, but even with your consistent tutors, I am unsure how reliable that can be. Tutoring is a loss of tempo and in cEDH (not that I have much experience), spending a turn to tutor just for them to counter the card you tutored for feels bad. Adding consistency of contamination with infernal darkness can help slow the game down to your level. What do you think?

Raving Visionary: Feels kinda weird flavor for a Merfolk, but I'm guessing it's supposed to be a reference to the OG Looter
"Search the Premises": Meh. At least it triggers per creature and not just per attack on you.
"Sythis, Hand of the Harvest": It's surprising that we haven't gotten a general green-white enchantment commander until now; closest thing is Siona, Captain of the Pyleas . ( Daxoz would have probably been it if the OG experience commanders weren't locked into enemy pairs.)
Chitterspitter: Yeah no. I don't enjoy being the fun-hater for these kind of things, but along with Dermotaxi I feel that this is stepping things into the kind of silly territory that's more appropriate for silver border. Sacrifice in green feels kinda weird too, even if it's far from unheard of.
Dauthi Voidwalker: W-what? Even if it's not super hard to remove, a Leyline of the Void effect on legs that's usually unblockable at MV 2 is already pretty good. And on top of that, you can cast one of the things that gets exiled for free?! Yeah, just counterspell an ultimatum with this out and watch people cry. (At least timing restrictions still apply.)
Foundation Breaker: Nothing spectacular but it's a nice bread-and-butter effect for decks like Nikya of the Old Ways

Thanks arquistar. I haven't thought about Helm of Obedience for quite a while, at least not since Leyline of the Void found it's way on to the list. But I have also never experienced a Rest in Peace in Commander either. The real question is: what would it replace?
On the other hand, I had actually just replaced the Tormod I had with Blight Mound , because it being both cheaper & harder to remove..

Contamination was something I had for a while, but cut since I don’t always have a steady enough stream of creatures to always fuel it, and often times people will just have artifact mana to get the colors they need.
Syphon Mind is just too much mana for such a small effect IMO. It’s not bad, but it’s not something I’d make a cut for.
Blast Zone is just a tad too slow for my liking
Oubliette it’s solid, and definitely worth considering if your facing problem commanders that you just need to remove for a while. Outside removing problem commanders it’s not great here as we want our opponents’ best creatures in the graveyard to reanimate ourselves.

Love this decklist! Working on building it with some changes/concessions.
Wanted to get your thoughts on this, was thinking about replacing Temporal Mastery with either Nexus of Fate or Beacon of Tomorrows . You lose out the miracle potential, but it allows redundancy with the infinite turns line, since these effectively also achieve infinite turns with Mystical Tutor on the Scepter. Think it'd be worth it?
And if you do... do you prefer Nexus or Beacon? Beacon is a Sorcery that's 1 Mana more, and targets so weak to redirect effects. But Nexus shuffle clause is attached to going to gy, so Rest in Peace and Leyline of the Void negate it. I know Nexus probably better but it's also 6x the price.

Couldn't have put it better myself. Normally I would advocate a combination of two, but there really isn't any way to do this here. If you attempt to do combo and have mill as a backup plan, Duskmantle Guildmage is basically a dead card without Mindcrank .
Also, why do you have Tormod's Crypt mainboard and 3 Leyline of the Void s in the sb when they screw up your Jace's Phantasm ? I'd keep the grave hate in the sb and side out the phantasms then. Also you might want some discard/hand control like Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize if you go in a more control direction.
