cool deck!
i really like low mana value, permanent cards that are removal in muldrotha. Seal of Removal, Nihil Spellbomb, Caustic Caterpillar are surprisingly good.
i like Mana Reflection but it is a bit greedy.
i also run Mindslaver as a finisher, not sure if you're into that.

Ew, so you're essentially trying to force your opponents to get faith counters? Wow. That's devious.

I instantly see some very good cards with Emrakul, the Promised End, Mindslaver, Worst Fears, and Sorin Markov :D

Make your opponents get like ten thousand faith counters by stacking the abilities endlessly, then pass their turn to you and you win the game.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius can turn Mindslaver into a creature, and when you sac it you can put it back on the field with Nim Deathmantle.

Effect is you bring back mind slaver, take the opponents turn, and then take your turn again. Rinse repeat for infinite mind slaver

Is this how this would work in EDH?

What about Mindslaver and Strionic Resonator?

Nephalia Smuggler gives you evasion, and what's more, if you use it on creatures you control but someone else owns, they stay on your side when they flicker back in.

Something like Lantern of Insight, Wizened Snitches, Dakra Mystic, Psychic Surgery, and Glasses of Urza are all great ways to get some intelligence on what is in the opponents' hands. The topdeck surveillance combos especially well with Sen, as you already know from Hinder. See something nice on their topdeck? Take control of them, force them to draw, and then play the card before they ever get access to it.

Also, Isperia the Inscrutable seems like it would fit in well...

Thank you for the suggestions, Temporal Extortion was one card I did think of briefly before but not also Worst Fears. Mindslaver is one I already happen to play in modern alongside Academy Ruins in fact :). I’ll add them to the maybe board and see if they can find a place. Just one issue is finding room, and while there’s a few cards some may see as obvious picks to cut, I wanted to have a few such as It That Betrays and Phyrexian Obliterator likely stay as most of my edh decks have a few ‘pet’ cards like that to make them a bit different than every other version out there kimosabe. Oh and I will for sure check out your list soon for possibly more ideas!

Not one people usually consider but fits in with your theme of steal stuff: Herald of Leshrac, Worst Fears, Mindslaver.

I love theft game play. If your looking for more inspiration check out Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (Sen Triplets)

Good luck out there.

Thanks. This has definitely been a pet deck of mine over the years.

Winter Orb is less useful in cEDH as those decks also tend to run less lands in favor of random mana rocks and mana dorks. It is still reasonably useful but it underperforms when compared to the rest of the stax effects the deck runs.

I actually cover why I think Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is significantly stronger than Kozilek, the Great Distortion in the (admittedly outdated) primer. I'll copy it here for convenience:

Kozilek, the Great Distortion: This is one I have had many arguments about and have even run as a commander for a while. His ability to counter spells is weirdly relevant, he does fun shenanigans with Silent Arbiter effects, and he can situationally draw you more card than the Butcher can. However, that is exactly his downfall. He situationally draws you more cards. Draw X where X = a number between 0 and 7 is not as good as draw 4. If the game goes long and you finally cast Kozilek with 7 dead cards already in hand, drawing 0 for 10 mana is unacceptable. This has cost me many games and forces the deck to run bad enablers such as discard outlets to ditch bad cards. Butcher will always draw you 4 cards, Distortion will not.

Additionally, Butcher goes wins on the spot with infinite mana and a sacrifice outlet whereas Distortion does not. Butcher in the command zone also means that any card in the library can be looped an arbitrary number of times (with infinite mana) permitting Mindslaver hard locks, arbitrary amount of permanent removal with Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger (sacrifice him, shuffle with Kozilek, draw him again, cast and repeat) and much more. He even provides other weird random benefits such as preventing you from decking out when playing against mill decks (or just one of the various cEDH decks that wins by milling you with Brain Freeze. Distortion is a very fun card, but objectively weaker as a commander. I even stopped playing him in the 99 and maybe 1 in every 30 games (typically when Drannith Magistrate is involved) do I ever even find myself missing him.

I forgot to mention, as for why I tried to make this cEDH power level, I personally enjoy cEDH and like to mess around with strange things that people don't typically see at that kind of power level. A lot of the most powerful decks in the format have no good answer to giant creatures and I find that entertaining. No one I play against cares about proxies so we all have a few max power level decks to play with and other stuff of varying power for playing in pods and stuff at random local gaming stores. Also, the deck has kind of just gotten stronger over time as a side effect of lower power level tables not ever wanting to play against it (but cEDH players always welcoming the challenge). Annihilator 4 is very rude and the deck has a lot of other rude things it can do (Mindslaver locks, exiling large portions of someone else's library with Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, etc.). I still have a Kozilek, the Great Distortion as a backup commander in case someone wants to play a lower power level game against it and have somewhat of a chance given how much harder it is to go infinite with the lesser Kozilek and how much less of a threat he is.
