Also, Painter's Servant is now Legal. If you have the Servant, I recommend Grindstone aswell for the infinite mill.

Your lack of proper wincon might net you a lot of hate at the table. You can Armageddon and Winter Orb all day, but if you don't have some method of breaking parity and killing the table, ultimately all you're doing is dragging out the game and not making much progress. Maybe that's your goal though.. to just make everyone suffer and regret playing the game, and if that's the case more power to you! Perhaps your friends deserve such a fate. :^) But I would recommend adding in some general wincons to actually end everyone's misery and let them know you came to win instead of just making them dread a 2 hour game where nobody wins lol.

Infinite mana combos like Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter and Grand Architect + Pili-Pala plus X cost targeted draw spells like Blue Sun's Zenith and Stroke of Genius make for either humorous yet fair ways of milling an opponent to death in one turn, or milling yourself with pieces like Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Laboratory Maniac, and Thassa's Oracle to just straight up win the game. If you wanted to push your budget there's also the dirty Grindstone + Painter's Servant combo to, again, mill people to death. Then, after all that, you'd want to add in artifact tutors to fetch your filthy combo pieces and close the game out before people begin to complain about your gloriously oppressive board state. Cards like Fabricate, Tezzeret the Seeker, and Whir of Invention would do nicely. You could also run Muddle the Mixture as a flex card that could either be used to keep your opponents from getting to use their toys, or to again fetch your combo pieces i.e. Isochron, Pili-Pala, Thassa's Oracle, Painter's Servant if you wanted, etc. I'd be more than happy to help optimize this deck in budget if you wanted. :^) Just let me know.

Color identity only matters in EDH deck construction or if an effect specifically references "color identity". In all other cases color is used, color is any colored mana in the casting cost plus any color indicators (Dryad Arbor) or characteristic defining abilities (Transguild Courier) that define a cards color. Color can also be modified by static effects from permanents such as on Painter's Servant or Mycosynth Lattice.

Grindstone + Painter's Servant inf mill, going infinite is lame but this combo kinda cool.

Thanks for the comments VampDemigod. My primary way to win is to combo off using the Mindcrank + Duskmantle Guildmage combo or the Painter's Servant + Grindstone \ Sphinx's Tutelage combo. Otherwise I can just make lazav copy a fat creature and equip some swords and go for Voltron win.

You could also go with Painter's Servant + Phyrexian Altar + Training Grounds. All three are decent outside of the combo, but together you get 2 faeries for the cost of 1 coloured mana (either blue or black) which you can then generate from the Altar by sacing one of the faeries.

You could run Painter's Servant and Grindstone with this deck because they're both under 2 cmc
