One of my pet decks is my Lavinia of the Tenth flicker deck. I love flickering stuff for value and oppression.
There’s also the option of Glorious Protector infinite mana combo.
With any of these active, Brain Freeze wins, so do Aetherflux Reservoir and Sentinel Tower . For infinite mana, Capsize or Blue Sun's Zenith will make people scoop/lose. For infinite flicker combos, Venser, Shaper Savant bounces all opposing permanents and will make people scoop.
Lavinia flicker is my deck, though a bit out of date, might give you some good ideas.

Hi :D thanks for the upvote and the sweet comment, friend.
Cavern of Souls is a very interesting include! For me, every Orvar cast after the first two or so games with my playgroup has been a sweaty experience. It's too easy to deny this deck it's main engine. What makes the include more interesting is Tolaria West being able to tutor it up, and the possibility of cloning it and naming another creature type like drake or faerie.
I'm not sure if the include changes much in regards to High Tide . With every land untapper except Palinchron , in combination with High Tide , you can get a mana positive loop with just two or three islands on the board. However, I haven't made much use of High Tide so far. It has felt more like a backup plan in the deck in my experience.

Since you've added Ghostly Flicker with Eternal Witness , have you thought about adding Peregrine Drake or Palinchron ? You don't need Palinchron (though there is a line with enough creatures and Cradle for infinite mana plus USZ) but with either you can play the land untapper + flicker and e-wit. Once you have infinite mana, you can just bounce a land instead to draw your library and then USZ your opponents. It's a good combo to get you to infinite turns, but also provides a backup in case you lose access to Cyclonic Rift .

LuckDragon I thank you very much for your input! I was not aware of a few of these cards and I very much value your suggestions. though I should say I was aware of Palinchron and Treachery , but Those are a bit out of range for me.

Other cards you might consider: - High Tide . Why are you not running High Tide? It makes going off with Orvar super easy, and it's tutorable with Spellseeker . Casting it multiple times by recurring it with Archaeomancer or Mystic Sanctuary is great. - Dizzy Spell . Can be used defensively and to trigger Orvar, but it also tutors for most of the repeatable spells ( Clockspinning , etc.). - Sudden Substitution . "Nice Expropriate you've got there. Why don't we trade? You get this Spellseeker I've already used, and I'll get your extra turns. And a new Spellseeker. No, you don't get to respond." - Merchant Scroll . Tutor all the instants. - Spark Double . Lets you have any number of Orvars. Targeting one Island and getting eight is rather nice. - Glimpse the Cosmos . Dig six cards deep for at most . - Confounding Conundrum . Replaces itself and slows down the opposing ramp decks, getting more punishing with every copy. Eventually acts as a way to draw your deck. (Generate infinite mana, then copy it decksize times.)
More spendy suggestions: - Sakashima of a Thousand Faces . Like the original, can enter without becoming a copy, meaning you can target him and make a token version—which can enter as a copy of something. Also lets you have any number of Orvars. - Treachery . Goes infinite in the same way as Peregrine Drake , while also providing value without Orvar or a repeatable target source. - Palinchron . Goes infinite in the same way as Peregrine Drake, and can even go infinite without Orvar, provided you have something like ...

I_Want_To_PlayAllTheDecks: I had been considering putting together a Tazri deck for a while prior to this thread (I have played her in the past but have since pulled the deck apart). I have been looking into a better balanced list here: Tazri which is far from done, but might give you some ideas. I am running Palinchron which allows for some additional combo lines above Great Whale (since it combos with Bramble Sovereign ) however if Palinchron is outside your budget then that's understandable.

Cloudstone Curio is amazing with morph creatures.
Walking Ballista is your best finisher here. Especially if you run Ancestral Statue as the above poster recommended. If you add these 2 cards, also add Weird Harvest to tutor the combo up. Shrieking Drake is another option that's a bit fairer than Statue if you're avoiding infinite combos.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid
