Paradox Haze and the new Sphinx aren't in here? Interesting choice of cards to not add.

Double upkeeps and clones to copy double upkeeps why not?

Baron_Pretzels Hey, thanks for your interest.

Double upkeeps does sound nice, yes, but there are no other upkeep triggers in the deck at all and Paradox Haze will do nothing if we don't have Ravos out or if we haven't started milling ourselves yet. In this specific case, I believe that Sakashima the Impostor or Sakashima of a Thousand Faces would be far more versatile options because we could use them to clone any other creature on top of being able to make a second Ravos.

Peligrad I mean, yes and no. Are your games going to be significantly longer than about 12 turns? Do you have extra turn spells? Can you tutor it out with Zur? If you're running Zur, are you also running Paradox Haze to make it even better? Does your playgroup rely on combat damage to finish games? Is your playgroup filled with relatively unskilled players who play EDH because they can have fun there without being forced to do the homework needed to be good in every other format?

If the answer to 1 or more of those is yes, then Arena is a highly considerable card.

If, on the other hand, you are trying to be as powerful as possible, then Arena is horrible and if you should replace it with Necropotence.

Or, on a third hand, if you are trying to be tuned but not spend seven thousand dollars, you should probably use Night's Whisper.

EDH is a casual format, explaining why it's seen so often. Which isn't bad -- I assume most people playing EDH want to play it not to win and instead to play a game with their friends. But for those who want to play more competitively, Arena will get cut too often.

Oh Johnsonsonsonsonson, let me tell you about the Enduring Ideal Gambit.

So when I cast enduring ideal, the first thing I grab is Paradox Haze of course. Now unless my opponents destroy paradox haze, I can now trigger Enduring Ideal twice on my turn. So, I typically grab Assemble the Legion with the first trigger and Copy Enchantment with the second trigger and have Copy Enchantment copy Paradox Haze, I now have three upkeeps on my turns which means I can now search for 3 enchantments.

So next I will usually grab Sanctum of All for trigger one, then I will grab Honden of Infinite Rage for the second upkeep trigger (plus Sanctum of all will now trigger twice this turn). For the final trigger I will grab Estrid's Invocation copying Paradox Haze, I now get 4 upkeeps a turn.

Here we go, now on the next turn you can most likely get every single shrine into play with a bunch of upkeeps, and additionally grab tons of other options like Debtors' Knell for creatures or Solitary Confinement for protection. There's also one more enchantment you can tutor to copy paradox haze and that is Mirrormade.

Man, Enduring Ideal is so so broken.

Man, that's a sick card that I've never heard of.

Would be pretty epic with Sphinx of the Second Sun and/or Paradox Haze

Hey, Sphinx of the Second Sun is basically another Paradox Haze.

Nice deck btw.

Interesting card! Good find! I wonder if it could be used in a Jhoira of the Ghitu deck, for an extra upkeep--kinda like an extra Paradox Haze
