A new engine

Commander (EDH) forum

I've been out of commander for a while and I just came back and started to build some new decks, I love merfolk and I've been building Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca only to find that Paradox Engine is banned....I want something similar but obviously legal I've been mulling over Intruder Alarm but I want better but I can't think of a card inbetween alarm and engine. Does a card exist?

Welcome back to the format! Intruder Alarm is 100% your best bet. Seedborn Muse + Leyline of Anticipation might be cool, but perhaps Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal may help you untap a lot too.

The Dramatic Scepter combo ( Dramatic Rescue imprinted on Isochron Scepter ) is the next best thing with alarm being the closest you'll get with a single card.

It’s not a totally-bananas OP rocker...but you could give this card Instill Energy from (old man voice) bAck In mY DAy that would give one creature a free untap each turn. Dramatic Reversal is a more recent (and larger scale) one-timer that I’d probably use.
