I spend A lot of time on here.. Really too much. I don't have much else to do so MTG is a kind of obsession of mine. Been playing off and on since about 8th edition. I play EDH almost exclusively now. I've always been a combo player. It is just so satisfying to get a couple cards to work together to kill everyone at the table. However I also like it when everyone else gets to have fun so I tend to choose slower combos or combo decks that require a certain level of setup. It took a long time but I found my all time favorite decks, Divine Decree and Should I Pretend This Or That?. These reflect my preferred way of playing pretty well.

I know you don't want black but the first thing I have to suggest is Mairsil, the Pretender he doesn't have any activated abilities himself but play him once and he becomes an AEtherling . Then just keep paying and he gets more and more abilities from more and more things. He doesn't really have too many of the normal staples either or at least not the way I've built. Sol ring of course and some other mana things but my Should I Pretend This Or That? is fairly unique.

There are some other commanders that include black that fit the activated ability thing really well but I'll restrain myself... Marath, Will of the Wild is crazy powerful. Zacama, Primal Calamity leads to some great shenanigans though he is a little slow to get there. Phelddagrif is all huggy but fits in with the no black activated abilities thing.

Not sure if you are interested in walkers but Estrid, the Masked and the other walkers that can be commanders do use activated abilities... You should take a peak at them here

the competitive meter means nothing. I had this deck that is 100% competitive... If you can't tell by looking at it the deck had its moments but overall sucked. I wasn't even looking for it to be competitive, just for it to play...

If you are in a competitive environment or a lifegain deck run talismans.

If it is a more casual game where you might tap them 10+ times throughout most games I would definitely lean towards the signets.

If you can run both then run both.
