@kat Why not try Paradox Engine? Perhaps with a bit of Enchantress tech like Words of Wind you can redrop a Mox for an untap of your other artifacts? It would lend itself to a mana shell more artifact based including Mox Opal and probably Ruby and Jet as well. It's expensive but perhaps lends itself to a more Workshop-y build or something with sol lands
If you want to go more prison-y Frozen Aether along with Tabernacle accomplish what you're doing with the Sovereigns are are probably less prone to removal game 1.
@wfain I just think Outcome requires a low avg CMC whereas Engine just wants mana rocks or dorks and couldn't care less about CMC after it's out.
My original feeling was to turn the deck into a more Enchantress-Stasis hybrid but I didn't like any of my brainstormed versions. I put together a list using Paradox Engine in modern that plays a la High Tide which is where I thought of it for Stasis as with Moxen it's pretty damn good.
@5space The Gitaxian Probe ban totally screwed the deck, but Mishra's Bauble or perhaps even Manamorphose might be a serviceable alternative. Here's the original list. Never really tuned it because I moved and stopped playing paper modern and never built it out on MTGO. The deck runs two different mana engines in Grand Architect/Pili-Pala and Magus of the Candelabra/Vernal Bloom. You'll oftentimes Remand your own excess spells for a card draw and Paradox Engine trigger. Consistent on turn 5 in solitaire, but I had a few turn 3 combos and plenty of turn 4s. I consider myself good at trying to figure a basic deck premise out, but I know for sure that I'm not the best at optimizing a list...so take this with a grain of sand.
3x Blue Sun's Zenith
3x Mystical Teachings
3x Summoner's Pact
4x Utopia Sprawl
3x Vernal Bloom
4x Breeding Pool
4x Misty Rainforest
2x Lightning Greaves
3x Paradox Engine
3x Grand Architect
4x Magus of the Candelabra
4x Gitaxian Probe
4x Serum Visions
I would like some suggestions on replacements for the Tempest Drake which are 2cmc.
I believe Voltaic Servant is great. It has pseudo vigilance, but can also make you pay for Stasis forever if you have a blue Mox or Seat of the Synod while also allowing infinite turns with Time Vault.
