- Trinket Mage target. Works well with skullclamp.
- Voltaic Key / Voltaic Servant shenanigans. Possibly with Steel Overseer. I know Animation Module saw a tiny amount of play a little while ago. This seems a bit more consistent, but is worse against stony effects.
- Opposes planeswalkers. Can even help with board stalls (flying / 4/4s).
- Ramps Tolarian Academy
- Chump blockers. Constant food for Ravager (given non-workshop, non-tomb mana is available).
- Mental Misstep
- Stony Silence effects
- Paradoxical specifies nontokens.
- Mana intensive.
