I finally found the card I was looking for. It's out of Ixalan called :

Deeproot Champion.

It can actually see play in GAT decks that want more than 3 colors since it's for all non-creature spells.

Now that Yawgmoth's Bargain is unrestricted this deck needs a massive overhaul or a few slight tweaks. I'll update the original post with a modified build. Instead of adding 3 Blue sources we get x3 more Bargains. Definitely a fair trade on our part of the combo game.

You really want to abuse Welder in those Stacker list, so Triskelion keeps coming into play with 3 counters and so on. The equipment isn't mandatory but is a good way to manage the game. Whatever equipment manages the game the best is usually the way to go in Stax or Stacker decks.

The list are actually still good, but you gotta know how to do things like play with a Juggernaut or equipment really.

Helm is a route, but requires many sideboard slots dedicated to it and also maybe like Serum Powder. Serum Powder might rise in price and usage if people start needing mulligans in magic more often and more ways to find their combos. With new sets new combos emerge so serum powder is the perfect canidate for such a deck.

4 Leyline is to fight other Combo decks using Yawgmoth's will.
4 Echoing Truth and 3 Chain of Vapor is to fight the Control decks basically toe to toe with whatever they throw out.
4 Yixlid Jailer is to fight aggro decks that think they can fight with flashback or some sort of abilities from the graveyard. Dredge for example.

Mental Misstep, while a good four of; can potentially hurt more than what it does with trick countering a spell.

Well TPS has a long history of being one of the most dominant decks in MtG history.
It has the tools, skills, and atleast to some extent the flair needed to get it over the hump.

With recent restrictions like Chalice of the Void and Lodestone Golem; Stax has took a nosedive in tournaments so it's time to dust off a old deck of mine.

The cards selected show the raw power of TPS, and also show how it can be versatile in the SB with anti Combo, Control, and Aggro.

The sideboard is completely customizable. Within the colors blue and black

Card explanations are in the dashes next to the cards. Now the problem is whether to use Gifts Ungiven, or try and use some alternative method for a tutor or combo enabler. The deck needs 3 more blue sources to be at tip top condition. Maybe a unrestricted brainstorm would help. I had a list earlier about TPS but forgot the one of cards it used. I guess slot something like Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time or possibly something like Windfall.
