Is there potential for Spellweaver Helix to fuel some combo decks in modern? I posted a deck a while back on using it as a combo enabler with the old Raven's Crime/Time Stretch combo. I'm curious if some new cards from innistrad (like Army of the Damned) can be used with Helix to make a turn 3 combo deck. I naturally gravitated towards Glimpse the Unthinkable, Life from the Loam, Ideas Unbound and Hedron Crab as graveyard enablers.

Thoughts? Are there combo decks out there waiting to be created with this artifact?

TBH It will be a dead card that seems cool, no matter how cool the combo might seem. I can't imagine it really turning a game around consistently

I've messed around with it, and it's been disappointing for me. It's not impossible to set up a turn three lock with it, but you can't do so with much consistency, and you really can't run it well unless you build a deck around it, so the shell is much weaker than the UR Control shell of SplinterTwin or the Rock shell of Melira.
