A few recent changes to the deck including a couple cards from Dominaria:
Archangel of Tithes ---> Lyra Dawnbringer: The 1 mana tax Archangel of Tithes imposed was just too small to act as a dissuasion. Lyra Dawnbringer offers more keyword soup as well as pumping other angels. I'm considering making her the commander of this deck.
Bygone Bishop ---> Enlightened Tutor: Bygone Bishop was quite hit or miss with the clue tokens. The Immortal Sun and Mind's Eye are the best draw engines in the deck. I figured that I may as well add a tutor that can fetch them.

- Altar of Dementia
- Winter Orb
- Watery Grave
- Hallowed Fountain
- Llanowar Wastes
- Caves of Koilos
- Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
- Dryad Arbor
- Elvish Mystic
- Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
- Green Sun's Zenith
- Fauna Shaman
- Lion's Eye Diamond
- Auriok Salvagers
- Underground Sea
- Tropical Island
- Arbor Elf
- Kataki, War's Wage
- Mystical Tutor
- Frantic Search
Upgraded Manabase and added Salvagers combo. Arbor Elf is an upgrade to Mystic with the Duals. Thalia is bad with Salvagers and only a mediocre hatebear. Kataki offers some artifact hate that even hits Cage and Totem but doesn't prevent our combos. Cut Green Sun's Zenith package as it's mediocre if not played t1 and comes at the cost of playing Dryad Arbor. Fauna Shaman is pretty slow. Search (or better intuition) as to not lose out on effects that put creatures in the yard.

A few recent updates to the deck:
Unwind is the only card I'm adding from Dominaria. The deck wants to hold up mana to reanimate at the end step. Similar to Rewind, this new counterspell allows me to hold up mana, counter if needed, and then still have mana to reanimate.
Also swapped in Stinkweed Imp. This guy is great at self-milling and provides a pseudo-deathtouch rattlesnake for the early game to dissuade early aggression.
I've put back in Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Illusionist's Bracers which were cut last time. Yes, it's a bit mana intensive to equip the bracers and be able to activate the Scarab God. However, late game it is absolutely crushing to be able to reanimate 2 creatures for the price of 1.

Stylez121, 8 hours agoWith Dominara now released, Pillar of Origins and New Horizons are out, Llanowar Elves and Navigator's Compass are in. Looking to see how these mods affect the Deck and what other shenanigans that come our way before Ixalan and the deck die off in next year's Mass Extinction Event (Rotation)

Although there is increased synergy and removal with Wave of Vitriol I felt there are more times that an unconditional mass land drop effect is more consistently useful.
The draw ability from Elemental Bond is very useful but is conditional to an existing board state. Sylvan Scrying enables the deck to find a key utility land which I have found to be beneficial as a lot of the pods I play in know not to let Omnath stick around.
I want to up my land count as I have noticed that since dropping to 38 lands I tend to be mulliganing more often than when I was running 40+ I've also managed to find an expedition Ancient Tomb

Faith's Reward -> Vandalblast - Faith's Reward is another of those just in case cards that was included in the deck but has never been used once. I believe that Vandalblast is the best choice to replace it, as it will help to deal with the artifact heavy meta within my play group. Another candidate would be Armageddon which would help assure Narset victory in more cases, but for now artifact destruction seems the best choice.
Chandra, the Firebrand -> Chandra, Torch of Defiance - I really want this newer Chandra...once she rotates out of standard and becomes more affordable. Firebrand doesn't really do a whole lot outside of the reverberate effect, which is really good, but otherwise she's kind of a dead weight walker. Torch of Defiance doubles up on the ramp with Pyromaster with the exile a card, you may cast it, but also can be used for straight up mana, and then her ult is a win-con with my walker combo. Overall, she'd just be way more useful to the deck.

These are my Budget Substitutions so far:
Mana Vault -> Thought Vessel
Pact of Negation -> Swan Song
Vedalken Shackles -> Acquire
Eldrazi Temple -> Island
Rhystic Study -> Windfall
Consecrated Sphinx -> Recurring Insight
Mystic Confluence -> Mystic Remora
Gilded Drake -> Thada Adel
Time Warp -> Muddle the Mixture
Bribery -> Diluvian Primordial
Ulamog 1,2 -> Void Winnover, Artisan of Kozilek
Cryptic Command -> Cancel
Temporal Manipulation -> Metallurgic Summonings
Search for Azcanta -> Future Sight
Intuition -> Long Term Plans
Time Spiral -> Day's Undoing
Ugin, the Spirit Dragon -> Curse of the Swine
Omniscience -> Mind's Dilation
Strip Mine -> Ghost Quarter
Top -> Crystal Ball
Swan Song should be in the main and not just a budget Substitution, it's that good.
Brittle Effigy isn't that great in my meta since Iona isn't played that much.
Seat of the Synod and Arcane Lighthouse should be in there.
Mind's Dilation could earn a permanent spot, Thievery seems a little bit expensive.
Crystal Ball is actually pretty good, could see keeping that in.
I need some amount of graveyard hate (2+ pieces) since Graveyard Decks are a big part of my meta. I could see running a whir of invention package to get some silver bullets here, namely Tormod's Crypt and Relic of Progenitus.
