I ran into the same problem of recursion with a U/B deck. The colors are good for creature recursion but nothing else. If you want enchantment recursion, Crystal Chimes can help. With Beacon of Unrest, you could do it several times. For instants and sorcercies you have Archeomancer, Mnemonic Wall and Possessed Skaab I would consider adding Coffin Queen, Havengul Lich and Chainer, Dementia Master - these allow you to recur not only your own creatures but opponents as well. Geth, Lord of the Vault is good as well for opponents graveyards. Another trick you could do is put in Haakon, Stromgald Scourge along with either Ashes of the Fallen, Conspiracy or Arcane Adaptation naming Knight.

I used to run a, elemental deck, i used Conspiracy at the time, but i guess now we can use Arcane Adaptation, though, i guess all we really need is Ashes of the Fallen for the Horde of Notions ability. That plus Maelstrom Wanderer, too good, ofc a sac engine like Phyrexian Altar would be nice to get the engine started. what amusing is elementals like Thundermare (which has been made a elemental) and Timbermare with like, a Deadeye Navigator, or maybe a Mindslicer and Ashes of the Fallen to control cards in hand. Maybe more control-y than you want. Spike Weaver is for infinite fogs if you got the ashes of the fallen, graveyard hate hurts tho.

Thanks RedJokr. Somewhat delicate with the fact that Conspiracy and Ashes of the Fallen are required to be in play. But I haven't been this excited about a deck in a long time. Since my Rakdos the Defiler deck.

I actually considered that exact combo, which you can do with any number of other creatures too as long as you have Ashes of the Fallen, but I cut bitter ordeal because I can just do it with gonti and he's also good not as part of an infinite combo. Thanks for the cool suggestion!

Patriarch's Bidding is really good for tribal decks.
Ashes of the Fallen is clever with your commander
Karmic Guide isn't an elemental but still super good, and combos with reveillark and a sac outlet

First off I want to say I love the deck! I had one for the longest time and enjoyed it quite a bit!!!
So lets talk card choices,
I think i like the rest of the tri-land cycle (Savage Lands) over the vivid cycle. They always produce different color mana and can't run out of charges.
Once you start upgrading those options Cascading Cataracts might be a cut. It doesn't allow you to cast Horde of Notions on curve and the mana fixing shouldn't be such a concern once you upgrade a bit.
I'm not convinced Amulet of Vigor is necessary either. If you're just running it to untap ETB tapped lands it's effect is kinda wasted i think. Haven't played it like this so if you have good experiences with it keep it in!
Hoofprints of the Stag is soooo slow
Metallic Mimic is a small effect in a big game
is Stigma Lasher necessary?
Malignus is just a big beater, no extra effects
Grave Sifter could be cut for a cheaper card
Now onto the possible additions!!
Frost Lynx, Wispmare, Forgotten Ancient, Nevermaker, Spitemare, Ingot Chewer, Lord of Extinction, Whisperwood Elemental, AEthersnipe, Bane of Progress, Greenwarden of Murasa, Rubblehulk, Chameleon Colossus, Crib Swap, Nameless Inversion, Taurean Mauler,
Buried Alive is like a triple tutor.
You could do with some more mass creature kill i think. 4 mana Wrath of God, Day of Judgment and Damnation allow you to cast them then your commander on back to back turns. plus they're cheap enough to cast then cast something else. Aura Shards is really good too
