Awakened Amalgam Discussion

I think you're trying too hard to get Awakened Amalgam as big as possible. Commendable, yes, but probably more suitable for Commander / EDH format. You need a little more land, 16 isn't going to be enough with what you have here. At least add 4 more lands like Memorial to Genius and some form of mana dork, like Llanowar Elves. Also if you want to make this rotation proof you will need to drop Cascading Cataracts and Blossoming Defense to be legal for October's release of Guilds of Ravnica. I'd suggest Spell Pierce instead of Negate for a better mana curve.
A side note, on the top right side of the editing page for deck builder there are Hubs that denote what other type of deck it is outside of its format. In your case this is a U/G (Simic) by color, this is probably a Budget deck since it costs less than $50 as well.

TheCatHerder the Awakened Amalgam seems too linear, even though it can get kinda big and scary, it's not that way on it's own. even though hypothetically it can get up to 25/25, if i manage to get all of my lands out in a game and by then i sure hope there's something else i can use by then. seems much more efficient in a 60-card where the linear benefit is more useful. having an even-cost 4/4 for 4 that grows to 5/5 next turn with a different land gives more of a defined edge in modern imho.

Spire of Industry does nothing for you ever. as does Unclaimed Territory or Unknown Shores. Inventors' Fair would be a good replacement for one and Sequestered Stash another. Even Arch of Orazca would be better.
You need some win cons that work.
Awakened Amalgam isnt bad. The Immortal Sun can ruin people. Golden Guardian Flip can be great as you can then start popping off with Golem tokens each turn. Metalwork Colossus if you best hope of rolling over people.
Skysovereign, Consul Flagship can kill creatures or plainswalkers as you essentially have no removal and a commander that just draws cards. Aethersphere Harvester has evasion and isrelatively easy to crew.
There are other things but thats about it that I can think of.
Pacification Array can keep their threats tapped which is the best removal you get.

Ah now I see it's to make Awakened Amalgam strong, hmm well you could replace those I guess.
Karametra, God of Harvests might be interesting as well

Thank you for your suggestions EDedan
Wayward Swordtooth and Broken Bond help us ramp from our hand and not library so i dislike that idea...although Wayward Swordtooth would help with retrieving Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar from the graveyard and is a big beater...that might be a good idea ill try that out.
Sylvan Awakening is a good idea, I saw it but wasn't sure how good it'd be...it would be nice to push through for the kill.
Jadelight Ranger, Merfolk Branchwalker, and Ixalli's Diviner utilize the explore mechanic and since it does help with card draw filtering, I have been using treasure map and Thaumatic Compass for filters and card draw...ill play around with the numbers and see how it flows...
thanks again for your input

I'd try and streamline your deck - cut down on your worse cards, and max out on your best ones. Awakened Amalgam, Golden Guardian Flip, Nature's Spiral, Reviving Melody, Wake the Reflections, Wildest Dreams, Intangible Virtue, New Horizons, Weirding Wood, Xenograft, and Ghirapur Orrery in particular don't seem that strong. Instead, I'd add some Birds of Paradise and/or Noble Hierarchs, and go all-in on your splicers. Max out on Blade Splicer, Master Splicer, Wing Splicer, and maybe even add Precursor Golem and Distortion Strike as another user suggested. Removal is also always nice; and I'd add 4 copies of Path to Exile or Condemn, depending on your budget.
