Board the Weatherlight
Look at the top five cards of your library. You may reveal a historic card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. (Artifacts, legendaries, and Sagas are historic.)

Board the Weatherlight Discussion
3 days ago
in my original build i played Shalai, Voice of Plenty turn 5, and kept 1 open for dive down . the turn after that i would put Curator's Ward on her! its insane how quickly every card aggro decks have become dead weight once you properly defend her.
i have no idea how viable these cards are in commander, but i also used stuff like Board the Weatherlight and Memorial to Unity to find historic spells. having 2 copies each in a 60 card deck is way different than having 1 copy in a 100 card deck though.

I usually wait for 5 manna and keep a dive down up before i play Shalai, Voice of Plenty or Arcades, the Strategist in this version of the deck. Another sweet play is to put Curator's Ward on Shalai, Voice of Plenty, then the only targetable thing becomes the ward. Ive stopped red decks dead on their feet with under 3 life remaining more than once.
I agree with you though, and the deck im currently running i dropped the cards that were wonky. Board the Weatherlight was replaced with a copy of Anticipate and Memorial to Unity, with a slight change in the mana-base. The card found me nothing like 1/3 of the time. And if you are struggling to get your green sources it doesnt help you at all. tetsuko umizawa, fugitive got kicked out because, he is only good in a very specific scenario, and he does to Lightning Strike. Replace him with another copy of dive down and a counterspell. Curator's Ward was also taken out for a copy of Conclave Tribunal and Ixalan's Binding. Overall there are more answers, which made games last longer.
Im currently working on more changes, swapping out Traxos, Scourge of Kroog for Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp, as traxos isnt a turn 5 blocker if i need one, and if you cant untap him, its hard to attack at all.

Interesting deck idea, i think you should capitalise on the whole historic mechanic, since you have a good engine base here, its just a bit messy. I think cards like Weatherlight and Board the Weatherlight would be useful here, as well as increasing Danitha Capashen, Paragon to a 4 of, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain to a 3 of, Valduk, Keeper of the Flame to a 3 of and Shalai, Voice of Plenty to a 2 or 3 of. Shes very strong. Of coarse this means dropping some non legendary creatures, like Champion of the Flame , Adanto Vanguard and Storm Fleet Sprinter , i like Siren Stormtamer in here for protection.
omg and you can use Urza's Ruinous Blast effectively too! Thats real nice.
Now with this Legendary synergy going on, I think 3 Blackblade Reforged is your best equipment! I'd drop the 2 Short Sword for the extra two copies. I also like Forebear's Blade over Sigiled Sword of Valeron so its up to you which one you want to run, but you'll want 2 copies over 1 of each, in my opinion. I like being able to move the equipment for free on Forebear, but making dudes with Sigiled Sword is good too. Your call here.
And yes, i hope you pull well for the land base, it will speed it up immensely!
Best of luck! +1 I'd like to see where you take this list. It looks interesting. If you got some time, i'd appreciate if you could give me some feedback on my deck? Song of the Conclave (Tokens)

Mathwise, to get 1 green source by turn 4 when you want to start thinking about playing arcades, you need 8 green sources in your deck to consistantly have the mana you need. But you also dont ever need more than that 1 green source you have to play arcades. On the other hand, having blue sources early on is very important, and white is also way more useful than green, so the second green source you find can be suboptimal. Worst case scenario you start with 2 green sources. My landbase for the wall deck is 2 Sunpetal Grove, which isnt just a green source, 2 Memorial to Unity, which is like Board the Weatherlight, and if i do find another green source i can sack this one. 1 forest, and 3 evolving wilds, which can become blue or white if i already have green, for a total of 8 possible sources.thats the sweet spot. Notice that 7 of the 8 has something else they can do other than just be a green source.

Alright I've made a few changes.
I also attempted to fix my mana base per suggestions. I will add another sunpetal once I have a few extra bucks!
Thanks for all the support :)

NyanNijet thanks for the suggestions! I'm already playing Board the Weatherlight but i hadn't considered Chromatic Lantern. There are definitely a good amount of color intensive cards in the deck so it could be a nice include to help things run smoother.
