Caged Sun Discussion

I recently created the following deck: Mushroom Flood
It's for casual purposes and plays quite nicely in this context. Still I'm looking for ideas to improve. [The deck does not contain Doubling Season, Parallel Lives or Primal Vigor for budget reasons.]
Some problems I noticed were: 1) It is a bit like a house of cards. E.g. if I play a Gigantosaurus turn 3, Fungal Sprouting on turn 4 and Mycolothturn 5, I can easily get a lot of tokens fast. The problem, though is, that if anything gets taken out of the chain of action, it can get pretty bad pretty quickly. 2) Mana flood can easily happen, especially when having Caged Sun and/or Harvest Season but not Triumph of Ferocity.
There's a few cards that I will maybe take out: Shapers' Sanctuary, Jade Mage, Gravity Well and one Harvest Season. I definitely want to add a second Leyline of Vitality and a third Beastmaster Ascension. Also I'm thinking about replacing one Mycoloth with a Gigantosaurus. I also thought about adding Throne of the God-Pharaoh.
I would be really interested in what other people have to say to these thoughts but I'm also open to other suggestions. Please keep in mind, though, that this deck is for casual and that I don't wanna add really expensive stuff.

What do you want the goal of your deck to be? I've looked it over, but have trouble seeing any particular focus.
Caged Sun doesn't look like a good fit to me. Its pretty high CMC to be a good mana rock in a three-color deck. With your ability to draw cards, I'd switch it out with something like Thought Vessel. Argent Sphinx is neat, but...why?
I'm just curious as to what your focus is here.

Wanted to keep this deck fast with a lot of card-draw and tutors.
Draw your deck and put Laboratory Maniac on the field then draw one last time. Take board control with counters and make your wizards strong with Final Iteration, Akroma's Memorial, Caged Sun, Naru Meha, Master Wizard and Coat of Arms. Or simply go infinite with Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal. Then simply retun every permanent of you opponent to their hands with Capsize.

SufferFromEDHD - Heya! This is quite a unique Darien deck. It looks like you run a lot more token generators than I do. I should look into getting a few more myself as I find Darien almost always is public enemy number one once I play him.
Also noticed no Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots. I'm guessing your group likes to get rid of Darien quite regularly and not worth running them? One other thing to consider would be to run Caged Sun over Gauntlet of Power. I ran both in my deck for a while until I played gauntlet against two other decks that ran white and forgot it affects all players lol.
In response to your comment on my Darien page I had mentioned a few cards that I for sure want to try. To go with that I was wondering though how Righteous Confluence and Endless Atlas have worked out for you. They both piqued my curiosity. Anyway the deck looks fun!

Etali rules! Yes, he can keep up with moderately competitive decks. I run an Etali deck here and there that is fairly successful. You just have to keep in mind that your own deck will have a HUGE focus on early ramp, protection, and haste enabling. So items like Caged Sun, that have 6cmc aren't always the most neccessary ramp (although helps for affording commander tax).

The core of the deck looks pretty good, but I have a few changes that I would make. For a deck like this you'll want way more ramp. Try to hit 8-10 pieces of ramp, and since your mono color I also recommend the doublers in Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power. But you should include some combination of things like Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Mind Stone Commander's Sphere for the sun titan interaction.
I would cut Codex Shredder, and Sands of Delirium and I'm a maybe on Perpetual Timepiece. You already have altar of dementia which will vastly out perform those cards. If you are interested in self mill Mesmeric Orb is ridiculous but expensive. Memory Jar is also solid in a deck like this, but again probably out of budget. I would also cut Mind's Eye its really only good in decks that don't tap out to play creatures in their main phase.
Mask of Memory is a nice way to get some card draw especially with the fliers. Endless Atlas is a nice way to get some card draw. Since you are running all of the find land cards (which are great) things like Azor's Gateway Flip and Scroll Rack are really good with those. But again those are pricey. Ive been experimenting with Treasure Map Flip for additional card draw...no verdict yet. Oh Thaumatic Compass Flip is sweet, it helps you make land drops and turns into ramp/protection when it flips over.
Id also like to see some additional removal in mono white I like to be at least 5 board wipes. You can pick the ones that best suit your needs. You'll also want Return to Dust and/or Crush Contraband.
I would cut always watching and add Odric, Lunarch Marshal in its place. 1 more mana for a lot more abilities.
hope this helps!

I'd suggest using Caged Sun over Gauntlet of Power; the only real downside of the change is that Caged Sun has an even CMC. That said, it doesn't give your opponents the power boost or mana ramp, and boosts ANY land that produces that color for you; not just basics.
