Really cool idea - I love things that are "jank" from looking like a board of junk to opponents, but can explode into a win with a Wall of Junk !
Have you thought about Crystalline Crawler ? 1. Deck is 3 colors, which means an easy 3 sunburst effect, but with any land that taps for "any" color, you can easily achieve 4 colors 2. With 4 counters when it comes out, all of that Mana CAN be used right away, so you lost nothing - or you can save it for next turn and on turn 5, even without a land drop, you have 9 Mana (with it's tap for another counter). That's a pretty good turn 5. 3. Even if you don't dump it, it's still a great battery that is a better and better blocker/attacker the more it builds (and you can attack with a 5/5+ and still remove counters at instant speed later while it's tapped, so you can always hold up emergency Mana) 4. Another artifact for you.

Lucivarian First of all thank you for taking an interest in the deck. I don’t run artifact ramp because the deck is consistent at going off turn 4 without them. In fact, they are useful only in combination with some lands (for example Ancient Tomb ) to aid in the turn 4 kill goal.
That being said there are some advantages in running them, it allows for some turn 3 kills with god hands and it also allows for easier recasting of Belzenlok if it gets countered. I’d say try them out and see if you like them.
Btw I did miss Crystalline Crawler thank you for the catch!

bushido_man96, this deck cannot generate infinite mana, but, between Gyre Sage , Crystalline Crawler , Everflowing Chalice , Astral Cornucopia , and the storage lands, it can generate very large amounts of mana, so paying for Merfolk Skydiver 's ability should not be especially difficult.

bushido_man96, I did have both Steady Progress and Tezzeret's Gambit in this deck, but I replaced them with repeatable sources of proliferate, and this deck does still have both Fathom Mage and Temple Bell , which are only two cards, but I cannot afford to remove any cards that contribute to the central theme of this deck.
Also, do you believe that I can afford to replace Abzan Falconer with Merfolk Skydiver ? I already removed Abzan Battle Priest in favor of Crystalline Crawler , so I supposed that I could do the same for the falconer; Herald of Secret Streams and Mer-Ek Nightblade , however, are too good to remove, so I am keeping them in this deck.
