boristormodor, sorry I should have checked the latest change log to see Teferi, Time Raveler was cut.

How often do you cast/ exile Cyclonic Rift or Finale of Devastation when using Golos, Tireless Pilgrim's ability in conjunction with the
Bloom Tender + Jeskai Ascendancy/Faeburrow Elder/Living Plane combo?

I ask this because you mention both in the win-con section detailing the above listed combo. You state, "In the end, we want to play some creatures out, or play an overloaded Cyclonic Rift and finally play a game winning Finale of Devastation, which gives all of our creatures for example +30/+30 and haste."

Hey there, thanks for the feedback!

I decided not to run Dramatic Scepter as they tend to be fairly dead cards on their own in this list. Unlike a commander such as Urza, Lord High Artificer we can't use Isochron Scepter as a rock, and Dramatic Reversal doesn't help dorks ramp when they just came into play.

I've actually never thought of that synergy with Basalt Monolith! While I'm generally not a fan of Basalt due to how slow it is, I'm gonna add it to my list of things to test so I can see how well it fits into the deck.

Walking Ballista is something that I've been on and off about. The main reason I haven't included it is because if I have infinite mana available and a tutor, I'm going to be fetching Thrasios, Triton Hero anyways. While Ballista is hit by artifact tutors, chances are if I have those tutors I'm going to be aiming for our Sensei's Divining Top line instead. Also it gets shut down by Null Rod effects which is part of the reason I have Thrasios as the deck's main backup, since he isn't affected by them.

I didn't include Incubation Druid since it's one of the weakest dorks IMO and takes too much to get set up in comparison with the other two. I feel like having Bloom Tender and Faeburrow Elder is enough when it comes to the untap combos.

Honestly the reason I didn't take Intuition is because I forgot about it lmao, I'm so used to playing Rest in Peace decks that I usually don't think about it. Will add it in ASAP.

Runic Armasaur I have a love/hate relationship with. It's great when it works and awful when it doesn't, but I'll probably sideboard it for matchups where I'm against decks it gets a lot of value from. I'd most likely swap it out for Verity Circle actually since currently my meta runs a lot of dorks hence its inclusion.

When it comes to Thassa's Oracle the reason I say it's a dead card is because it does nothing on its own. It's definitely a combo piece and an excellent one at that, but by itself it just sits in our hand if we draw it. Thought Lash and Paradigm Shift are also dead cards in the same fashion since their only purpose would be to pair with Oracle.

I actually forgot about Long-Term Plans as well which is funny since I actually like it a lot in general, so thanks for reminding me about it!

I'm personally not a huge fan of cards like Drift of Phantasms which only exist for their Transmute effect. The reason I include Muddle the Mixture is because it's also a budget counter as well.

Idyllic Tutor I've been on the fence about here. It could likely go into the list but I need to test it more to make a decision tbh.

For Stony Silence effects that's exactly why we have the Thrasios, Triton Hero / Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy line as our secondary wincon.

Once again, thanks for the feedback! I'll certainly add in Intuition and Long-Term Plans, as well as test out Basalt Monolith to see how that goes. Will mostly likely try Idyllic Tutor some more but I'll have to find space for it first.

Seems like a cEDH list...

Why no Isochron Scepter+Dramatic Reversal combo? You have the rocks and dorks to support it.

And if you're playing Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, why not play Basalt Monolith?

With these additions you already run the tutors to seek them out, and then you can add in Walking Ballista as an alternate wincon.

And if you are running Neoform and Pemmin's Aura/Freed from the Real, why not run Incubation Druid as well as another infinite mana outlet to go with Bloom Tender and/or Faeburrow Elder.

Another good tutor is to run Intuition...and you go get the 1 card you really want, Noxious Revival and Eternal Witness (or Regrowth if you want to play it) and it guarantees you get your card you want to tutor for.

Also, I feel like adding Runic Armasaur could be good to go with your Verity Circle draw effects. Where Verity Circle doesn't do well is against Thrasios activations, but that is where the Armasaur shines.

And if you feel that Thassa's Oracle is a "dead" card, you could make it NOT a "dead" card by using Thought Lash or Paradigm Shift to make a 2 card combo with THORACLE.

Other tutor effects to consider:

Long-Term Plans = You already play most of the cards to support it: Sensei's Divining Top, Sylvan Library, Mirri's Guile...

Drift of Phantasms = Tutors for Pemmin's Aura, Freed from the Real, Faeburrow Elder

Idyllic Tutor = Search for your card draw specific enchantments to gain advantage or your Pemmin's Aura or Freed from the Real.

I noticed that Stony Silence effects shut you down quite easily, so aside from removing the stax piece stopping you, think about adding in a secondary win condition such as the previous mentioned options above to add into more consistency against bad match ups.

Hey, well done with precon upgrade on a budget.

Scion of the Ur-Dragon is one of the best Dragons for Dragon tribal being a repeatable Dragon tutor. Scion could replace Wardscale Dragon. Scion's ability to change into a Dragon can be done at instant speed which means during combat you can change into different Dragons whenever there's a stop at a combat phase.

Scion's ability goes well with Savage Ventmaw, Teneb, the Harvester and Bladewing the Risen which is a three Dragon combo to end up with Scion and cheat Teneb/Bladewing on the battlefield. Then if Teneb lives he can reanimate other Dragons you tutor for with Scion. Savage is part of the combo because you tutor for him first with Scion, before you attack which then gives you 6 mana to activate Scion three times during combat. The combo takes 11 mana therefore Savage making 6 mana means you only need 5 mana for other sources. Would you like me to explain this combo?

Consider cutting a few of the least good Dragons for more Dragon support? Rhythm of the Wild and Temur Ascendancy are in the maybeboard and they could replace two Dragons such as Vorosh, the Hunter and Darigaaz Reincarnated. The repeatable effects of Rhythm and Ascendancy are much better than what these Dragons can provide. Faeburrow Elder is also in the maybeboard and it's a much better ramp source than Mana Geode. Crux of Fate and Eerie Ultimatum are also in the maybeboard they could replace Spit Flame and Palace Siege.

There's 20 lands here of the 36 that will always ETB tapped which is a lot. The Tri lands on a budget are worth always ETB tapped, the rest are not. My advice is cut the Bounce lands and Scry lands for other types of lands. The combination of lots of Tri lands and Bounce lands is not good; play either one, not both in the same manabase.

Exotic Orchard is budget staple Rainbow land. By adding a few more basic lands then the 5 Battle lands are budget options since they have interaction with lots of basic lands. Cinder Glade, Smoldering Marsh, Sunken Hollow, Prairie Stream, Canopy Vista, can get each of these for less than $2 at TCGPlayer with Vista being the most expensive.

Manabase upgrades to consider:

You have Farseek and it can search for one of these Battle lands which is helpful for color fixing.

Good luck with your deck.

heavyuser Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is a great addition but don't sleep on Faeburrow Elder. If you can afford the former you can afford the latter, I'd suggest you make a spot for both of them.

Hey, nice Scroll Rack Invention :)

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Sol Ring and Command Tower are some staple budget cards in Commander. At TCGPlayer you can find Sol for less than $3 and Tower for less than $1. Congregation at Dawn is a good budget creature tutor with Gishath. Cast it the same turn you want play Gishath or the turn before to tutor for and arrange the top of your library with any three Dinos to cheat onto the battlefield. Forerunner of the Empire is a Dino tutor (puts the Dino on top of your library) and a repeatable enrage enabler when a Dino you control ETB.

Quartzwood Crasher is one of the better budget Dinos since it can be a repeatable source of Dino tokens since many other Dinos have trample especially with Ghalta. Crasher combines well with Garruk's Uprising which can be a repeatable draw source and can give all creatures you control trample. Ripjaw Raptor has a powerful enrage ability to draw a card when it takes damage. Rhythm of the Wild makes all creatures you cast uncounterable and it gives nontoken creatures when they ETB the option of haste or make it bigger with a +1/+1 counter.

With Orcish Lumberjack sacing a Forest you control can make four mana since you can tap the Forest for mana before you sac it which can be a quick way to ramp into Gishath or other Dinos. Farseek is two drop land ramp that can search for a dual land such as Stomping Ground, Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade. At TCGPlayer can get Vista and Glade for less than $2 each.

Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, for less than $150 you've done well with your version. You clearly know how to build a Commander deck with a low budget.

Cards that are $3 or less each to consider adding:

Scion of the Ur-Dragon is a very good Dragon as a repeatable Dragon tutor and it combos with Teneb, the Harvester + Bladewing the Risen to reanimate the Dragons you tutor for. Consider cutting some of the least good Dragons for a few creature tutors that can search for the better Dragons?

Temur Ascendancy does a lot for a three drop, haste for all creatures you control and repeatable draw when most Dragons ETB including Dragon tokens with 4 or more power. These land suggestions would add five more lands that can ETB untapped meaning they could replace five lands that always ETB tapped. Cascading Cataracts is helpful with Jodah/Fist letting you for five mana of any colors plus tapping Cataracts to cast any card.

Cards to consider cutting:

Even on a budget the Vivid lands are not good unless you have proliferate to put more counters on them and I don't recommend adding proliferate just for the Vivids.

Good luck with your deck.
