I can vision this in jund
I would add card mechanics like
Call to the Netherworld, Shadow of the Grave, Garna, the Bloodflame, Creeping Renaissance to reload your hand
Liliana, Dreadhorde General, Erebos, Bleak-Hearted,Moldervine Reclamation,Fecundity, Korvold, Fae-Cursed King. to improve the draw
This could help you get past the lands.
plenty of ways in these colors to make this combo go lethal or as pointed out fetch win (IMO do both)
the true challenge is making it consistent
I hate to say it but tutor for a tutor Diabolic Revelation
I hope this is enough suggestions to get you started on your journey, Good luck

Interesting. I honestly think that our builds are branched far enough apart that literally any change we could make is up for debate, since we both experience very different things, mine being minmaxed for speed and resilience, and yours being valuey awesomeness.
The Gift of Immortality vs Angelic Renewal thing is up for debate tbh. Gift is a second Saffi with Sun Titan and Boonweaver Giant, while Angelic Renewal is a second Saffi with Renegade Rallier and Sun Titan. I think I prefer Renewal, because it's a bit faster and can't be fizzled by creature removal.
The argument against Fecundity is completely fair tbh. Its arguable. I wouldn't even consider it if this were a reactive, slower deck. But seeing as to how it's designed for S P E E D (so that it doesnt die to the same fate as Karador), I think itll be a great boon.
Rec Sage vs KoA is also arguable in the grand scheme. I prefer KoA for versatility, but Rec Sage for the other reasons. The biggest reasons for KoA are blocking, drawing with Greater Good and pulling out of bad scenarios. I can totally understand and accept the reasoning behind Rec Sage over it though. Might even cut Manglehorn for it, though that tapped ability is pretty monstrous in the cEDH landscape.
The main reason I have Walking Ballista in is because it's an easily tutorable outlet for infinite mana, which the deck generates casually. I've also been known to pull some shenanigans with Rector and such, but that's my secret ;).
I honestly really dislike SFM here. And it's not some huge reason either. It's mostly because I dont have a second equipment I dont care about finding. If I had a second one that I actively cared enough to find, it'd be worth playing. Finding Clamp is nice, but it being a potentially dead card is a little on the iffy side for me. Could be worth checking out though.
Anything else come to mind? Also, what would you say a snazzy name for Saffi would be? For the server ofc.

List is looking good. It's interesting to see you come to the same conclusion around Protean Hulk as I did, though from a different angle. Personally I never ran Angelic Renewal as it only really combos with Sun Titan. I personally think that Gift of Immortality is better. Yes, it has the most value on Saffi but it also forms an infintie loop with both Sun Titan and Boonweaver Giant (for one extra mana). I used to pair it with Eidolon of Blossoms as a card draw engine, and while I have since cut both cards, i was a very good engine. You can also pair it with Heart Warden if you wanted to run that.
It will be interesting to see how you go with Fecundity. I ran it a while ago however found that Iwas giving my opponents too many cards from it. Granted, ther were a lot of graveyard leveraging decks, but I just didn't like to not be in control of the card draw. That's I think why I ultimately moved to stuff like Mikokoro, Center of the Sea and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds. While it is a guaranteed draw for my opponents, I say when it happens. But give it a go - I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it post testing.
A couple of other things I have noticed for the list:
If you're going to run Walking Ballista, have you thought about adding Heliod, Sun-Crowned? Honestly though, my thoughts would be to cut Ballista for Stoneforge Mystic. The reasoning for this is that Stoneforge can get Skullclamp which can then let you assemble your other win condition (let's face it, Ballista is primarily there for the infinite mana case). And with the new rules change (which I'm not happy about but makes Saffi better), you can use Skullclamp + Saffi as a card draw engine while still putting her in the command zone so that you can rinse and repeat.
As for the Saffi discord, I would be happy to be a part of it, though I'm not the most active person on discord.

This seems Like a really cool deck, I feel that It could use card draw like Moldervine Reclamation and Skullclamp to refill your hand when it sarts to get empty. I see that you have Fecundity which is a great start. I think looking at sacrifice heavy decks like Prossh, Skyraider of Kher or Korvold, Fae-Cursed King (Sorry, both are jund decks), since both of these commanders do something similar when playing cards that like to sacrifice their boards. Having utility in getting an Executioner's Capsule or the black seal would I think make this deck more synergistic. Just some thoughts.

Illusionist's Bracers would double opponent sacs.
Den Protector is cheap and pretty worthless after you use the morph. Good sac bait.
Aspect of Mongoose can be cast, sacced, returned to your hand and cast again. Each color has a few enchantments that return to your hand when they hit the graveyard.

Thank you so much for the suggestions and advice. In trying to make a "casual" deck to have something for my non-cEDH friends, I ultimately had some hold-overs from previous iterations. I need to remind myself that casual can still be high-power. I made a bunch of changes that will pay off nicely and are already smoothing out playtesting.
The only spot I'm really testing at this point is Champion of Lambholt, but I'm giving her a chance for now. Again, thank you very much.
