@Cartrix It's actually pretty resilient vs spot removal. I play Laboratory Maniac at the very end, usually with multiple cyclers in my hand. So I could respond by cycling another card. If you counter him instead, I could cast an Unearth. Disenchant or Counterspell on Fluctuator on the other hand, breaks this deck.

The best case scenario I picture is having Alhammarret's Archive out with that and Fluctuator so I can get a lot of card draw triggers. The cards that immediately come to mind for me is Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and The Locust God to get the most out of the card draw triggers. I would have to add blue to the deck to get that certain combo off. Interesting idea... I'll make another version of the deck and test it out.

So maybe make the Cycling cost up to less, and the second one be a loot? The idea behind the first ability is a budget alternative of Fluctuator in case it spikes in price (It's on the Reserved List, after all).

Wow, your list is excellent! Semblance anvil is so much better than my Fluctuator + cycling creatures setup.
I didn't think of sacrificing Garna before the ability triggers, awesome!
What would you put in a Doomsday pile? I feel it might hurt more than it helps, but maybe I'm not seeing it... I'm also not sure if Hivestone is worth the slot, as it's dead-on-board without Basal Sliver which is good on its own, but I didn't see them when I was goldfishing...
I would also put a bit more land, as I wasn't finding them as much as I'd like when goldfishing and this deck is pretty explosive when it starts off fast. I think Malfegor, Rakdos, Lord of Riots and razaketh, the foulblooded are a bit too mana intensive considering how fast the deck could be, but I guess if you're looping they're quite good especially razaketh. Blood Pet might help you go off earlier?
What changes would you make if you wanted to make a 100-200$ budget version?
Stoked to see someone else interested in Garna!! Please keep me posted :)

Have you considered Fluctuator? I have a whole deck that is built on cycling and this artifact is a gem!.

Sorry if this is nitpicky, but why call it budget when you're running some of the fetches and dual lands? I know you can't help the personally ridiculous pricing of cards like Fluctuator, but still.

Timetwister replaced with Nimble Obstructionist as it was often helping my opponents more than myself and is simply now too expensive to risk it being stolen at my dodgy LGS. The Nimble Obstructionist has been surprisingly good at countering triggers and has saved the precious Fluctuator on more than one occasion!
