I have considered Smothering Tithe and personally, I feel that it's too slow for this build and my meta. It's relying on your opponent's for mana (1 mana per turn unless they have a draw engine, per opponent that doesn't pay) and I'd rather have Gilded Lotus since I can access 3 mana immediately. If my meta becomes more draw intensive then yes, Smothering Tithe would be an auto include.

Will be Swapping in Mystic Remora , Imperial Recruiter , and Ral, Storm Conduit Darksteel Ingot for Gut Shot , Electrostatic Field , Gilded Lotus , Sapphire Medallion and play testing seeing how this will work out.

Hi ZombieCat! Have you had considerations for Smothering Tithe ? I personally prefer it over Gilded Lotus . Either one as a lone source of ramp could possibly get a turn six Avacyn, but Smothering Tithe has the potential to get Avacyn out sooner. And if it doesn't, it slows down your opponents. Just a thought.

Man, it really hurts me to see cards like
in commander. Also it seems to be common for decks to have way to little ramp (4 in this case). I would highly suggest running about 10 in every deck. In this deck, you might want to favor rocks that can help you cast
Rakdos, Lord of Riots
a turn early.
Cards that come to mind are:
- Rakdos Signet
- Talisman of Indulgence
- Fellwar Stone
- Coldsteel Heart
- Charcoal Diamond
- Fire Diamond
- Pentad Prism
- Star Compass
- Sphere of the Suns
- Wayfarer's Bauble
There are also great colorless rocks, as well as rocks that don't help you cast Rakdos early, but that can give you big advanteges in the mid- to lategame. Please consider that you might not always be able to count on Rakdos's ability to cast your expensive creatures. If your commander gets stolen or permanently removed, you should have ways to not outright lose:

here we are, recieving a ban that hurts our deck quite a lot. I see that you changed your list into a storm based combo with Aetherflux + Paradoxical Outcome. My approach was shifitng more into control (see my List).
There are some cardchoices you are running I'm quite curious about. Gonna list them here:
is Arcum's Astrolabe worth its slot?
Illusionist's Bracers seem very slow to me. While comboing with Aphetto and creating value with Azami, that card is kinda situational I think. What are your results from testing?
also no Time Spiral ?

I've never before considered Odric, Lunarch Marshal and he will get added.
I'll try out Skullclamp .
I see your point on Dictate of Heliod . While it's fun, it doesn't really do much.
I'll try taking out Dreamstone Hedron for some cheaper ramp.
I like Staff of the Sun Magus , but with the cards you have suggested to me, I'll take it out.
I like Archangel of Tithes because it's an Angel and it has high Devotion, so I won't be taking that out.
I'm not sure about my LGS's current meta, so I'll be keeping Angel of Jubilation for now.
Thanks for your comment. I don't like Mind's Eye because I feel it's too expensive for what it does, and I might be able to find better ways to draw cards consistently.
Thanks for your comment. I agree with you, I'll be definitely be adding some more card draw. I already have Endless Atlas in the deck, and I'll consider Alhammarret's Archive . I like Alms Collector and Slate of Ancestry , so I'll be adding those if I can find space.
I see your point on Bontu's Monument , I'll take that out.
Thanks for your comment. My lifegain package is mainly for card draw, but I'll probably take most of it out for other cards. The only thing I would leave in would be Auriok Champion , The Soul Sisters, and Suture Priest . I'll probably also take out Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams , because they don't do much anymore.
Thanks for your comment. I agree with you and enpc, so I'll be taking out my lifegain package.
Emancipation Angel is going in.
I don't like Mind's Eye because I think it's too expensive for what it does.
I'm not a big fan of Dusk because it will kill most of my guys.

I'm in agreement with enpc on the lifegain package - There really isn't much of a pay off here. If you want to keep it, I'd include a couple cards that would act as wincons to benefit off all the life gain like Aetherflux Reservoir or Felidar Sovereign .
As for other suggestions, I'd look at:
Emancipation Angel - angel, goes with your bounce sub-theme
Worn Powerstone - good colorless ramp
Gilded Lotus - good colored ramp
Mind's Eye - good card draw
Dusk - one part board wipe, one part brings back half your creatures.
Hedron Archive - more ramp with a side of card draw.
