Hey, deck looks cool. Probably the number one thing to add rn are mana rocks. It's important to get off the ground quickly, and a lot of these guys require quite the mana investment to work. Things like Commander's Sphere, Gilded Lotus, Sol Ring, Coalition Relic, Mana Crypt, etc.

So the first big choice will be Superfriends vs Discard, and either can be used with your subpackage of flicker effects.

Suggestions for initial cuts I think have to be made after that distinction is called, because most of what you have would fit in one or the other without much issue...just not both.

These cards are the land-based ramp I found: Wayfarer's Bauble, Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart, Dreamscape Artist, Gem of Becoming and Myriad Landscape. Other ones are oddly situational, or just suck. Can supplement those with artifact mana like Gilded Lotus or Chromatic Lantern. Surveyor's Scope might be cute, but probably just bad. Sword of the Animist is a thing. Druidic Satchel is neat. More form this search:

troca opportunity por Precognitive Perception , shrine of the forsaken gods eh ruim, dispatch precisa de um deck mais focado em artefato, 19 eh pouco pra consistentemente ter 3 no campo, callous oppressor parece horrivel kkkk, painful truths nao funciona se voce jogar de graca do yennett, troca por um Read the Bones ou Notion Rain ou Dream Cache , o resto parece bem decente, mas vou falar um monte de carta impar que eu gosto: Burnished Hart , Thief of Sanity , Prognostic Sphinx , Scheming Symmetry , Acquire , Aether Gale , Wave of Reckoning eh especialmente bom pq nao mata yennett e mata o resto, Time Wipe , Plague Wind , Generous Gift , Mortify , Gilded Lotus , Imprisoned in the Moon , Mind's Dilation

I would not take out the talisman. Leave that in. You want as many rocks that come in untapped as possible. You should probably trash the others. I'd do Sol Ring , Arcane Signet , Dimir Signet , Talisman of Dominance , Wayfarer's Bauble , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Gilded Lotus , Turnabout , Cabal Ritual , and possibly Doubling Cube

Try throwing in some ramp spells IE: Cultivate , Rampant Growth , Kodama's Reach

Also something like Gilded Lotus or extra mana dorks Elvish Harbinger , Elvish Mystic or Rishkar, Peema Renegade might help ya with Omnath, Locus of Mana 's ability.

Just some ideas to Ponder on in the Thought Vessel !

But looks fun I've always loved ramp decks :)

Abubs of course! at this point, Paradox Engine has of course been banned in commander, but consider it; with Paradox Engine, Gilded Lotus and a sacrifice outlet like say, Ashnod's Altar all on the board at once, with Squee, the Immortal somewhere to be cast from. The interesting thing about Squee is that he circumnavigates the Commander Tax every time he dies by just being able to be cast from Exile or Grave indiscriminately for three mana, no matter what.

At the point you cast Squee with mana produced from Gilded Lotus, but before he resolves Paradox Engine will untap Gilded Lotus. After Squee hits the board, you can the immediately sacrifice him to the Altar and return yourself to the beginning state, only with more mana floating. You can repeat this process a number of times to use any number of effects to generate damage with Impact Tremors .

Or since of course Paradox Engine is unavailable, you could use Desecrated Tomb , Genesis Chamber , various cost reducers like Ruby Medallion or Helm of Awakening and Phyrexian Altar to generate more creatures per each time you cast Squee, allowing you to generate infinite army Bats or Myr.

Basically the point is to recast Squee a LOT and get benefits out of it. It was more of a meme than anything else as I've taken this deck apart at this point. It was very fun to play but most of the time fell short due to my small cardpool. Thanks for comment ^^

Man I'd really reconsider Coveted Jewel it's bad enough to hand over effectively a Gilded Lotus but to give them three cards on top of that? Big Ooof. Honestly for the same CMC or less you might be better served with a Dreamstone Hedron or the new Nyx Lotus

Some neat things from the new set so far

Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded - gives everything haste, still a very important effect for Mairsil. "Sneak attacks" stuff out allowing for me to use the effects and then leave it in the grave until Mairsil swoops in to cage it. And indestructible, so difficult to remove.

Shadowspear - Allows me to target hexproof and destroy indestructible for way cheaper than I should be able to. I think effects like this ought to be around cmc. Still potentially useful. May or may not actually use this. I think the lifelink will be nice.

Nyx Lotus - another Gilded Lotus . though maybe not as good in this deck?

Thassa, Deep-Dwelling - an indestructible Conjurer's Closet , should be very useful.
