For the orbs?
Now we need a Derevi-style mana base that can play around the Orbs.
Since we will be abusing Derevi’s untap ability we should put in all of the lands we can muster that tap for 2+ mana, such as bounce lands: Azorius Chancery, Selesnya Sanctuary, Simic Growth Chamber, Lotus Field, and maybe even Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip if it fits your budget. You can take out the pain lands as they will not be so kind in Derevi. You can run less lands overall since theoretically you will end up with more lands in hand due to the bounce.
While we’re at it, let’s go ahead and slide Faeburrow Elder in there too...
Perfect. Now we have orbs AND a Derevi-style mana base that can play around them.

For those who're following the thread, Uzeep's questions were answered via Discord. However, the main thing I wanted to address in his comment is his mention of tutoring Shaman of Forgotten Ways. It is NEVER in our gameplan to tutor this, so we never care about where this card is until we've established Infinite Mana and an Outlet, only then do we look for kill loops which is also when the sky's the limit.
Due to his region certain cards were unavailable, so we also brewed up some changes to rectify this. His variation will be exactly the same with the following exceptions:

Hi epajula, I had considered Mikaeus but I had preferred some other cards. Now I'll try to reconsider it because it's very strong and it has a strong interaction with the deck. Thank you for the suggestions, especially for Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip and Phyrexian Tower, I'll put them into the deck for sure!! I'll take a look about your deck. Feel free to leave me your upvote if you like the deck ;-). Ps: I'll try to include also Ashnod's Altar to have another way to make the Food Chain combo.

You know have Vindictive Vampire, and Bastion of Remembrance as extra aristocrat piece. Have you considered Mikaeus, the Unhallowed? He combos off with Walking Ballista, Woodfall Primus, Triskelion, and Murderous Redcap. Also has excellent synergy with Kokusho, the Evening Star, which is also just a general "good-stuff" card that can keep you in the game. Other just great synergy cards I recommend are Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, and Phyrexian Tower. Vivien, Monsters' Advocate can outright win games if you are able to keep her for a turn with Prossh into Purphoros.

You're off to a great start! You've got a lot of key pieces already to make this a great build. I would work a little towards lowering the average cmc of the cards you cast and try to eliminate some of the higher cost cards. This helps to speed up the deck quite a bit! A few cards that I run in my Rhys deck that you could look into are,Burgeoning and Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip for insane ramp, Huatli, Radiant Champion helps a TON with card draw! Eladamri's Call and Sterling Grove are both decent tutors that can help get out some key pieces. Anointed Procession goes great alongside doubling season, primal vigor, and parallel lives, might as well run them all I say haha. Throne of the God-Pharaoh works wonders when you're not able to win through combat damage. Hopefully a few of those should help you out! If you wanna check out my deck for any other inspiration you're more than welcome! 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens).

I prefer the tap/untap shenanigans for now, but I could stand to add more Coastal Piracy effects. Generally, this deck doesn't need the combo to win, usually a decent hand side+Intruder Alarm win with a pseudo storm off. I really should grab Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip eventually, cheers.
