Hour of Promise
Search your library for up to two land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library. Then if you control three or more Deserts, create two 2/2 black Zombie creature tokens. With the Hekma breached and its protection removed, the deserts swept in.
Hour of Promise Discussion

Since theme is important for the deck, maybe swap out Eel Umbra for Steel of the Godhead ? The flash is nice but Steel does more and contributes more towards W/U devotion as well. Hour of Promise kind of fits theme plus provides ramp/color fixing/searches for those critical utility lands. Cool theme. I like seeing people post these kinds of decks.

Eric8828 this was a deck built mostly from what I had, aside from a few fetch lands and I plan on doing some playtesting before I add or remove any cards, also I have enough land tutors Hour of Promise , Tempt with Discovery and Pir's Whim that I didn't really feel a need for Realms Uncharted

Frank_Glascock- For me the cut will most likely be either Hour of Promise or Asceticism . Shaman of Forgotten Ways has done work for me against dedicated lifegain decks in the past, so as a preference I'm keeping it in for now. More experience with the deck might change my mind later, but to each his own meta ;)

I understand that. Are we talking blue players using counterspells, or other types of control. If you're in a heavy blue meta, you could consider running Carpet of Flowers as a ramp option. (Sorry, guess that's out of budget...)
Aside from the suggestions I mentioned, there are other budget options that are a bit slower, but can still help out. Cards like Walking Atlas , Skyshroud Ranger , Llanowar Scout , and Sakura-Tribe Scout can get you extra land drops. They might be worth running over some of the 4 CMC land-tutor spells, to help out your curve a little. Entirely up to you, though. Hour of Promise is strong, as it let's you get any two lands; not restricted to basics.

?????????? OUT FOR Elvish Reclaimer
3 weeks ago
VexenX- Oh Elvish Reclaimer is very much worth it in this deck. It has synergy alongside Titania, Protector of Argoth which makes Crucible and Excavator better (as well as Wrenn and Six funnily enough). Yes, the land comes into play tapped, but fetching up any utility land at instant speed right before our turn starts is big game, especially if your early ramp spells have only found you basics like many of them do. Some people have been comparing it to Knight of the Reliquary , which I think we would very much be running in this deck if the color identity matched up. The ability costs mana yes, but costing only 1 mana means we can throw it out there in a convenient turn and start getting value when we have the mana to spare. I personally will be replacing Hour of Promise for this card just to lower my curve and because they both bring the lands out tapped, but I'd rather not spend my whole turn doing that. I'd rather just play a Cultivate or something and hold up 2 mana to get a land at my opponent's endstep.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .
One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?
