I love this deck! I have wanted to build a gate wincon deck since I discovered Maze's End . I suggest adding more normal ramp and then having Scapeshift , so you can sacrifice all your normal lands and replace them with gates. Maybe also run: Brain in a Jar , Leyline of Anticipation , Quicken , or Hypersonic Dragon so you can try and do your gate shenanigans on the previous players end step so that there's no time for them to react to the upkeep win from Maze's End .

Overall awesome deck! I plan to building something similar! Love that the price is also relatively low.

Finest Hour is probably better than Brave the Sands, so if we're trying to fit in Leyline of Anticipation and Privileged Position , it would be better to cut that instead. And it would probably be correct to cut New Horizons instead of Weirding Wood. A card is better than a +1/+1 counter.

You're going to want to add Alchemist's Refuge to the manabase to help you cast enchantments on your opponent's turns when you don't have Leyline of Anticipation. It might even be worth trying to play Vedalken Orrery to get these effects more often. There are a few flash enchantments you can play as well: Seal Away , Temporal Isolation , Slow Motion , Lawmage's Binding , Cast Out , Alexi's Cloak , Cho-Manno's Blessing , Eel Umbra , Jolrael's Favor , and Serpent Skin seem playable.

Another thing you might consider are replayable enchantments. The few I'm thinking of are Mana Bloom , Gossamer Chains , Flickering Ward , Broken Fall and Molting Skin . The latter three will also help you keep Tuvasa alive!

Speaking of keeping your commander alive, you might find it difficult with only Shield of the Oversoul, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, and Greater Auramancy. Furthermore, the latter two give shroud, which will make it hard to enchant Tuvasa afterwards! I'd consider trying to find more hexproof and indestructible effects even if they come from non-enchantment sources, such as Darksteel Plate . As for auras, there's Alpha Authority and Canopy Cover .

Finally, as just a neat card, you might consider playing Cloud Cover .

As for things to take out, the first thing I would do is take out Luminarch Ascension. The card is so powerful that people will just kill it or, more likely, YOU. It's a political disaster. I'd pull Abundant Growth because it's just not a very high-yield card. If you're looking for ramp and color-fixing, Carpet of Flowers is better because of how common blue is in Commander. Authority of the Consuls is probably not going to be very useful unless you know opponents are going to making large numbers of 1/1s for a combo. Finally, as much as I like it as a card, On Serra's Wings is not particularly excellent here. Unfortunately, that's just four cuts, and I gave a lot more suggestions. You'll just have to consider what effects you might want enough to include.

I would cut finest hour and weirding wood for Leyline of Anticipation and Privileged Position

Oh, also you NEED Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation a LOT of your cards are sorcery speed and most of them would be 20 TIMES BETTER if you could cast them at instant speed.

I think, in blue, that Leyline of Anticipation is almost strictly better than Vedalken Orrery

Since you're leaning towards casual and you already rock Murkfiend Liege and Seedborn Muse , I would consider Leyline of Anticipation , Vedalken Orrery , or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir . The loss of Prophet of Kruphix in Roon really hurts, but those suggestions coupled with the untappers can make your deck hella fun since you'll be able to turn your opponents' turns into yours :D

All around great deck, but I would want at least one or two counters, maybe Glen Elendra Archmage , since you can blink her to reset persist.

Solemnity seems to go against the deck. Yes you run Decree of Silence but the deck really only needs Solemnity for just that one card. It hurts both Parallax Wave and Tide. I think you really kinda want cards like Force Bubble in the deck also if you run the Decree of Solemnity combo as a redundant lockout. This deck also screams to run Wilderness Reclamation and Seedborn Muse in the deck as well. Consider Vernal Equinox as well. I know that Stax does NOT like giving all players the ability to do things, however Vernal gives you the ability to play your stax at instant speed. Opponent casts commander and passes turn, flash in Song of Dryads. etc...

Leyline of Anticipation would also be a good fit for this deck

Bloodline Necromancer + Ashnod's Altar + Phyrexian Altar is not infinite by itself just for other to know. I think you're using Lifeline for the combo too. That also requires all your spells having flash. Which I think is why you have Leyline of Anticipation .
