Lim-Dul's Vault Discussion
19 hours ago
I don't see why Mindcrank and a few other cards are in there if you aren't planning on milling people down, from your description it seems like thats not what you're going for, if you are, Traumatize. But I'd recommend sticking with lifedrain and good old fashion beating people over the head with lots of zombies. Phenax, God of Deception is cool, but don't try to do that and lifedrain zombies.
Look at Dralnu, Lich Lord because its amazing, same goes for Semblance Anvil, Possessed Skaab, Call to the Kindred, Ever After and Lim-Dul's Vault is broken. Obelisk of Urd is a tribal deck's best friend.
There are better wipes for this deck than Coastal Breach and you are a bit low on removal. Malicious Affliction and Dash Hopes are very good and fun. Get rid of Imprisoned in the Moon. Another thing you can do for removal is use Fleshbag Marauder, have it sac itself, then cast it from the graveyard. Stronghold Assassin too. Cauldron of Souls Can help you dodge board wipes and is a cool card to have. Perplex is fun too. And Mimic Vat
Arcane Adaptation is neat but there are much better cards that you can use. Black Market isn't as good as it seems because your mana empties before you can use it for anything good most of the time. Empty the Pits is very expensive, but if you can make it work, do it.
Your nonbasic lands are also really slow and you may need more lands in general, 36ish is about where you want to be. Look at Choked Estuary and Command Tower or cards that lower costs like Jet Medallion.
I know I've suggested to add a lot more cards than I suggested to take out, and I've never really even tried to give deck advice before, but I hope I at least gave you some ideas.

Cards that I don't like:
Darkwater Catacombs | In a turn 4/5 build, it's too slow. Basically useless in some situations and opposite of mana fixing
Fetid Pools | Enters tapped needs strong abilities, maybe turn 8 cycling would be good, but in a Turn 4/5 build, it's not a turn 1 through 4 land so shouldn't be in there
Great Furnace | I think you can fetch , a single on Turn 1 though 4 is terrible
Tolaria West | Great land, but what does it tutor for you that's a combo card, Mana Crypt is ok, but none of your combos are land based, I wouldn't run this. If you needed to fetch a specific land for a combo would be ok.
I would go down 1 net land to 36 as well.
Devastation Tide | Miracle is too random, want to control your spells not have them control you. And it's a sorcery, as an instant it would be ok.
Cryptic Command has a pretty High CMC with , it's instant so it's better than some of the other sorcery/creatures, but could be a problem. It's VERY good card though, I would keep it worth the hard casting cost.
Scroll Rack mana sponges, it's too random, and too slow for turn 4/5 deck
Tolaria West go down a land!
Tunnel Vision (when used to tutor) >> Mizzix's Mastery! (Downside is it misses Omniscience so need something it can hit to put a card from graveyard into hand, best would be a card like that with flashback) OR Tunnel Vision >> Yawgmoth's Will. If it discards a Past in Flames get a couple shots. I think Kess, Dissident Mage can cast the Overload cost from the graveyard for Mizzix's Mastery too if you do get it looking for the Yawgmoth's Will which then cast the Yawgmoth's Will.
Summary: Harder to tutor items (Enchantment) should be priorities, Necropotence or Omniscience. Kess, Dissident Mage let's you recast and pull another item in most cases to finish the combo Omniscience + Enter the Infinite, lots of tutors pull Show and Tell for you.
Capture of Jingzhou and Temporal Manipulation are good too, but not necessary, you're really just trying to combo win with Show and Tell + Omniscience + Enter the Infinite would focus on getting there.
Frantic Search is better if you have a way to recur-it, like a Nivix Guildmage, but it does give you more control on the discard. The problem arises when you only have 1 card in hand, becomes the same issue I'm sure you experience with the Scroll Rack.
Dreadbore could just be another tutor that pulls Hero's Downfall they do the same thing anyway (or a Yawgmoth's Will if you need to recast Hero's Downfall and have used Kess, Dissident Mage. And it's a sorcery (YUCK)
You need the Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots for Phage the Untouchable and Laboratory Maniac. You could lose the Swiftfoot Boots since you do have Artifact tutors, but I bet they are pulling mana sources not boots.
Temporal Extortion could be wasted spell, since i doubt your doing the extra damage, but in multi-player perhaps it may resolve due to politics.
Time Warp could come out too if needed, high CMC extra turns. Useful for mid-range play though.
Need to research a way to bring a card from graveyard to hand, if it has flashback, that would be AMAZING!

Ways to find your combo cards: Fabricate, Whir of Invention, Thirst for Knowledge, Lim-Dul's Vault, Demonic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Trinket Mage, Treasure Mage, Dig Through Time, Sphinx's Revelation, Ponder, Preordain, any Tezzeret walker.
Protection/Help: Scourglass, Roar of Reclamation, Merciless Eviction, Cyclonic Rift, Stoic Rebuttal, Supreme Verdict, Defense Grid, Orim's Chant is cool on Isochron, and also can be used as a way to make sure your last combo piece isn't countered/messed with before you combo.

You might want to see Win with Self Mill.
Lim-Dul's Vault is really helpful in my deck, and is probably one of my favorite tutors.

Hey, may I ask why don't you run more tutors? Like Fabricate, Gamble, Lim-Dul's Vault and maybe Vampiric Tutor if you have the budget instead of adding massive amounts of redundancy into your Sharuum combo; repeated pieces aren't that useful, and in my experience with the deck you are more likely to combo off with Nim Deathmantle/Eldrazi Displacer + Ashnod's Altar/Krark-Clan Ironworks than with Sharuum the Hegemon or Saheeli Rai. Maybe I'm just wrong too, idk.
Isn't Trading Post pretty slow? I think you're better off running Phyrexian Arena or maybe even Ob Nixilis Reignited for the card advantage, not sure if the recursion part in Trading Post is working out for you. The sac effect sure is nice in combination with your combo kill conditions, but idk. Another possible card for that slot is Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, maybe it might interest you. Ah, and Toxic Deluge is an awesome sweeper that I think would add a lot of resiliency to your deck.
Anyways, this is the list I currently use irl, I'd really appreciate if you could take a look at it and give me your insight! Good luck to us!

Oh, and there was one very memorable game that Lim-Dul's Vault made super easy.
