You know, technically speaking, you don't need black for Hermit Druid, you can flip your deck, flashback Memory's Journey to put a Thassa's Oracle on top, cast it the following turn, and win!

You can also use Think Twice or Deep Analysis (if you put two cards on top with Journey). It'd be a heck of a way to win in a real game competitively, but it is a technical win!

Hey, nice budget version of Scion.

Open the Armory can help as it's a budget tutor to get a protection equipment or aura. Memory's Journey lets you choose any three Dragons in your graveyard and put them back into your library to then become those Dragons again with Scion. It's also some protection at instant speed from having Dragons in your graveyard being exiled by an opponent. Can do this twice because Journey has flashback.

Faeburrow Elder can tap for two mana (green and white), but if you have other colored permanents on the battlefield then it can tap for that color of mana also. With Scion on the battlefield it can tap for five mana (one of each color). Paradise Druid is a two drop who can tap for any color of mana and it has hexproof protection as long as it's not tapped.

For six colorless mana Cascading Cataracts can cast Scion. It helps a lot with a budget manabase when you don't have ideal color fixing. Exotic Orchard is another budget Rainbow land which is excellent in mutiplayer Commander when your opponents will have lands on the battlefield that can make many different colors. Unclaimed Territory is Dragon tribal Rainbow land. It's worth adding Crop Rotation since it can tutor for a Rainbow land especially if you add Cataracts.

When Savage Ventmaw attacks it makes six mana and you can use this mana to activate Scion three times before the end of combat. Dragon Tyrant is another win condition Dragon. After pumping with Moldensteel turn Scion into Tyrant and kill with double strike Commander damage. Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner is another Dragon who has hexproof.

Some cards to consider cutting:

  • Transguild Promenade
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Navigator's Compass
  • Oasis Ritualist
  • Quirion Elves
  • Strider Harness
  • Shielding Plax
  • Mage's Guile
  • Chromanticore

Good luck with your deck.

Sungod It's an alternative way to empty the library to win with Thassa's Oracle

You need one of the exile library card, Foresight for example, you cascade into it and then cast to exile lands/counterspells. Then you cascade into Timetwister or Memory's Journey to shuffle Foresight back to the library. You then cascade until you hit Foresight to exile more cards. Next, cascade into Noxious Revival to put Timetwister or Memory's Journey on top of the library so you can cascade into it shuffling Foresight and Noxious Revival back, the exiled cards stay exiled. You repeat until you have all cards played or exiled, then cascade into Thassa's Oracle

You definitely need more big mana sinks to abuse the infinite mana. You have some cards like that like Helix Pinnacle and Walking Ballista but you could stand to abuse cards like Staff of Domination and Thrasios, Triton Hero to draw your deck at instant speed and win with Thassa's Oracle with countermagic backup at the ready. Cards that have a similar "I Win" the game effect as a result of having no Library : Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries are cards to consider.

If thats the route you want to take Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo can go infinite with colorless mana unless you have a colored mana rock or mana dork at the ready. It also helps win at instant speed or at worse cast a number of big spells in a turn.

Another infinite combo to consider would be Grim Monolith + Power Artifact. But since this isnt an artifact based deck Power Artifact would be a dead draw. A more fitting card to combo with would be Nyxbloom Ancient. It can go infinite with Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith.

These combos are cool and all but unless you have a big X spell like Blue Sun's Zenith or Stroke of Genius to have players draw their deck, you will need your fair share of tutors. The list currently has alot of the major ones but one I would include would be Natural Order in the place of Tooth and Nail . If you are going to run some amount of expensive green fatties like for example, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger its better to cheat it out of the deck than expend more resources over the course of turns to cast them naturally.

Aside from counters, I am not seeing much in the way of disruption in your creature base. Cards like the aforementioned Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger or similar creatures with back breaking effects could see some consideration in the top end of the deck.

I would also recommend some more recursion spells. Cards like Gaea's Blessing and Memory's Journey can bring back combo pieces you otherwise lost into the deck. Eternal Witness is the all-star of the category but Regrowth like effects should have some slots in the deck if you plan to go all in on combo.

Some cards I feel could be cut from the deck could be Birthing Pod and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath. Pod cares alot about the CMC of your deck and as it stands its very lopsided. As for Uro, I feel he will be under utilized in this list. As a 6/6 for 3 with those abilities it is amazing, however, exiling cards and potential combo pieces wouldn't be in your best interest if you plan to win with noncombat shenanigans . Uro would just be a 3 mana explore with upside and that might not be enough for what you are trying to do here.

I am probably missing some cards that are not coming to mind at the moment. I'll comment again with other cards once they come to mind.

There isn't a good replacement for Timetwister, combo wise Memory's Journey does the same; refill wise you can use Windfall/Wheel of Fortune/Day's Undoing for budget.

Any tutor can replace Imperial Seal: Sterling Grove, Diabolic Intent, Wishclaw Talisman, Scheming Symmetry.

oo7x7oo, ofcourse it's a totally viable option. But after some debating in the FSFC discord we came to this conclusion (pinned by Shaper):

We run Timetwister because it is a powerful card on its own and is worth the slot regardless if were trying to win by loops. It also acts as a quasi win con as you are able to loop various spells if other options get exiled or removed. hence making it a strong card and an include in the deck.

Memory's Journey on its own does not have a high enough power level to make the cut. Yes it can act as a quasi win condition but is much weaker than other options. You are better off adding a different win condition such as Goblin Bombardment or add the next best value card because on average a high quality card will be far more useful and less dead in your hand compared to Memory's Journey.

It also hurt me to not be able to use twister loops anymore, but the times I had Goblin Bombardment in the last 30 cards of my deck, it made me really happy.

Milkspy I disagree with your Memory's Journey comment. It is a very good answer to opponent's graveyard strategy and disruption to tutors that search to top of library, now it can even be an answer to Thassa's Oracle consultation if 2 blue devotion is all they have. Entomb works great with it, too.
