4 colors and no Arcum's Astrolabe ? That's really greedy of you.

If you go a little heavier on the black, you could run Evincar's Justice which is both a board wipe and a win con as well as Thorn of the Black Rose in order to get your combo going.

I don't quite understand why your deck is only running one Mnemonic Wall when it's essential to the deck and you can't tutor it.

Your deck feels pretty weak to removal that exiles, such as Unmake or Ob Nixilis's Cruelty , to non-elf swarm tactics (namely, goblins and slivers) and to Thorn of the Black Rose and Palace Sentinels decks. I'm not sure how you fare against burn either, as it feels like you'll probably lose pre-board and your best shot at winning post board is getting Ephemerate + Hallow + Mnemonic Wall which is unlikely to happen twice in a row.

Overall, this feels like Teachings Tron that doesn't play the Urza lands in order to play Skred effectively but lacking the access to the Urza lands means you can't make good use of Mystical Teachings as you're not floating in a pool of mana. You do, however, get rid of the Crop Rotation + Expedition Map + Prophetic Prism package that is essential to playing Tron, which leaves more slots open but I'm a bit skeptical still.

Good call on the Palace Sentinels , I removed the Ancient Den for it.
As for adding flicker spells, I'm gonna need to simmer on that for a bit because as sweet as Ephemerate and the others look, I'm not quite sure whether it's really necessary for this deck.

Hey man! This is Phunlife from XMage. I've been really busy as of late so I've just got to looking at this. I did have it saved though so I would remember to come back and look at it.

Overall, looks good! I do have a couple suggestions for the sideboard though, especially if you want this to compete against top tiers -

I don't understand what exactly Hallow is for or what matchup it could be good in - maybe Tron's Rolling Thunder ? But even so, it feels like a very narrow sideboard card, and I think it could be cut. Maybe Prismatic Strands would be of interest to protect against Burn, or Lone Missionary as additional life gain as well as a body on the field. But Hallow just overall seems like it could be useful in a handful of situations to me.

With both Orzhov Pestilence and Tron on the rise, I'd look into Palace Sentinels as a 2-of in the sideboard. Both of those decks can easily take you to the late game, and without a card advantage engine I think you're lost against them. It's especially good against Orzhov if you can steal the Monarch from them too :D.

Afterlife is a really good removal for white so you might want to add it, Angelic Purge too.

Battle Screech , Captain's Call give you more of a swarm strategy without costing too much, i would add screech to the main.

Emerge Unscathed gets you 2 triggers costing only 1cc and protection, Test of Faith is a neat combat trick for killing pretty much any early creature and giving you a neat early clock as well as triggering and saving your cmdr, Dawn Charm , Benevolent Bodyguard , Standard Bearer give you protection to every creature and Palace Sentinels gives you a bit much needed card draw in white.

thats all i got.

Lots of flickering Spellstutter Sprite and the like looks dope. Is splashing black for Blood Seeker necessary? Maybe include Palace Sentinels for monarchy card draw?

This is a really interesting deck! Here are some ideas I have that I think would make the deck run better:

Hope this is helpful!

@hkhssweiss: All right. I suppose I can deal w/ those two; at least they're better than (Insert Boros Partner Duo from Battlebond.). That said; It'll be nuts if I can switch the 99 to 98. If Aurelia is to be removed from the equation, I wonder how these two can be useful for a Value Town/Stax/Prison Deck. Oh, and more questions; should you choose to accept them:

  1. How useful/not useful as a Wincon is Barren Glory + Oblivion Ring + Apocalypse? Does Grand Abolisher improve on this even somewhat?

  2. As I'm using Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric, what cards do you think would work well w/ them in a cEDH environment? I currently have Possibility Storm + Knowledge Pool, but I believe I can think of better while lowering CMC.

  3. Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan is a great combo here; even after Mass Land Destruction. Should these stay for their use of Mass Recursion?

  4. Tamiyo's Journal + Thraben Inspector seems Sketchy for a combo; though Inspector seems useful on his own; but what card to use if Tamiyo's Journal is too much? I mean ALL the Artifact Tutors seem too hefty; & nobody likes them in the slightest, even in Boros...

  5. What do you think of the following?: Panharmonicon/Strionic Resonator (Doubling ETB/CIP effects seems great here...), Prototype Portal + Ugin's Nexus/Lotus Petal (Infinite Turns is rarely thought about, but I dunno about Petal on its own...), Aegis of the Gods (I probably am the only one here who thinks this is good...), Paradox Engine (What? I don't even run Isochron Scepter for something Ugin's Nexus can do better.), Farrelite Priest (Err... Better than Gold Myr? At least has a Dork...), Priest of Urabrask (ETB w/ Red's idea of Dark Ritual is always a good thing.), Spirit of the Labyrinth (IMO, the only thing Boros has to the Chains of "What the Hell is your name you friggen n00b! God..."), Palace Sentinels (Monarch is great, but I want to ask: Does Flickering or even Recurring them automatically make another, currently the Monarch give the role to me again? If not, this is a cut.), Goblin Chainwhirler (Damaging foes is great & all; all while NOT targeting them, but is this still worth it?), Grafdigger's Cage/Ashes of the Abhorrent (Some of the best of this deck. But it also locksdown Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan in some ways. Chop it?), Resplendent Mentor (Most o the creatures here are anyway, but since you Mentioned Treasonous Ogre, why would one think he's better than Priest of Urabrask? Gaining life will only make you a primary target for Dethroned...), Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (7 Drop, & powerful as a staple. Is she worth keeping though?), &... that's it I guess... I wonder what your thoughts on this is; as I need to drop to less than CMC 2 anyway... Now if you don't mind, I'm Switching Commanders (Again...). Now I have 98 problems to deal with...
