Dear Karzalar

Akroma's Memorial - Well don't I feel stupid, it really is an obvious card to use for a deck like this isn't it.

Omnath, Locus of Mana - I only just looked up the ruling for him plus Kruphix, God of Horizons I had assumed that my commander's effect would take priority but apparently not, you were completely correct thanks!

Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth - Unfortunately without both cards on the field neither does anything useful as far as I can tell and I'm not going to throw out other cards to make room for the fetches needed to make it happen

Pristine Talisman - I'll think about it, I'm just not sure what I would drop for it.

Primal surge wincon, but no Akroma's Memorial?

Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith for Infinite Mana!

Omnath, Locus of Mana for keeping the green mana on him, and even if he dies, after that Kruphix takes it.

Pristine Talisman maybe?

ventergh on Into the Roil

I'm a fan! This is the Noyan list that matches the playstyle I am looking for the most. I have a few questions though.

You have a few quite narrow answers. Do these kinds of threats and situations come up often enough in general to warrant a slot or are they just a meta call for you? For example, Hushwing Gryff, Submerge, Hallowed Moonlight, Mental Misstep, Squelch. I'm also on the fence about Teferi's Response but I can see the blowouts it can create.

Is Pristine Talisman's little life gain worth it over something more efficient? Would you consider Gift of Estates a suitable budget replacement for Tithe or Wayfarer?

Is Cataclysmic Gearhulk strong enough compared to other boardwipes? Flashing it in with Scout's Warning must be fun, but I feel like letting my opponents choose ruins the card.

Aside from regular counterspells, are Sacred Ground and Teferi's Response enough protection for your lands? Asking because your mtgsalvation list had Terra Eternal, Trade Routes and Mother of Runes as well.

One last question, despite Deep Analysis being pure value, does the sorcery speed not mess with you too much?

Thanks!

This list could use another mana rock or two. I definitely suggest Pristine Talisman as a synergistic way to both ramp and trigger your commander.

Sunscorch Regent is incredible in this list since its ability triggers often in a multiplayer setting, and the lifegain will make Karlov explode in size quickly.

Tymna the Weaver turns all that extra life into lots of card draw, and obviously also takes advantage of a multiplayer setting.

Nyx-Fleece Ram is quite a decent blocker in the early game while also buffering your life total and consistently triggering Karlov.

I second the suggestion of adding Drana's Emissary; the more life pings you stack, the more cumulative the bonuses.

Radiant Fountain is a land with the cheap effect of gaining a life when it enters.

Well of Lost Dreams is another card advantage engine that will always keep your hand refilled so long as you keep gaining life.

Wall of Reverence is similar to Nyx-Fleece Ram in that it is a wall that consistently gains you life.

Rogue's Passage should be included in the case that your commander gets so big that he can just kill off someone with straight commander damage.

When you want to build around a theme like life gain it helps to look at your enablers (cards that help do the theme like Pristine Talisman) and payoff cards (cards that reward you for doing that that theme like Chalice of Life  Flip). At the moment you have a lot of enablers, but not much in the way of payoff. If you can, Id look into more payoff cards like Sanguine Bond such that your deck can reward you for gaining life more reliably.
