Pristine Talisman Discussion

Hero's Blade is fantastic, since it'll re-equip when Sram inevitably gets removed by something.
Trailblazer's Boots are a better cheap equip than say Trusty Machete because even if it costs one more to drop, it'll consistently read as 'unblockable'. Prowler's Helm is a similar budget option but there are walls that get dropped more often:P.
Cultivator's Caravan is just wasteful budget when you can use Darksteel Ingot for an indestructible version, or Manalith for a way cheaper option(or, if you don't care about making white mana, Pristine Talisman will gain you life. Tooth of Ramos also gives you a pocket two mana)
Always good to see economical decks :D

Some other hug cards are Ghirapur Orrery and Horn of Greed, but it's better when you help others while helping yourself more. For this reason I suggest Selvala, Explorer Returned and Tempt with Discovery, because the effect is asymetrical.
Finally I made a stealing deck myself but in Temur colors, feel free to check it out

Thank you so much! I decided to swap Pristine Talisman for Dimir Signet, because I think I'm fine on white mana for now. As for Authority of the Consuls, I had it in there originally, but I felt what it provided wasn't really needed.

While your goal is to make a slow game until you hit your wincons, I think your mana needs some more work. For this reason I'd recommend playing the signets Orzhov Signet, Dimir Signet and Azorius Signet.
If you're looking for having stuff ETB tapped, Authority of the Consuls is a good card and grants a life boost.
As to what to cut, Pristine Talisman looks cute, but I think you have enough other ways to gain life that replacing it for a signet for example won't hurt the deck.

I actually won a game off not having a Sol Ring and I feel ritually bound not to put one in at this point.

Nice deck! Oloro was also my first commander and the deck that I have worked on the most. A few suggestions:
Privileged Position's color identity is White/Green, so you may not run it in an Esper Commander deck.
Solitary Confinement is another Glacial Chasm, and can you give those one or two turns that you need to activate your infinite combo, or trigger Felidar Sovereign/Test of Endurance. Oloro and the aforementioned Well of Lost Dreams will keep your hand stocked so that you can keep the Confinement in play.
Venser's Journal is a pet card of mine for Oloro. It's not game-breaking, but it synergizes very well with the Well (pun intended) and gives a decent life boost every turn. Worth considering, but there are much better things to run.
Necropotence is begging for a spot here. Chances are you're already looking for one but if you're not, then do. Oloro will keep it from killing you, and if you NEED to draw into your wincon, paying half your life total is usually enough to hit it. The BBB mana cost is a little difficult to hit, but very worth it to keep your hand continuously stocked.
Overall, you have a very solid deck! +1

Are you intending to keep it very low budget? If that's the case, that's fine.
Some budget suggestions :
Cathars' Crusade to make every creature bigger;
Gifted Aetherborn is a Vampire Nighthawk for one mana less, without flying.
Pristine Talisman because gaining life when tapping for mana is the best of both worlds.

- your and my suggestions for flyers
Regarding flyers, here are some good draws into bant. Not sure what the rest of the payoff is for green (maybe you grab cards like Glare of Subdual, Sylvan Library, Survival of the Fittest, Edric, Spymaster of Trest or big green beaters), but I figured we should enable that color combo a bit more while staying on-theme:
- Coldsteel Heart
- Fellwar Stone
- Mind Stone
- Pristine Talisman (though this might be keepable for drain. Maybe we will put it back in later)
- Quirion Elves
- Urborg Elf
- Utopia Tree
- Beastcaller Savant
- Channeler Initiate
- Sylvan Caryatid
- Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician (this should have been removed before this update)
- The tempting cards. I mentioned this before, but we should assume that our playgroup isnt stupid enough to fall for these traps.
- Obelisk of Urd (no real tribal support will be possible it seems)
Regarding blink: I would be fine with that, but I think it would be better to see if there's room once we start trimming down the cube.
Green is looking pretty underpowered right now (no real big threats, not much utility. we should fix that)
