If you like jankier budget commanders Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant fits the bill.

As for this deck it looks really good for a budget deck.

Many of the instants you have will not pack enough punch to make them worth the slot. You want to focus on things you can re-use. For example, Vault Skyward looks like a good combat trick, but most of the time, people will be prepared for flyers. Better is Cobbled Wings or Fleetfeather Sandals, which last more than one turn, can be re-used if the creature dies, and can be reassigned to a blocking creature after the attack. Better still is Archetype of Imagination, that makes all your creatures fly and prevents your opponents' fliers from blocking. Or you can use something like Shadow Rift or something stratight up unblockable (Whispersilk Cloak) that will be more likely to get the damage through. If you are concerned about blocking fliers, Spidersilk Armor is a good bet, and affects your whole team on a permanent basis. For Commander, you're playing 4 other people. Each card needs to pack a big punch, so cards like Blustersquall & Cyclonic Rift are better because you can also cast them for their Overload effect.

Drop: Peema Outrider, Jolt, Cerulean Wisps, Noxious Revival, Vault Skyward, Triton Tactics, Reclaim, Ornamental Courage, Aerial Formation, Aquastrand Spider, Growth Spasm, Kozilek's Predator, Nest Invader, Keeper of Progenitus, Blisterpod, Parallel Lives, Gilder Bairn (You need to have ways to tap it, and I think it's too much work for the effect), Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant, Gnarlid Pack, Coiling Oracle, Transguild Promenade, 1x Forest, Scourge of Skola Vale

Add: Cobbled Wings, Elixir of Immortality, Spidersilk Armor, Viral Drake, Quest for Renewal, Overwhelming Stampede, Rogue's Passage

It's not a final cut, but I think you'll be within 5 or so of 100. At that point, you'll really need to look at your creatures and decide which ones you really want, and which ones are maybe second string players. Once you have a list and play a little, you'll know what you're weak to (do you see a lot of mill? Do you need more graveyard recursion? More flying?), and you can adjust from there. Good luck!

Dang it! I was hoping Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant would be on this list so that I could post my deck with her in command.

Omnath, Locus of Mana seems like a good investment. I'm currently trying to flip Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant to get mana flowing, and while that is more budget-friendly, it could be hard to pull off. I'll definitely consider that suggestion!

I agree that it needs a more consistent theme, magus_scroll, and I have added a few more legendary cards, such as Eight-and-a-Half-Tails and Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant, to it in response.

When I can, I'll be adding Boseiju, Who Shelters All to the deck so that Primal Surge won't be countered and I'll be buying and trading for more legendary cards in the future.

I appreciate the input and it has helped my deck win matches more consistently.
