Yacherobi,

Just like Buildster said, deck thinning is a good incentive. However, the biggest reason to run fetches is that they pair super well with Scroll Rack. you can shuffle away the bad cards that were in your hand to find new ones next turn.

Mortlocke i like it, it makes turn 1 - 4 more consistent.. I feel it's way over priced and hyped, so ill have to see what the price is after a while,but it works well in this deck. Would it be better than Scroll Rack?

Mortlocke thanks for the response.

Your understanding of how the deck runs is spot on. Consistency has been the main focus here lately, and it's pretty consistent winning turn 4 doing what you stated. Obviously without much interaction things go well lol. With the updated list there still needs to be 100 game record made, or something around that to see what exactly it does.

I was aware of Tendrils it had been in the deck before. I forget why It got removed. Probably for more speed, who knows lol, but there is 1 spot open and I'll keep it in mind if Scroll Rack doesn't pan out. Like always I appreciate pointing things out whether I would have known about them or not.

Thank you for the links, I will look into them. As always thank you for the help.

Alright here are a few things I notice that will help tune up the deck to help speed it up, as well as improve consistency overall.

Cards to remove-

Evolving Wilds

Tearamorphic Expanse

Rocky Tar Pits

Tapped lands are the bane of any deck as far as speed goes. Switching these out for lands that enter untapped will speed things up as well as provide better consistency for color fixing. If you are going to include a tapped land make sure it provides insane value (Valakut for example, or Mosswort Bridge in big creature heavy decks) so the drawback of the ETB tapped is worth it in the long run.

Nesting Dragon- Not a bad card but Dragonmaster Outcast is cheaper and will provide you with more consistency in the mid to late game.

Scroll Rack- A good card, but you have no real way to abuse it, and it is really nothing more than a replacement effect since your top deck manipulation is based off of high CMC creatures. Damnable Pact would provide you with a better way to refill your hand, and you seem to havew enough lifegain scattered through out to offset the life loss.

The Mending of Dominaria- It is a high CMC card that is fairly easy to remove, keeping you from getting the third trigger off and negating the power of the card... I would suggest Abundance since you are running Sylvan Library. This will allow you to replace the downside of Sylvan Library (pay 4 life to draw extra cards) and help you sculpt your hand for what you need in the moment. (Basically those two cards together read- At the beginning of your up keep draw three cards, naming land or non land for each draw. It is an awesome replacement effect need to be running Abundance)

Ranger's Path- It costs 4, and the lands enter tapped. You have a decent enough ramp package going already and i don't feel like you need the redundancy here. I would suggest adding Blasphemous Act or Black Sun's Zenith to give you another board wipe since you are running slightly light on those. Both are good cards just depends on which style you might need... Black suns will get around indestructible, while Blasphemous will normally only cost you one mana. Or run both if you play against mainly casual (ie big creature) decks.

The only other big thing i notice is a lack of single target interaction for Artifacts and Enchantments. Cards like Vandalblast, By Force, Force of Vigor, Return to Nature, and even Caustic Caterpillar are great removal if you find yourself wanting to increase your interaction.

Overall I dig the deck for what you are going for. Let me know if you have any questions about my suggestions are anything overall. Hope this helps some

Mortlocke The primer isn't updated but I'd bring up the past and say the deck is now pretty close to consistent as my knowledge can make it. Scroll Rack is a test and the only slot that is being tested for the right card. Well and Winding Canyons I still don't know what i think about it, but thought if someone tries to remove thrumming stone i could cast a shadowborn to trigger in response

What do you think so far? Also what would i have to do to get this page fixed up like some other primers?

ClockworkSwordfish Scroll Rack has never been reprinted, except as a promo version in Commander's Arsenal and in Kaladesh Inventions. Being in Commander Legends will be a meaningful reprint that is likely to lower the general price.

What confuses me a bit is that Scroll Rack was added to "The List" of cards that can occasionally show up as the "token card slot" in booster products. At first I had marked this list down as the Reserved List 2.0.

You can already see on MTGGoldfish that the Commander Legends reprint is valued around 30$ (whereas the original from Tempest is 70$ and used to be 85+$) and it has not settled yet - Link.

With Scroll Rack being reprinted in Commander Legends, it will finally be within my price range, which is nice, and I also have decided to continue my trend of making Phyrexianized versions of existing cards, so here is the result of my efforts:

Phyrexian Archivist Show

I increased the initial casting cost of the card, because it is now a creature, I kept the activation cost for the ability the same, albeit slightly different.

What does everyone else think of this card? Do you like it?

I'd love to know more what you see the lane of the deck to be. That would help provide more strategic recommendations. Looking at the list, I see a lot of 'good stuff' cards, but not always seeing how they all are intended to work together. That could just be me. There is the Laboratory Maniac and you do have a few ways to increase or multiple your draws...

While I'm not recommending specific ones of these cards, I see Damia, Sage of Stone and try to build around with cards that are impacted by the number of cards in your hand and building that number up. In my own build once upon a time, I aimed to draw more where I could and hold onto those cards. You have a Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower, but also having a free Spellbook might be in order.

I see the snow-covered lands, but not much interaction with them. A Scrying Sheets or Sunstone seem in order.

There are many ways to be a little hand hate bear if you want. Noetic Scales can be fun in this way or Locust Miser. Narset, Parter of Veils plays in well to this too.

As far as cards in your hand interaction, I'll throw out a bunch, but with no particular synergy in mind aside from cards in hand. You might have enough green for Phosphorescent Feast. If your constantly overfilling your hand, Scroll Rack would give you some major filtering. Credit Voucher also does this, but isn't repeatable. Jushi Apprentice  Flip is one way you can overfill your hand in Damia. Sea Gate Restoration  Flip can come in as an untapped land, but if you are rolling in mana, it can fill that hand even more. You are also ramping really hard and just one of the draw X spells probably has a place here. There are, of course, a number of cards that have power/toughness equal to your cards in hand if you wanted to go that route. Ominous Seas is a card you'll trigger a lot in Damia.

No Cyclonic Rift? Some form of graveyard hate is probably warranted, even if just, especially dropping a swamp for Bojuka Bog. You've got 3 sorcery tutors, but I'd slot one out for Vampiric Tutor.

I've been thinking about rebuilding Damia myself as mill deck now that there is so much more support for it.
