Serra Ascendant Discussion

Lets see, You want protection for your general and board. Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Diplomatic Immunity, Mother of Runes/Giver of Runes, Counterspell. Swan Song, Drown in the Loch are usually the best in their field.
As far as good cards you want Serra Ascendant, Smothering Tithe, Reclamation Sage, Birds of Paradise, Rishkar's Expertise, Plaguecrafter, Guardian Project, Beast Whisperer, Narset, Parter of Veils, Triumph of the Hordes, Pathbreaker Ibex, Eldritch Evolution

Serra Ascendant boost your 1 mana curve, has lifelink and gets big with flying by mid game with a lifegain deck. A nice defensive wall is Gift of Immortality + Kami of False Hope. dont declare blockers, sacrifice Kami, all combat damage is negated, kami comes back, then opponent ends turn and gift of immortality goes back on kami. rinse and repeat

enpc. Thanks a million for the feedback- this is exactly what I was looking for.
I agree with your justifications on Serra Ascendant Grand Abolisher. I'll probably remove them and Angel's Grace to fit in the Spellseeker and Blood Pet - I already have Flash and Protean Hulk in the paper inventory. Now I have to find 1 more card to cut...lol
Also, thank you for showing me the Najeela deck. I think she is quickly becoming the top commander in the format. I am digesting your list now and will show it some love.

On the whole the list looks good. Little thing, I would look at runnign Swords to Plowshares over Path to Exile, a small amount of life given to your opponenets is generally better than more mana (in my opinion at least since you're not trying to win with damage).
As for your question about Serra Ascendant, I wouldn't bother running it, it doesn't add anyhting to the game plan. Hell, if you're after one drops, Mother of Runes would be better for the protection aspect (though I'm not saying to run her). On the topic of Grand Abolisher, I think he's not hte right fit here (and is generally too slow). You just end up telegraphing your plays too much trying to get him down just before combo.
While there is concern around the whole Flash Hulk ban thing going on, while its legal you probably should be running it. You're only needing to add space for Flash, Protean Hulk, Spellseeker and Blood Pet (and you have two easy cuts already).
As for infinite mana combos, They're also good but you just need to make sure they're consistent enough as a backup. If you do add them though, I would recommend swapping Path to Exile with Reality Shift instead of swords, as you can form an infinite mana loop to exile your opponents' libraries. And all you really need here is Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal.
As for infinite mana Thrasios, I run a build here which might give you some inspiration:

I figured this would be a little more competitive than what was mentioned in the rating here. I need to come by a few cards, obviously, for the drain/gain process. Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood + Felidar Sovereign + Karlov of the Ghost Council and maybe add a Serra Ascendant. Not sure what cards I'd remove for the listed ones I mentioned for curve purposes, but it's a work in progress.
