RNR_Gaming I actual had Mother of Runes Hushbringer and Serra Ascendant before in deck but had to cut off something for space because i was really worried about card drawning so that's why i included cards like Skullclamp The Immortal Sun and Mangara, the Diplomat. I will add maybeboard soon.

Mother of Runes is good for some redundancy and can help protect against exile effects or push through damage. I've actually enjoyed Hushbringer - made this korvald player a bit salty. Karn, the Great Creator - can be a combo piece or help you get key artifacts out of exile. Serra Ascendant - helps with early game pressure. Lastly, Ranger-Captain of Eos is a little guy Tutor with built in silence :)

Blood Artist is a staple in anything where you want things to die. Theres also the payoff for soul sisters Serra Ascendant which is just generically good in commander. Free sac outlets are your best friend Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder do the trick and provide decent value. You're gunna have a rough time finding removal more efficient than Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares. Lastly, though it's a bit gimmicky and everyone has done it Sanguine Bond with Exquisite Blood is an easy way to end things if you're into that.

That is a good point, RNR_Gaming and although I don't often use the top in conjunction with the Citadel (due to being mana starved) it does enough work in the early game to justify its slot. I switched out Cruel Tutor (redundant) and Personal Tutor (used only to tutor another tutor) for Reshape and Whir of Invention. I also switched Goldnight Redeemer (situational gains and high cost) for Serra Ascendant and Scroll Rack (budget and clunkiness) for Rhystic Study. Does that seem wise to you? I didn't want Remora because it is too mana hungry, and I passed on Necropotence because the Citadel is supposed to go off on a single turn.

RNR_Gaming You have some interesting suggestions, but I don't quite know if they are what the deck is looking for. The main use of Whir of Invention and Reshape would be to tutor for the Citadel, but at the cost of 7 or 8 mana, in a deck that already struggles to produce 6. Additionally, in a deck that's main source of mana is in artifacts, the improvise ability on Whir doesn't actually reduce the cost. They are incredibly helpful in the scenario that you do have enough mana but no Citadel. I will definitely consider them as substitutes for some of the other tutors. Ad Nauseam feels redundant to the Citadel, although it does not allow you to do the lifegain rituals, so I don't think it is a good fit. Serra Ascendant definitely is a good fit though. As for the draw engines, I am unsure how to feel. I think they would make good budget substitutes for Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top.

So, I'm a huge fan of Whir of Invention and Reshape for Bolas's Citadel lines. Additionally, lowering your curve with aggressively costed high impact beaters like Serra Ascendant could help you run things like Ad Nauseam with maybe Angel's Grace to be extra degenerate and just rip through your deck. Necropotence, Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora cannot be beat when it comes to draw engines.

Hey!

NOICE.

I would consider Tajic, Legion's Edge and Serra Ascendant and Metallic Mimic as options, though they are just ideas!
