Serra's Sanctum Discussion

No I don't play Tiny Leaders, well, I tried it, but took the deck apart because apparently using all of black and whites tutors to find Darkest Hour and Blasting Station in my Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck was okay, but when I found out how to build a tiny leaders varient of Hermit Druid, no one wanted to play against me.
Here is how it works, Hermit Druid your deck into your yard, and flashback Memory's Journey, hitting Yawgmoth's Will. I usually also hit Gitaxian Probe too. If you have a lot of mana, you can even flashback Think Twice to draw a card, however I normally mill myself out and flashback Journey on upkeep so I don't care.
Cast Yawgmoth's Will, and start storming off from the yard, with Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, and all of the efficient mana rocks that net mana. Then cast any number of combos. I usually go for Regrowthing back a Dramatic Reversal, casting Isochron Scepter from the yard, imprinting it, making infinite mana, casting Laboratory Maniac from the yard, casting my commander (Thrasios, Triton Hero, with Tymna the Weaver as the partner), and drawing to win.
The deck obviously could win with just IsoRev combo, with the commander, and won averagely turn 3. With all of the tutors and ramp legal, without Force of Will for my opponents to respond as easily (with Swan Song, Flusterstorm, Spell Pierce, Counterspell, Pact of Negation they can, but not as easily), the format dulled to a cEDH format with less interaction. Really sucked too, because it had so much promise.
That was back when I played around 4 years ago. I started ~5 years ago, but stopped 3 years ago. Started back up in late Amonkhet where I saw a booster box (or bundle?) in a store and remembered it. Got back in and though I sold my standard playabled, ended up that a lot of my other cards were great in commander, like Serra's Sanctum and Earthcraft, which I thought were only cool little tid-bits of MTG history at the time.

Really, it would be around tier 4 this build. I imagine a better version going with a more consistent stax plan that happens to run a few key enchantments, instead of this could even be tier 2.5, but the commander would be all but a major part of the deck.
If you want a real enchantment-based build, use Earthcraft and Squirrel Nest, drop the Enchanted Evening/Aura Thief, Starfield of Nyx, Sigil of the Empty Throne, and Solemnity/Phyrexian Unlife/Solemnity/Decree of Silence. You should run Altar of the Brood as support for both the earthcraft combo and Opalescence/Parallax Wave.
The other drops you should have are cards like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach, because they are bad cards and shouldn't be run in any non-landfall deck, Cleansing Meditation because it is bad, and Skyshroud Claim. Pendrell Mists is too much mana for this deck to handle, as is Omniscience, despite its power in some decks.
Leyline of Anticipation is weak for its mana cost, and is abd draw, only semi useful when in openning hand, but even then it isn't great.
Land Tax is a bad card, honestly unless you are monowhite or in a deck that benefits from discarding cards, it isn't worth it. The thinning is the best it does, and a card in your deck that thins only is trash. If it is used to help you hit land drops, your deck is either A: Not in need of land, or B: Awfully built or was mulliganned poorly.
Now the next part is on what to add. I talked about dropping around 27 cards, so there is some room. I would drop around 3 lands at least as well, which leaves us with a clean 30 cards to add.
Now, we'll add the cards I previously talked about, Altar of the Brood, Earthcraft, and Squirrel Nest. These help you win the game after we dropped a lot of your previous wincons. Greater Auramancy is also a card I prior suggested, and helps stop a Nature's Claim kill you. 26 cards left to go.
The next is to replace the lands we dropped. You want mana fast, so you can empty your hand, and use Tuvasa to draw more cards, aiming to hit a real enchantress or tutor for one. This means two things, more tutors, and more ramp.
Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl, Overgrowth, and Fertile Ground help benefit Earthcraft when used to make more mana on combo turn, especially with an Opalescence out. Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Sol Ring, Chrome Mox, Mox Diamond, and Lotus Petal allow the deck to get more mana faster as well. This leaves 16 cards.
Teferi's Protection, Swan Song, Flusterstorm, Seal Away, Ravages of War, Force of Will, Nature's Claim, Armageddon, and Cast Out are efficient pieces of interaction I would suggest. This leaves 4 cards.
Nature's Chosen is a card I have found success in, and suggest you try it too. Enchanting a Tuvasa makes it another land in essence, and can untap a Serra's Sanctum, it is under the radar, so pick it up before all of the Emmara, Soul of the Accord players find out about it. That is it!
After looking through, the following lands are must drops, as they aren't good in nearly any deck:
They don't have a place in this deck.
Similarly, you should optimize your deck to get your colors more on curve, fetchlands being a major part of that. Wooded Foothills, Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Misty Rainforest, Scalding Tarn, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, and Marsh Flats are the missing ones in your colors. You can use them to fetch the shock/dual lands for colors, or basics for Back to Basics/Earthcraft.
Wooded Bastion, Flooded Grove, and Yavimaya Hollow should be dropped as well to fit them, as well as Brushland for Razorverge Thicket, Adarkar Wastes for City of Brass, Hinterland Harbor for Mana Confluence, Glacial Fortress for Exotic Orchard, and one of each basic because you have too many lands.
That's it. That would actually be a tier 3 enchantress deck, and doesn't stoop to just playing Tuvasa for colors for a stax-combo deck, running no enchantments.

DangoDaikazoku perfect play would be for 1v1 t1 Burgeoning with leyline of anticipation t2 you got 3 lands, drop crop rotation for Serra's Sanctum and Hesitation (basically gives you a free turn from your opponent t3 you have 5 lands (one being serra's sanctum) you have enough mana to tutor and play Lunar Force t4 play sun titan for counter lockdown targeting Lunar Force and Hesitation
decklist can look something like this. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/tuvasa-tier/?cb=1538582207

Here's some suggestion for cards that you may or may not like, btw :)

SynergyBuild Serra's Sanctum is playable in this build, you can easily blow up anything with Aura Shards and Enchanted Evening or a permanent Insurrection combo with Aura Thief. Not to mention the enchantment draw engine is pretty consistent while also having ramp from green, and strong blue cards Cyclonic Rift and River's Rebuke, and you can even run Training Grounds, Gaea's Cradle, and Heliod, God of the Sun for even more synergy.

I've noticed a few things going over the deck:
Song of the Dryads is missing here. It's almost $10 but it's that high up for a reason. A really good card.
You're running Bruna, Light of Alabaster with so few auras to work with. I'd take her out for another card that would perform well. Seeing as you got enchantresses and pillowfort, Luminarch Ascension and Hoofprints of the Stag would work well. Heliod, God of the Sun also works great since the tokens trigger Constellation (it's more powerful if you can spend on a Serra's Sanctum).
I hope these tips help. A lot of my other suggestions would've really busted your wallet.
