Destroyerbirb on Controlling the BUDGET

I am starting to like control. (Well, playing it not versing it.)

How about 4x Sphinx's Revelation. I know it's old school but I love it!

+1 from me!

unwucht on Omnath, Locus of Landfall

Updated.

Removed Valakut Exploration, Sphinx's Revelation, Ravages of War (grudingly), Phylath, World Sculptor (should have done so way before as it only cares about basic lands), Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Emeria Angel. Inserted Sakashima the Impostor, Teferi's Protection, Sakura-Tribe Scout, Birds of Paradise, Cloudshift and Titania, Protector of Argoth.

Now only a few land upgrades are missing. and I can go into further refinement after more playtesting.

Okay, more changes... Relatively large ones this time. Keeping track of them here in the comments in case I want to take any of it back.

Removed more mana-intensive buffs (Force of Virtue, Dictate of Heliod, Soulblade Djinn, Strongarm Monk), some token generators (Goblinslide, Launch the Fleet, Battle Screech, Docent of Perfection  Flip, Finale of Glory) and and some other cards (Sphinx's Revelation, Firemind's Research, Fumigate) to make room for new ones.

Removed a land for Wayfarer's Bauble and Mind Stone.

Added Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares and Muddle the Mixture.

Added Divine Visitation because it's really good on its own and makes Bishop of Wings better (I was wary of keeping Bishop of Wings with so little that synergized with it and without having tutors, at least now there's one more chance of drawing something that's good with it).

Added Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors, Isochron Scepter, Dramatic Reversal, Retraction Helix and Spellbook because after giving it some consideration, infinite combos are fair-ish and fun if I'm not using tutors.

Added Fireball and Comet Storm to make use of infinite mana, since there's now a couple ways to do that.

I'll probably temporarily proxy some of the more expensive cards, but it's gonna be so long before I'm playing games in person again that I might even be able to buy all of them before that happens, lol.

Adjustments are as follows:

Thoughts on this before we lock this in?

unwucht, My personal recommendation for your list is to remove the Sphinx's Revelation!

Very spicy. May I recommend Wilderness Reclamation? It's a decent card, especially in control. It may not fit your theme the way you want it to, though, and I will acknowledge that. Also, would Azor, the Lawbringer be a good card here? It has a neat effect on Etb, and is basically a Sphinx's Revelation on a stick when it attacks.

Otherwise, I really like the list. I've been thinking of experimenting with Bant Control lately, and I really like the way this deck portrays that.

unwucht, I completely understand and do agree. We have made so many adjustments lately and I know there are those who are trying their best to keep up with the build as well. I don’t want folks to buy these cards and they are cut the next time they revisit, which this happened with you and Ravages of War (keeping you in mind as well Cornelius_1216). Nahiri's Lithoforming and Valakut Exploration will stay put. I might do some testing with Scroll Rack on the side, but it won’t be anything permanent in the time being. Or rkjunior slot it in your build and give me feedback on it, if it’s a must add. I’m good with letting go of Sphinx's Revelation if it comes down to it. As for now we are riding off with what’s on the list.

Scroll Rack is great and we can easily shuffle our library with fetch lands. As of now I don’t have a cut for it, especially since I just put in Mystical Tutor. If necessary, I’d make the cut of either Nahiri's Lithoforming, Valakut Exploration or Sphinx's Revelation. What do you think rkjunior and unwucht? Or should we just wait on it?
