Talisman of Hierarchy Discussion
2 days ago
Wrath of God, Rest in Peace and Merciless Eviction all seem like cards that should definitely be in here. We would also definitely recommend some more ramp. An EDH deck without Sol Ring is almost unheard of. For your colour combination it would also be recommended to add Orzhov Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy and Orzhov Locket. Then there is draw options. Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections, Greed all come to mind.
Hope this helps.

PhantomHuscarl Thanks for your commendation and suggestions!
Here're some of my reasonings for the suggestions you've raised above:
Soothsaying - This card has been on my KIV list but I always end up cutting it to make room for other cards. The Shuffle effect is good. However, I'm not a fan of having to pay a lot of mana for the top of library manipulation. If you're building this deck, do test it out and let me know how it goes.
Necropotence - If you noticed, I don't play that many card draws in the deck. Much of the slots are dedicated to tutors and top of library manipulation. We also don't want to draw into the extra turn spells as we've limited ways to return them to top of library.
Talisman of Hierarchy - Good call. I haven't updated the ramp package recently and should really get a copy of this and add it into the deck!
Imperial Seal - It's listed in my Too Poor to Afford category in my Maybeboard. Always wanted to get my hands on one but my wallet says otherwise.
Aminatou, the Fateshifter - This is a good planeswalker that fits the theme of my deck very well. However, she needs to stick around longer to accrue value to justify her spot in the deck. With a deck that's creatureless except for the Commander, I've no means to protect Aminatou from combat damages.
The other PWs I play, are slightly different. Liliana is used to manipulate cards to the top of the library twice (usually taking 2 extra turns while I set up the wincon/combo pieces). Tezzeret is an artifact tutor that has served his purpose once he fetches the toy I need.
Keep your suggestions and discussions coming!

Hello there! I really love your deck, looks really fun to play and out of the ordinary EDH schemes!
Anyway, i'm here to ask you about some cards that i think will just be fine in this kind of deck.
Soothsaying Seems really on topic with it, you know, it's odd, it's a 1 mana drop and let you Shuffle and manipulate the topdeck. Talking about Enchantments, i also think Necropotence can be a thing. You know, you don't draw, but Yennett trigger in combat and does what she have to. The new Talisman of Hierarchy Seems also Good for mana Balance. I know it's veeeery expensive, but you also have Imperial Seal for topdeck tutor. Also, if you have the Isochron Scepter gaving Dramatic Reversal can also be good, for a infinite mana-combo that can be used to pull out something with Soothsaying . In the end, Aminatou, the Fateshifter could also be a nice add for topdeck manipulation and blink things like Liliana Vess and Tezzeret the Seeker for other tutors and Mana Vault or Grim Monolith for untap.
Cheers and keep up the good work!

It seems there are many cards in here that just don't do much, as well as there being naught in terms of basic essentials for a commander deck.
As for creatures:
Dewdrop Spy , Dream Thief , Faerie Duelist , Faerie Seer , Final-Sting Faerie , Hypnotic Sprite , Latchkey Faerie , Nightshade Schemers , Pestermite , Shinechaser , Surveilling Sprite , Thornwind Faeries , Wasp Lancer , and Wizened Snitches . None of these seem to stand out. They have lacking effects that don't bolster power level, but rather drag it down. Cards in other supertypes seem to fall under the same category.
Faerie Tauntings , Stolen by the Fae , Dimir Locket , Violet Pall and Dimir Locket all seem incongruous and lacking. Brainstorm is best when shuffling effects can launder away cards if need be. This deck has only two tutors. Stolen by the Fae is restrictive and minute in impact, as well as a sorcery. Violet Pall seems far too expensive for what it does.
For what I believe should be added, card draw, ramp, and threats.
Windreader Sphinx , Coastal Piracy , and Bident of Thassa are able to draw a considerable amount over the course of a match. Phyrexian Arena , Underworld Connections , and Consecrated Sphinx oft daggle me through the game rather easily.
Good fortune to you, my liege. May all lout in your wake.

I gotta say, all I'd recommend is ramp. The talisman cycle in Alesha's colors should help. Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Conviction , and Talisman of Hierarchy should help. Chromatic Lantern helps to, as well as guaranteeing what colors you need. Ramp always speeds things up, makes your plan come to fruition faster.

Here are some suggestions:
You would probably benefit the most from a better ramp-package. Since you don't want to bother buying expensive lands, I'd recommend signets (which are really good for fixing colors) and talismans: Orzhov Signet , Azorius Signet , Dimir Signet , Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Hierarchy , & Smothering Tithe has powerful potential as well.
Ponder and Preordain are extremely powerful in helping you fix colors in the early game. They allow you to dig for the right lands. They're also good at any point in a game. Gitaxian Probe is easy to cast (at basically no cost) since you gain life.
Speaking of life-gain, you have some good ways to gain but no payoffs for it. Alhammarret's Archive seems to combo well with your general. Other ones that come to mind are Graveborn Muse , Greed , and Necropotence
I'd cut Crush Dissent and No Escape for cheaper counterspells. Lower CMC instants give you more opportunities to use them. Swan Song is BROKEN. Counterspell is good. Dispel is amazing but only if you feel your meta is threatening you with counter magic of their own. Muddle the Mixture and Narset's Reversal are unreal. Sometimes you'll misplay them though - they require some experience.

So, I would recommend adding more card advantage - the amount here feels underwhelming. Also, I would try to swap in 2 maan ramp for the current 3 mana stuff. The talsimans are really good here if you're preventing damage ( Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Conviction ) as well as the signets ( Rakdos Signet , Boros Signet , Orzhov Signet ). You aslo have stuff like Fellwar Stone and the new Arcane Signet . You also have cards like Burnished Hart and Wayfarer's Bauble which help you straight up get lands.
I would also cut the Orzhov Basilica , you have lots of tapped lands and this will just slow you down more.
