This list really needs a Laboratory Maniac for a few reasons

  1. It can be a secondary wincon because there are times you can go off almost by accident

  2. It is the last piece needed to win with Simic Growth Chamber , Retreat to Coralhelm , and Llanowar Scout / Skyshroud Ranger

just a thought, looks like a blast to play, as are most Tatyova, Benthic Druid lists :)

I have built a similar deck and the main win condition is to have the Peregrine Drake and Scrivener or Archaeomancer on the field with Capsize and Ghostly Flicker or Displace in your hand with the other Ghostly Flicker or Displace in your graveyard. You will need 9 mana with at least 3 blue. Now you can Capsize your first target permanent (Yes, even Lands!!). Now cast Ghostly Flicker or Displace targeting Peregrine Drake and Scrivener or Archaeomancer . Peregrine Drake will re-enter and untap 5 lands, Scrivener or Archaeomancer will re-enter targeting Ghostly Flicker or Displace in your graveyard, returning it to your hand. Do this one more time and all your lands will be untapped and you can now Capsize your next target and start again. Demonstrate the loop and you will be able to bounce-back all of your opponents' permanents. You can then attack, pass the turn and Capsize your opponents' lands on their turn as soon as you have priority. Other tips is that Capsize is critical so you may want to wait until you have 11 mana (5 blue) and hold up a Counterspell to protect your Capsize . I also run a Ulamog's Crusher and will leave two potentially problematic permanents an opponent controls and let Annihilator 2 destroy them. Devious Cover-Up is another card that should be considered for this build. It can exile someone else's Capsize and shuffle four cards from your graveyard back into you library. This deck is good at digging and will generally be able to survive until you can assemble your combo. If anyone is considering it, do it. Tatyova, Benthic Druid is a fun commander and don't be afraid to run 40+ lands, this will help Tatyova, Benthic Druid dig out the combo pieces with land drops.

As of cards to add and relatively budget: (also your deck wants to have alot of instant speed/flash stuff, always leave your mana up to plays spells not on your turn or float the mana if nothing important happened.

ThoAlmighty Thank you for the comment and +1. Of your three suggestions World Shaper was once in the deck. If I remember correctly it was cut for being too slow and the situations I played it with a full graveyard and bolt ready for it too infrequent. I'm afraid The Mending of Dominaria will similarly be too slow. It also has the draw back of being telegraphed so I will likely be targeted when it hits the field. Kamahl's Druidic Vow is interesting, I will keep it in mind the few games. The legendary requirement is what makes me somewhat hesitant as Riku typically does not stick around and there are only seven other cards that satisfy the requirement.

bushido_man96 Thank you for the comment and +1. Tatyova, Benthic Druid should absolutely be in here, not sure why it is not except maybe finding a cut target proved to difficult. Any help on the front would be appreciated. Manabond used to be in the deck, I rarely had a hand full of lands so it was often a dead draw. Patron of the Moon is a card I have been considering for a while. It pairs nicely with Storm Cauldron and Meloku the Clouded Mirror but those are the only two cards so I am having a difficult time assessing just how much it would help.

I absolutely agree that Valakut should be legendary, the flavor of the card and having a proper name all point to it being one a kind. I am happy about this particular screw up by Wizards as I thoroughly enjoy this deck and it really would not be viable in a group setting without being able to copy Valakut.

Thank you both for the suggestions, I will keep them in mind to see if I should reevaluate previous card judgments.

Have you thought about running Tatyova, Benthic Druid ? The card draw will be insane, and the life gain can be very beneficial. You should also consider Manabond , espeically since you are running Meloku the Clouded Mirror . They combo nicely together. Patron of the Moon could be strong, too.

Just a side note here: How is Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle not legendary? Wizards screwed that one up...

Yeah, I love it. I run both Hour of Promise and Pir's Whim in my Tatyova, Benthic Druid deck. I might go with Pir's Whim for this deck, though. It's pretty heavy at the 5-drop slot, and with the exception of Aura Shards , it's very light on interaction. Also, turn 2/3 Mayel, turn 3/4 Whim, blowing up your opponents' mana rocks, turn 4/5 Mayel activation is a nice curve.
