Tezzeret's Gambit Discussion

I've run Tezzeret's Gambit in similar lists. Have you looked at splashing red or blue instead of white?

Red gets you Vexing Devil and Devastating Summons alongside haste enablers. Blue gets you Cloudfin Raptor and Pongify alongside the usual blue stuff.

With a fetch base you can even start looking at even wilder cards- Bloodhall Ooze and Slitherhead, Thought Gorger and more. Just depends on where you want to look for synergies- +1 counters have been printed on a lot of good cards over the years.

You given some thought to Curse of Stalked Prey and Tezzeret's Gambit? I feel like rabblemaster/warboss/Goblin Assault/Lightning Coils and a ton of rituals might work really well there.

This looks really solid overall, but I do have a few suggestions.

First, it looks like you have a lot of creatures, which is great, but you could use a few more creatures in the 1- and 2-cost slots. You have to cast creature spells to get the +1/+1 counters on Animar, Soul of Elements, and low cost creatures can help you pump him up to get your fatties out faster. This is important because you have a ton of fatties. I would cut some of your 3-drop creatures (since there are many) and a couple of your fatties for some mana dorks. It's also worth remembering that Animar costs 5 if he's removed just once, and that can actually be hard to get to without enough mana dorks.

Secondly, there are a few cards I might consider changing out. Fervor could be exchanged for Anger, simply for the fact that it's a creature. It does have to be in the graveyard, so it's not strictly better here. Tezzeret's Gambit seems like it may not be worth potentially interrupting a Primal Surge. While it may synergize with Animar, I don't know how often you'll be wanting to spend the mana for it at sorcery speed in this deck. I would also suggest replacing Fuel for the Cause with Mystic Snake. Again, the proliferation isn't as much value as it seems, and it seems better to have a counter on a stick that can easily cost 3 in this deck.

Lastly, I would find room for Contagion Engine and possibly Contagion Clasp. Proliferation is much better on a permanent.

I really like the inclusion of Defense of the Heart and Equilibrium. I think they could both be pretty good in this deck, and I hadn't really been exposed to either. Nice work, my dude.

Luminarch Ascension came out 11 years ago and I'm still trying to get over how great it is.

Cool build, but you might want to make room for something like Steady Progress or Tezzeret's Gambit - perhaps in place of Think Twice? - since they help you draw into an Ascension if you don't have one, or proliferate more counters on it if you do. If you really want a combo setup, Delaying Shield guarantees a counter on the Ascension each turn.

I agree with the manafixing and card draw comments above.
Anyhow, I like the perfect mana-curve. This is a very solid start.
So 1st I want to say Renegade Krasis just to put that out there, and here's some card draw I think you might find interesting:
Steady Progress, Tezzeret's Gambit, Private Research, and Sunset Pyramid
You might also like these storage lands for proliferate->ramp shenanigans:
Dreadship Reef, Calciform Pools, and Saltcrusted Steppe

DiggleMcGee, Hostage Taker is already in the deck. Great card...I love stealing mana rocks if nothing else.

Proliferate is a very interesting suggestion. It works with the other walkers in the deck as well as my commander. Steady Progress and Tezzeret's Gambit would be possible options too. I'll consider it...thanks!
