Nice changes!

Time Vault is not commander-legal though. Would definitely recommend more tutors or a Damnation.

Tidehollow Strix is great, but have you heard of Baleful Strix?

Sphinx Summoner jumps out as a good add, but I don't know what should eb taken out, up to you I guess.

I like running more kill spells, exile spells, and counter spells but your call if that's the way you want it to run.

I would highly recommend Thopter Assembly! it's just so good with Time Sieve!

pokemon45: Thanks for the comment! As far as Phyrexian Reclamation goes, I usually don't end up with too many creatures in my graveyard, as I've opted to for the most part limit my sacrificing to the tokens Endrek makes.

As far as the others go, I think Endless Cockroaches and Relentless Dead are a bit too mana-intensive to work super well, but Thopter Assembly is certainly worth a look, because that'll give me 11 tokens a turn as opposed to the much smaller number produced by the others.

Thanks for the upvote!

Why aren't you running Time Sieve? It goes infinite with Thopter Assembly or Thopter Foundry/Sword of the Meek.

Yeah, you are somehow right. This card is not that aggressive, but what I've experienced the opponents have to deal with this threat very soon when entering the battlefield. Think of the turn when this card comes into play (e.g. in the midgame or endgame), maybe there are some bigger threats on the table. Thopter Assembly can get overlooked too. In respect to my playgroup and because of the performance so far this card is going to stay in the deck until a reasonable replacement is found (by staying at the same power level).

I'm sure Thopter Assembly is more on the casual side and may for sure be swapped for Wurmcoil Engine to power up the deck. But thanks pscwizard for your thoughts, this is a very interesting point.

crucif3r thanks for the suggestions!

I'm not really a fan of infinite combos, so I took out all of the others I had and left only the Time Sieve and Thopter Assembly combo.

As for the other suggestions, Land Tax and Replenish were thought of, but we're a budget restriction at the time. But I do want to add them.

The others I will be play testing with to see how I like them.

As for Emry, I did have Hanna, Ship's Navigator in the deck but took her out in favor of something else. Replenish would definitely take Emry's spot.

I love this style of enchantress. It's a neat approach, going for the token generation!
I think having a way to get around hexproof/indestructible might be helpful for this deck. Bonds of Mortality and Arcane Lighthouse come to mind.
The repeatable tutor potential of Starfield of Nyx and Sterling Grove is also something to consider. They make a perfect target for Plea for Guidance and then you can tutor a card every turn after. A solid way to get the divine visitation, token doublers, and itlimoc all out.
Second Harvest, while a one-off, could be another game changer.
Also, if you have divine visitation out, Thopter Assembly could be a funny way to make an inordinate amount of angles.
Really enjoyed looking through the deck!
