Treasure Nabber Discussion

I was not expecting so many comments. Guess I'll expand more. So, for people who don't know Gilgamesh is what I'm basing the character off of. Suns_Champion pointed it out :)
Anyways, He was a hero king from Mesopotamian mythology. He leaves his kingdom after the death of his best friend in search if eternal life. He does not fear death, he fears living without purpose. Additionally, its said he was a demi God; so I feel the back side or flipped version should reflect that. Boza mentioned adding in the sub type of god which is pretty spyce.
If you're familiar with the Fate series; it's an anime... the Gilgamesh in it is an ego maniac and has obtain EVERY SINGLE TREASURE that EVER EXISTED. He has the ability called "gate of Babylon" which allows him to summon any treasure he's ever obtained at instant speed and use it but he just chucks it at people at mock 10 speeds. Really liked the idea Boza had with the anime art. Oh, and Last_Laugh mentioned stax effects; I agree that it having a good stax ability would probably be best but I'd want it to be flavorful. So, I think having an ability similar to Treasure Nabber would fit better.

Subordinate- "Lower in rank or position"... I am personally offended.
I really can't think of much that would punish tapping and untapping. Most of it is going to be geared towards opponents tapping their land like Mana Web . But I'll give you War's Toll , Price of Glory , Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger .
The other thing to consider is what exactly are you trying to punish? Because tapping can be using activated abilities, attack, or blocking for creatures/artifacts. You could go Treasure Nabber or you could go Immolation Shaman or Harsh Mentor or Blood Reckoning . All are technically punishing you opponent for "tapping".

Ah, another Norin player. So you must be a man of culture as well! +1 I got some questions for u....
Vigilante Justice seems weak, hows it working for u?
No Goblin Engineer ?
Goblin Settler = GOOD TIMES ;)
No Treasure Nabber or are you just trying to blow up their artifacts instead?
You dont have much card draw (I dont count looting/rumaging) aside from Combustible Gearhulk, sad robot, Chandra Ablaze, reforge the soul, Skullclamp, tome of legends, mind's eye and mind stone. I see you have play from the topdeck cards so you might be ok, but even in my Norin list that tries to emphasize card draw, I always get F****. They always counter wheels and destroy minds eye or other draw source. Maybe that hasn't been your experience. If it has, with all your basics, Endless Atlas might be worth considering for extra redundancy. I did see your Daretti + Squee there :)
Feldon and Stranglehold ARE A MUST! So much value from Feldon. Strangle stops edric/baral turns, tutors and land fetching (key!).
No Sunbird's Invocation ?
Lastly, since your list is so tuned, I would appreciate some feedback on my list, Norin Naughty Time. My deck is focused/semi-competitive. Our playgroup doesnt like bloodmoon/MLD effects so I can't put those in. Be sure to look at the spoiler for future edits to see what minor changes I will make to it.

I recommend adding Treasure Nabber . If you get him out early enough, he slows down your opponents and can help you with mana if they tap any rocks.

I am not at all happy about the reprint of Ixidron, since that card can completely ruin decks that have no way to turn their cards face-up, again.
However, the new version of Volrath is awesome (although 5 mana for a 7/5 is definitely overpowered, in my mind), and I am excited that each deck shall contain a new incarnation of a character from the Weatherlight saga (I personally am hoping to see new incarnations of Barrin, Crovax, and/or Ertai for the final two). I personally believe that he should have been only black and blue, because I do not believe that either his personality or abilities are green, but I suppose that having three colors in his mana cost is what allows his overall cost to be so low.
The reprint of Thespian's Stage is excellent, and I cannot believe that it was never printed in a Commander set before this.
Rayami is almost certainly from Zendikar, judging from her (I shall presume that Rayami is female, form the name) body paint, but from what plane is Grismold?
The artwork on gift of doom is insanely awesome, and I especially appreciate the dark atmosphere that it evokes.
However, the reprint of Thran Dynamo is always appreciated, since its price is still high, even after all of its previous reprints (which is evidence of how amazing a card it is), and the same is true for Reliquary Tower , as well.
The reprint of Sol Ring was expected, but I really wish that WotC would not reprint it in every Commander deck, since it was once a very rare card, but now is very commonplace.
With dockside extortionist, I see that WotC is continuing the trend of small and inexpensive creatures that shall prove to be supremely annoying, with two earlier examples being Treasure Nabber and Collector Ouphe .
It is nice to see that WotC is reprinting the battle lands, or at least three of them; why could they not have reprinted all of them, or at least have reprinted Canopy Vista , as well? Sungrass Prairie is a nice card, but it has already been reprinted, and Temple Garden , Wooded Bastion , and Canopy Vista are all vastly superior to it.
Mandate of peace will definitely annoy players of aggressive decks that focus on combat; I like the card, but its mana cost is definitely too low; I personally believe that it could have cost and been perfectly balanced.
Thalia’s geistcaller is very nice, but, with only 1 toughness, is far too vulnerable to remain around for a sufficient duration to have a major impact upon a game without major protection; at least she has the ability to protect herself.
Empowered autogenerator could have been nice if it either cost 1 mana less or did not enter the battlefield tapped, because it is far too slow as it currently is; I shall keep Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice in my Atraxa EDH deck and Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus in all my other EDH decks, because they are far faster and can more easily produce large amounts of mana.
With ignite the future, I believe that this is the first time that a card has said “until the end of your next turn,” which is an interesting new ability, but I do hope that WotC uses it sparingly, to prevent it from being abused.
Backdraft hellkite is very nice, with it being a repeatable version of Snapcaster Mage , and I like how it continues the trend of creatures that provide interesting and powerful effects upon attacking, with prominent previous examples being Hellkite Charger and Aurelia, the Warleader . At only 5 mana, that is a really good bargain, in my mind.
Wow! This game finally has a legendary wall! It took twenty-six years, but WotC finally printed such a card! Its effect is nice, but rather weird.
The reprint of Ghostly Prison is very nice, but I am very displeased that none of the reprints have re-used the original art, since I feel that the original art does a better job of conveying the idea of the card’s effect.
