I must say I love this one; it's weird to see you in stax environment, but I see those control elements of yours :)

Since I see you are running some artifact support and really remind me of my attempt of Raff (even though it was slightly different), I was wondering if you are considering Walking Ballista as another finisher and another infinite mana sink? It can be tutored from any of your current artifact sources and with addition of i.e. Trinket Mage he's gonna be out there for sure! You can also add Seat of the Synod and Ancient Den to give him more targets.

I like it a lot, however would totally run Solemnity for the combo with Decree of Silence, also, consider Trinket Mage over Treasure Mage, and all of the fetchlands like Windswept Heath, Misty Rainforest, Arid Mesa, Scalding Tarn, Marsh Flats and Polluted Delta, they are legal even with color identity.

Thank you jessetaverne. Seal of Removal may be worth a try. I was thinking about testing the black seal for longer now, should really test that. Dreamborn Muse is one of those cards that seem perfect but totally underperform. I tested that card and it’s not worth a slot for this deck. Since Lion's Eye Diamond is so powerful, it’s the first card I tutor up with Trinket Mage or Tolaria West. In the majority of games I got the diamond, so I basically discard my hand every turn. With the diamond, Dreamborn Muse ends up doing almost nothing for me but milling my opponents. Not always a bad thing but it can backfire against another deck that uses his graveyard. Might be better in a deck without diamond.

Bear Umbra has become one of my favorite cards over time. It allows to play some really cool turns. In addition it is a really nice wrath protection. Makes it super easy for you to recover from wrath-effects, even better than Command Beacon. With a Pernicious Deed you can kill the board with your commander surviving and recovering much faster from it than other players.

Strange to see playsets of shocklands without any fetches. Consider Misty Rainforest, Verdant Catacombs, and Polluted Delta to help you find the colors you want when you need them. Speaking of lands, since your curve tops out at 4 you might want to trim even lower than 22 - down to 20 or 21.
Instead of Fabricate you could look at Whir of Invention, Trinket Mage, or Treasure Mage.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Neat idea. Glad to see you embracing the glass cannon nature of the deck. You could try Whir of Invention since it finds 3/4ths of the combo. Trinket Mage finds 2/4ths of it and Trophy Mage finds 1/4th. Not saying you should definitely run all these cards- just some tutors to consider so you can find the combo faster/more reliably. If you're on the mill-them-out plan with altar, you could also consider Pact of Negation in the main or side. Since you don't plan on having a next upkeep you don't have to worry about the downside, it's just free combo protection.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

This is a pretty badass combo deck. I made mine to win through tokens and combat damage so it is cool to see a different idea! I would most recommend Amulet of Vigor as it makes a card like Myriad Landscape or any ramp spell like Explosive Vegetation, Scapeshift, or even Rampant Growth pretty sweet! I love that card and you can tutor for it with Trinket Mage or Fabricate.

Megalomania I know that 3 targets for Trinket Mage are few, but with him I can find Altar of the Brood and this is why it's inside the deck, anyway if I like to keep him what cards do you think I can put as targets?

You are right on Personal Tutor too and I will think about some replacement. What do you think about Restoration Angel instead of Gonti, Lord of Luxury or Gray Merchant of Asphodel? I find them a little underwhelming.
