Vessel of Endless Rest Discussion

Right now Vessel of Endless Rest serves as some mini graveyard hate, but I haven't playtested the deck to the point where I feel confident that it belongs. I have some different mana fixers on the way to replace the taplands so Vessel might not be necessary in the long run. I swapped Gilded Lotus for Talisman of Indulgence for the same reason.
I put Quicksilver Amulet, Strionic Resonator, and Panharmonicon as a way to build off Kaalia's ability and get my A/D/D's into action more reliably. Unfortunately, I have yet to put any of them to good use, but I haven't playtested them enough to say for sure that they don't belong.
Authority of the Consuls is coming out for something better. I had Cloudshift in mind but Reconnaissance seems like a good option too. Vampire Nighthawk is specifically what i had in mind for those types of cards!
I hear you on Swiftfoot Boots, I keep getting them mixed up with Lightning Greaves so I accidentally ordered extra of the latter when I meant to buy the former. I do have a pair of boots coming in the mail though! And yeah, after sleeping on it, I'd rather have a big A/D/D than Thalia.
I'll have to update this when I get the new cards into the deck. Until then, thanks for all your suggestions!

I know Tunnel Vision is the standard combo with Vessel of Endless Rest but that is . You have quite a few mana rocks in there, but it does make the any color mana for you. I assume your trying to hard cast / Quicksilver Amulet, which is a little different that my Kaalia of the Vast build where I try and cheat them in (rarely cast, sometime unburial Animate Dead/Reanimate), using Swiftfoot Boots and Dragon Tempest and Steelshaper's Gift to pull Lightning Greaves to my hand.
Do you find Strionic Resonator useful in this build? You have 18 targets that she can cast, assuming you hard cast Restoration Angel and Emancipation Angel that leaves 16, I find in my build with 22 targets, sometimes I don't even have an A/D/D in my hand to play, let alone 2. I would increase my A/D/D count to really utilize it, but I haven't play tested it so you may find that it does work.
I really like all the new powerhouse A/D/D you've got in there now!
Authority of the Consuls is definitely one of your weaker cards now, no one blocks the A/D/D and you protect Kaalia of the Vast but she has Flying so already has build in block evasion (+Maze of Ith, etc). Reconnaissance is good for this too, and it can pull back the A/D/D you drop in as well if needed, like flying into a Vampire Nighthawk or something.
Everything is solid though, it's a good build. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is an awesome card, but I would rather have a Swiftfoot Boots or another draw like Bloodgift Demon over her trying to slow others down, plus she makes your mana rocks more expensive, even a Silverblade Paladin i would prefer over her.

Spirits, thanks so much for the suggestions!
A lot of the changes I was looking at are along the same lines. Some of the cards you've identified are hold-overs for something better, so these suggestions help.
Regarding Vessel of Endless Rest, it's in here as a budget manarock, but I don't necessarily know what it combos with. Open to suggestions on that regard if it fits with this deck.

Here are some potential cuts:
Ruthless Ripper | He's too small, and not going to do much for you
Skyblinder Staff | Not necessary
Vessel of Endless Rest | Planning to infinite combo this?
Congregate | Rarely going to be too valuable / too situational
One or a couple of these should get you Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in there.
Some other suggestions:
Bloodgift Demon gives you an extra draw each turn for under $1
Hope that helps!

Oh ok. That makes a lot more sense. You could use Vessel of Endless Rest to get it back in the library. It's a one shot though, and not the best rock for mono green. Oh and no shuffle effect so double poop

Thank you for your valuable input CaptSillva. I did a bit of tweaking keeping your suggestions in mind and I'm hoping this decklist is looking more consistent now.
I've added essentially all the creatures you've suggested and it helped a great deal with graveyard interaction as well as well as help me shut out my opponents bigger combos.
I also added Eladamri's Call for extra tutoring as well as Vessel of Endless Rest and Bow of Nylea which can send cards from my graveyard to the bottom of my library in addition to their other uses. Which Sisay will easily be able to tutor back to my hand.
One awesome card I found out about recently was Loyal Retainers which is just so fun to play either along with Saffi and Zendikar Resurgent/Reki to draw as much as I want; or in the dream situation, to play the two along with Reveillark, Karmic Guide, and Food Chain for playing nearly my entire graveyard and infinite mana. heck, I could even use the two with just Earthcraft for infinite mana.
I couldn't find room for Squirrel Nest though... if you see a hole where I could trim fat for it, please let me know. Thank you again for taking the time to comment and to help me make my deck better.

Vessel of Endless Rest is a decent mana rock that also combos with Tunnel Vision. Fun stuff!

Well I have the following in my 5 colour EDH deck:
There are a couple more as well, I had a look at your deck and only saw the Lotus Petal?
