Vizier of the Menagerie Discussion

Thanks! The consistency of the list is one of its best appeals, as being able to tutor toolboxy solutions gives the deck a large amount of consistency.
As for the hack problem, since we've started running tutors like Mystical Tutor and Merchant Scroll, as well as every cheap hack available to us, we haven't really encountered issues in finding a hack. Technically, counting the tutors, we have around 11 hacks at our disposal. Even if you don't end up finding a hack through topdecks, you can always just play Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, then tutor up Vizier of the Menagerie, and win the next turn using Vizier as our hack.

Possible cards to cut
forbidden orchard - don't need color fixing this bad, giving creatures to your opponenets seems loose
rupture spire - I think your mana is fine without needing this card. It's very slow and sets you back one turn, not worth it imo
all the vivid's - I think these would be better as Scattered Groves, Sheltered Thicket or Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade. then you can run the mirage slow fetches as well, like Grasslands, Mountain Valley and the like
aether vial - seems much to slow, and you have to many differing mana costs to know where to stop upticking. it would suck to tick up to 7 then draw a 6 drop for example
soul's majesty- could be Rishkar's Expertise. this has been one of my most favorite cards from the last couple of years
where ancients tread - could be Warstorm Surge, 1 more mana much more damage
zhur-taa ancient - Mirari's Wake just benifits you, therfore stronger i think
siege behemoth - I'm not sure about this one, i think there could be stronger cards out there but if you like it keep running it
Some possible additions
Etali, Primal Storm card's super good
Angel of Serenity removal is good
Avacyn, Angel of Hope anti removal is good
Xenagos, God of Revels hasty big things are good
Steel Hellkite - removal is good
Vizier of the Menagerie - semmi card draw is clever
Cream of the Crop - set up your mayeal
Sunpetal Grove and similar lands are good
I like the deck and it's a very stong strategy, hope i gave you some food for thought.

Instead of Bloodsworn Steward, consider Anger, Cyclops of Eternal Fury, Samut, Voice of Dissent, or Urabrask the Hidden. This would give all of your creatures haste instead of just your commander. The +2/+2 is nice but it only effects your commander.
I think that the Zhur-Taa Druid and the Honored Hierarch are pretty weak in this deck. The Honored Hierarch can't tap for mana until after it has dealt damage to a player. The Zhur-Taa Druid only taps for green and pings everyone at the table, which isn't much damage but it does paint a target on your forehead faster. What about a Birds of Paradise, Drover of the Mighty, or even better Wood Elves.Note that the Wood Elves does not have the word 'basic' on it.
The only other card I don't think is that good is the Fiery Justice. What about Vizier of the Menagerie, Skyshroud Claim, Blasphemous Act, Decimate, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Elemental Bond, Sun Titan, Rishkar's Expertise, or Temur Sabertooth?

These are exactly the suggestions I was hoping for. I work constantly and would have noticed these things eventually, but to others it may just be obvious.
Opal Palace has a place, and is probably strictly better in this deck than in most, but I'm not sure what to remove to get it in there, since most of my land fetch creatures grab basics I don't want to take too many away.

Interesting deck. Considering the crazy amount of mana dorks in here, I'd consider adding Vizier of the Menagerie. If your library's top card is a creature, play it (which will prolly grant you even more available mana dorks next turn). I would also definitely consider throwing in a Paradox Engine. Combined, these two cards will probably grant you a win in such a creature-heavy deck.

When I first made the deck, I ran Sword of the Animist but ended up taking out to sub for Prime Speaker Zegana because of her draw card ability. Wayward Swordtooth seems pretty good, apart from the whole city's blessing thing. Vizier of the Menagerie is another card that I definitely have to consider as well as Lurking Predators. Rhonas's Monument was never really a card that I loved, but I do see the value in this situation. All in all, thanks for the help!

Sword of the Animist is a pretty good ramp card and so is Wayward Swordtooth. The swordtooth is also a pretty consistent creature being a 5/5 for 3. Vizier of the Menagerie is a personal favorite. I love Lurking Predators because it's pricey yet awesome. Rhonas's Monument is great for this kind of deck because of the +2/+2 and trample boost. All in all, I give this deck a +1, great job building it!
