I only play 2 styles of magic, EDH and Sealed.

I'm not a fan of ultra slow casual EDH. Due to that I primarily utilize fast combo so we get more games in at Commander night. My strongest colors are Abzan (or any of the 3 involved) or 5 color. Red is my least used color, and only use it as an enhancer for the better colors in MTG.

Most decks I build are cEDH Geared, they however are not true competetive. Some would call that a 75% or budget competitive deck, and that is also not true. cEDH geared is defined by utilizing all the theories of cEDH but basically omitting all but the most vital of Zero Mana cards. This is intentional due to my Meta/Pod, as they already have a hard time beating my fast combo decks. The cEDH Theory I most apply are low mana curves, card advantage, and tuned/focused strategies......

My end goal of a cEDH geared deck is to threaten wins by turn 3, and a fairly consistent turn 5 win. I find this strategy to be more than strong enough for 90% of the tables most people will sit at, and that my win rate has gone way up. The single biggest mistake most folks make is ignoring the early game.....and focusing too hard on using far too many big mana spells....if your deck is not capable of producing 6-7 mana by turn 3-4, you should not be running 10 cards that cost 6cmc+. Just some food for thought.

I would suggest Fyndhorn Elves Avacyn's Pilgrim Nature's Lore Farseek Selesnya Signet Talisman of Unity as budget ramp options.

Could cut cards like Manalith, Mindstone, Join Shields, Fertilid, and Cultivate to make room.

I have tried most of your suggestions, most have been cut generally due to the high CMC.

Spellskite and Cyclonic Rift have been considerations for a long while, just haven't made the push to grab them yet. My last two Spellskites went to Brago and Lazav, and Cyclonic Rift just hasn't been a Priority yet since Bearer of the Heavens and Jokaulhops have been the major game enders for me as my Opponents cannot exactly recover from them in a timely fasion.

BlueStar220 thanks for the suggestions. However I'm looking to make the deck faster, not slower. I playtested your list multiple times and honestly we do not at all have any similarities. I'd strongly suggest cutting that average CMC down to way lower than 4.7 as well as that land count of 40. That is absolutely unplayable in Competetive/Semi-Competetive magic, which your decklists is hubbed in.
