I'll need to experiment with it, thanks!

The earliest I've gotten the combo out and going so far in Tappedout's testing feature is turn six. Which is incredibly fast for my game store, as we are not a Competitive meta. Mostly a fun meta. This deck may get a lot of salt when put together.

I may have missed a point. Blame typing when tired.

I believe it's because the effect of that part of the saga isn't a choice. The Saga will get only one land if they somehow had only one in the graveyard or none if they somehow had none, but "may" generally implies a choice. They don't get the choice to do none, one, or two. At least, from the way I'm reading the rulings. .

Sadly, they get a few of their lands back- its not them grabbing lands from the graveyard, its one of my effects so Tomik doesn't block them. Thanks for the suggestion though! If it wasn't for the recovery for everybody I'd totally run it.

If you really want to throw people off, I can always recommend Mana Tithe , Rebuff the Wicked , and Lapse of Certainty (a card I need to personally seek out). White rarely has instant speed interaction, so being able to effectively counter spells is a good way to catch someone off guard. I don't know how budget your definition of budget is for the deck, but Rebuke and Tithe are ~$3 or less, and Lapse is very cheap.

Kwende really doesn't seem to do enough for any creature but your commander, If you have a Voltron sub-theme like my Tomik deck, that's alright, but only like 3-4 creatures have First Strike in your deck out of 30 total. Some sort of enchantment or creature anthem like Honor of the Pure or Benalish Marshal might be more useful?

Otherwise, I have no other recommendations. Stealing the inclusion of Emergence Zone to put in my mono-white deck, I hadn't thought of including it for surprise Instant-speed plays. +1 from me!

Too mana costly for a rather average effect I can't use right away, unless I flash him in at the end-step of turn before mine with Vedalken Orrery out. I'd rather a five drop creature or instant/sorcery that does something right away (retrieve an instant/sorcery, draw a card with no need to worry about summoning sickness, buff my wizards, etc.) or a more interesting effect (steal an opponent's creature).

Whoops.

I always get those two specifically confused when it comes to their names. Fixed it.

Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries are almost a must in a deck where you can easily deck yourself out. Turn it from a risk to another win.

If one owns it, Gaea's Cradle is probably a definite add. Especially if one wants to bump it slightly more towards cEDH territory. I personally will probably never seek one out, being far more than I'm willing to spend on a single card.

Craterhoof could be fun. I'd add more creature tutors if I added it, for sure.

In proxies, I find it fun and rather fast. This an expensive deck that I'm building up in paper gradually, so I don't own every card yet. Getting Korvold out as early as turn 3 isn't unheard of, but you need a great starting hand and draws.

I may tinker with the deck again, but as of now it's in its final form.
