Agent of Treachery
Creature — Human Rogue
When Agent of Treachery enters the battlefield, gain control of target permanent.
At the beginning of your end step, if you control three or more permanents you don't own, draw three cards.

As it has somehow avoided being banned in EDH all this time, I welcome the reprinting of Mana Crypt.
"Welcome to...": do the new Walls lose all their abilities?
Jeff Goldblum joins Hugh Grant as yet another A-list Hollywood actor that you can now play as your commander. Anyway, the card is kind of like... mutual theft? Seems hard to optimize because if you include synergy like Faerie Mastermind and Agent of Treachery, there's a risk that you end up accidentaly exiling them for your opponents to use. (Also, I was going to be a know-it-all and say that mathematicians aren't scientists, but chaos theory said "no".)
Ojer Axonil: I kinda wish this used the Transformers "More Than Meets the Eye" technology so that it basically functioned as a transforming MDFC.
The Skullspore Nexus: Will try to fit in my Ghalta, Primal Hunger deck. If the big girl dies, you get a replacement that can in turn give a discount on recasting her. Also, the basic play pattern of Turn 5: Cast Ghalta T6: Cast this and activate it like an X=1 Exponential Growth, netting you a commander that can one-shot anyone who doesn't have more than 3 toughness worth of blockers, is solid.
Breeches: I didn't know I needed this for my Admiral Beckett Brass deck. The pseudo-evasion mode synergizes well with menace, and the Treasure mode + his mana cost sets up casting the Admiral on-curve quite smoothly, especially if you managed to get out two other Pirates already. IDK why they included first strike and on-curve P/T and an attack trigger that doesn't actually requires himself to attack and pseudo-evasion, seems a bit pushed even in my eyes.
Huatli: The powercreeper within me wish she functioned like the March of the Machine Praetors, transforming back at the end of the Saga.

However saying that with your input I will probably cut a lot of that excess owner based cards out and replace it.
Thanks for your input!

Diluvian Primordial and Scourge of Fleets could be easy cuts, Agent of Treachery is a potential win-con if the infinite turns combo gets started. The Magic Mirror could probably be cut too, I have yet to see it perform well in my play testing.
Tutors would be nice, I hadn't really looked into the options for them yet. Cloudstone Curio sounds good, another way to get the infinite mana combo started, or get additional card draws / recur from graveyard. Thanks for the advice!

I would honestly cut some of those chunky 7-drops like Agent of Treachery or Diluvian Primordial along with Storm of Saruman since you're not able to cheat them into play somehow, and they aren't combo pieces (as far as I can see, that is) like Palinchron or Great Whale. You may also wanna consider a few more Tutors like Mystical Tutor & Solve the Equation since you're running a few creatures that can grab them from your graveyard. These are the things that make a deck consistent and win you games!
Also, have you considered Cloudstone Curio here?

In my honest opinon, Roon of the Hidden Realm is going to be your best option for a Bant blink deck, since he's consistent, repeatable blink in your command zone. If you want some ideas for a blink list, This is the Roon list I built and have a lot of fun with.
While I can appreciate that you're trying to play on a very tight budget, here, the more you're willing to invest into your deck over time, the better it'll turn out in the long run. Nonbasic lands, mana fixing, mana rocks, ramp, interaction, those are all going to be a part of any deck you build. Save yourself $25 on Thrasios, since he doesn't really do anything for this deck, invest that into things like Three Visits, Kodama's Reach, Farseek, Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, and other ramp pieces. Also, you may want to consider what your win conditions are. Do you blink a Craterhoof Behemoth a million times? Do you steal all of your opponent's stuff with Agent of Treachery? If you have any questions or anything like that, feel free to shoot me a message or just respond to this comment.

So i had a game recently, where i had an Agent of Treachery in play, and my opponent had a Goblin Sharpshooter in play. In my Main phase i cast Sakashima the Impostor , so in response to that he uses his Goblin Sharpshooter and sacking a few Goblins, to ping the Agent of Treachery , in response to that I play Momentary Blink on the Agent of Treachery , but he sacks a few more goblins and pings my Agent of Treachery for 3, so it dies, and i get no blink ETB effects nor the Sakashima the Impostor copy. So is that how it works with the damage on the stack?
Also does Sakashima the Impostor have no target anymore since the creature died? is the target decided on cast or on ETB? Thanks in advance :)

Also, what do you think of Cavalier of Dawn to replace Meteor Golem? It works well enough for me in Esper, so I would think would be easy enough to cast in dual color. IME, giving someone a 3/3 body is 100% worth saving the 2 mana.
And finally - Ghostly Flicker and/or Illusionist's Stratagem could be solid includes if you want to change up how your "value" works: Since you have lots of creatures that return instants/sorceries, it goes from with Momentary Blink to , but repeatable as long as you have Archaeomancer or friends out. These also fill a different role than Semester's End since they return the targets to the field immediately, and not at the next end step. (Can also go infinite mana/draw with Peregrine Drake as the second target).

Added a few more looters, will have to pick up an Agent of Treachery. Removed some of the mediocre cards for the deck, and added a couple cards like Wonder in order to get in the redzone easier. chivalruse, you gave a few other good suggestions, I like Raffine as well, I'll have to pick one up at some point, but many of the other looters I added should suffice decently as well.
