: Add five
Kinda obvious but this is a color shifted Cascading Cataracts to red.
Make a story spotlight card that portrays a moment from a show, book, or some form of entertainment that you like.

Honestly there is one thing that you can do that is budget and will greatly improve the deck, make the mana base only run lands that enter tapped if the land taps for 3+ colors, if you can get it down to being only 1/3rd your lands enter tapped you will see quite the power boost, even the borderposts will greatly improve as you will have basics to pay the alternate costs.
"but I need the color fixing" you might ask, make the deck a little heavier green and run Rampant Growth effects or even Abundant Growth like spells. you can even keep the ravnica guild theme and run as many of the guild signets you can fit.
Now if you spend money on any land I'd suggest Cascading Cataracts , it's a better Crystal Quarry but is still cheaper, Fist of Suns is also an interesting option for any 5 color commander as you can pay that cost instead of the increasing cost for niv the 2nd or 3rd time you might cast him.
Now I am far too tired to get into much beyond that, there is quite a bit of things you could try for the guild spells. But if you make changes to your mana base it will indeed greatly strengthen the deck.

So I’ve been making a list of must haves in 90% of casual commander decks, mana rocks, support artifacts and lands. I’m not talking situational cards or color specific cards but colorless and lands that you put in almost every commander deck you build regardless if it’s mono or multi color, combo, aggro or control.
Let’s start the list with must have mana rocks
Then you get into optional expensive mana rocks like
Then there are support artifacts like
And optional support like
And there is one creature that almost makes the cut
And we will wrap it up with lands
So the first 6 mana rocks are auto adds then the second 6 are if you have them/the money to get them, this list does not include signets or talismans. Now I have had people argue Worn Powerstone but I feel it is a lesser form of Hedron Matrix that also didn’t make the cut imho.
The first 3 support artifacts are auto adds the second 2 depending on meta and budget.
As for lands they speak for themselves except the last one you might be thinking why? Lightning Greaves / Whispersilk Cloak , Cranial Plating , all the swords.... need I go on? I’ve also had people argue for Isolated Watchtower but as many commander deck run less than 50% basic lands that’s like 90% of the time will be just scrying 1 and there are better ways to scry 1. I thought about Rogue's Passage but there are combo/control decks that never attack (same reason Maze of Ith is not on the list)
So what are your “auto adds” when you start a commander deck and why?

Love this deck! I'm in the process of building a very similar one. I wish thrumming stone weren't so darn expensive! I'm sure when I buy one they'll immediately reprint it, or ban it...
I've compiled a list of cards I'm considering that aren't in your deck. I expect that many of them are cards you either: 1. Thought about and decided against. 2. Didn't want to shell out the cash for, (I feel ya) 3. Don't use in your play group. (I noticed you've got no tutors. A card like Mausoleum Secrets is very affordable and super strong in this deck. If your playgroup or you personally avoid tutors for balance/powerlevel/gameplay reasons, I commend you.) Hopefully there's a card or two in this list that make you say "oooh!", because your deck certainly got that reaction from me! Bloodbond March is INSANE and it's only 50 cents!
If any of these cards are like... aggressively bad, let me know so I don't put them in my deck, haha. I'm assuming you've actually assembled and playtested the deck, whereas I am still residing in the magical christmas land of my mind.
Erebos, God of the Dead
Archfiend of Depravity
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Butcher of Malakir
Journey to Eternity Flip
Dictate of Erebos
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
I haven't put much thought into what you would cut if you like any of these, aside from Blighted Fen . Once you get Bontu's Monument , Herald's Horn , or Jet Medallion out, Blighted Fen and any basic forests you end up with are gonna feel bad. Initiates of the Ebon Hand and Bog Initiate are spicy ways to fix the issue, but they are also... bad.
Side note: I'm curious how Rancor would be in this deck. It's a weird cost/benefit analysis because of course you want as many rats as possible, but when you can rancor to boost your sac creature +2/+0, then it pops back into your hand every time, it seems like the recursion value might add up. Also allows you to trample through extra damage on one player if they're gaining life. Anyone feel free to explain why Rancor is a dumb idea in this deck :)
