Sacrifice Commander's Sphere: Draw a card.
8 hours ago
I would take the likelihood of getting out a powerful piece - particularly in Commander where you always have access to a deck-advancing spell - over the other advantages of Commander's Sphere. Turns are more valuable than cards, and the cost reduction buys you a full extra turn by ramping you just a little bit early. It’s a bit closer of a case with Sphere over the other two you listed, but I would still err on the side of a rock over a .
That said, I would certainly run Sphere over either Thran Dynamo or Gilded Lotus.

, I would rather use Commander's Sphere over any of the Ravnican signets, because it does not require mana to fuel its ability, and I can sacrifice it when to draw a card when I no longer require the mana.

Deck is almost complete.
Would like to sub in Binding the Old Gods.
Need to do more play testing, but from what I've done so far it is looking good.

I guess whether you add depends on exactly how many thopters you usually produce - it might make a decent Talisman/Commander's Sphere substitute if you can really pump 'em out. Basically doing a sidegrade in a mana rock slot to enable better access to colored mana. I don't think it would be particularly faster, though.

Hey, nice version so far for well under $100.
40 lands is a lot, consider cutting some for some more low mana cost ramp for five colors to help gameplay?
- Manaweft Sliver --> Cabaretti Courtyard
- Sol Ring --> Traveler's Amulet
- Fellwar Stone --> Obscura Storefront
- Commander's Sphere --> Maestros Theater
- Unclaimed Territory --> 1x Forest
Unclaimed Territory is a helpful land when playing so many different colored Slivers and it enters the battlefield untapped.
- Yavimaya Coast --> 1x Forest
- Shivan Reef --> 1x Mountain
- Karplusan Forest --> 1x Forest
- Caves of Koilos --> 1x Plains
- Adarkar Wastes --> 1x Plains
- Sulfurous Springs --> 1x Mountain
Some of the Pain lands got reprinted in the newest set Dominaria United and those lands are down to $2 or less each right now. Pain lands enter the battlefield untapped to make colorless or colored mana to speed up gameplay. By replacing some basic lands with more dual lands that can enter the battlefield untapped that can make the color of the basic land it replaced or another color this can improve gameplay as well as color fixing.
- Farseek --> Rampant Growth
- Cinder Glade --> 1x Forest
- Canopy Vista --> 1x Plains
- Sunken Hollow --> 1x Island
The Tango lands are other budget lands that care about basic lands. These lands are good with Farseek, land ramp that can better color fix.
After these land changes, example upgraded budget 36 land five color manabase (20 G, 17 W, 17 R, 15 U, 14 B):
- 4x Forest
- 4x Plains
- 3x Mountain
- 2x Swamp
- 1x Island
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Path of Ancestry
- Unclaimed Territory
- Evolving Wilds
- Terramorphic Expanse
- Frontier Bivouac
- Jungle Shrine
- Mystic Monastery
- Opulent Palace
- Sandsteppe Citadel
- Savage Lands
- Seaside Citadel
- Yavimaya Coast
- Shivan Reef
- Karplusan Forest
- Caves of Koilos
- Adarkar Wastes
- Sulfurous Springs
- Cinder Glade
- Canopy Vista
- Sunken Hollow
This advice was just about improving the manabase and ramp, if you're interested I offer more advice on other areas. Would you like more advice?
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice version on a low budget. You have good deck building skills on a budget.
Consider Talisman of Hierarchy as 99th card or an upgrade for a Diamond? Orzhov Signet is another mana rock upgrade for a Diamond. Commander's Sphere is upgrade for Cluestone. Angelic Accord is an Angel token source upgrade for Moonsilver.
Sigarda's Vanguard gives Liesa double strike when she ETB and when she attacks. Karmic Guide can reanimate any creature in your graveyard even a black creature. Emeria Shepherd is powerful repeatable nonland permanent reanimation when playing so many Plains. Pair Shepherd with Wayfarer's Bauble.
Liesa, Forgotten Archangel has lifelink, can shut down some opponent strategies and can be repeatable creature recursion. She's good enough to add some creatures who can sac themselves for value especially removal and protection such as Cathar Commando and Selfless Spirit.
Angel of Despair is powerful ETB removal. Angel of Sanctions exiles something when it ETB. Admonition Angel can be repeatable exile. Palace Jailer is more monarch as well as opponent creature exile. Vindicate and Dire Tactics are some budget removal upgrades to consider.
Good luck with your deck.

I've tried to keep this deck nearly 50% White and 50% Red.
I've narrowed the premise of this deck down to the following categories, 50 Cards to the first, and 10 cards to each other category, give or take.
50% of the Deck is the Commander, Land, Mana rocks, and Draw.
10% is Steal/Keep
10% is Removal/Wipe
10% is Bringing Cards Back
10% is Brion Fodder and Fetch cards
10% is Double Damage and Powerful Flyers
Your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated. That being said, I will probably not be able to afford the more expensive cards Land Tax, Smothering Tithe, Lifeline, Smuggler's Share etc. that are not already in this deck. However - It's still fun to check them out! If you like it, up vote!
With this revision, I've cut many of the fancier, slower dual lands to opt for faster basic lands. I've also added Weathered Wayfarer.
I've made some recent changes to this deck, hopefully to address that mid game I am struggling with tempo, as well as running out of mana to cast the creature or steal spell and have enough to activate Brion's ability. Some cards like Deathrender and Thornbite Staff have been removed (even though they were good in concept) to add more playability.
Fiery Emancipation gives me triple damage. Calamity Bearer works specifically to Brion's sac ability. Angrath's Marauders, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Gratuitous Violence all make the damage I do twice as effective.
When creatures I steal die, Stalking Vengeance beefs them. When I summon large creatures into play Warstorm Surge deals damage to my opponent, and when I sac those, Stalking Vengeance hits them on the way out.
Malignus, Serra Avatar, and Soul of Eternity all act as giant bombs to throw at the opponent.
Hofri Ghostforge allows for me to steal an opponents creature, fling it at them with brion, and then keep a spirit copy of that creature.
Magus of the Wheel and Reforge the Soul provide the opportunity to get a fresh hand at my whim. Humble Defector is an easy and fun, card that helps me forge alliances with other players in multiplayer while getting me TWO extra cards per turn.
Skullclamp works perfect with the sacrifice ability and is easy to cast.
Well of Lost Dreams is insane when played late game for Brion's lifelink ability and can be fetched with Hoarding Dragon or Open the Armory Sin Prodder gives me a potential extra card per turn, or the chance for an opponent to take damage to the face... and then I can pull it out of my graveyard later with my other cards! Basically a win/win. Mangara, the Diplomat and Mila, Crafty Companion Flip serve to deter attacks and draw.
Hoarding Dragon serves as a flyer, a sacrifice, and can grab any rocks, Skullclamp, or Well of Lost Dreams.
Open the Armory helps grab Skullclamp, Well of Lost Dreams, or Gift of Immortality.
Recruiter of the Guard is specifically to get Bazaar Trader for the huge advantage of keeping my opponents things, but can also grab Duergar Hedge-Mage for removal or Sin Prodder (amongst a few others). Weathered Wayfarer can grab any land, such as Buried Ruin or Arcane Lighthouse.
Archon of Justice is quite powerful in this deck, as it allows for a flying creature, then a source to sac, and remove a card permanently.
Angel of Serenity gives me the option of 3 recursion or 3 removal.
Duergar Hedge-Mage can be played and replayed in this deck for knocking off annoying enchantments or mana rocks.
Magus of the Disk is one of the board wipes.
Grasp of Fate, Oblivion Ring, and Banishing Light all allow for really flexible removal. Same for Quarantine Field except allows for extra targets for more mana. Chained to the Rocks works the same, but only for creatures. Angel of Sanctions works similarly, but is a creature. Ryusei, the Falling Star really just acts as weenie removal and a sac source from a flyer.
Bringing them Back (and sometimes keep it!):
Adarkar Valkyrie Sac an opponents creature, then get it permanently!
Bazaar Trader Take it with a steal and keep it!
Angelic Renewal Sac my own creature, get it back! Gift of Immortality Sac my own creature, get it back... again, and again!
Emeria Shepherd play a land, get a card! Play a Plains, get a creature to sac!
Mistmoon Griffin Flys, defends, and sac-able, then get back a creature from the graveyard!
Squee's Embrace fun and easy to play, and retrievable with Tragic Poet.
Tragic Poet, a low mana cost creature to get any enchantment in my deck back for any reason. Fun with Squee's Embrace, Angelic Renewal, etc. Returned Pastcaller a flyer that lets me grab a Threaten or Breath of Life. Angel of Serenity gives me the option of 3 recursion or 3 removal.
Stealing their Creatures:
Captivating Crew steals every turn! No wasted card space here, just a reusable sorcery.
Conquering Manticore powerful flyer, that steals!
Zealous Conscripts You can steal anything! Anything! Lands? Mine. Artifacts? Mine. Works great with Bazaar Trader.
Act of Treason, Portent of Betrayal, and Threaten are all basic steal spells.
Malevolent Whispers, Mark of Mutiny, and Traitorous Instinct all give me steal with buffs for Flinging.
Harness by Force allows for more than one thing to be taken if the extra cost is paid!
