Anyway, wrapping things up with the Commander Decklist:

Pact of the Serpent: Cheaper Distant Melody, can also occasionally be used to kill/deck someone; passing the turn with infinitive* tokens can be dangerous.

Serpet's Soul-Jar: Kinda wished they let have this design space for itself trough Idol of Endurance but w/e. Also, would letting you choose the creature type on ETB have been too much?

Ethereal Valkyrie: Would have been kinda nice if this was mono- & CMC 4 or 5 with the draw part skipped

Spectral Deluge: Scourge of Fleets with the fins chopped off. Hard casting this feels a bit much, but the foretell cost makes this a fine wipe in mono- decks

Hero of Bretgard: I just wanted to express my happiness over "one or more" templating being followed by "that many"

PS. I'm kinda surprised Koma's Coil ended up being depicted as an actual separate creature; I figured it would be an image of the rest of Koma, Cosmos Serpent body which you could visually connect with it and each other recursively, S.N.O.T.-style, if you get what I mean

Adding on to what Doombeard1984 said, you can hyperlink a username the same way. [ [ username ] ]. Without the spaces. There’s a thing that says “comment tutorial” below the box you type a comment in that’ll give you even more tips.

Crop Rotation is good if you have multiple tutor targets, such as Ancient Tomb, Gaea's Cradle, Cavern of Souls and whatnot. Otherwise, I wouldn’t run it. I love Distant Melody. It’s great, but not as good as consistent card draw like Phyrexian Arena. Still great since the thing you need with The First Sliver is more slivers to cascade with.

So if you put 2 ['s and then 2 ]'s before and after the card name, you will hyperlink the card. Vampiric Tutor and Worldly Tutor are really good. I run them myself. I don't run Crop Rotation myself as I feel I don't really want to be putting my lands in the graveyard. As for Distant Melody in a game of EDH, I would rather have constant sources of drawing, and card tutoring. Not a single use draw. Thinks like Phyrexian Arena, Greed or The Great Henge give you repetitive draws at a cost or a trigger. Just my opinion
