Wow! Looks amazing! After the changes, the only cards I 'may' consider cutting (if you have a few more cards you'd like to run) would be the following: Phyresis, Coveted Jewel, and surprisingly Lightning Greaves. Now that you have made a huge change, feels time to talk about the land base... my recommendations in that group would be the following: Choked Estuary < Witch's Clinic, Spirebluff Canal < Blood Crypt, Flooded Strand < Scalding Tarn, Underground River < Bloodstained Mire, Shivan Reef < Morphic Pool, Mountain < Luxury Suite, Island < Riverglide Pathway  Flip, Island < Clearwater Pathway  Flip.

Doing it without Tron lands could give you a brew that looks very similar to existing Soulherder archtypes (just without Soulherder)... something like this might be almost-competitive (although at this point, it's a very different list to what you're trying to achieve, so not sure if this is the route you'd want to go down):

I dropped my four Flooded Strands for two Gemstone Caverns and two Chrome Mox. With the addition of those two I’ve given the very slim chance of pulling off getting a Phyrexian Dreadnought on the board and attacking turn one.

No problem, lespaul977, happy to help. Shimmering Grotto isn’t too bad; the can be paid into any spell with generic mana requirements, of which you have quite a few. So that works. Ideally though you’ll want access to and without needing to pay —that’s the big downside to the Hefner land. Which is why the gold standard will always be OG Dual lands (Tundra), Fetchlands (Flooded Strand) and Shocklands (Hallowed Fountain). If you wish to keep both kidneys, that really limits one’s options. Basically everything else that can produce and either enters tapped or else has some other recurring drawback (think Forbidden Orchard).

Short answer: Shimmering Grotto is perfectly functional, but is too slow for any real competitive scenario.

Yo! I have a Rhys deck as well, and just want to say your deck list is pretty freeken optimized. VERY fine job and great attention to detail. I run winter orb, and Armageddon in mine (kamal/norn combo as well) for added land hate. Any reason you don't run a Flooded Strand?
