Couple more infinite mana combos: Freed from the Real (plus a mana dork), Basalt Monolith just needs Kinnan

Have you considered adding Seasons Past, Freed from the Real, Stifle, or Reap?

Hey man -- I have a few suggestions. Feel free to ignore any/all of them, as you see fit.

The easiest way to improve the deck, as I see it, is to improve your artifact mana. Mana Crypt and Sol Ring are two of the best, so it's good you're already running them. However, Talisman of Dominance is almost strictly better than Dimir Signet and Talisman of Progress better than Azorius Signet, so I suggest upgrading. Same for Talisman of Hierarchy and Orzhov Signet. I've also never been a fan of three-mana rocks (like Chromatic Lantern), since they compete with your general and they are generally slower than alternatives. Arcane Signet seems better.

Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura allow you to untap your general in response to the activation and steal more than one creature at a time. Aphetto Alchemist is similar but also untaps rocks. If you want to go deep, Norritt.

Drawing cards is also at a premium in EDH. Things like Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise work, as do more permanent effects like Phyrexian Arena. Mystic Remora is a widely unplayed card that is really good for this.

I think Lightning Greaves is worth serious consideration, and I think it is better than the Swiftfoot Boots in your MB. Being able to go turn two greaves into turn three general with haste plus whatever she steals with haste seems pretty good.

Hope this helps!

When I see Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy I get greedy, I cant help it. Vigean Graftmage Pemmin's Aura Freed from the Real all make infinite mana with dorks like Incubation Druid or Gyre Engineer or Bloom Tender, if use the infinite mana you activate kinnan enough youll get a Beast Whisperer and a bouncy creature or just a Soul of the Harvest to draw the whole deck and cast a Thassa's Oracle to win. Id probably include Intruder Alarm Thousand-Year Elixir Concordant Crossroads and all the mana efficient counterspells. He seems fun. Turn 2/3 wins depending if you have mana positive rocks

Have you considered a Vigean Graftmage since it makes unlimited mana with Incubation Druid? Freed from the Real also makes infinite mana with Incubation Druid or Faeburrow Elder

I see you have Mana Breach and Shrieking Drake but they can only draw infinite cards, you cant get positive mana because you have to retrieve the land you play, so you need a Altar of the Brood to mill your opponents out of the game when you bounce the drake, or a Labratory Maniac or Thassa's Oracle AND leave the 2 or 3 mana needed to cast the labman or fish while also having the extra island to cast with breach/drake combo.

Also theres a new card in the C20 set called Verge Rangers which lets you look at top card and play lands from top of library, so after you cast if you niss the land you can look at the top card and if its a land you can play it on the chulane trigger.

Would recommend Ertai's Meddling over Delay.

Deck looks fun. First Zaxara I've seen though that doesn't run Freed from the Real and/or Pemmin's Aura.

Freed from the Real and Vigean Graftmage both have the ability to make infinite mana with Incubation Druid or any mana dork as long as Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy is on the field. Nice build

Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle is easier to cast only requiring 2GU whereas Zaxara, the Exemplary requires 1BGU. This means that it's easier to cast Arixmethes turn 1 or 2 than it is Zaxara. The other thing is that Arixmethes is a land which makes it a very hard to remove dork.

Though it is easier to go infinite with Zaxara using Freed from the Real than it is with Arixmethes, it is a very fragile combo that can lose because it can't find that aura. Sultai doesn't have great enchantment tutors, so you are only left with Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, and Demonic Tutor as means of grabbing it directly. The combo is also easily countered or stopped as all someone has to do is remove Zaxara (through anything from Swords to Plowshares to Cyclonic Rift). Arixmethes overall simply provides better consistent ramp which is what makes the deck stronger.

That being said, both decks can be strong, but one lends itself to more casual play than does the other.
