Hi there! Good looking deck with an underused commander. I have some suggestions though, if you're still having trouble with gameplay.

My first suggestion is to consider the cost of your commander. Ideally, turn 2 ramp cards like the talismans are standard. However, considering you'll still be ramping on turns 4, 5, and even 6, maybe consider higher costed CMC ramp, such a Firemind Vessel or Gilded Lotus. It's easier to create lots of colorless mana than colored, so if you find you dont need that much color, maybe switch in a Worn Powerstone or something similar?

Second, since I run an equipment deck myself, possibly consider the balance of creatures to equipment. Do you run into games where you have too much of one over the other?

And third (off the top of my head.) Sunforger is an incredible powerhouse, especially if you have Syr Gwn out to cheat its equip cost. Consider abusing it more! I like cards such as Seething Song to give you the mana to search for multiple things in a single turn.

If you want more recommendations, let me know!

Really like the feel and flavor of this build! My only suggestions would be as follows:

This really doesn't appear to be a 'spells' sort of build, only having 20 Instant/Sorcery cards, so both Primal Amulet  Flip and Baral, Chief of Compliance feel a bit out of place. Maybe consider replacing them with whichever of these you like most: Undead Warchief, God-Eternal Oketra, Gisa and Geralf, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Fallen Shinobi, The Scarab God.

I believe Commander's Sphere is grossly overplayed and is a trap. If you really like the ability to draw a card (which seems like you'll be doing very well already) then maybe consider replacing it with either Mind Stone or Hedron Archive. If color fixing is of higher priority Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress or Gilded Lotus are great replacements.

Given you're in 3 colors, I think replacing Cryptic Command with Arcane Denial might be an easier to hold/cast (though slightly less flexible) upgrade.

As stated before, it seems as though drawing cards won't an issue. Plus having a yard full of goodies might be useful, so Dig Through Time may be a bit redundant if not a straight up non-bow. Replacing it with one of the unused creatures mentioned above may possibly be a better use for that card slot.

Hope these thoughts/suggestions help.

Hey, deck looks cool. Probably the number one thing to add rn are mana rocks. It's important to get off the ground quickly, and a lot of these guys require quite the mana investment to work. Things like Commander's Sphere, Gilded Lotus, Sol Ring, Coalition Relic, Mana Crypt, etc.

So the first big choice will be Superfriends vs Discard, and either can be used with your subpackage of flicker effects.

Suggestions for initial cuts I think have to be made after that distinction is called, because most of what you have would fit in one or the other without much issue...just not both.

These cards are the land-based ramp I found: Wayfarer's Bauble, Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart, Dreamscape Artist, Gem of Becoming and Myriad Landscape. Other ones are oddly situational, or just suck. Can supplement those with artifact mana like Gilded Lotus or Chromatic Lantern. Surveyor's Scope might be cute, but probably just bad. Sword of the Animist is a thing. Druidic Satchel is neat. More form this search:

troca opportunity por Precognitive Perception , shrine of the forsaken gods eh ruim, dispatch precisa de um deck mais focado em artefato, 19 eh pouco pra consistentemente ter 3 no campo, callous oppressor parece horrivel kkkk, painful truths nao funciona se voce jogar de graca do yennett, troca por um Read the Bones ou Notion Rain ou Dream Cache , o resto parece bem decente, mas vou falar um monte de carta impar que eu gosto: Burnished Hart , Thief of Sanity , Prognostic Sphinx , Scheming Symmetry , Acquire , Aether Gale , Wave of Reckoning eh especialmente bom pq nao mata yennett e mata o resto, Time Wipe , Plague Wind , Generous Gift , Mortify , Gilded Lotus , Imprisoned in the Moon , Mind's Dilation

I would not take out the talisman. Leave that in. You want as many rocks that come in untapped as possible. You should probably trash the others. I'd do Sol Ring , Arcane Signet , Dimir Signet , Talisman of Dominance , Wayfarer's Bauble , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Gilded Lotus , Turnabout , Cabal Ritual , and possibly Doubling Cube

Try throwing in some ramp spells IE: Cultivate , Rampant Growth , Kodama's Reach

Also something like Gilded Lotus or extra mana dorks Elvish Harbinger , Elvish Mystic or Rishkar, Peema Renegade might help ya with Omnath, Locus of Mana 's ability.

Just some ideas to Ponder on in the Thought Vessel !

But looks fun I've always loved ramp decks :)

Abubs of course! at this point, Paradox Engine has of course been banned in commander, but consider it; with Paradox Engine, Gilded Lotus and a sacrifice outlet like say, Ashnod's Altar all on the board at once, with Squee, the Immortal somewhere to be cast from. The interesting thing about Squee is that he circumnavigates the Commander Tax every time he dies by just being able to be cast from Exile or Grave indiscriminately for three mana, no matter what.

At the point you cast Squee with mana produced from Gilded Lotus, but before he resolves Paradox Engine will untap Gilded Lotus. After Squee hits the board, you can the immediately sacrifice him to the Altar and return yourself to the beginning state, only with more mana floating. You can repeat this process a number of times to use any number of effects to generate damage with Impact Tremors .

Or since of course Paradox Engine is unavailable, you could use Desecrated Tomb , Genesis Chamber , various cost reducers like Ruby Medallion or Helm of Awakening and Phyrexian Altar to generate more creatures per each time you cast Squee, allowing you to generate infinite army Bats or Myr.

Basically the point is to recast Squee a LOT and get benefits out of it. It was more of a meme than anything else as I've taken this deck apart at this point. It was very fun to play but most of the time fell short due to my small cardpool. Thanks for comment ^^
