You wrote me an essay Profet93, so I took awhile to respond. Will try and address your question comments one-by-one.

Regarding Null Rod: It was in the prototype of this deck, but Collector Ouphe was cheaper, so I opted for the ouphe.

Regarding Snow-Covered Forests: Would probably be better, but I'd rather not pay the $.

Regarding Elemental Bond/Garruk's Uprising vs Colossal Majesty: In 90% of decks I'd agree with you that those two are better, but in this deck, I think Colossal Majesty might be better. I don't have that many creatures ETBing, and sometimes I have a big creature around for several turns. In those scenarios, I think Colossal Majesty generates more value.

Regarding Hour of Promise: Good, but not sure I need it.

Regarding Pir's Whim: Good, and not a card I knew of. Will have to keep an eye out for something to cut.

Regarding Yavimaya Hollow: Too much $. I don't think I need it enough.

Regarding Miren, the Moaning Well: I don't like Miren very much. True it's a second sac outlet, but I consider it vastly inferior to High Market. I really don't like having to pay . And while I'm in trouble if someone blows up High Market, that hasn't happened yet.

Regarding Castle Garenbrig: Should probably cut a forest for this, and probably will when I get one.

Regarding Mirrorpool: Worth considering. There's only a few instants and sorceries I'd want to sac a land to copy, though, and I have to pay . Also, I'm trying to be a bit careful about how many utility lands I have in the deck, specifically lands that don't make . If you have too many colorless lands you can get screwed.

Regarding Greater Good: Was a card I was seriously considering when building the deck, but saccing Kura to it is not that great. Bottom line, though, I thought for sure Greater Good would get destroyed immediately if I played it, which is why I decided against it.

Regarding Nylea's Intervention: Ok, but not sure I need it.

As always, a problem is what to cut. This deck does fairly well, and when that's the case, I'm always leery of cutting a card unless I see something strictly better.

Regarding Abundance + Sylvan Library: Drawing 3 cards per turn with no down side is fine, though it doesn't happen often :)

Regarding Abundance, it actually has some additional tech to it. In this deck I've been able to put every land in my deck into play once or twice. With Abundance, you put the revealed cards you don't get on the bottom of your library in ANY order, not a random order. So if I Abundance to get a land and don't have any in my deck.... I can rig the order of my deck. At that point your basically tutoring instead of drawing. Doesn't happen often, but is powerful when it does.

You also can't deck yourself if Abundance is in play, though that hasn't come up yet. A fun piece of tech, though not for every deck.

Sorry for taking so long to respond. I put it off since I knew I'd have to write a lot. Thanks for the suggestions, and I'll think of them, though again the problem is what to cut.

Blinkmoth Well - Synergy with blinkmoth well + interaction

High Market > Gallifrey Council Chamber - Same tapland argument as above. You mention you wanted a way to destroy your commander to destroy more cards, this does that easily, with a sprinkle of light. It is also synergystic with Klayer of loyalties and even wurmcoil engine.

Maybe Phyrexia's Core - High market for artifacts/Sac outlet for Mana vault, blinkmoth urn and the one ring. Also prevents artifact theft.

Sanctum of Eternity > Zhalfrin Void - Synergy

What does Vesuva copy, an opposing Cabal Coffers? Another card to potentially add is Thespian's Stage, perhaps for The Grey Havens? Seems unimpactful. You mention you want a lot of ramp and it's a early-mid game deck but these tap lands (particularly Havens) seems to go against that. Do they really warrant an inclusion/provide that much benefit to the deck?

Karn, the Great Creator > Portal to Phyrexia - Portal costs 9 mana and IMO, doesn't provide that much impact. It needs to survive a turn to be able to provide value which doesn't always happen. How has your experience been with it? Karn is great because 1) 1 sided null rod to slow down faster decks for when you don't have ramp early game 2) Animate opposing artifacts to eventually remove + politics, 3) Recursion for the exiled artifacts that buried ruin can't recur. Not to mention it's cmc is much lower. Would love your thoughts.

Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant - Synergy with Emrakul + mass recursion for artifacts get destroyed from a wipe. Anti synergy with your extra turn card.

How has The One Ring been playing for you? I see only Kuldotha Foremaster to remove it should it deal too much lifeloss to you.

I disagree yet respect your decision to exclude rings, I understand it's not what you're going for. A quick note, in your description, you mention it combos with manifold/voltaic key, however, it only combos with voltaic given manifold states another artifact, not allowing you to untap it with rings. Not that it matters given you're not running it but good to note. I do think that you should definitely test rings a lot and see if it eventually warrants an inclusion.

This is a great deck, I love Kozilek Distortion and have always wanted to build a deck around him. I look forward to your response to each suggestion.

Ah, that makes a lot of sense, very solid reasoning! Thank you for taking the time to explain it. I know you're budget, but perhaps a card to potentially consider for future acquisition would be Cavern of Souls? I know you generally want ulamog to die but it's nice to have the option to keep him around, can never be too careful against the blue player.

Speaking of lands and Ulamog dying, High Market and Miren, the Moaning Well might do you some good, particularly if theft is an issue. The latter has helped me against burn.

I agree with your cuts.

High Market - Sac their creatures if they try to get it out. Synergy with aura thief

Jace ingenious mage is not worth 6 mana IMO. Capsize is cool because you can return the mind control enchantment in response to removal.

Check out my deck that has a similar principle but a different commander. I tried to make it less counterspells more stealing and draw. Not great by any means, but somewhat similar to your deck. Keep in mind it hasn't been updated in 3 years

Treasure Cruise, Thieving Skydiver, Pongify are decent considerations as well.

You should replace some wastes with more non-basic lands to provide utility. I notice you have a homeward path (assuming meta has steal effects) then High Market might be worth considering

You need more draw as most of your draw is really expensive, a cantrip or just not efficient. Easiest suggestion is Skullclamp. Mask of Memory and Infiltration Lens might be worth considering as well

@seshiro_of_the_orochi. High Market was in my original draft actually, but I actually had to cut it due to not having enough basics to find up with all of the fetch lands if you believe it. I have a ton of way to sacrifice creatures and I simply needed to not fail my basic check lmao. In a similar vein, Spawning Pit is, while powerful, redundant in this deck. It's another card in my original 150-ish card draft that got cut as I had too many sacrifice outlets.

Unfortunately, my suggestion is less spectacular than what DreadKhan had going, but High Market and Spawning Pit seem like useful additions.
