Sadly, you need to get to 6 power for Sisay, since Sisay, Weatherlight Captain says 'costs less than' rather than 'equal to or less than.'

No worries, the use of Jegantha as a companion is it lets you get Sisay to 4 power on it's own, which allows the whole combo to occur with no extra pieces. Yes 11 mana is a ton, but 3-3-5 isn't too bad, when it's a 5 color, 0 card combo, you can work with anything in deck. Radha while not bad for the deck, will often be worse than other ramp pieces like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, or just normal ramp.

The actual legends in more competitive Sisay lists (according to lists I've seen) are Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Anafenza, the Foremost, Gaddock Teeg, Tymna the Weaver, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, Teferi, Time Raveler, Oko, Thief of Crowns, Kethis, the Hidden Hand, Dack Fayden, Aminatou, the Fateshifter, The Chain Veil, Umezawa's Jitte, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician/Najeela, the Blade-Blossom (and Samut, Voice of Dissent optionally for this combo).

Optionally (on EDHREC) Helm of the Host, Hammer of Nazahn, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, Saffi Eriksdotter, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Captain Sisay, Brago, King Eternal, Kunoros, Hound of Athreos, Ashiok, Dream Render/Narset, Parter of Veils/Teferi, Master of Time/Linvala, Keeper of Silence (non-Jegantha variations)

Sadly, while Radha seems okay? Tutoring it is really bad, since you could fetch value pieces like Wrenn and Six, or better ramp like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, and I doubt you need an extra green if you can cast Sisay and activate her, and she also already needs to have a 1 color legend out. If you are looking to use Radha for pumping Sisay, run more of the optional legends. Idk, I could be wrong but I don't see it being popular, I hope you have the best of luck with it, it seems pretty fun for the deck on terms of a flavor include!

Cut Leonin Abunas, put in Padeem, Consul of Innovation.

Cut your shapeshifters that don't really do much of anything. That should give you room for some of our suggestions.

Why Mycosynth Golem? I feel Etherium Sculptor would work better.

I've seen Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain do surprisingly well in my friend's Reaper King Deck. Someone else played their Jhoira, so my friends' Jhoira turned into a scarecrow and then killed Jhoira. We were all very confused. XD

Have you thought of Sundial of the Infinite? It works really well as a threat against bounces on your own turn, and it allows the Myriad tokens from Blade of Selves to stick around. I use that trick with Myr Battlesphere... with frightening results! XD

I think I can help you make your gameplay better. Try imprinting your Mirrorworks onto your Prototype Portal. I did that with my Sram deck and got hilarious results with Mirror Gallery. I basically made several copies of Sword of the Animist and fetched out seven Plains' in one swing. Sword of Feast and Famine hit somebody in that same swing, so I ended up with an EPIC 2nd main phase.

My biggest tip for you would be to find your "Win Condition". You have a split right now between random artifacts and cards that care about artifacts/ artifact creatures with no clear singular way to win. You should hone in on what your favorite thing to do when you play this deck, or magic in general, is. Do you like making a bunch of thopters and swinging in for damage? Do you like casting a bunch of artifacts that do useful things? Secondly, you have a few artifacts that don't do anything to help you win Tower of Eons is an example. It takes 12 mana to gain 10 life, and in red and blue you can do a lot more for 12 mana! Tamiyo's Journal takes 5 mana and 3 turns to find a card for you, you have access to way better stuff! Trinket Mage Trophy Mage Gamble there are a ton of options that are more efficient ways to find something specific, and what specific thing should you be looking for? Your win condition! The card that is going to help you win, help set up your win, or keep your opponent from winning. Thirdly, playing blue, you have access to a lot of efficient card draw and counter spells! After taking out what you don't need in your deck, you should add more card draw and more "Answers". "Answers" are cards that help you deal, or "Answer" anything your opponent plays. Counter spells can handle most stuff, put you need to keep mana open on his turn and they don't do anything once he actually has something on the field. I suggest having 10 or more "answers" and this can include things like Blink of an Eye or River's Rebuke or Flood of Tears that bounce things or Rolling Earthquake or Vandalblast that can straight up destroy things. Try to balance things that can remove single target and things that handle the whole board, and some counter spells! When adding card draw, try to get bang for your buck. Opt is a 1 for 1, it doesn't fill your hand or really help you draw more cards than your opponent. Card draw is a big rabbit hole, but both blue and red have decent options, especially when combined. I suggest Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain as an easy include, and possibly a new commander, depending on what you choose for you win condition.

Welcome to magic and good luck! It sounds like you play 1 vs 1 games, so build your deck with that in mind! After they reopen, I suggest you and your bf head to your local game store because commander is way more fun with 4 players in my opinion!

My pleasure! Your Thrasios, Triton Hero/Vial Smasher the Fierce deck looks super fun! I love those two commanders, and I love land shenanigans. Also I just upvoted all of your other decks ;)

If you're looking for ideas/inspiration, I'd suggest checking out both my Omnath, Locus of Rage and Omnath, Locus of the Roil decks on my profile. There's a lot of land-specific strategies in them. I also have Muldrotha, the Gravetide built if you need more sultai ideas. The 3c temur omnath deck is the newest, but they're all built with love haha

I also have Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain built if you need artifact ideas.

Overall keep up the good work! Cheers!!!

If you like drawing cards play Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain. So fun. She has a bit of a target on her back but not terrible. Reckless Fireweaver might fly under the radar and chew away opponents. There's tons of lil combos, or just big flashy legends, etc

     We DO have a lot of mutual Commanders lol. A fellow man of culture, I see! Haha I actually really want to brew Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain as well.

     You've got some great builds, man. I especially like Morophon and Doran! =D

I have a Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain deck that is similar in the "solving a puzzle" aspect. Haven't posted it yet, but it's a blast to play as well.

You might wanna consider going an Arcane Adaptationor a Conspiracy, so that you can turn every creature that you have in your deck into a scarecrow even if they aren't scarecrows.

Seems like you want a lot of ETB effects, so you might consider getting a Thassa, Deep-Dwelling or a Conjurer's Closet so that you can blink them more often. Also there are a lot of blinking instants to help protect and get the effect popping more often like Cloudshift & Eldrazi Displacer.

If you want something big since you are running a creature deck, you could go Morophon, the Boundless & also Fist of Suns so that you can instantly just drop every creature that you have in your hand if you have the enchantment out that makes everything scarecrows, and then blow up the entire board.

Since you want specific cards out, you could also run some tutors (also since you have access to black), such as Diabolic Tutor, Beseech the Queen, and Idyllic Tutor (so that you can get those enchantments out easier). Since you are running 5 colors you could also run Bringer of the Black Dawn, which lets you pay one of each color to summon him, and then tutor stuff out to the top of your deck at your upkeep.

Since you are running a creature deck, you might want to consider Zendikar Resurgent for you doubling of mana, as it lets you draw a card whenever you play a creature.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain could be a good drawing engine for you, since everything is artifacts. Also you could consider going Mycosynth Lattice so that you make everything that you control and opponents control artifacts, so that combined with your Darksteel Forge will make everything that you have indestructible.

Also Hanna, Ship's Navigator is a much cheaper version of academy ruins for you, and its a creature which goes with your decks, and also lets you get enchantments back.

For your mana, I'll let you figure that one out kiddo.
