Perpetual Timepiece Discussion

Also, what do you think of Perpetual Timepiece in the deck? (Sorry for asking so many questions)

Aight so we've got some cuts to make! So I think a good benchmark to shoot for off the bat is 36 lands and 64 non-lands, though with the sheer number of transform lands you have you might be fine at 34 or 35 - I would NOT recommend going that low until you've played a respectable number of games or playtest hands (probably at least 4 games and 30 playtest hands) and you have a solid understanding of how consistently you come in with too few lands.
As far as the cuts, I'd say drop: Rushed Rebirth , Ecological Appreciation , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Silent Sentinel , Resolute Archangel , Aegis of the Gods , Path of Discovery , Shapers' Sanctuary , Springleaf Drum , Perpetual Timepiece , Accomplished Alchemist , Call for Unity OR Collective Blessing (probably the latter), Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant / Rune-Tail's Essence , Elixir of Immortality , Heliod, God of the Sun , Huatli, Radiant Champion . I can give you my rationale one-by-one if you like.
Then add three lands, possibly modal spell-lands like Agadeem's Awakening Flip. Ideally, more of your lands should be multiple colours, as you have a large colour cost burden in black and white especially (lots of cards that need two or three of the same colour). The cheapest options are the snow taplands, guildgates, refuge lands (give 1 life when they enter the battlefield), and the showlands from Shadows over Innistrad and Strixhaven. There are definitely some mid-range lands that you can pick up for less than $10 that should be a high priority for you: Sunpetal Grove and Godless Shrine to fill out your buddy and shockland sets, the three scrylands a la Temple of Malady , Murmuring Bosk , Canopy Vista , and Scattered Groves . Since your deck doesn't currently have many ways to fetch basic lands, you really shouldn't have many since your colour demands are so high. Also definitely be on the lookout for legendary lands that fit into the deck well! Those will be sweet.

Have you tried out Syr Konrad, the Grim ? He's an absolute monster when I play sidisi and honestly one of my favorite cards to come out in the past couple of years. The card can win games on his own if it sticks or it can be comboed with something like Perpetual Timepiece .

thanks for your comments and suggestions
ironbrad I'm fairly happy with Gyruda being the only mill in the deck at the moment. Altar as another sac outlet could be great to dodge exile effects but I'd prefer it to be on a creature if I can. Perpetual Timepiece is a very good option for a safety valve. I'm back and forth on whether or not to include a shuffledrazi or Gaea's Blessing . 'Losing' my entire graveyard feels bad but this is a good compromise.
king-saproling Metamorph should probably be here over bog standard Clone but my only copy is in another deck. Progenitor Mimic is an upgrade too really so I should slot that in. I don't think I have enough instants to justify Gearhulk and Archaeomancer and I prefer having the card in hand given how cheap my options are.

Your topdecking/self-mill(ish) strategy is probably the right move, but just from an outside perspective it seems like Elvish Reclaimer would be useful here.
Other possibilities as I see it:
And then some cycling lands.
Sorry, don't know if any of this is at all helpful. Just liked the idea a lot and my mind went into build mode.

I play Kathril myself, but I focus entirely on the unbeatable Voltron strategy. However I'd lose Harmonize for Return of the Wildspeaker , and not just for this deck but in general. It offers so much better value in Commander for the extra mana. Also Underworld Dreams seems a bit out of place even if accounting for Sanguine Bond . I'd lose it alongside Wood Elves and Sunblast Angel . For those I'd add Underrealm Lich , he's great in pretty much any graveyard themed deck (I run him a bunch and he's always well worth his mana cost) and Perpetual Timepiece . It rarely gets targeted and keeps milling you constantly most of the time. Just my two cents :) for this fun commander.
