Sisay's Ring

I don't think I'm interested in Jhoira's Familiar in this deck. If you reliably cast two historic spells each turn, then it's essentially Sisay's Ring as it is providing you with two generic mana. If you reliably cast three spells each turn, then it's Thran Dynamo. I suppose it has some upside being a creature with flying, but it also has some downsides since it can't help us cast our non-historic spells. It's good in a deck where you can reliably cast two or more historic spells in a turn, especially in artifact decks where you can combine it with other similar effects and start casting artifacts for zero mana. In this deck, however, I think we are only occasionally casting more than one spell per turn. I think we are normally tutoring with Buttercup and hopefully casting one additional spell. If I decide I want another ramp piece, then I either want to bring back Deathbloom Gardener for the deathtouch synergies or another 2-mana ramp piece that can produce multiple colors. Something like a Fellwar Stone would be one of my next considerations.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain on the other hand would be a very good fit. It's another legendary with two colors, so it pumps Buttercup's power by 2. And more card draw is always good. My budget-minded side wants to swap this card in and take out Reki as that would save me at least $5.00. But the deck builder inside me never wants to cut card draw and knows there are weaker cards I could remove. It's a dilemma...

At this point the weakest non-Princess Bride card is Lord Skitter, Sewer King which is only included for the flavor of buffing our Rodents of Unusual Size (Pack Rat). And, yes, I absolutely plan to tutor for Lord Skitter if I draw the Rodents, even though it will never be the smartest move if my goal is to win. The ultimate goal, of course, is to have fun with Princess Bride cards, although I am trying to win some games along the way. So it's a balance between optimizing the deck for power while still "optimizing" for flavor.

All that to say I believe Jhoira deserves a slot but I'm struggling to decide what to remove! Any suggestions are welcome. Perhaps something will come to me after more playtesting...

It is solid. I am yet to venture down the colorless path but I keep seeing more decks posted. Zhulodok, Void Gorger is the push I needed to try it out.

Only card I don't like is Sisay's Ring. Voltaic Key would be more value for less and would look right alongside all those Vintage mana rocks.

Distribute X -1/-1 counters among any number of creatures.

Make a ring (Sol Ring, Sisay's Ring, etc). The only requirement is that it produces and is an artefact. It may have other abilities or manacost.

Khalni Gem and Firemind Vessel so you have more ways to cast Reshape for Worldslayer. Maybe even Sisay's Ring to replace Thran Dynamo if you need to hit a lower budget.

I think dedicating more cards to ramping in and protecting Gisela would make your list a little stronger. You don't need so many pillowfort cards since Gisela prevents half the damage dealt to you. Also you don't need so many beaters since Gisela can take players out pretty quickly on her own, especially if she's dropping in faster. Personally I would make the following swaps:

Parhelion II -> Generator Servant
Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas -> Ur-Golem's Eye
Lyra Dawnbringer -> Sisay's Ring
Angel of Serenity -> Palladium Myr
Drakuseth, Maw of Flames -> Treasonous Ogre
Windborn Muse -> Coalition Relic
Ghostly Prison -> Monologue Tax
Thalia's Lancers -> Flawless Maneuver
Thundersong Trumpeter -> Lightning Greaves
Ilharg, the Raze-Boar -> Ogre Battledriver
Baneslayer Angel -> Bloodsworn Steward
Stalking Leonin -> Bastion Protector
Gisela, the Broken Blade -> Manabarbs
Bruna, the Fading Light -> Burning Earth
Cathartic Reunion -> Tome of Legends
1x Mountain -> Bonders' Enclave
1x Plains -> War Room
