Ral, Izzet Viceroy and Tomik, Distinguished Advokist are in a relationship - in the two cards linked, you can even see that Ral is carrying a piece of Tomik’s white cloth and Tomik a piece of Ral’s red cloth to indicate their connection.

This deck list isn't simply geared for a sprint for the win so there are questionable inclusions if that is what one is aiming for. Notably, I think the following can be replaced for stax pieces or CEDH staples.

The play patterns it consistently enables to allow extremely consistent development advantages is definitely the best upside to playing a Bloom Combo package. The cards are almost never dead in the way a Thassa's Oracle, Doomsday, or Aetherflux Reservoir can often be, don't slow down the speed with which the deck can employ it's primary combo lines, and provide an almost insurmountable board development lead in games that turn grindy and go long (which is most every game in competitive EDH settings these days given the crazy amount of cheap, effective interaction available for most of standard meta fast combo win lines).
Life from the Loam is a nice complementary piece to the concept and a card that fits in certain shells, but just lacks a suitable card slot in T&T variants due to the greater effectiveness of some of the hate pieces that provide more reliable boosts to win rate given the data we've collected. I still run Loam in the Tasigur shell variation of this concept, and would strongly recommend it's inclusion for any deck running this concept in strictly Sultai shells. I might also recommend it for Simic variations of this concept since the combo is less streamlined as it requires Trade Routes, Lotus Cobra, and often a land like Gaea's Cradle.
The concept was more of a group effort by my play group than a pure solo effort. I certainly had the initial idea for looping Summer Bloom, but as with most of the highly competitive stuff I post on Tapped Out the iterations that get posted are largely the product 4 minds that all played MTG at the professional level working together. The Inception concept was a similar idea that evolved within our playgroup as a means of besting a stale, stagnant competitive meta that's been rather lacking in innovation for the last few years. I'd love to be able to claim sole credit for the ideas, but that's just never been how things in our group have worked for most of the last 2 and a half decades. Tomik, Distinguished Advokist is our latest tech that we've been trying as a means of combating the insane effectiveness of the Bloom Combo concept, but not a card that holds much value when playing against less evolved standard competitive meta staples.

I think a Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper lands matters type deck could be really cool. I have a buddy who plays one that is basically a draw-go deck looking to wipe the board a bunch and take over the game as people lose resources. Cards like Tomik, Distinguished Advokist and Sacred Ground also give this type of deck redundancy. Not to mention the fact that Noyan's ability is so open, you can adjust your spells to be what you want, maybe putting in some weird jank.

Oh, and Tomik, Distinguished Advokist is a good sideboard or mainboard piece against the Lotus Bloom decks, plus he's a great aggressive card.
