If I'm seeing this right, you're trying to get Deathbonnet Sprout  Flip transformed quickly, and Heirloom Mirror  Flip is the primary way to do that. Once that's done, you want to use Orcus, Prince of Undeath to bring back the low-cost creatures that flipped Sprout.

Dredge cards, like Greater Mossdog, can fill your graveyard quickly with discard and draw effects like Insolent Neonate or Faithless Looting.

Potential sequence:

T1 Deathbonnet Sprout, T2 Insolent Neonate, sacrifice Neonate and discard Greater Mossdog, then dredge Mossdog back to your hand instead of drawing. You now have five cards in your graveyard, so if you have a high enough concentration of creatures, there's a good chance you can transform Sprout on turn 2.

I would also consider some mana creatures: Wild Cantor, Llanowar Elves, or Elves of Deep Shadow for some thoughts.

amicdeep I'm glad you like it, and thanks for the suggestion! I agree on the deck being slow until turn 4 or 5. Wild Cantor may work, I'll do some playtesting with it.

first off really like the deck idea.

after play testing it a little there was one this that i felt the deck really lacked, ramp. witout a ramp package your struggling to be effective before turn 4. the only card i can think of that may work in that capacity while still working with deck is Wild Cantor. self sac for mana ands only 1cmc so maybe playable

This feels like the old Haakon, Stromgald Scourge combo lists that tried to abuse Basal Sliver and Skeletal Changeling.

There are definitely other combo lines that should play nice with this - Ashes of the Fallen would let you combo with Wild Cantor or Myr Moonvessel, Skirk Prospector/Universal Automaton would offer a second combo line for non-bombardment.

Enduring Renewal. I love the card, It is jank. The 'reveal your hand' is a massive drawback. Similarly, Kethis, the Hidden Hand felt close to working for similar but didn't quite.

This is an interesting idea. Wild Cantor type lists are always kinda cool, the question is what makes them tick. This one really wants to infernal plunge to 8 mana.

Going into Red / Black for Pentad Prism, Culling the Weak and Burnt Offering would be my take. Another option would be green for Orcish Lumberjack & Tinder Wall. There are a bunch of cards that let you cheat mana for one turn, but those sets are the closest to the rest of this build.

I think I'd just go 3/3 on crusher/devastator to increase reliability. I'd also give a little thought to It of the Horrid Swarm (though emerge is a neat mechanic that I'd want to check the cathodion ruling on).

Trying to keep your budget in mind I have several suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category. My main advice is if an effect is available on a creature, use it over other versions (i.e. Stratus Dancer over Negate).

Turn 2 Animar: Birds of Paradise , Wild Cantor , and Utopia Sprawl are all options.

Ramp: Lose your artifacts and look into several options like Rattleclaw Mystic (doubles as a combo piece with bounce enablers), Cloud of Faeries , and Peregrine Drake .

Bounce Enablers: Equilibrium and Temur Sabertooth for repeatable bounce. Shrieking Drake , Dream Stalker , and Man-o'-War for single target (including self).

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not cheap overall but Animar has several good options for reasonable prices. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

I gave Birds of Paradise a thought but it doesnt do anything besides enable T2 three-drops. If its not played on T1 than it really has no purpose & usually its best in most situations to get a triome to enable a 5/5 Territorial Kavu & 2 mana Scion of Draco . Wild Cantor serves the same purpose as a Birds of Paradise however it actually will trigger General Ferrous Rokiric if played later on. Plus people like to bolt mana dorks however Wild Cantor can be sac'd at instant speed so it's mana can be used for a removal spell.

Manamorphose gives the deck an ability to filter mana & draw, which helps greatly when we're looking for a land drops/gas along with triggering General Ferrous Rokiric . Without it, the deck is extremely top deck reliant outside of Territorial Kavu

Wild Cantor feels very much not good in this deck. I get that it filters your mana but i think i'd rather have Birds of Paradise or one of the two hierarchs instead since those cards both ramp and filter, especially cause this deck is kinda weak on turn two, skipping past it might be worth. If you want to go heavy into the t1 mana dork you could also remove manamorphose for either the second set of hierarchs or birds.
