Yeah, you got it. The mana pips each represent one year of membership here on T/O. :)
Happy holidays to you, too!

You will not find a precon that fits your theme. It boils down to desired effects vs color combinations. Decks that rely heavily on opponent to discard and draw to trigger effects are typically Grixis, not Orzhov. The specialty in Orzhov is generating value from creating and sacrificing creatures, and spot removal.
You may want to look a bit more into archetypes and established decks before going out on a limb with your own brew.
Before you start ordering cards, (especially expensive ones) playtest your deck at least 50 times using the Playtest feature on this site, and if at all possible against opponents. You may avoid buyer's remorse.

Sigarda is my favourite Voltron!
I find that by chosing to go all in with auras, you may be overlooking interesting equipments, like Hammer of Nazahn for the sweet indestructible or Haunted Cloak that gives your commander everything else she needs and doesn't have.
If you stick with enchantments only, you could add Abundance, which combos nicely with Sylvan Library, allowing you to keep all 3 cards you draw each turn.
A great asymmetric board wipe for this deck is Single Combat.
Hope this helps!

Sounds like TriusMalarky is playing in a high-powered or competitive meta. Thanks for your clarification.
Again, it is paramount to ensure everyone around the table is playing the same game. Infinite combo is not welcome in my group.

I got skipped! Viera you did not comment on my deck as you were supposed to.

I am only saying this because you mentioned this is your first Commander deck: going down the infinite combo route and playing this many tutors will result in very similar games for you. If consistency is your focus that can be a good thing, but if it is your only deck it can get repetitive fast.
In most cases, Memory Jar makes all your opponents draw 7 and discard 7 cards when you trigger it. That can be a win for you with the right setup.. I second Bloodchief Ascension as mentioned above, with or without Mindcrank.
Consider adding either Teferi's Protection or Flawless Maneuver. You may want to Invest some space for spot removal like Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking or Despark. As for mass removal, you may find Winds of Abandon more satisfying than Fumigate if you have a board.
Finally, I think you would like Sangromancer. I do.
Hope you find something useful, welcome to the Commander format!

I will comment on the deck itself, but the best advice I could give to a new Commander player is all encompassed in a series of articles by Suns_Champion: https://tappedout.net/mtg-articles/2020/apr/1/edh-deck-building-process-1/
One thing that you can't underestimate is the importance of discussing with your playgroup what power level they are playing. Typically in experienced groups there is a consensus between friends, to play competitive or not, and what is acceptable, are there house rules, etc.
If you come in too weak or too powerful that can make for a long evening.

Cool thematic deck, looks fun to play.
I don't know your card pool or budget, but I prefer relying on fetches and shocks than having the 3-colored slow lands. Whenever I see a mana base with this many lands that enter the battle field tapped I can't help but think of Amulet of Vigor. An Enlightened Tutor could allow to find it early and still be helpful in late game. A City of Brass or a Mirrodin's Core could come in handy.
Arguably, Song of the Dryads is a stronger removal than Kenrith's Transformation. Three Visits is faster than Spoils of Victory, you can fetch a Triome (or a shock land) and play it for free on turn 2. You can Fetch 2 Triomes with Krosan Verge.
Hope some of this helps!

Still under construction, need your advice for cuts!
Inspired by the mechanics that feed into either commanders' abilities, in addition to the fact that Tormod gets a trigger every time DePietro is activated.
DePietro ability synergies : Cycling, Transmute, Retrace
Tormod ability synergies : Retrace, Flashback, Aftermath, Persist, Delve, Dredge
Meta is casual multiplayer (mid-powered, high budget). Absolutely no infinite combos allowed.

My deck is very different but maybe you'll find other inspirations, like Avenger of Zendikar.

Thank you Last_Laugh for your comment.
You must have been reading the thread and picked up on the Vampire Nocturnus discussion, but you will notice he is no longer in the deck. Between several new Vampires being printed and reworking the synergies, it ended up being cut.
The idea of this deck is to build an army an mount attacks. I don't think Purphoros fits well in this deck. I play it in decks like Zensunni Wanderers | Hazezon Tamar where it really delivers value and can be a wincon. Here I expect it would feel cumbersome in mid to late game.
I am not sure I need more tutors, if I did I would lean towards Academy Rector more than anything else.
If I were to add a card, what would you suggest that I cut?
January 5, 2021 5:28 p.m.
I can appreciate this type of deck, having one similar. Without erasing your own personality from the build, I do feel some staples warrant your attention:
Your Dictate of Karametra is begging to be Mana Reflection. Get it now while it is cheap. Not as easy on the budget, but you should definitely add Parallel Lives. Terror of the Peaks has an effect similar to Purphoros while also being a flying threat. you could shift the card advantage from the whole table to yourself only by switching Howling Mine for Guardian Project. Conjurer's Closet can give you ETB triggers every turn, triggering Purphoros/Terror of the Peaks and Guardian Project, all doubled by your Panharmonicon.
If you don't have recursion for the Lotus Petal, maybe an Arcane Signet would be more useful.
Hoping this is helpful!

Every once in a while, I discover a card I was unaware of that holds great promise. Often, play testing, mana curve issues and other factors end up proving me wrong.
Somehow, I believe this time the card will hold up to my expectations. I refrained from getting multiple copies, as I will wait to see how it performs here before peppering many decks with it.
