Still trying to figure out if this is more a meme or intended to be competitive deck.
If you're trying to win (or as you say not lose) tournaments, you know that (generally speaking) focusing on one strategy is always better than throwing together a bunch of unrelated ones right?
Consider two scenarios:
(1) You play two different combos 2 A + 2 B and 2 C + 2 D. Mathematically, there are 4 ways to draw AB and 4 to draw CD, 8 ways total.
(2) You just swap out CD for more copies of the first combo, that is 4 A + 4 B. Now there are 16 ways to draw AB. Probabilistically this means the second scenario gives you almost double the chance of drawing a combo and winning.
To give a specific example, the additional Spike Feeder/Sunbond/Providence combo makes very little sense in your deck. Sunbond does literally nothing without Providence/Spike Feeder since your deck has no focus on life gain. And even when you manage to assemble the elusive combo, your fragile creature just dies to any removal spell. If you simply replace that combo with tutors for Cat Cannon, you'll have a better chance of assembling Cat Cannon than your current chance of assembling either combo combined! Also it's just a better combo.
(For reference, I'm a veteran deck builder. I've designed several decks that became tier 1-3 and have also ranked among the top magic players in past seasons.)
