Your version of the deck looks fun! but here are a few suggestions. . .

1: the hunted cycle is really fun, but there are much better cards that do the same thing, like Genesis Chamber , Sylvan Offering , Captive Audience Akroan Horse , and many more. also [[]] synergieses SO WELL with Thantis, it's hilarious.

2: if you want to give your opponents tokens, you gotta tickle them a little when they come in, and with cards like Essence Warden , Blood Seeker , Rampaging Ferocidon , and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent , they're bound to say "thanks, you shouldn't have. . . really"!

3: If you want the TRUEST pain of all, you simply MUST try making it hurt more to attack you! the trio of pain Hissing Miasma , Blood Reckoning , and Marchesa's Decree will all but guarantee pain for the opponents! but if you want the creatures to hurt, try cards like Caltrops and Circle of Flame to lay on the pain!

In conclusion, your deck is sweet, I took some of the cards in here for my own deck, and I can't wait to see how your deck changes and adapts!

(p.s. Assault Formation could be good if you keep on the wall plan)

Amazing deck and presentation! Looks really pleasurable to pilot. I love all the synergies you've built between Haakon and Elenda.

Here comes a few suggestions I've in mind :

+1 btw!

I see what you are trying to do, and this deck should be reinforced with Whipflare , Mizzium Mortars , Electrickery and Pyroclasm in order to super buff your CMDR and have him deal lethal commander damage.

I think Devastating Dreams in here can ensure that no one will have any lands to respond to your giant CMDR. I highly recommend that you include more shroud/hexproof: Whispersilk Cloak , Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots and Glaring Spotlight .

Maybe Akroan Horse has a place here?

One last thing, mana rocks will be your best friend in this deck: Thran Dynamo , Rakdos Signet , Commander's Sphere and Talisman of Indulgence (there are many more you could choose from].

I know when first starting EDH, it is tempting to include every rare in your deck that you have. That shoudn't be the case here, things like Vanquisher's Banner Triskaidekaphobia , and Extractor Demon have little to no place here.

Good luck on this deck manifestation!

IAmTheWraith - the Spike in me says “find creatures that combo off one another for debilitating effects”, but my Johnny side decries the obvious answer.

Personally, I would try to mash Xantcha, Sleeper Agent or Akroan Horse with something particularly debilitating. That could be a painful ETB ability for Xantcha or a harmful ongoing effect for either.

Priest of the Blood Rite seems like a decent option with Akroan Horse - adding little to their creature’s power, yet leaving you a powerful demon.

@Boza Yeah, I think cards like Akroan Horse and Sleeper Agent were throwing me off. Both triggered abilities, both saying "you do X", and technically both work the same. But I guess if you Dominate a Sleeper Agent with the trigger on the stack your opponent still loses the life, not you. Some part of my brain gets its wires crossed when the creature still exists as its trigger is resolving.

Yore-Tiller Nephilim's ability should reanimate Xantcha, Sleeper Agent tapped and attacking to someone else's battlefield. Is Xantcha instantly removed from combat? Or does she continue attacking?

I'm curious because Xantcha's wording is different from say, Akroan Horse. The Horse is a trigger that would kick it out of combat, but Xantcha is an "as enters" effect.

Nightmare will probably be an expensive 2/2 most games unfortunately.

Would your friend think shapeshifters are cheating? Or creatures with Horsemanship? Or Flanking?
