Akroan Horse Discussion

Alright what ya do is have marionette master and obviously stick all counters on her. Then during your opponents turns / (BEFORE) whenever a creature would die: flash in the small 0-1 cmc artifacts you have and then sac them (Mishra's Bauble and friends is really nice because it can sac itself) This triggers the drain from Master and glissa returns the artifact from the yard into hand. This can be done multiple times per turn depending on how many things die. This can be turned into a pretty fast clock if combined with Verdurous Gearhulk by adding to the masters power. If master gets above 10 power and is not answered it usually ends up game winning. Some of the best cards I know of for this deck to give opponents creatures is: Forbidden Orchard & Akroan Horse. Hope this all made sense let me know if you need anything.

Hey gang, first thread here so please feel free to provide any constructive criticism! Haven't been active in a forum for quite some time..
Anyways, I'm contemplating sort of an odd strategy to utilize Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa as a general. I'm considering Vial Smasher the Fierce or Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist as his partner. Right now it seems like black brings more to the table for this particular strategy and I love b/w removal options but it's possible there are things I've overlooked in blue, and Ludevic insentivizes the kind of thing I'm going for and gives me access to Edric, Spymaster of Trest for total craziness!
The main strategy of this deck would be to give my opponents little 1/1 and 2/2 tokens to hit each other with providing evasion with Kondo, maybe turn up the heat with goad and goad-like effects while trying to deter combat damage directed to myself with cards like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Crawlspace, Dictate of Erebos, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Mystic Barrier. You get the picture!
Mob Rule, Insurrection, Army of the Damned and Massacre Wurm are possible win conditions and Overseer of the Damned, Blood Artist, Soul Warden, Vicious Shadows, and Revel in Riches benefit from a carnage of etb and death triggers. I can also benefit from the Commander 2017 curses so that's something to consider as well!
What I feel I need the most help with is cards that put tokens into the battlefield under an opponent(s) control. They're definitely a corner case and it's not entirely easy to do a search for them either seeing how the wording varies quite a bit for cards that do this!
Some I've found are:
- Akroan Horse
- Hunted Dragon (as well as others within the 'hunted' cycle)
- Alliance of Arms
- Sylvan Offering
- Tempt with Vengeance
- Infernal Genesis
- Reality Shift
- Goblin Spymaster
I'd also love to hear some interesting synergies if someone comes up with any! This will definitely be a casual deck so no suggestion is too outside of the box, please feel free!
P.S. ooooooh! I just discovered Mogg Infestation!!

Hi, I like your deck idea!
You could also enchant an opponents land with Squirrel Nest, but this probably won't work if the opponent already knows what's going on.

Here's some ideas:
If an opponent has a poison counter, Throne of Geth can proliferate them to death. Throw in some planeswalkers for bonus points proliferating loyalty. Are there any energy cards worth proliferating?
Sending a Jinxed Idol to the opponent would encourage them to sacrifice their own critters to prevent the damage, but speed up the Treasure clock. Seems like it would be too casual.

Is there something I'm missing about this Akroan Horse? It just seems to give your opponent's creatures. Nice deck, though. +1

Well of Ideas can add more draw power to the party.
Ghirapur Orrery seems like a good fit as well, all that draw power will put land in hand.
Unless you intend to use Spectral Searchlight on the weakest person, I don't think it's quite friendly enough. Akroan Horse would be fun to pass around. Luminarch Ascension would be harmless but potentially lifesaving endgame card. Assemble the Legion could also be a good one. If you are running Sphere of Safety and Ghostly Prison, Norn's Annex and Crawlspace are in the same vain.

The two easiest ways to control an Akroan Horse would be either playing one and in response to it's enter the battlefield effect activating Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or simply having an opponent play one and target you with it's ability.

It's pretty interesting. First, however, since Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker can only target a creature you control you have to figure out how to gain control of an Akroan Horse. Let's assume you're able to do that. When you make a copy, the token's enters-the-battlefield ability will trigger and an opponent will gain control of it. When Kiki Jiki's delayed triggered ability tells you to sacrifice the token at the end of the turn, you can't, because the rules of the game only allow you to sacrifice permanents you control. The token copy stays on the battlefield.
