ksleazy on Yarok ETB Control

Great list!

A few cards I play in my Yarok deck that are straight beasts are Arcane Artisan , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , and Leyline of Anticipation .

Enabling instant speed ETBs is super powerful and a ton of fun ;)

Temur Sabertooth is a must include IMO, it puts in a ton of work and is a pain in the ass for your opponents to destroy.

I was playing around with a giant list a little while ago, and the conclusion that I came to is that Jeskai Giants (Jeskai Jiants?) led by Ruhan of the Fomori is the best build, since you can use on-board tricks like Shapesharer , Vesuvan Shapeshifter , Renegade Doppelganger , Artisan of Forms , Arcane Artisan , Cryptoplasm , and Call to the Kindred along with copy effects like Quasiduplicate to skip over playing a bunch of mediocre Giants, instead copying the good 6+ mana ones the turn they come down. The nuts is copying an Arcane Artisan , and have it become your insane giant in response.

CavemanlyMan on Eldrazi Copy Win!

May I suggest Helm of the Host and Minion Reflector .

Also after looking into it some more here are some other cards I found: Arcane Artisan , Heat Shimmer , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Kindred Charge , Mirror March , Mirrorpool , Rite of Replication , Saheeli Rai , Soul Foundry , Twinflame , Zndrsplt's Judgment , Splinter Twin

Also I feel like you don't have a whole lot of the really good eldrazi. Obviously you are missing the eldrazi titans, but those cost a lot. Some other suggestions are It That Betrays , Thought-Knot Seer (has an enter the battlefield effect), Deceiver of Form , Breaker of Armies .

You might benefit from having a lot of copies of cards like Platinum Emperion , Platinum Angel or Void Winnower out on the battlefield at the same time, but I would say that deviates from your overall game plan.

squadcarxmar on Things that like things being ...

I don't think many things benefit from other things being specifically exile often. There is the wording "whenever X leaves play" instead of "dies," "destroyed," or "put into the graveyard."

Things I can think of with this are Twilight Drover , Extractor Demon , Arcane Artisan , Vela the Night-Clad , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor and a few more.

Mostly, they seem to not care where they end up but rather that they are no longer present on the battlefield. There are more leave play effects but they are more or less Oblivion Ring effects and whatnot or things like Varchild and Arcane Artisan where it just catches all things in case you were to lose that creature in another manner.

I can't help but feel Purgatory should be mentioned despite not being what you're really asking for.

Also Arcane Artisan seems like some cute tech if you put in maybe a Niv-Mizzet, Parun . Also instant speed gilded drake token seems like a really good way to get someone.

Not sure your budget, but these are some very useful cards for Brudiclad.

Want a nice Token maker? Arcane Artisan Makes Token-making easily as well as helps filter your hand. Feldon of the Third Path is one as well, except it doesn't require exiling a card.

For both of these, if you change all Tokens to the new token created by them, only the original ones directly created by them disappear.

Goblin Welder helps your retrieve artifacts and artifact creatures from the grave, even just by sacrificing a little thopter.

And finally Foundry Inspector is a nice cost reducer.

I have some suggestions, you can run Quicksilver Amulet to cheat creatures from hand or Thran Temporal Gateway , if you up the number of historic permanents. Or even Arcane Artisan for a similar effect.

You can run Gate to the AEther for a similar Braids effect. And some cards that grant flash to creatures, like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , to play Braids at the end of opponent turn.

As a finishing touch, you can run Blue reanimator cards like Hour of Eternity , God-Pharaoh's Gift , Argivian Restoration and Body Double , as a subtheme.

Joe_Ken_ on need with Jace Wizards

While technically not a wizard itself Docent of Perfection  Flip makes wizard tokens and when it transforms gives all your wizards a lord effect kind of buff. Arcane Artisan can help you cheat out some of your higher cost wizards as tokens and adds some more card draw. Temporal Adept can let you bounce any one permanent as long as you keep mana for it. Also since you are a mono-color deck consider Caged Sun and maybe Gauntlet of Power so your mana is doubled.
