Demarge on Teysa Death and Tokens

yeah I was considering it for my kaalia deck Heavenly Rakdos where the sac outlet could be Razaketh into a Phyrexian Altar and Fireball like spell. And now that I dig it is possible to replace the Conspiracy in a blue deck with the 3 cmc version that's still in standard or use Artificial Evolution to change bishop to proc off of spirits. It is a combo I stumbled into when I was giving suggestions on another kaalia list for just variety (I am also glad I bought a Conspiracy back when kaalia was first released and it was an under $1 card)

Now for another suggestion you could run the Oketra's Monument and Bontu's Monument for ramp on your creatures, while also getting some extortion and token making procs... that can be abused by creatures like Whitemane Lion !

Also now that I look you might want Orzhov Signet and Talisman of Hierarchy , Dark Ritual can also be powerful ramp which is sadly very important to the general power of commander (hence why green is so popular), all of these are generally cheap, there is also commander's quarters pet card Wayfarer's Bauble . they may not be as cool as gaining all the life and making all the morbid triggers, but they do make the mana cost of the combo more manageable.

really near deck idea. Ever consider Artificial Evolution? it'll let you change your commander to tutor for any creature type instead for a turn.

I had a deck like this back in 2013 when Arcane Adaptation wasn't arround. These two were really good: Unnatural Selection Imagecrafter

Also prowl spells work with Ultimus as he is a Rogue: Notorious Throng Knowledge Exploitation

You are also missing 4 lands: Mishra's Factory Blinkmoth Nexus Elephant Graveyard Swarmyard

For bonus points I used: Sun Quan, Lord of Wu - best way is to finish them off with fish riding horses

Back from the Brink - this is the only? way to get creatures back in mono U

Artificial Evolution - you can change Swarmyard to regen Merfolks, Wizards etc.

I remember not playing with Scion of Oona as it disabled all my Regens and pumps from lands Higure, the Still Wind seems like a fun addition also

removal spells - Harsh Mercy is a clear winner here. Along those lines, Kindred Dominance would also be good. Artificial Evolution works really well, like the Amoeboid Changeling you already have listed. Obviously Mutavault,Cavern of Souls and Collected Company are big winners, but pricier. I'm sure you've seen it, but Dormant Sliver is good at keeping the party going, even in the face of removal, Sidewinder Sliver helps overcome tiny deathtouch-ers, and Chameleon Colossus seems weird, but is a beefy beefy boy in decks like this.

I want to put together a sliver EDH, but you really gotta have the queen, and I just can't drop that much on one card. >.< Maybe I'm cheap, but really everything is just about priorities.

Anyway, I'm new to tappedout, so let me know what you think!

I've been looking at a similar sort of strat with Yuriko -- One spell that could be useful is Artificial Evolution which lets you change Yuriko's text to Rogue should you need to (like if AA is bopped). Also Mistform Wakecaster is another repeatable option to make everything ninjas if you need the redundancy. Great build!

Using Artificial Evolution as Fog effect? Pretty sneaky.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh after you've tapped to do a bunch of damage.

So, I've never even heard of Mistform Ultimus untill I saw this decklist, and I have to say that I am impressed! I really like seeing Artificial Evolution in a deck that realizes it's potential. It was a card I wanted to work so badly when I first got into EDH. I don't think I know of any recommendations after reading this decklist, but I would like to implore you to further develop this deck! It looks amazing and interactive and fun to play! +1 from me!

Not really a rules question, but you combine Artificial Evolution or Trickery Charm and Isochron Scepter or Imagecrafter with Spirit Mirror for repeatable creature destruction for .
