Back from the Brink could be really useful since I don't have any creature recursion. It at least gives me access to the creatures again, and likely another Wizard ETB.

Soulblade Djinn is a maybe. If I get infinite spells cast in a turn, but am unable to deck myself, this dude at least gives my Wizards infinite power and toughness, which means I may be able to swing in for the kill. But without Trample, it seems too easily stopped by a swarm of birds or angels.

The others seem like too high a CMC cost for what they do. I could definitely see myself cutting Mercurial Pretender or Quasiduplicate for Clone Legion , though.

And thank you for the kudos! I tried to build this one very formulaically, and I think it worked out.

Your thoughts on Back from the Brink , Soulblade Djinn , Clone Legion , Salvager of Secrets , or Scholar of the Ages ?

Your list has surprisingly few places you can properly make a cut btw without losing the "amatuer versatility" of it. Kudos to you.

What are your methods for "abusing" his proliferate ability. He has to die for the ability to trigger, which means you are letting him go to the graveyard instead of using the commander's replacement affect and putting him in the command zone.

I think you should think of ways to abuse him while he's on the board instead of hoping he will die and getting a single trigger. Progenitor Mimic , Rite of Replication , Followed Footsteps , Back from the Brink , and any clones are great with this commander to really abuse the effect.

Hey elgosu1337!

Just finished remodeling my own Brudiclad deck. My list is here, please check it out if you have time, let me know what you think. I really like your list! It has some great choices that I didn't think of, like Combat Celebrant , Genesis Chamber and Oketra's Monument . I am thinking of further balance changes and have been adding cards to my maybeboard to boot. Some cards that I would heavily recommend because they have such amazing utility are:

Trading Post :The versatility on this card is amazing. Recurring artifacts, making goats, discarding cards into the grave when needed and the fact that you can do it all at instant speed to keep your options open has made me really fall in love with this card.

Sai, Master Thopterist : Efficient Construction that's a little cheaper and has card draw if needed.

Mishra's Self-Replicator :This thing sets up a huge board of tokens by itself. It is a little costly to start, but it gets very threatening fairly fast.

God-Pharaoh's Gift / Back from the Brink :Lastly, these two are certainly meant for long games, but they are amazing options for attrition wars or that option that can get you to a game-winning play out of nowhere.

Back from the Brink -> Dance of Many

Sulfur Falls -> Mountain

Back from the Brink might be a good card actually (I never actually drew it), but Dance of Many is just such a cheaper token maker. I cut Sulfur Falls because it's hot in standard, and I'll buy it back when it falls :)

Some ideas in no particular order, and by no means should you use all of them: Fell the Mighty, Meekstone, Beast Within, Song of the Dryads, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Garruk Wildspeaker, Vivien Reid, Primal Rage, Archetype of Imagination, Leyline of Anticipation, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Concordant Crossroads, Enlightened Tutor, Back from the Brink, Reinforcements, Return to the Ranks, Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, Tree of Redemption, Wall of Frost, Wall of Ice, Wall of Junk, Wall of Shards.

I'd cut Venser, the Sojourner, Mystic Remora, Sylvan Library, Natural State, Mana Leak, Preordain, Ponder, Fragmentize, Beast Whisperer, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Orator of Ojutai, Portcullis Vine, Logic Knot.

I will note, it looks like you're playing in a highly competitive meta (Ponder, Sylvan Library, Flusterstorm, Carpet of Flowers, etc). My alterations are decidedly for a slower meta, because in my experience combat victories are a function of the speed of your opponents. Regardless, I have no idea how Arcades functions in cEDH, so take all of my recommendations with a grain of salt.

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

Cheers!
