Haunt (When this card is put into a graveyard from play, remove it from the game haunting target creature.)
When Belfry Spirit enters the battlefield or the creature it haunts is put into a graveyard, put two 1/1 black Bat creature tokens with flying into play.

Belfry Spirit Discussion

Mitotic Slime comes to mind. Reef Worm is sorta like that, but in the wrong colors. Abzan Ascendancy/Golgari Germination/Gutter Grime/Requiem Angel are sorta close, Belfry Spirit turns the creature it haunts into a card like that, Brindle Shoat, Tuktuk the Explorer and Doomed Dissenter just get bigger. Liege of the Hollows gives everyone squirrels when it dies. Symbiotic Elf, Symbiotic Beast, and Symbiotic Wurm turn into insects. Chasm Skulker explodes into a pile of squid (wrong colors again tho). Maalfeld Twins breaks apart into 2 zombies, and Mausoleum Guard into 2 spirits. Promise of Bunrei makes one of your dudes explode into spirits. Sporogenesis is kind of a cool card that makes your guys explode into saprolings on death. Sprouting Thrinax is good. Wurmcoil Engine is a popular one.Goblin Marshal/Mogg War Marshal makes goblins when he ETBs and dies. Hallowed Spiritkeeper, Hangarback Walker, and Hooded Hydra all work. Jotun Owl Keeper in blue again. Mongrel Pack is another one, as is Murder Investigation. Theres a whole bunch of "Penumbra" cards from odyssey that all make a black clone of themselves when they die (e.g Penumbra Wurm). Ulvenwald Mysteries turns each dead guy into a clue that it then turns into a soldier.
If I were to make a commander deck around this idea, I would go with a Jund, not Abzan, sacrifice deck led by Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, or perhaps Shattergang Brothers. In addition to these you have a ton of guys that just make 1 token on death- Seed Guardian, Sifter of Skulls, Pawn of Ulamog, Tukatongue Thallid, Blisterpod, Myr Sire, etc.

I'm not quite sure what the focus of the deck it, it's a little all over the place. You have some sacrifice, but you don't have an awful lot that takes advantage of it. If you're making tokens to sacrifice, then it seems counter intuitive with running Intangible Virtue. You're making your tokens powerful, but then sacrificing them. The deck would be so much stronger if you focused more on one thing, and really strengthen it.
Firstly, if you want sacrifice, then think about running Zulaport Cutthroat, not as good as ze ol Blood Artist of course, but as you can't run 8 Artists, the Cutthroat does okay lol. So, if you want to be sacrificing, then you want cards that can take advantage of it. Things such as Bloodsoaked Champion, Carrier Thrall, Bloodghast (if you've got some serious money to throw at it), even Vengevine (again, money... it's grimly expensive). Things like that. Or if you want a more zombie feel, Gravecrawler with Sultai Emissary and, Geralf's Messenger which I love.
For tokens you have Carrier Thrall... sort of... Here are some token themed cards to thinnk about (some better than others lol)
You can run Doomed Traveler which I love, Myr Sire which I don't love so much lol Hallowed Spiritkeeper is awesome if you're a little more creature heavy, but awesome anyway I think. I know I know, not enough owls, well, here you go :D Jtun Owl Keeper! Promise of Bunrei is great value and works well in a sac deck. Elgaud Inquisitor and Mausoleum Guard aren't all that good, but decent sac outlets, and make tokens of course. Or add a little cruelty to the deck with Seize the Soul, and Belfry Spirit.
IronApparition is right with Viscera Seer being a really sweet sac outlet, but there are others if you want something a little different. Bloodthrone Vampire lets you sac and she can get mighty big for potential novas! If you did go more vampire based Cliffhaven Vampire works well along the Artist and the Cutthroat. I'm also partial to a one of Vampiric Rites, not a free outlet, but it draws cards!
Anyway, that's probably enough for now lol, stuff to think about at least.

Lightform and Cloudform are interesting, since if you exile the morphed creature with Brago's ability they will flip, allowing you to play expensive creatures more cheaply. Other ways to make your spells cheaper are Urza's Incubator and Semblance Anvil. Skeleton Key is probably not as good as Invisibility, although if you want the card draw use Bident of Thassa or Mask of Memory. Working with Brago's ability, you could try Sandsteppe Outcast or Belfry Spirit for more tokens. Spirit Bonds might work. Maybe. Things that should probably go: Ribbons of the Reikai, Mycosynth Wellspring, Phantom Flock, Rally the Ancestors, Act of Authority, Well of Ideas. All of these could work, but they're too circumstantial or high-costing.

Well, for starters, 42 is a really high land count. EDH decks generally run between 32 and 40 lands. I'd suggest going 36 to 38 when in doubt. You should basically never run Temple of the False God. Howltooth Hollow will never activate in EDH. Ever. Run a basic plains over New Benalia.
Aurora Eidolon is terrible. Faithful Squire requires you to jump though hoops for it to be decent. Nantuko Husk is super limited. Never run defenders in EDH. You want to be more proactive. That means Souls of the Faultless is a no no. Baleful Eidolon, Celestial Archon, Dreadbringer Lampads, Ghostblade Eidolon, Crawling Filth, He Who Hungers, and Moonlit Strider are not really good enough for EDH. Daxos's Torment and Genju of the Fens require you to jump through hoops. Quarantine Field, Seance, Beckon Apparition, Dawn to Dusk, Planar Outburst, Seize the Soul, Dark Dabbling, Gravepurge, Macabre Waltz, March of the Returned, Midnight Recovery, Morbid Plunder, Belfry Spirit, Doomed Traveler, Elgaud Inquisitor, Mausoleum Guard, and Sandsteppe Outcast all deserve to be cut.

I'm wondering if anyone has any privs regarding the ability to edit or remove alters submitted by other users. Mainly because I'm going through the alters database trying to find any NSFW ones, but plenty of other stuff appears.
- Alters that are just portraits of some random artwork, no actual card information.
- Actual non alter cards that we have in our regular database.
- Recently spoiled cards that aren't in our database yet (cause they haven't been confirmed).
- Custom cards (Epoch has stated our stance on custom cards, don't upload them through the alters system).
Some examples (but are not limited to) include:
- Awakening Zone (Alter uploaded for the zone).
- Avenger of Zendikar
- Avenger of Zendikar
- Azami, Lady of Scrolls
- Azami, Lady of Scrolls
- Belfry Spirit (Alter uploaded for Belfry Spirit)
- Blasted Landscape
In other news, could we perhaps have a requirement to have a non-image url in the source? I'm finding a lot of users just posting "google" or the exact image url for their source, and not the site they got it from.
Finally, page 7 of the alters database gives me Ornithopters.
