First thing first I hate to be that guy but, your commander would be better off being Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Feldon of the Third Path . Now I kinda hope you ignore that suggestion though.

My best suggestion is Sundial of the Infinite This turns anything temporary into something permanent. Exile at end of turn become "keep forever". Steal until end of turn becomes "Keep Forever". Anything that ruins your turn like cyclonic rift counter it with sundial.

Have fun going through and choosing stuff from the list and worst part of all cuts in your own deck.

I like Soothsaying with Jeleva. There are some really good new cards that would be fantastic with her. Blade of Selves. While you don't get her attacks, you do get her etb ability and the chance to use all those cards. Helm of the Host does give you an etb and an extra attack and trigger. I think if you ran a few smaller spells Thousand-Year Storm could be insane. I also like Oblivion Sower as Jeleva tends to hit a lot of lands. I also loved Contempt in my Jeleva deck to reset the cards in exile.

zdtsd Actually, I have tons of ways to make my creatures into tokens. Helm of the Host, Mimic Vat, Mirrorpool, Blade of Selves, Seance, and God-Pharaoh's Gift have been enough for me, and I just picked up Bramble Sovereign.

I used to have Desolation Twin, but I found that it was just too much mana, even for the sweet token. Also, making a token copy of it wouldn't allow me to get 2 per populate, because it's trigger is on cast, not when it enters the battlefield.

Also, in this deck, Advent of the Wurm would be a small token, not a big one.

Polyraptor sounds cool for the deck, even if the token is a bit small. I'll play around to see if it fits well.

Thank you for commenting, I really appreciate it! Sorry I didn't respond earlier; I kinda forgot I had put my deck up here.

You should add more lands and more mana ramp. Your average CMC is over 4 and you only have 34 lands and 4-ish mana ramp cards. There are also some cards that don't make a ton of sense in here as they don't make tokens or don't synergize with them. Cards like Brago, King Eternal, Ixidron, Always Watching and kinda Blade of Selves and Ephara, God of the Polis don't seem to do much. I suppose Ephara draws you cards on your opponent's turn and could draw you some extra cards if you play an instant copy spell so she's alright. Blade of Selves doesn't make sense to me because the tokens don't stay around. I see a few decent ETB effects on creatures in the list but I honestly think Helm of the Host would be a better card in here. The helm makes tokens that stick and you could equip it to Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun to make multiple things unblockable each combat.

Also there seems to be a split between whether this deck wants to be a go big tokens deck or a go wide tokens deck. I suppose you can have both, but I would definitely lean towards going big and cut one of the two mono-white gods (probably Oketra). With that in mind I would look to add some Eternalize cards. Adorned Pouncer seems really good in here, as does Champion of Wits, Sinuous Striker, and Sunscourge Champion. Vizier of the Anointed would also be a card to consider if you add in some of the Eternalize cards. I would cut some of the less good go-wide cards for them.

Also adding in some card draw could be a good idea. You're pretty low on it right now.

So in sum, cut cards that don't make sense with the deck, add in more lands, ramp, and card draw, and maybe look into eternalizing some stuff.

Cards Missing From Initial Build

Goblin Welder Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain Thopter Engineer Thopter Squadron Blade of Selves Coldsteel Heart Commander's Sphere Retrofitter Foundry Vedalken Orrery Treasure Map  Flip Fire Diamond Sky Diamond Thirst for Knowledge Gamble


More Removal/Wipes Blasphemous Act - Staple Release the Gremlins - Gives more tokens Rapid Hybridization, Pongify - Staples and can give yourself a 3/3 token Meteor Golem - High CMC, but can destroy Enchantments which is a huge weakness of the deck.

Master Transmuter - Cheats out your big artifacts, but kind expensive.

Curse of Opulence - A weird staple for this deck, but I think you can figure out why.

Pirate's Pillage/Pirate's Prize - Draw and tokens, maybe


Think about how fast you can make tokens. Does it make Purphoros, God of the Forge worth it?

Check through what effects require set up and make sure you don't have too many compared to stand alone cards. Even though Krark-Clan Ironworks does ramp, I wouldn't count it as ramp because it requires set up. Same goes for Storm the Vault  Flip (But you have 36 actual lands which is totally fine)

Your curving out around 4, so 2 drop ramp spells are much more important than the other higher ramp spells. Iron Myr, Fire Diamond, Sky Diamond, Silver Myr, Coldsteel Heart fit the best imo.

Gamble, Mystical Tutor, Fabricate, maybe Hoarding Dragon (?) - Combos in decks are strong and fun, but really hard to pull of without a descent amount of tutors and/or redundancy. Ignoring combos, each tutor can search out a key cards.

Final Fortune - Speaking of combos. Great combo with Isochron Scepter and Sundial of the Infinite, but you should either cut this or add more tutors to make getting it a bit more consistent.

Dramatic Reversal - I don't think you have enough mana rock/dorks to get to infinite mana, and without that it's kind of a waste of a card.

These combos in general don't really synergize with the goal of the deck (infinite mana more than infinite turns) like an infinite token combo would. I think there is a combo with Scrap Trawler and Hangarback Walker that I vaguely remember that you might want to try to find.

Darksteel Colossus/Blightsteel Colossus are super strong, but don't really fit. If you can find more targets for Mimic Vat and Prototype Portal then maybe, but those 4 cards stick out.

Cuts (IMO)

Everflowing Chalice - I always go colored mana over colorless if it costs the same, even if artifacts don't need it. It has potential to ramp you a bit more late game, but you usually don't need the ramp at that point.

Inspired Sphinx - 6 mana for a draw 3, maybe 4, and a hefty costed mana sink doesn't seem worth it to me.

Mycosynth Lattice - I might be missing something, but it seems a little narrow sited. It works a little with Darksteel Forge and Combos well with Hellkite Tyrant, but if the deck makes a bunch of tokens you don't need it to win with the Hellkite.

Panharmonicon - Same as Mycosynth Lattice. I might be missing something but there isn't a lot of ETBs to abuse this. I'm only counting 1 card that works: Thopter Spy Network


Cut Phyrexia's Core -Negligible effect unless you have a consistent way to abuse LTB triggers.

Caldera Lake - There are far better lands.

Swiftwater Cliffs - Its fine if you want to stay budget.

Reliquary Tower - I don't see a way for you to draw a bunch of cards and overflow your hand, so this isn't really needed.

Add City of Brass Reflecting Pool Mana Confluence - All staples in multicolored decks. Spire of Industry too for artifact decks, but is super cheap.

Izzet Guildgate and Highland Lake - Better, and cheaper, than Caldera Lake if you want to stay budget

Scalding Tarn - Obvious include if you want to spend the money.

Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse - Color fixing

Myriad Landscape is a 2 land fetch and taps for mana.

Overall, good base. It has potential to go from 0 - 100 and kill everyone out of nowhere.

Wurmlover it's great to finally see someone paying attention to the topic before anwsering the question.

As for my usual play styles in other format here's the "list" I was able to come up with.

Sealed (pre-release/draft) : I always try to find the early rush in my packs. Jumping to my opponents throat before they can even make a move.

Standard : I use to play a dino deck with Ghalta, Primal Hungers and other big ass dino and be super aggressive.

Edh (sort of casual) : I'm the invisible player, the one that if you forgets and don't pay attention to me I'll slit your throat before you can even blink (yeah i know nasty type of decks). After a few turn in the shadows I'll either mill them to death or pull a 12/12 infect with Blade of Selves out of nowhere and otk everyone(keeping a few counter spells in case). Only one of my decks is a beat face equipment deck with Akiri, Line-Slinger // Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder at the helm.

Hope that helps

Hi, looking at the deck it seams kinda interesting. However I only see two demons? I get that you are trying to clone and reanimate them but only having two targets seams a bit lackluster. It also does not seams like you are running any sac outlets witch will help. I believe you are running to many lads as well. 40 is a high count. I would trim some down and run a few mana rocks. Sol Ring Dimir Signet are on the cheaper ends, if you are on a budget. They give you flexibility and are very useful to ramping you towards your game plan. Also, some demons I may suggest are BIG DADDY himself Razaketh, the Foulblooded Rune-Scarred Demon to help search. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled ( Ob , can be a very mean card but if only used to keep in check a life gain deck he is not that bad.) Also Shadowborn Apostle (They are kinda pricey but just go to your local LGS (Local game store) and i'm sure you can find them in the bulk boxes.) These are all just suggestions. Ohh one more note , with Thief of Sanity and Etrata, the Silencer Blade of Selves Is awesome !!
