Cards I would strongly consider: Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Chandra's Ignition, Blightsteel Colossus, Nissa, Vital Force, and Sol Ring, instead of Fellwar Stone?

As far as cuts go, that's pretty hard! All of these cards are fun. But I might take out Lightning Greaves, Somberwald Sage, Giant Adephage, and Karn, Scion of Urza.

Of those, I feel Lightning Greaves is the easiest cut, as it isn't in there to protect your general (who does a good job of that anyway) and you have so many threats and tutors for those threats that it doesn't matter if they get removed. In addition, when it's equipped to a creature, you can't target the creature with Xenagos's ability anyway.

So the immediate problem I see is that you're trying to run legendary and non-legendary cards together as a theme, while I think it can work just fine, it'll be very difficult to fit a tertiary theme, and it will be finicky sometimes because they will kinda of grind against each other. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker only works with non-legendary creatures. If you get a few non-legendary creatures out with Jalira, Master Polymorphist and have Heroes' Podium it's going to feel kind of bad, but it'll feel pretty good to have a it with a bunch of legends. Mirari's Wake might fit better for you.

SO relatively, I only added white pretty recently and I only have 5 white cards. Felidar Guardian because it's basically twin combo with Saheeli Rai, but also works with Kiki-Jiki, Restoration Angel I view as a protection spell that just happens to work with Kiki-Jiki. Tamiyo, Field Researcher (combos with Doubling Season and is good value), Anointed Procession (more Doubling Season/Parallel Lives effects), and Teferi's Protection (should be in every deck that can run it as it protects from Cyclonic Rift).

So if I hadn't changed this deck recently I could probably use some of your ideas and then I'd put in Village Bell-Ringer but I don't actually have a reason to just untap most creatures for just value if I need to, having only 5 creatures with Untap abilities anymore, and they are more just either combos themselves or combo protection. Say if I have Tidewater Minion and Kiora's Follower and I go to combo off with Minion and someone just Doom Blade's it I can use Follower to untap Minion and then just float literally billions of mana, here I could use Village Bell-ringer and it'd be the same thing, but Kiora's Follower can untap land for me as well, Bell-ringer can't normally, for me. So if you have more activated abilities Bell-ringer will work for you, and I'd also recommend Thousand-Year Elixir and Illusionist's Bracers if you're not already running them.

I don't play cards that can give my opponents value. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis is the only thing I run basically just for colors. I have to be in a tight spot in order to actually cast it, and it should be a partner commander combination but I had been at such a loss of what even to take out of the deck in order to get a partner combination in here. So I don't play cards like Selvala, Explorer Returned because she gives too much value to opponent's, and again I don't even play K&T unless I have to and I'd rather have partner commanders.

Just make sure all your Twin combo targets can do other things, like, I don't run Breaching Hippocamp because it doens't provide enough for me, while others like Zealous Conscripts can just take someone's Planeswalker and ult them or someone else's kiki-jiki and win, I've used Deceiver Exarch to tap down Blightsteel Colossus and prevent an attack.

Homelessguy - Hey! Thanks for the comment. There are a few reasons why I have these artifact lands in this deck. Such as..... Sacrificing them with Kuldotha Forgemaster for easy fodder to search for a fattie, such as Blightsteel Colossus if the conditions are right to do so. Also, I have the option to tutor for them as well as having a multiple ways to bring them back to the yard; then my hand or the battlefield.

I mean, they don't get hit by stuff like Jokulhaups. But following one of those you should be landing something like a Blightsteel Colossus to finish the game quickly.

And if you're just running a planeswalker for their ultimate ability, then don't bother running them.

A have a lot of the eldrazi, but key cards i dont have include:Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, Eye of Ugin, Eldrazi Temple , Crawlspace , All Is Dust , Akroma's Memorial , Eldrazi Conscription among others. Let me say that i am a little envious. +1!! Even though infect isnt exactly the game here , and hes not an eldrazi, i feel like Blightsteel Colossus could be a good alternate win condition here. Maybe a good substitute to fill in for Colossus of Akros? I know its a little off flavor..

i know, i know, it will break budget. But imagine how effective a Mana Reflection would be. and i also like th budget aspect, as well. most mono green decks, sasaya especially, are expensive as hell to build. If you want to make the standard old beat the living daylights out of a person using Kozilek, Butcher of Truth/Blightsteel Colossus, which are each worth a ton. My favorite deck right now is an Omnath, Locus of Mana deck, and good golly was it expensive. It is effective as all get out, though, and a great alternative to the "Only good decks", combo decks. Keep up with the good work.
