Bounteous Kirin Discussion

Here's some spirits I can point out
Reminder of the good old Deadeye Navigator is a spirit and the onnas are etb trigger plus a couple of more
You can also put in spirit avatars in this deck as well https://scryfall.com/search?as=&order=&q=%28t%3ASpirit+t%3Aavatar%29
Ore Gorger = have fun removing the opponents stupid powerful non-basic lands.
Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar you choose from 3 chooses from a draw you choose the card for the situation going on and this is for every single dang draw.
You have a nice amount of enchantmentsEidolon of Blossoms feels sadden she's not in this Team
Eidolon of Countless Battles from the number of spirit tokens you make this is cute.
Drogskol Reaver seriously why is this not in the spirit usually have life gain and you can draw like crazy.
Ghostblade Eidolon oh great O-Karachi just has to make contact twice to eliminate someone from the game
Bounteous Kirin talk about life gain.
Infernal Kirin very classy you get to look at there hands and get a butt load of discard if you have the correct spirits
Last but not least Sekki, Seasons' Guide a huge 8/8 that makes spirits from damage and you can sac eight he's back on the board

Not to change the subject but I just re-discovered that the Kirin (Bounteous Kirin for example) are legendary. In the "spirit" of completely janky and "filthy casual" decks, between the kirin and legendary spirit dragon cycle how asinine would it be to build LEGENDARY SPIRIT TRIBAL with the terrible (according to most people) O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami at the helm?

Permeating Mass seems like an interesting 1-drop Spirit to include. Shuts down indestructible and other annoying creatures your opponents might choose to attack with.
Rend Flesh is on-theme and is far more effective removal than something like Tar Snare or Demon's Grasp.
Bounteous Kirin can really buffer your life total in conjunction with Iname as One's high mana cost and the slew of Spirits you're playing.
Forked-Branch Garami seems like powerful tribal recursion.
Petalmane Baku can fix your colors and ramp mana, which is important when you want to cast your 12-cmc commander.
Besides the fact that it is a staple mana fixer for EDH, Kodama's Reach is an Arcane spell, which has synergy with some of your effects, plus it's a flavor win.
He Who Hungers is a powerful counter to control decks, and provides an outlet for your weaker Spirits.
Soulless Revival is a superior Raise Dead because of the Splice onto Arcane ability.
Arashi, the Sky Asunder gives you repeatable flying removal, or one-shot flying board clear.
Death Denied provides even more recursion; plus it's an Arcane spell.
Haru-Onna is a pretty generous card advantage engine for Spirits.
Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse hits opponents' hands hard by exiling their cards.
Myojin of Night's Reach is another hard-hitting card disadvantaging Spirit.
Hana Kami is cheap and can be used to recur an Arcane spell for more Splicing shenanigans.
Wear Away is the Naturalize variant this deck can make the most use out of.
Great decklist! Very flavorful, and I love how these Kamigawa cards are being utilized!

Here's what I'd drop:
- Bounteous Kirin - It fits the deck's theme, mostly, but it's very mana intensive for a minor effect. Lifegain is good, but it won't win games.
- Crypt Ghast - I'd like this in your deck more if you had an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and even then, I wouldn't really like it. In a three color deck, his mana boost won't help nearly as much as it should.
- Divinity of Pride - This spirit isn't bad, but the mana cost kills it for me. You'll either have to not cast it in most circumstances or use up all of your white or black mana sources to cast it. It just doesn't do enough on its own.
- Faithful Squire - Doesn't really fit your theme, and the card isn't terribly good.
- Teneb, the Harvester - Not a bad card, but he needs to hit an opponent to have any effect and he doesn't fit the theme. He's just a bit too vanilla here.
- Swallowing Plague- it's a burn spell for removal, it won't do too much in commander. We can find better.
- Reins of the Vinesteed - You're likely to get 2-for-1'd, despite its ability. The ability is narrow and rather small. It just doesn't seem worth the slot.
- Death of a Thousand Stings - Five mana for one damage. It is really underwhelming. You can get better.
- Unchecked Growth - Pump spells are pretty weak in multiplayer, especially in commander.
- Seal of the Guildpact - It is ramp, but like Crypt Ghast, it's disproportionate. We can find you better ramp sources as your deck develops.
I'm also not a huge huge fan of most of the arcane instants and sorceries, but we can tackle those later on. As it stands, cutting these cards will give you a good start. Let me know what you think! And best of luck building.

Almost got it in three hours, I'm only like 20 minutes late.
Assuming a 6 tier system:
To be moved from T5 to T6: (Rationale: french-vanilla, overcosted with no pay-off, or just vitually no effect on the game.)
Akuta, Born of Ash, Anthousa, Setessan Hero, Baron Sengir, Bartel Runeaxe, Boris Devilboon, Cho-Manno, Revolutionary, Arcades Sabboth, Atogatog, Chromium, Circu, Dimir Lobotomist, Cloudhoof Kirin, Commander Greven il-Vec, Crovax the Cursed, Dakkon Blackblade, Daughter of Autumn, Gabriel Angelfire, Gallowbraid, Gosta Dirk, Grandmother Sengir, Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Halfdane, Hazduhr the Abbot, Hivis of the Scale, Huang Zhong, Shu General, Hunding Gjornersen, Ihsan's Shade, Irini Sengir, Ishi-Ishi, Akki Crackshot, Iwamori of the Open Fist, Jacques le Vert, Kei Takahashi, Kentaro, the Smiling Cat, Lady Caleria, Liu Bei, Lord of Shu, Livonya Silone, Lord Magnus, Ma Chao, Western Warrior, Marhault Elsdragon, Morinfen, Myojin of Cleansing Fire, Myojin of Life's Web, Orim, Samite Healer, Palladia-Mors, Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix", Pavel Maliki, Princess Lucrezia, Purraj of Urborg, Rashida Scalebane, Rashka the Slayer, Reveka, Wizard Savant, Riven Turnbull, Rohgahh of Kher Keep, Shimatsu the Bloodcloaked, Sima Yi, Wei Field Marshal, Soraya the Falconer, Spirit of the Night, Stangg, Taniwha, Tarox Bladewing, Telim'Tor, Tuknir Deathlock, Tuktuk the Explorer, Ur-Drago, Vaevictis Asmadi, Veldrane of Sengir, Xun Yu, Wei Advisor, Yukora, the Prisoner, Zhang Liao, Hero of Hefei, Zhao Zilong, Tiger General, Zhou Yu, Chief Commander, Zuberi, Golden Feather.
(I left out Ramirez DePietro because I just didn't have the heart to be the one to demote him. I mean, come on, he's a pirate. Pirates should get their own tier...)
Moved from T4 to T5: (Rationale: mediocre voltron stats w/ limited defensive or evasion abilities, effects that don't have a strong effect on the game.)
Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Adamaro, First to Desire, Alexi, Zephyr Mage, Atalya, Samite Master, Autumn Willow, Ayumi, the Last Visitor, Balthor the Stout, Bounteous Kirin, Cabal Patriarch, Cao Ren, Wei Commander, Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip, Commander Eesha, Daghatar the Adamant, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, Dong Zhou, the Tyrant, Eron the Relentless, Fumiko the Lowblood, Geist of Saint Traft, Gerrard Capashen, Ghost Council of Orzhova, He Who Hungers, Heidar, Rimewind Master, Higure, the Still Wind, Iizuka the Ruthless, Iname as One, Iname, Life Aspect, Isao, Enlightened Bushi, Infernal Kirin, Jareth, Leonine Titan, Jedit Ojanen of Efrava, Jiwari, the Earth Aflame, Kamahl, Pit Fighter, Karona, False God, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Kaysa, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Kiyomaro, First to Stand, Kiku, Night's Flower, Kodama of the North Tree, Kumano, Master Yamabushi, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Kuon, Ogre Ascendant, Lady Evangela, Lady Sun, Latulla, Keldon Overseer, Linessa, Zephyr Mage, Llawan, Cephalid Empress, Lovisa Coldeyes, Masako the Humorless, Masumaro, First to Live, Munda, Ambush Leader, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Oyobi, Who Split the Heavens, Oriss, Samite Guardian, Pianna, Nomad Captain, Pharika, God of Affliction, Polukranos, World Eater, Radiant, Archangel, Ragnar, Rakdos the Defiler, Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Rorix Bladewing, Ruhan of the Fomori, Sensei Golden-Tail, Shauku, Endbringer, Shisato, Whispering Hunter, Silvos, Rogue Elemental, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Sosuke, Son of Seshiro, Squee, Goblin Nabob, Starke of Rath, Sun Ce, Young Conquerer, Sunastian Falconer, Tahngarth, Talruum Hero, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Takeno, Samurai General, Thriss, Nantuko Primus, Tymaret, the Murder King, Vhati il-Dal, Vorosh, the Hunter, Zhang Fei, Fierce Warrior, Zurgo Bellstriker.
Moved from T4 to T6: (Rationale: a combination of the last two. These guys really didn't belong in T4 in the first place.)
Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior, Hakim, Loreweaver, Hikari, Twilight Guardian, Kodama of the Center Tree, Kuro, Pitlord, Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon", Maga, Traitor to Mortals, Mannichi, the Fevered Dream, Meng Huo, Barbarian King, Nagao, Bound by Honor, Obzedat, Ghost Council, Patron of the Nezumi, Patron of the Kitsune, Tivadar of Thorn, Zhang He, Wei General, Zuo Ci, the Mocking Sage.
Moved from T3 to T4: (Rationale: Just basing this off of my experience with the commanders and the synergies available to them. Trying to split into Good Tier and Average Tier. Priorities for Good Tier: commanders that have built in methods of dodging removal and disruption (e.g. Thrun, the Last Troll), and commanders who's strategies quick swing the board out of proportion if left unchecked (e.g. Rakdos, Lord of Riots).)
Adun Oakenshield, Akroma, Angel of Fury, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit, Angus Mackenzie, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Athreos, God of Passage, Balthor the Defiled, Baru, Fist of Krosa, Borborygmos Enraged, Bosh, Iron Golem, Crovax, Ascendant Hero, Dragonlord Atarka, Dragonlord Dromoka, Dragonlord Silumgar, Dralnu, Lich Lord, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Erebos, God of the Dead, Ertai, Wizard Adept, Feldon of the Third Path, Gahiji, Honored One, Garza Zol, Plague Queen, Godo, Bandit Warlord, Heliod, God of the Sun, Homura, Human Ascendant, Iname, Death Aspect, Isperia, Supreme Judge, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip, Jenara, Asura of War, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Jolrael, Empress of Beasts, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Kaervek the Merciless, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, Kaseto, Orochi Archmage, Keranos, God of Storms, Kodama of the South Tree, Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Kresh the Bloodbraided, Lavinia of the Tenth, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero, Mangara of Corondor, Marrow-Gnawer, Mayael the Anima, Mirri the Cursed, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer, Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Nin, the Pain Artist, Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius, Norin the Wary, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Olivia Voldaren, Patron of the Akki, Patron of the Orochi, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Radha, Heir to Keld, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Sapling of Colfenor, Skullbriar, the Walking Grave, Surrak Dragonclaw, Surrak, the Hunt Caller, Sygg, River Cutthroat, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thraximundar, Thromok the Insatiable, Toshiro Umezawa, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Ulasht, the Hate Seed, Urabrask the Hidden, Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Vendilion Clique, Venser, Shaper Savant, Visara the Dreadful, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Xira Arien, Yasova Dragonclaw, Yeva, Nature's Herald, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Zada, Hedron Grinder, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Zurgo Helmsmasher.
Sorry for the lack of spoilers. They don't seem to work on my browser, and I don't want to just type in code and hope for the best.

Remember you want to actually cast your dudes so you get your Bounteous Kirin trigger. Also, nice deck.
