Want something off-beat? How about Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer ?
Wanna really have a game where you're spinning the wheel? Atla Palani, Nest Tender . Like a token Cascade!
Wanna be the unconventional token strat that goes tall instead of wide? Take a look at Feldon of the Third Path !
Krenko, Mob Boss can get out of hand, I'm sure.
You could sac your way to the win or just go wide with Prossh, Skyraider of Kher !
Need something totally typical? Might I suggest Rhys the Redeemed ?
How about Rith, the Awakener devotion tokens. I hear White has some good stuff for that?
Teysa Karlov is sitting in the middle of the Orzhov web of power. Know what that means? Lots of tokens and a lot more death.
Need to come out of nowhere with an enormous beat stick? Ulasht, the Hate Seed is your beat stick!!
Valduk, Keeper of the Flame is another beefy boi who benefits from auras and equipments a lot... as do Tana, the Bloodsower and Siona, Captain of the Pyleas ... Here's something else entirely. Voltron tokens?
Hope that was enough options.

Well, to start off, you need like 10 more lands and some mana rocks. Mathematically, your land base is much less than 1/3rd of your deck, but your average cmc is running pretty high. Close to 4. There's a lot of cards I could suggest straight up dropping for lands, some cards I'd recommend switching for better alternatives of itself, like Windfall instead of Midnight Clock. Also, since you mentioned infinite mana, you've already got Isochron Scepter so add Dramatic Reversal too. Dramatic Reversal imprinted on Iso plus a couple mana rocks = infinite mana. Give yourself something to dump your infinite mana into, like Urza, Lord High Artificer or Comet Storm or something. If you'd like me to break down what additions and subtractions I would make to the deck, in depth, just holla. And one last thing, if you want to be making tons of copies of the Statue, then you might have a better time switching your commander to Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer it's not hard to make 10-20 tokens with that guy and then turn them all into Scuttling Doom Engine and sac them to Ashnod's Altar . That's just an example of what you can do with Brudiclad, but my point is, is it shouldn't be too difficult to create a few copies of the statue and start hating your opponents out of the game lol

Now we get to the hard part. What to cut. Let's start with what doesn't mesh with the theme of spell copying; Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Glen Elendra Archmage are both better served in a combo/control shell where you need to protect a specific series of cards, the benefit of spell copying is the flexibility and resilience to allow some things to miss because everything becomes a game ender once its been copied a couple of times; Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer and Second Harvest are designed for HEAVY token decks where you're making ALOT of small tokens in concert with a few threatening ones; Animar, Soul of Elements , Fathom Mage , Temur Ascendancy , and Warstorm Surge are all good for a creature focused strategy, but for a SPELL copy deck most of our creatures exist to accelerate our mana ( dorks , Goblin Electromancer , and STE ) or as silver bullets for specific problems ( Terastodon , Acidic Slime , and Bane of Progress ) which tend to be too small of a portion of our deck or too small stat-wise to use these effects to their fullest; Krosan Grip cannot be copied because of split second; Time Stop is so niche you're better off running Counterflux ; Melek, Izzet Paragon is just bad,I love him but he's too inconsistent and without alot of top-deck manipulation ( Sensei's Divining Top , Sylvan Library , Mirri's Guile , Scroll Rack ) you can't reliably get the spells you want to copy; Verdant Confluence is easily the weakest of the confluences in these colors and none of its effects are particularly spectacular even after one or two copies; Starstorm is a very expensive Blasphemous Act with cycling; Brainstorm is the weakest card draw spell you have and never feels good unless it's setting up a Kefnet combo.

RNR_Gaming fair enough! I've been trying to avoid EDHRec when building this deck, but since I've been struggling I thought "Meh I'll just ask this guy and maybe find a couple gems that I'm not thinking of off the top of my head"
What's your idea on Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer ? Is he pretty figured out as well, or do you got some interesting ideas? I literally just got back into MTG after quitting for 5 or 6 years so I'm not too fluent on what the meta is like, so please forgive me lol

Have you considered running Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer ?

Think you had mentioned that you already have Cascade Bluffs on the way, and Spire of Industry was a possibility we talked about, and you might want to consider Castle Vantress . I think now is about the time that you'll want to start honing in on what you want the deck to have a focus on; given the push for eldrazi and X spells, I think you could drop Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer and Thopter Engineer . I'd personally cut Reverse Engineer , Saheeli's Artistry , and Masterful Replication and start looking into more payoffs for Saheeli's +1. You may want to consider one or two of the following for casting on other people's turns to avoid as much trouble on your own turn: Shimmer Myr , Vedalken Orrery , and/or Leyline of Anticipation ; these will also play well into Unwinding Clock . I think Palladium Myr is droppable given if it doesn't have haste it's functionally a Worn Powerstone , and Pristine Talisman , Prismatic Lens , and Izzet Locket can be pretty underwhelming. Blue Sun's Zenith and Expansion / Explosion are draw spells that use Saheeli's ability as a payoff, and BSZ will shuffle back in. If you want more draw, Slate of Ancestry is good if you find yourself with a lot of creatures, Tower of Fortunes if you end up with a lot of extra mana to spend, and Loreseeker's Stone if you find yourself empty-handed most of the time.

@GeistKing I agree with multimedia. Ezuri is a bit more expensive but is a much more efficient engine for what you'd like. You're only losing out on some card draw, but you're in blue anyway so you're good on that. I'd also stray away from landfall effects and stick to one main theme (tokens), and maybe a little sub theme (+1/+1 counters) just because its a budget deck. Obviously include staple ramp and card draw spells. Budget token generation is hard for me to help with because I'm not worried about budget myself. You could add Orochi Hatchery or Snake Basket . Chasm Skulker and Reef Worm come to mind, as well. I know it's expensive but you cant really run Green tokens without at least Parallel Lives . Doubling Season would be a game changer in an Ezuri token deck but to each their own.
Also, my own Commander suggestion, if you may: if you really like the whole Biomass Mutation + hella tokens idea, then you should look into Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer . Tons of shenanigans. Almost kinda sorta a Biomass Mutation on a stick but better imo. And you get to do things like replicate your creatures with Quasiduplicate or something, then turn all your tokens into whatever you copied. My personal favorite is Scuttling Doom Engine + a sac outlet. Or just hang out and dare someone to board wipe lol. Also replicating Hellrider or Inferno Titan , then turning your tokens into either of them is great fun. For you at least, not anyone else lmao. Games are always different and diverse with Brudiclad and I bet he can be a decent budget commander. You can take a look at my Brudiclad deck if you'd like, its on my page. It's not budget in the least, but it will give you an idea of how the deck goes.
