@turnedexpery81: Thanks for the comments! Swarmyard is in the upgrade section due to its price. Nantuko Vigilante was in an original build of this but I already had Caustic Caterpillar, Caustic Wasps, Rust Scarab and Viridian Corrupter which I think are all better, so it found the cutting room floor.

i would recommend against Brimaz, King of Oreskos because it will kill the copies when it has myriad. and for that matter, all the "when ~ attacks..." triggers dont happen for the miriad copy since they enter already attacking, so i would shift to a more "when ~ does damage to a player.." effects. i really like the idea of Hydra Omnivore with myriad. that is pretty awesome.

side idea: creatures with Renown. you get the trigger when it deals damage, and you could use Valeron Wardens to draw mad cards.

otherwise, Slith Predator, Slith Ascendant, Spawnwrithe, sword of ___ (basically any of them), Wayfaring Temple, Augury Adept, Blinding Angel, Caustic Wasps, Celestial Mantle, Dawning Purist, Lightwielder Paladin, Living Hive!!!, Ohran Viper, Precinct Captain, Quietus Spike, and Relic Seeker .. to name a few. also, all the old inistrad vampires like Bloodcrazed Neonate have that interaction as well, although you arent playing red.

and with this "whenever ~ deals damage to a player.." trigger, you could use stuff like Rancor or Primal Rage

or you could use cards with Exalted like Sublime Archangel because the trigger happens on declaration of attack before the copies come in with myriad.

I'll have to agree with you on the Gleeful Sabotage. I love the Viashino Heretic and will put 4 copies in. However, I'm not as impressed by Goblin Tinkerer and Caustic Wasps so I only put 2 of each in, replacing the caterpillars. Thanks for the suggestions.

Wow, I really really like this idea!

I have some more cards you might think of, if you have not done so already:Goblin Tinkerer -> Lands have no mana costsViashino Heretic -> put some more damage inCaustic Wasps -> needs to be unblocked, but would destroy artifacts "for free"
