Lol, Sekki for the memes! Thanks Deepstriker29 for the suggestions! I actually just got a Cold-Eyed Selkie and added it to the deck. For now I'm keeping Crowned Ceratok (I get that sometimes Trample is a "win more" mechanic, but at least in the games I play with my friends where we let the board get ridiculous and then all swing at each other's faces, it can certainly be the deciding factor lol). I have Ugin's Insight and probably had it in an earlier version of the deck, but I'll consider throwing it in - there are only a handful of cards I would really even consider taking out at this point so if I feel like I'm not having any issues with draw I will probably leave it out.

Also thanks Wurmspiralmaschine14, those are definitely some strong cards I will need to look into!

Cold-Eyed Selkie instead of Jhessian Thief, same mana price in a mono-blue deck. You can pump her up for great card draw.

You're right that a 1/1 Cephalid Constable would just keep bouncing lands, so he only needs to get huge for one turn. I might just play him like an infect deck would, with Distortion Strike, Vines of Vastwood and Blossoming Defense, and just hope to get a hit equal to the number of permanents they have; and it's game over from there.

Cold-Eyed Selkie might have a home in a deck like this, especially with something like Empyrial Plate (which also might be good for making a huge constable, since you can turn 3 constable, turn 4 play and equip and swing).

Good point about the piper, hadn't thought of that. If drawing equal to damage is a thing for you, maybe Cold-Eyed Selkie would be suitable, however you have nothing to boost her strength with so I guess that option is out too.

Following up to this:

Cold-Eyed Selkie, Blue Sun's Zenith and Bident of Thassa all slot well into the deck and provide reliable draw. Archaeomancer and Eternal Witness provide prudent access to the wide variety of noncreature spells you'll be using to turn Kraj on. Ugin's Insight is a card that I will admit I have a bit of bias for, but it still provides excellent filtering for itself in the overwhelming majority of situations. This deck would enjoy scrying away "win more" cards like Crowned Ceratok enough that I believe you could also make use of Lifecrafter's Bestiary and even Aqueous Form, especially if you're copying enemy abilities that want Kraj to attack.

And above all else, Sekki, Seasons' Guide, because memes.

Thusfar, defense has never really been a problem for me with this deck. By turn 5-6, I usually have the biggest creatures on the board (even if I take Eldrazi into account) and they become stronger each turn.

Cold-Eyed Selkie works great in here, because about 80% of the decks I play against use blue. Since most of them use at least some Islands, Selkie can often just waltz on through and get me some extra draw. This becomes especially funny when she gets pumped by Ezuri.

All that aside, Garruk Wildspeaker might be fun to add; I'll have a look at him soon.

True, i was thinking from a purely defensive perspective. How often do you utilize Cold-Eyed Selkie? That might be a viable swap, especially if you also add Garruk Wildspeaker. With his mana boost, you could simply drop a forest to make room.

For card draw I've found a bunch (some a little +1/+1 counter focused, I've been working with those a bunch).

Here they are: Bred for the Hunt, Cold-Eyed Selkie, Fathom Mage, Jungle Barrier, Vedalken Heretic, Wistful Selkie, Zameck Guildmage

I'm not sure if your deck is creature-y enough, but Sages of the Anima can be really good.
