One really situational addition to Kogarashi's post. Let's say you had Hypersonic Dragon in play. Then you could cast Crush of Tentacles on your opponents turn for its surge cost--you would not even have to wait for the prior spell to resolve.

Question 1: Say I have Tiana, Ship's Caretaker on the battlefield, and Eidolon of Countless Battles bestowed on a creature I control, and a player casts Planar Cleansing. Does Eidolon become a creature and stay on the battlefield, or does it come back to my hand because of Tiana's delayed triggered ability?

Question 2: Say I cast an instant spell on an opponent's turn. After the instant resolves, can I cast Crush of Tentacles's surge cost? Or does the surge mechanic not allow a sorcery to change the casting "timezone"?

Thanks in advance!

cut Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep, Greater Good, Pemmin's Aura, Edge of Autumn, Gitaxian Probe, and Crush of Tentacles first off. You need to round out your curve. It's really out of wack.

You are conflicting with your ideas here and it will bite you later. You have really high CMC creatures with a lot that don't do much on cast and are more build around cards, but then you are sending everything back to the hand with a ton of board wiped, but if you have a bunch of high CMC, non-ETB value creatures how are you supposed to cast a board wipe like that effectively? Either run high cmc cards or play the boardwipes with combo not both. You also have a lot of very power, expensive cards like snapcaster and crucible, but the reason those cards are good is because of the other powerful cards that you can abuse with them, but in this case you are running cards that don't abuse them. I don't understand why you wouldn't go for more staples found on EDHREC, and cut the very expensive cards you clearly don't want to take advantage of right now.

You also have no central theme. You say landfall power-matters, but you've cut all of the landfall out, so we're left with another jumble of cards that don't always work well with each other. What about Voltron? Your goal seems to be either the possibility of an OTK with your deck, or control. If you want to go for the control route, please lower your average CMC after you fix your curve. You do not want to cast 4cmc cards to give you a slight upside. Look at the cards in EDHREC for control decks and play those cards that are staples. More counterspell, more draw, and for all things that are holy please play better ramp. You need more artifacts and your current spells are crappy sorceries. Don't go for giant high-cmc spells that payoff only after you've played 6 lands. Go for consistency and at bare-minimum success.

I do like the voltron theme better though, like a sort of wait around deck that throws down equipment in one turn, and then turns on Arix to smash for lethal.

Crush of Tentacles, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Splinter Twin, and Feldon of the Third Path all seem like auto-includes if you can get your hands on them.

Thanks everyone for the comments! Individual replies below.

Crivaro: Cloudpost would be interesting if I can find a way to copy it.

SmashPortal: Helm of the Host would be good if I had more legendary creatures to copy, but for now the mana investment is too heavy since it's 9 mana for 1 token.

MST_Negates: Reef Worm is 4 CMC so usually not a turn 2 play, and is definitely one of the best options for resilience.

BolasFucks: Phyrexian Processor certainly can make a big token, but the life cost is risky and the tokens don't trample. Angrath's Marauders and Borderland Behemoth can frequently deal more than 40 damage for each token without having to pay life. Mechanized Production is a good alternate wincon and also a way to copy an artifact, but currently most of the things in this deck worth copying are nonartifact, and it needs to last through all my opponents' turns before I can win with eight artifacts of the same name.

Ben773: The myriad cards are decent but not the most powerful things to be doing. Crush of Tentacles removes all the tokens we have already made. Precursor Golem tokens are vulnerable to spot removal on the original. Gold-Forge Garrison 4/4 is not worth it. Copying the 5/1 tokens from Rite of the Raging Storm means they all get sacrificed at end of turn. Metallurgic Summonings is already in the deck. Infinite Reflection costs a lot of mana and only affects nontoken creatures. Mirror Mockery tokens can't be copied since they only appear after Brudiclad's trigger is over. Flameshadow Conjuring is a card I quite like from my other decks and might try out in this. Inferno Titan dealing 3 additional damage per token is quite little. I'm trying to include a few more card advantage options. I do have Pact of Negation and Spell Swindle as counters. I might also include Force of Will and Swan Song as low mana cost options.
