As per some Reddit cross post suggestions, I have removed Fascination and Guardian Idol in favor of Cryptic Gateway and Epiphany at the Drownyard, Adding a little more utility as well as spreading the CMC out a little more. Thanks for the input so far!

MahBoi100 thank you! I completely didn't see this and it is definitely going in the deck. There are a few other cards I plan on adding, Herald's Horn, Phyrexian Arena, Oversold Cemetery and Cover of Darkness. Also Cryptic Gateway.

I'll definitely be checking your list out as well

I gotta recommend Cryptic Gateway . Such a great card. Tap 2 tokens (or regular creatures for that matter) out an Eldrazi into play! Super fun card

Cool deck bro. Definitely a +1 from me!

I'd recommend a super fun card called Cryptic Gateway . Tap dragons to cheat out more dragons! And you can also do it at instant speed at the end of someone else's turn. Dragons don't even need haste to tap them since it's an activated ability.

Another SUPER FUN card I forgot to mention is Cryptic Gateway . It combos really well with Intruder Alarm .

Tap 2 zombies, put one into play, untap all of them and do it again!

Pair this combo with Kindred Discovery and you'll be drawing and casting zombies like crazy!

Pair these with your commanders Scry/Drain ability and you'll be able to make a really big impact on the board.

These suggestions are more for fun and an interesting idea. The previous comment is much more important.

Great build bro. Definitely a +1 from me!

I've seen an awesome version of this deck where the guy ran simply a bunch of the 1 and 2 drop vampires as well as several anthems to pump them up for the win. Have you considered this strategy? It's much faster and aggressive. This one looks very fun though.

I love having Kindred Charge as a win con in this deck. Super fun!

The only thing I'd recommend for you is way more card draw and ramp. You got some great options with black for draw and artifacts for ramp. I'd leave out Black Market and put in Gilded Lotus simply because the Lotus does something right now and give back to you the same turn it hits and requires no set up at all (lots of creatures and a sac outlet for the Market).

I'd also recommend Cryptic Gateway . This is a super fun card!

I hope this helps!
