Artifact Creature — Myr
Darksteel Myr is indestructible. (Lethal damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it. If its toughness is 0 or less, it's still put into its owner's graveyard.)

griffstick, I'm not sure. The main idea of the list are "Cards that protect you from combat damage", but I've been focusing more on protecting from big swarms of creatures.
That said, I think I might refine the list such that cards that only prevent damage from one creature being good too, like Darksteel Myr, Maze of Ith, Glissa, the Traitor, etc. In your opinion, are cards like that good enough to be worth recommending to fill the role of pillow fort?

I think the deck could definitely use some ramp or defensive-jank to build up until you can cast Razaketh. You might consider Darksteel Myr or Manor Gargoyle for blockage-effects. The deck could also benefit from either some recursion or token generation - Razaketh is a hungry boy, and you'll want to make sure you're not forced into sacrificing your other demons to get his effects. Golden guardian is good for this, but 4 mana every time feels pricey. Maybe Rite of Belzenlok ?

Ok, i have a couple issues with this deck:
1: Its a Stuffy Doll deck. How can you NOT have Pariah. Just, how? It's practically a crime. Also Pariah's Shield. Just put in a couple more indestructible like Darksteel Myr any you'll be completely free from damage.
2: Dead cards. Without guardian combo, all Altar of the Brood actually does is fill up the moldrotha player's graveyard a bit and make your Immortal Coil and Lich's Mastery worse. Maybe consider a different payoff, such as Genesis Chamber or Soul Warden, as they are not dead draws without the guardian, as you're getting lots of ETBs of nontoken creatures from all your flickering. Also, Leveler and Timesifter. Why? You don't have tremendously many high CMC spells, and leveler is an ETB: you can't gift the lack of library to someone.
3: You have very little synergy with her uptick. There is only a couple miracle spells and only 2 fetches. Consider putting in some of the panoramas (card link example: Jund Panorama. Remember that they can be put in Esper decks cos no colour identity) or if your fine with spending a couple bucks, some fetch lands, Myriad Landscape, or anything of that kidney
5: Eerie Interlude + commander ultimate = profit. Also Flickerwisp, Long Road Home, etc. And Eldrazi Displacer. You have a bunch of colourless lands, and if you throw in a couple mana rocks (which u should probably do btw. You only have swol ring :P ) and you'll have all the colourless mana you need.

If you're looking for an easy creature to keep Sunforger on without risking the creature being taken out (So you can keep slinging spells) may I suggest Darksteel Myr, as he is indestructible? Not the best protection, with with Modern typically running more direct kill spells rather than exile / return spells, I think he'd be one of your best bets.

Darksteel Myr so that you can do as much damage as you want and it won't die

i also found Hazoret the Fervent has been very useful and should be considered over Darksteel Myr 1 more mana but is castable usually with this deck and having 1 or fewer in hand usually isnt an issue. I have won a few games with Hazoret just swinging. Its not budget but i assume it will become budget once rotation happens.

I would definitely work on swapping in more keyword creatures like Ykrivan said. You're not really using the full value of your commander. don't forget about colorless creatures, Darksteel Myr is a great add. I know you said it's humans, but you are not currently getting any huge boons from that tribal aspect.
I would also look at getting some of the white staple spot removal like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile.
I would drop Manalith for a Caged Sun, and I would look for a Pearl Medallion.
Swiftfoot Boots would be a great way to protect your commander, and give your guys haste each combat.
Good luck, EDH is the best format! I hope you enjoy it!
