Epochrasite

Artifact Creature — Construct

Epochrasite enters the battlefield with three +1/+1 counters on it if you didn't cast it from your hand.

When Epochrasite dies, exile it with three time counters on it and it gains suspend. (At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast this card without paying its mana cost. It has haste.)

Eiti3 on Lantern Control in Commander?

Not too few, but the 4 costing artifact creatures would need to be cast after Arcum for maximum efficiency. I'd think you need as low costing artifact creatures as possible, but not to a detriment. Liquimetal Coating might be able to help with the non-artifact creatures, but even that can be slow.

Without knowledge on what to cut, I could recommend Epochrasite, Etherium Sculptor, Hope of Ghirapur, and-or Myr Moonvessel.

DHWorlds on Blink me once, shame on me

i really really Love Epochrasite. chump blocker in the early game without blink (that turns into a 4/4 eventually), and a easy 4/4 with a blink, for 2 colorless mana. it would seem like card disadvantage, but Mulldrifter+blink easily refills your hand. try it!!!

Some more cards I think you can cut:

Wizard Replica, Narnam Cobra, Epochrasite, It That Betrays, Platinum Angel, Runed Servitor, Efficient Construction, Etched Champion

None of these cards feel like they do enough in the deck to warrant a spot.

As for lands, If you can get tham, the filters could also be a good way of fixing your red mana (Fire-Lit Thicket / Cascade Bluffs).

Lilbrudder: you're thinking of Tarnished Citadel.

Mr_crazydude on Epochrasite + Blade of selves ...

What happens or is there any interaction at all between Equipping Blade of Selves on an Epochrasite?

I'm pretty sure the myriad copies would be 4/4 (1/1 plus 3 +1/+1 counters) seeing as they were not cast from the hand. But lets say my opponent blocks 1 myriad copy with a 5/5 (or higher) creature. Seeing as the token will die do you still suspend it? Does it simply disappear at the end of combat? What exactly happens to it? Do you keep the epochrasite copies?

pet_snake: I merely summoned people I already knew to be good deckbuilders - thank you for joining the party of your own volition. Your insights into this deck are brilliant: mind if I tag you next time that I'm brewing a deck? :)

Now, on to my actual responses to your comment!

You mentioned Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Hangarback Walker, Ogre Slumlord, Overseer of the Damned, Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls as potential cuts.

Based on the limited testing I've done so far, I like how Hangarback Walker and Bloodline Keeper  Flip work in the deck. For the former, a T2 Walker for X=1 followed by T3 Yahenni is a strong start (giving me a guaranteed two indestructible triggers, and allowing me to slowly amass an army "inside" the Walker). Same with the T3 Yahenni, T4 Keeper pairing (Keeper also gives me flying blockers, which can be a big deal). The back side of Keeper is pretty handy, too, since it spits out flying 4/4s every turn and boosts Yahenni herself.

I think you may be right about several of the others. I'm still on the fence about Pawn of Ulamog, but the others are strong cuts. Thanks for pointing those out!

I really like Harvester of Souls in general. He turns my many board wipes asymmetrical - we both have no field, but I end up with significantly more cards in hand (in addition to my commander who sticks around). I haven't drawn Blood Artist in my testing yet, so let me get back to you on his inclusion.

Mimic Vat is an amazing idea and I'm embarrassed that I neglected to include it. I generally find Epochrasite to be a bit too slow - it sticks around, sure, but only comes back every 3 turns. Nether Traitor is a good idea, but I'd play Bloodghast before I'd include Traitor. And I honestly just don't like Demon of Dark Schemes (aka Slim Shady) much - I find energy to be parasitic, and having Massacre Wurm in here is usually better.

Bane of the Living is pretty great, and I can sac it to make Yahenni indestructible after I unmorph it. That has to go in here...

Tombstone Stairwell is something of a pet card. I acknowledge that occasionally it will kill me, but each of those tokens dies at EOT and they're generated every turn for every player. If I cast it in the late game, Yahenni will grow so large that it isn't even funny. Maybe I should include Disciple of Bolas to "recycle" a large Yahenni...

I am also thinking about cutting Hellfire, but more because of the $20 price tag and because I need the slots. I think for now it'll stick, though, because one-sided board wipes are hard to come by. And if the board is empty, I'll be able to swing for enough damage to make up for my life loss. I don't play in extremely token heavy metas currently, so I don't expect to kill myself off of it.

Rogue's Passage is very neat, and 100% immediately deserves a slot. I'm again miffed that I forgot to include it myself, lol. I'm iffy on Mirrorpool, though, since I can't generate colorless mana reliably enough.

Thank you, very very VERY much, for your comment. Mind if I tag you in the future to get your thoughts on other decks? :)

Tuskguard Captain: It gives trample plus it can give itself counters.

Vorel of the Hull Clade: Doubles counters. 'nough said.

Gilder Bairn: Also doubles counters and isn't legendary, but you have to untap it to use its ability. there are many ways around this, but still the biggest drawback.

Servant of the Scale: One drop that gives out counters when it dies.

Slitherhead: Scavenge for zero.

Avatar of the Resolute: It's a cheaper Cytoplast Root-Kin.

Thrummingbird: Proliferate at 2 with evasion.

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar: Use the -2 like it's going out of style.

Bioshift: If someone casts a kill spell, this will save all of those precious counters.

Strength of the Tajuru: It's Comet Storm in green that's all about those counters.

Scavenging Ooze: Eats graveyards.

Scute Mob: The beetles grow ridiculously fast for only one mana.

Fungal Behemoth: It's funnier Avatar of the Resolute.

Fertilid: Counters or you can pull out the rest of your basic lands, reducing the size of your library and making it easier to pull up spells.

Spincrusher: A reasonable substitute for Elusive Krasis.

Contagion Clasp: Proliferate plus a -1/-1 counter for something you dislike.

Epochrasite: Two drop that keeps coming back with counters.

The search I did to find these cards is here.
