Goblin_Guide on Morph-Kido

Ok so one more aikido thing: don't add straight up pillowforts, but maybe consider some cards that are onboard and will punish people for going your way, like No Mercy. Might be nice.

Now, for cuts:

Azusa: I’m not sure why you added this? She’s good ramp but you’re not really a lands deck so she might not be as useful as often as you want, especially with only 31 lands.

Broodhatch: useful card and can have some funny game states set up, but against anything with trample it’s bad, and it just isn’t a great card.

Chromeshell: don’t actually cut this, I just want to talk about it. It actually says you can exchange control of target creature you don’t control and target creature you control. This means it doesn’t always have to be the creature you give. Just to clarify.

Great Oak: seems kind of weird in this deck? I’m not sure why it’s here.

Ixidor: it is an anthem, but the second ability seems virtually worthless to me; if you had more stuff like Heartstone or Training Grounds or Biomancer's Familiar I would be ok with it, but otherwise I don’t really see it being useful. Just think about it replacing all morph costs with .

Spellsnatcher: very good effect, but that morph cost is reaaally up there. The more ways you add to the deck to turn things up for free, the better this will get, but until then I don’t think it’s enough.

Entrancer: similar to broodhatch, I think this card has a really high ceiling and a really low floor. Depending on how varied of a gameplay experience you have this might not be best.

Sakura-Tribe: I’ve played against the deck, and you don’t need the ramp.

Conscription, Hex, Amalgam, etc: Just keep these really high CMC cards in mind, they might need to be cut at some point.

Salvage: there are better recursion spells; I might just replace this with Eternal Witness if you want to go one-for-one.

Ethereal Ambush: this seems less than ideal, I think it should be cut for something of a lower CMC (ideally a morph).

Let me know if this isn’t enough cards, I can think harder.

How about Eternal Witness?

Heroic Intervention - Protection

Beast Within - Removal

Bonders' Enclave - Draw

Dread Statuary - Manland to be used as a fuel for a mass draw spell or blocker in a pinch

Turntimber, Serpentine Wood - Creature when you need it, land when you don't

The Great Henge - Draw, lifegain, ramp

Three Visits > Rampant growth

Green Sun's Zenith - Tutor

Harmonize - Not needed but nice to have, Xenagos decks struggle with card draw and this helps mitigate that weakness.

Eternal Witness - Recursion

Farhaven Elf/Wood Elves - Ramp T4 Xenagos

Kogla, the Titan Ape - Removal, utility with E-Wit and others

Shaman of Forgotten Ways - Ramp + Potential wincon

Elder Gargaroth - Really good, fav 5 drop beater in Xenagos hands down

Another thing. You need Self-mill. like A LOT of Self-mill. otherwise Karador isn't going to be able to recur anything. You already have underrealm lich, so similar cards like Deadbridge Chant are really going to give you more creatures to resurrect. If you accidentally mill a really good non-creature spell, Eternal Witness or Regrowth are good cards

Also Guardian Zendikon has no business being in this deck. if it were a toughness-matters deck it would work, but Karador does better with graveyard strategies. Hope this helps.

It's very easy to repeatedly replay cards from the yard in the meta as it stands and yard hate is important for a reason.

It's extremely common to see cards like Underworld Breach, Noxious Revival, Regrowth, Eternal Witness, Sevinne's Reclamation, Mystic Sanctuary, etc in the meta right now. There will be no shortage of options for an Agent player to steal to reuse Scheming Symmetry if this is even required. In most situations just stealing any 2 card combo that's present in multiple decks (Consult Oracle being a huge culprit here at this present time) by taking one half from one player and one half from another player is good enough to win without considering extra Symmetry casts to acquire multiple combo pieces from one opponent's deck, 3 card combos, or looped Symmetry casts to exile all cards from all opponent's decks.

Seems like a cEDH list...

Why no Isochron Scepter+Dramatic Reversal combo? You have the rocks and dorks to support it.

And if you're playing Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, why not play Basalt Monolith?

With these additions you already run the tutors to seek them out, and then you can add in Walking Ballista as an alternate wincon.

And if you are running Neoform and Pemmin's Aura/Freed from the Real, why not run Incubation Druid as well as another infinite mana outlet to go with Bloom Tender and/or Faeburrow Elder.

Another good tutor is to run Intuition...and you go get the 1 card you really want, Noxious Revival and Eternal Witness (or Regrowth if you want to play it) and it guarantees you get your card you want to tutor for.

Also, I feel like adding Runic Armasaur could be good to go with your Verity Circle draw effects. Where Verity Circle doesn't do well is against Thrasios activations, but that is where the Armasaur shines.

And if you feel that Thassa's Oracle is a "dead" card, you could make it NOT a "dead" card by using Thought Lash or Paradigm Shift to make a 2 card combo with THORACLE.

Other tutor effects to consider:

Long-Term Plans = You already play most of the cards to support it: Sensei's Divining Top, Sylvan Library, Mirri's Guile...

Drift of Phantasms = Tutors for Pemmin's Aura, Freed from the Real, Faeburrow Elder

Idyllic Tutor = Search for your card draw specific enchantments to gain advantage or your Pemmin's Aura or Freed from the Real.

I noticed that Stony Silence effects shut you down quite easily, so aside from removing the stax piece stopping you, think about adding in a secondary win condition such as the previous mentioned options above to add into more consistency against bad match ups.

I love it, and given your use of wheels, I like the idea of a backup to the commander in a wheel line, you have Notion Thief in the board, but with Hullbreacher being shown newly, and with your ability to run more wheels like Timetwister alongside the other 4 you can run, I'd really like to see what you can do!

I think some of the effects here are a little more win-more, with Archaeomancer, Scholar of the Ages, etc. I love the combo, but the cards just aren't great without more actual instants/sorceries. I love the discard and Tutor, and some if the damage etbs, but some of the more expensive ones feel a little worse. I think there are tons of options here that I loved seeing you explore! I might try my own variant soon, or will consider running this card in decks that just tun good etbs!

This could be amazing in just random decks like Eternal Witness, Spellseeker, Recruiter of the Guard, Reclamation Sage, Knight of Autumn piles! Muldrotha lists everywhere rejoice!

Nice deck!!

You can add Unearth which goes infinite with Eternal Witness and Phyrexian Altar. Once you get infinite death//ETB triggers you can use Pitiless Plunderer to get infinite mana. Unearth also is just a decent card, it reanimates 22 out of the 29 creatures in your deck and can cycle for two colorless mana.
