Displacers are still here. Would like to see some Eternal Witness. Not sure what Sarkhan Vol is supposed to do for you here. Akroma is a bit too cute.

I'd even go as far as to say drop All Precinct Captain's for 4 Noble Hierarch's and drop 2 Thraben Inspector's and 1 Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip for 3 Eternal Witness to get back company. -3 Brave the Elements -1 Mana Tithe +4 Collected Company I know you have a vision here, But this keeps you with your tribe and will guaranteed make the deck better.

rothgar13 thank you for the response.

Yes i do agree that the Ghostway and Eerie Interlude + Eternal Witness combo is really a gold. However it is very slow as you have to wait until end of turn to get the creatures and its effect. If you have a mass cloudshift though i would appreciate it.

Cloudshift on the other hand gets your creatures faster and its effects and 1 mana to boot.

Moreover, the thing about the Flickerwisp and Pia and Kiran Nalaar is stretching the mana base as they require 2 of the colours. However when you observe my mana requirments everyone sans Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, which will be likely tutored by tapping tokens and such, has a 1 colour mana requirement making it easier to summon than any of the mention above.

I urge you to try playtesting my deck and you can see how easy it is to summon the creatures. Thank you. =)

Cool deck :). Enchantments is super fun to playHere are some recommendations (maybe you want to include higher costing cards at some point)Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Temur Sabertooth -> can save the enchantresses and give you triggers for cathar's crusade, Solitary Confinement and Eternal Witness

I think the whole angle is asking a bit too much of your manabase. The deck this is most similar to (Kiki Chord) has enough trouble balancing , , and . The Akroma trick is also more cute than it is effective. I would cut the Akroma and the Eldrazi, clean up the manabase, and play flicker enablers like Flickerwisp, as well as payoff cards like Blade Splicer, Eternal Witness, and Pia and Kiran Nalaar (Thragtusk is also an option if you want to go a bit bigger). Also, Cloudshift should really be Eerie Interlude or Ghostway (note the synergy between either card and E-Wit).

The problem with Gelatinous Genesis is that there's no real good reason to run it in place of either eldrazi, or the cards that search for it (Primeval Titan or Crop Rotation into Eye of Ugin).

You could have some fun with Living Wish, here are some cards I have thought about or played in the past:

Strip Mine

Acidic Slime

Melira, Sylvok Outcast

Scavenging Ooze

Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary

Homeward Path

Eternal Witness

Glacial Chasm

Silent Arbiter

You can also explore more options by splashing white. While I generally don't think that's a good idea practically speaking, you do get some options you wouldn't have in Mono G like Ethersworn Canonist, Gaddock Teeg, Magus of the Moat, Selfless Spirit, etc.

Happy i could help :)
Kitchen Finks is a great card and the perfect creature for your needs. Eternal Witness is just as fitting, but limiting yourself to 1-2 copies seems right, since drawing too many of them can be become awkward with nothing meaningful to return. It's just a 2/1, so its ability really has to deliver. Unfortunately, Eldritch Evolution exiles itself upon resolution. (However, there are matchups where it's quite powerful to have Eternal Witnesses returning eachother in a loop whenever one of them dies. But those matchups are too infrequent to justify more than 2 copies in my opinion.)
As for other 3-drop creatures to sacrifice, i am not really sure what the best options are for your colors. Troll Ascetic is a good card for sure, but usually you don't really want to sacrifice it. Wolfir Avenger and Yasova Dragonclaw i'm not a big fan of, both require quite a bit of mana, otherwise they aren't all that great. Carven Caryatid is good if you sacrifice it or not, but such a defensive creature unfortunately doesn't fit well into your strategy. Tuktuk the Explorer can be insane if you can make him die, otherwise it's a 3 mana Raging Goblin. Goblin Ruinblaster seems really good, but it usually requires 4 mana. Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Borderland Ranger or Filigree Familiar might be okay, with the Familiar being the best of the three in my opinion.
As for 5-drops, i like the dragons and Thragtusk a lot, Blitz Hellion i don't have any experience with so i can't judge it, but Urabrask the Hidden isn't quite on the same level as the others i believe. An interactive card like Acidic Slime might be better, since that solves problems the other cards can't handle (like Ensnaring Bridge or Oblivion Stone). A total of 8 five mana creatures seems okay, but i would rather go down than up in number.
Maybe you could fit a Kessig Wolf Run into your mana base, it's quite a nice mana sink. 22-23 lands total seems right though.
I think i would sideboard Forked Bolt to beat aggressive decks, Ancient Grudge against Affinity etc, Magus of the Moon to punish greedy mana bases, and Burning-Tree Shaman to shut down some combo decks.
1-2 Reclamation Sage and the Thragtusk can definitely stay in the sideboard, and Loaming Shaman and Guttural Response can be good tools as well, the other cards i don't think you really need.

Academy Rector + Sidisi, Undead Vizier = GG if you have Omniscience and Enter the Infinite in your deck. I personally don't use enter the infinite. I like to be extra af, but it also let's me use the card slot for better synergy while still enabilng instawin. Alternatively, there are many more ways to win immediately off of this combo. Academy Rector + Diabolic Intent = free omniscience, tutor for wincon.Defense of the Heart / Tooth and Nail / Spelltwine I don't use these three either but they enable it too.

What I do use is a deck full of black tutors including Demonic Collusion. I also run Regrowth and Eternal Witness. Cryptic Command already seemed like an auto include. Return Eternal Witness to hand and draw. Play Eternal Witness, get Cryptic Command back. Play Cryptic Command..... over and over until you have like 9 or 10 cards. Finally, instead of using Eternal Witness to get Cryptic Command, use it to get Demonic Collusion back. Eternal Witness Paradoxical Outcome + Omniscience = infinite etb/ltb, planeswalker activations, draw, storm. The rest is up to your imagination.
