Hey BransBranflakes,

You can consider adding cards in like Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal for ya to be able use your advisors more than a couple times. Same as well with Intruder Alarm as well as you can do some janky stuff with it haha. Paradox Engine can help quite a bit too, and if you up your count on artifact rocks all of these can proceed as an alternate win condition for you. Felidar Guardian can also be quite a funny route if used in a blink route with Thousand-Year Elixir so you can have a haste effect for your advisors. Pairing Conjurer's Closet , Eldrazi Displacer , or Deadeye Navigator can lead to some stupid plays with Intruder Alarm as well!

Hope that helps give some insight!

You can also use cards like Cloud of Faeries , Rhystic Study , Cavern Harpy , Dire Undercurrents , Venser, Shaper Savant , Baleful Strix , Aminatou, the Fateshifter , Felidar Guardian for some good stuff. Other than that I do see as your curve is a bit high.

Saheeli is part of an infinite combo with Felidar Guardian , it blinks saheeli herself to keep doing the minus ability over and over. I think the deck uses Serum Visions and Opt . iunno

Anyways, Act of Treason could help lower that Volition Reins ... not to mention splashing black for Viscera Seer to sac their dudes

Lightning Bolt is a 3-of on average with pros

The_Sorcerer: even with Sanguine Bond it still feels really underwhelming. It just adds pieces which in turn adds complexity and chews up card slots which could be devoted to ramp, draw, etc instead.

Not to mention the cards don't really do much outside of the combo. At least with Vela you could add a Karmic Guide who is good with your commander but also forms a loop with a sac outlet and Felidar Guardian . Plus sac outlets will be much more functional in the deck given the flickering theme.

Of all those loops, the most valuable ones are infinite life loss, infinite card draw and infinite mill. The least valuable is infinite life gain (which is not worth running). If you're going to assemble an infinite loop, you should either be able to end the game then and there or end it next turn in the case of infinite tokens, which is generally better than infinite +1/+1 counters as it's harder to stop. And you will want to follow infinite creatures up with a Cyclonic Rift and forcing each player to discard their hand or something so they can't wrath to stop you.

It's also worth looking at some combos that don't use Felidar Guardian , there is a loop with Tezzeret the Seeker that SynergyBuild has put together. This way, your entire win condition is not hinging on one card which can be removed.

I could argue a drop for Valorous Stance , it does a lot for its mana cost, but just doesn't have the extreme effect that Nahiri can bring to a table, where in nearly every board state it does work. Someone has a nice Nevinyrral's Disk they dropped just now? Gone. A big fancy The Chain Veil is tapping every turn to give a guy with Freyalise as their commander a ton of value? Hah! Laughable. Enchantments like Rhystic Study clogging your playgroup... nope.

No threats that can be exiled? No worries. Build up loyalty and craft a better hand before winning by cheating a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out with your Restoration Angel already on the field!

Also, while looking through the list, Felidar Guardian could also be a good card to slot in. It doesn't protect like Restoration Angel , but it has 1 power, so you can fetch it with Imperial Recruiter , then flicker the recruiter with it to fetch Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , making a recruiter the whole combo in one card! It does cost like 12 mana to do it all in one turn, but is able to be done turn 3, 4 and 5 one after another with just land drops for a turn 5 win with a single card. Pretty cool, right?

With Felidar Guardian you can make infinite guardians with your Saheeli Rai’s -2 giving you as many etb triggers as you could possibly want. Add in an Ashnod's Altar and you have infinite mana to abuse Breya’s abilities.

Mhm that's correct, hence why I run a lot of cards like Phyrexian Tower, High Market, Culling the Weak (I been winning a lot of games with this, since I added it in and easily became part of my core build for any reanimator decks), and Cabal Therapy.

If I went with the Reyhan pod line, I would have to use Academy Rector, sac it to grab Pattern of Rebirth than sac it once more time with an additional creature on the board due to Pattern needing to target a creature, than I would have to sac it one more time which isn't efficient. Also if I were to change the deck to a different line to include Felidar Guardian I would be running a different package. It doesn't seem too great with my current meta as there is plenty of interaction, removal, and grave hate.

Thank you very much, I appreciate the compliment! This deck was built over four years ago and went through sooo many changes and testing to the current form it has today. Only recently this past year and a half I made the changes to go into cEDH and never regret anything! ^^
