Regoober on Not exactly in the eye of the storm.

I love your decklist, I love your playbook, I love this take. It's a hot take. I was about to suggest a bunch of BS about cards that would make it look more every go-infinite Najeela Warrior Ball Deck, but you can just EDHREC that. I will suggest Cryptolith Rite because its budget Druids' Repository and Earthcraft , and dorks is the key to the deck, so why not dork out hard? (Also, I don't know if your win strategy necessarily needs Najeela online, but that is the most obvious).

What I want to do is talk about abusing your untap enchants. I have a lot of experience with Intruder Alarm , but this thing with the Jeskai Ascendancy : magnificent. Didn't this idea get a little play in standard? Anyway.

Intruder Alarm first: Cheap creatures that bounce themselves like Shrieking Drake or Man-o'-War or Dream Stalker . There's Stonecloaker and Whitemane Lion in white, too. Green has Temur Sabertooth which is super nasty for saving other creatures as well as completing your loop. Great with ETB Triggers.

Jeskai Ascendancy is what I'm really excited about. I've never brewed with this card, but it's got huge potential. You have enough colors and sources to make this one really sparkle. There's buyback cards: Capsize , Elvish Fury , Fanning the Flames , Haze of Rage , Mind Games maybe, Sprout Swarm Definitely (works with Intruder Alarm, too), and many lesser ones. Another Tempest-theme comes in the form of a cycle of Aura Crown of Flames , Shimmering Wings , Whip Silk , and Flickering Ward . The last two are playable (you can make a lot of green and usually white with creatures?), but a lot of this means you have to be hitting at least one strange mana color. I would consider looking at some of the "any color" dorks or Gemstone Array Effects. (That's the best one because it's a battery, too.) ... Priest of Titania ...

I would get my draw from creatures. Beast Whisperer is my dude right now. There's elves and wizards that etb trigger with draw (which would be good to bounce and storm off with, too) and would synergize with tribal cards you are running if they're just lame ducks after being played.

If you want your jank to really clank, consider some more tutors, too. I'm thinking cheaper Enlightened Tutor , Mystical Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Gamble ... I guess that's not too cheap, but way cheaper Vampiric Tutor or Grim Tutor . The reveal might be too much information in your play group, though, so I could see leaving them out.

Also, While researching for this deck, I came across Sunscape Master and Banishing Knack Who I think have been hoping for this deck forever.

All that, I just love this mashup. do whatever. I can't wait to see how you evolve this.

What would most of these help with Especially Mirror of Fate ? Perhaps I’m missing something so if so please let me know.

I am playing ad nauseam as such mana curve needs to be low as possible so Bone Miser is a bit too much mana for what it does

I considered Elvish Spirit Guide and I might end up adding it in. It will require testing.

Gemstone Array just isn’t worth the cost. It’s a win more card. Typically I want to spend my mana in other ways than that. It’s only useful once I have infinite mana and at that point I have my deck in hand and the ability to produce infinite colored mana through my rocks.

Wow very interesting deck!! Crib Swap could be cool here since it is an Ally (Munda sees it), is decent removal, and triggers Mana Echoes. Other cards you might consider are Universal Automaton , Gemstone Array , Bag of Holding , Changeling Berserker , Changeling Hero , and Fiend Hunter (while not an ally, Fiend hunter enables a loop with Changeling Berserker and Changeling hero that would give you an arbitrarily high number of ally entry triggers. You can end the loop any time by exiling a different creature.)

Druids' Repository offers a second mana source and an alternate plan- by significantly cutting land count ala charbelcher, you can run a bunch of 'search for a land' cards to make comboing very reliable, while also offering some early acceleration with Evolution Sage

Gemstone Array and Etched Oracle both offer other pieces, but actually getting them to work is a different matter. I've seen Golem Foundry used in a list.
