, Sacrifice Generator Servant: Gain . If that mana is spent on a creature spell, it gains haste until end of turn. (That creature can attack and as soon as it comes under your control.)

Generator Servant Discussion

tacolover25: TBH, I actually did consider using goblins, but... I already have a deck that does that (Nilbog County Postnatal Abortion Clinic) and I like to experiment with new things. I'm actually trying to use Rite of Flame (which I still need to buy some), and Seething Song (which I need to buy more of). And the Vessel is placeholding for them both.
I do like goblins though, so if Generator Servant doesn't work out, then I now have a Plan B. Thanks for your help!

@Profet93: Thanks for checking out my deck and for your feedback!
Deflecting Swat is definitely a good card and could find a spot in here. I will have to see what I can remove.
I think I am fine on the card draw front. I have a couple different ways to filter through my deck and though I do often deplete my hand very early by playing rocks Zirilan can grab Dragon Mage or Knollspine Dragon to refill it.
Command Beacon is a maybe. I can definitely see the use and there are games where it would be helpful but losing a Mountain can hurt, especially since I have multiple cards that care about them. Same with Blast Zone. I'll put them on the Maybe Board and test them but my initial thought is that unless they replace a non-basic I already have they're not going to fit in.
Generator Servant I'll have to test. I can see the utility but I'm thinking I'd rather just have a ritual or rock unless it is in my opening hand.

Deflecting Swat - WAY too much utility and for free? Sign me up!
You're lacking some card draw there, you can't always rely on your commander. Endless Atlas, Mind's Eye, Skullclamp, even Solemn the sad robot is potentially worth an inclusion as it helps mitigate your weaknesses of lack of ramp and card draw
Command Beacon - For when your commander is too expensive
Blast Zone - Gets rid of enchantments that you can't interact with
I understand limiting your nonbasics is a priority given your 4 mana doublers, should you wish, you can remove myriad landscape, but personally, I think myriad is a great card and is not a target for LD. If they destroy your Myriad, then thats LD thats not gonna target your cavern of souls or any other relevant utility land.

So you might think if adding even more mana rocks like Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive, Worn Powerstone, Blinkmoth Urn, Everflowing Chalice, Gilded Lotus, Palladium Myr, or Iron Myr. You should be ramping as much as possible, you could even consider Extraplanar Lens if budget is no concern. You could consider cards like Myr Retriever, Goblin Welder, Buried Ruin, Goblin Engineer, Junk Diver, purphorous, bronze-blooded or Daretti, Scrap Savant to bring artifacts back from the graveyard. You could consider Mystic Forge, Planar Bridge, or Kuldotha Forgemaster for getting artifacts out of your deck and onto the battlefield. Darksteel Forge, Soul of New Phyrexia, or Eldrazi Monument so you're killing your artifacts only when you want to. Unwinding Clock it's good if you combine it with flash from Shimmer Myr or Vedalken Orrery. Ugin, the Ineffable or Foundry Inspector to reduce the casting cost of your artifacts without affecting the cmc. You could go full ham on some big artifact creatures like Myr Battlesphere, Meteor Golem, Duplicant, Ancient Stone Idol, Mycosynth Golem, Darksteel Colossus, Blightsteel Colossus, Platinum Angel, or Platinum Emperion just to name a few. Other ideas might be Hellkite Tyrant to steal your opponents artifacts Mycosynth Lattice to turn your non-artifacts into artifacts, Illusionist's Bracers or Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient to copy bosh's abilities, Swiftfoot Boots and/or Lightning Greaves to protect your big guy, Voltaic Key or Manifold Key to untap your rocks, or Mind's Eye or incidental card draw. Some lands to think about are Myriad Landscape, Darksteel Citadel, and Phyrexia's Core but not much else.
As per suggestions to take out : Catalyst Elemental, Destructive Digger, Forge Armor, Walking Atlas, Nahiri's Wrath, Wily Goblin (use Dockside Extortionist), Azor's Gateway Flip, Furious Rise, Generator Servant, Pirate's Pillage, Scarecrone, Filigree Familiar just to name a few.
I would like to start by saying I'm not trying to say your deck is bad, just trying to give you a lot of ideas to go off of and pointing out things that don't really go with the theme of the deck, which is ramp super hard, drop a bunch of big threats, drop bosh and kill opponents. Secondly, I am not a competitive deck builder by any means, I just use the data I have and suggest the things I like. I actually like seeing gosh in the command zone.

Coward_Token: I'm slowly making the deck more creature heavy, so I might exchange the two of them later on!
zulado: I used to have Drownyard Temple in the deck but the cost felt like it was too much each time, and there's little space for colorless utility lands so I'd rather have other card take the sacrificial role for Vaevictis. There's too little benefit from trample with Dragon Fangs, while haste is a huge benefit from Dragon Breath. Thanks for the suggestions though!
VorelNailo: Splendid Reclamation along with Life from the Loam would be the first cards I'd put in if I ever scrapped my "only permanents" restriction! The other cards fits well with a creature token strategy, which this deck doesn't have. Though I'd like to put in more non-creature token generators because Oath of Druids is a pet card of mine and having it putting out heavy threats is awesome.
king-saproling: Used to have Herald of Leshrac but it felt too slow for its mana cost. Mimic Vat looks like a much better fit now compared to last time I considered it! Path of Discovery and Titania, Protector of Argoth are good additions but I'm very unsure on what to take out for them. Replaced Sneak Attack with Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded to power down the deck, but if I get my hands on a Sneak Attack I'll put it in! Not a fan of the one time use Generator Servant, I'd rather have repeatable haste enablers and mana rocks, and I'm trying to lower the number of small creatures for Oath of Druids to accidentally hit.

It's awesome that you play with your sons. My dad taught me magic back in 2000 and we used to play plenty of EDH until he went through chemo and lost memory of how to play.. anyway I'm really thankful that he taught me and I'm sure your sons feel the same.
I'd be happy to check out your Brudiclad deck. Do you have a decklist you can send me? So far I can recommend the following cards if you don't use them already. They're for getting Brudi out quicker, which is vital for high-level games: Generator Servant, Pentad Prism, Worn Powerstone, and Coalition Relic.
Hope this helps
