Exile all creature cards from target player's graveyard in a face-down pile, shuffle that pile, then manifest those cards. (To manifest a card, put it onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 creature. Turn it face up at any time for its mana cost if it's a creature card.)

Wow this is great considering the budget. There are so many decent cards here I've never seen before. I'm thinking these are some good alternates that wouldn't push the budget too bad if one wanted to invest a little more in the deck: Pitiless Plunderer , Fell Shepherd , Warstorm Surge , Zulaport Cutthroat , Gleancrawler , Moldervine Reclamation , Ogre Battledriver , Second Harvest , Caustic Caterpillar , Elemental Bond , Wild-Field Scarecrow , Qarsi High Priest , Ghastly Conscription , Death's Presence , Thermopod

Abzkaban this is my casual list so I intentionally cut out streamline win conditions. The closest combo I have is the pickles softlock with Brine Elemental and Vesuvan Shapeshifter , but otherwise Ghastly Conscription and Thieving Amalgam are enough to overwhelm the board.

I’m trying to brew Kadena myself because of how much freaking fun she is to play. I love all the flash and top deck manipulation, but I’m wondering what the win con is. Is it just swing with a bunch of 2/2s after a Ghastly Conscription ? Have you considered Aetherflux Reservoir or Tendrils of Agony as possible storm wins?

Cut. Now the Grace Period begins. Assuming what is stated to be true, these would be the final cuts still in the running:
Sultai Charm (I guess the Modes are alright?)
Ghastly Conscription (Maybe this isn't as bad as I thought...)
Villainous Wealth (How was I able to ignore this?)
Obscuring AEther (Another Morph Mana Support that can even Manifest Itself. Dang...)
Secret Plans (Yeah, give the Morphs, Megamorphs, & Manifests +0/+1 & flip them Face-Up for Card Advantage? BAM!)
1x Wilderness Reclamation (I dunno, I still like Seedborn Muse …)
Cabal Executioner (I, mean, we have effects that negate sacing enemy permanents now. Can't we have Destroy Target Creature"? Oh, wait, we have two in these colors, but "Destroy Target nonblack Creature" & Destroying one that's Power 3 of lower is lame. But how good is this guy?)
Eternal Witness (Wait, how the bloody hell is this lass here?!)
Qarsi Deceiver (A mana Dork for Morph Effects, but one said I should have enough anyway.)
Root Elemental (Playing a card for free is awesome; especially something REALLY good...)
Silent Specter (There are no Morph effects to forcibly make an opponent discard their whole hand. Might as well make due with a flier I guess...)
Temur War Shaman (Manifesting the Top Card? At least the Fight Mechanic is Optional...)
Thought Harvester (NANI?! An Eldrazi Mutilates my Upside Down Stuff?! I just hope I can mill everyone before I mill myself...)
Whisperwood Elemental (Manifesting at each of your End Steps is great. even Saccing them, even if you sac this guy just to have others die, at least we're getting more Manifestoes.)
Cloud Key (Sure, choosing Creatures would be prime here, but what about Enchantments? Artifacts? Instants? Sorceries? They're options as well.)
Cloudstone Curio (This is required to mill the crap of your opponents. But we've enough Draw Engines to the point where Words of Wind is mandatory; at least Thought Harvester doesn't care about card draw stuff though...)
1x Crystal Shard (Strictly WORSE than the Curio as it has a price, & only affects creatures.)
1x Dimir Signet (Is it worth adding in the Signets as well as the Talismans? I'll leave that to you all to decide...)
1x Golgari Signet (See Dimir Signet.)
1x Helm of Awakening (This is the only "Spells cost less to cast" card I could find, but it also benefits the opposition.)
Lightning Greaves (Maybe I should don these awesome greaves again. You agree?)
Scroll of Fate (What more do you want? A free Manifest, & you will always know it's a creature or not, WHY DID I CUT THIS?!)
1x Simic Signet (See Dimir Signet.)
Which deserve the final replacing's? I'm leaving this to you...
& I apologize for all this text; I just wanted to show what I do recommend, & otherwise.

Apologies for the previous dupli-comment. The server was a bit off at the time...
Well, as an update to the deck: at least we can say Volrath, the Shapestealer is out, & Ezuri 2.0 will be staying for a very long while...
Also, being able to BOUNCE Mantfests to your hand w/ Temur Sabertooth , Words of Wind , even Scroll of Fate allows you a choice for Manifestation. While killing the ones you DON'T own via Thieving Amalgam is like a perfect vengeance; even cards like Qarsi Deceiver , Temur War Shaman , Whisperwood Elemental , even Ghastly Conscription , Ethereal Ambush , & even Write into Being .
Also adding Cloudform , We have an amount of 115 cards in so far; or 114 if nobody wants me adding such a card. From there, we have 2 things left; the 3rd Question about what helps Creatures; Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifest all apply to these Bylaws. & since all start as Faceless 2/2 Colorless Face-Down Token Creatures, the question now is: In Colors, what would be good for both , cards, & those w/ eith 2 Power and/or 2 Toughness, or lower even?
From there it's the first, & last question: What to Cut?!
I'll proceed in removing some of these things; they've been established anyway. :)
So, what cards that can support basically any Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifests (Colorless 2/2 Face Down Tokens.) can help big here?
I'm done for now; I'll just remove some things as they're accomplished...

Notably, Ghastly Conscription and Jeskai Infiltrator specifically instruct you to shuffle the face-down cards so that your opponents don't know which is which, as you're not allowed to do that after they're already on the battlefield.

Thanks for the feedback,
While Ghastly Conscription is a more expensive card to play, I've never run into an issue with mana to play it. From the several games I played with an incomplete version of the deck I've still managed to ramp enough where it isn't an issue. So sure they can try to RIP, but the deck has enough answers to either counter or remove RIP.
As for instant interaction my commander doesn't necessarily need to be on the board for me to make use of the the morph abilities. She simply allows me to cast one more spell for free. I'd still be able to morph at instant speed to counter spells, but perhaps you can elaborate further on what you mean?
There's a reason I don't run board wipes in the deck. It generally causes more harm to my field than good, while the deck can recover quick enough in the instances of a board wipe I opt not to run it as I have more than enough responses to counter what may potentially be a threat. Other than the rift, I run Bane of the Living .
Not sure how in depth you looked it over, but there is definitely a method to my madness. :D Most of the deck has a lot of interaction, but if you could provide some card suggestions of what you would constitute as generically good cards I'd certainly appreciate it. Thanks
