- Reason: This is for test purposes. Trade a morph for a steal effect. Probably a questionable swap, will see how it works out.
Gift of Doom --> Whisperwood Elemental - Reason: Even less morphs I know. Although for 'protection' I feel the Elemental is bettet and more impactful.
Sea Gate Wreckage --> Homeward Path - Reason: Sea Gate Wreckage feels too situational. Homeward Patch could help various spells like Perplexing Chimera or Sudden Substitution .
If I count correctly, this leaves us with 15 morphs only though which is not a lot.

For wincons you can always Craterhoof Behemoth , if you don't like that card try, End-Raze Forerunners , Pathbreaker Ibex , or Triumph of the Hordes . Gift of Doom is spicy, but probably not a good card. If you run one more ramp spell, you can probably afford to run 36-37 lands.

Monitor Thanks, I'm glad you like it! Yeah I did a lot of thinking for the cuts of this deck. Yahenni was definitely not an easy one to pick, but I have a lot of Sac outlets already and he didn't give me a ton of value. the Gift of Doom provides great protect for Kresh, and can save him from being bullied by bigger creatures, especially since he's only a 3/3.
Overall, I'm enjoying the changes of this deck. Mana Crypt has yet to be seen in play. I bought it originally for my Xenagos, God of Big Boys deck, so I proxied the one in here and another in my Nekusar, Take the Wheel! deck since I wasn't about to spend upwards of $600 for the same card 3 times lol. It feels a lot better. Cabal Coffers has been putting in a ton of work though! It definitely keeps my turn going for much longer, allowing me to have more of presence at the table.

I'm really liking the focus you have here -- duplicate effects for Grave Pact / Dictate of Erebos and the trifecta of Doubling Season , Primal Vigor , and Parallel Lives is great redundancy. In my build I went less redundancy (apart from both Primal Vigor and Doubling Season included) and more card draw, through Fecundity and Smothering Abomination .
My thoughts on your most recent change log: Tana is a valid cut for you, I think. I'm able to get her out on Turn 3 every now and then, turn 2 once so far, and turn 4 almost every game, so there is almost 100% chance someone is getting hit with her. If everyone gets their board state up quick, then she sits back and waits until Reyhan can dump counters on her head or I can give her fear/pump. I'm almost 100% of the time okay trading her into a ton of saprolings after a Kessig Wolf Run pump to kick start my token engines.
Your whole manabase I actually envy, mine has proven to not always give me the red I need so I'm looking at tweaking it a bit here soon.
Yahenni, Undying Partisan is an interesting take-out, he's on my testing list, I think. Gift of Doom looks great, I look forward to hearing out it hold up in testing. Looking elsewhere there isn't much else that would come out instead of Yahenni, Undying Partisan , though, so I think that's the right cut.
I'm gonna be interested to hear how Mana Crypt plays out -- 3 life is not insignificant when it ticks every turn, but I bet the speed really makes up for it. I dislike durdling in my builds when I can help it, so don't run Chromatic Lantern in my current build.
As always, a great source of inspiration here, for sure.

Oh wow, what a honour, Xelerat! Nice to know that there are more Phenax guys around.
Protection is definitely lacking, I will try to look into that, but there are many directions possible:
Adding more counterspells, even though I wouldn't, personally, as I already got another deck with many of those.
Adding some recursion in order to be able to retrieve important pieces from the yard. If this is consistent, I could even consider milling myself a bit here and there to find what I need. Just not too much, as I already have a Meren deck. On the note of milling myself, LabJace seems interesting.
The last hypothesis seems the better choice, I'll try to check and see if I get any better results this way.

Well, If you switch back to Xantcha: then my licid statement still holds true. + my other suggestions. + Gift of Doom will be great. + Visions of Brutality + Vow of Malice + Vow of Lightning . Soul Conduit has been fun in my Xantcha deck. Do I think these are major game winners? Not really, but they are high levels of political & unusual decision forcings. And on the plus side with Xantcha, you don't have to load a deck with card draw for the sake of draw, since you should plan on activating the commander for this reason. Scheming Symmetry seems like a must-add for political mayhem. Tutors can actually be fun in a deck that doesn't contain tempting "win now/combo" cards.
