Hey again, I've been collecting some more cards for you to look over, but before I post them I'd like to know a bit more about the deck in its present condition:
Academy Rector: Enlightened Tutor has been hovering on the maybeboard for a while now, are you making the switch? I feel that the ability to search for artifacts in addition to enchantments would do the deck well since that category both contains card advantage and ramp. Because the deck does not contain very expensive enchantments relative to its ramp, I assume the main purpose of the Rector is to more readily bring out answers and/or rattlesnake? (I can also see it being less of a clumsy link in a future tutor chain with e.g. the Recruiters since it's a creature.)
Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker: Seems anti-synergetic with token gifting, Goblin Spymaster most of all. I'll admit though that plenty of your cards let you alleviate this by being more selective and that it makes weenie-only board wipes backfire a bit.
Aside from the two abovementioned, are there any cards in particular that you're thinking of switching out?

Hey gang, first thread here so please feel free to provide any constructive criticism! Haven't been active in a forum for quite some time..
Anyways, I'm contemplating sort of an odd strategy to utilize Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa as a general. I'm considering Vial Smasher the Fierce or Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist as his partner. Right now it seems like black brings more to the table for this particular strategy and I love b/w removal options but it's possible there are things I've overlooked in blue, and Ludevic insentivizes the kind of thing I'm going for and gives me access to Edric, Spymaster of Trest for total craziness!
The main strategy of this deck would be to give my opponents little 1/1 and 2/2 tokens to hit each other with providing evasion with Kondo, maybe turn up the heat with goad and goad-like effects while trying to deter combat damage directed to myself with cards like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Crawlspace, Dictate of Erebos, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Mystic Barrier. You get the picture!
Mob Rule, Insurrection, Army of the Damned and Massacre Wurm are possible win conditions and Overseer of the Damned, Blood Artist, Soul Warden, Vicious Shadows, and Revel in Riches benefit from a carnage of etb and death triggers. I can also benefit from the Commander 2017 curses so that's something to consider as well!
What I feel I need the most help with is cards that put tokens into the battlefield under an opponent(s) control. They're definitely a corner case and it's not entirely easy to do a search for them either seeing how the wording varies quite a bit for cards that do this!
Some I've found are:
- Akroan Horse
- Hunted Dragon (as well as others within the 'hunted' cycle)
- Alliance of Arms
- Sylvan Offering
- Tempt with Vengeance
- Infernal Genesis
- Reality Shift
- Goblin Spymaster
I'd also love to hear some interesting synergies if someone comes up with any! This will definitely be a casual deck so no suggestion is too outside of the box, please feel free!
P.S. ooooooh! I just discovered Mogg Infestation!!

tokens and boardwipes (and something to tutor up Revel in Riches).
Or there's Goblin Spymaster
If your games usually have a lot of creatures on the board everywhere you don't even need to run these cards, just running wraths and removal should be enough.

Mrf1shie, thanks for taking a look at the deck.
I haven't tried Fumiko specifically but I have tried that effect with Goblin Diplomats and Goblin Spymaster. My experience was that people would agree to attack me out of spite for being forced to attack (even with the pillowfort). That is why I prefer cards like Disrupt Decorum and Besmirch because you force them to attack each other. Curse of Opulence and Duelist's Heritage are great because it gives them a bonus of they attack someone else. Maybe the mindset of your playgroup is different and you won't run into the same problem of people attacking you out of spite. Just want to warn you this MAY happen, especially after they figure out what Marchesa is up to.

I'm working on a new Mathas, Fiend Seeker Deck where everyone attacks each other. The ideas I had so far were: putting C17 curses on people, attacking tax (Ghostly Prison, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs), things like Disrupt Decorum, or if things get bad, Goblin Spymaster+ Blazing Archon . If you have any ideas, please comment. There is a Curses/Enchantments subtheme.

Spirit_Logan LOL! Alright, I missed Bedlam that ones actually pretty cool. Also be careful how heavily you rely on enchantments. Someone gets a Aura Shards or a Bane of Progress and it'll just wreck your day. I speak from experience!
And I LOVED Goblin Spymaster until I realized that the token doesn't get created until the end of the opponent's turn, not their upkeep. Meaning it has to survive a full round and get back to them without it dying in order to force them to attack. Its basically just handing them a free chump block or sacrifice fodder and will rarely do what you want. You're better off with Fumiko the Lowblood!
