Shrazik on Brudiclad's transformers

An important bit of information to remember is that Brudiclad's second ability applies to ALL TOKENS, not just creature tokens. So cards like Brass's Bounty or Curse of Opulence become game ending.

As for suggested cards, I agree with BS-T that there are a few cards in here that will tend to under perform, especially the larger legendary creatures. I'm saying that they are bad, just that you shouldn't rely of getting Helm of the Host to make it work. You have the right idea when it comes to putting in cards like Ancient Stone Idol, Blightsteel Colossus, Sharding Sphinx. Getting a token of one of these cards is almost gonna guarantee you a victory. These are the kinds of cards that you wanna be running. So lets add some cards that do this.

Cards like Reef Worm, Scuttling Doom Engine, and Hangarback Walker are gonna protect you from the inevitable board wipe. Lets be honest if you're playing tokens, board wipes will all kill you. And people will definitely be saving them to use on you.

Efficient Construction, Tamiyo's Journal, Clone Legion, and Metallurgic Summonings will help you rebuild your board state just in case you're on the receiving end of a Cyclonic Rift. A card that has become far too common in the commander/EDH format.

Flameshadow Conjuring, Twinflame, Heat Shimmer are cards that will get you tokens of those heavy hitters when you're ready to swing in for the kill.

I hope that my suggestions help you in some way. I tried to explain my reasoning as best I could. Either way the important thing is that you have the information. However you decide to use it is up to you.

Have you considered adding Heat Shimmer? With the ability to copy tokens, being able to make a token of any creature on the battlefield could be pretty powerful.

Since you're running Heat Shimmer and Twinflame I recommend running a copy of Dualcaster Mage because of the infinite combo that he can generate with one of the other two cards. What's great is that he too is useful in your strategy with Zada, being able to copy spells like Mana Geyser, Inner Fire and even Bonus Round.

I would cut Glorybringer, Hellrider, Precursor Golem, Retrofitter Foundry, Heat Shimmer and Treasure Map  Flip. To start with.

I might also think about adding Mogg Infestation and Snake Basket

Breath of Fury would be infinite combat rounds

I just watched the YouTube video for this deck and I have to say, while I think the deck is brilliant in its simplicity, there were a number of cards that popped out to me that weren't mentioned that I think deserve to be in the deck, or at least deserve consideration.

First off, you covered blue duplication spells pretty well, but didn't really cover red ones. Off the top of my head there are 2 sorcery speed (I know instant is preferable) options in Heat Shimmer and Twinflame. While on the subject of duplication spells a great red creature to pair with them is Dualcaster Mage for infinite token copies of himself. One the note of token-creating creatures, I was extremely surprised that Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker didn't make the cut.

Watching the video got me thinking about an old deck I had with Mirrorwing Dragon and Zada, Hedron Grinder, where I would utilize its ability with a token strategy and duplication tricks. Having several creatures on the board and hitting Mirrorwing with Heat SHimmer to duplicate my whole board was always my favorite trick with the deck. I think that tactic would fit in nicely here.

Here's how I think about this commander: You want two types of creature token. A) ones that are cheap/free to flood the board and B) ones that are copies of cool creatures with abilities you can exploit.

Your A Column is pretty solid. The only one I'd add is Genesis Chamber and/or The Locust God... Things that make Treasure or Clue tokens are pretty good because they'll add value OR attack. Additionally, Since lots of your small creatures are on ETB trigers Panharmonicon could be good.

Your Column B is so-so. You've got Feldon of the Third Path and Helm of the Host, but those are pretty slow and obvious. Mimic Vat, Heat Shimmer, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Rite of Replication, Supplant Form, Cackling Counterpart, Zndrsplt's Judgment and Fated Infatuation all could get you the token you need to make a deadly strike out of nowhere. An interesting combo here could be Precursor Golem so targeted instants make TONS of copies if you turn your army into golems. Creatures with Embalm and Eternalize Mechanics could fall into this category, too.

There's a Column C, too, I guess, which is creatures that get Attack triggers. Inferno Titan and Frost Titan come to mind, but just things to go ham when all your weenies turn into that thing.

Great Brew, man! I wish you luck and I look forward to how this evolves!
