Thanks, SentientRhombus for your feedback. After some ghost testing I had come to the same conclusion as you regarding equipment digging. I had considered adding some alternate equipment to fall back on; such as Helm of the Host . I like your recursion ideas as well, and your thoughts on some control. I had also thought of Riftsweeper , so Pull from Eternity makes a lot of sense. Although it is not in the list, I had planned to add Magnetic Theft as a way to go off with Eradicate . The mana base is made up of cards I already have, so it wasn't a big concern of mine. I had borrowed it from my other Jodah deck, but I am considering some alterations since the balance of colors and costs is considerably different. I do appreciate your suggestions and will be taking many to heart.

Some cards I think you could cut; Demonic Tutor - there isn't a combo you're working towards, is there? And if not, seems like a situational card at best. Do you need both Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar ? Helm of the Host seems too expensive to ever bother using. 9 mana before you can get any benefit out of it is a high cost indeed. I just think Orzhov Cluestone is bad. I could be wrong.

Holy Cow I just realized this list is 30 cards heavy. Start by cutting almost all of the common creatures. That'll get rid of up to 15 cards. Some of these are obvious includes, but I think outside of the 1-drops, their value is lacking.

sunny_solari if you can get a Helm of the Host on her then you have to worry with multicolored decks too. It would be even worse with Anointed Procession

Maybe a card like Helm of the Host could be useful for making clones of your powerful legendary creatures and Omnath, Locus of Mana would be a good addition for stocking up on mana as long as you can protect him. Then maybe a mana doubler like Zendikar Resurgent would be a good option.

Helm of the Host would be insane with Brood. "attack you with 2 Broods. Make 30 Sandybois"

In no particular order, I've got some suggestions you might have a look at. Some cards are just to round out the deck and give you a little more defensive capability, and others are to fully lean-into the self-mill theme you've got going. In particular, you might want to put in more blink effects so you can tap your Petitioners more than once per turn/round.

Still a super freaking cool concept! It turns what the card was MEANT to do on its head, and makes it that much more potent (it's easier to mill just one person-- yourself-- than it is to try and handle all your opponents at once instead).
