Hua Tuo, Honored Physician Discussion

Alrighty roo, let's spend 10 minutes fixing your deck
Don't run Reap . It depends on opponents board state to function, meaning it is unreliable.
Add Prismatic Vista for increased deckthinning.
There are a whole host of other legendary cards you can be running that are 3 CMC or less. Replace any combat oriented or random buff artifacts/creature (most of the 2/3/4 CMC legendary artifacts, and also Skyship Weatherlight) with some of the following
- Rishkar, Peema Renegade turns non-summoning sick critters into mana dorks.
- Yisan, the Wanderer Bard reusable tutor on a stick
- Azor's Gateway Flip better than Heart of Kiran because it lets you loot
- Azusa, Lost but Seeking lets you dump extra lands
- Bontu's Monument even though it isn't cost reducing creatures, still playable as a wincon that doesn't require attacking or targeting. Lets you pull the Rhonas monument combo and all the extra dead cards that go along with it (Craterhoof, Crossroads,
- Bow of Nylea swiss army bow, stops you from decking yourself by untapping with Paradox Engine while Reiki is in play on an empty deck.
- Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip cradle 2.0, but triggers draw off Reiki on entering
- Hua Tuo, Honored Physician another way to stop you from decking out with Reiki in play, general value
- Melira, Sylvok Outcast legendary bear for drawing with combo busting effect, better than
You should really up creature tutor density, and add some value targets. Eldritch Evolution Chord of Calling Finale of Devastation Natural Order Time of Need Woodland Bellower Summoner's Pact Uncage the Menagerie Weird Harvest
Burgeoning Mirri's Guile Earthcraft and Oath of Nissa have far less value here than you think. I would cut them all, except possibly Earthcraft due to how well it works with Paradox engine. You should add Squirrel Nest as an alternate wincon if you keep it.
Why are you running Strip Mine ? You run no other stax pieces and no land recursion.

Like Sisay, but More Colors
Back in My Day They Were Just Creatures!
Those Who Forget History are Doomed to Lose to it.

Saskia: the Stuff of Legends
Big Sassy's Legendary Horde (note: Big Sassy as a nickname for Saskia can be used in any of these names)
Legendary Night at Saskia's Bar
History Has its Eyes on You (it's a musical reference, if you don't get it)
That's all I got for names- this one was tough! Now, suggestions:
Adun Oakenshield is okay recursion, Anafenza, the Foremost is a good body, Captain Lannery Storm is good ramp, Dosan the Falling Leaf is good against control, Grand Warlord Radha is great ramp, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician is good recursion, Isamaru, Hound of Konda is a gud boi (and a one-drop), Kambal, Consul of Allocation is good taxation without representation, Karador, Ghost Chieftain is SICK and also very flavorfully appropriate for this deck, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is great draw, Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip is a good body, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is good protection, Ravos, Soultender is good recursion, Rhonas the Indomitable is good but you'll have to see if you like God-Eternal Rhonas better (I like OG Rhonas better unless your repeating God-Eternal's ETB), Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper is good block deterrence, one of the Tajics ( Tajic, Blade of the Legion or Tajic, Legion's Edge ), both are good bodies, Tana, the Bloodsower is good body + chump blockers, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is good recursion, Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is good fun, and Zurgo Helmsmasher is a surprisingly fun political piece.
Also, I'd really recommend you include planeswalkers, and also you're running two Selvalas and two Odrics.

Hey friend, in my own Xenagod deck, I just traded out my Feldon of the Third Path for Hua Tuo, Honored Physician . I have yet to really test it much, but for the cost of a little speed I've found it to be a little more reliable. Not by much though, just for the fact that you actually get the creature back instead of just a copy.

Not super keen on Golgari Findbroker due to its CMC but its OK here, esp. since you got a lot of enchantments and like saccing lands (otherwise I'd ask you to reconsider Hua Tuo, Honored Physician ). The rest are fine too.

Caltrops is good if you are emphasizing Enrage. I think your use of Hua Tuo, Honored Physician here is clever. You can use Noxious Revival for the same effect, and if Gishath dies in combat you can cast it as a response to put her on top of your deck from the graveyard so she hits the field from your own trigger.
I would cut Harmonize . You're going to be thinning out your deck so much with Gishath triggers that I don't feel the deck needs a ton of draw. Just imo.

@osbert: Yeah someone made me discard my hand with Experiment Kraj in it and I was like WELP. Definitely need recursion.
It's a fun deck but I wonder if Kraj just shouldn't be my Commander. Probably need a Worldly Tutor at any rate.
I took Bred for the Hunt out because it seemed to conditional. I've got 11 cards with some sort of card draw. Maybe I need better options. Guardian Project , Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Beast Whisperer seem like a good ones. Maybe for Bramblewood Paragon and Tempest Caller and Chromatic Lantern .

You have Hua Tuo, Honored Physician in under performers? Every time I get him out, he does work for me. And I'm really glad to see someone else put Grim Flayer in this deck. I was baffled at how few decklists included that one.
