The deck should play way more consistently now.

I had quite a long breakdown typed up but the site ate it. In hindsight, this should be more comprehenisble.
Long story short, Monocolour will be cheapest and most stable. I'll steer you away from control, as in control you tend to see a lot of the deck, which means that any 'weak link' cards show up and lose you games, combined with control's bad place in the meta its not super efficient.
Budget Plow Under/Acidic Slime/Brutalizer Exarch is great if you have access to ramp and don't mind your opponnents hating you, Teir 1 Landloss' reliance on Blood Moon does mean you'll need a heavy variant. U fearie tempo is playable- Quickling and Spellstutter Sprite with Familiar's Ruse and cheaper etb, as well as some shenanigans with Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch. The key cards that make full faeries good and controlly, Cryptic Command and Vendilion Clique are pricy as all hell though, meaning your deck will have to fit into a different neiche, likely tempo. I'll reccomend mono red 'just spam hasty creatures' for aggro, or Hunted Horror(for leyline) with a mono black list for midrange. Duress covers for a lot of gaps. Boggles is tricky as the value is spread across a lot of cards. A similar setup running heroic triggers and fragile but strong/growing creatures with Vines of Vastwood/Blossoming Defense/Heroic Intervention will likely be your best bet. Ajani's Pridemate/Voracious Wurm/It That Rides as One Flip type cards. It will be slower as you'll need the mana for protection, so bear that in mind.
Silhana Ledgewalker/Gladecover Scout/Slippery Bogle/Invisible Stalker is pretty cheap, the trick is making them pump out the damage without the dumb enchantments or the protection of totem armour. You might manage that with a dumb interaction like Dictate of the Twin Gods, or just counterspells and Banshee's Blade type threat growing.
I enjoy building decks more than I enjoy playing, honestly, so If you let me know what sort of deck you want to emulate, I'll see what I can dredge up to support it. If you can figure out 3-4 cards you want to play every game, thats most of the deck already there.

Dissipation Field and Propaganda are for the early/mid game, The problem you will run into with shapeshifters is that often times you will have to wait and curdle until your opponents play their good minions. Dissipation Field and Propaganda both buy you time until this point in the game.
Aqueous Form, well, currently, our main win condition is the combat step, with things like Ulamog's Crusher and Gigantoplasm, we want to whack our opponents with either those or their own big creatures. Aqueous Form just gives us a way to make those unblockable if we haven't been able to Gigantoplasm our Invisible Stalker.
Lastly, Kami of the Crescent Moon may seem like an odd choice, but a subtheme of the deck is card draw, i have yet to pick up some crucial cards (see my maybeboard), but Kami of the Crescent Moon allows us to get early card draw and hopefully make our opponents overdraw ever so slightly.
Thanks for checking out the deck and I hope this clears things up for you!

Not sure how I didn't +1 this at all yet, but thanks for coming up with this deck! I actually made this deck as the first deck I have ever owned for EDH. I made a few minor changes to it that you might like as well that are generally just better options.
1 CMC lower and 3 lower toughness for both Hexproof and the ability to either make Mimeoplasm pseudo unblockable, enable Mimeoplasm to be pseudo unblockable, and/or enable your entire field to be pseudo unblockable (especially off living death). Need more be said?
I saw that you were looking at this one already, and I would say its worth it putting it in. While it is a bit weaker body and 1 CMC higher, everything on your field can't be touched by targeting, and your opponents stuff can be, which opens them up to Avatar of Woe other people taking out their stuff (usually their commander).
Unless you are going to play something from another color, this is strictly better in every way and cheaper.
The other things I changed were things you had already suggested on the maybeboard or just cheaper options, such as Invisible Stalker for Looter il-Kor and Command Tower for Dryad Arbor. Either way, thanks you so much for making the deck!

Wow! The AEtherling is a nice card, i didnt know it (and i will definitely add it)! I'm already start to make some changes, including the Invisible Stalker and adding some other creatures more stronger for the late game. I think it is a little better now, what do you think? Thanks a lot for yout help, Firebones675.
