Irregular Cohort Discussion

First off, you'll want a couple more lands, commander when you can't play anything sucks

A quick note: The commander you have chosen gives you the ability to run a lot more colorless "utility" lands, some fun ones are: Arch of Orazca Blighted Steppe Buried Ruin etc.

I think you'll want some card draw and some more removal as well as any ramp you can get. Here are some budget options for each:

(Note: most of these are not auto-includes, with you needing to build the deck into them a little, except for ramp, just take some and go)

Card Draw Mentor of the Meek (if it fits with the other cards), Bygone Bishop??, Monarch cards like Palace Jailer will be easier for bushido to defend netting you extra cards per turn, but drawing fire from opponents

Removal Generous Gift, Settle the Wreckage, Day of Judgment, Dusk(most of your creatures duck the board wipe), Urza's Ruinous Blast, Slaughter the Strong, Harsh Mercy (Look at this one if nothing else)

Ramp Sol Ring (I hate that this is a card that goes in any deck, but it pairs really nicely well with your commander's ability), Solemn Simulacrum, Oketra's Monument, Knight of the White Orchid, Marble Diamond, Heraldic Banner, Caged Sun is cool, Kor Cartographer, Gold Myr

Other interesting stuff: Mirror Entity could be fun and interesting, Irregular Cohort really helps pump your samurai numbers, Brave the Elements pairs with all the white critters, Reveillark can get two of your samurai back or be a flying body if needed, Thalia's Lancers can go get an important legendary cards you want, I think Eidolon of Rhetoric may be interesting, maybe good, maybe not, Elspeth, Undaunted Hero's Ultimate is maybe achievable with so many blockers and potential very big with all of your white pips, Heliod, God of the Sun, Changeling Hero

Deadeye Navigator,Soulherder,Brago, King Eternal All allow you blink or flicker scarecrows in and out to get more etb removal with your commander.

Minion Reflector,Mimic Vat,Both these artifacts let you make short term copies of a scarecrow for 2-3 mana. These not only can be used to swing but allow will count as 2-3 mana permanent removal with your commander

Crib Swap,Irregular Cohort, Both give extra triggers of the commander through changelings and shapeshifters. Irregular Cohort also is two triggers on one body.

Ephemerate, is a one mana blink creatures once for two turns essentially giving you two blow up triggers for one mana

Conjurer's Closet, Gives you a blink each turn for recurring value

Mirror Entity, not only will give you a way to destroy a permanent because it is a changeling but also gives you a win condition if you have a lot of scarecrows.

Irregular Cohort would be amazing. It could make you ready to combo off with just 1 egg instead of needing 2.

Except, unless I'm mistaken, Wheel of Sun and Moon would shot down egg triggers from all of your changeling and egg cards, the only eggs that work through WheeloSaM are the tokens Atla creates. They still trigger Atla, but the eggs on actual cards are going to be intercepted by Wheel oSaM before they can trigger Atla. Am I mistaken?

I've updated the deck by going Orzhov and adding a bunch of cheap white changelings like Impostor of the Sixth Pride , Avian Changeling , and Irregular Cohort . I've also included three copies of Brainspoil to tutor up Liliana's Contract . The deck is now much more consistent overall.

Progenitor Mimic is a cheaper Helm of the Host type effect but it’s less reliable because it triggers on upkeep instead of combat. Although this is offset by cheaper mana investment and it can target opposing creatures. As for card advantage there’s things like Mulldrifter and Phyrexian Gargantua for ETB based draw. For incremental draw there’s cards like Staff of Nin , Monastery Siege , and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. For one off draw effects I really like Drawn from Dreams , Urban Evolution , and Game Plan . Also another sweet card in here would be Irregular Cohort . All these cards are very cheap. The mimic is around $2-$4 but that’s cheaper than helm so still worth. Anyways +1 from me and if you get a chance go check out my Pir and Toothy deck.
