Jalira, Master Polymorphist Discussion

I won't be of much help since the only one you didn't mention that I can think of is Jalira, Master Polymorphist. Honestly though if this is the deck you want to build I would run Jalira, Master Polymorphist as the commander. It does limit you to mono-blue but there are a lot of giant sea creatures in blue so it should work rather well. You can use a combination of tokens you produce and theft effects to grab opponents stuff and turn it into your own things.
Plenty of good ideas and links to decks on that page.

Whoops my bad for not noticing you essentially answered my questions in an earlier comment, in which case I've constructed a list utilizing both Young Pyromancer and Jalira, Master Polymorphist in a combo/control shell that I call Pyro-Morphist Control. Is it optimized? Who knows. Any tips or upgrades are welcome.

personally, i would remove Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, as the deck seems to have little in the way of tokens, and it seems to be one of the few lifegain cards. as for add ins, i like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Thalia's Lancers as a legendary tutor. i used to play a bant list similar to this using Jalira, Master Polymorphist as my secret commander, and having every non-legendary as a bomb like Worldspine Wurm and Angel of Serenity, while playing as many low-cmc legendaries as possible.

Acquire Board break down:
Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage is considered for replacement commander
Metalwork Colossus, Cogwork Assembler, Gonti's Aether Heart, Mechanized Production, Timestream Navigator, Magistrate's Scepter, Karn's Temporal Sundering, Nexus of Fate are to make winning more consistant
Inspiring Statuary is fun but does not do enough to justify the slot

Jalira, Master Polymorphist is a working link, and lists all appropriate sets. Strangely it doesn't appear when searched for or appear to be listed in those sets. The same is true of In Garruk's Wake.
@yeaGO maybe you wanna look into this?

So the immediate problem I see is that you're trying to run legendary and non-legendary cards together as a theme, while I think it can work just fine, it'll be very difficult to fit a tertiary theme, and it will be finicky sometimes because they will kinda of grind against each other. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker only works with non-legendary creatures. If you get a few non-legendary creatures out with Jalira, Master Polymorphist and have Heroes' Podium it's going to feel kind of bad, but it'll feel pretty good to have a it with a bunch of legends. Mirari's Wake might fit better for you.
SO relatively, I only added white pretty recently and I only have 5 white cards. Felidar Guardian because it's basically twin combo with Saheeli Rai, but also works with Kiki-Jiki, Restoration Angel I view as a protection spell that just happens to work with Kiki-Jiki. Tamiyo, Field Researcher (combos with Doubling Season and is good value), Anointed Procession (more Doubling Season/Parallel Lives effects), and Teferi's Protection (should be in every deck that can run it as it protects from Cyclonic Rift).
So if I hadn't changed this deck recently I could probably use some of your ideas and then I'd put in Village Bell-Ringer but I don't actually have a reason to just untap most creatures for just value if I need to, having only 5 creatures with Untap abilities anymore, and they are more just either combos themselves or combo protection. Say if I have Tidewater Minion and Kiora's Follower and I go to combo off with Minion and someone just Doom Blade's it I can use Follower to untap Minion and then just float literally billions of mana, here I could use Village Bell-ringer and it'd be the same thing, but Kiora's Follower can untap land for me as well, Bell-ringer can't normally, for me. So if you have more activated abilities Bell-ringer will work for you, and I'd also recommend Thousand-Year Elixir and Illusionist's Bracers if you're not already running them.
I don't play cards that can give my opponents value. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis is the only thing I run basically just for colors. I have to be in a tight spot in order to actually cast it, and it should be a partner commander combination but I had been at such a loss of what even to take out of the deck in order to get a partner combination in here. So I don't play cards like Selvala, Explorer Returned because she gives too much value to opponent's, and again I don't even play K&T unless I have to and I'd rather have partner commanders.
Just make sure all your Twin combo targets can do other things, like, I don't run Breaching Hippocamp because it doens't provide enough for me, while others like Zealous Conscripts can just take someone's Planeswalker and ult them or someone else's kiki-jiki and win, I've used Deceiver Exarch to tap down Blightsteel Colossus and prevent an attack. Interactions.
