Daedalus19876: I've added all the cards, time for cutting and suggesting.

The goal of this deck is summed up in four points:

--- Build up a huge boardstate of creatures(and their cloned tokens) with immense ETB value, doubled with Panharmonicon.

--- Draw ALL the cards (and maybe win "accidentally" with Laboratory Maniac).

--- Ramp everything to heck, sometimes even getting every land in the deck out onto the battlefield (occasionally with the help of a few infinite mana combos).

--- Have fun in the game. Sometimes making political plays; sometimes using group hug cards, it wishes to make everyone at the table smile. That is, until you one-punch them in the face with your aforementioned huge boardstate.

You make a valid point about cast triggers which I will follow, but I'm at least keeping Kozilek, Butcher of Truth in so I will be protected from mill strategies (if I drew my entire deck myself, I'd already have Maniac).

Ah I see you updated this, my iPad had died before I hot to share my suggestions, and it looks like you added a bunch of them. Here is what I was going to share, you may even find something you may want that you had missed.

Omnath, Locus of Mana instead as your command perhaps, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Mana Reflection, Beacon of Creation, Exploration, Burgeoning, Boundless Realms, Primeval Titan, Beacon of Discovery, Primeval Bounty, Retreat to Kazandu, Zendikar's Roil, Lotus Cobra, Explore Gaea's Touch, Rampaging Baloths, Ulvenwald Hydra + Rogue's Passage, Avenger of Zendikar, Embodiment of Insight, Courser of Kruphix, Dungrove Elder, Kalonian Twingrove.

Regal Behemoth, Zendikar Resurgent, Patron of the Orochi, Vernal Bloom, Caged Sun, Yavimaya Elder and Helix Pinnacle are other ideas.

Early Harvest, Tireless Tracker, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Karametra's Acolyte,then a card that I always liked was Elderscale Wurm and this works well with devotion strategies.

For lands have Rogue's Passage, Myriad Landscape, Reliquary Tower and make use of Rishkar's Expertise, Nissa's Revelation and other similar effects, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, then just forests wil do unless you want to go with Eldrazi then use Shrine of the Forsaken Gods, Sanctum of Ugin, Eye of Ugin and so on too.

I will try and help out with cutting down your creatures soon, you can if you want share decklists with others if you look within "edit" so that I am able to make changes to this deck otherwise I will do up something separate. The thing is, is that green is pretty good at making token related cards and that's why you can get away with a lot less creatures, and the ones you do have can be big such as Kozilek, Butcher of Truth for example.

Thanks for the input RakdosCult, I do agree based on my play testing that card draw was a decently large problem within the deck and even with big drops that draw cards, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth it was rather poor at keeping a hand.I really like the land suggestion, as of before today I never heard of it and it would be an easy mana fixer. In a previous version I had a few single mana dorks that after lots of play testing had little impact, so I am trying to scrape up some funds for some higher end ones, i.e Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch. I will try to pick up the land and the Rhystic Study but with my funds being focused on other purchases I will pick up Consecrated Sphinx at a later date. Thanks again for the input and I will keep this updated with the deck's advancements.

I'm surprised you run Altar of Dementia as a combo piece. I had to pull mine out, because my opponents would always have either; Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in their decks making them impossible to be milled since the titans would just reshuffle their graveyards back into their decks.

I would advise running Goblin Bombardment since it will do infinite damage guaranteeing you a win. If the red mana is too harsh for a deck that runs Contamination then I'd suggest using Blasting Station which works just as well. Nice work on the Alesha deck by the way.

To build on what JaysomeDecks recommended, there are several cards to combo off of with Niv-Mizzet and Mind Over Matter as well.

You can use Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to enable yourself to draw literally infinite cards without fear of milling yourself out and to deal infinite damage to your opponents. You can also pull off a combo with Mind Over Matter, Ulamog/Kozilek, and Temple Bell to mill out your opponents while your deck keeps some cards in it.

Another possibility with Niv-Mizzet and Mind Over Matter would be to use Charisma on Niv-Mizzet to ping everything and take all of your opponents' creatures.
