Metamorphic Alteration Discussion

This is a challenging tribe to build around. I would recommend checking out Saffron Olive's video on finding the competitive advantage of your tribe. Also, Tomer built a phoenix tribal deck for Commander Clash not too long ago. Watch the end to see how he wins, because it's pretty great.
In terms of specific cards, I think Mana Echoes would go well, since you need a lot of mana to enable phoenixes. Thundermaw Hellkite could be good. Lose Temple of the False God and Dormant Volcano , though, because those are awful cards. The former because it's useless as a 3rd, 4th, or 5th land, and the latter because it's just asking to be strip-mined and is both slow and makes colorless mana.
Finally, you might want to consider adding a second color. For example, in blue, you gain access to Favorable Winds , Gravitational Shift (It's freaking Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite in your deck), Sprite Noble , Stormtide Leviathan , Windstorm Drake , Warden of Evos Isle , Windreader Sphinx , Kindred Discovery , Call to the Kindred , Distant Melody , Mistform Warchief , Faces of the Past , Riptide Shapeshifter , Saheeli's Artistry , Sakashima's Student , Sakashima the Impostor , Metamorphic Alteration , Phantasmal Image , Clone , Quicksilver Gargantuan , Protean Raider , Mirror Image , Gigantoplasm , Stunt Double , Clever Impersonator , Dack's Duplicate , Phyrexian Metamorph , Coastal Piracy , and Bident of Thassa .
In white, you get Archon of Redemption , Energy Storm , Magus of the Moat (and Moat if you have unlimited money), Radiant, Archangel , Serra Aviary , Soulcatcher , Spirit of the Spires , Harsh Mercy , Shared Triumph , Kindred Boon , Mirror Entity , Radiant Destiny , . Going into Jeskai also gives you Teferi's Moat and Thunderclap Wyvern .

I made some updates and added an update thread. Metamorphic Alteration made the cut - awesome suggestion, many thanks!

Thanks for your interest in the deck! Glad to hear that you’re enjoying it. Probably the easiest cut for Force is Foil, they occupy the same slot but force is easier to free cast. It isn’t unreasonable to run both, you may even consider just cutting Counterspell or Arcane Denial.
@Polupus hey thanks for the interest in my deck! I love Kami although my brewing time has been spent elsewhere recently. I have made a few changes that I need to update the list on. By far my largest change has been adding Expropriate in that I pulled out of a different list.
I love all of your suggestions, and I also love how Kami can be built in so many ways and there are so many powerful cards! Metamorphic Alteration is an insane one - I love it and I’m going to find room to double up on Kami while also removing a commander. Pure beauty!
Kederekt Leviathan has always been on my short list. I tend to favor instant speed board wipes as they enable me to play draw go which is my preference. But honestly the card is so powerful it makes me want to break that rule whenever I consider him!
Nexus of Fate is 100% on my add list after it rotates out of standard. Just tailor made for this deck couldn’t agree more!
That last suggestion is a spicy one, wow! I dig it, I don’t know if I can find the cuts for it but I love finding out about awesome random combos like that so thanks for the suggestions!

So I’ve been playing kami a lot recently and I thought of a few cards you might enjoy...
Metamorphic Alteration is a very versatile clone effect that can shut down commanders turning them into an extra kami or go offensive turning your kami into giant monster since commander damage is tied to the creature card not the creature’s details.
Kederekt Leviathan is a mass bounce that is actually 2 mass bounce spells. It can also loop with clones like Phyrexian Metamorph. It's expensive, but it can be discarded early game till you get the mana.
Words of Wind is one I’ve just starting testing but it can turn all your draw into board control while letting you get value out of etb creatures and Paradox Engine. The other more subtle strength is it is another way to save you from decking yourself.
I don’t know how your group responds to extra turns but Nexus of Fate feels built for this commander.
All in all I’ve been having a lot of fun with this guy! I hope you get some good use from these suggestions!

Please use double-square brackets around a card's name to create a reference link. It's the easiest way to make sure everyone understands what's going on with your question, and is especially important for complicated questions: Rona, Disciple of Gix, Lazav, the Multifarious, Deadeye Tracker, Metamorphic Alteration, Trapjaw Tyrant
You'll only be able to cast cards exiled with Rona's printed abilities, not any other abilities.
When the printed text of a card has one or more abilities that exile things, and another ability that references "cards exiled by (this)", then those abilities are "linked" and the "cards exiled by (this)" ability only refers to cards in exile that were put there by those specific exiling abilities. Adding more abilities won't change this relationship. There's currently no way in the game to create new links between abilities that weren't already linked.

If i have a Kitesail Freebooter in play with lets say a Duress under it...irrelevant...and it becomes targeted by a Metamorphic Alteration to turn it into let's say a Llanowar Elves...also irrelevant...anything except the freebooter...what happens to the exiled duress? The freebooter never left the battlefield so i don't know what rulings apply.
Thanks in advance!

It's a better idea to minimize the number of 3-drops, Metamorphic Alteration is a cheaper card that turn your E.T.B creatures into better ones

Also I kind of think Chemister's Insight might function really well rather than opt, especially for turn 4 when you’re looking to find another Djinn or Favorable winds to turn the tide.
I keep finding myself able to get control or midrange down to one turn before lethal, but then they stabilize 50% of the time.
