Thank you KrosanTusker for taking the time to review and make productive suggestions on a casual deck, I really appreciate it, especially since this is a style of play I don't normally build around.
I hadn't even realized that the War-Wing Siren is a soldier. Great pick up on that. That sure does make the Armorsmith more desirable in this deck. I am however concerned with it being White. I can't put the Ring on him in order to pump him if need be. But that shouldn't matter much. Wingcrafter and Augur of Bolas are two I have been considering since I've posted this deck however.
Veteran Armorsmith - Boost the "Attack" of my creatures for WW
Personally, I can see any of these three helping.
I would like to fit 3-4 Inside Out into the deck once I can purchase/find them in order to make the Twisted part of the deck more consistent. To make room for them, I can see myself removing 1 Jace, Architect of Thought, but can't see myself justifying the removal of all three. Do you have any suggestions for the other 2-3 Slots? Maybe 1 Ponder and 1 Ordeal of Thassa?
Ok. These are IMO not great concerning their ETB abilities; Timberland Guide, Resolute Archangel, Omenspeaker, Karametra, God of Harvests, Frontier Guide, Archon of Justice. They are either irrelevant (Archon of Justice, Timberland Guide, Frontier Guide) or just not powerful enough to actually spend the mana bouncing them (Omenspeaker, Resolute Archangel). Karametra, God of Harvests isn't a great option; Bouncing your creatures isn't the same as casting so his ability likely won't trigger crazy often making him a heavy nearly worthless enchantment.
A number of your other cards are spot on; Acidic Slime, Clever Impersonator, Elvish Visionary, Wall of Omens, Thragtusk, Solemn Simulacrum. All of these are rather powerful when they occur multiple times. Stonehorn Dignitary is pretty nice control. I like Quarry Colossus. Sea Gate Oracle could be nice also. Definitely check TheFanatic's deck for some great ideas.
I agree with TheFanatic about how to win with Roon of the Hidden Realm. He is a rather control oriented commander and will certainly draw a lot of hate in your direction which is just so very gratifying.
You ought to play cards like Omenspeaker because you get the scry 2 and they get a weakling.
Prophet of Kruphix and Kiora's Follower make yisan a lot faster, Sedge Scorpion as a singleton provides a nice 1-drop target (so you don't always just get Elvish Mystic. Satyr Wayfinder (value) and Sylvan Caryatid, are probably the two best 2-drops (along with the follower), but a few other options could be Rakshasa Deathdealer (flexible), Heir of the Wilds (deathtouch), Black Cat (value- kill an X/1 make them discard), Quickling (protection), Omenspeaker(blocker with random value), Returned Phalanx (bulky/efficient). For 3-drops, you get Reclamation Sage (value), Hornet Queen (you're attacking with polukranos are you?), Courser of Kruphix (it's good), Frost Lynx (stall a huge attacker), Illusory Angel (efficiency). In the 4-slot you've got Polukranos, World Eater for a huge guy, Sidisi, Brood Tyrant for value, Nylea's Disciple for lifegain, Reaper of the Wilds for resiliency, Clever Impersonator for cleverly impersonating things, and Eidolon of Blossoms for value. The 5-slot is more limited, with the only really good options being prophet, Sultai Soothsayer, Pharika's Mender, Doomwake Giant and Arbor Colossus (you don't need many up this high though, which is good, as yisan needs to survive for a long time to get here). In the 6-slot there is Hydra Broodmaster, Hythonia the Cruel, Sagu Mauler, Kalonian Twingrove, the souls, Terra Stomper and maybe ob nixilis in response to a fetchland :). At 7 there is Hornet Queen, Abhorrent Overlord or Pearl Lake Ancient, and I wouldn't bother going above that. Some of these aren't going to be useful depending on what you're aiming to do. In a fully aggro meta Nylea's Disciple will be more useful than the control nightmare known as reaper. There are also gods to consider, which I haven't included. Good luck :)
I'm a little confused as to what your main strategy is with this deck, perhaps a more descriptive description? , is it supposed to be a blue aggro deck? If it is your creatures lack real offensive power. And if it is centered around Master of Waves i feel like you are missing a lot of synergy by not including any elementals. I think you also have more scry than you probably need with Sigiled Starfish and Omenspeaker AND Thassa, God of the Sea. I'd look to replace the starfish, IMHO.
The Serum Powder is a must have, as the deck mulligans until it gets a turn 1 Quest... speaking from experience not having that turn 1 is a really bad idea. You just can't durdle around when your "combo" needs 4 turns to trigger under optimal circumstances, and then you need another 3 turns to kill the opponent,
MindAblaze! I think Omenspeaker is a great idea! I will probably swap out the Sigiled Starfish for it tho, as generally speaking, being able to manipulate the deck the turn a creature enters is stronger than each turn after -- missing a trigger is just so bad in this deck.
