Amputator on Reign of Giants

I'm just about to buy this deck, not changing much. I'll replace Geosurge with Seething Song and since Lightning Bolt , Lightning Helix and Boros Charm are out of my budget, I replaced them with 2 Pyroclasm (to wipe the field if the opponent has an aggro deck, 2 Incinerate and 2 Make a Stand (I'm not too sure about this one actually. Was looking for a good alternative for Boros Charm ). I also added 2 Chained to the Rocks for protection against other big things and 1 Hundred-Handed One because I like the idea of his combo with Palisade Giant and Favor of the Mighty . Can't wait to try it out!

Olivia's Dragoon and Ravenous Bloodseeker can be really useful discard outlets. Palisade Giant is a great "fog" effect that can save you some beats.

Lets say a "6/6" and a "6/6 First Strike" are attacking

I block the "6/6 First Strike" with Palisade Giant and let the other "6/6" through

After First strike damage resolves:I cast Cloudshift targeting Palisade Giant

That should allow me to soak up all 12 damage without losing my Giant or any life correct?

I see that you are running Palisade Giant, have you thought about maybe switching it out for Protector of the Crown? it seems like it would be worth it, I mean it replaces itself right after playing it, and puts the monarch into the game to shake things up.

I know you lose a toughness and all, but I think it'll be worth the switch.

On the same note as Palisade Giant, Beacon of Destiny, General's Regalia, Oracle's Attendants, Pariah, Pariah's Shield, and Empyrial Archangel. Regalia and the Pariahs are great with indestructible creatures, so maybe have an indestructible commander

Also, Delaying Shield seems really good here with a lich on the battlefield. They only trigger when you are dealt damage, not when you lose life, so you can't be killed through their triggers.

I would look at doing for colors. Maybe Anafenza, the Foremost so that your opponents will have to exile a bunch of things too? This will give you access to green so you can always ramp into the black you need and give you Sterling Grove and Privileged Position. I would also put Avacyn, Angel of Hope and other indestructible in the deck.

this link should help with ideas:

Due to the triple and quad black the only other things I would consider for commanders are:

Daxos the Returned- interacts well with enchants

Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts- there is a cost for hurting you

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet- similar to anafenza

Horobi, Death's Wail- if nothing can live long enough to attack you will never exile

Razaketh, the Foulblooded- always tutor what you want

Stopping damage or reducing it seems rather important to me for this kind of deck, otherwise these cards will just work against you. take a look at the pillows I use in Divine Decree some of them should really help.

Ajani Steadfast emblem and Palisade Giant would be great ways to protect you from exiling a bunch of things. I really like the giant because some people run damage that can't be prevented and the giant redirects the damage.

I'm preparing a deck with Alesha and your's looks pretty much like what I have in mind.
You probably know already, but creatures that enter the battlefield attacking won't trigger "Whenever this attacks" type abilities, they must be declared attackers for that to happen. So if you bring Ankle Shanker or Tajic, Blade of the Legion with Alesha they won't do their thing that turn.

Do you want more deathtouch? Basilisk Collar to get access lifelink and Quietus Spike to force your oponents to feed creatures to Alesha.

I'm always trying to find a good deck to use Sunforger, this may be it.

These colors have bad card draw, Ghirapur Orrery would be good on this deck.

Retribution of the Meek and Slaughter the Strong are board wipes perfectly tailored for Alesha.

You could swap Palisade Giant for Protector of the Crown lower toughness but it gets you card via monarch, the deck is quite aggressive so getting the crown back shouldn't be a problem, or you can just animate him again.

Ravenous Chupacabra is Nekrataal without restrictions (and a much funnier name).

From your primer:
"Master of Cruelties + Strionic Resonator OR Illusionist's Bracers: For reducing multiple opponents to 1 health"

That doesn't work that way. Master of cruelties' ability doesn't have a target, it just affects the defending player, even if that player has hexproof or shroud. If you copy the ability it will still be affecting the defending player, you can't choose any other.
MoC's ability is a triggered ability and you won't be able to duplicate it with the Illusionist's bracers, they only work on activated abilities that are always written in the form "Cost: Effect."
In your deck Illusionist's Bracers would only be useful with Feldon of the Third Path (technically also work with Kytheon and Mirror entity, but copying their ability is redundant). I dont see the Bracers on your deck list so I guess you took them out already.
