There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.

Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

ClockworkSwordfish on Weenies Who Smile At Death

If you want some late game punch, the trick with Alesha is to run creatures who are much bigger than their printed stats suggest! For instance, Arcbound Overseer, Clockwork Dragon, Sewer Nemesis and Ignition Team all have 0 power while they're in the graveyard, but much more when they come into play. It can almost feel dirty, but nothing beats the feeling of paying two mana to reanimate your Pentavus.

Other creatures worth considering include Garza's Assassin (you can kill a creature every turn!), Thought Gorger for the potential size and ability to discard other reanimation targets, Ravenous Baboons, Herald of Leshrac, Flayer of the Hatebound, Epochrasite, Clone Shell, Bone Shredder, Nighthowler, Murderous Redcap... plenty of nasty creatures that have good synergy with Alesha.

To protect your commander in combat, it might also be nice to have ways to give her deathtouch. Basilisk Collar is the classic, but note that Archetype of Finality can be brought back by her ability!

ShadowAblaze,okay so i pulled the other one, Emperor's Vanguard in a booster last night. any idea's on that one too? im not sure aboutPentavus either, i like the fact that he's a token producer that can combo with Primal Vigor.

Thanks for your suggestions patrikl. I considered Gate to the Afterlife when it was printed but never tried it; I'll give it a second look. Triskelion and Pentavus were in the original deck list and eventually removed for less expensive creatures. I still try to avoid infinite combos, and Nether Traitor adds very little to the deck on its own.

You know what could be amusingly powerful in this deck? God-Pharaoh's Gift.

Reanimating Pentavus as a hasty 9/9 would be fun.

Looks like your going for a kinda control and slight combo, idrk lol.

I think this can become an insane control Meren deck, adding kill spells stuff like Mindslicer and more, you can probably look up a deck list for control.

Maybe some more tutors, for sure Grave Pact that's a must if your running Dictate of Erebos maybe look at Nim Deathmantle it's more comboish but with grave pact and stuff is just stupid your maybeboard survival of fittest and phyrexian altar are broken.

Looks like it could be a really good control deck if you want to go that way, I'm not the best of saying exactly what cards you want to add but you can go crazy dick move and play Myojin of Night's Reach just be real controlling and don't let anyone play anything, then later game combo with mikaeus or Nim Deathmantle and some token generators Wurmcoil Engine gives lifelink Pentavus or Deranged Hermit would be a decent token generator.

Hopefully that helped a bit, thanks for taking a look at my deck, gonna rethink Protean Hulk could work really well, I'll get back to you. For adding a land either Path of Ancestry or Golgari Guildgate lol

Aladdin's Lamp and Colossus of Akros seem like good fits here. Some cards that always get into my artifact decks are Trading Post, Pentavus, Dreamstone Hedron, and Spine of Ish Sah. One card I severely underestimated at one time is Clock of Omens which has become an all star for my karn deck but with you has the potential to untap your commander for some ridiculous turns.
