Phyrexian Rebirth Discussion

Phyrexian Rebirth is in budget now. :)

Hey bem77! Thanks for commenting and the great suggestions!
Heroic Intervention and Secure the Wastes would be awesome in this deck! They're just not included right now by budget reasons. I look forward to adding them as soon as possible, although I do feel that I'd need to add more non-cat anthem's like Intangible Virtue or Coat of Arms, what do you think?
As of Song of Freyalise, I feel like the saga mechanic would draw too much attention at the table, especially because it would take forever to hit "lore counter III". It would be a splash play that would lead directly to a board wipe as soon as it hits the table. Have you played with it before? I might try it!

Another great anti-board wipe card you may consider is Heroic Intervention.
Another great way to help you go wide is Secure the Wastes.

I feel ya--it can be easy to go off the rails with deck building. You've got some good stuff to work with here, though, so if you don't mind some less-than-expert ideas, I'll throw a bunch of ideas your way.
I like your big finishers: Phyrexian Processor, Desolation Twin, the wurms (including Sandwurm Convergence), Giant Adephage, Trostani's Summoner. You're packing pretty much all the Populate spells--that's good. Let's protect that stuff with Heroic Intervention, Eerie Interlude, Cloudshift and--if you can justify the price tag--Teferi's Protection.
Hoofprints of the Stag works a little differently from Angelic Accord, but the result is functionally the same. Spawning Grounds is similar to Sandwurm Convergence, but let's you create the token before the end step (but also any end step) which will trigger Accord. Land aura, though, so you have to weigh that. But multiples of your tokens is always better than one, so if doublers are not too hard on your budget, you can't go wrong with those, either.
Eerie Interlude and Cloudshift can also be token doublers by giving you multiple ETBs from each Armada Wurm-style creature. If you go this route, Flickerwisp, Whitemane Lion, Jeskai Barricade, Eldrazi Displacer, Dust Elemental, even Roaring Primadox or Invasive Species will all help you get multiple ETBs. Other creatures that will benefit from this strategy include Hornet Queen, Regal Caracal, and Avenger of Zendikar. I've even used Fiend Hunter to "hide away" one of these (Trostani's Summoner is best) as wrath protection.
Herald of the Host and Nacatl War-Pride are both excellent Populate targets. Timing is everything, so you have to have mana and your Populater ready before the original tokens disappear. Loads of fun when you Second Harvest a board full of NWP tokens. :D
A couple wraths are good to have despite being a creature strategy: Martial Coup has the benefit of wrathing or not and creating some soldiers, while Phyrexian Rebirth gives you a huge threat that's definitely worth populating.
Best of luck!

Right off the bat it looks really good. All of the standard categories are covered. There are a few cards though that don't pull enough weight. I'm not sure Arctic Aven, Dawnfeather Eagle, Aven Fateshaper, Serra Aviary, Brave the Sands, and Always Watching do enough to keep around. Derevi gives all your creatures a psuedo- vigilance already. I would replace these with Judge's Familiar, Windbrisk Raptor, Mindshrieker, Aerie Mystics, and Kangee, Aerie Keeper. There are also good arguments to include Mirror Entity or Beastmaster Ascension for an easy win-con, Rout or Phyrexian Rebirth to wipe the board, and Basalt Monolith or Gilded Lotus to abuse Derevi Untap triggers. Rounding out the mana base with a Seaside Haven and the bounce lands will keep your hand full. Later upgrades I would consider adding would be Kruphix, God of Horizons and Reliquary Tower to max hand size and allow you to keep all of the extra mana Derevi enables.

Remove Elder Deep-Fiend for one of the 2 big leviathans or a huge draw card, you likely won't be using its emerge and for 8 mana you should have a win condition.
Stealing commanders is extremely good, hence Control Magic. Remove that threat and get a threat for the price of 4.
I'd run Sapphire Medallion over Expedition Map if you're looking for ramp. The medallion lets you keep 1 less mana open or those instants, and speeds up your game, and is better ramp in general when you don't have some crazy land like cabal coffers. You usually search for the bounce land with map, which isn't really speeding your curve up and only nets you 1 more mana per turn after its played compared to the medallion (in the worst case). Maybe searching for Soldevi Excavations would be worth it, but you aren't really using its scry ability when you get it in our games. Same goes for Felwar stone if you are fine with color fixing without it (And I think you are). If you're casting one spell per turn then they are equal. If you are casting more than one spell per turn, then they are not equal.
The boots are good in a creature focused deck, but you aren't running a creature focused deck and your commander (unlike before) isn't the crux of your deck. Run more artifact/enchantment removal or counterspells in place of them.
If you want a good blocker with flying, rather than the drake, run Fog Bank. This is the last time I'll mention that thing and I'll stop bugging you about it.
The biggest thing though.... what's your wincon? Before it was an 18/18 monstrosity of a land, but I don't really see anything now. You could steal wincons with things like Desertion, Spelljack, Gather Specimens, Control Magic and especially Rite of Replication, I think these would fit perfect in your deck.

Phyrexian Rebirth is also a nice boardwipe in Ephara.
