It's a shame you're not playing blue. See Beyond is a match made in heaven for Polymorph/Transmogrify.

0rc on Talrand - Nope!

Hi there. I also enjoy playing Talrand. Your deck looks like a great start. I’d recommend thinking about a primary win condition and let combat damage be your secondary condition. Many Talrand decks win through Polymorph type spells and effects. Others win through infinite mana/card draw plus laboratory-maniac type effects. If you’d like any help, let me know!

Apologies if this was addressed in the changelog, but have you tested the card Polymorph here, for added redundancy?

If you go the Atla Palani, Nest Tender route you could totally meme it up with only running 2 creatures: Worldspine Wurm, Xenagos, God of Revels. That way you always swing in for 30 tample damage each turn with Xenagos's buff. It's actually pretty powerful if you run enough protection. Heck, you could probably just skip Atla all together and run Xenagos as your commander. Red has a surprising number of Polymorph effects these days.

Leviathan tribal. Neat.

Blue has a few cute options for cheating stuff into play - and a 'show and tell' style modern deck sounds fun. AEtherplasm offers a more casual trick. Blessed Reincarnation and Polymorph are traditional. Braids, Conjurer Adept is modern legal.Deathrender is usually better in combos, but functions. Flood of Tears and Fold into AEther are cute if awkward. Quicksilver Amulet is a classic, as is Summoner's Egg. Thran Temporal Gateway can do an impression of quicksilver, but is more restricitve.

Good luck with the brew!

lagotripha on Fact or Fiction deck Idea ...

It is worth glancing at the old Mystical Teachings lists for ideas, as it is a similar spell which likes instant speed and minor graveyard synergy.

Between gifts, fof, and mystical you have an incredible set of four mana card advantage tools, which is great for decks that want to trade and go long- so control and combo lists.

The lack of snappy will be awkward for control, but Mission Briefing can work. The big thing with avoiding snappy is that you can't just copy the deck, you need to make lacking that creature worth it; Polymorph combo or similar card type matters effects to give you an edge that more expensive decks would have to 'give up their best cards' for.

Just keep your playgroup in mind and try to maintain interaction on both sides of the table. Landing an unexpected Night of Souls' Betrayal great, or zero fun at all.

@9-lives

To be honest, I don't have any Pioneer experience, but instead a lot of Modern experience. Having brewed my fair share of Polymorph/Indomitable Creativity decks, I can assure you that Jalira is not worth it. Why? You'll just end up having bad luck and revealing more copies of her when you use her effect. Your best bet imho is Aetherworks Marvel. This strategy, otherwise, is quite sketchy in Pioneer, because it lacks the noncreature ramp support. Maybe splash black for reanimation. A basic rule of deckbuilding would require you to have at least 8 enabler cards if you're playing combo. I honor your effort, but what you're trying to do is just inherently difficult, especially in Pioneer.
