Puppeteer Clique

Creature — Faerie Wizard

Flying

When Puppeteer Clique enters the battlefield, put target creature card from an opponent's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control. It gains haste. At the beginning of your next end step, exile it.

Persist (When this creature dies, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

I think you need an Eternal Scourge for this deck.

AH HA! I finally see figured out what this deck is really needing. More punch.
Specifically, this deck should be maximizing the 'creature enters the battlefield' effects.
You are creature one or more token copies of a creature.
Those creatures should not just sit there looking at you like an idiot. Make those token work.
I know that the token come into play tapped and attacking, but by using the ETB triggers those tokens will be doing double duty.
Another thing I noticed while looking at what other people are doing with this deck is the use of +1/+1 counters to power things.
Not sure if that is a direction this deck need to go, so I'm not going to use that too much.
With that new idea in mind, lets look at some swaps.
OUT: Budoka Gardener, Charnelhoard Wurm, Emissary of Grudges, Indulgent Tormentor, Rubblehulk, Scute Mob, Scuttling Doom Engine, Seedborn Muse, Zendikar Incarnate
Not sure about: Loyal Apprentice, Loyal Guardian, Loyal Subordinate, Rampaging Baloths

IN, with no particualr order:
(I'm going to list more cards than we take out so that you have some options to consider.)
Wood Elves, note that the Forest does not have to be a basic Forest. We can fecth a dual or shock land.
Eternal Witness, to get back any other card.
Greenwarden of Murasa, another option for card recursion.
Solemn Simulacrum, land fetch and card draw ine one.
Broodmate Dragon, because dragons.
Garna, the Bloodflame, for more graveyard recursion.
Fleshbag Marauder and/or, Merciless Executioner to help control the board. We can use the sac
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, fattie with life draining ability.
Mindslicer, so that we can make people's lives suck.
Pilgrim's Eye, land search and flying chump blocker. the poor man's Solemn Simulacrum
Hoarding Dragon, because it never hurts to get useful artifacts.
Netherborn Phalanx, this one has always been good to me in group games. Really punishes the token player.
Puppeteer Clique, so that we can eat and exile opponenet's creatures.
Dire Fleet Daredevil, why not cast other people's spells?
Balustrade Spy, screw your deck.
Avalanche Riders, screw your land.
Sadistic Hypnotist, screw your hand.
Entomber Exarch, give us some nice options. It is a bit weak, but useful and cheap.
Bogardan Hellkite, becuase damage is almost always good. But I'm not sure about the mana cost on this one.
Molten Primordial, let's use our sacrifice outlets on other peoples stuff.
Viscera Seer, so that we can filter the top deck when we sacrifice creatures.
Hornet Queen, tokens making tokens, now with deathtouch.
Feldon of the Third Path, create tokens of creatures that don't get exiled.
Kresh the Bloodbraided or Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper as alternate commanders and good creatures.

Not creatues but need to be in the deck:
Warstorm Surge, let's turn each token into direct damage in addition to it's ETB.
Path of Discovery, why not explore the deck?
Evolutionary Leap, I'm not sure about this one, I like the ability to fetch more creatues from the deck, but we may need more dicard outlets to really make this work for use.
Goblin Bombardment, cheap to cast, multiple uses, may help finish off the last opponent.

So, let me know what you think.
Great. Thanks. Now after helping you with this deck, I'm going to have to finish my jund deck. I'll see if I can get my list up in a couple of days.

I second the Puppeteer Clique and Cauldron of Souls adds.

Looks at the deck again, I also think it really needs some board wipes.

I second all Pat's comments except I really do like Rend Flesh. I like it better than Bone Splinters. You have a lot of sac outlets and the sorcery speed is a real drawback.

Have you considered Trading Post, Geralf's Messenger, Puppeteer Clique, Cauldron of Souls? I really like undying/persist in this deck. There is also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, but price is a factor with him.

A couple things I don't like: Pitiless Plunderer, Cryptbreaker

Sakashima the Impostor is $20. You may WANT it but you don't NEED it. Skeletal Changeling is a ninja and chump blocker with regenerate. I like that one.

There are several cheap enchantments to make a ninja unblockable after you get the first ninjitsu onto the board. Aqueous Form, Writ of Passage and Aether Tunnel are the cheapest. Flitterstep Eidolon can attack, ninjitsu then recast as bestow. Lots of mana but really flexible.

If you are married to the faerie theme try Knacksaw Clique or Puppeteer Clique for ETB, fly in, ninjitsu, recast for ETB all over. Bitterblossom provides chump blockers and fliers to ninjitsu off of. (Bitterblossom is expensive as heck though).

The biggest change i had to make to my deck after the first draft was Reliquary Tower, Thought Vessel, Library of Leng and anything to let me hold onto cards instead of discarding down to 7.

dbpunk on Infinite mana in Grenzo

Ok this is a weird combo but...

Metallic Mimic+Murderous Redcap+Ashnod's Altar/Phyrexian Altar

You cast or put Metallic Mimic into play naming Goblins or Assassins (probably preferably Goblins for your commander's sake) and then put Murderous Redcap into play. Using either artifact, you can sacrifice the redcap and it re-enters with a -1/-1 counter, which is negated thanks to the +1/+1 counter that comes from Metallic Mimic. You can then sacrifice Murderous Redcap any number of times to produce enough mana, since whenever it would enter play with a -1/-1 counter, that counter is automatically negated.

The bonus to this combo is that it essentially becomes an infinite damage (thanks to Murderous Redcap's ability), infinite creature entering play and infinite creature dying combo as well.

The combo also works with any persist creature you may have if you choose to name a different creature type (for example, I use a similar combo with Puppeteer Clique and Bloodspore Thrinax in my Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire deck.

Whoops, on second thought, looks like Braids, Cabal Minion is banned in Commander. I do play casual but our house rule is no banned cards. Looks like I found who to replace with Puppeteer Clique!

Holy crap, Braids, Cabal Minion is PERFECT for this deck. Can't believe I forgot about her. Also, I've replaced Sprouting Thrinax with Mitotic Slime because I feel I'll get more bang for my buck without a terribly steep mana cost. I decided to add Praetor's Counsel as well, since I'll probably wind up having a fairly beefy graveyard without too much effort. I really like the thought of Puppeteer Clique as well (getting a useful swing or ability with one of their own creatures, then sacrificing it for further screwiness), but I'm just not sure whom I could stand to take out to make room for him. Thanks for the help! I simply can't wait to pull these shenanigans out on my roommates.
