Rzepkanut: It's not hyper competitive, and doesn't do much other than ramp in the first few turns. That being said, it's VICIOUS once it gets going, and plays enough countermagic to reasonably get to the late-game.

Not to mention that in testing, it's been EXTREMELY fun, haha. I get to do a bunch of really silly Timmy/Johnny things, and it often comes out of nowhere. I controlled 4 tokens and Brudiclad, then cast Karn, Scion of Urza and used his -2. Suddenly, once I moved to combat, I had six 7/7 Constructs, and swung for an immediate victory. This was on turn 5 (curving off of a Saheeli, the Gifted). It's a bit inconsistent and janky, but it does WORK. I'd highly recommend from my experiences so far!

I used to run a Trostani deck, actually! I really do miss the Populate for this deck, but in many ways my commander is a mass Populate every turn, plus makes tokens. It's really strange, and not many UR decks run like this. I love it. I will say that I'm nervous about not having enough mana to cast Desolation Twin, and all of my methods of cheating it don't cast, unfortunately.

In terms of necessary cards? Hmmmm. There are a few cards I'd describe as "musts": Arcane Artisan, Combat Celebrant, Faerie Artisans, Helm of the Host, Karn, Scion of Urza, Mimic Vat, Reef Worm, Saheeli, the Gifted, and Sharding Sphinx, maybe? But honestly, the only thing I'd say is a "must" is to have a good balance of cards that MAKE scary tokens, cards that make token copies of things, scary things to make copies OF, and cards that make a bunch of small tokens. That balance is tricky, and I'm still tweaking it ;)

TLDR, though, I'd highly recommend trying him at least. Some of the most fun I've had in years.

Thanks everyone for the comments! Individual replies below.

Crivaro: Cloudpost would be interesting if I can find a way to copy it.

SmashPortal: Helm of the Host would be good if I had more legendary creatures to copy, but for now the mana investment is too heavy since it's 9 mana for 1 token.

MST_Negates: Reef Worm is 4 CMC so usually not a turn 2 play, and is definitely one of the best options for resilience.

BolasFucks: Phyrexian Processor certainly can make a big token, but the life cost is risky and the tokens don't trample. Angrath's Marauders and Borderland Behemoth can frequently deal more than 40 damage for each token without having to pay life. Mechanized Production is a good alternate wincon and also a way to copy an artifact, but currently most of the things in this deck worth copying are nonartifact, and it needs to last through all my opponents' turns before I can win with eight artifacts of the same name.

Ben773: The myriad cards are decent but not the most powerful things to be doing. Crush of Tentacles removes all the tokens we have already made. Precursor Golem tokens are vulnerable to spot removal on the original. Gold-Forge Garrison 4/4 is not worth it. Copying the 5/1 tokens from Rite of the Raging Storm means they all get sacrificed at end of turn. Metallurgic Summonings is already in the deck. Infinite Reflection costs a lot of mana and only affects nontoken creatures. Mirror Mockery tokens can't be copied since they only appear after Brudiclad's trigger is over. Flameshadow Conjuring is a card I quite like from my other decks and might try out in this. Inferno Titan dealing 3 additional damage per token is quite little. I'm trying to include a few more card advantage options. I do have Pact of Negation and Spell Swindle as counters. I might also include Force of Will and Swan Song as low mana cost options.

Made extensive changes to this deck since my previous post a few weeks ago, and it's even more fun now with lots of different ways to win. Polymorph puts all creatures from your library into play to trigger Ally ETBs. Fiery Gambit lets you flip coins to burn opponents out or draw lots of cards and untap your lands. Polymorphous Rush adds a new dimension to the deck, comboing with Silverfur Partisan for an explosive number of Wolves, and creating unexpected synergies with cards already in the deck like Harabaz Druid and Reef Worm. Zulaport Cutthroat works great with and without Polymorphous Rush since the deck kills its own creatures.

Looking to include a few of the cards in the last section of the description like Graceful Reprieve, Reincarnation, Accelerate, Twinflame, Nivmagus Elemental, Jwari Shapeshifter, Chasm Skulker, Mitotic Slime, and Xenagos, the Reveler, so any suggestions for cuts would be great.

Oh and this isn’t a deck that wants to smash, but there are a few good defensive blue creatures that synergize with card draw, like Chasm Skulker and Psychosis Crawler. And Reef Worm, because.

Reef Worm is a hilarious addition. You can keep saccing and recurring it to end up with a ton of 9/9 Krakens and revel in all of the decks sac benefits.

lewj Yeah, I see what you mean about Meren and Reef Worm; Meren was only there because I copy-and-pasted my Meren list to make this, and Reef Worm because I've always wanted to stick it in a deck lol. Definitely agree with Altar of Dementia; the only reason it wasn't in here already was because I thought it was like $7 or $8 for some reason. I agree Boots and Greaves aren't at their best here, but I think protecting Muldrotha is key in this deck (same reason Siren Stormtamer is in here). If I can play and attack with a Grave Titan on the same turn, that's just upside. Your thoughts on Rampant Growth vs signets? Even with built-in recursion, land ramp seems so much better than artifact ramp.

Didn't notice the shuffle on mending lol... yeah its probs not the best then. I think Khalni Heart Expedition is almost strictly better than Rampant Growth in your deck, tbh I think I would also prefer Executioner's Capsule over Shriekmaw, I've always thought Reef Worm was meh in all but the most casual metas, this is also a deck where I'm not too fond of both Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves (although I have strong opinions against both of them in decks that really don't need them). Siren Stormtamer seems cute but kind of meh, and I'm not really into maindeck Meren of Clan Nel Toth, she seems just like a terrible Sheoldred, Whispering One in the main. Also I didn't mean going super all in on self-mill like with Traumatize but it seems like you actually have a fair amount of self-mill, but I still think you should find a spot for Altar of Dementia though, its been amazing in teneb just as a cheap artifact sack outlet with really nice upsides.

Thank you KINGofORESKOS! Yeah just finished the inital draft of the deck and have Reef Worm, Elder Deep-Fiend, and Great Whale in there. Draining Whelk and Inundate I hadn't thought of so thanks for the suggestions! This is only my initial draft up so any suggestions help.

Thanks as always for you help! Cheers
