Sawtooth Loon Discussion

Sawtooth Loon does exactly the same as Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain ; you bounce it back, draw two and put itself plus one card back, recast commander until you find Sawtooth Loon again, you net one card at this point. Repeat to draw your entire deck.

Can I ask why the include of Sawtooth Loon ? I get it cycles you through your deck but other than that what does it do? I figure I'm missing something there
Also in a previous comment you said that Jace, Wielder of Mysteries was to color intensive. Is it though when it's just another piece to the Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain combo when you're going off with Food Chain ?

Hi. Looks like I posted after you on Commander Deck Help. The thought police will get me if I don't post card recommendations on your deck.
- I'm not sure what Teferi, Temporal Archmage is doing here. Maybe it has some hidden purpose or broken combo I just don't see, but if that's not the case, I would cut that for Proteus Staff.
Scrolling through the comments, it seems like you want to avoid Felidar Guardian. I think this deck would make a great Eldrazi- Hey, wait, hear me out. Aminatou gives topdeck control. She can also blink things. Her ultimate is garbage. All in all, not bad. I think you could take a nice little polymorph route on this. I like free Eldrazi. You should too. Just look through these cards, and tell me what you think.
- Mass Polymorph
- Proteus Staff
- Riptide Shapeshifter
- Synthetic Destiny
- Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
- Emrakul, the Promised End
- Void Winnower
- It That Betrays
- Blightsteel Colossus
- Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
- Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre
...that would be your endgame. For the early and midgame:
- Noxious Gearhulk
- Meddling Mage, depending on your meta
- Champion of Wits
- Riverwise Augur
- Sawtooth Loon
- Bone Shredder
- Big Game Hunter
- Ravenous Chupacabra
- Lyev Skyknight
So, your gameplan would be to play Aminatou on T3, play creatures that kill things/draw cards when they enter, blink them with Aminatou repeatedly to kill opponent's things, draw into counterspells, and generally destroy their will to live. Once you have a comfortable lock, +1 Aminatou and put an eldrazi titan on top, polymorph a draw creature into it.

Firstly, I love the approach of the deck. Dovescape makes for the ultimate lock-down, so let's focus on that as your win-con and revolve the deck around it.
Don't be afraid to include non-creature spells because of this, remember, that your non-creature spells are just going to turn into doves late-game anyways; use this to your advantage.
I agree with most of musicalsocks's suggestions, however:
DO NOT RUN Kindred Discovery, IT WILL KILL YOU!
- Beastmaster Ascension and True Conviction will give you a huge advantage over your opponents in Dove Vs. Dove combat, if not, they will provide more doves for the Dove God.

Your approach is a little unconventional, but really interesting. However I would definatly take out Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, since he has no synergy with the deck. Guardians of Meletis,Traveler's Amulet and Sawtooth Loon are far to weak for commander.
Since Brago flickers your creatures, you could add some golem that have the typical "does not untap unless..." clause since the will reenter the battlefield untapped. Mage-Ring Responder and Altar Golem or Phyrexian Colossus are some of these. Also you should stick some staples like Path to Exile in your deck. Karn Liberated is not only sweet but technically also a golem!
+1 for the idea!
