Scytheclaw is awesome with Quietus Spike. You take 3/4th of an opponents life with the triggers from only one hit, not mentioning the damage your voltron dealt. You should also try Thalia's Lancers as you're playing many legendaries.

Scytheclaw as another spike effect?

Maybe sneak in a few living weapons like Scytheclaw, Batterskull, or Bonehoard.

I know you said budget, but the swords would obviously be a great include. Sword of Light and Shadow Sword of Fire and Ice Sword of Feast and Famine

Door of Destinies doesn't work with tokens. You could use Bad Moon instead. Also have you thought about Scytheclaw and if you wanted to play blue, you can play Grip of Phyresis.

usaDiabetic Hahaha honestly I really appreciate your interest in this deck so thank you very much and I really appreciate all the suggestions. That said Here's my opinionn on all options,Retreat to Emeria-- It's got some potential, def a maybeboard.

Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip-- Definitely would benefit from the token, but it would become a target the moment It's flipped. One of the main strategies I was thinking of when building this deck is trying to sit below the radar. I want my opponents to have to struggle to pick a target on my board until they withdraw they're moves or aim removal elsewhere in order to maintain value. In HIMYM, Ted dates so many girls in the series, there are only minor moments that hint at him finding the right one. In this deck, we don't want our opponent to know who our winner is until the last season. In order to do that we have to give him an abundance of information to speculate. For this reason, I've also avoided the use of cards like Scytheclaw and Batterskull, because the moment they become attached, we start giving our opponent a reason to look at our board. If we want our opponent to man up and target us we want to make him/her pull the trigger on a full boardwipe and hopefully let it hit the whole board. I'm also using this reason to exclude the following: Bonehoard, Cathedral of War, Duelist's Heritage, and to a lesser extent Citadel Siege (to get boardwide use is too slow).

Sublime Archangel is a lot better than the cathedral, but I doubt I'll get more than 1 turn out of it, plus we run into a similar issue of putting a lot of energy into a 1 turn move.

I like the idea of Pull from Eternity for sure

Rootborn Defenses is a strong possibility but Eyes in the Skies is too slow.

Archangel of Tithes would be a great pillowfort addition.

Given the space in the deck, I would rather choose Crested Sunmare over Wingmate Roc.

I agree with Day of the Dragons being too harmful since none of my tokens will come back. Unless I'm willing to trade my tokens for essentially other tokens I'm gonna count this one out.

I'm gonna put some thought into Soul Separator it has some weird potential.

Keeper of Keys is not bad but I have to make it all the way around the table before he becomes effective and that's a lot of turns for people to notice that I'm about to blow my load. Venser, the Sojourner is better imo but I just wonder if Im going to get more than 1 turn out of him.

Hour of Eternity is pretty good honestly, and so is Cathars' Crusade so I think they'll make their way in.

Saheeli's Artistry is not bad, it's a pretty high cost but if the artifacts are there then it might be worth it to toss one in for the match. I don't see enough value out of the cards in this deck alone to run it for copying my own stuff.

Back from the Brink will be more counterproductive than eternalize, but it may have potential for others. If I could create a Pull from Eternity and Isochron Scepter setup then there could be some huge value out of Back from the Brink

Murder Investigation depends on if I can fins more value vs the others in the deck since it's not a bad choice.

Lastly, I actually already looked at Foundry of the Consuls and felt like it just cost to much to take up another land spot.

Alright...buckle up this is going to be a doozy. Also, i'm going to apologize now for spamming your decklist, but I love the idea of this deck and want to build it myself...buuuut I have some ideas, and I want to see what you think.

First off, I think Pull from Eternity is a must to bring back eternalized and embalmed creatures.

I also like the idea of populate cards such as Rootborn Defenses and Eyes in the Skies.

I was wondering about all the life gain cards in your deck. If I were going to keep them, i'm thinking of Crested Sunmare

I would like to add Archangel of Tithes to go with your other pillow for cards, and as a great target for Followed Footsteps and Rite of Replication ... similar train of thought with Wingmate Roc

Day of the Dragons is an interesting card to me, but I could see it backfiring, so meh.

Thinking living weapons could be insane, mostly Scytheclaw but there are other great options like Batterskull and Bonehoard....another artifact I like, but might be too cute is Soul Separator.

For more unblockable redundancy Keeper of Keys and Venser, the Sojourner

I also like the exalted mechanic so throwing in Cathedral of War, Sublime Archangel and other exalted creatures could be good.

For more token redundancy I like Hour of Eternity, Back from the Brink, Murder Investigation, and Saheeli's Artistry.

I have a bunch of other ideas like Citadel Siege, Cathars' Crusade, Duelist's Heritage, Foundry of the Consuls, ect.

soooo yeah i think that's about it, or all i'm willing to type. Tell me what you think...well, if im not being completely annoying. Either way you made a sweet build, and I hope to make my own version soon!!

I really like it! i run an 8,5 deck too and I can tell I've found some nice pieces here! I definitely need to try Concerted Effort.

I find Scytheclaw very similar to Quietus Spike which I tested a while ago. Although its living weapon look great, it might be hard to cast it for . That's why I'd recommend Quietus Spike more.
