Seance

Seance

Enchantment

At the beginning of each upkeep, you may exile target creature card from your graveyard. If you do, create a token that's a copy of that card except it's a Spirit in addition to its other types. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.

Here's a fun idea. Seance . You can populate the spirit token and have some graveyard shenanigans happening when trying to get those creatures back. God-Pharaoh's Gift may also be another interesting include. Ulvenwald Hydra for some land ramping and Blade of Selves , just because.

Not what to take out is a difference story. But a delightful set of ideas for you if you wanted to do a graveyard type shenanigans. Playing creatures that have no right to be tokens as tokens. Nothing like blowing a few items of interest with a terastodon twice in single combat step.

Seance or Feldon of the Third Path wont get me a 20/20 over two bodies with Desolation Twin as it when you cast it and not a ETB ability

Okay, let's give a few starters.. Adding Rienne seems to be not such a great choice. Your amount of multicoloured creatures is, aside from her, only 9... and you should remove Tahngarth, First Mate for sure, perhaps Emmara Tandris too, since the big tokens might nog necessarily care TOO much for not receiving damage, especially for 7 mana. So I'd take Rienne out.

Taking out Hate Mirage also doesn't seem like a great idea. You have the ability to copy your opponents creatures and at least smack people in the face with them. Imagine some of your opponents playing either giant legendary Eldrazi or powerful ETB creatures. The best part though is that, if non-legendary, you can populate those creatures you were only gonna have for a turn...and make the populated token stay. Populating the token does NOT copy the exile clause of Hate Mirage, or any other sortlike clauses on red copy spells. Turning powerful creatures this way into tokens is a surefire way of your opponents going "oh-ooh..".

Desolation Twin is a doubting case... yes it costs 10.. but you are in green for ramp and probably want something like a Mirari's Wake anyway.. so it might be a good card. Plus if you somehow mill or discard it, a Feldon of the Third Path or Seance (which might be a worthwhile inclusion as well) can suddenly get you 20/20 on the board divided over 2 bodies. And each time you populate, you give yourself an additional 20/20.

Your deck now contains a single boardwipe in the form of Hour of Reckoning . I'd include 1-2 more in. Yes, you are very heavy on creatures and you would like to keep your board... but if you ever find yourself against such a powerful board, maybe even multiple times in a game, and it's wipe or lose... a 1/99 chance to draw your only boardwipe won't cut it. So to stay in token theme though, I'd add your removed Phyrexian Rebirth and perhaps, thought they are tiny, Martial Coup will give you at least 5 1/1s after wiping the board. It's something.

For the rest:

  • Trostani's Judgement (exile and synergy with deck.. but too expensive for single target removal). Replace that with something like Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile . Yes you ramp/let your opponent live longer... but at the same time you make sure you don't die to something you want to get rid off, NOW, for only a single mana you might have had left over somehow.

  • Alot more, but this comment is probably already getting a bit too long...

You would have to kill the actual ghired to do that, but I think it would work. The original would still get the populate trigger even if dead. What's more juicy is if you keep the populated token it wouldn't die at the end of combat. That's why populate is amazing, the populated token wouldn't be recognized by the card that created the original. Sadly because all the ghired are already attacking you wouldn't get their when they attack trigger, but that would give you a sick populate target. This is why Seance and Mimic Vat are great with populate
