Wow thanks, that's given me a lot to think about! I really like the cards you've mentioned, especially Summoner's Egg.

Well i've always found zedruu to be very mana hungry and have had success with things that give themselves away for free. Things like Witch Hunt or Jinxed Choker have been pretty fun and I think they would go well in the deck your building since it looks like somewhat of a pillow-fort deck. I haven't really liked bronze bombshell since it's usually 7 mana for 7 damage. Form of the Dragon and Transcendence are game ending bombs to drop on people but it's really hard to be able to dodge them yourself. I have a Mana Flare and Smothering Tithe in mine to be able to have enough mana but the mana flare can and does backfire at times. Summoner's Egg is a pretty good way of getting a creature out of your hand and ready to donate, plus you don't have to deal with the downside of the creature, or you can pretend something bad is under it to cheat out other creatures like your Agent of Treachery

Kogarashi on What happens when an egg ...

Also important to note: the triggered ability is part of Atla Palani, not the egg tokens she makes, which is why nothing happens if Atla Palani is not on the battlefield when the eggs die.

Related to this, it doesn't have to be one of Atla Palani's egg tokens necessarily in order to trigger her ability; any creature with the type "Egg" will trigger it. At the moment, this includes Dragon Egg, Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip, Mysterious Egg, Roc Egg, Rukh Egg, Summoner's Egg, and Chicken Egg if playing with Un-set cards, as well as anything with "all creature types" like the various Changelings and Mistform Ultimus. (Not all of the listed cards show "Egg" on the type line, but the Oracle text in the Gatherer includes it.)

Leviathan tribal. Neat.

Blue has a few cute options for cheating stuff into play - and a 'show and tell' style modern deck sounds fun. AEtherplasm offers a more casual trick. Blessed Reincarnation and Polymorph are traditional. Braids, Conjurer Adept is modern legal.Deathrender is usually better in combos, but functions. Flood of Tears and Fold into AEther are cute if awkward. Quicksilver Amulet is a classic, as is Summoner's Egg. Thran Temporal Gateway can do an impression of quicksilver, but is more restricitve.

Good luck with the brew!

I've got to say, I really love this deck idea. Pulling 19 random creatures and putting them into the deck makes for a truly unique and fun experience each and every game. I love the way this whole deck looks and sounds. I do have few things for you to consider, though. One, maybe a bit more ramp could help you out, and using a card like Tempt with Discovery can both help you out immensely and make the game interesting. Two, while a lot of those extra creatures are cool, another funny one you could consider adding is Autochthon Wurm, which is pretty funny as a 9/14 trample. Wurmcoil Engine is also a very scary card, and will certainly add some excitement if he pops out. Finally, what if you have one of your big creatures in hand, and can't cheat in with Atla? Well, Summoner's Egg could really help you out in this situation, still allowing you to cheat in something absurd.

Other than those few things, and even if you don't consider these, your deck looks really nice, and sounds like a fun, chaotic deck, where you never know what's gonna happen. I love this! Good job, and I hope these suggestions helped!

The controller of Summoner's Egg can not look at the exiled card. So, your opponent will not be able to look at it. This is confirmed by the first gatherer ruling.

"The card is imprinted face down. This means that other players don’t know what the card is and you can’t look at the card once it’s imprinted (until it’s turned face up, of course). Note that effects that exile cards, including all previous imprint cards, exile those cards face up unless the effect says otherwise."

the "skip two turns" ability is an ETB and Eater of Days is entering the battlefield under your opponent's control. They will skip their next two turns after it enters.

If I cast Summoner's Egg and imprint Eater of Days facedown. Let's then say my opponent casts a spell and gains control of Summoner's Egg. Is my opponent allowed to look at the imprinted face down card?

If I cast Oxidize to destroy the Summoner's Egg, will my opponent lose 2 turns?
