Artifact Creature — Egg
Imprint - When Summoner's Egg enters the battlefield, you may remove a card in your hand from the game face down.
When Summoner's Egg is put into a graveyard from play, turn the imprinted face-down card face up. If that card is a creature card, put it into play under your control.

Summoner's Egg Discussion

Hi kamelyan, first of all thanks for the suggestions, I think both cards could really help me with the life gain so I'll include them when I increse my budget a bit :P. And about the Transcendence it can be really good when losing, and you could also combine it with the Summoner's Egg to kill an opponent, anyway, I'll think about replacing it for one of your suggestions.

I actually didn't know Bruna, the Fading Light's trigger was a cast trigger. That makes the card even better than I thought (I was planning on buying both pieces foil very soon even before knowing this)
I would very much like a list of the Faerie Artisan combo's that appear, the thought of them almost made me build the deck ;).

Hey skinken, thanks for taking the time to give some good feedback. Tutors are for sure the way to class up the deck, and I used to have a few more than I do now. I've done a bit of tuning since then to keep them to a minimum and really just add room for fun stuff. The tutors I've got are Wild Research, Ring of Three Wishes, and Expedition Map turns into Inventors' Fair. I'll be sure to add Gamble though probably in place of the Ring of Three Wishes because I think that's hilarious and even kinda sums up the deck.
I do agree that it's not always the best idea to have things in your deck that totally cancel other things. The Akroan Horse is pretty mediocre in general and might even be due for a cut, but the Desolation Giant is more of a circumstantial piece. Like if i throw him under a Summoner's Egg, or enchant him with a False Demise and give that away. Torpor Orb is an awesome card and certainly makes a lot of the deck function but I prefer my Hushwing Gryff to him instead since I can control when I want to block with it to get it off the board and do big stuff. Bruna, the Fading Light is actually a cast trigger instead of an ETB but if it wasn't I would totally agree that it's stupid, so thanks for having my back. I avtually Added her and gisela in because I recently broke down a deck that had them in it and I have a fair enough amount of card draw to hopefully make Brisela, Voice of Nightmares happen on occasion
The farie artisians thing is sick though, I'll add a list of dumb funny things that I've been able to pull off like that. I think you'll get a kick out of it.

You might want Lightning Greaves and maybe Hammer of Nazahn to protect Raff. I think you listed Talisman of Dominance instead of Talisman of Progress. Grand Arbiter Augustin IV seems helpful. Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle could be good to respond to some threats. Summoner's Egg can help cheat stuff in response to boardwipes. Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is really painful to flash in. Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Batterskull, Wurmcoil Engine, and Platinum Emperion could be good combat tricks. Lavinia of the Tenth can be a useful delay in these colors. Ephara, God of the Polis could be nice for card draw if you're flashing in creatures. Nezahal, Primal Tide could be a good replacement for Venser's Journal.

First, a couple suggestions for additions:
Delaying Shield can give you immunity to an attack, and then transfer damage to an opponent. You can even play table politics, have someone nova strike you, allow it to go unblocked, and then gift this prevented damage to a larger threat.
Illusions of Grandeur gives you 20 life. Once you transport it to an opponent, they must burn their mana, or sacrifice and lose 20 life. Delusions of Mediocrity is a worse version, that lacks built-in removal, but is a bit more budget friendly.
Summoner's Egg is a fun little card that provides a bit of mystery to your opponents. One option I have seen is using cards such as Leveler to imprint on the egg. Personally think this is a bit too complicated for a win condition (two cards + transfer + artifact removal + only deals with one player) in competitive play, but the game of Russian Roulette inherent with Summoner's Egg is quite enjoyable for more casual groups.
As for your comment on your forum thread about your running 118 cards and needing to cut some... I think you should start by taking a look at the lands you are running. You seem to have double-added a bunch of them. This should get you down around 100 again.

While I do like a lot of the combos & the cards you've packed into this deck, I think this deck still has quite a few weaknesses:
1) How do you deal with commander hate? i.e repeated destruction (aside from re-casting it and Sylvan). If you don't have Mazirek, I don't think this deck will go anywhere.
2) Still needs more tutors; your combos are great but I don't know how reliably you'll get them with Sidisi/Razaketh/Diabolic (did I miss something?). How about Protean Hulk, Defense of the Heart or Tooth and Nail? You could always tutor up a combo like Mycoloth + Sylvan Safekeeper or It That Betrays and Sheoldred. Though I know this deck likes it slow and steady, you could also go off on a chain such as Defense of the Heart / Tooth & Nail -> Protean Hulk + Sidisi/Razaketh, sacrifice Hulk -> tutor for Animate Dead (to recur Protean later), protean trigger to tutor any combo 6cmc, Animate Dead the protean, Sacrifice it, grab an Eternal Witness to get your Animate Dead back, rinse and repeat-> Razaketh/Tutor/Sac for Deathrender or Ashnod's Altar -> Razaketh/Tutor/Sac for any creature you want onto the battlefield, starting with token generators (Abhorrent Overlord or Hornet Queen, and sacrificing tokens for mana/tutor and cast all of your colorless artifacts. Akroma's Memorial and Craterhoof Behemoth = GG! It might cost you 20 life or so but it sure will be fun (for you)!
3) Weak to board wipes, takes awhile (unless you have good luck) to reach full potential. Things like bitterblossom just aren't as fun as cheating something like Abhorrent Overlord or Hornet Queen. Also try Living Death just in case someone wipes you.
I would also advise removing some of the weaker mana accelerators: Birds/Elvish Mystic/Deep Shadow and replace it with more....sac-related fodder because they feel pretty useless drawing it late-game.
Fun cards to consider: (Apologizes if already included)
It That Betrays, Pernicious Deed, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Akroma's Memorial, Spore Frog, Carrion Feeder, Volrath's Stronghold, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Hardened Scales, Walking Ballista, (control: Contamination, Bojuka Bog)
