In my opinion this deck has too many Artifacts or Enchantments for the amount of Creature it is running. Oftentimes in testing I had nothing to attach to Equipment that was on the field. It just sat there, doing nothing.

It is also missing some high value cards such as Thraben Inspector, Knight of the White Orchid, Selfless Spirit, and Declaration in Stone.

From experience (4 seasons of play) Ixalan's Binding is MUCH better than Banishing Light.

In a deck Always Watching is a must.

Has this deck played successfully in any tournaments? If so, I must be missing something.

Selfless Spirit and Thraben Inspector might be two handy additions.

Gisela, the Broken Blade is also VERY good. Once you cast her, aggro decks don't stand a chance. She's an early Angel too, so fits your theme. StuBi used her to great effect in his midrange deck.

Finally, Always Watching might be a good addition.

I really like this combo of Biomancer's Familiar plus Eldrazi Displacer but I have a couple of suggestions that might make the deck run a little smoother. First of a big issue with this color combination is that it is actually a 4 color deck without fetches that might be a tad tricky. And Yavimaya Coast gives us 3 of them so they are an instant 4 of. And to be honest that is really the only good land in the format for us.

For the creatures. I feel like there are a lot of powerful ones in there but there isn't enough synergy to justify the familiar or displacer. Let's fix that! A card I love for this deck is Incubation Druid the reason why is that it works incredibly well with both Biomancer's Familiar and Eldrazi Displacer . Like insanely well. First its adapt cost gets reduced by familiar second it can produce colorless mana if you have colorless lands for displacer to keep displacing. And if we add a third card into the loop Bounding Krasis we can go infinite. The nice thing about krasis is it does an ok impression of Reflector Mage when we need it to.

Also I still think we aren't getting enough value out of Biomancer's Familiar yet so the last card that should round out our synergy there is Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip. Insanely good on its own and allows us to dig through our entire deck if we go infinite.

At this point I would seriously consider going on a Collected Company plan over the Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Reality Smasher and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales because well we are trying to out value our opponent not run them over. The Matter Reshaper s are another good card on their own but not really doing too much for the synergy you are trying to go for.

For rounding out the rest of the deck I would consider some of the following cards Thraben Inspector , Charming Prince , Overwhelmed Apprentice , Renegade Rallier and last but not least Fblthp, the Lost .

Hope this was helpful!

Bottle Gnomes may only gain you life but they at least can sac themselves at no cost and count as historic for the purposes of triggering your commander's ability.

Felidar Cub gives a little more removal to recur.

Condemn is a bit conditional but at least an option for some instant speed removal that can deal with indestructible creatures.

Checked Card Kingdom and they have a fair number of printings of Sun Titan for under $3, the Commander 2019 version is listed at $1.99. Having a couple of things that are a little beefier wouldn't be a bad idea and it fits the theme of the deck.

Thraben Inspector ?

I second adding a anthem or two to be able to punch through if/when needed.

One other thought - have a think about three Thraben Inspector instead of Deathrite Shaman

Just about every deck in these colours play them.

They are useful to lock down Bomat Courier in the early game, which is also true for Deathrite Shaman , but they also give a chance for draw when needed.

Never underestimate a Creature that you don't care about losing as a chump blocker, either.

Funkydiscogod: ah, i see. I would play 4 poly and no Indomitable Creativity in a deck like this just to get that hexproof.. abbatromebone paying 3+1 for the ”token” would be better if your opponent has Lightning Bolt , Path to Exile , Fatal Push or any other removal in their hand. This combo cant go off if your opponent has removal, and there are plenty of removal in modern ;) Thraben Inspector was a brainfart, of course you cant play creatures :).

  • I like the lazotep PLating. Simic Keyrune is cmc3 for my token then i have to pay to make it a creature, then i have to cast polymorph. It also weakens Creativity which i do not like.
  • Thraben Inspector is a whiff card for both my win cons so i dont like it.
  • Another though i have had is to make it into a battle hymn sort of deck, where i use spells to to make goblins or something, then use battle him to have several targets for Indomitable Creativity making the deck slower but more resilliant, and could have a back up plan with tokens (or a banefire plan).

Simic Keyrune only works with Polymorph , and not Indomitable Creativity .

Not Thraben Inspector , because it's a creature, it can be revealed by either Polymorph or Indomitable Creativity , and you won't get Emrakul.
