I really like how there is now a white equivalent of Morphling, Torchling, and Thornling: brightling. Hopefully, there shall eventually be a black equivalent, to complete the cycle.

With the printing of arena rector, a reference to Academy Rector, will there eventually be equivalents that search for artifacts, creatures, and lands?

How is fan favorite black? Black is the least cooperative and most selfish of all the colors, so I believe that it should be either red, white, or green, the colors of community and cooperation.

CivilizedSin, I use Torchling as a replacement for Morphling (reserved cards sometimes are impossible to find), but it's weaker in so many situations. And I won't run both, it's just an overkill. I also used Avatar of Woe, but I've found it to be on a weaker side of tap abilities. I'd rather tap to draw 3 with Arcanis the Omnipotent. So I prefer Galecaster Colossus as a removal of choice, because it deals with almost any permanent, doesn't need haste and can tap some other wizard (wich I have plenty of) for activation. The deck is a blast indeed, my favourite commander of all time by far! :)

Any thoughts on including Torchling or Avatar of Woe?
All in all though, I love the deck- it looks like an absolute blast to play!

Thanks for the love! And I have not, but definitely intend to now! Seems like it would blast with Torchling as well!

I'm on the fence about Soul of New Phyrexia, but I do have Cauldron of Souls which fills mostly the same role, so I might cut it after all.

I am willing to cut Elvish Aberration, especially now that I realized that Umbral Mantle + Viridian Joiner was a combo.

I still have mixed feelings about Sylvan Scrying. I started out with more land enchantment than is sane, and I originally intended to keep it in specifically to pull Darksteel Citadel to enchant. But I guess that I am likely better off switching it out for Cultivate like everyone else does.

Fatestitcher vs Kiora's Follower is the exact kind of match-up that I agonized over. As I read it, I thought their tap abilities were more or less equivalent, Stitcher can tap things but that doesn't matter. I erred on the side of Stitcher for his unearth ability in case something happened and an I wanted him back, but maybe that isn't worth it. Maybe Kiora's Follower is better after...

I didn't have any plans for Ashnod's Altar, so you're right. I kept it as a sac outlet 'just in case', but I'm not running any Theros gods that can switch their creature status on and off, so I admit it serves even less of a role in the deck. I'm still hesitant to cut it for purely subjective reasons. All I needed was some outside confirmation to cut Aquastrand Spider, thank you. I feel vulnerable to flyers, but I guess there are more clever ways of dealing with them.

Actually, I have Hua Tuo, Honored Physician in just because he can repeat his ability, instead of just a single-use sorcery. I didn't actually think about interactions with Kraj. Agh, you say he's bad? I was keeping him in in place of something with a costly cmc like Praetor's Counsel or just a single-use spell like Regrowth or Nature's Spiral? Am I better off with one of those?

I'm reluctant to cut Plasm Capture because of ""flavor"", but the whole point of having Spell Swindle is to be a better version of it.

I'll get Cyclonic Rift later, but I thought Capsize works as a single-target bounce for now. Morphling is pricey, and a tangent thought is that Torchling is part of my potential justification for a temur colored pseudo Kraj deck in the future. I have Inspiring Call on hand, I'll put it in. I'm an idiot and for some reason assumed that Scavenging Ooze had to exile a card from your own graveyard. Oops. I'll add him to my to-do list.

Great deck...maybe include Prophetic Flamespeaker and Torchling for added value if you can squeeze them in!
