Ulvenwald Mysteries Discussion

I really like Oketra's Monument in here. I would probably drop Fiery Emancipation (this may move too far away from your commander's activated ability being a primary strategy) and go with an anthem strategy overall as you acquire cards to slot in. Glorious Anthem, Gaea's Anthem, Dictate of Heliod, and, Beastmaster Ascension would all be solid in here. Other targets for removal for me would be Commander's Insignia and True Conviction. True Conviction can be great, but it seems a bit win more as opposed to just going wide and pumping through anthems. Beyond those, if you do lean into the anthem strategy, consider Mirari's Wake, Force of Virtue (can be a fun free play), Collective Blessing, and Spear of Heliod. You might even consider Intangible Virtue.
Have you considered Strionic Resonator to copy your commander's triggers?
Card draw seems light. Just some various options: Runic Armasaur, Mind's Eye, The Immortal Sun (anthem as well), Shamanic Revelation or Collective Unconscious, and, if you want to play in further on tokens, Ulvenwald Mysteries.
I agree on getting the token doublers in here and I also agree they are pricey :). A more budget option would be Second Harvest.
For win-cons, if you decide to switch to a Timmy approach, Craterhoof Behemoth is an obvious choice, and Thunderfoot Baloth would also fit nicely. With all your anthems (assuming you go that route), Humility would certainly be fun. Doesn't see much play, but a janky win con requiring setup is pairing Touch of the Eternal with enchantment destruction on the last end step before your turn, plus you usually want some protection in there. Like I said, a lot of setup :).

Sup Lhurgyof ya said to peep on over here and here I am!
Alright so I see that ya going for more of an aristocrat route with a side theme of some eggs. Hmm, I would actually forego the eggs route tbh and go straight aristocrats as it gives it more synergy than just tapping out for rocks that can net you more cards only if Korvold is out on the battlefield. Ya can do some cool things with eggs like Scrap Mastery + Krark-Clan Ironworks + Codex Shredder and do some funny shenanigans, but it kinda takes away from the theme but that's imo.
Now for the aristocrats that's more of my forte lol, here are some cards you can add in that can possibly help ya:
- Pitiless Plunderer
- Dockside Extortionist
- Viscera Seer
- Carrion Feeder
- Meren of Clan Nel Toth
- Altar of Dementia
- Eternal Witness
- Tireless Tracker
- Tendershoot Dryad
- Yawgmoth, Thran Physician
- Ulvenwald Mysteries
- Greater Good
There are a lot of things ya can do with aristocrat theme, but the ones I listed above are some suggestions that you can add in. Feel free to ask if ya want more help or anything!

Now that's the harder part haha. I feel like Silvar, Devourer of the Free doesn't do much here. Like, yeah he gets indestructible and can be a survivor after a board wipe, but he doesn't combo with anyone else and doesn't get tribal boost. Alesha, Who Smiles at Death too. Having looked at the list and made some sums, even with 52 creatures, she only works with maybe 20? And only 10 would you actually want to be attacking, the rest you'd want staying put and being passively effective. Not good odds to me. Ulvenwald Mysteries seems to be outclassed by several other draw engines, even with the added bonus of it making humans. If it didn't specify non-tokens, I'd give it a little more thought, but since you have to pay to draw a card anyway, I'd pass

You've ended up the same place as I do, when I get several ideas all at once and try to Jam them together. There are too many things built into one here - mill, aristocrats, tokens, Field of the Dead etc. It does a lot of things, but all of them poorly, as it lacks focus:
Altar of the Brood is a build-around. I've only seen it in OTK combo decks utilizing cards like Nettle Drone , Retraction Helix and 0-mana artifacts for an infinite combo which mills out in one big turn. Playing a deck out normally and just milling the opponent for a few cards a turn is simply too low impact. I actually think the infinite combo is possible in Pioneer, but haven't looked it up.
Field of the Dead is also sort of a build-around. Control decks make sure to drag the game out and get there, but most decks use cards like Hour of Promise and Elvish Rejuvenator (which you already have) to find the Fields and get them online quickly. Golgari Field decks are a good example of something that you could transition into from here.
I feel like your creature base could turn into an aristocrats deck that focuses on low-curve creatures with etb or on-death triggers. Then you can reanimate your whole GY with cards like Rally the Ancestors and Return to the Ranks for a big finish.
You rarely want to play more than 60 cards. Ghirapur Orrery , Authority of the Consuls , Dark Prophecy , Ulvenwald Mysteries , Second Harvest and Scheming Symmetry are all easily cut, no matter what direction you choose to go in.
TL;DR find out what you want your deck's focus to be, cut the cards that don't support it and find new ones that do.

Continuing with King Macar, the Gold-Cursed (Cursed King bros!), Magnifying Glass , Pitiless Plunderer , Prying Blade , Ruthless Knave , Tamiyo's Journal , Tireless Tracker , Ulvenwald Mysteries , and Vraska, Relic Seeker .

Rise of the Dark Realms . Nuff said.
It also seems like you could maybe use some fodder engines with unusual token types. Things like Faerie Artisans , Ulvenwald Mysteries note that it will trigger even if you sack the clue to an atog, Tireless Tracker same, Smothering Tithe , Dragon Broodmother , Whisperwood Elemental .
Sweet deck. Would love to try it someday.

Now just to preface this deck does not have to be standard legal, I just want to use this to play with my friends now into some suggestions. I was playtesting this deck and I noticed that I had a struggle with not getting the cards I need before I get all my lands, so I need some sort of card draw and Ulvenwald Mysteries just doesn't work. So I'm thinking let's take it out and replace it with another type of card draw. Bequeathal could be useful since I don't have that many creatures if one dies I get two cards heightening my chances of getting another creature, but this runs into the same problem that Ulvenwald Mysteries gives. I don't have that many creatures to begin with so this isn't a useful form of card draw. I came across the card Abundance which seems perfect, if I have too many lands then all I will have to do is play this card search for any non-land card and boom, then all the rest of the lands get sent to the bottom of my library. It seems perfect.
