What are your thoughts on Uncage the Menagerie? It has always been a good draw.

It's funny you mention Rhonas the Indomitable because I was actually going to add him today anyways. I like Uncage the Menagerie, I'll have to test it out but I'm not really sure what it'll replace for now.

Been play testing a deck very similar to this one. camarouge already commented on my page. Uncage the Menagerie has been doing some work for me. I have found that it helps fill the lack of card draw I so desperately desire. Rhonas the Indomitable has also been a great bomb for me. As for Skysovereign, Consul Flagship I really want to work it into the deck, but am finding it hard to make space.

+1 for sure!

Check out my deck if you haven't seen it yet.

Instead of Defiant Greatmaw you can check in to using Empyreal Voyager. I feel it's such a critically underplayed card and it can gain you a ton of energy, especially if you pump it up. It fits the color scheme and it's definitely something you opponent will have to remove or it will kick some ass.

Channeler Initiate would also work well here as a form of ramping you in to Bristling Hydra on turn 3 which is bad for your opponent.

I could also see Uncage the Menagerie possibly working here as some fun jank if you cast it for X = 3, as you can get Empyreal Voyager, Rogue Refiner, and Rhonas the Indomitable out at the same time.

If you're not trying to make this deck super competitive, play with some jank! Reason / Believe could be fun, you can try using Champion of Wits for some extra card draw early and late game. Nimble Obstructionist can get you another flying creature or it acts just like Disallow does. Fabrication Module can pair nicely with some of your creatures. Confiscation Coup can literally snatch an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger from your opponent. There's a ton you can play with, so have fun with it!

I had another thought right after my comment too, lol. How about adding in Uncage the Menagerie? This deck has an abundance of two and three drops, so casting it for X=2 or X=3 seems pretty profitable to me.

Have you thought about Tenacious Hunter? That way Uncage the Menagerie can grab a Hunter plus a Crocodile of the Crossing.

dommes89: Thank you for the suggestions. I like each of those cards and I do own Mirage Mirror. I'm still looking to place it effectively in the deck. As for the other cards:

Overwhelming Splendor: It is a bomb-shell at 8 mana. I'm just not sure if I wish to be any more of a target than I usually am.

Uncage the Menagerie: one of the stronger cards for EDH. Nonetheless, if it had stated, "or less", I'd probably be more inclined to include it.

Solemnity: a great card that only effects 3 cards within my deck. It will be in the maybeboard.

Crook of Condemnation: graveyard hate is always welcomed. It's alittle slow for me though.

Mirage Mirror: I love this card. It has SO MUCH POTENTIAL! My only issue is the fact that it costs 3, which is a very filled slot for me currently. It will be in my maybeboard.

Hour of Revelation: can be a powerful board wipe with a great way to cheapen its cost. My worry is its WWW cost.

Ramunap Excavator: strong card that can be powerful with fetch lands and land destruction cards. My issue once again is its 3CMC cost.

Samut, the Tested: an ok walker that has a very strong ult. I find her hard to protect overall and a walker that only seems to have a good ult.

Thank you for all the suggestions!

@woodgateski The Umbral mantle and selvala combo is excellent! Especially since I may not need all of five of my combo pieces (If I have a monstrous X creature or an X cost in my hand). However, Eldritch evolution is somewhat a downgrade of Uncage the Menagerie. Paying seven for uncage gets me four creatures, including Kuldotha Forgemaster who can put artifacts onto the battlefield from my library. As for Rhonas, I already have Akroma's Memorial Which I can grab with Kuldotha. I'll try making space for the other two though.
