My favorite card is also my favorite character, planeswalker and creature. I prefer the creature version to the walker, but both are awesome - Venser, Shaper Savant is everything I want to do in Magic. His story is great and I am sad he is definitevely dead, but he did a bunch of cool things.

you should consider Unsubstantiate , Venser, Shaper Savant and maybe Delay , they might work well with exhaustion and knowledge pool. also Spell Queller could be a nice gotcha card.

crash328 on Remand: Good Counterspell in commander?

Sure. The "flicker tribal" is just cards with good etbs who benefit feom flickering like Grave Titan or Cloudblazer Venser, Shaper Savant is a pseudo counter/bounce spell on a body and Glen Elendra is a repeatable negate on a body

You can also use cards like Cloud of Faeries , Rhystic Study , Cavern Harpy , Dire Undercurrents , Venser, Shaper Savant , Baleful Strix , Aminatou, the Fateshifter , Felidar Guardian for some good stuff. Other than that I do see as your curve is a bit high.

Sorry About the Delay.

So far I have a few suggestions:

I hope that this wasn't too overwhelming. If you need any more help just let me know!

Hello @piratesthatpwn!

Thanks for your interest in the deck! Glad to hear that you’re enjoying it. Probably the easiest cut for Force is Foil, they occupy the same slot but force is easier to free cast. It isn’t unreasonable to run both, you may even consider just cutting Counterspell or Arcane Denial.

Mana Drain for sure cut Counterspell or Arcane Denial, just strict upgrade!

For Glen Elendra Archmage the cut is tougher, you could consider cutting Venser, Shaper Savant, or something utility wise like Shimmer Myr.

For Snapcaster I would either cut Archaeomancer orTorrential Gearhulk

@Polupus hey thanks for the interest in my deck! I love Kami although my brewing time has been spent elsewhere recently. I have made a few changes that I need to update the list on. By far my largest change has been adding Expropriate in that I pulled out of a different list.

I love all of your suggestions, and I also love how Kami can be built in so many ways and there are so many powerful cards! Metamorphic Alteration is an insane one - I love it and I’m going to find room to double up on Kami while also removing a commander. Pure beauty!

Kederekt Leviathan has always been on my short list. I tend to favor instant speed board wipes as they enable me to play draw go which is my preference. But honestly the card is so powerful it makes me want to break that rule whenever I consider him!

Nexus of Fate is 100% on my add list after it rotates out of standard. Just tailor made for this deck couldn’t agree more!

That last suggestion is a spicy one, wow! I dig it, I don’t know if I can find the cuts for it but I love finding out about awesome random combos like that so thanks for the suggestions!

so i was able to try the deck out one night... it was great and fun to play. a lot of different triggers, a lot of synergies and (what I did not expect) pretty heavy with tokens... every matche I played it my board was full of different tokens. even if they got destroyed, i was able to recover pretty fast. Cardadvantage was wonderful. I did not need a single tutor, cause I was able to fill my graveyard very fast.

After the first try out I was looking for some cards that could maybe fit into the deck (see Maybeboard).

Cards I think that did not bring that big of an impact: Birthing Pod - As mentioned, tutoring wasnt needed and I had a lot of tokens but not the curve to get the most of it via Pod ||| Corpse Connoisseur - same reason as Pod ||| Sidisi, Undead Vizier - the impact was not as big as expected. I realized it would be more important to put cards from my library into the graveyard, rather than to tutor a card into my hand ||| Eternal Witness - I need more cards to put cards from the graveyard directly onto the battlefield ||| Venser, Shaper Savant - much to situational...also to be mentioned that muldrotha is not able to abuse him that much, cause on the one hand the ability doesnt work on your opponents turn and on the other hand you want to cast impactful creatures from your yard on your turn

Cards that were the MVPs: Greater Good - esp. with tokens even a mass removal is not that bad cause you were able to put alot of cards into your graveyard. Huge Value engine ||| Turntimber Sower + Avenger of Zendikar - I made a lot of tokens... and very strong ones as well. Just add The Mending of Dominaria and/or Sylvan Safekeeper and/or Sidisi, Brood Tyrant for even more value... it was insane.
