Village Bell-Ringer Discussion
1 week ago
In my oppinion, if you wish to increase the token focus, I'd cut the following cards: Collector Ouphe, Felidar Guardian, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Village Bell-Ringer, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Birthing Pod, Red Elemental Blast, evtl. Fauna Shaman
=> Remainders of the Kiki-Combo Package and anti-Control
I'd add the following cards

You might want to mess around with Banewhip Punisher as you can destroy a creature every turn with it. It’s better than Ravenous Chupacabra as you don’t need a sac-outlet to keep re-using it from the grave and you can get some pretty good value abusing it with Sun Titan. Another positive to reanimating spot removal through Alesha is counter spells can’t interact against it. If you have problems against tokens/mana-dorks I greatly recommend Necroplasm instead. Most Alesha decks don’t run the Necroplasm because a lot of them often produce a lot of creature tokens themselves, but your deck is pretty light on that theme.
It seems you are running only one infinite combo. If either Kiki-Jiki or Village Bell-Ringer gets exiled you’ll have to win through sheer combat strength. If you want to increase the consistency and durability of this combo I recommend using Felidar Guardian as your Village Bell-Ringer back-up because it too can go infinite with Kiki-Jiki. Felidar Guardian also goes infinite with Molten Echoes naming “cat” as you can always have the haste cat token blink the original Felidar Guardian which then will re-trigger the Molten Echoes. Molten Echoes in this case being your Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker back-up. If you find Molten Echoes too narrow you can run Flameshadow Conjuring instead as the process is practically the same except every time the original Felidar Guardian enters the battlefield you must use its ETB to blink a red mana producing land to effectively untap it so you can keep paying Flameshadow Conjuring’s cost. This second combo can also bypasses your Cursed Totem which turns off your Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker’s ability.
There is a catch however. If Felidar Guardian ends up in your graveyard and you want to win using it and either four-cost red enchantment, reanimating the Felidar Guardian through Alesha will instead waste up your combat step which means you can still create infinite haste tokens, but they won’t stick around for the next time you get another combat step to attack on. If you find yourself needing to salvage this combo you’ll need to cast a reanimation spell like Karmic Guide before your combat step. In this case I recommend adding Animate Dead and/or Necromancy to your deck as these will work as well and are much cheaper to hard-cast. Even without the Felidar-version of the combo either of the black reanimation spells are still beneficial as you can get back your larger stuff like Sun Titan or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and you can always use your Hall of Heliod's Generosity to recur the black enchantments for further re-use which can make them valuable if your Karmic Guide ever gets exiled. You can also use them to pull stuff out of your opponent’s graveyards unlike Karmic Guide as well. They even make recurring your Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo better as recurring him with your commander means having him sit on the battlefield for a whole turn cycle before you can go off while hoping none of your opponents draw any removal or worse, winning the game before you do. Having more flexible ways to reanimate creatures before the combat step can mean a huge difference when your goal is to win on your combat step.

Contract from Below (ummm... what?? this is too strong and the ante doesnt exist to balance it)
Ichorclaw Myr (colorless infect)
Sun Titan (probably fine)
Porcelain Legionnaire (cheap first strike, hard to kill in reasonable time without using removal spell on a 2 drop)
Winds of Abandon game ending 1 sided wrath (probably just too strong)
Mana Tithe fine card, but not sure why white has counter spells
Peregrine Drake probably fine, but just worth watching for overly easy infinites
Etherium Sculptor potentially too many artifact synergy cards like this in the cube (artifacts might be one of the most well supported archetypes)
Brain Freeze (not really supported?)
Snap again potential infinite mana
Feldon of the Third Path potentially degenerate?
Flameshadow Conjuring (goes infinite with multiple creatures with an iron myr)
Golgari Grave-Troll maybe fine
Sprout Swarm (I've seen this card be silly, but its probably fine)

Midnight Guard does not create an infinite combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. Midnight Guard only untaps himself not Kiki-Jiki, so at most you could only produce one token off of him. Instead of Midnight Guard I'd recommend replacing him with Village Bell-Ringer which will always untap Kiki-Jiki whenever you make a copy of him.
If on the other hand you want to make an infinite combo with Midnight Guard, you would need to enchant him with Splinter Twin or Elemental Mastery as the haste token he would produce would untap him and allow him to use his ability again repeatedly. This combo would also work with Sunstrike Legionnaire as it has the same untap text in case you want to run a second Midnight Guard.

You have Aurelia, the Warleader so including Helm of the Host for unlimited combat steps seems good, Godo, Bandit Warlord in for the same effect, he can fetch the Helm and if your Commander is out he doesnt take damage, so you end up with unlimited Godos and unlimited combats. I also include a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker line with Village Bell-Ringer and Zealous Conscripts since they also win outright, but can still be useful draws. I like Silverwing Squadron to populate the field and I also like Fires of Invention and Conduit of Ruin more than mana rocks. Probably Winds of Abandon over Swords to Plowshares since you are teying to win with combat. I like this commander a lot and your deck has some cards that I think are upgrades to some of the cmc slots I have assigned in mine. I find that Iroas falls behind sometimes and including combo lines improves viability against archetypes that have an edge.

Chances are if you're playing Selvala, you're going to end up having a bunch of elves in your deck anyway. I would recommend Elvish Archdruid/Priest of Titania/Wirewood Channeler + Sword of the Paruns/Umbral Mantle/Staff of Domination. From there, you can use Selvala to draw your deck a whole bunch and then use Green Sun's Zenith which is just good in the list to begin with) to keep failing to find and re-shuffling itself into the deck. This way you can keep drawing indefinitely while your oppoenents all deck themselves.
I would also recommend Yisan, the Wanderer Bard since he already fits into an untap deck and provides really good incremental value. You can also use him to assemble Avacyn's Pilgrim/Bird of Paradise + Priest of Titania + Village Bell-Ringer + Temur Sabertooth very quickly.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker makes a copy of Felidar Guardian. When that copy enters the battlefield, it triggers, targeting Kiki-Jiki, flickering it. You can then repeat this loop infinitely, creating enough Felidar Guardians with haste to kill all of your opponents with one combat swing.
The easiest way to assemble this is by using Birthing Pod (hence the archetype name, Pod. The "Blood" part of Blood Pod comes from Blood Moon, or in this case Magus of the Moon, commonly played with Pod). With any 3-cmc creature in play (conveniently, Marath is such a creature) and 3 mana available, you begin the chain by:
Sacrifice the 3-cmc creature to Birthing Pod. Search for Felidar Guardian, flicker Birthing Pod with Guardian to have it return to play untapped.
Sacrifice Guardian to Pod to search up Karmic Guide. When Guide enters the battlefield. Have it target Guardian in the graveyard to return it to the battlefield. Flicker the Pod again to reset it.
Sacrifice Guardian again to search up Kiki-Jiki. Use Kiki-Jiki to copy Karmic Guide, returning Guardian to the battlefield.
Flicker Kiki-Jiki to begin the infinite Guardian loop and win!
A similar line can be performed with Survival of the Fittest. Discard any creature to chain-discard through Guardian, Kiki-Jiki, and optionally Village Bell-Ringer (who also goes infinite with Kiki-Jiki), until you have them all in your graveyard and Karmic Guide in hand. Cast Karmic Guide, return Kiki-Jiki, copy Guide, return Guardian, reset Kiki-Jiki, go infinite.
Splinter Twin is used on Village Bell Ringer as an alternate infinite combo, as each copy untaps the enchanted Bell Ringer, making infinite copies with haste. This can be tutored directly into play with Academy Rector.
