One other card i just remembered that may be good for your deck, but will guarantee attention at the table but is very useful with your etb creature base would be Birthing Pod . Upgrading your creatures up a chain and getting the dead ones back with your commander

And if you take my advice and run worlds, lantern and sphere, then run Trophy Mage to tutor up any of the three

I say this because not only would he mesh with your commander like pb and chocolate, but because he turns your manabase into a draw engine if you have Crucible of Worlds another card i suggest, in play so when you crack those search lands, you can replay one from the gy and draw a card.

Also one creature i HIGHLY recommend for your deck as its a one card draw engine champ in this deck is River Kelpie . Seriously, the work that one card would do in this deck is nuts

For your mana base suggestions: Llanowar Wastes , Woodland Cemetery , Underground River , Drowned Catacomb , Yavimaya Coast are all affordable dual lands that should help out and are relatively cheap. Also Command Tower isn't expensive either and is the best land in our format. Also, Commander's Sphere and Chromatic Lantern wont set you back much. Also consider Prismatic Omen that card can turn a meh mana base into a efficient one once it hits the table

Pillowfort usually becomes a stax deck.i guess it depends on how angry you want the table to be at you lol

Dang Crystalline Crawler is super good... so many counter focused cards I didn't know about. I appreciate all the suggestions!

Bagel. Thank you for pointing those cards out! Especially the constrictor who i definitely need to add to the build somewhere

Just realized kresh HAS black mana symbol....need to get my eyes checked lol

Jaypay! Thank you so much for taking the time to help out and provide feedback. Admittedly i knew that the x costers were a problem when it came to gyrus's ability. I picked him mostly because he was the only Jund hydra who would give me access to black utility cards and the fact hes the only card i know of who gets stronger the higher the commander tax gets.But you make a valid point and perhaps Kresh is a better commander, and maybe i shoukd restructure the deck without black mana so that my commander benefits my deck more and vice versa. Ballista is a great idea and will definitely need to find a place for and maybe Hangarback Walker too. And i cant believe i forgot parallel lives

You can run Trophy Mage to get ahold of the altar or any other three drop artifacts

Heres my recommendation: Ashnod's Altar , Karmic Guide and Reveillark are a tested true combo that puts in solid work with aminatou for infinite loops. In my deck i also run the altar occasionally along with Eldrazi Displacer and Grave Titan or any creature who spawns two creature tokens as an etb since you can sac the two tokens to the altar to make 4 mana and use three on displacer's ability to flciker the creature to remake the tokens, resulting in one mana floating at the end of the exchange, essentially resulting in infinite colorless mana for a Torment of Hailfire or Exsanguinate finisher

Add Panharmonicon so felidar blinks two things per aminatou blink so you can basically untap EVERYTHING on your field, trigger infinite ETBs, infinite mana and anything else you can assemble

Terminal, ive been considering deepglow... My favorite win with my deck that didnt include the combo was having Eldrazi Displacer Ashnod's Altar and Grave Titan out simultaneously. Makes two tokens, sac tokens for four total colorless, blink titan make two tokens with one mana floating, repeat until infinite zombie hoard

I feel I should emphasize I'm not a staxshifter player, while the playstyle is powerful and effective, it isn't my playstyle and my group tends to steer away from them for the most part as they don't find it fun (apparently they ran off a grand arbiter player) I'm not a cEDH player, and I prefer the blink and top deck manipulation of aminatou over her stax potential
