Said on Nice in the ......

This looks pretty tight. I think their's a lot going on though. My initial thoughts on Kels are that she's not exactly a front line commander. She's not the star player of the deck, but gives you a good back up plan for what your decks is trying to do and I think this is mostly because she requires a mana investment to start the engine.

I took a look at few of the cards and they seam a little broad. There might be some options you can cut or replace.

Mortus Strider might be a good include and please don't you dare forget about Bastion of Remembrance.

I would cut Grave Pact for Dictate of Erebos.

Since Kels gives you access to blue, it might be nice to lean into a mill strategy, (there's a lot of support for mill being printed rn) and supplement your board with graveyard recursion.

A thought I had was cutting Metallurgic Summonings for Consuming Aberration. Sepulchral Primordial into a Consuming Aberration is the Dimir Drama your dark heart has been looking for bby.

A neat little play would be casting Exhume with a Keiga, the Tide Star on board and sacrificing it to steal the best thing. Theft recursion synergies!

Mindcrank would be disgusting here with all the life pings and I love the thought of it so much!

We can def hop on a call to talk strat on this. I got pretty lost in this concept hahaha.

There's an infinite/big mana combo that's pretty easy to hit consistently with Peregrine Drake, that usually made it easy to get to In Garruk's Wake, but focusing more on creature synergy keeps it on track.

Yeah, that seems like a great include. I've been actually thinking of cutting Villainous Wealth in this deck, but it's such a good win con.

I was finally able to get it to where I want it thanks to your help :)

  • I was a little ambitious with Burglar Rat as I was hoping it would over perform with Yarok interactions. If all the pieces are within reach I can potentially trigger up to a 4 card discard, but not exactly in line with what the deck wants to do, so I removed it to keep focus.

  • I decided on keeping Plague Mare as I feel its got high potential to keep me safe. Indestructible and hexproof tend to be pretty prevalent in our meta and this guy helps kill them by bring toughness to zero, while only targeting my opponents creatures. Yarok + any Flicker affect = -4/-4, which is a respectable one sided wipe. It's cheaper than In Garruk's Wake (which I opted to remove since I cant fish it out with pod effects), and helps me climb up the ladder. I also added Massacre Wurm since it had a price drop. They kinda act like child and parent here haha.

  • Took out Teferi's Time Twist cuz screw that guy.

  • Orc Sureshot was just as ambitious as Burglar Rat. I thought that since I'm creating so many tokens it might be cool to benefit and pick of giant threats on the board, but in playtesting he didn't impact very much and often times I ended up podding to move up to better pieces. I also removed Blood Seeker for the same reason.

  • I thought Sailor of Means would be cool for some burst mana, but it being temporary really feels lackluster. I run Pitiless Plunderer in my Korvold Deck and he is a power house for sure, but I don't feel like I kill enough of my creatures consistently enough for him to perform here. I added a Farhaven Elf to get some more permanent mana to play with.

All great suggestions, I appreciate you taking a look. I still owe you a few deck checks myself haha.
