Ammit Eternal Discussion

Hey BransBranflakes, I like the list! Thanks for the inspiration.
But the further i read on Tayam, the more bland he becomes with the same infinite combos between Ashnod's Altar and various creatures you noted (and Weaponcraft Enthusiast ). What is your experience on the diversity of Tayam and people who play against it? Is it the same song and dance with this commander every game, or can you win on different matters?
The ability got me with so many ideas.. I mean its nothing like Karador! First I was thinking of going tokens with a sacrifice subtheme. I could use Teysa, Orzhov Scion that can also create white tokens from the black tokens that e.g. Dreadhorde Invasion or Ophiomancer create. It will be an endless loop!.. Or landfall, as Tayam can make some cool land recurring triggers using Evolution Sage , Felidar Retreat and many more landfall critters. He also makes a cool Abzan coloured Enchantress (recurring Animate Dead or Pernicious Deed while drawing cards from Setessan Champion and enchantresses alike and even a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons subtheme sounds good, where Ammit Eternal , Devoted Druid and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician are great inclusions.

@rkjunior: I recently added Deadly Brew . Like unlike Regrowth or Eternal Witness , it cant get back any card but it can get back any permanent so it is a little more flexible when I am looking at my non-creature options. Now, the hard part was figuring out what to cut, I still had Meren of Clan Nel Toth on my list, so I decided that could go, because I am also running Malakir Rebirth Flip, Animate Dead , Reanimate and Eternal Witness . Ideally, I will sack a token to Deadly Brew , but in a pinch to get back a combo piece, there are other creatures that can go to the yard and still make it worth while.
While I am here Daedalus19876, I noticed that Ammit Eternal is no longer in your main board - I am shocked. This guy has always brought value to my board. What made you think he is no longer worth while? And Banewhip Punisher is added!? I have never felt that Banewhip was worth it, are you finding that you just couldn't get better removal?

Thank you for upvoting my deck. We all work so hard on these things and its nice to have someone else show appreciation for it! I came here to return the favor. When I got here, I had to learn what Pioneer format was all about--I like that they are making time segments that are larger than they used to because I have always been more of a player than a collector.
This deck definitely accomplishes your goals-- it has an obvious theme and the cards are completely affordable. I have a couple of suggestions that would fit into this deck, but I am not sure if they would improve it...just some ideas (I made sure they were affordable as well). Also, I noticed the low number of creatures and wanted to see if I could persuade you into adding a few more. I recognize that the ratio of cards in the deck that caused the desired "life loss/gain effect" needs to be really high for the deck to be functional...finding that balance is likely the hardest part for the newer player.
- Cryptolith Fragment Flip : Seems to be right on theme with the life loss for opponents thing and could provide some ramp.
- Multiform Wonder : Uses and provides energy as well. This could give the player a blocker and a little flexibility, at least if you are running 4 copies of Gonti's Machinations .
- Ammit Eternal : Cheap CMC for a 5/5. Worst case scenario, the opponent is losing 3 life once. Best case scenario, you have a creature that swings every turn and applies pressure.
- Baleful Ammit : Combos with the card above nicely, provides lifegain as well. Also Cheap CMC.
- Bloodhunter Bat : Is one more mana than Sovereign's Bite , does the same thing and provides you with a flyer.
- Bloodthirsty Aerialist : With there already being 50% of your deck causing you to gain life, this seems like an awesome option. They will grow to the point of ridiculousness very quickly. The price shown here is twice as high as it is when I looked it up, but it is still less than a dollar.
What is great is that there are so many available that I had absolutely no trouble finding some to fit into this theme...I only made it partway through the B's!
Great deck and good luck in your endeavors!

looking at tayam i see three (3) things that tickle my fancy
1) "each other creature you control" means tokens are fair game
2) "remove three counters from among" means all counters are fair game, and they don't have to be on the same card
3) "CMC 3 or less" means value dorks!
this makes me think that cards like Herald of Anafenza for counters/tokens/more counters; Ammit Eternal for a steady supply of counters, pairs well w/cards like Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons / Flourishing Defenses ; or maybe even Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip and other value-ogres are more viable than the heavy-hitters at the top of the curve?

I'm sorry to say that your combo might not work. Illness in the Ranks seems to provide an anthem effect that doesn't actually put counters on creatures. It only reduces their power and toughness, which just hurts your own efforts. I think that you might want to take out some other cards as well so you can put some better ones in. Here are my suggestions:
Dusk Urchins and Castle Locthwain draws you more cards, and you can cast Unearth on it to bring it back as well as a bunch of other things. Devoted Druid is good for getting you more mana, and Utopia Sprawl is more efficient than Weirding Wood. Ammit Eternal is pretty good as well, as it gets you tons of value from your Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Nest of Scarabs. I recommend putting Scarscale Ritual into your sideboard since you don't have one right now. I get the feeling that you're trying to go for a budget build, but you might want to try to put in 4 copies of Overgrown Tomb in place of 2 Swamps and 2 Forests. If you don't want to spend the money on those, I suggest that you put in 4 Zagoth Triomes instead. You might also want to take a look at on Scryfall to check out other possibilities.

Nice deck ! ;)
Did you try adding some cards giving +1/+1 counters ? 'cause there's a rule where a +1/+1 counter negates a -1/-1 counter; that might be usefull for some cards you play like Ammit Eternal or Devoted Druid

IzmAYAYA: Ammit Eternal, Soul Snuffers, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Black Sun's Zenith, and Grim Affliction are my biggest token producers. I tend to tutor for them, or draw aggressively until I find them.

Thanks for the suggestion,Balaam__. I hadn't given it a look until you suggested it, and I think that it definitely has a place in the deck, but I don't know what I should replace. Best I can think is to cut Ammit Eternal and then go down to 2 copies of Festering Mummy, but I'm not sure. Any ideas?
