Arcane Lighthouse occurrence in decks from the last year

Arcane Lighthouse Discussion

In order to idealize this a bit more, I would suggest altering your mana base. You have 10 lands that tap for colorless mana. This will definitely get in the way of casting your commander as soon as possible, as well as making it difficult to cast cards out of your hand. Arcane Lighthouse and Detection Tower are great in control decks, but not so much in aggro decks. For an aggro deck, the best removal is player removal. Forge of Heroes , Opal Palace , and Unstable Frontier aren't really that good either. You don't need your commander to be big since she's flying and probably won't die in most combat situations. I would suggest more dual lands, if you have them, or at least Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds . You won't have much fun if you can't cast your commander or any of the color heavy cards in your hand.

Hi NetholonTheArchmage !
One year has passed and I'm always in love with your deck.
I spended many time to change some cards of your deck. I find that Pendant of Prosperity , Tolaria West and Dack Fayden fit very well in the deck, as Humility or Land Tax , but you probably already know for those ones.
Arcane Lighthouse and/or Shadowspear are great cards to deal with shroud/hexproof/indestructible, depending your playgroup. It's same for graveyard hate, but I'm still looking for a good card cause I also play with my graveyard.
Trying to replace Robe of Mirrors (I don't like aura, they vanish with board wipes), I find Spiritual Asylum , wich seems perfect on the spot. But I don't feel confortable with the shroud effect it give. Sure, it protect your creatures and (most important) your lands, but it cancel the Zedruu's ability on lands, wich I'm used to give . Still keeping in mind Lightning Greaves , but it can't be tutored with Wild Research
Finally, thank you for your work. It really make me love Zedruu, and gived me the strength to start building a deck (I mean, ctrl c - ctrl v your deck). Best of luck to you, can't wait for next update

Going to try the following additions + cuts:
Those are my trades for now. I'll need to give it a few plays to see how it feels, but I'm hopeful these card swap choices are fun ones and help to smooth things out a little.

i have a kozi deck also, so i have a couple thoughts..
if you want to make Kozi a one-hit-kill, you could try some things like Hedron Matrix, Grafted Exoskeleton, Fireshrieker, Eldrazi Conscription
Also, if you want to work on your mana base, i would consider removing:
Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse. Warped Landscape, Ruins of Oran-Rief, Ash Barrens as these lands either enter tapped or fetch basics. i also opted not to run the urza's lands as it is so unlikely to get all 3. But if you do run them, you could run Expedition Map to help you fetch a useful land.
some nice lands to add could be:
War Room, Bonders' Enclave, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Ghost Quarter, Blinkmoth Nexus, Rishadan Port, Tectonic Edge, Arcane Lighthouse
anyway just my thoughts, hope you enjoy playing with Kozi and have fun!!!

I feel like this deck wants to be fairly aggro, but you've built it to have quite a bit of control.
Arena and other fight effects could help you ditch your stolen creature similar to the Fling mechanics you currently have. I feel like you'll run out steam really quickly with all of these one-off effects. Maybe use Jalira, Master Polymorphist for a repeatable way to transform random stuff you steal from opponents into useful permanent stuff you need. I would also recommend Prime Speaker Vannifar or any other card with this effect like Birthing Pod. Throw in some really good, efficient green creatures too.
You should be getting enough card advantage by stealing opponents' stuff and transforming it into flings and polymorphs, but the deck needs to win. You're relying on the opponents having good creatures to steal, but you need to have good creatures too.
Yasova is a really cool commander, not one I see often. I like where you are going with this. Good luck!

Made a few edits last night - took out some "Exile" effects from my instants list (Deadly Rollick for example, even though I like the free aspect of it) since they wouldn't trigger Toshiro. I also tried to add a few more things to give me wincons, like Lashwrithe, Hatred, and even other creatures like Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief. Also a couple more pieces to combat hexproof like Detection Tower and Shadowspear to complement Arcane Lighthouse. I will keep play testing this though!

Righteous Aura is so underrated. Notice how it doesn't say 'target'. 2 mana to play, 1 mana and 2 life, and it prevents the damage completely. Never take Commander damage again.
Also, can confirm, Arcane Lighthouse goes in all of my decks. The opportunity cost is so low because its just a land, which makes it hard to interact with, and you forever get the ability to shut off your opponents' protection. Detection Tower is less good, but still very playable, and the next best is Shadowspear. The others are a bit more niche and I've never really played them.

Has there been any notable new cards ever since war of the spark? I just found out this gem of a commender deck (and read MegaMatt13'sprimer as well), gosh, I'll never look at commander in quite the same way. I did want to make some political-ish sort of deck with sphinxes and riddles and pillowforts / redirection stuff, felt like a nice theme, sphinxes and riddles (aka, politics and decision making), but its nowhere near as good as an archetype as what I'm seeing in yours and the other one's deck, I'm sold.
What do you think about
1-Crown of Doom how is it as a card to make enemies waste time / mana and to help redirect attackers elsewhere? too unreliable? it seems very fun and in the theme, so I assume the issue is reliability?
2-Coercive Portal too expenssive for draw even if it works over many turns? / unreliable when the board state seems too good for opponenets? or since it kills creatures, it doesnt redirect them to enemies?
4-Lithoform Engine it seem like it does a lot of nice things for reasonable cost. anything it could potentially replace?
5-Act of Authority as an enchantment and artifact removal? doesn't look like your list has things that would be high priority target, so, is it because of the speed and / or that it destroy stuff and might target you as well, as unlikely as it is?
I assume all of these are not there because they aren't as efficient as the alternatives currently in the deck, just wondering if they have ever been discussed before.
