Alter Reality seems swappable since it's a very situational effect that doesn't have many uses outside a Blind Seer deck. So Cackling Counterpart can totally replace that.

I would also probably take out Artful Dodge for the Vizier since your spirits already have that needed evasion via flying.

Here are some I use, seperated by category:

Double Strike: Temur Battle Rage , Assault Strobe , Psychotic Fury , Buccaneer's Bravado , Raking Claws

Haste: Expedite , Crimson Wisps , Accelerate , Fever Charm

Evasion/Unblockable: Distortion Strike , Slip Through Space , Artful Dodge , Crypsis

Protection: Dive Down , Mizzium Skin , Glint , Shell Shield , Lazotep Plating

Power Pump: Rush of Blood , Balduvian Rage , Dynacharge , Unleash Fury , Sure Strike , Brute Strength , Titan's Strength , Rouse the Mob , Infuriate

Other than that, I run some value cards, like Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip, Storm-Kiln Artist , and Aetherflux Reservoir to just go on, and on, and on, and on, so on and so forth. Plenty of Draw Spells to keep the gas going, and some other Spell-slinging accoutrements.

@ DemMeowsephs Thank you for the suggestions! Voltron is a new way of playing for me as well! Yeah, unfortunately adding kaho and eisor would mess up the polymorph plan. Though with Thassa, God of the Sea , Kaho, Minamo Historian , and especially Esior, Wardwing Familiar I think they still have potential as Polymorph/Voltron commanders, with them having a lower converted mana cost and built in evasion, something to look at in the future! The cheap removal cards you recommended were on my radar as well, added them to the maybe board if I find myself needing better interaction!

I agree as well with the recast able unlockable effects! I run Artful Dodge in my Rielle, the Everwise deck! The Crab and our Blightsteel Colossus payoff don't typically need more than one or two attacks to eliminate a player, so it might work! With a primary gameplan to sacrifice the Crab for a polymorph, I'm a little hesitant to include too many enchantment aura effects that make our creatures unblockable, though on the other hand, it could be better in terms of tempo, getting faster crab attacks in the early game. Something to playtest in the future I think!

Hey there! Voltron is indeed a load of fun (check out my Voltron deck, yes shameless plugs), and I may just have some suggestions for you that I have found in my Voltron journey!

This deck might benefit from evasion cards like Aqueous Form, Artful Dodge, and Awesome Presence.

I'd also recommend swapping out Nyx Lotus and Gilded Lotus for different rocks. It costs 4 mana to cast AND comes in tapped AND you aren't even guaranteed to get value out of it. It all depends on whether or not you're having a good game. You could play this turn 4, not get to use it til turn 5 since it's tapped, AND still maybe only get 1 or 2 mana out of it. Oh, and because of its high cost it's going to be a juicy target for removal. If it gets blown up you basically just skipped a turn. Gilded Lotus is similarly a large target for removal, it's slow, and if it gets destroyed it isn't quite like skipping a turn since you get 3 out of it immediately, but it's still a setback. Everflowing Chalice and Fellwar Stone would each be pretty nice replacements.

I like your deck! Big crab is gonna be fun to see in action. Hope this helps. :^)

Bounty of Might seems weak, since to copy it, you're paying 6 to give one creature +9

Can you copy Blossoming Defense, Hunter's Insight or Ranger's Guile on other player's creatures?

Artful Dodge makes all opponents unable to block on attacks, as does Mugging, Off Balance, Renegade Tactics, Singe, Stun

All of the ___ Wisps cards, Expedite, Leap, Accelerate, Carom, Pressure Point, Quickchange, Refocus, will draw a ton of cards on a big board.

Also a ton of mass-damage, mass-bounce, mass-protection, mass-indestructible you could look at. Ex: Snap is a pseudo boardwipe that generates a ton of mana

Clockspinning is 1 mana to get 2 counters, or 5 mana to get 4 counters. Do you reckon it has a place here? In addition, flashback and buyback seems really good in this. Stuff like Lava Dart, Artful Dodge, Reckless Charge, and Seething Anger might be good.

Nevinyrral_Mayor_of_Urborg Teferi's Veil and Vanishing are extremely underappreciated cards you can throw on commanders or valuable creatures and keep them alive; Aether Tunnel and Aqueous Form are cheap and reliable ways to ensure combat damage while things like Distortion Strike Artful Dodge and Slip Through Space all allow someone to sneak in for a huge hit of damage and provides a small boost to a couple of your creatures by being in the yard. And Trailblazer's Boots pretty much read unblockable in most EDH games.
