Auton Soldier

Artifact Creature — Alien Soldier

You may have Auton Soldier enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield, except it isn't legendary, is an artifact in addition to its other types, and has myriad. (Whenever it attacks, for each opponent other than defending player, you may put a token that's a copy of this creature onto the battlefield tapped and attacking that player or a planeswalker they control. Exile the tokens at end of combat.)

Looks good! Personally I would make these swaps:

Dolmen Gate -> Spark Double
Outlaws' Merriment -> Irenicus's Vile Duplication
Tocasia's Welcome -> Sakashima of a Thousand Faces
Reconnaissance -> Sakashima the Impostor
Iroas, God of Victory -> Auton Soldier
Orzhov Advokist -> Quantum Misalignment
Grand Abolisher -> Castle Ardenvale
Stalwart Pathlighter -> Castle Embereth

Cool deck! Personally I would make these swaps:

Messenger Jays -> Academy Manufactor
Lieutenants of the Guard -> Coalition Flag (fun to put on Tivit since he has Ward 3)
Venser's Journal -> Auton Soldier (can copy Tivit!)
Winged Words -> Battle Mastery (double strike on Tivit to double his effect)
Propaganda -> Thorough Investigation
Warden of Evos Isle -> Worn Powerstone
Emergency Powers -> Anointed Procession
Fact or Fiction -> Spark Double
Dig Through Time -> Irenicus's Vile Duplication
Eligeth, Crossroads Augur -> Inspiring Statuary (can tap itself to reduce costs, also allows you to tap clues & treasures to reduce costs)
Sphinx Sovereign -> Brago's Representative
Treasure Cruise -> Sakashima of a Thousand Faces
Opt -> Sakashima the Impostor
Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign -> Time Sieve
Vexing Sphinx -> Mirkwood Bats
Aetherize -> Mondrak, Glory Dominus
Sphinx of Foresight -> Rise and Shine
Glyph Keeper -> Cyberdrive Awakener

Bonehoard Dracosaur and Auton Soldier isn't good options to the deck? In a scenario with Miirym on the field, can have another Bonehoard Dracosaur to exile plus two cards and get it's benefits. Auton Soldier is {{2}} more than Irenicus's Vile Duplication, but... if you copy Scourge of Valkas or have Dragon Tempest on battlefield, attack with Myriad may be kinda of a finisher, since are two or more dragons entering at that time. Just thoughts.

HIIIII OMFG I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!! I've been thinking of trying to build an Animate Library meme deck for myself the past couple weeks, only to find this!!!! Everything looks pretty good to me! Just wondering why, if they're your main wincons, you don't have full playsets of Grimoire of the Dead or Animate Library in the deck. I would/will probably do that building my own version.

Oh also now that I'm thinking about it, I feel like the deck is quite costed, so the ideal cost of Compulsive Research, discarding a land, feels bad lolz! I might run Divination, as suggested by HalbrechtHalbrecht instead. Though I understand wanting to discard a lot, for the Grimoire. Idk. I'm still new to all this!

I love the tight deck theming going on, but I'm way too competitive a person to not abandon some of it if I could make the deck better! Perhaps instead of Walking Archive, a pretty new card: Auton Soldier? Myriad would be disgusting!

If you really go the copy route (which was my own first thought for an Animate Library deck), Mechanized Production could be a cool tertiary wincon for this deck. Actually, wouldn't you have to choose between Grimoire support and MP support for either to actually work? Too much going on otherwise. Anyway, The Mycosynth Gardens, I think would allow you to copy the library creature just by tapping it? It has a CMC condition, but the library itself doesn't cost any mana, only the enchantment that made it into a creature does! So it would be a free copy!

I could go on and on about all the spells I've researched that would allow you to copy the library creature, but I digress! Adding enough of them is gonna make this deck much, much less budget, too. So I will conclude with: thank you so much for this deck list!!!! Have you gotten the chance to play it since you made it?? I'd love to know your experience with the deck!!!!
