Breena, the Demagogue feature for Yes My Liege

I'm not sure if Teysa would even want a friend, but Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is a bit of a kindred, maybe they could hang for tea?

If you want people to attack a lot there is Angel's Trumpet, very handy that your Spirits have flying! Exquisite Blood is a combo piece, but it's also a strong card on it's own, it synergizes with your Commander very powerfully I'd say, if people come at you their creature's die, and if they go at each other then you gain life. Breena, the Demagogue can be used to make your stuff better. Shadrix Silverquill has a really good interaction with your Commander, if you give someone an Inkling and they come at you it dies and you get a 1/1, and if you give your board +1 counters twice than your 1/1s clobber inklings. I would run Transmogrifying Wand over Murder, it's 4 mana for the first creature but only 1 more for the next 2. You could also try something like Reckless Spite. I am a big fan of True Conviction, very good with a big token army.

It's a pretty janky card but I often enjoy using Axis of Mortality in White decks that are trying to stay on budget, you can punish or reward people as you see fit, it's a very strong political effect, and if people are losing creatures to your ability to lower your life total (while giving you evasive attackers) then you're probably gaining ground.

It's up to you obviously if you don't want to run more lands, but have you thought about including some MDFCs? I use Hagra Mauling  Flip and am happy to see it now and then, ETB tapped lands aren't great, but if the spell effect is also a playable effect their value is incredible. I'm sure you could find a use for Malakir Rebirth  Flip too, though that is less budget.

In the time that I've played Commander I've come to the conclusion that one of the hallmarks of a good deck is card draw, especially low to the ground effects. Stuff like Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper are very good in practice, there are also things like Village Rites, Corrupted Conviction, Plumb the Forbidden, and Reckoner's Bargain, these are all handy with your tokens, but also if you can't protect your Commander and they're getting blown up anyways, this can also prevent effects like Oubliette from working (which can be VERY helpful if your deck depends on your Commander, you might want a couple in the deck in case). If you think your tokens might stay 1/1s, or that you can get them to die with consistency then Skullclamp draws a lot of cards. Stinging Study draws a whopping 7 cards in this deck, for only 5 mana, I'd say that'd be handy late game.

Hey Last_Laugh,

I really like that Breena, the Demagogue you have in here. I really enjoyed playing the Breena precon back in the day but couldn't find a fun direction to make it into a full deck. I think it will find a place in Reyhan however (or Ishai as he will appreciate breena the most i guess)

I'd personally suggest cutting:

Viral Drake for Danny Pink

Guildpact Informant for Mutational Advantage

Lux Cannon for Beast Within

Atomize for Generous Gift or Stroke of Midnight

Juniper Order Ranger for Anduril, Narsil Reforged

Fuel for the Cause for Felidar Retreat

Tamiyo, Field Researcher for Marcus, Mutant Mayor

Otherworld Atlas for Breena, the Demagogue (make em earn the group huggy card draw)

Also consider Wave Goodbye and Ripples of Potential if you own them or they're in your budget.

bjgivesbj Correct! What’s more: you don’t necessary need goad to encourage your opponents to attack each other. It’s easier to convince a player to aggression when Breena, the Demagogue gives them two cards in return for such a favor.

This is a really fun and unique deck to play, but it requires a lot of cunning thinking to actually win.

Out: Solemn Simulacrum, Austere Command, Hellrider, Revenge of Ravens

In: Mardu Ascendancy, Vanquish the Horde, Breena, the Demagogue, Fervent Charge

Bringing my curve lower. Vanquish the Horde is effectively a 2-drop emergency plan. And dropping some 4-drops for 3 drops will hopefully help. Mana doesn't seem to be a big issue with all the rocks I have in the deck (TBD).

Not exactly Goad focused, but there's this recent Commander's Herald article on an Aurelia, the Law Above deck which isn't really Goad focused. This version "encourages" rather than forces opponents to attack each other.

From having played Breena, the Demagogue, or against her, I've found that opponents tend to prefer to benefit from attacking each other, rather than feel like they don't have a choice. Not saying that Goad is bad or anything, but more that it could be helpful to focus mostly repeatable single target Goad effects and mass Goad effects like the ones you're already running, and maybe some stuff from the linked deck to smooth things out.

Anyways, I hope these suggestions are all helpful as you figure out your last few cuts.
