Awesome deck, as usual! :D

If you are able to find an affordable copy, Kalonian Hydra might be an effective game-ender here! It looks like it's still around $15 though, even after all those reprints :-\

I'm not sure if it fits as well in terms of flavor but Biomass Mutation would also be an interesting finisher since many of your hydras' actual base stats are really low.

If you are looking for any more repeatable draw sources, Reconnaissance Mission or Coastal Piracy might get you a lot of cards with all those hungry, trampling mouths!

But really, your deck looks amazing as-is and balances thematic flavor with powerful utility perfectly :)

I'm not sure if you got the precon or not, but a few of the cards from it are real gems for this deck!

Adrix and Nev, Twincasters can duplicate the number of tokens you get just like any of the other doubling season effects. Any of these effects copy the effect that makes the token, so the token would still enter with whatever number of counters the origin of the effect would make.

Curiosity Crafter is a token-specific Reconnaissance Mission / Coastal Piracy - style effect. If you're able to consistently make large enough tokens, Garruk's Uprising and Elemental Bond are also excellent options.

Ruxa, Patient Professor is amazing with Fractals! Ignore the first paragraph...the second and third line are gold. And that third line helps us get that sweet value from the Curiosity Crafter-style draw spells.

Don't be afraid of instant-speed draw like Eureka Moment and Growth Spiral . They may look unimpressive, but they perform way better than they look. Return of the Wildspeaker would also likely be awesome in your deck, with a bunch of very large non-humans. Perplexing Test has also performed very well in my token deck.

I'm going to call out Full Flowering and any other token copiers as cards that might not perform very well, since those don't replicate the +1/+1 counters on your 0/0 tokens. Biomass Mutation is an absolute house in here, especially with any form of evasion, like Ruxa, trample from Garruk's Uprising, or the flying from Combine Chrysalis .

Hey there! Personally I would make these swaps:

Solemn Simulacrum -> Coastal Piracy

Melek, Izzet Paragon -> Distant Melody

Efreet Flamepainter -> Cathars' Crusade

Elsha of the infinite -> Spark Double

Devour Intellect: more neat design space, especially with actual nontoken Treasure cards in mind.

Gelatinous Ooze: Neat flavor and all but is this really Rare-worthy? Some bleed of something white-associated too.

Grazilaxx: Cunning Evasion & Coastal Piracy stapled together on legs, and it can be a commander? Not bad at all, tho I'm kinda disappointed Illithids didn't get their own creature type. Oh well, more for future Horror tribal I guess. (Also, this guy is True Neutral apparently? Guess eating people's brains and collaborating with soul-consuming liches isn't all that bad in the grand scheme of things.)

Werewolf Pack Leader: Midnight Hunt lets goooooooooooo

Haha, yes! That mana base again!!! I don’t really care for Coastal Piracy even though it is card draw, but I do like the Shared Animosity rec... it is a cheaper cmc to Kindred Charge. I like that! I am aware of Malcolm but not sure where he would fit. I would take suggestions on what cards you think are the weak links of you were to put Malcolm or Coastal Piracy in. Thanks and Cheers!

Love tribal Pirates!

There is a lot of room for improvement with your mana base: filter lands, modal lands, bond lands, etc.

I think Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator would be a nice addition, generating mana and potentially ramping treasures into your Mechanized Production.

Coastal Piracy is on-theme and a great draw engine.

I would use Shared Animosity over Kindred Charge.

Hope these comments give you ideas!

I comment while keeping in mind a low budget.

Cut 3 mana ramp when possible:

Cards I'd cut: - 2 lands. 36 is enough if you smooth the curve a bit. - In Garruk's Wake -> Decree of Pain ? Maybe, idk, it depends. But you get more chances to use it, trust me I know something of dimir ramp myself. - Oona, Queen of the Fae -> Be careful. X costs are tough to pay for in dimir and more often than not, paying 5-10 mana to get 2 1/1 farie rogues isn't worth, it wastes your turn. Recall: lands are colorless and most decks you'll face are multi-colored. Oona isn't evena rogue in the first place, so no advantage to attack with her. - Obelisk of Urd -> Not so strong. It buffs all your rogues, but at the cost of using your whole mana pool, or to keep your rogues from attacking. Kinda wastes your turn, and you wanna be fast.

Cards I suggest:
