Conspiracy Theorist

Creature — Human Shaman

Whenever Conspiracy Theorist attacks, you may pay and discard a card. If you do, draw a card.

Whenever you discard one or more nonland cards, you may exile one of them from your graveyard. If you do, you may cast it this turn.

Reinforced Ronin is a clear upgrade to Zurgo Bellstriker.

Containment Construct = Conspiracy Theorist #2 if necessary.

Dwarven Mine and Sokenzan, Crucible of Defiance create bodies efficiently.

I know you aren't a fan of etb lands but... would Valakut Awakening  Flip be worth a spot? Instant speed card filter/draw is nifty.

Deflecting Swat needs to be in the main. Your deck relies on your commander and this effect protects the fragile synergy. Unless you know something I don't Smuggler's Copter does not belong in this list. It cost an attacker and it does not utilize Subria's ability.

Efreet Flamepainter I'm not sure if you are running enough to justify this but the few that you are would be brutal if they were doubled. This deck can guarantee combat damage.

Possibility Storm what's your angle with this card in this strategy? Are you able to weather the chaotic storm better than other strategies?

Would Dolmen Gate be overkill or useful to the strategy?

Not suggesting this but more an observation... Harmonic Prodigy grants double triggers. If it interacted with more than just the commander it might be worth a spot but as of now it's just a fun fact. Perhaps Savage Beating for double triggers and a potential game ender?

Ok, I see there are 34 spellshapers in Bant colours (The same is true for Jeskai, btw.)

They all have a discard cost and a tap cost. So you need ways to grant haste and discard payoffs in some way.

Regarding the haste: Thousand-Year Elixir is important here. The only other card with a comparable ability is Dynaheir, Invoker Adept, which would be another powerful commander option. As she gives you access to red, granting haste would be way easier. In Bant colours, there are Crashing Drawbridge and Ulvenwald Oddity  Flip.

For discard: Containment Construct is really powerful here. Conspiracy Theorist is cool, but would need Dynaheir. There are some madness spells in Bant colours. What's more, having permanents that grant you hand positive draw effects seems super important. Shorikai, Genesis Engine is great in that regard, and gives you 1/1s to trigger Rigo.

A final idea, but a pricey one: Training Grounds is a powerhouse for such a deck. Once more, Dynaheir would grant you cheaper access in Zirda, the Dawnwaker. If budget isn't an issue, you could even play both with her.

I know you said that you're not a fan of Eldrazi - which is fair enough. The only one I really like is Ulamog's Crusher because it just seems strong but not ridiculous like most bigger Eldrazi are. That being said, Eldrazi Conscription I think is worth a look at. Having someone like Iroas, God of Victory become a 17/14 with Trample and Annihilator 2 (Annihilator 4 with Isshin, Two Heavens as One ) is pretty fun.

Still basically an Eldrazi though. So that aside, below are a few cards I'm interested in that you've not mentioned yet, though you've mentioned most of what I found as well.

Hoarding Ogre - 2x Treasure is great for early pressure and mana fixing in a three color deck. With Isshin, Two Triggers as One you'll be getting 2x-6x Treasure per attack (averaging about 4). Absolutely fantastic with Isshin, alright on its own. Monetarily cheap as well.

Conspiracy Theorist is much like Audacious Thief but instead of life.

Keldon Twilight and Total War are really on-theme for a take on the curse/politics route one can take Isshin.

Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip // Reflection of Kiki-Jiki  Flip works much the same as Hoarding Ogre, almost a free Thrill of Possibility, and create a token before the Combat Phase even begins allowing for additional "When Attacking" triggers.

Bronze Clubs: the formula for calculating how much power you get from activating it "N" times is

N(N + 1)/2

The relative power of the white and red Channel lands is kinda insulting.

Colossal Skyturtle: I like the different channel abilities, helps differentiate it from MDFCs.

Containment Construct: more concentrated, less self-sufficient Conspiracy Theorist. I like it.

Blade-Blizzard Kitsune: Doesn't feel super white but ninjas in different colors is obviously fun. Red when?

Invigorating Hot Springs: monkey bath time!

Necrosis24 on DePietro and Channel?

This has made me realize I’ve been reading Ghost of Ramirez DePietro wrong this entire time. I thought his trigger was tied to the player that was dealt damage.

Well anyways my top pick for a partner would be Tormod, the Desecrator for all the graveyard shenanigans (i.e Living Death) and discard value.

Some high synergy cards would be:

Looking at channel tho there seems to be a higher density in temur so you would have access to better ramp and can do wheel/card draw affects. So perhaps Tana, the Bloodsower with:

  • Rielle, the Everwise

  • Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip
  • The Locust God + Wheels
  • Conspiracy Theorist
  • Mizzix's Mastery + Lier, Disciple of the Drowned
  • Glint-Horn Buccaneer
  • Surly Badgersaur
  • Otherwise you can go for purate tribal in izzet with Breeches, Brazen Plunderer or monoblue with Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator

    If only you were in blue, Release to the Wind could be devastating here!

    Alas, as it stands, some good recommendations might be Chainer, Nightmare Adept and Conspiracy Theorist, though perhaps both too slow for this deck.

    I've been playing around with an idea like this a bit. Fight as One has been very good in my playtesting and could maybe replace one of your color protection effects here, as you have 11 of them so it might be nice to diversify your protection effects with some indestructible.

    Also I feel like magecraft decks probably need those cantrip cards to have enough gas to make it over the finish line, so Defiant Strike and Crash Through are probably the best options in these colors. I've also found Conspiracy Theorist to be a nice sidekick for the magecraft dudes as you can just tack on one mana to any spell to draw an extra card per turn and keep those magecraft triggers coming, and between all the pump and protection effects it should be pretty easy to keep him alive. Keep in mind that his ability will still allow you to cast either half of Adventure cards if you discard them.
