Creakwood Liege Discussion

Great suggestions, thanks!
Okay, you got me. I was focusing so much on the combo aspect of this deck, that I (for some reason) took out Grafted Exoskeleton , which was a mistake. I need multiple ways of winning. Not just one.
You're right about the Awaken the Erstwhile .
The reason I haven't been putting in cards like Izoni, Thousand-Eyed , Creakwood Liege or even Monkey Cage , is they're on the high CMC side, and I wasn't really trying to go too deep into a token build. I feel like for Izoni in particular, she wouldn't actually give me that many tokens. A lot of the time, there's only 3 or 4 creatures in my graveyard.
I particularly like your Ooze Garden suggestion. 2-mana 8/8s seem pretty good.

I find EDH Hogaak fascinating as a deck.
I don't see Grafted Exoskeleton on your list actually, though you mentioned it in the comments. There's also Glistening Oil if you haven't considered it.
Birthing Pod + Hogaak --> Craterhoof is a combo not on here which is pretty clean, if not infinite.

Hey austintayshus thanks for the tips much appreciated! I'll definately try to fit in more draw thats solid advice. in my meta there arent many fliers to stop Thrummingbird until later in the game and I feel like proliferate is a really strong ability espescialy if I already have counters on the whole army via things like Mikaeus, the Lunarch or Bloodspore Thrinax . This is also why I wanted to keep Roalesk, Apex Hybrid but I think you are right about that one. The Creakwood Liege is a tough one its the first single I bought so although you are right I think I'll keep him cuz he doesnt have a spot in any other deck and I get joy throwing him down! I have a Mentor of the Meek laying around so hes in! Consecrated Sphinx is a bit out of the budget for this deck although it is bonkers. I feel like Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest has a lot of synergy in this deck so I'll play test once I complete the list but keep him under tight scrutinity. I always worry about getting rid of evasion but maybe I'll get rid of the Bramblewood Paragon for a Bred for the Hunt .
Anyways cheers thanks for the help you've caused solid reflection!

Looks like a fun strategy, but I have a few suggestions.
First, you need more lands. Looks like you have 6 open spots atm, definitely fill those with lands, preferably shock lands like Overgrown Tomb and Hallowed Fountain . I think you would be okay with 34-38 lands. And a few basic lands is fine in a 4-color deck.
Second, you'll need more card draw effects, by my count you only have 6 (7 if you count Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, which I really don't). I'd recommend recurrable effects like Beast Whisperer and Harvester of Souls and Consecrated Sphinx and Mentor of the Meek . About 10 card draw effects is a good number for most decks.
I TOTALLY understand getting too attached to certain cards and I also hate cutting cards, but some cards that I would recommend cutting are
Bramblewood Paragon I don't think you have enough warriors for him to be that useful.
Roalesk, Apex Hybrid kinda expensive for not much reward
Thrummingbird not good if everyone has a flyer.
Creakwood Liege it's a pretty slow token generator
Herald of Secret Streams You'll be making enough tokens that you can swarm over anyone,
Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest also kinda expensive for his effect.
Hope this helps! +1

If you're looking for token gen options, there are a bunch of cards you can consider:
Creakwood Liege , Hooded Hydra , Krenko, Mob Boss : Hooded hydra is a lot better than it seems. It acts like a token/sac bomb in my Prossh, Skyraider of Kher deck (which used to be a Shattergang deck) and can win games when you have cards like Dictate of Erebos on the field.
I'm putting Ophiomancer standalone here cause this card is a no-brainer. A snake every upkeep means you can sac during each player's turn and still get the snake back.

Slimefoot, the Stowaway is more of an experimental add,but i like him because his ability cost mana versus just creating a token at your upkeep.
and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is the antimill card of the deck, because he forces you to shuffle your graveyard into your library.

I see you have a mix of recursion and tokens in here. Given you have Parallel Lives and Doubling Season , I think it would be better to focus on tokens instead of the recursion like Squee, the Immortal or Eternal Scourge since they tend to be more mana intensive as well.
Slimefoot, the Stowaway is pretty mana intensive for token gen. Is there a reason for choosing that over things like Creakwood Liege or From Beyond ? They might fall off late game, but it's frees up a lot of mana.
