Crib Swap Discussion

I love the idea of the Changeling-Ally theme and it can easily be misjudged for a weak synergy. I would add some interaction and a couple more single target removal. I would suggest you to consider the various charms (both two and three colors. Ex. Crosis's Charm , Naya Charm , Sultai Charm , etc...) and also Crib Swap just for flavor's sake.

Ah I see.
You are correct that if the commander's color identity is pure white, then you could only include colorless and white cards. However, Tazri, Beacon of Unity 's color identity is thanks to the appearance of those symbols in her text box.
If you go with Tazri, you might consider picking these up: Coveted Prize , Nimble Trapfinder , Thwart the Grave , Crib Swap (this card has all creature types, so it can be picked up via Tazri's ability!), Nameless Inversion , Linvala, Shield of Sea Gate , Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats , Squad Commander , Oakhame Adversary , Malakir Blood-Priest , Veteran Adventurer , Sygg, River Cutthroat , Nullpriest of Oblivion , Moritte of the Frost , Nin, the Pain Artist

The deck could use some more ramp options and fixing. Some budget format staples for this include Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , and Ash Barrens are all good cards to help you get the colors you need. For ramp, you're pretty much going to be stuck to artifact-based ramp, so Sol Ring , Rakdos Signet , Boros Signet , and Orzhov Signet are all good options for this deck.
I would also recommend upping your spot removal portion of the deck. You've got good wraths, but sometimes you don't need to blow up all of the things, especially if that would mean losing your own artifacts or enchantments. Return to Dust is very good. Even just a Disenchant could be a decent addition. Also just as fun synergy for creature removal, Crib Swap counts as a vampire spell, and so would give you a vampire token if you cast it.
You've got good card draw, but a couple other suggestions, Twilight Prophet is great for drawing extra cards and has obvious synergy, and Mentor of the Meek will let you draw cards whenever your commander makes a token (and speaking of, Anointed Procession will let you make twice the tokens)
Lastly I'd recommend Forerunner of the Legion since it's a solid tutor for this kind of deck.
My own Edgar deck isn't really refined since I built it a while ago, but if it's of any help, you can check out what's currently in it as well.

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.
Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.
Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.
Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.
Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound
Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver
Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie
General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

lil_cheez thanks for dropping by Hive. Your suggestion seems pretty legit, but I have designed my deck in such a way that I am always trying to progress towards my win cons, whilst denying spells to my opponents using counterspells like Pact of Negation, Mana Drain and Voidslime. If the board gets to sketchy I can then also blow up the board with mass removal like Austere Command and Blasphemous Act and pinpoint with Necrotic Sliver. Also, with Crib Swap they get a "sliver token". Usually a token is not a big deal. A token with that many abilities can be something pretty scary.
Thanks for the upvote.
So, do you have or are you looking at building a sliver deck?

Maybe you could squeeze in a Crib Swap as it is efficient removal and Overlord can tutor for it, just be aware that the opponent will get a "sliver" token
