Ouroboros_47 Never thought of them. I mean, I know the cards but they're 2 drops (and a 4 drop), that have an effect only when multiple copies die at the same time. Ok, you may say that Devouring Greed will trigger them... but then again it's a "win more" situation. In any case, I'll see if I still have them all, try to fit it in the deck and playtest a bit, but I'm not sure it'll work as good as it does without them. Anyways, thanks for commenting!!

Thanks for commenting, I really appreciate it.

I'd say I'd rather keep myself in the three colors that I already have. I recognize Collected Company as a potential strong card. But I'd rather know if my deck misses some potential strong cards within its Lingering Souls approach.

So clearly token heavy, but still having some buffing lords and Devouring Greed, if possible.

There are a lot of sub-par cards in the deck given how fast the format is and the other cards that are available in it. You also need to make your deck more focused around Devouring Greed, meaning cards that either benefit from being sacrificed to Devouring Greed or ones that create more than one creature to sac to it. These are some cards you should replace (mainly in the three-drop slot because you have way too many of those and the cards in those slots aren't great):

Searchlight Geist and Bygone Bishop. They're slow and very high on the curve. Lingering Souls and Spectral Procession are both better cards in the three-drop slot, no questions asked.

Not Forgotten. 2 mana for one token is a bad rate, especially when it's a situational effect.

Thief of Hope. I can see why you included it, but the way the deck is now it's hard to get enough value out of it to warrant a playset or even playing it at all. Have you thought of playing any Zubera (Ashen-Skin Zubera and Silent-Chant Zubera) over this and Not Forgotten? they'll lower your curve and they have an upside when they're sacrificed or killed in general.

Promise of Bunrei provides the only non-white creatures in the deck (4 out of possible 48 to be exact) and is mainly meant for Devouring Greed to deal atleast 10dmg if for some reason I get wiped. I mean no offence, but Vessel of Ephemera is miles worse.

Your mana base is not consistent enough to make the deck work fast enough (in playtesting I always had problems with the mana).

You need more dual lands, not expensive ones, such as Caves of Koilos super cheap and effective a full list of cards Id recommend going into the land slots being:

Caves of Koilos

Scoured Barrens

Adarkar Wastes

Underground River

Port Town

Irrigated Farmland

Sejiri Refuge

Jwar Isle Refuge

Salt Flats

To speed up the deck as well you could also include one or two more mana rocks, Thran Dynamos Iconic Masters version is currently about $2.5

Also if you wanted too you could base the deck around a recursion combo with Second Sunrise and Devouring Greed, just find a way to recurr the two spells, add some cheap tutor effects (Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambitionand boom

I just realize what I never bought back in the day that kept this deck from winning as often as it shoulda... Devouring Greed is already in my cart!

So let's just say Ember-Fist Zubera, Floating-Dream Zubera, and Ashen-Skin Zubera are all on the battlefield, and I cast Devouring Greed. All of the creatures die at the same time, so does each Zubera's death trigger automatically go to 3? Will I get to draw three cards, make target opponent discard three cards, and deal three damage to a target creature or player (with the effects of Devouring Greed of course), or do I have to have them trigger separately so that it'll happen in an order of one zubera trigger is at one, the second is at two, and the third is at three?

That could work. I'm a bit afraid of BBB, but it could replace 1 Devouring Greed.
