Hello I am tuning my deck towards utilizing Backlash , Reflect Damage , Delirium , Mirror Strike , & Glarecaster . I am finding frequently that their creatures are not big enough and would like to find some cards to increase the power of my opponents creatures.
I am avoiding the use of damage doublers as I have another deck which focuses on that. Overblaze is an exception.
Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance! (I am currently slogging through the gatherer)

Orim's Chant classic isochron scepter piece. Glarecaster not only fogs but also redirects the damage back at another target. As far as I know, it will redirect all instances of simultaneous combat damage. This is a brilliant hidden gem.

That's true- I hadn't given much thought into how expensive the ability on Glarecaster is, just his personal casting cost. I think I'll drop him for the Vanquisher's Banner to offer me some more card draw, as well.

Yeah, I agree - this looks like a super fun thematic deck and like it also works :) nice one!
Definitely agreed with the land and mana-curve. 3.78 is a high average, and making land drops is so key. Another I'd consider removing for its cost is Glarecaster . It's fun as a bird tribal deterrent, but so pricey that I wonder how often it'll be holding you back from playing spells so it can remain a threat for the go around the table.

While I agree that you can't evaluate planeswalkers based on their ultimates, it is worth noting her ultimate costs 9, and her starting loyalty is 4--even with Doubling Season, you can't ultimate her on the first turn she is dropped.
Decent card, and will probably be pretty scary to play against in limited limited, but I'm not overly enthused. Granted, I really don't like planeswalkers as a card type, and will be the first to admit my bias taints my opinion.
dbpunk - it says "Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player." There are still some risks--if your opponent uses Glarecaster or the like on your creature they can force you to lose the game. But those kinds of effects are not commonly used.

Alright lets see if we can resurrect this
Thoughts of Ruin ados lands
Defensive Formation you get to puppet how damage gets threw asign all 12 of ghaltas damage to a pathetic 1/1 which is also being blocked by a deathtouch creature
Purify destory all artifacts and enchantments for 5 count me in
Planar Void do you reconize the effect?... anwser is Rest in Peace and Leyline of the Void the void is $27 rest in peace is $4 (as of masters 25) but whats the price of planar void...28........CENTS WHY IS IT ONLY $0.28 BESIDES THE FACT IT HITS EVERYBODY!!
Outmaneuver here let me give my dudes or your dudes super trample for the attack
Harmonic Convergence enchantments to top which is hate love it
you think Reflect Damage is the only option for this think again we also have Mirror Strike which is one mana less by the way and a creature that does this magic trick its name is Glarecaster ability actiavtion is exspensive but did you notice the part its like shooting everything with redirect damage
Death Match token and creatures 3 toughness or lower hate coming at ya
Debt of Loyalty i will save your creature from being put into the graveyard.....too bad i get to steal it right after
Teferi's Veil unearth and i have to exil...oh wait they don't exist so the exile clause doesn't work and i get to keep my stuff lol
AEther Flash i promise this is underplayed not even the dinosaur tribal decks are using it that much
Tranquil Grove a infinite use enchantment nuke wonderful
AEther Barrier NOW WHAT DO YOU GOT TO SAY FOR YOURSELF ANIMAR!!! >:P
Sudden Death nice try breya
Yixlid Jailer goodbye graveyard evil
to be continued......

@Mal_Mutation: The Coalhauler Swine was one of the cards that started this combo deck, so it's really more of a pet card of mine. Might not be in there for ever if I have to make this deck more resilient.
@squirlfood: Thank you! Shaman en-Kor is a fantastic card I'll definitely include! To redirect any damage dealt to a creature gives you the chance to save other peoples creatures and play the political game that makes EDH so fun! Inquisitor's Flail is combat damage only though and I don't see a lot of that. Damage doublers like Furnace of Rath a quite the double edged sword. If I have proper protection it's all good, but if not they make you a target in order to remove the card.
@PurePazaak: Hell yeah, that would be amazing. If they ever print an suitable general in RWG Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is the first card to go into the deck! Too bad we just got a Naya general that doesn't help this deck...
@LeoSushi: I see your point very nice combo, but I really try to avoid combat as much as possible with this deck and so far it has been a good strategy! Scroll Rack will find a place in there, just not sure yet where.
Thank you all for the suggestions!
