Tokens

God-Pharaoh's Gift

Artifact

At the beginning of combat on your turn, you may exile a creature card from your graveyard. If you do, create a token that's a copy of that card, except it's a 4/4 black Zombie. It gains haste until end of turn.

hello mr. durtee i just wanted too say hey cool nice deck but your playing too many creatures like what if you get field swiped dude?? haha wouldnt that be crazy any way you should make it a landless stacks control prison combo storm deck with blue i herd those were good okay thanks you john bye

I'm going to try to order these from my most to least recommended.

Mirror March: I get making token copies, even if it's only nontoken creatures. What I can't get behind is costing 6 and STILL HAVING A 50% CHANCE OF DOING NOTHING.

Spirit Bonds: Ignoring the weak payoff of the spirit token (at least by edh standards), paying five mana and sacrificing a specific creature to protect one guy for one turn is pretty lame. You can't even protect your seance tokens because they're spirits.

Mercy Killing: If you choose an opponent's creature, they get the tokens. If you choose your own guys, you're going wide at the cost of two cards.

Eyes of the Wisent:

COWARD Show

Emrakul's Evangel: I can't see what he does other than act like a one-time sac outlet that you have to wait for. 3/2 is going to be pretty close to what you're usually sacrificing anyway.

Huatli, Warrior Poet: Her token is cool, but her other abilities are really weak for the cost. Also she got a tiny booty.

Caller of the Claw: He'd be like a backup Fresh Meat if he counted the tokens too. 1 less mana for 1 less p/t would have been alright. Too bad.

Summoner's Pact: Kind of a weak creature tutor since you aren't playing toolbox or gunning for combo. Only green too.

Hornet Nest: Deathtouch flyers are good, but you don't have a way to damage it yourself and you probably have bigger threats than getting hit by birds.

Hoofprints of the Stag: Unless you add a lot more draw, these stags take forever to come out.

Godsire: Nice token, but he's got no haste or protection, which means you have to wait for the token while this dumbass sits there waiting to see if anyone around the table wants to remove him. Could be alright if you cheat him out reliably.

Regisaur Alpha: Neat to make a token copy of, but just under the bar on his own.

This is all in no particular order.

Precon artifacts ( Idol of Oblivion , Mimic Vat , Soul Foundry , Lightning Greaves ): Look at them. They do everything your deck wants to do.

Precon creatures:

Precon enchantments ( Song of the Worldsoul , Intangible Virtue ): The best populate and the best token anthem.

Precon Garruks ( Garruk, Primal Hunter ): Garruk.

Precon Sorceries ( Farseek , Hate Mirage ): Cheap ramp. Token copy maker, but for other people's creatures.

Assemble the Legion : So I heard you run doubling season. But really, you know what this does to games.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker : Splinter Twin backup. Makes infinite tapped kikis with helm, in case you needed that.

Huatli, Radiant Champion : Easy to gun for the emblem, with an alright mid ability

Nacatl War-Pride : Forcing blocks means the rest of your creatures get through, or that you can divvy up the copies to other players. Gets really crazy the next turn when you populate one of the tokens. Absolutely insane if you get an additional combat.

Heroic Intervention : Boring, but necessary

Teferi's Protection : Extra boring, but even more necessary since it's the only answer to biff out there that isn't countering it.

Selfless Spirit : Not as boring since you can make a token copy of it for repeat use.

Baloth Cage Trap : Wow, when does anyone play an artifact in edh?!?! stupid card

Sneak Attack : Cheats creatures out with haste at instant speed for one mana and puts them in the grave to seance afterwards.

Gate to the Afterlife / God-Pharaoh's Gift : Kind of an investment, but a permanent Seance with haste is no joke.

Survival of the Fittest : Puts big boys in grave, and any creature you want in hand.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : :)

ok thanks for coming to my ted talk bye

He looks like a ton of fun with Godsire , ETB effects off of Mimic Vat , an Eternalized Adorned Pouncer , and all the things that really shouldn't be tokens with God-Pharaoh's Gift .

Not bad... Consider adding God-Pharaoh's Gift and going more sacrificial. You seem focused on Amass, but Eternalize and Embalm do the same thing.

You could try Refurbish that also works well with God-Pharaoh's Gift

If you're going wide with thopters I'd cut these cards: Swiftfoot Boots , Urza’s Tome , Endless Atlas , God-Pharaoh's Gift .

Since most of your artifacts will be tokens, I don't think Padeem, Consul of Innovation and One with the Machine will be that effective unless you just want hexproof from Padeem. Same with Metalwork Colossus (not much cost reduction) and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog won't trigger that much. I don't think Ancient Stone Idol and Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer really fit the theme.

I don't think you need as many mana rocks since Saheeli discounts everything. I'd shift more to be 2 cost mana rocks if anything so Saheeli gets out faster. You don't really need the ones that cost like 6 and make 3.

Magmaquake is a great card that doesn't wipe your thopters - if you need more board wipes I'd do more like that. Deprive is bad just use Counterspell instead.

Some recommendations: Ghirapur AEther Grid , Pia Nalaar , Broodstar , Darksteel Juggernaut , Steel Overseer , Lodestone Myr , Blinkmoth Urn and Gravitational Shift . Check out cards with Metalcraft too, there might be some good ones and you'll basically always have it active.

Yeh I find Emeria, The Sky Ruin works wonders, alot of the time it comes down early and your opponents just forget about it (you can always play it down as well "its 5 land drops away thats 5 turns from now" stuff like that but with the amount of ramp in the deck you can get it online early). God-Pharaoh's Gift is maybe just a bit high variance, I did win a game recently off the back of it. If I'm being honest though God-Pharaoh's Gift does get stuck in my hand alot it costs a ton, where as Emeria, The Sky Ruin you can just kind of drop it down and forget about it. Your mana base was quite good not alot of tapped lands so you shouldnt be punished by Emeria, The Sky Ruin having to come into play tapped.

How has Emeria, The Sky Ruin been for you? I've been looking into it as a replacement for God-Pharaoh's Gift which has been under-performing for me as of late. My list is here for reference. I have a reworked manabase in my current IRL version, just looking to see if Emeria is worth it first.
