Helm of the Host

Legendary Artifact — Equipment

At the beginning of combat on your turn, create a token that's a copy of equipped creature, except the token isn't legendary if equipped creature is legendary. That token gains haste.

Equip (: Attach this to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery. This enters the battlefield unattached and stays on the battlefield if the creature this card is attached to leaves the battlefield.)

Have you thought about trying to give Zangief Deathtouch and Trample, so he can deal 2 damage to each creature? Would be funny with a Lure or Nemesis Mask. Ohran Frostfang is a nice Deathtouch source and draw source if you've got creatures, Bow of Nylea also makes it easier to kill creatures. There are countless great trample sources in Green, I can point out a few if necessary, including ones like Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma that have lots of other upsides.

Would janky stuff like Akroan Horse make sense here, to give opponents weenies for Zangief to piledrive? If people have a bunch of weenies, you can hit them with a Chandra's Ignition, so Zangief Piledrives stuff for you. Helm of the Host can copy Zangief for you I guess?

Been meaning to build Niambi all year but I keep getting distracted by other commanders. I really like your take on Azorius reanimator. Death or Glory is a pet card of mine and it really shines in this build. I also like how you snuck in the legendary sorceries to feed to Niambi. However, I'm confused by the lack of legendary artifacts!

Helm of the Host seems prime for abuse in this list.

Mox Amber suddenly pricey but very appropriate in this list.

Sword of the Animist ramp value. Cut Burnished Hart

The Immortal Sun your list is low on planeswalkers so this is powerful value.

Umezawa's Jitte swiss army knife.

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds an island that you can feed to Niambi in the late game.

Academy Ruins low on artifacts but worth it.

Hall of Heliod's Generosity really low on enchantments but probably worth it.

Conjurer's Closet/Teleportation Circle the etb effects in this list are worth recycling over and over.

lcarl3035 have definitely considered both of those, especially for Godo, Bandit Warlord. Kaldra wasn't selected in favor of having Drach'Nyen in the board, and not having Helm of the Host was also a similar decision since Godo didn't make the cut.

Good recommendations though! I'd be interested to see how your own list looks in comparison.

Cool deck! Any thoughts on Kaldra Compleat or Helm of the Host?

If you're running Godo, Bandit Warlord you might as well slip in Helm of the Host to just win on the spot.

For Determined Iteration, I feel Helm of the Host has this base covered pretty well although Determined Iteration does combo really easily with Combat Celebrant so perhaps. I'll also have to check out more cards with Populate, I almost forgot about them so thank you for reminding me!

And you should definitely build a deck with Brudiclad hes kinda wild!

Awww man you're right, I just new the Companion conditions were too easy. I was so looking forward to Lutri, the Spellchaser + Snap hijinx though.

Splinter Twin lost its spot to Endless Evil, for what we use it for we don't really need haste and if we do Brudiclad covers it plus now the tokens stick around.

For Desolation Twin I went with Myr Battlesphere instead because it drops more tokens. Going wide felt a little more right and we can still make Myr Battlesphere tall if we need to. Also we have Dark Depths to grab Marit Lage for a giant creature token if we need it.

Thanks for the suggestions and send more if you think of any! Also let me know what you guys think of these cards for what to potentially take out to get the deck size to 100: Reduce / Rubble, Rhystic Study, Treachery, Taigam's Scheming, Replication Technique
