Impostor of the Sixth Pride Discussion

At first glance I thought this was lovely jank, but this is actually kinda crazy with all the lords and anthems. It's like slivers without the slivers (and it's actually the Gemhide Sliver you have that made me realize that lol). It would definitely be fun to pilot, and it's pretty fair to boot so no complaining when you win. ;^)
One thing I would recommend is adding in a lot more ramp through rocks. Your lands are good, but you really need to be able accelerate your mana in order to be able to consistently put your lads out on the field. Perhaps you could take out some of your more innocuous changelings like Impostor of the Sixth Pride, Universal Automaton, and Woodland Changeling in favor of more mana rocks, because realistically you probably don't want to be drawing a basic changeling that doesn't do much on its own. You'd probably much rather draw something like a Sol Ring, or even a Fellwar Stone since you're running 5 colors anyway (you would still need more than just these 2). You'll also probably want more stack interaction through counterspells or cards like Veil of Summer just to make sure your important spells and your commander actually make it onto the field. You might get one game where people underestimate the value you can get out of your commander, but after that people probably aren't going to let you play him without some resistance.
Also, allow me to introduce something potentially degenerate yet fair into this deck that might make it pretty fun if you can build around it. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, if you were to somehow work out a way of consistently finding him, discarding him, and then protecting him, could make this deck very silly lol. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge + Nameless Inversion itself is a pretty good combo, but imagine recurring everything in your deck constantly with a bunch of ETB lol triggers going off every time you do it. If you could streamline that and protect your important combo pieces people wouldn't know if they should hate you because of the unfair value you're getting, or love you because of the nonsense you've managed to pull off. JUST an idea.
I really do love this deck. I had never considered changelings with Reaper King, I don't know why. You've inspired me. :^)

I really dig the Changeling Dragon theme. I've seen this deck, it was fun to watch, and it's neat to see the insides. Do your 1 and 2-drop changelings make a difference? How well have the planeswalkers worked out?
Cards to consider (14): Kindred Dominance, Heirloom Blade, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Blood Tribute, Forerunner of the Legion, Metallic Mimic, Dregscape Sliver, Harmonic Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, and Kindred Discovery. Also with over 40 creatures having more effects that trigger with creatures entering the battle field seem useful: Aura Shards, Cathars' Crusade, Guardian Project, Soul of the Harvest, and Chulane, Teller of Tales.
I don't personally like creatures that reduce costs. I'd rather play a mana dork, or rock. How often do you empty your hand? Would wheel spells be useful? I personally like Lifecrafter's Bestiary. You currently have 16 shapeshifters (w/o Crib Swap, Shields of Velis Vel). I don't know how much you want to play with that number, but I wonder how good some of the cards are (Changeling Outcast, Fire-Belly Changeling, Impostor of the Sixth Pride, Mothdust Changeling, Woodland Changeling).

I've updated the deck by going Orzhov and adding a bunch of cheap white changelings like Impostor of the Sixth Pride , Avian Changeling , and Irregular Cohort . I've also included three copies of Brainspoil to tutor up Liliana's Contract . The deck is now much more consistent overall.

Thanks, chilbi. I tried Crucible in the past and found it to be too awkward but it makes more sense now with Changeling Outcast , Impostor of the Sixth Pride and Valiant Changeling pushing the deck in a more aggressive direction, so I'll test it out again.

These cats may look a bit funny, but I assure you they are cats and might help out a bit :3 Impostor of the Sixth Pride , Universal Automaton , Irregular Cohort , Mirror Entity , Woodland Changeling , Valiant Changeling , Birthing Boughs , and Mirror of the Forebears .

Are you still updating this deck? I really liked your boros articles, and I am trying to use a few tips on my decks.
I have built a Kaalia, Zenith Seeker using these partner as a part of the deck, and I would like to know if you tried upping the number of changelings in this build. Because they always seems to overperform when I have Sylvia and Korvarth. The biggest credit goes to Irregular Cohort and even Impostor of the Sixth Pride .
