Impostor of the Sixth Pride Discussion

I like this list idea- I'll second the call for mono white - there are cards being printed like Portable Hole that fill universal removal holes, the rest should get there.
Youthful does a lot, Serra Avenger is worth some testing if you can vial it out, and Speaker of the Heavens plays to the lifegain synergy. Thats it in terms of low cost fairly-early game angels. Luminarch Ascension is dope but not exactly early game.
I just want wizards to print some better 1/2/3 drop angels, or cards that care about angels. Impostor of the Sixth Pride shouldn't be in the competition for a tribe with a card printed in almost every set, and I shouldn't look at human tribal cards to support speaker/bishop synergies.
A 1 drop creature that becomes an angel when X happens, or grants decent stats to angels would go so far. Even an angel Squadron Hawk would do a lot.

If you're willing to deviate from the Angel plan, this deck is screaming for Squadron Hawk . Stalwart is decent, but the rest of the angels here are pretty behind the curve for pauper; you could consider Guardian of the Guildpact , but even that is probably more of a sideboard card. If you're going to stick to angels, I'd strongly advise going mono white; the splash just isn't worth it for a 4-mana 2/2 flyer that you can dump extra mana into to give protection temporarily, generally.
Also: Journey to Nowhere is going to be a better card most of the time over O-ring.
Potion of Healing isn't doing a whole lot, either; it replaces itself, but the deck doesn't have a method of taking advantage of the lifegain. If you're going to stick to a high mana curve, I'd suggest something like Traveler's Amulet , Wanderer's Twig , or Renegade Map - or better yet, just up the land count. 20 is very low with the amount of 4-drops you've got.

What a sweet idea. I would consider adding Selfless Savior because works like Resolute Watchdog, but better since you don't have to spend the additional mana for protection. Plus the art is really cute ... just don't have her read the flavor text though (the feeeeeels).
Also, I know you said you wanted to keep this simple, but maybe just a single copy of Impostor of the Sixth Pride to show a bit of rule bending in magic, since the imposter is "changeling" it is a cat and a dog simultaneously (catdog?) and will trigger Rin and Seri, Inseparable twice. Plus it doesn't hurt that the art is depicting it changing into a cat. Hope this helps.

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.
