Instead of Finale of Devastation and Cryptolith Rite, I would drop both for copies of Chord of Calling and Collected Company. Coco hits every single one of your creatures, so I would definitely include 4 and see how it plays out.

Although it's far from optimal, you could run a singleton of Elemental Mastery just as an alternative to Presence of Gond. The closest I could get to Midnight Guard is Captain of the Mists, which doesn't work unfortunately. :(

Another alternative I found for consistency is Intruder Alarm. Unfortunately, you can't tutor it with Heliod's Pilgrim so you could add some Idyllic Tutors as well.

If you want to go Midnight Gond combo, my favorite way to do it has been as a Eldritch Evolution toolbox. t1 Llanowar Elves/Elvish Mystic, t2 Evolution into any 3 drop is pretty good.

From there you have

and some other solid value/silver bullet creatures. You also get Eladamri's Call and Glittering Wish. It's a solid deck that can win t3 with a good draw but is also really good at screwing over your opponent's unfair strategy.

Maybe I should actually build it... I would if I didn't have so many other decks to build xD

Okay so first off, you never want to go more than 60 cards. Ever, for any reason, really. All it does is dilute your game plan and make it harder to draw the cards you want.

What I would recommend is finding the “shell” of your deck. What does your deck want to do? From what I can tell it’s a combo deck focusing on Midnight Guard and Presence of Gond.

So I would get rid of all cards that don’t immediately help you to this end.

My question for you is why you want to make infinite tokens with Midnight Guard but then wipe your whole board with Massacre Girl. Sure, it wipes your opponents board but it gets rid of yours too. Leaving you at square 1, even though you could’ve won the game by attacking with your 1.5 billion tokens.

Isochron Scepter does not work with only 2 copies of the card you want.

If you really want to play isochron scepter and counter spell, build a new deck. Then add Silence.

If you want to win with the Midnight Guard and presence combo just go all in on that. Isochron and counterspell is fun but theres better things you can do. Plus you only have 2 of each and counter spell is your only instant in the deck so iso will be a dead card most of the time. Braid of Fire does nothing in this deck. You have to use the mana during your upkeep from that card.

All your lands come in tapped that will slow you down so much. I'd limit it 2 or 3 colors. You have an infinte mana combo in the deck but no pay off for it. This deck has no focus

Midnight Guard and Presence of Gond create infinite tokens together and work great in this deck, i run it as a cool little token combo, and with Divine Visitation on the board it makes them all 4/4 flying angels

Love it, I've introduced Crashing Drawbridge and Overgrown Battlement to my list to ramp up mana and make the combo Green Elf Warrior tokens swing for lethal one turn faster.

I'm also using Abundant Growth and Prophetic Prism with Kor Skyfisher as a draw engine and sky defense until I find the combo.

I also like Sumala Woodshaper to find combo pieces or a timely Journey to Nowhere and it's a body to throw in front of swarming attackers.

And Pulse of Murasa plays nice in the deck bringing back destroyed Midnight Guard or Ash Barrens or Evolving Wilds, and again buying time with the life gain.

I just playtested a turn 4 win against Tron.

1) Forest, go

2) Plains, play Crashing Drawbridge

3) Forest, play Overgrown Battlement, tap Crashing Drawbridge, tap Overgrown Battlement for 2 mana and play Midnight Guard

4) Play Presence of Gond on Midnight Guard, create infinite Elf Tokens, tap Crashing Drawbridge, swing for lethal.

"Add a Midnight Guard?- He cried; no, no, no."

Anyways- had to get that off my chest somehow. Great build +1.

Awesome deck! Rhys is so fun to play and can get out of control in a hurry! Maybe a few things to consider as well, I've found Champion of Lambholt and Odric, Master Tactician to be extremely useful, making your army unblockable which is great if there's no trample out yet. Also Presence of Gond goes infinite with Midnight Guard for even more token mayhem! Great build! Here's my personal Rhys deck if you're interested: 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens)
