Mishra, Artificer Prodigy Discussion

Brudiclad needs 2 things to function token-wise: Lots of tokens, and good tokens (usually token creatures). You want a lot of tokens that can then become your good tokens. Bear this in mind when making cuts and additions.
I'm seeing your proportions of your deck are a little skewed. Your land is very light...even the most competitive and low-curve decks have more mana than you're running. I would start with about 35-37 lands depending on how our final average CMC and included mana rocks look.
Remember your core strategy: you want tokens. You have so many planeswalkers (and a few other cards like It That Betrays ) that don't help that. Those are the first things I'd cut to make more useful tokens. Check out cards that allow you to 'turn' non-tokens into tokens you can use. Things like Cackling Counterpart and/or Feldon of the Third Path .
Your deck needs a few more cards to boot. A commander deck has 100 cards in it, including your commander.
Final note: You cannot play Mishra, Artificer Prodigy in this deck...Bruidclad does not have black mana in it's identity.
It will also help people make suggestions for your deck if you move the list out of the Maybeboard and into the 'main' part of the deck, so we can look at mana curve, etc.

The reason why Mishra, Artificer Prodigy might be ranked so high, could be due to its colour identity. Grixis has a mostly commander independent strategy (storm and Demonic Consultation + Thassa's Oracle for example) which by itself is a high powered strategy. Second IF you build Mishra, Artificer Prodigy using storm in mind with Possibility Storm this might result in a reasonably strong deck. Stronger than those of lower categories at least.
So, I believe the reason Mishra is placed so high is mostly due to the inherent strengths of its colour identity, which enable stronger decks even if the commander does not enhance said strategy

@Coward_Token: As the title says, it's jank, slow and a gamble. It looks very fun but not like "high power edh" This is about who's the best commander and whether Mishra, Artificer Prodigy is stronger than Sliver Hivelord / Edgar Markov. And he just isn't.

In your opinion, are Sliver Hivelord & Edgar Markov (two of the strongest tribal commanders ever) as bad as Lorthos, the Tidemaker & Ryusei, the Falling Star and besides that they should be weaker than Pianna, Nomad Captain & Mishra, Artificer Prodigy (I don't understand why Mishra is ranked so high in a singleton format !? he is at most tier 7...)??
They should be at least Tier 3.
- Exchange Ghost Council of Orzhova with Teysa Karlov, because she's easier to cast, is more versatile and has a lot more combo potential.
- Exchange Haktos the Unscarred with Winota, Joiner of Forces (he's maybe even better, like ElRobusto already mentioned), because he's with Feather one of the best Boros commanders at the moment. He's generating a lot of value and he's swarming the board pretty fast!
- Exchange Rasputin Dreamweaver with Braids, Conjurer Adept, why? I mean, c'mon a 6 mana 4/1 with a mediocre effect should be better than cheating in Eldrazis for free protected by counterspells and stuff?? In my opinion she's almost as good as: Jhoira of the Ghitu
- Exchange Slimefoot, the Stowaway with Zaxara, the Exemplary, it should be very obvious why Zaxara is stronger. 1. Colors + Blue means you have all the blue good stuff (counterspells, draw etc) 2. He costs only one additional mana, has Deathtouch and can produce mana and as an additional positive side effect you can create some hydras 3. in these colors Zaxara is incredible easy to break, because you have everything you need, like draw, ramp, removal, recursion, tutor, counterspells, discard etc....
Or do you really think that the commanders I mentioned above are at the same power level as Oyobi, Who Split the Heavens?

^.^ Daveslab2022 thanks, it feels good to be appreciated! I totally agree, Hindsight being 20/20, that change is totally warranted. I was just wanting a Mishra that was less.....shall we say....Human? I like Mishra, Artificer Prodigy but I wanted something a little more EDH friendly, as that's the format I regular.

I like what you're going for with the Bitter Ordeal, but perhaps try switching it out for Saheeli's Directive. I have directived for exactly X=42 and completely blew out my game, but you could can realistically do that for X=20 or 25, depending on how many artifact cards are huddled about the top of the deck.
Also, Dagsson is way too slow. By the time you can cast him, removal is already too heavy to be able to get him to stick. I would take a more sneaky value-train approach with Sai, Master Thopterist, but that's just me.
Also there's these really great lands from the Battlebond set that enter tapped unless you have two or more opponents. I think you might be able to adjust your mana base even more with those. Sea of Clouds, Morphic Pool, and Luxury Suite are the ones you want to look at.

Vanguard's w/ 1 mtg card
- Barrin, Master Wizard
- Maraxus of Keld
- Hanna, Ship's Navigator
- Orim, Samite Healer
- Selenia, Dark Angel
- Starke of Rath
- Eladamri, Lord of Leaves
- Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary
- Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa
- Sliver Queen
- Mishra, Artificer Prodigy
- Serra the Benevolent
- Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice
- Titania, Protector of Argoth
- Urza, Lord High Artificer (unless you count the Uncard)
- Xantcha, Sleeper Agent
So there's quite a bit to go on there... your guess is as good as any. Core 21 is Teferi based so I would say Sidar Kondo has a good chance.
