Hey guys thank you for the suggestions!

king-saproling Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't read Behind the Scenes as well as I should have before adding it. That's a shame, although I did add Obelisk of Urd in it's place. Also totally agree with you on Icon of Ancestry , added that as well. I'll keep the rest in mind!!

carpecanum Whoa those are some neat cards. Bubble Matrix could definitely get some real good use, as would Stoneforge Masterwork . If there's anything else I end up removing from what's currently in the mix, I'll definitely be adding those two next.

YamishiTheWickedOne Great suggestions...I like Obelisk of Urd a ton since it will be almost always free when I cast it. I'll definitely consider them and test them out!

Other things off the top of my head...

Equipment tutors, because this strategy lives and dies by skullclamp. Stoneforge Mystic , Enlightened Tutor and Open the Armory and Steelshaper's Gift come to mind.

Various lords. Take your pick. Vamps have a ton. I wanna mention Sanctum Seeker for the life drain and there was some Orc or something who had a similar effect.

Nameless Inversion . it's a creature hate spell that counts as "casting a vampire".

Obelisk of Urd . easy buff, use once you're done with clamp.

Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle . This deck is hyper aggressive and swarms the board with attackers like nothing else in EDH. He gives you more free creatures.

Bloodcrazed Paladin as an out against boardwipes.

Yahenni. He's actually good in this format just as a hard to kill beater.

I'm sure I can come up with more ideas. I like the deck a lot.

Coastal Piracy should be in the deck, just for the sake of flavor. Obelisk of Urd seems rather mundane, and could probably be dropped. Is there any reason in particular that you are running Arcane Adaptation ? I think Treasure Map  Flip should go in, to, for flavor, and it seems a bit more useful.

Unlike Relentless Rats , Rat Colony frees you up to be able to use more different rats while still keeping the core of the deck intact. Rats like Pack Rat , Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni , and Throat Slitter could be good includes although I understand if you feel this is too much of a move away from a rat colony deck. In addition, a few generic Tribal cards to increase the toughness of your rats could really help. Coat of Arms is really good but it affects everything and turns the board into a mess of math, Obelisk of Urd is much simpler on the board while still keeping your precious rodents from being killed by a single chump blocker.

First of all, I would replace Angelic Gift With either Gryff's Boon or Rancor , just like you said in the description. Why? Because Rampage of the Clans would destroy it, and it gets returned to your hand/battlefield whatsoever. Then, I would highly recommend a few copies of Collected Company , since it can be cast in an opponent's turn. Did it occur to you that red als also some great centaurs? For example, Burning-Tree Shaman , Stonebrow, Krosan Hero , Nikya of the Old Ways and Fanatic of Xenagos . Utopia Sprawl is in my opinion better than Verdant Haven . Then there's Conclave Cavalier , which is totally bonkers, although that strategy would not be effective when running Collected Company . Rosemane Centaur is also a good addition, but mainly if you run lower CMC creatures. And even though Genesis is not a centaur, flavourwise it would be a nice addition to this list. Maybe one copy of Fated Intervention for some instant-speed pressure. Tribalwise, I would highly recommend Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton to replace the Stoneforge Masterwork , and you can even sacrifice them to Rampage of the Clans , for more value/pressure. Maybe a Mirror Entity to boost your crew in mid/lategame? If your having trouble getting the right creatures at the right time, maybe Eladamri's Call would be a nice tutor in this list. For fun, I would maybe even run a copy of Descendants' Path . You could also add some artifacts that suit nicely in any tribal deck. Think of cards like Icon of Ancestry , Obelisk of Urd , Bow of Nylea , Eldrazi Monument or maybe even Coat of Arms . Maybe even add a Selesnya Signet for fixing. All artifacts which you can even sacrifice to Rampage of the Clans . Also consider some Changelings, since they're basically just Centaurs... Chameleon Colossus . You could also add Oath of the Ancient Wood , if you're planning on running this amount of enchantments/auras. Then there's lands. I realize you want to keep this list budget, that's ok, in your case I would still run several Canopy Vista , Fortified Village , Temple of Plenty , Mutavault (which is a centaur), or Oran-Rief, the Vastwood . Chronicler of Heroes goes nicely with Lagonna-Band Trailblazer . Centaur Omenreader is also a pretty solid card by simple making your creatures cost 2 less when it's tapped. You also need cardadvantage. Think of cards like Harmonize . Also, in this meta, you'll need some hard removal. Think of cards like Dismember , Path to Exile , Generous Gift or Beast Within . You can also consider some allround lords and anthem effects. Maybe cards like Wilt-Leaf Liege , Always Watching , Glorious Anthem , Gaea's Anthem , Radiant Destiny , Hall of Triumph , Force of Virtue , Beastmaster Ascension or Collective Blessing . Maybe even a Song of Freyalise ? Yet again, all cards you can eventually sacrifice for Rampage of the Clans . You could even add some retrieval in this list, think of cards like Noxious Revival , Regrowth or Eternal Witness . Sideboard wise, I would highly recommend cards like Rest in Peace , Stony Silence , Dryad Militant , Krosan Grip , Damping Sphere , Grafdigger's Cage , Leyline of Sanctity .

This is it for now. When anything relevant comes up, I will let you know.

Keep up the good work.
