Ophiomancer

Creature — Human Shaman

At the beginning of each upkeep, if you control no Snakes, create a 1/1 black Snake creature token with deathtouch.

Archon of Cruelty is an Archon, not a demon, fyi. Baleful Strix does not match your commander's color identity. Ophiomancer Why? Just for blockers? Maybe try Luminarch Ascension instead Yarok, the Desecrated Doesn't match your commander's color identity

I like the Ephemerate I feel like its an underrated card so bonus points for that.

Crow_Umbra I haven't had a chance to playtest Wake the Dead yet but I have always wanted to find a good home for Inkshield so I'll have to test it and see how it plays, great suggestions as always.

Afterlife Insurance and Ophiomancer are at the top of my switch in list, as of now I'm on the side of extra fodder because the decks needs a lot to work. Your Gorgussy deck was also great inspo for some exciting group drain triggers!

Thank you for reaching out Tsukimi, I hope you're well.

Teysa is a classic, and it looks like you've got a really solid foundation going so far, especially utilizing KibaAlpha's deck as a primer.

You have a decent chunk of the cards I was going to recommend either already in your deck, or in your Maybe Board. Maybe you could swap a couple of your redundant 1 or 2 drops for something like Afterlife Insurance, Bloodghast, Ophiomancer, or Warren Soultrader.

I do like the inclusion of Wake the Dead as a cheeky means of getting some of your little goons back for some more death triggers. Maybe you could consider swapping it for Inkshield? I imagine you would probably be paying a pretty similar rate with Wake the Dead, in terms of mana spent, a lot of the time. Could be a more effective means of blanking aggro damage at you, and also setting yourself up with a bunch of tokens to either dome somebody or chuck into one of your aristocrats engines. It's definitely more pricey compared to Wake the Dead.

RiotRunner789, Ophiomancer is a nice card, but I believe that I can use Black Market Connections to generate a token for blocking, if I need to do so; yes, the token does not have deathtouch, but I am not certain if I can make room in this deck for Ophiomancer.

As for the other cards, they are nice, but I again am not certain if I can find a place for them, in this deck, although I certainly do appreciate your suggestions.

Thinking of defense, Ophiomancer could work. It triggers every upkeep, so you should always have a 1/1 death touch blocker. I've found small death touchers tend to give outweighed influence when people determine attackers.

Though, it doesn't directly move your game plan forward. It's about as useful as a Propaganda or Koskun Falls.

Tainted Remedy was in because a deck like this wins after a cascade of opponent life loss triggers. This can be easily disrupted by lifegain on the opponents side. However, y'all are correct in that it doesn't advance my game plan. Chop chop.

Bloodchief Ascension is a pet card. It is also a card that has won me numerous games on its own. It would be easy enough to get 3 counters with Kambal's trigger but again, not directly tied to tokens. Good suggestion albeit a painful one.

Halo Fountain just seemed like a fun and wierd alt-win con but your right that it is slow. It also requires me to have tapped creatures.

Going to take a closer look at the aristocrats support. I cut a lot of the sac outlets earlier which was a good observation. Nadier's Nightblade and Mirkwood Bats will definitely stay but a lot of the others can go. Also, Ophiomancer and Dreadhorde Invasion don't work at the level they should without a sac outlet on the board.

Not sure about Battle Angels of Tyr just yet, since just attacking creates token copies of himself. But he'll be close to the cut list.

Part of the reasoning on the number of board wipes was the number of indestructible options for Kambal. Will cut at least one board wipe tonight.

Refering to Basshunter's commnent, I haven't put the final mana base in just yet but Forbidden Orchard will be in there. Mana bases tend to only take me 5 minutes to build. I have some effects that give tokens to my opponents but I'm leaning more heavily into Kambal's second ability. I've generally been looking at consistent token generation instead of one off effects aimed at my opponents. However, Curse of Disturbance will get another look.

Thank you for all of the comments. It definetly gets me much further to completion.

Hi, imo you need more token creators that create tokens for everyone or for your enemies. You dont need tokens for your own...think about cards like Forbidden Orchard, Hunted Horror, Slaughter Specialist, Curse of Disturbance, Tombstone Stairwell, Clackbridge Troll, Infernal Genesis, Hunted Lammasu, Tribute to Horobi  Flip, Shadrix Silverquill You should cut cards like Ophiomancer, Skrelv's Hive or Bitterblossom
