First of all, I really like this deck

So by adding Earthcraft in use with Squirrel Nest will give you another combo

I also think Nut Collector , Wolverine Riders , Tyvar Kell , Second Harvest , Parallel Evolution , Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Panharmonicon and Presence of Gond are worth a look

I was looking at running Conspiracy naming squirrels to open up the use of cards like Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and Ophiomancer but really not sure

Everdawn Champion and Seraph of the Sword seem like perfect blockers. Other cards like Hundred-Handed One and Watcher in the Web . Also theres cards like High Ground and Brave the Sands help out big time as well. Someone mentioned Stuffy Doll I think that's a great one. Someone mentioned Guardian of the Gateless that card and all the cards that allow you to block multiple creatures go great with Godsend . Theres so many great blockers. Someone mentioned Ophiomancer , that's a fantastic suggestion.

There are lots and lots, but a few I like are Ophiomancer , Spellskite , Selfless Spirit , and Permeating Mass . Higher cost cards like Palisade Giant and Guardian of the Gateless are fine, too.

AkaAkuma Thanks for the love!

Tayam is a super versatile commander in that there's SOOOOOOO many different ways to build him! Originally, I was gonna build 3cmc Superfriends, with just value creatures and stuff in the mix. Then it turned into an Ophiomancer / Pawn of Ulamog style value/token/aristocrats deck where the fun stuff was all 3cmc. It wasn't until I found the card Squandered Resources that I figured out the Piranha Marsh kill and fell in love with how weird it was. I think the beauty in Tayam is just HOW MANY different iterations of feasible deck ideas there are because of how open ended it is. You can build the deck with no combos and I bet you'd have a great and still very valid deck on your hands!

I'd love to see -1/-1 counters variant! The support is there! And I never even considered the enchantress style, but that sounds SICK!!!!

It's very easy to go too far and make Tayam this bland combo-graveyard deck by leaning a lil too hard into it, so at least with my list I tried to build it in a way that even if all the combo pieces were removed the deck still can function as a tokens-counters shell c: I left out stuff like Hermit Druid to avoid that kinda "too far" strategy. I also left out alot of the best tutors for this reason too. If you're playing for the combo kill, more often than not you'll get the win with the combo, but if you don't think the combo is ready, you can switch gears and play for value and bodies and it works just fine!

And what my playgroup thinks of the deck... we're a bunch of shitlord's honestly and we tend to play some very rude strategies, so usually no ones upset about getting combo'd off, cause they would've probably tried the next turn anyway lol. I wouldn't recommend a list like mine to anyone playing with people who might still be learning or are playing "weaker" decks. It can be a bit much, and sometimes in a very do or die situation, you might take a pretty long turn while you wheel and deal with Tayam's ability or count dice and counters on your stuff.. But other than that, I find it to be SUPER fun to play and nobody has hated on me for playing it!

Tayam in general feels more like a surprise ever time you activate him because you never know whats coming off the top of the library, which leads to less linear play and generally more fun in games. That can be changed if you want to up the competitiveness of the deck, but you don't gotta c: It all comes down to you and your group, and Tayam offers a very cool design than can be used for MANY different styles and groups.

The world is your oyster! Whatever you build will end up a really sick deck, so link me if you happen to go through with it!

Hey BransBranflakes, I like the list! Thanks for the inspiration.

I play Tayam in the 98 with Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan at the helm. But Tayam is so synergistic in there that i want to put him into the spotlight with his own deck.

But the further i read on Tayam, the more bland he becomes with the same infinite combos between Ashnod's Altar and various creatures you noted (and Weaponcraft Enthusiast ). What is your experience on the diversity of Tayam and people who play against it? Is it the same song and dance with this commander every game, or can you win on different matters?

The ability got me with so many ideas.. I mean its nothing like Karador! First I was thinking of going tokens with a sacrifice subtheme. I could use Teysa, Orzhov Scion that can also create white tokens from the black tokens that e.g. Dreadhorde Invasion or Ophiomancer create. It will be an endless loop!.. Or landfall, as Tayam can make some cool land recurring triggers using Evolution Sage , Felidar Retreat and many more landfall critters. He also makes a cool Abzan coloured Enchantress (recurring Animate Dead or Pernicious Deed while drawing cards from Setessan Champion and enchantresses alike and even a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons subtheme sounds good, where Ammit Eternal , Devoted Druid and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician are great inclusions.

Nice deck! I'd suggest Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools for Villis,Broker of Blood so as to lower your CMC

As on point Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is for theme, I do believe I'd cut it for No Mercy .

I use Ophiomancer for token generation, as well as Bitterblossom . Sifter of Skulls works well with creatures dying and same with Pawn of Ulamog .

I also built Yawgmoth, Check out The Good Dr. , but did go the way of life loss for creature death. Hope those ideas help!

Thank you very much your feedback and suggestions.

I really plan to cut out Breeding Pit and Aphemia, the Cacophony , I just feel I need more token factories and those are my only possibilities right now. Ophiomancer and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are brilliant cards for my deck, unfortunately I don't have money for them right now.

Ghoulcaller Gisa is a good call, but I really won't have big power creatures, I could sacrifice only 0-1-2 power creatures, and for 5 mana it's too much from a creature without ETB effects.

I don't want Glaring Spotlight and Daring Fiendbonder in my deck, since these cards are for attack support. I don't feel like attack at all with this deck. Probably all my creatures will defend my health and my PW's and they will be sacrificed before the summoning sickness wears off.

I made some changes tho, some cards arrived, what I ordered previously: Sword of the Animist instead of Sword of Body and Mind

Crypt Ghast instead of Solemn Simulacrum

and I took off some "targeted removals" for more Damge//Gain Life effects like: Blood Artist , Bontu's Monument and Vindictive Vampire
