This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.

Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.

The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.

How is Pentad Prism working, could it be swapped for a different mana rock or is the explosive power too good.

So a weird Liquimetal Coating list.

Saheeli, Sublime Artificer / Surge Node / Everflowing Chalice / Astral Cornucopia is a decent charge counters shell. Shrapnel Blast might offer you somewhat better burn.

Shrine of Burning Rage exists and is playable in budget burn lists as a finisher already while Golem Foundry and Lightning Coils let you attack on the ground.

Proliferate spells remove a lot of clunkiness too, while Pentad Prism goes a long way to fixing budget manabase clunkiness.

Best of luck with the brew.

There's really no point to Arcbound Ravager or Walking ballista in Emry decks. They make the deck's play patterns and draws much less consistent and the deck already has massive issues against any deck with any decent amount of interaction or disruption. Jund, Eldrazi Tron, and Burn pretty much all smash the Emry concept at the moment and these are probably the 3 most common decks in the meta. An Emry deck certainly can't afford to sacrifice consistency of it's turn 2 wins to apply the type of plan you're working toward. I've tried a number of different things with Emry decks at this point and the best bet is to play Paradoxical Outcome and Urza lines in tandem with Emry. This gives the concept a solid mid range line to take with huge constructs, a sort of storm line to take based on the Outcome options, as well as the Emry lines being slightly enhanced in terms of being able to be found much more consistently after turn 2 and 3 when the deck doesn't have an ideal opener.

Force of Negation is probably a must run 4x card to at least have some degree of protection given how vulnerable this deck's primary game plan is, Pentad Prism is amazing at being a mana fixer, ramp, and crazy good synergy with Outcome lines as it's mana positive post bounce with Urza in play, and win conditions should be something simple like a single Elixir of Immortality and a Pyrite Spellbomb . Looped spellbombs win the game, looped Urza casts make an infinte army of constructs (Nexus of Fate usually being the way those decks assure themselves of getting the combat step they need without access to haste, although there are options to give haste to creatures that are viable as well), and non summoning sick Emry's on a board where the opponent has no blocker wins, some variants run a singleton Lab Maniac. No need for Ballista or Ravager in the game plan at all when it only detracts from optimal deck operation. I've tried the concept with and without cantrips and to be honest the concept performs better without them at all and instead relying on Outcome lines if it has to find a win.

Fractured Identity seems real good here. Also Spark Double copying your general works like Paradox Haze. You might like these too: Pentad Prism , Lightmine Field , Angel's Trumpet , Pyromancer's Swath , Overwhelming Splendor .

Starke of Rath seems reeeeal risky. My guess is whoever gets him will kill Zedruu.

I have a few more suggestions for you.

Ramp: Drop any mana rocks like Commander's Sphere that cost but only add and Gilded Lotus. These aren't helping you ramp quickly into anything. Replace the 4 of them with Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Creativity , and Pentad Prism . I'd also find room for Coalition Relic and Worn Powerstone .

Look into a few auras for getting Narset through safely. Aqueous Form , Spirit Mantle , and Steel of the Godhead are your best options.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty
