Zaknod on Budget Multiplayer Creatureless Kaho

Thank you for the suggestions BrassLord!

The reason why I don't have Polymorph and Proteus Staff, is because if I have a target to Polymorph, it can only be Kaho, Minamo Historian (aside from a Resculpt token, but that is marginal), and at that point, I had the opportunity to tutor Reweave anyway, so unless I'm missing something, those two would be dead cards in the deck!

The turns spell idea is pretty interesting, the largest concern that I have is that I don't have many permanents that generate value, so the turn spell by itself could end up underwhelming. I certainly have the mana to support it though, so I'll try it out and play around with it!

I run a Charix deck that also has a Polymorph theme! Polymorph and Proteus Staff are both ways to get the tidespout tyrant out from your deck!

Might be stretching the budget, but you already have most of the parts. An isocron scepter imprinted Narset's reversal turns into infinite turns when you pair it with any take extra turn spell.

Commander product time

Elouise, Nephalia Sleuth: Meh, I feel it's a bit overcosted. But sure, you can probably fill your graveyard quite rapidly with misc. token sacrifice

Cleaver Skaab: Anyone read Pact?

Crowded Crypt: no boring nontoken clause here! Not a bad finisher for aristocrats decks.

Hordewing Skaab: Curse of the Restless Dead: kinda situational but more anti-landfall is nice

Curse of Unbinding: I was excited until I saw the mana cost. Oh well, at least it's funny against those Polymorph/Proteus Staff decks

Prowling Geistcatcher: extra funny with Gisa, Glorious Resurrector and other thieves

Kyler, Sigardian Emissary: Sigarda is hope. Sigarda is love. Memes aside, people-elfball is getting more viable

Somberwald: I'm dissapointed that this is the only Wolf token maker in the product. Overcosted too.

Curse of Clinging Webs: I'm just glad Spider tribal is getting something, even if this feels more black

Celebrate the Harvest: I feel Harvest Season is way easier to abuse

Wall of Mourning: Not Bob but not bad either. Gogo flicker.

Stalwart Pathlighter: meh, there's already Frontline Medic

Moorland Rescuer: Not too bad even if black can do this way more efficiently. Gogo pumping

Fblthp is a great addition for that. I think if you're going Simic, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary would be the perfect catch. This would enable Lurking Predators, as well. And there is a way to cheat Proteus Staff, as well.

Just flash in some mono-green creature in response to your opponent casting a spell while you have Lurking Predators.(Vedalken Orrery?)

FalconForce on Staring Contest: A List of Blink-Effect Cards

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Token clone makers

Stolen Identity Blade of Selves Mirror Mockery Zndrsplt's Judgment Repudiate / Replicate Hour of Eternity Supplant Form Dance of Many Minion Reflector Bramble Sovereign Progenitor Mimic Anointed Procession Quasiduplicate Rhys the Redeemed Back from the Brink Dual Nature Mimic Vat Rite of Replication Song of the Worldsoul Helm of the Host Doubling Season Parallel Lives Battle for Bretagard Mechanized Production Orvar, the All-Form Prototype Portal Saheeli, the Gifted Saheeli's Artistry Seance Second Harvest Soul Foundry Spitting Image Splinter Twin Replication Technique Saheeli Rai Mirror March Mirrorworks Molten Echoes Mythos of Illuna Sublime Epiphany Flamerush Rider Felhide Spiritbinder Littjara Mirrorlake God-Pharaoh's Gift Hofri Ghostforge Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Followed Footsteps Nightmare Shepherd Osgir, the Reconstructor Echo Storm Cackling Counterpart Esika's Chariot Feldon of the Third Path Flameshadow Conjuring Trickster's Talisman & of course anything with populate.

Also some other blink type cards:

Blink-Yorion, Sky Nomad Conditional bounce- Cunning Evasion ETB clone- Wall of Stolen Identity Graveyard blink- Cauldron of Souls, Twilight Shepherd, Adarkar Valkyrie ETB Abuse- Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Proteus Staff, Master Transmuter. Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

Last_Laugh on Narset Says "My Turn" *Primer*

Infinites that use creatures aren't very reliable here. If you exile the creature, is the other half worth it still? Conjurer's only other target is Narset and that would remove auras/equipment.

You could even consider dropping EVERY creature and running Proteus Staff. This allows you to stack your ENTIRE deck in the order you want it. I didn't run it personally because I had Generator Servant (only creature I ran).

KuhlThing How do you want to add Proteus Staff? That's a blue card.

Even going to hand or library allows them to redirect their commander to the command zone. You used to be able to get someone's commander lost in their deck with polymorph effects like Proteus Staff , but the current commander rules don't allow this.
