Reflections of Littjara Discussion

Hey, what you have so far is a strong start at upgrading the precon for your first deck, nice Hammer of Nazahn upgrade.
Currently you need to cut 24 cards to get to 100 cards. Some advice is start with cutting some lands because 43 lands is too much. Reduce it to 36 and if you think you need more mana then add more low converted mana cost (CMC) ramp sources or draw sources instead of lands.
Some lands to consider cutting:
All these lands always enter the battlefield (ETB) tapped and you have other lands that always do this too, but those other lands are better than these.
The next cuts to consider are some high CMC cards to reduce the mana curve.
Further cuts are some cards that are not as good as others here or have similar or the same effects.
- Battle for Bretagard
- Fall of the Impostor
- Heirloom Blade
- Reflections of Littjara
- Skyclave Cleric Flip
- Captain's Claws
- Conclave Tribunal
- Moonsilver Spear
- Shielding Plax
- Tangled Florahedron Flip
- Suppression Field
Heirloom Blade and Reflections of Littjara are tribal cards that care about only one type of creature. That's not the strategy here since you have many different creature types. Skyclave Cleric Flip and Tangled Florahedron Flip are double face cards (DFC) that can be lands or played as the front face of the card and that can be helpful. The problem is the front face of the card is not worth playing even though they might be lands. Bala Ged Recovery Flip is an example of a good DFC upgrade since front face is a good card and the bonus is that could be a land.
Suppression Field is a powerful card, but it affects equipment equip costs since that's an activated ability. Even if you control Puresteel Paladin with metalcraft activated you still have to pay 2 mana to equip the equipment to a creature you control. Puresteel will reduce the equip cost to 0, but then Field makes you pay an additional 2 mana to activate the equip ability. If an equipment is in your hand and you cast it or already on the battlefield you can't free equip if you control Field.
You have ways to get around having to pay for equip with attach. Difference is you're not equipping when you attach an equipment to a creature you control. The key word here is attach which bypasses the need to activate equip. You can free attach an equipment with Galea, Kindler of Hope, Halvar, God of Battle Flip or Hammer of Nazahn. With Galea only if you cast an equipment from the top of your library, with Halvar only if the equipment is already equipped to another creature you control and with Hammer only if you cast the equipment or the equipment ETB. Free attach has synergy with Suppression Field, but the interaction is limited.
Good luck with your deck.

In a less competitive play i use Reflections of Littjara, it's double fun. The Cauldron of Eternity does a lot of work in a slow game, eventualy combined with Pulmonic Sliver. It sets your top deck and makes your sliver's tutorable. The combo Psionic Sliver and Spiteful Sliver is a cheap option too.

First of, you’ve got two Dismal Backwaters and two Noosegraf Mobs in there. Acererak the Archlich is an infinite wincon with Rooftop Storm. if you have Poppet Factory flipped with Wilhelt out, Altar of Dementia can mill your opponents to zero. To help you find pieces Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a great zombie to do so. Ebondeath, Dracolich is a great recurrable zombie. Reflections of Littjara can make your toys twice the fun. Boneknitter could also do some work for ya here. Loyal Subordinate will help you do damage if combat gets shut down. Victimize will do you service, and Patriarch's Bidding can help refill your board after a board wipe. Speaking of which, consider Noxious Ghoul and Meathook Massacre can help you clear boards that need an enigma. Hope some of that helps ya. Enjoy zombies!

A "copy legion" themed Sliver deck seems like an awesome idea that I would love to help come into fruition. Copy spells that I think would be all-stars in this deck would be:
- Reflections of Littjara: This card would likely be the heavy lifter for copy effects. It's a triggered ability that only requires you to cast stuff, which you really want to do in this deck.
- Rite of Replication: This is a big splashy spell that can really get your army going. A good target for this spell would be Predatory Sliver, and Muscle Sliver.
- Clone Legion: Seems like a good clone spell
- Double Major: Seems like a good clone spell
- Quasiduplicate: Seems like a good clone spell
- Stolen Identity: Seems like a good clone spell
- Mystic Reflection: This spell is interesting because when changing a creature an opponent casts to a Sliver (like their commander), you could just outright steal it using your commander's second ability.
Additional cards i'd suggest are:
Panharmonicon: Doubling copy triggered abilities always seems like a good idea.
That's it off the top of my head. Honestly i've never seen a copy focused Sliver deck. This seems exciting! I'll be watching your list as it grows and changes.

I understand your point, Reflections of Littjara doesn't really help much in your deck. On the other hand, I'm happy that you considered to add Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer, as it could serve as a good game ender.
I am however confused as to why you don't like activated ability cost redutors, given that your commander has 4 activated abilities which could really benefit from it. Those activated abilities come in handy to do anything, especially drawing cards and recurring creatures from the graveyard, being also a very consistent form of draw engine, given that it is in the command zone for you to cast whenver you need. With 2 cost reductors in play you can draw 1 card for at instant speed, not something to snuff about. If you plan on changing Kenrith, the Returned King for another commander, I agree that those cards would instead be of much less use.

Nice deck! Your curve is medium (avg 3,54) and you produce enough mana with treasures and rocks to compensate for it, so the land count should really be fine. I'd consider adding the remaining 5 Shock lands (like Steam Vents) instead of the taplands you mentioned and you should be good. The only problem you incur in by not having any basic lands is that an occasional Path to Exile, or similar effect, will have you fail to find a basic land in your deck. If the aforementioned circumstance is a worry to you, just add 1-2 basics over the triomes and you're good, else ingore it completely. If you notice a lack of mana in the next few games, consider adding 2-3 lands and try again. It's absolutely not straightforward to round down exactly how many lands a deck needs, take your time. Another set of good lands would be the Battlebond lands, i.e. the ones that enter untapped if you have at least 2 or more opponents, like Bountiful Promenade
As a small addition to my comment: have you considered cards like Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer and Reflections of Littjara? They seem like a good fit in your deck over some cards like Hoarding Ogre and Skullport Merchant. Moreover, another good effect to have would be all the activated ability cost reducers like Training Grounds, Biomancer's Familiar and Zirda, the Dawnwaker, to really enable Kenrith to do a lot more.

Love a good Phyrexian deck! This one's dedication to the flavor is especially impressive, great job here!
I'd suggest trying out some of the "choose a creature type" cards such as Kindred Summons and Reflections of Littjara to take advantage of the newly-implemented Phyrexian creature type that all your creatures share, (okay, most of them at least, poor Consecrated Sphinx) but those cards themselves might be considered rather off-flavor. Hopefully we get some proper Phyrexian tribal support soon!
By the way, a second Tainted Strike seems to have snuck its way in there. If you end up looking for a replacement, Phyresis and Glistening Oil do a similar thing and hold the same thematic resonance, though they're a bit slower and more telegraphed.

bl4ckb0l7 I haven't tested Kindred Summons or Reflections of Littjara, yet. Therefore I can't say anything about their playability. They both seem really strong but are also very expensive cmc-wise. I'd love to hear some feedback on both cards!
Eloniel I really don't like the pathways and I wouldn't run them outside of a 2 color deck. Tapping for 2 different colors is very important, especially during the early game. Also my pods are always 3+, so bond lands are basically just og duals. I would never replace them. There also aren't any fast lands in the deck?! But I understand that the mana base can be very meta dependant, so you should use what suits you and your meta best!
