Cool deck +1

Could use some card draw elements in place of some weaker creatures. Promise of Power ? Ancient Craving ? Syphon Mind .

Could definitely use some single creature protection because your CMDR is gonna take heat for a multitude of reason. I like Cloudshift or Restoration Angel . Those are very synergetic with your cmdr as well as some creatures.

Also think you should weigh the value of some of your treasure token generators and perhaps replace for sac creatures. Demon's Disciple .

-1 Mortician Beetle + 1 Innocent Blood ?

Whip of Erebos is tiiiiiight yo..

Mcat1999, you're absolutely right, Urza's Incubator is definitely a better card to run in this deck than Pearl Medallion. As for Restoration Angel, I don't think that it is a very useful card in this deck as it can only blink non-angel creatures. Thanks for the suggestions!

Pretty simple but if someone casts a Beast Within on my random important non-angel creature, i flash in Restoration Angel and exile the targeted creature. When it confess back into play is it still being targeted by the removal, or would be be treated as a new object?

Also, Changeling Hero, Felidar Guardian, Restoration Angel, Solemn Simulacrum, and Wall of Omens might be useful (once again, if you aren’t already running them). Sorry for all the white cards, I haven’t made a Selesnya flicker deck in awhile.

Mystic and Llanowar Elves are better than Grazer or Caryatid 99% of the time. The only downside is that Mystic and Elves are super easy to kill. That's the only downside, and while it's a big one and keeps them in check, it's not significant enough to make them worse than much else. The only things better than them aren't really good in Pioneer(Deathrite Shaman) or aren't legal(Birds of Paradise, Noble Hierarch, Utopia Sprawl, Wild Growth).

Also, I can definitely see 1x TKS as a tutor target in a Vannifar Pod list. You can run 1 Blast Zone and some Yavimaya Coast as ways to have sources so drawing it isn't a problem. It's a powerful card, and being able to turn any Corridor Monitor or Bounding Krasis into a 4/4 that steals your opponent's best card forever is pretty darn good.

You don't have the support for blinking. If you're going Pod, you can't really be blinking anything. You don't have the slots, and it's a synergy that is only really good if you can jam Restoration Angel or Felidar Guardian, and then you only want 1-2. You can't do either of those here. You can't even use Flickerwisp.

Combat Celebrant isn't a combo with untapping. If you read the text, it says 'if it hasn't exerted yet', which kills comboing.

There's a buttton of synergy in that Pod list.

Let me show you: Thragtusk dies twice to Pod, and so does Murderous Redcap. Restoration Angel retriggers ETBs and resets Redcap. Archangel and Spike Feeder are a combo with each other. Voice dies twice, Finks dies twice. Then you have some utility creatures like recsage and Scooze to be tutored out to hate on specific archetypes.

The only cards that don't have synergy with the main gameplan is the removal.

See, here's what matters:

  • It's a creature, so it's saccable to Pod

  • Has an etb ability so when nabbed with Pod it generates value before being sacced OR

  • it dies twice or has a super relevant ability(scooze) OR

  • is part of the main combo

Whitemane Lion was in one of the first few drafts I made for this deck along with Stonecloaker. I think my reasoning for not including either of them or other bounce creatures is because I'd rather have flicker effects like Restoration Angel, Ephemerate, or Soulherder to get more mileage out of my value creatures without having to recast them.

I don't think I have a copy of God-Eternal Oketra, but I think it'd be worth considering in the future.
