Planeswalker — Saheeli
+1: Scry 1. Saheeli Rai deals 1 damage to each opponent.
-2: Create a token that's a copy of target artifact or creature you control, except it's an artifact in addition to its other types. That token gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.
-7: Search your library for up to three artifact cards with different names, put them onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

- question about revolt
- so with the saheeli rai and felidar guardian heres a playing the combo and trigger announcing
- Does saheeli Rai's -2 work with Gonti's Aether Heart?
- If Saheeli Rai targets a tapped Felidar Guardian does the copy enter the battlefield tapped?

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.

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.

12 lands seems a little low (even for a restore list (I tend to go for around 15-16 and 12-16 post. If found that much more in the other direction and I was mulling alot.
If your going for a colossus game plan, I'm a big fan of Saheeli Rai and felidar guardian as an alt and saheeli makes 2 colossus which is lethal but also digs you into the deck and has a alt wincon with copy cat combo.

Hey boydb thanks for the suggestions!
About Heat Shimmer and Minion Reflector , at first i thought they would work, since the text was updated in Gatherer, but i think you're right, that "AND" is the problem and sadly the tokens will go away at the end of my opponents next turn.
Oh boy, i was searching for cards to build an Obeka copy instant/sorcery and that Aria of Flame fits like a glove, really nice.
By the way, that explanation about the triggers that you added to your Myriad Obeka descripton will probably help some people, well done :)

Generally a mana rock is considered 1/2 of a land to count toward your land total. They're tricky because people can blow them up, and you need mana to even play them in the first place (feels really bad to have a Commander's Sphere in hand and only ever get 2 lands). So I try not to skimp too hard on lands for them. Or anything really.
As for planeswalkers, you could certainly pick more than 2. There are a lot of artifacts-matters planeswalkers out there! Karn, Scion of Urza makes a really good token for Brudiclad to copy, and helps with card advantage, so he's a favorite of mine. Saheeli Rai is similar. Daretti, Scrap Savant is probably my favorite of them all for any deck.
There is no real ratio that fits every deck. But there are some guides out there that explain waaay better than I can. If you have some time, check these out:

I can think of a way to do it with this spell X=5, no cards in hand, no permanents on board, no floating mana. Also a way with this spell X=4, no cards in hand, two mana sources one that produces white on board, and no floating mana; or X=3, no cards in hand, no permanents on board, and floating.
All scenarios are abusing PW that tutor to search for other cards that do the actual kill. Either infinite mana into Walking Ballista ( Elspeth Tirel , Ajani, the Greathearted , Xenagos, the Reveler , Garruk Relentless Flip, Tezzeret the Seeker ) or the Copy Cat combo ( Garruk Relentless Flip, Elspeth Tirel , Saheeli Rai , and either the 4 mana or the 2 sources and Teferi, Temporal Archmage ).

I'm definitely not up to date with the cEDH meta, but I have a few suggestions that I think are just better cards:
You definitely should be running more interaction, especially in these colors. I'd recommend trying to fit in at least some of the following: Swan Song , Force of Negation , Flusterstorm , Mental Misstep , Opposition Agent , Pyroblast , Red Elemental Blast . If I had to make cuts, I'd start with the Mycosynth Lattice / Nevinyrral's Disk combo, which is slow; Open the Vaults and Refurbish since you don't have much self-mill to make these a speedier option for getting a combo out; and either the Time Sieve / Thopter Assembly combo because it's slow or the Felidar Guardian / Saheeli Rai combo because you don't have many ways to find it and neither piece is especially useful on its own.
I hope this helps! In general I think paring down the list to support 1-2 combo lines using Breya, then shoring up the protection for that combo, will serve you well.

Cool deck, love me some Izzet decks.
I can’t remember if the deck comes with Metalwork Colossus or not, but it could be nice here.
