Awesome suggestions everyone! I've been messing around with a wonky Kynaios and Tiro build that tries to let my opponents play all their big spells Show and Tell style. Things like Braids and Tempting Wurm in the deck, keeping me alive to enable them.

Omniscience_is_life Akim, the Soaring Wind Zombies sounds HILARIOUS.

Peoyogon Chandler with some Illusionist's Bracers effects is EXACTLY the type of thing I'm looking for.

seshiro_of_the_orochi I'd love to do something in simic using Panglacial Wurm and Fblthp, the Lost type stuff.

Very funny, if anyone chooses to put Reclamation Sage into play with your starting Show and Tell, but if not, I would say - You are pursuing an interesting play style with this deck!

I actually thought of making a deck very much like this, but using 0 cost mana producing artifacts and 0 cost artifact creatures with Polymorph. I imagined Lotus Petal, Mox Opal, land, Memnite turn 1 for a Show and Tell or even Memnite + Polymorph turn 2.

To respond to a few of a I didn't actually answer: I agree that Show and Tell is risky, but all of your infinite combos run on permanents, meaning it possibly worth it. I do not think it should ever be used as ramp, just as that is very advantageous for opponents. I like it here more for the politics. Being 3CMC means Codie can flip into it rather easily of some of the impactful spells. Worst case scenario is you just choose to not cast it,which is okay but not great. I like the idea of it appearing and you asking other players for favors or alliances to cast it because it usually helps them more than you.

Also, Because Codie runs an empty board, alot of easy damage comes our way. To solve this a Codie deck runs extra removal that he has in hand or can cascade into rather comfortably. So if Show and Tell brings out a game killer like Void Winnower , we are equipped to deal with it via our removal.

JCTenor10 thanks for the suggestions and the upvote!

So far 99% of the cards I have considered and included in the deck or mainboard have been only from my unused collection (or a few that looked neat from Strixhaven), so I appreciate the suggestions. I think I did consider Show and Tell briefly, but I figured that the few permanents I might have to choose from are unlikely to stand up to the ones my opponents would get to cheat into play. It's probably worth a try even if just to see how it most often plays out as a test. I suppose at its worst it is just another 3 mana ramp spell for me that also gives an opponent something powerful. It could make for an interesting political card though. What are your thoughts on that?

After watching the Command Zone's review of Codie I've been thinking of trying to get some of the give-Codie's-restriction-to-others cards back into the deck. I had Assault Suit in and it was one of the last few cards to get cut when I was working down to 100. Now I want to try to find some space for it and Fractured Identity . Other cards in my initial consideration were Kiora's Follower and Helm of the Host in order to go after additional Codie triggers.

Great Deck! I've been looking for a good non-gimmicky Codie deck that isn't all Hypergenesis or Living End . Have you considered Jeskai Ascendancy ? It has wonderful synergy with Codie and can infinite really easily. Also it let's you filter out permanents that accumulate in your hand when you have no way to flicker him which also helps your storm count.

Also, because you run with the realistic expectation that you will need to play some permanents to win, what's your opinion on the spells that cheat things in like Show and Tell and Tooth and Nail or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

The Creature Cheat hub exists right now, which generally covers Polymorph , Sneak Attack , Show and Tell , Quicksilver Amulet , and related effects. Does this one work for you?

Rule of Jaw


When rule of Jaw enters the battlefield from your hand, you may cast target spell from your graveyard without paying its mana cost.

Whenever you cast a spell, destroy target creature an opponent controls. Deal damage equal to that creature's power to its controller.

I might want to play this in Show and Tell just for fun, or perhaps a cool tech against some deck
