Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

I love the idea behind this deck! When I think of GW big butt decks, infect never even crosses my mind. +1 for originality!

You might also want Blightwidow and Grafted Exoskeleton and Shriek Raptor .

I also removed Tine Shrike and Shriek Raptor. They are high costed for their damage, but they have flying. Not sure if I should keep them in or not.

Hi there! First of all +1 for the obscure tribe.

So you mentioned that you are looking for ways beef up the power level of your deck and your focus is bird tokens. I am not sure what your budget considerations are, but here are some suggestions that I think that may help.

Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton both are "birds" and provide a global buff to the rest of the tribe.

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker is a solid way to end the game once he becomes large enough (and he definitely will in a 4 player game).

Phantom Flock can get really out of hand with your proliferate sub-package

Shriek Raptor is another way you can end the game through infect.

Riptide Replicator can create large bird tokens for you.

Some other more utility considerations could be:

I highly recommend running Herald's Horn in any tribal deck as it provides cost reduction and occasional card advantage.

Skullclamp is fantastic in any token deck as a source of card draw. Rhystic Study is also great in blue.

I'd recommend a little more interaction in your deck. Obviously Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Cyclonic Rift and Return to Dust are very good in these colors, but a more tribal centric card is Harsh Mercy. It allows you to save your birds but still removes a majority of you opponent's creatures. Just watch out for other tribal decks.

Distant Melody is a tribal card draw spell similar to Airborne Aid

I hope some of these suggestions help. Good luck deck building!

Steelshaper's Gift is definitely worth mentioning as it it the first half of Stoneforge Mystic for .

If you are going for the otk then you need to take out your useless infect creatures. "What to drop? 9 of your infect creatures. Blight Mamba, Blightwidow, Core Prowler, Corpse Cur, Necropede, Rot Wolf, Shriek Raptor, and Phyrexian Juggernaut."

For optimizing this build, you need to add the stoneforge package. Better put, the Stoneforge Mystic/Stonehewer Giant + Grafted Exoskeleton/sword of x & y/and Batterskull. Integrating these cards into your deck will increase consistency, speed, and resiliency. Yes I see that you already have the exoskeleton...

What to drop? 9 of your infect creatures. Blight Mamba, Blightsteel Colossus, blight widow, Core Prowler, Corpse Cur, Necropede, Rot Wolf, Shriek Raptor, and Phyrexian Juggernaut. These are all underwhelming, and should probably be replaced with stoneforge mystic/hewer giant, 2 swords of x&y, sovereign of lost alara + Eldrazi Conscription, Enlightened Tutor, Regrowth, and Contagion Engine.
