Hey, you're welcome :)
What's the max budget you have to make card upgrades? When you finish making upgrades what price range can you have for total deck cost? The precon for example at $60 is low and I would hope you could afford at least $50 for upgrades. If you can afford more expensive price cards then my card suggestions will be different then if you can't. Smothering Tithe and Birds of Paradise for example are very good cards for ramp, but they might be too expensive for the budget.
What advice about upgrades would you like?
Some cards from the precon that can be cut since they're not as good as others or don't have good enough synergy with Ghired:
- Blossoming Sands
- Graypelt Refuge
- Kazandu Refuge
- Rugged Highlands
- Cliffside Rescuer: can only protect something once which is not worth it when there's options that can be repeatable.
- Doomed Artisan: these tokens are not worth populating.
- Roc Egg: has to die before it does anything.
- Heart-Piercer Manticore: can be fine as creature removal, but I think there's better options.
- Scaretiller: too slow as ramp or anything else.
- Tahngarth, First Mate: belongs in it's own deck as Commander General.
- Atla Palani, Nest Tender: belongs in her own deck as Commander General.
- Soul of Zendikar: there's better six drops to play.
- Emmara Tandris: there's better seven drops to play.
- Tectonic Hellion: yikes.
- Desolation Twin: too much mana and the token is lackluster with no evasion.
- Commander's Insignia: not a good anthem effect for four mana.
- Full Flowering: this doesn't do anything unless you a lot of mana and a have a token on the battlefield to populate.
- Trostani's Judgment: there's much better lower mana cost options to exile a creature. Getting to also populate is not worth four or five extra mana.
- Soul Foundry: too slow.

This is a great start! You might like these:
Mimic Vat. Interestingly, if you populate a token that was made by Mimic Vat, the populated token stays indefinitely. This is because the new token was not created by the Vat and does not have the same triggers/restrictions tied to it. However, if you populate a token from Minion Reflector, both tokens are lost at end of turn because the creature itself has the text "At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice this permanent." So I recommend Mimic Vat but not Minion Reflector haha.
Similar to Mimic Vat: Twinflame, Flameshadow Conjuring, Helm of the Host, Seance, Feldon of the Third Path, Soul Foundry. These all let you create token copies of your creatures, which can be populated. Imagine having multiple Dragon Broodmothers!
Adorned Pouncer, Anointer Priest, Angel of Sanctions. These are all interesting here because after they have been embalmed/eternalized, you can populate them! Populating tokens with powerful effects like these is much better than making vanilla tokens.

Also after looking into it some more here are some other cards I found: Arcane Artisan , Heat Shimmer , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Kindred Charge , Mirror March , Mirrorpool , Rite of Replication , Saheeli Rai , Soul Foundry , Twinflame , Zndrsplt's Judgment , Splinter Twin
Also I feel like you don't have a whole lot of the really good eldrazi. Obviously you are missing the eldrazi titans, but those cost a lot. Some other suggestions are It That Betrays , Thought-Knot Seer (has an enter the battlefield effect), Deceiver of Form , Breaker of Armies .
You might benefit from having a lot of copies of cards like Platinum Emperion , Platinum Angel or Void Winnower out on the battlefield at the same time, but I would say that deviates from your overall game plan.

Bow of Nylea . If a cat has trample when attacking you only need to burn 1 point as lethal damage and bypass the actual toughness of the creature.

Back again. I just wanted to know just one thing: Timestream Navigator requires her to be at the Bottom of the Library as a cost to make infinite loops of Extra Turns.
From there, Assembly Hall is out; Who has a 2nd copy of any card that's not a Basic, or if the rules text bypasses thus as easily?
So who will it be?
I'd love to know your answer, please respond soon...

Back. Well, I'm still in a pickle for this situation:
A: Throw Timestream Navigator overboard, thus her cut.
B: Keep her as an Infinite Turn Combo; w/ one of the following:
Not counting the Kiki/Twin duo, this is all I can think of. What's the best choice as well as being flavorful? Why I say "Flavorful"? Several users on this site actually wanted this to be as Flavorful as possible. But what is truly good here? Is going Flavorful too much? If so, what line to draw?
