I'm writing this out to make sure it tracks properly.

Setup: Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro in play, Harmonic Prodigy in play, Vampire Nighthawk equipped with Thornbite Staff in play.

1: Pay and tap Nighthawk to deal 1 damage to something, killing it with deathtouch. Staff puts a triggered untap on the stack, Prodigy copies the untap.

2: First untap resolves. Sachi lets Nighthawk tap for . Copied untap resolves.

End point: You now have floating and all creatures untapped, so you can repeat this process indefinitely.

Am I tracking this correctly? And is there a more efficient way to go through the process?

Ey dude, where's Macar? Maybe play some more vehicles?

Very cool list nonetheless. Thornbite Staff and Umbral Mantle are great with Macar. Also, cards such as Springleaf Drum and the new Siege Zombie are useful to tap your commander without attacking.

PolarisFluff: Cabal Coffers was originally a budget concern, but with the reprinting in MH2 it is now within the price range I am looking for. I have swapped it in for Myriad Landscape.

I play tested Bolas's Citadel in this deck for a long time and it never performed to the level I had hoped. It was severely out classed by other cards in that cmc range like Thornbite Staff, Vanquisher's Banner, Thrumming Stone, even Disciple of Bolas.

Two cards that are good with commanders with Tap-abilities are Umbral Mantle and Thornbite Staff. I also imagine Jhoira's Familiar to be quite useful here. Thran Dynamo is another powerful mana rock to copy, and Myr Retriever is great in most decks that run more than the usual mana rocks. Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots seem important for both haste and protection for Osgir. Finally, Lodestone Myr seems to have some potential with your deck.

I wish you the bestest of fun with the deck!
