colind123 thanks for the suggestion! I've added it to the list and have taken out Thran Turbine . Your idea was definitely a better use of resources.

Thoughts on Thran Turbine for this deck? Cheap and seems to have great synergy with the commander

i'm not really a capacity on CEDH, since i too mostly play casual, but i would try perhaps Thran Turbine and/or Training Grounds , perhaps even Heartstone . All of them help making Urza's ability much more cheaper and could effect other creatures as well e.g. Walking Ballista , Voltaic Construct , ... possibly enabling even more combos

My immediate thought with utilizing the Bros efficiently was to emphasize artifact creatures (ex. Goblin Replica ) and enchantment creatures (ex. Courser of Kruphix ) so you could always have options on what to sacrifice to answer a problem. You have the creature portion covered completely but I honestly cannot see you wanting to sacrifice any of your enchantments without also hurting yourself.

Most options to make expendable enchantment tokens are not great, like Pharika, God of Affliction , but some like Renowned Weaver could be viable because, again, it gives you options on what you want to sacrifice.

Bros' cost is also kind of expensive so ways to reduce it or generate more mana (you are in ) will allow multiple activations if need be. Heartstone and Thran Turbine come to mind to reduce their cost and Burnished Hart , Wild-Field Scarecrow , Solemn Simulacrum , Skittering Surveyor and Pilgrim's Eye are great early game to fix your mana while late-game you can sacrifice them to either ability.

You mentioned reanimation in the description so some more options are Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , Phyrexian Delver , Oath of Ghouls , Palace Siege , Entreat the Dead , Feldon of the Third Path , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist .

I would also consider other sacrifice options so in case you do not need to activate Bros you can still generate value via sacrificing your tokens or creatures. Altar's Reap and Costly Plunder for card advantage, Sidisi, Undead Vizier to tutor, Priest of Forgotten Gods for multi-value, etc.

You have the protective-footwear covered but I would consider adding Spider Umbra and Kaya's Ghostform so you can protect or sacrifice them if need be. Other personal favorites of mine are Undying Evil and Supernatural Stamina .

Looks nefariously "fun!"

Odd, just got done looking at a different Xantcha deck...

Well, I recommended Theater of Horrors there so will do so here as well. Activating her ability lets you play the cards exiled by the Theater cheaper than if you used the Theater's innate damage dealing plus now you're effectively drawing 2 cards per activation. Also has the added bonus that the exiled cards aren't in your hand to be hit by your universal discard spells.

An interesting inclusion the other deck had was Thran Turbine … a cheap way to fuel your commander's draw ability as long as you remember to activate during upkeep. May be worth looking at.

If you can find one, upgrading Murder to Hero's Downfall or Bedevil should be well worth it.

Neheb, the Eternal could be good here as he would fuel multiple activations of Xantcha's card draw or power up Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire

Looks like fun! How about Thran Turbine for free mana to use with the boss? Hail Hydra!
