All the processor cards from BFZ like Wasteland Strangler like exiled stuff and also a few creatures can be repeatedly cast from exile if you are exiling your own cards like Torrent Elemental , Misthollow Griffin and Eternal Scourge . Happy gathering!

Hey, Coward_Token! Sorry I've been so lax in posting updates here. I've switched to Archidekt for my primary list tracking, purely because it's easier to modify on-the-go through my phone!
I don't have quite so much artifact hate in the list anymore, and tend to focus on my own lines rather than worry too much about anyone else's. With Yarok floating around now, I'm happy with the creature killers current punch.
You nailed it; Torrent Elemental existed purely as way to alpha strike that could never be removed. Alas, it just never proved fruitful. Good in theory, mediocre in practice.
Speaking of, I'm also fairly disappointed at Finale of Devastation 's lack of value in this particular list. Every time I had it, it never worked the way I wanted to! As a tutor, recursion piece, AND potential wincon all in one card, I was ridiculously excited for it only to have it flop 3

UPDATE: I need 23 cards cut for the strict amount of 100. However, this time around, there will be new rules exclusive to this deck for chopping:
1: Key pieces will not be cut regardless of Binary Speech or any kind of Tongue, verbal, physical, data, or some fourth way that doesn't exist. The Key pieces are:
- Runic Repetition
- Pull from Eternity
- Squee, the Immortal , Misthollow Griffin , Eternal Scourge , & Food Chain
- Necropotence & Bag of Holding
- Torrent Elemental
- Void Maw
- Any card w/ Flashback that is especially great here.
2: I actually need some ideas for an Exile Based Doomsday Package; & all while keeping this balanced.
3: I actually wanted to revise the Landbase; Not for the 10/10/10 method, or the one I already presently have here, but from a way that I actually have not used at least twice now for Five Color.
4: I dunno if it'll work, but how does Animate Dead + Worldgorger Dragon work? Or is there a combo that fits this deck's purpose moreso; Exiling powerful cards just to bring them back through means of Exile Retrieval.
5: Not all the Flashback cards are good, I can acknowledge this for sure. So what aren't pulling their weight?
And that's it, actually. I'll add a Dragon, & a Maw after this post. I just need a combo for Worldgorger Dragon that complements this deck's themes, & the Doomsday Package centering on pure exile. Now I have one more job to do...

@bushido_man96: Don't get me wrong, the card kicks butt in a pinch. Although losing one life may not be so bad, basically having an Exiling Engine for spells means so few cards exist for this. But we've a problem w/ this as well; Riftsweeper is the only card in Simic's colors to use Exile Manipulation. Pull from Eternity is , Torrent Elemental wouldn't work as it only affects itself, Mirror of Fate is even worse as it's a worse Doomsday for 7 Exiled cards; but the rest of the library dies beyond death; Runic Repetition only works on Flashback spells, & Misthollow Griffin ? Not even what this deck wants. In such a case, this deck would need Void Maw ; but this isn't Sultai ; this is Simic.
Sorry for not limiting my post to 180 Unicode characters, but I was trying to do a supplemental explanation about this whole thing. Basically, all we have is Riftsweeper , but there are not enough stuff that can utilize exile retrieval as a target for that damned Elf Shaman. UNLESS... Unless I cut Rashmi for her, & find more effects that Exile themselves after use. THEN we can start cutting the quarks, & leptons; the smallest form of matter in our ethereal everything.
Apology No. 2 for going even further than before. Yeah, "Tell Obi-Wan: "I failed."" -Yoda after losing a fight with Darth Sidious
I'll contemplate Force of Will for now, until then, though, you literally made me want to do a deck focusing on Exile Retrieval; W/O Atraxa in the first place. Yep an actual Partners Commander Deck; but which two to use, I ponder...

Could arguably replace one of the creature killers with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician
What's the deal with Torrent Elemental without a Food Chain combo? Graveyard hate resilience?

The deck looks great but you unfortunately can't play Torrent Elemental as it's color identity doesn't match the color identity of your oathbreaker (the activated ability requires black and/or green mana).

Thanks, it's pretty fun when it works. Unfortunately Torrent Elemental doesn't get a discount from Training Grounds or Biomancer's Familiar since you don't "control" it unless it's on the battlefield. I do also want to keep the number of non-spells in the sb low for Pteramander's ability, and Torrent Elemental isn't quite good enough to replace any of the creatures in the main deck.
