Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor

Legendary Creature — Human Knight

Whenever Varchild deals combat damage to a player, that player creates that many 1/1 red Survivor Creature Tokens

Survivors your opponent control can't block, and they can't attack you or a PW you control

When Varchild Leaves the battlefield, gain control of all Survivors.

Bladehold War-Whip, Drach'Nyen, maybe Demonspine Whip for your first strike/ double strike guys.

Maybe you don't like Changelings? Lots of good ones but especially Mirror Entity could buff your knights, most of whom are pretty small.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor has a neat ability and is a legendary for your cards that only work with legendary.

Maybe Prototype Portal or possibly Mirrorworks

smack80 - I love Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor, and I wish I could run her. but she's a little swingy and aggressive for a deck whose playstyle depends on careful politics. really wish I could include her, but I just don't think she's a perfect fit

Surprised to see no Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor and Varchild's War-Riders. They are obviously awesome with Kelsien and also "group hug" because you are giving stuff to your opponents. They can help with your weakness against creatureless combo decks.

Creatures that do more if they have a higher power like Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin and Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor

Do tokens created by Myriad "have to attack" since they enter tapped and attacking? That would make myriad creatures and Blade of Selves useful in this deck.

NTakamura I didn't consider that being attacked was actually part of the goal. If that's the case keep on keeping on.

Some of the first that jumped to my mind were Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor. As Kazuul wants to be attacked and Varchild gives out lots of tokens just by existing while protecting you. Those, however, are monocolored. Still options for the 99.

Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant is pretty solid but I'd edge more towards Kardur, Doomscourge. He goads your opponents every ETB. Combine that with some of the already mentioned cards and Rite of the Raging Storm, Goblin Spymaster, and Tempt with Vengeance. Among others. You could actually drop the lifegain or with cards like Exquisite Blood and Whip of Erebos keep it going.

As a final offering Basandra, Battle Seraph allows you to force attacks like the Rakdos options but keeps attacking you open. I think the hardest part of this strategy is going to be forcing attacks. Particularly if you don't use red. Up to you of course and I think Teysa works well too.

this idea cracks me up. there's always the Hunted cycle, plus Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Baffling End, Akroan Horse, Combat Calligrapher, and Poisonbelly Ogre!

Nice interactions. Here's to hoping that you get Varchild's War-Riders and Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor out at the same time.
