BMHKain: Have a read of this. While you're one of the prime culprits, I have come across enough other threads that I thought I would just address a bunch of points at once so that everyone can benefit from it.

BMHKain: I'm current on limited internet for the next few days, so I'll answer your first question separately. Please be patient on that response. As for Happily Ever After - when a card is in a graveyard, there is not such thing as a permanent. Permanent only applies to cards on the battlefield. So what it is saying is htatyou have to have 6 cards among types between the battlefield and your graveyard, however of the cards on the battlefield, they have to be permanents (which is like 99.99999% of situations). As for hte full list of card types, you have
Of these 8, you need to have at least 6. Instants and sorceries can be counted, however can only be counted in the graveyard.

MASSIVE UPDATE: I'm currently trying to remodel decks of my own kind after they reach the 100 card mark. This thread actually has one in question done after all hell has been traversed.
So, if the Senior Staff agrees, this actually needs to be closed after this was at sheer completion. Is anyone in agreeance? I'm already making a legitimate Description for the new version anyway. Not much else one can do otherwise... :)

(What about CHAOS could be so "Casual" when Cascading like heck?)
NOTICE BEFORE QUESTION: This is a CHAOS deck; normally seen as "Casual". I just wanted to make it more viable is all; by removing it's "Casual" limiter, & almost make it good enough to compete w/ those slightly above Core/Mid-Core Playgroups.
Q1: This is at 150 cards & still at chopping (As of this post), but this is asking about the decisions on the cuts so far. What were good & bad choices?
Q2: As a CHAOS deck, one should differentiate what's Casual & Core/Midcore. Without relying too much on Random, Coin Flip, etc, what would be good so the advantage is yours most of the time?
Q3: While including what you thought was Good or Bad, what other cards would you cut to 100 as a result? (50 is a lot; I concur.)
Q4 FINAL: A true CHAOS Deck isn't w/o huge risk. (& no, Chance Encounter + Frenetic Efreet doesn't count.) Be it still up for cutting, replacing, or even adding, what would be the best CHAOS cards both High Risk/Reward & giving you a better advantage than your opponents (Even 1v1.)?
I apologize for a lot of text; maybe I should cease the NOTICES hereon? Also, I suggest you look up Mid-Core if you want to know; I am one for instance.
Thanks again in advance for the help! What would you suggest in this case?

@goodair: Maybe you can help? You wanted an Admiral Beckett Brass Deck to be more Flavorful at one point? I'm doing just that also; but not just to higher extremes, but even be "Mostly" Tribal Themed as well.
Maybe you can help w/ this?
October 19, 2019 12:29 p.m.
Supplemental: I guess nobody wants to help w/ this deck anymore? I just wonder what else is there that can help Authenticity of Flavor in Pirate Tribal. I'd like some ideas, please. In the meanwhile, I'll see what I can do about other things...

Update: Just updated my deck to have a Myriad of ways to use Face-Down Cards. I am now at 17 cards over. But I still need your help on this.
I'll deal w/ Yidris myself. I just want your thoughts on Kadena for now. That said, I'd like some ideas for cuts as of this point please. It's Ironic nobody was helping me by this point. I just wanted some opinions of what should stay, cut, or be added instead; especially Backslide ; how does one repeat the effect as if w/o even Isochron Scepter ? Another Question to add.
Thanks in advance if anybody has any ideas for adds, cuts, or stays; as well as a way to repeat Backslide . Later!

BIG UPDATE: Recently finished some decks, & this one's next.
Remember what I said about Timestream Navigator Earlier? Well, I also ponder how many useful Targets Helm of the Host has; & what's it good for? Well, I though a lot about it: How many uses for it are there? & IF this is meant to be Flavor-Tribe Based, what about the Deceit? Broken Alliances to benefit yourself? You know, what famed Pirates like Edward Teach (Blackbeard), & even Fictional Examples like Ol' Cap'n Jack Sparrow (Sorry for the references; I just hope those two examples are well known at least...)? That said, I've 2 questions; one will be in the OP, so 1 for now. Is the following combo Legitimate?: Helm of the Host + Timestream Navigator ? I'll update the OP after.
Thanks for all the help thus far BTW! ;D

(Help is still wanted for this deck, & I'm posting to keep this alive.)
But first, a word to a certain someone...
cascadien, I really am sorry if my words were a really bit rash. I was trying to explain why I chose Kruphix, & nothing else. I have nobody to blame but myself. It's just that I wanted to use a myriad of spells; which can really help for just what you mentioned w/ Chulane, Teller of Tales : Several 2-Card Combos can make infinite mana; something not even Eldraine's Narrator that starts with: Once Upon a Time , & end with Happily Ever After can achieve as well. For creature Advantage, don't be so sure that Kruphix can do it to other creatures alone. Stuff like Psychosis Crawler ENDS GAMES. This also coincides with Card Draw; which there is already several of this that can potentially Deck Out your opponents before yourself.
This was what I was trying to convey the whole time. I hope you understand this now, right?
Regardless, I still need some help from some others. Does anyone want to help this cause also? There is still 27 cards left to slice...
October 18, 2019 1:05 p.m.
@bushido_man96 (Or someone else I don't have to rely on all the time... X/): My next two 4+ on the hot seat are Loxodon Lifechanter & Felidar Sovereign . This is prime Wincon material, much like several others thus far. But I feel Platinum Angel might outclass both, & to a fault where I actually am contemplating putting in Platinum Emperion . I'm trying to be consistent, but what to do, what to do... Cut a Wincon, or have the possibility of Losing even by conventional means? Thoughts, as well as from others in addition?
October 17, 2019 7:44 p.m.
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...
October 17, 2019 2:29 p.m.
@bushido_man96: (Man, I seriously need help from others also...)
OK. NOW the 1 last cut. From there, this will finally reach completion...
Scenario No.1: To cut Heroes' Podium , or To cut something else entirely.
Temporary Resolution: If nobody can think of an alt. idea for a cut, the Podium get's Shenanigans 'd, & at least this deck will be ready for construction.
Suggestions for The Final Cut:
Jhoira's Familiar : cost for all my Legends & Artifice to cost less. Is this truly worth it?
WILD CARD: I'll leave it to you petty individuals to decide my fate for me...
Well, what it will be? Not sure if I have to bring back Yomiji, Who Bars the Way who allows Death Triggers, but for a deck that Reanimates like MADNESS, do you think it's worth adding again? If so, Mindslaver Stays; & two cuts are to be made instead. Prepare for WAR...

Project Sevinne rebooted.
This has never been worked on in so long; & is still 26 cards over the 100 card goal. I really don't want to remind you of the questions; I've a CHAOS deck to do in the meanwhile. But can anybody help w/ this, please?
I'm starting to feel again that Sevinne, the Chronoclasm has nothing again. I just added some stuff in, but I'd like some advice for what to cut; & maybe even add... >_>
October 17, 2019 1:09 p.m.
First of all; lore wise: He's a Goddamn Primordial God! Older than even Heliod, God of the Sun ; who is like a King of the Gods for the Plane of Theros; but Kruphix knows more outside of Theros than all its other Gods. He even knew of the Eldrazi's Existence, & that not even all 5 Major Gods & 10 (9 if you count that has no God.) Minor Gods's overall combined power can even effect Ulamog ; who is the Weakest of the 3 Titans. He's also one of my favorite Simic Cards of all time; & I'll mention why...
...Now. He's Indestructible; he's not that hard to cast from the Command Zone, any leftover Mana that would empty from the Mana Pool is retained, & converted to mana, which can be used freely so as long as Kruphix, God of Horizons is in play; in which, you kinda need to Exile him to destroy the Mana Reserve. Oh, & did I also mention HE'S A GODDAMN RELIQUARY TOWER ON LEGS!
I dunno if you get this theme in mind, but: is a big factor in this deck; most notably in the use of Mana Ramp & Card Draw. There are several ways to Ramp for a HUGE number of Mana. Heck, Card Advantage isn't the only thing that benefits from Costed Stuff. This deck uses Creature Advantage by Pumping all that into an cost for a Myriad of abilities; be it a Mana Cost, or even a cost for an effect that requires it; sometimes effects.
Sorry, but I'm not making Chulane anytime soon. Kruphix stays. & I just want some suggestions or cuts from this deck please. Any other ideas? I'll be waiting...
October 17, 2019 11:06 a.m.
@bushido_man96: So after all hell broke loose for 4 cards:
But what to cut after that?
I've only 2 ideas for cuts:
So we got two ideas for cuts:
Any ideas? I'm literally working on multiple decks at one time... DX
October 16, 2019 6:04 p.m.
Take two of trying to bring this corpse back to life...
What you wanted me to add:
Which means 4 cards to cut:
I wonder if anyone has any ideas? I have some:
& that's all I got. Any ideas for cuts? I'd recommend Day of Destiny though. I'll be waiting... :)
October 16, 2019 4:29 p.m.
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?
October 16, 2019 2:26 p.m.
I do agree that some fat is underpowered in their own way. As I'm currently pondering this predicament, I'm starting low to see what abilities are truly underpowered in addition; thus deserving the Zweihander's Cleave .
As for Stompy Aggro: Would I put Vanilla Fat in? I do like some consistency; (Glares Demonically at Hamletback Goliath .) but seriously, I may as well cut some while I'm on a case. For now though, I've stuff to do...
October 16, 2019 12:31 p.m.
Back. I'm assuming 5 Questions is too much here. So unless anyone can find something for me to fuse, I ponder as I also have other things to do; including a complete revising of another deck...
So, any suggestions? Any cuts? I'm pondering myself...
October 16, 2019 11:05 a.m.
Back. I never thought I'd say it, but I've another Question to add. After all, this is meant to be a deck that can Summon a whole Creature Count in one combo. Since Staff of Domination , Sword of the Paruns , & Umbral Mantle are all canned, I'll be adding something else here to backup this goal. That said, I ponder if it is even possible to loop until all Fat are in play in one turn. How would you approach this, & literally fill your arena w/ Power 4 or More Creatures? I wonder...
I'll add it as a Q4 to boot. Any questions?
October 16, 2019 10:53 a.m.
@bushido_man96: (Ponders in thy own head about making Sliver Tribal or not...)
Well, you definitely have a very sound point indeed. So much, I'm canning the idea, & putting Bloom Tender in the Maybeoard all over again.
But I still wonder how to go infinite w/ Atla(s) Palani w/o those things; & staying in color. My goal of this deck is simple: Make a huge army of Fat Power 4 or more each. What the bloody heck to do to achieve this w/o something that, as you pointed out, may as well be Tutor Fodder.
I suppose you have any ideas? I've ALOT of other decks to do in the meanwhile...
October 16, 2019 8:58 a.m.
@: Alright. It got chopped. I'd mention anything else, but I guess the only thing I can say is that I currently have 10 cards left to cut. I dunno what to cut; nor should I decide Timestream Navigator 's fate; which depends on one of the following to use:
Right away, I'm cutting the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Splinter Twin choice from this as they are too OP, & less Flavorful.; but is this really a DEATH Trigger, is opposed to a Bottom-Deck Trigger that Navigator already has. I just want to know how this works.
That said, Timestream Navigator 's place would be decided in one of 2 options:
A: Kick her Overboard
B: Find out how this 2 Card Combo Works; & be thematic about it.
I think I said enough, but just in case, either Navigator gets chopped, or I find out how a Death Trigger can work for infinite Turns.
I'll zip it from there. I'd like other's thoughts about this. :/
