why Platinum Angel? You aren't running any way to get rid of them so you can win

(Really I should just cut Staff of Nin for Training Grounds but staff is a bit of a pet card of mine as I have an alter done by one of my favorite podcasters and it does work as a combo finisher. Might have to cut it though because TG is just so damn efficient in Memnarch...)

Hey NV_1980! Thanks for the ideas! Ugin, the Spirit Dragon would definitely be a perfect fit for this deck. I just picked up the Grim Monolith and Power Artifact today so I'm going to wait and let my wallet recover before going after him, Mox Diamond, Extraplanar Lens, and 24 snow covered basics which are probably the next upgrades in line for this deck.

I do like the Training Grounds idea, my only copy is in my Sliver Queen deck though so I might have to think about what I could cut to make room for it in this deck and if I find a spot I'll consider picking up another copy.

Hey cPute,

I had Rancor in the deck before, that card puts in work! I actually really love it but I believe I ended up cutting it for one of the swords. Not sure what I would cut to make space for it though... Absolutely open to suggestions, like I said I love the card! However, all I can think of cutting would maybe be Eldrazi Conscription or something but I think I love that card too much to drop it, lmao something about that card in a cat deck always catches people off guard.

As for card draw those are all really good suggestions, I used to run Harmonize and Hunter's Insight but ended up cutting them. That may have been a bad idea considering I only have about six cards that draw me cards in the deck (closer to eight or 9 if you count repeatable/bounce-able tutors but still...). I do have more ways to generate card advantage without drawing (recursion/tokens/etc.) but that's really not the same. I should probably get at least Hunter's Insight and Rishkar's Expertise into this deck but again I'm just not sure what to cut to make room.

tshelt Haha nice! That's a super rad deck! It would probably be really good against mine tbh hahaha

And thanks, glad you like my build! It's gone through a lot of different iterations. There is definitely a big upside to Memnarch in that he is a mana sink for all the ramp I want in a deck like this and that he is an great finisher for an infinite mana combo. That being said, there is also the downside that he is instantly targeted by a lot of players which can make it hard to get off the ground especially as he is very mana hungry. You also have a bit of a toss up between the two commanders in that with Thada Adel, Acquisitor you don't know who has what before you look but with Memnarch you know what you are getting; the downside to that, of course, being that it costs way more and with Mycosynth Lattice Thada can get anything anyway.

I deferentially like both as commanders though, I've even been toying around with the idea of running Thassa, Deep-Dwelling at the helm of the deck to get even more value off of my ETB tutors and creatures with abilities they tap to activate. I haven't pulled the trigger on the idea yet but I might try it the next time I run this deck out and see how it goes, I figure that the very least I'll avoid some of the hate and at best I'll be tutoring for things at minimum twice off of every ETB creature tutor.

That's fair cPute, I've run into the same issue at times of only being able to take out a couple people and not closing out the game. Usually by having a lot of tutors/recursion and getting protection through the swords I can keep myself alive to the end but it can be hard to fight through to the last if there is a lot of removal. Can definitely run into some card draw issues at times too but overall I've found it plays solid. Certainly one of my more casual decks though haha

As for Berserk, yeah that could probably go in there, it fits well. I think I didn't include it at first due to not having a copy on hand and then never bothered to add it. The one downside to the card is just that on top of losing a creature (which can sometimes be problematic if I don't have card draw in play or a way to make the creature indestructible) I also need to re-equip everything attached to them to something else which is problematic unless I have a way to make it free. It's a great card but I'm not sure if it's going to end up fitting in my build unless I start making my creatures indestructible more consistently/build in more card draw/or something like that.
