This is my latest version of Riku, and I would like to get suggestions on it. It is a token build, but I want it to be less of a comboy token deck, and more of an explosive one. I basically want to ramp, play Riku, play mana efficient ETB token dudes and copy them, pump them a lot, and go crazy.
I feel like this deck runs well overall, but I think it could use a few more token producers, since it is an actual token deck. Any suggestions for those besides hornet queen? Dragon broodmother seems kinda slow and bulky to me. I don't know. The token production is what I need the most help with. Suggestions please?
Chuck in another Titan instead of Palinchron, if he's that boring to play with (giggity). Inferno could be decent, who wouldn't like getting double Lightning Bolts on attack?
The thing is, this deck is supposed to be more of an instant/sorcery build. Inferno titan doesn't really fit in well here. Primeval titan is only in here as the best ramp spell in the format. This deck doesn't really care about attacking.
I already feel like I have a million ramp spells in here. I have thought about farseek before though, I have to admit. Galvanoth might be worth taking out for it, since most of the time it doesn't really do anything.
Honestly, most of the time I use the infinite tokens from palinchron to win more often than the mana. I use the mana to copy a lot of draw spells to draw into an extra turn spell to seal in the win for me. Sometimes I use the mana for genesis wave, to dump all my spells in my graveyard and proceed to play every spell in my deck with past in flames. I can also capsize with buyback to bounce all my opponent's permanents. Kessig wolf run is also a pretty good outlet to win on the spot. My other way to win is just to draw tooth and nail and tutor for kiki-jiki/exarch.
If you want to go more combo, you can always add twin and Pestermite to go reaall deep. If you are going that sort of route, then also add some of the great tutors like Worldly Tutor, Chord of Calling, and the like to get your c-c-c-combos rolling.

I decided to cut rampaging baloths and give Kamahl a shot. It seems like a more efficient use of my mana, and Kamahl can get a lot more ridiculous. Still looking for suggestions on token producers though.
On a side note, this deck was able to deal over 100,000 non-infinite damage the other day.
Hmm... I'm not sure about this one yet. It's not the same as doubling season/parallel lives because those effects are cumulative, plus this is only a one-shot, and is more mana intensive. However, it does have some good qualities too... Although a lot of the time I would rather just copy burn at the stake, since it requires you to have tokens in play as well.
