[Pauper][EDH] Colorless Insanity with Plague Myr

[B]Introducing the most restricted EDH deck ever:[/B]

[B]Colorless. Pauper. Insanity.[/B]

Pauper Commander rules require the use of non-rares only. Any card printed as a common (or uncommon for the commander) is legal. In place of the regular requirement for a legendary commander, any common/uncommon creature is allowed. Finally, the other 99 cards must be common. All other rules are the same.

The mission: Create a pauper deck with a colorless creature as the commander. 1 Non-rare and 99 commons: how bad could it be? There are 31 permanent mana sources available at common that have a colorless identity. 18 lands and 13 artifacts. Enough for EDH? Let's see.

I had originally planned on using this sweet guy: Darksteel Sentinel, 31 mana sources is really... not much; perhaps there's an uncommon creature that can help with this issue?

The only real choice is between Palladium Myr and Plague Myr. Mr. Plague costs less and actually has some personality, so let's use him as our commander.

What!? We need 69 MORE cards? Uh...

We do have a few options:

decent 0 cc cards (tokens are included in the search, so getting this out of the way):

+ all 173 +![U]+![B]+![R]+![G]&text=+![{W}]+![{U}]+![{B}]+![{R}]+![{G}]+![mana pool]&subtype=+![Forest]+![Plains]+![Island]+![Mountain]+![Swamp]&rarity=|[C]&cmc=+>[0]"]additional cards. Unfortunately, many of these cards are either nonfunctional without colored cards, or are incredibly over-priced. Since we have an infecting commander, +power & evasion will be extra useful. Let's see what the list might look like...

Oh gosh. You know it's bad when you're using Herbal Poultice. This deck requires aggressive mulligans to get enough mana to stabilize and begin attacking. Plague Myr is often brought out and used for mana before attacking.
