The bonus of the LD spells are that they ramp you and thin the deck. So, playing big dudes as wincons is a good idea. -4 demolish + 4 Thermokarst - 3 Shock and -1 Rampant Growth + 4 Aurochs Herd as a big dude of choice.

I feel like a splash of green would really help this deck, as it would allow you to play high-value cards that your deck lacks, namely Fog and Aurochs Herd , as they provide great utility, one of them even being so broken that it allows you to negate an infinite amount of damage. It would also synergize greatly with Elvish Visionary , creating a powerful card draw engine that would confuse the opponent.

TL;DR take out blue, as it is cluttering up the true power of your deck.

okay, here are some "win-cons" I found. you could just go for a big creature like Trench Gorger , Stormtide Leviathan , Aggressive Mammoth , Aurochs Herd , Carnage Tyrant , Child of Gaea , Cloudthresher , Essence of the Wild could be fun, Force of Nature is really big, Frost Titan , Grunn, the Lonely King , Guile , Hydra Broodmaster (this is one of my all time favorites since it was one of my first cards), Nessian Wilds Ravager , Sagu Mauler (a card I wanted to play for a long time but didn't have the right deck for it, but this seems a perfect fit), Terra Stomper (of course, a classic), Gigantosaurus , Primeval Force , Thornling or maybe Vorapede

yes, I went through almost every 5 and 6 cost minion in green and blue. I'm sure there are other cards that could win you the game out there. but this is what I found

you could also use something that is very evasive ofcourse. like Sun Quan, Lord of Wu or Archetype of Imagination . or something different like a combo with Deadeye Navigator , or counter things and make Draining Whelk really big.

Welcome the Pauper format!Your deck seems like if could use some work. Mind if I give a few pointers?
So, your idea is to control the board while ramping into fatties?

Well, to Ramp fast in pauper you can: Arbor Elf and Voyaging Satyr to untap lands enchanted with Utopia Sprawl, Wild Growth, Overgrowth and Fertile Ground.

use the Tron Lands: Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant and Urza's Mine and fetch them with Crop Rotation and Expedition Map.

use spell based Ramp: Rampart Growth, Cultivate, Skyshroud Claim, Explore and the honorary Sakura-Tribe Elder.

For Fatties choice you can play:

Ulamog's Crusher, Hand of Emrakul, Aurochs Herd, Fangren Marauder and Breaker of Armies.

As for removal in Black, you might wanna get Diabolic Edict to get those pesky hexproof creatures.

Neither Sylvan Scrying nor Bane of Bala Ged are pauper legal. TappedOut is not very good at determining pauper legality.

To replace, I suggest Maul Splicer or Aurochs Herd, and filling out your playsets of Crusher and Crop Rotation.

I am lowering the mana-curve.

I found out that Aurochs Herd is too slow in the current meta. I switch the 3 Aurochs Herd for a third Blastoderm and two Mogg War Marshal. Even if Mogg War Marshal is considered an aggro card, it can really help control the board. The 1/1 Goblin tokens can block and they can be equipped with Bonesplitter or enchanted with Elephant Guide.

I switch the two Ghitu Slinger (which underperformed) for two Tattermunge Duo. It has a solid body and its pump effect can help him deliver damage or survive a damage removal or a block.

Any though?

By far the most hilarious decklist I have ever seen. It's Aurochs tribal! A friend of mine was saying that Aurochs, especially Aurochs Herd are some of the worst cards in MTG history just the other day, so I might just build this to screw with him.
