You could probably south out two arbor to the sideboard or two swarthborn. Also since you run do few enchantments you could try Back to Nature instead of negate for the blow out potential. Could also throw in two Voyaging Satyr for more ramp.
Oxbones, Thank you for commenting and I have to agree that those are something my sideboard was missing. Erase is especially useful since my board sweep doesn't hit enchantment creatures. Greatly appreciated!
Ihazadeck, I'm aware of Back to Nature and it does some damage but not as much as you would think. Master of the Feast is my game finisher and helps to put stress on my opponent. I don't think more Thoughtseize is a good thing. It doesn't do that much. I would rather up the number of despises plus I already run 4 Brain Maggot. I originally only ran 1 copy of Extinguish All Hope but it eventually went up because I had to have more board control. I tried a bestow deck and it was more of an aggro deck while I'm working as a very late game control deck. I appreciate the comments and would like to know what you would replace Master of the Feast with. Thank you!
This is just a side not but I love how people are building the opposite color combos than what wizards is pushing with khans but now into hopefully helping you're deck
What a big problem I think you're going to have is caryatid courser decks and while you can't do a lot to caryatid besides punch thru it with you're instants/enchantments you can deal with courser well with things like erase or if you shifted this deck to more of an instant heavy and not enchantment heavy deck you could defiantly benefit from Back to Nature
A different option to go with is more counter spells side board or a spell that will wipe their board while I understand that in an agro deck counter aren't the way you want to go Nullify I've always found helpful also if you're later game because the other person has dragged the game out to a midrange game I would run Polymorphist's Jest sideboard because it helps for either defending or for attacking
So you have the lands to splash green in a control deck but youre not running any artifact/enchantment removal sideboard that beats whip reanimator or courser of kruphix or that beats red deck wins with all its enchantments or beats suicide black? why not run Back to Nature as a one or two of in at least the sideboard
Also idk your meta but in mine i know preventing damage from a source every turn would be extremely helpful so that brings me to my second question why are you not running Kiora, the Crashing Wave
last option that isnt as strong as the first two but i believe would be very helpful is Extinguish All Hope this card is a straight up board wipe that helps any deck that is not running white to control the board state
If you're playing against decks that use a lot of Enchantment cards, Back to Nature can wipe them out.
Doomwake Giant can wipe out a bunch of 1 toughness creatures by itself, and if you combine it with some other enchantments it can wipe out the other guy's whole board.
Another idea is to play blockers on your early turns. There are a lot of good ones in Standard -- Disowned Ancestor, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Dragon's Eye Savants, Ruthless Ripper, Wall of Frost, and Heir of the Wilds are all pretty good, depending on your deck.
27 is an awful lot of lands. I'd say drop some for more ramp, seeing as apparently you want to get some mean hydras out in a timely manner. Good options include Sylvan Caryatid or Voyaging Satyr, the latter only being really good if you elect to run some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Also a fun side note: See the Unwritten might be a nice option for you. For the side board: Back to Nature or Reclamation Sage might be good calls.
Genesis26 Sorry for missing sideboard and information. Just added this deck while coming back late from work. Sideboard is now posted, and I'll update deck info soon. Pharika is here in one piece to provide a nice indestructible body and 1/1 deathtouch snakes on instant, I think I'll be able most of the time to turn her devotion on, plus she's an enchantment triggering Eidolon of Blossoms and Doomwake Giant. I found Whip of Erebos to be an incredibly effective tool in the current meta. In main it is mostly big life-gainer plus constellation trigger. After sideboard it can bring back Ashen Riders. Any control matchup is really having a hard time when I'm whipping Siege Rhino and swinging at them for 7 life at the same time faining same ammount myself.
