Also you're gonna be all like. Enchant creature, rinse and repeat, and swing for 16. Oh hello there Back to Nature I have no response. Bogle swings for 1 damage...

I feel like you have made that judgement before testing it.

test it against anything "tier 1" it holds it own.

vs. burn it simply out paces.

vs. twin the lightning bolts and oppressive rays shut down Kiki, albeit it must be well timed to avoid counters. or it simply out paces. same with affinity.

BUG is a bit tough due to the force sac and the thoughtseize but that is only if I go second and only have one creature in hand.

any counter spell based control is kinda useless against me because you can't counter my creature as it hits turn 1 and the anything else after that is not really worth countering, there all one drops.

Tokens can be hard if I don't get Ethereal armor and Rancor, until I side in the Spirit Mantles, then forget about it.

vs. Pod it did well mostly... but that is moot now.

you tell me what tier 1 decks would walk over this one.

Of course I am not delusional I am not saying this is the best deck ever and every other deck will lose to it. I know there are some decks that do better against this one like 8 rack (can't do much against the spot discard) and some cards that can shut this one down such as Back to Nature (that's a kick in the balls right there) but with Hexproof it causes so many cards to be dead in hand, and with the evasion and ramping power of my creature most decks simply cant stop me from killing them on turn 4.

and regarding this not being a good bogles deck, with almost only 1 drops, it is faster then the regular (boring, unoriginal) Selesnya bogles, while they are still casting unflinching courage I have already one. I really like to build original decks.

Engineered Explosives is something that can ruin your day. If you don't see or any mass enchantment remove like Back to Nature,then there is no need. Once you start doing well consistently people will start to hate on your deck. So its something to think about.

Best thing about the seal is that it also adds +1/+1 to your creature with an Ethereal Armor out.

PayOneLife on Budget Surrak EDH Help

I'd probably keep blue to help with card drawing, which can be a bit expensive otherwise. I'd start with some of the staples, Cultivate or Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation, Eternal Witness and Beast Within are in just about every green deck ever. Chord of Calling is only about 5 bucks atm too so that could be a tutor for you. Mwonvuli Beast Tracker depending on your creatures. Sol Ring walks into just about all edh decks, as does Command Tower. For a decent artefact/enchantment boardwipe, look at Bane of Progress. Shatterstorm and Creeping Corrosion take care of artifacts, and Back to Nature can sort out enchantments. I'd consider not worrying too much about being able to wipe opponents' creatures and back yourself in to win the creature battle based on the power of your creatures. You could use Ulvenwald Tracker to spot kill, and Cyclonic Rift and Mizzium Mortars are boss. Bonfire of the Damned is a ripper too. If you're going the mana ramp angle I like Creeping Renaissance, I've used it a few times to spring back from a boardwipe and wreck someone's face because they have no blockers. Blasphemous Act is an obvious one. Fabricate is a decent artifact tutor, should you need it. Worldly Tutor is a serviceable tutor as well.

  • Rancor might be interesting, I know some cards already have trample, but others don't. Plus it comes with a +2/+0.

  • Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, ya know, if you like that sort of thing.

  • Kalonian Hydra, okay, so I know that the deck is on a budget, but even just one of these would be pretty cool.

  • Chord of Calling helps to get any creatures you want to slap down onto the battlefield.

  • Evolving Wilds it's cheaper than Cultivate $ wise, and costs no CMC. But you know, up to you.

  • Naturalize or Back to Nature to take care of pesky enchantments, because they're pesky XD

  • Ranger's Guile because Hexproof is very useful.

Anywho, that's all I got. Good luck, and let me know if you ever need anything!

FNM week three (05/15/2015)

header: Was completely exhausted tonight and had various misplays.

Match one vs G/R dragons... Game one was over quickly. opponent went Elvish Mystic, facedown Rattleclaw Mystic into Stormbreath Dragon. had no removal in hand, stormbreath went monstrous. I mis-tutored for Whip of Erebos off my Sidisi, Undead Vizier (should have gotten removal instead. opponent was in topdeck mode) forgetting the dragon did 7 damage making the damage from my sidisi+courser irrelevant (was at 1. Went to 7). Game two was amusingly short for my opponent. Same opening on other side was met with a Murderous Cut off my Satyr Wayfinder mill. Cast Sidisi, Brood Tyrant and began overwhelming the board. Disdainful Stroke a Thunderbreak Regent and Hero's Downfall a second stormbreath. Game 3 kept a hand of lands, Dragonlord Silumgar, Garruk, Apex Predator and Hornet Queen. Died a turn before I could use Silumgar to take a monstrous Stormbreath Dragon. (1-2)

Match two: vs G/W Bolser... Murderous cuts and downfalls kept my opponent off any relevant plays game one. Sidisi, Brood Tyrant + Sagu Mauler quickly closed out. Game two was similar minus Sidisi. Morphed a Mauler into play with removal. Opponent was land starved. (2-0)

Match three: vs 4-color morphers... Mastery of the Unseen is a nasty card. Add in Obscuring AEther and other flip based pump effects and this quickly became an impossible set. I had planned to bring a pair of Back to Nature in my sideboard this week and was punished for choosing Naturalize over it. (0-2)

Match four: vs G/W stuffs... Opponent had little real action in his deck outside of a Dromoka, the Eternal and a lone Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Game one was a blowout backed by removal + Sidisi Brood Tyrant. Game two saw elspeth resolving with nothing in my hand to interact. Tokens clogged the ground till an Ultimate. AEtherspouts prevented an instant death but next turn killed me. Match three was removal + Deathmist Raptor. Opponents final play was watching Dragonlord Silumgar steal a resolved Dromoka, the Eternal. (2-0)

Notes: Swapping back into a tighter low-end package with Sidisi, Brood Tyrant actually performing was nice. Stratus Dancer were sadly uninteresting mainboard. Not having a chance to take on any esper decks was also an issue. Flying decks are still problematic for the deck. Will most likely swap out Sagu Mauler for Arbor Colossus.

InDirectX on 2015-05-17 update of Aura of ...

1 week ago

So here's where my thoughts are right now. I want to add in Kor Spiritdancer but I have to remove something, of course. I'm thinking I'll either remove the Gideon's Avengers or the Phalanx Leaders.
I don't really want to get rid of the Gideon's Avengers because they allow my deck to continue functioning in the absensce of my enchantments, and I don't want to get rekt by some Zoo deck running Back to Nature like the overpriced store.
So:
-3 Phalanx Leader
+3 Kor Spiritdancer
The argument for not having Phalanx Leader is basically that, while his ability is good in multi-creature setups, this deck is mainly voltron. Thus, he's basically a Hero of Iroas but with no additional abilities.

However, I won't make the change right away because I want to fight the overpowered store as is (since I said I would).
