Back to Nature
Destroy all enchantments.
Back to Nature Discussion

No worries rofldiekatz, tbh its more tuned suited my meta the card choices I would run, as well as the types of decks I have in my possession. My meta is more towards the cutthroat side so many times, the equipments were way too slow. Especially with the limitation of going the tribal route as well. If there was no limitations of it being set, I would go with a mix half and half route, but in my games enchantments have won out a bit more until they start teching in Leave No Trace and Back to Nature type of cards.

Confusion in the Ranks can effectively make your opponent lose control of Ghostly Prison for the duration of the game, and yes, Confusion in the Ranks does trigger off itself entering the battlefield so you can exchange it right away.
If you remove Terminate and Rakdos Signet for Demonic Dread there will be no spells in your deck with CMC 2 or less. That means if you board in the Dread and a card like Destructive Revelry , Back to Nature , or Abrupt Decay then your Demonic Dread will always cast whatever 2-cost spell is in your deck without needing to pay it's mana costs. (You can always run Dismember instead of Terminate if you want a cheap removal spot or you can just board out Terminate for the Demonic Dread combo whenever you need enchantment hate more.)
When it comes to Black-Red you really have to get wacky if you want to interact with enchantments. It may be better to run discard effects like Inquisition of Kozilek or meta-specific sideboard-hate like the Ferocidon though.

Looks like you've done pretty well, given your stated budget. A couple up-front suggestions would be to combine the Oxidize and Spring Cleaning into 4 Naturalize so that you can hit both enchants and artifacts with either card. If you're worried about 2 mana being too much to keep on-hand, you can go for Nature's Claim instead. Secondarily, I don't believe Tranquility is modern-legal. Better choice in the sideboard is Back to Nature .
Next, after goldfishing your deck a few times, I found too many instances where I had giant monsters in hand, but was still waiting on the mana to cast them. I'd suggest lowering the curve a bit; dropping some of the bigger guys for 2 more Thought-Knot Seer or Matter Reshaper . You've got 11 threats that are 6+ mana, which is a bit too heavy, according to my goldfishing. Reality Smasher is another great threat at sub-6 mana which won't break the bank.
Other than that, unfortunately, the best way to improve your deck from here is to start acquiring some of the pricier cards. In addition to a 4th copy of Sylvan Scrying , I'd prioritize Ancient Stirrings first, as it helps dig for both your lands and creatures. Once you can dig better for lands/creatures, you may be able to drop your land count 1 or 2 for more spells.

I'm not Argy of course, but I think it's just that she hasn't gotten to comments yet today rather than a 'no' ... esp since it's not in her 'Cards Already considered' list. That said, I don't see how you can say Lantern Scout is strictly better than Kalastria Healer. That term is generally reserved for cards that offer a better effect at the same cost (e.g., Negate > Flash Counter), the same effect at a lower cost (e.g., Lightning Bolt > Shard Volley), or both (e.g., Back to Nature > Tranquility). And of course the Scout offers a VERY different effect (and not necessarily a better one ... the Healer is MUCH better for example vs. Ensnaring Bridge decks), plus it's at a higher cost (which of course raises the mana curve). Please note I'm not saying it's bad. Just that you and I have a very different definition of "strictly better" :-D

Ha! Back to Nature was actually in the first iteration of this deck with Heroic Intervention, but I replaced it with Paraselene and then just said screw it and replaced Paraselene and Heroic intervention with Primeval Light lol.
Thanks for the comment and upvote!
