Baffling End Discussion

Thanks for commenting, awfulitis!
I may just agree with you on the Duress, which naturally somewhat includes Kitesail Freebooter. I think the reason I haven't changed them out is because I love having information on my opponent, but I guess that shouldn't stop me, yeah? As far as swapping them for removal, my Chupacabras provide plenty, to the point where sometimes I hold a Ravenous Chupacabra back purely because there aren't enough targets or I'd rather get an explore trigger off of it as well. When I can get a hold of a copy of liliana, death's majesty They'll be that much stronger as well!
I hardly ever have problems with individual creatures, but rather enchantments like Baffling End or even Fatal Push on my Wildgrowth Walkers, so that's why I avoided boarding Harsh Scrutiny. That's part of the reason I grabbed some copies of Blossoming Defense.
I did grab some copies of Hour of Glory as well! Thanks for the suggestion!
My sideboard is honestly a bit cluttered as it's hard to just give up on any individual card in it, but I'm trying a base of X2 Dread Wanderer in the main with X2 Deadeye Tracker in the side. I'll do some more testing to see what works.
Also, I made a Rishkar version of the deck as well, which I'll link as soon as I put that version online. Between the two I think I like this one better, as it feels slightly more consistent and doesn't rely as heavily on a combo.

:D!! Kizmetto thanks so much for the suggestions youve really made my day ive been hoping for some feedback for a long time now. I like the idea of changing 2 of the Scattered Groves but I think ill playtest to see how they feel i like the idea of cycling in order to hit key pieces. The meta of my LGS seems to be all the OP control decks ie B/U and U/W as well as the new Grixis energy :/
As for removal Ive opted to keeping it limited in my mainboard because I want the game to finish as fast as possible. That being said Renegade Rallier hits Baffling End when revolt triggers so that might be a interesting cantrip to explore as I refine the decks gameplan

Whoops yes i meant sideboard card :) as for mainboard, i think you want to run 1 more Legion's Landing Flip since its super easy to flip and you'd want it often in your match ups, maybe drop 1 Adanto Vanguard for it?
Oh and Baffling End for some needed removal, or Thopter Arrest if you dont like the restriction of Baffling End. I would suggest Cast Out but maybe thats a bit expensive for this deck. For such an aggressive deck, i think having 4 Scattered Groves is detrimental to you. What about dropping 2 copies for 1 Arch of Orazca and Field of Ruin? Or a Scavenger Grounds if theres graveyard or gods pharaoh gift in your meta?
What do you think about curving out with Angel of Invention? Makes dudes, makes all your creatures a bit bigger and shes a flying body which might be a perfect target for Appeal / Authority or the Huatli ability!

AUAIOMRN The Rallying Roars allow for a spike in damage mid-combat, and untap all of your creatures allowing for block phase on their combat. The Alley Evasions are good for winning small trades, or bouncing important cards back to your hand. Baffling End seems like a great sideboard card, and I may switch my Field of Ruins for Arch of Orazca.
The Immortal Sun however is not performing like I had hoped and will most likely be switched out very soon.
I appreciate your help! and I will definitely take those suggestions into consideration when reformatting the deck.

@mindness I would suggest Aetherflux Reservoir maybe some Gideon of the Trials. In the sideboard I woulld definately throw some Crook of Condemnation, Negate, Baffling End. I also think green has some great lifegain tools for the mid game if you are looking to make it to approach. Gift of Paradise, Hour of Promise puts up blockers, Nissa, Nature's Artisan I would only run one copy of that if any, but at that point you would probably want Nissa, Vital Force. Tendershoot Dryad makes tokens.

Hey FlabbyAbs, thanks for the suggestion. I worked 5 more enchantments in opting for Cast Out over Baffling End mainly because I'm more worried about Scarab God, Rekindling Phoenix, and Glorybringer as threats I can easily lose to, but also have the ability to cycle it away if I don't need it Ixalan's Binding will come in to "complete" the four drop enchantment removal suite when facing those).

I like the deck. One thing that stuck out is the ability to get both a creature and an enchantment. For that I'd look at 2x or more Baffling End and/or Cast Out (or Ixalan). Likely cut some copies of Appeal and/or Prepare.
