I'm not sure Fling is that great in the deck. You work pretty hard to put those creatures on the field. I'm pretty sure you don't want to sac them. And on top of that, if you don't have enough creatures, it becomes a dead card in your hand.

Personnally I think I would focus more on the Dwarfs with stuff like Adventurous Impulse.

When I see Temur Battle Rage, it screams Kiln Fiend. I know, I know, it's not the goal of the deck....but it's so good. Remove the artifacts to put more stuff like Vines of Vastwood, Faithless Looting, Titan's Strength or Manamorphose. All that so you can slowly grow your army while always keeping the opponent on his toes for SURPRISE 10/10, Double strike, trample Kiln Fiend.

Finally about lands. I understand the 22 lands, but with nothing to help you gain mana faster, you need raw 5 or 6 lands to play your Big Boys. Lets be honest, 6 lands in 6 turns means you won't have alot of material to stay alive until D-Day for a 4/4. Blastoderm is way more menacing and cost less. Also you need some mana fix with Rugged Highlands or something like that.

All in all, I think your deck has alot of potential. It can be really good, but mostly really fun to play. :)

Crossbow Ambush for Geralt's crossbow.

Silverglade Elemental and Boneyard Lurker remind me a bit of a Leshen.

Ridgescale Tusker and Prowling Pangolin are like a Shaelmaar.

Giant Warthog is a... well a boar.

Ravenous Chupacabra reminds me a lot of the rabid, mangey dogs you find across Velen.

Screeching Harpy is pretty self-explanatory. There are lots of others, but the art on this one is pretty on-point with the Witcher.

Chorts and Fiends kind of look like Baloths and those kinds of beasts in Magic. Nessian Demolok is particularly close, but there's also Baloth Woodcrasher, Blastoderm and Garruk's Companion, among many others.

Werewolves... Take your pick. However very few werewolves in Magic depict them quite like they are in Witcher. They're so gross, painful and deformed in that game, so maybe you can choose some based on that.

Replace Nature's Lore for Sakura-Tribe Elder, bring at least 1x Krosan Tusker, cut at least 3x Wretched Gryff and 2x Tangle Golem for 2/3x Fierce Empath at least 1X Ulamog's Crusher and some mainboard Pulse of Murasa to retrieve STE and depletion lands, if you pack 4x pulses, you'll probably won't need the food lands, which can slow you down. Nissa's Pilgrimage and Arboreal Grazer are some cards to consider too, along Land Grant. Nissas nets you 3 cards, grazer ramps and stops aggro for a while and land grant is free. Chimeras seem a tad fragile,maybe you can use something like Blastoderm which is also retrievable with Pulse.

@Altoman that Blastoderm is actually super interesting, i've never seen that card! I considered Vigean Hydropon, but I never found it that appealing without many fight mechanics in the deck. I have never tried it however so it might be worth a shot. As for Skarrgan Pit-Skulk while i would consider this in a more competitive meta, this is a little more aggressive than i'd like to go with the deck, given the casual nature of the group.

Thanks a bunch for the suggestions and for checking out the deck tho!

Nice deck! I always liked proliferate decks.

I suggest Vigean Hydropon. It goes really well with proliferate.

Also, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk is something you might want to consider. Mix it up with Bioshift and you'll have great results.

Finally I would swap Cold-Water Snapper for Blastoderm because you can proliferate the fade counters and it cost less for better firepower.

Okay so first of all: one drops of two different colors in pauper is really awkward. It should work out fine most of the time but I feel like it might turn some hands that would be auto wins if you can play your 1 drop into pretty bad hands. In fact, you can see how awkward it makes things by your mana base: if you had another red 1 drop instead of Young Wolf , you could probably get away with swapping 2 forests for 2 mountains.

I'm not a fan of Horned Kavu : it's a big pile of stats, sure, but it puts you behind on tempo and it leaves you very vulnerable to Snap which is a blue staple. I would much rather see a fourth Burning-Tree Emissary and another two drop like Nest Invader or Mogg War Marshal which would help you trigger Morbid. (As a side note, Blastoderm + Horned Kavu doesn't actually work because Blastoderm has shroud)

Speaking of Blastoderm , I'm not a big fan of it because it can't come down before turn 4, which is the turn you're either going to be overtaken by other aggro decks or the turn a control deck will start stabilizing so you need to have an explosive turn 4, which is the complete opposite of Blastoderm as it's just a big pile of stats with no real impact on the field.

Manamorphose isn't great either: it does basically say -1 card in your deck but the filtering doesn't seem very relevant when you could have more action in your deck. If you had a Thermo-Alchemist or a similar card in there, it would be alright but right now, I'd be more happy to see more Rancor .

Overall, I feel like this deck is a bit too slow. Here are some cards to consider to accelerate it: Vines of Vastwood , more Rancor , Nettle Sentinel if the deck veers green, Goblin Cohort and/or Mogg Conscripts , Goblin Bushwhacker if the deck goes wider, Hunger of the Howlpack , Porcelain Legionnaire , Vault Skirge if you have lots of pumps, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk , Savage Swipe if you mostly have 2-power creatures and maybe some more burn in the main like Chain Lightning and Reckless Abandon .

I suggest: Horned Kavu mixed with Blastoderm and I think you need a good ol Vines of Vastwood to protect those creatures.

Nice deck!

I suggest Vigean Hydropon so you make sure your creatures get a +1/+1 counter and it will always target five creatures. (More if you proliferate it)

Also a good old Blastoderm always do the trick to mess up your opponent. Apparently, proliferate is not a 'Target' ability so you can make Blastoderm stay on the battlefiled longer by adding time counters.
