go down to 16 creatures and open up slots for the Sram's Expertise like PipPipMagulager said maybe add a couple Dusk / Dawn to wipe over top of your creatures it's usually a blow out against b/g constrictor decks. add a Blighted Steppe or two for Ayli, The Eternal Pilgrim to go off and pillow fort a little. the players at the fnm are usually are usually surprised by a main deck Fumigate. anointer priest is amazing once you have a couple Anointed Procession's on the board so you have to play a game of when do you pull the trigger on embalming her and gaining massive life. she see's herself as a token so you gain one for embalming her but at one procession it's 4, at 2 it's 16 life, at 3 it's 64 life. ((that is if I have read the card right.))

I feel the deck needs a bit more life-gain. I suggest trying out 2 Heron's Grace Champion instead of the grim flayers. Other than that I feel like the deck is pretty good, but I've only been playing for a few months. Maybe cut down on the evolving winds? Could make the deck slow even though it has the potential to give you more clues. I would say 2 of them is nice and replace the other 2 for Blighted Steppe. I also sense that there are too many creatures. Blessed Alliance and Stasis Snare might be a good thing to add as well. P.S. I would only suggest the Steppe's only because you are running a lot of creatures. also if devoted crop mate is exiled you could lose easily because there is a lot of removal right now, especially board wipes. Overall I really like the deck. I'll probably make this deck and test it out.

Guess I can try using just the cards listed to help. put all four Cursed Minotaur, two Fan Bearer, and two Doomed Dissenter to the side board. That will drop you to 23 creatures and ten non-creatures. Put two of each In Oketra's Name and Supernatural Stamina from your maybe board to the side board then the rest to the main board. That'll take you to 23 creature and 14 non-creature main board and an eight creature and four non-creature side board leaving you with three slots open in it. As far as land goes, I'd suggest up to six BW lands, maybe two fetch lands and the rest basic. That should do pretty well. Your selection of BW lands is Shambling Vent, Forsaken Sanctuary, and Concealed Courtyard. Other lands that could possibly be useful are... Mortuary Mire, Blighted Steppe, Blighted Fen, Aether Hub, Spire of Industry, and Cradle of the Accursed

Not really. Sigarda, Heron's Grace is really helpful since it gives hexproof and generates tokens for blocking. And it's the only flying creature in this deck after all.
Talking about lands I've never had any problem with color distribution IRL. Blighted Steppe saves life sometimes if you use its activated ability at the right time. And Westvale Abbey Flip is great with Sigarda, Heron's Grace – angel creates tokens that can be painlessly sacrificed to create a demon :) Ormendahl, Profane Prince Flip is alternative wincon btw
Thanks for your upvote!

Also, the mana base seems weird. Out of 23 lands, you have 6 that only give colorless while you have 11 cards in the main (2 in the side) that require double white or double green. Especially when it comes to the Nissa in the main. You only have 2 Reality Smashers that actually require colorless to be cast. I understand that the idea is to use Cryptolith Rite to then use tokens to generate obscene amounts of mana. However, if you don't draw Crypto or it gets removed (and game 2 it very well might once they see your strat) you're left with a mana base that will have trouble casting double green and double white consistently on turn 3-4. I would recommend either removing 3-4 sources of colorless from your lands (1 Blighted Steppe and 2 Westvale Abbey Flip seems good) in favor of more colored sources. You could also look into putting a more dedicated mana dork in the main so that it can help fix your mana.
