Burden of Guilt Discussion

So here are some things I think will help the deck improve vastly for combo efficiency as well as speed of deck, and consistency.

Faster Mana suggestions:

Mox Diamond, Exploration, Ancient Tomb, Selesnya Signet, Arbor Elf.

Utility Lands Suggestions:

Deserted Temple, Horizon Canopy, Flagstones of Trokair, Wirewood Lodge. Even with these additions, you still have more than basic lands for Earthcraft. Hell I've played earthcraft in a deck with 10 basic lands total and still had no problem hitting it.

Tutors to help consistency of deck:

Sylvan Tutor, Survival of the Fittest, Natural Order (this one might not be as good for you.. but you can always sack your commander if need be depending on your line of play... like the selvala, wormcoil, variation of the combo. So if they already blew up your thornbite staff... you can still mill them out with selvala and dosan/grand abolisher line. While we want to streamline the combo... sometimes plan B and C are necessary... as we can get hated on. The deck should be able to get through hate as well. Heliod's Pilgrim again is not the best atm... but idk what other aura's you are gonna put in... lawl maybe Burden of Guilt jokes! The squirrels nest combo can be easily achieved on this tutor if you already got out earthcraft.

Other Utility/Win conditions that use the cards the you already have in the deck:

Selvala, Explorer Returned, Viridian Joiner. As I stated in the FB post.. you already run one of the cards... so these are just other outs to win if all else fails. Selvala might be harder for you to run, but she is a good utility creature in your deck. Especially when you need to draw in green... and white.... which we both know is hard as shit, and she adds a bit of mana to us. The joiner though is just infinite green mana, so it is a nice edition to the deck period, and can be an another win condition set up.

Also you have 2 open the armory in your list.

Hyato on One Hundred Eyes' aura ($25)

I traded Aura Gnarlid and Ghostblade Eidolon for Battle Mastery and Gladecover Scout - for now at least. I like how Gnarlid can become quite unblockable.

After a quick search, I've found Nimbus Wings, Glaring Aegis, Journey to Nowhere, Conviction, Gryff's Boon and Burden of Guilt.

They're all 1 or 2 CMC and can make a difference.

Nimbus Wings and Gryff's Boon can make my attacks fly above most defenses. One has better bonuses and the other is replayable.

Glaring Aegis and Conviction both give good bonuses for defense or (somewhat) offense, making my creatures less scared of stronger walls. The first is cheaper and has an utility, the second is safer.

Journey to Nowhere and Burden of Guilt can open the board for me. I prefer these over the flying ones especially when having to face Hurricane and others of the like.Any suggestions?

Hey Look, a Spoiler! Show

Those are in spoilers because one of the responses was quite lengthy and I hate having to scroll down.

One small example of a story change here would be an addition of Burden of Guilt then siding into Press for Answers and Coerced Confession. (Assuming you splashed blue). This is just an example. I personally think that you have a good concept. I look forward to seeing and new creations you make.

Man I love the idea, I had a deck in mind around Big Teysa and extort, but adding the exalted really makes this complete.

Is this deck still going? If so I think I'd replace Burden of Guilt, Pacifism and Martial Law with Arrest, Prison Term and Darksteel Mutation

My creature has Burden of Guilt attached to it that my opponent owns. It is now my turn. When can they use that ability?
