Sorry, while I see kind of why you want to have Agoraphobia, I still don't see the use in any other situation. Desecration Demon hasn't really been played that much recently, though our FNMs tend to be Swampless for that situation to arise. Of course, you probably were just making a point there. Perhaps put Agoraphobia to sideboard and instead put in Burst of Strength or Bioshift . Love the Biomancer and bouncy Master of Waves combo, though.

I'd take out Boon Satyr , Voyaging Satyr , add in Burst of Strength and Savage Surge and take out 1 Courser of Kruphix and 1 Pheres-Band Raiders for 2 Centaur Battlemaster . That way it would be a pure tribal that has some heroic triggers along with untap stuff for some good combat tricks with the inspired. Haven't tested any of these but it seems like some powerful combos. Also +1 from me for Standard Tribal Centaurs

I really like the deck, but it seems unecessary to splash white just for Ajani and the charms. I think there are better ways to give counters in just G/U. Granted for three mana, you have a counter giver every turn, but I think that spot could be better suited for Heroic triggers or maybe some defense. As it is, you have no defense, so Ajani won't stay alive for long (not like he ever does anyway lol). You could try Ranger's Guile to protect the Sage and give him a counter, or even Master Biomancer to give Sage a head start. Also I think 4x Bow of Nylea is too many, I would go to two or no more than three. You don't want to be drawing more than one in a game or it's a dead draw. One card I think should absolutely be in here is Vorel of the Hull Clade . You can double counters with the Hydra, then double them again with Vorel. Some more suggestions: Cloudfin Raptor for early defense and counters, Burst of Strength will net you two counters with Heroic, Bred for the Hunt for card advantage, for protection: Ranger's Guile , Crypsis , Mortal's Resolve , or Mizzium Skin all trigger Heroic as well as protect. That's all I can think of at the moment, but good luck with this deck, it looks like it has great potential. +1

Well, all you need is the sage, the elite tactics combo and 5 mana open. Burst of Strength is great but unless you are doing this Turn 3-4 Tactics works just fine. (Unless of course you want an X/X creature from the counters, that could be arranged. LOL.)

Ohthenoises that will be a fun mechanic when its out ill try it out at! Elite Arcanist with Burst of Strength will help drive up the counters.

This looks cool. However, I think Sage of Hours can be more broken: it with 2 Forced Adaptation s and ajani = infinite.

It with an Elite Arcanist with a Burst of Strength and ajani = infinite.

Elite Arcanist + Triton Tactics + a mana dork = infinite toughness, and infinite mana if you do put in that Illusionist's Bracers .

Here's another one for you all:

sage of hours + Burst of Strength + Elite Arcanist + the new ajani.

Depending on how competitive this is, 2x Forced Adaptation with ajani and sage of hours also makes infinite, as does Elite Arcanist + Burst of Strength with ajani and sage of hours.

+1 for the first cool deck I've seen getting sage to infinite. Price
