If you wanted to get even more into the casting/copying/recasting of your instants and sorceries, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage is a great card with her ultimate giving you the ability to cast multiple Titan's Strength on an unblockable creature for example. there are numerous creatures that are better than Crackling Triton . Options I might use would be Blighted Agent , Gelectrode (who can easily do more than Crackling Triton ), Mudbutton Torchrunner , Rage Forger (could be pretty good here). I would trade one Essence Scatter to a dedicated counter spell (like Mana Leak or Syncopate , or Dissolve , and probably another into a Negate because there are a lot of pretty nasty spells out there. A card that could be fun, but isn't amazing is Wild Ricochet , because it essentially counters an opponents spell, and casts two spells in your favour, so it can be used to move say a buff spell like Burst of Strength onto one of your creatures. I would consider making room for some form of card draw, whether it be Izzet Charm or Divination a deck can always use a little boost, and if you could copy one of those, that gets you a lot of card advantage.
I'd max out the Hardened Scales , get a few Experiment One , and replace the Retribution of the Ancients with Unmake and replace a Putrefy with Mortify . As good as Desecration Demon is, I think that you'd be better off with a third Corpsejack Menace and a fourth Herald of Anafenza . Your mana curve is also really low on two drops. I'm personally fond of Tidehollow Sculler , but it doesn't fit the deck well.
I'd cut the Kin-Tree Invocation down to one, as it will only be useful late game.
Burst of Strength is a nice combat trick, allowing you outlast at the end of your turn, then when your opponent declares attackers, you untap the outlasted guy so he can be a surprise blocker, and it gets a boost as well.
Bramblewood Paragon is a nice two drop.Deranged Outcast might work.Lotleth Troll can get big quickly, and the regeneration makes him hard to kill.Quirion Dryad is insanely powerful in this kind of deck. She will get bigger practically every turn.
You have many pieces with tapping abilities, but you don't need them. Replace Burst of Strength with Triton Tactics so imprinted Arcanist goes off with ZTD. Drop Gyre Sage- only mediocre. More Bracers, too.
@Tacoyeti33 You're welcome, and if you really want to get some more Savagery into your match-ups. You have the option of playing Savage Surge in place of, or with Burst of Strength . It won't generate the green mana with + , but it does provide some decent redundancy.
Right, well, ideas, there's the Elusive Krasis and the Renegade Krasis , but may I also suggest Fathom Mage for draw acceleration and Burst of Strength for putting a +1/+1 counter on at instant speed.
For land, may I recommend Novijen, Heart of Progress ?
Nice deck ! I get inspired from yours to make a 321 rarity Pyramid deck.
Since I use only singletons of rares and mythics, I found very useful to add Hunter's Prowess . I gives trample and card draw. Maybe it is better than Life's Legacy in many cases.Also, Burst of Strength is good in addition to Solidarity of Heroes and Scourge of Skola Vale .
Have fun with your deck !
I'd add manadorks of any kind (Birds of Paradise
, Noble Hierarch
or Arbor Elf
). I also like Gyre Sage
but it's accelaration starts T3 at the earliest.
Also get those Breeding Pool s. They are just so much better than temples (and your Hinterland Harbor s do also count them).
There might be room for some Remand s, manaleaks, Rune Snag , or Spell Snare instead of a few of the polymorphing cards. Maybe Savage Summoning and Burst of Strength can find a place here.
This could actually become quite good if you tinker with it a little bit. I like it very much for it's weirdness +1
