Cast Out Discussion
7 hours ago
@AlienoftheLand Post-board, you have 3 Gideon, 3 Aryel, 3 Lyra, and 2 Chandra to threaten Teferi, as well as 4 Vraska's Contempt, 2 Ixalan's Binding, and 3 Duress to deal with one directly (on top of Glorious End, which can be used as a "counterspell" if you have Gideon Emblem or Lich's Mastery out). If that's really not enough, you could switch some number of Disintegrations for Never / Return, or add Cast Out, but that's pretty much it. I believe the card-advantage engine you're looking for is Arguel's Blood Fast Flip.

I took the updated deck with Untamed Kavu to my LGS's Standard Showdown last night and bull-dozed my way to a 4-0 victory and 1st place out of 16 competitors. I played against two notionally tier-one decks (mono-red and UW Approach) and two tier-two competitive decks (WB knights and mono-blue Djinn). The newer players were caught completely off-guard when I fired off Pummelers for the win.
First round was against mono-red. Fanatical Firebrand and Goblin Chainwhirler kept my Pummelers from doing anything. In game 1, I had a handful of Sage of Shaila's Claim and drew into two Bristling Hydra, which allowed me to stabilize against his board of 2x Soul-Scar Mage, Earthshaker Khenra, and Hazoret the Fervent. I eventually found Hadana's Climb Flip and sent one kicked Untamed Kavu over their heads as a 12/12 flying, vigilance, trample. For Games 2 and 3, I sideboarded out 3x Electrostatic Pummeler since he had so many easy answers with burn spells, Fanatical Firebrand, and Goblin Chainwhirler. I brought in 3x Greenbelt Rampager in their place, but did not see an elephant through games 2 and 3. In game 2, the opponent got land screwed and I beat him down with a Cub, Kavu, and Hydra. He was stuck on three lands; he revealed his hand after I killed him to show his Chandra, Torch of Defiance, 2x Verix Bladewing, and 1x Glorybringer.
Second round was against a (newish) player with WB knights. The deck had a full 4x History of Benalia, but I did not see any Lyra Dawnbringer. In Game 1, he got out the combo of Knight of Grace + Knight of Malice , which made blocking very difficult. I played out several Sage of Shaila's Claim, a few other blockers, Hadana's Climb Flip, and one Electrostatic Pummeler. I managed to survive History of Benalia's third chapter while he had 2x Benalish Marshal, 2x Knight of Grace, 1x Knight of Malice, and the two knight tokens by chump blocking everything I could to leave my Pummeler alive. I was down to 2 life and hit him on the crack back with Electrostatic Pummeler + Larger Than Life for 54 damage, which he did not see coming. Game 2 was another easy win as I matched his knights with chump blockers, and kicked a Kavu into a flipped Hadana's Climb Flip again.
Round 3 was a good player running a mono-blue Djinn/Throne of the God-Pharaoh deck. He had a lot of 1 power flyers and unblockables, but no answer to my Pummelers. In both Games 1 and 2, I managed to field 2x Electrostatic Pummeler while holding 2x Larger Than Life. I played one Larger Than Life on each robot, then swung in with both to play around a possible Unsummon. I pumped the unblocked Pummeler for lethal.
Round 4 was a typical UW Approach running both Karn, Scion of Urza and Teferi, Hero of Dominaria. The deck and player were both very good. I over-played my creatures in Game 1 as I was trying to race him landing his planeswalkers or Lyra Dawnbringer. He Fumigate'd, leaving me holding a couple Blossoming Defense but no creatures. He eventually double-Approached for the win. I sideboarded in 2x Negate to counter Approach, but I did not see Negate or Approach of the Second Sun in Games 2 or 3. In Game 2, I landed a turn 3 Cub, turn 4 Hadana's Climb, and turn 5 Hydra while playing around Censor and Syncopate and was able to kill Teferi when he played him. Flipped Hadana's Climb Flip, and finished him off with the Cub + Hydra. Game 3 was almost identical, just replace the Cub with a Kavu.
Overall, I was surprised by the first place finish. I would have been happy with 2-2 when I saw my first opponent drop Fanatical Firebrand + Mountain . The mono-red match-up was very unlucky for my opponent, otherwise it could have easily run this deck over. The other three matches felt very fair, and my deck won by being bigger and faster than my opponents. I was drawing a good number of Blossoming Defense through out the night, saving my creatures from several Cast Out and Seal Away. Untamed Kavu worked great in the deck; I was never unhappy to see it. I played it several times on turn 2, and several times kicked. The Kavu works amazing with Hadana's Climb Flip, especially if the Kavu was kicked. This deck does not go wide very well. The vigilance was critical in a couple games to allow me to send the Kavu to attack with pump spell backup and have it available to block as well.

Danitha only makes auras cheaper so the cost of Seal Away and Cast Out isn't reduced by her. Otherwise, this looks like a sweet deck, especially with top end The Immortal Sun to stop those pesky Teferi's and Karn's. Though might it not be a bit slow against things like BR/WB Vehicles decks? What do you think of my version of Orzhov knights? http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/22-04-18-LSg-wb-knights/

Thanks for the reply, I'm glad I could help. As for the green splash I don't like the idea but for a super weird reason. The "problem" that I'd have is that Llanowar Elves and Drover of the Mighty are almost entirely better than Skirk Prospector and Wily Goblin for what you're using them for. Sure together they can turn 3 Etali, Primal Storm but the downside is they are the one-time-use version of their green counterparts. The thing is it makes using them probably correct despite diluting the spirit of what you're doing. Now if you follow that logic to its logical conclusion you end up just playing whatever net-deck is winning at the moment so maybe that's just me. Anyway if you're splashing a color just for enchantment hate maybe Thrashing Brontodon isn't correct as you'd need to have the manna base able to support the double green. Alternative options off the top of my head include Ixalan's Binding, Cast Out, Forsake the Worldly, Naturalize, Broken Bond, Crushing Canopy, Kefnet's Last Word, Negate or Spell Swindle. I must admit Carnage Tyrant is almost a good enough reason to go into green itself if you don't mind the hefty price tag.

Instead of Cast Down I would use cards such as Cast Out or Seal Away since Hazoret the Fervent is very strong in the current standard meta game. At least build a sideboard to include these additions since you don’t want to lose against Gods. e.g.The Scarab God
