Creeping Corrosion Discussion
3 days ago
I love Abzan! Here are some suggestions:
1:Improve your creatures
Sylvan Caryatid would be helpful, too.
2:Improve your mana-base
Cut Sandsteppe Citadel.
3:Improve your spells
Replace them with Fatal Push, Thoughtseize, Go for the Throat, Path to Exile, and Dismember or Maelstrom Pulse. Any of these two removal spells should be a playset(4), but all of them are just about the same.
3:Sideboard for Modern
Cut literally everything.
Stony Silence could be useful too.
If you choose to run Go for the Throat, sideboard a third removal option that can hit anything.
Leyline of Sanctity can hose just about any deck.
I couldn't really fit this stuff in without you cutting some other useful stuff, but cards like Kitchen Finks, Dark Confidant, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or Blind Obedience could worm their way into your deck.

Hey, thanks a ton for the recommendations! The bow, to me, doesn't serve as much purpose as I'd like against flyers- by only dealing 2 damage, the biggest threat I feel like it could take out would be a Kaalia of the Vast (not to say that's not a highly important, but it's extremely narrow in a matchup I'd likely be on the back foot from the getgo anyway), and I believe it's main role would be, as you'd mentioned previously, anti-graveyard-hate (anti-anti-graveyard?).
Bitterblossom is one of my favorite cards of all time! Unfortunately, this deck has zero lifegain, and plans on running every single fetch and shock land it can. Despite being a 40 life format, the addition of Bitterblossom when I'm already paying so much just to maintain my land/colour consistency would put me on a very real clock compared to some other EDH decks.
You've already outlined my main aversions for Chronozoa and Hornet Nest, although the latter is somewhat more appealing because I'm inherently a fan of kitchen table politics, and it's a huge enabler of such.
However, when it comes to Nyx Weaver, I think you're right. It does everything I want it to do- stocks the graveyard, blocks a flier, and recurs an important piece as needed. I'm thinking of rotating Creeping Corrosion back out for it- thoughts?
The rest of the cards mentioned are a little too linear for my tastes- this deck thrives on it's flexibility, and unfortunately the rest mentioned shoehorn themselves into their specific roles. Spidersilk Armor is probably the most intriguing, but ends up as not only a dead slot in hand if my opponent's air force isn't threatening, but is also a dead slot in the grave due to the fact of it being a non-creature. Unfortunately, the same can be said for Corrosive Gale!
I'm thinking of rotating in Bone Shredder. Whether this ends up being in place of Shriekmaw or in addition to it remains to be seen. It seems like quite a mana investment (even at just ), but with the potential to kill one flyer and then block another, it seems like it may be worth... Although I'm not entirely convinced yet.
Lastly, I've gotten a few games in with Path of Discovery and I gotta say I'm seriously impressed- every game it's been in my hand I've windmill slammed it onto the table as soon as possible, and have gotten fantastic value out of it. Similar to Embalmer's Tools, it's usually overlooked by opponents until it's too late and I enjoy that a lot! So thank you!

I'm not sure I'm the person to ask for advice on a competitive non-budget deck, but I second Arbor Elf+Utopia Sprawl. Perhaps a 1-2xHeroic Intervention. If you're going to keep blue, you might consider Freed from the Real on an Arbor Elf - with a Utopia Sprawl down, that will be infinite mana as soon as T3. Bloom Tender+Freed from the Real will do it, too. But I don't think that's the direction you should go. I'd say drop blue and go mono-green. Swap Llanowar Elves for Arbor Elf. If you're keen to keep blue, you might take a look at my deck, Taptics, which revolves around Kiora's Follower and infinite untap.
Other stuff: I actually think 1xRogue's Passage is pretty decent - it might be useful to you, especially if you're loaded with mana. I'd also recommend 1xCreeping Corrosion and/or Hurkyl's Recall in the sideboard, and a Beast Within or two.

for sideboard i like Shapers' Sanctuary in the side board for cheap semi-anti removal.
Display of Dominance is really good for liliana and the newly unbanned jace.

Karueeveedeen To add onto that the deck also only plays 19 lands as is, and getting 5 of them is tough. Even playing a 4 drop doesn't feel good, but there's no cheaper replacement for Creeping Corrosion.

Karueeveedeen I've tried Fracturing Gust over Creeping Corrosion but the one extra mana is just too much, especially in the affinity match up where you usually wont have a 5th turn. The extra reach to hit enchantments doesn't seem too relevant because there aren't really any enchantments that hoses the deck. In addition the boggles math up is already just a race. Although I could see playing Fracturing Gust if your meta has a couple boggles decks or some random prison decks. Again, the card isn't bad, just in my opinion its too slow for this strategy.
