I've thought about Novice Knight it can still eat removal though but it is good as a blocker. I feel like Deeproot Champion does this better since he can be played on the same turn and he benefits from all enchantments.

and yep I think Dub should probably go, I was unsure about it at first but yep Oakenform seems a lot better here. My bad.

How good is Druid of Horns in this deck? I've never really found a use for him and I feel like he is the inverse of Thorn Lieutenant

Thank you for your suggestions, I actually cut out Shalai, Voice of Plenty because it was too high on my curve, but I'm going to replace the Thorn Lieutenant with the Deeproot Champion. I needed more payoff for the enchamnets. I actually used to run 2 Dub instead of a play set Oakenform. Might go back to that.

I have been curious about this as well.

I'm not sure if Deeproot Champion potentially works here or Adventurous Impulse???

Also what about Remorseful Cleric and Deathgorge Scavenger in sideboard for graveyard stuff?

Also why did Thrashing Brontodon get removed?

I like the deck though, been wanting to do something with Satyr Enchanter

Boza No that idea wouldn't work for bigger midrange cards...because that sounds more like a midrange approach and I don't think that would work very well...hexproof can still get exiled and deathtouched so the only viable card I would pick from that group is carnage tyrant because of it's threat.

landofMordor I think the same can be said about any deck when Settle the Wreckage is involved, but would you use Spell Pierce or Negate to counter it though? I mean UW + splash of green should have an answer here I think.

beyond that should have potential with this deck from a GW standpoint are smaller cards that turn into big threats later and you should be able to load up a lot of enchantments.

As much as I like the idea of this list, I feel like it needs some corners rounded off. Glint-Sleeve Siphoner needs a lot of energy support to reliably replace bob. I'd far rather run Phyrexian Arena or even Underworld Connections- delaying cardraw by a turn in exchange for less disruptable card advantage feels better than possibly drawing a card.

A +1/+1 counter package seems like a bigger payoff than self mill with flayer, without Goyf or Taisugir shenanigans. Dipping more heavily into green with Experiment One, Avatar of the Resolute, Deeproot Champion/Quirion Dryad/Vinelasher Kudzu, Managorger Hydra etc feels like it should get more from jund's hand disruption without the big-bucks cards.

Deeproot Champion since you are playing green?

There is Quirion Dryad & Deeproot Champion as its second playset.

(Scute Mob, Dragonmaster Outcast, Death's Shadow, Serra Ascendant, Jace's Phantasm...)

White has Jotun Grunt, which can act as a weird hybrid of goyf and ooze, and is devastating against decks that utilize their graveyard.And there is Moldgraf Scavenger, and Exemplar of Strength (which is miles better in a deck that runs things like Quillspike or Nest of Scarabs).There is plenty to choose from.

Wow. I like this deck a lot. Lots of fun synergies, goofy stuff with lands, and great addition of Deeproot Champion. The testing I have done with this list that merfolk packs a huge punch if you get it out early. Well done, sir, upvote from me.
