Thanks drunktank! I revised it a bit and it's been working great now with 3 Poison-Tip Archer and 3 Slimefoot, the Stowaway . I took out the Doom Whisperer too. Not even sure I shouldn't take out one or both of the Demon of Catastrophes for more removal spells and/or another Incubation Druid .

A quick rundown of the first changes I'd try to implement.

Add:

Remove/trim:

You'll want some way to deal with artifacts and enchantments, possibly Seal of Cleansing in the sideboard.

You don't have valuable many-for-ones ( Merciless Eviction , eg); if you want more play versus aggro decks you might add some. Languish , Dusk / Dawn , things like that.

Also you don't have exile-versions of removal, but white and black are good for it, if you wanted to give up some of the "sacrifice for insane value" plan. Utter End and its variants.

I love this deck, and so cheap too!!! Unfortuately I have no suggestions other than Demon of Catastrophes . +1 for sure.

What sac outlets do you have for the Demon of Catastrophes ? Really the only thing you have is the Fungal Infection tokens, which works well but you can't totally rely on that, and the rest of your creatures I dont think you really want to lose?

Thanks for the upvote and comment, Siisyphus.

Midnight Reaper can put you in precarious position if you're not careful. Part of the reason I use cards like Moment of Craving , Vicious Rumors and Vraska's Contempt they give me a little bit of life gain to help offset the life loss from Reaper triggers, Arguel's Blood Fast and Doom Whisperer. The main reason I ended up dropping Rite of Belzenlok is that I didn't need to rely on the tokens for payments on playing Demon of Catastrophes and Plaguecrafter (When is was main board.) or to sate the Demon token each turn.

Hi Snivy__!

Actually I just updated the list yesterday taking out the Demon of Catastrophes just for the reasons you say. I would see it perfectly in any deck that has some protection in form of counterspells or protection spells, but that's certainly not the case here.

As for the Seraph of the Scales I took it out for Elenda, the Dusk Rose . I believe she has a lot more synergy with the deck, and can leave at least as many tokens as the Seraph. A common case, I imagine, will be casting her on turn 4, activating the Priest of Forgotten Gods and boom! That's already 3 +1/+1 counters on Elenda! :D

I considered Hero of Precinct One as a replacement for Hunted Witness . I'll definitely test for it, because despite being slower, the upside on the Hero is quite astounding.

Finally, I also considered a Green splash, not only for Journey to Eternity  Flip but also for Poison-Tip Archer which is pretty effective Blood Artist effect. I will definitely consider it more, and test for it now that you've mentioned it as well.

Thanks a lot for commenting and for your suggestions! :D
