Disowned Ancestor Discussion
2 weeks ago
I've had good success with Skinshifter. In the rare events you can't find or a Doran/assault formation are getting removed, a 4/4 trample can still put in work.
Disowned Ancestor is something i've been testing. Mixed success but it's not a bad 1-drop if you feel you want to speed things up a bit.
Best of luck, such a fun deck to play albeit sometimes inconsistent. Here is my list that is ever changing: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/backwards-assault/

Disowned Ancestor turn 1 creature that dodges bolt
Shape the Sands strict upgrade to tower defense
Kin-Tree Invocation turn 2, make a creature that helps stabilize your board if you don't have your formation or doran out yet

She's amazing! I like how many different directions you can go with her, and how competitive or casual you can choose to be. I did not realize how hard it is to shut down the sacrifice engine once it got started until I actually played it. The biggest weakness I've seen has been cards like Grafdigger's Cage and Rest in Peace, but she is even resilient to a lot of common board wipes, which is great!
I originally had Oona's Blackguard in the deck, but thought I would be doing a lot more combat damage than I have been and was afraid it was going to enter the "mass discard" category that I was trying to avoid. From initial play testing though, I usually am only attacking early on to get dethrone triggers before board states get crazy. I will definitely throw it in there and see how it performs.
I recently put Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in to make sure my Tainted Lands enter untapped, and because my primary color is black. Do you think this is necessary? I could easily see cutting that card to put in another "expensive" but useful card.
Also thanks for the help! :)

Marchesa is just wonderful isnt she? So many useful things you could do.
Oona's Blackguard is sweet. All those free counters youre picking up turn right into whittling away at your opponent. You have a limited number of ways to generate card advantage in this deck so far, so forcing a discard here and there while doing what you want to be doing anyway will help level the playing field.
Also, youre over one card, so Id look at cutting Disowned Ancestor (just doesnt do enough,) and a land. 38 should be lots. That will make room for the Blackguard.

You should definitely be running Assault Formation, as it gives you the Doran effect but is much easier to cast and much harder to remove.
I am confused why Winding Constrictor is in the deck, I don't see any synergies with the counter ability.
Disowned Ancestor as another 1 drop 4/4 to fill out the bottom of your curve even more.
Skinshifter's ability to become a 0/8 plant is great for it's mana cost, and it has other modes as well if you don't have Doran out.

As you can probably tell, the main focus in this deck is white, or more importantly creature focus. Nyx-Fleece Ram, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, God-Pharaoh's Faithful, and a splash of Green, Treefolk Harbinger. I have given some thought to Disowned Ancestor, but it isn't really strictly better, in the sense that outlast isn't really a powerful ability and we would have to add in more black mana, which seems like a hassle, and wouldn't make the deck any better. If you would like to make this deck, I suggest sticking with white and green as the focus because they have more good toughness cards without defender. (aka a better selection.) Thanks for the suggestion anyway!

As Grunyarth said, both Yoked Ox and Tasseled Dromedary are great.In my own Doran deck (Doran's Gonna Get Your Head Kicked In) I play both of them, and also Disowned Ancestor, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer and Nyx-Fleece Ram.
Although similar, I think Grizzled Leotau is not as good as the rest because it's mana cost is pretty specific, but it's nice too.
I don't think Sapling of Colfenor is very useful because there are about 25 other creatures in your deck so once in 4 turns, you gain about 3 life and draw a card. Without this ability, it's "just" a 5/5 indestructible, but when you practically can cast a 4/4 in turn 1, sapling is quite useless.
Rhox Faithmender is awesome.
