Artful Dodge or Distortion Strike are other options. Mizzium Skin good for if you have 2 Eternals in play.

Interesting build, +1

Cartouche of Knowledge seems to cost , just as Spectral Flight. Though I'm considering it, it results in only a 4/4 double strike flier, and not 5/5 double strike flier (2 less damage per attack), which is why I haven't outright added it and I'll have to test its usefulness. I'm still trying 1 Slip Through Space over a 3rd Distortion Strike, and I'm not really convinced.

As for removal, I guess I could run some extra removal, though adding 3 more targeted removal seems overkill. I don't know why I would ever need so much removal when I have 2 board wipes! Though board wipes can set me back as well (obviously), Selfless Spirit has been very helpful since I started playing it. I'm curious: you seem to advocate for siding Day of Judgment and playing more targeted creature removal in its place. Why? Has it worked better for you in the past?

Hey, thanks for the reply and support! I will eventually use something like Distortion Strike, Slip Through Space, Artful Dodge or Spirit Mantle to make Yavimaya Enchantress unblockable. I just have to see what to sub out and how my first rounds with this deck go. I had very good results with the Selesnya version of this deck, but I feel this one has better synergy and reliability.

As with my other decks, I'll be constantly updating it every time I find a more successful way of doing things.

Thanks again for the comment!

I absolutely love this deck.

Distortion Strike might not be bad to use on a Yavimaya Enchantress and swing for heavy damage.

Again, I absolutely love this, might have to use some of these ideas in my Bant Wall deck.

+1 from me, friend!

You've got Distortion Strike and probably better Slip Through Space for good evasion.

For flavour and more birds from Dovescape you could use Taigam’s Strike instead.

Clarification needed on whether Dovescape checks for total CMC of split cards but something like Commit/Memory is good support if so - and/or Dusk just because.

In the same vein, Retribution of the Meek, Fell the Mighty and Kirtar's Wrath are good wipes for token decks along with Austere Command that you already have.

I'd suggest putting in Temur Battle Rage in stead of Rush of Adrenaline. double Strike is vital for the deck and a second card that grant it along with trample is really helpful . I'm also a bigger fan of Slip Through Space than Distortion Strike since it draws you a card.You also might want to considere replacing Serum Visions with Opt, the instant speed gives you access to some combat tricks. The coice between these two is mostly up to the player though.

Why not replace artful dodge with Distortion Strike?
