Dive Down


Target creature you control gets +0/+3 and gains hexproof until end of turn. (It can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.)

Since Amass focuses so heavily on you having a single large token out, protecting said token is really important. Instead of Crush Dissent, I would probably run Lazotep Plating and/or maybe Dive Down .

Diregraf Ghoul also feels a bit out of place imo. You could maybe replace that with Lazotep Reaver as an early drop and amass enabler.

I had not considered Spirit of the Spires , which can certainly fit right in, the only drawback being that instead of casting 2 or 3 creatures on turn 3, you might need to hold 1 creature until turn 4 or 5 before you can play it. My idea was that when I cast High Alert on turn 3, I should already be able to attack for up to 12 and my opponent may not yet have counters ready. I then only need to get through 1 further attack behind Aegis of the Heavens and Dive Down for game (theoretically possible on turn 4). Everything is about tempo. I had trouble justifying Law-Rune Enforcer (extra disruption/blocker-negation), to myself, and had considered Pegasus Courser , Concordia Pegasus and another flier for that slot.

The idea of transforming the whole deck into fliers is certainly tempting and something to consider. I would still try to concentrate on tough 1 and 2 drop creatures.

I know you're running on a budget, but even then Shock and Lightning Strike are both really bad. You might consider running more Dive Down or Abrade , which will help protect your dudes. You also seem super light on lands. I'd recommend running at least 18.

I tried a variant of this deck at an FNM, where I replaced Aeromunculus with Jadelight Ranger . It worked a lot better than I expected. Had very bad draws and was totally mana-flooded on 3 of 11 games played, but still won 6 of 11 games. The only deck that thrashed me was a red deck wins deck.

The big thing is to get counters on creatures as early as possible, then proliferate (strangely not adapt) does the rest. Hadana's Climb  Flip did no work at all, and maybe replacing it with Dive Down would provide some extra protection.

Hi, looks like a fun list. Golden Guardian  Flip is especially spicy ! Have you thought of Dive Down because I think this deck is so dependent of its commander, you need all the Release to the Wind and Teferi's Time Twist . Just thinking :p

Brawl on!

Sculpted the deck a bit based on suggestions. Thanks btw. :) Still wondering about options for countering, creatures ( Blight Mamba , Phyrexian Crusader , Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , Ichorclaw Myr , etc.), protecting the creatures ( Dive Down , Mizzium Skin , etc.), penetration ( Artful Dodge , etc.), boost ( Larger Than Life , Predator's Strike , more Vines of Vastwood , etc.), mana base, etc. Sideboard needs overhaul too. Phew!

Best type of thing I've seen so far is using Tenth District Legionnaire , Dreadhorde Butcher or Dreadhorde Arcanist plus all the best pump spells and just trying to win asap. I've had a go at jeskai angel tribal with Dive Down s. Haven't had much success but my deck isn't exactly optimal. There might be something to be said for running cards that have a lower opportunity cost such as Ral's Outburst , Hypothesizzle or even jaya's greeting(http://mythicspoiler.com/war/cards/jayasgreeting.html) in a more midrange grindy shell.
