hubatish on Whoops, I won.

I saw the Manamorphose and dropped in expecting storm. Freed from the Real is sweet, but a few cards make little sense:

Atarka's Command - wha?? This doesn't kill creatures, right?

Fauna Shaman - the only creature you can discard to search with is extra Fauna Shamans.

For the Bloom Tender half, what about Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl in addition? That mini combo is the basis of a bunch of sick Garruk Wildspeaker mono green devotion decks too.

I also suggest more cantrips rather than 7 wincons.

DemonDragonJ Vengevine sits in an awkward place in terms of power level inside of a draft. It provides a fast decently efficient clock that most more specialized rares in the set reasonably could not compete with. Also unlike most creatures with a form of self reanimation it can block, such as its like brother Bloodghast. Considering that MM3 SHOULD (Don't bitch out on us wizards) have better than average removal like PATH TO EXILE the relative power wont be as great compared to an average standard set to draft. Maybe wizards will incorporate dredge/self-mill as mechanics in this set and Vengevine will be a draft all-star. But yeah out side of draft in other formats Vengevine is a utility enabler with cards like Fauna Shaman and Survival of the Fittest, and nobody likes utility cards at mythic.

I think you might want some sort of discard effect to get some of those high casting cost creatures into your graveyard for reanimation.

Fauna Shaman, Lotleth Troll,Geier Reach Sanitarium,Mindslicer,These are a couple options.

As a fellow Meren player I approve of your deck. Sadistic Hypnotist is an excellent control card, especially against blue decks that don't use a lot of creatures.

PhotogenicParasympathetic: Thank you for the comment! :) I'll consider Undead Alchemist, though Vengeful Dead seems a bit win-more (it only REALLY does work in a more midrange and less all-out-combo build than this one). Noxious Ghoul was in this deck originally, but had to come out when it was killing all of my own combo pieces :( I wish I owned a Survival of the Fittest I really should get my hands on a gold-bordered copy. For now, though, Fauna Shaman does the trick well enough.

onemorevictim: Deadbridge Chant used to be in here, but got cut for two reasons. First, I found it too inconsistent - I like my reanimation to be reliable. Second, to be honest, choosing a random card in my GY got pretty tedious when my GY was 50+ cards, haha. Also, it's not a creature, which is generally a strike against cards in this deck.

Patolea: I'm so glad you like the deck! It's one of my favorites, too :) And you're 100% right about Avatar of Woe sucking here; I really do need to find something better for that slot. Perhaps you're right about Sheoldred, thanks!

kilgore: It's not a proper infinite combo until Dread is the last card in my library. But statistically speaking, as long as I have 3+ creatures before I start the loop, it almost always mills my entire deck. Mathematically, it's because milling four cards per zombie in two increments gives me a (4x.37-4x.37x.37)=93% chance of hitting at least one zombie and thus breaking even :)

Have you ever tried Fauna Shaman? In toolbox-style decks, this elf is even more effective than Dark Confidant. :)

How about Bob's ecologist cousin Fauna Shaman?

Jiven I actually had Ghostly Prison in my deck originally, but nobody I play with uses a token deck. I guess I should make a sideboard or something on here for people to reference... and I've never thought of using Fauna Shaman here and have never even heard of Guardian of the Gateless. I'll probably work Fauna Shaman in somewhere. Thank you!

Have you considered Fauna Shaman? also cards like Guardian of the Gateless and Ghostly Prison can help you overcome token strategies if they've become more typical in your meta.
