I really like the idea of adding Thud or Fling to the deck.

I feel like you need more draw. You want to ensure you draw into your land drops and support cards and not end up in topdeck mode. I'd lose Flaming Sword and add at least one more Warlord's Fury because of this. Temur Battle Rage is a great card and can serve as your instant-speed first-strike-tricks.

You could also add one each of Forgotten Cave and Tranquil Thicket if you like.

And consider squeezing in something like Adventurous Impulse or something for more hand control.

Also, maybe replace Fall of the Hammer with something like Fling or Collateral Damage because they can hit players too. Sack your creature to it right before it dies and get go "over" enemy creatures right to the opponent's face.

Just played your deck again and I forgot how much fun it is. I already upvoted from last time, but I think I have a great addition for it.

Have you considered Hamletback Goliath ? ;D

I think this would be the PERFECT deck for him. He grows stupidly big and you have the Fling and Thud spells and effects, not to mention ways to give him Trample.

why don't use Fling as a finisher?

I like having 1 or 2 Collision / Colossus in this deck personally, korvold can get super fat but without trample it can be chump blocked pretty easy in this set with so many flyers and token makers. Fling is another consideration.

Nova Chaser has a few things wrong with it I've found that does not combo well at all.

1) Its does not have haste which lowers the aggressiveness of this deck substantially.

2) With Nova having the toughness of 2 the combo with Thunderkin Awakener is non-existent.

3) Nova's 4 cmc will never allow me to bring him back from the graveyard to the battlefield with Unearth . So if he gets wrecked as soon as he etb's? Well, I'm shit out of luck.

I had Tormenting Voice matched with Faithless Looting in my previous build. I'm actually playing around with the idea to run 3 Tormenting Voice and 4 Thrill of Possibility to see how well it will operate. At the moment Night's Whisper is a solid draw mechanic for 2 cmc that just feels really good. With this version I tend to hard cast my 3 drop elemental's more frequently then I had to in the past pre-faithless version anyway, so I'm actually considering cutting the discard aspect all together as you can see in the current build. So since Fling has made its way back into the line up as a solid tactic the discard aspect become more irrelevant.

Thanks for the suggestions though. I just feel its impossible to get this deck back being the turn 3 win it once was with Faithless Looting out of the picture. At least we have a solid turn 4-6 win ratio working for it.

As nice as it is to have a regenerative body on Experiment One , the ability to force through damage from the other 3 is just too nice to pass up (trample from Vivien, deathtouch on the Bow, and Ballista being able to Fling itself). I'm not sure what the right call is, but planned ways to "force" damage through can't be a bad idea, right?

@Sinkandswim - ahh.. i see.. it does feel underwhelming during turns 6 onward due to lack of card draw.. i'll see what i can do.. thanks for the comment!

@antlers12 - hmmm.. she is a good planeswalker for this deck! another possible redundancy for Soul's Fire and/or Fling ! However, she's still expensive.. I may pass for now, maybe wait next year when M20 rolls out of standard format.. Thanks!

@joratos801 - Territorial Allosaurus costs too high of a kicker spell at 7 CMC for a creature that can fight another creature and it's only a 5/5.. Thicket Elemental is not great. As much as it is a kicker spell, the ETB effect is minimal, when i want to cast my creatures to get the kicker cost.. I have already considered Deathforge Shaman and Torch Slinger , but ultimately removed them for better efficient kicker spells.. The casting cost for both is high for a couple of burn or possible removal of a X/2 creature on the battlefield.. But thanks anyway for the suggestions!

@hopito - Are you sure you're talking about Strionic Resonator or Illusionist's Bracers ? lol. but that card is interesting.. It can help burn each opponent twice for 2 mana, but it is still 2 additional mana along with more mana from kicking spells.. I might revise the deck to include a lot of ramp so that I can accommodate that, but thanks for the suggestion!
