I went undefeated on game day with budget B/W warriors. Hidden Dragonslayer was an all-star card. Also, Blood-Chin Fanatic is great for Flinging your guys to finish up a game.

Magmarashi thank you for the math correction, I was mistaking it with Shrapnel Blast :P.. I like Fling > Collateral Damage but i prefer Temur Battle Rage simply because of instant speed.. i can't tell you how many times that combat trick has either won the game or outplayed in some form of the other

Nova Chaser + Temur Battle Rage = 20 Damagethen + Collateral Damage would mean that it is = 23 damage, not 25. If instead you do Fling you will total out to 30 damage. :D

Consider for Damage: Fling, Assault Strobe

Consider for Mana Ramp: Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song, Desperate Ritual, and Simian Spirit Guide

I would suggest adding more sac outlets so your opponents don't get their stuff back. try adding things like Fling or Ashnod's Altar.

Thanks faolmor92, I would've never thought to put in Fling but it's a great idea.

Hi! I just came across this build because I'm looking for some inspiration for a similar deck I'm wanting to build. I hate to necro a thread, but this is my two cents.

Assuming you have the money to afford the mana-base, I'd run Vexing Shusher over Brindle Shoat. The token is alright early-mid game, but as soon as you get off a Mycoloth, let alone an UNCOUNTERABLE Mycoloth, it's off to the races.

IMO, you're running too many late game plays. Broodmother is a great card, but by the time you get to play it, the game should be over unless you're facing control, which will likely counter/wipe it anyways. I'd swap in some later mentioned cards. And, on top of that, you don't need the guy that gives you an Eldrazi spawn, since that won't be doing too much for you, and doesn't really fit the theme. Maybe sideboard in a Feed the Pack or two to swap off creatures you've swung in with for more tokens/blockers?

Also, don't run that many Mycoloths. I'd say a 3-1 split of 3 Mycoloths to 1 Thromok the Insatiable. Thromok late game (after you've put out a fair amount of Myco-tokens) is an absolute bomb, let alone when paired with a Fists of Ironwood, but I'd suggest an even better piece: Ring of Kalonia. You have to pay the equip cost, which can be a pain, but with a little ramp it's definitely doable, and it's harder to get rid of as opposed to a 2-for-1 vs creature removal. Plus, it puts much needed counters on Mycoloth each turn, increasing token generation further.

Speaking of the ramp, I'd suggest a set, or at least 3 Gyre Sages + Ring of Kalonia. More mana per turn, plus evolve, and after maybe 5 counters, I'd say green mana is irrelevant unless you plan on playing out your hand.

For card draw, the obvious choice for devour decks is Fecundity because of the 'may' clause. If you do plan on swapping this in, it's definitely suggested to use a Reliquary Tower or two to compensate for the mass draw.

I like Fling in the sideboard for lifegain decks, maybe even a few Leyline of Punishments for that scenario.

Ulasht and Garruk aren't doing all that much for you, I'd suggest swapping them out for a copy or two of Vigor or Archetype of Endurance to protect your fatties from 2 and 3 drop removal spells. Maybe the Ulasht earns a spot in the sideboard, but I don't really see it. I'd focus more on burn spells like Lightning Bolt/Lightning Strike to remove early threats like Rabblemasters and Confidants (or whatever your friends play), and DEFINITELY 2 Courser of Kruphix in place of your Predator Dragons to keep an early play out of burn range yourself.

Lastly, my favorite consideration, I would highly consider a few Hornet Nests for this build. Early game, it's enough of a threat against most small creatures that'll give you a couple tokens, but late game, it definitely deters opponents from attacking you unless it's a trampler for lethal, because for three mana, it could give you anywhere from 5-8+ evasive deathtouch blockers. For THREE STINKIN MANA.

But yeah, that's just my opinion.

Overall, solid idea, but you need more draw, better ramp, and some better creatures for the modern meta assuming you're not on too hefty of a budget if you're still considering this deck. +1'd!

I've been playtesting it and there are definitely flops. I think pulling Frenzied Goblin out for Legion Loyalist will help more with the swarm theme/buffed Denny ( Foundry Street Denizen ). Maybe tossing in a Gitaxian Probe or two to peek into your opponent's hand to clear your combo for take off as well as cantrip. Gempalm Incinerator isn't doing as much work as I thought he would. Maybe Goblin Grenade for consistent damage, the Fling you suggested would be a great finisher, or Mogg Maniac for stalling. This deck is a blast to play and I can't wait to see it perfected, even just for casual play.

Argeaux Those are fun cards indeed! I've always loved Shrapnel Blast, want to make some messed up AEther Vial with it and Epochrasite again...

Aggressive Mining looks really neat actually.

BLEATH Hehe, I've had that happen a few times. Leveler is on my list though, I really like do or die cards and decks. I had a deck awhile ago I might rebuild that played AEther Vial Epochrasite (and other critters who can be exploited via vial--Snappy's great! and Shrapnel Blast. With cards like Fling, Lightning Greaves, maybe Immolating Souleater and Leveler I bet a cool deck could be had.. Working on it slowly!
