Gilded Goose Discussion

After a bunch more games I’ve found that a 4/4 with flying is much better then a 4/4 with death touch. So Gilded Goose over the 1/1 deathtouchers. I’m also getting even more into Wildborn Preserver, I win games when I play it, eating an early rogue or red aggro creature and late game making an unaccounted attacker on their end step. Reach helps against many decks as well. Every time I cast Scavenging Ooze it just gets itself killed. So I’m thinking Wildborn Preserver for game one and Scavenging Ooze in the sideboard.

Crawling Barrens seems like it should be great here, but in practice the deck almost never has enough mana to activate Crawling Barrens and mutate it on the same turn.

I’ve decided to cut down to three Brokkos, Apex of Forever which makes more sense since it’s legendary and forever and added a Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig

So now the deck is nothing but mythics and rares other then Ram Through

Dense Foliage or Aspect of Mongoose are good defense for Animar.

Scuttlemutt can come out cheap and make mana but most importantly it can change the color of something to take advantage of Animar's protection abilities.

Birds of Paradise is one of the only cards that get Animar out on turn 2 besides the Gilded Goose i see you already have in there

Forge of Heroes

Mindclaw Shaman can be amazing depending on your meta, Shaman of the Great Hunt works great in my Animar deck.

zapyourtumor Gilded Goose offers utility that Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch does not. The synergy with Vraska, Golgari Queen was an unintended upside.

The extra point of toughness helps dodge common removal like Wrenn and Six and Lava Dart.

The ability to generate Food tokens also makes Gilded Goose a better top deck in the aggressive match-ups.

Is it really worth using Gilded Goose instead of Noble Hierarch/Birds of Paradise just for Vraska, Golgari Queen? I feel like the benefits don't outweigh the drawbacks.

Gilded Goose is a true commander.

I'd run more ramp through rocks or cards like Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, or Kodama's Reach for mana fixing.

I enjoy the lack of Hermit Druid combo degeneracy in this deck. Very fair and fun deck you have. :^)

Arboreal Grazer works better in decks with high land count, like 25+ easily. For your deck I think Gilded Goose would make more sense if you really want a 1 mana ramp card. At least it won't be a 1 mana do nothing like Arboreal Grazer often will be.

I'm not sure why you run 4 Whisper Squad since it's normally used as sacrificial fodder which you don't need, but if you like playing them maybe you could mix in some Blood for Bones to get the most out of them. It would also be nice +2 fodder Vraska, Golgari Queen if you played one, which you should probably consider too.

Unexpected Fangs is pretty underwhelming. +1/+1 on your Void Beckoner or Titanoth Rex won't make much difference, and they might even already have a lifelink counter from Unbreakable Bond. If you use it just to help defend early on, you could just play some Mire Triton instead. They make excellent deathtouch blockers, they gain you 2 life and even mill you some cards. All kinds of things you want to get to your late game plan.

I'm guessing you're trying to keep the deck budget, but obviously mixing in some Overgrown Tomb would help the mana base a lot too.

Hopefully these suggestions are helpful, cheers!
