Glistening Oil Discussion
3 days ago
goldlion: Honestly, the most likely cuts for Cryptolith Rite, Driven / Despair, and Glistening Oil are Necroskitter, Midnight Banshee, and Exotic Orchard. But that drives my creature count even lower, making Survival of the Fittest a less and less good card... It’s hard to balance things.

TheRedGoat: Thanks for the thoughts/suggestions! The only pieces that care about -1 counters being on the creature when they die are Necroskitter and Blowfly Infestation - the former may get cut, and the latter mostly sticks stuff on my own creatures (so it's not a problem really). The deck mostly cares about the -1 placement itself :)
And regarding your suggestions - Plaguemaw Beast is interesting, but I'm not super convinced that it's worth the 5 mana and waiting for summoning sickness to wear off... Poison-Tip Archer isn't really worth the 4 mana to me, though I could see it fitting into my sideboard for the additional usefulness of having reach (this deck struggles with fliers). Driven / Despair is actually something I want to fit back into the deck when I find space for it (it may replace Necroskitter)! Rishkar, Peema Renegade just seems like a less good version of Cryptolith Rite here, another card I'm trying to fit in (too few slots, bleh). Quillspike recently got cut because he was too fragile, dies from a single counter, and is only really useful with Devoted Druid. Flourishing Defenses is just too much mana for its effect, unfortunately. Harbinger of Night just got cut - he was just too slow and tended to cause problems. Blight Sickle is not efficient enough, in my opinion (I'd rather run Glistening Oil, ANOTHER possible inclusion), and while Hex Parasite is cute against opposing PWs and maybe could find a home in the sideboard, he doesn't advance my game plan enough to put him in the main deck.
Thank you again for the suggestions! :)

There already is an oil card Glistening Oil. This is the oil you speak of.

I'll link you to a buddy's deck of mine.
40-45 lands is way too much, you should be fine running 36 lands at first and than adjust from there. Adjusting your curve is also an idea you think about before you buy the cards. Think about the essentials for your deck before adding on cards that gives synergy, and than add in cards that will help you get results.

IMO I say that Myco+Forge combo too slow and unreliable, why tutor for protection when you can use them to gain advantage? You don't want to dilute your deck too much by spreading it thin.

Young Wolf, Nihil Spellbomb, Ugin's Nexus, Midnight Reaper, Filigree Familiar, Glistening Oil, No Rest for the Wicked, Aspect of Mongoose, and Grim Haruspex are all decent cards for this deck, and work well with the Bros and the rest!

Damage Doubling all day long Dictate of the Twin Gods and Wound Reflection double damage for the quick win. Second infect, Grafted Exoskeleton,Glistening Oil, and Phyresis put infect on your cmdr or Psychosis Crawler for the quick competitive win and maybe add one more tutor
