Np dude! Can't tell if the FTV versions you have listed are owned by you or if it's just the default in the database, but I have a FTV Grove of the Burnwillows, Maze of Ith, and Ancient Tomb if you need 'em. No pressure if not; just lmk!

Thanks, man: people don't tend to think of voltron decks as being competitive, so that's why a labeled it as a casual deck.

The main reason I like Holy Mantle is because it offers evasion, and I feel like that's arguably the most important type of enchantment, but if I replace it with Stranglehold that brings me down to 18 auras, which is a little scary, and if I remove Snake Umbra, that leaves me with just 17 auras, compared to the 19 that you have. You sure that's not too low? Also, by adding Stranglehold, should I just scrap Aven Mindcensor?

At the very least I need Replenish, but I don't mind getting rid of Retether and replacing it with Regrowth. Board wipes aren't so bad during the early goings, but I tend to get focused because of how powerful Uril, The Mistalker gets in such a short period of time.

I don't mind exchanging Grasp of Fate with Cast Out because it does more for less, but I love Cast Out's instant speed.

I don't have copies of Grove of the Burnwillows or Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers, but I have City of Brass, Mana Confluence and Horizon Canopy. The additional fetch lands are cool, but given how few basics I would have and the fact that I'd be limited to fetching only one type of basic is a concern.

I'm completely at ease with most of your suggestions: my only worries are decreasing the total number of auras in my deck and acquiring those off-color fetch lands, but I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

I'm a big fan of the update, the deck has come a long way. However there still are a few things that I think would make the deck better still:

  • Unravel the Aether -> Qasali Pridemage

  • Rounding out the curve so that it has the look of a descending staircase. To do this we need to replace a 3-drop with either a 1-, 2-, or 4-drop. Snake Umbra is definitely the weakest 3-drop.

  • Holy Mantle could still probably be replaced. I still find this card to be really unimpressive at 4 mana.

  • Lastly, Grasp of Fate is still missing. This card is really hard to pass up.

I don't want this to get lost in translation over multiple posts so I'll try to fix the curve and you can either agree or disagree with my adjustments...

You mentioned getting rid of the color fixing enchants like Abundant Growth and Unbridled Growth, but those are there for multiple reasons. They add to enchantment count (for both Ancestral Mask & Ethereal Armor), can filter and/or draw cards, and provide early game fixing. There is not really a need to remove them as they actually do more than you think.

Do you find yourself getting board wiped that much that you need the second Replenish effect in Retether? If not, I'd just replace it with Regrowth. If so, just leave it.

The lands that I suggested were...Grove of the Burnwillows, Horizon Canopy, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, more fetches, and Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers. They will be better than the speed lands and with the replacement of more basic lands, better than the check lands as well. I definitely would not get rid of all your basics though.

My suggestion for your ideal land base would be...

1x Ancient Tomb

1x Misty Rainforest

1x Cavern of Souls

1x Arid Mesa

1x Command Beacon

1x Command Tower

1x Contested Cliffs

1x City of Brass

1x Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers

3x Forest

1x Verdant Catacombs

1x Horizon Canopy

1x Grove of the Burnwillows

2x Mountain

1x Scalding Tarn

4x Plains

1x Marsh Flats

1x Plateau

1x Mana Confluence

1x Flooded Strand

1x Sacred Foundry

1x Savannah

1x Stomping Ground

1x Bloodstained Mire

1x Taiga

1x Temple Garden

1x Windswept Heath

1x Wooded Foothills

I also love that you have this deck tagged as "casual," this deck is a far cry from casual. Lol

You could also probably benefit from including these in addition to original duals in your mana base: Grove of the Burnwillows, Horizon Canopy, Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers, Mana Confluence, City of Brass, and more fetches.

A lot of the aforementioned duals are at the very least better options than the speed lands and with the addition of more non-basics probably the check lands too.

Sir would you like to splash green?

You could run Healing Leaves, Nature's Claim, or Heroes' Reunion. I ask because Grove of the Burnwillows is amazing here.

Could I interest you in splashing green? If you did you can run: Healing Leaves, Nature's Claim, or even Primal Command. I am suggesting this for the spiciest tech, Grove of the Burnwillows.
