Big Game Hunter is an obscure option as well if you go the madness route. I'm using one on my sideboard right now because he's good against Gurmag Angler decks and good with Liliana of the Veil.

if you have a Gurmag Angler or 2 that yeard doesn't seem like it would take long to pile up.

MrCuddlefish thanks for your input!

I like your suggestion of running white fog effects over green. The deck tends to have access to white mana more often than green.

Vapor Snag seems like a great card in the board to get around threats such as Gurmag Angler and push through for those crucial last points of damage.

So far, Caustic Caterpillar has been impressive out of the board. Having another creature to crew vehicles has proven to be helpful.

Thank you for your detailed input! The deck will benefit from it.

PauperPower, thank you! Your feedback is great for helping me brew the deck.

I love Gurmag Angler, he was in this list when i started this. But I felt that Threshold and Delve doesn't work well together. But the Monarch is an interesting sugestion! I need draw with this kind of deck!

Pulse of Murasa is another great card. The thing is, after testing, the deck takes some turns before starting to do something. In our LGS, there are RDW, Stompy and Burn. 6 Life is almost irrelevant. Gnaw to the bone gives twice that life easily!

Mephitic Vapors is interesting. I didnt consider It, but now that you mention, I need to find a slot for It!!

About Faerie, I need It to break Ghostly Flicker combos. I hate that card! Lol Edicts are there because of Bogles and Heroic (also in my LGS).

Finally, I wanted to try Caterpillars Instead of Natural State because Im afraid of milling it accidentaly. And, Grapple with the Past helps me find Caterpillars If I need again.

Thank you once again for your interest in helping me on my brew! I'll report my matches soon!

You can always throw in a few delve threats like Sultai Scavenger and Gurmag Angler.

A copy of Thorn of the Black Rose could be great card draw for the deck. Maybe Pulse of Murasa instead of Gnaw? Gnaw could still be great in the sideboard though.

Also maybe move the Edicts to the board and cut the Faeries, and just main board Bojuka Bog.

Mephitic Vapors could be another great card for the board. I also just like Natural State over the caterpillars.

Either way I think you're on to something here, +1!

I would run Street Wraith over Liliana of the Veil. Cut Raging Ravine and Treetop Village for 4 Verdant Catacombs, and find room for Gurmag Angler. Also, swap Grim Flayer for another Dark Confidant.

Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip is interesting as a pseudo Bob.

Lose the Terminate for Fatal Push and Assassin's Trophy #3.

Dual Shot and mainboard Electrickery are conditionally good but often bad. MBC seems really big online, now, and it's pretty dead against them. With eleven main-deck removal spells and a little more help post-board, I think the split is about as good as it's getting, in that regard.

The trilands would be useful, but also don't power up Skred. Hitting a Gurmag Angler at instant speed always feels nice. Between all the cantrips and Trinket Mage, I almost always find fixing to be passable; most games go as such that you really only need one source of the nonblue colors, which is much more forgiving.

I think the SB can be adjusted. Haven't seen Inside Out combo in ages. More sweepers or Pyroblasts might be in order. In general, I have favorable win percentages outside of Delver and stompy, but I'm not sure how much more we can realistically do to prepare for those matchups.

Thank you for the comment!

Chainer's Edict really shines in UB Gurmag Angler decks that fill their graveyard with Forbidden Alchemy and Probe. I tend to avoid decks that are overly dependent on their graveyard because of all the graveyard hate, which we can play around at instant speed.
