Haze of Pollen Discussion

Ware-wolf on Updated WU Challenger (Needs Help)

I also run a version of this deck, its greatest weakness is in how long it takes before you can cast two copies of Approach of the Second Sun. I went a different route in my construct and made it a Bant build. Rather than counter magic, I'm using a fog strategy with Haze of Pollen & Commencement of Festivities I also use Prophetic Prism Cultivator's Caravan Bounty of the Luxa all for some mana ramp and mana fixing. Also I have Nissa, Vital Force These are my suggestions but I understand Bant isn't for everybody

I agree with a lot of what was already said- except...You need 24 lands and 4 Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor.

Also stampede isnt my favorite. Haze of Pollen should be replaced with Heroic Intervention.

And you could really use some Savage Stomp

pixle_res I think you could get away with one, but not both. 4 colors without fetch lands is very taxing and difficult. If you chose one I would say green for the 2 fogs Haze of Pollen and Commencement of Festivities. They cut as a pseudo sweeper kind of by preventing the damage until you gain a bunch of life off of Fumigate. Push again is situational and I found if I was facing a lot of creatures Id rather have fogs than spot removal. But thats just because my local meta is a bit more aggressive. So Id say test both and see what works best at your store or play group. Hope I helped.

Okay, so this deck looks like it has potential. If I were you, I'd take out Gift of Paradise and move the Haze of Pollens to the sideboard. I'd put in another Polyraptor and two more Forerunner of the Empire to make your combo more prominent.

Then I'd recommend making the mana-base more efficient by taking out all the Stone Quarrys and Tranquil Expanses and replacing them with Inspiring Vantages and/or Scattered Groves and/or Sunpetal Grove. The Rootbound Crag is good. Maybe take the Evolving Wildss out and put in another and maybe two Sheltered Thickets.

Renegade Map and Luxa River Shrine can go. If you're looking for mana-fetching or life-gain, look no further than Ranging Raptors and Deathgorge Scavenger. Carnage Tyrant is good, too, if you have the money.

As far as sideboarding, Dinosaur Stampede is good, I'm not a dino guy so you'd have to make your own, but I'd suggest some more removal in your sideboard.

I hope some of these suggestions are useful. Good luck. Try to sleeve this up and play tonight or next week at your LGS. You got dis.

Yo, I love it! sweet deck! have you considered Primeval Titan? Haze of Pollen also has cycling so it could be useful. If you want a planeswalker you could have luck with Nissa, Steward of Elements. Good luck with it!

I came back to say that I tinkered with my own deck based off what you had put together with the cycling and Archfiend of Ifnir. It's a lot more fun and interactive now! I'd always wanted to fit Archfiend in somehow, and I could never make it work. Taking a step back and approaching from a cycling-first (via Archfiend, Vile Manifestation, and Abandoned Sarcophagus), -1/-1 counters second angle made it all come together very nicely. Now that the deck benefits from cycling cards, protection like Haze of Pollen are life savers. Great job!

Looking at the changes you've made, however, trying to change the deck to a WBG theme just for Angel of Invention and Anointed Procession seems like stretching it too thin (Grind / Dust's Dust can be cast with Channeler Initiate). U/W Gift likes Angel, and a variant of that would certainly enjoy the benefits of Procession, however.

Looks pretty solid, I would try and stick 2 Heroic Intervention into the sideboard.

Id love to see some maindeck interaction, besides protecting your stuff. Theres got to be a way to deal with Longtusk Cub, Hazoret the Fervent or The Scarab God to hedge against top tier builds, maybe even a Censor or Spell Pierce to buy a turn. The strategy and your offense looks really well investigated, it just needs some haymaker endgame or something to slow down the opponent enough to set up your team. Fog stuff like Haze of Pollen for example allows you to be on offensive and not die to RamuRed or Dinos. maybe just add a couple of 4-drops at least or something to thwart a Sweltering Suns. Maybe Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip to cast a Tishana, Voice of Thunder. Theres a ton of intense midrange decks in the meta to keep in mind.

Looks like a fun deck to play, Im hoping Kumena and Silvergill were the missing pieces to Merfolk being competitive in Standard +1

Great suggestions, Oculus84! I ran this deck with Drake Haven and/or Faith of the Devoted at some points both main- and sideboard, and they didn't do much. This deck's worst matchup, I would say, is UW Approach control. They usually have enough mana to get around Censor, Haze of Pollen doesn't do anything, and Gideon's Intervention kills this deck, so, naturally, I want more diverse wincons. That's where these two would come in, but draining 2 or making a 2/2 flier won't do much against lifegain. Stir the Sands just as underwhelming as Drake Haven.

I will put Countervailing Winds in the sideboard against control matchups, but Censor works well in main against tempo or curve-out aggro like Ramunap Red.

Kefnet, Kefnet, the least appreciated god, and yet my favourite, how did I not think of him for this deck? Blocker against aggro, lowers my curve, draws cards, and finally, can return excessive cyclelands to my hand to draw even more cards! I'm an idiot. Thanks, Oculus84.
