Hermit Druid Discussion

Although that Crypt is an expensive addition, I think that should be one of your first additions, if you are still updating this deck. The reason I think this is that if you cut the vault in order to add this, many of your turn one wins become more viable, because you have potential to mulligan down one and still go for the win in some situations

I'd run Buried Alive to get Necrotic Ooze, Channeler Initiate and Devoted Druid into your graveyard easily(which you should also run). Then cast Ooze from your grave and make infinite mana with the abilities of the other 2. From that it should be easy to win. For instant you could do hulkweaver loops, where you play Protean Hulk sacrifice it to say Viscera Seer and play it again, then sacrifice Multrotha and play her again to be able to get another creature out of the grave. This way with infinite mana and a sac outlet you can get infinite hulk death triggers which can get you want you want(Walking Ballista for the kill.) Also your Muldrotha is really expensive, so you probably want to run all 1cmc mana dorks.
Also maybe either cut Hermit Druid for a good tutor or get out all basics and add Dread Return so you can go for the Nooze win in one swoop.(put whole deck into grave, sacrifice Druid and 2 others to Dread Return, get back Necrotic Ooze. Then make a mana(usually done with Wall of Roots) to give haste via Blighted Bat and make infinite mana and kill all players). Not sure if I'd run this in muldrotha though, since it's a lot of overhead for just making hermit druid work. It'd put him into the spotlight instead of Muldrotha, which is probably not the right calls, but might be worth testing anyway.

This is a really cool deck! I really like it. Maybe replace the Hermit Druid's since their illegal in modern with Mindshrieker, they have evasion so their a nice target for your enchantments and they also help you mill.

So, with so much going on in this deck, my biggest failure would be to not have any of the combos left to execute, which puts me in a losing situation. Most FC decks are vulnerable to this, as with most Hermit Druid decks. People learn to respond to the combo, because once it gets going they know it is too late to act anymore. This is why Ive added so many other ways to win. Tainted Pact lets me search up my strongest and most consistent wincon, but at a cost of most likely exiling the rest of them. As I said before, I am putting it in the deck, but I am also going to be monitoring its performance very closely.
Anyways, with that rant out of the way, thanks man for the wonderful suggestions!

@crstisalie, yes, it turns out the -1/-1 counter actually is really good. There's a number of important things it kills: Aven Mindcensor is probably the most important, since that's basically the only thing that stops Zur. It's pretty cool to have the Cartouche in your hand and be able to use it as removal, instead of having it be a mostly-dead win condition. Other good stuff it kills include: Dark Confidant, Notion Thief, Hermit Druid, and even just killing an elf or Bloom Tender can be decent value. It's really pretty great to be able to grab the lifelink buff enchantment with Zur and also have it be a tempo positive play. It's a huge improvement. :)

I haven't tried any sagas yet, so I don't know how good they are. they seem like an okay idea, but I feel like there is probably more immediate effects. I also somehow forgot about Entomb and the like. I didnt actually know what Hermit Druid did though, I just knew there was a druid combo deck out there. that seems like an absurd ability.

Have you tried any of the sagas such as The Eldest Reborn? Seems like really good incremental advantage.

Muldrotha applies to all types of permanents, not just creatures. I'd say instead of running 33 creatures you put a more diversified mix of permanents into the deck; creatures, enchantments (look into sagas such as The Eldest Reborn, also second Pernicious Deed) and cheaper Planeswalkers with good minus-loyalty effects. Life from the Loam would seemingly be a busted engine card in a deck like this. Ditto Hermit Druid. This deck wants cheap plays that can get cards into the graveyard, such as Careful Study and Entomb.
