Also, Conclave Tribunal is strictly better than Hieromancer's Cage

I love the idea! As far as your sideboard goes: 1. Hieromancer's Cage can be strictly upgraded with Ixalan's Binding 2. Risk Factor is a weird inclusion. I'd swap it out for some graveyard hate, like Sentinel Totem 3. It's worth throwing in a bit of enchantment/artifact hate. Expose to Daylight or Invoke the Divine work, depending on which is important to you, or even Demystify if you want cheaper and laser-focused on enchantments.

Ixalan's Binding is a significant upgrade over Hieromancer's Cage . Also, Cry of the Carnarium exiles things (thematic) and helps against aggro (essential).

Awesome deck. I would switch out the Hieromancer's Cage for Oblivion Ring , Banishing Light , Cast Out , or Conclave Tribunal . They're all the same effect for 3 CMC or more vesatile at 4 CMC.

Upvote from me!

Hey WarriorMagic,

Thanks for your comment.

After some playtesting, I do agree with you that Tribunal has to be cut. Most of the time, it's pretty much a Hieromancer's Cage as I don't use Convoke. I'll go with your suggestion and add my fourth Contempt and another Mortify . I'll also playtest Ixalan's Binding and Assassin's Trophy in the Mortify slot, just to mix things up and try something new.

I really like Drover of the Mighty instead of anything else ( Llanowar Elves , Incubation Druid ) because I have 4 Dinos in the sideboard and the Drover can turn into a decent blocker against aggro. Also, in this deck, I really need color-fixing, and Drover helps that need.

While Flower / Flourish is a great card, it doesn't actually mana ramp. It brings the land to your hand and you can only fetch a basic Forest or Plains, which is why I won't put it in the deck.

I like the idea of Assassin's Trophy . What do you think (apart from Tribunal) I should take out for it?

I'm not a big fan of Settle in the mainboard. There's just so little space, and it's a sideboard card for now.

I really like Kaya, Orzhov Usurper as it helps exile cards for graveyards at an aggressive cost. She also allows me to gain life if I exile a creature card, which might be very useful against Drakes. My meta has a lot of Drakes and Golgari, so these slots are crucial. I could take it out for Deadeye Tracker , but that kind of seems like a downgrade. The only reason why I wouldn't take it out for Deathgorge Scavenger is because against x Midrange, I also side in the Tocatli Honor Guard , and it nullifies half of the Dinosaur's ability. Although, if I added in Scavenger, I would put my Dino number up to 5, which would mean a more likely chance at pumping up Drover. Just thinking out loud.

I already have Vivien Reid in the sideboard. With Duress , you mainly want to be playing it on turn 1, and I only have 6 T1 untapped lands that produce , so it kind of gets my opinions on it for this deck a little sour. The main reason I run Find / Finality is for the Find part for outvaluing the Control and the x matchups. I only occasionally use the Finality part. This is the main reason why I don't run Ritual of Soot instead. I have considered The Eldest Reborn , but I don't know where to put it.

Thanks again for your extremely helpful comment,

Hello, very good list but I think you want your curve a little bit lower than Light of the Legion so I would replace it with Healer's Hawk or Hieromancer's Cage...

Depending on your meta try to fit in the aggro/hate tools like Kinjalli's Sunwing, Deathgorge Scavenger, Adanto Vanguard Shapers' Sanctuary

Good games to you, keep us updated!

Vraska's Contempt is perfect fit here. Lifegain plus clean removal versus stuff like Arclight Phoenix and Rekindling Phoenix.

White also has good removal. Ixalan's Binding, Hieromancer's Cage, and Conclave Tribunal are all 4-mana exiles. Conclave Tribunal would be really nice here with all of the little cat tokens you will make.
