Creatures you control get +0/+1 for each Gate you control and have vigilance.
Heres an idea: Run a couple copies of Hold the Gates , it gives your weenies some survivability and gives them vigilance as well.
Thanks for the comments, I have Mana Confluence mainly for the blue sideboard cards, not for color correction. I did pull Fog and I am testing without it, one of my biggest problems with the deck is the early damage I take when I am building up my Hexproof creature.
From some of the cards you recommended it seems like you think that I will have lots of creatures out and that is not usually the case. I just get one Hexproof guy down and build on him.
I never loved Hold the Gates but Vigilance is very important to this deck because when I attack with my one pumped up fatty, the back door is wide open for a counter attack to take away all the life I gained or more. When I have Vigilance my opponent has to decide if the attack is worth it because I will likely kill one of their creatures and potentially gain more life than they can inflict with their other attackers.
I did adjust the numbers of my lifegain cards to 4 to see if that will overcome the need for Fog , thanks again for the input, let me know what you think now.
I just found Hold the Gates , which always gives Vigilance but will also give +0/+1 if you control a Gate. It looks like a good fit, I just need to work on getting back to 60. Also, I need to consider bringing Negate back in to protect it from instants.
I use Maze's End as only a backup wincon in case things go south. My usual game plan is to dominate the field until I can land one of my win cons, namely Crackling Perimeter , Assemble the Legion , Phenax, God of Deception (if I've got Hold the Gates down he's a game-ender), and Master of Cruelties . Using Maze's End is more suited to turbofog than field control, and I tend to put my mana elsewhere when it counts. If things look bad and it's a possibility, I absolutely use it to its fullest potential, cranking up the gate count for burn and toughness and getting me closer to a win. It's just not my main focus.
