Hunted Wumpus Discussion

Thanks to everyone for your comments on my deck. I am so behind in responding though so let's see if I can catch up...
As for the suggestions, the two walls you suggested dankmim, have both been in the deck at some point, and Fog Bank still is, but I've come to realize that once people know that you're not any kind of threat, they pretty much leave you alone. Not that I should leave myself totally defenseless, that wouldn't be good, but I think that overdoing the pillow-fort aspect of the deck leaves me with fewer cards that actually do what the deck is intended to do.
DexRain, I bought a copy of Jace Beleren for the deck, but after giving it some thought, came to the conclusion that it is just too scary a card to be sitting on the battlefield ticking up with his ultimate staring people in the face, even if I never intend to use it. I'm giving out so much card draw that I always have to be conscience of how low everyone's libraries are getting, so if I'm worried about it, you know they are.
Those are all good suggestions, TheWallinator74 and I've considered all of them over time. With Ghirapur Orrery, the second ability, which kicks in when someone has no cards in hand, will just never happen since I'm giving out so much card draw, so the question has to be asked, is the first ability alone worth the 4 mana it cost to cast it?
Hunted Wumpus has the one time ETB effect which is okay but there again, is the one time effect worth the 4 mana? The main problem I have with the card though is that it is a 6/6, and big green stompy creatures can be seen as a threat.
Tempting Wurm has two problems. The first is that he is a 5/5 which can be threatening, but also if one person has a Reliquary Tower effect in play and the others don't, it would allow them to dump many more threats onto the battlefield than their opponents.
I thought about Weird Harvest too, but giving out card draw is one thing, allowing people to tutor up their combos is another, so I haven't included that one yet.
I didn't put Tempt with Glory in the deck earlier because I didn't think it did enough for the mana cost, but lately with all the hype surrounding the Atraxa, Praetors' Voice Commander deck, I'm even more reluctant to include it.
I do like Alliance of Arms and I have one. I'm not sure why it's not in here. Stay tuned, I may soon be including it.
Thanks again to everyone who has liked and commented on this deck. Even if I don't reply as quickly as I would like due to some comments requiring a rather lengthy response (like this one), I do read them in a timely manner and appreciate them all.

It looks like I've fallen behind in replying to you guys, sorry.
Thanks for the suggestions, freezerboy. As for the Hunted series of cards, I don't have any in the deck for a couple of reasons. Hunted Wumpus, the one that's suggested the most, is too powerful. Putting a 6/6 creature into play tends to grab everyone's attention. All the other Hunted cards force me to target an opponent to help. Whenever possible I try to hand out goodies to everyone equally and not pick one player to help out over others, even if that one player is in the worst position at the table. So yeah, Hunted Phantasm would be one to include if it let me spread out the tokens rather than give them all to one player.
Thanks for the comment, Decklist1000. I did consider Jace Beleren for this deck, but again, it's a scary inclusion to other players. I'm giving out so much card draw that milling someone out is always something I have to watch out for, and having Jace sitting there with his ultimate staring people in the face tends to draw negative attention even if I never intend to use it, so with all the other card draw I've got in the deck, I don't see the need to worry players with his ultimate.
Anyway, thanks everyone for all of the comments and suggestions. Getting to 300 likes and 30,000 views is just crazy, something I never expected when building this deck just to have fun.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions guys.
I like the Show and Tell and Concordant Crossroads ideas DrkNinja, although giving all creatures haste is a little worrying I must say. I'll have to test it out. Luckily (due to its price) I feel the same way about Eureka as I do Hypergenesis or the Tempting Wurm that NyanNijet suggested . They all push the game forward too fast, even for this deck and, considering all the card draw I'm giving out, if one player has an Reliquary Tower effect and the others don't, things could get ugly.
I've thought about including Hunted Wumpus in the deck, NyanNijet, but when you get up into the 6/6 creature range, people start taking notice. I even considered not putting the 5/5 Sheltering Ancient in the deck for this reason, but the cumulative upkeep is just so sweet on that card I had to include it.

I've made a deck based on that idea some time ago. Feel free to check:
SCORE: 17 | 10 COMMENTS | 18254 VIEWS | IN 16 FOLDERS
The idea is to use cards like: Trickbind, Sundial of the Infinite, Torpor Orb, Disallow, Voidslime and Hushwing Gryff to counter the EtB triggers and cast your massive creatures. There is also the option to use Fling and Rite of Consumption for cards that have upkeep triggers.
Currently this is the list of cheap big creatures with big drawbacks for modern:
Vexing Devil, Boldwyr Heavyweights, Cosmic Larva, Desecration Demon, Desecration Elemental, Dust Elemental, Eater of Days, Leveler, Hunted Phantasm, Hunted Horror, Hunted Troll, Hunted Wumpus, Hunted Dragon, Hunted Lammasu, Inverter of Truth, Nova Chaser, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Primeval Force, Sky Swallower.
