Khalni Heart Expedition Discussion
1 day ago
Have you thought about adding quest cards like Luminarch Ascension and Khalni Heart Expedition? You've got enough counter synergy that with a few proliferates, you could set them into action a turn early.

You somehow have two Sterling Grove in there.
I know it is an "auto include" but since you are running enchantresses you could drop your Sol Ring in place of a Khalni Heart Expedition, this will work really well with your commander so it is not quite as much a dead card late game. And on the subject of enchantresses, you could include Enchantress's Presence and Argothian Enchantress to make your card draw even more reliable.

Fun looking variation on the enchantress theme, I love it. I was thinking maybe some enchantment based Mana sources would be good because you plan on blowing up everything but enchantments. Cards like Elemental Resonance, Frontier Siege, Overlaid Terrain, Mana Reflection, Zendikar Resurgent, Druids' Repository, and Mana Bloom. And there are also a few more good Mana denial enchantments out there like Root Maze, Desolation, Kudzu, Destructive Flow. Into the Wilds, Rowen, Abundance, Elfhame Sanctuary, Khalni Heart Expedition, could help you recover from Mass Land destruction faster. As usual I'm likely suggesting way more cards than need to be changed or then I could even recommend what to swap in and out for. Happy Gathering!

It sounds completely correct :)
I also was wondering about adding Sakura-Tribe Elder and removing Khalni Heart Expedition after few tests...obviously, as you said, everything is intended for casual play (I alredy have my "tournament" legacy deck XD).
I will proceed with the changes you suggested and see how it goes.
Thanks again mate :)

This is a start but still needs quite a bit of refinement. Are you intending on actually buying these cards and putting the deck together? And am I correct in saying it is intended for casual play only??
Firstly, you have 25 non creature spells to 13 creature spells. This seems considerably unbalanced in a deck that wants to win through being aggressive and attacking. Obviously you want a lot of land drops but I think you can cut Banefire completely. There is no point in splashing red for only 2 copies and if you really want burn spells, there are better options out there. I would also cut Heroic Intervention. Although it is a nice card, it's not going to help push damage through your opponents defense. For this you are going to need to give your creatures trample. My suggestions for this would be Rancor and Primal Rage and 4 copies of each. Without them, you will just get chump blocked and your large creatures will be ineffective. Also, although Khalni Heart Expedition does what you want, I find it very slow in doing so and would also cut it out. How about this...
The rest can then be land fetches and trample cards. How does this sound?

In terms of ramp, most of the ramp you have are cards that push you only 1 mana ahead, which I think is too small of an effect unless it comes with another valuable effect. Because of this, I would drop Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Rampant Growth, Animist's Awakening, and Gruul Signet for Worn Powerstone, Astral Cornucopia, Gyre Sage, Khalni Heart Expedition, and Overgrowth. That kind of upgrade to your ramp will ensure that you get huge creatures out very easily. If you want to see other cards that could also fit this role, check out MagicalHacker - List of All Ramp Cards, but I would say that this deck definitely needs cards that advance your manabase by two or more, so ignore the cards that only ramp you by one.
Secondly, I only see three cards in here for draw, so there's no wonder that this deck doesn't hold it's own! We have all been there at some point, so let me emphasize this point: Draw is the most important thing for 99% of decks. Draw will let you have options, draw will let you build board states quickly, and draw will make it harder for you to get mana screwed or mana flooded. All of these are very important. You have Harmonize, Lifeblood Hydra, and Citanul Flute, but let's try to get 7 more cards for draw in here. If you need to take some out after testing, that's fine, but I don't see that being a problem. Too much draw isn't usually a problem with 10 cards that draw in the deck, so I think you should add any 7 of the following 9 options: Abzan Beastmaster, Elemental Bond, Triumph of Ferocity, Drumhunter, Outpost Siege, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Skullclamp, Wheel of Fortune, and Life's Legacy to your deck to be able to refill your hand quickly and often. Check out MagicalHacker - List of All Draw Cards (Steady) and MagicalHacker - List of All Draw Cards (Burst) if you want to see options I didn't mention or options that aren't quite so expensive. I do think that those 9 cards are probably the best draw cards for your deck though, so picking 7 will bring your draw up to a reasonable amount. (I'll get into what 7 cards to drop soon.)
Next, let's tackle boardwipes. You've got Savage Twister and Chandra's Ignition, which I think are fantastic, but you do need more. There are only a few board wipes that can kill flying creatures and nonflying creatures in red and green at a reasonable mana investment, and those are Nevinyrral's Disk, Chain Reaction, Heaven / Earth, Blasphemous Act, Rolling Earthquake, and Starstorm. I think you can pick any 3 of those to add to the deck and you will be set on board wipes. (This brings us up to 12 cards that need to be dropped.) If you want even more options, again, feel free to check out MagicalHacker - List of All Board Wipe Cards to see more cards that could work, but I think adding any three of the above options would be fine.
Now, let's move on to item removal. You have Decimate, Hull Breach, Vandalblast, Beast Within, and Steel Hellkite. These are all fantastic, but I'd like to see Chaos Warp as well to be able to deal with any permanent.
Lastly, let's take a look at what cards you have to be able to deal with creatures at instant speed. Most people assume that dealing with creatures at sorcery speed is just as strong as dealing with creatures at instant speed, but here is why that is not correct: your opponents' creatures are good cards for you when they are attacking other opponents, and they only become problems when they attack you. For that reason, it's important to remember to have lots of instant speed removal to be able to kill creatures during combat when they would deal lots of damage to you or to kill creatures that are about to allow an opponent to go infinite. That said, your only options for that are Chaos Warp and Beast Within, making Chaos Warp that much more important for this deck.
Now that we have gotten the enablers down, let's talk about the bulk of the deck. To really abuse Rosheen Meanderer, we want the rest of the deck to be about using that X restriction. That said, we do want to use cards that will use that restriction to do things of value. If we are going to make big creatures (which we do want to do), we want to make sure that those creatures can attack to deal damage to players by giving them evasion.
Lifeblood Hydra and Primordial Hydra are the only ones that have an evasion ability naturally, so then we are forced to include things to give evasion. Flying is a good start, so I think that Akroma's Memorial and Homura, Human Ascendant are a place to start. You were right to add some ways to give everything trample, but I would add Khenra Charioteer, Gruul War Plow, and Primal Rage. Those five in addition to your Nylea, God of the Hunt and Archetype of Aggression should be enough ways to make your big dudes go through.
I realize now though that I've lost track of how many cards to add, so instead I am going to make a decklist to show what I would suggest this deck should become. No worries, I will link it at the end.
I would actually add all the creatures that cost X but enter with X counters (excluding the ones that cost double X, since those are not as powerful). And after that, just some ways to double +1/+1 counters or use Rosheen's ability will round out the deck.
Personally, I believe that 37 lands including Sol Ring would be enough since you now have enough ramp, so I brought down the number of lands too.
Hope I was able to help you!

@Tetsuboi: Isn't there an enchantment that's similar but doesn't cost mana to activate? I was thinking about Khalni Heart Expedition, which is similar. It gives extra permanents as long as Warp World hits the 3 lands needed.
