You need to put all your maybeboard cards into your deck, whoever suggested those cards to you is a genius.

Reclamation is also a good card depending on your meta, though people may hate you for it, and depending on how long your games go, Omniscience could be a good addition.

Also Replenish , Serra's Sanctum , Rhystic Study , Academy Rector , Song of the Dryads , Exploration , Land Tax , and Sylvan Library would be great if you have the budget.

Land Tax , True-Name Nemesis , the BB lands (ie Sea of Clouds )?

Also the deck archetype you’re looking at here is colloquially referred to as goodstuff.

Yes I've been playing this deck every chance I get! Basically every up-date I've done on this deck has been because after play testing it and realizing what I need to change or just new cards I have acquired. So right now I currently own all these cards expect some of the special lands. I just order them on tcgplayer. Mistveil Plains and Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a must for me, however I'm wondering if having to many special lands is going to be a bad thing.

heyzeus_ I see your point on Lumbering Battlement where it would just be better for me to drop an angel rather using it only for board wipe protections, so instead I replaced it with Steelshaper's Gift . I also swapped Angelheart Vial for Coercive Portal because it grants me two things which is the chance to draw or a board wipe which is what i'm after. None of my friends take extra turns so it makes sense to actually not have Ugin's Nexus in this deck because there are defiantly stronger cards that i have.

Honestly I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what else to add besides expensive cards such as Land Tax , Admonition Angel , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Archangel of Thune , Stoneforge Mystic , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Angel of Jubilation , The Immortal Sun , Baneslayer Angel , Crucible of Worlds , and maybe Angel of Grace . But in my eyes these are the big buys that 10 dollars or up which probably wont get in tell summer.

DerektheRed I don’t think I’m going to go with tokens, but that is a pretty good batch of cards for if I wanted to switch it to be more token themed. As for Land Tax and Scroll Rack I’ve been trying to get a land tax from one of my buddies, but scroll rack seems a bit expensive.

heyzeus_ I now see your point on running Smothering Tithe and actually my friend just gave me Armageddon !

In addition to Smothering Tithe , another new card to consider is Divine Visitation . Possibly a token sub-theme? You've already got Moonsilver Spear , Luminarch Ascension , etc. Assemble the Legion or Rise of the Hobgoblins could be pretty sweet.

Your biggest issue will be card draw, so definitely run the Land Tax + Scroll Rack combo if you have it.

Master_J, thanks for the response man! Smothering Tithe is a absolute powerhouse, i now even run it in decks where i have acces to green as well, cause it goes out of hand quite fast.

Thanks for the tip on Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, I'm a bit in doubt between that card and Erebos, God of the Dead . Since the denying of lifegain I value. Often he is a indestructible creature that can swing in for 5. All that for just 2 mana more. That being said, the copy effect is quite the reason not to run him. I might look into it, till now I havent really encountered someone copying Erebos.

Pontiff of Blight helps quite a lot. Lately ive been shifting my deck a bit more towards Extort again. I always underestimated the mechanic a bit, but it just gives you sooooo muuuuuch triggers. And since not all the extort creatures are worth playing I decided to run Pontiff again. Yes he is mana heavy, but mana I never really found to be a problem with playing cards like Land Tax , Smothering Tithe and being able to tutor to those cards. But if you run enough creatures pontiff is really really nice, especially if you play cheap spells, wich can trigger karlov 2-3 times. Think you should just playtest him a bit.

I now see that my list is quite outdated, ill update it straight away so you can check the last changes i've made. Ill also put it in the log.
