Dont use Lava Axe its really not a good card. use Lava Spike and Rift Bolt theyre a lot better

I love this deck. I traded for an Omnath, Locus of Rage and a Mina and Denn, Wildborn at the prerelease, and obviously Omnath had to helm a deck. My deck is mostly based off of yours, but more budget (no fetches). I'm not exactly sure where this combo came from, but if you use Zuran Orb and Creeping Renaissance with Where Ancients Tread you can probably Lava Axe people to death. +1

personally, i think Forerunner of Slaughter is the best card in this deck. I think it should be a four of. Also, Reality Smasher is ridiculously good. I don't believe Vile Aggregate is amazing, but it is up to you and how your playtesting works out for that one. I also don't really care for Dominator Drone, as it a 3/2 for 3 that pings for 2. I feel that it should be replaced by something else. I also like Dust Stalker, a 5/3 with haste is decent, but sometimes it is just a four mana Lava Axe. I also feel that Eldrazi Obligator should be sideboard against abzan to take their siege rhino.

Dash Hopes is awful.

it's almost always irrelevant. it's a Counterspell or Lava Axe ONLY when you need it least (lava axe-style effects are generally terrible in multiplayer).

Cabal Coffers is great with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

Yawgmoth's Bargain is generally less risky and marginally more powerful than Necropotence and can be cast easily with Crypt Ghast.

speaking of Crypt Ghast, it'd be optimal just to run broken big cards with it that loosely fit into your lifegain theme. Griselbrand fits the bill, being a fun mix of obscenely powerful and obscenely expensive mana-wise.

looks like it would run a lot better!

though in lieu of Thopter Spy Network try Genesis Chamber?

In this build I would find room for Perilous Myr because it usually is a great early drop.

I would highly recommend dropping Lava Axe because it his high cost and rather narrow.

Brimstone Volley would be a better fit imo.

Just some ideas off the top of my head

It's definitely a good starting point. I would find a replacement for Lava Axe asap because it will be a long while before you have the mana available to cast it if you're only running 19 lands, by then you will have lost because the long game is not your friend with no card draw. Might I suggest Thunderbolt if you're trying to stay budget. Do you play MTGO or countertop?
