Lay of the Land Discussion

Also i feel that Lay of the Land would be much more appropriate than Evolving Wilds since you are running very little lands.

One of the most powerful combos available in Scion decks is Worldgorger Dragon and a reanimation enchantment. These combo to flicker all your permanents infinitely, giving you infinite mana and a win with any damaging etb/ltb triggers. Since you already have a couple of enchantment-based reanimation spells, this combo is very easy to fit in. In addition, one of my favorite reanimation enchantments is Necromancy. Being able to reanimate creatures at instant speed is very powerful, and I feel that an extra mana is not too much to pay for the added flexibility.

You've got quite a bit of basic land fetch in your deck, so maybe running a few more basics would be a good idea. One other thing: Traverse the Ulvenwald, while quite a bit more expensive than Lay of the Land, is strictly better, and you should be able to enable delirium a decent amount of the time. Another powerful reanimation target that is especially good with Scion is Moltensteel Dragon, letting you pump Scion without spending any mana. Finally, Murder seems a bit subpar when you have access to so many colors. Putrefy, Mortify, Beast Within, and Terminate all seem quite a bit better.

Even though it's just a small, small advantage, you should probably play Traverse the Ulvenwald instead of Lay of the Land.

Hey there!I'm constructing a similar deck, I'm using:

Azusa, Lost but Seeking (its expensive i know, but w M25 it goes down).

Chain of Acid its an interesting card I think.

Elvish Pioneer my phylosophy for this deck is "More ramp = more fun".

Key to the City I use it to "cycle lands".

Rampant Growth Because why not.

Land Grant More ramp-stuff.

Lay of the Land and/or Attune with Aether 1 mana ramp.

I hope i can help! Have fun :)

I honestly am not good in color combination area but maybe add a Cultivate,Lay of the Land. and maybe a Divination.

I like this idea a lot. Some ideas to help you out. Lay of the Land for some cheap basic land retrieval. Vedalken Shackles for a new way to steal creatures, but only if you have a good Island base. With the number of artifacts you have and need a counterspell aside from...well Counterspell I recommend Assert Authority or Override. Finally with the number of instants and sorceries I recommend Primal Amulet  Flip, get it to flip and you can copy a lot of your powerful instants and sorceries.
