Living Hive Discussion

This deck got coverage on mtg goldfish _
While Saffronolive's list was horribly untuned, it did lead me to reconsider a card I had not thought about since the days of twin: Through the Breach
I am currently considering abandoning the grind 'em out plan vs shadow and instead trying to combo harder. The proposed changes are all in the sideboard
Is this a reasonable plan of attack vs grixis shadow, or have I gone too far down the rabbit hole?

I would advice against cards that cost three of a specific colour, unless you really need them (the chances of getting stuck with them is big) . So I would take Aetherwind Basker out, Like wise I don't think Eliminate the Competition is going to work since you'll be sacrificing creatures to the brothers. You do need more, seriously more, token generation: Ant Queen is cheap (money wise) and can take a little beating, Krenko, Mob Boss if you have him, Dragonlair Spider or Living Hive which is big and spawns.
For inspiration please feel free to view Everything has a Sacrifice, I mean Price (warning: Blatantly self referential :) )

Hey there! This looks like a great start to an Elemental deck; I have just a few suggestions:
- While expensive on the wallet, a shock/fetch manabase would make your mana much smoother. If you don't want to go that route, I recommend lands like City of Brass and Mana Confluence over Vivid lands, as coming into play tapped is a real drawback. Cascading Cataracts will definitely need testing, but my instinct is that it isn't great.
- If you want to go the "ramp into giant elementals" route, which I recommend, I'd get rid of Torrent Elemental, Reveillark, Descendants' Path, and Doomgape, and instead add more Liege of the Tangle, Nova Chaser, and Omnath, Locus of Rage. Living Inferno, Living Hive, and Walker of the Grove are also all good options.
- Since Elementals are already pretty solidly a Red tribe, Lightning Bolt would probably be better than Path to Exile, to avoid overstretching an already thin 5-color manabase.
Hope this helped! I really like this deck, and might "borrow" it for my own uses. I've been trying to brew an Elementals deck for a while, and this looks like the most promising start I've seen!

Thank you for the suggestions, I'll see if I can get my hands on a few Eldrazi Monument. As for Living Hive I think he's too costly to put in this deck. This deck used to be Blue/Red and focused on thopters via cards like Whirler Rogue, my winning combo was the thopters and Sharding Sphinx. Living Hive reminds me of that.

Eilel thanks for the suggestions. Caustic Caterpillar and Rust Scarab will definitely find their way into the sideboard. Sadly, Bayou Dragonfly is not modern legal, and I really want to keep it mono. I have considered Living Hive, but I just don't think it does enough for 8 mana. That and it itself is not a bug. I will have to see how Deadbridge Goliath works with the deck.

Love your idea of the challenge you and your friend make. I'll be introducing this to my playgroup as well!
Beetleform Mage is a very strong card, but you'd need splash for blue.
Deadbridge Goliath is a solid body for it's mana cost and can do graveyard shenanigans in the late game.
