Enchantment — Aura
All creatures able to block enchanted creature do so.

kidimp That's all well and good, but in those games where he doesn't draw a flyer, you don't get to use it. Card-for-card, choosing to put another threat onto the board in this instance, is a better use of a deck slot. If he kills your dude, so what? You killed his too!
One easy (budget-friendly) way to make this "trade" uneven is to have creatures with trample (either with dudes that have trample ( Aggressive Mammoth ?) or a combat trick like Tread Upon or Somberwald Alpha 's activated ability) - even if you die, excess combat damage is dealt to the opponent, so you still got something extra out of it. (Note: there are one-sided tricks like Tanglesap that make this super fun.)
Another way to deal with this is to put out mid-sized creatures (green has plenty) that you can direct to damage the deathtoucher either through fight abilities or through a card like Lure .
What I'm trying to say is that Plummet, while a viable limited sideboard card, probably isn't super strong in your matchup. Were I in your shoes, I would trade out a few mana dorks and plummet for a card draw engine and a mid-level threat or two. a great budget option for an early threat is Sauroform Hybrid , which would couple together best with Colossal Majesty.
Take a look at my other decks if you like the kind of budget advice I give :)

1: You don't have to pay that cost to cast the card, but you do have to pay the cost to activate the ability.
2: Exiling the card from your graveyard is a cost, similar to tapping the creature or paying . If you tap the creature it won't be able to attack, if you spend the mana you won't be able to use it for something else. Similarly exiling the card from your graveyard will generally enact a toll for you. The advantage of doing so is to get the effect (the part that comes after the colon): Creating a 2/2 black zombie and putting +1/+1 counters on all your zombies, including the one you just made. At it's worst it's paying 3 mana, tapping a creature, and getting rid of a card in your graveyard to make a 3/3.
As for what could possibly be an advantage to paying the cost: Tapping the creature can be helpful for cards like Throne of the God-Pharaoh and not being forced to block a creature with Lure . Similarly exiling a card from your graveyard can make it no longer a valid target for Surgical Extraction or an opponent's Beacon of Unrest .

I was more just giving other options if you chose to run more Lure effects. Druid's Call is really the only one the currently works with the various combat tricks in your deck because you can put it on one of your creatures that manipulate blocking.

Yeah I had been debating about that one, and the keeping the mana curve low was the biggest reason I included Krosan Vorine . You make a good point, though. I think that one extra mana might just be worth Lowland Tracker ’s first strike.
I’m a little confused by your next suggestion because none of those cards have a Lure effect. They don’t force blockers; they just do things when they’re blocked. Including lure effects would be a great idea if I can find room for them, though.
Yeah, Shamanic Revelation is really good. It’s similar to Camaraderie which nets me life regardless of my creatures’ power. I think if I had enough creatures with power over 4 to make the second part worth it, it would just be win-more. Still good draw power regardless. It might find its way in if I need another high draw spell.
Thanks for taking a look at the deck and giving some feedback!

After looking at you combat trick section, I would vote for replacing Krosan Vorine with Lowland Tracker . It does cost 1 more mana, but it has first strike. You pair that with Bow of Nylea , Basilisk Collar , or Gorgon Flail (other strong inclusions in a deck with Mirri) and now the Tracker is just straight removal.
Shamanic Revelation can be pretty potent card draw in a token deck as well. Yes you need a board state to get anything, but it has pretty high upside.

I forgot about Lure effects! That might be worth looking into.
