Misthollow Griffin Discussion
3 days ago
I have thought about Eternal Scourge before the problem with it is it is hard to play a lot cards that need to be exiled from the graveyard. I found that Misthollow Griffin works better since it cost 4 and both Stitched Drake and Skaab Ruinator cost 3, letting you curve out with them.
If your interested in Eternal Scourge I was thinking of a deck that uses Selective Memory to exile Misthollow Griffin and Eternal Scourge, almost letting you draw 8 cards, but I found the deck was too inconsistent. If you are interested in Eternal Scourge it would work in a deck like that.

One last question, outside of the mana base, what do you believe are the 3-4 first pieces to upgrade within the deck? I'm running a version between the $420 & $1000 now, I'm thinking Pact of Negation, Mana Drain, Flusterstorm.

I wouldn't run Merfolk Thaumaturgist + Serendib Sorcerer . The chance of getting them both in your hand when you need it is too low. Instead, if you want more removal I would consider cards in these colors such as Pongify, Reality Shift, Beast Within, etc. Generally you want your removal to be cheap and preferably function at instant-speed.
I think Psychosis Crawler is probably too slow at 5CMC, but Laboratory Maniac is a good main or alternate win condition. You can draw your deck by generating infinte colored mana through the Food Chain plus Misthollow Griffin or Eternal Scourge.
P.S. I saw you already ran Nature's Claim, since there is now 2 in your mainboard.

I really like the idea of this deck, but I feel like there are a few things that this deck has that slow it down. To start, I don't know if this is just a budget deck that you wanted to put together or if it is a deck that you want to legitimately see lots of play. The advice I'm giving is to help push the power level of this closer to high performing and top tier decks in the format, ignoring the cost of any of the upgrades. I feel there are too many 3 drops all together, I really dont feel Graveblade Marauder is any good. It feels really slow and while deathtouch is nice upside for it, it just pales in comparison to the other 3 drops of the deck. I get trick you want to do with Misthollow Griffin, it looks fun and it looks like there is loads of synergy with it and your deck, but, I think including the card is taking away from other possible includes or completed playsets of cards that aren't in the deck. Your mana base tells me that this is a budget deck, but if you want it to perform better, Opulent Palace, Yavimaya Coast, and some number of basic lands should be cut for fetch lands and shock lands. The other part why I think this is so important is that it would help you trim down your deck faster and it allows you to get to your good cards faster and more reliably. Another thing, it also allows Hedron Crab to be double triggered in one turn. I think the removal package is incredibly slow, considering that all of your removal spells, your 2 Autumnal Gloom, and most of your creatures are all 3 drops. This can make your deck incredibly clunky if you get low lands hands. Another suggestion is to find cheaper alternatives to some of your 3 drops so that the deck can overcome some clunkyness. I think a card that slots perfectly in the deck is Dryad Arbor that can be fetched for if you need a land, it can also be exiled to cast Skaab Ruinator, it generates zombies with Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, etc. Grisly Salvage can be used as way to semi-tutor cards while filling the graveyard. Grim Flayer can be used as a faster and stronger version of either Nyx Weaver or Splinterfright. A couple Search for Azcanta may replace Autumnal Gloom. Even a few small and cheap changes could just be to slot in 1-2 Murderous Cut for Putrefy, Thought Scour as additional self-mill, and Grisly Salvage for better consistency could go a long way. I hope some of these could help you. I also hope all this didn't come off as me try to take over your deck idea. Not every single part of the deck needs to be changed and I think you have a good starting place for a deck that could be something even more explosive.

Would rather just remove the creature than Armament of Nyx
There are better lands than guildgates that are still cheap (like life lands)
Leonin Sun Standard is ok, but I'm not a huge fan.
Removal: Bant Charm Treva's CharmArmy of Allah is meh. Misthollow Griffin is too costly. Hovermyr won't block too much with 2 toughness, so vigilance isn't too great, making 2 mana cost, too much. Aven Sunstriker cost too much for its power.
