Noxious Revival Discussion

RNR_Gaming Thank you for pointing that out! I was stuck between Day's Undoing and Molten Psyche, and I thought I could get the triggers for the snakes the same way. My concern was to hit all graveyards to combat graveyard recursion decks. It seems counter productive in Xyris, though.
I like your list, too! Obviously, much more expensive lol, but I like your inclusion of Noxious Revival and Veil of Summer. Anvil of Bogardan is a spicy 2 drop that I didn't know about, and I will likely include that card in my updated list as well.

I am debating about adding Noxious Revival . Still need to cut 13 now. I cut about 20 cards thus far.

Very cool idea. Here's some stuff I'd say:
2) Something else that may be worth looking at would be Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy because it can net mana from your self-sac creatures and keep you from fizzling. If you do like that idea, Mox Amber would be a good card to include along side it as at worst a decent combo piece and at best a much better Simian Spirit Guide.
3) Noxious Revival seems like a generally good 0 cost card for the deck, but you should clear up the description to make the interaction between Noxious Revival and Song of Creation a bit more clear. you won't be able to draw the card you target unless you can cast another spell afterward because the draw from Song of Creation triggers on cast, meaning it would resolve before noxious revival does. That being said, I think it's still a great pick for the deck.
Anyways, cool deck. Hope anything I said is of some help.

Thanks for the advice, multimedia! I did some thinking on the deck and made a few changes which - I hope - make the deck a bit better. I did it with a heavy heart, but I cut both No Mercy and Phyrexian Obliterator. Even though I love them, they weren't really helping, especially the obliterator.
I also got rid of a few other cards you mentioned. I added Fauna Shaman and Elves of Deep Shadow, as well as Protean Hulk, and Erebos, Bleak-Hearted, although I'm not super confident about the latter. He's kind of okay, both as a sac outlet and draw engine, but I did some testing and he was never really spectacular. I'm actually having some trouble with the 4CMC spot. Pattern of Rebirth seems pretty cool, but it's mostly a one-and-done effect that needs a bit more setup than Eldritch Evolution. Also I don't want to cut too many creatures.
I also replaced Greenwarden of Murasa with Noxious Revival. It's a much easier way to recur stuff that Meren isn't able to get back. At some point I'll probably replace Erebos with a Sylvan Library and Rune-Scarred Demon or Shriekmaw with a Walking Ballista. Oh, and I'm planning to switch from Torment of Hailfire to Toxic Deluge or at least Damnation. I also added Massacre Wurm -- I love how he interacts with Sudden Spoiling.
When it comes to mana base, I just have much more black pips in the deck, that's why I'm using more swamps, but maybe I'll go with 7 forests and 11 swamps. I'll surely add Verdant Catacombs too, but I already went over budget like four times with this deck, so I'm trying to take it slow :D
In your opinion, does the deck look better now than it did before the changes? Thanks again for your advice! It's been really helpful!

EqEx I'm glad you like it. I wanted to include more of your ideas mainboard, but didn't want to sacrifice too much consistency. I felt really cramped just trying to work in the quantities of what I had already. In regards to the control problem (presuming you mean removal/board wipes), it was part of the reason I had Lightning Greaves main and Noxious Revival in the side. Speaking of the sideboard, I will probably add Viridian Shaman or something like that, at some point.

SplendiferousPotato The reason I do not play Meloku the Clouded Mirror anymore is because Trade Routes is less mana intensive and is easier to land with counter magic back up. 5 mana + 1 is harder to pull vs 2 mana + 1. Although Meloku the Clouded Mirror can give you infinite spirit, that line is not really needed or rarely will be relevant.
The reason I didn't include Waterlogged Grove is because I'm stupid and forgot about it. That will be added in the future. Thanks for pointing that one out.
zavec The reason I don't play Timetwister is because you actually want a graveyard. I would rater play Windfall over it if you need extra card in your hand, but I would recommend that you play Narset, Parter of Veils with it if you plan to do so.
MrTeeg The reason I don't play Noxious Revival is because I have Regrowth and Eternal Witness in the deck already. However that is more of a preference more then anything. If you like Noxious Revival just replace one of the 2 cards and it should be fine but 3 regrowth effect is just to much in my opinion.
Now about Mind Over Matter, the big reason I don't want to play this card is hugely due to the 4x in the casting cost. At this point I'd rather risk getting spot removal while casting Pemmin's Aura on my creature.
Sidenote: I will be updating my listtonight as my list has drastically changed over a month but still retained the core.

Have you thought of Ephemerate? It's a pretty sweet blink spell. I would also add Noxious Revival as an additional way to get your combo pieces back eot and draw it on your turn. Grand Abolisher also makes sure nobody can interact on your turn. Silence and Veil of Summer are also cards that protect your combo. Hope that helps!
