Noxious Revival Discussion
5 days ago
The main reason for Deep Analysis over Flash of Insight is Laboratory Maniac. Is some of my combo for Nooze is exiled or otherwise inaccessible due to gameplay, I can Dread Return the Laboratory Maniac and flashback Deep Analysis.
I actually had Noxious Revival and Diabolic Intent in the list to start with, along with cards like Windfall, some of the signets, etc. But a lot of them were dropped for more removal. Timetwister/Memory's Journey lines are the best for repeatedly recycling my library, to use Beast Within + Reality Shift to exile my opponents libraries. Winds of Rebuke isn't needed for this.
Entomb, Necromancy, Reanimate, Life // Death and the like were a package I couldn't run with my Food Chain package, Flash/Protean Hulk package, Laboratory Maniac package, Counterspell Package, Card Draw Package, Tutor Package, Removal Package, and Ramp Package. I just didn't have the space.
Ad Nauseam is a card that is too expensive opening hand, and doesn't instantly win me the game like Hermit Druid can, so I would rarely tutor it. It is a great card for storm, but not exactly for many other lists.
Survival of the Fittest/Apprentice Necromancer can be a great boon for many decks that need to reanimate a Protean Hulk, however I am a Food Chain deck at first, and a Hermit Druid list second. Flash/Protean Hulk is probably beneath Laboratory Maniac in terms of how much I want to focus on it. I would most definently recommend it to a Flash/Protean Hulk list wanting a single-card win-con (as long as you have a creature card in hand). I may eventually run it, but for right now I do in fact have a reason for not doing it.

I've been working on a cedh sidisi as well. Here are a few swaps I've found that work well. Phantasmagorian can be swapped for Cephalid Inkshrouder, it functions as a discard outlet with Nooze, and gives him shroud and lowers the CMC. Flash of Insight is strictly better than Deep Analysis. I would drop Manipulate Fate and friends and replace with Reanimate, Life//Death, and Necromancy. Boreal druid is almost useless, this deck has so many one drops that you usually need colored mana, I'd go with Survival of the Fittest or Apprentice Necromancer If you drop Dig Through Time and Treausre Cruise, you can easily run Ad Nauseam and add in other cantrips like Impulse to dig or Careful Study to ditch dead Nooze cards

Hua Tuo, Honored Physician can fill the same recursion role as oakenshield. Added benefit is his ability doesn't cost mana to activate and he puts the card on top of your library for you to cheat in with Vaevictis. Downside is he cannot be an alternate commander as he lacks RB
Noxious Revival does the same thing and can be cast for "free". It can also target your opponents so you can help them out with a vaevictis trigger if you want to be political, or you can put something flashy from their graveyard on top of their library and steal it with Etali, Primal Storm which is also fun to cheat in with Vaevictis.
Scapeshift is a great lands card. sac a ton of lands to Titania and Gitrog, then get an equal number of landfall triggers for the rest of your crew.

I would also look at adding more lower cost ramp cards - Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Llanowar Elves - these all help speed up the deck. Devoted Druid is not cheap, but is really good with Shalai as you can get a bunch of +1/+1 counters on druid and then trade them all for a lot of mana. Adding Vizier of Remedies to the mix gives you infinite green, which gives you infinite +1/+1 counters.
I would also look at more card advantage. Green/White struggles in this area, however you have options like Mentor of the Meek, Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Eladamri's Call, even Selvala, Explorer Returned.

If you click on the comment archive button and go back a little bit I go through the pros and cons of Signal the Clans as a budget tutor option if you don't have a Sylvan Tutor. You could give that a read and see if it is an option for you.
Spellseeker does a decent job of being an extra Worldly Tutor in most cases, so you could just use that Sylvan Tutor slot for the Scavenging Ooze that you were contemplating earlier. It would be worth running against about half of the decks you think will be coming to the tournament.
@JMCraig You were contemplating running Noxious Revival as a Spellseeker target a while back weren't you? Did you ever give that a test run? There's a lot of blue in those decks that Andros240 mentions above, so maybe that Autumn's Veil that you were also contemplating might be a viable option? If Sylvan isn't an option, then either of those two utility spells could be worth running.

Also, I'm just now thinking about an Isochron Scepter package in gruul, and have a couple of suggestions. Reverberate seems sweet, copying your powerful x-spells, your opponents removal spells, or even counterspells. I think Pyroblast is much better than Guttural Response in here, since it would be more relevant a lot of the time, and the cost isn't that much better than just . Finally, Noxious Revival seems decent as a recursion spell, and Destructive Revelry is great artifact/enchantment removal.

I always enjoy a Noxious Revival in Gifts decks. How are you finding only 21 lands? Seems low to me for a 2.5 avg CMC..
