I swapped out the Unravel the Aether
s and Plummet
s for a full set of Elvish Mystic
s and 2 Renowned Weaver
s, but I'm concerned about there being too many creatures and not enough enchantments or non-creature spells. Should this just be something to draw out responses to see what to sideboard in for the next round? Or just for streamlining the deck and taking out potentially unnecessary responses?
It looks like you'll have a hard time getting devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Abhorrent Overlord in your deck. I would replace them with 3 more Reaper of the Wilds . The card is like $0.60 right now and is super good. Other than that I would look to replace Plummet and Savage Surge with either Doom Blade or Ultimate Price . They serve the same role as removal but seem a little less conditional.
For M15 I would suggest Back to Nature in the sideboard and also Genesis Hydra . Genesis gets massive, plus his ability activates when you CAST him, not when he enters the battlefield. Meaning that even if he gets countered by a Dissolve or something, you still get to use his ability. Great against control. Plummet is good in the sideboard against decks that run Archangel, Stormbreath, or D-Demon as well. Chord of Calling is good as well.
Evolving Wilds ... drop out 4 of your basic lands (2 of each i guess), and add in 4 of these. The drawback is that you can't start turn 1 with only evolving winds in hand. The plus is that you get to thin out lands which helps with card draw in late game.
throw in a couple of these bad boys Hunter's Prowess . just 2 for now.
cheers mate. have fun killing things.
Hmm... Sideboard... Well if Hexproof is your fancy, Aegis of the Gods will save you from Devour Flesh , burn decks, and mill decks. I always like Selesnya Charm since it exiles just about any major threat in the format (and also protects from Devour Flesh with the token). I would mainly focus on stopping Flying creatures since you have a glaring weakness to them. I personally am a huge fan of Deadly Recluse since it kills everything that's not indestructible (there's also Plummet ). Board wipes are another thing that could wreck you. I see you have Ajani's Presence in the main, very good choice, but if you need added support, Rootborn Defenses and/or Ready / Willing are excellent. Sorry for all these RTR block suggestions, I'll try to keep rotation in mind. Glare of Heresy rids you of Brimaz, Elspeth, D-Sphere, Banishing Light, and much much more. I know it's from M14 but Imposing Sovereign is such an amazing card against blitz decks, too good to not include. That's all I have at the moment, I hope this was helpful.
I think this deck is a sweet variation form other WG aggros. A few things i think i would try are cutting Arbor Colossus from the board. I understand you want to kill Stormbreath Dragon but with only 23 lands I don't feel like you will get to 6 mana before strombreath has already taken over the game, perhaps something like Plummet would to that better although its narrow. Also with mono blue getting really popular i think Skylasher could be really good. once u put an Unflinching Courage on it they have very few ways to race you.
