I have a deck similar to this one and one of the wincons is Overrun. The card often closes games due to the trample. As for fliers, I ran Bow of Nylea, but there are other cards like Gravity Well and Raking Canopy that completely shut down flying decks. Hope that helps.

Raking Canopy based on your instants it seems like being attack by flyers is your main concern. This eliminates a large portion of the flyer base and leaves you holding upo the trior the most powerful.

Other Anti Flier cards: Dense Canopy, Gravity Well, Raking Canopy and Bower Passage.

Dense Canopy and Bower Passage make it so your flying opponents can't block your creatures either if you want an all out swing fest

Gravity Well and Raking Canopy make your opponents think hard about combat since they will lose flying and or their creatures will take a hit when they swing.

Personally I run Gravity Well in my mono green deck. It has no flying whatsoever so having it is a nice failsafe.

Yeah, I get you are going for Voltron, it just looks like you could be left a bit open after you swing, like you say fine in 1v1 but not so good in multiplayer. Maybe some pillowfort cards would help?Elephant Grass, Hornet Nest, Raking Canopy or Song of Serenity could help, the latter really synergises with your Voltron build.

If you need some more draw, Skullclamp could do well here with your spawn and scion

let's see if we can find you some creature removal with legs! gimmie a sec and i'll see what I can do.. but fighting probably won't be best since Atraxa has death touch..

things that come to mind off the bat are Raking Canopy and Fall of the Hammer. Gimmie a bit and i'll see what we can do! If we can keep it creature heavy, that would work best for you.

Playtest vs. Avacyn -- White Power and Saint Traft's Silent-Commander, Odric

lol so it was a slow game until this deck managed to -7 Nissa, Worldwaker with Retreat to Kazandu on the field. Gained 42 life and put Omnath down. This should go well.

White Power exiled Omnath. Silent Commander hit this deck for 36 in the air, with lifelink. This deck hits Silent commander for 48, no blockers. White Power is useless. Silent Commander hits this deck for 40 in the air and this deck dies, hits White Power for 32, all of it's lifelink so Silent Commander has 128 life. Silent Commander wins handily on turn 13.So Omnath performed really well, much better than my Avacyn deck which got crippled by one board wipe early on. If it weren't for Entreat the Angels paid at Miracle cost Omnath would've definitely won.

So, unsurprisingly, this deck has a problem with flyers. For sure, I think you need Tornado Elemental and Cloudthresher. Hornet Queen, Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Squallmonger, Hurricane, Squall Line, Raking Canopy, and Silklash Spider could help. Akroma's Memorial and Ifh-Biff Efreet would be pretty killer, I think, if you're willing to pay for them.

Anyway, well done!
