I've totally won with a BoP buffed by Kessig Wolf Run. Including one Wolf Run in the list is right, IMHO. I really like Garruk, Primal Hunter and have added one to my paper list before seeing this. Illuminati confirmed lol!
Courser makes total sense, actually. Being able to even out some Aggro matchups is nice. I don't like not having a dork on T1 though, which is what helps drive a T2 Moon or Stone Rain.

There hasn't been much discussion on it at all, so thanks for bringing it up!
I tested Roast (and found I liked Beast Within better), but I haven't tested the rest of the deck out at all. It just looks SOOOOO slow to me. As you mentioned, dropping the Birds, and moving from 3 to 7 five-drops and 3 to 4 6-drops?!? Yoikes!
Birds for Courser is super-curious. Sure, Birds are a Bolt-magnet. But every Bolt that goes to a Bird is one that's not going to my face, so I'm generally just fine with that. And in a world with Fetch Lands, both die easily to Push.
And yeah I'm a HUGE fan of Chameleon Colossus and a fan of Kessig Wolf Run (it's rare of course, but I've no-kidding won games with Trampling Firebreathing Elves and Birds). I can't even imagine not running both.
But of course the cards he does use are all great, and I'm jealous of all his card filtering and Draw options, and I certainly can't argue with his results! So, I don't know ...
Bottom line: I figure I'll give it a try sometime (I think I only need to pick up the 2x Garruk, Primal Hunter), but I just haven't been in a big rush.

A lot of control decks, if they choose their removal wisely can have a great DS matchup. I find Roast to be extraordinary in my Skred list for this reason.
That being said, the new hour of devastation split card that glistner mentioned before will cause a bit of issues for decks that aren't packing much grave hate.

Bribery should be under envy, since you're staking something that's someone else's. Also Gather Specimens and Desertion are great envy cards. I feel like Roast would be a total meme in a deck like this, even if it's not that good, it's always fun to roast someone's creature and then make a joke about it lol. Also maybe run Norin the Wary, under pride, because he's useless and you're proud of it. Anyways I'll comment again should anything come to mind, this deck looks fantastic, great work with the theme!

You're right, Argy. I was looking for a pun like Roast that would only be noticeable to people who were longtime MtG players (and then got carried away by Cabal Coffees). Seems like you've struck a natural balance there.

A Magic pun, while funny, makes the coffee shop seem that little bit more "removed" from Non-Magic players.
I did have another idea that might attract newcomers and established players.
Coffee beans are roasted, and coffee drinkers will often comment on how good a roast is.
