Overall I worry that you play too many expensive cards whose value isn't guaranteed enough when they hit play, like Thraben Foulbloods and Shambling Shell. I know you want a good card for the 3 spot on your curve, but I feel both of these are pretty weak. I say that, but I don't have any ideas about what to put in their place.

That said, you might want to consider cards like Scythe Tiger who is strong, fast, shrouded, and lets you choose to put one of your artifact lands in play to speed up delirium. I'm also a fan of Harvest Wurm, who unfortunately probably won't work for your purposes since it specifies basic land. Cadaver Imp could be really good depending on how it interacts with your deck, and Unearth goes well with it.

If you want a sideboard replacement for your finishers that is less vulnerable to control, Blastoderm is always a good threat.

Most of my suggestions either stray away from your core deck theme or maybe won't help with it's current form, but I think they're good to keep in mind.

Hi! I really love the deck I think it’s a super cool take on stompy and it seems like it can hold its own pretty well in conpetetive matches. I don’t know how important shroud is to you, since green has so many removal spells that have to target your own creatures first, but Rogue Elephant might be something worth considering in place of Scythe Tiger since it interacts with Elephant Guide and Epic Confrontation. If not, I still love scythe tiger. Keep up the good work!

Scythe Tiger is not bad, the only problem is that you can't target it with Temur Battle Rage and/or Mutagenic Growth. It dodges Lightning Bolt and Galvanic Blast but not Chainer's Edict.

Not bad, just things to consider. Seems like this deck has several things that want to target your own stuff to make it bigger. Shroud is not the best thing for that

I would highly recommend Scythe Tiger over Rogue Elephant.

@boza Totaly Fair. I like the Makindi Sliderunner because trample is already evasion-lite. What would you cut for a playset? maybe the Scythe Tiger or Groundswells?

Some other notable 1 drop 3/2s, Scythe Tiger and Bone Picker.

Yeah I would definitely like Scythe Tiger in the sideboard against removal heavy decks and/or control. I just thought it could be clunky at times because it couldn't really be a true one-drop because even with the low curve, I like to not start sacrificing lands on my first turn. Also about the Akki Raider, the thing that I like about it over Ruinous Minotaur is that first off, it is my red drop in the two mana slot, whereas the Minotaur crowds my three drop slot a bit too much. Also, I need payoff early for sacrificing my own lands, which Akki Raider does, whereas Ruinous Minotaur is another enabler that allows the deck to sacrifice, which I already have plenty of.

Dang I really liked your Scythe Tigers... Maybe in the sideboard for control?
