Seal of Strength Discussion

Couple of suggestions from a first glance:
Maybe try Become Immense over Titanic Growth? The hard cast is costly but you could possibly still delve out cards to even make it less expensive than Titanic. Sideboard for sure, in a deck like this you won't wanna be able to delve too many cards because that will mean you're VERY behind, but it could prove useful vs. high amounts of removal.

I would put in an Assault Formation and take out a Kessig Recluse. Try to ad the giant growths too, because a lot of people wouldn't be too sad to let one or two damage in, and they wouldn't want to lose a creature to the deathtouch, so it would be easy to do at least 4 or 5 damage quick with Deadly Recluse+Giant Growth. Maybe some Mutagenic Growths and Seal of Strengths as well? Those are both pretty inexpensive.

Your noble is included in your list of 60 cards, so you can shave a card from your mainboard.
For testing purposes on Tappedout, you generally want to have your Noble in mainboard, since you'd need to swap cards in and restart the game when in playtest mode if you want to access your Noble.

Standard Bearer is a card to be worried about. But it's in sideboards. The chances of seeing it game one are suuuuuper low.

Thanks for the upvote! I can't take credit for the list though! I found it on Hareruya when it 5-0'ed a few months ago. I do agree that the Crop Rotation toolbox is sweet. On the question about Counterspell, it's actually never happened! I've had wins and losses against Delver, and the spell resolves 100%. It might be because they underestimate it, or don't know what's happening. Also, I'm very careful as to when I cast it. I never cast the card when there are two up. I'll usually bait it out with something else. However, if it did happen, the deck can function off 2-3 lands, so depending on how many lands I had out determines how bad a counter would actually impact me. And with Teachings, it depends on if I have a good opening hand or not. After turn 4 or 5 if I haven't won, it's probably not going to happen since Teachings is removal&counter.dec. Hope that answered your question!
On the Seal of Strength Vs. Giant Growth question, you're example is the exact reason I prefer seal over growth. Having a turn one play that can protect your Ichorclaw Myr or Blight Mamba from Lightning Bolt, or -1 effects after you tap out is huge. You do lose the instant speed, but if you play it before you cast your creature, you're essentially getting the same result. Also, personally I believe that when you play any creature with infect, the opponent already know's what your game-plan is barring they are new Magic in general. So how much 'hidden' information do you have? I hope that makes sense.
Thanks for the comment!

I really like what you've done here. The Crop Rotation toolbox is really awesome. How does it work against a Counterspell matchup, like Teachings? It seems like they could really getcha when you sacrifice a forest going for Sejiri Steppe or Khalni Garden, but it gets countered.
I am also curious to hear your thoughts on Seal of Strength vs Giant Growth. I figure the power of seal is the 'mana storage' aspect, where you can cast it turn 1 but crack it turn 3 when you swing lethal. Does that outweigh the hidden information that Giant Growth provides? Or is there some other reason I should be running seal over growth?
+1 awesome deck.

Burl the only reason I don't have Gitaxian Probe in the deck is because I was trying to save as much money as possible. Plus Peak is instant speed. I think I like Seal of Strength over Llanowar Augur because I have to sacrifice the Auger during my upkeep. With the seal I can sacrifice it at instant speed. Thanks for the suggestions! I'll consider putting the probe in.
