Serra Avatar's power and toughness are each equal to your life total.

When Serra Avatar is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Okey, cool! Then I would firstly recommend to take away four lands since (mathematically) you only need about 36 lands to have a good enough chance to draw them without drawing too many at any given time (also depends on how you shuffle of course ;) ). Then I would also again recommend to take a look at my deck when it comes to which lands you should play to up those a notch since there are a lot of lands that aren't very useful (especially the double-lands with no other effects) in the precon.

Other cards I genereally recommend to take out other than the lands:

Crystal Ball

Seer's Lantern

Adarkar Valkyrie

Conundrum Sphinx

Duskmantle Seer

Enigma Sphinx

Geode Golem

Jeskai Infiltrator

Loyal Subordinate

Loyal Unicorn

Magus of the Balance

Ninja of the Deep Hours

Serra Avatar

Silent-Blade Oni

Sower of Discord

Army of the Damned

Skull Storm



So these are cards that I don't feel are good enough for the deck idea (casual/budget or not) or simply lack theme-quality. Feel free to ask if you need help replacing these cards with the cards you have or find cards that could fit the deck! :)

Hey MizzMizz, I am guessing this deck includes your own life gain. Aetherflux Reservoir is a auto include. Blood Tribute is also a great card. Revival / Revenge is also great. Exsanguinate is a very good auto include. Serra Avatar . Beacon of Immortality and Vizkopa Guildmage .

In terms of commenting and using tapped out, look here. It's a basic understanding of commenting and at the bottom there are ways to tag either decks or other users.

For Oloro, you seem to have only so many cards that really say "I'm going to win if you don't get rid of this" such as, Felidar Sovereign , Serra Avatar , and Sanguine Bond (amongst others), so I would recommended some possible creature tutors like Eldritch Evolution or Fierce Empath .

The former, Eldritch Evolution , puts it right on the battlefield but you don't have any creatures you want to sacrifice other than some chump Spirit tokens you may have created; and the latter, Fierce Empath , is really cheap and is able to search for two of the previously mentioned threats - can also find Sphinx of the Steel Wind , Magister Sphinx and a couple others.

Just a Thought but with the color protection spellsdo you think Serra Avatar and Malignus would be a good inclusion?
