Creature — Snake
Deathtouch (Any amount of damage this deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)
When Skullwinder enters the battlefield, return target card from your graveyard to your hand, then choose an opponent. That player returns a card from his or her graveyard to his or her hand.

CyborgAeon: I wouldn't want Soul of the Harvest or Primordial Sage . That's way too much for something that starts yielding after it's in play. So I have to agree with Soren841 the cost is an issue and E-wit/beast within is already in the deck regardless of direction.
Dango: Your point is exactly why it's still in the deck, but lately the lines of winning are more definitive whereas Exarch is more for more attrition based wins.
This might warrant revisiting Skullwinder , perhaps?

I think this list running Vitalize , Ravenous Slime , Scryb Ranger , Grafdigger's Cage , and Shimmer Myr would make it better. Maybe even Skullwinder , or with a different take on the landbase; Early Harvest .
This would let the deck go off at instant speed much easier
Question is what to drop... Skullclamp needs more than 15 creatures that would die with it IMO, and Umbral Mantle may be too slow at sorcery speed. I think it is worse than staff because it doesn't draw cards, but I may be wrong in that assessment. One or the other could get dropped I think. Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip I think is too slow, but I'd need testing on that. Otherwise Blighted Woodland ? It doesn't seem like it belongs.

I would also heavily consider Cloudstone Curio in any flash matters deck
Fun build overall, don't know your meta well enough to give you niche pieces but looks like it would hold up in mine.

Hmmm. Good idea. Don't like Skullwinder . But I think the witness is better.

Hi! Any reasoning for regrowth over Eternal Witness or Skullwinder since they give you bodies for food chain? Love the deck idea btw! Trying to brew a more casual version for my playgroup since they're not so into cedh hehe

Combos look great! The challenge is going to be staying alive long enough and not showing your hand until it is too late for them to do anything about it.
I always found that people I play with hate seeing Authority of the Consuls and Blind Obedience . Those cards always draws a lot of attention and you get attacked a lot after it hits. How have they been for your deck? Do they slow everything down enough to stabilize, or do you tend to play them later in the game?
You seem to want to ramp to Primal Surge as your win con and you want to buy time to get there was try out Awakening Zone as a way to make mana that happens to chump block. From Beyond also works, but people get suspicious when they see the words search and Eldrazi on the same card. Another great card to help you get to your surge is Kruphix, God of Horizons just keep floating that mana until you get enough.
With the blink effects you have I always thought Aid from the Cowl was fun. If you need something to blink look into Attunement . With the extra card drawn from playing enchantments this is a great way to dig for that surge.
Copy Enchantment because I'm sure you want more of something.
If your plan is to win with combo, make sure you protect it. If it gets milled, or countered, you will need an Eternal Witness style card. Other options that are a bit more budget friendly are Den Protector , Greenwarden of Murasa and Skullwinder .
I don't see a lot of tutors for your combo, so if you are having trouble getting them online you may want to try Planar Bridge , Planar Portal and Tamiyo's Journal are all ways to find the combos you are trying to assemble.

Hey Allergymedsandcats! I'm beginning to build this deck too, and was hoping a more experienced pilot like you could help me? I'm using your budget list for my biggest reference point for my deck however, because my meta is more casual than competitive insofar it doesn't have stax/blood pod/breakfast hulk/doomsday/chainveil/etc etc. (link here if you want).
What is your opinion on an odd card like Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip (and Drift of Phantasms ) to replace the expensive Gaea's Cradle (which I don't have yet)? And since I also don't have Dryad Arbor yet should I still include Crop Rotation just for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Do you think Exploration (which I don't have yet) is good enough to warrant Gaea's Touch ? Also do you think Birds of Paradise or counterspells like Logic Knot / Arcane Denial / Abjure / Swan Song / Heroic Intervention are all suboptimal for my budget constraints? What other budget cards are worth mentioning for Edric?
I was also wondering if I should include Twincast / Mission Briefing / Flood of Recollection / Skullwinder / Beacon of Tomorrows to make up for the lack of warp density (I don't have Capture of Jingzhou / Nexus of Fate / Temporal Manipulation / Time Warp )? Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer <3

More combo options with Gitrog, to pull off wins with recurring Tainted Strike over and over, making massive amounts of tokens with by recurring World Shaper with either Titania or Turntimber Sower or Rampaging Baloths. I am very tempted to make TGM the Commander, but I lack discard outlets and so Meren remains most value for money as commander currently.
