Skyshroud Elf Discussion

awalloftext - Hey, thanks for taking a look!
I honestly chucked Skyshroud Elf in just because I had one and I didn't have another Bloom Tender on hand. But I've added Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as a sort of Gaea's Cradle lite. I was on the fence about adding it and Glacial Chasm to the list. Chasm I think I'll add to the more group hug version if I can figure out group hug synergies.
And thank's for suggesting Hunter's Insight I'm not too familiar with Green card draw. I run Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , but it's mainly rummage effects with green tutors. So I was at a bit of a loss since I'm not planning on making the creatures big enough to use the more common sorcerys I know of for card draw.
I started playing during Onslaught and Dragon Mage is my favorite card from then. I actually had a few good results using it in my old play group as a surprise add in, but if the new group gets better I'll probably swap it out for something else, probably Memory Jar .
Thanks again for taking a look. :)

Hey, good start!
I think you might need to up your land count a little - even with all the mana dorks you're running. Not be a lot, but just a land or two probably; could probably cut a couple of the weaker dorks like Skyshroud Elf .
I'm not a huge fan of Winds of Change , because it puts you a card down (Dragon Mage is an interesting call though). Maybe something like Hunter's Insight or the new Return of the Wildspeaker . They're more expensive CMC wise, but I think they'll be more reliable forms of draw for you.

Deck Edit 2:
Avatar of Slaughter out -> Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger in. I decided that the Avatar of Slaughter could backfire against me as much as help me as it gives ALL creatures double strike (including my opponents). As Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger very much benefits me, it seemed like an automatic replacement.
Skyshroud Elf out -> Conduit of Ruin in. Both of these cards are a form of ramp. Yes, the Elf can help me early on, but I felt the Eldrazi search capability of the Conduit of Ruin as well as making first creature spells I cast 2 cheaper was too good to ignore. In addition to this Conduit of Ruin is searchable by Mayael.
Vagrant Plowbeasts out -> Avenger of Zendikar in. Although the Vagrant Plowbeasts served a very good role in the deck, and one that I am not yet 100% sure that I want to loose, the effects of dropping an Avenger of Zendikar seemed too good to miss.
Worn Powerstone out -> Mirari's Wake in. In the few games that I have had with this deck, the card draw is great - the only thing that can hold it back is access to mana. With the addition of Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Mirari's Wake I hope to both drop creatures onto the battlefield with Mayael, as well as hard-cast should the need arise. In addition to the mana access, the +1/+1 will also help to boost the presence of the Plant tokens put onto the battlefield with Avenger of Zendikar .
Finally, to smooth out the mana a little bit more, I did the following changes (there seemed to be too much red, and sometimes not enough white).

I use to have Gaea's Cradle in the deck until i sold my collection, so Stone-Seeder Hierophant is easy to remove. Also easy to remove Spellbook . Skyshroud Elf works so well for filtering all my green to white/red that i'm not sure how much it will affect my deck with it being removed, will try the suggestions this weekend and see how it works.

Umbral Mantle can combo with both, if you can get mana for the creatures. This can be done with any creature that can tap for three with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Earthcraft Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar and a creature that gives you tokens or a couple token doublers, Mana Echoes or a creature that gives you enough Eldrazi Spawns or Scions. It can also be replaced by Cloudstone Curio in many of these combos with Kiki-Jiki if you have a mana filter such as Gemstone Array or Skyshroud Elf. I run these things in my heavy combo deck for other combos, and I’ve figured these combos out over time by just playing the deck. These combos weren’t by design, they just happened on their own. Here’s the decklist if you want to see the options. Maybe you can find more combos that I didn’t intend, and perhaps some of those could add to the list. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/math-marath/

+1! Cool idea.
It looks like the deck revolves around 12 cards: Epicure of Blood + Reaping the Rewards, with Bloodbriar as the finisher. Since there is sadly no redundancy available for these effects in pauper, you probably need a lot of draw to ensure this happens every game.
Apostle's Blessing is an amazing defensive card that should at least be sideboarded.
Hope at least some of that helps! I (and a friend) have been messing around with Bloodbriar decks for quite some time now, so it's cool to see somebody else using the card in a new way. If you want, check out what we came up with here.
