Slippery Bogle Discussion

It's more important to have fun with these kinds of decks than to just always make them better, but if you want to try and deal with or play against like Kuldotha, Affinity, and Tron in the pauper meta, then I'll lend some words.
If you can deal with 5/5s, 2/2s, x/1s, mass amounts of tokens, and Hexproof 1/1s ( Slippery Bogle ) you can probably deal with anything, and so if you can play around that idea of dealing with anything, then you might have a smoother time playing the deck at all.
Without being able to abuse ETBs of other lands like Radiant Fountain or untapping lands more easily, Simic Growth Chamber does not help manafixing and can accidentally send you back 2 turns in mana, or is just more tapped mana than you need. Find a way to make better use of it, or just replace it with Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse, which can also be a way to shuffle away cards when Ponder or Brainstorm sees only maybe 1 card you need. The biggest issue with cards like Auras and Giant Growth is that if someone kills a creature when you cast those on it, you'll lose 2 cards instead of 1, and are now struggling to get back in. Vines of Vastwood or Neurok Stealthsuit that I use in Ahhhh! Spiders with Clothes! could be safe cards.
Hopefully that gives you some things to think about and see for yourself where you end up with your deck :)

Your best combo for a deck like this is going to be Geist of Saint Traft + Steel of the Godhead . Geist becomes a 4/4 hexproof, unblockable, lifelinker, that swings for 8 every turn starting on turn 4. Its a really strong combination. You may also be interested in something like Bruna, Light of Alabaster.
Some other good aura stuff:
Spirit Mantle (makes unblockable since creatures cant block it)

Like always Ratchet Bomb is great if you expect to use it vs CMC 0 and CMC 1, where we have good targets in Chalice of the Void, Death's Shadow, Slippery Bogle, Relic of Progenitus, elves, etc. But it's rather slow and unreliable after CMC 1. We want to get rid of problematic cards like Rest in Peace and Etched Champion, but also to have the versatility to deal with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Liliana, the Last Hope, Izzet Staticaster, etc.

Concerted Effort is probably better than Odric, Lunarch Marshal. (not legendary, starts at Upkeep instead of Combat Step) If you decide to work on this deck more, I'd suggest 4x Concerted effort, 1-2x Odric.
Creatures to cut because they don't jive with Effort or Odric: Lost Leonin, Priests of Norn, Blighted Agent. Since Infect doesn't work with the Effort or Odric, I'd also swap out Tezzeret's Gambit for Divination.
If you want Hexproof, I think Slippery Bogle is going to be just as good as Invisible Stalker for 1 less CMC since neither the Effort nor the Odric can grant unblockable. And, with First Strike/double strike/flying, you don't really need it either. All that said, since none of these abilities are truly static, I think hexproof is probably just not really worth it at all.
Aerial Responder and Fencing Ace strike me as pretty good here. I'd probably go at least 3x for each. I also think Knight of the White Orchid would be really good (mana ramp+First Strike) and Courier Hawk would be good here. All together, I'd want at least 20 creatures for this build, maybe as many as 24.
I think Faith's Shield or Gods Willing will also be pretty good here. I like the Shield because it will work on Concerted Effort but can also be cast on a creature to give all your creatures protection. On the other hand, Gods Willing will also work on your all your creatures and give you a Scry. I'd drop some Ice Over or Spell Pierce for it.
You might seriously consider swapping Black for Blue. Typhoid Rats sharing deathtouch sounds pretty nasty to me. You'll also get access to black evasion: Fear, Skulk, Menace, etc.
I'd drop Aether Vial because it's stupidly expensive.
Add Glacial Fortress if you're sticking with white/blue.
