Slippery Bogle Discussion

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.

Alright, been tweaking it a little to make it more annoying by keeping the pressure on... added Rancor and Invisible Stalker, dropped Slippery Bogle and some of the larger cost creatures that are likely to be removal fodder anyway. Still need to get a decent playtest in.
