Keen Sense -> Night Soil - It's draw, but generally I want to use my counters for making tokens, and I still have Snake Umbra in here. Night Soil is token creation and graveyard hate

Mountain -> Gavony Township - Just got my hands on one of these, I think it would be good in here

Phyrexian Altar -> Divine Visitation - I need the Altar in another deck and I just got a Divine Visitation so there you go

I do recommend Blight Mamba because it's resistant to a lot of common modern removal, like Lightning Bolt , Fatal Push , and Supreme Verdict .

Put a Keen Sense or Snake Umbra on the creature with the lash to draw a bunch of cards.

@ThoAlmighty I'm not saying they aren't good on their own but there are better alternatives, like Snake Umbra which gives totem armor, and +1/+1 in addition to the draw or Mask of Memory which lets you draw two cards.

jconeil1988 Thank you for the feedback! As for your creature base suggestion, I think you're totally right, if I were going the route of a bogles deck I would certainly want 2x Slippery Bogle , 4x Gladecover Scout , and 4x Kor Spiritdancer . However, my idea with this deck was to make a deck inspired by bogles, but also keep the -1 colorless mana for enchantment spells synergy given by Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Herald of the Pantheon and possibly x1 to x2 Satyr Enchanter . I know bogles is far more competitively effective and certainly far more streamlined, but I felt the -1 colorless mana would be fun and allow me to play higher cost enchantments.

But I also feel like this initial version of my deck doesn't capitalize on that -1 colorless mana synergy enough to make it an effective part of the deck. I was certainly thinking about taking out all the creatures except possibly x4 Slippery Bogle , 4x Gladecover Scout , and 2x Kor Spiritdancer x1 Danitha Capashen, Paragon and x4 Herald of the Pantheon . This would leave a little bit of room to add x1 or x2 Shalai, Voice of Plenty ! I have to say that is a great recommendation!

I don't think my deck is quite the right place for a Dryad Arbor, though. From my understanding that creature land is played in bogles 1. because bogles runs fetch lands, and 2. because bogles suffers from taget player sacrifices a creature effects. My deck doesn't run any fetch lands, nor does it suffer anywhere near as bad from sacrifice effects, especially if I can get Sigil of the Empty Throne into play. That's also why I have a second Sigil of the Empty Throne in the sideboard, to switch out for Sphere of Safety if im having to sacrifice too often.

I also forgot to put the one Path to Exile in my aquireboard. Its the only card in the decklist I do not yet own. However, I actually really love my Seal Away for what its worth. It's perfect for the -1 colorless mana synergy, sometimes costing the same as Path but is instant speed with only the drawback of being applicable to tapped creatures, which isn't very concerning in my opinion.

As for the land, I was thinking about running 23, but I think that might be the lowest I'd go without significantly upgrading my mana base, especially since I want to upgrade this deck to better synergize with the -1 colorless mana abilities by adding more high-cost enchantments.

Some possibilities I've been thinking about were x1 Snake Umbra instead of, or perhaps in addition to x1 Keen Sense especially if I'm going to be taking out the draw from Satyr Enchanter , or also Bear Umbra although it is a bit pricy, so I would likely only consider getting one. Whatever the case, I certainly appreciate your feedback! Thank you!

How do you feel about Library of Leng being added to the deck?

It seems a bit out of place, but it does allow you to go infinite with Borborygmos Enraged provided that you have some form of card draw like Keen Sense , Snake Umbra , or The Gitrog Monster . I do understand that you have not included some of these combo pieces in your deck, but I just found this to be a very interesting synergy.

The library also has the benefit of providing no maximum hand size. However, this may be irrelevant because I don't know the extent of the deck's draw power.

Thank's hkhssweiss for the suggestions

pookypuppy6 you are right. I also appear to have 2 Snake Umbra 's and 2 Sphere of Safety 's. What the hell was I doing when I made this deck?

I'll fix that soon
