Sneak Attack is a card that has been on my wishlist for a very long time.

I suggest Quicksilver Amulet, Sneak Attack, and a few of the larger eldrazi. Maybe Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre? I'd get rid of Hydra Broodmaster and Harmonize for them.

Sneak Attack +Volrath's Stronghold = never need another dragon!

Also, I really like the idea of using Scion of the Ur-Dragon as the commander and abusing Wheel of Sun and Moon

She's amazing! I like how many different directions you can go with her, and how competitive or casual you can choose to be. I did not realize how hard it is to shut down the sacrifice engine once it got started until I actually played it. The biggest weakness I've seen has been cards like Grafdigger's Cage and Rest in Peace, but she is even resilient to a lot of common board wipes, which is great!

I think you're right about Disowned Ancestor, if the Outlast keyword wasn't a tap ability I'd be more interested in using it, but I do like Mer-Ek Nightblade for the rattlesnake effect.

I originally had Oona's Blackguard in the deck, but thought I would be doing a lot more combat damage than I have been and was afraid it was going to enter the "mass discard" category that I was trying to avoid. From initial play testing though, I usually am only attacking early on to get dethrone triggers before board states get crazy. I will definitely throw it in there and see how it performs.

I really like Sneak Attack coupled with my counter giving sources like the Graft creatures or Unspeakable Symbol. I have just enough in my budget to add it so that's exciting!

I recently put Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in to make sure my Tainted Lands enter untapped, and because my primary color is black. Do you think this is necessary? I could easily see cutting that card to put in another "expensive" but useful card.

Also thanks for the help! :)

Also, Sneak Attack helps turn all your creatures into Spark Elementals that come back.

Where's the Dragonstorm?

Sneak Attack would be useful.

Hey slayingmatt1234 thanks for the feedback, all suggestions are appreciated!

After looking through your deck, it does seem like we've taken quite the different direction to Karametra. When I first brewed this deck, I wanted to take advantage of the flash/recursion creatures that trigger his landfall ability into the most powerful X cost spells I could find. This led me towards a lot of mana doublers, high ramp spells, and even ramp creatures. The end result led me into 2 recurring scenarios in play; snowball out of control with 13+ lands by turn 5-6 consistently pulling Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (My personal favourite card), or getting consistently locked down by the 3 other players who do not want to see Vorinclex every game.

Now for your suggestions, I used to run Stonecloaker for the same reason you mentioned, but I never found using him more than once a turn to be helpful, and any of the enchantress creatures at same or less cost seemed to net me card advantage more often if not always.

Temple Garden and Scattered Groves will be added, thanks! (This used to be a budget deck, so I strayed from improving the land base first).

Knight of the Reliquary seemed to play too slow for me, I put a lot of creature tutoring so my main landfall triggers have to be multiple triggers in a turn. I found the same with Emeria Shepherd, thought a GREAT card, I just never looked to pick it over any 7+ drop that I normally tutor for. I also leaned towards creature protection over recursion, with cards like Eerie Interlude, Heroic Intervention, and Teferi's Protection, I always found the instant answer to boardwipes to lean in my favor and end up setting everyone else behind.

I will look to add more enchantments if I can find some that tackle the main decks in my playgroup. In my playgroup specifically, I found some interesting answers that I included in the deck. Ground Seal against The Scarab God deck, Blind Obedience against Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder 's Sneak Attack + Maelstrom Wanderer deck, and Stony Silence + Aura of Silence against Sharuum the Hegemon artifact control deck + Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith voltron equipment. The end result now, was a consistent easy 3v1 win.

If you had the pleasure of speaking to any of my friends in my playgroup, they'd tell you that in play, this deck is a TERROR. Ulvenwald Hydra is a champ for cheating Rogue's Passage into play into an easy 20+ damage, an early Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger through Natural Order always locks my opponents to pay from behind, and Worldspine Wurm becomes so easy to play with Fauna Shaman + Garruk, Caller of Beasts / Selvala's Stampede. Any of the instant X spells with a mana doubler guarantees a win ( White Sun's Zenith, Entreat the Angels, Hydra Broodmaster ). A well timed Rishkar's Expertise into Overwhelming Stampede or Genesis Wave closes out easy.

If you get the chance, please play test it! Focus on ramping with Whitemane Lion, Greenbelt Rampager with Amulet of Vigor for an easy 6+ lands on turn, and play Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger to win.

With Synod Sanctum you could exile the creature that entered with Sneak Attack and keep it on the battlefield.
