Firebones675 on black green countres

From my experience there are only ever 2 kinds of decks that can get away with not needing to include removal: Decks that can just ignore the opponents creatures and just kill them outright in a few turns (like modern Ad Nauseam) and decks that are so blistering fast that the opponent has to keep making unfavorable blocks to stay alive and never have time to cast their good creatures(Like infect). I'd definitely include some. Within green black you have Murder, Fatal Push, and Ruinous Path good options.

Here's some cards that I could see getting cut:

Walking Ballista; personally i've been pretty underwhelmed by this card. Early game it's not worth casting and late game it's really inefficient.

Glint-Sleeve Siphoner while I think this is an ok card I think you can cut atleast 1-2 and still be fine

Greenbelt Rampager Really wish this card gave you option to pay or not instead of forcing you. I havent played with this one at all so it might be better than i'm giving it credit for but attune seems like a better way of getting energy and I think you have other cards you could run here instead of a 3/4 with no other abilities once in play.

I could definitely see it making your mana more awkward but Solemn Recruit hits like a truck once it gets going even without the snake in play. Fortified Village Concealed Courtyard and Servant of the Conduit could help you cast it and any other white cards you want to include.

Maybe take the number of Yahenni's down to three? For a creature who's biggest bonus is that it often dodges removal, you'll probably often end up with one sitting in hand. One suggestion might be Solemn Recruit to be another growing threat (although admittedly "dies to shock" is going to be very relevant). Decommission might be helpful in the sideboard against the inevitable heavy artifact decks in the format. Otherwise this looks like a fun list! :)

Yeah man. So. Best decks have a theme. Whether it's playing things for free with Aetherworks Marvel or control with a solid black and blue deck or ridiculous creatures like Verdurous Gearhulk building on a Solemn Recruit, these cards have a synergy to them which play together and build into a combo.

Maybe you have a combo. I just see a bunch of random cards in a list. So work on your combo and explain it in the description.

I might splash white too for Oath of Ajani and Solemn Recruit. Also go up to 4 evolving wilds to help with revolt triggers.

bewarekraken That might work as a way to (eventually) close out the game, not sure what to cut for it, maybe Solemn Recruit?

Does it really need to be tribal?

I mean, one of the best aggro creatures are Solemn Recruit and Aethergeode Miner. One is a constant 3/1 with evasion. The other one is 98% a 3/3 Double Strike for . Anyone of those is better than Town Gossipmonger  Flip or Thraben Inspector.

Plus, you should include 4x Hope of Ghirapur. Yes, it's legendary, but it will keep your opponent removal at bay. You could play it with Restoration Specialist or other similar creature that can net you a creature/artifact form graveyard, and you are virtually immune to swipe removal (your deck's weak point)

Kari Zev, Skyship Raider is slightly annoying at best. after playing with her on paper i was not impressed. She is no Brimaz, King of Oreskos or Hero of Bladehold and works best with revolt triggers. like with Solemn Recruit. I would argue that Lifecrafter's Bestiary is better than Mentor of the Meek because of the scry every turn and there is very little token generation in this deck and Mentor of the Meek can only be used with creatures of power 2 or less.

Looks like i'll be dropping a Solemn Recruit and Thalia, Heretic Cathar into the deck in place of the Gideon's you have (Although I am likely to have my own 2 copies of Gideon soon, for cheap). Looking forward to seeing if I can still stick it to people especially in my super control heavy meta at my LGS.
