Another potential replacement for Somberwald Stag would be Wicked Wolf . Only has 3 power, but 1 mana less. Also you might include Gilded Goose which can create Food for it.

I really do not like Kenrith's Transformation over Song of the Dryads . Song just hits so much more targets

also i would be very interested to hear your opinions on Gilded Goose and whether Thorn Mammoth is a viable replacement for Somberwald Stag .

Thoughts on cutting Somberwald Stag for Wicked Wolf and putting in Kenrith's Transformation for another card?

Updates to this list are in progress. The most recent change being cutting Somberwald Stag for Ulvenwald Tracker . The list reflects that change, but the Primer is still in progress. I’m helping Inkmoth keep this list updated while he focuses on the main list.

I will be running Collector Ouphe . I am considering taking out Runic Armasaur or Somberwald Stag . Both have been quite lackluster for me.

CyborgAeon: Yeah, so far nothing has really peaked my interest aside from Emergence Zone , which opens the flood gates once I go infinite making every line available at instant speed.

Currently trying to work out whether Soren841's suggestion of removing Cloudstone Curio is feasible. Chrome Mox might also be cut, even though I might be getting some degree of scrutiny for that decision, so I plan to elaborate with as much subjective reasoning as I can. I really want Root Maze in the list as well, so that might be going in Chrome Mox 's slot. I have some big changes coming soon, but I'm honestly on the fence about everything as I am a perfectionist to a fault.

As for the other spoilers. I tried Bond of Flourishing for a bit. It was okay, if it was an instant, I would've definitely kept it in. Band Together was pretty sweet, but Somberwald Stag being tutorable and bounceable has left me on the fence.

All around I need WAY more testing before I do anything definitively. The deck is now entering a phase where infinite mana/outlet means a definite win, so I want to streamline it and expand on more proactive measures now that I know its win-con is pretty secure.

Fallerup: Iona pretty much shuts me out of the game if it resolves.

Once the color is chosen, it's too late for me to respond by casting spells of that color. Iona is not yet in the battlefield at the time the color is chosen, so I can't cast Beast Within to destroy it if the chosen color is Green, for example.

Kamerot: Same thing goes for Mouth of Ronom , since it needs Noxious Revival and Crop Rotation to be looped and the damage can only done when it's on the field.

However, I don't encounter Iona too often, but when I do and I know she's a threat I usually try and storm off while she's on the stack, or play around her using Yisan, the Wanderer Bard . The Yisan route needs to have Mouth of Ronom pop op at some point though, so it can be used in tandem with Somberwald Stag . Iona is an all around terrible card in competitive formats and unless the deck's absolute strategy is to get Iona out to call green, then they'll probably almost always lose if that's the primary function of the game. Scour from Existence is overcosted and a terrible card, unfortunately.

SynergyBuild: Yeah, turn 2 Runic Armasaur is usually something I try to go for the moment it presents itself. My issue comes from when I have multiple tutors or pieces of a line I would like to start. Once you exile something, the deck has 0 ways to to retrieve it, so it has to be a piece that has an equivalent. Somberwald Stag is one of those cards I always pitch to chrome thanks to Blighted Woodland keeping that window open. Sometimes I'm stumped on what to remove like interaction, combo dork, or tutor. I end up not using the chrome and I know that is poor decision making.

As for Mox Diamond , this one has been easier as you said. I never have a problem determining what to pitch to it.
