Maybe Nature's Claim instead of Appetite for the Unnatural.

And if you want more aggro, i believe you could try some more small cost creatures.When i think of deathtouch i think of Setessan Tactics and Spider Umbra. Which could work together with those creatures.

Or, you could work on more draw cards like Harmonize.

Here is a example about small creatures for your deck: your Increasing Savagery could work with Aquastrand Spider, Scute Mob, Solidarity of Heroes, and maybe Forced Adaptation. Also, you could use another planeswalker like Nissa, Voice of Zendikar.

Hope it was useful.

XownagerX on Planar cleansing VS Totem Armor ...

In case of Wrath of God, as it resolves, Spider Umbra will be destroyed instead of the 1/1 creature it's attached to. Everything else is unaffected because Totem Armor says: If enchanted creature would be destroyed, instead remove all damage from it and destroy this Aura. So yes, the creature and the aura's besides Spider Umbra remain unaffected.

In case of Planar Cleansing, as it resolves, everything would be destroyed at the same time, so before that happens, the Totem Armor will save the 1/1 creature by destroying Spider Umbra instead. Then Spirit Mantle and Daybreak will be destroyed aswell. So yes, the creature is saved and the aura's are destroyed.

Wissy on Planar cleansing VS Totem Armor ...

Good evening.

Let's say my opponent has a standard 1/1 creature enchanted with Spider Umbra and also Spirit Mantle with Daybreak Coronet.

I then play Planar Cleansing. I know the Totem armor will save the creature but will the other two auras attached to it also be destroyed due to the effect of Planar Cleansing?

Also; same situation - I play Wrath of God instead. I am assuming that the totem armor will save the creature AND the auras attached to it.

Thanks in advance guys

I built your deck a few months ago and also found something very similar on mtggoldfish.com, so thanks for the fun. But after play-testing, I put in 2x Primordial Hydra & 2x Ghalta, Primal Hunger for big mana sinks or beat-down opportunities I put 1x Growing Rites of Itlimoc in my build for opportunity ramp and card delving. In my sideboard I threw in 4xSlippery Bogle for burn, 4xSpider Umbra for spirits or board wipe, 2x Naturalize, 1x Dryad Militant (3 in mainboard).

Instead of Dungrove Elder I went with Lumberknot. The play is that you're avoiding creature arbitrage that way and pumping it with your dorks that you can chump block with. I also left in 3x Oran-Rief, the Vastwood and 15 Card: Forest

Apostle's Blessing and Spider Umbra are both great cards for what they do, i just prefer umbra in my build more as precautionary measure, something to use mana on to protect your creature from say Electrickery while leaving up Ranger's Guile or Vines of Vastwood to stave off the rest until you can pump and dump some infect on your opponent

I get why Apostle's Blessing is used, if you look at the deck I linked and was referencing, I use a special package of 4x Crop Rotation and 4xSejiri Steppe to do the same thing as Apostle's Blessing, but better in my opinion. So I meant Spider Umbra is more appealing to me, because I already have apostle's effect and want to add more damage as well to compensate for losing a card to rotation.

Entomo The reason Apostle's Blessing is generally played over Spider Umbra is because it can deal with bounce effects from blue decks, Journey to Nowhere, Oubliette, but most importantly, it can make your creature unblockable, which is a significant thing when you want to wedge in for poison.

I think Spider Umbra looks like an all-star here. It's more appealing to me than Apostle's Blessing because you don't have to keep mana up for it and it adds a little extra damage that infect often needs. I might have to try a few copies out in my build, Though I'm more focused on lading damage in sets of 5 using 4 power pump spells rather than 1s 2s and 3s.
