Sterling Grove Discussion

Ok I dropped Mimic Vat for Sterling Grove Because I had mimic vat in there specifically to work with growing ranks to copy any creature with the upkeep trigger. And I'm considering dropping Butcher of Malakir for Avenger of Zendikar because I'm already running Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos.

So I got rid of those 4 because you are definitely right, during the making of the deck, I was honestly just being stubborn because I wanted to use them but they definitely aren't best in slot for the deck. I switched in Fires of Yavimaya because of its utility if it's targeted, Privileged Position Because it gives everything hexproof not just enchants, Argothian Enchantress Because she's tough to get rid of and a great early drop, and finally Eidolon of Blossoms because it draws off itself and is also an enchantment. Plus I think I needed the extra draw anyway. I'm currently looking for anything else I can take out for a couple other things, preferably for Avenger of Zendikar and maybe Sterling Grove for that extra defense and it's fetch trigger when it's targeted. I'm trying not to get rid of my protection spells because I want a little bit of pillow fort going on because it's more of a late game deck.

Seeing as you're very enchantment heavy, why not run the enchantresses? Argothian Enchantress, Eidolon of Blossoms, Enchantress's Presence, Mesa Enchantress, and Verduran Enchantress. You can't ever have enough card draw. :D
If you are looking for cards to remove, I personally think Koskun Falls is really weak in here unless you're facing off against infect constantly. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Growing Ranks are quite weak by only producing a single token a turn without a token doubler up. A good replacement for Sorin is Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury as she has more tool-boxing capabilities, this is assuming you like the planeswalker token producers, which are quite slow. Also I'm not sure what Hardened Scales is doing for you here either..

Hey TheRedGoat! I really like your idea of Meloku the Clouded Mirror. I haven't tried her or Cloudstone Curio yet. I think they'd fit into a slightly different landfall deck archetype than what I have here. My only worry is not having enough effects that allow me to throw the lands back out onto the battlefield from my hand but otherwise both seem like solid inclusions. For me personally, I find that the inclusion of Rith's Grove, Treva's Ruins, and especially Mina and Denn, Wildborn since they bounce and allow for extra land drops are enough bounce have been enough. I could definitely see a neat build taking advantage of replaying the scrylands to manipulate the top of your library that would be interesting.
In regards to your brewing questions, I personally do not utilize full table ramp because a lot of the time, in my playgroups and local game store it'll enable someone to combo off several turns earlier. Typically, everyone else will get the ramp effect before it loops back around to your turn. I personally, would lean towards Regal Behemoth, Mana Reflection, and Zendikar Resurgent to get you towards the Helix Pinnacle. If you do go the Mana Flare route, I'd go with no more than 3 of the effect while running Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, and Sterling Grove to ensure you're never drawing dead mana doublers and also allowing you to go down an enchantress sub-theme if you chose to. At the end of the day, it all comes down to personal preference with how much hug you want to give. Proxying the deck and playtesting it with some friends is always a great way to test out which hug effects are working best for you and which are underperforming. Hope that helps!

Sterling Grove and Greater Auramancy are good for protecting Doubling Season which is obviously the lynch pin of the deck. Maybe some more enchantment tutors like Enlightened Tutor or Idyllic Tutor. Any deck that has Ugin should have Haven of the Spirit Dragon to ultimate Ugin twice.

I overlooked Dueling Grounds and I could probably find room for it. As for Ice Cave I thought about it back when I first decided to turn my five color deck into a chaos deck but decided not to. I might change my mind and add it now. I will also look into Sterling Grove as well since most chaos and hug cards are enchantment and it would be nice to have some protection.

Ice Cave is fun in any 5 color deck - as other decks don't usually have the colors needed to counter your spells, but you can counter theirs.
