Grubbernaut, Stinging Shot over Scattershot Archer was a meta call. There aren't any Delver decks in my group, but there is Orzhov Mimic aggro with a bunch of fliers with 2+ toughness, and a Golgari dredge/delve list that employs Sultai Scavenger.

what do you think of Stinging Shot

+1 Merfolk Mistbinder, +1/+2Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, +2 Merfolk Branchwalker, +3Silvergill Adept, +3 Blossoming Defense, -1 Deeproot Champion, -1 Verdurous Gearhulk, -2 Beneath the Sands, -4 Enter the Unknown, -1 Strength of the Pack, -2 Stinging Shot, -4 Evolving Wilds, +4 Botanical Sanctum, +1 Hashep Oasis, lowering the Forest count while raising the Island count, and cutting down to 22 land would be my suggestion.

Ok, so at this point I have 9 things to remove from the deck, due to there not being enough space for the more important cards

1 Stinging Shot

2 Shamanic Revelation

3 Maybe Druids' Repository

4 Fume Spitter

5 Rendclaw Trow

6 Spinebiter

7 Chord of Calling

8 Juvenile Gloomwidow

9 Rot Wolf

Now if there are any different/more cards I should replace then let me know but I have a question about the ramp cards. So I know I am supposed to have around 8 but what counts as ramp? The list that I have is:

1 Commander's Sphere

2 Golgari Cluestone

3 Golgari Signet

4 Golgari Keyrune

5 Sol Ring

6 Devoted Druid (Also used for my combo with Quillspike

Now the two I have more questions about

7 Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip

8 Druids' Repository

So for the last two, do they count? I would assume so but I am not 100% sure. Seriously any help that anyone might have would be awesome. I would like to buy this deck to play at my card shop. On tuesdays they have a casual EDH night. So anything that might improve this deck would be awesome. (While staying on an under $200 budget)

Thank you for your suggestions! I've been thinking about adding Ruthless Sniper for a while, but now that I have Key to the City, it makes the Sniper that much better. I like the idea of Stinging Shot as a sideboard option at least.

As for Trespasser's Curse, I do have a friend at my local FNM who has a scary token deck (like, 80 humans levels of scary). I do see your point about creature deterrence, but let's play a little game of "devil's advocate": perhaps the opposite would happen, and that people with creature-based decks would be encouraged to cast creatures more often to try to overwhelm me. I might keep them in for now, but your point is completely valid and well received. Thanks again!

i had a Trespasser's Curse in my zombie deck and i'm not too sure its that effective there and i think the same here. even though its a nice effect, i don't think you have enough in the deck to really keep it. All the -1-1 counters are going to deter him away from dropping guys anyway... maybe more of a sideboard.

I like trying out something related to help you with that card draw from the The Scorpion God with more counters. Maybe Stinging Shot -1-1 counters plus the added effect of cycling if they dont have fliers. Or Subtle Strike or Ruthless Sniper. idk any card to build that snake army

Thank you for all of that, it's a lot to take in and digest but I like the suggestions and they'll definitely get some play.

A lot of the flier hate came from this starting as a counter to a friend's blue/green merfolk deck that spammed Cartouche of Knowledge and One With the Wind but it is limited in its use and I was considering replacing the reach critters and Stinging Shot as it were.

Nissa, Worldwaker was already on my radar and I'll probably be grabbing her shortly for playtesting. I've got Garruk Relentless  Flip in another deck but he'd be useful in here as well.

My main reason for running the Druid of the Cowl instead of Llanowar Elves is because the extra one cost isn't too much considering all the mana this generates as it is, and they make a decent defense as well. My earlier build of this did have Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic but they kept getting wiped out by small stuff and my mana went with them.

I do like your suggestions for the bigger creatures though and I'm definitely looking at upping my Ivy Elemental and adding in Mistcutter Hydra for the mana pump aspect. I'll be posting a revised version of this deck later on once I've properly given your suggestions and a couple other ideas I've been kicking around a good thorough testing. I appreciate the input, thank you :)

Shaper's Sanctuary, Stinging Shot, Aethersphere Harvester, Nature's Way. I would really think about putting some of these cards in: whether in mainboard or sidedboard to get some control while dealing much damage.
