I'm not sure. Maybe take out another Sweltering Suns because it takes out your Glint-Sleeve Siphoner. Its your call though.

I am really enjoying this deck concept. What about some board wipe style cards like Hour of Devastation or Sweltering Suns. May depend on if your meta has any aggro decks that will get in underneath you.

Why spend the big $ on fancy cards when you can just cast your opponents' expensive cards?

i like the idea, but i dont like the fact that you have so many double manna CMCs in a 4 color deck. I try to avoid them when going 3 colors already. started this deck up a few times and you get single digits for each color by turn 6-7, nevermind double digits. what this does is it creates a bunch of dead cards in your hand until quite late in the game, and at times it will be too late. Not sure how many times you actually get to play Vraska's Contempt or Sweltering Suns. You definitely need some more manna-fixing in this.

I totally understand. Unclaimed Territory taking up a drop wouldn't be a bad thing since a third of your deck is based on casting creatures of varying colors. If you have been struggling with aggro matchups then I can see why out-aggroing their aggro can get annoying. I suppose the meta where you play must make this particularly difficult. Upon looking at this a little further, I just noticed you aren't running any instants outside of your sideboard. Maybe instead of Sweltering Suns which hurts your creatures and makes most of them susceptible to a Magma Spray. Settle the Wreckage could be a nice one-sided wipe replacement, especially since you are already running white?

While I agree Torrential Gearhulk is a great card you also have Flood of Recollection which can bring it back and regardless just being able to play it once will most likely wipe the board and to make it better your only creature cannot be killed by it. So I honestly think it would fit very well as a 2 of in your deck. I dont know if youve play tested much yet but if I took this to a local FNM Id get destroyed because almost every deck I face it a fast paced aggro deck whose perfect weakness is Sweltering Suns.

Oooo... I like that combo.If your worried about vampires swarming me for game. I have Sweltering Suns, and In an earlier version of the deck had Yahenni's Expertise. Should I add that back in?

@ divinagon I was originally running one fetid pools and one Drowned Catacomb for the two Botanical Sanctum. I do agree with you about the Sweltering Suns but my local meta has a lot of big dinos so Bontu's Last Reckoning is just better in that situation. Thanks for the insight though(:

Thanks GalaxyCat for the upvote and your suggestion! I think Sweltering Suns is a fantastic idea as it can be played or cycled to get it in the yard. The only problem with it is that it's a sorcery. It can't be brought back by Torrential Gearhulk which is the decks main beater. That's why I think I'll put it in the sideboard. I'll take out Ceremonious Rejection from the board as the deck should be able to rely on Abrade for those pesky graveyard hating artifacts in standard.
