hey WUBRG... what about a trade like this
Just let me know what you think either on TO or email me @ email@example.com
Your very right about the mana base it's not right however I think going to 3-4 Temple of Abandon with 1-2 Mana Confluence or Battlefield Forge would be my first path. Stoke was certainly heavily considered but was deemed unecissary as it may hit a wider swath of creatures it's cost is hard to justify where early game I can do light spot removal on Goblin Rabblemaster and mana dorks. I have quite frequently used elspeth to clear out the board late game when they drop things like dragons and hydras. 24 lands is to many trust me I know they made me play with an extra basic land at the iq today over my xenagos; and finally the creator class may become a 4th xenagos that's what seems to be the waay for me.
capriom85: First off, I encourage you to take a look at my following deck, as I'll be using it to explain a few things.
I currently have decided to play zero copies of Elvish Mystic . Why is that? It's simply due to the fact that my T1 play is usually that of a tapped land. I have 4x Temple of Mystery , 3x Temple of Abandon and 1x Temple of Epiphany . When you add to that the fact that I'm testing the viability of running a Frontier Bivouac or even the new lifelands to avoid taking as much damage from painlands, I'm sure you can understand why ever seeing an elvish mystic in my opening hand would feel janky.
Secondly, Keranos. I currently run 1 Keranos, God of Storms in my mainboard and 1 in my sideboard. He has proven to be an absolute powerhouse when I can get him onto the field. He provides consistent advantage either through burn to the face, removal for creatures or card advantage, and this is even more potent against the other midrange decks in the format. If they don't have an answer for him, it's almost assured to be a game win for me. As you predicted, Courser of Kruphix combos incredibly well with him as I can predict what I will be doing as my draws are coming up. Additionally, I can use fetchlands to shuffle that top card to essentially choose what I will be doing with Keranos. And I can also set up the top card even moreso the turn before with Chandra and/or Kiora. AND I can set it up even MORESO with my Prognostic Sphinx . Basically, He is an engine that I can utilize almost fully without him even becoming a creature.
And that's what I want to bring up: Keranos never becomes a creature in my deck. Does this bother me? Not one bit. I've tried out Savage Knuckleblade and other cards heavy in devotion to him and they just ended up getting in the way. In Temur, I've found that it's best to focus on a green mana core (caryatid/courser), add to that a red burn core (lightning strike, stoke, magma jet, magma spray, anger, arc lightning, etc), provide the top end of G/R monsters or control (stormbreath, sphinx, Keranos) and then to hold it all together with some control elements in the form of utility walkers (Kiora, Chandra, Sarkhan) and utility spells (Dig through time, Dissolve, etc).
Hopefully this helps you out as you desired. I'll be continuing to test this archetype I've been working on in the newly created metagame. Who knows? Maybe I have enough to handle an influx or Jeskai Tempo and Mardu Midrange and G devotion. Or perhaps I have to adjust further.
Hey guys and gals, I opened a really really bad box of Khans and it reminded me why I consistenly drop MTG.
I don't live close enough to a card store to make regular visits and when I drop 110 on a box and get total value around 90 including all bulk and uncommons, it tends to be pretty discouraging. So. I am selling off all of my cards with any value and to make it easy, I'll be listing the price I'm looking to get them for. I am an avid eBayer but prefer to offer to the community first.
I prefer that if there is any interest that orders exceed or meet $20 as I will be shipping USPS first class in a bubble-wrap envelope. Thanks!

Hey! Here's your land base before my day starts.
If you can switch the numbers of Temple of Epiphany and Temple of Abandon . I would drop one polukranos and add one Wooded Foothills . Drop Frontier Bivouac to add one Forest, one Mountain, and one Temple of Mystery . That should balance out your curve a bit!
And as always these are just suggestions! But hey, you should take what you have to FNM anyway! It let's you playtest your deck, and if you do well then your winnings can be used in the deck or as trades to up your deck. Being young is no excuse, you can still go and clean house.
Consider more color fixing in your deck. Stomping Ground
, Karplusan Forest
, Grove of the Burnwillows
, Fire-Lit Thicket
, Temple of Abandon
, Gruul Turf
, Copperline Gorge
all come to mind.
Sylvan Caryatid might help improve both your ramp as well as give some early defense against any eager opponents.
Inferno Titan and Primeval Titan might also help get the upper hand, as they are both formidable once they hit the battlefield.
The new Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker might also be an interesting addition. His ultimate is just nuts, and bringing another possible indestructible creature is nothing to scoff at.
