Thalia, Guardian of Thraben Discussion

since you're running BOPs, maybe Gavony Township as a 1-of (i know you dont want many non-colored mana sources, but it could be another mana dump if youre stuck with some jank hand). Here's the changes i'd make:

-4 Rancor (love it, but begs to get 2-for-1'd, when most of your creatures are bolt-able and have no evasion or protection, otherwise and it makes BOP into an actual real creature late game), -1 Forest, +1 CoCo, +1 Kird Ape, +1 Gavony Township, +1 Dryad Arbor, +1 Loam Lion.

For SB options, i like Stony Silence, Ancient Grudge, and Smash to Smithereens (in that order) better than Nature's Claim. hell, i even like Naturalize or Disenchant better, tbh. i dont think 2 mana is out of the question. since you are playing a zoo variation, you arent likely to slam a bunch of 5+ power creatures at the opponent at once, so the 4 life gain might actually matter. idk. personal preference, i suppose. it is nice to have some enchantment removal as well in case of bogles, but that kind of depends on the meta.

With CoCo in your deck, your sideboard could be open to more tech creatures, instead of some of the spells/enchantments. like Spellskite for bogles, Vithian Renegades, War Priest of Thune, Reclamation Sage, and Viridian Shaman for artifact/enchantment hate, Lantern Scout, Kor Firewalker, or Lone Missionary for burn hate. or generally a bunch of random hatebears and miscellaneous stuff to cover your bases like Harsh Mentor, Loxodon Smiter, Tunnel Ignus, Aegis of the Gods, Hushwing Gryff, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Burrenton Forge-Tender, Qasali Pridemage, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Gaddock Teeg... Basically whatever your meta has a ton of going on, theres a creature version to hate on it. I'm a big fan of Rest in Peace because it totally bones a handful of decks, but if you're firing off Collected Companys, with your SB hate lost in your deck somewhere, you stand a much better chance of pulling it out, than if it were an enchantment.

Just some suggestions. love zoo. like the idea youve got with the dino and god in there. seems cool. +1

Okay, brace yourself. I'm going all out.

Mana Crypt is in the list. Mox Diamond will go in when I get one. Chrome Mox I own but I have struggled with adding, this deck struggles on having enough cards and racing to the extra mana I am not convinced is worth the average card in my hand. I will continue to keep it in consideration though.

Blood Moon, Ethersworn Canonist and Stony Silence can be very prohibitive to my own game plan. Null Rod has the same problem but has been considered as it is easier for me to get rid of when I need to. If I was to run Blood Moon I would run Magus of the Moon instead as I can easily get rid of it if it stopping my deck more than theirs, my meta is a little basic heavy due to mono color and High Tide strategies.

Thalia, Guardian of Thraben was worse in the original draft but should definitely find a slot now. Thank you for reminding me to look at it.

Hey nice list! I used to play something very similar. Is there a particular reason you've opted out on fast mana rocks in your decks? Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, and Mana Crypt are some of the most degenerate things a cedh can do. You're missing some of the best stax pieces available too such as Ethersworn Canonist, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Blood Moon, Null Rod, and Stony Silence (still worth running at least one of these imo even if they turn off one of your own combos),

Have you considered "splashing" colorless so you get access to cool Eldrazi like Thought-Knot Seer and Reality Smasher? You're already running a couple of Eldrazi, so Eldrazi Temple fits right in here, and I think it might make your deck a lot better. I have a friend who playes "Eldrazi and Taxes", and I always have a tough time beating the lategame Eldrazi after he's spent the first few turns locking me out. Fatal Push also seems like it has a home here.

@Keith76 it's not so much of a win as much as it is making it so that your opponent can't really do much anymore. T1 Aether Vial, T2 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben + Thraben Inspector off of Vial, T3 Blade Splicer + Leonin Arbiter off of Vial, etc. Things get out of hand fast.

Thanks Heaps Rusty_Shackleford,Hero of Bladehold is a great idea! I am with you on the whole anthem thing as well. This deck is also meant to be kind of budget so Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is probably best in the maybe board. Path to Exile is definitely a card I missed, however I think Swords to Plowshares is more budget. The mongerer was just to flip on turn two, but I agree that Thraben Inspector is a better include (especially when you don't draw into a Mentor of the Meek.

I also run a human deck, with the other sigarda. A card that i've really liked in it is Thalia, Guardian of Thraben other cards you might want are more land variety, also ramp and card draw

Consider Cultivate Kodama's Reach Zendikar Resurgent Harmonize.Also Ghostly Prison is better than norn's annex for deterring attackers. Odric, Master Tactician Is also excellent

I always ran either 4 or 0 Flagstones.

The thinning is somewhat negligible and being a D & T player, you know that situation..

When all you want to do is

Path to Exile your own

Thalia, Guardian of Thraben?

It sucks like that sucks. And happens enough to not want to play Flagstones, unfortunately.

I was doing very well with my Martyr Proc deck. As it is great against Death's Shadow.

Meta Martyr 4.0

BUUUUUTTT... Storm is a huge problem and we can't play

Rest in Peace
