Tibalt, Rakish Instigator Discussion

Tibalt, Rakish Instigator is Synergistic because he creates sac fodder that deals damage when it dies.

Get rid of Tibalt, Rakish Instigator. He really doesn't do that much. If you don't want your opponents to gain life, add burn spells. You could replace him with more synergetic options.
Get rid of the taplands. The scrying is nice, but replacing those with shocklands would do wonders, even if you only add a few and have the rest be basics. Speaking of lands, you could use a Fabled Passage to thin out the amount of lands you draw. If that's too expensive, just use better utility lands. Gingerbread Cabin would work with your food tokens theme, and Witch's Cottage would return creatures to sac.
Good luck with the deck.

Upvoted, this deck looks pretty fun to play! It seems like you've already hit on most of the ways to deny life gain, and if you were looking for any other options, I've used Tibalt, Rakish Instigator and Rain of Gore in those slots with some success.

Im missing Torbran, Thane of Red Fell, Embermaw Hellion, Jaya, Venerated Firemage, Syr Carah, the Bold, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames, Tibalt, Rakish Instigator, Dwarven Mine, Castle Embereth, Shivan Gorge, but I will get them cheap, so that's not a problem.

Would you consider swapping Angrath for Tibalt, Rakish Instigator? Lower CMC (even if it's specifically red), has an effect that stops the opponent from slowing your burn, and does the same thing as Angrath but goes wide instead of big which is probably better considering you're playing Superfriends, and they also deal burn damage.

i would possibly swap the numbers around on Justice Strike and Chandra's Triumph . Or maybe even remove the whole Chandra's Triumph + Chandra, Acolyte of Flame package and replace it with something else. Fry
And look for the shock lands rather than the guilgates. You are semi-aggro so want to be fast.
Is this for Best of 1, then you can even think of increasing the number of cards up to 75 (main + side) all in one, as they do that. If BO3, then no.
What is your plan for an opponent that goes wide (lots of creatures)?? You maybe need some sort of mini board-wipe - just to stabilise the board a bit... The new Shatter the Sky is an option, Solar Blaze , Flame Sweep .
Tibalt, Rakish Instigator perhaps for the mirror lifegain deck.

I also adore hydras and I am certainly aiming to shift this deck more in favour of them!
Now that you've brought up Rhythm of the Wild I'm super hyped to slot it in, the haste in particular is spicy with huge hydras but the flexibility that it offers is key to its awesomeness too.
Hungering Hydra , Primordial Hydra , Kalonian Hydra , Rock Hydra and Polukranos, World Eater fit the deck amazingly as well and I'm genuinely just going to slot them in right now. Managorger Hydra as well is an excellent early game drop that can get really insane if your opponent's ignore it so I'll bring it in as well.
Ferocity of the Wilds also fits the deck really well, but I think I'll pop it in the maybeboard, simply because I've run out of room for it! Tibalt, Rakish Instigator and Sarkhan the Masterless are also super interesting planeswalkers that I'll be sure to test thoroughly!
Thanks for the comment legend!
