I'd probably drop Traverse the Ulvenwald for Nylea's Intervention. Not only is multi-land tutoring great, the flying boardwipe mode is a very nice secondary option. I dropped Traverse ages ago because in an exile-heavy removal meta and graveyard hate, I never have delirium whenever I drew that card, and it was always a Lay of the Land for me. Worldly Tutor is consistent, even if it doesn't have a foil printing.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards nyxbloom seems to me worth the try: it is a very good target for Natural Order and it will be less likely to be removed with respect to Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger . I think I will try it instead of Regal Behemoth . Furthermore, Nylea's Intervention is another card worth trying. For 4 mana it let's you get Gaea's Cradle and Deserted Temple . I still haven't decided yet whether it is better to take out Traverse the Ulvenwald or Worldly Tutor .

FYI, I am currently playing The Great Henge instead of Woodfall Primus and Collector Ouphe instead of Bramble Sovereign . The first swap is due to the fact that woodfall is very heavy on our curve and it doesn't provide much value for that cost. Speaking of the other swap, Bramble is good but it was actually the only flex slot I could think of. The choice was between it or Titania, Protector of Argoth , and the latter provides us more value. Ouphe is a nonbo with our mana rocks and with Birthing Pod , but it is far more troublesome for a lot of other decks so this is why I am currently trying it. I will let you know :)

Y’all gotta realize that there’s a HUGE difference between Heliod/Ballista combo, and the original, true, t4 combo- Splinter Twin. The keyword “flash” is an incredibly important keyword. Slamming Pestermite or Deceiver Exarch on the end step after your opponent just tapped out was devastating. That’s not possible with this combo. None of the pieces are instant speed. That makes a world of difference.

Also, the colors the combo is in. Red/Blue twin combo made for an incredibly oppressive Control deck that could just win in one turn whenever they felt they had counter backup/ or just because you tapped out. You all are talking about a g/w Heliod/ballista deck. Not controlling, at all. It would more than likely be a deck committed fully to the combo, cards like Traverse the Ulvenwald and similar will probably be used to help locate key pieces to win.

These two distinct differences (flash, and color of the deck) are incredibly important when considering if the combo will get banned. I’m not even convinced it’s playable.

There is absolutely no way that you “usually” have 2 evolution sages out before you play Tamiyo. There’s just no way to guarantee that. At all. And it’s incredibly unlikely. I’m sure it’s happened, but it’s impossible for that to be the “usual” unless you’re stacking your deck.

I might believe it if you played Traverse the Ulvenwald to search for your specific dudes, or even drew a bunch of cards. But you don’t do either.

Driemer84 Thanks for getting back to me. I wasn't sure how much you relied on your grave, but your logic makes sense. I went through most of your change log(s) to get a better understanding of your decisions and everything seems spot on. I may have missed it but have you considered Traverse the Ulvenwald ? The card is flexible and impactful at any stage of the game. Early game it can fetch us a forest and once delirium is active we can grab a needed creature/land acting as a pseudo worldy tutor/crop rotation. With how you never want your yard shuffled, it leads me to think that delirium should be active quite often.

The flexability for one mana seems exactly what we want here.

sickfreed thanks again! all suggestions are cool, only the spider spawning thing is left out, it's really really expensive for what it does!

I'm taking some time to think the mesmeric orb through, there are other delirium activated cards Traverse the Ulvenwald for instance, it could be very solid! I am ordering cards for my Kenrith deck now, but that Seedtime spice though.. such flavour, must try..

I honestly don't even know, combo isn't usually my thing... I just remember seeing that card and being really impressed at how it played with the combo. Do you need all of the "1 ofs"? I feel like you don't need most of them, but I could always be wrong on that. Also Traverse the Ulvenwald could make for an interesting choice to ensure you get the pieces you need (assuming you can get the deck to trigger delirium obviously lol).
