Yeah, seeing what you're saying about the raptor vs the apparition, I think you both have a strong point. I think maybe I can rest on Evolution, Karn's Bastion, and Ajani for my recurring proliferation and have a stronger bulk in my deck. But now I'm wondering if it's worthwhile to hold on to Pollenbright, or if maybe I should edge my curve higher to include Nissa, Who Shakes the World , Trollbred Guardian , or to even mainboard my oozes.

Also, I see what you mean for the Incubation combo, but I don't think I have anything worthwhile to use that to ramp into. Thank you for the tip, though, I never considered that combo before!

I'm newish to Magic and even newer to this site, and I'm really surprised and happy to see all the friendly help! Thanks so much, everyone!

Added Trollbred Guardian to the Maybe board although I will put it in in place of Emmara, Soul of the Accord . I know it feels as though Emmara is a better fit but I have found in practice I am maybe only tapping Emmara to convoke the Venerated Loxodon or Worldsoul Colossus , so maybe only tapping it twice in a game to create a single 1/1 soldier with lifelink each time. March of the Multitudes is much more of an engine for this and given that by the time we play this we have created some big creatures using Worldsoul Colossus and Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi (the later can be evoked very early on in the game if an Incubation Druid has been used), the ability of Trollbred Guardian to give our Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi Trample on top of it's instant speed and haste makes for some very nasty synergy.

Oh! I didn't know Trollbred Guardian existed, but it definitely fits!

As for what to cut, I'd say that you now have better ways to grant trample besides Gruul War Plow .

Petrified Wood-Kin seems a rather mana intensive, but I'd say give it a try before writing it off, since I've never played it before.

Burning-Tree Emissary is one cool gruul, but a "free" 2 mana 2/2 doesn't really provide much utility for you.

My overall rule of thumb is to try out the different cards when you can, to see if you like how your deck plays. Over time, you'll get a better sense of what your deck does and what best fits the theme or your playstyle.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help with cuts, hope this helped a little!

And what do you think about Trollbred Guardian

joaoguaxinim, I'd like to say that there is a brilliant rationale for these, but there's really not.

Applied Biomancy is a cheap option to bounce defenders; something that I can slot in if an opponent has some creatures that are causing a lot of trouble.

The extra copies of Biogenic Upgrade and Galloping Lizrog are just backups in case I run into a deck with lots of removal and I need to be prepared for losing my bomb.

Trollbred Guardian is really just filler. Once I pick up a couple more copies of Frilled Mystic I'll probably slot those in and pull out the trolls. I'm open to suggestions if you have some ideas.

@maddkatt There is also Trollbred Guardian that I think would be a good include but again, unsure how to fit it in. He makes everyone a little better, especially Hungering Hydra
