Recently I have tried using Summoner's Pact instead of manglehorn for additional speed. The risk of killing myself if I use it early and get stopped had previously kept me from using this card but maybe my meta could use more speed instead of more hate.
Also debating a swap of Wheel of Fortune and Frantic Search . Maybe then also Fyndhorn Elves for Wild Growth ? Utopia Sprawl might be too unreliable because it requires a forest but actually I do have quite a lot of forests.
The slots for mindcensor, manglehorn, energy flux and how many of these cards I play are details but hard meta choices for me. I'm really not sure what is worst against the decks I will have to fear most in our tournaments.

Thanks for the suggestion and +1, Chandra585!! Maybe I'll get a lucky booster and pull a Breeding Pool . If I had the $$, I'd definitely buy a full set for this deck. I wouldn't be concerned with the 2 life at all - with Chalice of Life Flip as a wincon, it's very feasible to regain that life. Additionally, as there are no one drops to play T1, it could enter tapped without any slow down. Of course, if I had a full set of Breeding Pool , I might consider adding some Utopia Sprawl . I'd probably have to completely retool the deck to make the Sprawl consistent enough to run a full set. The deck would obviously benefit from those changes. My pocket however, would not, lol. At some point, I did try to mock up a non-budget version, as I mentioned above. (Kiora's Mangroves) but that was quite a while ago, so I'd probably want to make changes to that if I were to seriously return to that fantasy.

Lanzo493 - If an opponent casts Lightning Bolt on my Mirrorwing Dragon , the spell will copy for each of my opponent's creatures and target his/her creatures. I will definitely add Apostle's Blessing or another protection spell in there. Thanks for the advice.
PlatinumOne - This deck was made on a budget and to be used in casual play. I don't plan on taking it to tournaments. All those lands are very useful, as is Utopia Sprawl and Birds of Paradise , but again this is a budget deck. I may even drop the Sylvan Caryatid for Voyaging Satyr . However, you are right about creature removal. I may add a few Prey Upon so that I can play one on Mirrorwing Dragon or Zada, Hedron Grinder after I buff up my field.

mana base definitely needs some upgrading. try to get Wooded Foothills , Stomping Ground , and Rootbound Crag . if you want more efficient ramp, replace Swell of Growth with Utopia Sprawl (which combos with Arbor Elf to potentially let you play a 4-mana card turn 2), and replace Sylvan Caryatid with Birds of Paradise .
also keep in mind that a general rule for modern is you have to either be able to win turn 4, or have a ton of interaction to stop your opponent. modern is quite a brutal format. your deck has zero interaction, and looks like it can win turn 6 at best if your opponent doesn't block and has no removal. at the very least, you need some creature removal, like Lightning Bolt and Beast Within .

Good morning, gentlemen!
CyborgAeon: I'm really glad you like the deck! I'm also very happy to hear you've been playing it! Let me know how your games have gone, so that continue to improve upon the list. Glad I could show you Dryad Arbor 's practicality in tandem with Fetches, it's truly come in handy (to a point it's essential).
Brown Ouphe - It's neat that it can stop Isochron Scepter , however, I can't instant speed cast it to stop scepter unless Thousand-Year Elixir is on the field. Otherwise, I have to hope the scepter player plays into it. It's the primary reason Ouphe Vandals is enticing, even though 4 mana for that effect is.... clunky? My testing hasn't found him too useful YET (not giving up hope, I like this card). Not aware of what YMMV means, sorry.
The fundamental difference between Yisan and Yeva, is that Yeva is literally just a Vedalken Orrery with flash in the CZ, whereas Yisan has value built in. Yeva relies on what's in hand in order to do anything.
Shaman of Forgotten Ways - My experience with this card is phenomenal and he's probably a main-stay for the forseeable future. While the deck has the ability to put everyone in a situation where scooping is the only viable option, you sometimes need to kill the table on the spot and Shaman is the main and most effective way to do it. His requirements to pop off are entirely negligible, since you're at infinite mana when he's being used for that purpose.
Voyaging Satyr : Satyr works in this context cause he's extremely cost efficient and the deck runs every Cradle land+ Crop Rotation , Wild Growth , Utopia Sprawl , and Ancient Tomb . He can fly under the radar until he needs to be exploited all while remaining a 2 drop dork. The problem with Satyr's friends is that I need to commit a land slot to pull off anything worthwhile and the deck only has one land tutor and 31 lands. Last but not least, my combo dorks are quite plentiful, so I can't even begin to wonder how much of a struggle it would be to find 2 slots for even one of them.
Thanks for the comments, guys!
