I think maybe the whole set lists for MM3 and PCA aren't up yet?

I could not add the following cards:Felidar Umbra (PCA), Graceful Reprieve (MM3), Preyseizer Dragon (PCA), Sever the Bloodline (MM3), Thunder-Thrash Elder (PCA), Ulvenwald Tracker (MM3), Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree (PCA), Wall of Denial (MM3)

bushido_man96 Smokestack is a great card! It's really good with tokens, and i hadn't even though of using Rancor with it. Very clever!

Grave Pact is a little out of price range. though i did try to add all the effects i could run with it, maybe i could also run Custodi Lich as another of that effect. Any thoughts?

TheDoctor_Y2K More goats more better right? I'm not sure i run enough artifacts to fully utilize Trading Post. Although the post does do have a lot of options, which is good. This is my first time running Springjack Pasture, do you run it? If so how often are you sac'ing goats to get mana? I was mostly considering it a colorless Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree.

Looking good, Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree can help with token production and be a land. Intangible Virtue can buff up your tokens. Rootborn Defenses for token production and to protect your creatures. Those are just some ideas ;)

I think you should cut the Soul Sisters. The only real payoffs I can see are Aetherflux Reservoir and Well of Lost Dreams, which doesn't seem like enough to justify the slots. Trostani can already gain you the life you need for those, so I wouldn't bother.

I would also cut the Aura of Silence for Aura Shards. I think that over the course of a game, you'll get way more value out of the repeated triggers than the taxing effect.

I would also switch out Banishing Light for Oblivion Ring.

Fertile Ground seems like an odd choice to me. You are a 2 color deck, so having a cantrip that just fixes your mana doesn't seem that great imo. For fixing, I'd run Selesnya Signet, Wildfield Borderpost, Utopia Sprawl or Talisman of Unity instead, since they also ramp you. I'd also cut Mana Bloom. Cryptolith Rite seems better in this deck.Other ramp suggestions: Skyshroud Claim, Nature's Lore, Sol Ring, Avacyn's Pilgrim.

As for lands, it looks like you're on a budget, so I'll keep it simple. Canopy Vista, Command Tower, Sungrass Prairie, Fortified Village, Temple of Plenty, Savannah and Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree are all pretty nice options and easy on the wallet.

Zebra Unicorn too

i'm just going to send you the rest of the cards on facebook, i got bored typing out this entire thi

Hey Goldrodger558,

I really like what you're doing here. I've been looking real hard at the new Saskia the Unyielding Commander 16 deck so seeing a user-made one is pretty exciting. I think my biggest worry with this build is the manabase. For the size creatures I'm not sure you have a solid enough foundation but on top of that there are some real cool lands I feel like you should take advantage of.

First up, when land is a little tight already I'd suggest switching some of your bounce or tap lands out for shocks like Godless Shrine or other solid multi-colored options like Stomping Ground, Grove of the Burnwillows, and even the brand-spanking new Concealed Courtyard.

Moving away from that I would really suggest using Grim Backwoods. With so many wimpy creatures being pumped out it pays to have the necessary outlets and in the mid-late game a little extra card-draw at the expense of a saproling seems like an easy trade to me. Almost in parallel to that is Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree. I noticed a lot of your creatures have "creature-entering-battlefield" triggers so having a designated source for creature creation could be a really good addition. Finally in the lands category we have a wonderfully simple land for any group-hug deck...Blighted Steppe. That could come in real handy real quick when perhaps an Ulamog deck has decimated your deck and Scion is right around the corner. Obviously some of those suggestions are cost-prohibitive but maybe they'll spark intuition of a cheaper option.

With that more solid mana base I really have nothing but praise for your creature selection. A good collection of triggers and powerful beasts to deal out the damage in the long-haul. I would ask why Athreos, God of Passage isn't making an appearance in such a creature-heavy deck...but I just love Gods so I'm a little bias there.

While I don't think Deadbridge Chant doesn't add a whole lot of competitive value I think it would be hilarious in casual play. Other than that great strategy, awesome four-color base, and I hope it works out!
