Each opponent sacrifices a creature. If you have the city's blessing, instead each opponent sacrifices half the creatures he or she controls, rounded up.

Vona's Hunger Discussion
1 day ago
Maybe an Illusionist's Bracers and an Eldrazi Monument - Monument to protect your saplings while you dig for a sack outlet, Bracers will allow you to double Slimefoots creature creation, so you can use it without having a token doubler out - you can also put them on your Fungi so they make 2 saprolings instead of one when you remove spore counters.
Getting the cities blessing is ridiculously easy in a token deck, so Vona's Hunger would be a great way to boardclear your opponents or just utterly ruin their game-plan.

I've actually been thinking of trying to build a BR stax deck myself. Making use of both Angraths, Kitesail Freebooter, recuring Storm Fleet Arsonist, Vona's Hunger, Torment of Scarabs, Torment of Hailfire. I'm not sure it's good, but it's doable.

I just playtested your deck against mine, [PRIMER] Torment From the God-Pharaoh. While I can definitely see where control matches can be difficult, I had no problem with removing your win conditions. Vona's Hunger on a lone Tyrant gets around hexproof, and because it was instant speed I could reuse it with the Grearhulk. Your build is definitely annoying for control, but unlike a true control deck it lacks the ability to "lock" the game and secure a win. I would focus on going more aggressive, because control decks thrive on being able to outlast the opponent.

OptimalGreen: Oh, jeez. It's hard to cut from this list XD
Possibly some combination of Blood Artist, Carpet of Flowers, Deathreap Ritual, Journey to Eternity Flip, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, and Vona's Hunger? But those all have proven themselves many times over...

Thanks magicsheep for the suggestions, I've definitely looked at Vanquisher's Banner to compliment the other boosts in strength, I feel I have enough removal though with Fatal Push and Vona's Hunger, I don't want to get too far from the agro side.

Love the deck, it's a beautiful build and budget too. My kind of style. I would suggest Pox if you want to go full edge. Pawn of Ulamog and Pitiless Plunderer for mana. Vona's Hunger hits hard and is cheap. Skullclamp for draw. Mind Stone for sacrifice, mana, and draw. Perhaps Dread Return for recursion.

lilgiantrobot Thanks for the quick feedback
My group and I were unaware of the rules regarding hybrid mana - we only play casually
The biggest problem is I'm not sure what to cut out to include more lands

Thanks Argy! I like all of the suggestions and here are my thoughts. Aether Hub is a good card overall, and I do like its synergy with Glint-Sleeve Siphoner. However, the mana for this deck can be a bit clunky with BB for Gifted Aetherborn, and then 1GG for Thrashing Brontodon, so I think I'll add 2 more for a start and see how it goes. Ifnir Deadlands and the Hashep Oasis are really nice additions, I'm thinking maybe three of each? Maybe two of the Deadlands but i'll test with the amounts. I agree with you with the Nissa, Vraska, Relic Seeker is much better and i'll see if I can replace two Nissa for the Vraskas. I didn't really consider Savage Stomp before, but thinking about it I really like it. I'll put in two for one Fatal Push and one Vona's Hunger. Carnage Tyrant is intresting. I'm thinking Ghalta replacement? Just one for now but I don't really want to spend that much for 3 copies. As for the sideboard, I like all of the suggestions, especially Lost Legacy (being something I didn't think of) and the Naturalize as I just thought about the fact that my deck just lets Bomat Courier run wild with card advantage. Something I am unsure of is the Gonti, Lord of Luxury. I've played with this card a lot and am not really sure about it. It feels a little repetitive with the Lost Legacy and I never felt like I was getting where I wanted with it. Is it different for you, I haven't played with it against a control deck and that is the reason you say it should be in the sideboard. I have right now in the sideboard a mix between Arguel's Blood Fast and Lifecrafter's Bestiary for the control deck matchup. Can I get some thoughts on those cards vs Gonti? Thanks again!
