Warping Wail Discussion
5 days ago
Have you considered Warping Wail in the deck? It's a bit specific but stopping a board wipe can be nice as can an emergency chump blocker. Colorless has so few instants as it stands that it seems worth a shot imo.

I really like the list, two things stuck out to me, especially post marvel ban (expect more zombies).
This big one is, have you tried Warping Wail either maindeck or sideboard? Since cat combo left, sorceries got more powerful, so the counter is good, as is an instant blocker or playing ramp on opponent endstep. Also, the exile is a house vs zombies, exiling a recursive 2/1 or especially a Cryptbreaker is a big deal.
Second, have you done Metallic Mimic in the Walking Ballista slot? Mimic isn't busted, but it's good in tribal decks, and another way to protect your TKS by making it 5/5 is big game. Walking Ballista is a great card and ruins can add an extra counter, but I still think it could be hard to make it a relevant size. Let me know your thoughts!

You need to have at least one card that has in it's mana cost such as Warping Wail

Wolfees, thanks for the suggestions! I have looked at Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and that is in the maybe board. At this point, I'm unsure. It's a good card, but I don't yet know how it might fit. I'm tinkering with it for now.
I haven't yet had the problem of my creatures being countered, but I also haven't competitively played the deck since early March. It's possible the meta has shifted at my local store, particularly with the release of Amonkhet. That's for the heads-up as I will be watching more carefully for that. For you, though, if you're running across that, that's a viable option, as well as maybe Warping Wail in the sideboard to counter their spells back at them (which would require getting a few colorless mana into the deck).
I'm looking forward to tinkering with Rhonas the Indomitable. I don't think it will be too difficult to activate him. Between his boost ability, Blossoming Defense, and Larger Than Life (and Clear Shot gives a small boost!) I'm hoping he'll be activated enough.
I'm not going to try to splash white. That seems way too complicated. I have built decks around Odric and the first strike/deathtouch combo, and they're pretty effective. The problem is that opponents learn this very quickly and eliminate Odric quickly. However, it's been a while since he's been around in decks, so you might be able to catch people off guard. Feel free to splash and see if it works-- I' be interested to know!
Thanks again for the suggestions!

This is just a thought, but I would really recommend putting some Warping Wail into the board simply because of how versatile it is, and also I think 1 Bane of Bala Ged main-board would be pretty nice, and you could just swap out 1 Endless One for it.
