A few you missed - Angel of the Dire Hour, Choking Vines and Fog Patch

Plus, Should probably include Blue cards that Bounce or Block things to prevent all combat damage. Such as - AEtherize, AEtherspouts, Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, Mirror Match, and Illusionist's Gambit

Also, while these probably don't belong on the list, cards that do damage to all attacking creatures seem like a potential add. Such as - Wind Shear and Sandstorm I'm sure there are lots others, but I won't continue since they don't really fit.

Both Wind Shear and Whiteout are illegal in Modern, haha.

I own Bow of Nylea, and it's nice, but I didn't get much use of it while I was testing it on this deck.

And finally... Second Harvest is a card I did not know existed and wow I do need to get my hands on a couple of those!! Thanks for showing that to me!! I did extensive research on token creators when I built this back in 2015, but some times the new cards slip right past us.

All very good points. I always forget how quick the modern format is supposed to be, and how stupid a lot of blue cards are.

I'm not a big fan of Growing Ranks myself because it is so slow, but it's there. Doubling Season is just way too expensive, and since you're not using +1/+1 counters at all, you're right that it's not worth it.

As for Bower Passage, now that I know you're wanting better defense against flying, might I suggest Wind Shear? Since most flyers that early in the game should all be 3/3 or 4/4, that could be enough to let your Saprolings kill them off. Or if you can get some Snow-Covered Forest, Whiteout could work too, and one mana cheaper.

Bow of Nylea can be nice, making your tokens that much more ferocious, plus you can activate it to damage flyers.

Lastly, a card I completely forgot to bring up in my last post is Second Harvest. For four mana it doubles your tokens, so maybe it can help?

Trying to come up with an instant reaction to (mass) attacking flyers. Thinking about Wind Shear since, like the Spanish Inquisition, nobody expects it.

No data for this card yet.
