Its a colorful guide but you cant enchant hexproof creatures.

Love it! Seems like a super fun budget build. I'd recommend making more room for removal/stall like Unsummon or Perilous Voyage since this deck is pretty slow to get going. A card that I thought of that should fit nicely as a 1-2 of is Benefaction of Rhonas. Yay for budget builds!

Thanks for the suggestion!
Yeah, sometimes Essence Scatter can bridge the gap until we start playing Bogles but we have to mulligan for them sometimes. I've been experimenting with cutting the Striped Riverwinder entirely and moving 3 copies of Unquenchable Thirst into the main and that's seemed pretty good so far.
Benefaction of Rhonas is a really good idea! I'm not sure what to cut for it, though. Maybe Larger Than Life? Larger is pretty middling a lot of the time anyway and I'd be less inclined to run it if I were using Benefaction anyway.

Implement of Ferocity? +1/+1 for fairly cheap and a card draw. You can put it out early game so it makes it even cheaper when you finally need it....If there is room for it.

I see where you're going with that, but I don't think one +1/+1 counter is impactful enough for the deck. It's pretty easy for our Bogle to become the biggest creature on the board but we'll just get chump-blocked without evasion.

What if you took something out, for 2x River's Rebuke?
it's a nice finisher-removal

I do have River's Rebuke in the sideboard already, but I don't see it being applicable to enough matchups to warrant a main-board slot. Also, we're already running a bit light on lands so I don't want to run too many 6-drops beyond what we're already running.

Honestly, I'm not sure there's much room to upgrade this. Other than Carnage Tyrant, we're already running the best Bogles and Auras we can, and I'm not sure Carnage Tyrant is that much better than Scaled Behemoth outside of Control matchups. I guess you could swap in some Supreme Wills in place of the Benefaction of Rhonas' since being able to grab a land at our opponent's end step and occasionally countering something is probably better than the very rare instance of double-hitting with Benefaction, but that's about it.
One thought I had that would necessitate bouncing the budget: go Sultai for Trial of Ambition and Cartouche of Ambition. Trial of Ambition would be amazing removal in most matchups since we could play it out early and then pick it up multiple times later on, and Cartouche of Ambition would really help us win races, since we tend to fall behind on life before we get a Bogle down. We'd really need to run a bunch of good dual lands to facilitate that plan, though, plus I'm not sure what to cut (probably Unquenchable Thirst and One With the Wind, but One With the Wind is just so efficient).

This may be stupid, but I was looking for a deck like this today and found yours!
What if you switched out some forests for Rootbound Crags and ran a few swashbuckling? It's a +2/2 for 2 mana and gives a creature haste, though not sure the haste would be useful or not.
Though, really love the idea of throwing in the black lands for the trial/cartouche.

The Haste would be rather hard to use. Our Bogles are pretty expensive so they're mostly played on-curve. Red might be nice for better removal but Black gets us there as well. I tested a rough draft of a Sultai version last night and it seemed very promising, but I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for new Auras or Bogles going forward.

jparker-sartori21 I had wondered the same thing when it notified me that you had commented but didn't show anything
