I've been playing this deck for the past week on xmage, and after hitting the learning curve and listening from mistakes, I think it's incredibly well positioned in the modern meta right now. The fact that you can't just surgical one part of the combo makes it incredibly resilient, and the ability to surprise your opponent with a life swing of8+ cannot be more important. The survivability is off the charts, as every drain we do gives us an extra torn to keep chipping. I love this deck, and thank you for thinking on the concept. I'm going to keep refining and give suggestions as I keep testing.So far only change I've done is a gruul charm + and a dagger -. A lot of games the dagger didn't do much other than make 2 plants don't die unless I got 2 illness on the field. I found I wanted more -1/-1 most of the time... As well as fantastic enchantment hate. Blood moon, sanctity, phyrexian unlife. Can't stress the effectiveness of those circumstances enough.Also, -2 overgrown tombs for +2 whatever the blue black dual is. I kept finding myself wanting a second blue, but either not having groves or just having one blue and waiting on the second. This makes blue available from the fetch, which I'm surprised wasn't included already.I think this deck could be more frivolous with its life - especially for card draw, as decks that took apart my hand seemed to be the hardest matches.Anyways, continue the good work - I'll be coming back here often.

@Faradin I'm happy that you like the deck. I will see about taking some of your recommendations to heart. To deal with hand disruption better I have added Leyline of Sanctity to the sideboard. As we do run both Forbidden Orchard and the flip from our daggers we should be able to support the leyline.
