Like what you see, +1. Don't like what you see ? Check out my other deck Selvala, Explored and Returned with tokens

Things You May Have Missed

I missed this stuff too: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran, Hero of Oxid Ridge, and Hero of Bladehold they all buff my creatures when they attack so giving them extra attack phases to attack again, buffs them again. So its "battle cry x2" from the Hero's, and its +4/+0 form Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran on the second attack. Angelic Skirmisher also triggers twice. Not only for my extra combat phases, but my opponents as well. you're all going "duhhh" right, but i knew this too. Didn't realize i have been missing these triggers all the time.


Updates Add

So I had a hard time making a cut but I went with Quicksilver Amulet because it's only good at cheating creatures into play for cheap that's the upside the downside is you waste a turn playing it and it doesn't do anything else so it feels like a wasted slot in the deck also with the added nonbasic lands giving me my colors better this helps me out so much not having to worry about color screw. The Quicksilver Amulet was good for this... I added in Soltari Visionary for the enchantment removal. It also has 2 white mana symbols in it which helps iroas. This change also helped smooth out my mana curve
