Well, you can be lucky or unlucky with either. Both are worth having just the wrong land drops occasionally.
What do you think of the deck? I'm putting a Door to Nothingness in, and with a card:Druids' Repository, I think I might just be able to cast it reliably!
I'm not convinced about the Rancor at the moment. It's worth a try, but this deck is too new for me to be able to accurately judge whether Rancor will take it in the direction I want to go for the win.
Thatcher's Revolt is something I don't want to give up yet - it's great for building up card:Druids' Repository, it can work with Hellrider and Hero of Oxid Ridge for extra damage, and it can rev up my newest addition: +2 Champion of Lambholt , -2 Borderland Ranger . (He was not fitting in)
Definitely run Rootbound Crag over Copperline Gorge I know you're worried about rootbound coming in tapped, but think about it. All you need to do is drop a forest or mountain turn one and you're good for the rest of the game. If you keep an opening hand with a Kessig Wolf Run and a rootbound crag, then you need to learn when to mulligan. The rootbound crag is going to be far more reliable. You have 3 turns before the copperlines start coming in tapped. The only limitation for rootbound crag is that you can't play it first turn. I'd much have a land that comes in untapped turns 2-infinity than 1-3
Thanks, vishnarg! I appreciate the comment, I'm trying to get maximum use out of the Repository while still having a viable aggressive aggro deck if I don't get it.
I haven't been using it much because I'm married to Delver a la Drake until rotation, but after rotation I might try it out at some FNMs. If I can borrow a couple of Bonfires from my friends. :) I'll miss the Hero of Oxid Ridge , but there's little else that won't survive rotation (maybe Beast Within will become Bramblecrush ).
Surely there'll be a cool R or RG creature with Haste in RTR though!
