Trimming Fat —Feb. 7, 2018

In

  • Brutalizer Exarch - removes non-creature permanents that are indestructible
  • World Breaker - exiles artifacts and enchantments that are indestructible and isn’t an ETB trigger, plus it can be recurred from the graveyard to my hand
  • Polluted Dead - land destruction on a creature
  • Repopulate - I needed this function in the deck to be instant speed, plus the art is cute
  • Ouphe Vandals - for stopping cards like Relic of Progenitus or Memnarch

Out

  • Wayward Swordtooth - it’s nice ramp, but so bad late game; I was thinking of replacing it with Azusa, but that much money for a card that really doesn’t do anything seemed bad, and so I reconsidered this card as well
  • Crop Rotation - it’s nice, but it doesn’t net me lands and it shouldn’t need to help me color fix; finding Urborg or Coffers is nice, but if I’m in a position where I truly need them, I can probably tutor for them a different way
  • Bloodghast - it’s neat and cute, but all it does is die
  • Sifter of Skulls - no longer necessary with the updated win condition
  • Loaming Shaman - it isn't instant speed, but it may find a place in the list again someday as a precautionary measure
