Bluefire016, honestly it's a pretty hard matchup if they get the god draw of Simian Spirit Guide into their combo there isn't much you can do. I think at the end of the day it's like something on the lines of 50/50. Here's what I've learned from playing that matchup.
you're at a huge disadvantage if you're on the draw (they might combo out before you have a chance to disrupt)
sometimes Anger of the Gods isn't fast enough
I've added more Collective Brutality in the sideboard and hopefully it'll do the job
because of the small amount of creatures to block with until you get zombies, it'll be hard to remove half of the creatures because of Boros Charm and Atarka's Command. If you don't respond, they just swing in for free damage, if you respond, then they'll do something.
sometimes a yolo Burning Inquiry and Waste Not on turn 3 is enough to turn the tables as the majority of the time it gets creatures, which you can block with. This is where the tables turn and you can stall enough and win.
since Dryad Arbor is both a creature and a land, you get double value
from mainboard, I boarded out Notion Thief, Drake Haven, Negate, and I guess Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip (didn't have enough sideboard so I had to keep them in). Boarding in probably goes Anger of the Gods, Collective Brutality, Dispel, and Engineered Explosives.
Since I don't have all the sideboard, it's hard to tell how it'll really do. Also since I just changed it up with the Thought Scour, I'm not too sure how it'll affect the deck's flow. We'll see soon I guess. :)

I will keep that in mind. He runs a slightly different version that doesn't go straight combo. He is a bit more creature based and not running Boros Charm and Simian Spirit Guide. He also doesn't have a Dryad Arbor, so when I get the list together and play the deck I will let you know how it worked out.
I pretty stoked to build this!

The new Torment of Hailfire card looks fun. Made me think of this deck and mono-black. Lol

haha, imsocool1234 When I saw that card spoiled I was like, hmmm can I fit this in the deck. Probably not, but it's a funny finisher if you use it for a storm variant for a wacky win con of this deck.

more notion thief's! they are amazing with burning inquiry. 1 mana draw 5 each player discards 3. why not x4 Notion Thief?

It's actually draw 6, discard 3 with that combo jonmaior, because it has to do with the exact wording. In general it boils down to if it isn't their draw step draw and they attempt to draw you get the draw, so with when we Notion Thief into Burning Inquiry because they attempt to draw when it isn't their draw phase you get it instead. So we get draw 6 and discard 3! Now that's value.
You actually only need 1 to make "combo" for it to swing games in your favor heavily. It's also doesn't work in multiples (it doesn't stack like Hero of Bladehold or Hellrider) and doesn't necessarily win games like Siege Rhino. It really is a good combo, but the decks that I play against (zoo, infect, burn....basically aggressive decks) I can barely afford one.
Funny enough, the real problem with the deck is how slow and sometimes unreliable the win con is, but whatever. This deck is meant to draw cards, make zombies/drakes and have fun while being as consistent as possible.

goblinguiderevealpls, Snapcaster Mage has basically been the deck forever as it is an excellent card for the deck. However, when Hollow Ones came out I had to make cuts to something, as Hollow One fit perfectly in the deck. So after adding 4 of them, I figured that the two Snapcaster Mages and 2 other cards were going to get cut.
3) Anti-synergy: it's the only toughness 1 creature in the deck and doesn't work well with Night of Souls' Betrayal in the sideboard. Everything else has at least 2 (including zombie tokens)
In terms of sheer power level Snapcaster Mage is definitely stronger card that Hollow One by being more flexible, but I was curious if this bulk common (Hollow One) pushed the deck further. I mean this deck contains odd cards that only work in this deck (ex. Burning Inquiry, Notion Thief, Waste Not) and they turned out amazing for what the deck tries to do. So I decided to give another odd ball a try

goblinguiderevealpls also, I have too few threats in the deck, so a 4/4 body puts on some pressure. I've had games against control, and they had no creatures so I couldn't put on any pressure.
