Testing without Shefet
Any input on the subject would be appreciated. In it's place would be Sweltering Suns.
Love this idea! Thanks for sharing!
BTW, have you considered adding Sunscorched Desert to stop Saheeli combo with Shefet Monitor?

What's going on with ChannelFireball?
Are they complimenting you or putting you down?
It wasn't clear to me without context.

Also thanks! Sunscorched Desert is something I looked into earlier, but in the end is just a waste of space. It almost never works or helps since you have a bunch of fogs and counters anyways, and spending a Shefet Monitor can legit cost you the game.
Nah I'm just proud I came up with a sweet deck almost a whole week before a whole team of sweaty pro-players lol.

Great idea, but it's definitely weak to aggro, so you really need some sort of sweeper in SB. +1

Actually, it's the other way around: This deck has been great vs aggro. Like, absolutely incredible. However, it does struggle vs counterspells, so against control you really need to dedicate most of your SB slots.

it doesn't haha. Unless your opponent is really dumb an plays into Censor, you kind of just lose to them. However, people barely play that card, and when they do it is as a one or two of, so the likelihood of them actually drawing it is incredibly low, so that isn't really an issue.

lol i've been playing with it for the past couple of hours and it actually is consistently winning on t5 and t6. Lost legacy is giving me trouble tho but other than that, everything looks good. Good deck man! +1 from me

Each duel land is around $5 and you run 20, thats 100 dollars right there, not very budget

Thanks, that's very nice of you to say. :)
This deck is about $15 apart from the lands, which you can EASILY pick up online each for about $2-4 (depending on the colors). So yes, this deck is indeed budget as you can buy the entire thing for around $70-80.

Hi! I've been messing around with a similar list, and I just love the deck!
I get that Hedron Archive ramps faster, but I feel like having access to colored mana when comboing off and mana fixing in the early game is better.
Here's the link to my list if you want to check it out: Cycling Eggs

Huh Weirding Wood seems ok. The only issue I see is that it requires green to cast, which can be tricky sometimes. The colored mana is definitely a significant upside. I am very interested about how it has held up in testing, as it also might be good as Wood plays around Dissenter's Deliverance. It feels like I'd have to make some pretty significant manabase changes, but is that sacrifice worth the upside. I'm also not sure how played Natural State will be post-amonkhet, so that may also make me switch these around. Any recommendations from testing?
