First up, bumping doesn't work. And you bumped it less than 3 hours after posting.

Secondly, format?

I read an article about Expertise cards and Fuse cards. Apparently you can cast both sides of a Fuse card with an expertise. Maybe that would be something you'd want to do here?

Not any more Recover819. That got changed with the new CMC of split cards rule.

If you have ways of reliably getting access white mana, Gavony Township can quickly snowball your tokens out of control in a few turns, even faster if you got ways to untap permanents like Hidden Strings, throw Hardened Scales on top of that and you got yourself an avalanche. Though not as powerful - but in your colors - is the weaker version: Novijen, Heart of Progress

Also if you got any enchants that affect all of your creatures, Infiltrator's Magemark would effectively make all of them unblockable to non-defenders.

EDIT: Ignore the second paragraph of my last post.

no,i got what you were saying :) i need to delete this post, i posted a real decklist. i hope i don't sound argumentative here, but i'm trying to avoid +1+1 AoE type effects. mostly because this deck is supposed to purely ramp off creatures rather than mana. there's a subtle difference. like, cryptolith rite is probably one of the most important sources of mana, and in the final version of the decklist i included xenagos the reveler. it's easier to pull combo cards when you're doing only one thing. if your win condition is "swarm the board -> buff the board" then you're required to draw two cards. if your win condition is "swarm the board -> swarm the board some more" then it doesn't matter in what order you draw your cards, if that makes sense.

here's the link to the final list. i'm pretty satisfied with it, but take a look and playtest it :) it usually takes off at around turn 5-6-7.
