Mana curve is super high; should probably run more lesser-drops, and perhaps some more actual Goats.

Thriving Ibex is the only Goat in your actual colors, but it's energy-themed, so it's probably alright if you don't want to run it. That said, it's at least a 3/5 for 4 after attacking once, which isn't bad.

Springjack Shepherd is probably the one you want to run. You might need some more permanents with white mana symbols in the cost to make it worth it, but it can absolutely crap out Goats if you do.

Shared Triumph or Crusade not only are fantastic anthems for your tokens, but also would provide devotion towards Springjack Shepherd.

Happy brewing!

Think Twice is excellent value cantrip, especially at instant speed.

I second Eel Umbra and Spider Umbra; protecting your commander is pretty important. Along those lines, Regeneration is decent if you're wondering how to utilize your mana dorks late game.

Gavony Unhallowed seems like the nasty beater this deck wants; extremely high toughness and gets big really quickly.

You could try Unearth in place of or alongside Raise Dead, I think. More efficient, and is able to target most of your creatures anyway.

Grubbernaut, thanks for your comment! I'm definitely flip-flopping between the Rager and Zealot in the slot, and only playtesting is really going to tell. For now I'll be trying out the Rager, because my mana curve is pretty low and I think I can afford running a 3-drop with an extra point of power and toughness, but I'm going to try out both. Also MBS's Phyrexian Rager is one of my favorite Magic artworks of all time.

I might give Satyr Wayfinder consideration if I find I'm tripping up on my Anglers or I'm not hitting delirium enough. But I was probably going to run Grapple with the Past or Grisly Salvage first, if it came to that, I think.

Thanks again!

With the unbanning of Bloodbraid Elf in Modern, it's probably worth a few slots, right?

Not sure what you'd replace, just a suggestion.

I'm surprised by the lack of Pallid Mycoderm. Sacrificing Saprolings for team pump? Yes please! Also works well with Deathspore Thallid.

I would actually main a Lumithread Field/Spidersilk Armor or two to protect all your 1/1s.

Fists of Ironwood is a great follow-up to a soul sister; the trample isn't important, but having a Dragon Fodder-esque spell for Saprolings seems invaluable.

Gruesome Fate is probably the card you'd want to replace Harsh Sustenance with.

Awesome list!

I haven't played too much competitive Pauper, so I guess you can take my list with a grain of salt. That said, there are some pretty strong arguments for these:

1) Lotus Petal - Free mana is a powerful effect in any format, and this card is the most flexible variant in Pauper (Simian Spirit Guide can only produce red).

2) Lightning Bolt - The most versatile removal/game ender in Pauper. So good, it's even banned in Standard. :P

3) Delver of Secrets  Flip - One of the most efficient creatures in the format, has decks named after it even in normal Legacy. Should say something about his power level.

4) Brainstorm - Instant-speed card draw that gets all the better with shuffle effects. Great with the aforementioned Delver; just so versatile.

5) Rancor - The card that wasn't supposed to be. Apparently it was originally put in the file as a card costing 1g, but it got printed at one mana. Counters the one thing bad about enchantments; getting two-for-one'd.

6) Gurmag Angler - The best creature in Pauper because its 5/5 statline and color is crucial. Oftentimes comes out early, crushes blockers and shrugs off most removal.

7, 8, 9) Urza's Tower, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Mine - Never actually played against these cards before, in any format, and I almost discounted them because they need to be set up, but seven mana on turn 3 if you play your cards right is an absurdly powerful advantage in Pauper. They drop threats even the Angler can't compete with. For that reason, they take the last three slots.

You're probably running enough card types to use Strange Augmentation effectively, especially if you cycle Barren Moor.

Cartouche of Ambition seems like a decent enchantment. Shrink/kill something, and gives your dude lifelink to counter other Aggro strats.

You might want to run some spot removal; Paralyze is ineffective later in the game. Good old Doom Blade or Victim of Night ought to do it.

Neither Sylvan Scrying nor Bane of Bala Ged are pauper legal. TappedOut is not very good at determining pauper legality.

To replace, I suggest Maul Splicer or Aurochs Herd, and filling out your playsets of Crusher and Crop Rotation.

I'd probably add a couple Angelic Purge for some super strong, versatile removal. Aether Spellbomb is also an all-star that can be followed up with a counterspell, get an extra Bleak Coven Vampires trigger, or make infinite blocks with Leonin Squire.

You also might consider a singleton Wail of the Nim in the sideboard to deal with creature swarms.

Nice list! I built a similar list a while back that focused more on Equipment and less so metalcraft.

Have you considered Porcelain Legionnaire? Super aggressive drop that's an artifact to boot.

February 1, 2018 2:02 p.m.

Monogreen casual Timmy decks always bring me back to my first few years of playing Magic. Reminds me of my favorite combo of Protean Hydra (my first mythic rare ever) and Shape of the Wiitigo. Good times.

Depending on how much you emphasize Arbor Elf + Wild Growth/Overgrowth, Mungha Wurm could be a pretty great midrange drop.

I also have to recommend Symbiotic Wurm as a nasty classic. Have fun brewing!
