Said on The old ways …...

#1

Hey, thanks a lot for your many suggestions. I have a very personal style of deck building so I will take a look at them through my own lens. Yes, this will mean that the resulting deck will not be as powerful as it could be, and it will definitely include some, as you call them, 'bad' cards. I have a very strong disdain for 'staples', I prefer each of my decks feeling unique and the idea of staples kind of runs contrary to that. Of course, I have my exceptions, like Sol Ring/Lightning Greaves/Swiftfoot Boots making it into nearly every one of my decks, but that will be a reason I won't included many of the cards you point out as staples. I have no intention of making this a competitive deck, so for those of your suggestions that I don't take, that will likely be the reason. Also note that I have not added the lands yet, some of your suggestions are definitely good ones though.

Lastly, I am building on my current Omnath deck, and I have a nearly complete Champions of Kamigawa set, which allows me to very easily experiment with any cards from there, which would take preference over acquiring new cards to fill the spots, since I can, and, with time, probably will replace them later. One question I have is, since you're recommending I cut cards like Vines of Vastwood and Archetype of Endurance, one of my big worries with this deck is Sachi being vulnerable to removal, and my pack of shamen not being of much use without her. I may consider your suggestion of Sylvan Safekeeper, but it still feels kind of light to me (as well as being very vulnerable to any form of boardwipe). I don't think Veil of Summer is going to be quite the thing for me, especially with the pricetag attached to it, since the decks I play against within my playgroup differ wildly on colours. Are there any other suggestions you have as far as protection goes?
