Nethereon Deckling

I'm a 20 year veteran of the game, with one PT event under my belt, during the Urza's block. I like to consider myself a good steward of the game - a person who is always willing help, teach, and brainstorm with anyone - rather than some of the baser individuals in the community.

My favorite deck types are Pestilence, Mill and/or Discard, gimmicky combo decks to keep people off guard, Tron variations, Boros Aggro with a twist, and Auras.

Said on Samut's Manhunt...

#1

Cards to remove: Icy Manipulator, Zhalfirin Void, Baloth Gorger, Primordial Wurm, Llanowar Scout, Blessed Light, Tendershoot Dryad, Lightning Bolt, Splinter Twin, and Kavu Climber.

These cards are bad and make zero sense to add, especially a vanilla creature like Primordial Wurm.

There are far too few lands with too many high end creatures, along with very little ramp - hard ramp or soft ramp - along with very little removal for threats to your game plan. This deck needs Selesnya Signet and Gruul Signet. It also needs cards like Farseek and Kodama's Reach. You can also use Hour of Promise too. You should also find something like Blasphemous Act, Bonfire of the Damned, or maybe the new legendary out of Dominaria. At worst, it can burn all three of your opponents or the three biggest threats. Finally, Krosan Grip should be in just about every green deck, along with Decimate these are important because they fight through counters or remove multiple threats all at once.

As far as creatures, there are far superior choices to many of the cards here. Druid of the Anima is better than both Llanowars, any ramp spell is better, such as Burgeoning being better than scout, and will net you more land drops or better mana quality. If you can't afford a Birds of Paradise, consider Sylvan Caryatid. It does the same thing and is harder to remove.

Samut needs creatures that matter. Creatures that will impact the board in some meaningful way. I get this feeling that you're leaning too heavily on the power of Piper to cheat the big guys out there. I hate to say it but those types of creatures or effects, i.e. Quicksilver Amulet, draw a lot of hate very quickly.

Her untap ability works well with some of the exert creatures like Champion of Rhonas, and being able to attack multiple times in a turn is always a good thing. So look at Aurelia, the Warleader, Relentless Assault and World at War.

Finally, have any "I win" button. Sometimes large creature beats won't get the job done. I am not opposed to Infect as a last resort so look into Triumph of the Hordes and Grafted Exoskeleton. Actually, look into more equipment in general and Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is a great card in an aggro deck.

I hope these suggestions help and look forward to the second draft. Best regards.
