Wild Growth: We want nearly all the 1-mana accelerants, and the next best dork is Boreal Druid. It helps play around Blood Moon/Contamination, gives bonus synergy to Arbor Elf, and is often net 0 to play.

I speak on it not having played it outside goldfishes, but having played against it (or a close variant) both in my paper group and online with some frequency. I am inclined to think that it is rather inconsistent, capable of early godhands with more frequency than most decks, and is overall fragile and non-interactive relative to the rest of the cream-of-the-crop. Not peronally my cup of tea, but certainly strong and viable. I think the meta will grow in resilience to the current popularity of Hulk. I'm not much for "top 5" lists, but I don't think it makes mine if I was.

I don't think FCT needs to make speed concessions to any other deck.
Containment Priest happens to put in a lot of work in some of the paper metas I play in where Hulk/Druid/reanimator is the flavor of the month, and it also happens to work well against Blood Pod and Yisan, which have strong disruption potential against us. I leave it in the general build because of how widely played Hulk happens to be right now while not slowing us down significantly -- it's quite lean for a persistent effect, and flash gives it the blowout potential of a counterspell and makes it very easy to play.
Worldly Tutor is just slow, clunky, narrow, and awful. I don't think the full-power build should play it anymore.
Negate rotates in and out as a flex slot between Gilded Drake and Into the Roil. Gilded Drake happens to be a very efficient way to steal Zur (swinging for FC) and large reanimator threats. You can play whichever one best suits your meta (Negate vs. fast combo; Into the Roil vs. stax; Gilded Drake vs. midrange).

Hipparchos LabMan, Culling the Weak, Containment Priest (if you're facing Hulk) are the big changes. Sylvan Library and Mana Crypt would be the first cards I bought for the 420 build and I'd focus on improving the manabase after that.

Hipparchos It's the backup plan if Food Chain or all the Allies/Sweeper are exiled. It's also for winning through a board too staxed up with multiple Sphere or Rule of Law or enchantment removal: play LabMan, Consultation/Pact to exile Library end-of-turn/upkeep, win on draw step.
