Said on Abzan Adventure...

Prison Realm is pretty flexible and answers the two biggest threats planeswalkers and creatures so you could probably run 4 mainboard without much downside. There isn't much enchantment removal mainboard atm. At least not in any common decks that I can think of other than Doom Foretold decks. Like I said I'd probably drop Assassin's Trophy and go for the extra Prism Realm, Legion's End , Find / Finality , or a Gideon. Then drop two Order of Midnight for a Rankle and Questing Beast at some point. Questing Beast especially tends to get a lot of value from my experience. It can immediately attack, evade, trade, kill a planeswalker, block, etc. Though it will be much stronger once Oko gets banned and Wicked Wolf is on a decline.

The rest kinda depends on your local meta. If mardu knights becomes a consistent problem for you, consider cheap answers like Glass Casket , Sorcerous Spyglass (can stop embercleave, planeswalkers, etc.) in the sideboard. Personally I struggle more with G/X decks (especially G/R aggro) and my sideboard focuses on that since green is so strong atm.

The deck looks good and similar to something I'm working on as well. I think Oko will probably be banned November 18th and that some form of G/B/X or G/W deck will take top spot. So I like the direction you're going in and I think your deck will be positioned well if Oko does get banned.

A few suggestions though: I would drop Assassin's Trophy. A lot of decks are midranged and giving them a land really hurts in this meta. I would also drop Order of Midnight down to 2 (the circumstances it has value are narrow). I would up questing beast and rankle to 3x.

I like your sideboard but again would probably drop Assassin's Trophy (for one thing you can bet they will put their own veils in so its even weaker sideboard than main). You could consider 1x Unbreakable Formation in the sideboard. Gideon Blackblade feels pretty strong and underrated atm so nice include there.

All in all I like your deck better than most meta G/B Adventure lists, but I'm not convinced it's better than the meta Selesnya list. (such as this one https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/2396644#paper) Selesnya lists have access to March of the Multitudes (which feels great atm cause less control magic being played...though Teferi is on the decline so that may change). Also Conclave Tribunal and Venerated Loxodon almost always feel good to play. While those cards feel great atm, some of the other cards in the list feel kinda meh which is why I'm not sold on Selesnya either. Flaxen Intruder , Shepherd of the Flock , and even Faerie Guidemother can feel underwhelming sometimes. Anyways those are the reasons I'm not sold on Selesnya either atm and feel that the answer may lie somewhere between G/B and G/W adventures which is why I like the direction your going with your deck :)
