I brew a lot of decks, some competitive, most just for fun because I don't have the money to buy the cards for real. Working on getting up a nice collection of cards. :)

I love to help with suggestions and I love to hear them, too, so leave me comments or requests! I'd be happy to take a look at a deck you want help with-- just leave the link on my wall and any questions you have.

Happy brewing!

I'm running a similar deck on MTGA and I have a few suggestions:

1) I fully agree with above that you should either add 1-2 Brazen Borrower or 1-2 Heartfire Immolator as additional threats. I actually run 2 of both, for a total of 16 threats. I don't know if you've been running hands, but you'll find that you really need a threat in the opener, and at 12 threats you'll have to mulligan often to find one, which hurts your spell density. However, I waffle on Immolator since it doesn't fly.

2) Stern Dismissal should be Unsummon. Again, you're threat-light and this is not a true burn deck, so the option to save your creature and blank removal is more important than bouncing enchantments. I can't think of a deck that really utilizes any Banishing Light type effects and, in that scenario, Unsummoning your own creature can work just as well.

3) You should probably have 4 Spikefield Hazard  Flip. It's a great spell against Kroxa and Lurrus decks, which are probably the most popular decks in the meta ATM. It's also very good against Rogues. Being a MDFC really lowers your opportunity cost, especially since the deck doesn't really need turn 1 open mana.

4) I see no reason not to run 4 Shatterskull Smashing  Flip. I won't lie that it's an underwhelming removal spell, but being any spell to trigger Riddleform is super important. You have to be the faster deck anyway, and I often can play it tapped since the deck is low on curve.

I also prefer a build with 2x Silundi Vision  Flip and 3x Blitz of the Thunder-Raptor over Anticipate and some Crash Through. I really think Anticipate is too slow here. But that's probably up for debate!

It may help to space these all out for easier viewing. You have to double-space after every paragraph break.

Also, if you need to get your dog care ASAP, you might look into a CareCredit card. Your vet should have info on it. It'll let you pay in installments with no interest for a certain period of time - of course it's pretty predatory after that, but if you need a few months to put together the money, that'll help. It's what I did when my kitten got a rare illness that required hospitalization.

Good luck to you and your doggo!

Thirdtrader Thanks for the suggestions! Ilysian Caryatid is a great include; totally missed that. I'm not 100% the list needs another infinite mana win combo, but I do like Walking Ballista for flexibility, so I'll try it out!

Inkmoth ha, true! Yeah, I think they're just a bit slow and clunky compared to the other 2+ mana dorks, but they're definitely a good consideration for additional redundancy. I just don't know if the deck needs it for that part of the combo. But I haven't really done any testing yet!

Inkmoth ha no problem! I was excited to be able to click it. Looks like a super fun build.
