Bluefire016, honestly it's a pretty hard matchup if they get the god draw of Simian Spirit Guide into their combo there isn't much you can do. I think at the end of the day it's like something on the lines of 50/50. Here's what I've learned from playing that matchup.

  • Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip on the draw feels bad

  • you're at a huge disadvantage if you're on the draw (they might combo out before you have a chance to disrupt)

  • sometimes Anger of the Gods isn't fast enough

  • I've added more Collective Brutality in the sideboard and hopefully it'll do the job

  • because of the small amount of creatures to block with until you get zombies, it'll be hard to remove half of the creatures because of Boros Charm and Atarka's Command. If you don't respond, they just swing in for free damage, if you respond, then they'll do something.

  • sometimes a yolo Burning Inquiry and Waste Not on turn 3 is enough to turn the tables as the majority of the time it gets creatures, which you can block with. This is where the tables turn and you can stall enough and win.

  • since Dryad Arbor is both a creature and a land, you get double value

  • from mainboard, I boarded out Notion Thief, Drake Haven, Negate, and I guess Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip (didn't have enough sideboard so I had to keep them in). Boarding in probably goes Anger of the Gods, Collective Brutality, Dispel, and Engineered Explosives.

  • Since I don't have all the sideboard, it's hard to tell how it'll really do. Also since I just changed it up with the Thought Scour, I'm not too sure how it'll affect the deck's flow. We'll see soon I guess. :)

Thank you Bluefire016, I super glad that you want to build this deck. IMO it is a ton of fun to play, and I guess the only downside is that I don't know how well it does against other tier 1 & 2 decks. I only can play against what my playgroup has, which is just infect and bushwacker zoo. If you do take it to your local FNM, let me know how it does because honestly I'm not sure what the sideboard should consist of. As of now, it's just a standard grixis control sideboard, but I guess it should be ok.

Anyways go wreck em with some RNG! :D
