Hello, planeswalker!

1) Goblins
2) Academy
3) Dredge-a-Tog
4) Prosperous Bloom
5) Necro
6) Workshop/MUD
7) Ghost Husk
8) Ghazi Glare
9) Zombies

My favorite Magic cards are (in order):

1) Tolarian Academy
2) Psychatog
3) Goblin Lackey
4) Goblin Welder
5) Necropotence
6) Mind Over Matter
7) Sundering Titan
8) Braingeyser
9) Squandered Resources
10) Metalworker.

Here's a read that will change your life and the way you play games: Playing to Win by David Sirlin (one of the designers behind Street Fighter).

Also, be sure to check out my folders page for information regarding older decks. I've been working on creating an extensive archive of decks from various Pro Tour Top 8s and explanations for certain cards.

Where are your Oran-Rief, the Vastwoods? They're waaaay stronger than Llanowar Reborn. The only benefit to Llanowar Reborn is you can tap it for mana and give a creature a +1/+1 counter in the same turn. It also allows you to abuse the shit out of Kitchen Finks. Other than that, seems like you're losing a lot of potential by not having Oran-Rief, the Vastwood.

How is your matchup against Infect? Is Winding Constrictor a liability in that matchup?

@Lame_Duck: Yeah I think once I get Liliana, the Last Hope, Horizon Canopy, and Nahiri, the Harbinger in here, I'll have to consider Chromatic Lantern or Prismatic Omen. It would also allow me to play something like Blood Moon for even more obnoxiousness.

I'm really considering Prismatic Omen for the same reasons you recommended Chromatic Lantern, in addition to being able to board in a Scapeshift package out of the sideboard as an alternate win condition.

@Lame_Duck: This deck doesn't actually run into color problems very often, if ever. Basically, if you just name Utopia Sprawl for whatever color you have in your hand (white being the main one, for cards like Elspeth, Sun's Champion). Fertile Ground and Oath of Nissa cover the other costs.

The only hard planeswalkers to cast are ones with 2 non-green colors in their costs. Sorin, Grim Nemesis and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker being the main two.
