If you get a chance, I'd love your thoughts on Sideboarding Ponza for competitive(ish) meta?. And no worries at all if you can't get to it!

If you're looking at just one lifegain fattie in the side, I would go with Thragtusk over Obstinate Baloth, as it can trade with Tasigur and Angler in the Death's Shadow matchup. I have found Obstinate Baloth to be superior to Huntmaster of the Fells in the aggro matchup, so maybe curve out and go to 2 finks, 1 baloth, and 1 thragtusk?

I'll second keeping 3x Ancient Grudge or 2 grudges and 1 Shatterstorm for affinity and lantern.

For dredge, I haven't found anything better than scooze, as it hates the graveyard and blocks. Anger of the Gods is very good also, and if they're expecting it I've had Dredge players slow down to play around it.

I would like at least two Anger of the Gods in the side. Much better than Bonfires if you have it in opening hand game two against aggro.

I find the idea of Eidolon of the Great Revel very interesting, never thought of it before. I could see it being good against storm and deaths shadow, but not really sure if it is better in the slot than Trinisphere.

Disrupt Decorum seems like it was made for this deck

You may want to consider Faerie Artisans. I've had good results with her in my Yasova deck, it can give a continuous stream to tokens for sacrifice effects.

With all the card draw, maybe consider Laboratory Maniac as a safety/alternate wincon? Psychosis Crawler would be "fun" too.

Bovine073 learned my lesson last week, back to three Stone Rains main, one in board. Had a bad (2-2) FNM, too often looking at an uncastable five drop when I would rather have had a stone rain. Made the adjustment and swept a 22-person event.

If you're looking for mana denial and have the $$$, dropping Back to Basics after you've played enough mana rocks can slow things down a lot.

Cheaper way would be to combo Stasis with either Unwinding Clock or Paradox Engine and mana rocks.

Either way, you won't be making any friends at the table.

For naya burn, I'd suggest siding out the Chandra, Torch of Defiance for Obstinate Baloths. Good blocker + lifegain can be crucial.

mezz2296, the best Gideon is one you already own. That being said, I'm in agreement on Gideon of the Trials, as he curves nicely into Odric. Also a fan of Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip.
