Congregation at Dawn Discussion

KyleWynne22 if that's the case, you could probably get away just fine with cutting the Survival of the Fittest for Sylvan Library. Of the others you mentioned, the only one of them that I'd say is most needed is the Serra's Sanctum, but then again it's price alone is more than the other three combined. Wheel of Sun and Moon is super nice, but something like Library of Leng is a really budget substitute; only real reason we run Wheel over it is because Wheel is an enchantment. Greater Auramancy just provides additional redundancy that Sterling Grove provides, and you're probably fine with most cards in the maybeboard as a substitute. Deserted Temple you could probably just throw in another basic land. Really it's only purpose is to untap Serra's Sanctum and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

What's the point of Congregation at Dawn?
Also, do you draw enough cards? You could consider Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion, and Thrill of Possibility to get rid of your creatures that shuffle back into the library. Valakut Awakening Flip is also good and versatile. Hunter's Insight, Return of the Wildspeaker and Soul's Majesty let you draw tons of cards once your biggies are out. Idol of Oblivion let's you draw a card each turn you've created an egg. Kazuul's Fury Flip can be great when you have to sacrifice the creature due to Sneak Attack anyway.

I would suggest running some miracle cards like Terminus and Entreat the Angels as well as some more creatures to flicker like Charming Prince (it can also scry) or Skyclave Apparition (it is also a spirit for Essence Flux). You might also want a backup way to cheat out Emrakul but I don't know what the best option would be. Because you are already running blink cards you might want to consider Solitude. I am reluctant to recommend Congregation at Dawn because it is so slow but that could be another option. All in all I really like the deck!!!

Hey, you're welcome.
If you're trying to win with a combo then having instant protection for the combo is important. Heroic Intervention and Boros Charm can protect all cards in the combo from most removal. Intervention is much more expensive price, but hexproof is even more protection. It was just reprinted in one of the new AtFR Commander precons thus it's price will most likely keep going down.
Congregation at Dawn is powerful with Eggs especially since it's an instant. Before you sac Eggs tutor for any three Dragons and put them on top of your library in any order. Old Gnawbone now makes Dawn even better since you can get Gnawbone + Hellkite Charger + any other creature. Having a creature haste enabler such as Samut, Voice of Dissent who can be cheated onto the battlefield can be helpful.
Currently you don't have any card recursion, Eternal Witness is a creature who can recur any card. Moon-Blessed Cleric is worth including because it's a creature who can tutor for Aggravated Assault or any other enchantment.
Some changes to consider:

I found having too many cats wasn't very useful, I went a bit extreme, down to 14 cats, but 28 is a lot. Arahbo, Roar of the World only Eminence triggers one cat, and unless you're in a state with a ton of mana to activate the ability for multiple cats, not really needed.
How I solved this problem, was more creature tutor cards (instead of more cats), so Sylvan Tutor , Time of Need , I got a Survival of the Fittest for xmas one year which was cool. Chord of Calling , Eldritch Evolution even Congregation at Dawn are all viable to. The right cat at the right time vs. drawing more cats. Initiate's Companion , Leonin Skyhunter , Steppe Lynx feel like some easy cuts.
Are you primarily trying to kill everyone with combat damage? Beastmaster Ascension maybe?
Fumigate seems wrong.
Might reduce in lands, do you find yourself flooded, eliminate anything that comes into play tapped with no strong ability. Your not running toward a Tooth and Nail or anything so likely can miss a T4-6 land drop and still be in good shape, can also Land Tax or Archaeomancer's Map or Kodama's Reach to get more lands in hand. Evolving Wilds , Krosan Verge , Path of Ancestry could be some easy. If you're worried about mana fixing, fetch lands are great Windswept Heath but also the off-color ones like Wooded Foothills , Flooded Strand , etc.
Teferi's Protection to dodge board wipes?
I might add an alt win-con, Triumph of the Hordes might be one, but having a backup plan, maybe Grafted Exoskeleton or perhaps Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants to bring back Lost Leonin . Bala Ged Recovery Flip for Triumph of the Hordes , I dunno something?
Hope you find something useful here. +1

Hey! I have some suggestions, hope they'll help:
Is there a specific reason to play Edge of Autumn ? Is it better than an unconditional ramp inside this deck?
The lands you're running generates only one (of zero) colors. Maybe you should include one or two lands that generates two (maybe three) different colors. You even can tutor them if needed with Golos.
Golos's ability is very powerful and maybe you should take more advantage from it. Top-manipulation spells (e.g. Tutors, Congregation at Dawn ) and untappers (e.g. Peregrine Drake , Rude Awakening ) may work very well here.
I guess that some gods you're running aren't that good. An example is Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded . You're running few red and artifact creatures, so Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded isn't seems to be that powerful.

Hi! Thanks for the upvote.
A few suggestions:
Overwhelming Stampede rather than Overcome ; Sure your deck has many weenies, but by the time you're gonna want a 5 cmc mass trample for the win, you'll probably have something with larger than 2 power out.
Rule of Law is great for multiplayer, but Curse of Exhaustion might fit if you're gearing the deck for 1v1. If you are going for multiplayer, then Kismet works great at slowing opponents down without impacting yourself.
With the amount of PWs in the deck, Ignite the Beacon and Oath of Ajani might be worthwhile.
Phyrexian Rebirth could be a good board wipe, especially if you have crazy token amounts. Especially funny if you can combo it with Fresh Meat . Also funny with Requiem Angel out - a card worth including on its own, especially if you end up juggling your own tokens for other things.
Hardened Scales , Gavony Township , and Bloodspore Thrinax , could play nice with the +1/+1 subtheme.
Ashnod's Altar is great for utilizing creature tokens to get more things out.
Tireless Tracker might help with card draw later and gets some counters on its own.
The deck comp is pretty balanced, so Traverse the Ulvenwald might be effective. Congregation at Dawn and Chord of Calling are other tutor options if you find that the deck is more successful with particular creatures out.
I love swapping weaker tokens with Emrakul's Evangel (another fun fresh meat combo play). Of course, there is always Divine Visitation as well. It's easy to go overboard on doublers, but I figured I'd give a shout out to Primal Vigor and Second Harvest .
Swords to Plowshares for Pacifism ; might be better in some scenarios and always allows you to target your own creature to get some life out of it if you need to or if you go for the lifegain route.
Speaking of the lifegain route, if you want to go for it, here's some things that could work well: Phantom Nishoba , Wall of Reverence , Cradle of Vitality , Fumigate , Congregate , Blighted Steppe , Blossoming Sands , Gingerbread Cabin , Radiant Fountain , Graypelt Refuge , Kabira Crossroads , High Market , and Phyrexian Processor . The land balance will need to be played with if you want to swap the basics for some of those. Also, most Ajani PWs will work well for a more lifegain focused deck.
Now, when I think token generation, I think artifacts for many things. Thopter Assembly , Genesis Chamber , and Summoning Station come to mind. If you end up with more artifact tokens, you can use them with things like Krark-Clan Ironworks and Kuldotha Forgemaster . Also help with things like Dispatch .
Annnnnd one more suggestion if I haven't overstayed my welcome. Funny things can happen in token decks that put out a lot of creatures when you play The Great Aurora . Usually gives you a much stronger board state than opponents - might want to have a safety Reliquary Tower in for that hand size though!
Sorry if I doubled up on anything you had already considered!
