Choose a creature type. Creatures that aren't of the chosen type get -3/-3 until end of turn.

A Skeleton deck! Yes!

My first thought here is about the Skeletal Wurms. Since you don't have much ramp, I would drop them for some more options, maybe Bad Moon or Realmwalker if you have the deck budget for that. Crippling Fear works as a board wipe.

If you're willing to put more money into this, I can put a few more suggestions out, but I don't want to start recommending cards worth as much as the rest of the deck combined.

I really appreciate all of you for taking the time to analyze my deck and offer me help and insight. It has all been tremendously helpful. It still needs a lot of work and tweaking, but it's running pretty smooth now. Thank you!

Omniscience_is_life Thanks for the suggestion, I think you may be right. I'm still looking into options at the moment and weighing them out.

TheoryCrafter Thank you so much for the tips! I put in Font of Agonies! I didn't know Witch's Cottage counted as a swamp! I really appreciate the help!

RNR_Gaming Thanks for the suggestion, I'm still considering if I'm gonna add them. Divining Top is pretty OP.

bushido_man96 I'm still tweaking the card draw and mulling over my options. The cut suggestions were exactly what I needed to hear. Thanks for all the insight!

Necrosis24 I'm still working out the card draw mechanics in my deck at the moment, but I appreciate your comments on the board wipes. It definitely needed trimming. I added Crippling Fear as well!

LittleMy Thank you so much for your well thought out responce and really looking into my deck. I think you are right about the on demand card draw. I'm still weighing options so I haven't made any changes yet. I added in Castle Locthwain. I will also give more consideration to your ramp considerations as well. I subbed in Veinwitch Coven for Adaptive Automaton. Veinwitch Coven will definitly give me more value for the recursion. Also I already had Champion of Dusk on my Moxifield deckbuilder before I updated this list. I may need to pare down the amount of tutors in my deck, although I do have a two card infinite combo in my deck as a win condition. Exquisite Blood sets off a chain with my commander Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose or Sanguine Bond. I totally spaced out and didn't realise I didn't have many instant speed removal, that is indeed very key. Thanks for the Arcane Signet suggestion I didn't realise it was absolutley better than Charcoal Diamond. I was previously thinking about Door of Destinies I wasn't completley confident with putting it in at the time, I'll forsure give it more consideration. When it comes to Coat of Arms there always seems to be other tribal decks in the meta everywhere I go and I don't want to be supplying an anthem to other players since it doesn't just affect me. All of your insight was indespensible and I really welcome all the help! Thank you!

Necrologia is a fun card for life gain decks, it allows you to dig deep for a combo piece or key removal if needed. Best paired with recursion since it draws at your endstep, otherwise Thought Vessel or Library of Leng can mitigate the downside of discarding to 7.

Five boardwipes seems a bit much but I guess it is meta specific so whatever fits your meta is best at the end of the day. Crippling Fear is solid, won't kill big threats but shuts down a lot of tokens or can potentially save you from a Pathbreaker Ibex swing out.

Whip of Erebos for extra life gain and it's activated ability helps quite a bit when you least expect it to.

Thanks for the link Sorin_Markov_1947!!

Taking a look at it and seems that removal is the way to go to help against mono-green.

Infernal Grasp, Bloodchief's Thirst and Necrotic Fumes will be effective against all the big creatures in the deck. The addition of Containment Breach as per your recommendation should help against Ranger Class and more importantly Unnatural Growth. Outland Liberator  Flip would also be good for artifact / enchantment removal and is a werewolf too. I added a few deathtouch cards to the maybe board that could also be effective and work as “removal”: Infuse with Vitality and Bladebrand.

Re: Mono-white - Crippling Fear in the sideboard may come in handy to wipe out those pesky wennies.

Love me some Minotaurs.

Crippling Fear is a really good budget choice for a one-sided board wipe, especially considering that not a lot of people actually play Minotaurs, so you don't have to worry about it becoming a dud during a mirror match.

Minor Sideboard update: Engineered Explosives is back in (use Ratchet Bomb if your budget's tight) due to the influx of The Underworld Cookbook food spam decks.

swapped 1 Dragon's Claw for a Crippling Fear just to have a one-sided boardwipe. I really want 2 claws but I already have Collective Brutality for burn as well, so 3 slots devoted to a matchup that used to be a nightmare but is more manageable with Aetherborn and Sorin. Hitting with a flying+lifelink 7/6 Nocturnus on turn 4 is not uncommon here. I cut Ashiok because I was already running 4 spellbombs for my graveyard hate. If I don't keep Crippling Fear, either I'd toss in a third Abrade or possibly a Kolaghan's Command or Dreadbore given the larger role of walkers in current modern. Or even my old favorite, Rakdos Charm. That card is incredible.
