Fecundity

Enchantment

Whenever a creature is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, that creature's controller may draw a card.

This deck won 1 of 2 games last night in four-player free-for-all against mono-blue control, mono-white angels, and mono-green elv-inosaurs. The first match this deck was dominating, but ultimately got shut down by mono-blue control with help from mono-white's Angel of Jubilation. Mono-green elv-inosaurs were left unchecked and got the win. Second game, mono-blue control shut down mono-green elv-inosaurs, and mono-white angels came out much stronger, but without blue shutting us down, the combination of Fecundity and graveyard recurrence overwhelmed the board. Each match took about an hour, and both games were back and forth battles between all the decks. Great night of magic.

I was thinking of Viscera Seer as a free sac outlet to trigger Fecundity once it's out. I agree Commune with the Gods is the better option for finding it. I'd try Viscera Seer in place of Ayara, First of Locthwain or Fiend Artisan. Since the sacfirice from Viscera Seer doesn't require tapping you can play and sac the creatures you draw off of the Fecundity triggers and keep the engine going.

Targeted removal is a good thing. But I wouldn't run Return to Dust either. At 4 mana, you just as well go with a boardwipe. And being able to double it up by casting it as a sorcery is not a good trade off. Swords to Plowshares is a much better option. Beast Within and Lignify are good ways to isolate threatening creatures.

Fecundity can benefit your opponents, yes. But thought here is that if you have a deck that is focused on killing creatures for advantage, then you will probably benefit more than your opponents. I honestly think there are players that worry too much about other players benefiting from some of your own plays. Its an interactive game, and it makes it fun. Cards like that can help you gain some allies at the table at times. It's strictly your call, but I personally play the card and enjoy it.

I would say that you could probably look at cutting your planeswalkers for some things that will actually help your deck do what it wants to do. Yes, planeswalkers are cool, and the ones you are running do some generally good things, but I don't think they lend to your deck's focus. You can't hunt them out with Atla, and none of them produce anything that Atla can use.

Glancing over the list, it looks like you have a lot of precon hangover, with lots of creatures that make tokens when they come into play. You have several cards that populate, too. Those play more into Ghired's ability than Atla's. If you want to focus on Atla, then you want to go in on making Egg tokens, as opposed to any of the others. That's where some changelings can come in handy.

Thanks! I will likely take out Slice in Twain for Return to Dust once I go threw my box of whites. Pretty sure I have another one somewhere. I left it in for now since it at least comes with a draw. Not so sure about Fecundity. Isn't that a bit of a double edged sword? I don't feel like helping others draw into an out for me. Also I just realized something yesterday during a match. I have very little to out powerful creature's with powerful ability's. I just got completely shut down by Stormtide Leviathan. Might need some more targeted destruction in here

Slice in Twain could be replaced with any number of better removal spells that are cheaper to cast. Like Wilt. Instead of Greater Good, you could run something like Fanatical Devotion or Martyr's Cause, which can double up in protecting a creature on your board, like your commander. You can even sneak a sac outlet into the mana base with a card like High Market. Goblin Bombardment is good, too. Demonmail Hauberk is sneaky useful here too. If you are sacrificing creatures a lot, Fecundity can draw you a ton of cards.

It seems to me that you could use some more eggs in this deck. Changlings are a good way to fill that void, and having more eggs will speed things up and fill your board up faster.

Thanks so much for the +1 and thoughtful comment, Squee_Spirit_Guide. I did consider Viscera Seer but went with Commune with the Gods instead. I don't love Commune, as often it dumps land or creatures that can't return themselves to the battlefield into my graveyard, but it seems necessary to have some lower MV spell to help get Fecundity in my hand. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on which is better or what other spells I might cut to make room for the Seer.
