Throne of the God-Pharaoh for Nissa of Shadowed Boughs

Trying this Nissa out, it can get any of my combo creatures from hand or grave and can ramp a bit.

Wickerbough Elder for Assassin's Trophy

More efficient and cheap removal, Elder is too clunky

Swiftfoot Boots for Veil of Summer

Better overall card and protection

Cauldron of Souls for Phyrexian Reclamation

Cheaper cost for similar effect, I like the Cauldron with a sac outlet but i'm really trying to lower my curve!

What do you think of those changes!?

I like it! Here are some tidbits.

Well, I guess the determining of it is indeed not part of state-based anything.. state-based actions have little to do with the point I was trying to make which is just that Fiend Artisan's base power and toughness is 1/1, but he gets a P/T buff as a static effect versus a CDA defining his literal base P/T or P/T in any other zone. State-based actions are just checks performed and are irrelevant to what I meant to say, but..

I actually reread your comment and see now what you said in the last two sentences as well. So you already made that point, lol. Yeah, static buffs are for all intents and purposes going to be the same as CDAs when checked during state-based actions. I was wrong in how I mentioned it first. Sorry, carry on! lol

Maybe adding Fiend Artisan might help. since you are running a few 1 and 2 ofs, it will help you get them on the board and sacking a Gravecrawler is fine in this deck (i've been running b/w zombies a while and am currently trying to go esper since i pulled The Scarab God in 2x masters).

If you play Fiend Artisan while Terror of the Peaks is out, it will deal 1 damage if you have no creature cards in your graveyard.

If you do have creatures in your grave though, Fiend Artisan would ETB with X +1/+1 counters, making its power X+1, making your damage X+1.

also, Fiend Artisan's power doesn't "change" when its summoned. it enters with its power already boosted from the start.
