Horizon Canopy Discussion

There are still several months remaining before the releases of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt and Innistrad: Crimson Vow, but I would like to begin speculating about them, now, to see what the users of this forum are seeking in those sets.
First and foremost, I very dearly wish to see a creature version of Exquisite Blood , since there have now been numerous creatures with the ability of Sanguine Bond , but none with the ability of Exquisite Blood , which is both ridiculous and illogical, because EB’s ability actually makes far more sense on a creature than does SB’s.
Second, I hope to see some excellent new angels and demons, since those are my two favorite types of creatures in this game.
Third, I am neutral toward werewolves, but I know that many players are fond of them, so I would like to see another legendary werewolf, since there currently is only one of those, and I know that players wish to have more options for a werewolf tribal EDH deck.
Fourth, on the subject of transforming cards, there have been a number of creatures with abilities that trigger when they transform, but there have been few, if any, cards with abilities that trigger when other permanents transform; for example, I would like to see permanents with effects such as "whenever a creature transforms, this permanent deals 2 damage to that creature's controller," "whenever a creature transforms, its controller draws a card," or "whenever a creature transforms, return target card from your graveyard to your hand," and so forth.
Fifth, I would like to see any of the following cycles of dual lands be completed: the "horizon lands" (i.e., Horizon Canopy , Silent Clearing , etc.), the "battle lands" (i.e., Canopy Vista , Cinder Glade , etc.), or Nimbus Maze (I know that that is only a single land, but it definitely deserves a full cycle).
Sixth, I feel that these sets would be great sets for reusing the unearth mechanic, since that has not been used in some time.
What does everyone else say about this? What would you like to see from the two upcoming Innistrad sets?

I recommend running
in the Sideboard, also
might be nice against burn: Gains 4 Life and blocks twice.
1-2 Horizon Lands might be nice: Horizon Canopy / Sunbaked Canyon , I'd cut basic lands for them.

Yavimaya seems a better fit for Titania Maverick. You get actual utility out of Yavimaya by turning Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin four colors and Horizon Canopy for pain free Horizon Canopy mana. Then you just Time the lands matter creatures.

Now that I’m thinking about it, I think that actually makes it cheaper to get Yavimaya and a bunch of basics rather than full play sets of Temple Garden , Sunpetal Grove , and other lands such as Horizon Canopy , and Wooded Bastion . I might squeeze one Arctic Treeline in place of a Branchloft Pathway Flip but pathway has been an absolute performer so far. In summary, it may actually be cheaper to go with Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth and trim other duals for basics. Especially once that initial price settles. Get in on it quick though, if you do.

Hi Mortlocke! Good to see you've added Carpet of Flowers , not that happy for Mystic Remora , which is a huge card. I was taking a look at your manabase, and I've noticed you're playing filter lands instead of pain lands. Why?
Filter lands are really suboptimal compared to pain lands: pain lands always give you a color if you need it at the cost of 1 life, which is nothing in EDH. Filter lands might add you colorless if you don't have the right land or mana producer. You can also think about horizon lands since those make you also draw, those are even better.
I've also noticed that you're missing Gemstone Caverns : this land is so good when it's in your starting hand, you can be 1 turn ahead of your opponents.
