king-saproling on cedh? Boros?!?

This is a cool idea. Thoughts on these? Cloudstone Curio , Thermopod , Priest of Urabrask , Ranger-Captain of Eos , Shield Sphere , Wyleth, Soul of Steel , Ronin Warclub , Mentor of the Meek , Akiri, Fearless Voyager , Tibalt's Trickery , Sunforger , Final Fortune , Angel's Grace , Tithe (finds Mistveil, and sunforger can play it), Burst of Energy . If you include those last 5 cards, you can set up an infinite turn combo starting with only a Sunforger.

Interesting build! +1

I had a build which was powered off of 0-mana Artifacts a long time ago, though it was a totally different mechanic to yours. Nevertheless I found I liked Shield Sphere since it can be more useful than the other creatures until which point you want to sacrifice it.

Goblin War Drums is a classic card that's been reprinted a few times and does fairly well with Mono-Red weenie-type or token-type decks in still allowing damage through. Not sure if 3 mana is too dear a cost to you, but I've seen it work in a number of goblin builds especially.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Erayo, Soratami Filibuster

Glacial Fortress and Temple of Enlightenment are a nice budget replacements for Evolving Wilds depending on whether you want speed or scrying. Cancel is not a good replacement for Counterspell (there really isn't one if you think about it) because there are plenty of counters with the same converted mana cost that does more, i.e. Faerie Trickery//Dissipate, Disallow, Dissolve, Hinder (personal favorite), etc.. If you're looking for 2 mana counters I'd suggest Negate/Psychic Barrier (simple and to the point), Rune Snag (better with time), Remand, or Familiar's Ruse/Deprive. As far as a replacement for Shield Sphere goes, there are cheap defenders out there. While not at the same cost Wall of Omens and Wall of Denial does a fantastic job of keeping attackers at bay, you could also double up on Fog Bank with it's slightly bigger cousin Guard Gomazoa. Lightmine Field/Archangel of Tithes/Ghostly Prison also does a pretty good job of keeping attackers at bay. Hope this helps.
