Slippery Bogle Discussion
1 month ago
I will absolutely play around with adding Bruna, Light of Alabaster . Thanks for pointing her out. Slippery Bogle is a classic in the aura/hexproof realm; however I'm really not sure what I would drop for him, will keep him in mind though.

Bruna, Light of Alabaster for a big finish?
Slippery Bogle for some "Cant touch this"?

zapyourtumor, I'm still working the "sexproof" angle I just thought maybe I could be faster with Sythis, I'm trying to decide how to move forward. I feel like if I stay with Sythis, I would have to add back into the deck a handful more of the cheap hexproof creatures to ensure I would pull at least on in my opening hand. I've got Witchstalker , Troll Ascetic , Bassara Tower Archer , Slippery Bogle , Heroic Intervention , Alpha Authority sitting here staring at me. What to do, what to doooo?

Looks like a fun start! Reminds me of a Slippery Bogle or Gladecover Scout deck! Could be worth exploring, even if it's a few copies in the sideboard for more controlly matchups. Young Wolf could be another option if you're running into a lot of removal.
In terms of sideboard, it depends on what you find yourself up against Natural State can be really good against a mirror match and Affinity. Epic Confrontation and Cartouche of Strength for more targeting, as it also buffs your creature. Battlefield Scrounger is another overlooked finisher, as you can "recycle" your used spells if the game goes on for longer. Fists of Ironwood should also give you more resilience against sacrifice effects!

Cards in the side that I think could work in the main are Dungrove Elder , Ambuscade , Rancor , Shield of the Oversoul , and maybe Ironscale Hydra . Cards that fit the general idea of the sideboard include Kogla, the Titan Ape , Mold Shambler , Reclamation Sage , and Yasharn, Implacable Earth . Other common SB options in these colors could be Stony Silence , Rest in Peace , Leyline of Sanctity , Selfless Spirit , Kor Firewalker , Rule of Law , Force of Vigor , Qasali Pridemage , and Scavenging Ooze .
At this point, this deck is far enough removed from the deathtouch lure plan that I think it could be worth swapping out those cards to go all-in on bogles or aura/hexproof instead. Cards like Slippery Bogle and Silhana Ledgewalker tend to pair well with aura buffs like Spirit Mantle and Ethereal Armor .

MagicMarc Lot of suggestions there! I'll try the full Slippery Bogle --> Paradise Druid switch, but I'm a little concerned about the progression of the first couple turns. Adding more Sylvan Caryatid s was on my list, but I'll need to get more copies. Muddle the Mixture is good, I can get that done. I'll try out Fierce Empath and Reason / Believe ; I had Reason / Believe in for a while, and it worked well.
Thanks for the thoughts!

I like your deck. Looks like it would be a lot of fun for casual games. I also have some suggestions:
I would replace all the copies of
. You get hexproof and can tap for colored mana. Which helps address your mana issues you mention in the description. And up the count of your
I would also consider replacing the 3 copies of Turn Aside with Muddle the Mixture . It counters instant and sorceries which would be the primary targets for Turn Aside anyways. Then it can also transmute for Spy Kit , Cream of the Crop , Sylvan Caryatid and Paradise Druid . (If you added it).
I would also suggest getting 2 or more copies of Fierce Empath which would let you tutor your giant monsters.
Then once you get them in hand you can use Retraced Image of course. Or put them on top of your library with Brainstorm for Mitotic Manipulation .
I would also suggest a mana rock if you continue to have mana problems whether or not you add Paradise Druid . Something like Simic Keyrune would be good since it can also transform into a hexproof creature for your combo.
I like Reason / Believe in your maybeboard too. Scrys and it can also put them into play with the Aftermath side. Synergizes nicely with the deck though not sure where you would cut until you even out your other issues.

Make a test taking off Barkhide Troll and Boggart Ram-Gang and putting 4 Slippery Bogle. Your spells are very low cost, so I don't see how Llanowar Elves are needed, try to get off them and use 4 Bassara Tower Archer, it seems she works a lot better than the troll, due she's constant hexproof and keeping good your green devotion. Witchstalker is a good option for sideboard, try to use 4 Silhana Ledgewalker, she's fasten and much more hard to be blocked. Vines of Vastwood are very good, try to use 4 of it, it suits well in any situation.
