It's generally the artifacts removal i'm more interested in. But you are absolutely right, i'm not EXTREMELY sad to see him go, since he saves something else that gets bigger.

I have Shapers' Sanctuary and Lifecrafter's Bestiary that i want to try instead of Tezzeret's Gambit!

Drestlin - I was surprised you were gunning for Arcus Acolyte so strong! I mean Outlast is ok but I thought maybe you knew something I did not!

There is that legendary creature that lets each creature with a +1/+1 counter tap for land...he costs 3 CMC. Has potential...

On a side note, took out The Great Henge and Tezzeret's Gambit to try out Shapers' Sanctuary and for its cost it is decent. Pretty much nets me like 2-3 draws a game it is played.

Tezzeret's Gambit is just great, i'm alway happy to see it, always happy to pay 2 mana for those two cards, even if by some very very bad luck i don't have counters on anything. Just great all-around. Running 3 right now, i fear 2 might be too little to actually see it.

The Great Henge is an amazing card - it's also 20€ minimum per copy, definitely outside my price range, unfortunately...At that point there's so much stuff that's great, walking ballistas, great henge, esper sentinel, Sylvan Library, Shadowspear, Luxior, Giada's Gift and much more... :|

I know your pain! So many things to playtest and so little time! At it seems like a good card...

On a side note, I know you mentioned The Great Henge is out of your price range but I am running a single copy and have been able to play it every game I have had it and it is so good...I would not run more than 1 or 2 copies at most but it is a great card if you can get it out cheap. I mean it gives life, mana, +1/+1 counters, and draws! What more could I ask for!?!?!

Tezzeret's Gambit also seems to be a nice fit. How has it faired for you? 2 life and 3 CMC for two draws and a proliferate has been nice. I saw some cards that give draws for less CMC and similar life loss but I like the proliferate. I am only running a single copy of it currently but again think I will try to figure out how to get in another copy. At some point I will have to sit down and figure out what to keep and what to remove but I am enjoying the experimentation so far!

I feel the proliferate is not quite as good as actually putting a +1/+1 counter as you have to have one in place to actually get the effect. I like it on Grateful Apparition, Huatli's Raptor, and Tezzeret's Gambit as it is an extra bonus on top of another main ability.

You also got to remember I play MTGO and things are usually like 10-50x cheaper! Karn's Bastion is only 0.03 cents and Gavony Township is only 0.02 cents via CardHoarder :) Some things are still tough to get in MTGO though like Esper Sentinel :( Don't get me wrong, I feel like player in person would be much more fun as I play casually and love to chat and commentate on the games but MTGO allows me to play around my toddler-centered-lifestyle and for a small fraction of the price of building a collection in paper. Pros and Cons...

Chasmolinker the Panglacial Wurm seems great, since you don't even have to draw it, you'd need one or two at the most. i'll probably keep it in mind if i ever try to build this weird ramp counter deck we are discussing about now ahah

lhetrick13 what you found is what i suspected - unfortunately, cards should come next week so i won't be trying much apart from maybe very small changes - i don't want to print more proxies :D

i'll let you know as soon as i try out the new version.

or maybe i'll get around to print the few cards and will be able to try it tomorrow.

FYI, this is what i put together for next try:

Creatures - 4 Conclave Mentor - 3 Duskshell Crawler - 2 Hopeful Initiate - 2 Iron Apprentice - 2 Lion Sash - 2 Oran-Rief Ooze - 2 Savior of Ollenbock - 2 Scavenging Ooze - 4 Servant of the Scale - 3 Willow Geist

Lands - 4 Forest - 1 Karn's Bastion - 2 Llanowar Reborn - 3 Oran-Rief, the Vastwood - 3 Plains - 4 Razorverge Thicket - 2 Sunpetal Grove

//Enchants/Sorc/Instants - 2 Dromoka's Command - 3 Enter the Unknown - 4 Hardened Scales - 3 Swallow Whole - 3 Tezzeret's Gambit

//Sideboard - 2 Gaea's Blessing - 2 Gleeful Sabotage - 3 Mistcutter Hydra - 2 Predator Ooze - 4 Savage Summoning - 2 Wildwood Scourge

lmk if you have any comment on this one

Drestlin - Ya, I saw Tezzeret's Gambit this morning and immediately added it to my cart as that it the essence of what I need in my deck. Throw out some extra +1/+1's AND draw cards...perfection!

Let me know how Huatli's Raptor works for you. I do love how for only 2 mana you get a 2/3 creature and get to proliferate. Compare that to like Basri's Solidarity and it looks really good. I just wish you could activate it more than once but that would be asking a lot from a 2 CMC card that is also a creature with decent initial stats and vigilance.

You are not wrong about Evolution Sage. I feel like it would work in both our decks but you would not be maximizing its ability. We are both running 3xEnter the Unknown but I feel like I would want to get some copies of Ordeal of Nylea to get some additional ramping in the deck and built it more around Evolution Sage to really make her worth adding. Lately I feel like I am drawing >50% of my lands each game so it seemed like a great ideal at the time!

lhetrick13 Tezzeret's Gambit is a sweet find - i have already ordered a set of huatli's (i'm waiting to try them out). Evolution Sage i think would work better on another deck, something with more ramp maybe. Tho, maybe would work if i actually drew more than one card per turn (games tend to be over by the time you put him down and play maybe 2 other lands...but maybe not. will have to check it out).

Thank you!

Over reddit, they suggested the combo Devoted Druid Vizier of Remedies for mana generation - might be something worth checking out.
