The Birth of Meletis Discussion

Maybe a bit more Scry/Surveil/Draw to speed up the process of finding your second Approach? Also maybe a bit ramp, e.g. The Birth of Meletis?

Minousmancer the suggestions I gave earlier are standard rotation survivable, but here are some other suggestions.
Castle Ardenvale for making tokens. A little slow, but doesn't take up a spell slot.
Improbable Alliance is an ok card. If you have lots of card draw, you get lots of tokens.
The Birth of Meletis is too good to pass up.
Stolen by the Fae is an option.
Basri Ket is one to think about.
mjgilbert26 The token producers you recommended are ok, but are a bit too high mana. You want to be able to cast Transmogrify on turn four. Also, creatures that create tokens are unusable, as the only creature in the deck should be Terror of the Peaks so you have a 100% chance of hitting it.

Post rotation I'll add more removal, and a different curve through the low end. I might plan to ramp to 4 with The Birth of Meletis, which should fit my plans. On the way up, I can lay down the griffin generator, Griffin Aerie. At four there's that ridiculous life gain pegasus engine...Archon of Sun's Grace. I can try to hang on to the board a little on the way up by sipping a revitalize and maybe upping that one-drop 3-mode spell, Light of Hope. We'll see I guess!

I hadn’t actually thought of The Birth of Meletis that’s a really good idea. Question though involving Slaying Fire are their any other instant spells out there that do what Chandra's Outrage does but for a cheaper cmc? For the moment, at least until I can get my hands on more wild cards chandras outrage is kinda all I have of it’s kind. Ideally I’d kill a creature or better yet exile it, then deal damage with the same card

If you struggle with life-gain mostly for dealing with aggro decks, you should try The Birth of Meletis, it doesn't look like much but it's an incredibly useful card that actually sees a lot of play, and for good reasons. It would allow you to play more untapped lands as well as drawing your more lands, should be very beneficial.

Nice brew! You may have thought of these, but I'll throw them out there in case you haven't.

Pretty cool idea! Shame you can't get Setessan Champion in with the Umori clause, I always hated that she's not an enchantment creature!
Also not sure if Omen of the Hunt is necessary/good; seems like you'll be tapping out most of the time to deal with opponent's threats on T3. Could be two more The Birth of Meletis to help against aggro, and maybe there are your two slots for Callaphe instead of Alseid.
Do love the idea so hope you find success with it!

I love players like you lot who plays heavily abroad the meta :D I am playing Azorius-Walls a while now and I cannot recommend The Birth of Meletis enough for this theme. Getting a fix to your maybe-damage Starthand, a 0/4 Wall and a bit life for sustenance for 2 mana and a bit time? Yes please! Also, while no wall, I am running 3-4 copies of Deputy of Detention for some protection against these pesky Superfriends, Monored and many swarmdecks.
