Toski, Bearer of Secrets Discussion

Garruk's Uprising and/or Elemental Bond would be a fine and fitting addition, but i guess both (or especially the later) don't fit the budget theme. Fun Fact: In Europe you get both for 1,50 EUR total. The price-stretch between US and EU-prices are huge. Rancor would be awesome if you can grab a cheap version!
Search for Tomorrow could have a home here, too :)
Anyway, I like the straightforwardness of the deck. I'll give it a try for sure :)

Would recommend Toski, Bearer of Secrets as an indestructible draw engine.
Asceticism for great protection and the ability to regenerate.

Old Gnawbone is weird for green too. Treasure is the anti-green ramp.
Or how about Honor Troll as a lifegain payoff for green. That's kinda new.
We're not on the cusp of anything, green has been evolving and adapting the strengths of other colors for quite a while now.

Duplicates removed - Monir's additions
Gaea's Will – do we have cascade or ways to make this free?
Sanctum Weaver – do we have enchantment support?
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds – older card, have we ever talked about it?

Hmmmm. Ok, i’ve got a couple suggestions, but feel free to let me know if i’m off base on any of them:
Genesis Wave seems lackluster; you spend a lot of mana to get a bunch of permanents but none of them count towards your storm count. Could be dropped for Noxious Revival for additional graveyard recurral and hate in one piece. Slap a Geier Reach Sanitarium in place of a forest and you have all the pieces for an alternative win con, in the mill line that’s used in Yeva Draw-Grow. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea is an option as well, but you need a discard outlet to not deck yourself too, if i’m not mistaken.
Genesis Hydra is cool to dig for a combo piece if you have infinite mana, but it seems like if you have infinite mana you may as well produce infinite storm, drop Aeve, and win. I think Altar of Dementia is a good win con in this deck for that reason.
Only other thing i can think of, is that some of your draw is either slow, or over costed, and could possibly be replaced with more abusable options. Toski, Bearer of Secrets , Rishkar's Expertise , and Elemental Bond are the main ones i’m referring to. If you have infinite storm Bond is gonna deck you when/if you cast Aeve and not be useful anymore. Rishkar would have a similar effect if Aeve is too big and then is dead in hand. Unfortunately I can’t think of good replacements right this second, but will come back and let you know when/if i do. More tutors certainly wouldn’t hurt if that’s what it came down to.

A Forest was swapped out for the new Barkchannel Pathway Flip, a straight upgrade. Feed the Pack is one of my favorite cards, but it can be very feast or famine. Its replacement, Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider , has a much higher floor while still being very threatening. Finally, Prime Speaker Zegana has been replaced by Toski, Bearer of Secrets . Both are great at drawing cards, but Toski's indestructibility and lower mana cost edge give him the edge. I really want my card draw to be cheaper.

Thanks for the suggestion, Balaam__! My thought goal with Bladed Pinions was to incorporate more evasion, as none of the Squirrels have any, and with Toski, Bearer of Secrets , it really pays to evade. Additionally, I don't want to spend a ton of mana to play or equip, so more powerful options, while alluring, don't seem better. I considered something like Pridemalkin , Tuskguard Captain , and Bramblewood Paragon , but none are directly related to squirrels, and all are greater targets for removal, so I went with a less powerful option? I'd love to hear your thoughts on all that along with how your suggestion of Lightning Greaves factors in!
