It was perhaps among the saddest days of my life when I decided to cut Verdurous Gearhulk from my ever-more-powerful Atla Palani, Nest Tender deck. But in the end, I decided that beautiful card from one of my favorite set wasn't enough to counterbalance the mechanical weakness of it--IN THAT DECK, specifically. However, I bought a Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip to go in my Reyav, Master Smith deck (a decidedly sillier one than Atla), purely for the art and for the fact that it came from another of my favorite sets.

But I digress--um... actually I have no clue where I'm going with this.

Alright, I looked over your deck, and hear are some suggestions that I would make

  1. I would be wary of cards like Sprout Swarm and Shamanic Revelation that care about how many creatures you have because your deck is focused on sacrificing creatures.

  2. I'm curious as to why you have Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip in the deck because I don't see a way to easily flip it.

  3. I would replace Verdant Force with Tendershoot Dryad as the dryad is cheaper and can also buff all your saprolings if you have the city's blessing.

  4. I think your deck needs more land. 28 lands seems really low, even with all the ramp that you have.

  5. Adding more nonbasic lands like Savage Lands and Rugged Highlands to help with color fixing would greatly benefit your deck.

  6. I would recommend removing Saproling Cluster because paying 1 mana and discarding a card to get a 1/1 is a very bad deal.

  7. You might want to consider adding more removal. I would recommend Malicious Affliction as you can easily trigger morbid with your commander, Putrefy, and Dreadbore.

  8. I would also put in some boardwipes like Blasphemous Act because even though you plan to have a lot of creatures on your board sometimes an opponent will have an even bigger board and having a boardwipe to deal with them is important.

I hoped this helped your deckbuilding and if you have any other questions feel free to ask!

Next step is card-draw and card-advantage. Unfortunately, the Boros colors are the worst at drawing cards. Graveyard recursion is a type of card advantage, so Colfenor's Urn can count. I've never seen that card before! Nice find and good instincts!

Here are some options for you.

First up, the cards I own that I'm willing to part with:

Seer's Sundial - Staff of Nin - Farsight Mask - Key to the City - Infiltration Lens - Mask of Memory - Tome of Legends - Outpost Siege - Khorvath's Fury - Humble Defector - Chandra, Flamecaller - Magus of the Wheel


Cards I don't have that you should consider:

Tectonic Giant is mandatory! He's so good! Protector of the Crown is on-theme too--highly recommend.

Bonders' Enclave would be worth picking up, I think.

Browbeat - Loreseeker's Stone - Arcane Encyclopedia - Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip - Ignite the Future - Reforge the Soul - Wheel of Fate - Mind's Eye (used to be the gold-standard! Very mana-inefficient though) - Icon of Ancestry (interesting choice since it has the anthem) - Rogue's Gloves - Well of Lost Dreams (great choice with your commander!) - Coveted Jewel (ramp and draw! Unreliable and mana-expensive, but chaotic and fun!) - Mangara, the Diplomat - Runehorn Hellkite - Dragon Mage - Knollspine Dragon - Herald's Horn - Endless Atlas (a bit suspect in two-color decks unless your colors are very skewed or you have lots of Renegade Map-type cards) - Bag of Holding - Arch of Orazca - Geier Reach Sanitarium - Mazemind Tome


Underworld Breach, Sunbird's Invocation, and Stolen Strategy might count as card-advantage, should you feel jaunty. Stolen Strategy is definitely a fun card and get you fodder for Brion's throwing.

Howling Mine + Inspiring Statuary is kinda funny. Probably not worth it though.
