Yes! There are far too many tapped lands. I will definitely drop barren moor to 1 (which I already have done in my paper version of this deck) and evolving wilds to 3. I don't think quicksand is a good idea... I used to use that land but being colorless is just such a drawback for this deck that I would definitely never run more than 2.

I like the idea of mana elves a lot! I think they'd help the deck out for sure. Maybe I should run Elves of Deep Shadow as I seem tight on black mana a lot. I really should update this deck as the version I'm using is way better than what's up there right now. I've added Raven's Crime and Rootgrapple as well as one copy of Black Poplar Shaman

The only absurd thing about your comment is recommending me to drop Bosk Banneret !!! They consistently allow me to pull off some insane stuff with the deck as I can often cast Tilling Treefolk for one mana which is totally nuts. I love casting two bosks in one turn for 3 mana, and then getting out a Wickerbough Elder and his ability for 3 total mana the next turn.

Dropping Jaddi might be useful, she's only there to help counteract life loss from Street Wraith which is now unnecessary because in the latest version of this deck I have dropped the wraiths. They caused a lot of unnecessary life loss without much benefit and unearth doesn't work on them. I also stopped using Weed-Pruner Poplar because he was so expensive and very susceptible to lightning but you're right, once there's a few of them out they can become really useful. Since this deck is built for kitchen table magic I'm not going to have a sideboard, but if I did it would definitely have weed pruners in it :)

How's Grim Hireling doing for you, i was considering it but i'm trying out Morbid Opportunist at the moment!

skeletonkey8 i used to run Wickerbough Elder but found that the 1 snake i get for 5 mana to destroy 1 thing was not worth it, i am considering adding Llanowar Elves just because it's cheaper and really nice when it flips and attacks and destroys for free, great add.

Love the new primer update!

Soooo, hows life? =)

I read your new premier. lt reads Great! Lots of info and a new set of varnish over the old, which had lots of outdated combos. I enjoyed reading it and hearing your thoughts.

What have you though off the new cards?

Hows Blowfly Infestation?

Have you considered Plunge into Darkness for 3 mana every creature turns into 3 cards deep and you get to keep more basics in the deck over Tainted Pact, i guess at that price Grim Tutor is an option too but Plunge gives you life in a pinch.

With Tainted Pact, what do you think of Riftsweeper in case you exile something important while looking for an answer?

Have you tried Endurance yet? looks really good! What do you think of the idea of Dryad Arbor as a fetchable 0 mana sacable creature?

Seeing as your were already all in on Yawgmoth what about Young Wolf?

Why Outland Liberator  Flip over Wickerbough Elder?

Just a humble curiosity! Your very insightful =) Thank you in advance for your time =)

hey Spell_Slam!

I originally had empyrial armor in my list but in testing I consistently ended up with 1 card left in hand so I cut it.

I don't have any experience with predatory hunger but it does sound great in a multiplayer setting so ill test it out!

I like dawn charm the two mana is what turns me away from it. in a voltron deck such as this having a 1 mana protection spell in your starting hand vs a 2 mana one makes a huge difference.

as for new horizon, tapping for two mana of one color isn't ideal when the general cost bant. I would like to play my ramp before I get my general in play to insure I have mana to protect him which most of the time will invalidate the counter.

Wickerbough Elder needs a negative counter to be removed for his ability to work.

i don't understand why you don't have Wickerbough Elder. it's a treefolk and artifact or enchantment removal. also Lignify or Song of the Dryads, as flavor cards too.

This looks like a lot of fun!

Some creatures that I had a some success with in my old super-budget smash decks were Stampeding Elk Herd and Walker of the Grove. They might be fun here too!

For removal, I really like Wickerbough Elder and Mold Shambler; they can help thin the field and also provide a body that can swing in for damage later. I also like Mwonvuli Acid-Moss too as it ramps while also potentially taking out a myriad of really powerful lands that are really common in EDH. Though, Acid-Moss might be really hard to find and/or be much more expensive in your area :(

Explorer's Scope and Snake Umbra are can also be deceptively useful in any deck where attacking is it's main strategy.

In one of my other decks, I also had Taunting Elf, Shinen of Life's Roar, and Glaring Spotlight as budget ways to give your whole board mass-reach and close out games. They might be worth considering here as well?

This card is a little over $1 but if you ever have a little more to spend on a single card, Ulvenwald Tracker could be really nice here, especially with all your haste enablers!

Also feel free to dismiss all these recommendations! Your deck honestly looks really great and fun just as it is! :D

update 29-09-2020!


Throne of the God-Pharaoh for Nissa of Shadowed Boughs

Trying this Nissa out, it can get any of my combo creatures from hand or grave and can ramp a bit.

Wickerbough Elder for Assassin's Trophy

More efficient and cheap removal, Elder is too clunky

Swiftfoot Boots for Veil of Summer

Better overall card and protection

Cauldron of Souls for Phyrexian Reclamation

Cheaper cost for similar effect, I like the Cauldron with a sac outlet but i'm really trying to lower my curve!

What do you think of those changes!?

Beseech the Queen for Fiend Artisan
