Soul of the Harvest is a Beater that also could draw cards. I have Bane of Progress under a Beater category as well. The Great Henge could definitely be under draw power though, it's under good business because it honestly is just really good business.

I just took Noxious Revival out. It was serving both functions. There are a couple decks in my group that win from the graveyard so I've kept it in for a while. I have a few more creatures overall now, so recurring them is not as important currently.

Big Pig is a cheater, but I absolutely love him so he gets his own category. Also when I added him he was the only 5 drop creature.

Triumph is there as a finisher or as a way to get a very dangerous opponent out quickly. I like it in the deck. It is a good way to put more pressure on the board without overextending. If I'm casting it I'm ahead on board, no reason to get crazy with it. I would pay 4 mana to attempt to win on that turn pretty much all the time.

Yeah that Garruk's Uprising seems really good. I'm pretty stoked to pick up new stuff.

I didn't even know about the Elder Gargaroth. Damn that's wild. I will definitely be grabbing one of those. Thanks for looking out, buddy!

Hey there Brother!

So I have the extra dorks for things like Survival of the Fittest, Natural Order and Fauna Shaman. I think doubling up like that is just good business.

I don't use enchantments like Warstorm Surge because they are a little slow, and I have no guarantee they will stick around. I personally try not to have a turn where I play something at that cmc and then pass. I try to have my top-end be beaters that also have decent value effects to fill that void. Terror of the Peaks is pretty good for that; it's kind of just a better Warstorm honestly. I might have to try it out.

If it works for you though, that's awesome. Xenagos can honestly run a lot of stuff, as long as beaters exist. I saw Garruks Uprising in your list, have you used it much? It's something I'm probably going to pick it up here soon.

My meta is about the same as yours it sounds. We normally play at decently high level, but have both higher and lower level decks.

Yeah buddy, it's always good to chat with fellow Xenabros. Keep in touch, let me know of any wild, new, outlandish shit you come up with!

Yeah I think it is exactly what you described, a land that COULD be gas later. I'll probably grab it when I get new stuff next week. I honestly did not know it had the 3 life bit on it, that makes it a bit better. I thought it just came in tapped.

I'll keep an eye out for your update as well

Hey buddy, yeah I'm on the fence about Turntimber Symbiosis still. All of these spell/lands are better off being thought of as a land with some extra sauce. I think it's good for what we're doing I just don't know what it'd replace yet (almost certainly a forest). That and it's kind of a worse Genesis Wave and I don't even use that. I'm sure I'll test it out at some point though. The utility of a land being a potential spell is the only reason, like I said I don't think the spell effect itself is all that great. In my eyes it's a land first and spell last.

Also, I dislike these new lands on principle. I think they could promote poor deck building among newer players. Just my opinion though.

The land that is either red or green is cool. I probably won't pick it up just because I don't want to be flipping a land back and forth, and it would honestly be producing green most of the time anyway. I see nothing wrong with it, I'm just lazy.

Also, I'm about to update a few things. I'm waiting for ZNR to release so I can start grabbing cards from the last few sets all at the same time. So I'll probably pick these up just to see how I truly feel about them.
