Quote from Driemer84 »Any plans for Growing Rites of Itlamaoc? My meta doesn't have a lot of blue so I cut Carpet of Flowers for Mirri, but Sandtum Prelate can probably go as well. I'm a little concerned about casting Rites with tax effects in play, but digging for a creature along with the potential mana it can produce seems worth it.
Not a big fan of Growing Rites of Itlimoc, even though I do like the improved Gaea's Cradle, it would be easier to achieve in a dedicated token deck or any build of Prossh, Skyraider of Kher. It's got too many factors involved in making it flip, and Gift of the Gargantuan doesn't have me excited.
Tocatli Honor Guard on the other hand is interesting at very least, if not for hurting my nemesis Prossh. And Deadeye Tracker has fallen on my radar, however Scavenging Ooze is practically the only thing protecting my life total, but the card quality is very appealing.
