Quote from CobraShuttleAll of this has forced me to make some tough cuts and I still have a good dozen good cards that I hated to cut.
Quote from OCPunisherWelcome to the EDH format. You'll be doing a lot of that. There are over 20,000 different cards in print, and you get to pick only 60 of them.
Might I suggest playing a few more spells that reanimate some of your opponents' things after you blow them up? Seems a little counter-productive to play your stuff, blow it up, and then recur it. I'd try something like Geth, Chainer, or Beacon of Unrest.
Quote from Molten SharkI would definitely recommend Geth over Puppeteer Clique. He's an evasive beater, he can permanently steal as many creatures and artifacts as you have mana for, and he helps you resist gravehate by taking from other people's graveyards instead of your own (not to mention people might be more hesistant to crack that Relic if you can mill them for a bunch in response). Since you can't recur either with Sun Titan or Reveillark, you might as well go for the stronger one, which imo is Geth.
Quote from Throst54Farhaven Elf and Yavimaya Dryad over seedguide ash and ondu giant for ramp.
If you like spike feeder, you might like Spore Frog to go along with your genesis.
Phyrexian Reclamation and Tortured Existence is more recursion that lowers your curve, and i would argue to replace sheoldred and debtor's knell with them.
True conviction is strong, but its a horrible topdeck when you need to gain life and you either cant afford to attack or dont have a creature.
Pelakka Wurm is a great creature to reccur, gains life, draws card, and trample is relevant in a format where chump blockers are everywhere.
Miren, the Moaning Well is another great way to gain life off of used etb triggers that you might want to reccur.
Wurmcoil Engine is my favorite of the bunch
