I stumbled across a Recross the Paths and I realized it would be perfect for this deck. I have a huge average CMC, I can probably guess who would have the least amount of average CMC and win a clash or three for multiple turns of ramp. Oath of Lieges has been cumbersome and it tends to make the games go on as people continually have ramp, deck thinning and then book keeping to keep track of on top of that.
I never activated Kefnet and I rarely held his attention. He gets the axe. I put another flyer that I think will appreciate the deck's high average CMC. I only have hesitation towards the double black so early.
Queen Marchesa missed more than hit, even if she introduced the amazing Monarch mechanic. Atraxa will help me defend, gain life and trade with something nasty. She's amazing even before her ability to Proliferate.
I'm toying with the idea of going down to 5 basics and put in five more trilands. Again, this is supposed to be my most casual deck so I don't have a problem by going with the most terrible option. Wayward does something late game, unlike Sakura, and multiple extra land drops over turns could net me more explosive plays than the Elder's once burst of color fixing.
I had forgotten Blue Braids existed until I stumbled across her in the wild, she does what this deck wants to do: help newbies, enable my insanity and be a Legend. Atraxa was just one hell of a body, but she doesn't compare to some of the insanity that rests in the deck.
I cut Lurking Predators because it was inconsistent with how often I would get hits. I somehow thought Guild Feud was more consistent, probably because I'm crazy. So, cutting the random Feud with Lurking Predators which will help churn out silly threats at all times.
With only five basics, Thaumatic had to go. I'm a bit sad, as it is pretty neat. I had to dig deep to find something that ramps nonbasics and decided to go with Into the Wilds over Clear the Land due to it being a permanent.
After seeing what Tithe does in other decks, I'm certain it has a home in Jodah as part of the 'Haymaker Tribal' that the deck is apart of. Progenitus is pretty silly if it's cheated out but otherwise it is not worth the cost.
