Quote from INYIL »can someone explain to me the Collective Brutality and Mind Stone slot picks? Mind Stone feels real durdly and I'd imagine that brutality is for a certain slew of MU's... Delver?
Quote from FeloniousCrap »Overall the deck seemed strong and I liked playing it, though I felt like my sideboard could use work. What matchups do you guys typically struggle with? I felt like RG Ponza was really hard, as getting multiple lands blown up sets this deck back pretty far. Maybe tron would be hard, though we do have a mix of discard and ghost quarters to keep them from casting giant things for a while. Tell me what you guys think, I'm definitely planning on bringing this deck to more events in the future.
Quote from SBurani »Nice to see that you liked Collective Brutality. I don´t feel this is a deck for 61 cards, why don´t you remove 1 Rest for the Weary to add the 2nd Pithing Needle, since now you kinda have MD life gain with CB ??
Quote from Etcherik »How does Tomb of the Spirit Dragon shape up for Lifegain; are we missing the critical mass of colourless creatures needed for it to be considered an effective option?

This is my current list after yesterdays small tournament.
I originally had 2 Tidehollow Scullers and 1 more IoK in the list and cut them for 3 Matter Reshapers as I think Sculler is only good as a 3-4 of and in combination with Displacer and 4 IoK 2 Thoughtseize + TKS are too much hand disruption.
Blight Herder felt awesome in many matchups as the tokens were awesome blockers, are great with Sorin, you keep three bodies when they remove the Blight Herder and they also produce mana.
I'm not sure about the sideboard yet, but I know I want to buy at least 2 Wraths of God / Day of Judgement. (Also going to add 1-2 Mind Stones Mainboard as I have Blood Moon decks in my meta)
Lili and Marsh Flats are out of my price league at the moment, I'm waiting for a reprint and already got the 4 BW fastlands in my preorder for Kaladesh.
My current Sideboard changes were made accordingly to my local meta and the decks (players) that show up 100% of the time:
Skred Red, Norin Soul Sisters, 2x Infect, Affinity, Dredge, U/R Delver, Grixis Control and monoU Tron.
Other decks that I play against from time to time are: Thopter/Sword Combo, 8whack, GR Zoo, Jeskai Ascendancy Gifts, Scapeshift, RW Lockdown/Landdestruction, BW Tokens, Cheerios and Goblins.
I originally wanted to play 3 Doom Blades in the Sideboard as I hit nearly every creature in my meta with it, but only had 2 in my collection so the 2 Collective Brutalities will probably be replaced by them.
I'm open for any suggestions.
